TAKES CONVENTION HELM TODAY Zioiieheek Goes To iNew Refuge Arkansas Senator, Election as Chairman Delayed, Speaks Anyway PHILADELPHIA. June 25. (UP) —For t'ne first time In the memory of Democrats the permanent chairman of a national convention made his speech before he became permanent chairman. Senator Joseph T. Robinson should have been elected chairman before lie six>ke lost night but the credentials committee was busy adjudicating a dispute between rival delegations from Minnesota and could not report in time to permit tlie election of any porA'neiit officials. But the radio time was reserved, I'ne delegates were assembled, the galleries were packed, so Robinson spoke anyway—as delegate from Arkansas. He was elected permanent chairman today after the credentials committee reported it, decided to seat both Minnesota delegations giving one-half vote to each. Hits nt High Court The Issue of the 'constitution and (lie courts tonight was thrown more strongly than ever Into the campaign as Senator Robinson asserted that some of the supreme f.ourfs decisions had had "the effect of slowing up national recovery." ( Robinson, after stirring applause v.'lth his praise of President Roosevelt, and his lashing of Governor Lnndon and other anti-New Deal- ists, turned directly to the supreme court. He asserted thai "in .spite of" its rulings, the nation , was going forward. He added: "We recognize that decisions of supreme court until - reversed bre final, nnd we abide by them. S>'cvertlie!ess,U_we~ do-^iot -i reajrd (he "court— aff' above • nnt^~ueyomf those factors antl causes which naturally influence the minds of human beings.'
