On the other hand, there were reports circulating In Congre.« of a possible triple-play move by President Truman to quiet the GOP opposition. These reports—and they weren't vouched for by anyone in authority —were to the effect that If Acheson quits Mr. Truman might ask Chief Justice Fred VInson to leave the Supreme Court and take over the state portfolio. If this happened, it was said Attorney General McGrath might be in line for a court appointment and Clark Clifford, former presidential legal adviser now in private practice here, for attorney general.
