A state ticket, headed by Nathan

was recommended to the enrolled re

The convention, 988 to 97, decided
to support Senator James W. Wads-

Hooker of New York, former national
treasurer of the progressive party, op
posed Senator Wadsworth. Secretary
of State F. M. Hugo, his most for

Denouncing the democratic admin

as marked by "quackery, opportunism
and lack of vision," Chairman Will

colleagues to emulate the example of

Request for Purchase of Uniforms
Held Up Pending Settling ot
WASHINGTON, D. C, July 28. The
American government was confronted
Tuesday with a new problem grow
ing out of tne European situation
through receipt of a request from the
Polish legation that Poland be per
mitted to purchase 200.000 army uni
forms and shoes from the war de
partment. Because the question of neutrality
was involved, it was understood that
the state department hesitated to
grant the request.
The United States has aot received
from Great, Britain an invitation to
participate in the proposed confer
ence at London to settle Polish-Russian
armistice terms and neither
Great Britain nor France, which vol
unteered to aid Poland in holding
back the soviet forces, has invited
the co-operation of this country, al
though unofficial information from
London and Paris has indicated sup
port in both cases.
As indicating that the United States
had maintained a neutral attitude be
tween Poland and soviet Russia since
hostilities opened. Secretary Baker
today made public the record of sales
by the war department to Poland
with the explanation that nothing
had been sold since hostilities began.
When restrictiors on trade with
Russia were removed the state de
partment announced no materials
susceptible of immediate use for war
purposes could be sent into Russia.
Prior to the war between Poland
and Russia, howev- the war depart
ment sold approximately $72,000,000
worth of materials to the Polish re
public, taking In payment notes ex
tending from three to six years and
bearing interest at 5 per cent. In ad
