MAJOR CAUSES OF VIRGINIA RESULT (Continued from Png« 1.) over the issues presented by the cimdidacy of Alfred K. Smith, the. necessity of holding the Democratic party Intact, for purely local reasons has been Impressed upon the practical Kkle of the political muchlnury in southern Democracy. Only here find there where the anti-Smith groups were Jed by non-poll ticul spokesmen has the 1028 campaign left scars that have not. been healed. Factionalism, of course, will not disappear very soon in national politics but Virginia had demonstrated how difficult It is 1'or the Smith controversy to keep up forever as a means of 'influencing voters. Colncidenlally, the Hoover administration • has assisted tho regular Democrats In the south, first by clumsy handling of the patronage question and discouraging the Republican workers, as well as by amateurishness In deallng'wlth the De Priest episode. The difficulty of carrying water on both shoulders, namely try- Ing to satisfy the negro vote of the north and at the same time appease the -white vole of the south, has been; Illustrated by the use made in the Virginia campaign of the speeches made by K«pres<e.ntalive De Priest himself. , Tho White House professes nowadays no great skill on matters of politics, preferring to stand on the record being made on major questions relating to the social and economic welfare of the country. Just the same It Is not possible to break the solid south without recognizing the political factors at stake. In a, close election In 1932 a few electoral votes from the southern states would help toward a, national victory Just as much as those from a doubtful northern state. Also It was assumed that by reason of the fact that Mr. Hoover carried southern states, he would endeavor to win to his side some of the Democratic senators from tho south. The De Priest episode furnished the excuse for the return to the regular Democratic ranks of many Democratic leaders who hud identified themselves with the anti-Smith movement. Unquestionably the effect of the incident has been exaggerated but on tho other hand its meaning was not lost on tho practical politicians, who satf the use that could be made of It in arousing southern voters. •While the people high up in the Democratic purty In Virginia did not authorize the distribution of literature of tho De Priest episode, the fact of the matter WH.H tlmt when the incident occurred It made a indelible impression on the people of Virginia, many of whom felt that policies of social equality would continue now to divide tho Democrats and Republicans in tho future as they had )n the past. Tho solid south may be broken for economic reasons now and then but with the aid of the Hoover administration and «. few Incidents like the De Priest affair, the regular Democrats as a rule will have no difficulty In keeping control of their states In national und local contests. So far as the Republicans are concerned, their opportunities to win u national .election have never been diminished in the lust generation by the existence of .the solid south. The battle ground I in the 1830 congressional elections, as well us In the 1032 presidential election, will bo in the northern states.

PASSENGERS NEEDED FOR SPECIAL FOOTBALL TRAIN Financial reports submitted at the monthly meeting of the Duncansville school board, held this week, forecast a knotty problem of finances for the board within the next couple of months unless receipts show a very marked increase, as the heavy expense of operating the schools and the large high school tuition payments are causing the balance in the treasury to dwindle rapidly. Reports submitted indicated that thirty-five students from the borough are receiving high school instruction at Hollldaysburg at el cost of $9.85 each per month, or $344.75 for all, an increase over last year of nearly $60. monthly. In addition two are attending the Junior High school at Altoona and two the Morrison Cove Vocational school at Martinsburg at the expense of the Duncansville school district. Operating expenses . of the borough schools are somewhat higher than last year, also. The financial report shows a balance of but $3,550.72 in the general fund. Tax collections for the month yielded $168.93 for the general fund, while tuition payments were but $7.83. Bills amounting to approximately $500 for materials, supplies and tuition were presented and payment authorized. The board voted to become affiliated with the Pennsylvania States School Directors association in keeping abreast of the times In educational affairs and school problems of the present day. Paul C. Snider was given the contract for resurfacing a number of desks in several of the rooms at his bid of 55 cents each, furnishing his own materials. • Professor G. H. Morgart, principal, submitted his report of school work during the second month, which just ended. It showed no serious problems and satisfactory progress in all the grades is being accomplished. Enrollment remained practically the same as during the previous month, several pupils entering to take the place of an equal number leaving. The latter part of the meeting w,as devoted to a general discussion of school matters upon which no official action was necessary. President John T. Tate presided over the meeting, which all members of the board attended. At the office of City Engineer H. J. Baum today there was completed the computation of the cost of paving Fifth street, between Fourth and Twelfth avenues, Juniata, which wag one of the largest contracts of the present season.
