DUFFY, Associated Press Staff Writer. CLEVELAND, June 12 (fl j )—Still afire from the veritable explosion of acclaim with which It unanimously fibmlnated Alf M. Landon ftir tHe presidency, the republican national convention moved today to choose a running mate for what the Kansas .governor heralds as a mighty drive to Unseat the new deal. ..Two names — Vandenberg and Knox—sped from mouth to moutll through hotel .corridors as leaders and,delegates struggled through the dawn.and beyond to attain accord in the vice presidential nominee so today's final session of the convention could Complete the ticket and a'djbiifh soon after convening at 9 a. m. COST). l ••; .Both Senator Vandenberg ,of Michigan and Col. Frank .Knox of Chicago had withdrawn from the .presidential race .to second Landon's n'ominMloh last night and call for . unity, in "this great crisis." Talk pf .drafting one or the.other .of them for the second placfe hit a crescendo itbday, though Vandenberg had ro- tcently threatened to refuse, the nom- jinitidn from , the . convention plat- forfn, . and Knox had not said Whether he would accept. There was slight hope of repeating at today's session last night's contribution to political history, iivhen the Landon name . was the ,pnly one even presented, and on the roll call he received .984 of the 1;003 votes. The teller's announcement was drowned by the din of shouting and parading followers. Of the 19 non-Landon votes, Wisconsin cast 18 for Senator William E. Borah of Idaho, while a single one from West Virginia's bloc also went .to the "Lion of Idaho." Wisconsin then quickly moved that the nomination be made unanimous. •Another tumult spoke the affirmative answer. Borah Watched. Besides the vice presidential conundrum,, another question hung fire. "What will Senator Borah do?" Many ^delegates wondered. /.Speeding to Washington after los- in'g the presidential race but winning recognition for his views in a compromise platform which the convention adopted with a whooping chorus of •'*'ayes""Boroh was reported stunned on hearing that Governor Landon had wired the convention reserving the right to place his personal interpretation on two major planks. In calling for a "sound currency," the convention's program had omitted any mention of the "gold standard," 'and it advocated a wage and hour legislation by the states under .the constitution as it how stands. These planks were widely regarded as Borah victories. But soon after the platform went through, John Hamilton, Landon campaign manager, stepped to the Speaker's rostrum with a telegram from Topeka. Governor Landon wired that he would unqualifiedly pledge himself to "be true to the principles and program" of the document. 'Gold' View Explained. ^"Hxiw.eyer," .the governor added .'/jjfitU thiit candor which you ahci tfye, country .are entitled to expect of jin'e,',,.'!; feel .compelled before you .gr^cSeclV witfr. consideration of my ji^me 'to submit my interpretation of'certain planks in. the platform so that you may be advised as to my views;" He went on to declare that if it should prove impossible for sta,tes to regulate women's and, children's wages and hours without.^ consti- tutional amendment '1 shall favor a constitutional amendment." Then he went on to speak the word "gold," aassiduously avoided by ihe platform committee. He said that one requisite for a "sound iurrency" is a balanced budget and mother a currency "expressed in terms of gold and convertible into gold." Borah, who has declared against a constitutional amendment and denounced any move to return to the jold standard, was told of this as lie sped by train from Cleveland ioward Washington.

' Knox Thrlljed. : ! However, other hien, including Herbert Hoover arid Colonel Prank Knox, expressed much satisfaction over the Landon message. Knox, In seconding the Landon nomination in the unprecedented scenes last night, said: 'I was thrilled to tHe bottom bf my heart by the language of, that telegram. That was filled' ~ ' >f that £ wifh courage, sincerity, and fMrikness." The attitude of Vandenberg and Knox last night, in appealing for unity in what they Called a "crisis" in government, led some Landon organizers to contend a refusal to run for vice president,-, if nominated, was out of the question. Much has happened since Vandenberg said he would refuse from the rostrum.
