Politicians Have Chicago Field Day

A , # *

First Time Voters Talk
To Several Candidates


(Continued from Page 1)
KERR headquarters were full
of friendly people. We confronted
a small man with a staff badge on
and asked for Kerr. We told him
we were representing 600 Michi-
gan voters and he threw his
arms around us and led us into
Kerr's room. The Senator wasn't
The small man told us he was
Mr. Harrison and very impor-
tant. He pointed to the Field
Museum. "See that? That's Sol-
dier's Field where they have the
He told us to come back later
that afternoon and he would ar-
range an interview with Kerr. As
we left the 18th floor we ran into
Senator Kerr. He made an ap-
pointment with us for nine the
next morning.
We went from there down to
the 11th floor where Averell Har-
riman was being promoted. We
asked there if we could talk to
Harriman. The gentlemen we
talked to said we couldn't then,
but told us to go back tomorrow
Just in case.
* * *
WE DECIDED to try Kefauver
again. His headquarters was in a
state of pandemonium. T.V. cam-
eras everywhere. About 200 peo-
ple crowded about a small open
space. We asked what was going
on. "Nancy is on television." We
peered over a few shoulders to-
ward the open space.
All we saw was some more
shoulders and television cam-
era. We found a Kefauver com-
mitteeman and told him we
represented 600 Michigan vot-
ers. Then we asked for Kefauv-
er. He got on the phone and
called the senator's secretary.
He told her we represented the
Young Voters Club of America. We
didn't correct him. The secretary
took our phone number and gave
us just in case. She said she would
try to arrange an interview. We
At nine th enext morning we
went back to Kerr Headquarters.
Mr. Harrison met us and told us
that Mr. Kerr wasn't in. We sat
down to watch T.V. We sat there
for 10 minutes when Kerr ar-
rived. He came over to us and as-
sured us that he was a friendly
Oklahoman and was glad to see
us back.
We asked Kerr whether he fa-
vored increased aid to Germany.
He informed us that he thought
we should "shop at the counter of
foreign aid." We asked him if he
thought Germany was a good buY.

"We should protect our country
* * s
WE MULLED this over and
asked about Franco Spain. He said
that Spain could give us a good
deal. We shouldn't try to change
their internal policy. "Value re-
ceived is what counts."
After a bit of sparring, we
pinned the Senator down on
compulsory FEPC. He thinks
that any Federal bill would be
in violation of the Constitution.
He is all in favor of civil rights,
however. He does not think that
these rights can be obtained by
purely educational means and
intends to "investigate the mat.
ter thoroughly."
We thanked the Senator and
went down to nine to see Sen-
ator Russell. On the way we called
Kefauver's secretary. She was
working on the matter-call back.
We found Russell on the way to
a T.V. show. We dragged him and
asked him about FEPC. He agrees
with Kerr.
Senator Russell turned us over
to Earl Cox, past national com-
mander of the American Legion.
Cox said he had campaigned thru
45 states with Russell and could
speak for him. He said the Sena-
tor Russell doesn't think that we
should give any foreign aid unless
we get "value received.",-
We asked Cox about Franco
Spain. I;e told us he knew exact-
ly how far Madrid was from Trip-
oli. We asked him if he approved
of Franco's domestic policy. He
stated that he couldn't see any
"fundamental ideological differ-
ence between Spain and us. They
don't like communists either."
* * *
WE LEFT the ninth floor and
called Senator Kefauver's secre-
tary again. She was still working
on it.
We went back to Harriman to
look for "Honest Ave." We were

told he was meeting delegates
at the Blackstone Hotel across
the street. We went over there
and were greeted by a Harri-
man staff member. We were
told that we would have ° to
wait. We sat down.
Presently a tall, gaunt man car-
rying a large briefcase came into
the lobby. He looked distinguished
in a terribly tired sort of a way.
A bosomy woman rushed up to
him screaming "Averell, you look
wonderful." We wondered what he
looked like when he looked bad.
We interrupted Harriman and
asked for an interview. "I'll be
right back, sit down." He was
back within five minutes. We
asked him about FEPC. He is
strongly in favor of the FEPC leg-
islation now in effect in New York
State, which, he said, "is not as
Russell calls it, shot-gun legisla-
tion. It refers only to economic,
discrimination against racial, re-

ligious and national groups."
This type of legislation which
Harriman prefers to call "en-
forceable" rather than "compul-
sory" is in effect in nine states
and "in thousands of cases
which have been brought up for
mediation, only about five have
been actually brought to court,
and these were settled to every-
one's satisfaction."
We thanked him and he walked
toward the delegates room. He
turned around and informed us
that he wanted the same sort of
party as the northern young Dem-
ocrats wanted. He turned away
again and then came back. "I'm
the only candidate who has stood
firm on New Deal policies right
down the line. I am the only can-
didate who hasn't compromised
with them." We thought, as he
left us, that his refusal to compro-
mise had cost him the nomination.
We gave up on Kefauver.
