ROBERTS AP News Analyst Reports from Europe hnve it there isn't much interest over! there in the American political' conventions. In 1952 there was worry. Europe was about as satisfied with Ameri- can foreign policy as it ever is and, although Dwlglit Elsenhower was n popular figure there, no change was desired Since then Eisenhower has be- come one of the control figures n Europe's hopos for pence; American foreign policy has not changed; and Europe Is now sot- sficrt that Hie Republican nml democratic labels don't m c n n nnch to (hem.

Europeans will never quite un- derstand the gyrations of Amcri- the Kennedy, vico president of United Mine Workers McDonald and Kennedy were working to expand support for Harrirnan in the big 74 vote Penn- sylvania delegation, where Gov. George M. Leader claimed over- whelming support for Stevenson. There was no attempt by the leaders divided loyalties Monday 15-mitlion member AFL-CIO to between leading contenders for the Democratic presidential nomi- nation. But they kept an eye on the key Michigan delegation where Walter Reuther, United Auto Workers Union chief, weilds in- fluence. The Michigan contingent, with 44 convention votes, leaned to- ward Adlai Stevenson, whom Reulher was said to prefer. However, forces supporting Gov. Averell Harriman of New York were seeking to capture life favor of Michigan Gov. G. Mcnnen Wil- liams and Reuther. Williams, a favorite son candi- date for the Democrats' top nom- ination, has never expressed a for- mal preference as between Ste- venson and Harriman. At limes he has been critical of Steven- son's civil rights views. A number of union leaders at- tending the convention were sup- porting Harriman. These included David J. McDonald, Stcelworkers Union president, George M. Har rison, president of the Railway Clerks Brotherhood, and Thomas take sides officially between Ste- venson and Harriman, the latter favored by former President Tru- man. But leaders of individual un- ions were openly choosing be- tween the two. Harrison, chairman of the par ty's labor advisory committee, held a reception Sunday night for Harriman. It was well attended by union officials. Harrison ar ranged a similar reception Mon- day night for Stevenson. Gus Scholle, Michigan CIO Coun- cil chairman, said at a meeting of his state's group Sunday night that he felt 80 per cent of the Michigan delegates favor Steven- son. He said Gov. Williams holds Ihe key to the way the delegation will go. If Williams withdraws as a favorite son said, a nod candidate, Scholle from the governor could loss the slate delegation to Stevenson nearly 100 per cent. But if Williams should favor Harriman, Schoole added, the del egation would split fairly evenly between Harriman and Stevenson Never a BETTER CAR BETTER BUY! Would you believe it?
