f* AGfc !M PAMP A DAttY ftfsfci, StMDAtf f, ON MET IS VANDENBERG REFUSES TO RUN FOR VICE- PRESIDENCY BY JOHN F. CHESTER, CLEVELAND, June 6 <ff"i— With bitterness mounting and increasing talk of efforts to "stop Landon." republicans today whirled into a pre- convention week-end that produced new signs of a free-swinging fight not only over the presidential and vice presidential nominations but the platform as well. The sudden announcement of Senator Vandenberg, of Michigan, that he would not accept a second place on the republican ticket headlined a day of many other developments. Concededly. his statement threw the vice presidential race into a jumble. Spreading talk was heard of the possibility of a coalition to halt the march of Governor Alf M. Landon of Knnsns. Into these discussions the name of former Governor Frank O. I.nwdon of Illinois entered prom- liii-nlly. At Ills home. Lowden cle- rlfnt'd to comment. Responsible leaders of the rival rlnns likewise were chnry of quotable confirmation. Prom the headquarters of both Col. Frank Knox of Illinois and Senator Borah of Idiilio cnmo reiterations that they litul joined no such consolidated drive. TliL'so mushrooming reports and counter-reports were spread against n background of mounting first- ballot claims by Landon supporters. They ranged from 400, the latest high set by John D. M. Hamilton, spokesman for the Kansan, to better than 502, or enough to nominate him on the initial polling of delegates. The definite withdrawal of Vandenberg from the vice presidential lists carried wide implications it was Inn concensus of many here that the Michigan Senator could have had a second place on the 193G ticket for the asking. The implications spread into the presidential field as well. How much, any, the Vnndenberg announcement hurt the Landon drive was a matter o£ Speculation. Certainly, many Landon boosters had spread assertions that a Landon-Vandenberg tickets would be an attractive one. Despite the uprolllng claims of Landon strength as delegates poured into the city in ever-increasing numbers, all else was not completely serene in the Kansan's camp. It became more and more evident that a battle was in prospect— whether in private-session or in the open—over the formation of a platform. Recent proposals sounded here of a liberalized platform, appeared likely to draw fire from some Landon supporters in the cast. Speculation spread as to whether William Allen White, Emporia, Kan., editor, who is generally expected to speak for Landon on the platform committee, would press a proposal for a constitutional amendment to allow the states to enact minimum wage and other such labor legislation. White has hinted broadly at such a possibility, saying that to come forward with an amendment might beat the democrats to the punch. Meantime, new fire was drawn from the Knox and Borah camps at the escalator claims of delegate strength by Landon supporters. After voicing anew his objections to such statements in behalf of the eKnsas, Edward Hayes, chairman of the Knox-foi-president committee, took another fling at Landon himself. The republicans could not carry Illinois, said Hayes, "if we have to start off every speech by apologizing for the fact that our candidate has supported the new deal." » • John Robinson Dies in Pampa John A.

IIAKDEMAN' The Francis Avenue Church of Christ begins its annual revival campaign at 11 this morning and will continue for a period of 10 days with two services daily. Evangelist N. B. Hardeman of Henderson, Tenn., will do the preaching and nymnal services will be directed by local talent. Dr. Hardeman comes to Pampa with the reputation of being one •>[ ;he leading educators of the state of Tennessee. He is now president of Freed-Hardeman college and has served the institution in this capacity for the past 11 years. Hu has otherwise been connected with the college that bears his name for 38 years. During his busy life as a public servant, his work as educator, author, lecturer and preacher has carried him into more than 20 states and several foreign countries. In 1923 Dr. Hardeman spent three months in 'the Holy Land doing Biblical research work. This evening at 8:15, he will give one of his lectures on the Holy Land and will also give an account of his research work while there. All Bible students in Pampa and surrounding communities are invited to hear this special message. E. C. McKenzie, minister of the local church makes the following announcement concerning this revival: "Our congregation is, indeed, fortunate in being able to procure the services of brother Hardeman for this revival meeting. In order that we might have him with us at this time, we were forced to engage his services for this particular date almost two years ago. 'We have no greater nor more successful preacher living in the Church of Christ today than Brother Hardeman. In the field of education, he is a recognized leader in his native state of Tennessee. In the field of religion, he is an international figure. He is a scholarly, but humble man and a Christian gentleman of the highest order. Especially do we invite all Bible students in Pampa to hear his lecture this evening at 8:15 on his trip to the Holy Land. It will be deeply interesting . to hear his scholarly presentation of a word picture of that far-away land that has been made sacred by the footprints of our Savior. You will be thrice welcome to attend every service of this 10-day revival." There will be two services each day. During week clays, the morning service will be conducted at 10. All evening services will begin promptly at 8:15. LOCAL THEATER PROGRAMS The Pampa theater program for this week follows: LANOKA THEATER Today, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

IS PRIME ASSET IS TO TOP OF FAMILY DISAPPROVED OF HER THEATER AMBITIONS Adaptability and versatility are the twin keystones on which Loretta Young founded her screen career ( and strict observance of .these two attributes has elevated her to the highest rank of Hollywood stardom. The lovely, wide-eyed beauty, who is co-starred with Robert Taylor in "Private Number," the Fox romantic hit at La Nora theater currently, discovered early that she was in no danger of being "typed" as an actress fit only for certain roles and <began to encourage the casting directors to put her in the most varied parts available. Thus, she felt, audiences would not grow tired of seeing her frequently, providing that her roles differed widely. Her pictures have ranged through three centuries of history and her characterizations from a modern playgirl to « demure miss of Rothschild's era. Loretta was born In Salt Lake City, Utah, but her family moved to Los Angeles when she was only four. She made her first screen appearance shortly after in a child's role with Fanny Ward. Her parents were sternly opposed to Loretta becoming a Juvenile actress and they bundled her off to Ramona convent where she remained practically throughout her childhood. When Loretta graduated, her sister, Polly Ann Young, had already achieved a foothold on ; the screen and she introduced Loretta to the film world by permitting her to substitute when she was 111 one day. Loretta made gbod with a vengeance and came home-with a contract for the leading feminine role in "Laugh, Clown, Laugh." A parade of excellent roles followed and soon Loretta became the screen star Of the Young family, although Polly Ann continued film work and a third sister, Sally Blane, was also appearing in pictures. Loretta's Interest in pictures Is so great that she never misses sen- Ing any film. Her hobby is photography and she carries a small camera with her at all times. Her particular delight is to snap her friends and associates in informal poses when they aren't looking. Yachting and riding are her favorite exercises but sh6 doesn't like to swim. Loretta Is five feet, thrt* Inches In height, and weighs ninetjf- eight pounds. Her hair Is golden and her eyes blue. In "Private Number," Loretta plays a personal maid who falls In love with Robert Taylor, a millionaire's son. It is just the type of role that she delights in, being emotional, romantic and tinged with light comedy. Use "Lindbergh Heart" To the Warner Bros, comes the honor of introducing and exhibiting to the public for the first time the "Lindbergh Heart." Ever since America's ace filer electrified the world with the declaration that he had perfected a "Perfusion Pump" that would maintain life in tissues and organs of the human anatomy, scientists arid laymen alike have sought a chance to see this life giving scientific revelation. In "The Walking Dead," a Warner Bros, production now showing at the Rex theater, the "Heart" is seen in the actual operation of rehabilitating the action in the heart of a chicken. The "heart" plays the all important part of restoring life to-Boris Karloff, the star, who supposedly had previously been electrocuted. Thus, for the first time, the public is afforded a view of the ma* chine that Col.' Charles A. Lindbergh, working as an assistant to Dr. Alefcls Corel! at the Rockefeller Institute of New York, perfected. Tlie "Lindbergh Heart" used in the picture was built by Stanley China Hotheads Bade Down on War Declaration HONGKONOt, Jvine 6 China's patriots, apparently feeling they had dared Japan far enough, tonight disclaimed desires to wage a lone war upon Nippon. Amid indications of concern for both Japanese and worldwide renc r tion, the canton leaders Issued statements denying they wanted to fight Japan independently or that they intended to force a crisis With the central .(Nanking) government. they explained their decision to send Kwangtung and kwangsl pro' vincial armies northward as an anti- Japanese expedition amounted mere-' ly to a patriotic offer of southern services again Japanese aggression and a request for permission to reinforce Nanking's troops in the north. (The southern troops, estimated as high as 100,000 have been reported occupying towns in Hunan province and heading northward.) To some Hongkong observers, however, the southern explanations were not entirely convincing. These persons contended there .was reason to suspect official connivance at leakage of news concerning sensatlohal troop movements which might have been calculated to alarm Nanking, but which later could be repudiated.
