Landon platform drafters ran Into revolt over a proposed farm plank today and hopes of cooperative effort by Senator William E. Uorah dwindled when his aide, former Senator John Thomas, of Idaho, declined the key post of chairman of thc Republican resolutions committee. Trouble developed also over suggestions for a monetary plank, on which Borah has demanded Unit Governor Landon make clear his position. Tile Thomas refusal was regarded as a blow to hopes of Landon managers to obtain friendly cooperation of Borah in writing the Republican 1936 platform. Today Thomas said dcnnitclj that it would be impossible for him to serve in that post. Stciwer For Vice-President A group of slates controlling 200 votes has postponed caucus arrangements, possibly in an effort lo exert pressure on Landon to bid Borah a final goodbye. One of these slates is New York and another is California. The Landon men arc conlident they can manage the rebellion as it has developed so far.

The old' man remained silent as to his disappearance and seemed to resent file activities of officers who were asked by relatives to search for him. Rice said. Walter, postmaster at Whisp for many years, was said to have had considerable money on his person possibly about $200. When he could ! not be found there was suspicion that he might have met with foul play or committed suicide. The suicide theory had been given credence because of a note members of his family said I'ney had found in a record book at his home in which he snid that when t was fouV3j he would "be with and mother." Chief Rica took steps to notify Valter's relatives of his re-appearance here following the meeting estcrday. It Is understood, how- vcr, that they had already heard bat he was alive and safe.
