The fellow with the polka-
In case you can't guess, he's Alfred Emanuel Smith, never seen without a cigar, the fellow who might have been President in 1928 if Herbert Hoover hadn't polled so many votes.
He arrived in San Francisco last night at the Southern Pacific depot with his wife and Mr. and Mrs. Orrie Kelly. Mr. Kelly is president of the Lawyers Trust Company Bank, of which Al is a director.
It was a big event for all kinds of Democrats and Mayor Rossi. Hundreds of admirers of the nation's No. 1 Smith jammed the depot. Mrs. Rossi gave Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Kelly armfuls of sweet peas. (Her husband's a florist.)
The party went to the St. Francis Hotel, where Mr. Smith said all he
intends to say while vacationing in San Francisco
Today they are touring the Bay Area. Tomorrow will be "Al Smith Day" at the Exposition, starting with a reception at the City Hall at 11 a.m. At 12:30 p.m. Al Smith will talk at the Open Air Theater on Treasure Island. After a private lunch he will tour the island, then receive friends at 4 p.m. at the San Francisco Building.
