DORIS FLEESON:

Democratic Green Light

MATTER OF FACT
By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP

WASHINGTON-Sen. Estes Kefauver (D.,
Tenn.) is finding that while he is get-
ting much personal attention, plenty of
newspaper space, and chore requests to
speak around the country than he possibly
can fulfill, he cannot get a grass-roots or-
ganization started until President Truman
speaks out.
The Sen. from Tennessee is almost lit-
erally snowed under with mail and in-
terviewers. Preachers and college presi-
dents especially seem to have adopted him
as their candidate, and they are by no
means the least-effective support an am-
bitions politician can have, but the
bread-and-butter boys are waiting for a
firmer signal from the White House.
Men in the higher echelons of the party
who have had power or prestige appoint-
ments from Mr. Truman also are reluctant
to appear to be in haste to desert him.
Kefauver hopes to do something to corect
this situation when he calls on Mr. Truman
on Saturday. There is little reason to be-
lieve that the President will do the crime in-
vestigator any favors of this or any other

Aiten Camps
AS MUCH AS detention camps in a free
country are to be detested, it would
seem that Alice Bogdonoff- in her Alien
Camps editorial yesterday has overlooked a
rather important factor in this particular
provision of the McCarran Act.
Although Attorney General McGrath is
going ahead with the construction of the
camps, it does not mean that people who
"might conspire with others to commit acts
of sabotage or espionage" are going to .be
immediately thrown into such places. I
don't feel Miss Bogdonoff made this point
clear.
The act does provide that the round up
of potential spies and saboteurs would
take place if "the United States should be
invaded or war should be declared or an
insurrection should take place."
Now it doesn't take a crystal gazer to
realize that in each of these three cases, the
security of the nation is in a direct and im-
mediate threat of danger. The danger of
allowing spies and espionage agents be at
at freedom in a country during wartime was
clearly pointed up during World War II by
the action of the Fifth Column in Norway.
I do feel that Miss Bogdonoff, in her zeal
to protect civil rights, is advocating mea-
sures that would lend themselves to a worse
fate than "detention camps" in wartime-a
fate that might see the United States go
down to a complete defeat with loss of all
our treasured heritages.
-Ron Watts

kind; in fact, the evidence is all to the coli-
trary.
Nonetheless, if Mr. Truman does not
intend himself to run, and if he hopes to
elect a Demorcat to succeed him, he has
got to allow the sun to shine on all poten-
tial candidates of his party. Gen. Dwight
D. Eisenhower and Sen. Robert A. Taft
(R., O.,) are front page to the point of
monotony; it is absurd of Mr. Truman to
expect that he can dust off some favorite
at the last minute,.and overcome the lead
of either one in six weeks' campaigning.
It is easy to realize that to Mr. Truman,
and, probably, to many, Kefauver and other
aspiring Democrats-Sens. Lyndon B. John-
son, Brien McMahon, Hubert H. Humphrey,
Robert S. Kerr, and Govs. Adlai E. Steven-
son of Illinois and G. Mennen Williams of
Michigan-seem immature and untried.
President Roosevelt - planned it that way.
Throughout his long tenure, he craftily
chopped down any potential rivals.
There are a few exceptions, men in their
middle years who have grown into great
stature here, such as Sen. Richard B. Rus-
sell (D., Ga.). Dick Russell would be rated
by all his colleagues as outstanding presi-
dential material, but his state and civil
rights stand bar him, and he knows it. He
would not even consent to become majority
leader last year when it was his for the tak-
ing.
In general, however, the Roosevelt-creat-
ed famine of "prime" candidates prevails.
The Democrats have almost got to jump over
to their freshman class, and hope that peo-
ple will accept youth and drive, with mod-
erate experience, as the cure for what ails
Washington.
As Democrats discuss the situation-
and they are discussing little else as the
word gets around that the President's
physician has advised him not to run
again-they seem rarely to turn to elder
statesmen. True, Vice President Alben
Barkley is campaigning vigorously for
1952, but, it is argued, only for veep again.
A few cynics add that they guess so.
Midwest Democratic leaders will meet in
Kansas City in about two weeks to discuss
the President's stalling technique of putting
favorite sons in the primaries, and the gen-
eral political trends. Their discussions
should give some grass-roots indication of
how long the party will wait upon Mr. Tru-
man to make up his mind.

Washington Merry-Go-Round,

WASHINGTON-Favorite political parlor
game in Washington these days is com-
posing imaginary cabinets for President
Robert Alphonso Taft. Under the rules, the
theoretical Taft cabinet of the future is
chosen by the usual method from among the
leading men who have most valuably sup-
ported the Taft forces insthe grim pre-
election struggle. Some typical results of
this new pastime are perhaps worth record-
ing."
For Secretary of State, General of the
Army Douglas MacArthur has the lead.
No one has played so eminent a role in
the Taft pre-convention campaign. No
one, seemingly, has contributed more im-
portantly to the mature Taftian theory of
foreign relations. As the leading global
thinker in the-Taft camp, the general has
a prescriptive right to this post.
For Secretary of Defense, Col. Robert R.
McCormick wins hands down. The self-
confessed inventor of the rifle, a noted stu-
dent of military strategy, and above all, the
owner of the crucial Illinois delegation, the
colonel looks like a natural.
For Attorney General, Sen. Joseph R.
McCarthy is strongly favored. The Mc-
Carthy campaign against alleged Com-
munist plotters in the government has
greatly strengthened the public support
for Taft. As Attorney General, McCarthy
will make sure that ,no subversives 'infil-
trate the new administration, and even if
his methods of pursuing this approved
objective become a trifle excitable, Presi-
dent Taft will be there to hold him in
check.
For Secretary of Commerce, Sen. Owen
Brewster is first choice. As the great sena-
torial friend of Pan-American Airways, Sen.
Brewster takes a lively interest in civil
aviation, control of which centers in the
Commerce Department. And as the leading
Taft lieutenant in the Senate, Brewster
ought to have his pick of jobs.
For Secretary of Labor, Rep. Fred Hart-
ley, co-author of the Taft-Hartley act, is
almost automatically named.
w N . e
ABOUT OTHER PLACES there is some
dispute. Many favor Sewell Avery for
Secretary of the Treasury, as a conspicuous
meeter of pay rolls, but it is also objected
that this will make two members of the
cabinet from Illinois. Again, most players
of the game agree that the Interior De-
partment ought to go to the Right Wing
Western Republican who can break Gov.
Warren's control of the California delega-
tion in Sen. Taft's favor; but there is argu-
ment about who this will be.
These names, at any rate, are enough to
convey the general idea of the Taft cabi-
net game, which is strongly tinged with the
customary malice of politics in an elec-
tion year! Obviously no one really expects
Sen. Taft to construct.a cabinet of the sort
listed, although some of the men mentioned,
such as Gen. MacArthur, might well be
called to serve under President Taft.
* * *
NONETHELESS, these imagined lists of
Taft cabinet members conceal a point of
enduring meaning for the coming election.
The truth is that all of the men named
above will have most important claims on
Sen. Taft if he wins the Presidency.
On the one hand, the Senator does not
really agree, so far as the record shows,
with all that is said and believed by these
eminent supporters of his, even including
Gen. MacArthur. He can proclaim his in-
dependence of all of them; he can even
repudiate some of them, before conven-
tion time comes. He will then stand forth
as an unusually capable midle-of-the-
road leader, particularly with regard to
domestic policy, and his great experience
and visible integrity will have full value.
On the other hand, it will be immensely
hard for Sen. Taft to take this course, of
edging away from many of the chief men in
his camp. But if he does not do so, it will
also be very ,hard for independent voters,
and even for large groups of Republicans to
support a candidate who has been carried
to the Presidential nomination on this par-
ticular group of shoulders. This is, in fact,
the biggest single problem that Sen. Taft
has to face; and next to Gen. Eisenhower

himself, it is also the biggest asset of the
Eisenhower movement.

M AYOR WILLIAM E. BROWN, JR. had a surprise for the Univer-
sity this week-from out of his sleeve came a proposal for a ten
percent amusement tax on all admissions over a. dollar. The tax plan
seemed directly aimed at the University's lucrative football gate re-
ceipts-Mayor Brown estimated $100,000 would be added to the city
coffers from grid ticket sales alone, about $50,000 more from lectures,
dances, concerts and other athletic events. Significantly enough, there
was little if anything in non-University amusement which would be
cowered-movies are exempted by the dollar-minimum stipulation.
Mayor Brown insisted his pet project wasn't aimed at the University,
but repeatedly pointed out that the city provided many services to the
University community without collecting any direct taxes from the 'U'.
University officials declined comment-but raised the question of
its legality. It was predicted by one law school professor that a court
test would be necessary if the City Council, which is now studying the
proposal, passes it. No other Michigan community levies such a tax.
FIRE HAZARDS-State Fire Marshall Arnold C. Renner urged
immediate razing of five University classroom buildings and eventual
replacement of five others. University officials quickly agreed, but
pointed out that because of the classroom shortage the buildings would
for the most part have to remain in service till funds were available
to replace them.
SL REQUEST-Student Legislature also has a joker up its sleve
this week-a surprise request for the right to name all the student
members on the Student Affairs Committee, which some legislators
termed as the student government on this campus. SAC may be on
the verge of reorganization, and SL apparently felt it important to set
down in black-and-white what they regard as one of their rights.
However, there appeared virtually no chance that this sweeping re-
quest would be granted-although a reorganized SAC might have more
SL representation.
NEW BUILDINGS-University hopes for state approval of a pro-
posed $12,500,000 new medical building and a $4,000,00 library addition
went up a notch this week, as Governor G. Mennen Williams endorsed
the proposals, sent them on to the State Legislature. However, GOV.
Williams did lop $1,000,000 off the University's original operating bud-
get request.
PREtIDENTAL. RACE-Ike got talkative. After months of silence
and thousands of yards of newspaper speculation, the nation's top dog
in the military and the politic allowed as how if the Grand Old Party
wanted him, they could have him. Democratic smiles over the prospect
of Taftian opposition rapidly vanished.
At once a deluge of prognostications hit the wires. Out of it all
Iemerged no sure bets, several possibilities: 1) the Eisenhower band-
wagon will roll across the Republican convention floor much like the
Willkie railroad more than a decade ago; 2) California's amiable dark
horse, Earl Warren, will ease into the limelight after a Taft-Ike dead-

lock; 3) Harold Stassen will garner enough support to trade in a for-
midable band of delegates for a cabinet job; 4) Mr. Truman will
plump for Chief Justice Vinson; 5) video spar Estes Kefauver, who
will enter the race next month, has the strongest chance if Democrats
break precedent and reject the regal nod.

ACE IN THE HOLE-Newspapermen spotted Capt. Kurt Carlsen,
his first mate and their dying ship as the greatest thing since Floyd
Collins lay under a huge boulder in a Kentucky cave. On bpth sides of
the Atlantic, avid readers followed the two seafarers as they at-
tempted to bring the crippled freighter, U.S.S. Flying Enterprise, into
England. A snapped towline and a howling gale ended the two-week
struggle against the sea as the brave ship sank into 109 fathoms of
water. The heroic seamen swam to safety.
PHST-IMWLSC-Winnie came to Washington. He was a trifle
older, but he was still taking energetic puffs on his cigar and articulate
stabs at peace. After four days in the White House, he joined Mr. Tru-
man in proclaiming a solid front against the Red menace, pledging
solid support for plans for an all-European army. A big development:
the British government will have the say-so in time of emergency
whether the United States can use atomic bomber bases in England.
THE WAR-Truce talks on the peninsula called Korea passed
their half-year mark-still deadlocked. A United Nations spokesman
said the Red negotiators were acting "like schoolgirls who had a secret
and weren't telling their friends." But on the western front, Commun-
ist antics were far from high school calibre. At least four Chinese
battalions launched drives on the South Korean First Division in the
bitterest ground action since November.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

WASHINGtON-Before last week's press
conference, throwing General Eisenhow-
er's hat into the New Hampshire primary,
his backers did some careful checking to
make sure whether he would be the winner.
It was Gov. Sherman Adams of New
Hampshire who finally reported to Sen.
Cabot Lodge that Ike would carry his
state. But to back up his own political
hunches, Adams invited a Pennsylvania
editor, -Robinson Mcllvaine, editor of the
Downingtown, Pa., archive, to make a sur-
vey of grass-roots New Hampshire senti-
ment. Results, which exceeded Gov.
Adams' expectations, were:
Around 60 per cent for Eisenhower.
Slightly over 30 per cent for Taft.
Undecided, 10 per cent.
Ike's 2-to-1 advantage over Taft was re-
flected about equally among men and wo-
men voters. Significantly, Harold Stassen
didn't get a single endorsement, though
quite a few Eisenhower adherents admitted
they were for him in 1948.
The survey showed clearly that Ike can
expect his greatest support from younger
voters in New Hampshire, while older
people, chiefly farmers and business men,
favor Taft.
Significantly, the Merry-Go-Round poll
of the Republican nominee is now running
about the same as the poll conducted for
Gov. Adams, despite the fact that the poll-
ing methods are not similar. The Merry-
Go-Round poll shows Eisenhower running 55
per cent in New Hampshire against the
Adams poll of 60 per cent.
Taft, according to the Merry-Go-Round
poll, is running 29 per cent in New Hamp-
shire; according to the Adams poll, 30 per
cent.
The Merry-Go-Round poll is conducted
by postcards, and you can vote in it by
mailing a card to your favorite Republi-
can candidate, care of Box 1952, Washing-
ton, D.C.
NOTE--Aside from New Hampshire, and
in the nation at large, Eisenhower is running
49 per cent in the Merry-Go-Round poll;
Taft 36 per cent.
-- IN JUDY COPLON'S PURSE -
'WTHEN Judy Coplon, the Justice depart-

during her date with her Russian diplomat
boy friend, she had in her purse certain con-
fidential FBI-CIA reports, one of them per-
taining to a famous Rumanian, Nicola

it probably stems from the fact that he has
been able to retain some of the most skillful
lawyer-lobbyists in Washington.
For he has sent presents to Communist
Premier Ana Pauker of Rumania, and,
most amazing of all, has been able to get
$2,400,000 out of Rumania from the Com-
munist government.
Meanwhile, this column has obtained a
copy of the confidential report found in
Judy Coplon's purse when arrested. Dated
May 11, 1948, and written to J. Edgar Hoo-
ver by Alan R. McCracken, acting director of
Central Intelligence, essential portions of
the report read:
-FRIEND OF NAZIS -
"lIALAXA began his career in Rumania,
following graduation from the school
for civil engineers in Bucharest, by opening
a small workshop for repairing railroad
cars. By means of bribery of railroad offi-
cials, he was able to build up a sizable for-
tune, after which he undertook the manu-
facture of arms and munitions.
In 1933, he began a campaign against
the import of war material into Rumania,
demanding the cancellation of contracts
that had been entered into with the Skoda
plant in Czechoslovakia. At this timelhe
utilized the services of Puiu Dumitrescu,
then private secretary to King Carol.
Through bribery of Dumitrescu, he was
able to establish relations with Carol and
Madame Elena Lupescu.
"During 1937, Malaxa began his collabora-
tion with the Nazi regime in Germany. He
established close relations with German in-
dustrialists, including Albert Goering, the
brother of Herman Goering. Malaxa gave
Albert Goering an interest in all his com-
panies, including the Resitza Iron and Steel
Works.
"At about the same time, subject began
to subsidize the Rumanian Iron Guard, a
fascist organization .. "t
- FRIEND OF COMMIES -
AFTER the coup d' etat of 25 August
1944, Malaxa attempted to leave Ru-
mania, but was unable to secure a passport.
Within a short time, however, he had es-
tablished good relations with the Rumanian.

secured the return of three of his factories

regime, and was given in addition compen-
