While there arc those who think. that Governor Smith's religion vlli lose him many votes, they overlook the fact that his religion •ail! also win him many votes. It seems at this stage of the campaign thst Governor Smith wili receive KB many vote* because ho is it Catholic u be will tote because he is a C«tfao51c. It teems to i* & safe g'wws that the ntlijiiseiis quss«ion in so far as Governor Smith is concerned will bring as many votes as it will lose and thus one side trill bftlanc? the other. Smith's religion will not defeat tarn. In feet GoTfrnar Smith's religion trill in ce way determine the election. In the first pJaos Oorernor Smith has lost greatly through his abose of every kind acaiost the opposition. Bcorcr has *tjn public coafi- derwa becanse he has refused to enfaee in any kind of personal abuse against anyone. Hoover has conducted his campaign in a dignified manner such as befits a candidate for president. Governor Smith has appeared to be rather too much of a vaudeville actor to satisfy the betfcs 1 etocenta of his own party. The people of tfois country are opposed to T&mroany and to Tfcmmany methods. Gov~ c-roor Smith's speeches will go ever big in Tammany, but ort the radio, where dignified Bnd*^lUCTt8d~TBSr~a£S[~^romeia "arcT siting quietly in their homes, thinking seriously and earnestly of the but interests of their country, the govrraor*s vaudeville performances bare cost him tremendously. His speeches lost him more votes than they made. In other wards Governor Smith has talked himself out of •, Job if there was at any timo stay projects that^io presidency was in lu-s grasp. Secretary Hoover docs not make a talk imtil he has thoroughly prepared his address. It may be a "canned speech"— but the canning has been mighty well done. Smith went to Chicago -without having his speech prepared— and the speech showed it When Hoover finishes the great radio audience, and the reading public, knows that he has a big. dignified grasp on public affairs, is a business uun who believes in applying business methods to governmental aff&irs, and he makes » taettog; toopnasioa on all who have heard him. When the public U through with Governor Smith's "wise cracks" over the radio, it has had something to laugh s*,t, but in the eod CUB remember only one real prcnosi- tioa thai governor seems to know what he And that i* that Governor Smith believes to the legalised cale of intoxicating liquors.

All ancipnt civilizations perished. And we may yet talk one another to death trying to tell something. "Call money earns 10 per cent," says a headline. Not always. Sometimes you call with $10 and lose a pot worth $80. We need one more dinner club, with members pledged to the highest and roost blecsed service—that of minding their own bHsiae«. It Isnt lack of popularity that mates everybody iectn to d&like you; it is lack of self-respect. Plying high doesn't get you anywhere.
