Democratic Candidate To Complete
Campaign In New York And
New Jersey
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 30.-Removed
for a time from the shouts of the
thousands upon thousands who
welcomed him along a route which
zigzagged for 11,000 miles to the
heart of the nation, Gov. Alfred E.
SSmith spent today getting ready for
the intensive speaking drive with
which he will finish his campaign.
The Democratic nominee also
had an oppotrunity to take stock
of the work up to date and to ac-
certain for himself something about
conditions in his home state of
New York and the neighboring
state of New Jersey-the territory
he had selected in which to close
his drive for the presidency.
From the first these states have
been regarded as debatable ground
with both parties claiming them as
their own, until now, the governor
has been forced to a large extent
to rely upon reports brought to him
as to the situation in each.
Eyes 59 Electoral Votes
Tonight, however, he was in a
position to cast his own eye, sea-
soned by a further of a century of
experience in New York politics,
over the two states which have
alone have a total of 59 electoral
votes at their command.
The governor's program calls for
aninvasion of New Jersey tomor-
row with a speech at Newark that
night. It is one of the cities visited
by his rival, Herbert Hoover, in his
bid for the Atlantic seaboard vote.
What the Democratic candidate
will discuss has not been disclosed.
Some weeks ago he proposed to
take up the subject of labor. In
as much as he had but three ad-
dresses remaining, and as he has
said that New York state issues
will be tackled in the Brooklyn
streets Friday night, it is regarded
as possible that labor may be the
theme of the Newark address.
May Touch Several Topics
On the other hand, a number of
those who have been accompany-
ing the nominee on his campaign
travels, look for him to touch upon
a group of questions, much as he
did last night in Baltimore, where
he rapped the Anti-Saloon League,
the Ku Klux Klan, and the Repub-
lican position on foreign relations.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 30-With
the air filled with the clamor of
the last, weeks of the campaign,
Herbert Hoover, in the character-
istic fashion, worked quietly today
at his, general headquarters and
his "S" street home welding into
shape four political shots which he
will hurl into the enemy ranks as
he travels westward to cast his
vote on November 6 at Stanford
University in California.
To all intents and purposes, Mr.
Hoover's activities in Washington
are almost ended, so far as the
1928 campaign is concerned, al-
though his personal headquarters
will remain open until the night

before election with James Francis
Burke, general counsel of the Re-
publican National committee in.
Hoover Is Confident
Mr. Hoover is leaving for the
West Thursday confident that he
will return here to be inaugurated
as president on March 4, his friends
and political associates for several
days have constantly brought him
messages of assurance of victory.
Among the callers at the head-
quarters today was James A. Gar-
field, of Cleveland, son of the mar-
tyred president, who reported that
sentiment in the middle-western
states he recently had visited, was
strongly favorable to the Hoover-
Curtis ticket.
Garfield issued a statement in
which he charged the Democratic
standard-bearer had misrepresent-
ed Hoover's attitude on several of
the leading issues of the campaign.

Frank Wilson, Colored
Discusses Proble
"When I am on the stage I am
almost entirely unconscious of the
presence of any audience out in
front of the foot-lights," declared
Frank Wilson, noted negro actor,
who appeared at the Whitney the-
ater yesterday in the title role of
"Porgy," the popular production of
the New York Theater Guild. "My
only re-action to the presence of
an audience is perhaps that after
the first few minutes on the stage
I can readily sense whether or not
I have an appreciative audience.
and whether they care prticularly
for humor or pathos.
"The future for drama in this
country certainly appears to be
very bright indeed," Wilson con-
tinued, " and I am anxious to see
what developments will come about.
As far as the negro plays are con-
cerned, I wish it would not be con-
sidered an essential of the popular
negro plays, such as "In Abraham's
Bosom" and "Porgy," that the play
end tragically rather than in a
pleasant manner. There are many
opportunities for the conception of
good negro plays which could be
pouplar and nevertheless be pat-
terned with a happy ending, show-
ing the joy that exists in the negro,
along side of the sadness."
Asked what he thought the atti-

Threatened "Pink-eye" Epidemic
Under Control Asserts 1
Dr. Forsythe
Increasing g e n e r a 1 sickness
among thei student body is report-
ed by Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, di-
recting physician of the. University
Health Service, although no partic-
ular type of ailment predominates.
The threatened epidemic of "pink-
eye" last week seems to be under
control, he asserted.
Speaking of the routine physical
examinations of students entering
the University, Dr. Forsythe ex-
pressed satisfaction with the im-
proved method of conducting the
work inaugurated this year. A to-
tal of 3,268 examinations were
made by the Health Service staff,
including 1,884 men, 869 women,
and 515 re-examinations.
During the period between July
1 and Oct. 1 the infirmary cared for
75 patients, and 39 student patients
were sent to the hospital. Included
in this group were 16 requiring1
major operations and 11 tonsillec-
Hunters Injuredy
As Season Opens
Last Thursday the rabbit seasonc
opened with a bang, and that same
bang sent four men to the Univer-
sity hospital on Sunday full of
buck-shot. There is a reason why
Sunday should be the chosen day
for such a thing to occur. Sundayi
was the first opportunity that thec
majority of men had to go huntinge
and as a result Washtenaw county,s
one of the few counties which per-
mit Sunday hunting, was crowdedc
with gunmen.c
Removing shot from a person is
no easy task, and the University
hospital was kept very busy oblig.
ing the four victims in that respect.1
Three of these suffered only minor
injuries like lacerated arms and
legs, but the fourth is in a serious
condition. He was shot in the ab-
domen and the lead penetrated
some of his vital organs. Little
hope is given for his recovery.

New York Repetory Company Will
Open Special Series Here Late
In November
Four plays will be presented by
the Theater Guild of New York in
a special season series during the
month of November and the first
week of December. The perfor-
mances here will be under the aus-
pices of the Michigan Theater
League which has placed the sea-
son tickets on sale at the Print and
Book Shop.
This is the second season of the
Theater Guild's Repertory com-
pany. It was founded last year in
response to a demand from cities
which said they would like to see
samples of the Theater Guild's pro-
ductions. Faced with the impossi-
bility of maintaining its New York
schedules and touring extensively,
the Guild organized the company
which will play here and gave
to them the policy of touring the
Guild's major successes.
The repertoire for this season
holds four plays, all of them highly
successful in New York. One of
them is Bernard Shaw's "The Doc-
tor's Dilemma," a diatribe against
the foibles of the medical profes-
sion; another is Sidney Howard's
"Ned McCobb's Daughter," wherein
the new American meets the old;
there will be the famous "John
Ferguson" play of St. John Ervine,
the eminent English critic who is,
this winter, officiating as guest
critic in New York for The World.
Finally, there is "The Second Man,"
a high comedy by S. N. Behrman,
whose new play, "Meteor" will be
produced by the Guild this season
in New York.
The players who will interpret
these plays are well known. Eliza-
beth Risdon, leading woman, has
acted with the Guild in many of
its New York productions, "Pygma-
lion," .Heartbreak House," Right
You Are If You 'Think You Are" and
"The Silver Cord."
Robert Keith, leading man, was
in the original production of Eu-
gene O'Neill's "Great God Brown"
and in the revival of "Beyond the
Horizon." Last season he was in a
comedy called "Jimmie's Women."
Among the other well known
players who will be in the cast are
included Edwin Moswell, Branden
Evans, Warburten Gamble, and Peg
