interest today in the "ballyhoo"

While observers discussed the

$2,500,000. with the total atten
dance closer to ISO, 000 than the
actual capacity of slightly more
than 170,000. These figures, how

Governor Alfred E. Smith of New York, had been benefitted
temporarily bv Mr. McAdoo's move. Mr. Meredith added
that the advantage shortly would
appear if the dry democrats con
centrate on a new leader prompt
ly. Mr. Meredith was one of Mc
Adoo's lieutenants at the 1924 na

.Among those who would be ac-

suggested Newton D. Baker, form

Thomas J. Walsh of Montana; Re

t Selection of Walsh, he pointed
out, would be loosea upon as prooi
that religion is not and. has not

The mechanism for selecting a
successor to McAdoo for dry pro

progressives thus assembled. He
will not issue such a call nimseu.
