WEDNESDAY, JUNE as. 1953 INSIDE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY: BLYTHEVILLB (ART'.) COURIER What's Inside Democratic Party? Heritage Of FDR, Influence of HST, Hope Despite Ike Bv JOHN GUXTHKR Written (or NEA Service What's inside the Democratic Party? First, (ho heritage of Roosevelt. Second, the paternal influence, whatever it mav be worth, of .Mr. Truman. S Third, rival candidates, none of whom hate each other quite as much as do the. lending Republican candidates. Fourth, baffling uncertainty who the candidate will be. ^ Fifth, important .sectional differences. Sixlh, confusion. Seventh, in .spite of Ike and everything, some modicum of hope. The greatest single, overriding advantage ihe Democrats have in 'he campaign about to be fought. '*;th no holds barred, is the ''act 1 the balance of power between "IP p,"riies his ihar.ped drastically, » ith the i esnli that the Democrats arc now apparently the maiority f'rly in this cojntr, not the Republican?. Recent Oalltm polls are ilimni- natme. 'rhe Democrats can expect <o poll 39 per cent r>f the total vote In IS52, and the Republicans 3-1 per cent. nnependents — people who say *e have no party choice—make up the remaining 27 per cent and will obviously decide, the issue. In 1918. the independent vote tvent .17 per cent Democratic, 43 per •ent Republican. But a poll taken n March, 1952, lipped the Scpubli- 'ans <among -independents! to 45 per cent, whiel ihe Democrats'drop- TjV 0 36 P pr cc nt, with 19 per cent 81 undecided. Even so, to win the Democrats will need to take only six million ndependent votes on the basis of in estimated total electorate of 55 Tiillion. The Republicans must take Tine million. Figures, like delegates, are not •ery fixed objects. They may Change radically between now and November. The impact of a fresh, ilowing personality like Eisenhower ni?ht make millions of voters move ibont. The Democrats don't know >'ho their own Candida!,? \\ill be md quite possibly he will be some-' i^dy very weak. So imorecedenlly fluid Is th» vliole political picture and so un•"-!.»in is the Ions-run future that ' heard one esteemed specialist say •Xo matter who trets in. he will be i one-tena president." The srrnnd itreat advantage Ihe iwn special view, Is that the°coun- ry is prosperous, most people are "ttlnsr alonp fine, and the average oter is belter off than he has ever —n before. Hence, he is going to : for the status qua. So reason .Democrats. he Democrats—with substantial from events—have kept employment, fnll. and both farm prices and vases dizzying]? high. They have lot only given a new measure of *cnrity to people, at large; they are n a position to promise more and ' omimdnR security. j It. is mostly the rich who how] ' bout taxes, say the. Democrats \ electorate outmnnbers (he right wins, and the Democrats—«o they say—have Ihe left wing sewed up." Another presumptive advantage to the Dcmocrais is that a whole senenHion of voters has fsrown up knowine noihiiiR but Democratic rule. Many slightly older remember as a living, glaring fact the crash and rienression that preceded Roosevelt. That crash can stil be whooped up into a fluorescent topic Next, look at issues. The chief Democratic issue will be the substance of what I have jnsi mentioned—security [or the under-possessed, good limes for all. the welfare state. The Democrats will alt.iks the Republicans as "the parly of the rich and the privileged few. who will forset about the working people and bring on another Hoover denression with bread lines and millions of unemployed." , Rebutting the Republican charge that they are going to "socialize" America, the Democrats will say that, on the contrary, their reform's will benefit the free enterprise system, and that the net result of the New and Fair Deals lias been to prodtlc the most prodigious national income any country has evr known. On budget, and taxes, the Democratic vicwnoint is defensive. Just let a Republican administration try to run this country without high taxes, they say. Third, communism and foieien policy. The. Democrats will attempt lo repudiate Ihe Republican accusation that they have been soft, to communism, and will say that contrariwise, they have done a' tremendous job In combatin? world communism. They will clip the Truman Plan tor aid lo Greece nnd Turkey Ihp Marshall Plan, the European Recovery Program which undoubtedly made it h?.rder for communism ro function in western Kurope. am the attempt to stop predatory com munlsm dead In Its tracks In Korea • • • The Democrats assert that thi Republicans, particularly If Taft i : the nominee, would try to pull on of Europe, cut foreign aid. and en danger world peace. They say Taff. isolationism would be welcomed b' the Kremlin. As to financial aid to Europe, the Democrats will point, out that a large proportion of the money has been actually spent within thi United States, and has helped u INSIDK THE DEMOCRATIC I-ARTV: Tl,e heritage nf mil deft! the influence ,,f IfS f (cenlen, »nrt ln.ne despite Ike irishd.

Any Democrat, the Democrats feel, can beat Taft, because if Taft is running, the Democratic Parly is almost certain to carry the pivotal ; states with large labor votes, like New York. Illinois, Pennsylvania New Jersey. Michigan, and California.
