Talmadge Asks Smith to Line Up With Him ATLANTA. June 22. f/P)-—Gover- nor Eugene Taimndge, new deal rritlc. today urged Alfred E. Smith and other discontented Democrats to "line up with me on my plan to fight the new deal and Roosevelt within the Democratic party." The Georgia executive made it plain he did not Intend to bolt the party ticket. "I am a party man," Talmadge said, banging his fist on his desk. "I am opposed to Roosevelt being the nominee of the party. "I am opposed to new deal policies. I think I've been of great assistance to the American people in bringing cases to the Supreme Court in the name of the State of Georgia in order to defeat certain new deal policies. 'But I want it understood that I am in the Democratic parly and there to stay." HINDENBURG SETS RECORD LAKEHURST, N. J., June 22 —The dirigible Hindenburg grounded at the naval air station at 4:15 a. in. (Central Standard Time) today, bettering its previous record for a westward crossing of the north Atlantic by 32 minutes. It was 61 hours and 25 minutes out of its home port, Frank Fort-on- vlain, Germany, when the ground- ng ropes wera heaved out. Dr. Hugo Eckener was in command. By JOHN SELBBY Vincent Sheean's "Sanfelice" is probably the book of the week, for those who want to make choices such as that. But there will be those who believe Mr. Sheean and his publishers both are getting the cart before the horse in what they say of the novel. For "Sanfelice" is a historical romance with a tragis denouement, and should be read as such, and not as an expression of Mr. Sheean's "problem of revolution conceived as the violent acceleration of historic processes." This seems obvious; there Is a school of historiographers which will not even admit that there are historic "processes"; to them there is only chao.s. They can pretty well prove their point, too, as readers of Charles A. Beard's "The Discussion of Human Affairs" will know. "Sanfelice" is the story of a woman of the upper classes who through tricks of poverty and a chance meeting at a hall finds herself in love with a lawyer's clerk and In the end the unwitting apex of the revolutionary movement in the Naples of 1799. It is difficult to see in this anything but luck, good and bad. Nor does Mr. Sheean explain himself in the book any more convincingly than outside it. But as a historical novel, 'Sanfelice" Is tops. The portraits of Sir William and Lady Hamilton, of Lord Nelson, of Queen Caroline, are extraordinarily lifelike. Some of the proletarian characters do not fare so well, but what matters that in a romance? Readers of Sabatinl may not care much for Mr. Sheean's latest, but readers of Dumas will. Thumbnail Reviews "Green Mountains to Sierras," by Zephine Humphrey: a motor trip from Vermont to California and back again; charming in a way, but if you expect a reason for the book to emerge, you'll be disappointed. "What I Left Unsaid," by Daisy, Princess of Pless: a third volume by this Englishwoman who married a German prince; quite vivacious in spots, in a very English way. "So Long to Learn," by Doreen Wallace: first rate English novel about a girl who loved farming and the two men with whom her life was shared. "Uncommon Law," by A. P. Herbert: Mr. Herbert, by means of a set of imaginary cases, points out absurdities and loopholes in the law. "Mary Thomas' Embroidery Book" she wrote first a dictionary of embroidery stitches; now she tells what to do with them; a kind of needle- worker's thesaurus. "Sheldon's Way," by Wynward Browne: a vicar feels his Christian duty to his two unpleasant spinster sisiters so keenly that they rule him; the book, Mr. Browne's first published in this country, is also a satire on British church mechanics. "How to Build Motor Car Trailers," by A. Frederick Collins: instructions and small-scale working drawings for the construction ot either a tourist trailer of a luxurious traveling home; 300,000 people live tn trailers already, says Mr. Collins. "This Gun For Hire," by Graham Green: one of those delightfully improbable, hard-hitting stories of villainy; a harelipped man who kills for hire, a little man and has secretary, both dead, an actress—etc. $25.00 REWARD Will be paid by the manufacturer for any Corn GREAT CHRISTOPHER Corn Cure cannot remove.

MARSHALL AUSTIN, June 20 (AP)—After threatening to punch Dr. Rexford Guy Tugwell, New Deal "brain truster," in the nose, Rep. Eugene Worley had another thought. "I wonder how big a man Tugwell is," he mused. "But no matter. Regardless of size, I'll take a swing for the honor of the Texas Panhandle." Worley objected to a motion picture made by the Rural Resettlement Administration depicting scenes in drought-stricken areas of the United States. "It's a libel on the greatest section in the country," he said. Rep Harold Hankamer of El Paso, smallest man in the legislature Is opposed for re-election, he said, by R. W. Page, nearly seven feet tall. "I hope to whittle him down to my size and get most of the votes as usual," Hankamer said. His district is the 90th and Includes part of El Paso and all of Hudspelh and Culberson counties. W. W. Bridgere, a member of the 28th and 29th legislatures, Is running, unopposed, for a full term as representative from the 89th district, Place No. 2. He was elected last February for the un- expired portion of the term of Rep William Clayton, who resign- ed to accept a counts' position. H. P. • Jackson Is without opposition for re-election to Place No. 1 In the 89th district, composed of El Paso county. Directors of the Centennial by resolution thanked Gov. Allredfor his services in publicizing the celebration' in state and nation. The resolution noted the value of nation-wide publicity was recognized by the setting aside of $500,000 for advertising and said that to back up this fund and produce other publicity excursions of various kinds were promoted. "To dignify such excursions and obtain desired publicity by the presence of Important state officials," it said, "it was frequently necessary to request the governor of Texas to accompany such parties and be the principal spokesman for Texas and the Centennial" Neither of the Governors Ferguson, James E. or Miriam A., attended the breakfast tendered Secretary of Commerce Daniel C. Roper at the executive mansion by Gov. Allrpcl. They were not invited. On the other hand, former Governor and Mrs. Dan Moody were Invited, although Moody was out of town. No one would comment on the ommlsslon of the Fergusons from the guest list. Others invited included: Bill Yeager, aide to Roper; Former Postmaster General A. S. Burleson; Mayor Tom Miller and Harry Hines, chairman of the highway commission. Read The News Want-Ads. OUT OUR WAY By WILLIAMS /THAT SIT- RIGHT THEEE NOW VOU'VE GOT THE ft PRINCIPLE OF BOULDER.
