VOL. 71--No. 44 ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE LAS CRUCES, NEW MEXICO, FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 25, 1951 CENTRAL PRESS PICTURES PRICE FIVE CENTS Democrats See Only Truman As 1952 Candidate ' DENVER, May 25 I/P) -- President Truman was the only can- d i d a l c in sight today as the Dcm- Dcratic National ·committee met to pick its 1952 Presidential nominat- ing'convention site. Although Philadelphia was still bidding, Chicago had the inside track for tlie convention, expected to ho held the woek of July 21, 1052 -- two weeks after the Republicans meet there to name their nominee. National committee members inuile it plain individually in-interviews und collectively in cheering DENVER, May 25 Democratic Natloiial committee voted today to hold It* 1953 presidential nominating convention In Chicago, William-SI.

Democrals who wound up a 26- stutc party convention here yesterday left no doubt that they have recovered from the first effects of the President's firing of Gen. Douglas MarArthur and intend to carry the fight to the Republicans in an effort to brand the GOP as the "war party." Secretary of Agriculture Braii- nan led the assault on MacArthur here. In a windup speech last night in which he gave the'party'faith- ful a "Taft anjf Martin; McCarty and Cain" refrain which ho ob- vluusly hoped would ' rival the "Martial Bartoit anil'Fish'"'line developed in 1940 by the late Franklin' D, Roosevelt. Nnme.s Martin The Martin Brannan mentioned is the same Roosevelt named --Rep. Joseph Martin of Massachu- .setls, House minority leader. He was described by Brannah as "a long time isolationist" who "wants to enlarge the war" against Red China, proposed by MacArthur. Former Reps. Barton and Fish, New York Republicans, have passed out of the political picture. Senator Taft f (R-Ohio), by all odds the Democratic choice for the Republican presidential nomination, was the chief object of Brannan's attack. The cabinet member said Taft had opposed the Marshall plan and the Atlantic Defense pact but now wants to risk world war by going nil-out against China. Bljr Doubt Brannan laid to Senator McCarthy (R-Wis) part of the responsibility for developing what the agriculture secrctai-y said was the "bid doubt" technique of casting reflections on the administration's off oils to combat communism. Of Senator Cain (RWash); another member of what Brannan described as "an off-key quartet If there ever was one," the agriculture secretary said that the Senator was 'not' satisfied just to enlarge the war -- he says declare war on Red China." .

Crony Ex-Truman Ordered To Jail WASHINGTON. May 25 (#'-John Maragon, who used to be a frequent caller at the White House, went to jail today for lying in the Senate's "five per center" inquiry nearly two years ago. The one-time Kansas City boot- alack Is due to serve an 8-to-2-l- month sentence. He went off to jail after U. S. Dist. Judge Jennings Bailey turned down a plea ihat the sentence he suspended. Edward J. Hayes, Maragon's at- lorney, culled the Greek-born Maragon "only a scapegoat" in the investigation of influence peddling. Maragon, who once was a friend of President Truman's military aide, Maj. Gen. Harry H. Vaughn, icard his lawyer's plea for mercy with bowed head. TOKYO, May 25 --(/Pi-- Allied tanks and troops today slashed across the 38Lh parallel at two more points in their officially designated all-out offensive to hunt down buttered and retreating Communists. The new crossings kept up pressure on the Reds, who already were baLtling an Allied spearhead now thrust four miles Into North Korea on the east central front. Field dispatches said the new crossings wore made on the western front north of Seoul and on dumdum. front Both northeast of these tank-infantry teams withdrew to South Korea by .nightfall. "The 38th parallel means nothing to me," said L.L. G.en. James A. Van Fleet, commander of tha U. S-.Sth Army.. . . Crosses In- I'eraon · " · He showed he meant it by crossing into Red Korea himself. Van Fleet visited a tank and infantry task' force.. It was sitting soltrily as a huge road block north nf the border astride the Reds' escape route from the east central front. He said his army's tactics of pursuing; the Ileus into their own territory was a gamble but is paying off."
