Stassen delegates will come from such industrial areas as Dayton, Toledo, Akron, Youngstown, Cleveland and, possibly, Stcubenvllte. Ohio will have 53 delegates to the O.O.P. convention. Stassen damaged Tnft's political prestige right in his own backyard. But he fell short of his own claim lhat he 'would take 12 or more Ohio delegates away from tlie Senator.
