Allies Quit
Truce Talks
For Week
By The Associated Press
MUNSAN, Korea, Saturday, July
26-The Allied armistice team
walked out of the Panmunjom con-
ference tent early .today and said
they would be back in a week.
Maj. Gen. William K. Harrison
made his declaration of a recess
after the first open meeting of the
truce teams which followed a long
series of closed sessions.
THE SECRET sessions failed to
produce any results Clark said,
because the Communists "refused
to recognize the inescapable fact
that a large percentage of Chinese
prisoners refused flatly to go back
to their former masters."
In Tokyo, Gen. Mark Clark re-
vealed full details of secret
truce talks with the Reds for 21
He said in a resume the talks
did not lead to an armistice be-
cause the Communists "refused to
recognize the inescapable fact that
a large percentage of Chinese pris-
oners refused flatly to go back to
their former masters."

CIO Ends
Steel Strike
Holds Off 'Back

WASHINGTON-(P)--The long-
est steel strike in the nation's his-
tory was officially ended last
night by the striking CIO Steel-
workers' Policy Committee, but the
union held off official notifica-
tion sending 600,000 strikers back
to work.
The Policy Committee ratified
an agreement reached at the
White House Thursday afternoon.
That agreement stated that "upon
ratification of this memorandum

Sources close to the situation

out involving a companion strike
of 23,000 ore workers, also mem-

The White House agreement ap-

OTHER ORE companies which
have not been in on the long, ted-
ious negotiations the past six
months, were said to be in dis-
agreement with the union over in-
terpretation of the memorandum
of agreement.
The White House agreement an-
ticipated partial abolition of exist-
ing differentials between the ore
workers' pay and the higher pay
of steel workers. Industry sources
said that despite Murray's signa-
ture on the White House agree-
ment Murray would delay his
back-to-work order until he has
ironed out all disagreements with
the ore companies.
The union was silent on wheth-

also go to steel workers of smaller

had 613 votes with 615!/2 needed to nominate.

Russell Vie
For VP Job
Special To The Daily
CHICAGO -With dramatic
speeches of support for < Adlai
Stevenson, the other two top Dem-
ocratic aspirants placed them-
selves in the favored position for
the vice-presidential nomination.
Both Sen. Estes Kefauver . Qf
Tennessee and Sen. Richard Rus-
sell of Georgia won giant ovations
as they mounted the platform to
turn their delegates over to the
Illinois governor just after he had
nearly slid over the top at the end
of the regular roll on the third
EITHER MAN was regarded as
a likely candidate for the veep's
job. As Southerners they could be
expected to unify the Party, and
Russell is especially acceptable to
the South.
Kefauver led on the first two
ballots, but failed to gain ap-
preciably as the third started.
Just before the nominating bal-
lot begiftn his chances had been
ruined when New York and Mas-
sachusetts turned a large part of
their delegations to Stevenson.
Others mentioned were Sen.
John Sparkman of Alabama and
Sen. William Fulbright of Arkan-
Stevenson, now leader of the
Democratic Party is expected to be
the man who ultimately decides
who his running-mate will be. As
the convention prepared to ad-
journ early this morning after
hearing Stevenson's acceptance
speech and President Truman's
message it was not known who his
choice would be for the second

NUMEROUS rumors floated
around Convention Hall, but sea-
soned observers were betting on
either Kefauver or Russell. There
was some speculation over Rus-
sell's availability.

" Tennessee got recognition from
Chairman Sam Rayburn and Sen.
Estes Kefauver, who had been a
contender himself, came to the
microphones to throw Tennessee's
28 votes to Stevenson and put the
Illinois Governor over.
"We havenominated a very
great man," Kefauver said. "We
will do all we can to elect Steven-
son as President of the United

As The Daily went to press
at 2:00 a.m. this morning Pres-
ident Truman was in the mid-
dle of a "Give-'em-Hell" speech
launching the campaign of the
party's brand new standard-
bearer, Governor Stevenson.
President Truman attacied
the GOP, lauded the achieve-
ments of the Democratic Party
at home and abroad and pre-
dicted victory for Stevenson in
the coming campaign.
It is expected that after
Stevenson's acceptance speech
the convention will adjourn un-

American who is the nominee of

Bargain Days Get Little
Response from Merchants

The band struck up: "We're
loyal to you, Illinois."
* * *
KEFAUVER had sought to speak
to the convention during the roll
call, but convention officials told
him it could not be interrupted.
Kefauver had led Stevenson
on two afternoon ballots and
Russell in third place, had
trailed him closely.
But after a dinner recess, the
whole complexion of the situation
changed. The forces back of
Stevenson -- numbering President
Truman among them - had put
in some heavy spade work in the
interval. Their labors quickly
showed the results.
AVERELL Harriman, who had
received 121 second ballot votes,
announced he was withdrawing
and hoped his convention friends
would vote for Stevenson.
Gov. Paul A. Dever, Massa-
chusetts favorite son, also made
a plug from the rostrum micro-
phones for the Illinois Governor.
The convention tapped Steven-
son to lead the Democrats against
GOP nominee Dwight D. Eisen-
hower in the face of his insistence,
almost to the last, that he did
not want the nomination. Stev-
enson had asked the Illinois dele-
gation not to put his name in the
list of candidates.

Local merchantmen displayed a
general lukewarm response to Ann
Arbor's traditional Bargain Days
event this week, despite reports
that the volume of sales exceeded
that of last year.
Out of the nearly twenty lead-
ing merchants of Ann Arbor in-
terviewed yesterday, more than
one-third of them reported no ap-
preciable jump in Bargain Days
sales over last year. The slightly
less than two-thirds who reported
an increase maintained, for the

said that he did not anticipate
a real increase in Bargain Days
sales this year, but "would have
been glad" if they reached last
year's level.
With prices slashed up to 50
per cent value; or more, several of
the merchants indicated that de-
spite a possible general increase
in sales over last year's event,
Bargain Days did not pay off, dol-
