(5=)--Inhabitants 'of the windswept countryside where earthquakes brot .death and terror' during the week-end, still huddled la the open/imder tents today as tho ground twitched and shifted like a restless giant. The latest of the settling shifts, none- of which-caused major damage, came early this morning. Soldiers "were everywhere in the quake zone today, reassuring" the peasants, distributing food, clothing and medicine, building temporary shelters and searching the debris of a dozen villages for victims. The estimated death'total has been placed officially,at between 80 find 100 tho reports froni some sections are still .fragmentary. News from Gueygeh' today said several villages had been completely destroyed. LAFOLLETTE IDEA REVIVED IN 1931 (Continued From Page 1). probably was Norris' superior 3n impetuosity. Senator Norris recognizes certain things'as impossible. '/Old Bob" never did. A third party candidate, to signify anything whatever, must be a ".bigger man" than 'it is vitally necessary for a major party's candidate to be, because a major party presidential nominee has the advantage of his organization to make him LOOK big, whereas it is the other way about with an independent--his following depends on HTM, to give it an appearance of importance. . -, ! Now that "Fighting Bob' 1 is gone, with the exception of Senator Norris, maybe Governor _ Pinchot of Pennsylvania, and perhaps Senator Tom Walsh of Montana, a third party presidential eligible of the required proportions does not immediately .suggest himself. OENATOR BORAH, indeed, is sure to be mentioned as available. He almost certainly is not, however. He is "big'! enough and, in actual practice, he. is sufficiently progressive, but .theoretically he is a very "regular" republican --and the last individual t o risk his prestige at the head of a political forlorn hope. O t h e r w i s e , __ while;?; there/Tare.; v -Senator w»J, several;J.e \O«rge Norris hitting' folk amorig'the progressives, in a national .sense they all are somewhat . deficient in . whp.t is known ,fri prize ring 1 parlance as "reputation." . And Seaator Norris already is on record as having turned down the third party idea, when advanced, recently by Professor John Dewey of Columbia, Besides, he is 70 and Senator Walsh is a couple of years older than that. Governor Pinchot, to he sure, at 66, is'spoiling for the opportunity. Still, the choice is limited. , - . ' ' · ' · ' · * * " , * F OR ALL THAT, and despite the 'fact that Leaders Norris, LaFollette, Cutting; Wheeler and Costigan have specifically said they called a conference only to agree on a program and with no view to a third party ticket, the progressives have placed themselves in the position of having at least made a gesture toward their pistol pocket, and no one who once reaches for a gun can ever be sure he will not have to use It. Having heard^the progressives' demands, auppose neither old-line party complies with them. \ It will be equivalent to saying, "All right, shoot." 1 If so, will self-respect not compel the progressives to do it? It hap- pened.so in 1924. * · · · PROGRESSIVE leadership appears ·T to think that the old-liners will be.easier to frighten next year than eight years previously, inasmuch as the coming election bids fair to be much more -evenly balanced than that one. Yet the more delicate the balance, the likelier is big business to do its utmost to shape both major tickets to suit its own ends, in order to.be on the winning aide whichever party may triumph. And it practically, is a foregone conclusion that what suits big business will not suit the progressives, for progressive-)am's and big business' respective philosophies are essentially in conflict. March 11 and 12'a conference may turn out to have been nothing but a talkfest, but it is mighty reminiscent of what occurred eight years ago.
