'f FAGB, Sfassen and Taft Seek Ohio Votes Ufer't BoUot* May Count Heavily in Primary OH May 4 «XOT*BU8, o., April ». (UP) — ferold X.

Taft, on the defen- rive on his home grounds, (lie fight wu dangerous and unde.sired. The former Minnesota governor will begin a fast four-day campaign tour of Ohio, tomorrow by plane irom Dayton. Taft also will be on lh« delegate trial tor three days •tarling tomorrow at Ashtabula Siassen, primary champion by Tirtue of his farm support In Wisconsin and Nebraska elections, Is appealing for support from a radically different group of Ohio voters. He seeks to win 23 delegates from Ohio Industrial areas at the May 4, primary. The Mlnnesotan has lilt Tail at the point of his greatest strength or possibly fatal weakness, The silent Issue Hi the Ohio IlRht Is labor's jvow«d hatred of Tuft for his authorship of (he Taft-Ifartley labor Law. iMbor Act Passed Over Neither candidate hus o}H'uly concentrated on tills Issue. But If Stassen keeps his presidential bandwagon gaining speed with a win In Ohio, a portion of the credit of a Tsft defeat would go to the labor Tote. Taft Indirectly recognized this point when he berated Stnsscn Jor claims to liberalism. The .Senator, Ohio's regular GOP favorite son candidate, said Stassen did not stand for more freedom for the common man. Tlie'stakes in the Ohio contest mre high. StassenV stood only to gain when he entered the primary «arly this year. Now with victories In Wisconsin and Nebraska, a complete loss in Ohio would do much to deflate his cflinpMgn. Taffs pre-stige could be damaged beyond repair if he lost more than a handful of delegates. It would put a boom behind Inlk th»t Taft could not win if nominated In Philadelphia In June. And anything leas than a handful would jtlll represent a gain for Stnssen. Bogota Conference May Hold Emergency Session BOGOTA, Colombia; April 30.

Hopkins, chief union attorney, has laid an elaborate groundwork for an appeal throughout Uie proceedings, however, and U seemed unlikely lhat Lewis- tenacious as he is—would take sitting down a Jail lenience or even * stiff fine. Ooldsboroush was careful not to close the door on a lesser penalty for l/jwis. He asked for the government's recommendations, he snid. because it has lo "practicul Information" not available to Ilia court. Goklsborough must dcciifc tomorrow what to do about a temporary restraining order aimed at keeping Ihe miners in the pi'i. Hopkins argued lhat under the Tall-Hartley Law, the Justlc Department should ask to have it dissolved.

Lewis listened inipji.vively .15 i Ooldsboroiiah .said Ihe mine work- I ers had sought to sidestep ihe I standing candldaits for the SenaU, placing the stress of Ihe Senate vole on individual popularity. Election of deputies was more along political lines, with less Individual popularity involved. De Gnspcrl piled up huge majori- lics In such key areas as Home, Naples and Bar! and Ihe Inlands of Sicily and Sardinia.

He also swamped the Communists in Rome, where only last October the Christian Democrats 1 'ran second to Ihe Communist front In the municipal elections.

But there were men and women willing to turn their backs on the safe way of life and their faces toward new frontiers. All they fl-sfced was an even break. Ffcc enterprise is another way of saying "an even break." Free enterprise is the basic American principle of vision and personal initiative. Just give an American an even break—a chance to get ahead—and lic'll go on from there. But when government goes into business, in competition with its citizens, the American ideal of an even break is destroyed for government in business assumes special privileges that arc denied people in business. Take the case of government-owned jxwcr systems, for example. They pay few, if any, taxes; often get money from the U. S. Treasury at little or no interest; make up losses out of the pockets of the taxpayers. On the other hand, America's business- managed power companies are on their own. They pay their full share of taxes, and fair interest on loans. It's a tribute to American self-reliance that fax-paying, self-supporting companies supply over 4, 5 of the enormous amount of electric power this country depends on ... at the lowest possible cost. There are still new frontiers In clcctria living to be opened. And businessmen can do the job better than bureaucrats, • Lislen lo (he Klrclrlc Hour—the HOUR OF CHARM. Kverr Sunday, 4:30 P.
