Comment on Campaign Until Idaho Return PLATFORM TEXT PAGE 8 WASHINGTON C3 Senator Borah of Idaho refused Friday to say whether he would vote for Gov ernor Landon for president Back in Washington after being defeated by the Kansan for the re publican presidential nomination he told reporters he was not clear as to the meaning of the message Landon sent to the Cleveland con vention before he was nominated Thursday night Republican leaders had been waiting anxiously for word as to Borahs attitude toward the gold plank which Landon added to the convention platform The Idahoan previously had opposed vigorously a return to a gold monetary stand ard Refuses to Comment I do not care to comment on Governor Landons message to the Borah said at a press conference I am not clear as to what it means If it means he is for the gold standard of course I am wholly in disagreement with that but he saya he is not in favor as I understand it of returning to the gold stand ard unless it can be done without penalizing our democratic economy and without injury to our producers of agricultural But it cannot be done without doing both There can be no greater threat to the producers of this coun tiy than a pledge to return to the gold standard We had the gold standard the world had the gold standard and it was one of the great causes of the demoralization of agriculture as well as the genera economic breakdown Isnt Any Doubt There ought not be any doubl about that matter and there isnt any doubt about it as far as I am He said that he had no statemenl to make and will not have until return to Idaho with reference to the I have not had time to study the platform as a he continued but with reference to the planks to which I gavei most consideration I am quite in harmony

ALFRED M LANDON FRANK H KNOX Had Square Borah declared he felt no tion to Col Frank Knox the repub lican nominee for vice president Asked whether he thought he had received a square deal in nego tiations with Landon leaders he said I am willing to say it was a square He added he had received no per sonal assurances from the Landon group as to its utand on currency The Lion of Idaho appeared tired but said he felt somewhat re freshed by a morning in the park after his arrival in the capital early Friday On the other hand Landons gold stand drew quick praise from form er President Hoover Frank Knox who had competed with Landon for the nomination and others Two Personal Flanks The other two personal planks added by Landon to the party plat form in his unexpected telegram some republicans concern but drew cheers from others The pos sible political effects were not so clearly visible These other Landon planks were pledges to support a constitutional amendment if necessary to permit minimum wage legislation by states and to place within the merit sys em every job in the administrative lervice below the little cabinet All three of these Landon planks had been turned down by the reso utions committee or its subcommit ee several times in an effort to write a platform that would unite all party factions Gold Ixrft Out Gold was left out of the mone ary plank chiefly because of Borahs opposition The constitu amendment plank was omit ed partly because some felt it vould weaken the first and leading lank in the for VANDENBERGTO SUPPORT TICKET Michigan Senator Declare
