Convention Adjourns after
Two Fourth of July Ses
sions. Without Reaching
Any Agreement
Californian Needs 202 to
Nominate; Compromise:
Only Sofutiort
: New York, July 4. In a renewed
; drive late tonight to reach" a ma
jority In the democratic national
convention William G. McAdoo ran
; his total to 530 votes, just 20 be
low the halfway mark and 202
i below the necessary number for a
; nomination. " ; ' --'.
The total of the 69th ballot was
24 greater than had ever been
cast for: him before: the previous
high mark, having been 505 on
the 40th ballot. Encouraged by
this showing, the field forces of,
;the former treasury secretary were
-busy seeking .to add to their
forces. L
Announcement of the 530 votes
for the Californian was . greeted
; with cheers from his followers and
fwaa made the occasion for anoth
k er ' demonstration . and march
-'- around the convention hall. Chair
man Walsh finally halted It by the
Tlrorons use of his gavel.;'.'.
When the tally clerk announced
that Governor Smith had received
335 on this ballot 3 below his
maximum the signal was given
a flmith demonstration.' Itt

continued cheers and roars.
Kew York, July 4. Two fourth
of July sessions of the aemocrax
' ic convention failed to produce a
nominee for the presidency and
tonight, at the end of 70 ballots,
the party leaders began seriously
" to consider the administration of
heroic measures to brealc the dead
Mock." : 1: . --Durlnir.
the day two favorite
sons had been eliminated, McAdoo
had reached a new high record
within 20 votes of a majority of
the convention; Smith had again
touched his high water mark, and
the series of maneuvers oh the
convention floor had re-klndled
the animosities of the warring
, groups and apparently made a
compromise more difficult.
The floor j skirmishing was
started by the Smith forces who
first proposed in a. formal reso
i. lu'tion that all that the candidates
be Invited to address the delegates
; Jn ' executive session .before there
was a further ballot. The pro
posal failed of the. twothlrds re
quired for adoption, with the Mc-
Adoo forces Toting against It, and
later a' proposal to invite Governor
Smith alone to speak from the con
vention platform was similarly re-
'. Jected. " ; !
The leaders' of the groups
which are outside both the Mc-
Adoo and Smith camp believed
' they might succeed tomorrow in
convincing the managers for
both I candidates that, further bat
lottn would be futile, under the
present lineup and that the nly
hope of a decision was an agree
ment upon a compromise' noml-
; nee. i r 1 : : - ! ' . .
Efforts were being made after
tonight's adjournment to bring
some of the principal supporters
of the two leading contenders to
gether In a conference with a def
inite ' plan for compromsie, under
. consideration. Various comprom
ise candidates were to be put for
, ward in-the conference should it
first be found possible to convince
the conferees that neither Mc
Adoo nor Smith can be nomlnat
ed. I r ' : '. - -' 1
A second and entirely different
plan to break the deadlock, and

Before N. E. A.
WASHINGTOX, July 4. Nearly
15,000 American teachers and ed
ucators stood and cheered1 here

has his endorsement, the president-
said, "bearing In mind that this
does not mean any interference
with the local control and dignity.
but is rather an attempt to re
cognize : the importance of edu
catlonal effort."
Terming ignorance "the most
fruitful source of poverty, vice and
crime," .the president pointed out
to the teachers that there are in
this country three million native
born illiterates, as well as 14,000,-
000 foreign born illiterate white
persons, who must be given an op
portunity to read and write the
English language, "that they may
come into more direct contact
with the ideal! and standards of
our political and social life." i
, He asserted that "our institu
tions are constantly and very
properly the.strb ject of critical in
quiry unless their Origin is un
derstood, unless their value be
properly assessed, the citlien falls
ready prey to those selfish agita
tors who would exploit his pre

1 I From the Race i
New York, July 4 Groping i for
some way to end the deadlock, the
democratic national contention .re
assembled ; for its night session
with a .variety of remedies In
prospect for consideration.
Resolutions proposing to break
the unit rule, to abolish the two-
thirds rule and to drop off the
low man on each ballot, were In
the pockets of leaders, waitine
to be: sprung if they could be
agreed i upon : by ; a . few sponsors,1

mere : was a faint hope that the

itely between Smith and McAdoo,
so that those two could fight It
out, i ; .: :: - f
As the delegates assembled .for
the night session the. band ap
propriately played "It May Be for
Years and It May Be Forever."
The session came to order near

by the Rev. Paul F. Landis, min
ister of the John Hall Memorial
of New York
The ; first (business o t. the . ses
sion was the calling of the roll
of' states for the 67th ballot.
Chairman "Walsh then had read
a communication from w. u. mc
Adoo. It was read by unanimous
consent. ' ''.''
'The convention ' today voted
quite properly against a' proposal
to Invite all candidates to address
It," the letter said. "Subsequent
ly, a proposal to invite the gov
ernor of New York to address it;
was; rejected by a vote of the con
vention." i
Mr. McAdoo wrote he was sure
the action was taken because of
the j disposition to conclude the
business. But he concluded with
a suggestion to his friends in the
convention that they invite Gov
ernor Smith to make an address.
Gavin McNab then, on behalf
of the California delegation, asked
thati the vote by which the con
vention refused to Invite Gover
nor Smith be reconsidered. He
proposed a unanimous consent
that !i Governor Smith be invited
to speak at 10 o'clock. ;t

The plan of organized union has

With ratification by the annnal
conferences, the college of bishops
of each church would meet Joint
ly and notify their respective gen
eral conferences that the : union
haa been effected. The eeneral
conferences then will be called to
meet in joint session to put unifi
cation into effect. The southern
general conference meetsi in regu

place as yet undetermined. Since
the northern conference doee not

Wisconsin Senator Sends
Message to Progressives
Indicating Intention to
: Run for President
Convention to Fight Over
Question of Another Com
. ' lete Organization
, CLEVELAND, Ohio. July 4.-
Senator Robert' M. LaFoIlette of
Wisconsin' formally announced to
day that he would be an independ
ent, candidate for. president..
He disclosed thi Intention and:
opposition to Immediate formation
of a new party in a message to
the conference for Pittsburgh po
litical action, in session here.
Immediately after the senator'
statement had been read to the
convention by his son, Robert M.
LaFoIlette, Jr., a motion was of
fered by.' Herman . Wills, a - vice
president of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers, to endorse
the ' candldaey.A With delegates
yelling ;"letVgo.?'. opposition to
this procedure y developed from
socialist sources.
Morris HillqulC New - York,
begged the convention, not to act '
until It had fully organized. Amid
confusion," Judge Jacob Panken of
the New York - municipal court,
made a point of order that until
the ' convention was organised it
could not act. .This was upheld
by Wm. Johnston, chairman " of
the gathering, and the attempt to
rush through the LaFoIlette en- .
dorsemenwas dropped
Friends "pt LaFoIlette were con
vinced by the demonstrations tlat '
accompanied mention, of his same
through the day, that approval of
his candidacy would be given to
morrow before adjournment. ,
L Challengers of today's attempt
ed procedure let It be known that
their object wa not to keep th
convention from endorsing La
FoIlette, j but to give opportunity
for them to present their conten
tion that the time is ripe for for
mation of a new party. This que
tion will be threshed out on the '
floor tomorrow. !
While it was known that LaFoI
lette had a communication to tha
convention, in response .to the
conference's national fcommlttee
requeet tor a, statement as to his
plans and views, its petition today
came as a surprise. For hours
the delegates had listened to ora-
tory by the chairman and some
invited guests and delegates.
Committees had been appointed
and the gatheYing was. marking
time while they were trying to get
going. The credentials commit
tee', which had been at Its . task
for more than two days, finally
came in and offered a partial re
port. , - ..: 7' . r'
The delegates were getting
ready; for an early adjournment
until tomorrow. Suddenly Chair
man Johnston Interrupted the
reading of the names of 'accredited
delegates. -
Senator LaFoIlette ba sent a
message to, the convention," he
announced, explaining it would be
read by the senator's son, whom
he introduced as "a chip off the
old block." n a ringing voice
and - with pugnacious gestures
which emphasized the chief points
of his father's statement, young
LaFoIlette soon had the delegates
standing and cheering. A demon
stration in which there was some
parading along the ateles. was
precipitated by the following pro
mise of Senator LaFoIlette:
"I am ready to enlist with yon y
to wage unceasing warfare until
the American people . have been
restored to the full enjoyment of .
their political and economic
rights." , ?
.The message .was a lengthy ex
position of the senator' views on
domestic and international politi
cal issues. After a bitter-arraignment
of both the old parties,
which he declared could not be
