Thta U MM of a M*M W irtitiCi OB hi. findings.) By JACK BEIJL KANSAS ornr CAP) — This Ixxne txue" area for Gen. Dwiijht D. H*etihower and President Tni- man i« as much up in the air as «K r*»t of the country about this presidential race. Democratic uncertainty u; just as neat in President Trumnn's home ltet« of Missouri as It is elsewhere about his future plans. MtasoKi h Ready Mr. Trumnn can have Missouri's eonrentlon votes— and Kansas' too — U he will just say he Intends to run again. But aome of the Derno- arate are getting restive about the delay hi a White House announcement. The uncertainty about Eisenhower centers on conflicting opinion here as to whether the general can come home froirt Europe to speak In his own behalf before the Republican Convention — and whether inch a move Is necessary to win the OOP nomination for him. General Needs "Civvies" The consensus of Elsenhower's leaders In this area — Including Harry Darby, Kansas GOP national eommitteeman and one of the top brains of tha Eisenhower -for President drive— seems to be that the general ought to get hack Into cl- Tlllan clothes before the Chicago convention in July. Most talked about here U a schedule which would bring him back to this country by mid-March, pot&ibly to report to tha President, Congress and the people on the progress of European rearmament. The general has said he will take no port in campaign activities In his bfthalf before the nominating con- YeMttoa. His rooters say that, to ttiem, this means only that he will pot campaign hi Individual states. Wiejr contend that he could make three or four speeches on the Issues of the d»j from liU rostrum as president ot Columbia University. One Mock KMnaini Such a course might dispose of the no-campaigning pledge but nobody in the Eisenhower camp here has' quite been able to figure out )mt how to circumvent the eener- al'j statement he will not to be K&ewd from hta European command. President Truman further complicated ttwt point by laying he meoa't kitend to relieve the gen- Bmnhower asks for it. Maybonk Te//s Opposition to Truman in '52 WASHINGTON. (/P>—Sen. Maybank (D-SC), a fcey man In Con- ress on many administration icasures, said today he Is against, nothcr term lor President Truman. And Maybank, Democratic na- onal coinmlttceman from South arollna, predicted "most o( the outh" will unite behind Sen. Rusell of Georgia for (he party's presl- ential nomination. 'As far as I am concerned, 1 am or Dick Russell first, last and all le way," Maybnnk told a rei>orter. He has said that much Iwtore. 3ut he added this Is the first time —1948 included—he publicly has oiced opposition to nominating >lr. Truman. The President hasn't disclosed •nether he will run again. Over le week-end, Democratic leaders rom 13 Midwestern states adopted resolution calling on the Presl- cnt to be a candidate. They also ndorscd Vice President Barkley for .nothcr term. U.N. Ooottoued from may be latent In the Soviet repre tenkfttlve's statement of Jan. V In the speech fco which. Cooper Kf erred, Vlshlnsky accused the United States of preparing nggres >ive measures against Commutits China along the South China bor ders. lite , Soviet diplomat then declared: "These Illegal — flagrantly lUegn —acts of the United States, we cai , b« quite sure, will be declared fc be defensive measures ngniiis China's aggression whenever event begin to take their course on th southern borders of China, In Trml land, Burma and Yunan provlnc of China." Toff- Launches Speaking Tour Through Florida Hy The Associated Prtss The Republican presidential -race stepped up In tempo today with Senator Taft making a whirlwind speaking tour of Fiorlda and Gc-n, Dwight D. Elsenhower f|iuilifying for tho New Hampshire primary, Taft, his eye obviously on Florida's ten national convention votes, planned three talks—at Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Orlando—in one day. Elsenhower Qualified for the New Hampshire March II primary yes- terctiiy simply by not notifying officials to withdraw his name. However, c 11 try of E Isc nl i o we r's name in tho Minnesota primary, believed to be a virtual certainly a week nRo, may be blocked by hackcr.s In Washington. The general's scrnicglslf are said to feel that delegates pledged to Harold E. Stnssen, Minnesota "favorite son", might switch to Eisenhower later if the goticrnl doesn't oppose Stasscn at this time.
