^TUESDAY, AUGUST 8, 19M Dewey Adheres To Decision on No More Politics Honley Destined At Successor; New York Senate Race 'in Air' V By JACK BKI.L " WASHINGTON. Aug. 8. <>Tf — Senator Ives (R-NY) said today he has given up attempts lo convince Thomas E. Dewey that Dewey ought to run for a. third term as governor of New York. (| I think the governor has made up his mind to retire to private life and I'm afraid nobody can change his decision," Ives told a reporter. Ives said he thinks Joseph Hanley, 74-year-old lieutenant governor, i.% almost certain lo be the Republican nominee for governor. The New York Senator added that the Senatorial race seems to be "completely up in the air." Dewey's action in turning over his August speaking engagements to Hanley and in lending the lien- tenant governor the services of his secretary and campaign publicity director, James Hngerly, has been interpreted as a Dewey endorsement of Hanley. A reported scramble among eligible Republicans for the lieu tenant governor nomination, to run ^n the ticket with Hanley, apparently will delay any decision on the Senatorial race until shortly before the OOP state convention In September. Several Republicans considered eligible for the Senatorial nomination also are on the available list for the lieutenant governor race nd some apparently are more in- ires'ted in the state than the na- ional office. Seeks Seven Seats New York Is one of the states singled out by Republicans in their drive to pick up the seven seats they need to wrest control of the Senate from the Democrats In the November election. Some New York Republicans apparently think they would have a better chance of carrying the stale and putting a Senatorial nominee across if Dewey ran again. They have been sponsoring a draft-Dewey drive. Senator Lehman fD-Lib-NY) U assured of Democratic and Liberal Party nomination In the Senatorial race. The Democrats choice fnr governor still Is up in ihe air. Republicans gave some signs, meanwhile, of adding Oklahoma to the list of states where they will put on big scale efforts to knock off Democratic Senators. GOP leaders have announced they will bring the Rev. Bill Alexander, their Senatorial nominee, to Washington . later-this- month for conferences with party officials. Alexander, pastor of an Oklahoma ity church, quit the campaign for he Democratic Senatorial nomination to switch to the Republican race end win It. The last Republican Senator elected from Oklahoma, Ed Moore, made the same sort of party switch before he von In 1942. Alexander will be opposing Rep. Mike Monroney, who whipped Sen- iitor Elmer Thomas in two primary battles to win the Democratic nomination. BLYTHEVIUJ5, (ARK.)
