John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts apparently failed today in an attempt to corral California's vital 81 votes on the first Democratic presidential ballot. Gov. Edmund G. Brown reportedly still was holding out against what was described as terrific pressure exerted by the Kennedy forces. They have been trying to persuade Brown to gh-e up his favorite son status in favor of Kennedy on the first countdown of the convention opening Monday. today and Friday in the low 80s. and by i Low tonight in the low 60s.

Major Blow This could be a major blow to Kennedy's hopes of steamrolling what promises to be a rip-roaring meeting of Democrats who sharpen then- knives for the Republicans by practicing on their fellow party members. William A. MunneU, Los Angeles attorney who is chairman of tite California State Central Committee, told a reporter he has been in close touch with the governor and: "I mink he'll take his first ballot vote." Asked about published reports that Brown already had passed the word mat he would release the California delegation prior to the start of the convention, Munnel said: "No, I haven't heard that." AB an indication that Brown finds something less than harmony within his spreadeagled delegation, Lt Gov. Glenn M. Anderson announced his support of Adlaij E. Stevenson. Will Be Released It was regarded as significant, however, that Anderson said he was making his announcement because "it is apparent that the California delegation will be released from its favorite son commitment! at a very early stage of the convention." It was no secret that the hopes of those opposing Kennedy for the nomination rested precariously on the belief that Brown and Gov. David L. Lawrence of Pennsylvania would hold out against a for the district, told the Telegraph today. On May 27 the Madison County Court had entered an order setting July 1 as the date on which the "additional assessment" was due.

Efforts were being made behind the scenes to head off a battle within the committee—and possibly the convention itself—over the issue / that has plagued recent Democratic conventions. Carl Rice, veteran Kansas Democratic leader and platform committee member, suggested that the party's 1956 civil rights plank be dusted off and revised in the ight of recent developments. He said it should carry a promise that a new Democratic president would provide more positive lead- •rship in this field than he said has been shown by President Eisenhower. The 1956 plank pledged the party ;o continuation of efforts to eradicate racial discrimination in all sections of the country, but re- ected proposals for use of federal 'orce to bring this about. Rep. Chester Bowles of Connecticut, platform chairman, said he probably would undertake drafting of a plank designed to placate both sides, insofar as that s possible. He has indicated, lowever, anything he writes ivould be more sweeping proposal than the 1956 plank. up f the Italian Red-Led Riots Threatening Civil War ewer walkout from the convention.

Nevertheless the foreign policy issue — described by Bowles as the most important one facing voters this year—was brought to the fore Wednesday by Americans for Democratic Action. Prof. Samuel H. Beer of Harvard University, national chairman of this group, called for a foreign policy that would give this country what he called a "relent- tinous Negro soldiers have held their white Belgian officers captive since Tuesday night. The situation at Thysville, 75 miles southwest of Leopoldville, was described as quiet. But there was no word on what would be done to satisfy demands of the soldiers, who want the white officers replaced by Congolese. less diplomatic initiative" in a drive to stabilize peace.
