Taft's Views May Still Be In Majority By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON Iff)—Sen. Taft can afford to be calm about the kind j of support he gives Gen. Eisen-j hower. He is one of those fortunate | men who no longer has to be 1 troubled by ambition. He has abandoned hope for the one job he desired above all others: the presidency. It's unlikely Eisenhower, if the general wins, could offer Taft any other spot he likes as well as his present job in the Senate. No other could offer him such a. forum for his views and opinions, which he likes ro express. Since his first election to the Senate in] 1938 it has provided him with a means of trying to persuade people to his views. And he has a following which shares his views. He's a spokesman for it And his Senate job—he was elected in 1950 to a six-year term— is safe for another four years. Ee's 63 now. The fact that the majority of the Republican Party, as represented by delegates to the national convention, turned him down in favor of Eisenhower doesn't necessarily mean the majority doesn't share his views. It may have chosen the general because it thought he had a better chance of winning in November, although the party has turned Taft down three times now—in 1940, in 1948 and in 1952—for a crack at the presidency. This does not seem to have made even a slight dent in his thinking. He has indicated in no way that he has changed. And he knows he represents the thinking of many Republicans who might have preferred him as a candidate. .For two weeks now at least there has been increasing talk— on an on-again and off-again basis—that he was going to confer with Eisenhower who has apparently been anxious to have him campaign vigorously. Several times, without committing himself to any promises of beating the bushes for the man who .beat him in Chicago, Taft said he wants to talk with the general to learn his views and what he'd do if elected. This hesitancy of Taft's about making any strong promises of campaigning between now anc election on a big scale leaves the <3oor open for him to decline such a speaking tour if he doesn't hear from Eisenhower what he wants to hear. If Taft stays out of it and Eisenhower wins, the general's supporters will, it seems sure, try to topple Taft from his present position of Republican leader in the Senate. Gov. Stevenson has very clearly tried to make the most of this gap between Eisenhower and Taft, which would include their followers, by speaking derisively about the two Republican parties. But because of his important position in the Senate, because it's a forum which suits him, and because he seems to have no other ambition for high office, Taft can afford to stay cool while Eisenhower seeks his support.
