Election Is Like Bomb Hard Times Indirect Cause Thinks Stewart RIOTS MENACE By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON Nov 15 CFA1 times may or may not have been the di rect cause of the other days elec tion result Personally I think not not directly Indirectly yes however If it had not been for hard times 1 think that millions of voters who evi dently voted their convictions o n Nov 4 would have felt that they could not af ford to vote such convictions While prosperity lasted I think that no policy which the party in power could have conjured up would have induced a majority of the vot ers to vote against the party in power They may not have been very sure that they were beholden to the party in power for all the prosperity they were enjoying but neither were they sure that they were not beholden to it They were not taking any chances With prosperity gone flooey they could vote as they chose to and possibly would have liked to vote in 1928 or even 1924 maybe In the sense that hard times ac cording to my humble calculations set the voters free to vote to suit themselves last election day hard times may be said then indirectly 1 to have influenced the result most fact decisively
