Several hours later, while most people at the Republican conven- tion were heading for bed, Mlnne- sotans and other Stassen admirers milled in and around the Stassen headquarters In the Bellevue- Stratford hotel. They chanted: "We still want Governor Youngdahl, chairman of the Minnesota delegation, told a reporter: "We made a good fight and al- though we did not win the nomi- nation, I believe it rendered an Invaluable service to the Republi- can party for the establishment of liberal and progressive policies."

Dewey as Republican presidential nominee- Murray was asked about Mr. Tru- man's reaction to thc G.O.P. meet- Ing after he had talked with the President at the White House, Murray told reporters: "He (Mr. Truman) seemed to Weather FEDERAL FORECASTS Winona and vicinity Partly cloudy and somewhat cooler tonight; lowest 57.

(The communique as Lewis, Most of Soft Coal Mines Approve Contract L. Lewis and most of the soft coal operators ;oday signed a new coal contract providing a wage Increase and twice as much money for the miners' welfare-pension fund. An official of the steel industry- owned coal mines had announced earlier he would not sign the agree- ment. A Joint announcement by Lewis and the operators who signed said the new contract except for the increased wages and pension fund- kept "all other terms and condi- tions of the previous wage agree- ment." This includes an outright con- tinuation of a. union shop provision, despite a Taf t-Hartley labor act ban against the union shop unless it is authorized by the National Labor Relations board. This union shop clause caused Harry M. Moses to balk at signing for the steel industry owned "cap- tive" coal mines. The new contract is effective July 1 and will replace one expiring June 30. The miners, however, begin their annual ten-day vacation tomorrow and will not return to work until July 6. "I'm not in accord with the con- tract and I'm not signing Moses told newsmen.

Republicans, we can start out with our chances of victory most fav- orable." McCormack said the "strongest candidate the Republicans could have nominated would have been Senator Vandenberg." But Colonel Robert B. McCor- mick, publisher of the Chicago Tribune, who had opposed Dewey's nomination, looked at it differently. "It might have been he said. "It might have been Vanden- berg." Senator MilliMn who originally had supported Senator Tart's candidacy, said "Dewey is a thoroughly splendid candidate. We carried Colorado for him four years ago and we will do it again." Taft told Ohio convention dele- gates his showing "was a disap- pointment." But after congratulat- ing the victor, the senator told newsmen he had assured Dewey that "I would be glad to help him in any way I could." Harold E. Stassen made no for- mal comment after announcing to the convention just before the de- cisive third ballot that he was turn- ing his votes over to Dewey. In Tokyo, General Douglas Mac- Arthur said, Dewey's nomination was a "splendid choice" -which "should give assurance and confi- dence not only to our own people but to the freedom loving peoples of the world."

New York's Dewey, getting his second chance at the presidency, made it an East-West all-governor ticket after an all-night series of conferences. The word quickly spread to con- vention hall and the delegates didn't take long to whoop through Warren's name. Leaders of camps ol other disap- pointed presidential hopefuls were quick to line up behind thc Dewey- Warren combination. After his nomination Warren took the speaker's stand and drew a laugh at the outset by saying: "For the first time in my life I know what it feels like to get nit by a streetcar.

One ol those who backed a losing contender for the No. 2 G.O.P. spot told something of what went on behind the closed doors of Dewey's hotel suite. "It -was like arguing a case before the Supreme he said. Dewey sat there like a Suprfeme court judge, he explained, to hear the "case" for every vice-presidential hopeful. He was flanked by a "board" including Senator Lcverctt Saltonstall of Massachusetts, Sena- Baldwin of Connecti- of Michigan. Governor Alfred E.
