SMITH TENDS SKYSCRAPER;
IS MUM ABOUT PRESIDE)

'

Formfer Governor Busy With Grand children,
Building; Ignores Political Hints.
NEW YORK, Oct. 30.-(/P)-During these dog days of politics, Alfred
E. Smith busies himself with being boss of a hundred and some odd
stories of skyscraper and grandpa to six children. About this talk of
his being a candidate for the democratic presidential nomination in 1932,
the standard bearer of 1928 is non-committal. And he says that no one

One of aviation's most prominent women narrowly escaped injury
when the plane in which Ruth Nichols (left) was believed to have seti
a new non-stop distance flight record for women caught fire in Louis-
ville, Ky., as she was warming up to take off for New York. Miss Nichols
flew approximately 2,000 miles from Oakland, Calif., to Louisville. She
is shown above at the start of the flight.

endangered.

has authority' to speak for him.
Most politicians say he won't run.
He has eschewed for the time the
thrust and parry of political duel
for the comforts of home life and
the worries of a "super landlord."
When visitors come to see the mam-
moth Empire State building and the
view therefrom, Smith usually is on
hand to guide them. ,
Knows His New York.
Attired in a pin stripe suit and
brown derby made familiar by one
presidential campaign and eight
years of governorship, he takes his
friends ontothe
windswept observa-
t i o n platform of I
the tower and then
shows them the
New York he knows .
so well.
A slightly harsh ,
and powerful tone h
of a voice trained ;
by a quarter of a
century of public.
appearances carry
easily in the thin
air and rush of
wind as he tells the -
details of the pan-
orama of Manhat- "Al" Smith
tan spread below. Under his tongue
usually he rolls his cigar.
When the visits of his six grand-
children are not frequent enough'
to suit him, the former governor of
New York betakes himself to their
homes in the metropolis or up to
Albany.
Plays With Grandchildren.
He rollicks with them, teaches
the small boys how to "speak
pieces" and, when he is in Albany,
takes them out to see the cows on
the farm of a friend.
His calls are not alone on the
host of friends he has accumulated
in his years of prominence.
On his excursions to Albany, he
steals away to a farm to see some
of the dogs and other pets he once
kept at the executive mansion.
They know him when he "growls"
a greeting.

Smith moved out of his Oliver
street home and the shadow of the
Brooklyn bridge when he was re-
elected for the second time gover-
nor of New York,
He changed the small hou3e
standing in a row of closely press-
ing and identically designed homes
for a suite in a New York hotel, to
be used when he did not stay at the
mansion in Albany.
Later he took a penthouse apart-
ment in lower Fifth avenue, near
Washington Square.
Fond of Pets.
Smith likes a home and all the
things that go with it. He had plen-
ty of dogs at the executive mansion
-little ones that yipped at the but-
ler's heels and big ones that roared
at passing traffic.
He had a zoo in which lived a
bear, a living and long-eared don-
key, symbol of his political party, a
raccoon or two, and other pets an
admirIng public" shipped to the
mansion.
Thoug approaching his fifty-
eighth birthday, he carries himself
erectly. He is above medium height,
and his thinning hair is showing
white about the temples. He dresses
carefully but not extra.vagantly.
Renowned as- a raconteur, his gift
of mimicry adds effectiveness to his
vast supply of anecdotes. He is
famed for his repartee.
