Thomas E to Air> any viisl 'o De.voy's aides tell newsmen privately the Republican Senator Chapman Revercomb's handling of the displaced persons issue is the real reason for this decision. The official explanation being ? a ,!° ,",Y ^ a , st , V^ginia, however J.-.tnat the slate couldn't be fitted "?*?', th S. GOP presidential candi- dijtp s .Hinerary; that "from top io bottom the national ticket wants Hoycrpomb re-elected. u o d , ays aw ?£ from lhe November. 2 election, Republicans generally, concede they are going to need every seat they can get to keep the reins in the Senate. Their loss ofi,crmmnnd there would scriousiv handicap a new administration's legislative program. lln line, with this, Dewey has 51^? d some obvious personal dJIforences to campaign for other L.OP senatorial candidates. Senator Joseph H. Bali of Minne- spta, who bolted the Dewey-Brickor ticket in 1944, is a case in point. But Dewey is said io view the Revel-comb race in West Virginia in a different light. The background is this: ; Congress last session enacted a l)i» to admit some 205,000 Euro- pr-aans displaced by the, war Critics said the bil Idiscriminated against Jews and some Catholics. Dewey asked Revercomb, as chairman of a judiciary subcommittee, to try to have the law changed. Revercomb denied the measure was discriminatory and sal tight. Thus .Dewey is. said to feel that n he now gives any personal help to Revercomb — as he has been under. strong pressure to do — he would be put in the position of fleaging on the question of opening the immigration 'gates , wider for the European refugees.

Wade said one reason for the warehouse labor shorage is that laborers can make more money picking the cotton than they can working in the warehouses.
