Firmness Surprise Naturally, when Truman threw his bombshell, the reporters began canvassing the delegations to see what the effect this year the film industry has spent in the neighborhood of '25 million dollars on three pictures vying for the title of "thc greatest ever." Each classic is based on the ordinary a literary man has heard of all his life, but spent precious little time studying.

It shook a bit but didn't waver. Especially significant was Mrs. Roosevelt's intimation that maybe Harry Truman was angling for the nomination for himself or for Sen. Symington of Missouri. Some delegates promptly pointed out trial it is most unusual for a party leader'to desert a "favorite son" as fast as Truman did. The Missouri delegation, on the other hand, is still pledged to cast a ballot or two for Symington. He has some strength in other states, but it is scattered. The nomination will not go to a "dark horse", because no large bloc of votes is of the bitter end or "never-never" kind. It's true with respect to the candidacies rates for electricity in Wood River and East Alton, effective Sept. 1. William Goebel, 5-J, died at St. Francis Hospital, Litchfield, from injuries suffered when his pet IU)-yeur-old horse kicked him. He was survived by his widow, Mrs. Katie Goebel, and three children, Arnold, William and Mrs. Fred Sangman. John Beard, assistant pastor of Cherry Street Baptist Church, had been engaged to fill the pulpit of First Baptist Church at East Alton, during absence of the pastor, the Rev. Hubert L.

The Standard Oil baseball team of the Piasa Bird League defeated the International Shoe Tannery, 5 to 4, to go into first place with a six-won and none-lost record.

The only progress made in civil rights has been by presidential action or rulings of the Supreme Court. The Democrats can't, of course, make any promises for the court. They could endorse principles which would more or less commit a Democratic president to some action. But neither Adlai Stevenson nor Gov. Averell Harriman of New York, the leading candidates for the party's presidential nomination, has made any militant promises. Southern leaders here have felt they had to put up some kind of 'fight against almost the mildest an anti-labor meeting, I'm walking out right now." Bell sheepishly backtracked. Gov.

The question asked them was : Whom do you consider to be the most effective candidate for vice president in the Republican and Democratic parties? The re- suits showed Gov. Herter of Massachusetts running ahead of Vice President Nixon, and Sen. Kefauver of Tennessee running ahead of Sen. Symington of Missouri. Sen. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota received only a scattering of votes. Here is the detailed reaction of editors: Republican ticket: Hei-ter 41 per cent Nixon 37.5 per cent Sec. of the Treasury Humphrey 11 per cent Democratic Ticket: Kefauver 35 per cent Symington '2(i per cent Sen.

Less than 30 minutes before his public testimony, he told Minnesota's .Sen. Hubert Humphrey that the Democrats should take a strong stand on civil rights. "We should make our position clear," he said firmly. As for southern reaction, he snorted: "You know we got along without those boys in 1038."

Veteran Director King Vidor, vho spent a year and a half film- ig "War and Peace," believes -lollywood's return to the colossal pic is its best bet for survival. "The day of the cheap grind ilm is over," he said. "To get peo- )le out of their homes and into he movie houses you have to give hem productions too big to fit a 'V screen. "And they have to be pictures jig in theme, too, something hey'll remember lor a long time." Vidor spent $40 on his first film, a two-reeler on auto racing called, 'The Tow," made when he was .8. He played six roles himself married his leading lady, riorence Vidor, who later became a famous actress. II cost $6,000,000 to make "War and Peace," a saga of Napoleon's fatal invasion of Russia and re- jarded by many as the greatest novel ever written. "That's why I like this business," mused Vidor, "You can go from J40 to $6,000,000 in a single lifetime. It's the most expensive picture ever made up until now." But this record, if it is one, has already fallen. Cecil B. DeMille is reported to have spent from $12,000,000 to $15,000,000 on "The Ten Commandments," the figure depending on which Paramount Pictures spokesman you talk to.

South Against Averell Basically, Harriman would antagonize the South and cause a political revolt there and perhaps give rise to h third party on the states' rights order, such as happened in 1948. Most of the delegates realize that the support of the South in the electoral college is absolutely essential. So Harriman may be eliminated on that ground unless the platform adopted is drafted as a major concession \p the South ways so. | as well a.« the Democratic ses-. badge wjtn tne j nf i uential Joe Exactly 12 years ago Harry j sions.

Concililory Terms So the way the platform shapes up will have a good deal to do with the outcome of the convention and could furnish some surprises. It seems improbable, however, that the Stevenson managers, who have control of the platform committee, would let the situation grow precarious. Even Sen. Humphrey of Minnesota, a staunch Stevenson supporter, who was one of the leaders in the fight for the civil rights program in the 1948 and 1952 conventions, is talking in conciliatory terms. Stevenson himself now says that, in his impromptu interview last week, he meant to say that the platform should "support" the Supreme Court deci- 39 Annotinremeot S6 That is (ab.) 40 Mistakes 58 Morning 41 Idolize (ab.) or leader*."

The favorite argument now heard is that you don't "approve" or "disapprove" Supreme Court rulings — you either "obey" and "support" them 01 you "disobey" and fail to "support" or "enforce" them. In the final analysis, there's always a good political reason advanced in picking the vice presidentia' candidate—he must bring strength to the national ticket—Gov, Meyner of New Jersey is a good example. He is strong in a state that the Democrats desperately need to win. Sen. Humphrey brings strength from Minnesota. Missouri is "in the bag", some Dem ocratic strategists say, so they are not counting on Symington for (he second spot, though the southernres like him. Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas, of course, could emerge as a real peace- offering to the South by this convention.
