At this moment there's a to-do ov.-r the kind of civil rigfits plank tin convention will approve. Hiith factions know the gigantic difficulty of passing civil rights laws. If there was n convention bust-up over civil rights as a matter of principle — on both sides -••- U would be understandable. The southerners would certainly be consistent in their opposition for Ihe :.;ilu: of n principle. Hut, otherwise, there's no practical reason for a convention bust- up OP civil rights, in view of the almost insuperable handicaps in, the way of netting civil rights bills j through the senate. It may be that the southern leaders, knowing the South's im- perlanee to the party this year, want tn put a damper on civil rights talk in the party platform. Repetition of it every four years has the effect of an irritant, keeps the issue alive. Or it may be that, cooly know- inn how almost impossible it would be to translate civil rights platform promises into action, soulh- | erners are pushing to get other concessions from the convention.

"Nothing has happened to chatlge our plan to nominate him for ;the presidency and support him as long ns feasible," Clyde Brown of Hot Springs, chairman of the delegation's steering committee, said!' today.

He made the accusation yesterday in his home city of Jonesboro and added that his answer to the false statements he said had been made about him was "simply that I am still in the race and leading the field." Comparing his opponents to "old line Tammany Hall politicians," Cherry said that he urged them to debate with him or to participate through representatives in his radio talkathons. He said they had refused. Jack Holt harked back some Women Get Their Day in Convention By RUTH COWAN CHICAGO Wl—What about husband of a woman in the race for vice president? The question was raised at a news c onference held by Mrs. India Edwards, Democratic National Committee vice chairman, esterday. Mrs. Edwards is one of two women being promoted for the party's vice presidential nomination, and she has said: "If nominated, I will run." "When you get to be vice president, what are your husband's plans?" asked a reporter. "Oh, we haven't gone that far,' said Mrs. Edwards, who is married to Herbert T. Edwards, a State Department executive. Mrs. Edwards is not taking her own candidcay too seriously. What she is taking seriously is the idea that women should run for office. "And so when it was suggested I run," she said, "what could I do but take my own medicine?" A reporter wanted to know if Edwards approved of his wife's entry in the race. Mrs. Edwards replied, "Yes, if he had not, I would not have said I would.' Mrs. Edwards conceded she had sort of got herself into an embarrassing position last week when she saw a press dispatch quoting Mrs. Richard Nixon, wife of the Republican vice presidential nominee. Mrs. Nixon said, according to the dispatch, that even though she and her husband campaigned as a team—he has served. in the House and Senate - she petitors. The s t a t e purchasing has been mentioned in speculation for vice president mainly in eveht! Gov. Stevenson of Illinois gets the No. 1 position. In line with Fulbright's desire to keep the carnival atmosphere out of his nomination, the delegation plans no "spontaneous" demonslra lion for him, other than to stand and applaud. Storm Whalcy, Silonm Springs, is to place Fulbright's name in nomination, probably Wednesday. Fayetteville Records Quake three years to the controversy over wholesale shipment — allowed under a since-repealed 1949 act — of liquor from Arkansas into neigh boring dry states. Speaking at Ft. Smith, Holt said McMath, to whom he gave the new title of "king of bootleggers," was responsible for the situation and declared that "if he (McMath) did it once and failed to stop until the pressure got too strong, he'll do it again." McMath who like Cherry was in Northeast Arkansas, said at Ely theville that he would continue to seek equal educational opportunities for every child in the state. He said that 60 per cent of Arkansas' school districts need state aid to maintain adequate facilities. Murry promised an audience at Rison yesterday that all purchases would be made openly "when I am governor." "Every Arkansas business with anything to sell the state will be assured of an opportunity to submit bids on the same basis as its com FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.

Aged Politician Ends Career, Labor Blamed By JOE HAUL CHICAGO I/It Vice President Alben Barkley announced the end of a 47-year political career last night with a statement so long delayed that it was almost anti- limalic. I Rumors that the 74-year-old Veep" was going to get out of ic presidential race had begun o circulate even before the 11 . in. hour which he set for release f his announcement, Bui when this hour passed nnd lie time dragged on almost until midnight, the reports got so wide preiid on the convention floor that icwsmon filed stories from there vithout waiting for the official vord downtown. The setting for the washing oul of a career that had many proud moments was in n downtown hotel ar from the excitement and crush of the Convention Hall floor. Stevenson Boom Grows Steadily as Gov.

Only n few showed up at first, but, as the word got around, elevators began dumping more newspaper, radio and tele vision men off at the seventh floor. Before midnight, more than n hundred of them wore packed into the hall. Police kept the crowd away from Barkley's suite. The air grew stifling.

(Editor's note: Trellis Mae Feeble, America's most average wife, sees youth as the keynote of the Democratic party, In the following letter to her husband giving a woman's view of the proceedings at the national donkey serenade:) By HAL BOYLE CHICAGO Of)—Dearest Wilbur, Politics is cruel. Yon give your life to Ihe people, and when you ask them a twilight favor — they look the other way. I feel both sad and proud today — as sad as if I were the daughter of vice president Barkley, and the sister of young Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr. At the convention hall yester- Porker Wonts Out of McMath Suit LITTLE ROCK 1* — State .Revenue Commissioner Carl F. Parker has asked Pulaski Chancery Court to deny Atty. Gen. Ike Murry's day I saw the political death of 'Dear Alben,' and the birth as a national political figure of President Roosevelt's son. In a single day I saw the sun set for one man of 74 years — and the sun rise on a man who has lived just halt that long. I went to the evening session as a guest of a dubious Texas delegate. I believe I mentioned him in my first letter to you. He is a very courtly gentleman and says he owns "a small oilfield — not more than half the size Illinois." He sent an orchid to my room for me to wear. It was a small orchid — not more than half, the size of Chicago, but colored prettier, Well the Democrats got to squabbling like Republicans, and fought the Civil War all over again trying to get the Dixiecrats to take a loyalty oath to support thej are going shopping together to morrow. It looks to me like the Demo-i crats have decided youth must be .served, as tho old saying goes. The young Democrats here have lisen up and taken over the party's first unbossed convention in 20 years. It was a coalition of three polillcally young men who pul over the "loyalty oalh" designed lo keep Ihe south from bolting again. They were Sen. Blair Moody, Gov. G. Mennen Williams — a handsome, clean-shaven fellow — and Rep. Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr. But it was young Roosevelt who took the convention by storm. The delegates sprang up cheering when he was introduced as "the great son of a great president." It was as if a giant pulse of electricity had swept the great hall.. That politically magic name. Hf had the famous Roosevelt toss of the head. The sweeping Roosevelt gesture...A voice rougher and more booming than his father as he said: "We do not want to drive Democrats out of the party with this rule ... We want to keep them in ihe party." As he spoke he looked up at a portrait of his dad at the other end of the hall. Honey, I know 1 am being sentimental but I thought I could actually see the face of his father'break Into a small secret smile of pride in his son* — just a crinkling at the corners of his mouth. Am I being silly, Wilbur? n the way or their delegations pledging to buck tho convention's nominees as the rightful Democratic candidates In their states. As delegates begun trooping buck to this big hnll for their second day's session, southern del(.•gallons were holding caucuses in downlown hotels. One group of southern 'loaders huddled In tho room of Gov. Kennon of Louisiana. Kennon told reporters that "there were no conclusions to bo announced" but admitted that the subject of general Southern action was discussed. However, Sen. Spcssnrci Hollanc of Florida who also attended told reporters that It was obvious that there would be a general move on' the part of the Southerners to do- dine to take the pledge and then see what the convention would do. Kennon said those at tho meeting Included Sens. Byrd of Virginia, Stennis of Mississippi, Gov. Battle of Virginia and Gov, White of Missssippl.
