J. Howard McGrath, national Democratic chairman, maintained today that President Truman would bo nominated on the first ballot at the Democratic convention next month despite a new "Draft Eisenhower" boom. "I don't regard Gen. Eisenhower as a candidate and I think the delegates to the national convention understand that he is not," McGrath declared in a news conference here. McGruth's statement contrasted sharply with views voiced by El- Ijoll Roosevelt, who told an Eisenhower-for-President ra 1 1 y last night: "It he (Eisenhower) likes the Republican ticket, then he better come out right away, because assume the leading role--a sus laincd frontal assault on the Demo crntic administration's conduct o foreign policy, On the broad shoulders of 1) running mate will fall a larg shore of the burden of winnln the west for the GOP next Nov ember.

AFTER READING LETTER Roosevelt made his slalemen after reading a hitherto unpublish ed letter from Eisenhower dealing with the subject of a possible pol itical career. It said: "When I made a public stale' mcnt last January referring to a possible political career, I did i only after earnest study to deter, mine lhe field in which I miglr possibly be of some future usefulness. "I am anxious lo do my duty but felt that it was my own problem to determine whether or not a sense of duty could call me into the political field," Roosttvelt said the leller was written June 15 to Leslie E, Schwartz, president of the New York City' Washington heights branch ot the Americans for Democratic Action, It replied, Roosevelt said to an invitation from Schwartz asking Eisenhower to attend Insi night's meeting, FAILS TO STATE FACT Roosevelt told tho meeting thai Eisenhower--now president of Columbia university--"has failed to state in any way that he would not regard n true draft as an overriding reason" for dropping his opposition to political candidacy. Only a few hours before lhe meeting at which Rooseveli spoke the president's office at Columbia university said there had been absolutely no change in Eisenhower's position since his public stand of last Jan, 23. At that time he wrote this to a New Hampshire newspaper publisher who had been advocating :iis nomination by Republicans: "I could not accept the nomination even under the remote circumstances that it were tendered ;o me," Eisenhower's office added that any reports to the contrary arc false.

Russia Building Up Case to Send Troops to Area? American Ideas on Yugoslav Situation By ALEX SINGLETON London--(/I 3 )--American diplomatic sources in Horns snld toddy Russia may be building up n caso lo send troops to Yugoshwln, The Kremlin-ruled Cominform denounced the Communist rulers oC the Balkan country yesterday. Premier Marshal Tito, his whereabouts still a mystery, was castigated by mime nnd told in effect cither to autiere to the parly lino or lo be replaced. Tanjug, the official Yugoslav news iigoney, said it expected a statement from Tito today. The Italian radio said miirtlnl Inw was declared In Yugoslavia, but a dispatch telephoned from Belgrade to PraRue salt! this was emphatically denied In the Yugo- salv capital. The Belgordc correspondent oC the Associated Press said there was a story lhat miirllul law was declared around NIs, near the Bulgarian border, to ullow police ami soldiers to evacuate persons from a flood zone. The story could not, be confirmed because of, poor communications, The Cominform had accused Tito and other Communist leaders of pursuing a hateful policy toward Russia, leaning toward tliu western powers, conducting a "wrong" foreign nnd domestic policy and departing from tha Marxist-Leninist line, The Cominform bla,!t, first published in Prague, accused Tito and his top aides of pursuing a hateful policy toward Russia, of leaning toward the west and of departing from the party line by "undertaking an entirely wrong policy on the principal questions of foreign rind internal politics, From all appearances, the denunciation caught many Communists flal-footed, since tha reaction was not so prompt os is customary. There was no immediate- comeback from Inside Yugoslavia. Tito himself was roportod to bo nt his summer homo in Bied, in. northwestern Yugoslavia. A high Yugoslav diplomatic source in Home declared "Marshal Tito is still in power." That was last night, At Lake Success, Dr, Jan Papa- nok, former Czech UN delegate expressed belief that Tito may bo in grave personal danger, whllo high U.S. diplomatic officials In Washington expressed the opinion that the Yugoslav marshal nnd his associates may already havo been "taken core of." By "taken care of," they meant) Tito may havo been removed nu head of Yugoslavia's government, or merely "Immobilized" for n period of thinking and repentance ·or liquidated. The text of the Cominform's 3,000-\vord blast seemed to indicate that Tito and his men muy yet have a chance, It said, ut one point: "Tho aim of these sound elements ot the Communist party £ Yugoslavia is to force their present leading factors lo confess openly nnd honestly their faults and correct them, To port from lalionnlism; to return to inter- latiormlism and in every way to fix the united socialistic front against imperialism. Or if · the jrcscnt leaders of the Communist arty of Yugoslavia prove unuble to do this task, to change them and lo raise from below u new 'nternatlonallsllc leadership C .ho Communist party in Yugoslavia, The information bureau docs not doubt that the Communist mrly can fulfill this task," Nonetheless, the Comlnfonn ·statement showed, this will be im uphill struggle, because by ro- cent acts: "The central committee of Iho Communist parly of Yugoslavia juts Itself and Ihc Yugoslav Com- nui.isl party outside the family if brotherly Communist parties, ·utside the Communiil Front and, herofore, outside the rank o£ tho nformatlon bureau," American and British officials n Germany thought perhaps Yugoslavia's -strong desire for goods rom the west--including machinery and manufactured goods- night have had somo connection with Tito's troubles. First signs of dissension inslda Yugoslavia were seen when Sreen Zujovic and Andrea Hebron?, ormer ministers in the govern- ncnt, were purged. Cominform old they were thrown out of tho arty "because they had dared to ritlolze the anti-Soviet conccp- ions of the leaders and to express icmsclvcs for the friendship o£ Jugoslavia with Soviet Russia." Some saw it as another hint of rouble when Marshal Tito's 06th, Irthday passed last May 26 with- ut the cuytomary congrolula- ory message from Prime Minis- cr Stalin. In London, Yugoslav diplomats aid no severance of, relations bo- ween Yugoslavia and other Red elt nations is involved; that it means only a party split, They aid that while the Cominform as no disciplinary power as such, has the right to point out devl- tlons from the party lino by idlviduals, groups or whole pares.
