Warns About Pre-co/ive/iffOfi Commitments WASHINGTON (AP) - National Chairman John M. Bailey is taking the lead in a strong movement among Democratic organization members to avoid pre-convention commitments to potential presidential nominees. If the movement spreads as indicated the Democrats could wind up in August with the kind of a wide-open convention politi- cans talk about but which seldom materializes. Bailey said in a telephone interview that since President Johnson took himself out of consideration he intends to remain "absolutely neutral" in the nomination contest. "I have a convention to run," he said, "and I am not going to take sides." Riiley indicated he expects to remain national chairman through the convention, after which the nominee usually picks his own nun. It is Bailey's stated intent to have the 41-vote Connecticut delegation, which presumably would have been behind Johnson, go to the Chicago convention uncommitted. He is state cliairman as well as national chairman. Indications are that Sens. Robert F. Kennedy, and Eugene J. McCarthy and Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey all will have strength in the delegation and it can be expected to break wide open at the convention. Only Kennedy and McCarthy have announced is candidates but Humphrey is poised to enter the race after Easter, Sn. Joseph S. Clark, D-Pa,, expects to lead a 130-vote Pennsylvania delegation to Chicago under an uncommitted banner. Clark, a candidate for re-election, previously had said he would support Johnson. Clark is keeping himself neutral in a contest in which the state Democratic organization leaders can be expected to urge delegate candidates previously backing Johnson to swing to Humphrey. Delegate candidates supporting McCarthy and Kennedy are running in the April 23 Pennsylvania primary and some probably will be elected.
