WASHINGTON, Nov. 3.-(A)-The
full story of Tuesday's election results
serves to center the nation's atten-
tion on Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia
of New York City, who was returned

majority. But it also increases con-
fusion as to national portents to be
reAd into the scattered verdicts of
millions of voters.
That LaGuardia may receive con-
sideration for a presidential nomina-
tion, perhaps without any interven-

For the pleasure of this year's Press
Club, Professor Brumm promises
something different in the way of
theatrical entertainment. "Puppets,"
the professor describes as a three-act,
realistic play with allegorical impli-
cations. A group of characters is as-
sembled for the ordinary transac-I
tion of a plot sequence, but the action
no sooner gets under way than it is
discovered that the characters have
been abandoned by their creator.
Having brought them into being, the
playwright throws them upon their
own resources of creative activity. In
such a plight, the characters, na-
turally enough, undertake to improve;
ture" make the substance of the play.
The question is, "Can they go through
with it on their own, without the dull
pattern of a predetermined course

plays, "Scrambled Ego," was a satire
