PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COUMBK FRIDAY, JUNE II, 1»BJ Stevenson Does Nothing To Discourage Democrats From Nominating Him By JACK BELL SPRINGFIELD, III., (.Pr — Gov. Adlal E. Stevenson apparently is doing nothing to discourage the rapidly-growing assumption that he will not. refuse the Dcmocrntic presidential nomination if It comes bis way. Although the governor returns B steadfast "no comment" to questions about a possible draft, his friends say he has not token advantage oT numerous opportunities quietly to scotch their moves pointed in thnt direction. Jacob Arvey, Illinois national commltteeman, tells nil corners that Stevenson will respond io draft. All the governor snys. put)*, licly and privately, is Ihtil ho doesn't believe any drnft will take place. He says all he wants to do is run for re-election. Movement Planned But if Arvey and others havt; Iheir wny, there will be a movement at tlie Chicago convention next month to put Stevenson in the race. He probably will yet Illinois' voles on the first ballot. If New York and Michigan then swing behind' him, a bandwagon movement might be started. Stevenson loofcs good to many Democrats as a potential nominee because (1) he has proved ha cun carry vital Illinois; (2) hns a cleanup rcord which would offset Republican "corruption" shouts against the Democrats; (3) Is for continuity In the administration's foreign affairs program; and (4) supports its civil rights proposals without being obnoxious lo rebel llous Dixie Democrats. A Ran Politician On the other hand, Stevenson appears to be one of those rale politicians who really doesn't pine to be president. He would rather bo governor again and 1 finish his ef- forte to reorganize Illinois. He i* worried about the effect on hla three sons of national publicity that would go along with White House residence. He doesn't relish the thought of attacks that might be directed against him as a divorced man. Stevenson's friends say, however, that all of these considerations would be overridden U he believed the Democratic party and the aountry really need his services or a national scale. The iiubject of a Stevenson draft cropped up Thursday at President Truman's news conference. Truman neither agreed nor disagreed with a prediction made to him a short time earlier by Scott Lucas, former Illinois senator, that Stevenson will accept a drnft and become the Democratic presidential nominee. The President said he just didn't know about that, lie said Lucas, as on Illlnoisan, is in a better position lo know. Other Men Av.JUblr Stevenson contends Iherc are other men available for the role and .scc.s nothing especially wrong, for instance, with Sen. Estea Ke fauvcr ol Tennessee. Kefauvcr Is leading In the number of committed convention dele gales. ]f .Stevenson is projected Into the picture. It will be by men who don't want Kcfauvcr for the presidential nominee. Strangely enough, some of thorn talk rather longingly of a Stevenson-Kef nuvcr ticket, although the Tennessee senator has said he won't lake .second place. Stevenson has made It clear to his friends that he would be a. much more willing candidate if Sen. Robert A. Taft Is the Republican nominee. He feels strongly lhat Tuft's foreign policies arc wrong nnd would pitch Jus campaign primarily on that issue. As a middle-of-the-roader, Stevenson would not be too far away from Tnft on some important domestic Issues. Not Interested In Ike The Illinois governor Is less Interested In running against Gen. Dwighl D. Elsenhower if Iho latter becomes the Republican nominee. This is more because he believes Elsenhower would curry on toward the major objectives ot the present foreign policy than because he believes that the five-star genm »1 would b morn difficult to defeat in November. There have been reports thnt Stevenson will have something to sny about a possible Democratic draft before the Republicans meet in Chicago July 7. This would be designed to stop tiic talk that he Is only walling to see what the Republicans do before making up his mind. No such statement is contemplated now, bui. nides wouldn't rule out the possibility there might be one later.
