A continuous "twist" party was in progress from 7 to 10:30 p.m. Thursday in the fourth floor corridor of the Claypool hotel to the tunes of a juke box provided by the Edwards for Senator group. The on: ly time the corridor was passable was during the brief periods the records were changing, Another, big difference between the GOP and Demo conventions was noted at the State House.

Hecent revelations of corruption in Lake county apparently haven't dried up the river of political funds that flows from unseen sources there. The Lake county Democratic headquarters in the Claypool served free sandwiches, peanuts, and drinks of all.kinds to convention goers. Delegates filled their pockets, plates, and cups from the two bushel sacks of peanuts in the two-room suite. Delegates were surprised at the unexplained absence of Judge Jack Murray, candidate for con gress, from the second district caucus session, although it was possible that he didn't know the caucus site had been changed from the State' Office Building to the basement of the Indiana Stale Teachers Association building. Mrs. Katie Wolf, of Reynolds, White county vice-chairman, said she is convinced that Murray can defeat House Minority Leader Charles Halleck this year.
