Williams, speaking from the bench in federal district court today, branded the Henshaw bill, to repeal prohibition in OlUahoma. as "thcf most iniquitous measure ever at-^; tempted to be fostered on a free people" and urged all Oklahoihans to vote against the bill. "I cannot understand how anybody can have the gall," the fiery jurist declared, "to ask people to vote for a measure that places such dictatorial powers in the hand.s of a politically appointed conrimis.sion with unlimited funds and jobs at their disposal to build up a political machine. "I Will vote for straight repeal after the proposition has been \voi-ked out by representatives of all factions, prohibition and anti if the measure they agree upon is submitted to the legislature and enacted into a law, not to go Into effect until 90 days after the legislature adjourns. "I am unalterably opposed to the bill as it Is. It is too near the law of slavery to suit me and invests too much power in the hands of a politically appointed commission" He charged there is no provision in the bill that would prevent the cpmrnisslon setting up saloons. o • The, annual carnival which will be held tWs year at the high school, Friday, Octot)er 30, ijegin- ning at 7:30 offers many attractions to persons of all ages.

"The Digest's own figures show a sure Roosevelt victory," Nichols said. "Their figures are plain; only their interpretation is wrong." "Take the 'how the voters voted in 1932 election' break-down to start wltli. This shows Landon receiving 715,884 votes from Republicans who voted for Hoover In 1932. Roosevelt on the other hand has only 540,000 votes from Democrats who voted for him in 1932. Is this a clue? Doesn't is look like the poll is taken mainly among who voted Republican in 1932 —and doesn't the Digest admit It by these figures? Cites Figures. "Now take the total Democrats given as voting for Landon Vvho voted for Roosevelt in 1932, which is 194,559, and add this to the Roosevelt Democratic vote. 540,316, and you get a total of 734.865 ballots from 1932 Democrats. In the same way, add the 106.806 persons (Continued on back page.) BOSTON, Oct. 21: —President Roosevelt asserted on historic Boston common Wednesday that five additional years of depression was New England's "debt" to the "Republican leadership," but that under the New Deal the region is "coming out of its troubles." He paused in Boston on the way to Worcester for a major address, the high spot of his two-day campaign for the 29 electoral votes of Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut: A crswd which city officials estimated at 175,000 jammed into the common to hear the president's sixth speech of the day. National guardsmen were called to aid Boston officers in maintaining police lines and to keep a road open for the president's car. The president asked what the present administration had done and supplied this answer: 1. Raised wages and living standards in other sections, toward the standards of New England, so as to help destroy "that kind of im- fair competition." 2. Begun the first real offensive in American history against "that concentrated wealth and monopolistic power which almost destroyed small businesses and diversified Industrles '-of -Nfnja England." 3. Begun tp reopen foreign markets to New England products and shipping by reciprocal trade agreements. 4. Increased the purchasing power of New England's customers on farms and cities. Nichols In Colorado To Speak For Ticket Checotah Seeks Fish For New Reservoir The Union Summit singing convention will be held at Onapa. Sats-, urday night and Sunday, October 24 and 25, H. F.

Every Democratic woman in the county is invited to be present and take part in the meeting. Rep. Jack Nichols was asked yesterday to Intercede with the federal bureau of fisheries to help stock the newly constructed Checotah municipal lake, near Onapa, with game fish fingerlings. John Buford, Checotah publish- ler. conferred with W. T. Huff, Nichols' secretary, and asked that the congressman use his influence to obtain the fish. Buford said sportsmen estimate that 100,000 fish should be put in the lake, but that only about 7000 have been supplied by the state fish and game commission. Nichols recently asked farmers whose fish were killed during the drouth to^ write for application blanks which are to be sent to the federal bureau of fisheries. Huff suggested that the Checotah 'City council formally petition Nichols to supply the fingerlings so that the letter can be sent to Washington with the request. He said he felt there will be no difficulty in obtaining aid. The Checotah municipal lake was completed last spring as a PWA project. It has been in use for approximately six months.
