' • Same hall — all 255,000 square feel of floor space. Same occasional whiffs from the surrounding stockyards. Same mighly organ lhal roars until it rattles' Ihe fillings in your Icelh. Just like the Republicans Iwo weeks ago, Ihe Democrats nre backstage practicing . . . speechmakers clearing Iheir throats, polishing their fine phrases , . . Lady delegates, and some of the '"en, mugging and smirking in j^-fronl of mirrors, seeing how they'll look best on television. This is where we came in two weeks ago today — with one big difference. They've taken down Abraham Lincoln's picture and hung Harry Truman's in its place. Souvenirs, nuyune? They're all over (lie place, but not selling very briskly. Nol many delegates want lo shell out a dollar or more for an ashtray bearing the picture of a eaji- didate who may be only a dim memory before the week is over. About Ihe most popular gadget on sale is a big but light wooden sledge-hammer. It bears the slogan of Sen, Esles Kelailver: "Beat crirn« down." In (he Sdme pew, yeslerday n« Gen. Dwight D. Elsenhower did on the Sunday before the Republicans nominated him for President.

The 74-year-old "Veep" mapped a busy day to be climaxed by a trip out lo Convention Hall foi the night session. He is a delegate-at- large from Kentucky. Kefauver has his coonskin cap, too. but it's Sen. Robert Kerr of Oklahoma who has the log cabin— a full-size model of the one In which Kerr was born. You can see it in a corner of «he senator's big. bustling h e a d- iuarteiE on the mezzanine of the Conrad Hilloll Hotel. Added attraction: free coffee and doughnuts. Kerr and A v e r e 11 Harrlmau spend a lot of their time trying to live down their wealth. • Both regard money as a distinct handicap when it tomes to getting the Democralic presidential nomination. * It may be different next week, but today either one probably would give a million dollars not to be pointed to as a millionaire. Harriman was one of the last candidates to come down with presidential fever but it hit him hard. He's even sporting a campaign hat —.a broad-brimmed straw given lo him by Joe Judge Arizona Democratic stale chairman. Not quite the sort of head- Kear he'd have worn to garden parties when he was ambassador . to the court of St. James. Trend-spnttera take note, for any significance it may have: ^ Illinois Gov.
