FEAR TROUBLE IN MEXICAN ELECTION With Balloting Only Five Days Off Country Is Gripped by Fears of More Bloody Happenings. VASOONCELOS' FRIENDS ARE GROWING RECKLESS .Women Announce Intention of Picketing Polls — Soldiers Are Urged Not to Shoot at People, By A. A.> PASTOU. (Special Cable to Altoona Mirror and Chicago Dally News.) MEXICO CH% Nov. 12.—With the presidential elections five days off, the country Is gripped by fear that bloody } happenings are unavoidable, especially s, the supporters of Joze Vasconcelos re growing restless and reckless. ' Women-, though denied the right to vote, are the most- active partisans of Vasconcelos, many announcing their intention to picket the polls and supervise the' pblling next Sunday. The youth unanimously support Vasconcelos, and students everywhere are holding meetings and staging demonstrations on behalf of their candidate. The Anti-Reelectlonists party, Vasconcelos', has been, distributing leaflets widely among the spldiers, urging them to stand by Vasconcelog, to see that the elections are fair, to disobey their officers in ckse they intend to iise the soldiers for coercive electoral purposes and not to turn their guns upon the people if ordered to do so. . Feeling Is Intense. Sunday's rioting in Mexico City, when, according to the police, Vasconcelos' partisans attacked Pasctml Ortiz Rubio's headuarters while holdinqg demonstration, and freuent clashes be- between opposing factions in various . sections of the country, show the Intense feelings bordering on hatred which prevailed. . < Mexicohasneverbeen.se stirred by a, demonstration, and frequent clashes the present one, which is due to two main, reasons. First, President Calles' memorable message to congress expressing the desire that the people organize strong political parties to conduct democratic elections/ and have institutional administrations instead of dictatorship; second, the fact that previously presidential nominees belonged to the same political groups—revolutionists—and the people remained indifferent to their activities, whereas now Vasconcelos', though of revolutionary, extraction and opposed to Obregon and Calles, is winning the sympathy of the Conservatives, who are In the great majority, Politicians Favor Bubio. \ Ortiz Rubio, a college man, Is sup\ported by the professional politicians kyhose efforts have been directed to /'winning the support of the state administrations and the federal congress which decides the, results of elections. This has led to the belief that the selection of Ortiz • Rubio is an imposition. Vasconcelos, noted thinker, is 'much younger than his opponent and ia supported by the Conservatives merely because of their hatred for everything revolutionary. His bright though short-lived career as secretary of education before his split with Obregon, his South American and United States lecture tours and his books and newspaper contributions won the support of practically every student, and through them the affections of their mothers and sisters all over the country. Fortes Gil is sincerely determined to remain neutral and to Ijave federal employes neutral i nthe elections, and has issued strict orders through Secretary of War General Amaro that the army must refrain from the least participation. Vasconcelos enjoys an enormous popularity, whereas Ortiz Rubio has the suppdrt of the politicians and of several state authorities who are beyond the control of Fortes Gil.

The crowd was so disappointed at not see ing more of the big man's work tha another heavyweight who happened to be among the spectators, offered to go into the ring for three round against Camera. The latter laugh ingly accepted the challenge, anc promised not to hit too hard. He tried his best to pull his punches and make a mere exhibition 'of the affair, but one of his love-taps sent the volunteer Into a comatose condition 'in tha beginning of the second round. Nobody has ever succeeded in hitting Camera hard enough to discover whether be can take as well as he can give.

DRIVERS ADVISED TO KEEP TO RIGHT Myjnjiga, __ PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 12.—-The greatest single cause of automobile accidents in Pennsylvania in the last nine months was the operation of motor vehicles on the wrong side of the road. This disclosure is made by the Keystone Automobile club, in a tabulation of accident causes based on reports received by the bureau of motor vehicles. Fif tjr-seven persons .'lost their lives in such accidents. There were 4,233 non-fatal crashes', making the total from this cause alone 4,290. "We believe it is important to cal attention to this class of accident,' says a statement by the -club, "because the average driver is unaware of the peril he subjects himself to when he deviates from the rule of keeping to the right. Grade crossing and other spectacular accidents usually carry their own moral, but it is safe to say tha^ very few motorists give any thought to the seriousness of violating this cardinal rule of the road. "The law is specific in its require ment. 'Upon all highways of sufficient width,' says the vehicle code 'except upon one way streets, the driver of a vehicle shall drive the same upon the right half of the high way, and shall drive a slow moving vehicle as closely as possible to th< right-hand edge or curb of such high way, unless it is impossible to trave on such side of highway, and excep when overtaking and passing another motor vehicle, subject to the limita tions applicable in overtaking and passing set forth in this act.' "Another clause in the code whicl many motorists ignore, md'which, in cidentally., has bearing on the presen subject, is that requiring vehicles mak ing a right turn to keep> as closely as possible to the right-hand curb. It is the custom of thousands of drivers in making a right turn to swing to the left before entering the intersecting highway. Many accidents have beei due to this practice, Drivers of follow ing vehicles assuming the car aheai was about to turn left, only to dis cover the real nature of the maneuve when too late to stop." STUDENTSlETURN TO SENIOR HIGH (Continued from Page 1.) pulled following the assembly exercises yesterday morning, one in the basement of the Senior High annex and three in the upper floors. At on* of the alarm boxes some student had exercised such ingenuity that the alarm lever was drawn down and then held in that position by wadding paper behind it, causing the alarm to be continuous. Several stories concerning the rush of the students are being related at the school this morning. One is that the city fire alarm was a mistake, the students only intending to sound the fire drill alarm for the school, which would have emptied the building without calling out the city fire apparatus. Another story is that it had been planned for the senior and junior students in the auditorium to walk out when Dr. Robo read the score of Saturday's g-me. It so happened that the score was not read and the use of the city fire alarm system was the result of the original plan's failure. School officials are of the general opinion that the plans for the outbreak were laid over the week-end. One student, however, a member of the football squad of last year but not playing this year, was ordered kept from returning to school by Superintendent R. BJ. Laramy as a result of an altercation with the superintendent during the rush from the building, according to report. Superintendent Laramy stood Inside the Fifteenth street entrance of the building and turned back the tide of students after the general rush had subsided. Not discouraged, however, the student* found exit at the other doors of the building. While four of the student celebrators were arrested on disorderly conduct charges yesterday 'and required to pout security for their appearance at police later in the day, they were discharged when their cases .wart beard COURT PASSES ON LEGAL DOCUMENTS Grist of Motions and Petitions Heard by Judge Patterson at Miscellaneous Session Held at Hollidaysburg.

Wendt, executor of will (By United Press.) LONDON, Nov. 12.—Gales and swift rain swept the south and west coasts of England early today after an all- night storm of great Intensity had battered vessels on the channel and caused many thousands of dollars of damage in coastal and inland cities. There were eleven dead in the storm and the toll of casualties mounted steadily. Many ships and barges were in distress or ashore along the south coast, including the Italian steamship Nlmbo. The crew of twenty-nine men was rescued from the Nlmbo only after a of Joshanna W. Wendt, was directed locket apparatus had been used to get and empowered to deliver deed for property on Crawford avenue, Altoona, to Andrea and Francesca Mns- tropietro for which the sum of $2,100 was paid. Bond in the sum of $4,000 was approved. A subpoena was awarded in the divorce suit of Ella C. Walker vs. Harry E. Walker, returnable the first Monday of January. Desertion is alleged. The Mountain City .Trust company, administrator, c. t. a. of estate of the late Warren H. Moore, was given leave to expose at public sale, property owned and make disposition of same in accordance with will. The report of Andrew J. Riley, master in the divorce suit of Alberta M. Reigh vs. Raymond Relgh, was filed. Divorce was recommended on grounds of desertion. Rule was awarded, returnable at argument court, to show cause why order of support for Margaretta I.

A citation was directed to issue to Donato and Mary Mastantuono, husband and wife, persons in possession of premises 128-30 Fifth avenue, commanding them to show cause why possession should not be delivered to J. Austin' Sullivan, who purchased it at sheriff sale. Rule was granted on William M, and Jessie I.

Rule was awarded, argument court to show cause why award which Oliver Gossitt was directed to pay his divorced wife, Grace Gossitt, should not be cancelled for the reason the three children are all grown up, two married and the other one over 16 and self supporting, GOVERNMENT GETS SENSATIONAL DATA (Continued frorif Page 1.) ,will be sought against the customers •of the ring. If conspiracy indictments cannot be maintained, there will still remain the question of whether the customers, as purchasers from the syndicate can, be prosecuted. There has been some precedent for such prosecution, though authorities hitherto have held that there was little in the laws to warrant such prosecutions. Meantime, a movement has some congress supporters for altering the Volstead law to make tho buyer fully liable. Some maintained the Volstead law already makes such provision. Federal agents are working also to determine whether the steamship company which transported liquor—1,100 gallon's smuggled in as dinner ware and eighty-live cases of earthenware- should be prosecuted. Meantime an investigation has started to learn . whether prohibition or custom agents connived with the bootleg ring. It was learned federal officers believe they were acting as undercover sleuths in tracing the shipments. At least one of the customers of the ring, it was learned, furnished trucks to the liquor smugglers so the whiskey and rare cordials could be transported from his estate to a federal storage depot when • his purchasers were de- tojcted. Carbon copies of orders taken from prominent customers of the rum ring have been seized by the government and held pending determination of -the incs aboard. A lifeboat that put out from New Haven was unable to approach the 3,870 ton ship because of .ho high seas. Hundreds were marooned In their lomes by floods, particularly in Wales where the Rhondda valley suffered leavy damage. The storm was severe throughout the British Isles. The towns of Forth, with 30,000 population, had Trehafod reported the 'lood water from the Rhondda valley was 10 feet deep and damaging shops and houses in the main streets of the iowns. The storm continued early today, increasing the danger to the towns and marooned residents. The Dee, Severn and Wye rivers, as well as the Rhondda, flooded large areas of farm land, drowning many lead of livestock. All Cumberland rivers were reported rising with alarming speed, and coastal shipping and fishing boats were paralyzed. Railroad service was disrupted in many sections, all airplane service was halted last night'and communication lines were damaged. . The wind—which reached a velocity of 72 miles an hour in London and as high as 85 miles in other sections— tossed and battered ships on the channel throughout the night. The Belgian government steamship Jan Breydel, with deventy-two passengers aboard, was forced to anchor near Dunkirk because of rudder trouble. It was lashed by waves 30 feet high all night. Thirty ships were in shelter off Ramsgate, unable to. ride the hurricane seas of the channel. , Lifeboats answered distress calls throughout the night, the Dungeness lifeboat crew being caught in grcal danger while aiding another boat. It was aided by' other lifeboats. The Southern railway steamship Canterbury crashed Into a harbor embankment entering Dover and the passengers were thrown into a panic when the lights went out. A troop train was derailed at Head corn, Kent, and several other trains were derailed, one north of Forth Passengers from Cardiff to Swansea were marooned when floods surrounded the station. Several air liners were forced to make emergy landings The giant British dirigible R-101 mored at Cardlngton, faced a gale o; 83 miles an hour. Tho entire crew was summoned aboard the ship and 1 rode the storm splendidly, the air ministry announced. Officials said the dirigible's performance was outstand' ing in airship history. The 'dangerous situation at Forth was caused by collapse of a wall along the Rhondda river, permitting the water to rush into the low sectloni of the town. The main street-was flooded and houses, shops and the postoffice were partly under water Hundreds of persons were marooriec in the upper stories of their homes most of them in their bedhooms wh*r they were asleep when tho storm started. Scores of houses at Trehafod, a mil- distant, were partly under water anc the rqln continued. The gale increased in force in London between 2 a. m. and 3 a. m. and was severe at dawn. Despite the storm crowds continued to visit the Cenotaph and leave flowers in memory of the war dead until late In the night. Hijndreds of ahop windows were smashed by the wind in various parts of England.

SECTIONS OP BRITISH PRESS QUALIFY OPINION Most Hearty Approval of All Comes From Newspaper* and Political Leaden Throughout Germany, FINANCIAL GOSSIP IN WALL STREET By KT,MKR 0. WALZER, U. I*. Financial Editor. YORK, Nov. 12. —: forth their notes of military triumph the bands of Armistice day recalled to Wall Street Its own battlo of the last few weeks—a battle that has more casualties in ruined fortunes than a major encounter of armies has in lives. Another battle remains to be fought and its outcome will prove whether America is the greatest of countries. That battle is against ease—ease of living, free spending, "easy come, easy go." No nation can survive whoso people soften to luxury. Fortunes canndt be wrought without hard work. The late era of speculation brought vast profits for small investment has gone and' with it tho kejr to ease and luxury. Now comes tlie battle for existence that has proved the tonic ot all national ills In the past. Steady devotion to business light for markets; concentration on making American products the best in the world. It is not America- alone that must fight this battle, but the whole world: for every .nation had gone mad in a speculative way and needed tho stimulus of. failure of the. bull movement to awaken to the real life—the life of • hard work. Hence, there will be added competition. Down through tho ages from the earliest man to the present day the winner has always been the fighter. When a peoples became soft through luxury, it fell before a conquering foe. The man of the stone ago had to fight for his very existence. -His fear of the dark and tho unknown beyond was the same fear that caused the thousands of.' small stockholders to unload their stocks in stampede. When the glaciers came down from the north, fhe poor savage fled in fear. He came back, and fought every incli against other savage tribes and wild animals. He made inventions—stone hammers, later Iron tools, learned to trade with other peoples, built vast empires. But tnrough all tho transition periods the'watchword was "victory." The fighter won the spoils. Great figures sprang up in every generation; not because of natura talent but because of application and constant attention to business Unit outwitted the flank movements of the onemy. Enemies lurked in every corner Just as tliey do .now. Tho blggcm enqmy Just now is tho "euHy money' ogre that must be captured, drawn and quartered. If ho conquers all wll be lost. The flrst battle of tho wat has been fought—the collapse in Htock market values. The next stop Is to reincarnate confidence in business ant that can only bo done by tho hardusl lilnd of work.

Do.nald Garrahan was before the court this morning having been >rought in on an attachment. Last January, Donald was before the court, charged with the larceny of a ring, by Margaret Turner. The ring was valued at tho approximate cost of 1250. Judge Patterson sentenced jarrahnn to pay tho costs and make restitution. Storm Js Abating. DOVER, ENGLAND, Nov. U'.—A Names of persons known to millions of newspaper readers were on the order sheets. The prohibition' administrators for New York and New Jersey, together with the collector of customs at New York, are cooperating with other federal enforcement officers in bringing the case to a climax. Already thirty-eight arrests have been made and thirteen operating places of the alleged rum ring closed. Officials say the bootleg operations have been broken and further action in the case now rests with the prosecuting division of the justice department. gale which lashed the English channel all night and this morning was abating at noon and normal steamship service was resumed. The Belgian steamer Jan Breydel arrived from Ostend fourteen hours late, after having been buffeted at anchorage outside the harbor all night. CRESSON MAN DIES- OF HEART ATTACK William V.

By SAMUEL DASHIBLL, Stuff Correspondent. PARIS, Nov. 12.—Franco-German rapprochement IB taking a popular form these days with the transmission by radio of tho street noises of tho two capitals. . Tho experiment was first made with the crowded Ruo Do La Galnto in Montparnasso, which Is one of the most typically gay and Parisian byways of tho city. The microphone • as carried in and out of cafes, placed before tho little theatres,, at movie entrances and at the ntreet corners where excited students and grisettes, tourists and bearded old settlers all mlnglo in one colorful throng. Tho noises were sent to Frankfurt whence they were diffused throughout Europe, although the experiment was explained by a German who has a sympathetic understanding of tho French capital. Germans heard these ^noises in the popular quarter, n.fter which the mike was carried to a famous cafe near tho Comcdio Francalse, frequented by well known authors and actors. The nolso was explained as follows: "The sounds you aro now hearing come from tho most celebrated French authors and dramatists. Listen to them call the garcons, listen 'to them tap the marble tables to call tho waiters; listen to them laughing and talking, and above all listen to that little clatter of saucers." Tho little saucers, incidentally, indicate tho number of beverages clients havo in French cafes, and to add the bill, the waiter simply adds the numbers or prices printed on the edges of tho saucers. T T.he sidewalks of Paris wore further reproduced when the radio apparatus was curried to the Place de I'Openi, which IH the pulsating heart of tho oity. Traffic noises, probably many subtle and savage oaths from French chauffeurs, horns, brakes, and conversation was diffused over Ge many, while all tho timo the German voice of the Interpreter was Baling, "This is tho Avenue de 1'Opera, here is tho Cufo do la Palx, where all tho world meets, listen to tho crowds, half of whom aro sitting at tables, watching the other half promenade by." The project was conceived by Ernest Schoen, director of tho Radio Poat of Frankfurt. Schoen will transmit other iidlHos soon, especially thoso exotic strains ioid melodies of tho Bal Negrn, which is a negro dance hall. Later e will transmit the Bal Algerrlen. vliere an equally strungo set of noises iccur.

By HENRY T. RUSSELL Staff Correspondent LONDON, Nov. 12.—Europe'* first reaction to President Hoover's Armistice day appeal for immunity of food ships in, 'war times was distinctly; favorable. , There was a tendency on the part of some sections of the British press and among some political leaders,to qualify; approval of the president's proposal but a United Press survey of comment In various countries revealed an en' thusiastio welcome generally. All strata of political opinion. In England as well as other countries, appeared to agree that the world woulji give tho suggestion the most careful consideration. The effect of such •> plan as tho president outlined on thb . necessary cruiser strength of world powers was emphasized by observers, especially in Britain, which must aver keep a watch on distant food and com* • merce routes. ' Germany Much Pleased. Perhaps the most hearty approval came from the press and political lead* crs of Germany, which felt the power of blockade in the World war. The British press, however, applauded th» speech with vigor. Lord Grey of Fallodon, speaking at Birmingham, expressed one attitud* when he said that Britain should "cooperate with the United States in dii- cussing' difficult contentions" of . th« question of freedom of the seas and belligerent rights. "At the samo time it should b.e app v roached from the angle of what has b v een effected 'and the fact that there ts a government of the League of Nations 'and a pact for renunciation of • war," ho said. Paul Loebe, president of the German relchstag, spoke the general attitude of the press of his country in discussing the speech with the United Press correspondent at Berlin. All Know Hardships. • "Every step tending to decrease th« Inhuman horrors of war, especially aa It affects non-combatants and civilians; ' must be hailed by all right-thinking people," Loebe said. "We here know all of tho hardships -of blockade,^ana are especially enthusiastic over President Hoover's plea." ' - ". ' ,< The conservative London Dally telegraph said: . . '•'.'!,' : • "Mr. Hoover offers an idea that goes to the root of the problem of international relationships. The proposition of freedom of the seas is revolutionary and is bound to affect, principally directly, the matter of cruiser strength.'* " The conservative London Times; "Tho suggestion for freedom of food- ship is certain of the most careful and prolonged consideration in Britain. It' augments the omens of success for th» . naval conference illustrated in the successful beginning of parity negotiations between the-United States and Britain and the dissipation of siis- plcion by France and Italy that the two English-speaking nations were endeavoring to settle by themselves the naval affairs of all powers. There is a growing recognition of benefits which ' may accrue through world-wide acceptance of the Kellogg anti-war treaty." $20 EACH 40 MEN'S WOOL SUITS Regular $23 to $35 values—only one and two of a kind but all sizes in the lot.
