SATURDAY, HAY i, was BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS IBTE PH2LES Senator's Daughter Honeymoons Extent To Which New Deal Was Involved Has Politicians Guessing BY HOn\KY DIJTCHKR (.'curler News Washington t'oirespoiidenl WASHINGTON, May 1.'—Senator Claude Pepper's huge victory in the Florida primaries has set politicians of all factions lo wondering whether tlie slice of Die Pepper bfii can be considered an Isolated jMnomenoii, unrelated to the pos- IWe (rends in other ureas, or 'hetlier it is a harbinger of further ictories for administration favorites In a year when Interest. In Nov- inber's result, is at least for the line being, subordinated to con- em over the fate of New Deal nntl nil-New Deal Democrats nl the iand.s of Ihe voters, The Florida primary was the 938 primary season's first elcnn- cut contest between pro- and nnli- dmlnlstratlon forces, but there were : few If any jwlitlclnns In Washington who had had any idea that Pepper would run ahead ol the combined vote of his four op- lonenLs. Pepper ' enthusiasts were resigned to the belief that the senator, would have'to engage In n runoff primary with whichever of his opponents drew the largest vote. The size of his majority is considered by many In connection with he fact that Congressman Lister Hill, also running as a New Dealer and a friend of wage-hour legisla- jon, previously had mopped up Ki Alabama's senatorial primary, florida find Alabama have liad the inly sentorial primaries in the South this year. Tlie unmistakable evidence that progressives can uc nominated and. elected in the stronghold of-conservative Democracy provides a large kettle of food for political thouglil and peculation. * * * Much Money in Campaign Charges have been made that a !reat wad of money was poured into the campaign to beat Pepper and that the WPA was flagrantly Mostituted in the New Deal effort to renomirmte him. If you assume that either or both charges *'ere true, you must also assume :nat the same factor or factors 1*111. carry weight in other state primary campaigns this year. Incidentally, New Dealers who were working.-, fevefishly behind • the' scenes for:..Pepper complained^ that they had little or no help"[ram National Chairman Jim Parley who had been counted on to dis- si>ade former Governor Davt jSiollz from entering the primary tl had failed lo do so. * * * No Wage-Hour Significance The Pepper victory was by no means part of a far-Hung endorsement of wage-hour legislation, since congressmen in Alabama ami Indiana won renomination generally, regardless of their positions on that issue or any other. This failure of Democratic voters to out any of the "ins" irrespective of the degree of support they have given various administration measures, is a curious phenomena — previously noted in the Illinois primary results—in the face of widespread belief that Inrge masses of voters are discontented It raises doubt whether any of the conservative Democratic members whom New Dealers would like to defeat this year-^uch as George of <?Eorgia', Smith of South Carolina i?|iil Tydlngs of Maryland—can lie Wslodged from their seats. Van Niiys of tadlnna, a Democrat who helped lead the light against the Supreme Court plan has been forced lo run for re-election as an independent—a doubtful expedient in political-minded Indiana. But that's because of his troubles with the McNntt-Town- send machine rather than any effort from Washington. * * a Dakota Ijiborite Beaten Nearest thing to a New Deal defeat was failure of Congressman Fred Hlldebranrtt to beat former Governor Tom Berry for the Democratic senatorial nomination in South Dakota. Hildebrandt was backed by the John Lewis-dominated 'Labor's Non-Partisan League and could have been expected to be distinctly more New Deaiish than Berry will if he is elected.
