I*M THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·r DREW KAMOH rhicato--Politics can be cruel business. The crudest blows dealt In the current race for Ihe Democratic presidential nomination were to Vice President Alben Barkley and Averell tiarriman. Undoubtedly, they were not. meant to be cruel, for in Rarkley's case they came from those who love him moil -- his wife, Leslie Biffle, and the president. The stagr was let tor Barkley to enter the presidential race on July .1, the last day Congress was supposed to meet, at a luncheon given by Senate Secretary Biffle, the Veep's close personal and political friend, Since Congress was supposed to close that day, President Truman returned to his old stamping ground, attended the lunch, had a couple of bourbons and was pulled to one side for a conference wit.h Biffle. R i f f l e Is the man wno put Barkley across as vice president at the Philadelphia convention In 1948; also the man who, posing as a chicken salesman, toured the country taking political soundings that summer and predicted Truman could win. Me has long wanted the Veep to become president; so has Barkley. So, al this luncheon. Biffle urged Truman lo switch his support from Karrimsn. then his No. 1 choice, to the much-loved, elderly Veep. Truman agreed. The very next day Barkley, buoyed up by hope and spurred on hy his wife, made a formal finnouncenr.ent that he would actively push his campaign. That was why, on arriving in Chicago, he walked from the railroad station to the hotel. That was also why the party bosses passed out word t h a t it's "Barkley the White House wants." However, Ihe days when the president ran hand down orders on his successor and get them obeyed arc past. When George Harrison, head of the AFI- Railroad Clerks, heard this from Bill Boyle, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, he phoned the While House, Insisted on talking to the president direct, and Ihe following conversation took place: "Mr. President, Bill Boyle tells me you have ·elected Barkley." "That's right," replied the president. "Well, that puts me on an awfully long limb because I have been pushing Harriman as you indicated 10 days ago," responded Harrison. "Well, stay out on the limb for a little while longer," was Truman's cryptic reply. Whether the president meant hy this that he was merely using Barkley as a stalking horse to stop Kefauver is now known. However, the Veep will never recover from that political blow * * * The blow at Averell Harriman was not quile so brutal, chiefly because he is a younger man. What happened was that Paul Fltzpatrick. top Democratic leader of New York, wanted a "holding candidate" -- a man who could hold New York's big block of delegates together, thus permitting Fltzpatrick to trade at the convention and throw the New York delegates at the right time. First Fllcpctrlck approached New York's Sen. Herbert I«hman. Lehman, past 70, ridiculed the Idea. He said he had no chance to become president and didn't want the New York delegates pledged to him. Next Fitipatrlck went to Harriman, urged him to run for president. Harriman took him seriously, jumped in with all his energy, plus considerable money, and proceeded to put on a bang-up campaign. In fact, he put on such a good campaign that even his best friends were surprised. Fitzpalrick stuck with him, but doesn't look happy about it. He wore a little Harriman h u t ton, sat back, went through the mollons of steering the Harriman campaign, hut there was no passion in his drive, no optimism in '·'- wv--. He merely paid lip service to a commitment he made. For novice Harriman, however, this has been an experience. He has found himself able to make better speeches than the old-timers, he has snapped out of his habitual shyness, and he will be a politician to be reckoned with in future administrations. * * * Sad sights al the Democratic convention Include: former White House General Counsel Clark Clifford, now playing woulri-he kingmaker for Sen. Bob Kerr of Oklahoma. Clifford, whnse law practice benefited considerably from his White House contacts, now realizes he has pulled a hull, can't get off the hook. . . Three other former While House advisers are also riding the losers' train. They are gracious Grace Tully. former secretary to Franklin D. Roosevelt and FDR's two top ghost writers, Judge Sam Rosenman and Robert E. Sherwood. The trio worked hard In Averell Harriman's corner... The Roosevelt family is well represented at the convention. In addition to Mrs. Roosevelt, there is Franklin, Jr., who spearheaded the Harriman forces, while Jimmy Roosevelt beat the brush for Kefauver. Mrs. RoosevcM's private favorite is Governor Stevenson, with whom she served at the United Nations. However, the former First Ladv, an invited speaker at the convention, carefully avoided showing any partisanship. Two of her aons, F.lllott and John, are backing General Eisenhower. . . Secretary of Interior Chapman only cabinet member present wilh a direct phone to the White House, had to lace Democratic Chairman Frank McKinney down for using Chapman's name as part ot the Barkley boom. Chapman couldn't deny It publicly, but sent his aides scurrying through the lobbies to squelch the rumor.

That is because there is a manifest majority which is not United States tenator or representative as to how be chall vote in Ihe Conjress. There is no wiy that a national convention can issue enraged In the fighting. There is | effective orders to the party in , no evidence at all of a real split between the North and the South. The fight has been waged by poll, ticians, not of the first rank in power and influence and operating .from local, not even from sectional, constituencies. The big majority, which wishes to nominate Stevenson, has not been greatly interested in the issues that are being fought, over. For it is plain enough that the issues are unreal and at bottom irrelevant to the real problems which these issues are supposed -0 be dealing with. What are the real problems? There is the real problem of racial discrimination in employment. | But there is no longer any serious i dispute, as there was in 1948, ' about whether the federal government has a right to take an In; terest in the solution of the prnb- ' lem. The-question has become one state. The national convention does not own the state parties. They are not Kj crea'uret. In fact the national convention is itself a federal congress of theie state parties. The parties in the ttates can be Induced, seduced, persuadt ed and pushed. But they cannot be compelled -- not when it it made unmistakably plain that they are being- compelled. What this comes down to in the end is that in a heterogeneous coalition there is no substitute for national leadership by the president. Senator Moody and the Americans for Democratic Action will not be able by motions, maneuvers, roll calls, pledge: ani planks to make up for the fact that President Truman has not known how to hold together the national coalition which president Roosevelt formed. Truman has of the degree of federal interven-j not known how to transcend the tion which would be feasible and pressure of the factions. He has wise. A question of degree is not I known only how to antagonize s question on which a convention can make a final decision. No one knows this better than does Senator Humphrey himself when he is orating, not. at a political convention, but as a United States senator. The second cratic convention decided to by-pass Presidential Secretary Matt Connelly In Betting word to Truman when they found that Connelly was piseonholding their views. They will talk through Presidential Counsel Charles Murphy, whom they consider less biased and more "accurate." How Time Hies Thirty Team Ago Today N (Fayetteviile Daily Democrat July 25, 1922) R. C.

The newly created city sanitation department began full operation this morning, it was announced by Mayor George Vaughan, Jr. Two trucks have been purchased by the depart.-nt.nt, and the personnel opened its cleanup campaign in the business districts. Residential sections probably will be visited for the first time-next week. Resdents have been requested to put any cans or trash which they might wish removed from their premises in some type of container and leave it in some place which may be easily seen from the street. real problem is much broader than civil rights Igislation. It arises from the hard fact that Mr. Truman, a Democratic president with a nominal Democratic majority in both houses, has lost control of legislation to a combination of Taft Republicans and Southern Democrats. In the 82nd Congress, according to a count made by the "Congressional Quarterly," this combination defeated the administration forces on seven out of eight key votes in the House, and on six out of 10 in the Senate. It is no! surprising that the administration woulrt like to do something about the Southern them or to yield to them,. And as a result he has become the rallying point pro and con of factionalism in the Democratic party, nol the custodian of its national leadership. The only way out of the difficulty Is the one that is cbvioui to the great majority of the convention. It is to nominate Stevenson, giving to him the national leadership and control of the party, and thus to bypass the quarrels which result much less from great public issue than from a general break-down of leadership in' the administration. There is no doubt. I think, that from the beginning Stevenson has seen the reality of the situation with extraordinary objectivity and penetration. He has not been toy. He has been wise in realizing what after 20 years in office it. would mean to tike over the leadership of the Iie.mocratic par- Democrats. But nothing that Sen- hy. It could be doCj only under alor Moody and his men have conditions which, if not unique in proposed or talked about ·-- the I politics, are very rare indeed.

There was no value in .the think more like Taft than like kind of nomination for which Truman. Reading the Southern i Vice President'Barkley was, so Questions And Answers Q--Do American airways have route numbers? A--Airways over America now have route numbers like highways. Airways running north and south have odd numbers; those running east and west have even numbers. Q--What is the modern theory concerning the Antarctic Ocean? A--The National Geographic Society says modern exploration indicates there is no Antarctic Ocean. Up-to-date maps show a land mass there instead. Q--Do the Japanese reckon birthdays from Jan. 1 like the Chinese? A--Formerly the Japanese counted all birthdays from Jan. I and regarded a child as being one year old at birth. This custom has been replaced by the Western method. Q--Whose life was the basis of the drama "L'Aiglon" by Rostand? A--Napoleon II. the son of Napoleon and Marie lxuise of Austria. Democrats out of the party not provide the Truman forces with a loyal congressional majority. Far from it. It would- only reduce them to a minority party, and it would mean that their opponents could organize Congress. There is no way that a convention, this or any other, can compel a large faction of a party to obey the commands of a still larger faction. That sort of thing cannot be done under the American political system, which in this vital respect is fundamentally different from any that prevails in cynically and so briefly, considered. The new leadership had to be drafted. It could not be appointed from the White House. A draft, as everyone knows, is aimer' never genuine. In the case of Stevenson, if he is nominated, there will have been a genuine draft. He .will have been drafted because he party needs the man more than he desired the office. To have known this is the mark of wisdom. To have adhered to it is the mark of great public virtue.
