(UP)— The question of whether Vice Pres- dcnl Jclm N. Garner is nn evil old man \\ho plays p:kcr, drinks whisky and baits labor became a part of the 1940 pre-convcntion campaign today amid a tutmiit of •uigry discussion. A 'considerable sect!en of Congress is incensed by those charges made by President John L. Lewis 3f Ihe Congress of Industrial Organizations. But Lewis hit not only at Gamer >ut at the entire conscrvalive wing f the Demccralic party. He prnc- icnlly challenged them to put heir man—any of their' men—in he White House next year. New Dealers were slow lo com- nent on the extraordinary situation rcated by Lewis' remarks. After •owis finished, Chairman Mary T. Vcrtcn (Dem., N. J.) of Ihe house abor committee told him: "Thank you, Mr. Lewis, for your cry fine contribution to this mcel- ng." But she made the same remark liter the teslimcny cf each witness. One comment was made by a ranking New Dealer—Attorney General Prank Murphy. When the x:\vls statement was read to tilm ic guffawed and said: "That's too loquenl to comment on." Hardly lad his comment been carried cut ivcr the news wires, however, when Gnnicr has become the syfnbol of conservative Democratic rebellion against the other «ing of Ihe political machine which helped elect President Roosevelt in 1032 and 1930. Lewis' public remarks before the house labcr committee reflected In some degree an ineffectual whispering campaign which preceded the 1932 Democratic National Convention nt which Publisher William Randolph Hearst sought to obtain the presidential nomination for Gamer. Tlic Texan never took public notice of (he whispered reports of his personal habits. He refused comment yesterday. But a naticnal magazine which might have been suspected of supporting hfa presidential candidacy in 1332 appeared one day with a life story which abruptly stated that he did not drink. The incident excited some comment here. Today's Judgment of the ellcct cf Lewis' blast en Gamer's nnti- thlrd tcrtn candidacy for the 1940 Democratic presidential nomination varied from (lie cautiously expressed belief that it would make no difference lo emphatic assurance that It wctild deliver the ncmination and Ihe election lo Garner. Sen. Morris Shcppard (Dem.. Tex.), who endorsed a petition supporting Garner's presidential can- 1 dldacy, took ancther lack and an If Garner drank whiskey, played I»kcr or was evil, the voice of one highly respected in circle.'; where such practices are decried would stoutly defend him charges. against these "I do not know what the vice president has done regarding nny labor attacks in Congress," Slieji- pard said yesterday when told of Lewis' attack. "But as to his pcr- scnal habits, Mi-. Lewis is entirely under a mis-npprehcnsion." The Texas house delegation drafted a defense of Garner and repudiation of Lewis. When the stalemcnt was read on the house llccr, members—both Democrats and Republicans—rose and cheered for two .minutes. Rep. Clare E Hoffman (Rep., Mich.) Immediately demanded action on his resolution for an investigation cf Lewis. But Rep. Thomas Ford (Dem., Calif,) asserted lie didn't see why the house was so Indignant when It had permitted one of its own members— Rep. Dc*cy Short (Rep., Mo.)— to call President Roosevelt an "egocentric (megalomaniac" during house debate. When they learned of the Lewis altack, several scnalors approached Garner and cftercd to proper," said Sen. William ir King (Dem,, Utah). "False as hell," snapped f!ep. Lindsay C. Warren (Dem., N. C) of Ihe Lewis charges. "Lewis has raped the Democratic parly nnd is preparing to return lo his first love, Uic Republican party," remarked Hep. c. Arthur Anderson (Dem., Mo), "ivtth the hcpc that the Republicans would take him over, and quickly." The altitude In congress seemed to be of shocked surprise, but comment generally reflected Ihe position cf legislators on the general question of labor and Lewis rather ihan a change of slancc lo .meet the situation created by Lewis' remarks. Lewis cpencd up with a charge that the house Republican minority and "a band of 100 cr more renegade Democrats" was out lo hamstring labor. His shot at Gar- ncr was net on personal habits alone, "Yen kno»- the Genesis of this campaign against, labor in the house of representatives Is not hard to find," he told tlic labcr committee.
