But the mere fact the potential vote to insure victory is there does not mean victory is in the bag. Often favorable pre-election statistics breed and result in unexpected and bit- ter defeat. That could easily happen in Nevada, unless Demo- crats are careful A split in party ranks engi- neered by clever political opposi- tion, toof-bitter primary battles, whispering campaigns, any one of a number of things can easily bring about a near-rout and con- sequent defeat at the polls. The Democratic in Nevada is nice to think about, but party unity is far safer to depend upon. SPEAKING OF politics, that third term talk for Roosevelt is mostly Republican propaganda. True, an emergency might arise that would force Roosevelt to offer his serwces-io the-.cauntry- for' another four years, but chances of such a thing are re- mote. Republicans would like noth- ing better then to get Roosevelt to split his party wide open by seeking a third term, as did the first Roosevelt. We honestly be- lieve F. D.

In thirty-two states, there have been fewer highway and auto- mobile deaths this year than in 1937. And Nevada leads the entire United States in the 18.7 per cent. The only other state that comes remotely close is South Carolina, boasting a de- crease of 17.9 per cent Fifteen states show an increase, and one state shows no change. Nevada may well be proud oi its highway casualty record, and vigilance during the remaining months of the year should be maintained, so that when the new year dawns, we may lay claim NEW YORK, Aug. Powerful Jimmy Hines, the ruddy-faced ex-blacksmith whose political prestige was so formid- able during the hey-day of Tam- many Hall that a crook of his finger could send a man to suc- cess or damnation, sat, in a sweltering courtroom Wednesday and heard himself called a crook. He sat, immobile as a graven Buddha, while a slender, black- eyed young man stood before jury and shot swift verbal darts and every dart found its' mark in Jimmy Hines. in Racket It was the opening of the trial for which all New York has wsiited James J.

Stan Laurel, pickle-laced little screen comic, Wednesday was given his walking papers at Hal Roach studio which immediately signed Harry Langdon to form a new team with rotund Oliver Hardy. Laurel, Hardy's screen partner for many years, was dropped from the payroll after leaving town before completing retakes on their latest picture, "Block Heads." Langdon, the "baby faced comedian" of silent and early talkie days, has been working as a writer on the Roach lot. He was given a screen test which Executives' Producer Milton Bren pro- nounced "amazingly satisfactory." The new team of Hardy and Langdon, according to Roach, "will do only full-length features. and'' if Dewey his "fighf gainst Hines, it was the general? >elief it -would send the 48-iyear-, Id regime of Tammany Hall crashing into the discard.
