THURSDAY, MAT 1, 1952 (AUK.) COURIER New Democrat Move to Draft Stevenson Seen Kcfauver Opponents May Again Seek Illinois Governor By JACK BELL WASHINGTON W>-A new move to "draft" Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois for a presidential nomination is under way among Democrats opposed to Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee. The move has the backing of some national party lieutenants who have shown their ability in maneuvering for candidates of their choice in recent Democratic conventions, particularly in the selection of vice presidenlial nominees. ' Stevenson has said emphatically he "could not accept" a presidential nomination since he is running for governor of Illinois. But Washington' friends believe the governor tempered (hat refusal by saying .recently he would be "flattered" if the party decided he could be of more service in the White House. Their belief that Stevenson might be available—under some circumstances—is bolstered by reports that calls from party leaders here to the governor have not brought any flat refusal to accept a draft. They think that, if the Repub- ^licans nominate Sen. Robert A. ~Taft of Ohio, Stevenson would become a willing candidate. As the situation stands. Sen. Kefauver seems likely to go into the .Chicago convention with the largest number of delegates committed outside the South. Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia may top him—with strictly Southern delegates—if Russell wins in a popularity test in Florida's primary next Tuesday. The same day. however, Kefauver may be collecting a large chunk of Ohio delegates, He has a 32-vote slate running in the 54- vote Democratic delegation. Former Sen. Robert Bulkley has a 54-vote slate In the field, so even If Kefauver elects all of his delegates, there will be 22 national convention votes left over. Bulkley's backers have tried in vain to get Stevenson to let them link their slate to him. They also have failed to interest Gov. Frank Lausche of Ohio. Some democrats here believe that Kefauver's delegate total at convention time will not match the tf total of those who are opposed to having him as the nominee. Sen. Robert E.

Queen Asks a Question DETROIT, Mich. <fi — Queen Juliana got an idea while watching the cars roll by on the Ford production line recently. "Why," she was reported to have asked Henry Ford II, "can't they paint all cars finished the same day In the same color — and a different color the next?" Said Ford.

Square Dancing Revival Experienced in West ALBUQUERQUE ,l.fl — Cowboys from Minnesota and cowgirls from the Bronx are taking up the old Southwestern practice of do-si-do and promenade. Square dancing Is enjoying a new boom with a strictly Western flavor, Dt^ens of square dance clubs with hundreds of members have started in Albuquerque since the government imported thousands of workers and service men to t h c Sandia Atomic Weapons Base and Kirlland Air Force Base. Square dancing as formerly done in the East was a slow dance with a set pattern and grace to burn. The man ramrodding a fast Western square dance is as — on his own as a jazz musician. Keeping up a continuous line of patter, the Western caller fills in the music with a commentary in riiyme, only a few words of which have anything to do with directing the dancing. Had Virus X?
