FRIDAY, MAY 15, 1936 n me is Alfred E. Smith and Senator Borah Arc Potential Political Rebels BLYTHEVILLB, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Giant Spillway Protects New Orleans Front Floods Ily KYLE C. WILSON Vnitcil I'resn Staff Corespondent WASHINGTON (UP)—Shadows have fallen on three of the four outstanding national political figures and Iwo of them are sus Meted of plans to bolt or walk out on tlie Presidential nominees of theli- party next, month. Tlie Iwo outstanding Democrats of 1936 are unquesllonably President Roosevelt and Alfred E. Smith. Tlie Repiiblicuii party offers former President Hoover and Sen. William E. IJonili. Other |x>- litlcally potent Republicans and Democrats are, no more llian prominent members of I tlieir respective parties. A President's control over his own party is sufficient to insure his re-nomination, Mr. Roosevelt, Vi'ill be Hie Democratic nominee by formal action' of Ihe Philadelphia convention on June 25 or June 26. H Is n paradox of politics thai neither Mr. Hoover nor Senator Borah Is likely to be chosen by the Republicans who meet In Cleveland June 9. The GOP choice probably will be made from among the group of merely prominent men of whom Gov. Air M.I Liuton of Kansas, Sen. Arthur H | Vamlenbery of Michigan, nnd Sell Frederick Slciwer, of Oregon, are excellent and available examples. Tlie advantage lies heavily with Ijmdon. tlurah Prospective IJolfcr The prospective bolters are Smith ami Borah. The former has publicly .stated the alternalives he must confront when Mr. Roosevelt is re-noininatccl. Smith said he would be compelled either "to take a walk" or "mil on the mail- j ner of hypocrisy." Smith will walk, j Thu question interesting to politicians is with whom he will travel and to what destination. Smith has been.elected a Tammany delegate lo Ihe Democratic National Convention. It is understood that his friends are suggesting that he not attend. A convention packed with New Deal enthusiasts probably would give the one-time Democratic Idol a booed 'reception which would tarnish Ills memory of earlier political triumpivs.. "•Bui whether: SmitV goes lo the convention ami gives physical evidence, of, : hts,j)6lt i% by striding, from the chamber^or 'merely refuses to appear, he must .Vdecide quickly] thereafter to fight" or 'sulk, it Cintth 'decide:; to fight he may raise tlie standard of conservative Democracy and lead a third party ticket .into the field. Or, he may complete his bolt by backing the Republican nominee. An easier would, be to retire from Ihe arena, a sorrowing spectator of ihe great political'battle. Smith has not intimated what he will do. Ely Abandons Figbt Former Gov. Joseph B. Ely, one of Smith's anti-Roosevelt allies now as in 1932, planned n frontal attack on the New Deal in Mas- snclnrselLs. He hoped lo put an anti-Roosevelt slate of convention delegates into the Massachusetts primary contest. But the futility of that plan became apparent and it was abandoned. Smith, Ely, former Sen. James A. Reed of Missouri, and other anti-New Deal Democrats decided finally to postpone until after both political conventions their effort -to prevent Mr. Roosevelt's re-election. They should be heard from shortly afl- cr the Democrats adjourn next month. Silence would indicate j;ur render. Borah's position is definite. He is a candidate 'for Republican Presidential nomination. In tiiat capacity lie challenged Landon and all others to meet him in Presidential primary contests. Borah has told voters in half a dozen states that the elcclion of un- \VKKKLY SUNDAY SCHOOL l.MSSON— Jesus Inspires i;. (jiutov, ;t. ii.

I.amiuti Declines Challenge _I.andon reiused to meet Borah frank Knox of Chicago and Borah contested the Illinois primary but the result was indecisive. Borah already has lost his fight to compel Presidential aspirants to go before primary voters with their records and their stories.

In early" April he was ask- [ ed point blank what he intended i to do if an Old Guard candidate were nominated. "I shall be entirely free to make] up my mind then," Borah replied.] "I reserve my right to look over the convention job when It is done, and the man."
