They said he was " t o n , old," and Barkley took himself j out of the race. j Receive* Warm Greeting | There was a tremendous explo- ! sion of w a r m t h and sympathy and affection when the "Veep" marched down the platform onto the rostrum last night. The organ bc- jjan to play "My Old Kentucky ( Home" and rolling billows of mil- ; sic and cheering thundered through i the great hall. ! Barkley stood looking down at the demonstration, unsmiling, almost impassive. From t i m e tn time he waved and bowed, nck- nowledgins a tremendous salute. It went on for 24 minutes, constantly hitting new peaks of sound and excitement. Finally, they let him speak. Ho had no manuscript and the tele- nromptrr was b l a n k and Hark, j He said he had not had lime, 'since I received this invitation," to write a speech. He said, "I am not here as a Candidate for any office this con-1 vention can confer." In Ihc back j nf tbe hall, and in the galleries, a ! chorus welled up: "No -- No." The "Veep" shook his head. Review* Record As he spoke, reviewing the 211- year record of the Democrats, his voice bcflan to gather volume and momentum. He said; "I believe the programs of the Democratic party sive the srnat- est good to the fircatcst number of the American people and if T did not believe thai, I would join some other party t h a t Hoes believe in those eternal and immortal principles." The he turned In thr Rrmibli- cans, recalling t h a t Dwight D. Eisenhower, the GOP nominee, had said he was going to lead n crusade. \ "We are not beginning a cm- ; sade." Brakley shouted. "We arc , continuing a crusade -- a crusade · to sec to it that every child born j of woman should be born under j conditions m a k i n g it easy for him ; to live in a normal, wholesome j atmosphere, with n rhanro for education to prenare himself for the burdens and responsibilities of life. The administrations nf Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman have given the American ' people a greater share in the en- i joyment of the f r u i t of their 3a- f bor t h a n anv other administra- j lions in the history of the United States." Renurkft On Wars He then turned to foreign policy. He reviewed the events between the two world wars, and the period t h a t followed. He said American* .were drawn "unavoidably" into the two great conflicts. The Republicans have called the Democrats "a war party" because there were Democratic presidents in office in 1917, 1941, and 1950 when American troops went to war, he said. Barkley beat the air with his big fists and leaned forward, press- j ing against the shelf of trie ros- ' tnirn when he cried: "When our Republicans say that under Democratic administrations there have been two uroat world wars, I ask them to tell the American people what they would have done if they had been in power j on December 7, 1941, when Pearl i Harbor was attacked by the armies I of Japan." And he went on to say that American troops are in Korea today because "we pledged our word in San Francisco that as members' of the United Nations we would come to the defense of any member nations under attack anywhere in the world." Refers To Korean Trip Then, the man they said was "too old" referred to his age. He said he spent his birthday last year in Korea. "It was the best birthday I have ever h;ui, hut it is not the last one ! w i l l ever have by a number of years." His whole speech was a kind of keynote address. It listed what he called the achievement of the Democrats, and defended what many analysts believe may be the party's most vulnerable points -Korea, the United Nations, and foreign relations. When it was over, the demonstration was even greater than the one that preceded Berkley's speech. The ovation went on and on. It was a moment -- a moncnt that lasted more than a h a l f - h o u r -- of complete I r i u m n h for the man who was "too old" to be the choice of his party. When, in 1855. the U.S. Army tried camel trains for transport t ir New Mexico it was found the a n i m a l s could not work well there because the rocky terrain ruined their feet.
