TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1949 BLYTHEVIUJ: (ARK.) COUWW K8W» PAGE FIVB Barkleys Remark Hints of Same £ rkons « Sto * c T- I M f r\ M. ' mco Ticket for Democrats in 19D2 Honors Osceolo By Jack Hell WASHINGTON, Dec. 20. f/P) — VUre President BarkU-y's prediction tlie Democrats will keep on winning forever stirred speculation today of a Trunuivt-Biirktey encore ticket In 1952. It ['resident Truman has decided he .su't uoiliR to run again, ho hasn't told the politicians. The little signs by which a president's intentions are jvidgerl a\l seem to point tire other way. And no one in Washington doubts that It Mr. Trmuan does run again, tru- ebullient Barkley will be avall- ^able for the second slot on the Vj^.et. His fricmls can't IniaEiue. (STrklcy bowini! out of the picture afier tour years of the kind of fun he is having IwiuR vice president. As Ihe Veep- a name his grandchildren laKRrd on him by running l!ic letters 'V.P.' together—Barkley is cutting a wide political and social swath. As he himself puts it. he is "old John Stuck" when the party needs a top orator to rally the faithful at a moi'.o.y raising banquet or a national broadcast such as the Democrats are"coming up with uary 4. 1'reskleiit Truman gets to duck a tot of these chores because Bprklcy loves to talk and can rip oft a political speech at the drop of a hat. Predicts Successes narktey came, up with his most optimistic forecast at Miami, Fla.. lasr week. He said it is his candid Judgment that In the 1950 congressional elcrfinns. in the 1952 presidential tace and "throughout the years of the future" voters will continue to give the Democrats a majority. Republicans Indicated they don't think much of the vice president n Bolhtcal 5eer. Said Senator Brcwstcr of Maine, tbe GOP senatorial campaign committee chairman: "That sounds just like tbe Republicans talked In October. 1948." At that time, some Republicans thought they had the Truman- 1 Barkley ticket so badly beaten the election would be a shoo-in for i^m. It didn't happen that wav. '"If the Democrats offer the Trn- man-Barklev ticket as a repeater in 1952. it will be one a! tl:0 most vulnerable ever presented to the American voter.s. In May of that year. Mr. Truman will'be GB years old. If elected, he would tie William Henry Harrison, who died after a month in office, as the oldest president. f™ ™ JONESHORO, Dec. 20. W'J—I;. W.
