Miss Mar-g?.ret Hufford has arranged a program in conjunction w ith the regular business meeting of active pnunbers to b« held at 7 p.m. DES MOINES, Ia., Oct 10—(UP) | —Ex-Senator James A. Reed, perhaps the fieriest orator in Democratic ranks, “answered” President Hoover’s recent Des Moines address tonight by blaming the president and the Republican tariff for agriculture s plight From the platform in the old brick coliseum here where the president last week opened his campaign for re-election, Reed employed his most polished satire to lash Mr. Hoover, his record, and ris advisers. Reed, former senator from Missouri and long a critic of the president, was called upon by the Democratic party to follow Mr. Hoover into Iowa and answer, point by point, his important campaign utterances here. Reed told his audience he knew “all the answers.” Then as he swung into the farm problem he took the offensive and Warned the president for war-time regulation of the price of wheat. That made the farmer “pay for everything he bought at World w ar prices, but he was not permitted to obtain world war prices for what he had to sell,” Reed said. 1 his regulation and high tariffsi in the post-war period which enabled manufacturers to maintain war prices on their products,” are the underlying factors in the farmers' troubles, Reed added. His own,view of the tariff prob-I lem, Reed said, is that “if we are to have a tariff for the protection of the manufacturers of things that the farmer must buy, then the farmer should receive an equivalent protection. That he cannot receive because he is an exporter rather than an importer, but insofar as the inequality can be reduced, we stand for giving him that protection.” Large Ticket Sale Reported Drama Shop To Present “Streets of New York” Two Evenings Phenomenal advance sale of tickets for “Streets of New York,” five-act melodrama to be presented by Drama Shop on Friday and Saturday evenings, was reported last night by A'al Jean McCoy, chairman of the ticket conjmittee. Presentation of the play on two nights was agreed on by Drama Shop officers in order to make positive the accomodation of all those expected to attend. The limited capacity of Touchstone theater was said to be another factor. Tickets went on sale last Tuesday at 20, 30, and 40 cents, the theater being divided into three approximately equal parts. While the different-priced sections will be kept distinct, according to McCoy, seats within sections will not be reserved. The* unusual price scale was attributed to the tradition of the play, which was first produced 75 years ago, in the heyday of the “10-20-30” era. In those days balcony seats were 10 and 20 cents, the “pit” costing 30 cents. Production expenses are higher now, how-however, according to Norman Wright, diredor of the play; what are outlandish costumes now' were everyday garments in 1857. The cashier’s office in the University bookstore and the School of Speech office have tickets on sale, as well as the following members of Drama Shop: Norman Wright, Louise Johnson, Val Jean McCoy, Rita Holtzjian, Beatrix Finston, and Les Koritz.

C. in Bovard auditorium while two Trojans will travel to Palo Alto for a tilt with the Indians.

As soon as the white-haired exmillionaire was taken into custody, officials of both Greece and United States moved to obtain his extradition to Chicago, where he and his brother, Martin, are under indictment on charges of embezzlement in the crash of the Insull utilities “empire.” Insull was calmly drinking coffee at his hotel when police detained him. He complained bitterly about his lot, declaring that he has “lost over $100,000,000” in the collapse of his utilities companies. His wife, he said, lost another $50,000,000, and his son had losses too. Denies Charges Insull voiced vigorous denial that he had been guilty of wrong-doing, insisting that he is not an embezzler. He left Chicago, he said, because of his health, and he has not, he insisted, tried to evade arrest. “All my troubles are due to the newspapers,” he said, complaining bitterly about press reports that he has been living a luxurious life in Paris. Police tonight were considering releasing him for the time being, but it was indicated a careful watch will be kept of his movements until such time as definite action on the matter of extradition has been taken. Mutual Agreement Insull, who fled from his hotel in Paris last week after word of the Chicago indictment reached him, arrived in the Greek capital Saturday morning from Salonica. He went from Albania to Salonica by plane on the previous day, it was learned. Although Greece and the United States have not ratified their extradition treaty, an agreement has been reached between the two countries under which a mutual exchange of fugitives may be made. The Insull case will be handled under that agreement, it is understood. Grace Stoermer, prominent woman banking leader, will speak in Bovard auditorium this morning during assembly period in the first of a series of vocational guidance talks sponsored by the Y. W. C. A.

Bob McNeil, president, will outline changes to be affected in the system of ushering for student assemblies in Bovard auditorium. Assembly ushers will be asked to make an effort to induce Trojans to take seats toward the front of the auditorium during entertainments to expedite seating of late comers. A fall social program, reported upon last week, will also be adopted at the session today. Norman Thomas Urges Ministers To Form Union Norman Thomas, Socialist presi-dedntial candidate, left by airplane for Salt Lake City yesterday after addressing 400 ministers and their wives with a plea to “organize for political action.” A union of preachers to be affiliated with the American Federation of Labor was suggested by the candidate, adding they shoul agree to “make a gang rush for a pulpit vacated when some fellow pastor is fired for preaching the truth.” Thomas, himself a former Presbyterian minister, declared such action “would help the preachers, and possibly the A. F. of L.” He added that Socialism and even Communism “are conservative compared with the real teachings of Christianity.” Even Socialism, he said, does not tell us to “sell your belongings and give to the poor.” Advertisers To Meet Tomorrow Alpha Delta Sigma, national advertising fraternity, is holding its first meeting of the year at the College Inn on Wednesday night at 6:00 p.m. with C. H. Mayne, one of the outstanding men in the field of food advertising, as guest speaker.

Long, does not drink coffee and he thinks that his friend Roosevelt is an “overwhelming feller;” he likes New York, but he will not have his photograph taken while wearing pajamas; he has never been unkind or ungentleman-ly to a woman. This and a lot more information was divulged by the Louisiana “Kingfish” as he sat on the bed in his room at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel today and held impromtu court for the press. His estimate of Roosevelt was the result of yesterday’s visit with the Democratic presidential candidate, the first time they had met. He coupled it with the observation that “Hoover is just a big cipher with the ring rubbed off.” This gave him considerable enjoyment and he decided he might as well eat on it. He got the telephone operator on tbe wire. “Honey,’ he said, “see if you can get me a double order of orange juice’ And what do you have in the way of vegetables? All right some sliced peaches. And a big bowl of bran . . . hell, honey, I don’t drink coffee.” The “kirifcfish” volunteered that he had told Roosevelt he didn’t need to speak In the South. “They all are going to vote for him anyway,” he said. “I told him they bucked the traces four years ago. but they wish they could take It back now.” The senator denied the radical lable which some have attached to him. “I’m a conservative,” he said. ‘The radicals are people out of office.” The tousled«red head of the senator disappeared quickly under the sheets when a suggestion was made that he might like to have his picture taken while wearing pajamas. “I'll be damned if you do,” he said. “You won’t get out of here alive if you do. No siree! They did that once and I never heard j the last of it And listen, fellers, these are cottoo. pajamas.** i Aeneas To Hold Exchange Dinner Spanish dancers from La Gol-ondrlna cafe and Hawaiian guitarist will provide the entertain^ ment for the exchange dinner to be held at Aeneas hall for th® residents of the Womens’ Residence hall tonight Marionette and Ricardo from tha Olvera street cafe will present a rouUne consisting of Spanish dances and songs in the lobby of Aeneas hall following the dinner.
