IX, No. 7





By James L. West,
Associated Press Staff Writer
HOUSTON, June .29-The spirit of
conciliation which has pervaded the
Democratic national convention from
the first was strong enough to carry
through the party platform Without a
fight over the law enforcement plank
which had been threatened for several
Both the ultra drys and the wets
gave way in the interest of party har-
mony with the result that the con-
vention approved a dry plank pledg-
ing the party and' its nominees to "an
honest effort to enforce the eighteenth
amendment and all other provisions
of the federal constitution and all
laws enacted pursuant thereto."
This plank was a compromise be-
tween that supported at the outset
by the Smith forces and that propos-
ed by such dry leaders as Governor
Dan Moody of Texas, Josephus Dan-
iels, North Carolina publisher, and
other outstanding leaders of the par-
ty in the solid south..

Prof. R. C. Hussey Of Department Of
Geology Will Conduct Second
Excursion Of Session
Registrations are being received for
the student excursion to Niagara Falls
to be conducted on July 6, 7, 8, and 9
under the direction of Prof. R. C. Hus-
sey of the department of Geology.
Those desiring to make the trip are
asked to register in room 3051 Nat-
ural Science building. It is planned
to have the party leave Detroit by
boat Friday evening, July 6, and re-
turn to Ann Arbor early Monday mor-
ning, July 9. The cost of the trip to
each member of the party will be
In the excursion is included a trip
by trolley along the river gorge, a
boat ride on "The Maid of the Mist,"
and a ride over the giant whirlpool
in a small car suspended from a
The Niagara Falls excursion is one
of several trips to outside points of
interest arranged especially for stu-
dents in the Summer Session.
Professor Hussey, director of the
excursion, has arranged to make the
trip with the party. During the course
of the excursion Professor Hussey
will divulge information regarding the
history and present characteristics of
the Falls.
In view of the limitation placed on
the number of those who can be ac-
commodated on the excursion it is
suggested that those desiring to make
the trip register immediately.
"If crops are good the West will
probably go Republican as usual,"
stated Professor H. B. Calderwood of
the Political Science department of
the University in an informal inter-
view granted yesterday. Professor
Calderwood made it cleaK that any
survey of the present political situa-
tion could not but be speculative in-
asmuch as the election is so far dis-
tant and the forces at work so large
and varied. "Of course, with poor
crops a strong reactionary feeling will
likely prevail, and the Democrats will
have much more power in the farm-
ing districts," he added.
He did not consider the farm re-
lief problem to be of such great im-
portance as it is thought by some.
"The farmer will probably vote along
his regular party lines," he said, "with
some taking into account of Prohibi-
tion and the religious question." This
latter will have great influence on
the ordinary voter, Prof. Calderwood
believed, although the feeling will not
be expressed openly. "Both parties
offer a paradox in the relation of their
candidates and their platforms," he
declared. "Smith, an avowed Wet, has
been placed on a platform of Dry
