MONDAY feVENlNG, ttJMB 22, 1936. £AMt»A DAILY NEWS, Pampa, TeXai PAGE SEVEN DEMOCRATS FLAY AL SMITH AND PALS AS LIBERTY LEAGUERS ®- SMITH ASKS 'GENUINE DEMOCRAT' BE NOMINATED PHILADELPHIA, June 22 (/P)— The 'convening democrats look over the long-time republican citadel toflay amid predictions by leaders that the national conclave would return a thundering "no" to Alfred E. Smith's demand for the repudiation of President Roosevelt. , One ofter another, new dealers in command of the situation here stepped forward to denounce Smith or to shake their heads sadly over what they called his mistaken course. • * Among the delegates arriving for the convention opening tomorrow, none thus far have risen to support the Statement in which Smith and four other :anti-new 'deal ^democrats called on the convention 'to put aside .Mr. Roosevelt and nominate "some .gotiuine democrat" lor president. To ; all appearances delegates were bent on answering Smith with a militant pro-Roosevelt rally and platform., Rending.the opening gavel, thousands of delegates and visitors busied themselves with gossip about threats of a party split, making sure meantime of their seats for the first democratic national convention in Pennsylvania history and enjoying themselves. Chairman James E. Parley's usual broad smile faded when he was asked about the Smith statement. He ., answered in clipped words: Smith's Stripe Known "This convention will nominate a genuine democrat, Franklin D. Roosevelt." . Recalling Smith's affiliation with the American Liberty league, Parley said "the objectives and connections of people of this kind are by this time thoroughly well known to every American;" The tenor of remarks by several others prominent in the party was the same. Invoking the memory of Jefferson, Jackson and Cleveland, the Smith statement issued in New York said that to be true to the democratic paft|ty meant 'taking "the heavy hand of .government off business," balancing the budget and ending of dole conditions. Other signers were former Senator iJames A. Reed of Missouri, Bain- ridge Colby of New York, former Governor Jospeh B. Ely of Mas- sachusettes, and Daniel P. Cohalan of New York. "If you fail," they said, "then patriotic voters of all parties will • know unhesitatingly to what standard-they must rally In order to preserve the America of the great leaders of the past." . Allowance for opposition from the Smith sector had been made long since. After his December speech to the Liberty league, those "in the know" never expected him to support a new deal reelection. Smith For Landon? But this overnight summons from the right for a broad bolt against the new deal on grounds of fundamental Americanism, at the precise time when some leftists were organizing behind the third-party ticket of Rep. Lemke of North Dakota, brought up new factors. Did it mean Smith and that veteran stumper, Reed, would support or campaign for Knox and Landon V Was it possible to offset that appeal to a degree? 'Or should commitments on such subjects as farm • aid and old age pensions be made explicit with the Lemke-Coughlin- Townsend audience -in view? So ran the conjecture .among groups clustered beneath portraits . of Roosevelt and Garner in the corridors. Jammed hotel lobbies ,and downtown streets, decorations abounding and bands blaring "Happy Days Are Here Again,"—all told the quadrennial tele of convention fanfare for rank and file. But the leaders, secluded in rooms hjgh above the bustle, had their platform problems to wrestle with. One question apparently destined to arouse floor debate, the repeal of the hundred-year old rule requiring a two thirds majority to nominate, has now been set for disposition Thursday morning. Some southerners have their dander up on that. The -powefs-that-be expect to settle it in stride. . Gless Phrase Adopted Senator Wagoner of New York was expected today from Weshington bearing a proposed platform patterned at the White House after the new deal. The coming of Senator Glass of Virginia today also was looked to for possible developments on the monetary plank. It was his phrase "sound currency to be preserved at all hazards" in the 1932 platform that republicans adopted in Cleveland. Senator Thomas of Oklahoma planned to insits on advocating "a sound currency" backed by silver as well as gold. Whether to confine the party's platform to broad principles, under such terms as "social pioneering," and "national solutions for national problems," or to make detailed comments was a source of potential controversy. Secretary Wallace was known to be intent upon • production control and crop insurance pledges, for example, but other leaders favored relying basically on past performances to attract the farm vote. Wagner was understood to have u tentative plank endorsing soil conservation subsidies, rural electrification, encouragement for farm cooperatives, relief of farm tenancy, and foreign trade promotion through trade agreements. Senator Guffey of Pennsylvania wanted endorsment of his bituminous price-fixing bill which lost out in congress. Whether to favor constitutional amendment to permit regulation of wages and hours was another source for argument. Another was an attempt by Townsendites to get the platform to endorse their old age pension plan. Leaders will strive to settle all points in the conference chambers, preventing any arguments from breaking out on the convention floor. The Smith statement—and the reaction to it—vied with all other lending topics of discussion today. Addressing themselves to the delegates, the Smith dissenters said "you must preserve the constitution, and under it the three separate, distinct and independent brandies of government. To that end you must have a president vho will remain within his own sphere of jurisdiction and not make the congress into a rubber stamp or try to intimidate the pudiciary into an endorsement of his efforts to turn our republic into a dictatorship on •the European model or an Asiatic absolutism. "You must, above all." they said, "put an end to the campaign now under full swing, to buy the presidency" with relief funds. Alabama's Reply To abide by this advice, it was said, would "necessarily involve the putting aside of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the substitution of some genuine democrat—of whom you will have many on your list of delegates." '' (Governor Graves and Senator Black of Alabama were among the first to speak out against the Smith statement. The former attributed it to "irrepressible egotism of people who won't play the game, unless they can be captain." "The next thing," said Black, "we will get advice from President .Shouse of the Liberty league, followed by the republican chairman. Logically the next will be Landon and Knox." Senator O'Mahoney of Wyoming said Smith's mistakes dated back •to the time when he failed 'to move to make the Roosevelt nomination unanimous at Chicago. "The delegates won't ever take a walk—nor will the millions of voters," said Representative Rayburn of Texas. T-he .embittered disputes of 1032 •over the ticket, prohibition repeal and .abandonment of the two-thirds rule had only a weak echo today in discussions about whether nomination should be by a simple majority hereafter. Determined southerners, liking the veto power over presidential nominations which their .almost 300 votes had given that section for so long, were ready to argue with controlling leaders dfi the issue. First they must have it out in Texas Midway Battles Over Dancer Here are the two Corrines of Ihn Texas Centennial Exposition, liver whom a court suit threatens in Dallas.

His antagonism to the rule dates back to 1912, when it deprived his father—Speaker Champ lark—of the presidential nomina- ;ion at Baltimore. Woodrow Wilson finally won. Since a simple majority can sweep .he rule away, it is expected to be abolished. Opens Tuesday Much speechmaking and eelebrat- ng is scheduled before that point. Parley plans to call the convention together tomorrow at 10 a. m. (Cental Standard time) for a brief, 'outlne session at which n welcome will be extended by the republican city administration. Senator Barkley of eKntucky, in •he keynote at the evening session, and Senator Robinson of Arkansas, n assuming the permanent chairmanship Wednesday night, will review the record and call for a •edoubled fight to keep the admlnls- •ration at Washington. The platform is expected to be adopted Thursday evening, ' the speech nominating the president to je made by Judge, John E. Mack of New York Friday morning and the renomination vote probably that night. Vice President Garner's re- nomination will follow.

TEO MEASURE IS SENT TO PRESIDENT FOR SIGNATURE WASHINGTON, June 22 (.1')—A victory for senate filibustcrers vva:; recorded Saturday with final corffrersional approval of legislation to expand (he American merchant marine through direct gov- cinmcnl subsidies. W'ith that measure started to the white house for President Roose- \',3llils signature a senate group which had blocked by hours of talk approval of a conference report on the $992.620.872 treasury-pest office appropriation bill, sat smiling while the supply bill was voted. Th/3 spiX'chmaking—aimed at holding up final'action on the appropriation measure until the house acted en the subsidy bill—went on for several hours yesterday and last night and threatened plans to adjourn congress by tonight. It started early yesterday afternoon when the senate passed a substitute to a house ship subsidy bill. The senate measure provided for gcvcrnment grants up to 50 per cent of the cost of building vessels. Shortly thereafter. Chairman Glass (D-Va) of the appropriations committee sought approval of a conference report on the treasury-post office appropriations bill, which included $20,500,000 for cccan mail contracts under the present mail subsidy system. A number of senators headed by Black (D-Mo) promptly voiced a determination to talk us long as necessary 'to keep 'the appropriation measure from becoming law before thn house luul acted on the ship subsidy bill. The filibusterers. vigorously opposed to the present practice cf awarding contracts for transporting mail, feared thai, if money for continuing it was provided, the house would not pass the subsidy measure. Under procedure which required a two-thirds vote, the house last night refused, 118 to 83, to agree to the senate amendments. Today however, it approved the senate measure, 225 to 21, with one minor amendment. Quickly, Senator Glass—who had been awaiting that movement for several weary hours—asked approv al of the appropriation bill conference report. That measure war sent to the white house without debate or record vote. 3ne Rilled, Six Injured in Wreck CORSICANA. June 22.
