Julv 2 (JFj--Gover- nor Lac* reteoed today without comment a report rf the Hancock committee warning the Maryland Veterans Commission to stay out of "the internal politics" of vet- eracu groups. State Service Officer Richard C. Iftnyiipf "used very poor judgment in singling out" American Legion contentions to attend at State expense, the special investigating unit sa!CL The State service officer "should not become overly engaged in the internal politics of veterans organizations nor should he use the facilities of the Maryland Veterans ·Cosamissioa for this purpose." the Hancock ccrnauitee advised. la a reply to the Governor, the Veterans Commission said it had already resolved Jane 4 that em- ployes "shall cot take such an active part in the political activities of any veterans organization as will or "might incur the earaiiy or ill will of any veteran." Chairman Joseph A. Cantrel said the commission also resolved that in the future travel funds to attend veterans organization meetings would be "strictly prohibited ualass and until the same may be formally authorized by resolution of this commission."

THE DRUID THEATER DAMASCUS. MARYLAND Damascus 2171 SATURDAY, JULY 3rd Lash L* Rue A Al St. John "StaicToMesaCitv" 54 Democratic Votes Going To Eisenhower By the Ascoclated PTcw Democratic conventions in two Southern States threw a total ol 54 national convention votes to Oen. Dwight 0. Eisenhower yesterday. The two actioas were the most positive to date in a revived movement to draft General Ike for the party's Presidential nomination and "ditch" President Truman, The General was standing silent on tus January declaration that he can't accept a. nominasion. Georgia Democrats unanimously instructed their 23 delegates to do all they can to make Eisenhower the standard-Dearer. The Virginia convention told iti. 26 delegates'only a few nours later to work for Eisenhower's normiia- tion--and against the naming of anyone proposing a federal civil rights program. Mr. Truman has. proposea one. touching off a South- em Democratic revolt against hin: Georgia and Virginia were the last Uvo state* to p:ck delegate! 5o the convention, v. htch begins a; Philadelphia July !". Truman Has 286 Of the 1.23-j delegate.* rsoiv chosen. 286 are pledged or instructed to vote for Mr. Tmraan. another 390 are claimed .for the President and 414 are uncommitted Of the remainder. 54 »ow are instructed for Eisenhower. 53 '·* are anti-Truman but not committed elsewhere. 20 are pledRed to Governor Thurmond of South Carolina and 11'3 arc pledged to Governor Wright of Mi^ihMppi. President Truman'.s supporters | say he is assured of many more ; than the 618 votes needed for the ! nomination. But those out to [ "ditch" the President say he can't j even be sure of all those pledged \ to vote for him. And James Roosevelt, son of ' Franklin D. Roosevelt, was report, ed to have called a meeting of pro- 1 Eisenhower forces in Philadelphia i July 10--txvo days before the Democratic national convention opens in that same city. Would Stampede Convention Word of the Philadelphia meeting came from Jacob M. Arvey. : Chicago Democratic leader who 1 said yesterday that Eisenhower's name could stampede the convention if it came before fhe delegates. I This new draft-Ike drive gained i headway just 24 hours after Mr. ; Truman said confidently that he himself would be the Democratic i nominee--and declined to talk about the Eisenhower question. But friends of Mr. Truman were known to be concealed about the General's plans, and to be hopinc that he would i-sue a new statement declaring himself positively out of the running. The President's old friend George E. Allen went calling on the Eisen- howers in New York. Georgia's delegation was the first one specifically ordered to cast Us ballots for Eisenhower. Mention of fhe General's name brought an ovation at the Georgia State Democratic convention in Macon. It did. too, at the Virginia State convention in Richmond. Snfp*rt«* By Byr* There Senator Byrd told the delegates that Eisenhower's name is resounding through the Democratic ranks. "I hope the Virginia delegates to the national convention will cast their votes for Eisenhower," Byrd said. So far. friends and associates of Eisenhower mereiy have repeated over and over that bis position is unchanged since he wrote a Kew Hampshire newspaper publisher last January 23 that he is not available and "could not accept nomination." But the pro-Ike people say the General left a loophole by asserting that a military man shouldn't seek office ""in the absence of some obvious and overriding reason." Senator J Howard McGrath of Rhode Island, national Democratic chairman, told a reporter the White House has done nothing to persuade the General to produce" a stronger statement than that of January 23. McGrath made his statement when aked about a Washington «:ory in the Si Louis Post Dispatch This story said that there was a ir.eetine of the "kitchen cabinet" at the White House Wednesday. It aid there was a decision to have Georze E Allen ask the General to set out of the nomination :crap "flatly :-nd irrevocably " Charitable Bequests In W. A.
