TUESDAY, APRIL 29, 1952 BLYTHEVILI.E (ARK.1 COURIER NEWS FIVE 'Ike's' Managers Forecast Clean Victory for Him in Massachusetts By RliLMAN MOHIN BOSTON Wi—Another major battle for republican presidential dele- Kates and popular support began Jn Massachusetts today, and Gen. Dwighl D. Eisenhower's managers forecast the election would give him "a ciear-cnt victory" over Sen. Robert A. Taft. The senator's managers said they were optimistic but made no last- minute predictions. A regular down-East "no'theast- er," bringing rain and cold, was expected to cut back the total vote. Even so. political analysts believe it may triple the 1348 figure of 124,000. A hot pre-election campaign, plus the use of a preferential ballot this year, has genera- Gen. Clark Faces Bad Weather r ... . , Grounds UN Criticism from Congressmen Ridgway Appointment Draws Mostly Applause From Capitol Hill WASHINGTON W.—Gen. Matthew RLdgway's appointment to succeed Gen. Dwight Eisenhower drev/ mostly applause today, but Gen. Mark Clark, who gets Ridgway's old command, faced criticism in Congress. In the Pentagon, the top-levo! reassignmenis—Ridgway from Par East commander to head of Allied forces In Europe, and Clark from chief of Army Field Forces to Far East commander—were viewed bj Gome officials as; 1. Results of a decision by President Truman to side with Gen Omar Bradley instead of Eisen^ hower in choosing the new com mander of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) forest. 3. Rewards to both Ridgway and Clark for past jobs well done. The criticism of Clark came from Sen.

Bitter criticism of th maneuver was voteed by member of Hie Tex-as National Guard, whic! suffered heavy casualties. "I was in thnt area with th Navy at the time of the Rapid erosekig," Long said, "and I kno 1 that many o€ the oficers wit whom I associated d& not thin too hiehiy of Clark's rfu-&ty as field commander. Commander Needed "What we need tn Korea now "i a field commander, not n diploma r.nd I hnve some reservation about the Clark appointment/' However, Sen. McFurlond Arizona, Hie Democratic leader said he does not look for any ser ous Senate attempt to block eithe Ridgway's or Clark's new ass ments. The Army believes no Con gress action is needed for th shift. Nerthw Texcts senator, Denr crate Connally or Lyndon Johnson would comment on Clark's appoin meet. Gen. Bradley, chairman of the TT.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, reportedly favored Ridgway as NATO chief. Eisenhower, who steps down about- June 1 amid a boom for his nomination as Republican candidate for President, is known to have wanted his chief of staff, Gen. Alfred M. Gruenther, as his successor. Grnenther to Slay Gruenther will stay on as Ridgway's chief of staff. Th« Idea that Truman was rewarding Ridgway and Clark was Wisconsin Solon Dies in Hospital WASHINGTON «>l—Rep. Reid P. .lurray (R-Wis> died today- in Bethseda Naval Hospital. He was 64. He was serving his seventh term n the House as a representative of Wisconsin's Seventh District. Murray entered the hospital April 16. explained in military circles this way: Ridgway's handling of the Korean War helped qiriet the storm, kicked up by the dismissal of Gen. Douglas MacAvthur as Far East chief, which threatened to drive the administration into serious political trouble. Clark's adroit withdrawal as Vatican ambassador-nominee did much to quiet the ruckus over proposed creation of that post. Quick approval of Truman's choice was expected in other NATO nations. Except for the Commu nists, praise for Ridgway was wide spread in Europe. Reds in France called Ridgway "(he man of germ warfare" and said his appointmen was "a brutal defy to European public opinion." Little Objection Voiced No strong objection to Ridgway's appointment 'was voiced in Con gress. Generally it was applauded although some lawmakers — like Sen. Wiley (R-Wis)—seemed dis appointed that Gruenther did get the job. Gruenther favorably impressed Congress member when he testified on foreign aid. Wilay, senior Republican on thi Foreign Relations Committee, said "With his intimate contacts Lisbon and other NATO confer cnces and as an understudy fo Eisenhower, Gen. Gruenther fittei into the position ideally. " Rep. Shafer (R-Mich), of th House Armed Services Committee commented that Clark was inor familiar with European condition and Ridgway with Far Eastern a fairs "so they shift them Just th opposite ' way." Rep. Vorys (R Ohio) end Rep. Smith (R-Wis voiced similar criticisms. Chairman Richards (D-SO of th House Foreign Affairs Committee said that while he was "partial to Gruenther" he thinks Ridgway "is a great man for Europe as he has been in the Pacific." Eisenhower said, "Things will be in good hands—we could not do better." ted Intense Interest. Preferential voting permits the people to ballot directly for the presidential candidate, as well as for his delegale- candidales, Two Allotted to Each Massachusetts has 33 Republican convention delegales. Two each already have been allotted to Taft and Elsenhower, ami six will go to the convention uninstructed. The remaining 28 will be elected today. Both candidates have full slates in the 14 districts. Some of Eisenhower's backers have claimed he would win all 28. but others place the figure at 20 to 24. If their . forecasts are accurate. Eisenhower will draw almost even with Taft in the box-score of dele gates won up to this point in national campaigning. An Associated Press tabulation, based on known alignments of delegates, put Tuffs total of 265 and Eisenhower's at 4. Taft's managers, however, laim more than 300. Taft Works Personally Taft campaigned personally In a irce-day swing Ihrough Massachu- etts last week. On the ballot, the ames of his delegate-candidates re designated as "pledged" or favorable" to him. Eisenhower's are not, since he id not give formal consent to hav- ng Ills name entered In this prim- ry when the filing was done. To ounteract this apparent dlsadvan- age, his managers said they have ent out thousands of sample bal- ots identifying his delegate-candt- ates. On the preferential ballot, the direct "popularity' contest," all cames must be written in. The attorney general recently ruled that nick-names would be counted as 'alid votes for "lice" or "Bob."
