PAGE TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NKVV* Ohio fo Be Scene OfGOPShowdow StoiMn Will Enter Presidential Primary In Taft's Home State By Lfle C. Wilson CnHcd PrtM Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Jan. 26. (UP) — Harold E. Stasscn was pitted today • gainst Sen. Robert A. Tatt In a bruising Ohio test of Republican party policy sentiment and their own personal political »ex appeal. Both men are avowed candidates for president, Stassen jolted Taft yestcrdny by announcing hs would enter Ohio's May 4 presidential preference primary in opposition to the fnvoritc- •on Senator. The Taft-Stnssen battle give Mid-West Ohio a chance to vote for or against free-handed spending to «td Europe. Talt is no free spend- •r, Stasseu goes along with the philosophy of th« Marshall Plan. Stns- sen's own plan advanced last year would designate 10 per cent oi U. S. production oi goods and food for the express purpose oi building; world-wide pence, plenty and freedom. The Olilo primary takes place May 4 under conditions which inevitably will rattle the Republican party windows and bend l!ie rnft- ers. And the primary also rould disastrously damage Tail's prospects if Slassen licked him right there at home. Stasseu announced he would enter one delegate-at-largc candidate in Ohio and a scattering of district candidates. Tlic dclcgatc-at-large returns will tell Die talc of Stns- Een and Tail's relative popularity In Ohio. Stassen said he could not, find Taft entered In other state primaries and wanted a showdown with the Senator for whom he said he had high regard and sincere respect. And he said his delegate candidates would make no personal attacks on the Senator—just present the Issues. "But," Stassen explained, "the differences between us on bolli foreign and domestic policy represent the major issues within the Republican Party and before the country." "Great Mistake," Tatt Says Taft appiircnlly is bristling with sui-prise ant) indignation. When he heard of Stassen's move yesterday lie fired off a two sentence reply n,s follows: "I believe that Mr. Stassen has made a great mistake from his own standpoint In tiiing In Ohio, contrary to tlie usual practice among those interested In maintaining Republican Party harmony. Of course, he has every legal right to do so, but if a primary battle ground must be chosen, I am rfc- lighted he has selected Olilo where he has no chances of success." To contest a favorite son in his own state is both hazardous and unorthodox. Stassen's move implies the considerable contempt the young mnn from Minnesota must have for Tatt as a getter o[ votes. The suggestion that such a contest can take place without bare-fisted, bruising campaigning will surprise the politicians. • Taft's own statement is the. opening gun in an attack charging Stassen with disregard of the party's welfare. If political tempers in Ohio Jail to become hotter by the dny /rom now on, then the- political book will have to be revised pretty completely. Stassen's announcement was a declaration of war and the Taft campaigners will so interpret it. Stassen said he would not enter a slite of delegate candidates in New York against oov. Thomas E. Dewey, who also has announced his presidential candidacy. He expects to get a showdown with Dewcy In states other than Neiv York where they will comes; primaries. First up is New Hampshire, March 9. Alter his announcement yesterday, Stassen took off for New England on other pre-convention campaign swing.
