CHICAGO, June 30. The Democratic national convention early today came around to Connecticut's way of thinking about the Eighteenth Amendment when it adopted in its platform a plank which calls for repeal. While Connecticut did no talking some cf its delegataes went Into one parad" with the State standard, and all s'ood cn chairs at times keyed up to high pitch cf enthusiasm. Ey Ths Associated Pros-a CHICAGO. June 30. Scores on scores of Democratic women were crediting their sex today with Jubilantly riding even spurring the donkey to its new radical-wet stand. That's how much they reveled in the tidal wave which inundated the convention last night. Thev said so with votes and they shouted it into microphones to increase the drama of the roil call. Two gave soprano obligates to the wet chorus from the platform. Altogether their performance was one of the most striking aspects cf the show. True, women snatched the Arkansas placard and tore it to bits to prevent its being swept into the wet parade. There must have been others who felt the same way about it. But they were like the proverbial needle in that soaking haystack, and the only word of disapproval heard came Irom Mrs. Edith O'Keefe Susans of Tennessee.

MAY FEY TO CHICAGO IF NAMED CANDIDATE PLEDGED TO GARNER The Democratic Platform I EDITOR S SOTE This is the thortcst platform ever written in the United Stat" by a major political party It contains about words: actual reading time, sir minutet. The. Republican platform contained approx imately S000 u-ords; actual reading tirne more than half an hour, Louisiana Breaks Unit Rule. CHICAGO, June SC. The Louis delegation broke the un.t rule cast 17 votes for repeal and i&na and fica- votes for resubmission to the people cf the prohibition problem without recommendation. After the vote had been cast. Senator Huey Lone announced that the breaking cf the unit rule had been Walmsley cf New Orleans, and that he would cast the 23 Louisiana votes fcr repeal and modification. But just before the vcting was clored. he said the delegation would let the original vcte stand. In this time of unprecedented economic and social distress, the Democratic party declares it convictions that the chief causes of this condition were the disastrous policies pursued by our Government since the World War, of economic isolation, fostering the merger ot competitive businesses into monopolies, and encouraging the Indefensible expansion and contraction of credit for private profit at the expense of the public. Those who were responsible for these policies have abandoned the ideals cn which the war was won. and thrown away the fruits rf victory, thus rejecting the greatest opportunity in history to bring peace, prosperity and happiness to our people and to the world. They have ruined our foreign trade, destroyed (he values of our commodities and products, crippled our banking system, robbed millions of our people of their life savings and thrown million more out of work, produced uldo-pre ad poverty and brought the Government to a state of financial distress unprecedented in timrs of peaie. The only hope for improving present conditions, restorlnc employment, affording permanent relief to the people, and brlneing the nation back to its former proud ivsition of domestic happiness and of financial, industrial, agricultural and commercial leadership in the world lies in a drastic change in economic and governmental ilicies. Believing that a party platform is a covenant with the people to be f. -villi -fully kept by the partv when entrusted with power, and that the peoplo are (entitled to know in plain wnrds the terms of the contract to which they arc I asked to subscribe, we hereby declare this to be the PLATFORM OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

"I always said. then, the prohibitionists were entitled to a fair trial. Well, they've had it and the few fanatics left have been overwhelmed.

Continuous publicity of iviijtjral contributions f,nrj expenditures, strengthening of the corrupt practices act, and severe penalties for mis appropriation of campaign funds. 17. We favor the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment. .To effect such repeal, we demand that :onrea immediately propose a Constitutional amendment to purely representative conventions In the States called to act solely on that proposal. We urie the enactment of turn measures by the several States as will actually promote temperance, effectively prevent the rrturn of the saloon and brln the liquor traffic into the open under complete supervision and control by the States. We demand that the Federal Government effectively exercise Its power to enable the States to effectually protect themselves against importation of Intoxicating liquors In violation of their laws. Pending repeal, we favor immediate modification of the Volstead Art to legalize the manufacture and sale of beer and other beverates of such alcoholic content as Is permissible under the Constitution and to provide therefrom a proper and needed revenue. We condemn: 1. The improper and excessive use of money in political 2. Paid lobbies of special interests to influence members of Congress and other public servants by personal contact. 3. Action and utterances of high public officials designed to influence stock exchange prices. 4. The open and covert resistance of administrative officials to every effort made by Congressional committees to curtail the extravagant expenditures of the Government, and to revoke improvident subsidies granted to favored interests. 5. The extravagance of the Farm Board, its disastrous action which made me government a speculator in farm procucts, and the unsound rxilicy cf restricting agricultural production to the demands of domestic markets 6. The usurpation of power by the State Department tn assuming to pas upon foreign securities offered by international bankers, as a result of which billions of dollars in questionable bonds have been sold to the public upon the Implied approval of the Federal Government. 7. The Hawley-Smoot tariff law, the prohibitive raie3 of which have resulted in retaliatory action by more than 40 countries, created international economic hostilities, dest-oyed international trade, driven our factories into foreign countries, robbed the American farmer of his foreign markets and increased his cost of production. Conclusion: To accomplish these purposes and to recover economic liberty we pledge the nominees of this convention and the best effort of a great parly whose founder announced the doctrine which guides us now in the hour of our country's need "equal rights to all, special privileges to none." tlon" of the ' fcrre x e:v" F!ghenh by a Ter d rr er.

The delegation may want to do aome nominating of its own and anyhow doesn't want itself to appear recorded just yet at least for Roosevelt. Therefore John W. Davis, and George W. Olvany and Max D.

The minority record of the Oklahoma delegation was 100 per cent as the fourth dEy cf the Democratic national convention opened, albeit the group's voting has b-en consistent with the policies of its leader. Governor W. H. Murray. "'At least we have been consistent," declared the delegate as the Sooners recorded a solid vote early today in approving the minority liquor plank which Murray had supported as a member of the resolutions committee. Undaunted by the chorus of boos that came from the galleries as their vcte was announced, the Oklahomans were prepared to go down the line today on the remainder of the minority propositions, most of which were drawn up by their chairman, who is a candidate for the Presidential nomination. Ey Tr. Associated Prtis CHICAGO STADIUM. June 30. John J. Raskob is a happy man today happy that the Democratic Party convention has come to the wet views he has so long espoused, and upon which it split wide open four years ago. Sitting quietly by himself m the. huge stadium he smiled more and more broadly as the result cf the overwhelming wet vote piled up on the momentous roll call. Retiring as chairman of tlox- Democratic National Committee after contributing in six figures to finance his party in the past four years and devoting much of his time and energy In bringing the fragments of Jt together, he considered his time and money well spent. "It is fine, the result," lie said In his mild voice. "I am h8ppy." "I think," he continued in a self eflacing and almost embarrassed way, "that Congress may proceed now with confidence. This repeal plank gives an opportunity to the people to vote on a perfectly simple and clear cut question. If the result of the vote in November is that they want repeal, Congress can proceed with a great sense of security in a liberalizing of the Volstead Act that will not classify light wines and beer as intoxicating liquor. . "It w ill thus enable society to secure light wines and beer. Haa No Political Flans. "When Congress meets in December, this in turn will enable the Government, through the levying of excise taxes to secure vast revenues that will relieve to a great extent the heavy burdens cn the taxpayers." Raskob said he did not expect to be chairman of the national committee after the end of the convention. Asked if he expected to continue in poll-tics, he smiled and replied 1 "I have no plans." Was the result of his time and money worth while? Raskod smiled and said, course," What the Candidates Are Doing By Th AMOcUUd Press of June Jottings.

Asked again about reports he might fly to Chicago, he said he was going on a quintet bicycle, with his four sons behind him. Alfred E. Smith. The former Governor got a little rest after leading the fight for repeal with a crackling speech and getting an ovation that rocked the hall. Listeners noticed that it is still "raddio" to the 1928 nominee. Albert C. Ritchie. The crowd gave the Maryland Governor an ovation, too, when he took the platform to conclude the attack for the repeal forces.
