"/'^ompaijiy Ph<?ne43 113 No. Cwylw PHILADELPHIA, June 22 (AP) —A Democratic platform, patterned at' the White House after the "new deal," headed today toward a 'national convention in which pressure from both "left" and "right" was already in evidence. Senator Robert Wagner of New York, prospective chairman of the resolutions committee, bore the White House draft to the convention. Strong forces were at work among arriving- delegates to make the platform more "liberal" to meet the challenge of the new "Union" party headed by Rep. William Lemke of North Dakota and other Leftist groups. Leaders of the move in this direction pressed the view that the statement issued yesterday by Alfred E. Smith and four other prominent Democrats asking- the convention to find a "substitute" for President Roosevelt showed the new deal had lost this faction beyond recall. But James A. Farley, national committee chairman, said he saw "no reason" in the Lemke movement for "rearming our plans" and there were potent strategists who felt the party has already won the great- bulk of "Liberals" and must cater to the followers of Smith and his group. Arrival of Senator Carter Glass of Virginia, was expected to bolster the latter viewpoint. The peppery Senate veteran, a member of every platform committe since 1896, wrote the monetary plank forr years ago. He has often criticized new deal measures, but will support the Roosevelt ticket. Clashing pressure from the "left" and "right" was centering on the monetary plank and a few others —including the farm, constitution, and social security programs. Foreign affairs, monopoly, and labpr were other possible fighting issues. It was recalled that theer also was fi clash between "liberal" and conservative opinion among the Republicans at Cleveland two weeks ago and that a frank compromise platform resulted. Democratic platform writers had the advantage of seeing the political - battlefrpnt from closer range. .T^e republican strategy was already Before them. Lemke'sprogram was down in'black and AYhiie; The Smith group had 1 spoken. Chiefly the Jssue : confronting the pjatform committee and later tfye convention was whether to stand on the new deal as now outlined, or advance. The reception given the Smith statement by commenting leaders showed little disposition to go back. One of the most apparent sectors for an advance was the farm front. Many Democrats felt the Republicans had approached them pn this issue, and a new step 'for- w&rd was necessary. There were proposals for a new scheme of crop insurance to protect farmers again'sl droughts and other "acts of Qod" that produce bad years. Secretary Wallace and Chester Davis, former AAA administrator, were authoritatively said 1 to be friendly to a crop insurance plank, but those who participated in the recent 'White Hpuse conference oh the faim!:plank said it was riot discussed. ' . • •"' The WhJte $9«§ e platform,,was said - to''contain' a broad -declaration of principles on the farm TWO OTHER CHURCHES CLOSE DAILY CLASSES question, endorsing soil protection, rural electrification, cooperative or- anizations, credit for farm tenants, reciprocal trade agreements, and higher wages for urban work- era. Little authoritative information was available here on other planks in the administration platform, but it was reported to contain strong neutrality, anti - monopoly, labor and social security planks, with emphasis throughout on the power of the federal government to deal with the social and economic problems. Informed leaders said there was little likelihood of any declaration for a constitutional amendment Rather, it was said, the President's recently expressed view that the constitution was broad enough : to give the needed power would be adopted. Finishing touches were understood to have been applied to the j administration draft at a White House conference last night between the President and Wagner.
