(AP Wlrephoto) Bv JACK BELL i LOS ANGELES (AP^ — Pre- convention shakedou, ns pointed to-; day toward the powerful Pcnnsyl-i vama and California delegations as potential kingmakers in the Democrats' selection of a presidential nominee. Out of the din of conflicting | claims from supporters of tin : leading candidates there appeared to be emerging a general conviction among the party pros that if the two big—and nominally uncommitted—slates go for the same candidate they can just about call the turn on the nomination. But there was no assurance, as platform committee sessions continued preliminary to the opening of the convention Monday, that the two stales would cast even a majority of the SI votes each holds for' the same candidate. Gov. Edmund G. (Pat) Brown of California was reported leaning toward Sen..John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts. Informed labor union sources were betting that Governor David L.

They conceded that overtaking ihc pace-setting Sen. John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts represent^ n hrge-sized order.

The Kennedy drive, Chapman said, "has none about as far as it can no." adding that this is .'short <>l the 7(i) votes necessary ;lo win the nomination.
