    Adieu Claims Vote Drive Gaining
Gov. Gary to dominate Harriman
y JAMES DEVLIN
- CHICAGO Ml AvtrtU Harri
man Tuesday announced . that
Gov. Raymond Gary cf Oklahoma
would makt the spch nominat
inf htm for the presidency at the
Democratic national Convention.
He noted that Gary had been
the first governor to come out for j
him for President. That was last
December.
In making the announcement,
the New York governor scoffed at
opposition reports his campaign
was dragging. He contended that
on the contrary it was picking up
steam.
Harriman also discounted new
appeal by ex-candidate Kstes Ke
fauver to his follower urging
them to support Adjai Stevenson,
(he front runner.
"When the smoke has cleared
away. I think you will find most
of the Kefauver delegates turning
to me," Harriman said.
. He said that "by and large'Vthe
Kefauver delegates supported the
Tennessee Senator because they
favored libral principles ''they
. thought he was for." Harriman
said he himself was getting their
' support because he favored such
principles.
Te question whether his cam
paign was losing momentum, Har
riman said "no," that he was get
ting "more and more" pledges of
support.
He said former President Tru
man's endorsement of him as a
fighting, well qualified candidate
in the liberal tradition made a
number of delegates "stop and
think "
Harriman predicted many of
them, after discharging pledges to
other candidates on the first or
second ballot, will vote for him.

Showdown on
Gvil Rights
y NORMAN WALKEt , .
CHICAGO Democratic con
vention platform drafters neared
a showdown Tuesday night on the
smouldering civil rights issue.
Dixie delegates, striving for a
party racial stand the South can
live with," kept their state groups
largely unpledged or behind favor
ite son candidates for the presi
dential nomination. . -
The South 's refusal so far to
..choose between the two leading
contenders, A dial Stevenson and
Averell Harriman. Is frankly in
tended to give tt bargaining posi
tion ea the drafting of civil
rights plank for the platform.
But Gov. G. Mennen Williams
of Michigan, who advocates
strong party stand for racial
equality and recognition of the
Supreme Court decision on school
desegregation, sounded a note of
alarm.
-Minority Rale"
, He said unless "liberal forces"
consolidate, the party nomination
could he determined by a minority
bloc. He said the convention was
"drifting dangerously" with in
creasing possibility of "a dead
lock with unforseeable results."
The 17-member platform draft
ing committee has been saving the
civil rights issue for Hs last item
of business. Party leaders ar
ranged this in hopes of a com
promise that would avoid an open
convention Fight and jeopardize
party unity in November.
The time is now at hand for the
drafting group to move fast. It
must finish its Job Tuesday night
nr early Wednesday so the full
ins-member platform committee
can give Hs okay and send the
completed work to the convention
floor Wednesday night. ,
Twn Planks
The drafting group meanwhile
completed its business policy and
labor planks.
The first accuses the Republi
can party of being "an instrument
of special privilege" and says that
President Eisenhower's adminis
tration has allowed giant corpora
tions to "dominate our economy."
The labor plank draft repeats
the Democrats' 19S2 pledge to
work for full repeal of the Taft
Hartley law, and pledges to write
a new labor relations law based
on "past experience" and the
former Wagner Act.

son Tuesday said he is gaining in
his drive for the Democratic pres
idential nomination and he heard
a chorus of demands for Senator
Estes Kefauver for his running
mate.
Stevenson, who has been mak
ing a three-day round of visits to
state delegations, was asked if he
was picking up any more dele
gates. "We pick them up everywhere
we go," Stevenson said with a
smile.
He spoke in that optimistic man
ner as he entered a room where
he visited with the Iowa delega
tion. Later, his press eecretary,
Roger Tubby, told newsmen:
"The bandwagon may have
slowed down after Truman made
his announcement, but it's still
rolling.".
Former President Truman has
endorsed Gov. Averell Harriman
of New York for the nomination.
Stevenson and Sen. Kefauver
appeared at a gathering of dele
gates who had supported the Ten
nessee Senator before he with
drew from the presidential con
quest in favor of Stevenson.
Both asked support for Steven
son, snd when they had finished
many in the crowd chanted:
"We want both of them. We
want both of them."
However, there also were chants
of "We want Harriman."

Nothing takes to the road like a Chevy!
Once in a blue moon a cr like thi
comes along-a design so advanced
in performance, no beautifully bal
anced that it stands out above
every other car on the highway.
It has a solid, sure-footed way of
going that makes driving aafer
. and more pleasant on any road.
And you feel a very special sense
of security in its rapid-fire respon
siveness to your touch on the wheel,
brakes and accelerator,.
You can see that the '56 Chevy it
a standout for style. But until you
have driven one you're missing the
best part of the news -the fact
that Chevrolet is the smoothest
golidest, moat wedded-to-the-road
automobile you ever bosed. Try it
