Monopoly Hit
By Roosevelt;
President To Make Initial
Visit To State Since 1932
Campaign Tour
Grand Rapids Stop
Is First Scheduled
Detroit Talk, Is To Be
In Front Of City Hall
At 8:30 P.M.
The prime purpose of the New Deal
has been to break "the deadly grip"
of monopoly on American business,
President Roosevelt told the nation
from Chicago last night, as he pre-
pared, on the heels of Gov. Alfred
M. Landon, to make his first visit to
Michigan since the 1932 campaign.
The President will arrive in Grand
Rapids at 9:30 a.m. today and de-
liver a speech from Campau square
there before his special train leaves
for Lansing. Arriving in the State
Capital at 12:30 p.m., he will be ac-
corded a formal welcome from Gov-
ernor Fitzgerald and speak from the
rear platform of his train. He will
also make brief addresses in Flint,
Pontiac, Hamtramck and Highland
Park before arriving in Detroit for
the main speech of his Michigan tour.
To Speak At 8:30 P.M.
By automobile, President Roose-
velt will come up Playfair Street to
Joseph Campau Avenue, south to
East Grand Boulevard, west to Wood-
ward Avenue and south to the City
Hall. He will speak at 8:30 p.m.,
from his car in front of the City Hall,
after he is introduced by Frank
Murphy, Democratic candidate for
Governor, chairman of the meeting.
A loud speaker system will make it
possible for the President to be heard
for a distance of two blocks in every
direction jrom the City Hall, ac-
cording to Don Kennedy, business
manager of the State Highway de-
partment and chairman of arrange-
ments. Flood lights will also be
played on the Presidential car.
After his speech, President Roose-
velt will go to the Book-Cadillac
Hotel for conferences with Demo-
cratic party leaders until his train
leaves at 11:59 p.m., from the Union
Station, for Cincinnati.
Speaking of what he called "fairy
tales and bogey-men" which he said
Republican leaders were using to
spread fear, the President last night
"You have heard about how an-
tagonistic to business this Adminis-
tration is said to be. You have heard
all about the dangers which the
business of America is supposed to be
facing if this Administration con-
Mentions Record
"The answer to that is the record
of what we have done. It was this
Administration which saved the sys-
tem of private profit and free en-
terprise after it had been dragged to
the brink of ruin by these same
leaders who now try to scare you."
A few moments later he remrked
that the"struggle" againstmonopoly
is a struggle for and not against
American business-a struggle to pre-
serve individual enterprise and ec-
onomic freedom.
The President spoke from the flag-

festooned stage of the Chicago Sta-
dium to thousands of people cram-
med into every available seat. Four
years ago in the same hall he ac-
cepted the Democratic nomination
for the Presidency.

MOSCOW, Oct. 14.-(P)-Russia
tonight demanded blockade of Portu-

arms to the Spanish Insurgents.
An official communique called up-
on the neutrality committee to urge
the British or French navy, or both,
to patrol Portuguese ports.
"We demand from the .committee
the establishment of such control,"
the communique said.
The Russian demands, the com-
munique said, were, handed directly
in the form of a note to Lord Ply-
mouth, chairman of the Spanish

said, that the body be reconvened

Soviet representative Moiseyevich

discuss alleged neutrality violations.
Lord Plymouth's reply to Soviet
representatives said:
"I do not think it would be proper
for me to summon a further meeting
immediately . e
"All specific complaints brought
against Portugal were submitted to,
and discussed by, the committee Oct.
9, and the Portuguese government
was requested to supply as early as
possible such explanations as were
necessary to establish the facts.
" . . . your note contains no ad-
ditional evidence to show in fact
that the (neutrality) agreement has
been violated."

committee be reconvened this week to
act on Moscow's charges that Portu-

For Liberal
Nominee Says New Deal

Exemplifies Progresses
Under 'Old Truths'
GRAND RAPIDS, Oct. 15.-(P)-
Contending the New Deal has con-
fused change with progress, Gover-
nor Alf M. Landon called tonight for'
a "forward-looking liberal govern-
ment" based upon principles tested
by time and experience.
"We know from history and from
the hard school of experience that
we desert the old truths only at our,
peril," the Republican presidential
nominee said.
Landon spoke to a crowd from a
hotel balcony after a day's campaign-
ing through Michigan's industrial.

endorsement from the automobile
state's biggest industrialist, Henry
Describes "Best" Government
Referring to the Grand Rapids
furniture industry, the Kansan ex-
emplified his picture of the "best"
government as a "progressive appli-
cation of old truths" by saying:
"The craftsmen whose skill is re-
sponsible for the success of your fa-
mous isdustry here did not start by
discarding good designs which are
still famous, even though some of
them go back way beyond the horse
and buggy days. On the contrary
they cherished and respected them."
The nominee said the New Deal
"too often has been liberal only in
the spending of other people's
money" and again pledged a bal-
anced budget without depriving the
needy of help or the farmer of aid.
"Once the government at Wash-
ington has been restored to an effi-
cient and constitutional basis," he
said, "there is going to be general
revival of confidence throughout the
country and confidence is the fore-
runner of real recovery ...
Made Poorest Record
"Under this administration we
have made the poorest record in our
history in recovering from hard
"The country has been ripe for
recovery for the last two years.
Once all this consumer demand is
released, the problem will not be
where to find jobs for the unem-
ployed. The task then will be where
to find workers for the work."
The veteran Ford said in a state-
ment in Detroit after conferring with
the Kansan, that "I admire and be-
lieve in him; I hope he is elected."
Ate From Bucket
"He ate out of a dinner bucket for
years and he still thinks along with
the men who carry dinner buckets,"
Ford said. "It is not a pose with him
-it is his nature. Gov. Landon's
mind has not been warped."
The tall, thin capitalist added':
"I am not criticizing the New Deal
- only say that we have had enough
of it, we have had about all of it
the country can stand. Its intention
may have been good, but its perform-
ance was very poor."
Ford said the New Deal, in its so-
cial security program, was "making
to the workmen the same impossible
promises that it made to the bus-
iness men."

A tentative program, prepared by

stressed that the Council was not a
closed organization, as he made the
invitation to all students and faculty
interested in the cause of peace, to
attend tonight's meeting and aid in
deciding a course of action for the
coming semesters.
Plans include bringing speakers to
talk on peace, and anti-war moving

President Roosevelt held a slender

votes were cast.
The President received 933 of the
votes to 898 for Governor Landon.
It was the heaviest first'day of vot-
ing ever recorded in student polls
conducted by The Daily.
The close vote indicated a wide-

two to one majority over President

date polled 1,615 votes in 1932 to 748
for Roosevelt.
The first day of voting also indi-
cated that student interest in the
presidential election is much greater
than in 17932 when the total vote was
2,821, only 811 more than was record-
ed in yesterday's balloting. Voting
is expected to fall off during the
final days of voting today and to-
Norman Thomas, Socialist candi-
date, ran third with 99 votes. He
was closely followed by Earl Brow-
der, Communist candidate, who
polled 69 votes. Rep. William Lemke,
candidate of . the Union party, was
well down the list with eight votes.
Ruthven Receives Vote
Three others, President Ruthven,
Prof. John H. Muyskens of the speech
department, and John W. Aiken, So-
cialist-Labor candidate, each re-
ceived one vote although their names
were not on the ballot.
The vote for Thomas was lower
than expected, while the Communist
vote exceeded expectations. It is
generally believed that the total So-
cialist vote will be considerably
smaller than the 420 votes cast for
Thomas in 1932. The vote for Brow-
der is already more than double the
total recorded by William Foster the
Communist candidate in the, 1932
straw vote.
Considered significant by many in
the vote for Thomas and Browder
were six votes cast for Browder by
members of fraternities and sorori-
ties, and 22 for Thomas.
President Roosevelt jumped into a
large lead in the returns from four
of the' six voting places on the cam-
pus, but heavy Republican voting at
the Union and League polling places
cut his lead down.
Women's Vote Light
Voting by women students was
much lighter than expected. Lead-
ers of women's organizations on the
campus were busy today in attempts
to get out the women's vote.
The polls were closely watched yes-
terday by members of campus Re-
publican, Democratic and Socialist
organizations. No clashes among the
students were reported, however.
Voting will continue today and to-
morrow at the six polling places lo-
cated in the Angell Hall lobby, on
the diagonal in front of the main
library, under the Engineering Arch,
in front of the Union, in the League,
and on the mall between the School
of Education and College of Archi-
tecture. The polls will be open from
9 a.m. through 12:30 p.m., and from
1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
All students who wish to vote must
show their identification cards. Each
card is checked to insure against
multiple voting.
