Landon Starts
Drive For Lake
States In Ohio
Hits At 'Growing Menace,
One-Man Government,'
In Five-StopTrip
COLUMBUS, 0., Oct. 10.-(P)-
Gov. Alf M. Landon led his lake states
Presidential drive into the heart of
Ohio today with a call to combat
what he called "the growing men-
ace of one-way government after the
European fashion."
From Cincinnati northward on a
five-stop trip, the Republican nom-
inee contended that the New Deal
"kind" of government leads to reg-
imentation, and regimentation to "a
straight-jacket on business and labor
and agriculture with all its blighting
Campaigning from his rear plat-
form andrallying party workers to
what he teirmed "The battle of our
century," Landon made two addr ses
in Cincinnati and talked at Hamil-
ton, Middletown, Dayton, Springfield
and London.
"The issues in this campaign are
so deep and so fundamental that they
pass partisan lines," Landon said at
Along the road, from Cincinnati to
Columbus, when not speaking, Lan-
don conferred with state party lead-
Major points stressed by Landon in
his Ohio campaign are:
The election presents a choice-"as
vital as any that has presented it-
self since the Civil War"-between
"the American system of government
and one that is alien to everything
this country ever before has known."
In - this "battle of our century" the
Republican party is the "rallying
point" for "Abraham Lincoln Repub-
licans and Thomas Jefferson Demo-
crats" who are "fighting the threats
of our American systei of govern-
ment and life."
The New Deal "sold" Minnesotat
Democrats "down the river" when
their candidates "deserted" by with-
drawing in favor of the Farmer-
Labor ticket. This was "a last des-I
perate effort to auction their votes
to stave off defeat for the "nationalt
machine" and "not the only state in
which this same sort of sordid bar-k
tering has taken place."
x The New Deal "is trying to poison
the mind of the public with a cam-
paign of vicious misrepresentation"
through "the most powerful propa-
ganda machine ever assembled on
American soil."

By JAMES A. BOOZER discussion of her own race.. She told

cine man,'told him of his hold over
Prof. Dow V. Baxter of the forestry the natives, but it was evident that

loaded with papers and galley proofs.
"That medicine man up in the Koyu-
kuk district of Alaska coulda teach a
lot to anybody.
"He is a grizzled redskin of about
70 years who cures any and all ail-
ments by rattling a length of chain
under the sick person's bed, or by
working up a froth in a mystical
dance," said Professor Baxter, just
returned, loaded down with duffle
bags, cameras, and scientific instru-
ments, from the Yukon Valley where
he spent the summer tracking down
the wood fungi of that region.
Fog had settled over the river so]
thick that it might -have been sliced1
by the camping knives in the duffle7
packs when the steamboat put into
the settlement at 2 a.m. The partyJ
went ashore to have breakfast with
the Italian trader and his Indian
wife. Professor Baxter was surprisedc
to find himself seated at a tastefullyi
appointed table, and to find the In-
dian wife talking to him of suchs
things as the Literary Digest strawc
vote and Robert Marshall's "Arcticc

she didn't take stock in his antics.
It was thus that he became inter-
ested in the medicine man called
"Andy.' And became acquainted
with him. He describes him as a
very intelligent American Indian. He
found out that if a sick man wants
Andy to work over him with greater
expense of energy, he must pay for
the service with another fur or two.
If the man dies, Andy can always
excuse himself with "Oh well, I could
have saved him for several more mink
This spring and before the arrival
of the Michigan party a forest fire
had crept down the spruce woods and
was threatening the Indian cemetery
up the Yukon.
Fearful indeed was the tribe as the
flames advanced down the mountain-
side, and they set out to fight the fire.
The medicine man looked into the
distance, saw moving grey clouds, an-
nounced to the fearful Indian that he
would curb the fire for a mink skin
apiece. The rain was not long in
coming and the torrential downpour
quenched the fire, put the tribe in
