(/Pi— Talk of possible surprise- in the democratic platform was stirred today by an unexplained delay in the arrival of a White House draft of the party program. Senator Robert F. Wagner of New York, prospective chairman of the resolutions committee, who had been expected nil day lony yesterday with the Rooseveltian platform, did not turn up until today. No word as to wliat the draft contains was obtainable from him immediately, but his delayed Journey gave rise to speculation that it might have been drastically revised by President Roosevelt in view of recent political developments. It was recalled that the New York senator had planned to come to Philadelphia lii.st Friday. Then lib trip was postponed to Sunday. Apparently authentic word was passed out almost every hour yesterday that he was due "In a few minutes." Many times during' ilw intervening period lie has been reported nt the White House conferring with the president. Expectant platform makers here have disclaimed meanwhile any knowledge of what changes, if any, were IjeiiiB made in I lie platform. Speculation has centered on possible changes in the labor, monopoly and constitutional planks. There has been talk of a last minute change to include a constitutional amendment plank, but it has been discounted by informed leaders. Whatever the White House suggestions turn out to be, they were almost assured a friendly reception by the make up of the platform cam- mittee. A committee made up largely of the senators who have steered the New Deal program through congress was being formed to pass on the platform. Senator Carter Glass, of Virginia, who might have caused a struggle, had announced he would not serve. The Virginian, arriving in the convention city last night, said lie was "too worn out" to serve on the committee on which he has worked at-every convention since 1890. He- intimated also that his suggucsions may have been turned down already. "I don't expect to see my 1932 monetary plank reinserted," Glass said, "although I would like to see It. I rather expect to see something about silver in the 1936 platform." Glass said Wagner was carrying the platform in his pocket. Asked if it contained any of his views, the Virginian replied with an emphatic "no." This lent, weight to the belief in some quarters that, the platform would make few concessions to the "conservative" wing of the party, but would be designed to hold the "liberals" in line. The make-up of the platform cnm- mittee also added strength to tills view. Among the senators already chosen to serve were such New Deal supporters as Byrnes, of South Carolina; Wheeler, of Montana; Thomas, of Oklahoma; Murphy, of Towa; O'Mahoney. of Wyoming; Black, of Alabama: and Pope, of Idaho, as well as Wagner. Other senators on the committee included George of Georgia, and Bailey of North Carolina, who have been more critically inclined. Senator Thomas said he would offer a plank proposed by Governor E. W. Marland of Oklahoma, declaring it the "duty of the govern- men" to provide "employment at fair wages in useful public work to all able-bodied men who are not needed in productive occupations." Several labor union spokesmen wanted a declaration for a constitutional amendment to permit minimum wage legislation for women; i shorter work week, and a requirement that a two-thirds vote of tin- supreme court would be nec- essory to invalidate legislation. Some farm organizations were asking for crop control and a variety ol other agricultural aids in addition o managed currency. CAPITOL JIGSAW By HOWARD 0. MARSHALL AUSTIN, June 23 (/?)—The democratic state executive committee, preparing the ballot for the July 25 primary, permitted W. Gregory Hatcher and Wesley Pruitt to withdraw as candidates for land commissioner and comptroller but retained their $100 filing fees. "More was involved than the money, which the committee was quite justified in keeping," said a committee member. "If candidates were allowed to file and then withdraw and get their money back there would be a deluge every election year of persons who filed merely for the publicity. Loss of the fee will tend to restrict the filers to bonafide candidates." the very silence of Electrolux testifies to its simpler, more efficient refrigerating: method — no machinery at all I Thanks to this simplicity o! operation, it's the only refrigerate) that can offer you all thvuu lung-lift advantages: • 0 No moving parts to wear It Lasting efficiency • Continued low operating cost 9 Fullest food protection • Savings that pay for It Or.ville S.

"Not only will your violation of this law and this rule subject you '.o the statutory penalty," he, said, •'but it will result in your immediate dismissal when information of such violation reaches me." Opponents of Governor James V. Allrecl have charged that he has at- empted to build up a vast political •irganization by means of the pension nachinery. Chief Justice C. M. Cureton and \ssociate Justice Richard Critz of he Supreme Court, Judge O. S. jattimore of the Court of Criminal vppeals and Lieut.-Gov. Walter F. Voodul had no opposition for re- .omination.

(IP)— Sarcasm and criticism hung over an international conference today on Turkey's request to refortify the Dardanelles. A Turkish program, aimed toward revision of the Lausanne pact of 1923, evoked objections from several delegations at the sessions. Critical comment followed what were considered to be Turkish concessions to Russia, together with what were described as deliberate inequalities to other nations over use of the straits including the Bosphorus, the Sea of Marmora and the Dardanelles. The Turkish program—discussed in a secret session today—some of the conferees and particularly the British thought, would give Russia virtually unlimited freedom to send _ _ . warships from the Black Sea to the Hardware Mediterranean. f~t To the contrary, the rights of Company other nations to dispatch fighting vessels to the Black Sea were sharp- Pftone 43 113 No. Cuylerly curtailed or denied altogether.

Because Teofila Garcia, Starr county farmer, sped into the Corpus Christ! cotton exchange with the first bale of marketable cotton, lie was awarded a prize of $500 yesterday afternoon.

Otherwise, they said, the day may come when a man will be nominated for president by n mere minority of the delegates. The two-thirds rule requires that a candidate must receive the votes of two-thirds of the convention delegates before he can be nominated for president or vice president. The other regulation, which is In effect In some delegations, says that a delegation must vote as a unit, according to the dictates of tho majority within It. Administration leaders express Increasing confidence that the two- Lhirds rule will go by the boards. In that case Senator Harry F. Byrd said he would demand that the convention disapprove the unit rule Under the unit rule, he foresaw a possibility that a bare majority of delegates In a group of big states bottle up for their favored candidate the entire vole of such states and thus give him a majority. But the helpless dissenters in these big states, plus the dissenters in other states, might constitute an actual majority of the convention. The senator conceded there probably was little the convention coulc do about the unit rule except recommend that states discourage its adoption. He said he believed some states had imposed this rule by statute. Chief opposition to repeal of the two-thirds rule came from the "ok South." There were some defections, however. For instance, Senator Robinson of Arkansas, majority flooi leader of the senate, said: "I think I'll support abrogation.'
