> FIRST DRAFT OF PLATFORM Farm-Aid and Prohibi tion Included; Cor ruption Plank Is Without Names KANSAS CITY, June 11.—uR)—The tentative draft of the republican party platform as embodying the ad ministration ideas on t hequestions of the day was completed today by Senator Smoot of Utah, who is to be chairman of the platform committee, and those who have been- collabor ating with him. This draft will be presented to the committee after it* formal appoint ment tomorrow by the convention at the open session. Along with it there will be offered many other sep arate planks for consideration by tne committee, including half a dozen drawn by Senator Borah of Idaho, chairman of the senate foreign rela tions committee. While the Idahoan may get the vote of his delegation for the presi dency, he stated today that his sole interest was in the platform which the party is to adopt and that he wanted the issues clearly set forth, with strong pronouncements on pro hibition and corruption in govern ment and politics. Senator Borah’s corruption plank carries no names hut it was under stood that the question of naming some of those who have figured in government and political turmoils in recent years would be proposed to the resolutions committee. i The prohibition plan drafted by ML- , Borah, and which specifically calls for rigid enforcement of the eigh teenth amendment, was submitted to Smoot several days ago and the un derstanding is that it was satisfac- j tory to the resolution committee, chairman. This plang has been approved by four of the candidates for the presi dential nomination and Senator j Borah expects its approval by the j committee. His other plunks deal ] with the outlawry of war and foreign . affairs geenrally, with disclosures in the federal trade commission investi gation of the utilities industry and I the equalization of the tariff as be- | tween agriculture and industry. While party leaders still are hope ful of setting all controversies over the platform in the committee, it was conceded that there was a possibility of several of the questions coming j before the convention through the ve hicles of minority reports. Efforts to compose the views of the farm leaders on the agricultural plank atilt went forward today but with no immediate prospect cf suc cess. What has been denominated as the more “radical'* of the leaders still insist that the equalization fee be re ferred to specifically in the platform, j This is strongly opposed by other farm group* a* well a* by the admin istration forces. PENNSYLVANIA __ Hi (Continued from page one.) assurance of the Hooverites is that it means just that, and that there need no longer he a fear of a Cool idge stampede. From another quarter far aero** the country came a similar word of cheer from the Hoover managers. Senator Borah of Idaho, addressing the eleven delegates from his state [ who are pledged to vote for him if fce wants it. declared but two candi dates remain in the field—Hoover and Coolidge—and said that in his cr.inion it would be “highly danger iu»” for the party to attempt to force the nomination of Coolidge. On the strength of this the Hoover managers chalked up eleven more for Hoover, bringing their total very close to the nominating mark of 545 without even counting Pennsylvania. Still the allies were not ready to > quit. In a burst of confidence Scn Ltor “Jim” Watson of Indiana, whose home state is supporting him ior the nomination, declared his in formation was that Hoover had been ctopped. ■ Hoover In Touch .With Convention WASHINGTON, June II.—<*>•— Herbert Hoover, secretary of com merce has assumed active interest in his fight for the presidential nom ination from the republican national* convention. He is in direct and con stant touch with his forces through £ a learcd telephone wire from his desk here to the Hoover Kansas City headquarters. In a room adjoining his office Hover has a radio set in readiness to give him the reports from the [ tloor. The telephone wire to the Kansas City has seen hard service, and there has been no phase of the maneuvering of Hoover’s forces of which he has not known. Secretary cf the Interior Work, on the ground at Kansas City, has possibly been his most frequent interrogator in the telephone conversations, but there have been others. The tenor of the exchange* be tween Kansas City and Washington is said to have been increasingly cheerful over the week-end. Public ly. the secretary will not break his I silence until the verdict of the con vention has been reached. Borah For Hoover On First Ballot KANSAS CITY.

Coolidge passing the summer vacation period at Cedar Island Lodge, near Brule. Wis., this building, the central high school in Superior, Wis., probably will house the executive offices of the government during the summer months. Superior is 26 miles from the summer White House and President Coolidge probably will visit the executive offices for a short time every day, driv ing the distance in one of the government cars in the Coolidge retinue. Everett Sanders, secretary to the president, is to have charge of the offices. part in the selection of the presi-1 dential nominee. The senator let it l>e known that he was willing tu have the Idaho votes go to Secretary Hoover on an early ballot, even on the first if it should appear desirable to insure Idaho a place in Hoover councils by this method. No definite vote was taken by the delegation on this ques tron and further conferences will be held. Women Aviators Delayed By the Weather Report TRKPASSEY. N. F..

NEW YORK COTTON NEW YORK, June 11.—The cotton market opened steady at an advance of 4 to 9 points on buying cn over-Sunday reports of rains in the central belt and Texas, and steady late Liverpool cables.
