MANY [[ADERS WANT

RIVAL PLANKS DRAFTED

San Francisco, June 27.-Both wets
and drys today launched their planks
on the Democratic seas of 'alcoholic
differences, with a stormy passage
promised to the final harbor of the
For the drys, William J. Bryan made
public his proposed plank, a sweeping
declaration for enforcement of the
Volstead law without increase in be
verages alcoholis contents.
From the wet camp came alternative
planks drafted by Postmaster General
Burleson. One declares for "individual
liberty" and modification of the Vol
stead law to remove its "drastic and
unreasonable features" and the alter
nate for amendment permitting bever
ages "in fact not intoxicating."
The planks are to be presented tothe
resolutions committee upon its organi
zation and regardless of the outcome
there it was generally expected that
the liquor fight would reach the con
vention itself. 4
With both wet and dry factions
working hard through the Sabbath,
there also was a strong movement to
prevent any mention of the liquor ques
tion in the platform, a movement
backed by many forceful leaders.
The Bryan prohibition plank follows:

The proposed plank, which Mr. Bur
leson saidl he believed would meet the
sentiment of the "great majority of
the American people," reads:
"The open saloon has been generally
condemned by the American people as
a menace to society aid the well be
ing of the people and its restoration
should not be tolerated. The validity
of the eighteenth amendment to the
Constitution having been sustained by
the Supreme Court, any law enacted
under its authority must be strictly
enforced. However, the Democratic
party pledges its utmost endeavors to
prevent this new grant of federal
power from being exercised in such
manner as to become oppressive or de
