THURSDAY, MAT 15, 1952 BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COJTSIER NBWS PACK Democrats Huddle To Name Keynoter CHICAGO l-fl— Democratic leaders went into a huddle today to name the keynoter for their party's national convention. They also planned to choose a team to start working on building a 1S52 platform. The Democratic Arrangements Committee gathered for a closed session at the Stock Yard Inn, next j^loor lo the International Ampht- "™healre, where lhe convention will open July 21. The meeting, had Ihis program before It: Recommending a temporary chairman who will deliver the keynote speech at lhe convention. Appointment Planned Appointing a preliminary drafting committee to begin preparation of a platform. Considering & permanent chairman for Ihe sessions that will produce nominees for President and vice president. Studying the't convention blueprints now taking shape. Some members talked of Gov. Paul Dever of Massachusetts as lhe best bet for the keynoter assignment and Rep. Sam Rnyburn of Texas, House speaker, as the favorite for permanent chairman, a post he held at the 1948 convention. It was indicated a half dozen names may enter lhe keynoter dis cussions. Among those mentioned in meeting eve talk were Sen. Jos- jph C. O'Mahoncy of Wyomini 9^n. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota and Ernest W. McFarland of Arizona. Senate majority leader. O'Mahoney Mentioned One member, M rs. M a rguerile Thompson of Colorado, said she would like to see the post go to Sen. O'Msihoney. Another member Calvin Rawlings of Utah, said he would prefer a Westerner, Committee sources esthnatec that the preliminary drafting grouj may have 20 mbmbers. This group will sift and study ideas for the platform. The advance aim seemed to be to balance the appointees so that all major geographical sections and points of view on such controversial subjects as civil rights will be represented. The arrangements committee may invite Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois io make an address of welcome. Stevenson has said he could not accept the presidential nomination. But there has been talk of a possible Stevenson draft, and this apparently has put him out of consideration for the key noter job. The arrangements group technically will recommend a keynoter to the full national committee July 19 and the convention July 21. The choice usually is accepted.

Prisoners "can expect humane Irc-.ilmont in the future." "There will be no more forcible screening." American authorities quicklj staled that prisoners have been killed only in riots instigated by the Communist prisoners themselves; prisoners have been treated humanely; and there never has been "forcible screening" to determine whether prisoners want to go back to Red rule. The Colson agreement also provided for prisoner committees. Repercussions Expected Clark's repudiation was expected to have prompt repercussion in armistice negotiations and on the Communist radio.
