Democrats Add To Farm
Relief Program With
Ref orestration Plan
WASHINGTON, Oct. 24.-(A)-A
government encouraged campaign
against contagious diseases "as a
constructive measure of public eco-
nomy" was urged tonight by Presi-
dent Hoover in an address before the
opening meeting of the American
Public Health Association.
Saying that he was opposed gener-
ally to federal subsidies to the states,
the President added he regarded con-
tagion an interstate question and had
recommended federal contributions
to such- a cause. He indicated he
would make similar recommendations
in the future.
Dr. Louis I. Dublin, retiring presi-
dent of the association, followed the
President with an address saying that
despite economic doldrums the na-
tion's sickness and death rates are
close to the lowest point in history.
The President, in speaking of the
need of a campaign against conta-
gion, said:
"I am in favor, as a constructive
measure of public economy, of a pro-
gram to be carried out on such wise,
lines, to reduce contagious diseasesa
with government encouragement. If
communicable disease could be reduc-
ed by even one-third, such a reduc-
tion would repay the country more
than a thousand fold its cost, by its
saving of the present losses in pro-
ductive time of workers and its sav-
ing of the present losses to school1
funds by absence from classes."
Roosevelt Opposes A iy
Loan To Foreign Nations
ATLANTA, Ga., Oct. 24.-(A')- 1
Franklin D. Roosevelt tonight said |
the object of the Democratic party
must be "the rebuilding of the ruralt
civilization of America."
Speaking to a crowd of southerners
hat jammed the big Atlanta audi-
orium to the rafters, the Democratic
presidential candidate added:
"I am, moreover, enough of an
American to believe that such a res-
oration of prosperity in this country
will do more to effectuate world re-
overy than all of the promotional
chemes of lending money to back-
ward and crippled countries could do
n generations.
"In this respect, I am for America
irst."
Mr. Roosevelt reviewed three of the
oints in the agricultural problem he
laid down in his Topeka and later
peeches and added to them the item
)f reforestation.
"In most of the states east of the
Mississippi it will undoubtedly be de-'
ermined that somewhere between 10
nd 20 per cent of existing farm
creage now used for agriculturalJ
,rops should be abandoned as such
nd converted into use for tree
,rops."
"The use of the labor of man en-
ers into the picture when.it becomes
necessary to eliminate the less val-
iable types of trees among the young
rowth, to cull out the crooked trees,
nd the decayed trees."

The Daily, in co-operation with the
Union, will hold an all-campus straw
vote on the presidential election on
Tuesday and Wednesday of next
week, it was announced last night.
Results of the poll will be printed in
The Daily on Thursday, Nov. 3, and
will be used in theal-University poll
which is being conducted in the lead-
ing Universities of the nation.
In order to make the results of the
poll as accurate as possible, identifi-
cation cards must be presented by all
students desiring to cast a ballot and
members of the faculty must be list-
ed in the student directory.
Co-operation Urged
The Daily and the Union combine
in urging everyone connected with
the University to co-operate in order
to make the results truly authentic,
It is believed that, if a large number
of persons vote, the results will be
valuable in showing the political
trend of the section.
The names of-the four outstanding
party nominees, Herbert Hoover,
Franklin D. Roosevelt, N o r m a n
Thomas, and William Z. Foster, will
be placed on the ballot. It will be
necessary for any incorrectly marked
ballots to be confiscated.
Booths for the voting will be plac-
ed at several points on the campus
and will be kept open all day for the
two days of the poll.
Thomas Rated High
Although Michigan, in recent straw
votes, seems to be leaning toward
Roosevelt, authorities on the question
believe that other polls, having been
started before the Hoover campaign
went into full swing, were not truly
representative.
Norman Thomas, Socialist party
candidate is expected to receive an
unusually large number of votes with
William Z. Foster, Communist, run-
ning a very poor fourth.

Store Refused
University Site
The fight carried on by Michigan
Socialist club to have a newsstand at
which radical literature will be sold
received another serious setback yes-
terday with the alleged refusal by an
administrative authority to allow a
stand to be erected on University
property.
According to a member of the com-
mittee in charge of the sale of the
literature, Shirley Smith, University
Secretary, stated that it was not the
custom to permit student stands to
operate on the campus.
He said,-however, that it would be
possible to petition the Board of Re-
gents on the matter, if the Socialist
club desired to go over his head, the
Socialist stated.
In the meantime, the club is con-
tinuing its battle against the local
police force, which closed its stand
last week after it had been in opera-
tion for only 10 minutes,
Further developments are expect-
ed very soon by the committee. The
American Civil Liberties Union is still
investigating the matter, and a final
report is expected tomorrow, Zeldon
S. Cohen, '33, a member of the com-
mittee, told The Daily last night.
"We are anxious to get the stand
started again since it is one of the
major projects of the club this year,"
Cohen said. "We have invested con-
siderable money and energy indthe
stand and hope that an immediate
solution may be reached upon peace-
able grounds. However we are deter-
mined to see the stand operated,"
Cohen said.

Lowell Thomas 'Afflicted' Wit h
Leion Of Honor, Mild Phobia

"Nothing but death or serious ac-
cident" can prevent Lowell Thomas
from lecturing here on Oct. 29. This
is the dictum of the NBC artists'
Service, Mr. Thomas' management,
as expressed in a recent letter to the
Oratorical Association.
Mr. Thomas will come here Satur-
day laboring under the twofold bur-
den of a high honor and an alleged
phobia. The honor is the Legion of
Honor medal which was presented
him Oct. 22 in New York City, at an
international banquet which prevent-
ed his being here to lecture on that
evening. The phobia is said to be a
mild form of claustrophobia, which
is a dread of small places and a ter-

ion of Lawrence, the "mystery man
ters and kings. He was the compan-
of Arabia," and confidant of "Red"
Rosa Luxemburg and Carl Liebnecht,
the German nihilist.
He was the only American observer
who witnessed the reclaiming of the
Holy Land, the assembling of the 60,-
000 camels, the gathering of troops,
and the final campaign in the desert,
and he was the only recorder of these
events through the motion picture
camera lens.
Mr. Thomas, however, has not been
rendered blase by this kaleidoscopic
career. He will attend the football
game with Princeton, his alma mater,
Saturday afternoon. Relative to this

LONDON, Oct. 24. - (A) - The
United States and Great Britain were
believed in official circles to be closer
to complete agreement on disarma-
ment than at any time in recent
years today as a result of conversa-
tions between Prime Minister J.
Ramsey MacDonald and Norman Da-
vis, American disarmament repre-
sentative.
Although there was no official an
nouncement at No. 10 Downing St.,
it is believed that Great Britain fi-
nally has agreed to end its passive
resistance to President Hoover's plan
for a general reduction of one-third
in world armaments.
It was considered likely that the
British might even take steps to ad-
vance the plan at Geneva as a basis
for reducing arms.
Meanwhile Sir John Simon, for-
eign secretary, who talked for two
hours today with Mr. Davis and the
