Richard Russell has his first full slate at pledged delegates today, following the South Carolina State Democratic Convention. The convention yesterday pledged South Carolina's 16 national convention votes to Russell "for as long as his name is in nomination." A few blocks away, (lie GOE 3 Convention turned down specific endorsement of either Gen. Eisenhower or Sen. Taft. The Republicans elected six uniustructed delegates to the party's national convention. Gov. Jnmes P. Byrnes urged the Russell endorsement in his keynote speech to the convention. The Dem- ocrats agreed to recess, rather than adjourn, and meet again after both national parties have named tbetr presidential nominees. The States Rights maneuver leaves the door open for a split with the national party such as occurred in 1948, when J. Strom Thurmond, then governor, was the States Rights presidential candidate. Two of the GOP delegates came out flatly for Taft, but the other four are officially uncommitted. One, however, privately indicated his preference for Tafl and another said he "leans" towards Eisenhower. The convention turned dawn flatly a resolution terming Eisenhower "our best possibility for president."

Speaking at the weekly meeting : of the club in Hotel Noble, Dr. Smith told the Kiivanians to work with the attitude of "being the best in your field." have a love that is far reaching and "live from year to year."

Val Peterson commented it wasn't the governors who needed a pep talk on flood control—it was Congress. Sen. Hickenlooper (R-Ia) said he thought the. President's picture of the situation was such that it is certain to get the attention of Congress. Later, the governors agreed there was nothing in the way of new moves needed from them now.

Further downstream, both Wisconsin and Iowa points got set for expected record river heights. ON ANY ITEM IN OUR STOCK* * Except Fixed Price Items.
