Bruce Biosatl · DREW PIAM0N / Waithlngton-- Prl«ndi of Pft»(dtnt Truman attribute the following reasons ror lil« historic de- clflon not to run nsain. First, the wishes of Mrs. Truman; 2. his a|e -he would have been, if ieltcteoYthe oldest preil- dcnt ever to tak* the ooth of office; 3. the idvlc* of party le«cl«rs, Includtnf .Speaker .Sam Rayburn and Chief Juitice Fred Vlnson; 4. the em- bamisslnt,' setback clven him by Senator Kcfau- ycr in New Hampshire; and finally, the prospect that he would havd to run against his old friend, General Eisenhower. For » Ions tlm« the president hu indicated to members of his family and to his closer friends that he did not want to run. More recently he Intimated to one dose intimate th«t th« barmcc of criticism was netting on his nerves and h e wanted t o ict out. · · . . · · Probably only three or four of his friends really knew how he fell, one of them being the chief justice, whom the president had urged to be the Democratic nominee himself. At one' lime, approximately nine to 12 months ago, It was Mr. Truman's plan to «p- pplnt tho chief justice to a key post In tlie ad- mlnlfilnitlori such Us secretary of slate or de- fetisc moblllzer in order to give him a spring-. board' to the presidency. This was to get around the fact that the chief justice has. held a .Vigor-. out view that the court should' not be a spring'.board into politics and that no man. should step from the court Into an active candidacy for any .off lie, even the presidency. . . this plan was sidetracked In part by Senator McCarthy of Wisconsin, thoueh McCarthy to this day probably doesn't realize it. However, the constant barrage of criticism fired at Dran Acheso'n made It , imperative in the mind of Mr. tfuman, whos* loyally to his friends. i» 1*. . glon, that Achoson be continued at the helm of the Stale Department. Later, as time jiasscd, the chief justice felt It Was too Into for dim to step Into another offlrf as a springboard to the presidency. Not enough months remained iHjfore the campaign, . ' , * . * * ' It was at this point -- approximately around .December and January-- that President Truman ·erlously reconsidered changing his mind itbout running. This period coincided with 8«n«tnr Tnft's reputed' Rains of delegates and when the Eisenhower backer* were discouraged, At that - tlme,; 4 it looked as If Taft would be the Hopubll- , can nominee, and nothing ha* titillated Tnlmaii's political nostrils more than thr. Idea of defent- Jng his old .critic Und encm.Vi Bob Taft. This Itching on the president's part to take ·* Senator Taft Was what caused Home Of his . , most revered political friends, Including Speak' ef.Rayburn and the chief Justice, to urge him : not to run. The chief justice and Sneaker nay- burn discussed th« matter privately and later ' t h e thief jusllce Was selected as the min'to · present their Joint view to the president, This view, was that Harry Truman would go i^dOWn i In history ·« great president, If for noth- '.:JnH else, because of his courageous foreign policy, Historians, the chief justice to understood to have told the president, would overlook the petty political bickering and the corruption Issue arid would focus attention upon; Truman's courage In saving Greece and Turkey from Corrimlihl.irh, In putting across the Marshall plan and in conceiving the North 'Atlantic pact for'lhi! defense \»-,i °^S* st n n Euroo*. it would »i« 0! : give him ]f-cr«im for his cpurtgfiiM *!aTid on"clvll rlnntltf ". 'But '.If he ,r«n "again, Truman's friends believed, the Democratic party would be torn asunder, first over .th* clvil-rlghti lsu«, «lso ln : part over foreign policy. . The campaign Would give the Republicans a ^ernne»;to-nrt(lel»itlwf foreign wllcv a, was not · ... doile In the 194R eamoalgn when Senator Van. dcnbrr^ was allv«. Thus, it was r'olnted out, Truman's great mlrestdnes against Communism mlgbt be nlowed tmdnr. This advice by Democrats of great standing in the party Is reported to have offset the Importuning of the palace guard that the nresidimt jhould run again. A few weelts thereafter came Elsenhower's show; of strength In New Hamn- uhlrt and the victory of Senator Kcfauver which clinched Mr. Truman's decision. - Of nil these deterrent factors, nerhaps the most Important was the probabllltv that Mr Truman would have to run against Eisenhower! Friends of - t h e president who sat with him on the "back porch" of the While House In .limp 1048, recalled how worried he was over the prospect that Elsenhower would consent to have his mime entered In the Democratic convention In Chicago, Truman made no secret of his belief that Ike could take the Democratic convention by storm and he stewed mentally over dome mean's ot taking Eisenhower out' of the race. It was on this particular evening that George Allen was sent to New York to get rlctter from the general guaranteeing that he would not run Simultaneously another close friend of the president telephoned Milton Elsenhower the general's brother, also to- get an alsuTBTicc that Ike was not a candidate. Almost four years later, In the late aummcr o f . 1951, Truman »K«in took confidential steps ,to.. make sure he would not. face Eisenhower as .a candidate. He remembered .'first · commit. tmmt he had mad* to Ike through their mutual friend, George Allen, In 194B-that if Ike wanted to run in '52, he, Truman would help him. He also doubtless remembered how formidable Ike would be as n candidate.. ' Therefore, the president Invited George Allen Theyll Do ft EveryTimc By Tunmy Hatlo COMES IT?

TYumaV told Alien that he considered the North Atlantic pact one of the most important cornerstones for world peace and that Elsen- hower'* leadership win essential to it. He added wa« worried over Republican statements that Eisenhower was ' Available for the GOP nomination, and he felt that both the United SUtes and our allies should know whether Ike was rlinnU; the North Atlantic pact or runnlnj for president. Truman ftirther suggested that the two were not compatible, and that if Elsenhower really wanted to be president, he would be much more at home In the Democratic party than, with the Republicans. Furthermore, the president indicated that, as a Democrat, Ike would not have -to'-tan opcAly, but could be "summoned" to the presidency. Truman even hinted that he might like to mike the nominating speech himself. Finally, the president suggested that George Allen fly to Paris and have a heart-to-heart talk with Eisenhower. Allen countered by suggesting that Mr. Truman write a friendly note to Ike summarizing his views which he, Allen, would deliver in Paris. This was done. Allen delivered the note and reported tn the White Home liter: First, that Elsenhower would not quit the North Atlantic pact In the near future; second, that the NATO job would be completed by this spring; third, that if he did run, he would talk to -Truman first. And in conclusion, Ike sent word that in any event, he was a Republican.

Twenty Yetni At* Today (Fayetteville Dally Democrat, April I, 193J) Three unmasked men robbed the Farmers and Merchants Bank in Prairie Grove yesterday at noon and then headed south toward Fort Smith over a cut-off road. The loss of $4,000 was covered by insurance. Several deputies from Fayetteville were called to assist in the chase. An important event in the history of the University will occur here soon when Phi Beta Kappa, oldest and best known honorary scholarship fraternity in the world will install Arkansas Alpha charter, bringing new preatige to the university. Installation will occur, in the Engineering auditorium Monday and a banquet at the Washington Hotel will follow the exercises. Ten Vein A** Tarfiy (Northwest Arkansas Times.

The ittlc, of course. Where els does the householder, rich or pooi mighty or humble, ·· stow iwa things which he may, or ma never, use again? So, feeling like a thief In broad daylight, I sneiked up to the third floor of the house. I found that the attic was divided, roughly, iri two sections. The first I CIIM to, wis apparently devoted to sleeping quarters for servants. Several doors were ajar and well-mado bods and tidy rooms trstiftcd to the watchfulness ot Mrs. Ring, It was clcsr that the housekeeper oversaw this part of the establishment with the same canlc eye that kept the more Imposing arrangements below peccable. My luck wis in that morning. All the help wis, presumably, Mow. Nonetheless I walked cautiously .-ilonf th* hill until It ended abruptly it * do«r. Th* door wimt locked.

'· · · ·TRYING to work methodically, . had started operations near th door ind .moved slowly down on wall of the. big article-choked room. This brought me at lag laboriously, to the far end 'of th ·ttic. 'Here, under a small window facing almost due east, there wa » carved oak chest I flopped down on it. thinking lettingly that the thing was larg snotigh and old enough to contain he fabled treasure of Captain Kid That thought made me get up ant ift the lid. The chest contained treasure lertainly, but not what I was ooking for. It was packed with Id pewter, thoufh 1 had to tear he tissue paper iround several of he pieces to aicertaln that Every I me I eng«f*d In this minor van- alism, I found more pewter. Pr« tumably there wis nothing else n the chest I cloMd tb« 114 aad ·at down on It ifiln. The flniera of my right hand were res««ss, beciuse they cauldnt old the icciutomed cigarette. I ippa'se.

The little Ipproximately-foot-wide region behind the chest had been neither swept nor d u s t e d . The chest itself, when in accustomed position, concealed this delinquency. [ COULD practically feel; my eyes pop, at a little vacant round space, clean and unsullied, on the dusty floor in back of the chest. The fact that I had expected to find almost precisely this did not oem to lessen the shock of the ac- ual discovery. I left the attic jn i kind of daze, retaining only nough sense to get myself down ut of the attic unobserved. Above all things, just then, I leeded fresh air. So I kept on gong downstairs and out of the ouse entirely. The rain had now ettriorited into a mist and sprays f it, soft needles prickling my ice, brought me partially back to ornil. ·ut th* feeling of stupefaction u Instantly replictd by one of reid at whit I hid to do next nlHs I was mile* off th* track, 7 list of suspects was now nar- owed to two.

It is really astounding how Imost unfailingly one may race the evil to its root--this oot, which is some angle, and u's money question some lase of cupidity. I insist ALMOST, for I don't quite know, and there persists in my mind the memory of some fine persons to whom I can not allocate cupidity. A Quip Or Two From A Friend Or Two Fred Starr-"I'm highly in favor of organizing- a water-witching union, going in for eight hours a day and time and a half for overtime. I'd like, to be president-of such a body. Of course I can't witch water, but that don't make no difference. John L.

Deir Miss Dix: My husband and I are people of «mill means, owning small house and consider ably beset with doctor's bills. We arc godparents to five children and would like, to know to what extent we are obligated for presents to these youngsters. There are three generations in our family and we have made it a practice lo give gifts, or money, on all birthdays, weddings, communions, confirmations and graduations, as well as at Christmas and Easter. With the family growing in numbers so rapidly, it is becoming quite a burden to 'maintain this justom, much as we .would like to.

' Marie Answer: It "certainly should not e expected that you give presents icyond your means, or to an ex- ent that means financial sacrifice or you. Your impulses a r e naturally generous, but s« families pread from one generation to the other, the burden can be terrific. Of ·'court'* everyone, especially children, likes-to be remembered on the important occasions of life, but .an appropriate, greeting card can.carry your thoughtfulncss as well as. i gift, our greeting card companies do ,«uch a .wonderful job of printing handsome, cheery cards that you need feel no apology in sending them. If your means' permit, continue to remember, youf »od children with gifts, at least until they reach teen-ige, but the presents need not be costly or elaborate. Youngster! are pleased with very simple things, and to give a small gift that has been chosen with'the child's tistes in mind IE a better remembrance than a gift of money you cinriot afford. Parents Will Understand Don't be embarrassed to let the parents of these children, as well as the other members of your family, know that your financial condition Will not permit numerous or expensive gifts. Everyone realizes -what the cost ot llvlnf is today, and especially what the cost of illness Is. If your family is as understanding as you are,' they will be very happy to see you curtail the gift list.
