Olympic Girl's Skimpy Swim Decision on Fate Neiars Mayor, Hailed at Albany as 'Our Next Governor, Grins As Roosevelt Ponders (Continued From Page in New York city does not comply with the program favored by the Parmelee intereste, he said.

MAYOR IS GIVEN ROUSING RECEPTION The mayor was given a rousing reception when he strode into the executive chamber. He was 11 minutes early. Hundreds of his loyal supporters, headed by men with whom he sat In the state, legislature years ago, jammed the corridors ana sought to pat him on the back as police struggled to make way. Walker was charged with having accepted "gifts" and gratuities amounting to thousands of dollars, and with being unable to account for approximately si, 000, ooo al leged to have been deposited foj him in the accounts of the missing Russell T. Sherwood, his purported financial secretary.

Governor Roosevelt, whose presi dential rolltical fortunes were to an appreciable extent bound up in whatever decision he might make. formally called upon the mayor at 1:35 p. m. to make his defense. ALL OF PRINCIPALS DRESSED IN BLUE.

Both Walker and his arch-foe, Seabury, were dressed in blue serge suits a more somber touch than Is usual in the dapper New York executive. In strange uniformity, Governor Roosevelt had abandoned his customary white silk to wear blue. "Before proceeding," said the governor, "I think it will simplify matters if I read a statement." He then read from the legisla tive manual those clauses which gave him authority to hear the charges against Walker and, If he feels the evidence warrants, to re move him from his Job. The mayor was as confident, gay, cheerful, apparently, as the day he last won office by a two-to-one vote, and happy in the memory of the greeting he received here. It was a tumultuous, shouting roar that hailed him as the "next governor," and a presidential salute of 21 aerial bombs whose echoes bounced off State-house hill and rolled down the Hudson.

GIVEN HAPPY AND JOYOUS GREETING It was a happy, joyous greeting organized by allies of Tammany hall, but noisy and impressive just the same. It was Jimmie Walker's day. Today was another day. What it had In store for what one writer trailed "the Clara Bow of politics," none knew. What it had In store for the judge, a political candidate who needed every vote, none knew.

Some said Walker would be removed, and thereupon would announce his candidacy for tho governorship in opposition to a candidate favored by Roosevelt. Some said Walker's host of friends, in case of his removal, would desert the head of the Democratic ticket and help swing the state and its electoral votes to Herbert Hoover. He won New York by 600,000 over hla Republican rival. CALLED "OCR, NEXT GOVERNOR" BY TAMMANY These reports were ridiculed by others. But the Tammany crowd In Albany last night hailed Walker as "our next governor." One of the charges among the 15 conclusions Samuel Seabury drew from evidence he procured, was that Mayor Walker received a million or more during his official terms "from beneficent friends," and that the gifts were for the purpose of obtaining official favors.

Others Included the charge'that he failed properly to execute his official duties, that he held stock in a firm awarded a city contract, that he failed to produce complete records for an investigating committee, that he wasn't frank or truthful before that committee, that his conduct in general rendered him unfit to continue in the office of mayor. Congressman Race In Kentucky Close LOUISVILLE, Aug. 11. OP) On the 226 precincts yet to be tabulated today in Louisville depended the fate of candidates who waged neck-and-neck races for ninth place on both Democratic and Republican lists of congress-man-at-large nominees.

OP) American Interests in Mexico today faced a prospect that President Ortiz Rubio may soon be empowered to cancel many long-standing concessions if he desires to do so. Four decisions upholding the right of a president to cancel concessions issued by one of his predecessors have already been handed down by the supreme court.

The four previous decisions have involved concessions on about acres of oil land granted in 1930 by former President Emilio Portes Gil. The concessions are in Vera Cruz and Tamaulipaa and are controlled through intermediaries of the Standard Oil Co.

Nationalists Leaders Split Over Attitude That Will Taken Toward Japanese Br MORRIS J. HARRIS, Associated Press Staff Correspondent. SHANGHAI.

Aug. 11. China wai a nation virtually adrift today. Chiang- Kai-Shek. formr presl-dent and rirtnal eommander-ln.

chief of the army, appeared to be moving toward the rolo of Fascist dictator, favoring a tolerant foreign policy, especially with respect to Manchuria, China's government was at a itandstill. In political circles it was indicated that leaders were urgently attempting to solve the crisis resulting irom me Wane Chlnc-Wel. presiden of executive Tuan, and the banking cabinet. Without warning, Wang Ching-Wel quit last Saturday. He gave as his reason the maladministration of affairs In north China, coupling with it a withering attack upon Chang Hsiao-Liang, erstwhile Manchurlan chieftain now directing affairs about Peiplng, sup-posedly under Nanking's direction.

THREATENS TO RESIGN. Chiang Kai-Shek Instead of assuming the dictatorial role and commanding his one-time subordinates to remain in their respective jobs, telegraphed to Nanking that he, too, would be forced to resign unless various leaders resumed their duties. Chiang Kai-Shek's action precipitated the gravest crisis within the hUtory of the stormy Nanking regime. Today China's government Is at a standstill. Wang Chlng-Wel and other members of the Nanking cabinet are In retirement here.

Chang Hslao-Llang, young Peiplng war lord, said tonight his decision to relinquish his power In the face of criticism by the Nan-' king government remains unchanged. He indicated he would travel abroad and live in France. The United States, he said, is a "rich man' country." and at present he doe not Intend to go there. CONTEST OUTLINED. Stripped to the essentials, the situation is contest between Chiang Kai-Shek and Wang Chlng-Wel.

whoae views are strongly dl- Tergent. Wang want an aggressive attitude toward Japan. He also understood to believe that by such a policy he would make China's military leaders Instruments of the Kuomlntang policy. Instead of dictators to the Chinese government, as they are now. If he achieved the latter aim.

Chiang Kai-Shek probably would beawept away along with the lesser militarists. As far as Chang Hslao-Llang Is concerned, hie non-resistance policy with regard to Japan's acts in Manchuria has embittered a great bloo of Chinese public opinion against Of that feeling. Wang Ching-wel Is the recognized exponent. Wang Chlng-Wel controls the civilian element of the Nanking government, which Includes the powerful Cantonese group, while Chiang Kai-Shek controls the outstanding military figures. MIGHT MEAN CIVIL WAR.

Even though Chiang Kai-Shek presumably would be able by military strength to force Wang Chlng-Wel from authority, he would not dare, in the belief of some observers here, as Wang-would take virtually All the civilian element of the government with him, possibly precipitating another Canton-Nanking civil war. That would mean an independent south China, which in turn would endanger the very life of the Nanking government. If Chang Hsiao-Liang retires, the, Japanese, according to some opinions would be likely to expect the present turmoil In Manchuria and Jebol to slacken, and they might reduce their military activity. On the other hand, others say they believe that if Chang Hsiao-Liang goes out, the Japanese would consider any successor likely to carry on anti-Japanese activities more vigorously, and he Japanese therefor would be likely to take up a vigorous offensive, occupying Jehol and north China as far south at thevYellow river, In which case there would be no successor to Chang Hsiao-Liang.

Aug. 11. (UP) Jimmie Walker, the playboy night time mayor df New York who fights for his right to hold the office today, ia the product of a political system whose creed holds he has a perfect right to accept gifts from his friends. He la a paradox in American politics, product of the tin pan alley, who has done everything the book says politicians should not do, just to "be himself," and yet has such a hold on his followers that accusations hinting at "bribery" have not dimmed his popularity with many of "the old gang." He has shown no respect for what he calls the "high hats." ROOSEVELT "HIGH HAT." And he ranks his judge, Gov. Franklin D.

Roosevelt, a Harvard product, and his accuser, Samuel Seabury, a descendant of Puritans, and members of a ministerial family, among the "high hats." For that matter, the msyer of New York, one of the few men to hold two local party victories over the highly popular Alfred Smith, also has rated the "brown derby" candidate of 1 92 among the "high hate." He has shown what his friends call "nerve" in hot spots. He has shown what hla opponents are pleased to call "brass" or "gall" in the same hot spots. ACCENTED 9240,000 GIFT. He stood accused by Seabury of accepting S24S.000 as a gift from Paul Block, newspaper publisher. Seabury said Block wanted a city favor.

Walker admitted the gift, and explained that Block was an old friend. Block said he started the stock account which provided the money at the suggestion of his own boy, who wondered if the mayor could get along on his salary. (Since raised to Walker admitted receiving bonds from a taxicab stock broker, and a letter of credit from Rodman Wan-amaker. But he indignantly turned down offers to pose for cigarette advertising, collar ads, and other testimonial solicitors. "Improper and undignified," he called.

"Favor my friends? Accept gifts from my friends? Why not?" he has said in effect. "Should I be broad-minded and run around hunting for an enemy Just to do him a favor?" is the Tammany Hall answer he and other followers of the same political creed offer. Al Smith opposed Walker for mayor in 1926, until It was Indicated Jimmy would install a time clock and follow a hard-ehelled straight and narrow. Jimmie did as he pleased, and that waa far from what Al Smith pleased. SHOWS "AL" WHAT'S WHAT.

So when Smith of the "new Tammany," read Walker a lecture In 1929, with Walker almost decided not to seek another term, the mayor went to bat, and won by the most tremendous majority ever given a mayoralty candidate. "Al," he said, "has gone high hat." Yet, Jimmie hustled out of bed in the early morning for that third ballot In Chicago, to east his vote for Alfred K. Smith for the presi dentlal nomination. The song writer mayor picks his own friends. He preferred Jimmie Johnston Madison Square Garden boxing promoter called "the boy bandit," to John J.

Rae kob. He went to meet the ancient Turk who toured this country a few years back, when he was ex pected to lunch with a New York financier. He Is fast on his feet In a battle of wits. When Seabury offered evidence to show that Russell Sherwood, alleged business agent for Walker, drew a quarter million from a brokerage account on a certain day (Aug. 9), Walker piped up from the witness chair: "Why don't you complete the Inference, and make a real scenario.

I left for Europe August 10. I suppose I took tho money with me." What Seabury supposed he didn't say, but he changed the subject. i it More Yachts Than Ever Before in S. WASHINGTON, Aug. 11.

4jr( oatlt Garner Almost Made For gotten Man as Former Secretary Speaks Here By ANTHONY F. MOITORET. The Democratic meeting at the Hotel Leamington last night, called a Roosevelt-Garner rally in ad vance notices, turned out to be a William Glbbs McAdoo rally. Staged by Democrats who fought Franklin D. Roosevelt to a stand still- until their leader suddenly deserted Speaker John N.

Garner on the fourth ballot at Chicago, the gathering put a soft pedal on the partys presidential nominee and almost made his running mate the forgotten man. McAdoo drew an audience that filled the hotel ballroom. Always an interesting Rpeakcr, lie gave his listeners 50 minutes of entertain ment, but advance the causa of Roosevelt and Garner he did not. Former President Woodrow Wil son und even the late Republican President Theodore Roosevelt wore given as much or more praise than the distant relative of the latter the Democrats would put In the White House. The former secretary of the treasury who wants California's Democrats to nominate him for United States senator on August 20 devoted much of his time to attacking President Hoover, but de clared his belief in a protective tariff.

Ho voiced opposition to cancellation of the war debts, but adroitly dodged the prohibition issue. The nearest reference to that question was a declaration that he felt pledged to carry out the Democratic national platform. MRS. DOXOnOK PRESIDES. Mrs.

Charles L. Donohoe, Demo cratic national cotnmitteewoman, presided. In opening the meeting he said the Democrats of California have a rare privilege in the op portunity to vote for McAdoo. Roosevelt was mentioned only once In her remarks and then, nt the close, in connection with the help he might ejepect to If elected, from Senator McAdoo, If nominated and elected. Speaker Garner was overlooked.

Henry H. McPlke, who presented the speaker of the evening, held forth for 3d minutes before giving the party's presidential ticket a tumble. He eulogized McAdoo with much enthusiasm, emphasizing particularly his construction of the McAdoo tunnels under the Hudson river. "We have been having a hell of a time for the last four years," said McAdoo. What the country ounlit to find out, he went on, Is "who Is driving the shebang at Washington." President Hoover wrs criticised as depending too much on commissions to advise him.

"All theso commissions I consider a serious defect of our government," said McAdoo. "One'rea-son Is that they postpone a decision and then render a report designed to relieve responsibility. I think that when we pay the President of the United States 175,000 a year, give him a nice house to live In and servants and have the secret service watch over him ho ouRht to do the Job himself and not appoint commissions to enable him to postpone a decision." BACK RIVAL. The candidate declared there was no issue between him and other aspirants for the Democratic senatorial nomination and Indicated he would support Justus S. Wardell of San Francisco, his chief rival, when he said: "I am enough of a Democrat to support the nominee of the party whoever he may bo." The tariff was described by McAdoo as "the most serious and effective part of our national economic system." He would not be In favor, he added, of destroying the protective tariff system.

The to do, he insisted, was to "chanse its Inequalities." The Democrats, therefore, It given control of the government, should call an International conference on reciprocal trade order to break down tariff barriers and restore foreign irade. "The first thing I would do would be to kick the farm board out of existence," he said in an attack on that body, which he accused of having spent 000 without affording farmers any relief. He likewise attacked the rehabilitation loan policy, charging the "big fellows" are favored. The "big corporations," he said, should be made to paddle their own canoe. 'LET THEM LEARN "I believe in letting them save themselves and learn a lesson," he said.

"I don't find any government that's being paternalistic to me." McAdoo was at his best in dis cussing the foreign debt situation. Having been secretary of the treas ury wheii the loans were made to Europe, he justified them by say ing that they saved American blood. The Kuropcan borrowers had made a solemn pledge to repay the money and he declared they should be held to their bargain. "They've had their debts scaled down on an average 30 per cent and, they've been given 62 years to pay," he said. "Think of it! I'd like to borrow money for 10 years!" McAdoo closed by asking his hearers to swap horses in midstream by switching from "a spavined elephant" to a mule.

The body was burled privately at the rear of the Duncan home. A statement from Mascot Pictures said Rin Tin Tin which has been trained for a year for picture work, gives promise of equaling if not excelling the elder dog as an actor.
