The Commission had previously allotted one-third of its secondary allotment for state counties. Contracts for 14 state and three county road projects totalling $1,870,000 were awarded yesterday. The bids were rejected as too high, and a third was awarded conditionally.

And, having favored Harriman, the President took the position that this was enough — he couldn't J! be expected to be friendly to Kt« .fauver also; so he opposed Kefauver openly despite the letter's large public following. This' was the public record before the convention and up to the hour of actual voting. But then it developed that the President had adeptly played off the radicals against the opportunists and meanwhile put the real party power behind a middle-of-the-road man, Stevenson of Illinois. It was good maneuvering — as good as this generation has ever seen. Of course the Democratic party had it to do. But the point is, they did it. Gov. Adlai Stevenson County job on the Marked Tree lorthoast road. The contract for construction of 6.2 miles of grading, drainage structures and crushed stone base course on the Clinton-Southwest road, Highway 6, was awarded conditionally. The low bid of $G2,- 334 submitted by Fell Vaughan Company of North Little Rock was 10 per cent above the Highway Department's estimate. The Com mission authorized Department en gineers to recheck its estimates. The Commission added several highway proj&cts to the program which it approved this spring bringing the total to approximately $2,600,000.

In a sort of swan song to the Democratic party as its leader, he offered to whistle-stop the country for his successor. "We are going to win in 1952 the same way we won in 1048," he told a shouting, applauding party convention, "and I pledge you now that I am going to take my coat off and do everything I can to help' him win." The President talked over the campaign ahead with Jacob Arvey, Illinois national coimnitteernan who was a power in the Stevenson draft, Chicago's Mayor Martin Ken nelly, Senate Secretary Leslie Biffie, Secretary of the Treasury Jqhn Snyder, Attorney General James McGranery and House Speaker Sam .Rayburn. After the nomination was assured, Stevenson arrived at a restaurant and he and Trurnaa went to the convention. After a tumultous welcome, the President poured oil on party wounds.
