WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, lf).IS Eisenhower Said 'Best Candidate' Sen. Johnston Says General is Right Man for Democrats WASHINGTON. March 17 ,i;p> —Sen. Olin D. Jolm.ston DSC one of President Truman's outspoken foc-i, regards Gen Dvvight D Eisenhower as the "best available, candidate" to unite the Democratic Party. He believes Iliat Eisenhower is an •^dependent" and not a Rcpubli- \Jolmst6n disclosed these views in a letter to \ n. B.iskin South Carolina Democratic chair-' man. He wrote that the South must take conceited action prior to the Democratic National Convention lo block the nomination of Mr. Truman. Otherwise, he said, "haml- pickcd Truman .supporters" will control the convention before tl\i South is organised. Johnston said he had cotiellld-.'d that Eisenhower is tlie best available candidate after confenin}; with Northern and Western Democrat.". He added, however, that he would support whomever. South Carolina Democrats decided to back. Organization Smishl First "The main tiling is to organize and get a candidate, (hen we must negotiate with the party leaders throughout the country for his acceptance. "Many .such leaders are already convinced that the party canno', win witli Truman. However, they "« unwilling to ask him to stei> aside until we can get a degree of unity within the 'party for some other nomir,ee.s, !n other words, we must take a. positive stand lor somebody. We. cannot afford to be merely anti-Truman." Johnston made no Mention of Elsenhower's recent statement that he would not accept a presidential nomination. He said Democratic administrations had advanced KLsenhower Co top positions in the Army in rec- ojjtjtion of his ability. ^During his years as chief of staff and since recent conferences with Republican party bosses," Johnston said, "he is convinced. 1 am sure, that lie could not live with Ihe Republicans. For many years he ha.s worked closely with" Democrat* in and out of Congress. Evidently, the program of the Democratic P.arty is acceptable to him."
