Roosevelt's Son Sees Jack Garner For Presidency FORT WORTH, Tex.. Mar. 23.-- F'liott Roosevelt, second son o£ President Roosevelt, said today that Vice- President John Nance Garner, as leader of the conservative wing o£ the Democratic party, was presently the most likely candidate to head his party ticket in 1040. Roosevelt, who had described him- ;elt as the President's "severest friendly critic," said in a broadcast over his Texas state network that "John Garner is in the driver's seat right now, well in the lead of a likely Democratic candidate for the presidency in the 1940 elections." Garner, he said, was "by all signs and protents" the leader of the conservative branch of the party. "There is little room for doubt that Mr. Garner and the President of the United States have traveled separate roads since the winter of 1937," he said. "Reports have it that the Vice- President became so incensed over the Administration's handling of the sit-down strike situation .that he quit Washington and returned to Uvalde Cor a six months' vacation. Since his return, his opinions have been at variance with the President's as to the path being taken by the Democratic party. "As to the results thus far and the future attainments of the. conservative elements as opposed ''to the New Deal, I do not feel qualified to voice an opinion." Tractors Aid Rubber Plant.
