And they will go into the coming cam

out the record of 11)12 and put Kan

of Kansas Day visitors.
Assurances from former leaders of I

can U aders a hope that they can wipe j
out the former records and send a.

J nt crest in the action of the Re
publics n state committee as affecting
the date find place of a state conven
tion to select delegates to the national
convention was keen. Every political
leader had an idea of his own con
cerning an instructed delegation.
Names of Candidates.
In view of the fact that Senator
Burton of Ohio, a presidential possi
bility, is the guest of honor at the
big dinner tonight, there was little ef
fort to outline definitely the selection
of a presidential preference. Rut in
the quiet, whispered conferences in
the hotels, the names of the candi
dates were generally discussed. The
Hughes boom was the big subject for
discussion. Instructions for J ustice
Hughes, regardless of his refusal to
consent to becoming a candidate, was
ntronirlv nrired. This action was unsh
ed most vigorously by V. Y. Morgan, '
lieutenant governor, and many close
friends of the state administration.
Among the conservative leaders,
however, there was a most definite
sentiment in favor of an uninstructed
delegation. They talked for a con
vention free from home obligations
and privileged to swing in behind the
candidacy of the strongest and most
available candidate before the June
Their Hat in King.
The policy of springing the names j
of new candidates before the Kansas 1
Iay club banqueters was little In evi- :
dence. With three exceptions- state
auditor, state treasurer and superin
tendent of public instruction all of
the present state officials are candi
dates for second terms. Frank Organ
of Howard, Daniel B. Dyer of Smith
Center, are the candidates for audi
tor, with little prospect for new can
didates Walter L. Payne of Burlingame,
president of the club; Wiley Cook of
Kansas City, assistant state treasurer;
Mfltt Weight man of Topeka, former
county treasurer, and Charles Evans
of Good land, are the treasurer candi
dates. No new names were suggested
by the Republicans who arrived early
for the big party dinner.
In the case of state superintendent
of public instruction, however, there
was a definite move for a new candi-
date. W. I. Ross, present incumbent,
is a candidate for a third term. Many
leaders expressed a desire not to load
the ticket with third term timber. The
Ross stand for the county unit sys
tem and his unpopularity through mo
tion picture censorship, were pointed
out as his weak points. Miss Lizzie
Wooster, of Kalina, was strongly urged
as a candidate. Other names will
probably be suggested before the din
ner crowd leaves Topeka late tonight.
Kvery congressional candidate, ex
cept P. R. Authony, Jr., and Phil I.
Campbell, present Republican in
cumbents from this state, are in To
pcka for the dinner. Many of the
congressional candidates brought
strong delegations of boosters. Otis
L. Rent on, of Oberlin, a well known
Sixth district candidate, distributed
TOO tickets among his friends from the
big northwest territory.
Fight for Officer.
There was but one real fight today
for offices of the club. The contest
concerned the secretaryship of the or
ganization. K. T. Thompson, elected
in 1915, is a candidate to succeed
himself, while Ralph Squires, of To
peka, register of deeds of Shawnee
county, is making a hard fight for the
Dr. J. W. Graybill, of Newton, was
slated to succeed Walter L. Payne, of
Rurlingame, as president of the club.
Graybill has a strong following, while
Payne, who served as secretary of the
club prior to his election to the presi
dency, is not a candidate.
The business meeting of the club
will be held this afternoon in Security
hall. New officers will be elected at
that time. Resolutions condemning
the policies of the national Demo
cratic administration and possibly
touching the policies of Kansas Re
publicans as affecting preparedness,
will be adopted. There is a decided
division of sentiment among the Re
publicans as affecting preparedness
and it is possible that the prospect of
a conflict wfll be dodged and the na
tional defense question pigeonholed.
The business meeting was called for
Among officers to be elected at to
day's meeting are: President, secre
tary and two vice presidents from
each of the eight congressional dis

i . l
For more than two score years
Kansas has been observing the anni
versary of its admission into the
Union as a state.
It was on January 29, 1861, after
the free state struggles in congress
and after the people of Kansas terri
tory had ratified the Wyandotte con
stitution, containing provisfon against
shivery or involuntary servitude except
for crime, that President Buchanan
approved the acticr, of congress and
signed the bill admitting Kansas as
the thirty-fourth of the United States.
There are many stories told of the
receipt of the news in Kansas and the
resultant rejoicing. Huge bonfires
were lighted in the various communi
ties as soon as the news was known
and the people joined in a common
celebration. It was said that the peo
ple of Lawrence first learned of the
admission through a copy of an extra
edition of the old Leavenworth Con
servative, which was taken personally
to Douglas county by the late jL. R
Anthony. Histories relate that the
people there began a celebration,
marked by songs and speecb.es, which
continued through the night.
It was through the schools of the
state that the anniversary of the day
first was observed on January 29,
1877. The day was set aside for the
study of Kansas, its history, its geog
raphy and its resources in some of
the cities. Especial attention was paid
to t he history of t he events of six
teen years before. Similar observances
were held in succeeding years. Schools
in Wichita, Topeka, Lawrence, Fort
Scott, Emporia, Clay Center. Paola
and other cities of the state, set aside
the day ' for celebrations; Then in
1Sn2. for the first iim a general
celebration of the anniversary of the
birt h of Kansas was held in the
E;ich year since then it has been
observed in the schools and by or
ganisations and churches throughout

Bant net at Masonic Temple.
The dinner tonight is the twenty
fifth annual banquet of the Kansas
Day club. Banqueters will be served
in Masonic Temple promptly at 6:30
o'clock. Arrangements have been
made for the handling of more than
800 men and women. At noon today
there were but few tickets available.
Indications point to one of the largest
crowds in the history of the club and
the prospect that every plate in tho
big banquet hall will be sold before
doors are opened. The few remaining
tickets were on sale at local hotels and

the eagle our national emblem. It
was the story of my warrior brothers
that enticed Coronado to come from
the Montezuma country to the north
east corner of Kansas. It was O-na-te,
the Spanish explorer that gave my
tribe its name two generations after
Coronado came to our wig-warns in
the village of the Twenty-lour. He
called us Es-cansa-ques, the disturb
ers. The pale faces in Kansas seem
to have inherited the literal meaning
of the name. In 172 7 the (Jrand Vil

Jesuit Fathers the first established
on Kansas soil.
"My tribe went up the Kaw to
Menokin, four miles west of Topeka.
They were to possess 30 miles each

where 'the humped cows' are most

Mrs. Rose spoke as follows: Mrs.
Ware knew Kansas. She had seen its
wooded hills and glimpsed its prai

lean years. She remembered the
grasshoppers and that other scourge,
