It meets in Philadelphia July 19. A Northern nominator would reduce the sectional apearance of the party rebellion. Strategy would be for Alabama or Arkansas to yteld to a Northern state when the nominating roll is called. The strategy would be to get Gen.

What the Southerners claim is that they have Northern partners in their plan to unseat Mr. Truman as party leader.

Fielding L. Wright of Missis- .sippi and Sen. Walter F. George, Ga., are likely starters. But Ike is the only man with whom the bolt- ers believe they might lick the Republican entry.
