LEE. Yale Bowl, New Haven, Oct 29. The Yale football team came to lift with a surging' rush tnis afternoon to beat a heavily favored Dartmouth team, 6 to 0, and keep ailve a cherished Eli gridiron tradition, A crowd of 27,000 saw the game. It was a superb Yale victory without any qualifying circumstances. There was no fluke. Dartmouth was outplayed and several thousand Dartmouth men who had come to the Bewl happily anticipating a certain victory for their tean left the huge saucer still hungry for the Green's first overthrow of a Yale eleven. Play as Though Inspired. Every man on the Eli team played as though inspired. Perhaps it was the tradition of never having lost to Dartmouth or the fact that another defeat today would put a smear of black across tr.e annals of Yale football such as had never before been placed there. Whatever it was, the Elis lifted themselves out of their lethargy and played fighting football, used intelligent tactics and were alert enough defensively to keep a literal barrage of Dartmouth forward passes from crossing the Blue-gea4-line. After a first period In which j nothing of a scoring threat de-; "eloped but that nevertheless gave j 4ie first indications of a newborn Blue eleven, the Bulldog twice drove through Dartmouth territory, the second advance culminating in the only touchdown of the gn-ne 1 The Yale touchdown came on the heels of what might have been a most disheartening break Big Jce Crowley, blocking back, plunger and defensive ace, had been taken from the field in the first period with an injured arm. Andy Callan, an almost unknown sophomore, had been im tailed in his place. Season's Second Touchdown. No one knew what Callan could do, or how closely he would come to filling Crowley s shoes, but the . new back shared the bombardment of the Green line with Bob Lassiter and finally hurtled himself across the enemy goal line for the only score of the game, Yale's firs; touchdown sines the Chicago game and its second of the season. After a Yale punt had been called bad and Dartmouth penalized five yards for offside, Pat Sullivan, the Eli field general, disdained to kick again. Instead he sent Andy Callan away on a reverse slant through the Green right tackle lor 16 yards and a first down on the Dartmouth 37 yard line. Then .Lassiter, on a spinner, tore off 19more. Nine more yards and the Yale attack yielded to a fighting Dartmouth line, the Green taking the ball on downs on Its own 10-yard stripe. , That attack was piled up short of a score, but the next one wasn't. Roily Morton punted back to Bob Lassiter, the lanky Southerner catching the ball on his own 47-yard line and racing to the Dartmouth 39. Then came a crushing fill offense strongly reminiscent of the Bruce Caldwell era. Mindful of Jones Era. Callan slammed through for five yards, Lassiter raced through -a yawning gap in the middle on a spinner play for 15 more. Then Callan again and Lassister twice more, planting the ball on Dartmouth's four-yard line, first down. This time there was no sputtering of a sparkless attack. It took one play more. Andy Callan clutched the ball on a reverse play, cut sharply to his right and crashed through the Green right guard for the touchdown. Here was a real Yale touchdown, a scoring punch that was mindful of Yale power plays of the Tad Jones era. The Yale stands were a mass of wildly waving arms, hats tossed skyward, torn papers and programs (Concluded on Page 1, Part IV.)

Bay State Welcomes Roosevelt Mohawk Trail Towns Turn Out For Nominee, on Way to Visit Sons at Groton School Groton, Mass., Oct. 29. CAP.) Franklin D. Roosevelt entered Massachusetts today to a friendly welcome in half a dozen towns through which he passed to Groton. The Democratic Presidential candidal was met at the state line by Governor Ely, who, with a group of state Democratic leaders accompanied Mr. Roosevelt on the sweep down the Mohawk Trail through Williamstown, North Adams, Greenfield. Orange, Athol, Gardner, Fitchburg and Ayer. One Short Talk. At Ayer in the early evening the New York Governor made the first talk of the day. A large crowd had gathered in the public square and jammed into the streets. ULam glad to see you my friends, again," he said into the microphone of the loud speakers. "I think I can say my old friends. Many of you were here when I was here 40 years ago. I have been coming to Ayer for a long time. We used to come over here skiing from Groton. On certain occasions 30 years ago I used to teach Sunday school here, it is good to "be back." The Governor spoke from the back seat of the open car in which he had ridden since noon. A heavy overcoat was buttoned tightly about his throat and the collar was turned up to shut out the autumn chill. A few minutes later his automobile drew up in front of the Parents home on the grounds of the Groton School for Boys and his son, John, a tall lad, came racing out to hug the candidate. Franklin, Jr., another student at the school, broke his nose in football scrimmage several days ago and is being treated in Boston. Mr. Roosevelt plam jd to spend both tonight and tomorrow night at the Parents home and will leave at 8 a. m. Monday for an automobile trip to Portland, Me., returning the same night to-speak in Bast on. Towns Give Warm Greeting. At Williamstown a group of Williams College students came out to cheer for the candidate. At Greenfield, a little later, a drum corps, dressed in brilliant red uniforms, met the caravan as it came Intff the town and matched before the candidate's automobile through the main street while the crowd pheered his arrival. Near the center of the town, the ciowd swarmed thickly about his automobile during a brief stop. Just back of the point where Mr. Roosevelt stopped a huge banner was strung across the street. "Vote Republican," it said. "Secure your job. Reelect Herbert Hoover. Play safe. Further economic recovery depends on Hoover. Vote the Republican ticket." Governor Roosevelt ate a hot dog for lunch at a roadside stand high up in the Berkshire hills. After climbing high into the hills along a road that zigzagged its way up above the valley, the automobile drew to a stop at a store and restaurant that nestled in a cove. The candidate was brought a hot dog and coffee, which he ate while seated in his automobile chatting with Governor Ely and Senator (Concluded on Pa Re 4.) -0 News Index o The Courant today consists of 64 pages in seven parts as follows: PART I.

Roosevelt Is Nation's Hope Smith Avers Says He Finds in Every Section United Opinion Democrat's Election Vital to Relief Cheered By 6000 Crowd AtBuffalo Speech Devoted Mostly to State Issues, , Praising Lehman, Criticizing Donovan, Opponent ' Music Hall, Buffalo, N. Y., Oct. 29. (AP.) Alfred E. Smith brought thunderous cheers from a crowd estimated by police at 6000 as he wound up a campaign speech for the Democratic state ticket by declaring he had found "pretty nearly a united opinion that the hope of this country for relief lies absolutely in the "election of Frank Roosevelt. He made this observations, he explained, on the basis of his campaign tour in the interest of his old political ally, Governor Rooseveltthe man whom, he had opposed at Chicago for the Presidential nomination. "I . talked to men who had their hands on the public pulse," he said "and I found out the people in the East, as well as in every other section, agree that the present Republican Administration is a dismal failure. "Four years ago they promised us the earth and they agreed to put a white fence around it for good measure. "The Republican best minds are not competent. They are not there today. Says Nation Looks to Roosevelt. "I find pretty nearly a united opinion that the hope of this country for relief from present conditions; for a forward-looking, progressive policy to prevent another catastrophe such as we are passing through,-lies absolutely in the election of Frank Roosevelt" The throng, which had swished through one of the worst rain and wind storms of the season to hear the former Governor, roared their approval and cut Smith short. When the tumult died, Democracy's 1928 standard bearer added: "and in the election of a Democratic Senate and House of Representatives." Smith's final words were a reference to the Biblical incident of an ancient king who unwisely ruled his nation and who saw the "handwriting on the wall." "That handriting said 'you have been tried in the balance and lound wanting,'" Smith quoted, then added: "That's written in the record todayacross the United States." Smith spoke almost entirely about state issues. Earlier in the day he had explained this would be his principal speech for Herbert H. Lehman, the man he and Roosevelt fought for in the state Democratic convention, and that he would go back to national issues in his two New York city speeches. Describes New England Tour. In his conclusion Smith told of his tour through New England. He called the Boston gathering at (Concluded on Page 10.)

Here ; Still in Power of People y to Make as Well as Break Future at Polls, Secretary Says Accuses Roosevelt Of Vague Stand Tariff Cannot lie Disturbed, He Declares Trumbull and Bingham Speak Declaring that he did not come to threaten but to warn, Ogdcn L. Mills of New York, Secretary of the Treasury, addressing a Republican rally that overflowed the capacity of Bushnell Memorial Hall Saturday night, called for the reelection of President Hoover and the defeat of the Democratic nominee, Franklin D. Roosevelt of New York. "The one oloud on the horizon," he said, "is the fear of a change In the Administration. It Is sltil In the piwer of the American people to break as well as make their future at the polls." He warned that the dangers threatened by the program of the Democratic House in the last Congress "can come back over night through human folly." and charged that the record Indicated that folly Is to be expected if the Democrats are placed In power. Both fornitrjDovcrnor John H. Trumbull, Republican candidate for Governor, and United States Senator Hiram Bingham, who preceded Secretary Mills, attacked Governor' Roosevelt for his lack of a program, the former charging the Democratic candidates on the national ticket "are giving other than facts a string of promises." Senator Bingham called Governor Roosevelt "this promising young man," and accused him of "trading on his family name." The Senator prabed Theodore Roosevelt, who. he said, took office when the "sainted Mc-Kinlcy" was stricken down by an assassin, "partly due to the newspaper campaign carried on by a publisher who Is now for the Democratic nominee." Crowd Stands Outside. The rally was the largest political gathering in Hartford In many years with every seat in the vast auditorium taken and the limit reached on standing room a tew minutes after 8 o'clock. Outside the hall, where red fue added to the color of the gathering, an overflow crowd heard the speeches through amplifiers. There will be voters, wearied In the long fight against the depression. Secretary Mills said, who will cast their 'otes in the forlorn hope of mere change, but he expressed his belief that the great body of American citizens will vote tor President Hoover, as one who hus come to grips with the prjat problems cf depression and recovery, "rather than in favor of the candidate who has refused even to discuss them."
