Women are warned to make sure
of their choice before signing the
pledge slip, Miss Neilson said.
The sororities will not be notified
of the women who have accepted
their house until Saturday night,
when lists will be sent to every so-
rority. Rushees may be called for at

A special warning is being given to

With the beginning of the silence

society men will keep watch for vio-

said. "We are certain to get the loy-

Hoover Greeted By Four-Mile Parade In Des Moines

(Associated Press Photo)

Garner Replies
To President's
owa Speech
House Speaker Points To
'Broken Promises' Of
Executive's Campaign
WASHINGTON, Oct. 5.-()-John
N. Garner, speaker of the House and
vice-presidential candidate of the
Democrats, replied today to Presi-
dent Hoover's Iowa speech with a
statement, in which he said "broken
promises cannot be explained any-
Offerig no apologies," declared
Garner,'"I say with all~ the- emphasis
at my command that if we judge the
promises he now makes in the light
of those he has made and failed to
fulfill, either his sincerity or his abil-
ity to make good his latest pledges is
seriously open to question."
The speaker, whose leadership of
the House was singled out for partic-
ular attack in the President's ad-
dress, led a group of Democratic
spokesmen in issuing criticism. In
succession after he gave his written
statement to newspapermen, Rep.
Burns, of Tennessee, Sen. Harrison
of Mississippi and others gave out
through the Democratic national
committee fresh broadsides against
the Hoover speech.
Garner discharged the President
with displaying "the inconsistency
that had characterized his entire ad-
ministration" in the statement that
he was using his good offices to pre-
vail upon mortgage companies to
foreclose upon homes and farms.
"The President," he said, "vetoed
the measure that would have assured
farmers the credit necessary to pre-
vent foreclosure. He asserted at that
time that it would make the govern-
ment a pawnbroker, and insisted that
loans be extended only to a select
clientele. After extending the loans
he states that he is now endeavoring
to induce those who have secured
the millions of government credit to
be lenient with the farmers and home
owners whose mortgage they hold.
Garner said he was not criticising
the loans to the financial organiza-
tions, "but it must be obvious that
extension of credit to a select few
cannot bring to this country the
maximum benefits that should ac-
crue from the release of this great
volume of credit."
Cordial Spirit Indicated
In Anglo-Irish Question
LONDON, Oct. 5.-(P)-A spirit of
cordiality not associated recently
with Anglo-Irish relations prevailed
during a two-hour conference at the
Dominions office today at which
President Eamon de Valera and Do-
minions Secretary J. H. Thomas
agreed to negotiate the controversy
over unpaid Irish land annuities.
The negotiations are scheduled to
start Oct. 14. Mr. de Valera and sev-
eTal of his ministers will come to
London to take part in them.
Although the possible basis for set-
tlement was a question neither side

We had a wonderful trip and
won 10 out of the 14 games

declared the way Japanese out-
filelders played "is little less than
big league style."
"We found the Japanese a bit
weak on hitting, but wonderfully
fast on b ses. an~ in the field1

Mid-West Farmers
Prepare Riockade;
Strike 'Continues
DES MOINES, Ia., Oct. 5.-()-
New impetus was given a middle
western farmers' strike for better
prices today, after the cost of pro-
duction movement had been quies-
cent several weeks.
In southeastern South Dakota ad-
herents of the National Farmers
Holiday Association were preparing
to invoke a strong blockade, they
said, of roads into Sioux Falls, in at-
tempt to keep grain and livestock
from markets.
Near Estherville, Ia., a peaceful
strike was in progress, but H. N. Jen-
sen, secretary of the Emmett County
Holiday Association, said that while
"there may be picketing in this coun-
ty, the kind of picketing we advo-
cate will be friendly."
Meanwhile, Milo Reno of Des
Moines, president of the national as-
sociation, said he was going to Can-
by, Minn., to investigate the fatal
shooting of Nordahl Peterson, 25, a
farmer and strike picket.

False Attacks

President Says Midwest
Has Spread 'Intolerable'
Lies Concerning Himself
Throngs Hear HiM
Speak From Train
Executive Pleased With
Reception During Trip
In Farm Belt States
CIAL, Oct. 5.--AP)-In self-termed
hard words, President Hoover today
denounced as "deliberate, intolerable
falsehoods" what he said were wide-
spread personal misrepresentations
promulgated in the Midwest in the
past few weeks.
Surrounded by a crowd that push-
ed and shoved toward him as he
spoke over the radio from the rear
platform of his special train at Fort
Wayne, Ind., the President said he
believed sportsmanship and states-
manship called for the elimination
of harsh personalities between op-
The speech was the Chief Execu-
tive's first since he left Des Moines
last night, where he said a national
victory had been achieved over eco-
nomic difficulties and declared that
enactment of the Democratic pro-
gram would "end hope of recovery."
Hoover Flays
Without naming the "opponents"
to whom he referred today, the Pres-
ident told his Ft. Wayne audience:
"On this journey, however, I have
received a multitude of reports as to
the wi'despread personal misrepre-
sentations which have been promul-
gated in the Midwest in the past
few weeks. I regret that the char-
acter of these personalities necessi-
tates a direct word from me.
"I shall say now the only harsh
word that I have uttered in public
lme~T hope it~ wil e the last I
shall have to say.
"When you are told tha~t the Pres-
ident of the Unitedd States, who
by the most sacred trust of our Na-
tion is the President of all the peo-
ple, a man of your own blood and
upbringing, has sat in the White
House for the last three years of your
misfortune without troubling to know
your burdens, without heartaches
over your miscries and casualties;
without summoning every avenue of
skilful assistance irrespective of par-
ty or view, without using every ounce
of his strength and straining his
every nerve to protect and help,
without using every possible agency
of democracy that would bring aid,
without putting aside personal am-
bition and humbling his pride of
opinion if that would serve-then I
say to you that such statements are
deliberate, intolerable falsehoods."
