6 Jane 28, 1948 M»i*n Cliy, GUbe-Giiette, M.i.n City, U. Wisconsin Democrats Boost Ike Madison, Wis., (U.R)—Some of Wisconsin's delegates to the democratic national convention appeared ready Monday to switch their support from President Truman to Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower if he decides to run. The state democratic convention ended in an uproar Sunday night when Martin Gedlen, Milwaukee lawyer, made a motion that the convention urge Eisenhower to allow his name to be entered as a candidate. The democrats, who had assembled to'draft a state platform, nearly had finished their business when Gedlen entered his motion. Delegates.burst into wild cheering and whistling. "We want Eisenhower," they chanted. But Chairman, Leland ,McParland, Cudahy, Wis., promptly ruled Gedlen's motion out of order on grounds that a motion to adjourn took precedence. McParland called for a vote on adjournment, but the convention was so noisy observers said it was impossible to tally the vote. When the. tumult tapered off, McParland declared the meeting adjourned. Immediately, he was surrounded by booing delegates. In the democratic primary last April, 27 delegates elected were pledged to President Truman. The 28 is unpledged but has indicated he would support Mr. Truman, too. But in view of Sunday night's Eisenhower demonstration, it-was believed at least some of the delegates would be willing to switch to Eisenhower. Jerome Fox, Chilton, Wis., chairman of the delegation, said its sentiment now is "fluid."
