Steel 79 3-8 Should the Socialist decline, former Premier Rene Mayer Was expected to be Coty's next choice. It was Mayer's split with Premier Pierre Mendes-Prance, like him leader of the Radical Socialist (moderate) party, which caused the overthrow of the Mendes- France • government on a vote of confidence Feb. 5. Pineau was the third man called on to help solve Prance's latest Cabinet crisis, now in its 10th day. Former Premier Antoine Pinay, a conservative, failed first in the search for National Assembly support. Liltle Doubt There was considerable doubt that Pineau would accept the President's request. The Socialists have refused to participate in recent cabinets, although they voted solidly for Mendes-France. This was expected to work against any attempt of the party to secure the necessary outside support. Former Bank Clerk Pflimlin went to Elysee Palace before dawn today to tell Coty he could not line up enough Assembly backing. The President summoned Pineau soon after. Pineau is a 50-year-old former bank clerk, lawyer, labor secretary and wartime resistance leader who was arrested twice by the Nazis. Released from prison camp in 1945, he became food minister hi Gen. Charles de Gaulle's postliberation provisional government. He was elected to the Assembly in 1D45 and later served as public works minister in four governments and fi nance minister in one. With the rest of the socialists, he supported Mendes-France in pushing through the Assembly the Paris treaties approving German rearmament. Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS. 111.

Chung plans to confer with Chinese Nationalist President Chiang Democrats Set Date for 7956 Convent/on WASHINGTON Ifl — The Demo crats today set July 23 as the date for their 1956 convention to open in Chicago unless some states change their laws meantime to permit later opening date. National Chairman Paul M. Butler announced that a study of state election statutes showed it would be impractical to hold up the convention until Aug. 13, as tentatively planned earlier. Some states, he explained,' require certification ol the presidential candidates anywhere from 70 to 90 days before election day. Butler said reaction to the idea of a late convention date and shorter campaign had been favorable and that he was suggesting to Democratic leaders that they study the possibility of changes in state laws which stand as a barrier to this. He expressed hope Republican leaders would join with the Democrats in a move to make later conventions possible. Butler also announced that members of the Democratic National Committee in a mail poll had formally approved Chicago as the site of the 1956 convention. A site committee had recommended Chicago.

Sought Commitment Newsmen were unable to ask him about the statement credited to Foreign Minister George Yeh in the United States to the effect that United States was pledged to the defense of Quemoy and Matsu. Yeh later said he had been misquoted. Chiang: had sought, in negotiations leading up to the evacuation of the Tachens, to obtain a public American commitment to help defend Quemoy and Matsu, a commitment Washington refused to make. Chiang: today denounced United Nations' and other efforts to obtain a ceasefire with the Communists in the Formosa Strait area. The U.N., he said, ought to be declaring sanctions against Communist China. He said the "people and government of the Republic of China are determined to recover" all lost territory. "Kinmen and Matsu constitute parts of the bastion where our people and government are withstanding the aggression of the international Communist bloc. In no case would they be abandoned to the enemy," he concluded. The U.S. Navy today said Its ships were returning to patrol stations after moving 27,500 people from the Tachen area.
