Leaders .of both the AFL and CIO have turned thumbs down on three of the candidate!, Vice President Alben W. Hartley, Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia and Sen. Robert S. Kerr of Oklahoma. The AFL and CIO men handling the political maneuvers for their iabor croups ha\e endorsed nont .of the other candidates. But they made it clear that either Averell Harriman, Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee or Gov. Ad- !ai Stevenson of Illinois will do. They are all out, too, for President Truman if the name of the chief executive--who iiss .vaid h won't run again -- should come before the convention.

Bay Bcrkter Tw OM j George 'Harrison, AFL vice! prwident; and Jack Kroll, Cioi Political Action Committee director, reported the decision not to support Barkley because of his age. He is 74. Harrison said, aside from Barkley's age, the union chiefs were afraid he might merge forces with Russell or Kerr, or both. Harrison said this would be a hid for "Reactionaries" to seize party control.
