These methods now will be considered, and prob- « ily in some form adopted, by som°, r all of the Democratic state conventions which shortly will be tai:- inj place in the South. The sense of the governors' recommendations is the South should participate in the Democratic National Convention, but only win, the understanding tiiat Southern electors will not be bound to support a civil rights candidate. McGrath Denounces Southerners Advance notice to this effect, would be submitted to the convention in writing by the represcnta- lives of any state so minded. That poses a tough one for Mr. Truman and McGrath to decide. The SS4 question would be whether to seal convention delegates who had «i\en ndvancc notice that their states reserved the right to bolt the convention's nominee. McGrath aheady has denounced the governors' proposal a.s undemocratic. There was at Ica-sl a him in what lie said that the convention would undertake to discipline the protesting Southerners. .

Slate l'ioti-sls Pro|Hlsetl The report called on the Southern stales lo adopi resolutions !n opposition to the Truman program and to declare that they will not Mippou any candidate who favors such legislation. The legislation listed in the re- ixn't included fair employment I practices, anti-lyncliing, anti-poll I tax and "federal laws interfering wiih separation of races and any other laws violating state sove- rcisnty."
