Recalling the president's
statement: "Platform promises
must not he empty gestures,'
the compilation said a reduction
for 1130 at Mr. Hoover'i recom-
mendatioa was evidence that the
party pledge to reduce the "tax
burden'' wherever possible was
being carried out.
Almost every plank in the
platform was dealt with in aim
ilar fashion. The statement
said the promise of a necessary
revision ot the tariff had been
fulfilled nnd that the new act
had given substantial aid to g
riculturs. Emphasis was placed
on the prevision enabling the
chief executive to Increase or de
crease duties SO per cent where
necessary nnd on ths reorganiza
tion ot the tariff commission.
