t " THE ALTOONA MIRROR-TUESDAY. NOVEMBER .5, NEW YORK CITY GOES TO POLLS By SANDOU S. KI.KtN. Staff Correspondent. NEW YORK, Nov. 5.—The quadrennial task of selecting a mayor faced New York voters today. Choice of four major candidate* was presented. Two ot them, James J. Walker, Democrat ineumnenf, ami Fiorella .La Ouardlu, Repuhlicnn- Fuaion, have already tasted pollticnl victory. The other two, Norman Thomas, Socialist, and Rlchnrd E. Enright," Square Deal, are hopeful of making this election their initial success. Holding office is no new utilisation to Mayor Walker. He served several terms in the state assembly and senate beCore he was chosen to head tho city administration. La Guardla la a congressman. He also served as president of the board of alderman when that position was left vacant by the election of Alfred B. Smith as governor. Thomas lias had considerable political experience, having been a candidate for many important, elective. o£- flces, Including the presidency of the United States, but. has never been successful. . Bnrlght is rtinniiiR for office for tho first time, although he has been a figure In civic politics. He served many years us police commissioner. There was littlu doubt, us the voting machines clicked off more than a million Votes that the morrow would find either Mayor Walker or La Guordla the winner, and tho betting heavily favored Walker. Little chance was conceded by even the most hopeful for either Thomas or Enrlghf. Tho Democrats, backed ol course, by tho highly-geared Tammany machine, were not In tho least backward about predicting victory for tlicir candidates. Conservatively, the Democrats say Walker will retain otTluo by more than 500,000 votes. He gained the office four years ago by a plurality of more than 400,000. The estimated that La Guardla would bo elected by at least 150,000 plurality. Neither Thomas nor Enrlght made any predictions, but both candidates made a desperate bid for votes right up to the deadline. Of the two, nonpartisan observers and even members of the t*o major parties, believe Thomas will poll the heavier yoto. The Walker forces claim victory on the mayors record. They cite his defense of tho 0-cent fare, tho urux of many political battles of the past. The chief planks in tho Democratic platform aro further extension of the city's transit system; decrease of tho basic tax rate, and construction ot new highways and Inlerbor- ough bridges and tunnels. La Ouardia has waged a vituperative campaign. Ho charged tho present administration with being corrupt from tho mayor down to the City hall doorman. Ho alleged that the Walker regime was affiliated in various ways with Arnold Kothstein, murdered gambler, and henco hindered the Investigation Into his slaying. The major planks' In La Guardla's plat- .forrn are the abolition of graft; reorganization of the city government on a more economical basis; adoption of a now housing program and unification of the transit lines. Thomas frankly admitted he could think of no "snappy slogan" for his campaign. Ho said there was no paramount issue except to make New York, city "a decent and beautiful place to live in," Hla campaign was comparatively free of what both Walker and La Guardia called "mud- sllnglng." The Spuare Deal candidate was even more pointed than La Guardla in his charges of 1 corruption against the Walker administration. Bnrlght charged Walker with borrowing money from Sidney J.

The former police commissioner alleged, among other things, that Tammany had aided racketeers in their illegal liquor operations. A close light was predicted for the office of district attorney. Judge Thomas C. T. Grain is the Democratic choice, while Frederic R. Coudert, jr., of a social register family, Is the Republican-Fusion selection. Both have largo fallowings. Candidates for other of/Ices are; for comptroller—Charles W. Berry, D.; Harold G. Aron, R.; for president of tho board of aldermen—Joseph V. McKee, D.; Bird K. Color, R.; sheriff- Thomas M.
