TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 1953 BLITHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW! ?AGH WIKB Russell Senate's Parliamentary Whiz, Brings Keen Strategic Know-How to Presidential Bid Bp WADE JONES NEA SUlt CorrMpondent WASHINGTON (NBA)—The successful career of Sen. Richard Russell, Georgia's new candidate for the Presidential nomination, ij a triumph of parliamentary procedure. While still a political youngster in the Georgia legislature. Russell made it his business to memorize the rule.? of that body. It helped make him speaker of the house. When he was elected to Ihe VS. Senate back In 1932. he again set as his first task the memorizing •3pf 1U long and complicated rules. That has paid off, too. The only' two times that Vice President Alben Barkley has been overruled while presiding over the senate have been on appeals and motions by Russell. Sen. Paul Douglas, of Illinois, debating on the floor with Russell while the latter was leading the southern bloc's fight against Civil Rights legislation, said at one point: "I yield to one of the subtlest men and one of the most able field, generals who ever appeared on the floor of the Senate." Essentially, Russell is and has He was for the Marshall Plan, hut wanted Its scale reduced, and, before the Korean War. lie was against spending millions In military aid to Europe. TUe Senate voted against him on this. Russell says he's glad of It now. Russell has been interested In things military since childhood. He has read widely on Ihe subject, and Is said to be one of the few men In Washington who has gotten through most of the books on World War 11 canpaiens put out by the armed services. Such knowledge, of course, stands him in good stead as chairman of the Armed Services Committee. He is also a member of the Appropriations Committee and, last Summer, he was Joint chairman of the MacArthur-Truman investigation by the Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees. What kind of a President would Russell make? His qualifications are definitely limited by geography, of course, but there are Indications that he has kept campaign premises in the past.

'(The other half vote went to Paul McNutt, of Indiana.) Russell hadn't sought the nomination. He wasn't even in Philadelphia. Further, he did not Join the Dixiecrats after the convention was over. In fact, he helped Truman carry Georgia. Russell thinks of himself as an independent Democrat, and his voting record backs him up. Generally speaking, he voted with the New Dealers. He co-spcnsored the Tennessee Valley nnd Rural Alectrifi- cation legislation. But he was against the St. Lawrence waterway plan, and In the later connection they tell a story p.bout Russell and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. ' The phone rang one night in Russell's hotel room only a short time after he had come to the Senate, and a voice said, "Hello. Dick. This is Frank Roosevelt." Thinking it was some drunk Russell hung up.
