“The only thing we are going to do

Chairman Jeffress said. "Section 49 t of
the Motorvehicle laws of 1931 provides
that the front headlights of an au

they will throw a beam of light 'un

and on a level road sufficient to ren
der clearly discernable a person 200
feet ahead but shall not project a

the Highway Patrol all the law It
needs to arrest the drivers of any
cars with glaring and blinding' head
lights. In order that drivers may be
sure they will not be arrested or stop
ped. we are suggesting they use a
certain type of appliance that elimin
ates glare.
"It is of course not compulsory for
drivers to use these appliances, and
they may use any other appliance or

By CHARLES P. STEWART
Central Frees Staff Writer
Washington, Feb. 20. The anti-
Roosevelt Democrats bent on splitting
their party wide open?
They speak of A1 Smith's attitude
as one of “rule or ruin,’ 'and predict
ruin if thei rfavorlte is defeated at
the Jeffersonian national convention
To be sure, it ie only the assump
tio nos the anti-Rooeevelties that A1
Smiths plan is to prevent the gover
nor’s nomination next June, as head
of the Democratic ticket.
That is what they do assume, any
way, and it is true enough that tltyere
is an anti-Roosevelt element, wheth
er or not A1 Smith is its sirategist
in-chief.
And the Question the Roosevelt-itee
are asking is:
Do the anti-Roosevelt-ites Want to
disrupt the Democratic- party? This,
they say, is just what the result will
be if the antl-Roosevelt-ites succeed
in blocking the governor's nomina
tion.
To a dtsipteregted . bystander, it
rather appears that the antl-Rooee
velt-ltes have an answer tor this In
terrogation .even though they may
have made up their minds to fight
the governor's nomination to the last
ditch at the June convention.
Far from wanting to disrupt the
party, the anti-Roosevelt-ltes want
the Democrats to win in November.
It so happens that they believe their
chance of doing so will be reduced to
a maximum with Governor Roosevelt
as their presidential candidate.
Thus their objection to his nomina
tion is not quite so wanton as the
Rrxv'-velt-ites in their irritation, im
ply ilr t it is.
If ar.y.hin.'T, the anti-Roosevelt-ites
are more logical in their opposition to
the governor’s claims than are the
Roosevelt-1 tea in their support of
them. The Roosevelt-ites simply say
that they like the governor and let it
go at that. The "antis" explain in de
tail what they think is the matter
with him.
It hardly can be denied that Gov
ernor Roosevelt originally was presi
dentially mentioned because of his
prestige as governor of New York.
The anti-Roosevelt-ites recognize that
