Politics Shunned in 3-Hour Conference for “General Chat,” They Insist. By the Associated Press. A three-hour White House confer ence between President Roosevelt and a group of Senators generally desig nated as liberals broke up early today with participants Insisting poetics was not mentioned. “A general chat" was the descrip tion given to the long session by the Senators. They declared that among the sub jects under discussion were economics, government, rural electrification, the Supreme Court and the Guffey de cision. The effect of sun spots on the weather also was mentioned, said Senator La Follette, Progressive, of Wisconsin. vumio ut vii wiv cumvivitvo "Civ ; Senators Wagner, Democrat, of New York; Wheeler, Democrat, of Mon tana; Schwellenbach, Democrat, of Washington; Minton, Democrat, of Indiana; Norris, Republican, of Ne braska, and Shipstead, Farmer-La borite, of Minnesota. Felix Frank furter of the Harvard Law School, a presidential consultant, wai there also, but Norris said he was just a “listener." Norris, who left an hour and a half before the others, said there had been “a general discussion.” Wagner said “we talked about Gov ernment and a lot pf other things, but it was more of a social gathering." It was Shipstead who recalled that something had been said about the Supreme Court’s decision which invali dated the Guffey coal control act, but the Farmer-Labor Senator could not remember what it was. Hopeful newspaper men then asked him if any conclusions were reached, to which he replied, ’’Did you ever see any conclusions reached at any con ference?" Speculation had been aroused be cause of the fact that the Senators, while representing tour parties, all lean toward the New Deal. There was a belief that pending leg islation was not the principal subject on the conference agenda because most of the legislative parleys at the White House Include only Democrats. Prior to the meeting some Senators expressed the opinion the President wanted to talk informally with “lib erals" of various parties and sections of the country on campaign matters. Lehman (Continued From First Page.) prompted hi* return to private activi ties. President Roosevelt yesterday ex pressed a hope that Lehman would cee his way clear to run again. He said he had known for some time of the Governor’s intention. Chairmen Jsmes A. Farley of the Democratic National Committee said at Grand Rapids that Lehman's de cision meant “a loss to the State and to the party.” Comment of Wagner. Senator Wagner, Democrat, of New York declared Lehman “is so indis pensable to the State that we’ve just got to draft him,” while Senator Copeland, Democrat, of New York said his decision was a “great loss.” Justice Ferdinand Pecora of the New York Supreme Court expressed the hope that Lehman “can be pre vailed upon to reconsider.” Pecora conferred yesterday with the President, but told reporters that poli ucs was not, discussed. No indication came from the Gover nor that he might reconsider, however, and what effect a draft movement would have remained to be seen. Chairman Melvin C. Eaton of the New York State Republican Com mittee, said he was "not surprised" at the announcement, but State Sena tor George R. Pearon, mentioned as a Republican candidate for Governor, aald he was “very much surprised.” Whether the New York situation was discussed last night at a White House conference attended by several legislators was not made known. Sena tor Wagner was among the Senators who participated in the session. Other political developments yes terday included a decision of Demo cratic leaders on Capitol HiU to re cess Congress during the national con ventions at Cleveland and Philadel phia if the session has not already adjourned. Pour years ago Congress remained in session throughout the convention period. Democrats in State convention at Maryland yesterday formally pledged the 10 convention votes to President Roosevelt. Democrats in Michigan today as sembled to pick delegates at large. G. O. P. SEES VICTORY ALBANY, N. Y., May 21 (/P).— Gov.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., May 21.— Postmaster General Parley last night predicted "the governor of a typical prairie State ’ would be the Republi can Presidential nominee, and then uwrted his election would prove a "perilous experiment.” Speaking before the Michigan State Democratic convention, Parley, as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, did not mention his "prob able" nominee by name. Oov. Alt M. Landon of Kansas Is the only mid western State Executive now prom inent In the Republican nominee race. Farley criticized the man he did not name as devoid of experience In national affairs, and predicted that It he Is the Republican standard bearer "even Kansas" will not be In the Roosevelt doubtful column. Hints DuPonts Back Landon. The man he predicted would get the nomination, Farley said, was scarcely known to the country a little more than a year ago. He said he "gueaMd" this man would be elevated because "the DuPont Liberty League crowd is less afrsid of him than It is of more widely known and more ex perienced statesmen who have been mentioned In connection with the Re publican nomination." In another section of his speech. Farley said the people were being asked to believe, "in this progressive section of the country, at least.” that the Re publican party "is purging itself of the old predatory spirit and that It means hereafter under new leaders to go for ward in the path of advancement and care for the plain people.” He added: "Do you believe that fairy story? You know how the Republican party Is being financed during the present cam paign. Does It seem likely to you—a hard-headed, practical people—that the Du Pont Liberty League, that col lection of multi-millionaires, and their satellte lawyers and paid propagand ists, is going to back any program that would run counter to their own Inter ests, habits and special privileges? Discusses Candidates. "This group, that has turned every emergency that had to be faced by our country into an opportunity to pile up enormoua fortunes, is paying the bills of any and practically every real or pretended organization that an nounces it is against President Roose velt.” Turning to Republican nomination possibilities, he said: "We do not yet know Just what Re publican figure will be put up to op pose Franklin D. Roosevelt next No vember. From present Indications, It appears probable it will be a gentle man of whom none of you had even heard a little more than a year ago. "Talk about reckless experiments In Government, which is one of our critics’ favorite charges against the administration! Could there by any more perilous experiment than putting the complex and highly delicate con trol of our Government into the hands of a man destitute of experience and devoid of practice in national, still less in international matters. "You knew Roosevelt. He had been In public life from early manhood as a member of the New York Legisla ture. He had been part of the Wood row Wilson administration. He had twice been an eminently successful Governor or the most populous state in the Union. Responsibility was nothing new to him. The problems of administration he had encountered in almost every form. Cites Support of Press. “What do you know about the In dividual who now appear* aa the moet probable candidate of the minority party? “True, he is being exalted by the anti-administration press. If we ac cept this version we have been enter taining In obscurity a genius in gov ernment; another Lincoln, with dashes of Coolidge in his composition. I think all of us who have any famil iarity with politics are cognizant of the process of building up the com monplace into the remarkable. “This gentleman may be all his boosters present him as being, but he Is nearly BO years old, and It would be something new if he possessed all the magnificent qualities of administra tion, all the knowledge or public ques tions, all the noble attributes with which his champions endow him, with out his fame getting beyond the borders of his own 8tate. "I believe he made a moderate fortune in the oil business, though his biographers say he was educated as a lawyer, but success in oil is not generally regarded as particularly fit ting a man or the presidency. "I am not, of course, in possession of exact knowledge of why the Re publican party chooses to put him on a pedestal, but if I were permitted to guess, I would be Inclined to believe It was because he was elected ®ov emor of a typical State.” Factional Fight Averted. Michigan Democrats averted an anticipated factional fight at their pre primary convention yesterday by in dorsing all comers for the major nominations that will be at stake In the primary next September. Senator James Couxens, Republican, of Michigan, was one of six persons indorsed for the Democratic nomina tion for United States Senator. His name was offered as “one who cannot understand the fight of the Republican party for the almighty dollar and its disregard for human rights.” Land Only for Lease.
