among others including Professor Muyskens, Frank
Picard and about half the male population of
Michigan, James Couzens, who, although not
loved very much by the bosses of the G.O.P.,
has always been a Republican as far as election
purposes go.
For governor, they endorsed, among others,
George Welsh, who, although now recently turned
New Dealer, has served as lieutenant-governor
and speaker of the State House of Representatives
as a Republican, and has long been prominent in
the G.O.P. ranks.
And while this was going on, Governor Com-
stock, titular head of the party who is allegedly
taking a walk, was fishing in the north woods,
unmindful that he was endorsed, with all the
other gentlemen, for senator. Mr. Picard. one
of the old Comstock-Abbott men, was present,
but he was so busy insisting that his Saginaw
delegates be seated that he paid little attention
to what was going on.
The Democrats think they have a good chance
of defeating Governor Fitzgerald this fall. Good
advice to them, if they really want- to do that,
is to sort of get together.
The Democratic party in Michigan is in the
same fix, it seems to us, that the Republican party
is nationally. Nobody knows who is who or what
is what. We have nothing against the Democrats.
Most of them are kind and estimable men and
women. We would like to see someone help them.
They need it.

THE FORUM

Imaginary
Conversations . .
W ELDON MELICK, writing on "The
National Heckle Hour" in the cur-
rent issue of Reader's Djigest, besides presenting a
very interesting article on the National Broad-
casting Company's Town Hall program on Thurs-
day nights, m'akes the suggestion that both pres-
idential candidates debate on the Town Hall plat-
fbrm before a nation-wide invisible audience.
"Certainly the event would not be without prece-
dent in a land where once we hadour Lincoln-
Douglas debates, our exciting political set-tos in
which candidates faced each other frankly before
the people and argued their differences 'in give-
and-take fashion," he says. "In this day of dodg-
ing behind set speeches, often ghost-written, it
would be a welcome relief if aspirants for high
office debated personally before the microphone
and had an astute audience to pick them up when
they sought to sidestep an issue."
What an illuminating experience it would be
to listen to President Roosevelt, his Republican
opponent and perhaps a third party candidate on
the same platform, abandoning of necessity the
evasive generalities of political language!
The opponents of President Roosevelt might
ask:
"Mr. Roosevelt, despite your fast expenditures,
the unemployment figures are just as high as they
ever were. What do you propose to do about it?
How can you justify that expenditure? How long
are you going to continue to sink us further into
debt?
"What are you going to do for the farmer, Mr.
Roosevelt? The measures which you have proposed
have been unconstitutional. Are you going to
undertake anything to help agriculture within
the bounds of the Constitution?
"How about business, Mr. Roosevelt? You have
business men, large and small, paralyzed with fear.
Can they trust your "breathing spells?"
"How about labor, Mr. Roosevelt? This prob-
ably comes from Norman Thomas.) The labor
provisions of the NRA and the Guffey Bill are in-
effective because unconstitutional. Your cab-
into has been guilty of unfair treatment of labor.
"Are you going to continue to help monopolies?
"Are you going to continue your disastrous silver
.policy?
"Are you going to continue to buck the Con-
stiatution without doing anything constructive
about it? Do you favor an amendment to the Con-
stitution?"
President Roosevelt might ask his Republican
opponent:
"Your party represents the forces of reactionary'
do-nothingness. What did Hoover do in 1932?
What specific measures do you advocate for the
improvement of business, labor, agriculture?
"Would you favor returning to the gold stand-
ard?

Night Nuding
To the Editor:
'With reference to your item on "Nudists May
Gambol On Streets After Dark." in The Daily for
May 20, may I suggest the following:
When Phoebus gets his cart to go and ropes
his trusty beast,
When the rosy-fingered So-and-So is smear-
ing up the east,
I love to shuck my shirt and pants - from
clothes my skin relieve,
And give my smothered pores a chance to
wake and stretch and breathe.
I love to see my shining pelt and feel my
muscles free,
To show my shape, more strong than svelt,
for connoisseurs to see,
I love to run in sunny ways or sit beneath
a tree
To snare the ultra violet rays and the vitamin
called D.I
But now alas! it can't be done, reformers
interfere,
Vitamin D - gift of the sun -I now must get
from beer.
The law now reads that if we nude, it must
be done at night
To nude when nuding's good is rude - dark
nudes alone are right.
So as a reformerebecks and nods our fancy
can't be free;
We now must clothe the classic gods and
strip mythology.
If cupid strolls on sunny sands with dart a
heart to hurt
He mustrbe wrapped in belly bands and
swathed in hunting shirt.
Just see Diana as she flies among the mystic
trees,
How the jodhpurs bundle up her thighs and hide
her dimpled knees.
Tho' by this law we must abide I say it is not
right.
That if Godiva takes a horseback ride she
has to ride at night.

The Conning Tower]
THE LANDON SPEECH
This country's quitters
Have got the jitters.
Who've sense of horses
Trust the land's rsources.
Governor Landon quoted a "prophet of despair"
---he didn't say who - as having said "There are
millions of Americans now alive who will never
again be self-supporting." The person who said
it may be a prophet of despair, and he may be a
fact-facer. We believe him, and we believe that
there are many millions who once were able to
support one more than themselves who never again
will be more than self-supporting.
Whether the other men who are possible of
nomination at Cleveland have been a target for the
minnesingers we don't know. But Richard B.
Stauffer and Twila Draper have written the words
to "He's the Man of the Hour," and the chorus is:
Rather small, rather gray, that's Alf. Landon,-
He's the man of the hour,
America's loyal son.
Ev'ry state has heard his voice,
How they shout and rejoice,
We need Alf. Landon from the Sunflower state,
The G.O.P. will elect him to the Presidency.
For he's done things in Kansas in a wonderful
way.
He's riding the popular wave right to the Presi-
dency
Rather small, rather gray, that's Alf. Landon. j
EPITAPHS OF LONGEVITYj
Here lies the body of Frederick Fine
Who died at the age of 109.
He often went to bed o'nights,
And never crossed against the lights.
Mr. Arthur Brisbane observes that 25,000 per-
sons watched the frog-jumping contest and that
not half that number would have gathered to hear
Einstein lecture on relativity. "This may mean,"
guesses Mr. Brisbane, "that many human beings
are nearer to the frog than they are to Einstein."
'Wait for the Louis-Schmeling fight. Mr. B. Then
you can say that many thousands of persons will
pay many hundreds of thousands of dollars more
to see two men hit each other than would pay
to hear Einstein. But a lot of them may be just
as near to Einstein as they will be to the ringside.
PETROLEUM V. NASBY, OF THE FINDLAY (O.)
JEFFERSONIAN
We can imagine how puzzled, how resentful, how
suspicious Hancock County was of him seventy-
five years ago. The little gods they cherished so
jealously he laughed at. Their little hard tight
prejudices pattered but lightly on his broad shoul-
ders, for he drank his beer and spirits openly,
gayly, freely. He was big and beefy, wore his
clothes carelessly, and my uncle said he might have
been taken for anything but a literary genius. In
conversation his big voice boomed out, and he was
not one to hide his light under a bushel. He did
not mind a bit the disapproval and cold shoulders
he received. It amused him, so tolerant, so easy
going was he in his magnificent poise. When he
was neither hurt nor humbled they were vexed.
How dared he flout them! Then they discovered
they were his relaxation, his lazy entertainment.-
This was after the newspaper he had published
began attracting attention throughout the coun-
try.
Dave Locke had bought the Jefersonian on his
arrival in Hancock County, in 1861. It had prac-
tically ceased to exist for lack of patronage, but
took a new lease on life when his magic pen started
writing the Petroleum V. Nasby letters. He had a
deep feeling against slavery, and had been in
trouble in the South because of his vehemence in
expressing his opinion. The Jeffersonian served
his purpose, for in his Nasby letters he assumed
the character of a whisky-drinking, illiterate Dem-
ocratic politician, who wanted to be postmaster and
desired the perpetuation of slaveiy. The fictional
address given was the Confederate Cross Roads.
Hancock County considered them beneath its
notice, written as they were in painstakingy illit-

crate English. Silly, was what they said. But
some people thought Dave Locke had a pretty wit.
In less than five years lie sold the Jeflersonian.
'Then, borrowing some money from his brother-in-
4w, a very substantial citizen, he went to Toledo,

A Washington
BYSTANDER
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, May 2. - Herbert
' Hoover's "not a candidate" an-
nouncement may not have surprised
many observers; but by all accounts it
set the political pot a-boiling afresh
for the whole table of potential Re-
publican dark horses in the Senate.
The sti' it caused in the Vandenberg.
Dickinson and Steiwer camps - and
also in Senator Borah's vicinity -
was a matter of amused comment
among some Senate colleagues.
Nevertheless, this Hoover pro-
nouncement no more. removes him
finally from the nomination picture
than the Coolidge "I-do-not-choose-
to-run" statement in '27 took the then
President wholly out of Mr. Hoover's
road to a nomination. The "draft
Coolidge" cry, loudly sounded by
former Senator Fess of Ohio, con-
tinued almost to convention time. Mr.
Coolidge finally stilled the Ohioan.
Mr. Hoover would have'to couple
some declaration about not accept-
ing a nomination if tendered to his
"not a candidate" outgiving to take
his shadow completely off the Cleve-
land show. If he did so, his influence
there upon either the ticket or the
platform would be small indeed.
FARLEY SHIFTS TO LANDON
N EVER-THE-LESS, the new Hoo-
ver declaration, coming as it does
when the Landon boom is going so
strong, is an important political fac-
tor. To Senator Borah, perhaps, his
additional statement that he is not
working "against" anybody was more
impressive than the not-a-candidate
part.
And as a pure coincidence, one of
Mr. Hoover's most ardent supporters
for the Republican nomination
dropped him just about the time the
Chicago Hoover statement was is-
sued. "Sunny Jim" Farley, carrying
his message of Roosevelt cheer to the
Democratic faithful in convention in
Connecticut, for once did not refer
to his favorite for the Republican job.
Even Farley has been caught up
in the Landon boom it seems. He
said, at least, that Republican "po-
litical weather indications" pointed
toward the nomination of "a doubt-
less estimable gentleman, who how-
ever, was unheard of in a national
sense until the minority party began
to beat the bushes for a candidate."
There is Farley's idea of a Demo-
cratic campaign theme song if Lan-
don is nominated.
COAL ACT'S OVERTHROW
r1'HE idea of reviving the Guffey
coal act minus its labor provisions
seems to be based among some of its
congressional sponsors on the theory
that Supreme Court overthrow of the
act was not without its sunny side.
Predictions that it would play an im-
portant part in the election results in
coal states like Pennsylvania and Il-
linois were about the first Democratic
reaction to the court's verdict. Any-
how, it would take another year,
probably, for the price fixing section
to reach the court again.

In partial reply to the remarks of "212" about
ithe article dealing with M.i'. Gust Carlson's
"expose" of the numbers racket, I should like
to point out that the "sensational" nature of
the article is entirely a product of Mr. F. W.
Neal's treatment of the subject. Mr. Carlson
has been studying the various aspects of the num-
bers racket for several years as a part of the
thesis dealing with the anthropo-sociological sig-
nificance of this curious social phenomenon. He
has secured many interesting facts, given him in
confidence. However, anyone acquainted with
Mr. Carlson and his treatment of his problem
realizes that he is not crusading, exposing, nor
seekipg publicity. It is unfortunate that an ap-
parently harmless interview should have resultedE
in publicity of the "sensational" type. His friends

"Aunt Mat" in the great mansion in Toledo, we
were awed by the dignity of his widow. She was
very kind, very gracious, but very tall and slender
and fashionable for an old lady of eighty. And
the enormous oil paintings in the great rooms,
each with its separate shaded illumination, seemed
to us the ultimate in grandeur. And her son,
Mr. Rob Locke, the devastating dramatic critic
of his own paper, was so suave, so charming, so
mechanically polite and polished that he might
have been royalty itself. We were impressed. This,
then, was the sort we would marry if he would
just wait until we grew up. He did not. He was
middle aged then. Though she never knew it, it
was a great grief to us when he married the sister
