windup of a sizzling campaign in a closely contested state Both Sides Confident Both Bides speak confidently of the outlook but neglect no honest oppor tunlty to turn a vote Both are check ing and rechecklng reports from coun ty and precinct captains and both frankly concede that it Is difficult this year to get at the precise outlines ol the situation Such a picture of contradictions and uncertainties is thoroly consistent with Marylands past performances in presidential years Twice within the last quarter of a 1904 and result in thestate has been so close that the electoral vote was split Just be fore that Marylandvoted twice for McKinley and just afterward it voted twice for Wilson It went republican by in the Harding landslide and republican again by in the Coolidgre landslide In the face of these recent republi can pluralities the democrats have cherished a hope that a combination of elements will work for victory for Governor Smith Like New York Maryland has not seen fit

certain other considerations have taken their places in the picture Many of the counties outside Balti more are dry and are appealed to no jr for the first time in a presidential campaign on the prohibition issue It happens that some of the dryest are the normally democratic and strongly Methodist counties on Marylands eastern In that section Bishop Cannon has spokpn against Smith and many Meth odist ministers are active on behalf oC Hoover The widest discussion of iovernor Smiths religion likewise is apparent altho the republicans dis claim any connection with that Issue In addition the states democratic leaders are passing thru a factional flffht the possible efect of which on Nov 6 is disputed To partially offset their admitted losses In the eastern ahors counties and other democratic the democrats expect to win the votes of many Catholic republican wets and they eypect a very large defection amongthe normally republican Negro voters of the state numbering some Chief

clothing was soaked PLANE RIDES ARE NO DEAFNESS CURE PHYSICIANS CLAIM ST is utterly illogical to expect that hearing can be restored or even bettered by airplane dives according to officials at the school of medicine of ton university here A number of per sons thruout the United states have resorted to such drastic procedure in recent months in the hope of restor ing their hearing The ear Is one ofthe most com plex organs of the human said an expert In laryngology How com plex is indicated by the fact that the spiral ligament in the labyrinth of the ear is composed of fibers and the spiral ligament compared with the whole mechanism of hearing is as a screw to a dirigible Hearing is im paired or destroyed only by the de struction of some material portion of this intricate mechanism Once de stroyed no human agency can restore that portion So In effect what one who plunges in an airplane Is expecting Is that something that is gone will be brot back It would be as sensible for a onelegged man to plunge and ex pect when he reached the ground that he would have two legs There is only one exception That is hysterical deafness The treatment there is identical with treatment in general ahock or fright Hysterical deafness how ever is rare It might be Instantly cured by fright attending an airplane under stunts Jast as it might be cured by rousing the patient to great anger br

to the public The cathedral has been closed two years since the Mexican religious laws became effective and the con troversy between church and govern ment became acute It has been as sumed that the cathedral would be reopened whenever that dispute was adjusted and possibly before But now engineers say Its walls and foundations are dangerously weak and that recent earthquakes have Increased their instability In consequence the government ordered that it continue closed indefinitely If walla and foundations can be so re inforced that fear of collapso Is re moved that order issued for the pro
