N EW YORK, Dec. 1.—A presidential boom for Thomas L. Dewey was set off today at a ceremony in which the New York district attorney formally entered the list for the Republican nomination. Replying to a declaration by a group -of state party leaders that they were convinced Dewey could carry not only the "pivotal" state of New York "but also the country at large next year against any opponent," Dewey declared: Glad To Make Fiftit "I will be glad to make the fight. "I have confidence in the Republican party, which has always stood for good government and stable business," he said. "Today its responsibility is to reawaken hope and courage in a nation which is driven almost to despair by incompetent government and unstable business." Dewey added that he had "faith in the nation and in its future and in every element of its people." Can Pull Together "Relieved of a hostile and sniping government," Dewey said, "I am convinced that they can again learn to pull together for a happy and united nation." Dewey was interviewed at the opening of "Dewey for president" headquarters in which were gathered Republican leaders from throughout the state. The manifesto, read to Dewey by J. Russell Sprague, Republican chair< man of Nassau county, extended "to all citizens a cordial invitation to join with us" to bring about Dewey's nomination. Won't Invade Michigan Dewey disclosed that he would enter presidential primary elections in some states, which he did not name, but emphasized he would not seek delegations in states where there are other "active and genuine" candidates including his native state of Michigan. "For example," he said, "I certainly will not go into Michigan, for I believe that Senator Vandenberg is entitled to the delegates from his state." Dewey's first public appearance as a candidate will be before the Min nesota Central Republican commit- .tce in Minneapolis Dec. 6. Racket Buster Dewey Officially "Pitches Hat In Ring" Boom Launched By Republicans If Football Player Whose Love Had Grown Cold Dies, Girl Will Be Prosecuted (By Tht Awoeuted P RT COLLINS, Cplo., Dec. 1— , Authorities are' "ready and willing" to prosecute 19-year old Lois Jeanne Vahnorsdel for the campus shooting of Walter (Bud) Lycns, Colorado state college fullback, Deputy District Attorney Winton M. Ault said today. "If Lyons should die, we will file a murder charge," Ault declared. "If he recovers we will make an effort to get him to sign a complaint of assault with intent to kill. "In the event of his recovery, we would consider his cooperation necessary to prosecution of the case." Girl It Held Ault has blamed the shooting on the breakup of a campus romance. Lyons, 21-year-old junior student at the college, has been a patient at a hospital here since the shooting Wednesday, suffering from a severe chest wound. Physicians said it would be Sunday before they could predict whether he would recover. The youth was given a blood transfusion late yesterday and physicians said a second transfusion might be given. Miss Vannorsdel, a sophomore at the college, also is held in the same MISS VANNORSDEL hospital In technical custody. She has been hysterical at times and has been under care of physicians.

Wallace Suggests New Farm Program (By The Associated Press) OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. i. — A v/ "streamlined" processing tax to make New Deal farm programs self- financing was suggested by Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace today in the first address of his midwestcrn farm belt tour. The secretary, speaking before some 2,000 farmers here and over a national radio network, declared there was no assurance that Congress would continue to appropriate funds for the programs. By Narrow Margin "Parity payments for cotton, wheat, tobacco, rice and corn were voted at the last regular session by an extremely narrow margin," he said. If they were not made the effect upon farmers might easily be disastrous .... "Therefore, it is only the part of common sense to make the farm programs self-financing." Among the plans now under discussions, Wallace said, is the so- called "certificate plan." He termed this a "modem version of the processing tax" and declared it had "some obvious advantages." Under this program, certificates equal in value to a certain number of cents a pound or bushel would be distributed among farmers cooperating with the federal government. Would Save Time Processors would be required to buy the certificates at the time the farmer sold his crop, thus permitting him to obtain his cash benefits much quicker than under the old parity programs. Wallace, who plans to speak In Chicago. St. Paul and Dss Moines before returning to Washington made no mention of politics in his address.

State Witnesses Appear Against Maury Maverick Santone's Mayor Is On Trial On Charges Of Paying Poll Taxes For Garment Workers By HARRELL E. LEE Associated Press Staff Writer S AN ANTONIO, Dec. 1—One witness against Mayor Maury Maverick testified today that $250 in silver half-dollars was delivered to headquarters of a garment workers' union here last January 28 and another witness said he was informed the money was to be used "to help pay poll taxes." Maverick, former congressman, is on trial on the first of five felony charges alleging that he paid poll taxes of members of the San Antonio unit of the International Ladies Garment Workers union. The poll tax paying deadline for the city election at which Maverick was chosen mayor was last February 1. Did Not Know Roscoe Cahill, jr., who was active in behalf of Maverick in the mayor's race, told the jury that Dick Jeffery, one of Maverick's secretaries, informed him the $250 was intended to be used to help pay poll taxes. Miss Rebecca Taylor, manager of the San Antonio branch of the union and the first state witness, had testified that $250 was brought to the union office in 50-cent pieces but she did not know whether any of it was used to purchase $1.50 poll taxes. She added that she knew about $200 of the sum was spent for other purposes. Contributions Promised Miss Taylor testified that David Dubinsky. of New York, international president of the union, told her over long distance telephone January 27 that international headquarters would contribute to Maverick's campaign. "He said he admitted Mr. Maverick's efforts in Congress in behalf of workers," Miss Taylor asserted, "and we should help Mr. Maverick In every way possible." The witness said she "understood" the 500 fifty-cent pieces were part of the campaign contribution from- the union office in New York. To Be Long: Trial Prosecution attorneys said they probably would complete their direct t es t i m o ny tomorrow. Indications were, however, that the trial would last until next Tuesday or Wednesday.

Scale of Miles ESTONIA Lubbock Teacher Introduces New Pension Plan Dan Powers Proposes Separate Financing For Retirement; Irvin Will Be Candidate 'Bt Tb* Associated Press) S AN ANTONIO, Dec. 1.—Separate financing of teacher retirement from other social security programs proposed in a resolution from the floor by Dan W. Powers of Lubbock disrupted the smoothly-running activities of the house of delegates of the Texas State Teachers association Friday. The resolution was defeated after a lengthy debate. Previously the delegates had elected by acclamation Charles H. Tennyson of Wichita Falls as president. Questionnaire Rapped The report of the resolutions committee which contained no mention of the retirement questions met with no opposition. The fight to table Powers' motion was led by H. L. Mills of Houston, chairman «f the Teacher Retirement board. Condemning the questionnaire sent recently to teachers tying in the retirement fund with old age pensions and other social security measures, Powers declared that the "old-age pension was the most treacherous political question in Texas since prohibition." Arguments Fly With the arguments pro and con coming thick and fast another session of the delegates was in prospect before the convention concludes its sessions Saturday.
