Washington. Oct. 24. Governor
Roosevelt frequently has been referred
to as politically lucky.
He certainly has had the “breaks'*
of late on the power issue.
His position on this question look
ed hazardous for his presidential as
pirations, as recently as five months
ago.
It was a position which won him
the pre-convention indorsement, as he
has had the post-convention support
of Senator George W. Norris of Ne
braska. Senator Norris, as. everyone
knows, rates as a radical, and espe
cially In his attitude toward the, pow
er interests.
Now the approval of the Nebraska
senator and other statesmen of his
type is a valuable asset at present
in the farm belt, which normally is
ultra-p»ogreasive in spots and which
promises to be uniformity ultra-pro
gressive this year. It did not seem so
sure, however, that such backing
would not prove to be a liability to
the governor in the comparatively
conservative east.

Marshall. Oct. 24. (AP)— C. M.
Blankenship, Medison county school
superintendent, who was asked to re
sign Saturday following a hearing on
charges of “disreputable conduct,” re
sumed his regular duties here today,
refusing to leave his position.
The county board of education,
which conducted the hearing, asked
for the resignation. The board stated
that while the charges against Blan
kenship did not lead to conviction,
the evidence did not “by any means
allay suspicions in the minds of the
people.”
Meanwhile. Miss Eluise Price, Blan
kenship's secretary- and the woman
involved in the case, was not at the
office today.
Blankenship said he would appeal
his case to the State Boprd of Equali
zation at Raleigh.
