.July 3. Even by surpassing the
party record for continuous bal

At the close jot the 61st ballot
' the convention ; adjourned after
midnight until t p. m., July 4th,
with the deadlock tighter, than
"-ever, and the ' grip of both prin
cipal contenders unshaken, i
The McAdoo management plac-
ed the blame on the favorite sons,
who they said,' by remaining in
the balloting when they should
have withdrawn, had prevented
the real strength of both gover
nor Smith and "Mr. McAdoo to be
shown. . . i f.
At the adjournment, after a see
sawing process that had swung a
1 handful of stateB back and forth
among the leaders, the situation
appeared to be almost precisely
' where It haf been 24 'hours be
fore. McAdoo remained fn the
lead, with Smith holding second
place, and all others trailing be

So serious was the tangle ' and
so determined the plan of cam
paign that was being laid down
by the strongest of the contend
ers elements - of 'the convention,
that the party chief consulted pos
sible . methods of amending house
" rules. : i ; '
A plan proposed was that both
McAdoo and Smith be called upon
to withdraw,-- permitting their
strength to go to some candidate.
This proposal . was pronounced

Highest Number in Party
History Was 57 to Nomi
, nate Douglas in 18 60
New York, July 3.- When the
Democratic national convention
reached the fifty ninth ballot
tonight it tied the record of the
party history, and as no nomin
ation was reached, the convention
then began setting a new record.
The greatest number of ballots
heretofore cast I in a convention
was that of 1860 which nomin
ated t DougIa3.! 4 The convention
began at Charleston. S.- C., where
57 ballots were taken, it." then
adjourned s and j reconvened sin
Baltimore where two more ballots
were taken 59 in all and Doug
las was nominated. ,
' The next approach to the old
record was in the Baltimore con
vention of 1912 which took 46
ballots to nominate Wood row
Wilson and coming after: that was
the San Francisco convention of
1920, which took 44 ballots to
nominate James M. Cox.
Hitchcock Drafts Resolution
in Desperate Effort to
. Break Deadlock
New , York, July 3. Tired And dis
couraged, but not knowing whith
er 1 to turn, the aemocratic con
vention battled blindly, along to
night in another futile effort to
find a nominee for the presidency.
As the number of -ballots went
on well past the half hundred
mark, the long roll of the states
was repeated over and over In
weary monotony, ; and ; over and
over the same replies were shout
ed back to the! bedraggled tally
clerks until they knew - them all
by heart. f v
Party chiefs j confessed them
selves completely bewildered by
the situation and although they de
sired many plans to get the con
vention out of Its troubles, they
were able to agree . on hone. .
As the see-saw of the balloting
went on without -decisive result,
agitation for a change in the rules
to end the deadlock reached a
point 'where Senator' ; Hitchcock
drafted a resolution calling for the
elimination on each, ballot of the
low man.. The senator said he
would introduce it tomorrow un
less tonight's session brought
gome indication of a break.
The resolution saysf
"Resolved, that it Is the sense
of the convention that beginning
with the (blank) ballot the candi
date receiving lowest ballot should
signify' to his supporters his with
drawal as a candidate until only
3 candidates remain before the
convention." j
