Mitchell the partys national chairman Mitchell took charge of arrange ments for the dinner after John J Kelly a Chicago at torney quit Friday as chairman He said his ideas conflicted with those of Mitchell But it appeared that Sen Guy Gillette Cherokee Iowa Democrat had a central role the rift Pnrty leaders said Kellys rcsig nation could not be termed a party rift but rathera personal matter Kelly reportedly was miffed be cause he was not named toast master at the dinner at which it is hoped to raise to pay off national committee debts Mitchell earlier had announced that Senator Gillette
