The opponent and possible rival is Gov. Eugene Tnlmadge, touted as suc- ccfsor to Huey Long as principal sour note in the Roosevelt chorus which will be next summer's Democratic nominating convention. Thc test will be made Nov. 29 in thc huge Grant. Field of Georgia Tich here—11 broadcast speech by the president at n celebration of his "home coming" to the state ho considers his "second home." No pains arc being spared, by the Democratic friends of the president in this region to turn out an overflow crowd.

George and Richard B. Russell, heading the congressional reception committee, believe the crowd may reach 200,000 and become one of the greatest political demons!rnlions ever stagetl in the south. For weeks all hotel rooms have been reserved, and cmcrgncy lodgings arc being sought. Governor Not Invited To this picnic, Governor Talmadgc hasn't bc-en invited. His name has been omitted from the list of notables who will sit on the platform with thc president. Thnt is unusual for n governor, (•specially a Democratic governor. But Roosevelt partisans in Georgia insist it would not be fitting to include in j thc program the stormy governor, who repeatedly has assailed the New Dealers as "a bunch of Communists" and announced that he will try resolutely to prevent Roosevelt's rcnominatton. If Talmadge is present nt all, it will bo merely as a spectator. Some think he will make a point of being absent from thc city on thc 29th.

Ridgdill. 'Students will be picked Up and fined unless they drive slower, was the v/arning from Chief Ridgdill. Numerous complaints have reached officers lately of fast driving by students oh these two streets. The complaints were not only for speed but tor wreckless driving with cars loaded with students. Chief Ridgdill also pointed out the danger in students riding on fenders and running boards.' Officers will be stationed at street intersections with orders to arrest persons who drive.at a fast clip, Ridgdill concluded. DeVaughn Store Is • Robbed; $200 Taken Rear Door Unlatched, .

These articles will bo written by Dr. Morris Fishbein, famous medical authority, who, for the last «ight years, has conducted a daily health column which has appeared in The Star and hundreds of other NEA Service newspapers throughout the country. This daily column has made him thc best known and most popular medical writer in America. Dr. Fishbein is particularly qualified to write about fods and diets, and their relation to health. As editor of the Journal of thc American Medical Association and of Hygeia, the Henlth Magazine, he is one of the first to get exact information concerning the latest achievements in medicine, and to expose thc folly of passing food fads. He has written numerous books and&> magazine articles, and is in constant demand for public and professional lectures on health topics all over the country. The new column will cover systematically the subject of dieting. Dr. Fishbein will start in by telling how your food is digested and what each part of your digestive system has to do. Next he will debunk various diet fads, telling the truth about each, and giving the real facts about foods and their uses. Then, in regular order, he will devote a complete series of articles on foods and their classifications, diets ancl diseases related to dieting, diets for specific ailments, diets for gaining Attendance at Dance Is Expected fail to be impressed by a vast outpouring in honor of Roosevelt.

Coach Hammons said at noon Thursday that he would shift Vasco Bright to the quarterback position. If the ankle permits, Cargile may be seen running from a halfback position against Beebe. Coach Hammons is also anxious that Bright gain as much experience as possible in running the team. The Bobcat mentor is counting on Bright for a future quarterback in years to come. The balance of the team is believed to be in good condition. The game has been designated as a home-coming affair and the final appearance of the squad on the home lot is expected to add to the attendance Friday night.

The successful ambuscade of a train of 72 Italian trucks carrying somali warriors and munitions, was described in unofficial reports from Harar. More than 150 Somalis were killed or wounded while Ethiopian casualties were estimated in excess of 300. The Battle, south of Sasa Baneh on the left bank of thc river Fafan, was waged without quarter. Several Italian officials were wounded, but escaped, and 53 of the trucks were believed captured, the Harar dispatches stated.

She thought, looking up at the big, weather-beaten old building in front of her, that it looked very weary, almost as though it were ready to give up. There was nothing familiar about it. Nothing even faintly resembling the house of which ove by M*ry Raymond Copyright NEA 1935 she; had clraiinwl .since she was a child. She had asked Ih cab driver, puzzled, "You're sure this is the Cameron home? Mrs. Willarr] P. Cameron, you know?" "Yes, miss. I know the place well." And so Dana Westbrook had climbed put. And now she stood staring up at the old house supported by immense Corinthian columns that had once been white and now were only a dirty gray. Soberly, she picked up her light case and opened the old iron gate, sagging dejectedly on rusty hinges. And then up the long, brick walk from which many bricks were conspicuously missing. A moment later she pulled down the ancient bronze bell. A hollow peal, which she knew must be resounding hideously within, greeted her. The door was opened. Very little at first, as though by a cautious hand. And then wider, permitting the face of an old lady to peep throng 1 . She had gray hair, drawn back neatly, and blue eyes that held a hint of surprise in them. Impetuously, Dana put down her traveling case. There was a joyous note in her voice: "You're Grandmother Cameron, aren't you?" "Goodness me, no!" The old lady's voice rose in protest. Then, "Why, you must be Dana. Come in, my deal 1 . And where is your grandmother? She went to meet you." "I don't know. You see I hadn't the faintest idea what my grandmother looked like. No seemed to be looking for me, and so I got a cab and came out." "Yes. of course," said the old lady, her eyes darting anxiously from Dana to the door. "I'm afraid, though, your grandmother won't like it. You see, in our family we always meet trains. And it is rather a reflection on us that you should come home for the first time in twenty- odd years in a cab." (Continued on page five)
