Landon's attack on the act as a "call to retreat." i* ( Winant, twice Republican gover- , nor of New Hampshire, empha- • sized at the beginning of his ad- 'dress he was speaking "personally, Jr>|», ^private citizen." "VVJnant Insisted "an advance has 'begun—Wind no man has a right to call a halt." He vigorously denied the assertion of "the Republican candidate" In Milwaukee Saturday night that the act Is a "fraud" and a "cruel hoax." Act as Americans, Hoped "Until lost Saturday I had hoped that tho attainment of social security would be ,held high above party politics," Winant said, "I had hoped, too, that we might as Americans— and not as Republicans or Demo- crats—j>ut the program Into effect?, 'discover and amend its shortcomings and go forward toward a larger measure of security for the whole of tho American people." , Ho stressed that "compulsory savings for tho ' working man" were preferable to "the fear of a lack of a job and the fear of old age."

Mil HAILS FOG Pilot's "Worst Enemy Downed by Gasscs From Machine Recently Invented - (United Pret» Leated Wire) SAN FRANCISCO, Oct.. 1.—Fog— aviation's biggest foe—has been conquered, It was reported hero today. This, the most Important development In . aviation since the Invention of the radio beam, was said to have been accomplished In the laboratories of C. n. Pleasant, 44, San Francisco chemist, who spent eight years developing tho "nofog" process. His Invention was tested here over a period of weeks by army engineers and It was claimed that under the most adverse conditions It cleared ground fog on a landing field for a radius of a half a mllo and to a minimum altitude of BOO feet. Even more amazing, It was said that he cleared fog away from the Golden Gate channel over an area of 16 square miles In a witnessed demonstration. Tho apparatus used Is described as being very similar to a small garbage Incinerator, which uses secrot chomlculH that emerge from the fluo In the form of a gray, almost odorless gas. "The released heat, absorbed into the air, creates a dry area which at- tucka and dissipates the fog," he satrl. The apparatus is extromoly simple in appearance and eiistly moved from place to place. It appears to bo little more than a combustion chamber 20 by 22 by 30 inches in elzo and a flue 6 feet in height. • « » Kansas City Thief Not Embarrassed ' (United Prett Leased Wire) , KANSAS CITY.
