Editorial The GOP In Transition REPORTS THAT GEN. DWIG11T EISENHOWER has asked "* ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge to be a Republican candidate In 1964 add more fuel to the fires of rumor which have been burning brightly during the present so-called political moratorium. Soma doubt is cast on the firmness of the report, since Elsenhower says he has not talked to Lodge on this matter, and Lodge, from his post in Viet Nam, says the same. Lodge has been saying he has no intention of running in 1954. But when asked about the Eisenhower reports, he was quoted PS hedging to the extent of observing that lie would consider ''with respect" any proposal by his old friend, the general. That this kind of thing gets such quick currency illustrates the confusion evident In Republican circles over their 1964 choice. And it should point up a caution in gauging the political factors at work. To take the latter question first, there is no historical evidence that any effort by a former president to promote a specific candidacy has automatically projected the choice into serious consideration for the nomination. Presidential nominating politics seldom operates by the "great man" theory, under which it. is presumed when a figure of great prestige in the party si>eaks his choice the nomination will Speedily fall to the chosen candidate. Former President Hairy Truman had virtually no effect in Jtcent times when he endorsed Avorell Ha'rriman in 1956 and Ben. Stuart Symington in 1960. Some observers think Richard Nixon got the 1960 GOP nomination in spite of Eisenhower tather than because of him. Nominations actually are achieved by an incredibly complex series of interactions at the national and state level. They are won by delegate votes, not by verbal assertions. And the way the votes go represents, in the end. the realistic betting by thousands of political professionals as to who has the best chance of being elected. There are, too, countless delegates who simply vote their favorite. But unless this happens to coincide with the hard Judgment as to who can win, they will be overwhelmed. The big point is that words from Eisenhower or Truman or Adlai Stevenson or others of high stature have extremely limited influence unless they match well with the collective decisions Of those who actually do the nominating. Politics is not so certain a business that a man of Lodge's position could be flatly ruled out. But it is plain that as of now not too many party professionals favor him. The rank and file of party men in many areas still prefer Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona. He has a hard block of potential delegate votes that is not chipping off. It may be in the range of 400 votes. Admittedly he is hurt by the emergence of President Johnson as the probable Democratic nominee, for this puts in doubt Goldwater's election strategy founded on capture of most Old South states. But the alternatives to Goldwater are not at all clear. Nixon and Pennsylvania's Gov. William Scranton are said to have been elevated in prospect, but nothing really measurable is going for neither yet. The truth is the Republicans are in a period ot transition, and they are as puzzled as any onlooker as to which direction their party will move when the rumor factory slows down and the hard business of choosing is pressed in earnest after Christmas. BAKER: I>residcnt Johnson will sign an executive order opening to the Senate Rules Committee the income tax returns of Robert G. Baker, former secretary to the Senate's Democrats who resigned under fire Oct. 7. The committee has asked for access to the returns as it investigates possible conflict-of- interest activities by present and former Senate employes- White House press secretary Pierre Salinger said Saturday an executive order is being prepared (or Johnson's signature. LIFT OFF: Tlir airlift or a 15,000-man Army infantry division to Korea has been postponed indefinitely. Recommended for March bv the Joint Chiefs of Staff, it will not be held during the fiscal year which ends June .10. The Pentagon gave no reason in I confirming the postponement [ Saturday. Informed sources hinted President Johnson's an-, nouncixl economy drive was a | major factor. NO SOAP: The Federal Trade Commission has ordered Procter & Gamble Co. to sell Ihe Clorox Chemical Co., acquired six years ago by the giant firm. The commission said Saturday the acquisition produced economics only in advertising discounts available to Procter & Gamble, the nation's largest producer of household cleaning products. In Cincinnati, Howard Morgens. president of Procter & Gamble, said the decision will be appealed to federal courts.

Dear Mrs. Lawrence: I'm 17 and really thought that the fellow I'm writing about loved me as much as I love him. My problem is that he hasn't called i me since one night last week I when he got mo to go to bis ! house by saying his parents ' were at home. They were out for the evening and we got into a terrible fight because I wouldn't let him make out the way he wanted. I'm going crazy, but my parents say I should he ashamed to want to call him after what happened. AXSWKIl: Why "ashamed"? You want to call this boy to free yourself from him. And need more evidence of his dis- ! interest in you to do it. You're , still hooked on the hope that I he likes you enough to unrler- . stand your refusal. You need 1 to test this hope by calling him. That's nothing to be ashamed about at all. Let me talk to your father and mother. Dear parents, it's clear to you thai this boy isn't worth I your daughter's interest. But j you're older than site is. You've lived longer - - and know that a I person who'll lie to get himself I sexual release will lie to get 1 himself other forms of satis- ! taction. j But your 17-year-old daugh- 1 tor doesn't, yet know this. She needs to learn it. If she tele-; phones this boy, she may. He'll; lie to her again, excusing his failure to call her with some trumped-up story just as he trumped up the lie of his parents' presence to get her to enter his house with him. Time was when girls could afford to respect the rule that forbids the female to pursue tbe male. But that was the time when they eon Id depend on their parents to produce responsible prospects for lius- Imnds. Now they have to forage for reliable husbands themselves. Instead of letting Papa check on the young male's income, reputation and background, they have to test his reliability themselves. they are inexperienced In judging reliability, they may have to test it several times. They may have to telephone the boy who has disappointed them once in order to give him a chance to disappoint them twice. They can't afford the maidenly modesty that was appropriate to maidens whose parents judged their young men for them. Let this child make her call. The boy will lie again. Next time a male-on-the-make li^s to her, she may not have to call him. She'll know what you 1 know. ' AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) — Gov. John Connally of Texas, wounded by the sniper who killed President Kennedy, has been released from an Austin hospital and says, "I feel fine—a bit weak—but fine." Doctors told Connally he would be on his feet by Christmas. "But right now I'm just ex- eh,'inging a bed at the hospital for a bed at home," said the Democratic governor, once secretary of the Navy in the Kennedy administration. Connally was riding with the President in Dallas Nov. 22 when a sniper fired three bullets into the open car. One tore through Connally's chest and right wrist and lodged in his left thigh. He was in Dallas' Parkland Hospital until Dec. 5, when he returned home. Last Tuesday, Connally was taken to an Austin hospital for treatment of an inflamed vein in his right leg, the result of a blood clot. in PM MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Higher-up who is not In good mood should Ite avoided studiously.
