Across the state in deep South Texas, former governor W. i^ee O'Daniel blasted Daniel withoui mentioning his name. O'Daniei said "the lml« junior senator" couldn't be considered as a contender becayse he was a former member of the Veterans Land Board a.nd wa? being 1 run to hush up the veterans land scandals.

The George Parr issue conan- ned to be a subject as hot as the weather. Parr's endorsement of Daniel— which was atiickiy repudiated by the junior sena.tor — brought another exchange between Daniel and Ralph Tarborougti. Daniel attacked Yarboroug-h with a charge that he "has been and continues to be the favored candidate of George Parr a.nd all other bosses with whom he has made deals." The exchange was prompted by Yarborou.sKs earlier charge that "Georpe Parr must be surprised that his bosom friend. Price Daniel ha.s spurned support of the 'Duke of Duval.'

GOP Urged To Recruit Labor Vote By RAVMUM) 1.AHR I'nitt'd Pross Staff Corrnitpondonl WASHINGTON iKP)—Georjre 1. Bloom, new Pennsylvania Republican chairman. Is urging pai-ty ccunly leadpT.s in his state to :re- cniit rank - and - file labor union members .into the party organizS- tion. His action is one example of quiet efforts reported in a number of two-party industrial suites to court the labor vote. The GOP moves have been o.n- uouraged by the party's national headquarters, which is understood to have two Reid men advising the state organizations how to ap- j.<eal to rank - and - file union members. Other political developments. The Democratic convention arrangements committee gathered in Chicag-o today to select a keynote speaker for Ihe Democratic convention. Among- those mentioned for the job were Govs. Frank Clement of Tennessee. Edmund Muski of Maine, George Trader of Pennsylvania and Robert B. Meyner of New Jersey: .Sens. Hubert Humphrey i Minn i. Paul Douglas tUli. John F. Kennedy iMsss) and Kob- eri Kerr f'Oklai. Kentucky Oov. A. B. Chandler snid S'mri«y lie behoves - A .dla.i Stevenson is "a bit weaker" as a vote-getter than he was four years npo while 'President 'Eisenhower is "just as strong." New York Mayor Robert Wagner told a news conference Sunday at Asheville. N.C.. that he is not actively seeking' the Democratic, vice presidential nomination but is available for it if offered. A United Press sm-vey showed today that Stevenson still is ahead o other Democratic contenders with 36S',2 indicated first - ballot convention votes. Sen. Esies Kefauver has 163 and Harriman 1ST. The number necessaiy for nomination is fiSS'i. Tn his efforl* to woo the labor vote. Bloom wrote Viis county chairmen to ask all members of county Republican committee whether they or any members of their families belong' to unions; He also wanted the committee members to report the names of GOP ur.ionisis in various precincts. He suggested thai these names could provide the nucleus for rank- and file labor committees in the counties. Most of labor's organized political activity has been thrown behind Democratic candidates. But Republicans have questioned whether union leaders could "deliver" a labor vote and have claimed evidence of a pickup in labor support for GOP candidates. Since many of the ranking: union leaders have been politically active for the Democrats, the" GOP has looked toward the rank-and- file. (Continued Krom Page On<") not. bf?n working- out The T,. A.

"I'm telling you precisely that,' 1 Knowland replied. "He and we are looking: forward to a. vigorous and active campaign under his leadership," Knowland added. Regardless of all discussion, Knowland said. "the. fact remains he's in Hie race." Knowland said 1he President told him "he felt he is in better shape titan he was when he made the announcement last Feb. 29" that he was jroing' to run for a second term. Knowland said Mr. Elsenhower feels he is JIISL continuing' his previous plans to run. Knowland said he had not Ooubt- ed that the President would run. Bui he added with H smile, "This clarines the atmosphere'." The announcement ended the new wave of speculation about the 'President's second term intentions which followed his .Tune 9 operation for an iniee-itinal obstruction. On Feb. 29 — five months after his Sept. 24 heart attack — Mr. Eisenhower told the nation that he intended to run 'or another term. The announcement carne. after months of speculation and doubt. After the President's recent illness, there again arose the- question whether Mr. Eisenhower would run. Almost from the beginning, however. Republicans were sure the President would stay in the race. The circumstance.* of today's announcement contrasted sharply with the manner in which, the President originally announced his second term intentions. His Feb. 29 announcement was made at a jam-packed White: House new? conference after weeks of uncertainty and suspense over his Intentions. That night, the President wont on radio and television to explain his decision to the nation. Today's announcement came almost casually. Knowland said Ihe word that the President is still a candidate came up about midway in his discussion of the current legislative program •.vith Knowland and other Republican loaders. The acttial confirmation. Knowland said, came during' a discussion of the administration's embattled foreign aid program. At this poini. Knowland said the President "made it very clear thai, he is goincf to make a vigorous fight" for the mutual security program, "during- the campaign." "He said he was going to take n very vigorous interest in this legislation during 1he campaign. His remarks made then left no doubt that, the President will be a candidate in November. Knowland in response to questions said that the President did not know that the Republican lenders were going 1o make the dramatic announcement to reporters. But he said he harl -told 'he President that: 1hey were g-oing to talk with newsmen about their rneelinsr with him here at Gettysburg College. Knowland swid the President's plans came up "naturally." Canada, with a population of some 15 million, consumes 25 per cent of all United States commercial exports. The H. S. buys about M per cent of all Canadian exports.
