J'UESDAY.gcTnRF.R 18, 1932 Evidence of Dissatisfaction Wilri Both Major Parties Is Apparent. BY RAYMOND CLAPPER fnlled Prt*s Slaff Correspondent (Copyright, 1932, by United Press) NEW YORK, Oct. 17. (UP)—The prospect of a large vote for Nor- Eiun Tr.omas, the Socialist candidate for president, Is rejxjrled in EOme states In the United Press national political survey. This is regarded in part as a protest fle"lnsl ' ne ' wo old parties, In part as a general expression ol dissatisfaction will, i!ie economic situation, and in part the d?slre of a new generation to build a new major party. Many .Thomas supporters regard the Republican and Democratic parties as two wings of the same economic school. They believe a new political vehicle is necessary to espouse policies which now find little place m the Kepub Hcan party of Herbert, Hoover, Cal 'vin CooJidge, Charles G. Ua«'es and ;, Ogderi Mills or in (he Democratic party of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Albert C. Ritchie, O\ven D. Young and John W. Davis. May Hurt Roosevelt Hov; widespread this feeling i; will not be known until election Some "protest votes" are exceptionally voluble in advertising their attitude, but others for various rea sons are outwardly silent. Some reports In'the United Press political survey siioived sentiment for Norman Thomas in unexpected places. One source reported thai In New York stale "an Oneida county farmer said a lot of farm-, ers, both Republican and Democratic, were going to vole for Tt-om- «s." A similar report came frota anotlier western New York locality. Some of those at national Democratic headquarters here fear that In close; states the Thomas "protest vote" may seriously endanger Roosevelt. On« upstate source reports: "Several Liberals—not Socialists—have said that they would like to vote for Thomas as a protest but won't, as they fear a large protest vole o! this kind would allow Hoover lo win." In Massachusetts some industrial workers are talking Thomas due tc the fact that because of the earlier Hoosevelt-Smtth coolness, they refused U) support the Democratic candidate. This may be ' changed to some extent by Smith's forth- i famine speaking trip into New England. "In industrial' centers, such a.' Lawrence; there is. I am-informed BO much of dissatisfaction with Roosevelt that many Democrats arc fald to look favorably on the candidacy of .Norman Thomas," onf report stated. "On the other hand many of -these mill workers arr Irish-Catholics -and not regarded likely that they, will actually vote for .Thomas election day But Thomas will probably get a fairly decent vote in Massachusetts, any was'," Some political experts estimate that on the basis of the Literary Digest poll. Thomas may receive between 2,000,000 and 3,000,000 votes, lie drew 267.420 votes in 1923 aiu William Z. Foster, of the Workers party, received 43,770. Foster is~ f. candidate again this year but thc Lllerary Digest poll .shows him tc be receiving a negligible vote. He represents the communist or extreme left. and. standing for much the same thing as Russian Soviel leaders. Thomas Is a former Presbyterian minister, a cultured, gentlemanly, intellectual person. Believing In an "evolutionary socialism" he appeals to calm reason rather than the mere surfac" emotions. His "easy step' 1 theories cause him to be violently hated by the extreme left, wingers. Some com pare him with Ramsay MacDon . aid, the British Labor party prim. J mlnisfe- whose earlier career In 1. some respects was like that or ' Thomas. Thomas believes in the long run Doth parties are branches of the same economic tree and that the o d Idea of independent voters tc Piay one party against the otfte °nly leads the voter around in a circle. The Thomas ylen- is that orL" rCaI cha "B c In the existinc joer, a third party must be built "15" Ut . tle lo ch °ose from be President Hoover and Gov- Roosevelt. In the Literary Di- PW.

Byrd and Herschel Collins were fined $50 for illegal posseision of intoxicating liquor. The fines assessed were Hie minimum for the olfcnse.
