THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·T DREW PtAMOM Chicago-- There were nome tense momenli during the Democrats' battle* over the loyalty oath and the seating of the Southern delegates. Bllterent of »ll w»« South Cnrolln«'« Cov. Jlmmle Hymen who »1 ilmen trembled with r»(e. More modente leaden »mon« the Southern dele- Hies maneuvered to keep him off the rostrum. Almost equally bitter wai Sen. Harry Byrd of Virxlnla. Instead, the more moderate Southern leaders carefully selected as spokesmen Senators John Stennls of Mississippi, Spessard Holland of Florirla and Olin Johnston of South Carolina, They knew that if the South really did bolt the convention, Southern senators would lose their prize positions as chairmen of the key committees of Connress -- places which have given the South tremenri.ius power in writln« lejislatlon, and blockin» it. Almost every key rommittee in both houses of congress today Is headed by a Southern Democrat. Most paradoxical development of the entire loyalty-oath fight was Ihe fact t h a t Sen. Walter Georne of Oeorsia turned out to be the author ot one part of the oath to which the South objected. George said he would have no objection to some such phraseology as "every American wants to subscribe to ihe principle of majority rule," and. second, that "every delesale subscribing to (his plodce aoroes tn vote for the nominee of this convention." Young Franklin Ronsevell. when h* read the latter pledge to vote for (he. nominee of the convention remarked: "I don't think we can tell every delegate who they should vote for." However, this part of the oalh, having been proposed by a distinguished leader of the South, was left in. When Gov. Allan Shivers of Texas saw it, however, he objected: "I can take the oath." he s«ld, "If you omit this section" -- referring to the second part of Senator George's proposal. Its omission was immediately agreed to. During the private discussions over seating of the Southern delegates, Sen. Earle Clements was the roughest of all Southerners. Sore ovrr Vice President Berkley's retirement from the race, he used caustic, bllter language toward ynung ftoosevelt and others. "At least my family for generations has voted the Democratic ticket." he said, referring to Elliott Roosevelt's deviation to the GOP. Olhcr committee members retailer! that no one in years had done so much for the party as the man who happened to be Elliott's father. * * * How much money was put up for the expenses of delegates or buying delegates seldom leaks out during a national convention. At this convention there probably was relatively little, due in part to an advance expose of Sen. Robert S. Kerr's mysterious emissary from Kansas, state Sen. Boh George. He was the man who turned up In California and bought $1,600 worth of free railroad tickets to Chicago, which he tried to hand out to the California delegation, all of them pledged to Kefauver. Only two California delegates accepted free travel. George's hand also was apparent In Idaho, where, Mrs. Lnvera Swope. one of that state's delegates, received $500 by mail. However, when Ira Masters, also of Idaho, got wind of It. he protested to state Senator George, who In turn sent a telegram to Mrs. Swope, with a copy to Masters. Apparently, George misunderstood Masters' motive because the telegram read: "Re- aarding that $.100 give J250 to Masters." Later, when Senator Kerr met with the Idaho delegation he apologised for the incident. State Senator George's heart Is in the right place, he aaid, but he shouldn't have done it. Reports of Kerr's money being used to pay expenses of delegates was on the minds of various delegates. For instance, H. S. Dole, a delegate from Kansas, who wanted to vote for Kerr, announced In a caucus that he was not going to do so. "I want people to know that ! paid my own way to Chicago, ' Dole explained. * * * Deals, and sometimes double-deals were he- Ing marie and unmade during the hectic closing days of Ihe convention. At one time Governor Stevenson's backers had offered ihr vice presidency to four different people, even though their man allegedly was not a candidate. 1. Gov. Mennen Williams of MichiRan and Sen. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota were asked t" linn up Kefauver to run as VP on the Stevenson lickct: 2. Sen. John Spurkman of Alabama was sounded out on becoming VP for Stevenson; .1. Jonathan Daniels of North Carolina was discreetly approached as VP; 4. Vet word from Stevenson was that he personally preferred Sen. Rill Fulbright of Arkansas. Kefaiiver people, meanwhile, did n lillle dralinc o( I h f i r own.

The question was whether the preponderant majority would prevail or whether it would be split and the party control captured by a faction. The will of one. Yet it had t» be made with the blessing and food will of Mr. Truman. During Wednesday It w a s known that Mr. Truman had accepted Stevenson as the choice of the preponderant majority, and that he was recognizing the real- he preponderant majority has ily of the chang* of leadership een plain from the outset, (t has L ' " "-' ·-·- been for Stevenson and for party unity and a probable victory on he basis of moderate policies. which this must bring with it.

So nad to he worked out before th* they turned the convention into a nmi w a « flBmrorl frt- , U i n ~ ~ l . . . .«.* n*lu Q oad was cleared for this major- ty. First, there was a factional movement which in theory would avp revolutionized the party. It vould have ruptured the historic nd heterogeneous coalition in or- er to experiment with the no- ion--entirely alien to American olitics--of a party with an au- horitative program that can be nfnrced upon its adherents by le centra! direction and managc- ent of the party. j gigantic campaign meeting for the benefit of the television and radio audience. The occasion was the tribute of affection, which is immense everywhere, for the vice president. With him as the central figure, and with Rayburn, who is also greatly liked, as the master of ceremonies, the old hands of the party, old masters in the art of political warfare, organized a political spectacle. They used it to put on full display Had this maneuver not been so their conception of the coming might i campaign and where lies the hviously half-baked. ave been necessary tn take ery seriously. But one can judge ... ow half-baked it was by the pectacle of politicians, proclaiming themselves the champions of minorities, crying out that there must be no limitation on what they declared, quite thoughtlecs- and falsely, to be the great n i campaign ana wnere lies the it strength of the Democratic party. It lies, they were saying, in the fact that after 20 years of reform there is now a big popular majority with vested interests to defend. The campaign song which they brought out Wednesday evening. "Don't Let Them Take It Away," says it all quite simply American principle of majority i and directly. The Democrats made. rule. They had for the moment forgotten entirely that nil the £; rights of minorities depend upon the great American principle 1ii»i no kind of rule--including majority rule--shall be unlimited. Few if any of the leaders of the maneuver intended, i am sure, to be taken that seriouslv. were playing politics and The they it very plain that they mean to make Iheir basic appeal not to the spirit of innovation and progress, hut to the conservative instinct to hold on to hard-won and recently- acquired gains. This is an unusual position for a party which has drawn its main strength from the wage- earners in the cities and from the , F. n. Ronsevell. Jr.. for vice president, in return for swinging the Harriman forces behind Kefauver. Simultaneously. Kefauver people told Son. Paul Douslas of Illinois he was their fa- vorile. . . . When Ed Alfriend. a Kefauver, lieutenant, dropped in to see Gov. John Bailie of Virginia to try to stir up some Kefauvor support, the governor not only damned Kefauvrr and H a r r i m a n bin oven let loose against the South'! favorite son, Sen. RicJiard Russell. As a tribute to Vice President Hartley's service to the party and as sort of a consolation prize Barklcy will be offered his choice of any U. S. ambassadorship he wants. He'll probably pick either Britain or France . . . . During Ihe convention, President Truman turned down the suggestion that his name be placed in nomination as a friendly gesture and t r i b u t e to his administration. The Migccslinn was marie by members of the Missouri delegation, but Truman thanked them, said "positively no." Bennett Cerf A Texas cattle man struck oil on his property and when the first whopping check arrived his wife hied herself to the fabulous Neiman Marcus store in Dallas and ordered the works. One of her purchases was a ten-thnusand-dollar sl sterling silver diner service. "What monogram do you desire on the set?" asked Miss McDuff who was shepherding her through the store! "Monogram?" echoed the wife dubiously. "What's t h a t ? "It's the family crest or initials." expiain- cd_ Miss McDuff patiently. "Oho," said the wife. "You mean the brand. Just burn each piece with a running BAR-H." * * * A fashionable lariis' club in New England prided itself on Its opon-mindedness and holdiv signed up a notorious Communist to deliver it harangue on the subject, "Capitalism Is Dead!"

The maneti- Ihe stereotyped idea that because jpr they adopted was a rather the New Deal was originally W p cble i m i t a t i o n of the device which had worked so well for Eisenhower. The reason the device did not work out the second time is that in the Democratic convention, as radical movement of the have- nols, the Democratic party today must still be such a movement.

Katy kept her eyes on her hands, tight-clasped in her lap. Her voice was stony as she said. "Because I'm Chris Elmo's sister." "Nonsense!" He sounded like he meant It. "Katy this is just a horrible coincidence. Why, you hardly knew the woman. Did you?" he asked with sudden, renewed sus- ! picion.

Katy mentally stamped her foot. "You think I killed her just because I found her body." "Now, Katy--" Dave looked at her and away--"I've got a job to do, Katy.

He too, had accepted the obvious: Link Murphy had surprised Chris trying to open the safe, Chris shot him, and the older man, dying, had raised his own gun and killed Chris. It hadn't mattered that Chris iad no need to jimmy an alley window or the safe. Not when he iad worked for Link Murphy since ligh school, when he made Saturday deliveries, and since the Army, after which he went to work in earnest, hating the job because the long hours kept him rom The Book. But he didn't hale .ink Murphy--and he didn't kill lim.
