Merry, Merry Farmers. "Hoover There." The President Rests. ----By Arthur Brisbane----- Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst, who died yesterday, will be remembered with gratitude and honor. Possessing courage, determination and self-sacrifice of which few men would be capable, Mrs. Pankhurst led and won the battle for woman suffrage. In her magnificent campaign she faced the contempt of dull men and stupid women. Some day the women of the world will prprt to her mem- ory the monument that she deserves. HOOVER AND CURTIS, G. 0. P. LINE-UP Cal Endorses Hoover The farmers' demonstration in Kansas City lent an artistic touch to the convention. It was suggested that Mr. Florenz Ziegfeld, of the Follies, had been engaged to pre- pare the costumes, just as he would do for a rural scene in his New York theater. WIRES SECRETARY SUPERIOR; WELCOME Seeks Vice Presidency TOWN GAILY BEDECKED FOR ARRIVAL OF PRESIDENT AND MRS. COOLIDGE; GO TO BRULE BY TRAIN. The farmers brought hay forks and hoes on their shoulders, and while they didn't sing "We Are Merry, Merry or stamp their hoe handles on the ground in unison, they presented a pretty pic- ture. What disappointed "friend of the farmer" financed that exhibition? Americans in Paris sing George M. Cohan's war song, changed to "Hoover There." Hoover was over there when he was NEEDED there. He was at work in the Mississippi valley when he was needed there, backed by President Coolidge's confidence, in the time of flood. If he is elected president of the United States the people will find him just where he is NEEDED. President Coolidge, leaving poli- tics to the politician, is off to Wis- consin's fishing grounds. A while ago, at the White House, showing to this writer improvements that had been made for his successor, Presi- dent Coolidge said, "It is no kind- ness to wish me four years more of this and he meant it. Superior, Wis., June President Coolidge endorsed th nomination of Herbert Hoover a the Republican presidential candi date by sending to the commerc secretary in Washington a tele gram of congratulations and per sonal appreciation immediately upon reaching Superior today. He praised the personal qualities of the secretary. President Coolidge was informed eaily today on the train by Ed- ward T. Clark, his personal secre- tary, of the nomination of Heibert Hoover at the Kansas City conven- tion. The news reached the special train caiiying Mr. Coolidge to his summer White House on the Brule river after the chief executive had ictircd. First Lady All Smiles Mi.s. Coolidge smiling happily and apparently none the worse for the long trip from the east, was Dhotographecl from the rear of the train. She was wearing a chane] red suit with a tan silk hat. The country is grateful for the work he has done. And, while there was never any question of a third .term, since Mr. Coolidge has been elected president only once, the peo- ple admire his unwillingness to raise the slightest thud term ques- ti6n. Jack Dempsey discovers that real estate provides the softest road to wealth. He sold a hotel in Los An- geles for making a profit of with great ease, and did- n't have to hit anybody "on the point of the jaw" or let anybody hit him to make the money. Real estate works swiftly, surely. You buy propeity, crowds move in your direction, mothers produce more babies, which puts up rents, and without a struggle you arc worth thousands or millions moie. Ask the Astors, Goelets, Gerrys. Or ask single taxers and see them rage. Mrs. Irvine L. Lenroot presented her with a large bouquet of roses and was photographed with Mr. and Mrs. Coolidge, together with Mayor Fred Baxter of Supeiior and Mayor S. F. Snively of Du- luth. A welcoming committee stretching half a block from the train, greeted the president as he alighted while the Superior public school band in white stood in the background providing music. Preparations were made to take Mrs. Coolidge on the train to Win- neboujou, four miles north of dar Island Lodge on the historic and pictuiesque Brule. Her Vacation Spirit A sphit seemed to take hold of Picsident Coolidge as ho was driven in an open car through Senator Charles Curtis, of Kansas, will uphold the Republican partv with Secretary Hoover in the next presidential election. He was nom- inated today on the first ballot for vice president at Kansas City. __ 1 CONVENTION IN JOYOUS ROAR AS HOOVER NAMED ALLIANCE AGAINST SECRE- TARY COLLAPSES AS HE IS NOMINATED ON 1ST BALLOT WITH ALMOST UNANIMOUS VOTE BY BYRON PRICE, Associated Press Staff Writer Kansas City, June The overwhelming choice of his party convention, Herbert Hoover is the Republican presidential nominee of 1928. His nomination was voted late Thursday night on the first ballot in a landslide that piled up at his feet nearly four-fifths of the entire vote of the convention. The alliance of candidates against him collapsed and scattered and his chief opponent, Frank 0. Lowden, withdrew entirely, disappointed and dissatisfied with the party platform plank on farm relief. Turn to Hoover Lowden's elimination was follow ed by the accession of many of his dele- gates to the Hoover standard, al- though 74 of the 250 or so that had been credited to him stuck to the captainless ship and voted for Low- den despite his withdrawal. Out of the total of 1084 votes cast, Hoover had in the end S37 with only 542 needed to be nominated. Most of the lest were scattered among Curtis, Presidential Candidate Watson and Noriis with none of ASSIST While Republicans at Kansas City put "rigid prohibition enforcement" into their platform, they are putting all sorts of rigid liquids into their interiors. J. E. House, wiiting in confidence to Cyras II. K. Curtis, re- ports that "Old Man River himself is no wetter than Kansas City." The principal ingredients of that great boom town at present being Scotch, rye, bourbon, gin and fancy drinks, if you are effeminate enough to want them. the gayly decorated and crowd- lined streets of the city. He re- sponded promptly to the cheers and handclappincr along the route, lift- ing his sailor straw hat time and again, and smiling at the office workers hanging from the windows in the business district. The President and Mrs. Coolidge were on the observation platform of their car as the nine car tram pulled into the flag-bedecked city which for weeks has been in fever- ish preparation for their visit. It wag the first time Mrs. Coolidge had appeared since leaving Wash- ington and the second time the president had seen outside his car Following the orders of Major Cou- pal she remained quiet, resting in bed most of the time. Since Nelly Ely finished her trip around the world, and Dorothy Dix turned from straight reporting to deep philosophy, no lady writer has appeared as brilliant as Katherine Dayton. Her description of great men gatheied in Kansas City from the wide open and tight shut places isn't complimentary: "They were not so much the kind of men that a girl forgets, as the kind she just would- n't notice." Progressives Lose Place on Committee Convention Hall, Kansas City, June Follette Re- publicnns front Wisconsin, tem- porarily at least, lost their fight to be represented on the Repub- lican national committee, the convention today declining to take a hand in their dispute with the so-called regular faction. BELIEVE PARTY IN BALLOON BEING BLOWN T W A R p SEARCHERS; STRANDED MEN MAY SKOOT BEARS FOR FOOD. Kings Bay, Spitzbergen, June 15. strong east wind blow- ing in Spitzbcrgcn today made it probable that the A'obilc radio pai ty was being driven more to the west- ward in the direction of the icscue parties now seeking to reach the stranded men off Northeast Land. Snow and Sunshine It snowed durincc the night, but sunshine succeeded the storm today making conditions favorable for further reconnaisance. While there has been much ap- prehension concerning the fate of the seven men earned off in the Italia's balloon and who have since been missing, it was felt at Bay that this paity must have the skiis which were in the Italia's Union Terms Fire Hook-up as Insulting them having enough to match Low- den's 74. Despite further personal woid from President Coolidge that he did not want his name befoie the con- vention, he was nominated formally by Representative Ralph Cole of Ohio and 17 votes were cast for him from Illinois and four from Ohio. The nomination was voted by a convention which had undergone a great change since its drab and un- interesting opening last Tuesday. The Hoover people came to the night session manifestly determined to make a jubilee of it while the rem- nanls of the opposing coalition, real- ising the battle was all over, weie plainly disposed to keep a stiff up- Herbert C.

LITTLE JOE Egad! Fearing Power of Farmers, Major Hoople Joins Their March WT running mate. East and west and south joined in a tumultuous rivalry to give the tribute and confidence of their sup- port to the swarthy Kansan, of Indian descent, once a jockey, now the leader of his party in the United States senate. His selection was urged by his nuddlewest partisans and accepted by the delegates of oth- er sections as a link between the presidential nominee and the Mc- Nary-Haugen farm bloc which was so overwhelmingly beaten yesterday in an attempt to vrite the equaliza- tion fee into the Republican plat- form. Voted for Farm Relief Senator Curtis voted for both of the McNary-Haugen bills which were vetoed by President Coolidge. When the attempt was made three weeks ago to pass the 1928 bill over the veto, however, the Kansas sena- tor stood by the president. He himself had been a candidate for the presidency, with the support of Kansas and Oklahoma to the last. Although his vice presidential can- didacy had been handicapped by the record of his stubborn resistance against Hoover, his suppoiters pointed out that lie not only an- nounced his allegiance to the stand- ard bearer and platform as soon as the selection was made, but sent a ringing tolcgiam of congratulation to Mr. Hoover. Nominated on First Ballot Like Hoover, Curtis was nominat- ed on the first ballot, and there were only a few scattered votes for oth- ers. During the final period of con- vention oratory set aside for nomi- nating and seconding speeches other names wcie submitted, but before "he roll call began, every one of had been withdrawn. Washington, June Hoover telegraphed to Sena- or Cuitis of Kansas his congratuLi- .10-T upon the latter's nomination 'or vice president on the Republican icket before the roll call was com- ilctcd today at the Kansas City con- dition.
