Vnttnt*n4ln f Reached After (hat meeting Tnft said the delegation, had reached a general understanding with Elsenhower that such assignments would lie checked through customary senatorial channels. L»si week, however, the senators decided that things weren't going u they had expected. So thay ar- ringed another meeting wllh El- »enhower. Taft said on a television program In Washington last night Ihora is too much confusion over who In each stite haa the final say on political appointments. The Ohloan added that ho nnd hto'OOP colleagues In the Senate feel very strongly .that they are tlw.onw who should b» consulted in most cases. He . voiced confl- ,.d«hcft that Elsenhower would go tlong wJth that view. "Most senators," Taft said, "feel T«ry strongly under the Conslllu- tlou that the advice and consent of-_th« Senate applies to all appointments that require confirmation.
