But he said he docs not think Truman "wants tht job" again. Kefauver said on a radio program he is hot running for second place, and if Truman run again and offers his backing tr Kefauver for the vice prcsidcntia lomination, he would not "be interested at all." .The president, who jias not repealed his 1952 plans, figured In two other developments: Senator Aikcn (R-Vt) said he thinks the president withdraw from Ihe Democratic presidcntia primary in New Hampshire "because Senator Kefauver would have beaten the tar out of him." Senator Maybank (D-SC) declined to tell newsmen on a television show whether he would support Truman if the president is the Democratic nominee for reelection. He recently .said he wat opposed to Truman, and would support Senator Russell (D-Ga) Senator ' T a f t (R-Ohio), firsl Republican to announce for the GOP nomination, yesterday would not .comment on a resolution designed to get his name entered in Oregon's primary in May. The Oregon State GOP Committee passed the resolution Saturday. In. Washington, political sources said Republicans backing Gen. D w i g h t . D. Eisenhower for president soon will make known his recorded views on taxes, labor farm and many other domestic ssues. They are c o m b i n g through his speeches, letters and nemoranda as background for the camoaign document. To Propose Bill Other developments: Representative Javits (R-Lib- VY) said he wlil introduce a bill :oday requiring state officials to ·ice'that servicemen receive "data 'n candidates and what they stand or according to information provided by the candidates themselves." The New York Times sa.vs Democratic leaders have virtually decided on New York dclegatcs- t-largc to the national convention, nd t h a t significantly the list docs lot include the name of Federal ecllrity Administrator O s c a r Ewing. It said the omission was deliberate and "brings into the open he fact" Ewing is in the political loghouse as far as New York cadcrs are concerned. Among hose listed are former Postmaster general James A. Farley, Senator .chrnan (D-Lib-NY), and Mrs. 'ranklin D. Roosevelt. In Memphis, Rep. Albert Gore .nnounccd his candidacy for the United Slates Senate. It places he 44-year-old Tcnnesseean in a ace with 83-year-old Sen. Ken- clh McKcllnr. ion at the meeting.
