Truman May Have Helped Stevenson By ED CBEAGH CHICAGO «v—You can bet your ottom dollar he never intended that way, but Harry S. Truman may have done Adlai Stevenson a favor by trying to keep him from etting the Democratic presiden- al nomination. If this sounds preposterous—like aying you help a man's dental r ork when you kick him in the eeth—well, it is an oddity. Maye one of the great ironies in re- ent political history. It figures this way: Four years go Truman stumped the land for Itevenson. Stevenson lost. There are those — and Stevenson may well be one of them—who hold the /lew that the Democratic ticket would have run better If Truman ad kept quiet. This reporter happened to be long on Truman's 1952 whistle- top campaign. And it must be aid that while the then President rought out a lot of cheering mul- tudes he also attracted lots of atcalls. There even were some hrown eggs in a few places. Rightly or wrongly, there were and presumably still are many eople to whom "Truman" Is almost a bad word—symbol of corruption, communism and crony- sm. There are millions of others, f course, who believe no such hing. But in the opinion of most Steenson advisers, Truman for all us good intentions didn't do the 952 nominee any good when he stamped his endorsement on Steenson. The candidate then became in le eyes of many, and of Republi- an orators in particular, the Truman candidate. And so Stevenson emained in the view of many de- pite repeated efforts to declare ndependence. This year, or at least at this tage, Stevenson has no such prob- era—thanks to Harry Truman's pposing him. With his nomination practically ssured tonight, Stevenson can go jefore the voters as his own man, r at least not as Truman's man — something Averell HaiTiman wouldn't have done if Truman's ight to get HaiTiman nominated had been successful. Another boost Truman may have given Stevenson: calling him "moderate." The "moderation" lable could help Stevenson with voters who thought he was far over on the iberal side four years ago. Any benefit Stevenson might leap, ironically, from Truman's ipposition could be lessened if Truman decided to let bygones be >ygones and wage an allout campaign on his behalf. Just now he's not in a mood to do so. And the Itevenson people are in a mood right now not to press him to do so. Miranda Hitless In Tenth Game BALTIMORE Wl— Baltimore Oriotes shortstop Willie Miranda's tick at the piste continued all had Wednesday night as he wont hit- iess in his tenth straight game. Miranda, who is batting .218, hasn't had a hit since AUK. 4, when ic went 1-4 against the White Sox. Since then he's been at bat 32 times with nary a single. Wednes- 2 More Complaints Of Hubcap Thefts, Two more complaints of huh- cip thefts wei'e among pilfering reports booked by the police Wednesday evening. Donald Morrison of 909 McKin- day night against Washington it was the same old story: 0 for 4. He's the only Oriole who has played in all 112 of the club's games. He has 81 hits in 371 at bats and has driven in 31 runs. ley Blvd., operator of the Mather-Morrison stationery firm, and Fred Gramley of 2128 Wyckoff St. each reported the theft, of tour hubcaps from their respective 1956-modeI cars while they were parked in the Riverside parking lot. In each instance, value of the hubcaps was estimated at about $100. George Miller of 800 E. Fourth St., filed with police a description of the bicycle of his son, stolen from the yard of a neighbor. He said the name "Richard" was inscrib- ed on the cross-bar of the M- cycle. Clarence Huber of 2213 Mar- quctte Dr. Informed police at 7:45 a.m. today that a ventilator glass had been broken during 1h« night in the c«r of his son, Richard Huhcr, while the vehicle was parked in front, of their home. The glass apparently was broken to gain entrance to the locked car, he said, but nothing wad taken from it.
