RASKOB HOME RULE
BY SOUTHERN ORYS
Protest, Praise, Discord Follow
Chairman's Liquor Poll of
BYRD SCORES PROPOSAL
Hull Protests Effort to Make
Issue in Party.
WASHINGTON, April 7. -(P)-
Protest, praise and discord today
followed Chairman Raskob's prohl-
bition poll of Democratic national'
What would happen was prob-
lematical. A number of southern
dry leaders, however, redoubled ef-
forts to forestall convention ap-
proval of the national committee
chairman's home rule plan. Others
saw his proposition as a solution
to prohibition questions, while at
least one committee man urged the

Hull Scores Poll.
Senator Hull of Tennessee who
once held the position Raskob now

national committee should not es-

Chairman Raskob had attempted
to anticipate this objection in his
letter to committee men. He said
the last national convention in
structed the group he heads to
make "recommendations of policies
or procedure for the consideration
of the convention." His proposals,
and the poll, he said, were in line
with that direction.
But Mrs. Charles J. Sharp, na-I
tional committee woman for Ala-
bama, asserted: "I can say that I
truly grieve that Mr. Raskob has
persisted in urging a commitment
by an unauthorized committee."
Senator Robinson o Arkansas,
senate leader who vigorously pro-
tested the home rule proposal when
it was advanced at the Democratic
national committee meeting here
in March, declined to comment. His
friends here said they had no rea-
son to believe he had changed his
