The choice, not officially confirmed, reportedly was made after the stop-Truman movement fizzled ' on Eisenhower's statement and New Healers tried lo start it again with i a IXniglas-ior-president bandwag- ' on. Some of the President's supporters feared the choice might be used by the New Dealers to stoke their Douglas bandwagon and would he oliensive to Southern democrats, who already have broken with Mr. ; Truman on the civil rights issue. But Henderson knows he is liclv- ed whether Douglas is placed i,i the nomination or not. He told questioners here the ADA board of directors would meet Aug. 1 if Mr. Truman is nominated to decide what to do. Henderson would not say whether ADA would support the Republican Dewey-Warren ticket. He said .however that ADA would not support the Communist-sparked candidacy or Henry A. Wallace, former sweetheart of the New Deal group. The Pacilic Coast rebellion against Mr. Truman's nomination be^an to crumple today with arrival of James Roosevelt and the California convention delegation. Roosevelt said he was convinced now that Ike would not accept the nomination. "So far as I know the caucus scheduled for tonight is off," Roose- Tall buildings have a wlnd-swayvclt told questioners at the railroad of approximately one and one-halfstation. inches. Roosevelt refused to say whether he or the California delegation would support Douglas for president, explaining that he wanted to meet first with the delegation this afternoon. John P. Shelley, California delegation chairman, said many delegates felt the California election law required tliein to vote for Mr. Truman on the first ballot but that they would do .so without enthusiasm. Platform Battle Looms All that remains for this convention which hna not yet met, la to nominate a vice president and com)»se party differences on the platform—which Ls enough. The platform battle promises to be loud and further destructive of uarty harmony. The South rejects Mr. Truman's civil rights program to protect Negro and other minority groups. Northern Democrats feel that must have something of that kind in the platform if they are lo have a chance against the RepubUjiL- cans in November. rf Sen. Joseph C.
