PAGE 2—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN.). FHJD.W, NOV. 18, 1!)1<) DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Party Bosses Practice Vote Discrimination Against Organizations Of Young Democrats; Seek To Discourage Intelligent Youngsters; Prefer Good Party Hacks. Los Angeles—While President Truman haa been prc-aching civil rights for the South, he has Jrrac- ticed exactly the same kind of vote discrimination toward groups of Young Democrats as he has criticized in southern states. The national convention of Young Democrats in Chattanooga, this week illustrates this vote discrimination, Jand also highlights the fact that the young Democrats, once a live wire, progressive organization, in many states has become a Charley McCarthy for Democrntic bosses, sometimes bought and paid for. The Young Democrats of New York st-itc, for instance, arc no more representative of the Drmn- •ratlc party than Boss Hague of Jersey City. New York Democrats are not even permitted to hold an election. Their president is appointed, not elected —by Paul Kitzpatrick, Democratic State Chairman, who keeps an ironclad hold on the Young Dems organization for fear they will bolt to Young Congressman Franklin Roosevelt. Undoubtedly the great preponderance of Young Dftmocratic voters in New York would definitely be in the Rooseve'.t camp—if they had a chance. Fitzpatrick has his eye on the governorship of New York himself next year, and he doesn't want control to slip into the hands of Franklin Roosevelt, a potential rival candidate. California Case Flagrant The throttling of Young Derns in Now York stale is not Truman's fault. But definitely at Truman's doorstep can be laid an even more flagrant case of vote, denial this one in California. In that .state the Younj^ Democrats of California, Inc., has din- integrated Into a group of about 100 jaded parly hacks who, in effect, have 1 sold the letterhead of their organization to any political faction that would reward them with jobs. When David Prii.'e and Edwin T. Thnyer of the California Young Dems were given jobs by George McLain of the California Old-Age Pension group, the Young Dems promptly lent their letterhead to pfc-mote McLain's Old- Age Pension plan. As a result, 2. rival group of Young Dems — "The California Young Democratic Clubs" has mushroomed up to 4,000 members, in contrast to fewer than 100 members for the old regulars. And on July 8, the new group officially applied for recogniUin by Washington. Their" application was signed by Mrs. Edward Heller, Democratic National Committoe- •woman; James Roosevelt, Natinn- nl Committeeman; and Oliver Carter, California chairman of the 1 Democratic State Committee. White House Intervened Furthermore, it developed that the old and decre|p3t Young Dems had not paid their dues. They had borrowed $1,250 from Kd Pauley and Jimmy Roosevelt in 1947 to pay their dues, but something happened to their money—perhaps DIAMOND MERCHANTS FOR Ittlif* • lit)?

But in tho case of California," the White House -mysteriously intervened. Perhaps, However, it wasn't HO mysterious. Fcr Matt Connolly, secretary tu the President, got a phone cnll from G'.-orgo Luckey, California cattleman friend of Mr! Trumanb, asiking Uiat the new Young Dems not be recognized. This was on July 8- and the application of the now group hius cooled on ice until this week. Hoy Baker, national chairman of tho Young Dems, h.-iH ordered recognition of 'the new California grm.1;:,. Bill Boyln. chairman of tho Democratic National Committee, had promised recognition on Sept. 14. The Los Angeles County Central committee voted 189 to 1 for recognition. But, thanks to White House Intervention, 100 old and shopworn "Young Dema" continued to represent the entire stale of California until thia week while 4,000 new members remained out in the cold. NOTE-Onn trouble with thp Young Democrats in many states is that the party bosses don't want intelligent youngsters in the organization. If the youngsters are intelligent they are discouraged For Intelligent youngsters don't make good party hacks.
