Hoover Carries Personal Appeal to
Voters dif Dixie Before
Going to Boston
(By Associated Press)
ALBANY, N. Y., Oct. 5-As the
time grew nearer today for him to
start out on his second campaign
tour Gov. Smith continued silent
as to his detailed plans. He devot-
ed several hours to a study of train
schedules and other details in con-
nection with the journey, but at
the end of the day announced he
could not promise whether the
itinerary would be ready.
"There will be nothing on the
itinerary today at least," he told
newspapermen at the daily con-
ference at the executive mansion.
"There are toot many details to be
straightened out. Halls, radio ar-
rangements, and all that are more
or less, up in the air."
Will Confer With Leaders
It was indicated that the Demo-
cratic presidential nominee would
leave Albany some time Monday
for conferences in New York with
party leaders before boarding his
special train there for the cam-
paign swing that probably will keep
him on the road, with the excep-
tion of a day or two back here in
the capitol, until the Saturday
night before election.
The governor has emphasized
that any announcement regarding
places and dates for his tour that
do not emanate for him should be
considered as only tentative selec-
tions and under no circumstances
are they to be considered as offi-
cial until he says the word. This
course is understood to have been
adopted because of the possibility
that the, last minute revision in
the schedule might cause some
embarrassment if it were decided
not to visit this or that city on,
the tentative list.
Seeks Recreation
Anxious to get a little recreation
this afternoon, Gov., Smith appear-
ed at a press conference togged out
in new knickers and without wait-
ing for the questioning to begin,
warned the newspapermen to
"speed it up and let me get out to
play some golf."
"I started out to the club the
other day," he explained, "but it
was so late I never got there."

WASHINGTON, Oct. 5.-Leaving

Indians Starve;
Want State Aid
Conservation Commission Learns
Michigan Redskins Unable
To Get Food
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, Mich., Oct. 5-Reports
of suffering among Indians in the
northern part of the state were
laid before the state conservation
commission today.
Howard Chilson of Detroit, asser-
ted Indians in the Indian river dis-
trict of St. Agnes are in such dire
straights that the children are
dying from starvation. The time
has passed when they can gain a
livelihood from the woods and
streams and they can find nothing
to do, he said.
There was a question as to
whether any state department can
help the Indians if the reports of
their conditions are found to be
correct. It has been claimed, in
past petitions by the Indians, that
the state has no right to enforce
the game laws against them as the
original guarantee them the right
to hunt and fish when they
Robinson To Assail
Hoover And Borah
(By Associated Press)
CLOVIS, N. M., Oct. 5-The
records of Herbert Hoover and
Senator William E. Borah of Idaho,
who is now stumping the country
in behalf of the Republican presi-
dential candidate, have been' selec-
ted by Senator Joe Robinson, the
Democratic vice-presidential can-
didate, as subjects for attack in his
opening speech in New Mexico.
Mr. Robinson late today entered
the state which has been put down
by Democrats as one to be found in
the Smith-Robinson column in No-
vember. They claim that the shift
of the state to Coolidge four years
ago was brought about through the
entrance of LaFollette into the
campaign, and pointec out that
the combined votes of Davis and
LaFollette exceeded by 3,340 that
polled by Coolidge. The Davis
vote was 28,542 and LaFollette

NEW YORK, Oct. 5-The gale-
battered Dutch freighter Celaeno,
with six of her lifeboats gone and
one of her crew of 35 dead, today
was proceeding toward Boston u-
der her own steam.
"S. S. Celaeno to all ships," said
the last message relayed from the
little freighter. "Here everything

vious message had told of the
death of one of her crew swept
overboard by the heavy seas which
for a time threatened to swamp
the vessel.

the Unitedi States liner America
and the Hamburg-American line's

Thousands Turn Out to Welcome
Motor Caravan on Swing
Through State
(By Associated Press)
GARY, Ind., Oct. 5-Motoring
through the densely populated re-
gion of northwestern Indiana at
the head of an automobile caravan
of several hundred cars, Senator
Charles Curtis, Republican vice-
presidential nominee, today waged
the Republican cause with the slo-
gan "Stick to the Full Dinner Pail."
In half a dozen speeches in as
many cities in this industrial cen-
ter during the day, the nominee
spoke of "Republican prosperity"
and called for the election of Her-
bert Hoover, "if you will continue
the prosperity of the administra-
tion of Calvin Coolidge."
Makes Half-Dozen Stops
He came to Gary tonight to wind
up the busy day's program which
had led him to Whiting, Indiana
Harbor, East Chicago, Hammond,
Lowell, Crown Point and Hobart.
Despite his weakened voice, the
Senator spoke at every stop. The
mashed finger on the right hand
still forced him to carry the hand
in a sling but he was busy through-
out the day shaking hands with
the crowd with the left hand.
Republican candidates of Indi-
ana, headed by Harry G. Leslie,
gubernatorial nominee, met Cur-
tis "upon his arrival at the state
line at 9:30 o'clock this morning
and toured with him through the
day. Representative Will Wood of
this district and Walter J. Riley of
East| Chicago, came with him from
Chicago and introduced the Sen-
ator at the many stopping places.
At the head of the long motor
procession which trekked though
the busy thoroughfares of the city
with a truck carrying a brass band,
banners on the side of the truck
bore the words: " Stick to the Full
Dinner Pail-Vote for Hoover and
Curtis." Under the smoke-clouded
sky of the factory section Senator
Curtis talked on a theme from that
slogan, declaring the era of this
administration "one of the most
prosperous in history." He lauded
Herbert Hoover "as one of the best
fitted men ever to run for Presi-
Schools Dismissed
Crowds lined the streets. along
most of the route and a battalion
of motorcycle police with shriek-
ing sirens heralded the approach
of the picturesque caravan and
carved the path for it. At almost
all points, the public and parochial
schools were dismissed to permit
the children to wave-a greeting to
the smiling vice-presidential can-
Despite the unwieldly size of the
long motor procession, the party
kept fairly well to the schedule and
arrived at Lowell in time for lunch-
eon, which was served by the ladies
of the Methodist Episcopal Church
in the basement of the church.
More than 500 cars were estimated
to be in the parade.
Temporary stands were erected
at a central point in each of the

cities and from these Senator Cur-
tis made his appearance. He was
forced to ride in a closed car to
protect his voice, but all of the ad-
dressses during the day were made
in the open. Representative Wood
in his talk also referred to "Re-
publican prosperity," and attribut-
ed the protective tarrif as the
mainstay of prosperity.

Daily Editor Analyzes Smith's
Electoral Strength By States

Al Smith may be the next presi-
dent of the United States-but not
according to the law of averages.
Taking an average of the present
total of electoral votes, 531, and
assigning each state to the party
which has carried it the most times
since the memorable election of
1876 after which Rutherford B.
Hayes became president although
it appeared that Samuel J. Tilden
had really been elected, it seems
that Al Smith should poll a total
of 183 electoral votes this fall and
that his opponent will be elected
to the presidency with a total of
348 electoral votes.
But that is according to the law
of averages, and doesn't necessar-
ily prove that Smith will carry or
lose a single state. In the first
place, there is Smith's own home
state of New York which in the
past 12 elections has nine times
voted for a Republican candidate
and must, according to averages,
be included in that list. And yet
Smith has three times been elected
to the governorship of the Empire
state and must therefore be con-
ceded at least a slight edge in the
voting in that state.
Dean Bursley Ratifies Proposal to
Purge Class Elections In
Literary Collegel
Joseph A. Bursley, dean of stu-
dents, ratified yestercay a compre-
hensive plan submitted by the Stu-
dent council for! eliminating politi-
cal corruption from class elections
in the literary college.
The office of the dean has agreed
to furnish lists of the members of
classes on which councilmen will
check off voters as they enter the
rooms in which elections will be
held. At the same time a ballot
will be handed to each voter, and
none will be distributed from the
floor. In case any names are omit-
ted from the dean's list, those so
omitted will be allowed cast signed
ballots that will be checked later
and thrown out i' found to be un-

at the office of the dean of stu-
dents at least 24 hours before their
elections, and obtain a written
