STATE ARMORY. Newark, N
Oct. 244-(At) Al Smith, be
fore a capacity crowd of -wildly
cheering men and women, took
the stamp tonight to deliver hia
first campaign speech for the
(Roosevelt Garner ticket.
A broad grin played across the
"happy warrior's" countenance as
be faced a battery ot flood lights
and frenihid throng to New Jer
sey, democrats, wh03 leaders had
supported him for the presiden
tial nomination in the Chicago
convention. -.J.. : -.'.'
It was several rninutes after
Smith stepped to the front of the
platform before the throng wonld
allow him to begin.-;
Speaking . ot hlsYt appearance
here four years ago, .be said:
"Well, we're four years older
and ' 40 yars wiser. We were
waging an Impossible fight then.
Hoover Prevented
Plank for Repeal
Speaking' , of the republican
platform en prohibition. Smith
said: ;
"He (President Hoover) tried
to make mp for that In his ac
ceptance speech. He wanted to
, get th liberal, the city golf fel
low."
iie saia xr. Hoover naa "pre
vented" the republican conven-
, tion from "taking a clear cut
stand" on prohibition.
- "That convention," be continu-
- ed would have adopted . au out
and out repeal plank, but they
ran Into Hoover, himself the real
dry force In the country today."
Boos .came from the audience
as Smith read slowly through a
list of prominent jrpMbiifcBy or-
. ganlsation . officials - who. he said
were supporting the president for
re-election.
Bays O. O. P. Plank
Binds no Candidate
He said the republican prohi
bition plan "was not Intended to
mean anything.
"It was written," he said, "so
any candidate in any congression
al district can say 'Oh, I'm not
bound by. that platform'."
He said this made it easy for
republican candidates to . receive
the support , of the "aggregation
of bigots that make up the dry
forces.
."The result of it all has been
just this," he continued, "the de
- mocratle plank has put the demo
crats in the bright lights and
the republicans are left, the party
of bigotry, deceit and hypocrisy."
Grain Growers
: Back Scheme to
Limit Planting
SPOKANE, Oct. 24 (AP)
Directors of North Pacific Grain
Growers Inc., at a special meeting
here today, predicted that north
western wheat men would sup
port the proposed acreage allot
ment plan for curtailing-production.
The directors were- called by
President A'. R. Shumway of Mil
ton, Ore., to discuss the proposed
sale of 15.000,000 bushels ot
whetLt to the Chinese government,
but none would comment on the
board's deliberations on this sub--
Ject, - ,
The wheat allotment plan is
embodied In a bill pending in con-
gress. "
BERLIN, Oct.24 (AP) Germany has enough to worry
her. Chancellor Von Papen said today in a speech here,
without haying to worry about plans to restore the old mon-.
arcny. . - .-. - - - '
- "There has been a lot of talk about restoration of the
monarchy," he said. 'TThe foreign press took up these reports
- -- r- Oand argued cleverly that sueh a
move would mean the danger of
unrest in Europe and that there
fore it was necessary to draw
tighter the tetters ot Versailles.
"We don't concede the right ot
anybody abroad to Judge what
form of state is most suitable for
Germany. That is tor the German
people alone to decide. Bat I
have emphasised and I want to re
peat unmistakably that we have
such a. multitude of problems to
solve that' we are glad If Ire don't
have, in addition, to worry about
questions of the form of the state.
That question is not an issue."
He discussed the economic out
look, asserting that common sense
Justified faith in more favorable
economic development. ,
'Improvement In the world eco
nomic situation has been contin
uing in recent weeks," he said
"Unless all signs mislead us, the
drop in prices for raw materials
from which the collapse ot world
economy emanated has reached
an end."
