KANSAS CITY. June 13. (AP)
Extreme gratification over the
adoption of the platform sub-corn
mittee of the plank declaring un
equivocally for enforcement of the
18th amendment, was expressed
tonight by William F. Woodward.
Portland, who made a race as del
egate to the republican national
convention on the promise that he
would strive for such a plank.
Woodward said Senator Borah's
jlank which the sub-committee ap
proved was entirely acceptable to
aim, and embodied entirely the
idea he advocated as to what the
party commitment should be.
Woodward's proposal was given
the support of the entire Oregon
delegation, which, at a breakfast
conference Monday at which Ralph
El Williams, Oregon republican na
tional committee man. was host,
endorsed a resolution declaring for
such a platform plank, in view of
Oregon's widely known attitude to
ward prohibition. .
