Russ, Satellites Hold Strategy Parley at Warsaw ed a surprise conference of her Nominating Talks On Tap for Today; Balloting Thursday By Jacfc Bel) Convention Hall, Arthur H. Vandenberg gave an okay today for his name to ;o formally before the Republican nominating convention, and leaders of spreading "stop Dew- ey" coalition Immediately sought to enlist his backers. Senator Robert A. Taft. heading the "slop Dewey" moves with Harold E. Stassen, told reporters he and ;tasscn have invited Governors Kim Siglcr of Michigan anJ Earl Warren of California to a conference. Siglcr leads the Michigan delegation booming Vandeuberg for the nomi- nation. As Tart and Stassen outlined thn situation in separate news confer- ences, their aim is this: First, to convince Dewey and tho convention that the New York gov- ernor cannot be nominated. Second, to let the convention dele- gates decide without pressure among he other presidential hopefuls. Taft and Stassen had conferred together Just before their meetings with reporters. Governor James H. Duff of Pennsylvania, sat in on the conference. Duff Is leading an anti-Dewey fac- tion in the big Pennsylvania delega- tion. That group Is to caucus tonight and Duff said, "We will have a can- didate" to oppose the efforts to line up the delegation for Dewey. Stassen told reporters there la 'great resentment" among the delc- .jates over the attempt to swing tho Pennsylvania delegates to Dewey. Senator Edward Martin withdrew yesterday as Pennsylvania's favorite son candidate and plumped for Dewey. Stassen called this the 'Dewcy-Grundy deal." The refer- ence was to Joe Gmndy, long-time Republican political power in Penn- sylvania. Open Convention Stassen also said the aim of the stop-Dewey forces is to get an "open one where the delegates would make their decisions on the convention floor. Both Stassen nnd Taft professed to believe Dewey Js stopped. Taft predicted that Dcwcy will not have as many as 400 votes on the second ballot, and he added: "I think the second will be his highest." It will take 548 votes to win the nomination. The Ohioan said he believes his total will begin to climb from the second ballot on and that he will be nominated on about the fourth or fifth ballot. He said: "I think Governor Dewey lias got to be nominated on the second bal- ,ot or not at all, and I don't believe that he will be nominated on the second." Taft said the series of conferences he has been holding with other can- didates has two purposes. The first, ic added, is to make sure that every delegation will be able to carry out ts original plan without being sub- icctcd to what he called a Dowey 'blitz." He said the second purpose is to find out whether there is any pos- sibility of the coalition agreeing on some one candidate.

Taft announced that one of those who will second his nomination will be a delegate from Dewey's own New York. He refused to disclose the name of the delegate. For the first time in the big hall here, Vandenberg banners put in an appearance. A truck drove up with a load of them soon after SiRlcr an- nounced he had the Michigan sena- tor's consent to put his name before the convention. Vandenberg stuck by his stand that he is not actively seeking the nomination. But Governor Siglcr said he had obtained the senator's consent for him to put up his name, Dewey's drive got another push, this time from Missouri. Senator James P. Kern, chairman of the Missouri delegation, issued this an- nouncement: "I have decided to support Governor Dewey-. I look forward to his nomination on an early ballot. 1 believe he will bo the next President of the United States." The big item today is the nomi- nating speeches.
