An analysis of this switching shows an average gain for Doosevclt states of 5.39 per cent. The snmc analysis indicates barbecue. That's a big gamble. It might have failed. But it's no bigger than the gamble Hope vised to take every year on its community spectacles—and from which the city reaped big dividends. The firemen have sot a pace for the business district to follow. XXX Louisiana, groaning under an expensive state government, watches Huey Long strut before the legislature and demand new high taxes to support an insufferable regime. Where Is the taxpayer's relief? If at the polls, that is no relief, you say, because presumably the direct 'taxpayers have gone to the polls the in the 48 that Roosevelt has incurred net losses of support among th voters in this New Deal Poll in 20 states and net gains in the other 28 states sinve 1932. The larger losses were tallied in the South and in the agricultural sections while the larger gains were noted in New England and Eastern industrfial states and those on the Pacific coast. The greatest switch from Roosevelt is shown in South Carolina and the greatest switch to him, over 14 per cent, in Califordnia. All But Bankers In the six special polls that the Digest conducted among bankers, clergy business men, educators, lawyers anc physicians, all groups vote in favor of Ro'oscvelt's acts and policies exccp the bankers. The bankers vote 13,375 to 12,538 against the New Deal. Of the 24.85!) votes received from ministers of the nation 13,513, or 54,356 per cent, mark their ballots in favo ' of Rcosevelt's acts and policies "01 the whole." The poll of the business men show, 5fi.23 per cent of the 54,688 voting a in favor of the New Deal. B7 20 per cent of the 13,953 cducotor 5319 per cent of the 34,695 lawyers and 56.83 per cent of the 43,728 physicians forwarding "straw ballots" also vote in supjxirt of the New Deal. Another special poll conducted a* mong the undergraduates of 17 American colleges and universities gives a majority of 64.35 per cent for the New of how the same stud- ast few years and been voted down. Well, the answer is twofold: In the first plage., n flrc,at .many peo- Jfr 'do'nT'vote. They 'take 'the high- iat view of a Chinese mndarin, "All j'-litics is disgusting." And therefore hey are cheerfully skinned by other oiks to whom politics is not so disgusting as hard labor. But part of the trouble lies in the 'act thnt we Americans are getting iway from our original principles of government. We arc in the frame of mind of tolerating a vote on anything. More and more we arc deserting the careful scheme by which our ancestors severely limited the subjects on which the electorate might vote. The constitution defined the broad base of government, and concerning those things incorporated in the constitution neither the legislature nor the people—except by a slow and devious process of amendment—had any authority whatsoever. The more we get away from that principle—the constitution for permanency, and the legislature and the popular vote for current and temporary issues—the more we get away from that principle the worse our government becomes. Coach Hammons, for the past two years has been athletic instructor at Monticello A. and M. college. Mr. Hammons is widely known in Arkansas, having coached at Pine Bluff High School from 1H21 to 1926, producing several state championship winners.

With the puzzling problem of yon Papen's disposition for the first time somewhat clarified, reports indicating that the Nazis have opened a vigorous anti-Jewish campaign in the provincial centers claimed major attention. Also, it was rumored that Cardinal Michael Faulhaber, archbishop of Munich, was being held a prisoner. The Associated Press learned from Frau von Fapen that the vice-chan- ellor's home had been raided again Wednesday night. News of the slaying of four persons n Silesia "for attempting to escape while being transported" was one of the strongest indications of anti-Jewish violence. Hundreds of persons were reported fleeing from the country. Although the capital seemed to be recovering its equilibrium after "the second revolution" correspondents located in provincial sections appeared unable to get their dispatches through, and disquiet wa sfelt over conditions outside of Berlin. Copyright, Associated Press Rioting Again Hits 'Frisco Waterfront; Cops Battle Unions SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.-(/P)-Rioting broke out again on the waterfront here Thursday.

The tear-gas shells set fire to the grass on Rincon Hill and fire also broke out among railroad boxcars, but was extinguished. *efj >'< i «' letter day in American government. Obviously it is a move that would wing relief to the taxpayers of Louisiana. For none but a fool will argue that the taxpayers are to be left forever at the mercy of every smooth-tongued demagogue who, like Huey Long, happens upon the scene about once in each generation. That's what the constitution is for •to protect the people from making mistakes that the next generation must pay for. RAPPER b'ANNY SAYS: RtO. U. S. PAT. OFF.

He tempered his charge of "bureau cracy" apainst the administration will a statement that so long as the administration ficht was for the correc lion of abuses during the depressioi he would support the administration. Then he swung back to say: "But the effort to fasten a stranglehold system of bureaucracy upon the people generally, to place producers and small business in a network of laws and rules and regulations which not only embarrass the people j but aggravate their distress, I shall oppose in every wsy I know."

Teague. special agent for the Fire Underwriters association, announced here Tuesday that Charles Crosnoe, sign painter of Hope, had confessed that he set fire to the drugstore of Martin S.

BERLIN,—President Paul von Hindenburg refused Wednesday to bow before the will of Adolf Hitler, and the president's protege, Franz von Papen, kept his place as vice chancellor of the Reich, Hitler, who a few days ago ruthlessly kiled his enemies in the Nazi party, came back to Berlin from a conference at Neudeck with the 86- year-old president. Shortly afterward it was announced that von Papen, who not only is not a Nazi but is a critic of many Nazi policies, would keep his position. Until Tuesday it had been the plan of the "purged" Nazi party to remove him from office and give the second place in the cabinet to Hermann Wilhelm Goering, at present Hitler's closest collaborator. When the "resignation" was not forthcoming as expected, Hitler flew jy plane to the country estate of the president, who hald told the Reich- wehr (regular army) to protect von Papen. Von Papen did not attend the cabinet session, a friend said, because he did not want to sign his name to the [aw legalizing the executions Saturday and 'Sunday. If he had done so he would have been force dto approve the violent death of his own close collaborator, Hubert von Bose. Another cabinet member also was said to have absented himself because he could not beaer to commend the killing of Erich Klausener, leader of the Catholic Action party. With a crisp "Get away—you are too stupid to have done anything, ' Premier Goering is reported to have absolved Prince August Wilhelm, fourth son of the ex-kaiser, from complicity in the German coup, says the Exchange Telegraph News Agency.

Other long and medium term omi- gations held in Great Britain, which are mostly commercial, will not be serviced under the moratorium, under the terms of the agreement.
