PAGB TWBLTB (AMC.) OOURIBlt KIWI TUWOAY, MAT IT, Kefauver Steps Up Pace In Bid for California's Primary Votes Next Week By MORRIS SACRAMENTO name-calling Republican battle for nfttlonal convention delegates was rivaled today by a Democratic atop- Kefauver drive In furious cnm- patRning for California's presidential primary next Tuesday. Four slates of delegates, two from each party, are on the preferential ballot. Republican Gov. Karl Warren and Democratic Sen. Eslo.s Kefauver of Tennessee are contested by whn t amount to imin- strucled delegations. Election law prohibits write-ins. Vofers out of a record registration of 5,383,521 will pick 70 OOP delegates nnd 68 Democratic, The the combined political push and finances of or ffani nation Democrats, He says there have been stop-Kefauver movements in other primaries—but nothing like this. The regulars are almost solidly behind a favorite son, Ally. Gen. Edmund G, Brown, ranking Democratic officeholder In the state and heir to the stranded Truman filatc. Present indications favor Kefauver slightly. To Brown It's u stop-commitment rather than slop-Kef auvor slate. At otic point he* placed Ko- ftiuver high on the list of candidates who would ho considered. But he also has said ho got into the race—nt the very last moment primary signup continue?, the | after President Truman withdrew Democrats in the lead, 2 f &35,13 to 2,192,446—but (hey have lost tfG,-i37 since 1950 while Republicans have gained 247,634, Warren appears certain to overcome hard-hitting opposition—a coalition of hate, he calls it—and provide sizable company for the six delegates he won in Wisconsin, The anyone - but - Warren slate, striking at the governor's policies as "New Dealish" or socialistic, seems inclined toward Sen. Robert A. Taft or Ocn. Douglas MacArthur. Its nominal candidate. Rep, Thomas H. Werdel, promises to release hfs delegates so they can make a free choice nt Chicago, But the big fight Is on the Democratic side. Kefauver Is making a strong, lone-handed bid for his largest single bloc of convention votes against from California—to prevent Kc- fnuver from establishing squatters rights here. Werdel, he promises to release his delegates right alter the election. Recently he said more (Jinn half of the 7 delegates on his slate-—I with one-half vole each—preferred Illinois Gov. Adlai Stevenson, who hasn't said he's willing to run. California's Democratic delegation will be exceeded at tlic national convention only by New York (94) and Pennsylvania (70). The stakes urc equally high for third-term Gov. Warren, 1948 GOP nominee for vice president, After finishing second in Wisconsin and Oregon, he is in n position where he must wallop the Werdel slate convincingly (o revive his California-built vote-getting reputation Connecticut GOP Set to Give All 22 Votes to Eisenhower .. .. By RELMAN MORIN .. .. HARTFORD, Conn. W>—Connecticut Republicans, barring a long- shot political upset, prepared today to give all 22 of the state's national convention voles to Gen, Dwight D. Elsenhower, They opened their stale convention last night. Admirers of Sen, Robert A. Taft *re still hoping to make a fight today to elect some delegates fa- rorable to him In the GOP presidential nomination race. They claim that popular sentiment in the state is at least 30 per cent for him, and probably higher, and so a part of the 22- man delegation should reflect this feeling- But they don't believe their chances are very good. The convention will approve 12 delegates-at-Iarge, already virUml- ly sclented, and eiecl 10 more from the five congressional districts. In only one, which contains Ihe so-called "siJk stocking" district of Fairfield, do the Taft lieutenants hope to make a fight. Hut they doubt that they will be able lo rally sufficient strength in the caucus to put across their candidates. Moreover, (he convention nmy adopt a resolution pledging the whole delegation to Eisenhower. There was considerable talk of thai last night nftur the first session. The answer to Eisenhower's strength in Connecticut, according to Taft'fi admirers. Is GDV. Johr Lodge. Lodge is a brother of Sen. Hcnrj, Cabot Lodge of M ass nchuseUs, national campaign chairman for Eisenhower. His term rims for four years, and a Brent many appoint xnentfi for political offices in the state come up for renewal next July, More than six weeks ago, Lodge and Clarence t Gappy) Baldwin state GOP chairman, began work Ing for Elsenhower. Tatt's people claim they sewed up the five c!is tricts at that time. Although Tiifl made three appearances here, anc won some warm admirers, bis cl forts were not sufficient to offset the governor's persuasion power. The Taft people thought, nm still hold a faint hope, that a figh over the Connecticut, national com miUeemcm, William N, Brennnn might provide a rallying point Co theit own movement. Gov. Loritre has purged Urcnnnn antl Ercnnim has announced tha he would not make n fight for re election.

W — A test has been developed to see whether wheat is dry enough to combine or store, says John Curtis, marketing specialist for the North Carolina Stale College extension service. To make the test, place a snm- ple of the grain in a small glass bottle with some ammonium chloride, make Ihe bottle airtight by closing securely, and shake t h e bottle 50 times. If Ihe ammonium chloride becomes dump, the grain is too wet to store safely. The new method was worked out by Prof. S. T. Dexter of Michigan state College.
