Butler of Indiana as Democratic national chairman. The choice of Butler is in reality the climax of a two-year drive by Stevenson to overhaul the party machinery, heal old wounds, wipe cut a camoaign deficit of some $800,000 and restore the unity which was shattered in the elec. tion of 1952. In this period, the patty's cen< ter of gravity has shifted from former President Harry, S. Truman to Ste'venson, who is now by all odds th-» party's strong man And perhaps it was planned that way by Stevenson. But the important thing politically is that Stevenson has achieved his goals v/ith no loss of political face for any faction in the party, e has left no apparent v/ounds to e healed or untidy messes to_ be caned up later. His popularity'ap- etrs to be high in the South as ting for the luncheon and Christmas program. The recorded carol, "Silent Ni- Eht," opened the program following the luncheon.

Through Stevenson's influence, s old friend Stephen Mitchell had cen named Democratic national hairman. Mitchell was " little nown on the national political eerie,'but'he'worked hard to win riends and influence people. And oliticians generally agree he did good job for his party and for itevenson. Stevenson paid c ourt io the outhland. He soothed the South-! rners, whose pride had been hurt i the fight over the "loyalty ath" in the 1952 national conven- ion. He made friends for himself n Dixie where feeling had run so igh against Harry Truman. And yet while wooing the South, IB didn't snub Truman. He often conferred v/ith him and managed o keep his support. Stevenson never displayed this political finesse to better advan- .age than he did early last Sep- .ember when Democratic leaders met in Kansas City to plan a fundraising drive and to map campaign strategy. . , . Stevenson could easily have dom- nated that meeting had he wished. But instead he deferred to Truman and encouraged Truman to take he spotlight. : Truman responded by urging the party to double its campaign fund in th*e .fight 'for control of Congress an app eal , in cidentally, . which was .heeded and which may well :iave given the Democrats the ex- Ira..punch they needed to gain control of Congress. The payoff on Stevenson's political skill came at New Orleans last Saturday when his choice, Butler, was elected easily to the Democratic chairmanship with 70 of the national committee's 105 votes. Just about the only question left to be answered is this: Will Stevenson use tills political finesse to gain his party's presidential nom ination in 1956? A great many political experts think he, will; UN Expected to Condemn Chinese i \ 8y tGM HOOE ' UNITED NATIONS, N. Y, Western diplomats predicted today that the tJ N.

The 15-natlon Storing Committee voted over bitter Soviet opposition last night to call for urgent Assembly debate Wednesday on the Allied proposal. The resolution, agreed upon aft er a series of private talks by the IS, touches on three main points: 1. It charges Red China violated the Korean armistice agreement by holding the fliers. 2. It declares the Assembly should condemn such Violations. 3. It asks the 60-nation body t; call on Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold to use "unremitting efforts" to obtain release ol the-men and report back to thu Assembly by Dec. 31.
