whoso delegations were seated by the convention Thursday over the protest of proadminis tration forces Shown are Govs John Battle of F Byrnes of South Carolina and Robert Kenhon of Louisiana Realists Whip Idealists in Seating Southerners to Avoid Party Division By W EARL HALL Staff Representative In a headon collision Thursday night between the so lalled liberal idealists and the realists of the Democratic party the dcalists came out second best The contest hinged on admitting Virginias dele gation to full rights in the convention even though it lad not had jeen prescribed inescapable condition v When the roll call of states approached com it was evident that Virginia and a bloc of Dixiecrat states were about to be read out of the arty on the eve ot a presidential campaign Realists Take Command At this juncture the realists meaning the poli icians look command of the situation and lofty noral principle was pushed inlo quick retreat One stale after another began changing its vote W EARL HALL What happened in the Iowa delegation was typical of what took ilacc in many other slates On the original vote the count for booting Virginia was to That was when the lowans were expressing their convictions on the rinciple of party responsibility Later in the face of the cold fact that a sizable bloc of soulhcrn oles were being cast aside another vole was taken It resulted in a t7 to 7 favor for the Virginians Thats the figure that goes into the convention records Final Count 415529 In the end Virginia was declared legitimate by a count of 015 to H29 And the pattern had been set for opening the gales to the other bat joy states in the deep south In short the purge of Dixiecrats insisted on by President Trumar and the Fair Deal faction of the party was moved forward iito the ndcfinite future There and quile a who would have courted dcfea his year to advance the ideal of a party realignment They wouli purge their Byrds and Talmadgcs in the hope ot picking up a like or greater number of Morses and Aikens from the rival parly But they hadnt reckoned with the coldturkey par iculitrly those Democrats up for election These latter were willing o shoot close enough lo the Dixiecrats lo give them a scare But the lidnL want any direct hits on tho target GOP Inroads While Ihc Republican party may conceivably make some inroads nto the Solid South it will not be because this convention left no other course Dixie with all its past incorrigibilities with respect lo the Vew Deal still has a lodging place reserved for it ia the Democratic louschold Thats the real meaning ot what transpired in convention hal Thursday night in a somewhat hectic interlude between a dreary sue cession of nominating speeches and labored demonstrations Selective Service Formulates System for Farm Deferments DES MOINES A definite1 system for farm deferments from Lhc draft was announced Friday byslate selective service head quarters It provides that each appliaction for a farm deferment will be weighed in relation to agricultural production requirements The new plan is definitely not a point system state selective service director R A Lancaster said The plan was devised after a conference between selective serv ice officials and the state agricul tural mobilization committee head ed by PJVTA Chairman H E Hazen Basically Lancaster said the plan will weigh farm deferment requests in relation to overall pro duction goals rather than in terms of the situation on an individual farm The plan he explained is a de velopment on both a stale and county basis of a method for measuring the quantities of agri cultural commodities being pro cluccd for market by registrants a compared with the average annua production per farm worker from local average farms Puerto Rico Gets
