Mr. Pallet, Firman Mones- lime, mayor of Mattawa, Ont., and James Baskin of Renfrew, Ont., were dropped from the second ballot after they failed to win one-sixth of the delegates on the first vote. Most of Air. Monestime's forces also went to Mr, Mat- thews. Mr. Diefenbaker visited Uie convention twice, moving through corridors and greeting old friends, but never entering the meeting rooms. The other crease in party op- timism involved Quebec. Less than a third of the 450 delegates to which Quebec was entitled appeared. The Conservatives have only tliree Quebec MPs in the Com- mons. SUPPORT PLEDGED But delegates were ecstatic when Ontario Premier William Davis appeared on the platform with Mr. Stanfield Sunday night and pledged the support of the strong provincial machine to the coming federal contest. They were also cheered by the presence of provincial Con- servative premiers elected in the last 12 Peter Lcugheed and New Bruns- wick's Richard Hatfield.

After he won the presidency, Mr. Matthews expressed hope for solid teamwork with the rest of the newly-elected executive Roy Watson of Calgary, Bernard Flynn of Montreal, Ralph Sykes of Hali- fax, treasurer Malcolm Wickson of Vancouver and secretary Jean Wadds of Ottawa.
