NOTES ON MY CUFF 7 HE American people have given their approval of the ''New Deal" promised by Franklin Delano Roosevelt. From Maine to California; from Canada to the Gulf, everywhere, came the voice of , protest against President Hoover's final appeal that the Administration be permitted to carry on. Not since the days of Jcff-: erson in 1804 was there such a terrific electoral vote piled up for a Democratic candidate. In fact, Mr. Roosevelt : received the greatest number of electoral votes ever accorded a president of the United States. We 'all know the power of a smile. We sing "Smiles" at club meetings, and write poetry about the power of a smile, but never before has the American people had it -brought borne to them more forcibly than yesterday that the power of a smile can win the highest office in the land. A determined : citizenry of the U.S.A. stamped their ballot for the candidate who literally smiled his way into the White House. ' Even those who have been the most active against the New York Governor's election, have graciously come forward this morning and seem happy ' in their statements that they are back of Mr. Roosevelt a 100. Franklin Delano Roosevelt is a great American; we hope ' and trust that his election will be a great boon to prosperity and the. re-establishment of confidence. People 'are sick and tired of promises without '. action, and no greater opportunity ever ' fell to man to serve humanity than has come to Mr. Roosevelt. ; ; " What will the" president-el-: .. ect do? What will Mr. Hoover It has been suggested that : the President ask for .the resignation of Secretary of State Stimson, and immediately ap-." point Mr. Roosevelt to that position. . Then he and Mr. Curtis immediately resign as - president and vice-president, which would: automatically make Mr. Roosevelt president. If this were done, the President-elect could start his program of reconstruction im- - mediately, and there would be no farther delays. In California the people have returned to Washington a . great statesman, William Gibbs MsAdoo a diplomat, a 1 thoroughly trained lawyer, a successful business man, a . former member of President Wilson's cabinet. He has a clean record. He will be backed in Congress from this district by , Charles J. Coldcn who is well known for his political experience in Harbor affairs, and who won easily over his op- ; ponent, Chic Henning, pres- ' ent councilman from the Fifteenth District. With conservatives and dry leaders over the state the repeal of the Wright Act is taken as a warning that California . will be in the same chaotic state that Nevada finds itself today. J-, : One more significant outcome of the election in California was the wholesale ; turn-down the Republican party gave their senatorial ' candidate in favor of the Democratic nominee, and also placing the militant and fighting Bob Shuler in third place for United States Senator. ; Portia n no other sinsrle , speaker rolled up so many votes for Mr. Roosevelt as did ' the Fighting Senator Hiram Johnson, who bolted the Republican party for the Dem-ocratic nominee. A very small percentage of Republicans voted a straight ticket, which is indicated in , the enormous vote piled up for Roosevelt and other J)em-' ocratic candidates from Gov- ' rnnra Anwn in' Awmhtvmpn an over me uniiea states. - XVI, n 4ti npntiln ennatf tvlth ' their ballots, no one has anv i right . to "crab" at the out- rnm It In mir wav nf rnwpn. ing, ana wnaiever ine people wills under the ballot system era, we should aoide by that decision by grace, and not ' hold ' out on our unqualified support. .:' : ; Member United EIGHTH YEAR GOLD GREAT-IA, HO ELECTED TO SENATE OVER T.TUBBS, SHULER ' ; State's Support Won Easily by Gov. Roosevelt SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 9. (U.R) Caliofrnia, normally a Republican and in sections a conservative state, went Democratic and progressive with a vengeance today, helping to elect a Democratic President, sending a Democrat to the Senate, and repealing the state dry law. Amazed at Vote , Even the most optimistic Democratic leaders were amazed at the huge majority vote polled by Franklin D. Roosevelt. The state had been listed as "doubtful," and there was a general feeling that California would stand behind her own "son," President Hoover. Californians generally be lieved the swing v to Roosevelt and democracy resulted from a feeling of dissatisfaction over the border' of -.things." Prohibition Stand,, William Gibbs McAdoo,' former Secretary of the Treasury, rode on the crest of the Democratic wave to submerge Tallant Tubbs, young San Francisco rope manufacturer, under a tide of votes. Many Republicans who deserted Tubbs did so, it was felt, because of his intensive fight gainst prohibition. McAdoo was regarded as a "Resub-missidnist."

SACRAMENTO, Nov.. 9. U.R) Freedom for 300 prisoners serving sentences in California State prisons for violation of the Wright Act loomed as a possibility today. LOS ANGELES. Nov. 9. (U.R) Despite repeal of the Wright Prohibition Enforcement Act, unincorporated territory and many cities in Los Angeles county will still have a rigorous anti-liquor law, it was learned today. Deputy County Counsel Claude McFadden revealed that the county board of supervisors in 1921 adopted what was known as the "Little Volstead ordinance,", containing even more rigorous provisions prohibiting not . only liquor traffic , but also purchase or exchange of liquor as a gift. The measure restricts prescription sales to eight ounces. The generally forgotten law apparently had never been enforced, McFadden said. While Al Smith is still the "Happy Warrior," there is a bit of sadness in his smile. . , The repeal of the Wright Act indicates that the people are disgusted with the farce -comedy of liquor enforcement.; The law is not a popular one with the masses, so, they demand, too, a new deal on a law that has not been enforc-ed. - - . ; ": STALIN'S WIFE DIES MOSCOW, Nov. . 9.

J , r ; Recall of Three z Judges Foreseen LOS ANGELES, Nov. 9. (U.R) Recall of three Superior Court Judges was decreed by Los Angeles County voters, according to complete returns from more than half of the county's 3538 precincts today. A commanding majority was piled up by voters favoring the recall of Judges Dailey S. Stafford, Walter Guerin and John L. Fleming, who were alleged to have accepted favors from state receivers for the American Mortgage Company properties. Only a complete reversal from outlying precincts could avert recall action, officials said. In the , races for regular judgeship posts, Walter S. Gates, Judges Isaac Pacht, Clement L. Shinn, Lewis Howell Smith and H. Parker Wood were leading by comfortable to narrow margins. . , Allen Resigns Port Position President Walter B. Allen of the Harbor- Commission today resigned as head of that body and Commissioner F. C. Wiser immediately was elected to succeed him. Commissioner Gerald C. Fitz-Gerald was elected vice-president. In his - letter of resignation, President Allen explained he already had served as president for seven years, having taken office in 1925, but that "my personal affairs will occupy more of my time than in the past," The president was authorized to expedite negotiations with San Pedro for purchase of property needed to construct the proposed Navy landing at the foot of Fifth street, San Pedro. -1 . 2 TO 1 AGAINST WRIGHT ACT The county voted more than two to one for repeal of the Wright prohibition enforcement act, the count, when about half the precincts had been counted standing 220,129 for and 106,822 against repeal. .
