The incoming chairman his voice multiplied Many times by the amp Fang device installed at the front of the platform filled the Hall. The resolutions committee was called to meet at to a. Rn., to receive the drafting committee s report but it was not certain that the tentative draft would be ready at Attiat hour. Since it had been decided to Confer with president Coolidge by Telephone again today on the world court Plank and perhaps several others. Sidestep prohibition prohibition it is understood is not specifically mentioned although Law enforcement forms the Basin of one Plank. The Only Plank which might he interpreted As referring to the Kun flux klan is described a a declaration re affirming the party a Devotion to the Constitution and its guarantees of religious civil and political liberties. The Oil inquiries Are dealt with under the head of a a orderly government a and men of a both a re assailed for dishonesty and corruption. The existence of which the party condemns and deplores. On agriculture which was one of the most troublesome questions in the sub committee sessions it was agreed to pledge an Effort to restore an equitable balance Between agriculture prices and Industrial commodity Levels. There is no reference to the menary Haugen Bill sponsored in the recent session of Congress by Secretary Wallace and the insurgent group. The Plank also expresses Strong approval of the flexible Tariff provisions of the present Law and another embodies a plea for party regularity in Congress and the state Legislatures. Avoid Jap controversy the immigration policy defined in the new quota Law is strongly recommended but no mention is made of japanese exclusion. One Plank is devoted to Praise of president Coolidge and in another further tax reduction is demanded and a tax revision commission to formulate a scientific policy. No suggestion is made of rates of further reduction or How they should be brought about. A decoration of Philip Pink Independence sets Forth that to relinquish american control of the islands would be against the welfare of both the territory and the nation. No mention was made of the soldiers Bonus. Charles b. Warren of Detroit chairman of the resolutions commits said after the drafting committee meeting had adjourned that there would be no minority report to the whole committee. The draft he said was approved by the entire sub committee. Or. Warren said the full committee would be requested to act on the platform Early enough today to permit submission to the convention before adjournment of today a session. A orderly the a orderly government Plank which takes up about 300 words makes no specific reference to the Oil or recent congressional investigations. This Plank apparently had been practically agreed upon before the sub committee went into session for no loud discussion followed its presentation. Such was not the Case however when the klan and agricultural planks were reached. Shouts and argument which could be heard plainly in the Hall outside the committee room ensued. Norbeck has inning. Senator Norbeck of South Dakota did not mince words in discussing the condition of the Farmers and the possible effects it might have on the Republican party if a Strong agricultural Plank were not written. Although not a member of the sub committee he was called in and came armed with charts and figures. He told the platform drafters plainly that the party was being blamed for the High Cost of living and the Low Cost of farm products. Since the Northwest was not to be represented on the ticket he is understood to Janave argued it should be expressed in the platform controversy about the klan Plank resolved itself into a discussion of whether anything should be said. Representative Mills of new York urged adoption of the Plank re affirming the constitutional guarantees of liberties. Which finally was incorporated but others opposed it. A vigorous denouncement of the klan was voted Down. Senator Gooding of Idaho spoke for More than two hours before the sub committee when the agricultural Plank was under consideration. Urging a definite program not unlike that outlined in the Mcnary Haugen Bill. The declaration tentatively accepted was understood by members of the sub committee to have been viewed by senator Gooding As unsatisfactory to at least two senators from Northwestern states. Senator Norbeck however. Is understood to have approved the utterance agreed upon. Other declarations other declarations contained in the platform include the administration has reduced taxation and the Public debt installed a budget system and brought Ordinary expenses Down to a pre War level in three years presenting a a record unsurpassed in the history of Public progressive tax reduction should be accomplished through Mux Reform and not be confined to the 4,000.000 i n persons who pay direct taxes but should be enjoyed by the entire population. President Coolidge. Proposal for a conference of National Federal and state officials to develop ways to lighten taxes should be carried out. A non partisan Federal tax commission to study All tax systems should be appointed. The party believes in the protective Tariff. It should be adjusted however. As provided in the 1922 Tariff Law a3 new conditions arise. The party favors construction of the a most feasible Waterways from the great i it Akes to the Gulf As Well As the improvement of Inland Waterways. And a Survey of conditions under which the flood Waters of the Colo Rado River May be controlled. High tribute is paid to the memory of the late president Harding in the opening Plank. He is referred to As a Man whose a human qualities gripped the affections of the american people he also is praised for calling the Washington arms conference. In praising president Colidge the draft sets Forth that As vice president he has justified the Faith and Confidence which inspired his the farm Plank declares the administration already has taken Steps which eventually will Lead to Relief. To mentions specifically the organization at the suggestion of president Coolidge some months ago of a corporation making available $100,000,-000 to assist the Farmers in the Northwest.
