Let's Have Democracy Among the Democrats With the Democrats in a dilemma over picking a winning combination next week at the national convention in Philadelphia, a wisecracker has suggested that the anti-Trumanites center on California's Governor Warren in the event they cannot get Eisenhower's consent to become the party's standard bearer. Of course there is the minor matter that Governor Warren happens to be Governor Dewey's running mate and the unanimous choice of the Republican National Convention for vice president or. the GOP ticket, but none-the-lcss he has been branded a Democrat by none other than Harry Truman. For all that it matters (assuming that some Democrats know where-of they speak, when they say the GOP will win this year anyway) the Democrats might carry the situation a step further and pick Dewey for a running mate for the Californian and let him be vice president in the event the Democrats win. While the suggestion that the Democrats nominate Warren for president is not being made in a serious vein, such a move would not be without a precedent. He was elected governor of California at an election where his name appeared on both the Republican and the Democratic tickets. It is certain that there is a sizeable crowd among the Democrats who do not want Truman, and if Trtmian cannot have Truman as a standard-bearer for the Democrats he probably would just as soon have Warren as any other \ v h o might choose to run. What will happen when the Democrats meet in Philadelphia is anybody's guess. One thing appears certain. Eisenhower will not consent to compete with Truman for the nomination. But the delegates might eliminate Truman and then discover that Eisenhower could be drafted. One other thing is certain. If this is a country as democratic as it should be President Truman would be willing to throw the convention of his party open to all comers who can qualify as'Demo- crats and then let the best man win. Just because Truman happened to be the vice presidential choice of the late FUK four years ago, and just because he fell heir to three years in the White House is no reason for barring the door to any other true Democrat who might do as good a job as Truman has done. President Truman by refusing to five Eisenhower or some other man of presidential stature, a chance at the nomination ig not! being democratic- .More, than that he is not being fair to his party or to the country he serves as chief executive.

Maybe Dewey Thought of This Politicians have missed one possibility in speculating; about the split duties handed to GOP National Chairman Hugh D. Scott, Jr., and to Herbert Browne!) as Candidate Dewey's campaign manager. Congressman Scott is presumably sympathetic to Congress' record. Candidate Dewey has praised that record, but some of its elements he would find it hard to reconcile with his own views and platform. Many problems would be solved if Dewey and Brownell campaign on the candidate's ideas, leaving it to Scott to handle the party campaign that has to down Congress' record whole, like a dose of salts. Maybe when he decided on the division of authority, Dewey never thought of ttiHl. Maybe he did. •••*•«*•*•• VIEWS OF OTHERS • •••*•••••••*>•••« • Arkansas Town Clinics Under the home town clinic program, which the Arkansas Economic Council-Slate Cliamber of Commerce If sponsoring, 1,620 Improvement projects have been proposed for action by local people In M cities.

Also the laste is not reliable as well as being a hazardous experiment.

Tt would require the President, on advice of National Security Resources Boirrl, to give small business ft fair share of the orders for defense materials. It defines a small business as one. employing less than 500 workers sml being Independently owned. Then as a clincher it would require the government to give small business an allocation of steel for any defense orders it may get. * These provisions weren't In the original draft act versions approved by Senate and House Armetl Services Committees.

And the steel industry I Is wafting nervously on the side to find out. Fines of 550,000 and up to three sears imprisonment are provided for any steel supplier who doesn't comply, so it's something to worry about.

There may be great thirst, inability to urinate, dizziness, jaundice after two or three clays, and uncotiHciosncss. As a rule more than half of I Ihose stricken die. usually about live to eight days after eating the I mushrooms. There is no good ' treatment for mushroom poisoning of this kind, although if the stomach can be washed out early the chances ot recovery are better. Another poisonous mushroom Is called amanita muscaria. or the "fly amanita." In this type the symptoms appear early—usually within three hours of eating the mushrooms, and when death occurs it is usualiy within 24 hours. In addition to the symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain, there is also sweating, tearing of the eyes, narrowing of the niplls of the eyes, slow pulse and n fatal cases, convulsions and un- ronsrionsness. This variety, if identifier! early enough, can be efficiently treated with atropine. In such properly treated cases about one in 10 succumb.
