Illinois May Draft Stevenson By the Associated Press Illinois democrats convened at Springfield today amid talk of drafting their Gov. Adlal Stevenson for presidential nomination despite his plea: "Don't put mo In an awkward spot." Stevenson, reportedly President Truman's choice as a successor until he said he was running only for governor this year, la in Camp Cooke, Calif, He held a 30-mlnute telephone conversation last night with Jacob M. Arvey, Democratic national committeeman from Illinois. "I said I hoped that they would not put me in an awkward spot by proposing me for the presidency," Stevenson told reporters. "I made it as emphatic as I alwa>-s have, that I am a candidate only for re-election . as governor of Illinois." « * • ARVEY, IN Springfield, appeared not to have given up on getting the convention to endorse Stevenson for presidential nomination. The convention will name 20 at- largc delegates to the July national convention. E^ch of the 20 will have a half-vote, completing Illinois' 60-vote delegation. Backers of two southern senators seeking the presidency; meanwhile, differed over the effect of Tuesday's Florida primary. In that popularity poll, Richard Russell of Georgia topped Estes Kefauver of Tennessee 339,916 to 272,238 on the basis of returns from all but S6 of 1,682 precincts. Results are not binding on the state's delegates, to be elected May 27. * « « "Tins DEFINITELV stops the Kefauver movement," said Sen. Walter George of Georgia, a Russell man, adding It "proves Kefauver can't carry the southern states." Sen. Paui Douglas of Illinois disagreed. He said Kefauver made "a remarkably good showing against great odds," losing only because he was opposed almost solidly by Florida's press and political leaders. Both Russell and Kefauver expressed joy. -Russell said his Florida victory "puts new steam Into his campaign, swinging to the west next week. KefauVer said his Florida showing plus winning of 27 of Ohio's 54 delegates — also named Tuesday — practically assures his nomination. » « • SEN. ROBERT Taft of Ohio, who reaped all of Ohio's 56 republican votes Tuesday, also claimed sure nomination. Taft's headquarters said It gives him 404 vot«8 and the OWoan told newsmen he won't be topped. Nomination requires 604 GOP votes, 616 Democratic votes. The Associated Press delegate tabulation—based on concessions, pledges. Instructions and avowed leanings—gives: Republicans — Taft 332, Gen. Dwlght Elsenhower 280. Democrats—Kefauver 104 H, foreign aid chief W. Averell Harri man 93M., Russell 41>^. Other developments: >i> « * IN SHANNON, Ireland, John Foster Dulles predicted Elsenhow er win be elected President. Dulles, GOP foreign affairs expert, said ho does not count on being secretary of state tiut Indicated he considers hlroseli* the obvious man for the job. Dulles, en route home from a visit with Elsenhower in Paris, declined to say whether he would support the general's candidacy. Kefauver, about to open a New York headquarters today, said he Is going all out to get as many of the state's votes as he can. It was a challenge to top New York Democrats who are trying to corral all 94 delegates for Harrlman, the "favorite son."
