FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1932 NUMBER THIRTY-SEVEN HERALD— VOL. XX HOOVER MAKES SHARP REPLY TO CRITICS IN HIS SECOND SPEECH ADDRESSES MONSTER CROWD AT CLEVELAND SATUR DAY NIGHT I, j SETS OPPONENTS RIGHT ON DEPRESSION FACTS; EX POSES FALSEHOODS President Hoover, speaking at Cleveland, Ohio, Saturday night as serted while a police-estimated throng of 40,000 persons listened, that democratic leaders had cir culated "absolutely untrue" re ports as to the origin of the na tion's economic strain, and had is sued "contemptible statements" concerning his personal career. Given a two-minute ovation as he entered the auditorium—the same hall where Calvin Coolidge was nominated in 1924—the presi dent time and again launched out in his lengthy address against statements he quoted from speech es by "the democratic candidate. He asserted the democratic nom inee had sought wrongly to give the impression that the stock mar ket crash was "the prime cause of this disaster." He characterized as statements" quotations from democratic candidate" "amazing "the that the Smoot-Hawley tariff was "one of the most important factors in the present world-wide depression." Interrupted time and again by applause, the chief executive's speech came as the climax of a day in which he spoke from the rear platform of his special train as it crossed four states to throngs es timated by police total more than 100 , 000 . He said he had come to Cleve land because of "the depth of my feeling" that it is of "vital inter est to the nation that the war a gainst economic forces now in pro gress should be carried on under a republican administration." The crowd laughed and applaud ed when Mr. Hoover said demo crats ignored Russia's dumping "in a desperate effort to secure money with which to carry on—shall I call it-—a new deal?" There was another laugh as the president,, telling of the difficulty in predicting a panic, said he had not noticed any "democratic Jere miahs." "That's telling 'em," some one shouted from the audience when DAGMAR MAN ENJOYED FARM U. CONVENTION Henry B. Syverud of Dagmar, who represented the East Coalridge local, at the Farm Union, has writ ten The Herald expressing his ap preciation of the hospitality of Wolf Point as extended to the con vention. Andrew Dahl and Ole Boe accompanied him as visitors at the convention. Mr. Syverud wrote, in part, "Will state that we had a wonderful time, and that your city treated us just fine. In regard to KGCX broadcasts, our neighbors state that the ones sent out in the daytime came through O. K. but the evening had too much inter ference. so very little was listen ed to, much to our regret. "The highway No. 2 from Poplar is surely a fine boulevard to trav el on and you folks are truly for tunate in having this in such good condition. "Thank you, one and all for the Sincerely, courtesies extended. Henry B. Syverud." RETURN FROM CONVENTION The delegation who attended the Degree of Honor convention at Butte last week reutrned Sunday afternoon. They had a very good time, but had bad weather for the trip both going and coming home. They ran into heavy snow in the western part of the state, and trav eled through the rain on the return trip, but the excellence of highway No. 2 made the latter part of the trip easy in spite of the rain. Those who made the trip were Mrs. Jim Mrs. Mrs. Chas. Howe, Carroll, Chas. Warmbrod, Mrs. J. C. Yan dell and Mrs. Lennie Reed. COMMISSIONER ADAMS W. C. (Bill) Adams of the Froid vicinity is in town today. Mr. Ad-1 ams is the Republican nominee to succeed himself as county com missioner. He has filled the office by appointment the last 16 months. JUDGE AYERS TO SPEAK Judge Roy E. Ayers of Lewis town, democratic candidate for con gress, will speak over KGCX Mon-1 day evening, beginning at seven o'clock. He will speak from his car on the street at four o'clock in the afternoon. Mr. Hoover quoted the democratic candidate concerning the stock market crash and added that "the vast majority" of stock transac tions "originated or took place in the state of New York" of which Î Franklin Roosevelt is governor. Standing in the same edifice in which Calvin Coolidge was nomin ated in 1924, the president time after time launched out directif at statements he attributed to "the democratic candidate," Franklin D. Roosevelt. Then, turning to his own person al record, he described as "calum ny" a statement issued by the demo cratic national committee" to the speakers. He said the statement implied he had "engaged in the slavery of human beings" through contracting cheap Chinese labor in his early engineerig days* "I happen to have in the files in Washington, from the man who first penned those lies." he said, "a statement under oath, humbly and abjectly withdrawing them." "Such' contemptible statements in a political campaign would be ignored were it not that they were issued by the authority of the democratic national committee, and they would be of no interest to the American people except that it is proposed that a political party shall be placed in power over one hundred and twenty millions of people on the basis of votes se cured in this manner." At the outset, the president said his address would be devoted large (Turn to page 2, col 5) SEN. WHEELER PASSES THROUGH WOLF POINT Senator and Mrs. B. K. Wheel er passed through Wolf Point this afternoon en route from Sidney to Glasgow where a democratic rally and banquet will be held this ev ening. John Coffey, Dr. Cloud, P. R. Dougherty and W. J. Kearney and possibly some others drove to Glasgow from here. The Wheelers had been making a swing around the southeastern part of Montana and had a good deal of driving over muddy unsur faced roads, snow was 13 inches deep, and at Baker the Senator ran into a young blizzard. At Miles City the Thomas E. Carey, democratic candidate for railroad and public service commission, was in Wolf Point today calling on a number of people. He was also on his way to the Glasgow meeting. LAUGH AND GROW YOUNG WITH WILL "Me, an actor? They're kiddin' you," once remarked Will Rogers. "If they can find a role that's sorta like me and then let me be natur al, I'm all right, otherwise I'm punk." And this is the best reason to be found for the appeal and delightful ness of his new Fox production, "Young As You Feel", which will be shown Tues., Wed., Thurs., at the Liberty theatre. Rogers is Rog ers, and as such he has no equal on the screen today. His character of Lemuel Morehouse fits the hum orist perfectly. It affords him his best opportunity to be just what he is, a plain everyday. American father and citizen. Admirers of Rogers will be ning of "dressy" clothes in this hilarious comedy drama, which was adapted from George Ade's well known stage play "Father And the Boys". Rogers appears all dressed up in stiff collars, boiled shirts, topper and cane. And after one re covers from the original shock, the effect is quite pleasing since Rog ers' athletic figure sets off admir I ably the latest Bond Street modes, i In the chief feminine role, Fiti ( Dorsay repeats her initial success with Rogers in their first talking picture, "They Had To See Paris." ; Her striking allure and French vivacity accounts for much mirth - and genuine entertainment. GEORGE KENT RETURNS i George Kent, who eight years ago was employed at Huxsol's, in charge of the jewelry and watch department, has returned and is again in his old position. He has been employed at Fort Benton for : some time. BAIREYS FEARED LOST IN STORM! FLYING ANNOUNCER LANDS, AND NON-ARRIVAL CAUSES ANXIETY People of Wolf Point and the surrounding country were filled with anxiety Sunday afternoon when it was learned that Mr. and Mrs. George Bairey, flying from Scobey, were apparently lost in the storm. They had attended the Legion convention at Scobey Sat urday and with Dewey Lowers, fly ing the old plane, started for home about 11:30 Sunday morning. It was clear at Scobey, but about ten out they ran into dense fog or low hung clouds. The two planes kept together for some distance farther., when, suddenly Lowers missed the Bairey plane. He flew back, but was unable to locate it and finally came on to Wolf Point, but re turned to again take up the search, which continued until dark. Visi bility was very poor Sunday. Fly ing was dangerous. While it was raining a steady drizzle in Wolf of the afternoon, in the Cottonwood country, 35 miles north, where the Bairey plane was last heard, it was snowing. Round and round circled the Lowers plane, vainly trying to locate the plane on the ground. Word was sent out through KG CX requesting farmers along the Cottonwood to join in the hunt for the Baireys. Cars were preparing to go out from Wolf Point to take up the search when George Bairey himself walked into the radio sta tion and a joyful reunion was held. Flying through the fog, Mr. Bairey was not sure that he could get over the Cottonwood Divide "hump" in safety. So he landed, walked to the nearest farmhouse, the Giersdorf place, and rode into town with H. E. Fossen who was bringing several of the young peo ple from that neighborhood in to attend school. A flat tire and slow progress on account of the muddy condition of the roads, prevented the party from reaching town un til after six. And was it a grand and glorious feeling, after all the anxiety of the afternoon, to have the Baireys appear none the worse for the ex perience? Ask Ed Krebsbach.

HOLDS HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL ANNUAL CONVENTION ' EMINENT OFFICIALS SPEAK ON MARKETING AND ORGANIZING Favored by three days of Mon tana's finest weather the State Farmers Union annual convention was declared a big success at its adjournment, late Saturday even The officers and delegates crowded a large amount of work into the three days. Addresses of officials and heads ing. 0 f terminal organizations filled much of the afternoons and the forenoons were devoted to routine business. The Farmers Holiday and mark eting strike movement aroused more interest than any other one subject. A State Holiday associa tion was formed at a meeting at Great Falls early in September but did not become active. At the state convention it was revived and the organization revamped. Horsford of Circle was elected pres ident and C. J. Barrett of Hobson was retained as secy-treas. A col lection was taken to put some money in the Holiday association treasury. It amounted to $307.46. The Holiday organization is dis tinct and separate from the Farm Union. The bylaws adopted by the Holiday executive committee are published in this paper complete.

Talbott, president of the North Dakota State Farmers Union, de livered peppery speeches urging the farmers to action in marketing strike movement. An interesting report on the jun ior Union organization as it is in North Dakota was made by Mrs. Edwards of North Dakota. A pro posal to set up a junior Union in Montana was endorsed. M. W. Thatcher, manager of the National Crain corporation and Emil Sifestad, general manager of the Farmers Union Terminal asso ciation spoke Friday afternoon. E. C. Egley of the livestock depart ment spoke Friday evening. On Farm Program Mr. Thatcher reviewed the hist ory of the National Grain corpora tion and claimed it was the most successful, with the possible ex ception of the cotton corporation der the marketing act. The had had $53,000,000 from the board but had paid it back except $16,000,000. He paid his respects to any who sought to use an organization for political ends. I am not a Republi can or Democrat, he said, I do not claim to carry the vote any organ ization in my vest poccket. I loath anyone who tries to drag the or ganization he works for into poli tics and deliver it to either party. Emphasizing his point that neith er the democrat nor the republican party offers a satisfactory solution for the farmers' problems, he said: "Your politics are a farm home with cost of production so that you can live with your family in peace and happiness. The only way you will get anywhere in politics is to write your own program— a pro gram that some politician will ride to everlasting glory on when b*» puts it over as his own plan." He asserted that (.-very candi dite on the two major parties was either dumb, or uninformed or in sincere with respect to American agriculture, for not one of these candidates says that he will make it his business to see that every American dollar shall be preserved for the American's use. "I hope to live long enough to see a Farm Union program so pos itive, so clear, that there will be no mistaking what it is all about, so that the farmer from Oklahoma can converse about their program and they will talk the same lang uage. I hope that the Farm Union as a national organization will have j a program so well known and so I widely advertised that every Con I gressman will know what it is," 1 he said. | Kelly Re-elected President J.
