These are some highlights from the News Journal on November 2, 1932:

National headlines

‘Hoover Plans Campaign Drive Across Continent Finishing In California’

“WASHINGTON (AP) — Plans for President Hoover to wind up his sixth campaign tour beginning tomorrow with a dash to his home in California to vote election day were shaping rapidly today at the White House.” More than 30,000 persons massed in Reyburn Plaza, Philadelphia to hear President Hoover over the weekend.

‘Roosevelt To End Campaign In New York’

“ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Governor Roosevelt today prepared for the final bid of his presidential campaign with a weekend of speech making in New York City. He returned to the capital last night after a whirlwind three-day motor trip through all of the six New England states.”

‘Former Boxing Champion Says Other States Point To Ohio As Example’

“DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Gene Tunney, former heavyweight boxing champion of the world, told a Democratic rally at Dayton that after November 8, the Republican party ‘would not be able to get up in 14 years, let alone 14 seconds’, recalling the so-called ‘long count’ in his fight with Jack Dempsey in Chicago.”

• “NEW YORK (AP) — Bronko Nagurski, plunging fullback of the Chicago Bears, now leads the field in the race for ground gaining honors in the National Professional Football League.”

Locally

• “Herbert C. Davis, 7-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Davis of A Street and New York Avenue, succumbed Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. after a week’s illness of scarlet fever.”

• “Theft of more than 48 chickens from the farm of Richard Clark, New Vienna, was reported to Sheriff Gus J. Miller. The chicken theft was the first reported in the county for several weeks. County officers are investigating.”

• “A new service designed to reduce the cost of telephone toll call service to subscribers in Wilmington and Clinton County was announced Wednesday by the Clinton Telephone Company. Coupon books were sent out to each subscriber. Each book contains six coupons, each of which can be used in payment for one five-minute station-to-station message originating at the particular exchange of the company to which the book of coupons applies and terminating at those exchanges of the company which are directly adjacent to the originating exchange, including Blanchester, Clarskville, Martinsville, New Vienna and Port William.”

• Although the Wilmington High School and Wilmington College football teams hadn’t lost on the same day for a decade, “With the high school Hurricane engaging Hillsboro here Friday afternoon and the College Tornado meeting the strong Findlay eleven Saturday afternoon, old man dope points to a double loss this time.”
