ABSTRACT
The article discusses the widespread dissatisfaction prevailing among southern liberals against the leadership of the Democratic Party. The coming trip of Adlai Stevenson, a U.S. political leader and lawyer, to address the Georgia legislature and to confer with Governor Herman Talmadge of Georgia has brought this unrest. Georgia liberals point to the record of Stevenson's sponsor in Georgia. In 1947, Talmadge attempted to seize the Governorship of the state by force, and was thwarted by the State Supreme Court after a tenure of about two months. Southern liberals contend that Northern counterparts are less than well-informed about Southern problems.
