PRICE FIVE CENTS
An attack on the Democratic
party for finding fault with the
Republican administration with-
out offering any program for eco-
nomic betterment and a charge to
voters of the state of Michigan
to re-elect Herbert Hoover to the
presidency because of his own
record and the record of the Re-
publican party, were made last
night by Ernest Lee Jahncke,
Assistant Secretary of the Navy,
speaking at the fourth of the
series of public addresses spon
sored by the Union, which was
held in the main assembly room.
"During the worst economic crisis
in history," Jahncke stated, "the
Democratic party has proved itsel
to be nothing but a crying void.
Their leaders have publicly admit-
ted that they must promulgate a
constructive program of sufficient
merit to earn the support of the
nation. So far, however, this pro-
gram has not been forthcoming."
Torn With Dissention.
He stated that 'the Democratic
party was so torn with dissention
on many important issues that
there would be no stand taken on
these during the coming campaign
Anti-protectionists will be sent
to attack the tariff where this is
expedient and the stringency of our
immigration laws will be denoune-
: ed where foreign populations are
extremely large, Jahncke said.
"Other subjects on which -there
is no party unanimity will be dis-
cussed, where it is convenient, by
those holding views similar to the
citizens of the localities," he said.
On the other hand, Jahncke be-
lieves that the Republican party
offers to the electorate:
"Its record in the past 70 years.
54 of which have been years of Re-
publican administration, during
which the United States emerged
from a minor position in the affairs
of the world to become the greatest
power on earth.
"Its candidate, a man who, with
magnificent ability, splendid cour-
age, and unfailing energy is guid-
ing our nation through one of the
most troubled periods the world has
ever known, Herbert Hoover."
He stated that his friends of the
opposition would join hands and
sing in chorus about one totem pole,
the depression. This is the one
ground where all Democrats tread
"Their campaign will be waged
almost exclusively on the theory
that because we have suffered eco-
nomic reverses, the people will turn
against the party in power," he
"I am confident," Jahncke said
in closing, "that when the citizens
of this country make their choice
between the record of the Repub-
licans and that of our opponents,
the result will be the overwhelming
re-election of Herbert Hoover as
president of the United States."

Fourteen men are listed in a

Pomorski attributed the action
