London the home economics expert, who is conducting The Gazette Free Cooking School this week. In her lecture- demonstration Wednesday afternoon. Mrs. Louden urged the ladles in her audience to give the budget plan a trial, on a real business basis, not for only a few weeks' time but for six months or a year. She suggested that the beginning: of the new year would be a very fitting time to commence the plan and work it out. "Budgeting doesn't apply to the women folks alone," said Mrs. Loudon, "but to the whole family. I believe that the wife Is as much a partner In the marriage firm as the husband, and should have a band on the purse strings too. She nan a much better knowledge of the household needs and costs than any other member of the family."

SLAYER OF TWO FASCISTI PAYS WITH HIS LIFE Hoover Listed On British Election Rolls Beeatist He Leased a Houst By James L. West. (Associated Press StafT Writer) Washington, Oct. 18— (A.P,)— A statement by Dr. Hubert Worlt, chairman of the republican nation" all committee, published today, de« nounces "one of the most unjust whispering campaigns in the history of presidential contests." "Whispers," the statement en* plains, arose from the fact Unit Herbert Hoovrr was listed on llsh voters' roils without his knowledge years ago, Saying that he has been informed that American detective agencies »nrt apposition newspapers havw taken photographs of these rolls attti propose to produce them in the United States, Dr. Work's statemenl says thnt to circulate this material is on outrage on Mr. Hoover and a fraud on the American people. The listing. Work explained, was done by English officials under requirements of law because Hoover as the lessor of a house paid taxes which carries the right to vote. Never Any Question. Dr. Work's arraignment of this whispering campaign was made public yesterday after the state department had issued a formal statement declaring that "there never has been the slightest question o) Mr. Hoover's American citizenship." This statement was in the form of a letter written to the representative of an unnamed newspaper which had asked for a record of the dates when Hoover registered at the American consulate in London. Signed by W. R. Castle, Jr., -assistant secretary of state, the letter said that Hoover had registered In 1008 and that passports had been issued to him on five occasions from the years 1909 to 1818.
