DORIS FLEESON:
Stevenson Gets Picked

CHICAGO-Gov. Adlai Stevenson built a
better mousetrap and the Democrats
are trampling him in their rush to clear a
path to his door.
Stevenson seems destined to make po-
litical history by achieving presidential
nomination strictly on his own terms.
It appears that he will be the object of a
genuine draft on a very early ballot. He
has made no commitments to any person,
state, or voting bloc. He hasn't even con-
sulted the omniscient-or are they?-col-
umnists. He is under no obligation to the
incumbent president of his own party.
Even his floor leader is being forced to
volunteer his services. The politicos are
plaintive and bewildered by turns. They
are still confident he can catch General
Eisenhower in his mousetrap, which is con-
solation enough.
The Governor has accomplished this
without loss of dignity and with even an
occasional joke at his own expense. That
he will be a "strong" president if elected
is hardly open to doubt.
All the speculation about vice president
is whistling in the dark. Governor Steven-
son will be in a position, it seems, to make
his choice in that matter too.
He can go East, South or West from his
sweetly central position in the heart of the
great Midwest. All the aspirants for second
place can only stand and wait, hoping they
will be allowed to serve.
The contrast between the situation here
now and two weeks ago could hardly be
more complete.
General Eisenhower is a man of stature.
He will run his own show when he mas-

ters it. But, new to politics, he was ob-
viously in the hands of his managers here.
They fought a good fight for him, capital-
izing fully on a moral issue the Taft
forces handed them. They also, in a pro-
cess of addition and subtraction, chose his
vice president, Sen. Richard Nixon.
In this convention, a stubborn man, wise
in the ways of politics after four 4years at
the helm of a great pivotal state, has per-
formed "operation solo" and seems about to
get away with it.
The American people for their part can
look forward to a campaign between two
men who have no vested interest in the mis-
takes of the past which they will feel bound
to defend.
Democrats felt reassured today when
they looked at the vast hall as astutely
decorated with the legends of their ac-
complishments. Very few however are
inclined to minimize the corruption issue
and the stale winds out of Washington.
They hope and believe the nomination of
Stevenson will minimize these weaknesses.
The temperate Stevenson influence be-
came apparent early. New Dealers respond-
ed by softening the rules changes they were
demanding on the question of contested
delegates. The Southerners were accepting
such changes in part in a manner very dif-
ferent from their early intransigence.
As for other candidates, backers of Aver-
ell Harriman and Sen. Robert Kerr admitted
their wheels were spinning. Sen. Estes Ke-
fauver hasn't given up, nor is he admitting
that he may be making a show of strength
in order to get second place on the ticket.

MATTER OF FACT
By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP
CHICAGO-Whatever happens to Averell
Harriman at this convention, it is at
least worth noting that his last-minute
Presidential candidacy has become a re-
markable phenomenon in American politics.
First there is the transformation of the
candidate himself. Harriman did not desire
to run, preferring to support Gov. Adlai
Stevenson of Illinois; He was originally of-
fered the New York delegation because Paul
Fitzpatrick and the other New York lead-
ers had nowhere else to store their dele-
gates. He had been a great official, but he
was a rank amateur in practical politics.
He had the handicap of his wealth. And
he was only barely able to make a coherent
speech.
Yet in a few short months, without any-
one as yet noticing it very much, Harri-
man has transformed both himself and his
candidacy by sheer courage and grim de-
termination. The politicians here still
underrate Harriman because they have
not seen him in action. But he has always
had a way of learning by doing, and he has
now learned to be a curiously effective cam
paigner.

DRAMA

On the stump, he still stumbles. But he
has acquired a remarkable knack of convey-
ing passionate sincerity and strong emo-
tion, which very few other politicians have.
s e"
PRESIDENT TRUMAN is credited with the
remark that "You can't make a bare-
foot boy out of Ave'rell," but the sincerity
and emotion Harriman achieves can still be
singularly effective. His people here have a
recording of a speech he made in Colorado
which they play to doubters. Even the re-
cording was good enough to change the view
of Sen. Hubert Humphrey, no mean plat-
form speaker and a not insignificant per-
sonage at this convention, that Harriman
would never catch the popular imagination
in an electoral campaign.'
Besides achieving this odd style that
alternates Franklin Roosevelt's organ tones
and his own hesitant honesty, Harriman
has also managed to inspire a remarkable
loyalty and devotion in his little band of
supporters. The whole Harriman show
looks like a youth movement, which is odd
in itself in the rather tired Democratic
party.0
The older liberal Democrats are still hop-
ing for Adlai Stevenson. But Harriman has
attr cted to himself an extraordinarily high
proportion, if not of the ripe wisdom, of at
least the genuine faith and idealism in his
party. Whether or not you agree with the
views prevalent in Harriman headquarters,
it is a rather cheering place to be, if only
as proof that idealism still fluorishes in odd
corners of our political life, and that there
are some people left who are not against
cynics or hopeful payrollers.
Perhaps this is because Harriman, the
richest man in public life, seems to be about
the last Democrat who really believes in the
New and Fair Deals.
**. .
THEN, TOO, there is great interest, again
whether you approve of it or not, in
the underlying Harriman strategy. This
strategy is based upon a simple copputation.
A check of the elections from 1932 onward
shows that the whole Southern electoral
vote could have gone to the Republicans
every time except 1948, and the Democratic
party would still have won every time by
majorities ranging from 133 electoral -'otes
in 1936 to 39 electoral votes in 1944. Further-
more if the Wallace Progressives had not
drawn votes from the Democrats in New
York and other Northern States, the Dem-
ocrats could have lost the whole South and
still won even in 1948.
Since Harriman and his supporters ar-
gue that the Democratic future depends
apon a clear progressivism, a firm rejec-
tion of all compromises with the Southern
conservatives. And it must be said that
the arguments sound convincing when you
hear Harriman, pale, rather gaunt, yet
full of vigor, expounding his thesis in his
low-voiced, intense way.
Harriman's trouble is, meanwhile, that
he has got to convince this convention, which
will take a lot of doing. His favorite anec-
dote these days is a quotation from Wood-
row Wilson. According to Harriman, Wil-
son once remarked that there were always
more liberals than conservatives, but that
the liberals marched to their objectives alone
and apart, so that the conservatives, who al-
ways stuck together, were generally able to
pick off the liberals one by one.
In the present case, Harriman's chances=
would look much better if, for example,
he could form a combination with Sen.
Estes Kefauver. Sen. Humphrey has sought
to arrange just such a combination. But
Kefauver, after his hard fight, was not
willing to consider second place; and
neither was Harriman. Thus all the Harri-
man leaders are now awaiting the word
of the President. Truman encouraged the
Harriman candidacy. He has more than
once stated to Harriman that he meant
to support him. If the President is faith-
ful to his moral obligation, Harriman will
have Truman's support.
But again the trouble ia that the exnert

ON THE
{ WASHEINGTON
ME1IRLY-GO-HOUNb
WITH DREW PEARSON
CHICAGO-The inside story of Adlai Stevenson's tortuous trail
toward the Democratic presidential nomination can now b told
for the first time.
Inside fact is that Stevenson stayed in the background, for two
basic reasons:
He wanted an absolutely free hand, did not want to be the
handpicked stooge of the big city bosses.
He did not and does not want to be Truman's man. His private
opinion is that Truman is a political albatross around any Demo-
crat's neck.
That was why the Illinois Governor grimly fought off the en-
treaties of Illinois political boss Jake Arvey, that he announce his
candidacy. Such a move, he knew, would have made Arvey the big
wheel of any Stevenson-for-president drive. He also gently rebuffed
all pressure from the White House, deliberately scorned a White
House blessing.
During a series of conferences with a White House adviser
two months ago, Stevenson laid down five basic conditions under
which he would consider running. They were aimed to discourage
Truman, as follows:
1-That he, Stevenson, have the right to name his own campaign
manager.
2-That he have the right to name his own chairman of the
Democratic National Committee.
3-That the Democratic platform be cleared with him before
presentation to the convention.
4-That President Truman agree to campaign only when-
ever and wherever Stevenson wanted him to.
5-That President Truman agree to clear all speeches during
the campaign with Stevenson in advance of delivery.
Stevenson also asked that he have the power to pass on his
own vice-presidential running mate. He also wanted the White
House emissary to be very careful not to consult with Jake Arvey
on any of the above.
HARRY GETS SORE
WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMAN heard Stevenson's conditions, he hit
the ceiling. Stevenson's attitude, he exploded was a personal
affront, particularly when it came to clearing presidential speeches
with a candidate.
"I'm President," Truman said, "and I owe that fact to no
one, including Adlai Stevenson. I'm not going to clear my speeches
with a living soul.
"What's more," Truman added, "I'll speak whele I darned well
want to speak and when I want to speak. I fought the '48 campaign
out alone and I can fight this one out alone too if I have to."
As a result of Truman's reaction, Stevenson climbed back
into his shell,'refused to commit himself further on the nomina-
tion. As a result, also, Truman put Stevenson in the same dog-
house that Truman already erected to hold another leading Dem-
ocratic -candidate-Sen. Estes Kefauver.
Stevenson's stirring speech to the opening of the Democratic
convention brought his candidacy to life with a bang. It will be inter-
esting to see whether the President and his cronies now gang up on
Stevenson the way they have on Kefauver.
LABOR LEADERS END BARKLEY HOPES
THE MOST PATHETIC meeting of the entire Democratic conven-
tion occurred not in a smoke-filled room but in Room 709 of the
Blackstone Hotel during a breakfast between Vice President Alben
Barkley and eight Labor leaders.
The meeting was called by friendly mutual agreement and
was attended by Walter Reuther, head of the United Auto Work-
ers, George Harrison, head of the AFL Railway Clerks, Cy Ander-
son of Railway Labor's Political League and Jack Kroll, head of
the CIO Political Action Committee. Barkley came without an
aide or assistant. He said he wanted to talk to the Labor leaders
alone.
At the start of the breakfast, the Vice President made a long
and empassioned plea for Labor support. He told of his long record
of fighting liberal causes, how he had always championed Labor. He
reviewed his own voting record on civil rights and social legislation.
The Labor leaders listened carefully but before he finished they
knew they would have to tell him they could not support him.
They couldn't break the old man's heart by telling him the
truth-that, at 74, he was too old, that he couldn't be elected.
They tried to let him down gently.
Kroll pointed out that Barkley was getting into the race at a very
late date and much of Labor's support was already pledged to Harri-
man or Kefauver. Furthermore, he said that labor could not take
some of the personalities who had climbed aboard the Barkley band-
wagon. He specifically mentioned Jim Farley, though the Labor lea-
ers also had in mind reports that General Motors was secretly pushing
Barkley with the idea that he would be one Democrat who would
insure an easy Eisenhower victory.
The Labor men knew that Barkley's record was good, and they
admired it. Bt t they also knew that no man of 74 could win, and

they were determined that a Democrat be nominated with a chance
to win.
Later, Reuther put it to Barkley as gently as possible.
"Mr. Vice President," he said, "we have nothing against you.
We admire you andar efor you personally. But the trouble is that
you're being used."
As the meeteing broke up, they could see that the old man's eyes
began to fill with tears. After years of battling for the party, years of
working for New Deal legislation in congress, after hundreds of
speeches he made at Jackson Day .

At Lydia Mendelssohn . .
WINTERSET, by Maxwell Anderson. Pre-
sented by the Department of Speech.
PROBABLY the most impressive artistic
by-product of the Sacco-Vanzetti Case,
this play remains the single successful at-
tempt in American drama to cast contem-
porary tragedy in classic terms and in poetic
form. With it Anderson corroborates the
Greek conclusion that drama is to be found
in the single, sensitive man's struggle against
the indifferent forces which shape his life.
Grafted onto this, in the Anderson play, is
an Elizabethan reassurance that man, at
least before he is infected by the vices of
this world, has some virtue to him. Even as
he goes down, the tragic hero finds victory
by persisting in his resistance. Man, in Win-
terset, is noble only in his youth. After that
he must either die or conform.
The poetry of Winterset is often beau-
tiful. Its construction is simple and spare,
and its characters move rigidly but log-
ically in their places with that pattern of
inevitability which is the mark of tragedy.
In its production of Winterset, the Speech
Department meets with, at best, only indif-
ferent success. This is mostly because of a
monotonous mediocrity of performance: only
ftf![A.C n ....C .oa - 4--_

the articulate and disenchanted Mio Ro-
magna, Donald Kleckner once in a while
achieves poetry but is more often merely
histrionic. As Trock Estrella, Ted Heusel is
curt and ominous. The best sustained per-
formance is that of Dan Mullin, the Elwood
P. Dowd of two weeks ago. Mr. Mullin does
the mad Judge Gaunt with a kind of de-
tached unreality that invests his maunder-
ings about the function of the law with gen-
uine satire.
The remainder of the cast, however,
moves as in'a grade-B thriller, without
conviction or consciousness. And as an
unfortunate result, the audience often re-
ceives as 'comic relief' scenes which are
far from that.
It is as though this entire production of
Winterset were being treated as one deals
with a period piece: as an exercise in
'drama', without importance or immediacy,
and with only a kind of historical interest.
It has a great deal more of substance to it
than that.
