And to Mrs. Tnfl it Is indeed an ordeal, for she suffered a paralytic .stroke two years ngo. In years past she campaigned from the speaker's platform fir her husband in two of his three successful races for the Senate and in two of his unsuccessful bids for the Republican Presidential nomination. Now she has to campaign from a wheel chair. But fortunately her right hand— her hand-shaking hand — is unaffected nnd her large brown eyes have their old-time sparkle. ' 'M £i rtha Ta ft is a worn a ti of great courage," commented Rep. Krancrifi Holt on of Ohio as ^ihc watched Mrs. Taft receive long lines of guests at a big reception night, Her husband stood be- de her. polished lo Gen, Sen. Robert A. Tall of Ohio. They are the top contenders in the bllter battle for the Republican presidential nomination. The battle quickens today wllh (he j opening of the GOP convention. I Sen. Eugene D/'Millikin of Colo- 1 rado, Platform Committee chair- , man, continued to push a special drafting staff day and night behind closed doors and amid closely guarded secrecy. He wants no premature leaks. Nevertheless, oiher in the global effort for mutual security against Communist aggression should keep Eisenhower forces happy. Similar treatment was reported by subgroups on the touchy questions of government farm price programs and labor-management relations. Initial reports from the farm plank group indicated movement away from rigid government price supports and strong federal controls. Then Congress put Its approval on a firm level of relatively high farm price props. The GOP plank was shaped to back "reasonable"' supports. The labor plank now urges s union - management conference af ler the November elections. Tha is an invitation to both business nnd union leaders to elect Repub licans and then present iheir rte mands. members of closed tha t committee dis- civil rights plank needed to be hammered into the only "She was determined lo come to j e convention — determined to I me lo the reception." said Mrs. | avrah Wunder of Cincinnati, long- ne friend of the 'rafts and now r.s.

Mrs. Wunder went shopping he- ore they left Washington nnd ound a flame-colored chiffon (or I er, n .shade especially becoming 3 a brunette. At another hotel n few blocks way, Mrs. Eisenhower, also bo- ide her husband, went through a nammoth-handshaking event. Mamie Elsenhower enjoyed it — :vcn though her right hand Rot n lit red and she confessed laugh- ugly that her feet got tired. She had the fun of hearing a song written especially for her by Jimmy Dodd of Lo.s Angeles and mtitled "Miunie." It was sung for he first time nl the reception, by he glee club from Purdue University In Lafayette, Ind. Then someone gave Gen. Eisenhower n. copy and urged him to sing too. He put on his glasses nnd. turning toward his wife, sung with the glee club nnd spectators; "Mamie, what a wonderful nnim is Mamie, "In her heart hums a flaine [01 the man that she loves, and he: family, too."

A subcommittee led by Mrs. Mildred Younger, attractive, youtlilul delegate from California, split 4 to 2 upon what Republicans should propose. All six opposed a compulsory federal program or commission to halt racial and minority discriminations. ' But Mrs. Younger and three members suggested a voluntary federal commission with power to Investigate state and local conditions In this field and make recommendations. This was expected to appeal to Negroes and other minority groups. Two coin mil teemen insisted the federal government should leave such matters to slate and local action. Mltllkin. n paiienl and persua- ivc advocate of party harmony, expected to whittle out a snt- sfactory compromise before the ilank was handed to the conven- ion and made public. Evidence of this came yesterday as Miltikin emerged from private conference with Eisenhow- during- which foreign policy plank proposals undoubtedly were discussed. Beaming broadly, Millikin, who openly backed Taft in party primaries, told newsmen he is confident nil GOP presidential aspirants will favor the committee's proposals. The senator refused lo pass out copies of the proposed foreign policy plank to commitlcemcn. It was learned, however, that either Taft or Eisenhower, who have collided publicly upon international onct defense issues, could stand on the platform. .References lo "tragic mistakes" and a "Chlnn-laM" policy : by the T r u m a n.
