OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 10.-(P)-Ad-
vancing a four-point program of his
own for future assistance to agri-
culture, President Roosevelt told the
nation tonight that the "Republican
leadership" had props sed a farm
plan to cost possibly $2,000,000,000
annually, "not to save agriculture but
to wreck it."
Speaking to an audience packed
into the Ak-Sar-Ben coliseum, the
President led off with an open en-
dorsement of Veteran George W.
Norris, Republican, who is an inde-
pendent candidates for the Senate
this. year.
"Help this great American to con-
tinue an historic career of service,"
Mr. Roosevelt asked.
Lists Four Policies
The long-time policy of the Admin-
istration, he said, includes:
1. Conservation against land.
wastage and soil impoverishment.
2. Seeking to increase purchasing
power so that people can pay for
more and better food, thereby pro-
viding a "larger and larger domestic
market for the farmer."
3. Attacking the "evil of farm
4. Giving' the farmer "a sound
plan of crop insurance in kind against

In advocatng the Senator's re-)
election, the President told the col- I
iseum audience he was making, and
so long as Norris lived, would con-1
tinue to make, "one magnificently
justified exception" to his rule of non-
participation in elections of states
other than his own New York. I
Farm Aids
"George Norris' candidacy," he1
said, "transcends state . and party
lines. In our national history we
have had few elder statesmen who
like him have preserved the aspira-
tions of youth as they accumulate the'
wisdom of years."
Turning to the farm problems, the
President said that for the first time'
in "many cruel years we are getting
the problem of the business of farm-
ing well in hand."
He said his own seven-sentence
record of aid to farmers could be ex-
panded by every man and woman on
a farm "in terms of the recovery
that has come to each of them in the
last three and a half years."7
Looking At Record
This was the record outlined:
1. Raised farmers' net annual in-
come by $3,500,000,000.
2. Saved thousands of homes and'
farms from foreclosure and reduced
farmers' debts.
3. Started recovering the farmers''
foreign markets.
4. Restored national income anda
prepared for a steady, longtime ex-'
pansion of the farmers' home market.
5. Ended a policy of immediate
glut and eventual waste and laid the

basis for permanent plenty.
6. Begun to get the farmer a fair
share in comforts, advantages, wider
interests and deeper satisfaction
"which go to make the good life for
himself and for his children."
7. Rushed immediate and directj
relief to farmers and stockmen struck'
by drought.

brilliant display of marching proved
the fast-growing conviction that it is
the best marching band in the coun-
Having the field all to themselves
during the halves, the band could
show off its wares. Thus the band
performed the difficult feat of a

and an announcer, the dialogue cor-
responded to "Knock, knock. Who's

D. Revelli. Starting out with form-
ing a huge "1911," the date of the
composition of the piece,, the band
began "Varsity" intermingled with
the tune of "Long, Long Ago." Next
the band spelled out "1921," still
playing the new arrangement of the
Varsity with the tune "Memories."
For 1931 the composition switched to
"Silver Threads Among the Gold"
with the background of "Varsity."
And to climax the performance "Auld

Only One Cult
Case Remains;
Four Sentenced
DETROIT. Oct. 10.-(P-Twelve
men were under sentence today, six
months after the Black Legion 'exe-
cution" of Charles A. Poole, to serve
prison terms on charges of murder.
Remaining to be tried in the Poole
case is John S. Mitchell, whose trial
has been delayed by illness.
The last four of 11 men convicted
of murdering Poole, whose death
uncovered the secret band of night
riders in Michigan, were sentenced
today by Circuit Judge Joseph A.
Moynihan to minimum priso nterms
ranging from 31/2 to 10 years.
Judge Moynihan, who denounced
the Black Legion's opposition to cer-
tain religious and racial groups, and
called Poole "a martyr to the cause of
civil and religious liberties," ordered
life prison terms for all but the four
convicted of second degree murder.
The prison terms given these four
were: Thomas R..Craig, on parole on
an election fraud charge; 10 to 20
years; Virgil Morrow, 5 to 15 years;
Albert Stevens, 72 to 15 years and
John S. Vincent, 66; oldest defendant,
3'/ to ten years.
State witnesses testified Poole was
killed after false gossip that he beat
his wife, but every defendant at the
trial asserted he thought the "night
ride"on which Poole was taken last
May 12 was to be "just a demonstra-

Franco Visits
Fronts Before
Madrid Attack
Zero Hour Will Be Before
Middle Of Week; May Be
At Dawn Today
BURGOS, Spain, Oct. 10.- (/P) --
Gen. Francisco Franco, supreme mil-
itary leader of the Insurgents, toured
his front lines tonight to decide
when he would set the zero hour for
the final Madrid attack.
Some informed sources said the
Generalissimo might give the attack
order at dawn Sunday, but others
believed Franco would wait for fur-
ther consolidation of his troops,
wound around three sides of Madrid.
All were agreed, however, that the
Madrid attack would be launched be-
fore the middle of next week.
High officers said the spearhead
of the attack would be along the
highway from San Martin Valdeigles-
ias, West of Madrid, which joins the
main Talaver-Madrid highway near
Alcorcon, about 10 miles from the
The only natural defense along this
route is the forest near the Alberche
River, eight miles from San Martin.
Franco, the military leaders said,
personally will direct the attack,
which would be supported by other
columns under Gen. Emilio Mola, in
command of the northern Fascist
Earlier the Fascists announced
their warplanes had blasted apart
the only remaining railroad line from
Madrid to the Southeast.
The planes accomplished their mis-
sion during a bombardment of Aran-
juez, strategic city 29 miles southeast
of Madrid.
Dow Promises
Lower Light,
Power Rates
Alex Dow, president of the Detroit
Edison Corpany who last week ar-
gued before the State Public Utilities.
Commission against- lowering elec-
tricity prices gave promise here yes-
terday of a general overhauling and
.reduction of rates. He addressed the
University of Michigan Industrial
Conference on Education and Re-
search Friday night in the Union.
Declaring that all he wanted was
to be left alone and not forced into
a reduction, Mr. Dow revealed that
his company has for some time been
working on a plan for lower rates.
"And we hope to put them into
effect very soon, too," he emphasized.
Before the commission in Lansing,
he cited as reasons why the Detroit
Edison Company should not be com-
pelled to reduce its schedule: High
taxes with no promise of cessation;
high cost of fuel, with~ the promise
of going higher; the necessity of pay-
ing more out in wages because of in-
creased costs of living. A Landon
supporter, he lashed at the New
Deal's "extravagance" in his remarks
before the commission.
He refused, however, in Ann. Ar-

President Declared
Communist Again
BALTIMORE, Oct. 10.--(P)-The
Rev. Charles E. Coughlin tonight re-
iterated his assertion that President
Roosevelt has "Communistic tenden-
cies" and offered "as proof" the char-
ter of a corporation which, he said,
was formed in Delaware under New
Deal auspices.
Replying to an address by the Right
Rev. John A. Ryan of the Catholic
University, taking exception to
Coughlin's criticisms of the New Deal.
The Priest said that this corpora-
tion's charter contained authority, to,
"manage and maintain projects and
structures of every kind, nature and
In addition, he said, the charter
empowered the corporation to "ac-
quire, by purchose, exchange or other-
wise, all or any part of, or any in-
terest in the properties, assets, bus-
iness, and good will of any one or
more firms organized under the laws
of Delaware."
". . . Though the New Deal ad-
ministration has withdrawn this hid-
den charter from the files of Dela-
ware," he said, "the deed was done.
Acquisition of private property by
any means whatsoever wasrmani-
fested as part of its program."
In the course of his speech, de-
livered by radio preliminary to an
address before a Maryland rally of
the National Uion for Social Jus-
tice, )Father Coughlin referred to
Monsignor Ryan as "the ecclesias-
tical spokesman for the Democratic
National Committee" and as "the
Right Reverend New Dealer."

Prospects for a successful season
sank to a low that has not been

in the last decade when Coach Harry
Kipke's young Michigan team met its
second disappointing defeat in tvdo
The Hoosiers, led by their triple-
threat quarterback, Vernon Huffman,
goat of last year's game between the
two teams, completely outplayed the
Wolverines except for a few minutes
early in the first quarter when Mich-
igan took advantage of a short punt
and gave Chris Everhardus the op-
portunity to place-kick a field goal
from the 25-yard line.
Cooper Shines
Only in yardage or punts did the
Wolverines lead Indiana in the sta-
tistics columns, prominent in which
were 15 incomplete Michigan passes
out of 17 attempted and four oppon-
ent's fumbles recovered by Indiana.
Coach Kipke's men seemed to have
the game well in hand when they
scored after six minutes of the first
quarter had elapsed. Bob Cooper,
who again was the sparkling light in
the Michigan backfield, started things
with a 58 yard punt that bounded
crazily and was swept out of bounds
on the Indiana two-yard marker by
a strong cross-field wind.
Quarterback Huffman's punt from
deep in the end zone sliced out of
bounds on his own 17. After three
plays had totalled a gain of one yard,
Everhardus was sent in to try for
a goal from field. He responded with
a perfect kick from placement from
the 25, with Johnny Smithers hold-
ing the ball.
Stanton Fumbles
The first Indiana score, the most
surprising play of the game, came
during the initial play of the second
quarter, after Cooper had ended the
first period with a 15-yard runback of
a punt to his own 36.
Tex Stanton, sophomore fullback
replacement, started into the line
with the ball, and the next instant
big Chris Dal Sasso, captain of the
Hoosiers, was running 35 yards for a
touchdown through an open field.
Sideline observers last night were un-
able to agree on whether Dal Sasso
had recovered the ball at the instant
of fumble or whether 'he had
wrenched it off of Stanton's arm as
the Wolverine back struck a wall in
the form of the Indiana line. George
Miller, Hoosier center, cnverted
from placement to make the score 7
to 3.
Nine. minutes of the second quar-
ter had elapsed when Indiana scored
again, this time.on a march from the
Michigan 30 topped off by a perfect
forward pass into the end 'zone.
Miller Again Scores
Huffman's punt from Michigan's 40
was downed by Dick Kenderdine on
the Wolverines' three yard line.
Cooper punted to his own 40, but
Huffman brought the ball back 10
yards and the Hoosiers were away.
Huffman completed a toss to Ken-
derdine, who was standing alone in
the corner of the end zone. Miller
again converted and the score stood
at 14 to 3.

Fowler, Indiana fullback, prevented
a second Michigan touchdown in the
final period when he nailed Ritchie
with a diving tackle along the side-
lines after the Michigan halfback had
raced to the Hoosier 33 with only
Fowler between him and the goal line.
Ritchie, sophomore hope of last
year, came through with some fine
running in yesterday's game to defi-
nitely become a capable replacement
