There was no way to avoid votes

therefore It was decided "that the

The confirmation of. the report of

No claims are being advanced bv

Mr. McAdoo's friends say he may
run third in the balloting on early
votes. They expect Palmer to lead
because he has a tremendous "com
pllmeniary" vote that would be cast
for him on the first ballot. Cox may
run second they atld and after that
the break will be toward McAdoo.
The Tammany delegation Is hav

regarding McAdoo. It will cast its

some of these subjects ut least would
dsvslop fights In tho full commit
tee and probably on the convention
floor, regardless of what action ths
subcommittee might take.
