McClellon Would Be Tough Opponent for McMath McMalh opponents Rtcefiilly jumped on Ihe report that organized labor ia becking: Hie Governor Hot only in his race for governor but. will also extend him hacking when, they say, he attempts to unseat Arkansas' senior Senator, John L. McClellan, two years from now. A newspaper, published in \VashiiiK- ton, D.C., in the interest of 1!) rnilroiul labor unions, stated that it will back McMath in both races. A letter being circulated by labor leaders in Arkansas Raid the same thing. Even if elected to R third term, we predict the Governor will have no small amount of difficulty in getting Senator McClellan's senatorial post. The Senator is a veteran campaigner and his record attests to both his honesty and ability. \Ve think the folks back home, who'll actually be doing the voting should McMath make the race two years hence, will look with more favor on Senator McClellan than the ambitious McMath. \Ve also pi-edict they will resent Ihe intervention into Arkansas affairs that has been made in this small way by the official organ of 10 labor unions. The voter will undoubtedly feel an alliance between tin's group and President Tvu- man who is outspokenly fond of McMath. The reaction should be anything but that desired by the Governor's supporters. Danes Need West's Trade; Let's Find a Way to Deliver For a while (here was gn>;it to-do over the fact thai Denmark was delivering R 13.0004011 tanker to Russia, R business transaction that provoked Washington to warn that l.'.S. military and economic aid might be withdrawn if (lie Danes went through with the deal. Now that the tanker has been delivered, after all. and Washington's protest lias faded to a faint muttering, like a passing thunderstorm, it turns out that Denmark was living up to a contract made with Russia long before the U.S. imposed a ban on the export of strategic materials to Iron Curtain countries. Nobody in the Western world tikes to see Russia being supplied with anything that ia embraced by the term strategic. But Italy and The Netherlands have been shipping materials behind the Iron Curtain, too, without feeling any pinch on their aid from the United States. Like Italy and The Netherlands, Denmark has to do husincss with somebody to keep alive. She .can't swap ber copious food products with Knxland for coal, because Knglnnd hasn't tlie coal to spare. Siu! can't export cheese to America any more—although chets.c has been nne of Denmark's biggest dullnr trade items—because we've built a new tariff wail on foreign cheese. Maybe the answer would Ije to find a way (or Denmark to do more business witli the West. After all, it's a little hard lo condemn the Danes for living up to the sanctity of a contract, particularly in an ago wlion i( |)rokeii promise seems to be the rule rather than the exception. Old Sea Glory Flies With New Ocean Liner In the days when clipper ships slid down the ways of New Kngland shipyards and .set their courses for Die seven seas, America's merchant marine ruled the seas. When the clippers were relegated to limbo hy iron ships, our merchant mariners begun wallowing in Hie wake of oilier nations. A proud new liner with a proud old name — the S. S. United Slates — has brought back our sea-going glory again. Not since 1851, when the .steamer Pacific crossed in nine days, 10 hours and 25 minutes, has an American merchant' ship flown the mythical blue ribbon of Atlantic .supremacy. '('lie new liner's speed—35 knots or •1! mph — may not seem fast in this atomic age. Hut it's still something lo stir Hie deads of Americans to know the fastest ship on all the oceans flies the Stars itntl Stripes. Views of Others E!bow Room Need Doubtless you saw it, too — that Wlrephoto from Emporia, Kan,, showing General Eisenhower trying to shako hands with well-wishers from the icar end of his streamlined train. The cancel-In tall end of a streamliner railroad coach is a monstrosity in American politics, it is humiliating beyond words.

And it probnblv will. Uy tradition nnd nalurnl inclination, the Democrats have alu-nvs put on n better show than the Republicans.

Is recognition and (in official blessing from President Harry S. Truman. Up lo now Oov. Adlal Stevenson of Illinois has had The Nod held out In Jront of him on a silver platter. But-since he has been so reluctant to grab it and run. there is now considerable belief that The Not! will be given to W. Averell Harriman of New York.

Diviuhl Eisenhower, of course, hangs over the Democratic fracns. If Senator Tuft, had been Ihe GOP nominee, every democrat from precinct cotiimil- teeman up would have wanted to take him on. Against General Eisenhower, there may be some reluctance to run. The 16 Demncrnls— and there, may be others who crawl out of | the stockyards woodwork—break down in three main groups. Heading Ihu list, are the Four Favorites. First is Sen. Esies Kefauver of Tennessee, who claims from 300 to 400 dcle^a'e votes and actually'has a little over 250 nailed down. IJehind him is Sen, Richard Russell of Georgia, wilh a claim of 300-vote first-ballot slrcngdi nnd a firm count of nround 150. Almost All Slates Have Fractional Voles The Democratic convention will have 1230 votes, with 616 necessary for a choice. But of the 1230 delegates, 836 district delegate, will have & full voti 088 win have a hall .. lor a sub-total of 344. This means that nearly state will have fractional tie*.

Paul Douglas of Illinois. Others in this group arc Chief Justice Fred Vinson nnd Federal Security Administrator Oscar Ewiug wiih two apiece; ex-Sen. Scott Lucas of Illinois and Justice Bill Douglas of Illinois. Last but not least, as the nth possible starter there is the old maestro himself, President Truman. He .says he's not running.

The interesting thing about this Seven Sons group is that together they have ISO pledged delegates' votes. This Isn't enough to give any one of the Four Favorites the nomination. But it would give any candidate a big shove if it could be mustered behind him by the-political bosses. It probably can't. Dem ocrals just don't agrea on things that easily. The Democrats, it should be explained, don't count noses the way 'the Republicans do.
