Robert A. Tail oE Ohio, Gov. Earl Warren of California and former Gov. Harold E. Stasscn of Minnesota was drawing top* attention, Kefauver's one- man Democratic show was playing 1 to large Wisconsin crowds. Long Road Seen He told a crowd estimated at nearly 1,000 persons at Racine, last r.ight that it would be against the law for him to say whom he \vou!d have in his cabinet, adding that "I have a long road to go before I can discuss that." This was in response to a question as to whether he would retain Secretary of State Acheson.
