PLYTHEVILLE <ARX.) COURIER iATURDAY, JULY M, i*M Stevenson: Rarely Have Democrats Nominated Men Who Didn't Want Job (Editor's Note: This M Ihe first oJ a flve-pirt scries on the We of Adlftt E. Stevenson of Illinois, IJem- ocr»Mc nominee for president. The writer Is Koger F. Lane, Associated Press staff writer In the «Ute capital, Springfield.) By ROCKR F. I.ANE (Advance) SPRINGFIELD, HI,, Wl—In choosing Adlnl Ewlng Stevenson, Democrats bestowed their presidential nomination on n man who many times said he didn't want It. Rarely has a national political convention given Its top honor to a truly reluctant candidate. That this was done In Chicago lends credence to a. handful of prophets who all along have seen the balding, 52-year-old governor of Illinois as « kind of prairie Roosevelt, a man of destiny. He has statesmanlike qualities— an incisive mind, vision, courage, eloquence nnd great powers of conciliation. He has sex appeal, too, this man of the rich, intimate voice tinged with an Ivy League accent. It is primarily his radio personality— attractive on TV as well- that evokes comparison with the Inte FDR. His aristocratic background and personal charm arc other points of resemblance. Stevenson makes a pleasant but not a striking appearance. He is 6 feet 9 Inches tall, weiglu 180 pounds and bulges a bit at the middle despite occasional tennis and golf. His brown hair has thinned and leceded. heightening a freckled forehead. His noso Is slightly bent. Blue eyes that twinkle and a broad, mobile mouth often broken In n smile are his most appealing features. He dresses conservatively but not stuffily. He likes to wear n brown tweed sports jacket, odd trousers and striped shirts at his olfice in the executive mansion. On the hottest days, h» removes his tie, peels otf his coat nnd unbuttons hlB collar. What, then, propelled this man of rather ordinary looks nnd VmbUs to the treahhold of the highest office In the land? 1MB Win Wai nig The biggest single Impetus was ttie smashing 1018 political victory that vaulted Stevenson Into the governor's chair of the country's fourth larflest state In his first bid for elective office. He won by 572.000 votes, an Illinois record. But back of that was an impres elve trouble shooting career in fed eral appointive posts nnd one o those significant incidents tha loom large when history la written. In 1943, Stevenson was In Italy as head of a politico-economic mission by appointment of President Roosevelt. The ravages of World War n, still raging, were on every hand. Reading Stare and Stripes, the ' TJ. S. Army newspaper, his feelings ^•ere stirred one day by n story about a public opinion poll In the United States. Not in Public Life Seven of 10 parents polled said called for a "government eonse- crntcd lo plain talk, hard worlc and prairie horse sense." As a political novice, Stevenson had comparatively few strong par- ly ties and Installed Republicans in some key positions. The major achievements of his administration were voted by one legislature controlled by Republicans in both branches, and a second under divided Republican- Dctnocratic control. I'olUlc.s Kuns In Family Politics runs in Stevenson's family. His great-grandfather was Jesse W. Fell. Illinois pioneer, abolitionist and a close friend and backer of Abraham Lincoln for irestdent. His paternal grandfather was Ice president of the United Slates from 1893 to 1887 under Grover Cleveland. His father was an Illinois secretary of stale. This heritage also accounts for keen sense of public duty in Adlnl, whose given name comes from the 51d Testament and is thought to ncan "The Just." (Adlal Is pro lounccd "ad-lay," with the accent in the first syllable.) Although reared in the heart o he Illinois corn country, Stevenson was horn in California. The date wns Feb. 5, 1900. His birth came during a brief stay of his family Blytheville Man Killed by Train At Coloma, Mich. Word was received today of the death of Howard B. Sawyers, 31, of Blytheville, who was killed at Coloma, Mich., Sunday when he vas struck by a train while walk- ilf along a railroad track. The son of Mrs. Huby Sawyers of Blytheville, he had been a resident of Blytheville for the past 20 years. Services were conducted Tuesday at Coloma with burial there. Survivors Include his mother; five brothers, James. Paul, Kay, Billy and Robert; nnd a sister, Mrs. Louise Abies. He was a veteran of World War II. The family Shah Receives New Cabinet TEHRAN, Iran (IT) — Premier Mohammel Mossadegh presented his new cabinet to the Shah today retaining for himself the key post of minister of war. The post gives hiin life and death control over the armed forces nnd the final decision on maintaining a U. S. military mission, on Iranian soil. The nKed nnd ailing premier now wields more power thnn ever before. He had resigned July 10 when Shnh Mohammed ROM Pahlevi refused to appoint him to head the war ministry.

George Hearst, had been n Washington friend of the first Adlal E. Stevenson when he wns vice President. From this employment .cwls Stevenson went lo Los An- .jeles. young Adlal's birthplace, as assistant business manager of the Examiner. The newspaper wns a properly ol the late William Randolph Hearst, famed publisher and n son of the senator. The family migrated bnok to Its seat, BioominKton, III., within Ihe year. While his fnlher irmnaged farms, young Adlnl grew to boyhood, He had one sister, Elizabeth, who was two years older, and no brothers. During those years. Adlal acquired a reputation for good deportment. He developed into serious, sensitive Ind. His mother, Helen Davis Stevenson,, gave him lessons In their large, comfortable home until Ad- lal was nine.

He made it clenr he wasn't talking about shoddy, even corrupt ward practices on election day, or blind, vengeful parllsanship. People nre "sick nnd tired" of old fashioned political fencing, he says, nnd don't cnre much nuoul party labels.

Averell Harri man of New Yorlc had withdrawn keynoted his own campaign in his acceptance speech early today. "More important than winning the election Is govcring the tion," lie toid the Democrats so! einnly. "That is the test of a pollti cal party—the acid, final test, 'When the lunniU and the shout ing die, when the bands ore gene and the lights are dimmed, ther is the slurk reality of responsihi !ty in' an hour haunted by thos yaunt, ^ilm specters of strife, di.s srm.slon and materialism at horn nnd ruthless, inscrutable and hos tile power abroad-" Assert in^ that the "bloodies most turbulent a«e ol the Chrlstin era is far from over, Stevenso declared: "Sacrifice, patience, undersiani Ing and implacable purpose ma be our lot for years to come. Let face it. Let's talk sense to t: American people." Glowing Promises Omitted It was not the IIMKII recital Klo'.ving promises of the futu and laudatory references to t party's past record expected fro most nominees. Stevenson said he expects t Republicans will call the Den crats nppeasers, the war party, | reactionary and socialistic. But lie | ^' said he Is not worried about GOP cries of "throw the rascals out." "I am not too much concerned with partisan denunciation, epithets and abuse." he said, "because the working m->n, the farmer, (he thoughtful business man, all know they are better off than ever before ..." The nominee praised the Demo- cats for threshing out their convention differences "without calling each other liars and thieves" us he saiil the Republicans had tione in proving here two weeks ago that their party was "brutally nlive." Without naming the general directly, Stevenson said Eisenhower is "a leader whom we all respect but who Ims been c:^led upon to minister to a helpless case of political schizophrenia (spHt personality)" in attempting 'to hold the Republican party together. Sen. A. S. (Mike) Monroney of Oklahoma, not nn original Stevenson booster, told reporters he believed it was "the greatest nccept- nnce sneceh ever given." Monroney said he thought Stevenson hac "the Roosevelt touch."

Applauding the choice of Slevenson, whom he helped along toward the nomination by getting Harriman to withdraw, Truman said he is going to "take my coat off nnd do everything I can" to help him.

" Balloting la Painful Stevenson's nomination climax ed a day of slow and pairifu Balloting during which Kefauver' fortunes rose only to crash to earth in an after-recess third ballot last night. Kefauver, who called himself the peoples choice because he won most of the Democratic primaries, rolled to a high tide mark of 362V^ votes on the second ballot. At that point, Stevenson had reached 324',& votes, Russell had 294 and Harriman brought up the rear with 121. A two-hour recess gave Truman Jacob M. Arvey, Illinois national commUteeinan, and some other Stevenson backers time to bring up their heavy guns. Harriman went out of the race and broke open tha New York delegation. That started things.
