Dewey Will Be Influential

air of finality about Governor Thomas E. Dewey’s statement
that he’s out of the 1950 New York governorship race.
There’s no reason to believe Dewey has thus eliminated
himself from the presidential sweepstakes for all time. But
he has unquestionably bowed out as a 1952 GOP possibility.
His action means, first of all, that the New York delega-
tion to the 1952 Republican convention will be controlled
by somebody else. But insofar as Dewey has jiersonal in-
fluence with his party in New York and the nation, he will
undoubtedly seek to use that weight at nominating time.
The governor is realistic enough not to imagine he could
employ it to achieve a third straight GOP nomination for
himself, especially now that he has put himself outside the
active political circle. Everything suggests he will try, how-
ever, to promote the choice of a candidate who shares his
generally liberal views.

IN this purpose he will be aligning himself with other pro-
1 gressive elements in the Republican party. If Governor
Warren wins a third term in California and Governor Duff
puts his hand-picked candidate over for governor of Penn-
sylvania, this wing will have a strong nucleus.
Who the progressives’ candidate will ire is of course
’way up in the air. Both Warren and Duff are themselves
in the running. There’s persistent talk that Dewey favors
General Eisenhower and will throw all his strength behind
the general. DcWey has dropped no hint to supjwrt the
This much can probably he said safely: Dewey and other
top figures in the GOP liberal camp will buck the nomina-
tion of Senator Robert A. Taft of Ohio. The governor has
no love for the Ohioan and the feeling seems to lie mutual.
Warren, if successful, is unlikely to put his powerful Cali-
fornia delegation behind so conservative a man as Taft.
Duff worked for Taft in 1948, but only after his first choice,
Senator Vandenberg of Michigan, got out of the contest.
His natural bent is the other way.

]\JO question, the progressive GOP forces would be stronger
in 1952 if Dewey came to the convention as a third-
term governor in full control over the huge New York dele-
gation. But it would be a mistake to underrate his influence
simply because he has withdrawn to the sidelines.
Dewey has a clear record as an excellent administrator
at Albany, as a top vote-getter both in New York and the
country. He has a name that must be reckoned with. Either
at his present 48 or at 58, the governor would be a powerful
factor if he chose to campaign again for high office.
No seasoned politician in either major party is likely to
write Dewey out of politics permanently until he has reached
the retirement age.

across the tennis court on legs
like long tanned sclssor-bladcs. She
Just managed to get her racket on
Miss Oraydon's scorching return.
Then from deep In the comer she
brought off an almost Impossible
shot. The ball cleared the net with
a scant Inch to spare, a little white
rocket exploding at Miss Gray-
don's feet. Miss Oraydon's shoul-
ders moved helplessly and she j
shook her head.

The point gave the auburn-
haired girl another game. Miss
Graydon, beaten lgnomlnlously on
her own service, began batting
balls to her opponent.
Bill Jarvis, on the fringes of the
spectators, clapped decorously. It
dldnt occur to him, at the mo-
ment, that he was practically a
one-man cheering section. He did
not notice the asides and glances
that passed between the young
women who watched the match.
A flunkey from (he Inn—Look-
out Crest Inn where, Bill had been
scandalised to learn, rates started
at $25 a day—had propelled an old
lady's wheeled chair to a point
from which she could comfortably
view the finals of the Intra-mural
(emits tournament. The ancient
one had sat quiescent near Bill
while Miss Graydon. a determined
but outclassed spinster-type, took
an unholy shellacking.
Now. however, she spoke,
"Well, young man." her voice
was unexpectedly strong, "I'm
glad somebody's got the decency
to give that girl a hand."
The old woman's eyes were like
slerl bullets. Their awareness,
Bliveness, contrasted strangely
with cheeks withered like prunes
and old lips rather ridiculously
"Oh." lie said, somewhat star-
tled. "I thought she rated it. Darn

And reeelved only a smattering of
applause, as the fella says. But"
—disapproval thinned thBt sur-
prisingly able tone—"let the Gray-
don female win a point and they
fall all over themselves. Hits is a
partisan crowd, young man."

"You were going to tell me why

about Hildy Sands. As guest of a

"Well, that's that.” The specta
tors, melting away, distracted the
old lady's attention. “Run up to
the Inn, will you, young man?
And send back one of those bell-
hops, that I've never yet seen hop,
to push me!"
Bill laughed. "I'll push you my-
self, Mrs. -
'Tasker. Mrs. Jake Tasker." The
shrewd light-gray eyes twinkled
at him. "Never heard of me, have

"On the other hand." said Mrs.
Tasker, as he began wheeling her,

"Humph! Questionable literary

know. Seeing I’m her, or is it
she'? Never could get that straight..
But 1 ground out 40 novels and
not a one of 'em fit to light the

again, prodigiously. “Sentimental

"Oh, she doesn't like tennis.
Said she'd have a nap while I
watched the match.”
"You're probably wondering why

Mrs. Tasker waited a second.

nowadays. But I don't dish dirt,
BUI Jarvis. Unless there's suffi-
cient reason. You, however, look
J ike a good guy. Tact is, yourself

ily. I think, are about the only

telry. The rest are a pack of snobs.
And. for my money, you could also
spell that'with an T. Slobs!”
"I don't get you, exactly,” Bill j
"You will. But you'd get some-
thing else from somebody else

twist on it, no doubt. So 111 tell

provision in state law which gives
one cent of the gasoline tax to
county commissioners for rural
roads and can be spent only for
materials and labor.
This enactment by the law-
makers nets Canadian county

counts for the network of good

EDMOND. June 23 — (Special)—
Dr. W. Max Chamr*rs, president
of Central State college, has ac-
cepted an Invitation to preside as
chairman over one of the princi-
pal study groups of the national
conference on evaluative criteria
for teacher-education at Indiana
university, June 28 through July L
Dr. Chambers is president of the
Oklahoma Parent-Teachers associ-
The conference Is under the

stion, and the

(NEA)—Hassil Schcnck is pres
ident of the Indiana farm bureau
federation. He owns and operates
a 320-acre grain and stock farm
near Lebanon. Ind.. northwest of
Indianapolis. But an awful lot of
his time is spent on farm bureau
business—at his Indianapolis of
fice, around the state, testifying In
Washington or at ATBP head-
quarters In Chicago.
Indiana doesn’t have the system
of farm bureau control over county
agents and government agricultural
extension programs found In other
mid-western states. Hassil Schenck
suys he Is Just as happy to operate
under the Indiana system. He
therefore has no interest In the big
Washington fight over legislation
designed to divorce the department
of agriculture from partial farm
On other major farm bureau
programs, Schenck goes along. He
has opposed the Brannon plan,
and built up a pretty good support
from Indiana Republicans and the"
Democrats who hold the same view.
Schenck says, however, that he
believes there has been too much
emphasis on this discussion of prioe
supports. His contention Is
price supports alone do not
a farm program.
He reaches In his coat pocket and
pulls out a card. It has a few
typewritten lines on it. Hopefully,
you wonder If here is a man who
has done the undoable and written
a farm program on a postcard. Be
For Instance, he believes that
there must be sound monetary and
fiscal policies for the whole govern-
ment and private business struc-
ture. For without them, there could
be no basis for exchange of farm
products on the market place and
no incentive to produce them.
Similarly, Mr. Schenck lists good
federal debt management as es-
sential to farm prosperity. He be-
lieves, nevertheless, that the con-
gress should enlarge commodity
credit's lending authority by an-
other $2/100,000,000. And he wants
farm credit policies liberalized.
* * •
]l*n, SCHENCK endorses the
I” reciprocal trade agreements
program as necessary to aid the
export of American farm surpluses.
And he favors negotiation of fur-
ther international commodity
agreements, like the wheat agree-
ment now In operation.
Farm bureau co-ops are strong
In Indiana and they compete with
private business. The state chamber
of commerce battles the farm
bureau on the so-called tax ex-
emptions for co-ops, yet Mr.
Schenck fights back. He is par- *
tlcularly strong for continued and
extended rural electrification ad-
He favors extension of marketing
agreement systems and production
adjustment s y s t e ms—marketing
quota s—to stabilize agriculture.
Crop Insurance Is still in the ex-
perimental stage but he lists It as
a necessary or at least desirable
The established agricultural ex-
tension and soil conservation pro-
grams are on the Schenck list.
He lists as necessary for further
study and control the subjects of
distribution of farm products and
transportation of farm products.
The farmer gets only a few cents
out of the cost of a loaf of bread
or a bottle of milk, and the other,
non-farm costs need bringing down.
Inter-city heavy duty trucks should
pay a higher share of highway
costs because they are ruining farm
roads. The use of airplanes for
transport of farm products Is Just
beginning and needs encourage-
Also on the list are three research
programs on the production,
marketing and utilization of farm
products. And he wants a sound
nutritional program developed be-
cause that determines what the
farmer raises. Finally, Mr. Schenck
believes full employmelnt must be
maintained to provide a cash
market for farm products.
