Political Ringside Demos Hauling Out Artillery By ROflKllT IIOGAN Dcs Moincs (IDPA» —Iowa drmocrata nrc Imuling out the hcnvy artillery for their Etnto prcsldcntlnl convention which la slnlnd for Wrtlnesdny In Des Motnes. Indications ore for good convention battles on several iasucs, audi as: • Whether or not the state dclcRivtion to the Chicago nat'.onni convention shall be unlnstructed or pledged wholly or partially to ii presidential candidate. At least two districts will lead a fight on the floor for splitting of the Iow« delegation vote in order to permit costing of one-hnlf votes ,it the national convention. There may be some opposition In the nu'lijctlon of Mrs, Florence Lynch of L.<'Mnr.s iis nntloniil con\- mitteewoman, although such a movement, now rumored, may be more local than anything. There Is sentiment, however, favoring Mrs. Ruth B. Metller of Mason City tor nntlon.-il eommUteewoninn_ * * * M. I'. IIOGAN of Dubuque, national committeeman. Is serving out the unexpired term of G. G, Jeck of Atlantic, who resigned to accept the job as lown collector of Internal revenue. That term is expiring and Hogan %vlll seek the election on his own at this convention. It is unlikely that oppo.iltlon will de vctop, although li. could. A heated battle la expected over the .tnlecllon of delegates. The Iowa Ketauver-for-presidont organization will make n determined effort to obtain delegates instructed to vole for Kefnuver at Chicago. The nnllonal commlttecmnn, in March, wrote lel- ters to all 2,088 state convention delegates, urging an unlnstructed delegation from Iowa to the nn- lionnl parley because of the "wide open" race. He questioned the wisdom of an uninslructed delegn • tlon, declaring Iowa delegates should be given the opportunity to use their own judgment and discretion as (he occasion arises at the national convention. He also look the ottitude tlint unlnstructed dclogatlons, in the battle over the nominee, a,re th" ones that gel credit foi convention accomplishmiint.s. He wants Iowa to be in as favornlde a spot a.s pos- with the party's chosen candidate for presidi'nl. « » * SKN. GCV GILLKTTK, who will keynote the stal.- convention, also enters Into the candidate pictur<'. A "fovorlte son" movement is underway sponsored I owu Dully I'ress Writer not only by Cherokee democrais but .liso with the added support of the Dva Moines county group, and others. An embarrassing situation could develop If th-; Kcfauver group presses Its fight for .some Instructed delegates in the presence of aillotte und In the face of the favorite-son drive. There is conslde|-nl)le .support for n first ballot commitment tor Gillette at the national convention, with the Iowa delegation to be released by him on the second ballot. A fight would develop If the senn tor tried to control the delegates. Knstern Iowa democrats are still strong for Gov. Adlal Stevi.'nson of Illinois and will put up n slron;; fight against any efforts for an inr.lructed delegation. * * * IOWA «'ir,L IIAVl'; 24 votes to cast at the na- Monal convention, four more than in 1948. The additional ones are a bonus because President Truman carried the state In the last presidential election. Because so many party members are expressing nn interest in attending the Chicago event this summer, a real t'ffort will be made to split the votes so that more delegates can be seated in tlie convention. Normally the slate would send 16 delegates from the districts, two from each, plus the eight at-large, making a total of 24. Some would keep the 16 district votes intact, divvy four at-large spots to the stale chalrm .'in und vice-chairman and the national committeeman and woman, and split the four remaining at-large to have votes giving 28. Other sentiment is for dividing the district vote.": to one-half, also four of the at-lnrge votes, and give a full vote to the four top st.ate party members. « * * TIIK .STATE CONVKNTION will get underwigi- at tl a. m. Wednesday at KRNT theater. District caucuses have been scheduled for 9:30 a. m. preceding tiie convention. Pre-caucus sessions Tuesday night, if any. will be held in the same rooms assigned for the lormnl morning district caucuses. The Democratic state centra! committee will meet Tuesday afternoon, day before the convention. Delegates selected to the national convention will nn'ct immediately after the state convention to or- ganizi^ and attend business details. The I'altnei Hcuse will be the official headquar- teis of the lowans while in Chicago. ComblniKK tlic vindicator and Ilepubllcmn. Publlsi«<i Kver.v KvenInK Kxcepl Sunday and Principal nolidays.
