Democratic Field Narrowed Conversly, Democratic defeats f narrowed the 1952 field for their party by eliminating such prospect* as Senators Lucas in Illinois, Myers in Pennsylvania, find Tydings in Maryland ang Gov. Bowks In Connecticut. The fact that (he Republicans showed their greatest gains in the Midwest and Far West — putting back In the GOPJold several states which were a big fncfor it] President Truman's 1948 triumph—could; prompt the minority party to go j west for their 1952 ticket. j But the picking will not be easy, f Members of both the old guard and! more progressive wings of the GOP made good showings In (.he mid- ' term elections, and the 1952 convention might easily be another lug of war between the Dewey ami Taft followers. ' As of now, the Republicans can see at least nine men who could; vir.v likely be considered for either the Presidential or Vice Presidential nominations In 1952. : They are Govs, E^rl Warren, of California and Thomas E. Dewey o.' New York, Senator Robert A. Taft of Ohio, Senator-Elect James H. Dili/ of Pennsylvania, Gen, Divlght J I).

But Dewy by his New York victory this week has assured himself control of the largest ne- iniblk-an delegation to the 1952 con- ve-ntlnn—a delegation that usually backs the man who gels the noml- nnlion. Warren undoubtedly would loom larsc in the first choice prnsoects coming from the state now rank- in? second among the 48 In population and having the same inun ber of electoral votes as second- ranking Pennsylnnla In the 105'.' election.
