President Herbert Hoover on the campaign trail in Des Moines Iowa. A banner across a main street shows his picture and reads "Iowa Welcomes You". A motorcade carrying the President, is accompanied by supporters walking alongside. Spectators on both sides of the streets watch the President pass by. Some confetti can be seen floating in the air. The President waves from his car. The State Capitol building appears in the background. Citizens disappointed with current economic hard times make their feelings known by following the Presidents motorcade in trucks, motorcars and on horseback. Farm workers in a truck send their message on a sign reading "Hoovers Farm Relief. First - Foreclosure. Then -This". A sign on the back of another truck reads 'In Hoover We Trusted, Now We Are Busted'. Two men ride horses carrying signs on the horses' rear ends reading: "Hoover Put Us Here".
