DAILY NEWS, MONDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1928 OUR COUNTRY In her intercourse with foreign nations may she always be in the right; but our country, right or wrong. Stephen Decatur. DAILY NEWS PLATFORM 1 A Seat for Every Child in the Public Schools. A 5-Cent Fare and Better Service. S Improved Traffic Conditions in the Streets. 4 Modification of the Volstead Act. 5 Another Bridge Across the East River? 6 More and Better Parks. 6 eC.," . ' i' 4 ! Franklin Delano Roosevelt FOR GOVERNOR: FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT , For governor of the state of New York, each of the two major political parties has nominated a man of great ability and complete fitness for the office. Heading the Republican ticket is Albert Ottinger, at present attorney general, foe of bucket shops, loan sharks, and other kinds of crooks. The Democratic nominee is Franklin D. Roosevelt, lawyer, business executive, one-time anti-Tammany crusader, assistant secretary of the navy under Woodrow Wilson. - So far as qualifications for the office and general attitude toward state problems are concerned, there is little to choose between these two men. To call Ottinger a tool of the power interests because he favors development of the state's water power resources by private capital is "as unfair and partisan as it is to call Roosevelt a demagogue or a Socialist because he favors public control of water power. . Either candidate's favorite scheme for developing the Niagara and St. Lawrence power sites could lead to grave abuses. But the point is that each is determined, if elected, to stop those millions of horsepower from running out to sea unused as they do now. j So with the other campaign issues all save one. Both candidates are liberal and progressive; both have that courage without which a governor is a governor in name only. But on one issue they do differ irreconcilably. The same issue is rending and disrupting and corrupting the United States. That issue is federal prohibition as embodied in the eighteenth amendment and the Volstead act. New York in 1923 repealed the Mullan-Gage law, its etate dry enforcement statute. Mr. Roosevelt has said clearly that, if elected, he will use his influence against the re-enactment of any state dry law. He has intimated that if the legislature passes such a bill he intends to veto it. Mr. Ottinger was asked by- this newspaper some days ago to reveal his attitude toward any revival of prohibition legislation in this state. He asked us to wait for his acceptance speech of Oct. 15. In that speech he said nothing about prohibition. We are forced to conclude that Mr. Ottinger hopes to win wet votes in the greater city and dry votes upstate by a policy of silence. We believe he would sign a state dry law if the legislature should pass one. THE NEWS has always considered, the eighteenth amendment and the Volstead act a twin, unmitigated curse to this nation. The majority of New York people oppose prohibition and want none of it on their state statute books. For these reasons this newspaper, while retaining its complete independence of the Democratic party, urges the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt to the governorship by the voters of New York. Tomorrow and Wednesday in this column we shall discuss the candidacies of Messrs. Herbert Hoover and Alfred E. Smith for the presidency, and our attitude toward them. The election is fifteen days off. If you are for prohibition, vote for Hoover. If you are against prohibition, vote THE INQUIRING PHOTOGRAPHER Every Day He Asks a Question and Pictures Those Questioned. THE NEWS will pay $5 for every question submitted and used in this column. Today's award goes to Grace Felleman, 330 East 167th st, Bronx. THE QUESTION: Would you give a single girl preference over a married woman, or would you judge only by ability? THE PLACE: St. George, Staten Island. THE ANSWERS: a B. Gillis, Stapleton, buyer: "I would judge by ability only. As a rule, I think that married women have more ability than single girls, because they are older and have. ' a greater sense of r o s n nnsibilitv. - t- - - & However, if the V - ... J ability is equal I would give preference to the single girl." Charles E. Coleman, Philadel phia, musical director: . "If both girls seemed to have equal ability I would employ the girl who seemed to be more in need of a job. If the married woman's husband was out of work she would get the preference, for she would need the job more than the other girl." Werner Beyer, Fort Wadsworth, T ii tm i ii up cashier: "I would consider ability alone. There are many people who will not employ married women, but it seems to me that you " hire people for the good and efficiency of the o r g a n i zation. and, with that as a premise, it is reasonable to employ the girl who is most able." T. C. Schenk, 70th St., Brooklyn, s u perintendent: "First I consider the ability of the girls, but where the ability is about equal I will give the single girl J J preference. We f don,t hire for I y? anything clue but business efficiency, and the most able girl is the greater asset to the business." . F. L. Haight, Woodland Beach, operator: "1 would judge only by ability. A business man cannot allow his sympathy to interfere with his business judgment. If he does that to any great extent he will not prosper m his business. I wouldn't hesitate to employ a married woman if she were more able." Rudolph DeLucas, Chicago, ele vators: After judging the ability of both girls, I would then pHva th i. 1 ' J whft ri tt a rl a A it the most, pro- i vided she was as as able as the other girL I wouldn't lose sight of business efficiency when -1 I I. 1 OUR SECRET AMBITION Ui ww dom't woo ovoe M w J OVER AM 3M WHAT tPWfl T VOICE OF THE PEOPLE FUmse give name end edarmsm with your letter.

My minor brother, for first offense consisting of thetheft of a few worthless articles, got fifteen months to five years in Elmira reformatory. One law for the rich, etc., etc. JOSEPH ODDO. THE MOVIE SCnOOLSx Amityville: I don't" like Flinn's letter published by you under the title "Movie Fraud." Flinn gets the function of the school confused with that of several factors outside the school over which the school has no controL The school teaches. The man learns. The city grants licenses. The union ' largely controls the labor situation and employment. The theatres and movie houses hire and pay wages. And the man of common sense investigates all factors related to a contemplated vocational objective. Thus Flinn holds the school responsible for the province ofthe city, the union, the theatres, " and the situation as a whole. He also places on the school responsibility for the student's lack of investigative sense. Schools will continue teaching, cities will continue to license, and unions to enroll, and employers to hire. And men will flow in and out of the movie field as they will every other field of human endeavor. The fellows who use their heads will forever survive those who don't or haven't any to use! I took a school course and as a result hold a better job than I ever held before, even though I did wait three months before union placement. JAMES A. CONROY. DORIS DISPUTED AND HOW! Kingston: What kind of a poor congealed stiff is this Joseph, who asks Doris Blake if he can properly kiss his girl after going out with! her for a month ? And Miss Blake helpfully tells him not to think of such an atrocious act it might break np his beautiful friendship. The verra ideah, Archibald! Papa kick out all baby's teeth. It's getting to be a helluva world when a fellow can't kiss a girl without a special dispensation from Miss tslake. Neckingly yours, JOE McC, BILL R. HOOVER JTNXED? Queens: How can Herbert Hoov er be elected with thirteen letters m his name? J. FITZPATRICK. COLUMSKY. Brooklyn: So Columbus was Jewish, eh, yon funny-looking Hoover-Ottmgente! What was his real name Columsky? . " ' ' ONE WHO KNOWS. PARK PETTERS. Manhattan: The police would be glad to pass up the love birds in ' the park were it not for the fact that 50 per cent, of the petters are married men between the ages of 45 and 60 with girls of 16 to 13 years of age. Very often it is a case of married women with young men. PATROLMAN. BIGHEARTED BOSS. Manhattan: Our Winnie Winkle went out to lunch and met her old boy friend, Roy Leighton. They talked and talked and walked until they reached the park. There they sat and started spooning, and before we knew it the moon was shining. Why was nothing said to her by her employer about not returning to the office after lunch? How come? PAULINE MACRL "SMITO HOODLUMS." Brooklyn: Cheer up,, Curtis. I happened to be one of the Hoover crowd at the sub-treasury. Why worry about those hoodlums wearing Smith buttons who have no respect for a woman? Those few votes won't be missed anyway. A. M. IL . "LIKE" AND "LOVE." Brooklyn: I like a man who is wealthy, refined, intelligent and well-bred. I love one who has little education or money. When I try to decide which one to marry, my poor head swims. MARY. CUTS BOTH WAYS. Manhattan: Some fool of a minister said Al Smith was a drunkard. O. K. by me, if it's tmo. Al gets my vote anyway.
