Strategy Prevented Impending
Eupture Over Plank for
World Court.
■How the Cool Mg-e harmony pic
ture Cleveland narrowly escaped
wreckage can now be told. The hero
’ of the story is Ambassador Charles
Beecher Warren, who never gave a
more astute exhibition of his diplo
matic talents. The villain in the
Piece is Albert Jeremiah Ueveridge,
former United States senator from
Indiana. The plot of the episode
ranges around the world court plank
inserted in the U. O. P. platform at
the behest of President Coolidge and
in triumphant defiance of the irrecon
cilable old guard,
e The senatorial anti-league group
in ihe convention, led by Senators
Henry Cabot Hodge and George
Wharton Pepper, tound themselves
completely worsted on the world
court plank in the committee on
resolutions No representations made
by plank advocates before the com
mittee carried the weight that was
exerted by the organizations which
( ui g»d the inclusion of the Harding;-
Uiughes-Coolidge proposal for Amer
fican adhesion to the Permanent Court
of international Justice founded by
the league of nations. Finding them
selves hopelessly in a minority in
the committee on resolutions, the
anti-leaguers, it appears, decided to
take their fight to the floor of the
c ? n \^V on ' Hither Lodge or Pepper
would have been the natural foeman
to advocate the anti-Coolidge world
•court, along lines each of them had
already projected in the Senate. But
It was decided to intrust the silver
tongued Beveridge of Indiana with
the task. Beveridge was-ready to
throw himself into the breach.' He
prepaj-ed a powerful speech readv to
Uncork at the psychological moment.
Warren Introduces Strategy.
The one-time boy orator of the Wa
bash timed his attack from the floor
for the hour when the report of the
committee on platform should be pre
sented for adoption. Then the finesse
of Charles Beecher Warren, chairman
, thf “ committee, came into deadly
play. Warren read the platform to the
convention. He stressed its vital
points with fine effect. The references
to Warren G. Harding, to the neces
sity of electing a Republican Con
gress that would accord loyal sup
port to a Republican President; the
party’s belief in prohibition law en
forcement; finally, the recommenda
tion of American entrv into the world
court on Coolidge lines—all tnese
were presented to the delegates with
emphasis and eloquence. When this
had been done, Warren took occasion
to inform the convention that the
platform, as just submitted, had won
the unanimous approval of the com
mittee on resolutions, "with the ex
ception of one state.” As he mention
ed that "one state.” Warren looked
meaningly in the direction of the re
calcitrant delegation from Wisconsin.
At least five times, before he finally
left the speaker's rostrum, Warren
referred to the harmony and unani
mity with which everybody but the
’’one state” had accepted the party’s
charter of principles.
Had Beveridge in Mind.
The strategy of the ambassador to
Mexico was not understood by the
convention at the time. Hundreds of
delegates do not understand it yet, j
and nyver may. unles.- this narrative ;
i comes to their attention. But the i
♦ underlying purpose of Warren’s tau
tological emphasis pn the words “with j
the exception of one state” had, in i
fact, more than the Wisconsin dele- J
gation at the back of it. Jt had Al- j
bert Jeremiah Beveridge in mind. too. j
Its manifest purpose was to discour- .
age Beveridge, or any other ’Tegular” j
Republican in the convention, from J
doing anything that would align him )
with the despised and discredited del- |
egation from "Bob” La Follette’s j
state. Beveridge kept his seat and j
his tongue. He made no effort to j
combat the world court plahk.
Neither did anybody else, except in so
(ar as the Wisconsin delegation’s
Blanket minority report on platform
is concerned
Some of his friends say that when
Beveridge was persuaded that dis
cretion was the better part of valor
on his world court fight plans, he au
tomatically buried another hope. That
hope was the possibility that a bril
iwrnt or successful attack on the court
l"ank would “cross-of-gold” Bever
idge into the vice presidential nom
ination. Had the convention got out
of hand on that issue, in principal !
consequence of a fervent oratorical i
plea by the Indianian. politicians con- I
cede that it might have been impossi
ble to prevent a stampede in his fa
vor for the vice presidential nomina- j
tion. But the anti-leaguers reckoned
without their Warren.
Handy Man of Convention.
The Michigan man, in fact, was
the handy man of the leaders who
ran things on the speakers’ plat
form. Phil Campbell of Kansas ably
• directed the parliamentary strategy
of proceedings and made a flawless
record But Warren was the one
* always called into counsel as a
pinch-hitter on other occasions. Had
he been allowed to prevail when the
convention found itself in'a jam over
Louden and second place some of
the historic embarrassment that en
sued might have been averted. It
was Warren, at least, who suggested
and carried through the proposal for
a ninety-minute adjournment Thurs
day evening, after Lowden had been
nominated, in order that the con
vention authorities ir'ght get in di
rect touch with him as to his willing
ness to accept or otherwise. Also
it was in Warren's mind that a din
. ner-hour pause would result in clear
' ing the atmosphere in all directions.
■Without consulting anybody, but act
ing wholly on his own natural
’’hunch” as to what the tangled sit
uation demanded. Warren stepped to
the front of the platform, proposes,
a recess and it was voted in a rush.
The convention bandmaster, with
unconscious sense of appropriateness,
I struck up a popular melody of the
1 moment at the instant the Lowden
puzzle was most baffling. He had the
band play "WhatTl 1 Do?” When
ever lie Cleveland convention was
in a whalTl-I-do quandary it drafted
Charles Beecher Warren. No wonder
he is already named as a Secretary
of State hi a future Coolidge cabinet,
if such there is to be. F. W. W.
