DRAFTING THE 1932 DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM Chicago, June 2!). i/P>—Roosevelt headquarters promptly disavowed any connection today with an attempt attributed by Frank Scofield, manager for Melvin Traylor. to Roosevelt supporters to have Traylor withdraw lrom the campaign. When reached at his office at the First National Bank, Traylor said: ■•I never knew of the thing until newspapermen called me early this Morning. Then 1 verified it from Mr. Scofield, I have the highest regard for Mr. Scofield and have known him for many years-. This will in no way change the relationship between us in his el fort in my behalf. I have been too busy in tlie banking business the last few days to pay much attention to the campaign." Col. R. G. Dunham, retired Chicago business man and Traylor's "floor manager" said his only information on the subject came from Scofield. The Chicago linker said he had no intention of withdrawing his name from the convention.

Consider Bill For Philippine Freedom Washington, .Tune 29.—OP)—Consideration of the ITawes.Cutting bill for Philippine independence was begun in the Senate today immediately after the last of the appropriation bills had been passed and sent to conference. Til" bill immediately struck an obstacle when Senator Copeland. (1)., N. Y.'i an opponent, demanded that ! it be rend in full. I Copdand has contended it would bp unconstitutional for Congress to five the Philippines without a vote of the people of this country. Democratic leaders were insistent that the bill be held before the Senate until voted upon, but there were hints from the Republican side that it would be laid aside if debate was too prolonged.

Chairman Bingham of the insular, affairs committee said he regretted j Copeland "as "taking devious means I to prevent a vote on the bill." > Bishop Hoyt M. Dobbs Tuesday night, continued his addresses at tli* Seashore Pastors' School in session at the Campgrounds with a striking delineation of the life and character of John Ormond Keener, Me:hodist, preacher and educator. i Dr. John Ormond Keener was a son of Bishop John C. Keener, long a bishop in the Methodist: church and for years one of the dominant figures in the affairs of the old Seashore Campground. Dr. Keener was converted at the altar at the .Seashore Tabernacle one Sunday night while on vacation from Southern University. He went back to the university and prepared himself for th>' Methodist ministry. Bishop Dobbs portrayed him as a man six feet four inches in height and weighing over two hundred ninety pounds and with a character in pro-porton to his physical build, lie -was a ffreat. teacher and a great: educator. Bishop Dobbs defined a teacher; as one who creates a hunger for knowledge and a thirst for virtue. He. said education is the ability to react correctly to every experience of life. He prophesied that tiie great shifting in emphasis in the next decade would be from the field of pedagogy to the field of psychology and declared that tiie ministry should prepare themselves for this change.

OP)—Frank Scofield, the Traylor campaign manager, chtuged in a statement he dictated to newspaper men today, that an unidentified man whom he said described himself ns a Roosevelt worker had offered him $10,000 to sign a statement withdrawing Traylor's name. Scofield called a group of newspapermen into his office and dictated the f(.dlowing: "Last night about midnight a man I never snv before approached me and said, "Are you Scofield'/' 1 told him I was and he said, 'Can I have a private conference with you'/' We ■went into a corner o£ my office. He held up a statement for me to sign. When I asked him to let me t.ake it he said, "No. Just read it.' The statement byre my name as manager of the. Traylor campaign and read as follows : " '1 have just received a wire from Melvin A. Traylor thanking me for my activities in his behalf and re-(pies-ling me to withdraw his name from the race.' "1 denied that the statement was true and refused to sign it. He replied, 'Don't be foolish. The anti-Roosevelt machine is going to crack. You might as well be the beneficiary.' "I told him I had nothing to do with the Illinois delegation and could not release them if 1 wanted to. lie said. 'Listen, I'm serious. This means Si0.000 to you and a million votes for Roosevelt if he goes over on the first ballot and this statement from you will do the job.' "I promptly told him I would not be a party to any such transaction. He said he was sorry if he had offended me. 1 told him to take it anyway he wanted to. He got up and said, 'Think it over. I'll lie back.' I told him in forceful language not to come back because I would not see him. He said lie was doing publicity work for tiie Roosevelt organization. 1 had never seen him anywhere before." Scofield said he did not ask the man his name. It was a hot session, indeed, when eôatless members of the special committee appointed to draft a 1932 Democratic platform gathered at Chicago—and this picture indicates as much. These men, picked by Resolutions Chairman Gilbert M. Hitchcock, are: (left to right) Senator Carter Glass, Yirgina : Senator David I. Walsh, Massachusetts; A. Mitchell Palmer of Washington, D. C. : Senator Burton K. Wheeler, of Montana; Jos. C. O'Mahoney. Wyoming; Senator Cordell Hull, Tennessee; Wm. G. McAdoo, California and William A. Comstock, Michigan. SOLIDIFIED UNITY APPARENT IN BANK ORGANIZATION PLAN Ushering in a half holiday called by Mayor J. W. Milner to give opportunity for the proponents of the new bank to crystalize efforts toward bringing to a successful conclu-sion the campaign for signatures of creditors to the new bank plan, 133 Gulfport citizens assembled at the noon hour today for a luncheon at the Hotel Markham. Presided over by Mayor J. W. Milner, the luncheon event was marked by a 'spirit of friendliness and cooperation that indicated a m"re solidified unity of effort behind the bank reorganization movement than has been exhibited heretofore. The Mayor giving an array of figures relative to the proposed new bank plan as contrasted to what might be expected under liquidation, spoke at some length and then presented B. C. Cox, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, who made an impassioned plea for community effort in regard to the banking situation. R. 0. Bickerstaff. member of the citizens committee working in behalf of the new bank, made an address along specific and definite lines relative to the work of procuring signatures of depositors to the creditors agreements. In accordance with his plan, lists of depositors not yet having signed were passed out to those who would agree to contact them, each volunteer working being given the names of ten. In addition to obtaining signatures, under the Bickerstaff plan, reasons given by those declining to sign ai to be reported and efforts made to iron out objections. Rev. .T. L. Neill. pastor of the First Methodist church, spoke at some length upon the advantages of the new bank plan as. amended, following a citizens meeting some days ago and gave as his opinion that the depositors would receive from 20 to 25 per cent: more in returns under the amended plan than-tinder the original plan or by liquidation. At the suggestion of Rev. Neill. whose talk was for the most part along the spiritual aspects of the banking situation, the blessings of Deity were invoked upon the workers who are going out to obtain signatures and Dr. Oscar E. Goddard of Nashville, Tenn., a Coast visitor, was called upon for this prayer. Entertainment in the way of a musical program for the luncheon was furnished by Mrs. C. B. Foster, violinist, and Mrs. William Estopinal, pianist. BIG DEFICIT AT END OF YEAR Government's Fiscal Year Draws to Close Today with $2.900.000,000 On Wrong Side of Ledger.

SHAEFFER Washington June 29.—(JP)—One day more, and the closing entry of the darkest financial chapter of this, or any other, peace-time nation, will be written—in red. When the clock strikes 12 .tomorrow night the United States will close its fiscal year, wipe its slate clean and embank on a brand new period with additional revenue-producing machinery, together with an auxiliary economic plan, which promises to produce income to keep the treasury in order. The books for the year will be closed with about $2,900.000,000 on the wrong' side of the ledger. Today the deficit was $2,S;;7,644,914 as of June 23; last year it was S002.71G.-000. The year before an SSIS.000,000 surplus was established and tit en ended eleven consecutive years of profitable operations. The fiscal year 193?, should be different however, government officials aver. With the new revenue bill of 19."2 as the spearhead, there is expected to aceure $3.2nl.OOO.OOO in taxes, a sum sufficient, says President Hoover '"impregnably to establish the credit of the federal government." A total of $1.118.500,000 is added to revenue by the new tax provisions which will supplement $ accruing from the 1928 measure. The government's original program of spending amounted to $4.113.000,000 or $.S31,500.000 more than the revenues now believed possible. To bridge this gap $426.000.000 originally allocated to the sinking fund will not be, covered by current receipts, while the remainder will be saved through curtailment of expenditures. The huge deficit was accumulated by a 33 per cent decrease in receipts and an increase of about 20 per cent in expenditures. that such will Sandino Agrees to Peace Conference Tegucigalpa, Honduras. .Tune 20.— >fP i—General Augustino Sandino.

June 20.—(JP)—After five hours of wrangling over the next Democratic campaign document, the Democratic resolutions committee today adopted a prohibition plank committing the party in favor of repeal of the 18th amendment and immediate modification of the Yolstead act. This declaration was put into the Democratic platform by the resolutions committee after the majority report of the subcommittee for a sub-eommi-'sion piank which did not commit the party was rejected 33 to IS. FLOOR FIGHT POSSIBLE The surprised advocates of submission were undecided momentarily whether to carry the cause to the convention floor, but it was predicted they would make a minority report tonight. The prohibition dispute was reached after the committee had waded through extended disputes over the silver and tariff declarations the party would take to the people in the coming election. The committee worked throughout the day while the convention was idling to await its report. The vote on the prohibition plank was adopted 35 to 17. TEXT OF PLANK The text of the prohibition plank follow;-' : "We favor the repeal of the ISth amendment. "To effect such repeal, we demand that the Congress immediately propose a constitutional amendment to purely representative conventions in the states called to act solely on proposal. "We urge the enactment of measures by the several states a actually promote temperance, effectively iirevent the return of the pa-loon and bring the liquor traffic into the open under complete supervision and control by tiie states- "We demand that the federal government effectively exercise its power to enable the states to effectually protect themselves against importation of intoxicating liquors in violation of their laws." "Pending repeal, we favor immediate modification of the Yolstead act to legalize the manufacture and «ale of beer and other beverages of such alcoholic content as is permissible ttn-dpr the constitution and to provide therefrom a proper and needed revenue.''

Ending Long Dispute. Washington, June 29.—OP)—The $150.000,000 economy bill was out of the way and relief slowly being moulded into its final form today as Congress plugged along its legislative path. A 33 to 11 vote in the Senate yesterday ended the dispute ever the measure to cut federal expenses $130,-000.000 next year. This was a reversal of the Senate's previous position, marked a concession to th» House on controverted provisions and left final action up to President Hoover. At the same time, conferees on the $2.300,000.000 Garner-Wagner relief bill attacked the remaining and important differences between House and Senate measures. They had behind them an agreement that $200,-000,000 should be loaned to states by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation on the basis of population and $100.000,000 distributed by President Hoover as he sees fit. This latter provision had the approval of the administration and was included in the measure introduced by Speaker Garner and passed by the House. The Senate, however, had proposed simply that $300,000,000 be loaned to states on the population basis. Additional progress was made hi the drive to get essential appropriations bills on the lawbooks by midnight tomorrow although Senate leaders doubted that all would be there when the new fiscal year begins. Consequently, some of them believed Congress could not adjourn until about next Wednesday, The Senate, having passed the ?L-05(5,000.000 treasury-post office measure. took up the $22.000.000 second deficiency bill, the las» of the money bills it has to pass- BIG DAY FOR SENATOR LONG Kingfish of Louisiana Hits His Stride After Getting Delegation Seated—Takes Rap at Robinson.

He suggested a recess and toe delegates cheered their assent. Tonight the prohibition dispute is to have right of way on the convention floor, with th r 'se who want to commit the party to repeal seeking defeat of the committee report, which is expected to favor submission of a repeal plank, but without recommendation whether the states should accept the repeal amendment or not. The postponement means that most of the nominating speeches for president, at least, will be delayed until tomorrow, and no ballots taken until lare tomorrow afternoon, at :iie earliest.
