Y., Nov. 4 To a nation living in "the sun light and star light of peace" President Roosevelt asserted tonight that the right of the people to choose their own officers of government provides for them "the most powerful safeguard of our democracy." He spoke in an election eve broadcast from his country home, after declaring in a statement that he Awaitexi the veaxiict of the electorate tomorrow "in full confidence of vihdicaticn of the principles and policies on which we have fought the campaign." "After the ballots are counted," Mr. Roosevelt told the country in his broadcast, "the United States of America will still be united." "rtiere is every indication, he said, that the number of votes cast tonwrrow will be by far the greatest bi American history. "That is the proof-if proof be needed-of the vitality of our democracy," he asserted. The obligation of the pewple to their country does not nd'With the casting of votes, he added, as "eyery one of us has a continuing responsibility for the government which we choose." Democracy, the President said, is not "just a wHjrd, to be shouted at political rallys and then put back into the dictionary after election day." Mr. Roo6?velt spoke from the study of his home overlkx>king the Hudson river. Earlier in the evening, before a crowd gathered on the busiest street of nearby Poughkeepsie, the Chief Ex-cutive made his final public appearance before the election and said: "To you the men and women of my home county, I speak for the last time here on Market Street on the �ve of an election." (Continued on Page 10, Col. J) Vote Today! Voters To Decide Issues the great third decide whethei" (By The Associated Press) By its votes, America will settle term question today (Tuesday) and Franklin D. Pvoosevelt or Wendell L. Willkie shall occupy the White House in the four years ahead. Some 50,000,000 citizens, by all indications, aie expected to crowd the polling places. This would be a i-ec-ord number, attesting the nation's unusually intense interest in the outcome of a hotly contested campaign. In addition to a President and Vice President, 35 membens of the Senate will be cliosen together with 432 members of the House of Representatives and state and local officials by the hundreds. The campaign came to a bustling conclusion last night in an out-pouring of oratory that loaded the air waves for several successive hours. Final appeals to the electorate from botii Willkie and Roosevelt, as well as addresses by the Vice Presidential candidates, Charles L. McNary and Henry A. Wallace, were on the program. For President Roosevelt, the day before election saw him making a series of informal addi^ses in tjfie course of a motor tour along the Hudson river New York. In advance of its delivery, his election-eve speech from Hyde Park was expected to be an appeal that all eligible voters cast their ballots. At Beacon, N. Y., Mr. Roosevelt told a crowd that this was the last time he would be visiting them as "a candidate for office." This, he said, was "not a campaign speech, but a visit of sentiment." (Continued on Page 10, Col. 7) Vote Today I _ (By The Associated Press) COLUMBUS, Nov. 4-Weai-y, perspiring candidcites, exhausted by Ohio's fiercest political battle in perhaps 44 years, sheathed their woixis tonight and awaited judgment of the voters. Tlie veixiict will be written tomonrow on a recoixi-breaking 3,500,000 ballots, tlie secretaiy of state estimated. Cloudy, mild weather, with possible scattered show-ei-s in the afternoon, is forecast. The voters, trooping to the poUs in 8,675 precincts between 6:30 a. m., and 6:30 p. m., have the job of selecting a President an-d Vice President, a governor, a United States Senator, six state officers, three supreme court judges, 24 Congressmen, 172 membei-s of tiie legislature, and "hundreds of county officials. Last-minute appeals for support blared from radios until midnight and beyond. Not since the Bryan-McKinley campaign of 1896 has Ohio political activity been so intense, veteran observers said. And probably never bef6re in the state's history have the voters been besieged by such conflicting developments and criss-crossing of party lines. The heterogenous picture includes,: Wendell L. Willkie, an Akron Dernocratic campaigner in 1982, running for President as the Republican candidate ; George WTiite, ex-Democratic governor, campaign* thg for Willkie after voting for the renomination ot (ontlnued on Page 10, Col. 6) Vote Today! By WILLIAM B. ARDERt NEW YORK, Nov. 4 (iP)-Wendell L. Willkie . coupled tonight an eleventh hour appeal for all citizens to vote with an assertion that "apathy undermines liberty." The Republican Presidential nominee, smiling and appearing conffdent, said in a prepared radio address (CBS) that "the greatest danger to democracy is that all the citizens, who have the final authority, may become careless about it." "They x x x take for granted many of our democratic institutions," he said. "They forget that suCh ' institutions must be constantly guarded." Terming it "the sacred duty" of all to vote in tomorrow's election, Willkie asked that no one let bad weather keep him from the polling booth. "The issue may depend upon whether or not you are willing to make a trip through rain or snow to the polling place." he added. This was the second of three radio talks scheduled by the candidate for election eve. In an afternoon address he declared that his every act as President would be designed "to keep this country out of foreign wars, and to keep it at peace." Willkie remained all afternoon and evening at his personal headquarters in the Hotel Commodore in order ^ to draft his final speeches. In his mid-evening talk, he said that it was a "false and dangerous" argument to contend that the  two-term tradition should be violated "on the grounds . that we are faced with an international crises." "To thrust aside that tradition is to assume that only one man has the ability to take us through recurring emergencies," Willkie continued. "That means Continued on Page 10, Col. 2) Vote Today I BOARD MAKES FINAL PLANS FOR ELECTION Vote Supplies Delivered, N 0 Changes In Precincts. .Everything was in readiness last night for balloting in the 62 Erie^ and Sandusky precincts.

Workers Total 378 An army of 872 workers will take the city and county vote. There will be six workers for each booth, three Republicans and three Democrata. Election board officials said laat night they expected 19,000 votes "at least". This would represent a record turnout. The strain of the campaign through, workers held Informal parties at campaign headqiiarters^ night. Some candidates got in last minute licks. Election parties were being arranged for many parts of the city and county tonight. Sandusky'e registration is. 12,490, an all-time high. At lea^t 10,000 of these are expected to vote.

In our country we still have the right to choose those who govern us and thus determine the policies which our government shall pursue. Unfortunately in the past large numbers of our citizeni �T0 KEEP HEN FREE" have been indifferent to their right and responsibility of voting. My final appeal to tlie American people in this campaign is that every man and woman eligible to vote do so today. No other duty or engagement can be naore important at this critical hour in world affairs than that of going to your polling place to participate with your neighbors in the selection of those men and women who m\\ govern this country. If all men and women perform their duty as citizens by voting today, not only shall we strengthen our American system of government but we shall give a demonstration to the world of the manner in which democracy can func* tion to keep men free." Ekction Eve Speeches CLEVELAND, Nov. 4 (^)-Thomas F. Dewey declared tonight "if the third-term campaign slaould be succesful," "each day of the next four years" would be "a living affront to those who created this republic, to those who gave us our freedom." "Every day would bring us more reprisals against business, against the press, against all those who dare to disagiee," the New York district attorney asserted. "Every day would bring new appeasements to those who hate our country - appeasement for the Communists and the fellow travelers on the federal payroll. Every day would fasten new shackles upon the independence of the Congress, x x x "Each day would bring us closer to the point when every federal WEATHER FOUECAST (By V. a.

These are the things of which dictatorship is made." Dewey appeared on the same Cleveland public hall platform from which President Roosevelt spoke Saturday night. His address, billed by Cleveland Republican leaders a; the answer to Mr. Roosevr�lt's talk, was prepared for broadcast nationally (NBC-red). The President's contained "the usual hymn of hate directed at those who build thi> factories, who make new jobs." Dew^y continued. "And there also were those straw men he loves to set up and then knock down But this time there were new straw men.

JOHN U LEWIS WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 W)-John L. Lewis, CIO chairman, ones again urged the election of Wendell Willkie tonight, declaring in a orief midnight broadcast (NEC) that the reelection of President Roosevelt would result In war. "Neither President Roosevelt, nor any spokesman for his administration," Lewis said in his prepared text, "has been intellectually capable of making answer" to the charges he made in his first speech opposing the President's reelection. "Their response have been confined to violent--per-onal criticism, abuse and slander of this speaker. "I assert again that the r�. election of President Roosevelt will result in the nation's involvement in war." Lewis said- Willkie Leads In First Count SHARON, N.
