  • Description

    Latest moves in this "Adlai for President" campaign include jolly matron soliciting signature along Fifth Avenue, and a full page length advertisement in the New York Times. The advertisement tries to capitalize on Truman's allegations that the forth coming Democratic Party convention in Los Angeles has been "rigged" for Kennedy. The ad says:
    "How You Can Help Guarantee an Open Convention at Loss Angeles and Get...THE BEST MAN"
    Many political commentators feel that Adlai Stevenson is being neglected in preparation for the Democratic Party convention. It is said that in any Kennedy government he would be offered the role of Secretary of State, but his supporters at the previous election still feel him capable of assuming the task and responsibilities of the Presidency - citing Kennedy's youth to his detriment.
