Primary Tuesday.

favorite son" Harold E. Stassen. Stassen, former Minnesota governor,

Early Peace'
May Decide
Hs. TEntry
KEY WEST, Fla.-(P)-Chalr-
man Frank McKinney of the
Democratic National Committee
said yesterday President Truman
may not "choose to run" for re-
election in the event of an early
peace in Korea.
McKinney told a news confer-
ence he believes the President
would then feel he has achieved
his major goal and would step
aside without any attempt to dic-
tate a possible successor.
"I AM FR*ANKLY of the opin-
ion, and. it is only m personal
opinion, that this decision will be
predicated on the success or f al-
ure of resolving the Korean situa-
tion satisfactorily," McKinney
said, ending a two-day series of in-
timate talks with the President at
the winter White House here.
McKinney's comment, per
hap the most significant yet in
the nation-wide guessing game
over Truman's intentions, came
ds Ohatches from Korea re-
portd that Communist news-
' n with the Red truce delega-
tion were talking of cease-fire
agreement in three or four
Communist newsmen have fre-
quently reflected the views of the
official Red delegation through-
out the long-drawn truce talks.
* * *
MCKINNEY'S suggestion pro-
vided a new twist to widespread
speculation over any set of cir-
cumstances that might induce
Truman not to run again. Political
bigwigs of both parties have ad-
vanced numerous theories, but un-
til yesterday none had hit on the
relatively simple explanation that
Truman might be guided by the
outcome of the conflict his oppo-
nents have dubbed "Truman's
The statement by McKinney
served to turn the spotlight back
on Truman's oft-repeated as-
sertion that his only desire is
fo peace.
McKinney told newsmen he has
hopes the President will announce
his decision before May. 15 when
the Democratic Executive Com-
mittee meets in Chicago to select
a keynoter and other officers for
the national convention in July.

This is nearly three-fourths of a.

BY PERTINENT factors, the
body in part referred to a dubious
constitution of the senior class,
by which architecture students
were permitted to take part in
literary college senior activities.
However, Judiciary could find
no, trace of the constitution's
legality. It had been turned ups
by Phil Berry, '52, SL treasurer.
Another factor referred to was
precedent, which at times has al-
lowed architecture student parti-
cipation in literary class activities.
But on other occasions, architec-
ture students have been barred
from these activities.
When contacted last night Law-
rence declined to comment on the
action. It was known that he had
already gone to some expense in
the preparation of his- campaign.

One encouraging sign comes from the admissions office-

last year, indicating that an anticipated enrollment drop may
not materialize.
