(U.P.)—The name ol Defense Sccrclary- DesiRnale James V. Porrcslal was reported to be looiniiijj lurgc ill Democratic thinking loclay as a possible running male lor president Truman In 1948. Four Democratic senators agreed in separale interviews that Mr. Truman, considered virtually certain to foe the Democratic candidate for President next year, will have a free hand, in naming his vice- presidential ticket-sliarer. 4. BLYTHKVILLK (ARK.) COURIER NEWS The senators expressed belief that Mr. Truman's choice would be determined largely on n "vole pulling" basis, and that his selection for the .second siwt on the ticket would almost, certainly bo accepted by the party's noniin;uin» convention. With al least fouv vice-presidential possibilities in the ranks of Senate Democrats, the senators declined to speculate on whom Mr. Truman's choice mijjht be. .Howover one senator dccLurcd that the name of Navy Secretary Forrestal, .soon to assume ti ie new role of Secretary ot Delciise, was looming large in inter-party speculation. The 55-year old New Yorker has insisted to associates Hint he desires to return to private; life as soon as armed service unification is an accomplished tact. But one of these associates told a reporter that "any citizen" would welcome a chance to run for the important post of vice-president. From i'ivotal New York In Forrcstal's favor Senate speculation listed liis residence in pivotal New York state, his World War I record :is a Naval flyer and his success as a government administrator. >• Working againsl his chances, one senator saici, was his presidency of Dillon, Read & Co., New York investment banking firm, and other Wall Street connections. Others who figure prominently in advance Senate speculation for "the Democratic vice-presidential nomination are Gov. Mon C. Wallgren of Washington, a former senator an-i close personal friend of the president, and Sens. Millnrcl E. Tydings. Mel.. Scott W. Lucas, I.I., Joseph C. O'Malioney, Wyo., and nrien Mc- Mnlion,, Conn. Though differing privately over possible selections, '.he opinion appeared rather widespread that. Mr. Truman v.'ould chouc his runninr; mate with one eye cocked on thi; voting stiength the selection would add to tiie ticket. Sen. Olin D. Johnston. D, S. C.. expressed hope- tlm Mr. Truman would select the man "who will do Ihe most to assure us of victory." Sen. Sheridan Downey. D., Ciil., observed that "there is no miestion but what. President Truman will select his own runninr; mute." Sen. Joseph C. O Mahoney. D.. Wyo.. said all "practical psliticians" know that in both llcpublicun and Democratic conventions the presidential candidate "in nine out ol ID cases selects the vice-presidential nominee." Sen.
