Landon unanimously, in a national broadcast last night, of hypocrisy, evasiveness and shadow boxing in his address last Thursday accepting the Republican nomination for president. The Democratic national committee sponsored the broadcast as the opening gun of a radio war in which both parties will be engaged by Sept. i on a scale previously unequalled. Each of the governors spoke from the capital or a metrop olis of his own state. Participants were Theodore F Green, Rhode Island; George H Earle, Pennsylvania; Henry Horner Illinois; Clyde L. Herring, luwa R.' L. Cochran, Nebraska; Charles -R. Martin, Oregon. Among them they accused Go\ Landon of parsimony in administer ing Kansas relief, of damaging th Kansas school system to make a economy record, of praising an aping the New Deal in 1934 bu "red Augustine Comes Ou First In Competitions Of, State Dept. condemning it in 1936, of being al lied with steel, oil and financial interests against the interests of the majoirty of Americans, and of evading commitment to concrete policies. "There were a few places in Gov. Landon's address," said Gov. Green, "where he appeared to get down to cases. But w.Vn he did, he raised more questions than he settled. I gathered that he was for some sort of social security. 'We shall amend the social security act', he declared, ·to make it workable.' What are the amendments he proposes to make it workable?

Homer said the midwest was "frankly disappointed" by the initial campaign speech of a man pictured as "a strong, srlent man." -We found that he was. indeed, a 'silent' man/' Homer said, "silent on the true issues of the campaign and even more silent as to the policies he intended u carry out." "Gov. Landon holds that the federal government has been unable to solve the problem of unemployment and the presumption is that he expects private industry to succeed,'" Gov. Earle said. "Let us consider an example, the steel industry. Gov. Landon may be familiar with that, since his uncle, William T. Mossman, is ttie chief lobbyist in Harrisburg for the Pennsylvania steel masters. "The Pennsylvania steel industry is booming today as it has never boomed since the world war. Yet employment lags.
