Chautauqua Men's Club in Meeting Woodcock Is Speaker al Group's Dinner Ike's Stature Continued from ?*|» L 2900: Stevenson 18; Sen. Richard B. Russell of Georgia 33; Douglas (otherwise not identified in most precincts) 55. The only names on the ballot were Stassen and Slettedahl on the Republican side and Humphrey on the Democratic, Slettedahl Is a St. Paul attorney. He said he favors MacArthur with Taft his second choice. Eisenhower's strong showing in Minnesota follows by a week his solid victory over Taft in the New Hampshire primary. Taft Is regarded In Wisconsin as the leading eandldate in number of prospective delegates and his managers say the state's April 1 vote will be a key'test. Wisconsin law prohibits write-in votes. Since Elsenhosver's name is no! on the Wisconsin ballot, there vill be no chance of his duplicat- ng his Mlnnsola showing. Eisenhower kept up with Minnesota returns at the Paris headquarters but made no comment. Jn La Crosse. Wis., whore boll spoke last night, Taft could not be reached but Stassen said he was pleased with Ihe Minnesot; vote and "surprised Sen. Taft is running as weak as he is." President Truman's wlthdrawa from the June 3 California pri mary strengthened the belief in many Washington quarters that he would not seek re-election. It also spurred a move by Sen Humphrey to organize a northern slate "fair deal" voting bloc foi the Democratic national conven (ion. Humphrey, who disclaims any personal presidential ambition, said he hopes to build the group about: the 2G-vote Minncso la delegation he won yesterday.

Seek Reoeal of Auto Loan Curb McKinney wired California Demo crats yesterday, on Ihe Presi dent's orders, that Truman wanted his name withheld from the slate's primary, as well as primaries of other stales. This left: California Democrats in a dither. The state has 68 convention voles and leaders were pu/- xling over which way to turn; Kefauver now is the only Democratic candidate there. The political pot was bubbling merrily : Paul Hoffman said in Paris he has advised Eisenhower to give up his Atlantic pact military command and go after the GOP nomination. Hoffman is a leader in the Eisenhower campaign. In Charlotte, N.C., Eisenhower and Taft supporters differed sharply over division of North Carolina's 26 convention votes. Taft forces said they had 18 delegates pledged. Eisenhower backers listed 10 for Eisenhower, 10 for Taft, and six uncommitted. Gov. Stevenson, in a magazine article, attacked views expressed by Taft without mentioning Taft's name: "To label the Korean war 'useless' and to hold President Truman, responsible is not only to forget the facts, but to risk that we talk about our present problems in the Far East out of context." In Tallahassee, Fla., Gov. Warren again challenged Kefauver to public debate. It was his fourth challenge, issued in a statement. In Springfield, 111., a MacArthur supporter asked the state supreme court's permission to put MacArthur on the Illinois primary ballot. United Slates Senator Hubert II.
