(Continued From Page 1) though Landon had asked for Its reinstatement. John Hamilton, the energetic Landon manager, smilingly declined to talk about the vice presidential nomination. .The principal talk heard was Knox. His long-time friend and fellow newspaperman In youth, Vanaenberg, remarked to reporters he "rather" thought Knox should be chosen. Borah was understood to feel an obligation to the delegates pledged to" him from Wisconsin and a few other states. Some friends of Borah said they expected him to abide by the wishes of his delegates. Pqirmer convention procetedings were delayed while the platform committee worked to meet Landon's views on some essential planks. He was understood to be Insistent on changes In the draft which he considered overnight. Details were not available; but the question of advocating an amendment to the constitution for minimum wage legislation wa's one understood to be causing trouble. Wfyle the "favorite son" candidates were withdrawing, their states soon were joined by delegates from unrnstructed southern states. Florida, In caucus, was the first to line up with the rush. Every effort to line up the party solidly was being made by the leaders. There was still chance for dispute, however, when the monetary and other major planks in the platform reached debate late in the day. 2- (Continued From Page 1) ed by the subcommittee last night had delayed presentation of the party program to the convention toJday. It was expected to reach the convention floor tonight. Some of the platform rewriting askeii by Landon was said by committee members to be chiefly a matter pf phraseology, but among the significant demands were; Inclusion of a platform pledging civil service status for all government employes below the rank of cabinet. Be-instatement of a plank for control of interstate public utilities. Revision of a plank condemning the new deal's reciprocal tariff law, and demanding that trade treaties be ratified by the senate. A Landon demand for a "pay as ypu go" tax program to finance social security was accepted finally by the subcommittee after once being .rejected. ^As it was emerged-from the subcommittee, the platform came close to conforming to the demands of Senator Borah of Idaho. Landon managers said it was near enough to the senator's views to win his support for the ticket in November. Borah refused comment on this claim. tfo changes were made by the subcommittee in major platform provisions, including the following: A monetary plank .calling for "jjound money," but omitting mention OJf the "gold standard." A foreign affairs plank, pledging opposition to American membership irj the League of Nations and the world court. Air anti-monopoly pledge strong ehpugh to win the approval of B^prah, who made it his chief campaign issue. A farm plank stressing stale's rights. A strong state's rights trend ran through the entire platform. II was stressed in the social security, farm and unemployment relief planks. , William Allen -White, Landon's representative on the platform sub- cphimittee.' he would carry the bjattle for the minimum wage amendment to the full committee. |p Tfaere was, however, no minority report from the subcommittee. .

While the subcommittee was still working on changes requested by the Kansas governor, Herman Langworthy, chairman, announced the full committee meeting had boon postponed until 1 p. m. This virtually precluded any chance of a report of the convention before tonight. Landon leaders had disclosed early, that the prospective presidential nominee had asked for a number of alterations in lhe platform agreed upon last night by the subcommittee and was prepared to insist upon some of them. Details of the changes requested by Landon were not disclosed by his managers but they were understood to deal with several of the planks changed by the subcommittee to concilate either Senator Borah, of Idaho, or the conservative eastern leaders. Rep. Hcpe of Kansas joined the subcommittee deliberations, indicating that one of the Landon objections related to the final form of the farm- plank. There also were reports that the Kansas gove'rnor was not satisfied with the form in which the social security plank was written, insisting upon a "pay as you go" system.

It is about a man worthy of a book, personally and through his achievements on the plains. Goodnight was a pioneer in the broader sense. He would have been a leader in an older section. It is a ,bqoK, too, written by a man who understood his subject and the time and conditions in which that subject lived. Haley is a West Texas cow man as well as a historian. His eloquence has been striking since early college days. His wit is matched only 'by his intense earnestness. . . It would be well if books were written only on so worthy a subject, by so worthy an author. . . And it is fully and vitally a book of this area. It was compiled over more than a decade, well pondered. It has a Pampa-flavor, as well it might, since a number of Parnpans supplied some of the background. . -... business visitor in Pampa /or :i 'few days. MARKET NEW \ORK, June 11.
