WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 24, 1936. THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Paropa, Texas PAGE FIV® FLAYS REPUBLICANS AS TORTURERS OF CITIZENS PHILADELPHIA, June 24, (If)— After roaring; its approval or a keynote speech calling for a sweep- Ing reversal of the supreme court's invalidation of New Deal policy, the Democratic convention pliinE- ed today Into the thick of the struggle for harmony on th: 1036 platform. The delegates, with the convention hardly started, were already hoarse and footsore from the shouting, parading and singing with whtcl they greeted Senator Alben W. Barkley's speech taunting thr republica; leadership and accusing the supreme cowl majority of "lorluret Interpretation" of the constitution Today they had something of a respite. After a brief, routine session at noon they were "on then own" until evening, when Senntoi Joseph T. Robinson of Arkansas permanent chairman, will continue the assault on the New Deal's foe men in a speech about 8 o'clock C. S. T. But there was little rest for Hi select company of delegates on Hi rules and platform committees. The former group was called together to hear arguments on the New Deal drive to abolish the two-thirds nominating rule. Much of the opposition lo this FOR SALE! Bargains that are outstanding. Used Ice Refrigerators $2.00 and up. Used Me Kee Evercold $25.00 and up. Used Frigidaire $39.50 and up.

The platform builders were sum- noned at 8 a. m. C. T. S. to hear rriUltUudtnous and clashing sug- estions from, almost every conceiv- ble source. Among them was a brand ns-.v hrent to convention peace and con- orcl . . . The Washington stato lelegation had instructed Senator icwi.s B. Schwellenback to carry o the platform committee—and to IIP convention floor—a fight for plank favoring the Townsend $2JO- nonth old age pension plan and 'production for use." Under the latter plan, the state would act to sei up a system under which unemployed could turn out goods for their own consump'ion n factories now idle. Similar to Up- .on Sinclair's "epic plan," it is fraught with controversy. The convention contains clash- Ing views on other issues also—such as money, labor legislation and foreign affairs. But new dealers held a commanding position on tha platform committee and President Roosevelt's view.';, brought here by Senator Robert Wagner of New York, were generally expected to prevail. Observers drew from Senator Barkley's address the inference that the platform would contain no demand for n constitutional anvnd- nu'iil. But he did project into the convention—and into the campaign beyond—a constitutional issue dc-. fined in the New Deal's own terms. He called for a new interpretation of interstate commerce—embracing every product destined to move across stale lines. This would give the federal government regulatory power over labor and economic problems which the high court says it now lacks. Herbert Hoover had raised "hos- annns" for "ihe tortured interpretation" of the eonslilu'ion, Barkley said, but against them "I place the tortured souls and bodl.-s" of men. women and working children. Barkley assailed Governor Alf M. London, republican nominee, on the /ground l<e fouglit insurance of bank deposits and once advocated printing press money. He said that back of "Herbert Hoover's cry for freedom" stood every interest "which seeks to coin the flesh and blood of human beings." He recounted the Roosevelt record, and said J.nat since 1933, the nation has recovered at an "astonishing rate." Tile Barkley speech—picturing President Roosevelt as a man of "rare and superb courage" whom the people will be glad to re-elect —evoked new outbursts of tumult- ous acclaim in a day studded with ovations. Rebel yells, shouts of glee, pell- mell parades of delegates grasping state standards and jauntily waving hats of all descriptions from Texas ten-galloliers to copper creations from Utah—all these featured the session. The delegate's liked especially the way in which Barkley picked up the republican lament about "three long years" of Rooseveltism and hurled it back. He roared that "twelve long Minute By Minute At Station KPDN WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON 3:30—Rambling Reporter. 3:45—Dream Girls. 4:00—Texas Centennial. •, 5:00—Late Afternoon News. 5:IS—Bill Hailey. 5:30—Interlude. 5:40—Beauty Hints. 5:45—Dancing Discs. 6:00—Man on the Street. 6:15—Dance With Us. 6:30—Cheery Cricket. 6:45—Nathaniel Shllkret. 7:00—Througlits for You and Me. 7:25—Complete Baseball Scores. 7:30—Emerson at Eagle. 8:00—Sign Off.

HUDSON official report today from Alcatraz island prison before determining whether to prosecute James C. Lucas, Texas bank robber, for stabbing Al Capone. United States Attorney H. H. McPike said he knew of no present plans to bring Lucas here for trial in the attack on the former Chiago gang leader, .who was described s only superficially wounded. "If Capone had been killed that , r ould be another matter," said the ircsEcutor. "We would then have rought Lucas here for trial on a nurder charge. He. is serving a 0-year term as it is." The prosecutor said he expected letter today from Warden James i. Johnston concerning the stab- ilng which occurred yesterday. Capone, termed a "model" prison- r in the forbidding institution, sent ijs attacker sprawling with a fistic low as Lucas slashed at him with i pair of scissors. A guard quickly intervened, and Lucas was placed in solitary con- inement. Doctors said the wound was about i quarter of an inch deep and an ncli long. Capone walked to the rison hospital unaided. Various reports of ill feeling be- ween Capone and other prisoners lave arisen since an uprising last January when about 100 of the 259 jcnvicts refused to work and demanded additional privileges. Capone, serving an 11-year term 'or income tax evasion, refused to jarticipate in the dispute in which iticas, considered an incorrigible prisoner, was a ring leader. BRITAIN LEADS LONDON, June 24.
