A great day to be in the mountains, snow - sprinkled and with the stillness broken only by the roar of the dam. . . . Second breakfast at noon, then for a look at "Louisiana Purchase," which would be quite flat sans Bob Hope and Victor Moore. . . . Fun watching Moore watch Bob showing how a woman squeezes into a girdle. . . . Memory stretching line: ". . when it was legal for a Republican to be president." Snow slowing traffic. . . .

Sincerely, THE SEC. 3 Democrats Seen in Race For Governor Chairman Meyers Says Field Has Narrowed to "Ross, Harr and Guffey" Meredith Meyers, Chairman of the Democratic State Committee, asserted today the field of "can didates" for the gubernatorial nomination has narrowed down to three "Ross, Harr and Guffey." He referred to Auditor General F. Clair Ross, Luther A. Harr, chief counsel of the Bituminous Coal Commission, a Federal agen cy, and United States Senator Jo seph F. Guffey. None has said he would or would not be a can didate. "As far as I'm concerned, there are only three candidates, Ross, Harr and Guffey," the Chairman declared. "As for me, I'm for an open primary." Meyers and Guffey both have declared for an open primary which would be accomplished by abolition or suspension of the State Committee's rule that a slate be recommended. Guffey bucked the Recommen dations Committee in 1938, losing on a ticket of Thomas Kennedy for Governor and the late S. Da vis Wilson for the United States Senate. He won re - election for himself in 1940 when the Commit tee suspended the endorsement rule though some elements backed Walter A. Jones for the United States Senate at that time. The Senator said some time ago he could list a dozen or 15 poten tiai candidates lor Governor in the Democratic field but rescinded a promise to list them publicly, The list is said to include Ken nedy; Arthur Colegrove, Corry publisher; Former Governor George H. Earle, United States Minister to Bulgaria, who is on his way home; Anthony J. Drexel Biddle, and William C. Bullitt. The situation among the Repub licans is just as unclear. Mentioned as possible candidates are United States Senator James J. Davis, Major General Edward Martin. Lieutenant Governor Samuel S.I Lewis, Attorney General Claude T. Reno, State Senator Weldon B. Heyburn, and Supreme Court Judge George W. Maxey. Recent ly the names of Roger W. Rowland, former Secretary of Property and Supplies, and G. Albert Stewart, Secretary of Forests and Waters, were added to the speculative conversations. This is the month for slate - making meetings the primary campaign gets under way in Feb ruary and the voting takes place in May. To date there is but one avowed and announced candidate for Governor Ivan C. Watkins, Republican Congressman from Schuylkill county. The State elects a Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of Internal Affairs, 25 State Senators, 208 Assemblymen and 33 Congressmen this year.
