He had been suffering from intestinal grippe. > He began his congressional career In 1916 and in December 1982, In» troducfcd a 4600-word resolution In the House, demanding the impeachment of Hoover for "high crimes and misdemeanors." The resolution * charged the President with falling to uphold a congressional mandate Against war debt cancellation, with endeavoring to "nullify" the debt contracts, with bringing about the Hoover moratorium, and with indulging in "regent conservations" with "international bankers." It was tabled, 861 to 8. He of' » fered it a month later 'and It was defeated, 342 to 11. The Republican steering committee took away his banking committee membership, and McJTadden declined lesser posts offered him. * MoFadden put the issue to voters in his district, who returned him to Congress in 1932 by a big majority. • He.was one of the first to attack the new deal. In 1934, he won the Republican nomination easily again, but a Democrat defeated him. 4«» CoL Knox Paints • i Gloomy Picture (United Prcis Leased Wire) f PITTSBURGH, Oct. 2. —Frank Knox, Republican 'vice-presidential candidate, came to Pittsburgh lost night for a "rendezvous" with Pennsylvania to reiterate his charge that "no life insurance policy IB secure no savings account safe."

(United Pros Leased Wire) 2. — Some* ^ thing has happened to tho great seal of tho state of California. Not only something, but lots of j things.^ ! State officials have made the startling discovery that California's great seal, which has been used to validate hundreds of thousands of official documents, Is only a poor imitation of the great seal that was adopted in 1849 and readoptcd in 1868. Among other things, tho bear that appears on the soal at tho foot of tho Goddess Minerva, has been a most active grizzly—changing his posture so many tlmei} that he could only be termed a very restless sort of bear. Fleas, maybe. Originally, the bear was crouching at the foet of tho woman. But since 1849 tho bear has been doing strange things as shown by the various official seals used by the secretary of state's office. It. has been asleep. Tt has been chasing its tall. It has been standing up. I It ban been eating grapes, hay, j pears, apples and sheaves of grain. at tho miner down by the river who j has been holding a pick nloft for 87 j years without striking a blow. | Tho background of the seal also luis changed, with tho river having been broadened, an island has appeared and tho American river can- j yon has widened and tho mountains j are flutter than they formerly were, j Indicative of the changes, souvenir documents distributed by Jordan bear these words: "At Minerva's feet, crouches a grizzly bear, feeding upon the clusters from a grapevine." At tho top of the document is printed a replica of tho Great Seal showing the bear sound asleep, Us j snout buried In Its paws. j On the gold seal superimposed upon the document, the bear Is standing up, looking to see 1C tho sailboats are coming In on time. No one seems to know why.
