Streamlined Hollowe'en Party Puts New Funjn Old Holiday Progressive Dinner and Reverse Games Provide Modern Zip By MARIAN YOUNG NEA Service Staff Correspondent NE WYORK—Progressive parties (they're becoming populnr again, any- wjiy) lend themselves ndrnirnbly to modernized, streamlined Halloween celebrations. In the first place, the idcn itself is GOP Fights'Little New Deal' in Hot Pennsylvania Duel State Campaign Points to 36 Electoral Votes for 1940 LABOR SPLITS VOTE President Green Favors GOP—State AFL and CIO, Democratic Second in n Scries By The AP Feature Service PHILADELPHIA-High stakes, with no holds barred, have given Pennsylvania's political battle n rough-and- .toumblc tempo. For Republicans, Pennsylvania is a large-scale reclamation project. For four years they have been a minority part in a state whoso Republicanism for decades was taken for granted. If they can reclaim it from the "little New Deal" of Governor George H. Earle, the immediate spoils are 27,000 .sUite jobs. And victory might help win the U6 electoral votes—the second largest block in the country—in 1940. Enrlo seeks the seat of U. S. Senator James J. Davis. Stocky "Puddlcr Jim," long a Republican wheolhorse, L l has no desire to yield. Enrle's Demo-] J crutic ticket mate is Lawyer Charles • Alvin Jones, of Pittsburgh, contest- fti mg f°r the governorship with Arthur ; H. James, superior court judge. Lalior Leaders Differ Senator Davis got the name "Pud- tiler Jim" while working in the steel mills. President Green of AFL indorsed the Davis candidacy, but the str.te AFL, along with CIO, declared for Earle and Jones. Davis has a New Deal voting record stronger than many conservative Democrats in the senate. The issue is not only the New Deal, but whether Earle's version of It has been applied honestly. Republican cries of graft and pourchased legislation have churned up a turmoil, Democrats say those charges are made for political effect. And they hammer at Judge James for holding on to his courtpost while campaigning for the governorship. High on the general staff of the Democratic forces is Senator Joseph Guffey, who appears to have forgiven the Earle faction for dc feating in the primary the slate backed by him and CIO Chieftain John L. Lewis. G. 0. P. Men Long In Office Political experience is heavily on the side of the Republicans. Davis has been elected senator twice. Before that he was secretary of labor for 10 years. Gubernatorial candidate James was a district attorney and lieutenant governor before election to the bench. He's red-haired, a vigorous campaigner, and was an anthracite miner in his youth. James won a landslide primary victory over Gifford Pinchot, twice governor. Earle never was a candidate until he ran for the governorship four years ago. Born and reared in wealth, his diversions were polo and bustard hunting when President Roosevelt started hi.s public career by naming him minister (o Austria in 1933. Earle's running mate Jones never before has been a candadte for an important political office. Tomorrow: Michigan WEATHER.

The odori/.ing product is known as Cal- udorant and gives a distinguishing odor to the gas that is easily detected by the nose. Tho cost of Colodorant equipment and service will be borne entirely by Hie company for the benefit of gas consumers in this community. Gas company engineers pointed out that the odorant Ls used only to permit the detection of leaks. It has no effect on the efficiency of the gas as a fuel and is consumed entirely in burning. When the gas is burned no odor is noticeable and it gives of no nauseating fume. Use of Calodorant, which has a pungent but not unpleasant odor, will not only same the consumers from paying for gas they do not use—that is, gas that escapes through leaky house ppics or improperly adjusted appliances, but will call atenlion to any accumulation of a large amount of gas in a home or any other building. Neither unpleasant nor nauseating, the odorant is harmless but extremely penetrating, affording immediate detection of leaks. Calodorant is a volatile oil which is added to the natural gas in vapor form in just sufficient c/uantity to give it an odor. It is consumed entirely in burning, and does not affect the heating value of the gas at all. Its odor is penetrating but not Convene There Next October — Texas Is Invited ASK GAMBLING PROBE Synod Urges Greater Consideration Be Given to Marriage The Arkansas Synod of the Presbyterian church concluded its 86th a'n- nual meeting here at 2:30 p. m.

Mrs.' Goldstein told the jury that she lived with Karpis for five months before she knew his true identity, and "then did not know what to do about it except to go on as I had done." Meanwhile, Japan Faces Long Job in Really Conquering China By the Associated Ptess The United States' foreign policy, asserted strongly in two separately declarations, Thursday brought worldwide repercussions. One was a sharp note to Japan demanding that "unwarranted interference" with American rights hi China be stopped. The other was President Roosevelt's sptech Wednesday night against "peace by fear." A note to Tokyo, delivered October 6, but disclosed by Washington only Thursday, bluntly called on Japan to observe the "open door" policy in China, and listed a long series of violations • o.n American business and property rights. Three Demands The note made three specific demands: 1. Discontinuance of discrominatory exchange control and other measures discriminatory against American interests' in Japanese-controlled areas of China. 2. Discontinuance of any monopoly or any preference adverse to legitimate American trade and industry in those areas. 3. Discontinuance of interference by Japanese authorities .in China, 'with jAmerican property, and other rights. The note was not published in Tokye; ond, desipte an explicit request for an early reply, a Japanese foreign office spokesman, said no date had been set for responding. In China, the Japanese conquerors of Canton and Hankow pushed ahead 'toward three new objectives: 1. To scatter the Chinese troops retreating from Hankow. 2. To occupy the 685 miles of railroad between the fallen provisional capital and Canton, captured South. China metropolis. 3. To penetrate the areas between the spoke-like columns stretching inland into central China. Roosevelt Hits Persecution of Jews, and Warlike Threats WASHINGTON — (IP) — President Roosevelt, in a virtually unprecedented condemnation of nations which sup- Dress liberty, persecute Jews, and use threats of war to attain national ends, issued a warning Wednesday night that the United States would protect the Western Hemisphere from interference from abroad. Speaking by radio from the oval room of the White House in connection with the New York Herald Tribune's forum on current afafire, Mr. Roosevelt added: "And we affirm our faith that, whatever choice of way of life a people makes, that choice must not threaten the world with the disaster of war. "The impact of such a disaster cannot be confined. It releases a flood- tide of evil emotions fatal to civilized living. That statement applies not to the Western hemisphere aline but to the whole of Europe and Asia and Africa and the islands of the seas." He declared that until foreign nations give the United States something inpre than mere verbal assurances that they desire disarmament—until disarmament discussions are actually started—this country must arm "to meet, with success any application of Cca-ce against us." Lyle Talbot's Burns Not to End His Acting Three Are Acquitted LITTLE ROCK—Federal Judge Trimble directed verdicts of not guilty for John Stover, manager of the Hot Springs airport; Mrs. Al C. Dyer, operator of a boat landing near Hot "-Springs, and Morris Loftis, caretaker at the boat landing in United States District Court late Wednesday, reducing the number of defendants in the Alvin Karpis harboring conspiracy trial to four. The action came late in the afternoon after the government had rested its case. Judge Trimble overruled motions for directed verdicts for the other four defendants—Herbert (Dutch) Akers, former Hot Springs chief of detectives; Joseph Wakelin, former police chief; Cecil Brock, former police lieutenant, and Mrs. Grace Goldstein, Karpis' common law wife. Sam Robinson, lawyer for Stover, and W. Henry Donham, lawyer for Mrs. Dyer and Loftis, moved successfully for release of their clients on the grounds that testimony presented by the government during the eight days of the trial had failed to establish that the three knew that Karpis was a fugitive wanted by the federal government and had failed to show any conspiracy on their part to protect Karpis. In the case of Mrs. Dyer and Loftis, Judge Trimble remarked during a two-hour session in chambers while lawyers argued the motions for directed verdicts, that the government had introduced statements obtained from i hem which would be binding against them but it had failed to present direct testimony in corroboration. He said that previous rulings by higher courts held that no convictions could, be obtained unless such admissions! were supplemented by corroborative testimony. On announcement of the rulings Mrs. Dyer, Loftis and Stover smiled broadly while fritnds rushed to extend congratulations. They retired immediately from the courtroom and walked slowly up the court corridor while friends put their arms around Conquest Just Started SHANGHAI, China-(/P)-With the capture of Hankow and Canton now completed the Japanese conquest of China's great industrial and commer- cialcenters, the Japanese still face years of struggle If they are to pacify China completely. Japanese advices said formal entry into the Wuhan cities—Hankow, Wu- chang and Hanyang—was scheduled for November 3, birthday of the late Japanese Emperor Meiji, grandfather of Emperor Hirohito. With the occupation of Hankow the Japanese have taken over most of the major lines of communication and the richest cities and towns through 13 provinces of about 575,000 square miles and with a population of about 200,000,000 or nearly half the population of China. Foreign observers emphasized that the Japanese penetration has been only along major railways, highways, rivers linking the principal cities, leaving vast interior areas still unoccupied and unconquered. Along these pathways of conquest the zone of Japanese authority has bee nestimated as tonly 30 miles wide.
