Platform Makers Busy at
Chicago, June 6.-With the conven
tion circle of party leaders virtually
complete, the Republican platform
builders went seriously to work to
night on the more troublesome of the
planks remaining to be fashioned.
One of these was the declaration
on the treaty of Versailles and the
League of Nations, a subject of long
standing disagreement and bitter con
troversy. Another dealt with the in
dustrial relations, bringing into- con
trast widely diverse schools of eco
nomic thought. A third related to
Mexico, always a topic of debate, and
now somewhat complicated by recent
developments south of the Rio
On all of these entire harmony was
predicted by all the party leaders, al
though most of them conceded that
some interesting scrimmages possi
bly reaching the convention floor
would haye to be fought out before
there could be an agreement.
With the belated arrival from
Washington of several senators, rep
resenting extremes of Republican
opinion on the treaty, the long senate
fight over the League of Nations vir
tually was transferred to the con
ference rooms here.
The irreconcilables and the mild
reservationists of the senate are pre
pared for a hard battle on the treaty
plank. Senator Borah, of Idaho, a,
leader of the irreconcilables, arrived
late in the day with a plank which
will have the backing of the Johnson
forces. The mild reservationists held
numerous conferences and prepared
to draft a plank for submission to
Ogden Mills, chairman of the execu
tive committee on policies and plat
"We will submit our plank to the
resolutions committee," said Senator
Borah, "and if we do not see it in
.the platform we will offer it in the
Senator Borah was not ready to
make the Johnson-Bor?h plank pub
lic, but said it would be presented to
the resolutions committee.
It was learned that the mild reser
vationists plank would demand a con
structive policy fpr ratification of the
Versailles treaty with protective res
ervations and an endorsement of the
stand of senators who voted for the
Lodge reservations. Senator Lodge,
who arrived late today, deferred con
ferences on the treaty, but predicted
thai., an agreement between the va
rious groups would be reached.
With the plank on Mexico in. its
formative stage there was a general
feeling that little trouble would be
encountered in bringing an agree
ment. The declarations prepared at
Washington by Senator Fall, of Mex
ico, however, providing for American
intervention unless Mexico mended
its ways, ran into some opposition,
and it was suggested that it might be
modified to omit altogether thc ref
erence to possible military interfer
ence by this government in the south
In thai case the plank would de
clare that recognition of the new re
gime in Mexico City should be with
held until certain guarantees had
been made. There also would be in
attack on 'President Wilson's Mexi
can policy and a general statement
on the necessity of protecting Ameri
can rights. Two former American am
bassadors to Mexico, Henry P. Fletch
er, of Pennsylvania, and Henry Lane
Wilson, of Indiana, are in consulta
tion here in consultation with others
on the subject.
Shaping the industrial relations
plan revived many old animosities
and brought into focus several of the
issues raised by recent strikes and un
rest. On this plank the supporters of
Senator Johnson are generally ex
pected to have a program of their
own and various other elements of
the party are counted on to bring in
proposals that will run counter to the
views of some delegates. None of
these elements has yet disclosed its
band, however, and the whole sub
ject is influx.
Organized agricultural interests to
day planned their campaign to urge
adoption of platform planks dealing
with agricultural enterprises, Presi
dent C. S. Barrett and other offieers
of the national board of farm or
ganizations, meeting and appointing
committees to present their cause to
the resolutions committee.
The platform committee is expect
ed to adopt virtually unchanged rec
ommendations respecting agriculture
of the national committee's body on
platforms and policies headed by Sen
ator Caper of Kansas.

The ancient Greek idealized the body; he lavished attention upon
it. Health was a priceless boon-for only in perfect health lay hap
piness, personal efficiency, an honest heritage to his children.
Keep fit ! Enjoy the same glorious health that inspired the Greeks
of old-in their arts and in their games. It is yours merely for the
observance of certain laws of Nature. And the first of these is
Nujol will keep the poisonous food waste moving out of your body.
It works on an entirely new principle.
Instead of forcing or irritating the system, it simply softens the food waste. This
enables the many tiny muscles in the walls of the' intestines, contracting and
expanding in their normal way, to squeeze the food waste along so that it
passes naturally out of the system.
Nujol thus prevents constipation because it helps Nature maintain easy, thorough
bowel evacuation at regular intervals-the healthiest habit in the world.
Nujol is absolutely harmless and pleasant to take. Try it.
Nujol is sold by all druggists in sealed bottles only, bearing Nujol Trade >
