Politicians Feverishlyfigure For Trumans 1948 Vote Total By r>. HARo.i.n OI.IVFR WASHINGTON Iffi — President Truman's unequivocal "I shall not accent renominalion" today had Politicians feverishly trying to figure out the possible 1052 beneficiary or beneficiaries of those 24 million votes Truman polled to confound the experts in 1948 Some .thought they had ,, ,„. doped out. Others just had hopes. Both groups had axes to grind for favorite sons. Neutral observers who witnessed the historic pronouncement of Saturday night preferred to wait and see what hap- ?ens at the nominating conventions Chicago this July. Dangled before the curious were such possible Democratic tickets as these: <3ov. Aclini E. Stevenson of Illi- lois for president snd Sen. Richard 3. Russell of OeorRia for vice pres- dent; and vice versa. Vice President Alben w. Hartley r president and take your pick for second place. Sen. Estes Kefnuver of Tennesee for president or vice president; The same for Sen. Robert S. Kerr of Oklahoma. Speaker of the House Sam Ray>urn of Texas for president and a Northerner for vice president. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas for president and take your choice for vice president Douglas said in January he would not be a candidate then or In the Democratic leaders differed as to whether they thought the President would try to dictate' his successor. Some thought he would adopt a hands-off attitude nnd thus brinjr about a wide-open convention for the first time In 20 years. Others believed he would step in only if he saw the nomination going to someone who docs not stnnd four-square for his foreign nnd domestic program. A third group feels he will try lo persuade Oov. Stevenson lo make a bid for (he nomination or nt least let It bo Known that ho would be receptive to a convention call. Sen.'Oreon ID-RI), a vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told a reporter yesterday he believes Ihere will be "an understanding" on an administration candidate before the convention. Whatever the President does In the coming months, the competition for delegates In the April, May and June primaries and conventions is expected to Ink eon the aspects of a roui?h - and - tumble scrap. They're on their own now and there nre no "If" and "and- r" candidates anymore. And there are party veterans who say the Jul.v 21 convention in Chl- cag owlll be the least controlled since 1832 even If the President tries to exert his Influence. They .say Truman hasn't the hold he used to have on his party organization. They say among other things that: < 1. He waited too long to mafce his announcement of Impending retirement, leaving too short a time before the convention to "build up" possible administration choice for a successor. 2. He made several of his very close associates angry because be allegedly did not take them Into Is confidence beforehand. 3. His belated and Ill-fated entrance Into the New Hampshire primary after calling preferential primaries, eyewash nnd his refusal to back a pro-Truniau "unity" slate of delegate candidates In California cost him considerable prestige both among vank-and-file Democrats and organization lenders. Republicans aspiring to the presidency no doubt will put their pro- convention machines in full speed now that the man they regarded as the strongest the Democrats could put up as decided to let another make the race.
