(/P)—The Cleveland convention "has, developed several aspects new to political history, but none more out v pf, keeping with the indications of the'past than last night's crowning demonstration of harmony behind the leadership of Landon of Kansas. A year ago the republican party was so badly divided and disorganized that some of its most eminent figures were discussing whether it should not be abandoned entirely, and a new coalition movement created in its stead. A month ago the dispute over both men and measures reached a fervor holding promise of great bitterness. A week ago the headquarters of three rival candidates, were nailing no-surrender signs on their doors, and exchanging ultimatums. Today a presidential nominee has been chosen almost by acclamation, and a platform adopted without a single ( 'no" from any quarter of the convention hall. It would go fay beyond the truth, of course; to say that factions and differences of opinion . within the party.have disappeared, or that these divisions would leave no mark on the coming campaign. But .even so, the remain that the conven- tion has accomplished what few conventions ever do—it has presented to the country an organization outwardly and officially whole again. This is not the ordinary course of politics. What happened in last night's session and the J2 hours preceding it cannot be accepted, under any law of political action, as a sudden and miraculous dawning of the light of harmony. Unquestionably, a long chain of circumstances lay behind ft all, and many of'the links ware,,-entirely .outside the convention itself.' The fact is that the ranking republican . leaders, h^ad ,c,Ppj, to an almost universal agreement long since on two vital points, and had started them quite openly on more occasion. First, that the party could scarpely hope to survive if, in 1936, it suffered another defeat as crushing 1 as that of 1932. Second, that the crucial year 1936 could be saved only,Jf ^ far greater degree of nannpny w?re re-established in.the ranks. This was. the pressure pf extremity which rested ,,upon the delegates, and the riva.l candidates. This was what impelled .the' rivals of Qov. Landon to acknowledge thie inevitable and wjthdrav beforq a vote had been cs^st, Th,ey.W«re apt njereT ly trying to be good sports, or to wii one election. They were trying t save the party, and at least two o them said so in seconding th victor's nomination. Time alone can tell how effectiv this rallying, of the factions will be Gov. Landon has come to the presi dential nomination by a shorter and easier route than almost any othe man in a generation. He emerge; from a background largely un touched by the old party quarrel and jealousies. But, for all of that he is sure to have his problems. HIGH SPOTS IN KNOXLIFE CHICAGO, June 12, (IP)— Some of the high spots in the life of Frank Knox, republican vice presidential nominee: Fought under Theodore Roosevelt as a Rough Rider in Cuba. , As a crusading young editor, struck out to clean up Ste.
