Cheering Crowds Welcome Hoover
Back to Palo Alto, There to
Quietly Cast His Vote
(By Associated Press) .
PALO ALTO, Cal., Nov. 5.-Her-
bert Hoover left his campaign for
the presidency in the hands of the
voters tonightsand sat down in the
comfort of his Palo Alto home to
await their decision.
With three months of work and
almost 13,000 miles of traveling;
behind him, the Republicans can-
didate rached the end of his
homewaikl path here late today
and tomorrow he will join the great
army of voters at the polls.
His final plea to the electorate
was in the form of a 15-minute talk
over the radio from the study of
his home tonight. This was to be
non-partisan in character, it was
announced,.and in the shape of an'
appeal to the citizens of the coun-.

Covers Variety of Subjects
In his discussions, the candidate
had doubtless a variety of subjects
but with chief stress laid upon agri-
culture, the tariff, prosperity, pro-
hibition, labor, immigration and
the co-operation of government
and industry. And through all of
his speeches there had been a cur-
rent of facts which considered each
of the phases in the light of its
importance to the American home.
His first discussion of what he
considered are the issues involved
in the campaign was made in his
acceptance speech in Palo Alto al-
most three months ago. He turned
from that to lay before the people I
his farm relief proposal over the
radio from his birthplace at West
Branch, Iowa.
His return trip across the con-
tinent saw the delivery of his last
important speech of the campaign
at' St. Louis, with a sceondard-3
dress at Cumberland, Md., Louis-
ville,. Ky., and Pueblo, Coo.
The last stage of his home-com-
ing trip brought Hoover into the
borders of his dopted state, where
he was welcomed by its governor,
C. C. Young, and acclaimed by
,thousands, not only at Palo Alto
but at the various cities through
various cities through which his
special train passed.
In brief rear platform talks to
not only at Palo Alto but at the
each of these crowds, the nominee
told them that the big job ahead
now was to vote.
Speaks At Sacramento I
"You have arrived at your own
convictions," he said at Sacramen-
to, the state capitol. "You have
yet to perform the greatest peace-
time obligation that an American
citizen owes to his country- that
is, to go to the polls and to vote
independen ly as each of your in-
dividual consciences direct.
"Whatever the conscience of
America determines, that will be

campaign which had carried him
into 29 states in every section of
the country except the solid south.
His three trips across the continent
and four other political swings had

Michigan Alumni Are C
In Elections For
Three of the four candidates for
Governor and U. S. Senator from
Michigan to be voted on today have
received degrees from the Univer-
sity, while the fourth attended law
,school here for a year, a study of
the careers of the Democratic and
Republican candidates reveals.
Fred W. Green, Michigan's twenty-
seventh governor, up for re-election
on the Republican ticket today,
graduated from the Law school
subsequent to a two and a half year
college course at Ypsilanti Normal,
in 1898, just in time to enter the
army for service in the Spanish-
American war.
William A. Comstock, the Demo-
crat's nominee for governor, grad-
uated from the University in 1899
with the degree of PH. B. Since
that time he has been a very active
alumnus, being a member of the
University of Michigan club of De-
troit and serving as president of
that organization in 1925-26.
United States Senator Arthur H.
Vandenberg of Grand Rapids, Re-
publican candidate to succeed him-
self, entered the University Law
school but was forced to withdraw
at the end of his first year because
of his family's financial troubles
after the panic of 1893. Vanden-
Board Of Control Authorizes New
Golf Course To Occupy
100 Acres
Preliminary steps for the con-
struction of the proposed Univer-
sity golf course were taken by the
Board of Control of athletics Satur-
day at the first meeting of the
year. Don Ross, a leading golf
course architect was hired to make
a preliminary sketch of the con-
templated course.
The course will have 18 holes, and
will be built on the site of
the present University course
and additional land secured by the
board. In all, more than 100 acres
will be devoted to the course.
It is anticipated that the new
course will be one of the finest in
the country. The land is of ideal
condition, and the architect hired
is one of the leading in the country,
according to the Athletic associa-
tion officials.
Officers for the coming year were
also selected at this meeting. Those
who served last were again given
their positions. Prof. R. W. Aigler,
is chairman, Prof. F. H. Frayer,
vice-chairman, and Fielding H.
Yost, secretary. These three officers
and Dick Spindle, '29, a student
representative and Charles B.

This is election day, summoning the populace to its civic duty
of electing its governing officers. Once again it must decide whether
the helm of national leadership shall be entrusted to Republicans
or Democrats.
It has to chose between Herbert Hoover and Charles Curtis
on one side, and Alfred E. Smith and Joseph T. Robinson on the
other. By the ballot the electorate must also declare its pref-
erence in electing 37 senators, 435 representatives, 34 governors and
other state officers.
More than 40,000,000 strong, the electorate is ready to ex-
press its will, amply prepared to right its mandate after months of
attentive listening to debates on the issues and of close scrutiny of
the candidates themselves. It has weighed the evidence and heard
the closing arguments/ of the
standard-bearers, there remains
to the beleaguered voter only the
task of decision.
