Gilford Phillips and Ludiow Flower, who «re old Denver friends of Secretary of Agriculture Brannan, dropped in on him the nther day and began to talk about politics. They were for Kefauver. found him bitttr against Kefauver. "When Ktfiuvtr remained in the New Himpshire primary against the presldtnt, it wis in Iniult," remirlced the aecretary of igrlculture with heat. What Brannan and various top polillccs of both parties don't seem lo realize Is that a large part of tht American public doesn't care whether the present leaders are "insulted" or not. They are rebellious toward those in power, no matter whit tht ptrty, and definitely in a nose-thumb- ini mood. '. ,.'.' ' ;;:.; ; This applies not only to those in Washing- Ion, but to parly bosses In slates and cities. It applied lo Democratic leaders who were ousted in the New Hampshire primary and lo Republican boests who were ousted last November after their 70-year rule over Philadelphia. This resentmanl against party bosses accounts for much of the popular aentiment for Elsenhower and Kefauver. It's a new political ferment, a healthy desire on the part of a lot of people not hitherto in politics, to get into politics. N«t only ar» they determined to |«t out and vot«, but they're determined t h a t there shall H» no smeke-filled-room nominations at cither conventlftn. * * * The bosses may not like this, but it 's a f a r t .

Some time ago a gilt-edge list of top Democrat! were selected as delegates for Truman. Kefauvpr, who came in late, could get no celebrities to support him. As a result, he fell back on youngdters and relative nonentities with plenty of enthusiasm but little political experience. Later, when the president took hlmaelf out of tht race, he pulled the run out from under both his own delegates and the Dcmocntlr party bosses. .Ltft high and dry, they persuaded able Altorney Gentral Pal Brown to become the ·sac- rificial stalking horse.

In Ohio, the party bosses had exerted pressure to ktep Kefauver delegates off the ticket This only added fuel to the resentment of the voters, and now some of Ohio's old-linr leaders find themselves out in the cold with a hunch nf brash Kefauver youngsters part way in the saddle. ·* * * Florida jurpriie-Old-line leaders tmik · men) licking in the Florida primary, where tftt governor, the two senators and every m-m- tnV B,^rf l; v, 5 .
