The Republican and Democratic races each appeared to be a contost between a man working hard for the presidency and one who hasn't eaici he wants the job. The Republican choice seemed narrowed to Sen. Robert A. Taft who arrives In New Hampshire today in earnest quest of the nomination, and Gen. Dwijrht D. Elsen- hower, who says he won't seek It but will accept if nominated. On the Democratic side, Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee was licrhtinii what he calls an uphill battle against supporters of President. Truman. The President has not. announced whether he wants another term. The results of the New Hampshire primary election nr-xt Tues- dnv are not binding on convention delegates. But since it is the first presidential primary of the year, great psychological value is attached to its outcome. The latest happenings in the national campaign: Democratic: 1. Rep. Bryson (D-SC) v!slt.ed Truman yesterday and said the President told him he would know what to do about running "If he were sure Taft would not set the Republican nomination ami would not get elected it he got It." Sen. Bre\vst«r <R-Me), a Taft backer, called this statement "an obvious attempt" by the President to influence the New Hampshire primary. "I say it's time to call his bluff," Bre'«ter added. "Let him run again . . . Let him go out and defend the record as a candiate." 2. Democratic National Committee officials said they are leaving It to stale leaders whether to enter Truman's name in their presidential primaries. But to avoid any embarrassments, they are discouraging entry of the President's name in contests where his consent is required. 3. Kefauver conducted a slow- motion typ« at campaign in New Hampshire, selling himself in a folksy sort, of way. Truman backers expressed confidence the President would get all eight Democratic delegates. Kefauver none. Republican: 1. Paul G. Hoffman, former economic cooperation administrator, told a Durham, N. K., audience that Eisenhower is the only GOP candidate "who can win ths independent vote and break the single 'Solid South.' " 2. Taft, attain protesting the alphabetical listing which places him last on the ballot, opens his three- day drive nt Manchester. He has 21 appearances scheduled. 3.
