Thomas said the governor of New Tork State and Democratic presidential nominee "was more obedient to Tammany than any ether Governor In recent years," and since the resignation of Mayor Walker a Mayor of New York City "is trading his endorsement of s Tammany man . . . for machine gupport at the polls." 'After laying the Empire State Governor proved himself "unable or ' unwilling either to regulate banking or to curb Wall Street," Thomas asserted "what Is still Worse la the political company Governor Roosevelt keeps." - Thomas named as examples of Roosevelt's company: Vincent As-tor, William Randolph Hearst, Frank Hague of New Jersey, John Vance Garner, Huey Long, and Owen D.

The birth of Fabiola Hospital's last baby marks the pasnlng of an organization, originally drafted by 18 women founders' and maintained for the past 66 years by voluntary contributions and revenue from those patients able to pay In full. Mrs. J. r. H. Dunn, president of the Fabiola Hospital Association for the past 16 years, declares the move has been forced through lack of funds, but points out that the work of the Fabiola Hospital Association will remain active with the possibility that at some future date operation may be resumed.

Pratt is a graduate of the Yale School of Forest y and worked for the federal government In this state from 1905 to 1914. From 1914 to 1918 he. was assistant professor of forestry at the University of California. When appointed by Governor Stephens, Pratt's office staff consisted of one clerk. There are now apprexomately ;0Q men under him. lllood declared today that he had received "no direct word" from the Governor with regard to Piatt and refused to discuss the reported letters from Smith. "Personally, I am entirely satisfied with Pratt, both from a standpoint of efficiency and freedom from political activity," Blood said. CAFE MAN HlCLlt V.P SAN (FRANCISCO, Oct. 24.

The first baby on the hospital record whs that ot Mrs. Mnrgarct Munther, born on December 7, 1 R S 3 . From 1883 until 1891 few babies were born at the hospital duo mainly to the fnc.t that confinement cases were at the time usually cared for at the patient's home. Abaut 110 births are recorded for the years from 1891 to 1900. According to Mrs. Dunn, with the rapid' strides of modern life, from tho year 1900 on obstetrics became a good part of the work of tho hospital. "In making an approximate survey of the number of babies born nt Fabiola from 1900 to the present time," said Mrs. Dunn, "1 should say that about 14,175 Infants have been born tinder our roof. Perhaps at some future time, If we nr a!! to open again, we may double that number." Dudley Field Malone Drops Roosevelt and Will Support Hoover (Continued From Page 1.) times an assoclnte of Malone In legal matters, commented on Mn-lono's statement after appearing In ft debate last night with Heywood the latter wnaA candidate for Governor. Arthur Oarfleld Hays, many Broun, Hays supporting Hoosevelt and Broun favoring Norman Thomas, the Socialist candidate: "1 om afraid ho (Malone) Is voting not so much for Hoover as nsnlnst Roosevelt. It Isn't hnrd to understand his personal resentment, since we all know his friendship for Al Hinlth and Jimmy Walker." MAIiO.VK'S ATIITrDE TANGLKS SITUATION Malono's action Is another evidence of the tangled New York stnto political situation. If followed by large number of Walker sympathizers, tho action would result in loss of ninny thousands of voles In New York City for Roosevelt, Senator Robert F. Wngner, and Lieiitennnt-Covernor Herbert II. Lehman. The Republican candidates who would profit by such a shift are Col. William J. Donovan, cnndldate for Governor, and George Medalle, candidate for the Senate. Such ticket scratching will not be uncommon. The New York Sun, a Republican newspaper, has announced its support of Hoover and Lieutenant-Governor Lehman. The Dally News. Independent, has divided Its support between Roosevelt and Donovan. Donovan has made an effective appeal for sup-prut among groups of New York City Democrats. Registration here, however, Is 300,000 above that of X'.i2H, a record year. Democrats see in that a tremendous Tammany - Lehman -O'Brien-Roosevelt, vote, enough to wipe out any upstate Republican plurality. Thirty-six upstate cities generally Republican, so far reported, showed' about 10.000 drop In registration figures. Democrats attributed the decline to a lack of interest in the national ticket. Republicans predicted record vote in rural districts where registrar tion is not required. 4 Roosevelt Shoulder Pat Costs Man $25 ATLANTA, C.a., Oct. 24. UP) It cost V. Z. Turner. Atlanta business man, $25 to pat Franklin D. Roosevelt on the shoulder. As he reached over to greet- the presidential nominee, someone patted him on the hip and a moment later he discovered his wallet containing ROOSEVELT T W 2 SPEECHES Democratic Candidate Will Talk at Atlanta Tonight And Baltimore Tomorrow By F. G. VOSBURGH Associated Press Staff Writer. ATLANTA, Oct. 24. Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt busied himself today with preparation of the last two big speeches of his swing to the West and South. After a welcome yesterday and an automobile trip to Warm Springs, Georgia, whnro ifce spends as much time as possible in the In vigorating waters, the Governor tackled the addresses scheduled for Atlanta tonight and for Baltimore tomorrow evening. It was the first night he had spent off his special train since he started from Albany last Tuesday. The Governor has a speech-manufacturing technique all his own. He accepts and considers suggestions from all who offer them, receiving a flood of memos which an aide, said totals "literally hundreds." They come from advisors and well-wishers, some well-known and lpfluentlal, others humble and obscure. First to go through this material Is Professor Raymond Moley of Columbia University, the Governor's expert economist, but Roose velt usually digs Into the pllo himself, before taking up his pen or calling for a Menographer. FOREIGN' RELATIONS Tho Governor has been giving some special thought to foreign relations and Indications were seen that he would discuss that subject before the end of the trip. Yesterday he said to a welcoming crowd of his neighbors at Warm Springs, "only two weeks more and then I'll he back." It was explained he expects to rest for a week or ten days at Warm Springs after election. Georgians, who call him an adopted son cf their state, hulled him along tho 60-mile drive which has been named In his honor the "Franklin IJ. Roosevelt Highway." On his arrival In Atlanta in the morning, he told tho smiling, shouting crowd, "I'm not going to talk politics because it's Sunday, anyway I don't ha,ve to talk politics In Georgia." MRS. HOOSEVELT LEAVES Jjrs. Roosevelt left the party heVe toj return by airplane to Now Yotfk to resume her achoolteach-Ing duties. Ahead of the Governor today were a motor trip around tfie city, parade, conferences with Democratic leaders assembled here, the address at 9:15 p. m., C. S. T., at Atlanta Auditorium and finally departure nt 10:30 p. ni., for Baltimore by way of Raleigh and Richmond, where brief stops are planned. Senators Byrnes of South Carolina and Plttman of Nevada are traveling wllh the Roosevelt party, the former planning to stump Delaware, New Jersey and Rhode Island In behalf of the Roosevelt candidacy. Mussolini Calls On U. S. to Cancel or Reduce War Debts (Continued From Page I.) trate the attention of France on tomorrow's session of tho chamber of deputies, where the entire debt question Is expected to be aired. Interpellations on the debt qucs-$20,000,000 in Interest on the debt to the United States are expected to be deposited in the chamber. Opinion as expressed in nutho-ratlve quarters appears to be divided Into three categories here: 1 That France should make no payment of the December interest because It would servo as a dangerous precedent and create the belief that the entire' debt will be paid. O That the payment due In Pe- cemher should be made with the reservation that this payment he taken into account when the debt Is finally adjusted. O That negotiations regarding debts between the United States and France should be hurried immediately after the American elections on November 8 with the hope that the problem' would be solved before the date the Inter-eat Is due, December IB. French opinion recognizes that the problem is complicated by the so-called "commercial debt" due on war stock purchases a debt which is linked to the so-called "political debt," hut which France accepts must be paid. Meanwhile, Premier Fxlnonrd Herriot also was giving his attention to the disarmament problem. En route from Lenz, where lie urged world eaee, the premier Inst night siild he was confident Europe Mould evolve a system of security ngnlnst war. Speaking briefly at Arras, M. Herriot said the difficulties of the external situation should not be exaggerated. "We will succeed In surmounting these difficulties," he said. "I ask you to have confidence In our will to organize peace based on disarmament through security" CAR CONDUCTOR ROBBER SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 24.

A moment after he had been sentenced to life imprisonment for murder, Domlnick Stanza., 34, attempted suicide today in the courtroom of Superior Judge Louis H. Ward. As he stood before the bench, Stanza whipped an Improvised noose from his pocket, slipped it over his head and fastened the rope to a brass railing In front of the clerk's desk. He was choking when Bailiff Thomas Lbftus and Police Inspector Harry Husted reached him and fought desperately against iholr attempts to prevent him from strangling himself. Stanza was convicted by a jury last Thursday night on a charge of first degree murder growing out of the slaying of Cordon George, 87, of 2207 Seventeenth Avenue, on March 2, last. Tho .jury recommended life imprisonment. SHOT TO DEATH George was found shot to death In the plant of the Stauffer Chemical Company, of which he was superintendent, at 161 Utah Street. He was a nephew of the late F. M. Smith, famous California pioneer and horax magnate of Oakland. Suspicion turned to Stanza, a discharged employee, and a search vvns launched for him. Several weeks later he wa arrested. Today, accompanied by Nate Coghlan, his attorney, he appeared before Judge Ward for sentence and stood quietly beside Coghlan before the bench while judgment was pronounced. Coghlan gave notice of appeal and started to walk from the courtroom. Hut Stanza remained In the dock, arguing with. Judge Ward. "Tuke this man from the courtroom," the Judge ordered. But no sooner had he spoken than Stanza pulled out tho noose and tried to strangle himself. COURT IN TURMOIL The courtroom was thrown into a turmoil as the spectators shouted, rose from their scats and started to run from the room. Judge Ward rose from his chair and leaned over the bench as Loftus and Husted grappled with Stanza, who lushed at thorn with fists and feet, whllo they fought to loosen the nooso about his neck. Finally the officers subdued the would-be suicide, removed the noose, and manacled his hands he-hind his hack. Ho was taken back to the county Jail and Superintendent Dennis Hansen announced ho would be removed immediately to San Quentln to be held pending the outcome of his appeal.

PROGRESSIVE REPUBLICANS FOR HOOVER Maneuvers of Johnson More Than Offset hy Mohiliza-tion of President's Aides By ANTHONY F. MOITORET Progressive Republicans of California, responding to the challenge to their loyalty contained in Senator Hiram W. Johnson's latest bolt from the party, today began mobilizing for active aid In the campaign to re-elect President Hoover, and thereby offset the maneuvers of their former leader In backing the candidacy of Gov-ernnr Roosevelt. Under the leadership of Chester Rnwell, who was one of Johnson's, associates in the prngressj vo wins of the Republican party in the past, the loyal Republican progressives have organized the California Hoover Progressive Club. It will work as an auxiliary to and in cooperation with the Republican State Central Committee, and serve to counteract the Johnson-Roosevelt sponsored Progressive Republican Roosevelt League. Vice-presidents of the pew Hoover organization are Irving Martin, Stockton; Rex B. Goodcell, Los Angeles; M. B. Harris, Fresno; H. C. Nelson, Eureka, and Mrs. 8an born Young, Los Gatos. CHAIRMEN CHOSEN Six chairmen have been named for six California congressional districts and the work of organizing Johnson's former followers In these districts will go forward immediately. District chairmen already named are Ralph Rull, Eureka, No. 1; Ellis Franklin, Colfax, No. 2;. Mrs. Lester Hinsdale, Sacramento, No. 3; Claude Fellows, Kan Francisco, No,, 4; T.,M Wright, San Jose, No. 8; L. L. Dennett, Modesto, No. 9. Among the policies of President Hoover which the committee says should commend the President to every California progressive are his advocacy of a high wage scale, his efforts to secure an increase of jobs and their wider spread, his continued support of measures tending to preserve American standards of living and his opposition to tariff policies Intended to put American labor into direct competition with cheap foreign labor, and the social aspects of his reconstruction, finance mid home loan programs. HFRLJBEING FIRST "The essence of progresslvlsm Is Interest In the individual well-being of the masses of people," said a statement issued by the club today. "At the present time such Interest best can be manifested in supporting those candidates whose election offers the greatest, assurance of early recovery from the great economic storm that has swept the entire world. "After port has been reached' varying theories of navigation can be debated at will. At the present time we believe it Is the duty of progressives to support the captain who has shown skill In handling the vessel when the tempest, was at Its worst and who now is very evidently bringing the ship safely into port." Charles C. Teague of Santa Paula, former member of the Federal Farm Hoard, today issued a warning to the farmer against being made a pawn of the Democrats in the present campaign-. FALSE PROMISES BARER "It's about time the Hhnm was torn from the false agricultural promises of the Democrats," said Teague. "In the first place, the Democratic, candidate for President has broadly hinted that he'll have the tariff changed in order 'to bring about tho equality of protection between the agriculturist and industry.' This, on the surface, sounds fine, but just what would it mean0 Simply this: Greater distress for the A.merican farmer. "Over 1)0 per cent and in the ense of many products, more than 93 per cent of the American farmer's production is sold right here In this country to American consumers. Most of the customers are located In the large industrial centers and cities. Tear down the industrial protective tariff rates, and inevitably more foreign-made goods would be consumed in these very centers. The farmer is selling almost his entire output right here at home, so let's let well enough alone." Three radio speeches for the Hoover-Curtis ticket were scheduled for this evening. E. F. Hut-ton, San Francisco business man, will speak between 5:30 and (! o'clock over station KGO. Former Lieutenant Governor H. L. Carna-han will talk over KFRC between 8:15 and 8:30 o'clock. Mark L. Requa, Republican national committeeman, will broadcast over KNX from 9:15 to 9:30 p. m.
