MARCH 12, 1952 New Hampshire Proves Set-Back To Truman, Taft Nation's First Vote May BringRevatnping Of Political Strategy (Continued from Page 1) If any. effect on the turnout "Ike" Discloses Pride In Frankfurt, Germany, Eisenhower said, when told the returns, L Any American who is honored by ^«o many other Americans considering him fit for the presidency should be proud, or, by golly, he is JW American." Kefauver satd, "I am entirely elated over the results. I don't think this is a protest vote against President Truman, because in general I agree with Mr. Trumnn." The senator added that he intends to enter as many primaries as possible. Truman Has No Comment In Key west, Fla., where lie is vacationing, Truman declined to discuss with newsmen the outcome of the New Hampshire voting. Clo-e associates, who could not be identified by name, said the result would not affect his decision on whether to seek re-election. Senator Taft was in Texas and mnde no comment on tile primary Taft's campaign leaders conceded defeat shortly after 3 a.m. P. E Johnston, secretary of the state's Bob Taft Club, declared. "New Hampshire Republican voters have expressed their desires in the pref- . erential primary. . . We wish to ifiXongratulate Gen. Eisenhower on ^Yils victory." Johnston added, "As Republicans, we shall support the nominee selected at the Republican convention." Truman Leaders Silent Truman's political leaders in the state could not be reached for a statement and up to a late hour they had Issued none. In the Republican primary, Harold E. Stassen, ex-governor of Minnesota, had approximately 5.000 rotes out of the nearly complete ballot count. Stassen was entered only in the preferential ballot; he had no delegates In the race. MacArthur Gefs-Vo<es Gen. Douglas MacArthur was given approximately 2.700 Republican write-in votes. None of the persons who ran as delegates fu- Torable to him was elected. MacAr-' thur had requested his admirers nob to enter his name in th "popularity" primary. Sixteen names appeared as write- ins of the Democratic ballots—half -jof them Republicans. New Hamp- Qfhire Democrats cast more than 100 •rotes each for Eisenhower and MacArthur, along with a smattering for John Foster Dulfcs, Taft, Stassen, Gov. Earl Warren of California, Sen. Styles Bridges of New Hampshire, and Louis P. Schneider, fit. Louis attorney. Hoffman Issues Statement Some observers considered it significant that Paul Hoffman, former administrator of EGA, was the ffrst to issue' a victory statement Jor Eisenhower. It came at a time when the general was trailing Taft by a few hundred votes. There have been recurring reports that Hoffman might be asked ,to take command of the national Eisenhower organization. Sen Henry Cabot Lodge of Massachusetts is now national chairman. Lodge, however, angered some of the New Hampshire lieutenants in the Eisenhower camp during the campaign. They did not permit themselves to be quoted, but privately they sharply criticized Lodge's statement to a new conference that the preferential bat- lot in this election "would prove Aiothlng." The senator said that the ^jyily test of victory would be the election of delegates. BAR (Continued from Page I) of six seats. •!.

BANKERS (Continued from Page 1) 'Where in Hell is that ball!' " The priest looked at the football nlaycr and said, "Well, where in Well was that op.ll?" By way of introduction, the Rev Mr. Nance told the group. "I like bankers. When I die I want bankers to be my pallbearers-J-they'vc carried me all my life." There are some things, big and little, that make no difference, the Ozark preacher said. 'lire size of one's house makes little real difference but the love consideration, laughter and happiness in a house make a world of difference, he tola the bankers. "I drive a Ford, just a little car and sometimes I get my eye on a Packard—but that's all of my anatomy that will ever be on one," the preacher said. "But the size tit a car isn't important, it's getting where you need to go that counts," he continued. "And then there are some things that seem [o make a difference but things are not always what they seem." the Rev. Mr. Nance said. He illustrated wtih a. story—"A saleslady told a young woman a certain color wasn't becoming and recomended that the young lady wear a dress 'the same as those hose you have on. Then you would be a sensation.' The young lady' replied, 'I sure would be a sensation—I'm not wearing hose.' " "But some little things make a bit; difference," the minister said. "A comma is just a tiny little thing but it might make a hie difference whether you say 'you're a I mess sergeant' or 'you're a mess. I sergeant.' " the Rev. Mr. Nance pointed out. "To you who are Interested in | building a better world, a better ! ccmmunity, here are three liNle i things that make a big difference," I ho told the bankers. , "It makes a big difference if the i corners of your mouth turn up or! down." he said. "I am confident' God wants us [o enjoy this life so develop and maintain a srnse of humor," the minister told the group. i "And it makes a difference if we turn up our noses or our sleeve? at our work," he said. "One of th? tragedies of our time is the number of people who want something for nothing — and a greater Iraeeci" is the number of people who go: it." the speaker said. "And finally, it makes a differ ence if we turn the pages of history forward or back. We must respect the past: but it is done—look to the future," the bankers were told. The good old days are gone, tho Rev. Mr. Nance told the banker?, but "we can make more good days in the future." • Senators Promise Deep Quizzing of Morris WASHINGTON if, - senate investigators promised to get down to "brass tacks" today in their quizzing of scvernment cleanup man New-bold Morris, who didn't always heed his wife's advice. That advice, written on 3. note which he kept in front of him at yesterday's stormy session, was: "Keep your shirt on." "He seemed much more interested in being flippant," Sen. McClellan D-Ark told a reporter afterward. Russia Rebuffed On Arms Check Truce Talk Tones Improve Despite New UN Rejections MONSAN, Korea M>j-Allied truce negotiators today rejected a new Red scheme to let Russia examine American secret weapons. U. N. negotiators said the communist plan "amounted to a forced gathering of military intelligence" by neutral inspection teams supervising n Korean armistice under the Red proposal these teams would include Russia. Allied negotiators also rejected a prisoner exchange plan they said the Communists seemed "very anxious" io put over. Rear Adm H E Libby said "it could be a trap." Allied Desire Omitted In any event, it did not incluJc voluntary repatriation on which the Allies insist. Despite the dual rejection, U N spokesmen noted an improved tone in truce talks after recent days of bitter exchanges. Brig. Gen. William p. Nuckols official U. N. Command spokesman said l!-e Reds showed "they reco<-- nizcd the fact that this is an armistice ill Korea" and apparently abandoned an attempt to ban Allied blockades of the China Coast "Talk a Ultle Further" Col.
