If anything, they were still clearer than that in their warning that they like Owen T.

Governor Ritchie of Maryland likewise is mighty conservative for. progressive tastes. f-HE PROGRESSIVES did not I quite announce that no democrat except Governor Roosevelt will meet their requirements. _ Nevertheless, whatever there Is of political strength that their leaders can-throw tc- him it is-evident Umt he will get, if placed at the head oE the democratic ticket; and no othei Jeffersonian- possibility was sug- 'ested at the conference for whom Jnything like an equal amount, ot enthusiasm was shown.

Ruth Chatterton scores another hit In "The Lady of Scandal" which s to be, presented for the last time Thursday evening at the Iowa theater. This picture is an all talking adaptation of Frederick · Lonsdale's stage success, "The High Road."

"Resurrec tion" is a triumph in screen tech nique. Its dialog and musical ef fects are vibrant with dramatic ten sity; its photography is glamorous pictorial; the adaptation is scintil lant with romantic charm and poig nant tragedy. Edwin Carewe, th noted director, has caught the psy chology and philosophy of Tolstoy and has faithfully brot to life on th screen the virile, fascinating char acters of · the , book. The screen adaptation and dialog were written .by Finis Fox.

All it can do is to register-a protest.', Yet it seems incredible that progressive human nature, after the ex- pllcitness and vehemence with which its spokesman have expressed themselves, could endure the humiliation of dzciding between a ballot . for Mr. Hoover or Owen D. Young. As for "going fishing", on election i day, fishing is too passive a sport for the progressive temperament. QENATOR-ELECT J. HAMILTON O LEWIS, without any ."ifs" or "ands" about it, already has predicted "a fusion ticket in 1932, hacked mainly by dissatisfied republicans." That would.be all. right from Aunty Democracy's angle, provided she could be sure that the dissatia-! fied folk will be "mainly republicans." . But can she be sure of it?
