Labor Party Observers Believe Governor May Be Needed to 'Carry State for GOP ALBANY, (/?)--The New York slate CIO.s condemnation of the presidential candidacy of Henry A. Wallace was viewed in political circles here today as a "break" for both Governor Dewey and President Truman. Through its executive board, the state CIO adopted a resolution last night terming "irresponsible" the action of Wallace and his supporters in launching a .third party movement. The Marshall plan was endorsed in another resolution. The CIO board urged CIO unions affiliated with the American Labor party to withdraw t h e i r support from the party if it "persists" in backing Wallace. When Wallace announced his candidacy, at the head of a third parly, it was- widely predicted he would damage Dewey's chances of winning the Republican presidential nomination. The reasoning went thus: AL*I' Support Wallace would have ALP support, with its normal complement of approximately a hair-million votes, all in pivotal New York state. This would be enough to defeat Truman here no matter whom th/ Ronnhiipfinc; n o m i n a t p r l . Therefore, the GOP would not feel it had to choose Dewey in order to stand chance of swinging the j state info "tile Republican column, j But the action of the CIO ex-' ecutive board, in the opinion o f ! political analysts here, will c u t j deeply into the American Labor i party strength and leave the party i far less effective as a balance o f ! e Jll Have Same Birth Day Heed Named Commissioner Of City Jolice Muar E l e c t e d Council Head;'Donovan Named ·v'iiy AUoiTiey, Juolruc.s, Assessor Icy Oddity at Niagara Falls Each of till- children of Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Saucr of St. Cloud, Minn., was horn on Dec. 30, all within a two-year period hut at intervals of one year.

The nomination by A l d e r m a n Louis Vecchi, was opposed in discussion by Mayor George MrG.

Dewey will read his 7,000-word message personally to the legislature when it convenes for its 171st session tomorrow noon.
