At this early stasr of the political mutest th" bitter feeling already approaches that of the final week before election. Republicans find comfort in the fact thai in the Presi- d pin's first political address he found it necessary to answer Dewey on several points — notably the charge that lie was an indispensable man, that the administration intended to retard discharge of war veterans, that the, Roosevelt admin- is! ration was responsible for depression. And it was noted, too, that the President in his speech resurrected the "Xew Deal. 1 ' a descriptive phrase which he told press conference listen CM s last winter had been out-grown and out-moded.

Cotton in Xew York and all grains in Chicago, Kansas City and .Minneapolis skyrocketed in price on disclosure that the War Food A dm in is (nit ion plans acquisition of tiio entire 1U-M wheat and cotton crops at full parity prices.

In the stock market interest in rail equipments was stimulated by reports the French government will seek rail equipment here in the amount of $200,000,000. This talk followed announcement late last week that the Mexican government plans a $54,000,000 modernization program on its railroads and reports of a wide-scale buying program being developed by South American countries.
