THUKSDAV, .U1NK 10, 1SM8 FDR, Jr., Score! GOP Legislature Late President'! Son Breaks Family's Long Anti-Truman Stand ' VnlUi X^'s^ S? „„„,.„ t WASHINGTON. Juil^'ia—UJP* -Franklin o. Roosevelt. Jr, has broken hi., famous family's «ml- liuman front. If President Truman is noml- na ed lo heart tl le Democratic ticket next July in p|,n a delphla. ilt> . ," wl " support him and the <*»• party platform. He slated his position this week in an address In Westchester County. N. Y- Yesterday he stepjwd over to Ashbury Park, N. J.. and In a speech before the AFL American Federation of Musicians, Franklin roughed up the Republican Congress and its leaders as though he already were stumping for Mr. Truman's election. "I am nnd shall remain a Democrat," Young Roosevelt said In Wcstcheslei. "I shall support the candidates, program and decisions of the Democratic Party." Politically sensitive Washington marked Roosevelt's public disavowal ot any Intention to boll the party and reflected that the young man not only inherited Ills father's mati\a name, but his sood looks and B knadi for politics. VOIIIIK men with political ambitions need regular party records. Franklin and his brother Elliott previously had been whooping it up for nomination of Gen- Dwight o. Eisenhower, president of Columbia University of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas. Franklin ..was associated with sharp criticism If of the Truman administration. Linked With Re]>u<lialioii He K-as an officer of Americans lor Democratic Action last April wheri thai organization repudiated Mr. Truman's candidacy. Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt put a chill on Mr. Truman April 29 after » White House call. She said she •would lake no part In any political eempaign this year. James Roose- Telt, the eldest son, is a California politician who has been sharp shooting Mr. Truman for months. Right now James is a member of a nominally Truman delegation to the Democratic National Convention. Whether he will stay hitched may depend 011 developments during the president's current swing through the Pacific Coast states . Mis. Roosevelt, James. Franklin and Elliott, are the politically vocal members of the late presidents' ^ family. Mr. Truman would find '^ them mighty handy this year. Elliott apparently is standing pat. He wrote last week to a Michigan Democratic Party worker that he Ttould be "only too happy" to support Douglas for president but he •aid nothing of supporting the Democratic ticket if Mr. Truman was the candidate. Franklin Roosevelt is a Nev? York lawyer as was his father before him. His public promise to sup * t the Democratic ticket will keep party record clear if, likely, he takes his famous name into New York state politics.
