THE POST-STANDARD, Syracuse, N. Y., Monday, April 27, 1959 'Humphrey or Stevenson/ Drummond Says 6 Columnist Talks at SU Either Adlai Stevenson or Sen. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota will be the Democratic candidate for President in 1960. chief tor the' New York Herald Tribune, He spoke here at the 2oth anniversary banquet of the Syracuse University Scfcool Jouraalisn at Suns Hall on the campus. Drummond. for many years one of ibe leading writers on national and international affairs, also nredicted that the "Gallup Poll will nominate the Republican candidate." He said Vice President Richard * would be tossed over by party faithful if the polls showed Gov. kelson A. Rockefeller be a more popular candidate. It was noticeable to the scores oi news execuuves in trie audi erice that Drummond did not mention Sen. John Kennedy . of ring is here and so is the sun Treat your eyes to the luxury of Fine Sun Glosses properly fitted at LINDEMEHS " 440 S.

Our every aim is to con-tinue to merit that trust and confidence. contender for the Democratic nomination. Before he made his prediction Drummond said no one can accurately predict such a thing as a nomination of a candidate. But his choices carry the weight of a man who has spent a long time on the Washington scene. ' He explained that the elections last fall, in which the Democrats won throughout, the nation by a landslide, merely carried forward a trend that has been evident since 1946, the last time the Republicans had clear majorities in the Senate and House of Kepre-sentatives. He said it is perfecuy possible now for a highly popular Re^-publican to be elected President by a huce majority, and yet the Congress can be strongly Demo cratic. . This means that the Democrats, despite their overall national strength and popularity, cannot rely on that popularity to elect their candidate for president • ' ■ Gives World Views On other major topics of the day Drummond said: 1. Berlin' will capture the headlines in' the next' few. months. Russia created the cr. things will never go back to what they were . before the crisis, 2. The United States lag, in the missile development program dangerous. The U. 'S. has mass ive deterrent power ei deter Russia.

Earlier in his talk, Drummond stressed. that to match and mas ter the challenge of Communism we need: A more iniormea pun lie, better- newspapers,., better newsnanermen and better schools of journalism-He said newspapers must more interpretive reporting and 1 writing.
