THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·f DREW MAMOtl Chicago--Regardless of this Republican convention ever electing a preildent it will aet a rerord for several things. Kirn, II will last longer than any other recent convention. Second, It will net a record for snafus. Third, it will be more like a democratic convention t h a n any other. Democratic conventions have become famous for their rebel yells, bolslerous behavior, hot tempers, prolonged demonstrations. Things never «o quit* right at a Democratic convention even when the machinery Is all geared to nominate a Roosevelt or a Truman. Either the South walks out, a Chicago newer commissioner takes over from the basement, or a Bob Hannegan switches names on a letter from Roosevelt. When the Democrats put on a ke.vnnte speaker like Alben Barklcy they whoop It up for 4,1 minutes. When the Hepuhilcans put on General MacArthur they give him a milk-toast demonstration--three minutes. Of course, Alben gave the hny» some phrases they could whoop and holler about while MacArlhur was pretty dull When a breast beater like Barkley shouts '"When Franklin Roosevelt started to brush away Ihe cobwebs of the Hoover administration he found that even the spiders were starving" it's a l i t t l e easier to throw your hat in the air than after SO minutes of d u l l platitudes have been droned in your ear. .Aside from -the keynote speech and the lack of rebel yells, however, the Republicans came much nearer the hot and humid heterogennus- ncss of ihe Democratic spirit. In brief, the Republicans have really battled. * * * And since the Republican party has been pretty much devoid of forceful leadership of late these hlrthpangs of battle probably were necessary. Certainly it was healthy to have the battle over seating Southern delegates fought out in th* open under Ihe full glare of Ihe TV cameras The entire Republican party got a real understanding for the first time of how the GOP has been a captive party In the South. And if it wants lo build for the f u i u r t II has to got rid nf absentee political landlordism below the Mason- Dixon line. The batile over the platform, also healthv, was so heated that it miRht have been pulled b'v the Demoerata themselves. In fact, one phase of It will win the Democrats a lot of voles For. whereas the Democratic platform has gone right down the line for a compulsory Fair Employment Practices Commission with enforcement powers, the Republicans argued for a couple of days over whether lo support a purc- y advisory FEPC or whether to leave the problem of race discrimination up to the sir.tcs. Most Southern Democrats would he deilthted to accept Ihe latter. They've always wanted discrimination left lo the slates. And many Southern Democrats, Including Senator Russell · O f Georgia, do not frown on an advisory FEPC shorn nf enforcement power to step in and tell a Southern slate what to do. The GOP battle over FEPC was waged under the picture of Abraham Lincoln, founder nf he party. Oratorical outburst! constantly paid rlbute to the founder of the party. However that debate could cost the election next Novem- * * * For the hlK-clty Negro vote has been restless h .'·· A f t t r n « v l n K supported the Democrats · bout ft) per ctnt for the last !0 ytarj, Negro leaders were wondering whether they couldn't do belter elsewhere.

'. . ' Pint GiMte of the Double-Header! Today and Tomorrow mr WALTM n In closing for the Taft side in the Georgia delegat* debate on Wednesday evening Senator Dirksen made his main argument t h a t the issue was whether Ihe Republican National Convention would publicly repudiate the men who control the national organization of the party. The two great com- miltcei, the official authoritative -. |h . p ar)yi had said Dirhsen. heard the i ~, dispute anrl they had rendered judgment. If now the cnn to reverse, these a question of Jaw vention voted committees on and of morality, then the convcn ion would be declaring that it lad no confidence in the judgment and the justice of the cen- ral party organization. A f t e r list, how could the party ask for le confidence of the country? Senator Dirksen, who is a sea- ·oned politician as well as an st- ractive and gifted speaker, was imost certainly sware that his ause was lost whsn he made that rgument. He looked and he nizing the Eisenhower movement today as the tuccestor and htir of Wlllkie «nd Dewey. They are very bitter about this, about what they hold has been the capture of th" party by men who are not orthodox Republicans, and they make much of the /act that these interlopers, so lo speak, have all gons down to defeat. Senator Taft believes Intensely that the reason for their d*feat was t h a t Willkie and Dewey did not offer the voters a trut alternative to Roosevelt and Truman, snd , that the voters were bound to prefer Ihe genuine Democratic goods to the Republican imitation. This is a plausible theory ind'f can imagine circumstances in which it might be the true theory But I do not believe the theory is true for the past three elections or likely to be true for t.h* comtoi one. It is most probably not true lhat is to say, that a popular ma-' iority would have formed around the Republicans had they taken a · in foreign policy which Arthur during hi* quick trip, not even H. L. Hunt, the Texas oilman who put up the dn'udh for Doug's headquarters. About all he had a chance In say was; "Why didn't you brine Mrs M.rArlhur with you?" Reply: "She prefers to watch mo on TV." Eisenhower forces d i d n ' t decide u n t i l 4-30 a. m., t h a t they wanted Gov. Theodore Roosevelt McKp.ldin of Maryland to make Ike's nominating speech, at which time they got hold of Ike, woke him up, had him put on his clothes and confer with McKeldin. Remarked an Eisenhower side: "The Army was never like this" McKeldin later complained that Ike's ghost wrt- ers failed to help write his speech. Actually they were writing it for him on the q.t., didn't want to get into a hassle over how to praise Eisenhower ... John Wayne, cowboy hero and Hollywoods No. 1 box-office attraction, was prel'ty sore most of the week against fellow CaliforniaTM Warren and Knowiand for not coming out for Taft. Wayne takes his politics seriously. BUIMCJIL. ne loosen ann ne jnsiLiun jn loreign policy wnic un*ed.

So in effect he declared that the stakes in Georgia and Texa* were only secondarily th .the contested delegates. What wa really at stake was the cnntro of the Old Guard of the nationa machinery of the party. · · « ' By their handling of the con tests and their use of television the Eitehhower managers sue ceeded in demonstrating hov much the centra] control of th parts; organization depends on politicians from stales and territories where the Republicans are not in fact a political party at all There has h ( = r . a devastating exposure nf m old skeleton in the ·upboard, namely that the party inreaucracy and management do not rest on a popular basis. The real party strength of Taft in the Midwest would not have been nearly enough to control the party machinery, and to win all the preliminary contests for delegates. To do that, the Taft faction leeded the Southern states, the wrder states and th; territories. They had to use the politicians who have no party behind them In order to defeat the politicians who have not only a party behind them, but a party that has won elections. This control was challenged in the convention, and, it would now *eem, it has been broken by a coalition of the Republican parties from a large number of states. The hard core of this coalition's strength has been in the industrial Northeast and on the Pacific coast. , · · · - · f i i w i M I C R l ' V I and ride wilh him to the airport, hut p|, ns n ,i,- InTllI, TT r ,' W(nt in!ll ' ;Kt - Ta " w »n'"l « i. » 1( '» nli "« "p with M a c A r l h u r hut ancr the Mai-Arthur speech fell so r i a l ' hk friends were glad he hadn't made.

At 20, life for him had mean going to college, going to parties ·nd going a bit too fast, occasion ally, In his convertible. He wosn' prepared for tragedy. Lite afternoon of the third daj tit had Just returned from the Funeral. Ho sal in his room, alone thinking back over as many of the 20 years as he could remember moment the effort to be manly was too much, and he broke down and cried. It didn't last long; tears wouldn't iclp ease the aching loneliness In lim. His dad had been his entire family. His mother had died when he was a bnby. He had no brothers or sisters, no one close enough to turn to. He went to the window and stared out over the neighboring homes. It was spring and faintly chill outside. Out on the farm, Nystrom would be exercising the colls, Jarvii would be at the spring plowing. On Ihe farm he and his dnd had been the closest. There dad had «p«nt moat- of his time, among the horses to which he'd · devoted his life. The Hamilton stable wns one of the flntst in ! America. Johnny went downstairs and told the servants he wouldn't be home for dinner. A few minutes later he was out of the citj, Ihe |convertible moving swiftly along Ihe gravel rond. A bit loo swiftly as usual. He hit Ihe curve a short dislance from Ihe farm entrance at a spanking 62 miles an hour. And jusl arounc Ihe lurn, a coupe was parked dl- Ireclly in the rood. Anolher car was coming from the other direction. Jolmn.v slammed the brakes the snme time he twirled the whcc loward the dilch. Dlrectlj ea*l « law feme were Ike aUMw.... TUi ra inheriUBee. ' I T was a rmiflh, If inspired bit of ' handling, but ihe convertible 'took il like n thoroughbred. The -car came to hall inches from Ihe .stone fence that bordered the ·farm along this edge. Johnny glanced at his hands, which were shaking. Then he looked up into 11 pair nf Ihe bluest, angriest eyes he'd ever seen. They belonged lo a girl. A girl of Johnny's anpurint agt, a girl with Jet black hair crowning a ( moh!le, Intelligent fare. "Did you hy nny chan^» aiisume this ronrt was a rac* track?" she .wanted lo know. , Johnny looked from her eyes lo Ihe jack In her hiu,.l, nml Ilion to ! the Irfl rear tlrt nf her car, which 'was flut.

"You come racing ilong a winding road 70 miles an hour and yt u have the nerve to--" ·'Not 70," Johnny interrupted. Only «2 miles per hour. Not too ast for a car thif «lze." She itarted to say something, ut changed her mind. She turned ack toward the coupe. Johnny washed her. "You hive he jock upside down. Turn It round." He stepped from tht cir. Let me help you." "Never mind." She kept her ack toward him. She was trying o force the Jack underneath the ar. Johnny said gently, "It doesn't o under the axle. It's a bumper ick." "A bumper Jack?" She stared '. him wonderlngly. "If you'll pull your car off tht road, where it won't be a dangei lo traffic, I'll show you how i works." She did as he suggested. Johnny worked silenlly until he openet the luggage compartment to ge the spare. The spare tire was soft. "You're Carol O'Shea. You sing,' have your own radio show, or' will have. Your uncle U very proud of you." "la he rtaily proud? He always talk« to me about it u though I'm waiting mj talenta." Her voice chinged. "Of courae, I could have made i career in atrioua music.

Johnny nterrupteii. "That's right." "Is your uncle's name Jarvis?" "Nystrom," the said. "Mr. Jarvis nst works the land; my uncle 'aiscs horses, racing horses."

"You must think I'm prtlly wftil," she said, finally, "Trying o fool you about the farm--" "Not Ion awful," Johnny Mld.i blue eyes. Impulsively, her hand touched his on the wheel. She remained tilent, but her slight touch was the most comforting gesture he had known these past few days Below the sprawling house here, Ihe fields stretched down to th* brook on one side; this was the horse pasture. Directly east ot the house, but some dislance back, were the stables. Behind them, the half mile track. This was Johnny's inherilancn. TVYSTROM was coming up from the slubles a they stood Ultrt, He was n tall, thin nnd bony man wilh n shock of nenr-white hair, wilh eyes that seemed to have faded to pastel blue.

Nystrom gripped lohnny's hand, tried to say aomc- hing, and then shut his lips Irmly.

I have been engaged five months and Neil won't be home until November. In the meantime, there are many local activities in which I would like to partake, but naturally I don't feel free to attend. I have always been popular in school, and have been missing the parties, dances ,ind outings that go with Senior year. I'm always alone while the sang is having fun. Of course Noil would want me to stay home--if I went out «t all he wouldn't like it. Would you advise me to break the engagement now, or wait until Neil comes home lo see what Ihe outcome will be? We have no immediate plans for marriage--in fact, the engagement was rather hasty as I didn't even know I was getting the ring. A. P. G. Answer: Your problem is being f h a r e d b y countless girls all over ' policies of the administration-or had they in domestic affairs demanded the repeal and dismantling of Ihe New Deal. The strongest reason for thinking that the Taft theory is not tru« lies in the. fact that three times in sucrr-SRion, and now probablv for the fourth lime, Taft hai not been able lo carry his own party using Ihe kind of campaign Issue with which he thinks ht could carry the country. After all, the Republican party members are a very big sample of the American people. If they do not in the end. decide to follow Senator Taft, why should he suppose that he could do better with the independents and the discontented Democrats? They are not likely to be more nrthodoxically Republican than the registered Republican voters and the elected delegates of the Republican party. * * · The successive defeats of Sp.n- dlor Tafl within the Hepublican arty and Ihp continuity of the ·laments who have supported Willkie, Dewey and Eisenhower is slrong evidence of a movement within the party. The defeats of Willkie and Dewey might be due, one may suggest, not to their hav- ng deviated from the strictest icpublican orthodoxy, but lo their "laving been unable to maks that rtovement effective and convinc- ng because Ihey were the cap- ives of Ihe Old Guard. This would be the most plauj- _le interpretation of the Repub- can party's record if we have a right to assume that the party Is not dying but is alive, and that for the past 12 years a new Republican . movement ties been struggling to be born, that it led by a rising generation of younner Republicans, preparing themselves for the day when the long pwiod of the ascendency of the New Deal movement comes to its end.

Not Really In Love Some girls who are engaged to hoys overseas are mature enough In know, even at. 18, that they are truly in love and that their peeu- 1 ar situation will necessarily entail much loneliness and sacrifice. Others, like yourself, are already resenting Ihe state of being tied down--and this Is by no means a reflection on the girls. Eighteen is the age for fun--Ihe last of life's carefree periods. 11 should be enjoyed and, if you are convinced t h a t an engagement hampers your social life to the point where you are becoming bitter and resentful, the only fair thing is In give back the ring. Of course the whole basis of your unrest lies in the fact lhat you are not, and undoubtedly never have been, in love with Neil.
