( AP) The sincerity of former
Senator Owen bolting toe demo-;
critic arty was questioned today
by Governor Smith, who recalled
that Owen, as a presidential as
pirant "himself four years ago,
sought the support of Tammany
hall, which he now Is assailing.

noanced .yesterday In New York
that he had cast his lot with the
republicans this year because of
Smith's stand on prohibition and
his alliance with Tammany.
Upon'1 this development at the
outset of his press conference to
day GoTernor Smith- advised the
reporters to let their peftdls "rest
a minute" as he had prepared a
formal statement, one of the few
be has given out since his nom
ination at Houston. v,
.Calling for copies, the nominee,
before they were distributed, read
his statement solemnly.
"Naturally I am eorry to see
Senator Owen leave the democratic
tarty because of my nomination,"
it -began. "However, he is a "free
American citizen and has the right
to choose the party that best suits
" "Mv srreatest regret comes from
one of the reasons advanced be-
eaiioe it compels me to question
Then the governor recounted
that during the Madison Square
fTarden convention deadlocked
tour years ago Owen called to see
Kim at the Manhattan club across
the street from the convention
hall, "and asked me to use my in
fluence to secure for him the sup
port of the Tammany delegation
nd etated that with that support
je, .f e$t he could get considerable
(tele rates from other states for
himself as a candidate for the
nomination of president."
"His hostility to Tammany
hall, Smith concluded, "must
have grown up in his heart In the
last four years. In 1924 he was
not only willing to accept its sup
port but quite anxious to get it."
That was all the democratic
presidential nominee had to say
about Owen's bolt, or about pol
itics today. He declined to com
ment on the retirement from the
democrat committee of Senator
Simmons of North Carolina.' who

that Heeney, the plodder, had met
his master, and that his finish
