At ill, ho went m the public pay roll as elcik in the ofiice of the New York commissioner of jurors. Shortly afterward, he met and began courting Catherine Dunn, the daughter of a modeiately prosperous ship's chandler. Smith was earning $7j a month when lie married Miss lJunn.

Families were divided on the issue, and religious feeling hit a i'over pitch. Al Smith was a devout Catholic. Smith carried only eight states. Surveying the wreckage, Smith saw little remaining except the political and personal friendship of such influential supporters as ihe luuu who had nominated him twice—Franklin D. Roosevelt. ' Smith reorganized the Democratic national committee and was making strides in the 19^:i campaign when he realized that Mr. Kuosevell was traveling a separate road. The I'JSa Democratic convention in Chicago made everything clear. Smith arrived with a scattering of support and instantly assumed leadership of the "Slop Roosevelt" movement. Smith's cluture forced a nightlong session of iho convention which remained deadlocked until the following day when William (J. McAUuo steered California's votes to Kuuscvclt. Smith left the convention, and his departure presayed his action in 1U36 when he joined a coalition of iveallliy Democrats in tlio American Liberty League to stop Roosevelt. He ignored the Democrutio national convention that year, supported Alfred M. Laindon, Republican nominee. Smith became president of the corporation which built the Empire State building, and he moved into an office in the tower, far above the sidewalks of New York, but still within view of Oliver street, where he got his start. and the Churchill Lists Four Nazi War Criminals LOXDOX, Out. 4.
