Bridges has said till along he did not want to continue as floor leader) that ho preferred to be chairman of the Senato Appropriations Committee and temporary president of the senate. His position was that he would keep the floor leadership only if necessary to avoid a party fight. A conference, of nil Republican senators will bo held hero Jan. ; to choose a floor leader and to fill otfier posts. Sen. Watkins (R-Utnh) predicted •fter TafCs announcement that the Ohloan would be elccicd floor leader unanimously. Sen. Mundt (R-SD) anld he felt! there was "an honest desire" by both Taft and Elsenhower to work together. "They both realize," he told a Reporter, "that If they do, the administration will be successful and that fighting would hurt both the party and the country." As floor leader, TnK will hold & position that provides the principal Unison between the While House and the Senate on legisla- ^ Mve matters. r Borne of his friends havo suggested that this will provide the best k rrteans of avoiding any public elastics between Eisenhower anit Taft, because It will give them a chance to work out disagreements In private. ••' • mlse bo naught yesterday.
