The required two-thirds majority on that ballot was M. Pleading tiredness, delegates then demanded adjournment. After wrangling on procedure the Assembly finally decided to change its closing date to midnight Tuesday and start voting all over Monday morning. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.. chief U. S. delegate; Vasily V. Kuznetsov, Sovie' deputy foreign minister; Sir Pierson Dixqn, head of the British delegation; Mates and Romulo all joined in a huddle after the session broke up. Mates said that he was sure that the contest could be solved by the Maza lottery and that the Yugoslavs would remain in the race on that understanding Delegates of Australia, New Zealand, the Soviet Union and many Latin American countries called the scheme illegal, unconstitutional and beneath the dignity of the "O. H. East-West differences cropped up again in the Assembly's final action on the disarmament program, adopted 56-7. The whole Soviet bloc—it now numbers nine but only seven countries were present—voted against the Western-sponsored resolution which called for the disarmament commission and Its big-power subcommittee to renew a study of disarmament plans. It would; ask them to give priority to the filscn- hower proposal for an exchange of aerial reconnaissance between the Soviet Union and the United States as a starter toward disarmament. The Soviet bloc argued that the plan was faulty because it omittec specific arms reductions and a ban on nuclear weapons.

He said this should be done through hearings of a type "other than that of a ''kangaroo court'." He recalled that the Senate last Jan. 10 passed n resolution declaring that "Its appropriate committees shall continue" to investigate and expose communism. He said the resolution looked then like an effort to "offset" the fact that Senate Democrats hud joined solidly in the Senate's vote a month earlier to condemn some of McCarthy's conduct.

Lausche, who has .id he wants his state's "favorite son" designation. Last night, Kefauver attended a Baltimore dinner with 85 Maryland Democratic leaders. He heard Mayor Thomas D'Alesandro of Baltimore say in a speech that Maryland Democrats are keeping "on open mind" on their party's presidential nomination. Aother Ohio favorite son aspirant bobbed up yesterday when Republican Sen. Bricker announced he will run in the primary as a stand-in for Eisenhower, if the President decides later to seek a second terra. If Eisenhower doesn't run, Bricker said the Ohio delegation will "meet as often as necessary" to decide whom lo support. Bricker said his action was designed to relieve Eisenhower of any embarrassment from demands that he make what Bricker called an "untimely" decision on whether to run again.

Hiestand. who predicted Reuther would dominate the Democratic convention next year, said in Los Angeles that Reuther had studied communism l.i Russia. Hiestand called Reuther, president of the United Auto Workers, "a Socialist with a Communist-Russian background." Firing back at Hiestand, the UAW issued a statement in Detroit denying that Reuther is a Socialist or that he had studied communism in Russia. The UAW said Hiestand had "identified himself v.'Hh the reactionary elements of the Republican party." Goldwater's blast came in reply to a previous UAW statement that the senator, chairman of the GOP senatorial campaign committee, had "maliciously, wantonly, and Velocity of light! s about 186,000 miles per second, so it will travel 5,880,000,000,000 miles in a year That distance is one light year.
