When Stevenson finally was able to make his way through the surging mass of people, he shook hands with Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago and engaged in a lengthy conversation with him.

The Illinois delegation hasn't held any get-together since Sunday's caucus, leaving the members free to enjoy the California weather and take some sightseeing trips. Two Springfield delegates—V. Y. Dallman and Roscoe Bonjean— attended a reception Tuesday given by J. Edward Day, who served as state insurance director when Stevenson was governor. Day, an insurance executive here, is a Kennedy delegate from California. At today's convention session, the state delegation is expected to take another vote on the presidential candidates. The prospects point to Kennedy increasing his Sfl'-ii vote total by at least two or three votes. Former Gov.
