ADA Urges Write-In
Other Than Truman
In District Primary
Americans for Democratic Action,
the liberal, anti-Communist group
which succeeded in its fight to place
candidates on the District Demo
cratic primary ballot, urged voters
here today to write in the name
of some one other than President
The District primary, once post
poned by court order, now is sched
uled for next Monday from 2 to 8
p.m. President Truman’s name is
the only one appearing on the presi
dential preference part of the ballot,
but a write-in is possible. ADA is
not suggesting any candidate by
name, but the group has stated it
would prefer either Gen. Eisenhower
or Supreme Court Justice Douglas.
ADA is asking that voters ap
prove a move to bind the District's
delegates to vote for the leading
candidate in the presidential prefer
ence voting, however. It is opposing
a proposition to bind the delegation
by a unit rule.
The ticket, as finally worked out
in an agreement between the ADA
backed group and the regular or
ganization headed by -Melvin D.
Hildreth, gives the new group four
of the 12 delegate positions with
each person having half a vote at
the Philadelphia convention next
ADA also won six of the 22 posi
tions on the Democratic Central
Committee. Mr. Hildreth will be
the national committeeman and
Mrs. J. Borden Harriman the na
tional committeewoman, a post she
has held for many years.
To vote, all that is necessary Is
to appear at a polling place, state j
that you are a Democrat and have!
lived in the District for two years
and don't vote elsewhere.
Polling places are Willard Hotel;;
Pythian Temple, Ninth street and
Massachusetts avenue N.W.; 1352 U
street N.W.; 5323 East Capitol street.!
141 B street S.E.; 826 Bladensburg
road N.E., and 409 Seventh street'
