. 4 Thursday, Feb. 24 1944 MASON CITY OLOBE-GAZETj" Dewey Firm on Refusal to Campaign New York, /p)_Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York will accept a draft nomination lor the presidency but he will not alter in any way his determination not to become an active candidate before the republican convention in June. That was the interpretation placed Thursday by intimates of the governor on his action in telegraphing his "strongest disapproval" of the course taken by 24 candidates in filing petitions at Madison for election as supporters of Dewey in'the April 4 Wisconsin primary. Dewey apparently sealed the door against any exit from the position he has taken that he is not seeking the nomination, but Is not saying before hand what he would do if it came to him. His friends made is plain, however, that the 42 year old governor is willing--if the convention is willing--to take his chances on what he and most other republicans believe will be a battle to defeat President Roosevelt for a 4th term, _ There have been some predictions that Dewey might be forced to show his hand before the convention. These were based on the assumption 'that potential delegates who wished to be for the . New York governor might demand to know his attitude when laced with the choice of supporting some other avowed candidate or going to the convention to back a man they were not sure would accept the nomination. Dewey, who previously had contented himself with reitera- J · lion of the statement that he was not a candidate, went so far in his telegram to the Wisconsin group as io express the hope that they would withdraw the petitions which had been filed for them. At Madison, however, Fred R Zimmerman, secretary of state and a candidate at large pledged to Dewey, said he believed the governor's backers whose nomination papers have been filed would. continue In the race "Our~ being candidates is not Oovemor Dewey's choice but ours, Zimmerman said. "There is nothing in Governor Dewey's telegram that makes him less a candidate than he ever has been before and there is nothing in our nomination papers that makes him more of one." If the group carries out the determination to run, that would PJ ac ?. ^renounced Dewey slate in the field against a group of candidates pledged to support Wen- 1 " 11 T . \ViHkie, the 1940 nominee.

Barkley's break with the president is no minor fracture. It could start congress on a rampaging rebellion which would make 'recent uprisings seem feeble. It might cwry 4h»t rebellion right on to (he floor of Ihe democratic national convention. But while 'republican a n d plenty of democratic political hats stilt are in the air in celebration of major breach in, administration breastworks, it remains a fact that Barkley did NOT bolt the new deal nor 1 disavow its record Barfcley balked and bolted because President Roosevelt has been dealing roughly with congress. The division between the resigning senate democratic leader^and Mr. Roosevelt so far has not reached the question of a 4th term. What Barkley said Wednesday m protest against Mr. Roosevelt's veto of the 1944 tax bill is what congress has been telling itself for some months--that the president has become harsh and abrupt in dealing with congress when it failed to carry out his proposals. Nor does it impugn Barkley's motives in any way to recall that Kentucky last November swung sharply from its democratic mooring and, further, that this swing was interpreted as unfriendly to the Roosevelt administration. Barkley was last elected to the senate in 2938 with the active assistance of Mr. Roosevelt, who went into Kentucky Jo support his candidacy against that of A. M (Happy) Chandler in the democratic primary. Chandler subsequently got a senate seat. Now Barkley is up arain. He has not said so far whether he tvill be a candidate for re-election. But if he is, Wednesday's" challenge to Mr. Roosevelt scarcely could lose him any votes and might attract more than a few to the Barkley standard. Whether Barkiey dropped a blockbuster in resigning from the senate democratic leadership ' or merely a canister of political red fire will be determined as political events develop. He could become the rallying point for a congressional democratic effort to organize against the draft-Roosevelt movement, which is now far advanced. This congress has been moving rapidly toward a political explosion of protests against wUat some legislators regard as Mr. Koose- velt's effort to impose his will on the legislative branch. Last month the president indicted congress on charges of "fraud" in devising a soldier vote bill. This week he accused the house and senate of en- of acting tax legislation which would" impoverish the needy and enrich the greedy. Congress was lighting mad. But few expected the explosion to come on the leadership quarterdeck. Even fewer believed that Barkley will follow other notable bolt- ers into political opposition to the president's renominatlon. The list Is long--John N. Garner, James A. Farley, Harry H. Woodring, John L. Lewis, to name some who-were once white house intimates. But there t is a whirlwind of speculation on the effect Barkley's defection may have within the new deal-democratic party where he has been a notable figure, "Sen. Barkley's speech places in jeopardy Mr. Roosevelt's re- nomination for president," said Sen. John H. Overton (D. La.) "It should have a salutary influence upon arresting the alarming increase of authority in ·the executive branch which rapidly is tending toward a dictatorship in the United States." "This is an anti-congress fight" said Rep. Wesley E. Disney, (D. Okla). "This was an anti-congress (veto) message designed for the 1944 campaign." Sen. Harry S. Truman said he w a s "backing Barkley io the limit." Former Secretary of War Woodring, a Kansan, is attempting to organize anti-new deal democrats against a 4th term. He said Barkley was moved by resentment against Mr. Roosevelt's · contemptuous" attitude toward congress. ,, Sen - Ellison D. "Cotton' Ed" Smith (D. S. Car.,) found Barkley's rebellion the occasion to propose a 3rd party coalition of real" democrats with republicans. But Smith warned, too, that southerners could NOT vote e a e n explosions, pour water on te flames and strive to clear the way " " S 100king victims"Bodies are being removed from whor Ull £ mg 5 ° feet from the P°cc where the nazi's stick of bombs the h^h^"'' haVC to be u "der GVe those who were for anyone with a label.
