Marsh Saturday, and the results of the Hoover address at Des Moines, are encouraging to the republicans. The Hoover address was considered as presaging victory for the party in November.

The legislative program of Rayburn includes; Regulation of competing interstate motor bus and freight lines.

The railroads, however, cannot be restored to prosperity merely by the government lending money or enacting legislation, Rayburn said.

Boarding the vehicle a block north ot the scene of the hold-up, the robber was alone except for the driver. According to de.scripticns, the same bandit had boarded another bus earlier in the evening, ridden two blocks and then disembarked on the pretense he had lost his money. Police were notified of the stickup at a late hour after Driver James had telephoned information to the Traction company headquarters from a filling station at 56th and O sts. The bandit was described as about thirty years old. 5 feet, 9 inches in height, and wearing a cap and dark raincoat. He escaped into a field to the east of Cotner boulevard, James said.

HAS A“CUliirESTATE LAMONT NOT A COMMUNIST Prefers to Be Known as Critical Sympathizer. NEW YORK. iJP^. More impressed by the cultural than by the economic gains, Corliss Lamont and his w’ife are home again from Russia. “The things that stood out on this trip,” said the son of Thomas W. Lamont, partner in J. P. Morgan & Co., "were those like the development of the minority cultures, the abolition of poverty and adult education. "Peasants who were unfathomably ignorant twenty years ago asked us que.s- tions about America’s foreign policy.” Lamont corrected the reports that he has become a member ot the communist international. “I prefer to be knowm," he said, “as a critical communist sympathizer. I am not a member of the party." •‘Nor am I a communist,” said his wife. "Instead, I am a member of the socialist party.” Both Mr. and Mrs. Lamont .said they "found the Russians comfortable and in no danger of starva tion." Libby Holman Declared Entitled to Share. NEW YORK. Í.P». Lawyers familiar with surrogate’s court practice in New York called attention to provisions in the law which would give Libby Holman Reynolds a dower right to one third of her late husband’s fortune, even tho .she was not mentioned In his will. The former Broadway slng- er’.s husband. Smith Reynolds, w’ho was shot and killed at Winston- Salem, N.

While a battery of attorneys fired question aher question at him, he traced the humble beginnings of his enterprise, told of selling lumber from a hay bam in Columbus, Kas., and getting the idea of opening a lumber yard here.

In 1918 the company’s timber lands in Louisiana began to fail. Long, then nearly seventy, could have retired a multi-millionaire, a philanthropist, a civic leader. Instead he sought the bigger game on the west coast. Judge Merrill Otis has given no bint as to his ultimate decision, but belief in lumber circles is general that the receivership will be denied—that R. A.

Mrs. Kathleen Hagood Gambrell, daughter of Maj. Gen.

Senator Kean said he told Mr. Hoover that "we need him there." but that no answer had been given him. altho it w’aa indicated the invitation would be taken under consideration. The republican campaign managers have never expanded officially their statement that the president would deliver only three campaign speeches, two in the w’est and one in the east, and no announcement* have been made as to the city in which the eastern address will be given. Campaign leaders and white house aides alike have remained officially silent concerning numerous reports, current since his De* Moines address, that the pre.sident would go not only along the eastern seaboard, but to the far west as well. Various visitors at the executive mansion hav# urged both courses. Senator Schall, Minnesota, after a conference with the president, at which he »aid political conditions in that state were discussed, said he had found Mr. Hoover "on his toes and ready to make more speeches." “Minnesota will be for Hoover In the end," Schall said. "It would be close now, but I don’t think Roosevelt could carry the state even today. The pre.sident just knocked ’em over with his Des Moines address. I told him that everywhere I went I could notice fine results.” Dr. Hubert Work, former secretary of the interior, and Hoover campaign chairman in 1928, told newspapermen he had reported to the president at a white house conference upon political conditions in five state.«? recently visited by him.

Construction of the proposed largest bridge in the world—from San Franci.sco to Oakland, Cal.—was assured when the Reconstruction Finance corporation agreed to purchase 62 millions of California state bonds to finance the project. The bonds will run for forty years at 5 percent interest, and the .state hopes to retire them in about half that time. The corporation will purchase them from time to time as funds are needed for construction of the double decked four and one half mile bridge. “The bridge will cost approximately 70 millions and will provide work for 6.000 men directly on the job and 6.000 men indirectly in Industries affected by orders for equipment and supplies in other states,” the corporation said. It will be used for vehicular and electric railroad traffic. Joseph R. Rowland, editor of Oakland; Leland Cutler, president of the San Francisco chamber of commerce, and Charles H.

They had been in the capital for several weeks urging authorization of the loan. to FOUND DEAD IN OFFICE. ST. PAUL. <.P>. James A.

Lincoln Lawyers Who Have Practiced 60 Years to Be Dinner Quests. Seven Lincoln lawyers who have completed fifty years of practice will be honored by the Lancaster County Bar association at Its first meeting of the season Saturday evening. Oct. 22. The Uncoln men whose semicentennials in the le^l profession are to be observed by the local lawyers, together with the date of their admission practice, are; John M. Stewart. 18S0. J. C. McNerney, lfiS2. Henry H. Wlleon. 1881. Oeorge A. Adam*. M. L. Eaaterday. 1876 a C. C. Flan*l'urg, 1879. W. E. Stewart. 1880. The celebration will consist of an appropriate program including an address by a* prominent out of state speaker. All of the guests of honor are engaged in active practice in the courts. "With pride we will call public attention to our seven members who have finished a half century in the profession,” said Lester L. Dunn, one of the association officers, Saturday. "And further, each of them is now dally engaged in office and in court as practitioners in what we naturally think is the greatest profession, “We believe that there are few cities of Lincoln’s size in which so large a number of attorneys have as long a continuous record in the service. They are an inspiration to the younger members and their long careers are a credit to the community itself. "It would not be easy accurately to appraise the combined influence upon the history of Lincoln of these seven gentlemen who reach back to its beginnings and who now promise many more years of usefulness. It is fitting and appropriate that their golden anniversaries in the law should be observed by the bar." Mr. Dunn also stated that during the last year the Lincoln bar has lost three members of equal or longer service, A. C. Ricketts, E. P, Holmes, and R. J, Greene. For many years prior to his death recently, Mr, Ricketts had been the dean of the Lincoln bar, having been admitted to practice in 1872. ommended to them his old coworker. Herbert H. Lehman, for the governorship. Appearing as the honor of the Roosevelt home club on a platform in the county fair grounds at W'a.shlng- ton hollow, the candidate told the several hundred persons about the cro.s8-country campaign trip he just finished and of his ideas of ttie economic interdependency of all sections of the country. Mr. Roo.sevelt said he was convinced if the prices of the major agricultural commodities, wheat, com, cotton and tobacco, could be stabilized at a reasonable level, the prices of others would automatically advance. Mr. Roosevelt listened while J. Lewis Amstcr. the chairman of the club’s committee on arrangement*, introduced Lehman who in turn introduced the presidential candidate. Lehman told the crowd that he came aa an admirer of the guest of honor. The lieutenant governor told of his long association Tvith Roosevelt and said that If he went into the gubernatorial office to succeed the candidate he would "have the examples of Alfred E. Smith and Oovemor Roosevelt to live up to.” As Mr. Roosevelt came before the microphones a man in the crowd shouted: "Dutchess county’s president." "That’s something,” said the candidate, smiling, "that I haven’t heard since I left here.” He told of the crowds he hqd encountered on his w’eatern trip and said "those kind of receptions means that people are taking an interest in the election.” "People.” said Mr. Roosevelt "are thinking more and more not in terms of partisanship but of issues. I had the idea when I left here that things were pretty bad in New York but I hoped that I would find an Improvement as I went w’e.stward. 1 am sorry to say that almost literally I found that the farther west I went the more depression seemed to have come to the people. "When I went into Nebraska knew that the prices they were getting for their corn were low but I found conditions worse than I expected. Many could not get enough from the sale of their corn to pay their taxes. In some districts they couldn’t pay their school taxes and the school au thorities agreed to let them pay in com. But the authorities could not sell the corn for enough money to buy coal and they were having the farmers dump the com in the coal chutes. In some school houses In Nebraska this winter they will bum com instead of coal. Turning then to a discussion of state affairs, Mr. Roosevelt said the state was faced with a need for every possible economy. NEBRASKA WINS OPENING BIG SIX GRIDIRON TEST Sauer’s Long Run Provides Margin When Cyclones Complete Pass. By JOHN BENTLEY. Nebraska managed to eke out B 12 to 6 verdict over Iowa State in the first Big Six conference test of the season in a game that left the 8,000 spectators with a feeling that there wa.s a world of unfinished business still to be done. To add to this, It required a •conference of officials and'timekeepers before the verdict wa* finally handed down that the game was really over. The Huskers after turning In a creditable performance In the first half bogged. down In the latter periods to the point where it *p« peered that Dick Grefe and his mates were going to win. or at least tie a game that had been counted as good as in the bag for weeks. And that might have had something to do with it. It waa a contest that left th# fan with a lapfull of conjectures. Has Nebra.ska been over rated?. Is Iowa State a better team than It appears on paper ^ On the other hand. It waa ths first official test for the Huskers and there are few teams that get by their opening game without having their troubles sad espe-* dally when the opponents are as formidable as the Iowa StSters proved to be. It was a game that provided thrills, what with long runs, ons of the longest passes ever completed here for Iowa State’s touchdown and when you stop and analyze It, for the first game of the year, a better than ordinary battle. Plenty of Penalties. Penalties, of which the Huskers had 95 yards against 6 for ths Cyclones, placed the bee very squarely on several Husker offensive thrusts. The Husker paaaera were unable to get the ball to their receivers, the latter having to stop and back up on several occasions after they had gotten behind the Iowa State d^fensivt men.
