Press and United Press InternaUonal Full Lease MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JULY 0 JHIUIVUMT JULY y 1V60 7o a Paper of Two SectionsSection No 23 Senators control conclave By ROBERT DONOVAN New York Herald Tribune LOS ANGELES From time immemorial more or less one used to arrive on the icene of a national political convention with an almost exclusive inter est in governors Everyone well grounded in po litical maxims knew better than to bother about senators They were conceded practically no chance of being nominated for president except in unusual cir cumstances such as prevailed at the Republican national con vention in Chicago in 1920 when a group of senators controlled it In that case Sen Warren G Harding of Ohio walked off with the nomination but the circum stances were extraordinary Otherwise for reasons well elab orated upon at the time by the cognoscenti senators simply didnt have the right kind of springboard to flip them into nomination HENCE ONE concentrated on Gov Theodore Roosevelt of New York or Gov Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey or former Gov later associate justice of the Supreme Court Charles Evans Hughes of New York or Gov Robert M La Follette of Wis consin or Gov James M Cox of Ohio or Gov CalvinCoojidge of Massachusetts or dov Franklin p Roosevelt of New York orGov AlfredLM Landon of Kansas or Govy Thomas E Deweyof New York True there has been some po tent

twin daughters of airport man ager and Mrs Mike Griffin From their sun bonnets the girls seem to prefer the covered wagon days But they later became accustomed to the jet noise and welcomed the fliers with smiles Blue Rioting mutiny spread roug African Congo vow Davis a lawyer Wendell L Wilkie a utilities executive and Dwight D Eisenhower a gen eral But theircases differed from those of senators And furthermore notably in the case of Gen Eisenhower strength rested heavily on the preconvention activities of gov ernors Now in 1960 as delegates gatl er for the Democratic nationa convention the picture ha changed radically To be sure some of the governors are play ing highly important roles Pos sibly the outcome of the ballol ing will depend on the decision of such governors as Edmunc G Pat Brown of California David L Lawrence of Pennsyl vania and Robert B Meyner o New Jersey All those planning to attend the eighth annual Aviation STILL THEIR decisions may be forced upon them by events and anyhow they are given little chance of nomination unless an unexpected combination of cir cumstances should produce a third victory for Adlai E Stev enson who was governor of Illinois from 1949 to 1953 Instead all eyes are on sen F Kennedy Mass Lyndon B Johnson Tex Stuart Symington Mo and Hubert H Humphrey Minn The last is out of the running for president Day show at Municipal Air port Sunday

utsheli b u t he still controls 50 or so votes that could decide the out come and thus stands in a strong position to be nominated for vice president In fact old maxims may be completely de molished by the selection of a ticket of senators for exam ple Kennedy and Humphrey The old theory ruling out sen ators for tne nomination focused largely on such propositions as that senators could not build political organizations the way governors could and thus were lost at conventions and that as members of Congress they had to take stands on issues that cost them broad support Hence it was noted that the voting rec ord of Sen Robert A Taft of Ohio alienated the liberals that Sen Arthur H Vandenberg ol Michigan the isolationists and so on THE SPECTACLE in Los An geles today robs these theories of much of their force although the fact that nine governors have been nominated for presi dent in the last half century suggests that the state capitals will always offer pathways to the White House In the current ascendency of the senators however it is clear that moderate voting records like those of the present con tenders do hot repel large sec tions of the electorate Furthermore as the efforts the talent and the money of Sen Kennedy demonstrate a sena tor can build a national organ ization Indeed one is at a loss to recall when a governor ever had an organization to match Kennedy machine
