BLIIHCVILLK (ARK.) COURIER Ta/t Has Always Been Republicans Leader -« By JAMES MAKI/OW ; .WASHINGTON l/fl — Ever since •'the Republican victory in November It has been taken pretty much for granted here that Sen. Taft could have the Job of Republi- ...can floor leader in the Senate for Hhe asking. He had been, In effect, the Republican Senate leader for years •anyway.' But the floor leadership In the next four years, when the ^Republicans are in the White J*House, will be one of the most Important Jobs In President Elsen- hower's -administration. *jThe Senate Republican leader will visit the White House regular: lj' for consultation, which Includes advice, on programs Eisenhower =\vants Congress to approve. When the discussion is over, it's up to 'the Senate leader to lead the Senate fight for what the President 'wants! | ^.:.But two weeks «go, more than a* month before the Republicans could take over, Taft exploded over Eisenhower's appointment of Martin P. DurVIn, a Democrat and labor union official, as secretary of labor. "Incredible," Taft said, denouncing it. This looked clearly like a break between the President-elect and •the senator. The Oluoan's flareup raised a question. Several, in fact. Could Eisenhower and Taft ever get along or, if this" squabble was smoothed over, would they split over something else later? Would It. b« better for Elsen- hower right at the start of the new Congress to have a showdown with Taft to see which of them the Senate Republicans would follow? Tafl Calmed Down Elsenhower said nothing about Taft's outburst, at least publicly. Taft seemed to calm down. And now Elsenhower has cleared the way for Taft to get the . floor leadership. Not directly. H« did It through lieutenants who announced Elsenhower would be happy to see Taft Ui the leadership. Almost Immediately Taft said he would seek the leadership, which Is by choice of the GOP. senators, not by presidential appointment. Until then Taft had been rather vague about what he Intended to do, as if waiting to see what Eisenhower would do, v , From a coldly political view, it would seem Eisenhower has everything to gain and nothing.. to lose by Ignoring Taft's leadership ambitions. | By not trying to block Tail, he has avoided,the possibility of bit- lerness and dissension right at the start of his administration. And. since Taft already has blown up once, he may be careful not to do it hastily again lest he appear iu the public eye as a man given to lerhper tantrums. . >AGE BLETM Woman, Facing Death from Hodgkins Disease, Is Expecting Child Soon • .'•••LOS'ANGELES W— A Los An- _;geles mother has decorated ' t h e i^lree and plans to spend a merry Christmas Day with her husband and three young sons.
