the paramount issue of the 1932
presidential campaign was express-

man of the Democratic national
executive committee.
Addressing the legislature in a
state which left the Democratic
fold to vote for Herbert Hoover in
1928, Shouse defended the prohibi-

and said his party, when it regains
power, will "do the obvious things
for the relief of unemployment in-
stea d of merely talking about
He pledged the 'support of hith-
self and of Raskob to the presidens-
tial candidate selected by the Dem-
ocratic convention "whether he is
wet or dry."

said, "if the selection of our chief'
magistrates and the directors of
legislation who must guide the des-
tinies of the United States should
hinge forever on the question of
prohibition however grave and far-
reaching that question may be."
Shouse said he did not see how
any Democrat could find fault withl

kob which calls for retention of the1
Eighteenth Amendment with an
additional amendment under which
any state might . determine by pop-
ular vote whether it, desires prohi-
