Even though he is backed by the Oitice All powerful tammany Hall. It will be interesting to follow the fight which will certainly be a fight. You know a Large following and is quite Anfir Ator he is a one of the worlds Best dressed men is no doubt very popular with the Vot her of the fairer sex so a Van though Smith and roof Tevelt i oppose him he a will surely make a creditable ski Viring regardless of the record he made in a office Kwh it the investigation disposed or would have told had he not tendered his resignation before the governor had a Chance to Tell him a whether he thought him a a fit to run the biggest town in the u. S. A. Besides the. Governor will have his hands full trying to beat Hoover on the same Day Jimmy will go to but for his old and familiar Job so you see there is certain Tomb offs hot time in the big town november 8, 1932�o done to be surprised if Jimmy Walker wins twelve straight the a Anliss led by their twin Batter ing rams Ruth and Gerhig bowled the hapless and helpless cubs chicag Oover.
