TWO EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1955 Dial' PA-2-4600 for » WANT AD Taker Hike Number Of Delegates Butler Sees Total Doubled CHICAGO (INS)—Democratic National Chairman Paul M. Butler said today party leaders may vote to boost — possibly double — the number of 1956 convention dele. gates. Butler said the question of in creasing the total number of delegates may be resolved at today's closed session of the National Committee. The 1952 delegate total was 1,126. He explained that states like Illinois, Michigan and California are "interested" in Broadening the delegate base, adding: More People Interested "More people are interested in the campaign. They feel the convention is going to nominate the next President." This and other issues are being taken up in the four-day series of Democratic meetings against _ a backdrop of unfolding campaign activity marked by Adlai E. Stevenson's announcement for the Democratic presidential nomination. All the top contenders—potential as well as announced—will be at the Democratic rally before the week is •: ended. Sen. Esles Kefauver (D., Tenn.), and New York Gov. Averell Harriman are to arrive . tomorrow. Former President Harry S. Truman, a key figure-if not a candidate,.is s expected Saturday. These three and Stevenson speak at the $100-a-plate Democratic dinner in Chicago Saturday night. ••:';.' Questions Authority The chairman said that acting committee counsel Harold Leventhal feels the National Committee lacks authority to revise the apportionment of convention delegates—that only the convention itself can do this. But he said the National Committee might vote to revise the number of ; delegates, subject to approval of the 1956 convention. He added that the committee might decide to recommend a change for 1960, if not 1956, but made it'clear those concerned are interested in getting more people at the convention next year. Butler explained there were a variety of. ways to boost the delegate total—from merely increasing "bonus" delegates granted states which went Democratic in 1952 or elected Democratic governors, to doubling the total by "cutting all votes in half."
