Silent Opposition to Penn

By EDMUND C. TAYLOR
Evening Lt&otr Btaff Correspondent
ST. LOUIS, June 16. The selection of
Vance C. McCormlclc, of Harrlsburg.' ns
chairman of the Democratic National Com
mittee will be ratified by the National Com
mittee when that body meets this after
noon, despite the efforts that are being
made to organize opposition to him.
Tammany, the Cook County delegation
and other members of the Old Guard have
endeavored to organize opposition to Sic
Cormlck within the National Committee, and
today claimed, SO of the 4S votes that would
be cast for national chairman.
The Administration leaders, however,
claim that no more than two votes will be
cast against the selection ot the Fennsyl
vanlan, They argue that snce the Pres
ident controlled the convention so absolutely,
going so far as to narrio all of the com
mittees,' he will have little trouble lining
up the National Committer foi MoCormlck,
despite the efforts of tht opposition.
The Old Guard of Pennsylvania and the
recalcitrant members of the New Jersey
.delegation, under the leadership of James
A Nugent, of Newark, have placed the
fight against, the selection of McCormlck
Into the hands of Edward It Young, of
Youngstown. O., National Committeeman
from Ohio. Young will lead whatever op
position develop , against the selection ot
McCormlck at today- meeting.
