Adla i Stevenson of Illinois. Let's look into the reasons for that confidence. First of all, we have to recognize that the Democratic lenders were cocky shout the 1952 outlook long before they had H candidate. That mood grew out of there things: 1—The conviction, supported by a considerable amount of statistical evidence, that the Democrats are Ute majority party in the United States. 2—The tremendous mlvnnUge accruing to the parly nominee from the big block of electoral voles he collects almost automatically from the Solid South. 3—The memory of 1048, when I'res- ident Truman won election despite defections by the Dixiecrats and Henry Wallace's followers. •I—The condition of national prosperity, a circumstance not usually displeasing (o the voters. Now thai they have a candidate, the Democrats are more jubilant than ever. In Stevenson they know they were getting a man iicccptnblc lo all wings of the party. That's one of the big reasons he was nominated. And posl-con- vention events have indicated there will tie no major defections this time. They felt, too. that they were selling: a man .salable to the electorate. And all the signs suggest they were also correct about that. Reluctant to lie a candidate, Slevcii- son has made himself a fighting nominee. He is doing everything he can to exploit the divisions within opposition Kepublican ranks. He is asserting his independence of Mi. Truman by word and action, trying thus to cut himself free of ties with Washington corruption. He is talking like a man dependent on no one, daring lo tell powerful groups like the American Legion that he will resist excessive demands from them or anyone else. None of this is by accident. Stevenson believe.", and so do many other (op Democrats, thai the cry "time for a change" is perhaps the biggest barrier to his election. They fear talk thai the party has been too long in power. That is why he is. stressing to the hilt the idea that his is a new face. As one aide put it, he is trying desperately to avoid making the "old noises" the standard candidate utters on the platform. So far his luck has been good. liu't been « hit wherever he'» gon«. The platform seems to be his natural habitat. Alarm that he mrjfhl'prove too "intellectual" for n , ass audiences has faded as he lias faced groups like the Legion with humor and case and carried the day. His nerve in hammering at pressure groups has evoked admiration even from the targe!s themselves. Democratic confidence is understandable. General Eisenhower clear!v hss Jiis work cut out for him. The Democratic house is -not going to be blown down with a few light puffs. counmn Views of Others Daddy And His Little Girl iTJie folloiUHg points t valuable lesson.
