Today's temperance objective is to put a brake on hating. Hating is a waste of energy; it seldom gets anything done, and certainly little that is worthwhile. A little hating can be a righteous thing, but much of It is corroding.

ASKS WHICH OF NEW DEAL LAWS THEY WOULD REPEAL WASHINGTON, Sept. 10 (/P)— James A. Farley, democratic national committee chairman, says newspaper Deadlines reflecting: the trend of business "answer most completely the partisan assaults on the Boosevelt administration." In a statement devoted to observations on republican criticism of the president's statement assuring business a "breathing spell," Parley said; "What I think the country would like to hear from the republicans is a mention of even one of the president's policies which they would repeal. "All hands and the cook, including such minor figures as Senator Dickinson of Iowa and Col. Teddy Roosevelt the little," he said, "dwelt en the spending of money by the administration, on his dictatorship in legislation, on the constitutionality of the measures passed by congress, on the tax program, etc. "Assuming they are on the level in these declarations, it might be presumed the G. O. P. proposed, In the absurd event of the fulfillment of its fantastic hopes for next year, to repeal all these enactments which excite them to such vehemence. Curiously enough, no such threat or promise appears in any of the statements."

The political control of the state hung in the balance. The senator's foes sought unity in their fight to sweep out the organization he created.

Funeral services for Long—whose influence spread far beyond the borders of his native state, and who was frequently discussed as a presidential possibility—were being planned.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 10 (AP) Secretary Ickes will appeal tomorrow to President Boosevelt in an attempt to have a final showdown with Harry L.

These counties and subdivisions were wet under local option prior to statewide prohibition.

Canadian Relief Client Is Killed Under Dirt Truck CANADIAN, Sept. 10 (AP)—Lee Reno, 49, Canadian relief client, was crashed to death near here Monday when he fell under the double wheels of a highway truck loaded with several tons of dirt.

None overshadowed the other. If one tried -to step ahead of the other there was danger of interncine warfare. Normally the high man would be Governor O. K. Allen but during his entire political career he has leaned heavily on Huey Long, who was a friend from the barefoot boy stage in Winn parish. Today Gov. Allen was so broken up over his friend's death that he was unapproachable. Before Long's death, but after it was known that he would die, his political lieutenants held conferences on what steps to take. . In them were Gov. Allen, Seymour Weiss, Long political treasurer; Abe Shushan, director of the Orleans levee board; Lieutenant Governor James A. Noe, Allen Vellender, speaker of the house; George Wallace, Long's legislative adviser and others. On one of these six the chances are the toga of Long will fall but that will be determined in faction caucus later. Whether any one of these can hold the gigantic and all embracing racks laid down by the redoubtable Huey remains to be seen. Long.
