Farm Leader Is Given Answer to Economy Bid Allen B. Kline, a farmer himself and president of the American Farm Bureau, recently astounded the professional bureaucrats by going to Washington and asking that substantial cuts be made in Agriculture Department funds. Mr. Kline, who has been a Mississippi County visitor, appeared before a House Agriculture Appropriations subcommittee and very frankly told the group that he thought it was time that government spending was whipped into line. This is a national emergency, he said, nnd the budget should he trimmed into shape including cuts for agriculture "which directly affect us." This must set some sort of a record for unselfishness. The Farm Bureau has long been regarded as one of Washington's most effective lobbies. But even this organization has sensed that now truly is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. Mr. Kline did not get the reception one would expect from our professed economy-minded Congress. Said Mississippi's Whilten, who heads the subcommittee: "It is disturbing ... to see the head of the Farm Bureau come in here and recommend curtailment of programs so vital in my judgment to the welfare of the nation." Not nearly so disturbing, Mr. Congressman, as this remark will appear to taxpayers who figure Mr. Kline probably knows better than you just what the farmer must have. Truman's Exit May Unify Warring Party Factions In announcing his intention not to seek re-election or respond to a draft, President Truman did what most political soothsayers thought he would. He fooled them only on his timing. \et. given the desire to retire, there should have been no surprise in the liming. For the President could not have waited much longer and still hope to have a decisive voice in the selection of his Democratic successor. We must assume that Mr. Truman does indeed wish lo exercise such a voice, even though he has not openly contradicted Frank McKinney, Democratic national chairman, in his statement that the President wants an open convention. Any chief executive has so compell- ing an interest in the furtherance of hia own programs that he can hardly pit idly by while the inheritors of his power contend for first position. He wants to make sure the "right man" gets the nomination. Though Mr. Trumnn has not yet said so, evidence indicates strongly that he regards Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois as that man. These signs have been numerous enough lo convince many top Democrats which way the President leans, and already some of these have begun organizing a move to draft the reluctant Stevenson. A few words from Mr. Truman would make their iask easy, Ijul, even without them these Democrats will lie able to make hay with the declaration that "Truman wants Stevenson." The fact is, the Democratic regulars in Congress nnd elsewhere are predisposed to favor Stevenson. The Illinois governor is plainly acceptable to all wings and all geographic sections of the Democratic. Party. This cannot be said of any other candidate now in the field. That does not mean he is :i certainty for the nomination, Kcntilor ICofauvcr is a serious contender unless and until he begins losing heavily in the many primaries he has entered. To the extent he goes on winning, the July convention in Chicago would indeed be an open affair. But Kefauver is not a.s acceptable either to the South or the North as is Stevenson. Senator Russell of Georgia, sure to slay in the race lo the finish, has the even greater handicap of full identity with the South, while Senator Ken- of Oklahoma will find il. hard to shake off the tag of "rich man pursuing selfish business interests." Against Vice President Barklcy is his advanced age. Nevertheless, it is now fair to say that anything can happen in the next four months. Once n President makes known his intent to drop the reins, lie cannot be sure how effective his voice will be thereafter. His control of the situation may prove far from perfect. Whatever the future holds, Mr. Truman by his determination not to run has acted to unify the Democratic Party ns il has not been welded for many years. Assuming that the New Democratic nominee is reasonably acceptable, to (he South, the parly will be able lo count upon Ihe loyal support of the southerners in the fall. Wilh the President as nominee, this would not have been true. The South was showing every sign^ of breaking lines to back GeneraV-~Eisenhowcr should he become the Republican nominee. If the nod were to go to Senator Taft, the prospect was for another and larger Dixiecral defection that might have thrown the election into the House of Representatives. The Democrats may not get a campaigner now with the same fighting spirit as Mr. Truman. But most observers feel this loss would be more than offset by a reunified Democratic Party If that unity is in fact gained, the Democrats should be tougher to beat next fall. And that should be the case no matter who the Republicans choose in July.

The swiftly moving events, of Sunday indicate thai Ibis will be Ihe basis of administration birt lor the November vote.

A Trv-nan endorsement before that, tossing the torch to any particular candidate, might become n hot kiss of death. After th c convention. Truman support would be welcomed. Big puzzle in Truman's refusal to run again is what it will do in candidacy of Georgia Sen. Richard Russell.

State and local bosses, in Washington after the big dinner, were at first inclined to be indignant a the way President Truman had stir prised everyone.

Next day Fitzpatrick Issued a formal statement, praising t h i President's action any saving it wa, not unexpected. * • * PROPHETS who kept insistin President Truman was going to run are now coming forward with thesir explanations. The case of one senator, who naturally doesn't want to be identified now. is an example. Just before President Truman went to Key West, this senator went to the White House to advise the President to make known his intention.';. The President ran down the list of potential candidates and checked them off. This one was too old. This one wnsn't well enough known. This one wouldn't do.

Then he could take the ace of diamonds, ruff a diamond, and ruff the club in dummy. East could over-ruff, if he liked, but the slam would be safe. "South claims that the third round of clubs was almost as safe as the third round of epade.s would have been. He chose the club attempt first because even when disaster struck he still had a chance to drop the jack of .spades. "Who is right?" If South tries to get two ruffs in dummy, he must guess which black suit will go nrouncl three times. The difference between the two Is so small (considering South's point about the jack of spades) that the choice could interest only a mathematician. The best line of play seems to have been overlooked by everybody. South should win the first trick with the ace of hearts, enter dummy with the ace of spades, and return the eight of hearts from dum- ny. If East is a first class player, he cover with the ten of hearts- good, however, a low heart in the miserable hope that South will miscruess. If East does play a low heart, the eight wins the trick. South next get.s to his hand with the king of clubs to ruff the ten of spades with dummy's last tramp. Now twelve tricks are cold. Even If East covers the eight hearts with the t«n. South is In ;ood shape. He wins with the jack leads a trump to dummy's nine cashes the ace of diamonds anc ruffs a diamond in his'hand.
