EDSON IN WASHINGTON GOP On Trumdn: Just Wait BY S. 11UKTON HEATH ALBANY. — Dewcy slr'nleglsis would have been delighted If the Democrats had' ronomlna'ted Henry Wallace for vice president. They profess to feel that Wallace could have attracted no votes that President Roosevelt will not get anyway, and would have alienated enough to have helped Governor Dewey's cause materially. ' •''••"_ But don't get the Idea from this that the choice of Senator' Truman discouraged tlie Dcw'ey entourage. Quite the contrary'.When the President's he-ls-my-belovedtfrleiid letter sent Wallace's' prospects tumbling to about two : degrees above freezing, almost •'everybody nround the stntc capitol held 'liis breath lest by Inadvertence he should chill the ensuing boomlet for.Senator Truman. • Before the campaign is very old, tlie'public is going to be reminded of Senator Truman's 'political-debts to the notorious Pendergast machine In Kansas City.

(UP)— This is a story Involving a little 12- year-old girl, a retired -'rear' admiral jhl a classified" advertisement. • Little iJivada Gni-rett of near runway worked hard in the cotton I fields chopping cotton to earn her $5'.GO. But she didn't hold on to it tight enough" She lost it while walking down tlie'streefUi Conv/ay. Lavada was broken 'hearted. Then someone suggested that she advertise her loss. So Lavada went to a Conway paper and inserted a small ad in" 'life"'lost' ahd'Tou'ri'd section." Then she waited, hopefully. Well, Lavada wailed for a month, arid'no answer. And then, out of the .clear sky, came a letter from Tyler Cluverius, a retired Navy rear admjral now president of the Worcester Polytechnic-Institute of Worcester, Mass. Enclosed was a check for $5.00. No one knows how the kindly rear adriiiral'obtained a copy 6("the pap^r. But Lavada doesn't care, she; has her hard-earned money back. ' ' '.

' " ' The Truman committee hearings and reports unquestionably - would have been combed anyway for ammunition in supporfof the G. O. P. 'contention llVat li PreMdeht Roosevelt 'has badly- mls'maha'ged war production. But the blessing that the Democratic Convention''"placed iijxm tlie 'Missouri''senator's work Us counted-upon to make-thls'-mate- rial the more devastating. It will no longer have to be presented' as the findings of a statesman who; though a Democrat, might be considered hostile to Mr. Roosevelt. It now becomes a reluctant indictment drawn by the • Democratic parly's alternate choice for president by one of the three men with whom President Roosevelt said he would be glad to run for re-election. The line of attack opened up by Senator Truman's selection is broader than that which would have been available If'Vice President Wallace hiid'won ou't. " , In _the latter case the major argument would have been that Mr. Wallace himself is unfitted in capacity and temperament to succeed to the presidency if anything should happen to Mr, Roosevelt. • ' G. O. I', FIGURES'-ON'A TRIPLE-THREAT" ATTACK With Senator Truman the approach ha'd'three spearheads:' 1. Truman's indebtedness to one of the worst big city machines in recent political'history. 2. The findings of Trumnn that coil be used against Mr. Hoasevclt's conduct of the home front, 3. The contention that when the Democrat discarded 'Henry Wallace nnd his four years 'of experience they knocked ,the props ; out from under their own 'don't-change-horses argument for ft fourth term. Even 'Senator Biirkley, with the record or -his recent short-lived break with the President and their harsh Interchange df Invective, did not seem to the ueweyites to offer them so much ammunition as docs Truman. It cannot be said Hint the Republicans around here were fully satisfied with the doings of Ihe Democrats In Chicago. They would have preferred another Mndlsoh Squnrc Garden fiasco, like that which gave President coolldge a walkover In But they aren't complaining. The southern delegations came through better than the G. O. P. dared hope.-And the nomination ot Senator Trimmer was-pleasing,, nnd— foolishly or not can: be 'determined In Novemljef-thc- D'eweyftes' seem very cheerful.
