Mitchell, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, also reported progress in healing the North-South differences within the party and said the meeting; would not act on the pledge.

The three, members of a B26 crew shot down in February, 1952, were Capt. Byron A. Dobbs, 33, of Clio, Mich.; Lt. James L. Stanley, 24, of Decatur, Ga.: and S. Sgt. Richard Abbott of Wellsvllle, N. Y. They said that for announced he would not attend the Chicago meeting. Douglas did not rule out the possibility that some Southerners who do attend may themselves bring up the future of the "loyalty pledge." If they do, he said, "It is highly important that the people know ,what all the shouting Is about." Douglas in an Interview denied that Northern Democrats ever had asked delegates to national conventions "to agree in advance to support candidates or platforms that had not been agreed upon." "That would be highly improp- r," he said. No Pledge Mitchell said the Chicago meeting Is not a convention and therefore will not deal with the pledge. He said he did not .think the meeting would miss Byrnes and that, while some other Southern Democrats were staying away, "There is no trend when four or live don't attend." The 1352 Democratic convention got Into a roaring fight over proposed loyalty rules. Sponsors said they were designed merely to prevent a repetition of the 1948 situation In which some Southern state ballots listed "states rights" candidates, rather than those chosen by the national Democratic convention, as the Democratic candidate/;. Some Southerners, however, served notice they would resist any effort to bind them in advance to inuj ooiv. v..i*u .w. about six support candidates and platforms mlnths they were kicked, slapped, i s mi t 0 tie selected, stripped naked and forced to stand To Gct Us i e a ripp under driving rain, thrown into , holes and sometimes deprived of food and water. Stanley was sentenced to death and actually placed before a Chinese firing squad but he still refused to "confess" to germ warfare. The three airmen and Dobbs criticized American pilots who allegedly broke down under torture and made germ warfare "confessions." Army Lt. Col. Robert N. Abbott. 38, of Rochester, N. Y., who was freed Saturday, said 00 out of 100 men who signed Communist propaganda statements did so to save their lives. Abbott said he never signed any statements nor dirt he make broadcasts but he thought the Reds could "break any man" if they made up their minds to do so. Bloomers Blooming BEVERLY HILLS. Calif.

LIQUOR The rule finally adopted merely required delegates to pledge their aid In getting the convention's i nominees on their states' ballots under the Democratic party label. And, so far as the 1952 convention was concerned, delegates were to be excused from the pledge If it ran counter to state laws or party rules. Some delegates from Virginia, South Carolina and Louisiana refused to be bound even by this pledge and were nevertheless seated. Douglas said that the only question ever involved was that of delegates using their moral influence to have the national party candidates listed on ballots of all states as Democrats. '.'All this does is assure that voters In each state at least have a chance to vote for the choices ol the Democratic party." he said. 47's Hop Atlantic TAMPA, Fla.

Old Practice One lawmaker with military experience said the situation was ticklish because: "The veterans who have been in the services and have hair on their chests, think the men can handle their liquor. And the church women and similar groups are fighting any sales of liquor, or even beer." Unofficially, high military officials summed up the philosophy of the new system this way: "Some of the men are going to drink anyway so we might as well make it possible—and attractive—for them to do it where we can keep -on eye on them and make them behave themselves."
