Many of these will be National Guardsmen of the 40ih (Southern California) and 45th (Oklahoma) Divisions. Eighth Army spokesmen said ihn new system was put into effect to make up for the lo.s.s of the guardsmen and of the difficulty of Retting replacements. In Washington the Army said It was "a more equitable system . , based on hardships and hazards actually encountered by Individuals In Korea." The slowdown also 'will nffcct American troops In the Ryukyus and The Philippines. Rotation is based on a complex point system. A man is sent homo after receiving points for "30 con- constructive months service."

Barkley Nod To Send Him Into Scramble WASHINGTON w/ — Frieiuis of Vice President Alucn Barkley needed only an exported nod from hint (nday to push him into the scramble for the Democratic presidential nomination. They looked fnr him lo be in the rare within a few days. "Now (hat President Truman has slopped aside. Mr. Bnrkley Is the only man who ran unite the various sviiigs of the Dernoer: I'c party tills fall," Sen. Glllettc-e (D-la) told a reporter. WISCONSIN (Continued (rom Page 1) holding news conferences and meeting people. Some of the best political brains in the slate helped map his campaign and advised him at every step along the way. One of them told this reporter, months ago, 'Wisconsin Is the big ona for us. This is the one we're concentrating on." Previous Votes Remembered ' Taft was defeated In New Hampshire by Oen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. Not long afterward, Eisenhower received an unprecedented 100,000 votes, all of them written in on the ballot, In Minnesota. Consequently, observers feel that Taft needs a smashing victory In Wisconsin to offset these earlier developments. In llth hour statements, he expressed confidence and said he expected to win either 22 or 24 of the volal of 30 delegates. No Estimate Given Two Negroes Fined On Assault Charges Two Negroes were fined in Municipal Court this mornin? on charges of assault with a deadly ;vca[H)n growing out of two separate fights last 'nisht. Henry Blown was fined S75 and costs on his plea of guilty to the charge. He was charged with striking another N'ergo, Charley Kim;, on the head with a bottle. Twenty-one stitches were required to the wound in King's head, officers said Mnttie Richardson was fined S50 and cost.s on a similar charge. She was characrt with stabbing her husband in the back with a knife during a fight In a Negro cafe.

Thi£ is Warren's first primary. Stnssen competed in New Hampshire, and won a majority of the Minnesota delegates. Eisenhower is not a candidate in this election. And, unlike Minnesota, hi.s name cannot be written on Wisconsin ballots. They don't count here, Kefauvcr's position was different from thai of any of the Republican contestants. ' He came into Wisconsin with a 1 considerable degree of popularity,; started, hi.s friends say, by his; televised appearance during the 1 Senate crime investigating committee hearings a year ago. i He then began another of his' leisurely, apparently effortless campaigns, visiting with peo- ! pie on the streets and in small meetings, malting few major! speeches. i Kefauver's opposition formed under t\vo slates, each claiming to 1 represent the President — before' Truman made known his decision '. not to run ngnln.
