WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 19-19 GOP to Gei Busy On '50 Platform Two Senators Insist Party Leaders Soon To Agree on Issues ^WASHINGTON, Dec. 7—(/!')— Two GOP senators said yesterday the Republicans are going to draft a 1050 cotiBiesstonal campaign platform despite the difficulty of agree!HR on issues. Senator Brewer of Maine, who heads the parly's senatorial campaign committee, tolci a importer iethinks congressional leaders will W>>> In line behind the proposal of ouy O Galmclsou, the GOP national chairman, for a statement of parly principles. . Breu-ster iatrt that even Senator Taftr of Ohio^who lias opposed the move, has ajjrcjcc! to draft a brief statement of ins ideas and pitch it Into the pot for study by a committee Gabriclson Is expected to name soon. Tall heads the party's Senate Policy Committee and disagrees sharply w ith some of his GOP colleagues, particularly on foreign Policies. In a separate interview. Senator Butler of Nebraska threw his support to the policy statement plan. Butler was named', along with Senator Lodge of Massachusetts, earlier In the year as a Senate representative on a policy committee which former GOP Chairman Hugh. D. Scott, Jr., was forming when a revolt within the national committee cost Scott his Job. "What we need more than a platform Is a slogan that we can lake to the people In the election, something that will put otir Irieaj across," Butler said. "We'll have to draft a statement on principles, too, but it should be brief and to the point." Lodge recently called on Republicans to adopt a "positive" program, asserting that the party can't win next year It It has a "say- -nothlng" attitude and merely op- (^foses Democratic proposals. Bomo of the pressure for a Republican statement apparently Is coming from potential contributors who have demanded that the party say what It stands for before they dig down to support It. Most of this group are said to want a statement attacking about everything that president Truman has Included In what he calls his "fair deal" program.

Su.san never has owned a doll of her own—at least not In the American sense. An old piece of fabric, tied with siring and crudely embroidered "face," was the only "dollie" flic ever had. If Siisaud doesn't get just tlie kind of doll she wants from Santa, ."he'll understand. Her father, the only one in the family household who is employed, explained that Santa must also bring gifts for the five adults and Susan's 12- year-old sister, Christine, all of whom occupy the same four-room apartment in Kansas City.
