TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Is Earl Warren Still Postive He Wont Run for President? By JAMES MA K LOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Chief Justice Earl Warren can hardly escape some political indigestion if he ever tries to eat the words he used in saying he is not a presidential candidate. They were pretty emphatic. He said his decision was "irrevocable" under any "circumstances or conditions." President Eisenhower sounded pretty emphatic, too, back in early 1948, four years before he ran, in saying he wouldn't run. He said he was "positive." In 1952, before ne accepted the Democratic nomination, Adlal Stevenson said he didn't want it. But his statements, looking: baclt on them now, didn't sound as convincing as Warren's or Eisenhower's. He never quite closed the door. Whether Warren likes it or not— and he is reported to have told friends privately he doesn't like it a bit and won't change his mind- he is constantly being mentioned as the man the Republican? may have to call on in 1956. Warren made his Denunciation of political ambitions back in April 1955 when therp was still reason to believe Eisenhower would seek a senond term. It was before the President's heart attack made it unlikely he would, or could, run; again. j If Eisenhower doesn't run, andi if the Republicans think their only chance is with Warren, he will t- under heavy pressure to change his mind. He hasn't been asked publicly what he would do if his party drafted him in 1956. j The 64-year-old Warren, in politics since 1923 and three times governor of California, was made chief justice of the United States by Eisenhower in 1753. He issued the following statement last April after a nationwide poll reported he was the top choice of Republican and independent voters if Eisenhower decided not to run: "My name has been used as a possible candidate for the presidency. This has oeen a matter of embarrassment to me because it reflects upon the performance of my duties as chief justice of the United States. "When I accepted that position. it was with the fixed purpose of leaving politics permanently for service on the court. That is still my purpose. It is irrevocable. I will not change it under any circumstances or conditions. "Be they few or many, the remaining- useml years of my life are dedicated to the service of the Supreme Court of the United States, in which work I am increasingly happy," "Definite and Positive" Iwhen a "d r a f t-Eisenhower move got under way in 1947, the general said, "I don't want any- thing to do with politics." He went even further than that with a lengthy statement — on Jan. 23. 1548 — part of which said: ''My decision to remove myself completely from the political scene is definite and positive ... I could not accept nomination even under the remote circumstances that it was tendered me .... I am not available for and could not accept nomination to high political office." But after the 1948 lections, when he was r.gain being mentioned as a candidate in 1952, he sounded a little less "positive" than in 1948 and finally ran. Stevenson was governor of Illinois in April 1952 when he was being looked at as a likely Democratic nominee. He said .then "I could not accept the nomination" because he wanted to run for another term as governor. He kept saying that practically up to the moment he was nominated, and accepted, in the summer of 1952. But he is expected to announce in Chicago today he will try as hard as he can to be nominated by the Democrats again in 1956. Furs, Gems, Exemplary Conduct Mark Opening of Met's Season By CYNTHIA LOWRY NEW YORK (#>)—The opening of the 71st season of the Metropolitan Opera last night was a colorful pageant of beautiful clothes, sparkling gems, rich furs—and exemplary conduct. The high-style audience—most of them conducting themselves like bona fide music lovers—left the famed red damask Sherry's Restaurant over the Diamond Horseshoe almost deserted except at intermissions. The opening opera was Oflen- bach's "The Tales of Hoffman," a not-too-heavy opera which, included pretty girls, a pantaletted chorus line, light, love, laughter and dance. "Modish Work" W. G. Rogers, Associated Press arts edior, found it a "modish work for the modish audience." "It was grand opera but that didn't keep most people from having a grand time," reported Rogers. "It was the Met moving into the entertainment field." Although all the hi-jinks were confined to the stage side of the footlights, the premiere remained an extravagant fashion show.
