BOYLE'S COLUMN Donkey Men All Ears As Convention Nears End of Trading Period (Editor's note: Trellis MM Fee- Me, America's most average wife, fends thai crrry Is a king-maker In the following letter to her husband giving an inside v/ew* of (he donkey .serenade. ( CHICAGO bfi—Dear darling Wilbur, Well, honoy, the Defiiocrntic convention right now is like n barbershop quartet where everybody wants to sitig tenor. This Js the showdnwn day lo pick the presidential nominee, nrul there are still more candidates than there nre rielPgaics. If the convention charged each one a nominating fee, il could wipe out the national debt. ' The candidates are all so nervous ihey are trading each- other ulcers «-s well as delegates. Hut the one they are most angry t\l is Gov. Adlai Stevenson, the Illinois sphinx \vho won't say yes ant) can't say no. Stevenson Still Lead Adamant Artlai still seems to add up as the popular favorite, but a lot of Democrats are getting annoyed at his coyness. "I think Stevenson just confuses SHE SWIMS IN MINK—Elbyc Young. Washington. D. C., model, slinkcd In mink during n fall fashion preview netd tn the capita) during the heat w.-u-e. She decided a bathing suit under the fur cape was about as coo) a deal as she could devise this convention with a radio Rive- away program," said one delegate. "He will accept the nomination all right, but he figures if lie walls ii little longer he maybe also cnn ivm nn electric refrigerator, a new cnr and a. week's trip to Bermuda," . With balloting time so near, | everybody is as nervous as n cat in a ring pound. Tlio donkey rwii arc; till ears, listening to the rumors, . .rumors. . . rumors. . . f]y around like spnrrou'A )n « popcorn tjlorni. Hero nrc just n few, Wilbur, to show you how siJly rumors can be: 1. — "Tnft ins sent somft of his hrvst orRanir.nrs, here to uork lor Dick Russell." a. — "Tuft has set some o( his best organizers hero to disrupt the Hnrrimnn cani|)nl»n." 3. — "A Kelauver supporter col- Inpspd under the strain, sat down in a chair, and began to ulrum his slomach — under the delusion he TV as a Banjo." 4. — "Harry Truman !s working * oulja board in the White House .rylng to get it Lo tell him what candidate to back/' Somehow, dear, I think Alben Bfirklcy is lucky to be out of H nil — if ho really is. T saw him give his farewell speech Inst night, tind I will remember thai grant! old man nil my life, I want as me guest of Mr. Petrol, | Inal rich oIHonnire from Texas. , Ho Isn't n dubious delegate any • longer. They finally scaled him, ant) he said; "Well, It's about lime. That chair was getting moss on 11." Petrol Sheds a Tear When Vice President Uavkley finished bl& speech, there were tears In the eyes of everybody, Including Mr. Petrol, who said: "1 haven't Rushed like this since T lift my first oil well, Trellis Mae." But Wilbur, the tblnjf 1 liked best about the vcop was that, when lie was through and they culled his wile to the platform, the thing he said wns, 'How rtld 1 do, dear?' T know lie said It, because I cmild read his lips. And she Jwsl smiled and held bis hnnd up in n V-for-vlctory slfjiml. When the nvallon was over nt least and ho had shnkcti the hands of all the politicians who came up to sny goodbye, he Just stood qulolly thore [or n moment. He looked out pnsl the umvlng banners, up to tbn big signs Knylng. "Gl million jobs" and "twenty years of plenty." He looked at the portraits of Democratic chieftains — Jcffcrsnn, Jack-inn. Grovor Cleveland Wilson, to FtooscvcU, and Trtrninn: ; -" • '"> i . ^t. r ••• ' • -Lifetime In His EyVii '" He stood there all alone at the smmnH of his life, nmt. oh Wilbur, his llfotimn WBR in his eyes. He lifted his hnntis nnd shook, them (jrnvely to the four corners of tho great linll. Kko a solemn old Indian chief say!u« fnrewpll to the sun. nnd then lie turned and walked out of the light and Into the rinrk, Wilbur, It suddenly made me terribly homesick. Arc you nil right?
