Special to The Daily
EVANSTON-In a straw vote
presidential preference poll taken
last night at the banquet meeting
here of the Big Ten Midwestern
Federation Conference of Young
Republicans' Clubs, delegates
overwhelmingly voted Sen. Robert
A. Taft their top presidential
Coming as no real surprise, the
action reflected the conservative
tone of the whole convention
which was evident from first ses-
sions on Friday, and is expected to
be strongly reflected in the con-
vention platform which will be
adopted this afternoon.
SEN. TAFT captured 71 per cent
of votes cast by 250 delegates,
while Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower
made a poor second place showing
with 21 per cent of thegdelegates
behind him. Gen. Douglas Mac-
Arthur finished third with 5 per
cent of all votes. Gov. Earl Warren
and Harold Stassen trailed the
field with 1.5 per cent each.
Although balloting was secret,
it was known that nearly all of
Michigan's delegation voted
their support to Taft.j
During yesterday's business ses-
sions delegates approved a consti-
tution which united the Big Ten
Young Republican's clubs and the
Midwest YR Federation into one
district organization. This action
welded the final link in the or-
ganization of a five district na-
tional conference of college groups.
Michigan delegate Ron Seavoy,
'53, was elected Secretary-treasur-
er of the district conference for
the coming year.
AFTERNOON sessions were giv-
en over largely to committee work,
and from a preliminary consensus
of delegate opinion, the final
platform wil be more an affirma-
tion of GOP "old guard conserva-
tism' than an endorsement of the
liberal wing of the party.
Michigan's delegation voted in
caucus early yesterday morning to
hold fast on their stand endorsing
compulsory state fair employment

(P)-An Allied spokesman today
said the Reds seemed to be side-

Russia's role in post-armistice
Korea until the prisoner exchange
issue is settled.
Lt. Col. Joseph J. Borchert told
correspondents that Communist
staff officers in the truce super-

hours Friday in discussing the use
of two words in the truce draft.
They bickered over the Korean
word for Korea. The Reds want
"Chosen,' the Allies, "Han Kuk."
The Communists agreed, however,
to the Allied choice for United Na-
tions, "Kuk Che Yon Hap."
MEANWHILE on the Western
Korean fighting front, Red troops
supported by heavy artillery and

Europe more than a year ago to

On a trip early this month to
Greece and Turkey, the newest
NATO members, Eisenhower re-
marked in Athens "I hope to come
back in the spring." He also is
known to have promised govern-
ment leaders in some other na-
tions of the alliance that he would
visit them again.
The tour probably would in-
clude visits to Belgium, Luxem-
bourg, The Netherlands, Norway,
Britain, Portugal, Italy, Turkey
If the general does plan to re-
sign and go home in late May, he
might use this last tour as a means
of getting the approval of NATO
governments for his replacement.

Retires with Hope He Has Served
Country Efficiently and Honestly
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-President Truman announced last
night he won't seek and wouldn't accept nomination for
another four years in the White House.
His announcement came, out of a clear sky, at the end
of a typically Truman give-'em-hell speech to a $100-a-plate
TRUMAN GAVE not the slightest public indication
that he favors any particular candidate for the Democrats to
run in his place this year - thus apparently throwing the
race wide open.
A spontaneous demonstration developed at the dinner for
Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois as the Democratic standard
Stevenson, flushed and apparently overwhelmed, said he wasn't
running for anything but another term as governor of Illinois. A
f or the presidential nomination, Stevenson said:
"I'll cross that bridge when I come to it."
Supporters of three avowed candidates-Senators Estes Kefauver
of Tennessee, Richard B. Russell of Georgia and Robert Kerr of
Oklahoma-immediately stepped up their campaigns.
RUSSELL WAS the.only one of the three to attend the big,
noisy dinner of 5,000 democratic officials and other party stalwarts
last night. The other two were out of town campaigning.
Russell said of Truman's announcement:
"I hope that it means a free convention."
Kefauver said at Hastings, Neb., that he would continue 'to
work hard to win the nomination.
Truman made his announcement with every appearance of
It was greeted by scattered cries of "No, no" from the food:
laden tables in the dimly lighted armory auditorium. Truman told a
reporter there was no chance "whatsoever" he would change his
mind and run.
PERSONS CLOSE to his car when it left for the White House
afterward said the President and his wife were in tears.
Truman made his announcement after a scathing assault on what
he called Republican "holier-than-thou" practices and a prediction
that the Democratic candidate-"whoever he may be"-will be
elected next November.
* * * *
READING FROM HIS OWN hand-written notes in a leather-
covered copy of his speech, the President told the diners and' a
nation-wide radio and television audience:
"I shall not be a candidate for reelection.
"I have served my country long-and, I think, efficiently and
"I shall not accept a renomination.
"I do not feel that it is my duty to spend another four years in
the White House."
MANY DEMOCRATS at last night's dinner expressed belief Truman's
withdrawal had left the race for the Democratic nomination wide open,
despite whatever preference the President might later express.
Senator Moody (D.-Mich.), for one declared:
"The picture now is wide open, so far as I can see."
Senator George (D.-Ga.), backing Senator Russell, his Georgia
colleague, for the party's presidential nomination, said Truman's
announcement "came like a bombshell."
Meanwhile, near Paris, Gen. Eisenhower's headquarters was
closed and the General presumably was asleep when news reached
here at 5 a. m. today that President Truman had announced he
would not run again.
Observers in Paris were confident that the President's decision
would relieve Eisenhower, as a candidate for the Republican nom-
ination, of some embarrassment he may have felt in running against
