Cnstitutional Issues May
Be Paramount After His
Challenge To Roosevelt
WASHINGTON, Aug. 12. - (') -
Herbert Hoover's challenge to Presi-
dent Roosevelt to inform the people
"openly" and "precisely" just how he
wants the Constitution changed was
regarded today as a major step in a
Republican drive for a knock-down-
and-drag out fight on constitutional
issues in 1936.
Stopping in Chicago on a trip east,
the former President hit at the New
Deal last night in a statement accus-
ing the administration of "dictator-
ial" demands, of trampling on "pri-
mary liberties of the people" and of
invading state's rights.
Directly or indirectly, he said, the
administration seeks to revise the
Constitution to concentrate powers in
- Calling on the administration to
declare his intentions before Con-
gress adjourns andAo make it an
open fight on a specifically worded
amendment, he said:
"No matter how destructive an
amendment might be and even though
the people were persuaded to ill-ad-
vised action upon it, yet it would be
better for liberty to commit suicide
in the open rather than to be poisoned
by indirection in the capital of the
"No more momentous decision has
been raised since the Civil War. Com-
mon frankness requires that the Ad-
ministration come forward to the
people and declare precisely wherein,
under our Constitution, we can not
correct the evils and can not prevent
While some Republicans and Demo-
crats interpreted the statement as a
bid by Mr. Hoover for the presiden-
tial nomination next year, others de-
nied this was necessarily the correct
way to construe it.
Meantime, there was no indication
that President Roosevelt, who re-
turned last night from a fishing trip
on the yacht Sequoia, would make
any statement. From Representative
Vinson (Dem., Ky.) came the com-
ment: "No Constitutional amend-
ment has been submitted and no-
body has said that one will be."
Declaring he had no doubt that
Mr. Hoover would run in 1936, Gib-
son (Rep., Vt.) called the statement
a "prelill4rtary .outline of his plat-
form." To Representative Dies
(Dem., Tex.) it was the former presi-
dent's "opening bid" while Senator
Nye (Rep., N. D.) thought it signified
a 'desire to be the candidate.''
One who took a different viewpoint
was Senator Steiwer (Rep., Ore.). He
