Votes at Fewer Than 500 By STAFF REPRESENTATIVE the basis of Mon days test Aotc Tafts strength on the first ballot for a presidential nominee is now estimated at less than 500 votes The vote on the delegate contest in favor of the fair play very dis couraging to the Taft forces but was received with only cautious optimism in the Eisenhower camp It made clear that Taft cannot hope to get the nomination on the first ballot a possibility forecast by his backers previously The 548 voles cast on the Taft side the delegate contest are more than he can hope to get for the nomination it was pointed out In the1 first place Taft is ex pected to lose at least 50 of these votes in the contested delegations if voting on the credentials committee report follows the Monday after noon line All the contested dele gates voted Monday In the second place some Eisen hower backers voted for the Brown amendment Monday afternoon be cause the issue was clouded and others voted for it as a matter of

to vote in the Republican primary The only thing wrong addec to the cheers of the packed theater was that a lot more of them voice for Eisenhower than for Taft Thats because the general is two or three times as popular in our state as the senator That was the story from Louisi ana and from Georgia too In the case of the latter the organization rejected this year a record of G years of continuous existence wit no questions asked in the past an Atlanta spellbinder told the rally Applause at Crescendo The applause reached its to crescendo when Tom Wisdom o New Orleans pledged a fight I the very gates of hell i need be The conventions credentials committee promised to be the first skirmish ground in that extended fight and there was lively pros pect of a bitter battle on the floor
