Let me cite two related bits of evidence and you will have a clue concerning question: the answer to that Even if a President were eager to m a k e good on platform or campaign pledges, he cannot coerce an unwilling Congress, nor can a bare congressional majority force through legislation vetoed by the occupant of the. White House. As a consequence, p l a t f o r m pledges are far more conspicuous in b r e a c h than in observance.

A car driven by Floyd Knapp of Nashua going north collided with ne driven by Roger White of lainficld, going east, at an inter- ection where corn obstructed the ·ision of the drivers. Riding with the Knapps were rlr. · and Mrs. Bert Allison of Nashua. Allison was thrown seven cet from the car and suffered a pelvic bone and bead In- tor Byrd and Senator Robertson usually tread the same path, the| senior senator had declined to take a stand on the Stcvcnson-Spark- man ticket. But the part of this particular AP dispatch that was interesting was contained in this paragraph selling forth Roberlson's reasons for going along wilh Ihe party: "He said he will back the ticket was selected. But far more often it's assumed that platforms are in a class with campaign oratory in that nobody takes them seriously any more. Platforms seem to have two because he gesture the regards as Democratic a mere platform roken urics. Mrs. Allison was on the floor of he car in front of the rear scat vith a broken shoulder and two jrokcn ribs. Mrs. Knapp suffered crushed chest, a broken shoulder and a broken pelvic bone. The occupants of the White car were not reported injured. pledge to repeal the Taft-Hartley labor-management act." And he went on to say he re garded the new civil rights plank "less threatening to the Southern point of view than the 1948 pro nouncemcnt." Of .course what the Virginian lad in his mind--and what everybody, knows--is that a platform promise isn't worth the paper it's written on. And if you want further proof of this, let's' turn to Adlai Stevenson himself. How Adlat Has Changed Down through the years the 11- ·irincipal reasons for being. One of them, of course, is, as I've suggested, to woo all groups -- economic, social, racial, ideological-- ,vith catch-all promises, meaning ull things to all men. Avoids Floor Battles Another, and I suspect even more compelling, reason is the opportunity presented by platform committees to settle difficult questions in a smoke-filled room rather .nan on the convention floor. Such linois governor has contended for nothing more t h a n "modification" of the Taft-Hartley act. Here are his words of less than three month: ago: Rites at Thompson for Howard Abbott THOMPSON -- Funeral services for Howard Abbott, 42, will be held Tuesday at 2.p.m. at the Methodist Church, the Rev. Harley Carbaugh officiating. He died at his home Saturday., Survivors include the widow, a brother Loren of Forest City, and three sisters, Mrs. C, E. Teague, of Tripoli; Mrs. Frank Fredericks, of Buffalo Center, and Mrs. Irene Buckley, Forest City. : Mr. Abbott, who served.'in World War 11 for two and one-half years, was manager of the Phillips 66 station and drove a school bus for three years. open battles have a way of militating against success at the polls when they reach such bitterness as the Klan fight in the Democratic convention did in Madison Square Garden back in 1924. The free silver issue divided the Democratic party at a somewhat earlier era in its. history. But don't ever make the mistake of assuming that a platform promise is anything more than a nebu lous .hint of what an administra tion or the dominant party in Congress MIGHT do. In the case of the presidency, a look at the rc'cord and the utterances of the rival nominees will prove ever so much more revealing. And perhaps this is no new phenomenon in the American po- New Evidence in Car Death ONAWA W -- State agents have uncovered new evidence in the hit- run death of Donald. Rudnik, 15, Monona County Coroner E. E. Gin- gles'said Monday. The coroner said the new evidence would be ready for presentation within a week. As a result of the development, resumption of the inquest into the lad's death has been'postponed until Aug. 25 at 2 p.m. The boy's body was found alongside the Blue Lake road west of Onawa on July 25. He apparently had been struck by a car while lying on a blanket fishing. "Anyone who says flatly that hc ) H l L c a l sccnc for wcl i over a half is either for or against that law-meaning the Taft-llartley act--is indulging in our common weakness Banker, Former Mayor of Blue Earth, Dies ELMORE,^ Minn .--Funeral serv- ces for C. F. Hcnkcl, 91, president of the First National Bank of Elmorc, will bo held Monday at 2 p.m. at the Methodist Church' in Elmore. Mr. Henkcl, former mayor, died Friday night at a hospital in Blue Earth. He was formerly owner of the Elmore Cement and Tile Co. Survivors include the widow, Iva ; and two daughters, Mrs." Marvin Ogg, Manly, and Mrs. Robert Geiger, Minneapolis. Last Rites Pending for Rockford Woman ROCKFORD -- Funeral services were incomplete for Mrs. Otis Sheldon, 71, farm woman of this community, who died at a RockweL' nursing home at 4:20 a.m. Monday. Survivors are her husband, sons Lynn of Rockford and Donald of Rockwell. Friends may call at the Blake Funeral Home at Rockwell. for over-simplification . .' . I think Ihe Democratic platform should recommend modification." But the 1952 Democratic platform didn't call for modification. That platform was adopted before Nominee Stevenson was and in one of its few deviations 'from gobbleydc- gook language, it called for outright and total repeal. And docs Nominee Stevenson feel required to repudiate this obvious unsavory stand wished upon him by the party platform? Not at all. He merely laughs it off with the absurb suggestion t h a t after all there isn't much real difference between modifying the Taft-Hartley act and repealing it! Hard to Enforce By recalling that the platforms of both parties are adopted before Ihe nominees arc chosen, I've touched on one of the essential weaknesses of the platform tech niquc. It would be hard to enforce strict accountability upon a Prcsi dent who had nothing whatever to do with shaping it. This principle applies with spe cial force to Adlai Stevenson this year for the reason that he was the reluctant candidate clear up to the moment of his actual nomination Taft and Eisenhower, on the olhe hand, had been consulted in ad vance of Ihe GOP nomination about certain platform matters. In Britain and in certain othe countries where the parliamentary rather than the presidential system of government exists, there greater regard for party declara tion, or platform, and for under stahdable reasons. It's easier un dcr a parliamentary system to en force accountability to party. In the United States, there's sharp line of demarcation sep araling the executive and legisla live branches of government from each other, and from the thin branch, designated the judicial With elected executive officials ant legislators holding office for fixe terms, there is virtually no way o turning them out until they com up for re-election. To Public, Not to P a r t y In all cases accountability uncle the American system is to the vol ing public rather than to party 20 E.

M. Monday Through Safurday MUSICAL TNT Presented by Sam Raizes Dept. Store cntury ago, James G. Blaine, a rmer presidential candidate him- itf, made this observation: "Formerly the platform was o[ rst importance . . . The prcsiden- al candidate was held closely to ic text, and he made no excur ons beyond it. Now the position the candidate, imscif, is of far ith the voters." Tw«edledee and as defined by m o r e weight Tweedledum Truce Negotiations Will Be Resumed MUNSAN, Korea l/n-- United Nations and Communist truce delegates meet Tuesday at Panmunjom, ending a week-long recess that produced no visible hint of progress. The delegates arc scheduled to meet at 11 a.m. Tuesday (8 p.m. Monday, CST) in the faded conference tent. . ' , They probably will pick up right where they left off last week- arguing fruitlessly over prisoner of war exchange, the only issue blocking an armistice for Korea. Stripped of their misty verbiage, ic two platforms this year arc trikingly similar, as they were our years ago. The difference four ears ago lay largely in the two ominccs. This year the difference between ic nominees is less pronounced. ke Eisenhower is very much more ke Adlai Stevenson, in personal ly and in fundamental beliefs rian Tom Dcwcy was like Harry 'ruman. So far as foreign policy is con- erned, the difference between hem is so slight as to require precision instrument for detec- ion. And on domestic issues, if we! iiclge by what we know about them p to now rather than by what hey'll be saying as the campaign develops, we find a pronounced igrcement, at least so far as fun- lamentals are concerned; Prosperity vs. New Broom In the campaign we're going to see a head-on clash between these ,wo slogans from the rival camps: The Stevenson forces are going o keep chanting: "You never had t so good." The Eisenhower refrain will be: 'Only a new broom will do the job." About the only real issue presented in the rival platforms is contained in the Democratic plal- 'orm's pledge to repeal the Taft- lartley act. And lhat issue is dulled by the fact lhat down in his icart Adlai Stevenson favors mod- fication rather than repeal. And even Senator T a f t favors that! Perhaps as Mr. Blaine suggested, jarty platforms once had meaning. D crhaps in the future, they will again. But as of this day, they are conceived as bait for the unwary ralhcr than as a beacon or guidepost.
