Taft said he would make no definite decision on the o.uestion of his candidacy for president until after the coming session of Congress adjourns later in 1947. He said that, in the EOth Congress, the Republicans will have a full job "reorganizing Congress and enacting a Republican program on (lie immediate problems of recon- version now before the American people." "The less personal ambition and presidential uolitics are mixed up f with that job. the more likely we are to succeed," he added. "As for presidential politics, it is still 18 months before the Republican convention of 1948." .

HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 27. (UP) — A new generation of comedians paid tribute to W. C. Fields, who worked hard to become great, drank hard to forget it, and died trying to get a laugh from his last audience. Fields passed away Wednesday at the Las Encinas Sanitarium, with his finger to his lips and winking at the nurses who had tiptoed to his bsdside. Doctors said the 67-year-old co- mecnan's death was caused by droP- sy and that he had been in a critical condition for several months. Fields said recently his condition was partly due to the fact doctors kept him on a diet of milk, "a whitish fluid they forced down helpless babies." Fields liKed to boast that he spent the last 46 years on a diet of olives floating in alcohol and it was his own idea that he be known as a chronic alcoholic. He was the butt of every "drunkard" joke, including several tossed his way yesterday afternoon by radio and film comedian Bob Hope during an all- star broadcast. Neither Hope nor other members of the cast had been informed of Fields' death "I saw W. C. Fields on the street and waved," Hope said, "nnd he weaved back." "The world is sure going lo iu 3 i. a lot of laughs." Hope said later He was one of the world's greates comedians." During his last years in Holly, wood he was' separated from hi; wife, Harriet, whom he married i 1931. She Jap Weapons Used Against French Troops " SAIGON, Dec. 27.

Elsewhere in Indo-Chlna French troops were cither attacking on all points or holding their positions, the high command said in a com- munique setting forth the military situation as of early today. Viet Nam insurgent forces attempted infiltration movements toward ' Gia Lam Airport and they were "easily repulsed," the com- munique said.
