Robert A. Taft arc laughing up their sleeves these days. It's about a rule put through In tho 1944 Republican national con ventlon controlled by the forces'.of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, lonjf^ Taft rival. The rule stipulates Uiat only seating contests affecting dct- egates-at-large may be presented to the convention for settlement. * * « THE RULE WAS not- strictly adhered to In the 1948 convention which gave tho New York governor a second presidential nomination. But Sen. Taft has indicated he will Insist on Its application at the coming convention In Chicago If he does and Is uphold in com mittees expected to be dominated by Taft supporters, the contests between him and Gen. Dwlght D Elsenhower over 77 delegates from five southern spates would be re duced to embrace just 18 delegates —four each from Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi, and six from Texas. * * * OTflEHWIBE.- the scrap would take in the entire delegations from those states—Georgia 17, Louisiana Ifi, MUslsalppl five, and TOCUM 38— plus two district delegates from Virginia. Eisenhower would be expected to benefit more from this broader field of contention, since Taft forces largely control the state convention and state committee machinery which are supposed to settle district delegate contests.
