PRICE FIVE CENTS H CONTEST OVER - I Planks on League of Nations I and Industrial Relations Cause of Much Worry I c NOBODY KNOWS WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN WEEK I , Old Time Politician Amazed at Modern Method of Naming I Standard BearSr H CHICAGO, June 5. (By the Asso ciated Press.) The contest between I tno varIous aspirants for the Republi- yv?6 can presidential nomination- Is mo 1 1 mentarlly obscured by preliminary contests over tho platform. One is the league of nations plank and the other is tho Industrial rela- IWKf tions plank. The latter, is acknowl- SiJiJ I edged to be loaded with dynamite and WVM- tho former is so surrounded by counter claims that it has been arranged, and that it has not been arranged, that 1 the real truth of the situation is not I apparent. . Morft of all the practical politicians ' however, were predicting today thai any coalition of party leaders which presents the successful wolution for the league of nations plank will bo able to nominate their canidatc for the presidency. Indiana Points Way. The league of nations plank In the' Indiana state Republican platform brought hero by Senator Watson, who is tho foremost candidate for chair man of the resolutions committee.) scorns to be the nucleus around which j the descuEsIon is centering and it may provide tho basis for the agreement. It declares in effect that the Rcpub f lican party denounces tho league of national covenant as It was brought from Versailles by Pres. Wilson, but it j iV docs not close the door of Its accept-, stP anccs with reservations. j ' At ttiot nnlnt Ilia rraf r'a i 1 nn t?tft of r It various degrees and the Irreconclla- blcs appear as the elements to be brought Into harmony. .Most Qf uie party whips seem to be agreed that the convention cannot take any action which could be construed as a repu diation of the Republican leaders In the senate. Compromise seems to be inevitable and tho. predictions of the field marshals Is that the compromise will develop the candidate. To Much To Hay. On tho side Hues of the big fight thore is a scrimmage going on between the leaders of the party in congress and the leaders of the party through , out the country- Many of the latter have come to Chicago openly express- ing the feeling that senators and rop- l resentatives have had too much to say ( in the divisions of the party's affairs c and that some consideration must be I; given to thePhicftains from the pro vinces. Tho statement by Gov. Beeck rj man, of Rhode Island, that he was not ii sure whether he was going to "a Re- ul publican convention or a senatorial l caucus," has ben construed as a notice co from the governors and state leaders "n that they will demand to be heard. "Big Three" Confident- tlol Judging by their degre of pre- the convention activity. Wood. Lowden and eon, Johnson might properly be designated dai the "big three." On one proposition tho their managers are fully agreed. They day all claim victory. They differ on how uoj it is to be achieved or on what bal- ner lot it Is to be hut they assure all hi ll quirers there is no doubt about It. eoj Seventy-two hours bpfore Senator I'alj L.odge's gavel drops In th big coliseum Ifej a composite talking machine record of f ( the expressions of the managers would anl say: "We are perfectly satisfied with M, the situation.

One hears with the. mm greatest degree of finality "J-owden or H a dark horso." and "Johnson after , mmm! the tpird ballot," or "Wood after all Wj the others have been eliminated." .H Army of Writers..' - H Convention time brings to Chicago HI a small army of political writers who JH " feel that by analysing tho cross cur J.'l rents in the muddy and turbulent f (H stream which swirls about the hotel H lobbies and in and out of the inner i,,H coves of the campaign managers' of- lH fices, Ihoy can discern 'the course of.
