The French have agreed to this. Informed neutral observers here believe that Japan will keep a toe-hold in Indo-China, despite of ficial assurances that the warships will come home upon arrival of the Japanese “inspectorate.” 1 Then, they predict, Japan will 1 bide her time, awaiting a suitable opportunity for further inroads. Predictions continue that a Japan- 1 ese protectorate is contemplated 1 both for Indo-China and the Dutch 1 East Indies, after Japan can talk 1 this over with Germany and Italy.4 WARPLANES DESTROYED j LONDON, June 25—(#1—Fifty ' Italian ^warplanes have been de- , stroyed by British raiders in 10 , lays of African fighting, a British statement said tonight. 3 - ■ - - - -.— c WEATHER (Continued From Page One) WASHINGTON, June 25. — (IP) — '' Weather bureau records of temperature and rainfall for the 24 hours ending 8 p. m., in the principal cotton-growing areas and elsewhere: Station High Low Prec.

REPUBLICANS CALL ON W1LLK1E Members Of Tar Heel Delega tion Also Call At Offices Of Governor James PHILADELPHIA, June 25—(jf)— About 50 North Carolinians, includ ing some of the delegates to the republican national convention, visited Wendell Wilkie, one of sev eral presidential candidates, today. Prank Patton of Morganton said Willkie asserted reciprocal tariff was a dead issue. The Tar Heels also visited the offices of Governor Arthur James of Pennsylvania, who has refused to become an active candidate al though there has been evidences of support for him. Smaller groups visited Senators Taft and Vandenberg and others. Although the North Carolina dele gates have not polled themselves, they are admittedly split four ways with Taft leading. Jake Newell, State chairman, ex pressed satisfaction over the seat ing of the South Carolina delega tion headed by George Norwood, of Greenville, national committee man; J. Bates Gerald of Summer ton, state chairman; and Mrs. John E. Messervy of Charleston, national committeewoman. They won recognition over Joseph W. (Tieless Joe) Talbert, white-whisk ered veteran of republican conven tions since 1888. 3 HOOVER URGES ABOLISHMENT OF NEW DEAL* (Continued From Page One) of course, be determined. But the demonstration was obviously a hear ty tribute to the former president. Smiles Throughout it, he stood beside Martin, his face enwreathed in the broadest of smiles. In his address, Hoover emphat ically impressed upon the convention two primary objectives—to oust the New Deal and keep America at peave, "unless the western hemis phere is attacked.” At the same time, the former pres ident told the vast throng gathered in this huge and resounding audi torium that for America there was no such thing as “isolation”—that a realistic view of foreign problems dictated that all lawful assistance be extended to the Allies. And, he cautioned against exag geration of “our immediate dangers.” The ocean is broad, Hoover told republican delegates massed on the convention floo rbefore him, and an invader “must first pass our navy,” a navy which is "strong enough to stop anything in sight now.” At the very least, Hoover said, “this ocean and our magnificent navy give time for sober prepara tion.” Assails New Deal Relentlessly, Hoover castigated the New Deal for "following the suicide road for liberty that led to disaster in Europe. He said the republican party “must at once undertake seven stern tasks: * “We must restore and revitalize liberty in America. “We must restore and rebuild norals in government. “We must restore decent life and iving to one-third of our farmers ind workers, who have been chron cally submerged by the New D’eal. “We must restore competence to government. “We must prepare this nation to lefend the western hemisphere. “We must develop and maintain breign policies that keep us out of hese wars unless we are attacked We should facilitate all nations lghting for their freedom in pro iuring materials and munitions, but iubject to definite limitations which teep us out of war. “We must recall our people from he flabbiness of the New Deal. We oust re-establish stamina, character ind ideals. We must regenerate lope and confidence in America.” The delegates, and the thousands ipon thousands of spectators poured nto the hall after a day which for he most part saw the battle of the andidates reach a bewildered pause ?hile all awaited the next develop npnt Pew Favors Taft This was receipt of reports from several reliable quarters that Joseph E. Pew, effective leader of the 72 vote Pennsylvania delegation was prepared to throw more than fifty of these ballots to Senator Robert A. Taft of Ohio on the second ballot. Pew, however, denied it and insisted he was sticking with Gov. Arthur H. James of Pennsylvania "to the bitter end." The expectations' that the Penn sylvania votes might swing to Taft led some of those who have kept close tab on the situation to predict that while Thomas E. Dewey of New York would lead on the first ballot, he would be overtaken on the second by Senator Taft Where this situation would leave Wendell Willkie, and his almost un heard of climb from dark horse sta tus to a leading contender within a few weeks, was uncertain. Few accretions to the Willkie column were reported today, but his strength —particularly his secondary strength in potential gains on later ballots— was undeniable and was obviously keeping his opponents in a state of jittery alertness. Well Billed Discussing the situation, the dele gates swarmed to the great conven tion hall tonight to listen to and ap plaud Hoover. His associates had billed the address in advance as an unusually striking message and one which might well change.the course of thfe convention. For days they had made no secret of their hope that Hoover’s address I might arouse the delegates to a I mighty ovation, and so, impress them I 1>. Kj. as to start a swing which would lead to the former President’s nomi nation. The ticklish task of drawing up a plank on foreign affairs was com pleted before the dinner hour. Out of hours of controversy between ad vocates of strict aloofness from the war abroad, and a group favoring all possible material aid to the Al lies a plank emerged containing the following principal provisions: Sharp criticism of the Roosevelt administration on the ground that it had neglected the national defenses. A strong keep-out-of-war pledge. A promise to assist "oppressed people”—this to cover the question of helping the Allies materially. A If M. Landon, the party's 193^ nominee, who was chairman of the resolutions subcommittee which_dealt with the problem, told reporters the plank was so worded that whoever the nominee and whatever his views, he would be free to shape his course in accordance with world conditions and future war developments as they arise. With hard pounding, Chairmar Joseph W. Martin rapped the nighi session into order at 8:32 p. m. E S. T„ and presented John Andrew Gregg, of Kansas City, bishop ol the African Methodist Episcopal church, who prayed for divine ap proval of the deliberations and that "the desires of our hearts may be good.” "Keep us from war hysteria,’’ Bishop Gregg prayed. "Keep us calm and keep us at peace.’’ Red Cross War Fund $400 Short Of Goal The general war relief fund ol the Wilmington chapte • of the American Red Cross now totals $5,600 and only $400 is needed tc reach the goal of $6,000 assigned locally, Mrs. Ida B.
