-A HUGE FIRST HOUR IN STOCK-MARKET Brokers Loaded With Orders Over the Two-day Holiday —Tired Clerks Obtain but Brief Rest. By RLMKIt C. WAI,7KR, II. 1*. rimmolnl Killlor. NEW YORK, Nov. 4.-Huge blocks of stock wern poured into the exchange at the opening cf trading today nfter throe days of inactivity. A scnsalionnl first hour followed, and It wns predicted the ilny's tovirmwer would break all records. Telegraph wires won; li^pt up by the various brokerage hnnsrs during the shutdown of thn exchange. Over these wires, by mull utid !>y telephone, ori'.ers have been coining In. Brokers said they were so lomlo'l with orders that It prnlmhly would hn Impossible to execute (ill nf them by 11. o'clock today. Tho Stock Kxolinnge fnces a real e.rl.iln, but In rontrnst to lust week's brcnk, it was said the loud will bn on the upsldo. Tired clerks had a brlnf rest l.nst night, :i1thoui;h they hurl to work late yesterday. All the stocks trnilcil last week hava been ule.'irrd, but certificated have bnen ilnlnycil dun to the physical Impossibility of making new certl/lenU'H for tho millions of shares changing hnndB. TJm miichlncry of tho exchange is meeting the greatest test of Its history. Snturdny «nd Sunday the brokers were busy. The stutlsllcliina Wcro working night anil (lay. Saturday they compiled the brokerage loan total for the month of October. This total showed a shrinkage of moro than $2,400,000,000, the largest In history, placing the loans at a figure, where they were just a year ago. This enormous reduction In borrowings was seen na a ImiliHh £nclnr. Then, too, tho Street expected further increases In dividends to be announced Hhortly by big hviHiticsM flnris whose earnings have been high t'-'i year. After today, thn market will meet its real test. Tho Kxelmnge will clnsu on election Uay. After that It was expected that mnny would tnlie pro/Us, and that dealings might slacken In volume. The view fur thu remainder of the year was for a slowing down with prices stabilizing themselves around levels reached Inot week. THE PEOPLE'S FORUM Whatever views lire cxprcnBcd In thin column nrcj pnrnniinl for which the ALTOONA MIRROll IH not rp.iponslble. LET'S HAVK TUB LOAN. Editor of the Altoona Mirror—It always makes me wince when I see that over-used term "tomfoolery" used in connection with the public nchooln and tho school board. Furthermore, I get righteously Indignant! In this free land of ouro each person bus a right to his or her Individual opinion, and I wouldn't deny anyone the right to express them; but H. C. N.'s tirade In Thursday's Ufsue of Tho Mirror is decidedly repulsive to me. If I failed to comment on a few ot hl« high points, 1 would feel that I-was shirking a duty.

The throe R'H are real an education, but thcro essentials In aru other things that might be learned In order a well-rounded-out educa- I think the public schoolo • to obtain tlon; and furnish these. H, C. N, mentions as superfluities: Getting out ot bed; . what to havo for breakfast and lunch, and how to cook same; the kind of toothbrush to use and what-not. I comment on only one of Tho first, how to get nut of bed.) Wu havo always been accused (by some one), when developing a grouch, that we have "gotten out of bed on tho wrong Bide." It might be well lo tench the young Just this thing. I charge H. C. N. with 1 an error In his manner of getting out . of bed whon^he wrote his "npplennueo and plums." Now to teach these extras, as I use It, wouldn't neccBHltiito a loan; 'the law ren.ulreH every child of certain ago to attend Hchool, and the mere fact that thcy'ru taught Home extras besides the three R's wouldn't cause tho school board to ask for a loan; surely nut I ' Tho question arises In my mind whether H. C. N. IH really a patron of the public schools I He seems HO adver/ic to them. Tho ones who destroy the playground equipment arc not friends of the public schuoln, and (mould fall Into the hands of tho pollen. These Hume youngstero who destroy property while their parents urn autolng, us H. C. N. suys, would ilii- Btroy the sumo property wuro their parents at homo; It's simply bred Into uomo people. Really these things have nothing to dn with asking for it limn fur the Altoona school district since the police are paid from tho city's fuiuls; then why knock on a UUtu uxlrn cihir.nVUm on the ground that many of thu pupil.s may never mnke use uf it'.' It iluemi't hurt them to havu It,' uuil if they can get it ut tho same price us thu thr,:o IVa, why not let 'em hnvu I IV 1 feel sorry for the pupils uf i'liilndclphln whom H. C. N. cites as ^Imving their properties comu under thu Uuiuinur, ar- peoplo In any section, in fuel, but the school properties concern vnslly mum people than the coinpitrnlively few people whosu individual properties uru involved. I'm not one of thosi: who would be termed u uuccessful (jcimin, but 1 never fail to vote for a school loan, neither do I beef ubnul paying necessary school tnxes; though tho payment ' of gurne Is iicceswnrily ddityril for some time. There are graver reusunu than tuxes or luiuis why properties 1 come under the imimnrr. Mayhu H. ' C, N. could llml i'llucttiioaul facilltlou ' more to tils liking uutslde tho publlu schools.

Smoot's resolution follows: "Resolved, Tat the senate disapprove the employment, as a clerk to a senator or committee of the senate, of any persons, who at any time during his service, as -such clerk, has been, or is employed, by any individual, partnership, corporation or association engaged in the manufacture, production or importation of articles affected by tariff legislation, or by any association or group of such manufacturer producers or 1 Importers." The Smoot resolution was defeated by a vote of 44 to 32. A second resolution by Senator Edge, Republican, New Jersey, eliminating certain features of the Norris resolution, and stating that nothing In the resolution could "impugn the motives of the senator from Connecticut as Improper or dishonorable" was defeated 43 to 34. gingham arose immediately aftev Se'nator Norris, Republican, Nebraska, had brought the condemnatory resolution before the senate sjrid rend Ma statement. He took tho position that President Hoover's maasnge to congress recommended changes in industrial tariff rates for manufacturers who were aufCerlng from foreign competition. He said he employed Eyan- non merely to ilnd out what Connecticut Industries came within this category. "Nothing dishonorable or disreputable was attempted," he said. "I may have been at fault, but my motives were based on a wholehearted zeal for a protective tariff and for tha protection of my constituents in Connecticut." "No senator is criticised if he chooses to place members of his family on the government pay-roll as clerks," BUig- liam asserted. "No senator is charged with nepotism if he hires his cousins, sons or daughters as his clerk or secretary, even if, he does nothing directly foi the government. ' 'The wife of a clerk may be employed even if she does nothing more than keep her husband happy. According to business ethics these things might be regarded with askance." A senator himself la the sole judge of his own ethics,, as far as employment of his clerks is concerned, the Connecticut senator contended. 'Clerks are not employed in the general public interest," he said. Bingham said, he did not profit from tho transaction personally. 'Not one dollar of public money was wasted," he said. "Not one dollar wai employed for any sinister purpose, have not any money Invested In the Connecticut industries which are seeking a higher protective tariff. Not one dollar, of public money ever stuck to my fingers or to Mr. Eyanson's. Nothing in the transaction was dishonorable or corrupt." MAYORALTY FIGHT DRAWING TO CLOSE NEW YORK, Nov. 4.—New York's mayoralty candidates made^their final iid for votes today on the flrst annl- r ersarjr of the fatal shooting of Arnold Rothstein, gambler, whose unsolved death has been one of the issues of he present campaign. The four major candidates, James J. Walker, Democratic incumbent; Florella H. La Guardia, Republican- usion; Norman Thomas, Socialist, -and ttchard E. Enrlght, 'Square-Deal, will make the customary election eve speaking tour tonight of the strategic voting centers of the city. Mayor Walker's recent declaration that his political enemies planned to perpetuate a "diabolical .forgery" on ilectlon eve had not been fulfilled today. Meanwhile, 'taking advantage of the anniversary of the Rothstein shooting 1 , anti-Tammany candidates continued to lurl verbal bombshells at the adminis- iration for failing to solve the murder. Ja Guardia and Enright both allege ;hat the Walker regime is hindering the Investigation into the murder because it was affiliated in some way ivlth the gambler. It was a year ago tonight that^Rothstein, who besides being the nation's greatest gambler, was one of its master criminals, was shot as he sat at a card table in the Park Central hotel. Three days later he died, without, according to the police, revealing the identity of his assailant. As the final hours of the campaign faded away, increasing support for the Socialist candidate became apparent. While even the most hopeful conceded him only the barest chance for election, some persons believed'he might run second to Walker, who was expected to carry the city by a large majority. Betting favors the Democratic candidate at long odds, with La Guardia running secbnd and Thomas, third. Enright, according to most observers, will run a poor fourth. "The Square Deal candidate, who served several years a police commissioner and who has never run for office, has raised his campaign on charges of Tammany corruption and alleged affiliation of. the administration with racketeers.
