sto " Issue tedie's Duel Proposal Jesperate Move" Says Anti-Long- Man NEW ORLEANsT£n".-~(^)-A proposal by Judge Richard W. Lcche, ad- rmmstrailon candidate for governor. J n nt his opponent. Congressmnn Cleveland Dear and himself engage in n pistol duel, was rejected by the so- called "homo-rule" candidate Thurs- doy. Representative Dear said the challenge was amusing, but would "sottlt .i nothing,", and was advanced as a || 'Srhoko serene to obscure the issue." In a speech at Winnsboro Tuesday Judge Lcche charged that Dear mid his supporters were "Inciting riots" by declaring "red blooded Louislanans would see that the votes arc counted fairly" in the January 21 Democratic primary. ; It any blood is lo bo shed, Judge Leche said, il should be thai only of I the principal candidates. He suggested ; the matter could be settled In a duel with .44 caliber pistols in the hands of I Dear and himself. ! "I have read judge Leche's slate- re.ment 'lo shool it out' with mingled j I] feeling of amusement and contempt," •' Dear .said. ' "I have no fear of Lccho or any of •{his professional-gunmen, but it would P, be ridiculous for two gubernatorial V candidates^ engage in n pistol duel j thinking they were settling by doing tf so the fighl the people of this stale arc l|maj|j|g against a corrupt polilicnl ma- fc; '"Hie killing of either of us would |!sfeltle nothing, but would aggravate [the high tension of the citizenship and Iwould bring on bloodshed. J| "The people of this stale are arous- lled as never before over the facl that liat the approaching election Judge I Leche and the state machine are not I willing to give both sides equal rupre- I sentation at the palls.

The tola! tally which appears in the current issue of the magazine is divided 36,622 voles In supporl of Roosevelt's policies to 472,698 opposed to them. The present percentage of 57.6!) iigainst ihe New Deal compares with last week's percentage of 57.24. A previous poll on the popularity of the New Deal which was conducted by Tile Literary Digest in the spring of 1934 showed 61.15 per cent of the poll voters then in favor of the Pres- idenl's policies. The twenly-lhrec stales which are shown registering oppositon to Ihe Administration's policies represent 265 Electoral College votes, one less than a majority, while the eleven states indicated favoring the New Deal to date have » total of 128 votes in an Electoral College balloting. The fourteen stales from which no count is yet reported in the poll represent 138 votes.
