Focuses on issues related to Gubernatorial election in New York City. Report that three weeks before Election Day the voters by every outward sign were blandly indifferent, Tammany was jubilant and the conglomerate good-government folk disappointed; View that these sentiments were because of small registration; Speculation that Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia will win; View that the heart of Mayor's support is New Deal and he will get the rank and file of devoted New Dealers; Report that LaGuardia has won from the Republicans not only the party nomination but the eager, hard-working support of his old enemy, Thomas K Dewey, and the enthusiastic good will of politician Wendell Willkie; View that the opposing candidate, District Attorney William O'Dwyer of Brooklyn, is as good a man as the organization possessed; Report that most of the newspaper reporters regularly watching city politics privately confirm that LaGuardia will win.
