Why I Will Vote for Hoover
(Features Editor, Oregon Emerald)
"^OU should pick out this day to
ask me such a question. When
already I have been exposed to the
toughest questionnaire i nave ever
faced, a quiz in money and bank
The platforms of the outstand
ing candidates, Herbert Hoover and
Franklin D. Roosevelt, are so sim
ilar that there is little choice from
that angle. The records of both,
judging from what their support
ers say, are so good that choice
on this point is equally as diffi
* * *
So I must turn to what I con
sider my 'personal interests in
making a decision. I will list a1
few facts to bring out my point:
My father was working for a
Republican paper when I was born.
Since our home, the furnishings
for it, the food we ate and even
the doctor bill was paid for by
the earnings of working in the
capital of a Republican state for
a Republican paper, I feel that I
owe the beginning of my life to
the Republicans.
Shortly thereafter, my father
became the secretary of a Repub
lican senator and it was on money
received from him that I started
in the grade schools. Then the
Democrats were put in office and
my father was put out of a job
(1913) but the Republicans rose
in the emergency and he was made
publicity manager for the Repub
lican party.
* * *
It was on money raised by sub
scription funds of the Republican
party that I completed my elemen
tary and secondary education and
entered upon my collegiate edu

He came into the editor’s office,
a tall, gangling fellow, and looked
pensively at the photograph hang
ing above one of the desks.
“Where’d Neuberger get this pic

Hitchcock asked.
Associate Editor Gale looked up
from his busy typewriter and
gazed attentatively at the afore
said picture.
“What do you mean, your cou

a picture of a polo game.”
“And there's my cousin,” re
turned the beaming Mr. Hitch
cock. “That's him, Thomas Hitch
cock, Jr. Of course, you know who
he is.”
“Yeh, sure, I know who he is,”
said Gale, “but I don't know yet
that he’s your cousin.”
“Yep, no foolin’,” declared
Parks. “He's my cousin, is Cap’n
Tommy. Yes, sir, Thomas Hitch
cock, my cousin.”
“And is Napoleon your niece?”
chimed in Dick Neuberger.
"No, sir,” said Parks, "but Cal

Nominee for Senate
Speaks to Democrats
That the Republican tariff sys
tem is responsible for much of the
depression was one of the points
emphasized by Walter B. Gleason,
Democratic nominee for senator,
in a talk to the Young Democratic
league at the Osburn hotel last
After dealing with the various
phases of the system, Mr. Gleason
went on to predidt that Franklin
Roosevelt would defeat Hoover in
Oregon by a majority of 50,000
votes. Ed Bailey, chairman of the
Lane county Democratic commit
tee, also spoke.
About fifty people, including
many from the campus, were

Schedule Change
O f Emerald Radio
Program Made
_ •
Beginning today, the Emerald
of-the-Air will be broadcast during
the noon-hour, from 12:15 to
12:30, every day except Sunday.
The change from 4:15 is advan
tageous in that it puts the stu
dents’ broadcast before the stu
dents at a time when they can
most conveniently listen to it. Al
so, the noon-hour is one that in
sures a greater audience for the
Emerald-of-the-Air throughout the
entire southern part of the state
In addition to the regular pro
gram at 12:15, the Emerald-of
the-Air announces its dramatic
presentation to be broadcast every
Tuesday evening at 7:15.

Of Soeialist Group
Congress Candidate Streiff
Upholds Aspeets of
“Man is the only animal that
starves amidst plenty,” Albert
Streiff, socialist candidate for con
gress in the third congressional
district, told his audience yester
day afternoon when he spoke at 4
o’clock in Villard hall on "What
Socialism Is and Is Not.” “The
people of this country should own
the industries of America, so that
every man, woman and child may
be clothed and fed.”
Although the great mass of the
people still think that the socialists
believe in dividing up, the facts
are that we have never advocated
such procedure, the speaker said.
“If capital creates all wealth,
as many have maintained in the
past, why, then, do people have to
work?" Mr. Streiff asked. “Labor
Creates all the wealth, 't’oday, 90
per cent of the wealth of the coun
try is owned and controlled by 5
per cent of the people, and the
wealth is concentrating so fast
that soon it will all be o.wned by
Wall street"
Mr. Streiff explained how the
very wealthy had obtained their
fortunes by machines, and added
that if the machines made the
wealthy rich that it should be the
people as a whole that owned
them. He said that a person whe
believes in the ownership of ma
chines of production by the people
was a socialist.
The talk was not a political
speech, but rather of an educa
tional nature. Mr. Streiff was in
troduced by Rolla Reedy. George
R. Buickerood, state chairman o;
the Socialist party, spoke briefly
preceding Mr. Streiff’s talk.
Tomorrow Afternoon
A. W. S. council members will
be the first guests of the W. A.
A. under its new recreational
program. They will meet tomor
row afternoon in the women’s
gym to “dunk” doughnuts and
play games, it was announced by
the W. A. A. council.
At the meeting it was also de
cided to get the recreation pro
gram under way for all women
on the campus between 4 and 6
o'clock every Friday afternoon.
At present, swimming is sche
duled only between 4 and 5, but
if the demand is great enough,
arrangements will be made to
have a life guard on duty the
full period.
Why I Will Vote for Roosevelt
WrE need a change. The air has
” become stagnated too long
with the noxious poisons of a dec
adent regime. Mr. Hoover has
tried, but what a miserable fail
ure of applying his academic the
ories to the facts of government,
is made only too obvious by sur
veying the contemporary scene.
Business is in th^ throes of the
worst financial disaster in modern
history; the list of unemployed has
sky-rocketed towards amazing to
tals; America and Americans are
despairing of ever casting off the
pair of leaden wings under which
they have been attempting to fly
i these last three years.
* * *
Mr. Hoover was swept in upon
the “full dinner-pail” mania; his
party’s slogans and futile promises
, collapsed at the first rollings of
; thunder. Since that fateful Tal
jlowe’en in 1929, Mr. Hoover and
his aides have been struggling
hopelessly in the quicksands of
befuddlement. Their redundant
sophistries on government have
proved themselves utterly false
and ambiguous.
And now election day rolls
around again and we find Mr.
Hoover and his ever-optimistic
Republican party attempting to
gain office again on the same
stale, old promises, tempered only
so slightly by the disappointments
of four years of hopeless strug
gling. The same old promises of
that elusive will-o’-the-wisp pros
perity with that ever evanescent
“just around the corner" will no
longer beguile the thinking Amer
ican citizen into casting his vote
for one who has had his shot at
the mark, and failed even to come

Granted, then, that Mr. Hoovei

Great Interest
In Straw Poll
Students Eagerly Await j
Balloting Thursday
Thomas Fairly Popular in Some
Localities, But Hoover Way
Ahead on ('oast
National politics was on the
forefront of the campus horizon
yesterday. It is expected to re
main there until after Thursday
noon, when the Emerald will con
duct Its straw poll on the presiden
tial situation. Interest in the en
terprise was manifested over the
week-end and increased yesterday
as classes began for the week.
A great deal of interest was
taken in the rapidly-increasing
results of polls in other universi
ties and colleges in the nation.
Returns from all over the country
indicate a tight struggle in the
forthcoming race, and show that
whichever way the country
swings, it will be only by a small
Thomas Comes to Fore
One of the features of the presi
dential race this year is the in
creasingly prominent part that the
Socialist party, headed by Norman
Thomas and James Maurer, is
playing. Although Mr. Thomas
does not expect to be elected, he
hopes to poll a far larger number
of ballots than a Socialist candi
date has ever obtained before.
As the dope goes, the incum
bent, Mr. Hoover, is almost cer
tain to carry the Pacific coast, if
college polls are any sign. At U.
S. C. he polled 526 votes to 337
for Roosevelt, and 104 for Thomas.
At California, a little nearer his
; home stamping ground, he car
ried 410 votes to 180 for Roose
velt, and 162 for Thomas. At a
straw ballot recently held at Ore
gon State, he took 280 votes to
166 for the New York governor,
and 15 for Thomas.
East for Roosevelt
In the East it is another story,
however. At Notre Dame, Roose
velt polled 320 votes, Thomas 295,
and Hoover 46. At the University
of Missouri, Roosevelt led with
570 ballots to Hoover's 407, and
Thomas’ 68.
The Emerald poll will be con
lucted with the assistance of
Sigma Delta Chi and Theta Sigma
’’hi, men’s and women's journalism
honoraries, respectively. Repre
sentatives will be appointed to
oanvass the living organizations
ind those students who do not
take lunch at any such organiza
tion will be given the opportunity
to cast a vote at the Journalism
building between 12:00 noon and
1:30 p. m.
The Emerald hopes, through this
system, to present the most com
plete and effective forecast of
:ampiis opinion ever undertaken.

I believe a vote for Thomas is both

I am not a Socialist. I have no

and the equally-sinister engine
that “Casey Jones” Roosevelt and
“Pork” Garner are attempting to
manipulate into office, I have but
little sympathy. The chief differ-!

is the “ins,” and the other is the!
