Truman Bombshell

(Program on Page 2.) By Edward T. Folliard =| @iaff Reporter |

CHICAGO, Aug. The Democratic National ‘Con- vention of 1956 opens here! Monday, and it promises to be a humdinger.

A furious battle for the presidential nomination was under way on this Sabbath Day Adiai E. Stevenson and Gov. Averell Harriman of New York. as the two men fiitted from delegation to dele gation trying to line up sup port. The competition between them will continue right into the balloting on Thursday night in the International Am- phitheater in Chicago's stock-

yards. ' Twenty-four hours after former President Harry § Tru- man’s dramatic pronouncement in favor of Governor Harriman, this appeared to be the situa- tion in this seething city: Stevenson continued to be far. far ahead of all other candi- dates, although shért of the @A6\%- ito win. His campaign managers said he had lost only a few delegates It parent, however, that h wagon had iost its momentum.

Wait-And-See Altitude

Harriman’s hopes were soar- ing, thanks to Mr. Truman's blessing, but there was no sign of a stampede in his direction He remained what some had been calling him earlier—the “rich underdog.”

Favorite-son candidates, who a few days ago were expected to release their delegates quickly to a likely winner, were holding off and waiting to see what is going to happen

A wait-and-see attitude also was noted in state delegations that came here uncommitted to any sas delegation, for listened to appeals by both Stevenson and Harriman. but decided to remain on the fence for the time being

Twenty-two Democratic and Republican congres- sional leaders yesterday dis- cussed the Suez crisis at an extraordinary 80-minute White House conference with President Eisenhower and 14 other Administration officials.

The leaders afterward agreed that, as Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson (D-Tex.) put it to newsmen: “No commitments were asked and none was giv en No decisions were made.”

A White House statement said the President and Secre- tary of State John Foster Dulles, who did most of the talking, had stressed “the con tinuing gravity of the situa- tion,” yet were “hopeful” that the 22-nation London Confer-

Takes Issue With Trum

She Stands Firm For Stevenson, Savs By. Alfred - " er; Maneacing Editor, The He's a Fighter, Too

By Christine Sadler Coe

Apecial Correspondent

CHICAGO, Aug. 2 the preface that she, too, loves a fighter and has no in- tention of yielding her own considerable claim to that title, Eleanor Roosevelt today launched a dramatic open battle with former President Harry S. Truman

The issue is his preference for Averell Harriman and hers for Adlai Stevenson as the Democratic nominee for Presi- dent

It has occurred to her she told a press conference called to open the breach, that the former President has a favorite son up his sleeve in case his support for the New York Gov- ernor should pull the nomina- tion away from Adlai Steven- son

and drive the South to dissi- dent fury—and all in behalf of a near-hopeless longshot?

Next to the outcome itself, this is Chicago's most absorb- ing question today.

This is the answer. It is com- pounded in roughly equal parts of Mr. Truman's inability to be a trimmer, the steadily increas- ed chilling of his political love- affair with Adlai Stevenson, his mounting anger at what he deemed was Stevenson's gross rejection of his advice and help, and his firm conviction that Harriman is the better quali- fied man

The story goes back a long way—back, in fact, to 1952 when, for a period of many months the President sought to press the nominatoin, on Stevenson. The Illinois gover- nor demurred, saying he had declared himself in the race for another term.

Mr. Truman argued that an early declaration for the presi- dential nomination would make’ for a breeze in the convention. He offered the assurance of full support and amounted to a virtually non- contested nomination. He of-' fered it several times.

The sharp «eference was Mr. TPuman’'s statement of Satur- day that Harriman, an old hand in the Federal Govern- ent, was the only candidate ho would not have to gO through a “trial and error period before he could put a firm hand to the Nation's helm Also, she emphasized, if it's a question about who is the better fighter, Stevenson's rec- ord is superior to that of Gov Harriman.
