All the major candidates stayed awny from the six hour, 42-mlnute session. Seven hopefuls were named Dewey, Tuft, Stassen, Warren, Baldwin, Vandenberg and Mac- Arthur, Senator Edward Martin of Penn- sylvania, who cast off his favorite son robes to back Dcwey, told the delegates that in offering the New Yorker's name "I am about to nomi- nate the next president of the United States." There was booing, as well as cheers when Martin spoke. When ho had finished, the Dewey plac- ards nnd cards bobbed up and the traditional demonstration was on. Soon the nlsles were fuller than any sardine can with shrieking humans who went around and around the hall chanting their 'We-wnnt-Dewey" refrain. Dr. Robert Gordon Sproul, presi- dent of the University of Calif- ornia, offered Governor Warren as "a modem American, Intelligently aware of a world in which time and space have been almost entirely Hollywood Parade That touched off a Hollywoodian parade.

These reports said principal op- position to terms of a new con- tract to replace the one expiring June 30 came from powerful south- ern operators and steel company 'captive" mine interests.

This was nominating night at the Republican convention. Seven Hours It lasted nearly seven hours, from p. m. (E.S.T.) until almost the dawn's early Tens of thousands or worcu> were spoken. Millions of volts of electricity were burned up in the lights, the public address system, the radio, television and telegraph. Millions more, In human energy, were lavished in the screaming and cavorting of the delegates to the convention and the peo- ple in. the audience. It was a night of happy Insanity, of amiable idiocy, of roaring and thunder and raw hysteria. It was a grand old party and a good time was had by all. Tho purpose of all your banner and a nearly-blind Milwau- kee lawyer brought General Douglas MacArthur's name before the Re- publican national convention short- ly before dawn today. MacArthur was nominated for president by Harlan W. Kelley. Carrying a red-and-white cane and led by an usher, he spoke extem- poraneously. Two hours earlier. Senator Mc- Carthy (R.-Wis.) and 19 Wisconsin delegates pledged to Harold E Stassen helped lire the thunderous ovation for their favorite. The other eight Wisconsin dele- gates, including Kelley, are pledged to MacArthur. Kelley pleaded in an almost de- fiant tone. He said: "No mere politician can fill the President's chair. "Politicians are a dime a dozen And Governors? We have 48 of them. And Congressmen come in bundles of 100. "But there's only one Douglas MacArthur. And we need him." The MacArthur demonstration was two or three min- utes, A group of youths carrying wire baskets filled with MacArthur petitions and newspaper clippings about him marched up the center aisle while a band played wearily. Chairman Martin gaveled it down and ended the night's show. The Wisconsin delegates and their Taft Gets 274, Stassen 149 on Second Count BULLETIN Convention Hall, Thomas E.

Taft Winner bewilderment is wholly understand..lltes joined vigorously when the 'former Minnesota governor's turn came. Earlier last night the state's 27 delegates finally got together after three days of chilly convention rela- tions, but It was purely political. The 19 Stassen and eight MacAr- thur delegates warmed up to each other at a, crowded cocktail party for all Badgers here for the conven- tion. They appeared to enjoy much that when Governor Earl Warren of California walked into the tap room he got a big cheer from both sides.

Friends of Mrs. Yvonne Townc, he will take days allowed for (Sundays and holidays don't count.) incruiry. In terms of time, the demonstra- tion on behalf of Senator Robert A. Taft was the winner. It lasted 38 minutes. But in. terms of wild and unrestrained bolstering, pluse imag- ination and inventiveness, Harold E. Stassen's supporters were un- challenged. They were the ones who floated the boat, sent the buxom and. be- sweatered little drum-majorette to the podium, along with a Sioux In- dian chief and the Scottish High- landers. They were the ones, too, who stormed the galleries and put two brass bands on the floor, each blaring a different tune. The manifestation for Governor Thomas E.

Dewey fell 134 votes, short of the 548 needed to win the presi- dential nomination today on the first roll call at the Republican convention. The balloting brought these totals: 434, Taft 224, Stassen 157, Vanden- berg G2, Dirkscn 1, Recce 15, Dris- coll 35, Green 50, Baldwin 19. War- ren 53, Joseph Martin 18 and Mac- Arttmr 11. Before the sliirt-slccvcd delegates started filing into the hall, Dcwcy's ooom got boosts from Massachusetts and West Virginia. Senator Leverett Saltoiistall, "fav- orite son" candidate of Massachu- setts, got out of the race and threw ais personal support to Dewey. These developments in the final hours before the balloting gave It the look of a bandwagon roll. Dewey's aides were working on art acceptance speech. A key midwcstern. leader, -who has fought Dewey's nomination, told re- porters, "It's all but asked not to be quoted by name. Snltonstall announced he wns withdrawing Tycausc he believed it "in the best interest of the Republi- can party in Massachusetts."

Colonel Robert R. McCormick, publisher of the Chicago Tribune, got out a sta la- ment naming Representative Charles HnlJcck of Indiana as Dewey's choice for vice-president, Halleck came out for Dewey yesterday. McCormick said "Dewey will not be nominated because the delegates realize, he will be hard to elect" and. declared: 'Everyone knows that the Indiana delegation was bought by the vice- presidential nomination for Halleck after Governor Green turned down the offer for the Illinois delegation." Governor Kim Sigler of Michigan told reporters he would take a poll of his delegates to indicate where they wanted to go if the nomination appeared lost to Vandenberg. Dewey lieutenants claim there are at least 33 second choice votes for Dewey in the Michigan delegation. Senator Tnft conferred with mem- bers of the Utah and Kentucky del- (Conllnucd on r.isre 18.
