Charleston, 8. C„ Feh. 15.—(AP)
—Major General Charles P. Sum
rnerall, former chief of staff of
the United States Army today
withdrew his resignation as presi
dent of the Citadel, the state mili
tary college.
"I regard to the invitation from the
Kentucky legislature not only as a
great compliment to me personally
but as an even greater compliment
to the State of North Carolina and
the members of the legisla
tures, viho as a result of the wise
legislation they have enacted in the
last several sessions, have served to
put North Carolina among the leading
states in the country and served to
attract nation-wide attention to it,’’
Governor Gardner said.
"For the credit for whatever North
Carolina ha edone to bring its govern
mental machinery up to date and en
able it to meet new and difficult con
ditions must be given to the people of
the State as a whole and to the mem
bers of the legislatures that enacted
the laws. It Is true that I suggested
or recommended some of the changes.
But the reason they weer enacted In
to law was because they appealed to
the good sense of the people rather
than because I or anyone else sug
gested them."

Washington, Feb. 15.—(AP>—A

Important elements of the Demo

harmony In the year of presiden
tial election has faded to a
shadow.
Defln I tee statements of oppos

Franklin D. Roosevelt and his
supporters on the one hand and
that section of the party leader
ship which agrees with the views
of Jouett Shouse, director of

ters under Chairman John J.
Raskoh.
Shouse has advocated ihat delegates,
not be instructed but be left free to
choose their candidate in the light of
conditions at the moment the con
vention is held and the ballots are
cost. Governor Roosevelt sees in the
plan disfranchisement of the party's
rank and silo with the decision
thrown to the dickering of powerful
leaders nothing more than a back
room nomination.
Shouse and Rsskeb disclaimed any
intention to atop Roosevelt or any
other candidate with the non-instruc
tion plan but Roosevelt’s candidacy,
now rolling up a mounting total ‘of
votes all over the country, is the one
most threatened before the conven

the New York governor has not ques
