PAGE TWO FLYTHEVTU.E. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, AUGUST «, 1951 Vinson. Re-Enters Capitol Hill Talk Of Candidate for President in '52 •WASHINGTON, Aug. 6 W*>—New . talk ol Chief JusLIce Fred Vinson as a possible presidential candidate has chopped up among Capitol Hill Democrats. Vinson, as & Supreme Court justice, isn't in K position to .say anything one way or another, but some who profess to be his friends say the chief Justice could be persuader! to leave the court and make the race even If Democratic chances don't look too good next year. The chief justice is regarded as one of those who might be picked by President Truman to take his place as the nominee if Mr, Truman decide* he .won't run again. A Kentuckian and a former member of Congress, Vinson would be calculated to cool the southern revolt that threatens to be more serious next year than it was In 1918 when President Truman lost four states to the State* Rights ticket. Senator Kefauver i D-Tnm) .said yesterday at Portland, Ore., that he thought Mr. Truman could get the Democratic nomination nnd be elected in 1952 If he wanted the job. But, Kef a tivcr said, lie was not campaigning for Mr. Truman. Vinson a Conservative While Vinson is looked upon as something of a cmwcrvallve, he probably would be acceptable to most of the "?'air Deal" wing of the party because of his record of support for the Truman domestic and foreign policies. Mr. Truman continues to keep his best friends guessing about what he Intends to do. As an example, his cryptic statements about Gen, Dwlght D. Elsen- hower last week have b«n subject to about as many Interpretation!! as there are politician* to talk jtbout them. News Cont«r*nce "Word" husla.sllc political rooters. Senator Lodge m-Mass) Joined Mr. Truman told a White House news conference he doesn't believe Elsenhower's duties will interfere with any Interest Elsenhower m»y have in policltal matters in 1952. The general has been mentioned *s a possible candidate for both thf Republican and Democratic nominations, To many this Presidential statement seemed to clear [he road for Eisenhower backers to boost thfli /nan's chances. On the other hand, Mr, Truman said he Is sure Elsenhower will place duty to his country ahead of everything else and th*t he hopcA the general will continue the mag- i nificient Job he Is doing In Europe as long as necessary. This seemed to indicate to some there Is doubt In the Presidential mind that (he European defennc task etui be completed in time foi a 19&2 political campaign. PrFKldfiU's Thinking Senator Schoeppel iR-Kas) told a reporter he suspects the President "was thinking In term* ol Elsenhower's continuing in hln present position." Although Schoeppel's home state Kansas may send an Elsenhower delegation to the Republican national convention, the senator Isn't listed AS among the general's en- the Eixenhower-for-Pmident ranks Jast night. Asked during • TV interview iNBCJ whether Republican supporters couM get the general Aft their party nominee, Lodge replied: "yes, I'm optimistic."
