Stevenson of Illinois has conic to the point of a -final decision tin whether he will make himself available for the Democratic presi- nonntvUion. If the 52-year-old novenior enters (he, he will be the most reluctant presidetuinl candidate the DP moo rats have seen in 20 years. But if he ROCS in, Sen. Estecl Ke- fnuvcr of Tennessee f Sen.

If he inns, it will be because lie has convinced himself in his own nvnd that foreign policy and the tva.-party .system may be at stake In the November vote. It 9an be said that the Illinois governor, who has had extensive experience in diplomacy as a State Department and United Nations of- ficial, vould he eager to enter the presidential lists if he felt the Re- pubticEUis were certain to nominate Sen. Robert A, Trift of Ohio. In that ca.'-c, he would be seeking the nomination—mid campaigning afterwards, if he got It—primarily on the i-ssne of full co-operation with other (rrc nations, He i.s not so keen, however, to en- f?nge Ki.senbower on tho International grounds because he apparently feels they think largely ullke.

Stevenson is reported to be one of the most acceptable of the Northern candidates to the Southern wing of the party. Southerners 1'iink he Is sympathetic to their race problems, even if he Is on the other side.
