gtr.I'iHRViM.K (ATiK.> JTTTiY HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Wilbur Peeble Discovers Who GOP Will Choose As Its Next Candidate Editor's note: Wilbur Tcnble, the average American, Is getting close to Hie key problem of the Republican convention, as he tells himself In tills Idler to his brave wife at home, Trellis Mac:) .... CHICAGO Wi— Well, hones', you' can quit worrying about who is going to be the Republican can- dltinte for president. I've got it all fifinrert out. It's going to be Taft — or BUrnhower. I can loll you — and it is no secret at thai — Ihe delegates are. relieved to have problem out of the way. Up until now they had been worrying about it. Like the rest of the country, it is a relict to have it solved. All that is left now Is to pick A vice presidential candidate and a platform the party can stand on without a guilty conscience. Of course, dear there nre sonic cynics Republicans to resume national responsibility mntlcr what after 20 years, no the price may be. The otld tiling about the OOP quarrel to pk"K its lop political evangelist is the raucous laughter H is stirring among local Democrats. One of them said: "You think tlio average man Is excited about corruption? When did a follow ever vole against the butter on his bread?" I reported Ihis remark to a Kc- liiibiican delegate and he looked depressed. "We are going to fnce tlmt head- on." he said. "That Is Taft is — or Eisenhower is. We are going to provide morality and butter both. I'm sure — I hope." Well, dear, f-oodbye for from Your loving husband.

Their standard gai? Is: Tlie Platform Gag "A platform is Just something a fellow stands on until lie catches the trnll thai will take him away to something finer." So far as I cnn figure the lie- publican pifltform Is against. Democratic corruption. It Is for nn honest dollar, food four times a day, n happy life (or everybody, and work for all If a fellow can't figure out a better way to earn a living. It is also in favor of big crops for the farmer nntl a man marrying the girl of his choice, though not at the price of divorce or loo much bad weather in the cities. It's Not Too Definite The platform Is also for labor — but it doesn't go too far into the question of who Is going to I rc fu5ctf "to act, and at Ihe time, have to perform It. Naturally, a platform can't be too definite In times like Ihese. Truman Gives 'Recess' Post To Buchanan WASHINGTON (m — President, Truman gave Thomas C. liuchanan a recess appointment yeslerilay — good until Congress reconvenes — as chairman of the Federal Power Commission. Buchanan, a Beaver. Pa. lawyer, has been PPO chairman since 1948. but the Senate Old not confirm Ills reappolnlment when Truman nominated him earlier this year. The Senate Commerce committee The delegates have been considerately cheered by the appeals by General MacArthur and former President Hoover for a moral revival. They feel that the Republicans are 4-square behind this crying need, nnd are cheerfully awaiting the moment when Bob Taft and Ike Eisenhower toss coins to see which will lend this great cruisade against entrenched corruption. I would say that the most heartening thing that has come out of this great decision to attack sin is the all-around agreement amcng Republicans here thai it is a nee essary move. But as to the leader ship — neither TiUt nnr Eisenhower seems to want to toss the col until he can cry "heads" and •win either way It lands. They ar • both dedicated men, and neithe wants to gamble. The only other problem now left in the Republican convention Is who is going to be vice president. Well, Trellis Mae, believe It ' or not that is the ?<H question — as people used to say In Ihe oU days before television started paving $5,000 /or an average quiz show — answer. There are at least 15 poll-1 ~~ ticians who want to be vice president, and the trouble is that the U. S. government only elects one, although even an ordinary restaurant has at least five. Some cynics here feel that, in their earnest eagerness to head the great moral crusade, either Tnft or Ike may make a delegate deal on the question of who is to be vice president, and maybe accept a person who is otherwise socially unacceptable to him. Well, honey, I don't say these rumors are untrue. But I have noted a great willingness among the Chairman Edwin C. Johnson ID- Colo) said It meant Buchanan was ml of a Job. Some members op- losed him on grounds he was not qualified for the post.
