STOKES United Press Staff Corrcepondent WASHINGTON, June 18.— The coming campaign will be a holiday for the phrase makers. It will be a battle of slogans. Hoover, though nQt a dramatic figure, inspired a whole unabridg ed sloganry—if such it might be called—during the war. From all indications his campaign mana gers are going to use the came tactics in the presidential battle. ‘Who but Hoover?” “Who- Hoover?” These were some of the phrases used before the delegates answerd the first question, convincingly. • ana GOV. ALFRED E. SMITH, of • New York, also has been a sloganeer. From the East Side streets have come some racy phrases that have caught on. Smith probably will borrow some of these, or produce more in the same vein, if named the Demo cratic candidate. Long they have called the New York Governor “Al.” Incongrous as it may seem, they are beginning to call Hoover “Herb.” That bespeaks a human note that will be injected into the com ing campaign. Just what turn the slogans will take cannot be told yet, but an ef fort will be made to "humanize” Hoover. Slogans are queer things. Often they are meaningless, but the most meaningless often catch on. n a u lively campaign songs al ready arc on the Hoover bandstand. Smith has “The Side walks of New York.” “He taught us to conserve—to preserve—and to serve” is a line in one of the Hoover songs, recall ing the sugar-saving, meat-spar ing days of the war. From Hoover’s farm enemies, has come the slogan—Borrowed from the war days. “Hooverize and Pauperize.” It’s going to be a pen and ink war.

FLEMING KANSAS, CITY, Mo., June 18.— Republican leaders studying the problem of carrying the farm belt States, believe their main problem will be in about forty-five rural con vention districts in six States. The belief is based on a study of the convention vote on the McNary- Haugen farm relief plank, which was 267 to 817. The Kansas and Nebraska delega tions divided on the question, and Oklahoma was solidly against the McNary-Haugen plank. Illinois, North Dakota and South Dakota delegations voted solidly for the plank and Indiana, lowa and Minnesota cast large majorities for it. Much of the farm missionary work may be confined to rural Illi nois,. rural Indiana. South and North Dakota, Minnesota and lowa. Farm feeling against Hoover in Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma, it is thought, is already largely allayed by the selection of Senator Curtis for vice president.
