WASHINGTON, Nov. 6. - (A)-
President Roosevelt as a campaigner
piled up the biggest electoral vote in

The President had made three,
other forecasts, but he described the
fourth and last as his best. Grinning,
he apologised for the bad guess.
The President's first forecast was
made last Jan. 30. Then he figured
the Democratic vote at 325, Repub-
lican 206.
On June 5, just before the conven-
tions, he figured: Democrats 315, Re-

that their situation is "most serious."
He asked McGrady to persuade
union authorities to permit movement:

Strike Committee was considering the
request. -
Union claims indicated 380 ships
were tied up. New York strikers

Thurston ,Bowsher Assert"
System Lacks Efficiency

Officers of two state departments c
of education emphasized the need1
for reform in their systems before a t
large audience in the University High
School yesterday. f
Dr. Lee M. Thurston, deputy sup- d
wrintendent of Public Instruction in s
Michigan and E. L. Bowsher, direct- t
or of education in the Ohio depart-
ment of education told the Parent P
Education Institute that the machin- a
ery of education must be made more o
efficient and that well paid, well h
trained and unimpeded teachers be c
Dr. Thurston said shortly after his C
address that he considers the prob-
lem of finance the most pressing tob
the department of education.
"Some teachers receive stipendsi
smaller thqn those given to reliefi
workers," he said. "There is also the
problem of nepotism which one may t
find in countless school districts t
throughout Michigan."
Continuing in his presentation of
the financial problem Dr. ThurstonF
said that the state had not construct-
ed or added to school buildings ex- n
cept with the aid of federal funds, t
"Many buildings are unhygienic
and others are overcrowded," Dr.a
Thurston continued.P
Earlier in the day Mr. Bowsher
expressed opinions which were ofp
a similar nature. He pointed to the
elimination in his state of the one
room rural school as a method of in--b
creasing the efficiency of the de-t
partment of education.,
"One of the difficulties facing the
advance of progressive educationalu
plans is the attitude of the publicc
against innovations. That attitude
must change if children of the fu-
ture are to benefit from public ed-
ucation," Bowsher indicated. V

With his advance troops already
only four miles from Madrid proper,
Franco was understood to have made
his decision because of the sudden
cessation of government resistance.
The defenders of Madrid tonight
showed no signs of fighting.
All was quite on the Getafe front
except for a few desultory cannon
shots at nightfall.
At Getafe one fascist line faced
Madrid, and another, around the
abandoned airport, faced the Los An-
geles district.
When the Fascists marched into
;etafe they found only a few women
who with babes in arms crept out of
the cellars where they had huddled
during the bombardment of the vil-
lage by both belligerents.
Many buildings in Getafe were
wrecked and stores and houses were
looted before the Fascists entered.
After the battle it was apparent
