Halleck, VP Hopeful, Wow
Convention's Longest Face .
BV PITU IMOM iU~
^ASHINGTON—(NEA)—How CongresaHttB" Charfie Halleck of In-
diana didn't get the vice-presidential nomination lie thought he
was doing to get at the Philadelphia GOT-convention ia now nxplained
by Indiana ex-Sen. Jim Wataon, who wa£ Sfc-batween. Dewey coiled
up Watson at Philadelphia and asked if 'K&ythlsx could be doot to
bring the Indiana delegation into the Dewey camp? Watson explained
that the big question among the Hooaiers was Halleck. who had vice-
presidential ambitions. Dewey was ngRffTTf he would take Halleck
as running mate and ia supposed to have answered that if the con
: vention nominated Halleck, Dewey wouW take him. Thta was relayed
Z to the Indiana delegation. Halleck imniwUatnlyrjumped to the. con*
* elusion that he had the nod. He swung -the -whole Indiana delegation
*®to the Dewey camp, overcoming opposition from ex-Senator Willis
and others who were for Talt. And the word lot out that Halleck
1 was to be vice president with Dewey. When this got back to Dewey,
- he Was pretty bothered. He called up. .Wataon and asked Mm it be
5 had misrepresented the situation to Haljeck. Watson said that ho
z hadn't; and put all .he blame on Halleck for letting his ambitions get
2 the better of him. On the last day of the convention, when Dewey
- andjiis advisers were trying to decide on who the vice-presidential
* candidate should be, Halleck was hanging around in the halls of
r Dewey's headquarters, woaikig the longest face in the convention.

Z *rable to teniae the Gorman ration level from 1560 to 1100 calories
r a day. Food outlook ia improved, and if this raise in diet can bo put
£ over it will relieve U. 8. government of one of the worst problem* left
r it by Congress. This comes from Congressional requirement that diet
z in Displaced Person camps must be lowered from present 2000 calories
: a day to level of the German people, before ail of funds can be made
r available to International Refugee Organization which runs DP camps.
* Congress took this action deliberately to force DP's out of camps,
r claiming shirkers preferred the good free diet in the camps to harder
H work for less food outside the camps. IRQ ofldals claim proper cor-
: rective action was to raise the German diet, pet cut the DP ration. Cut
from 2000 to XM0 calories a day may not be so bad, but cut to 1500
may be difficult Army and ISO haw until early next year to Work
out the problem.
TJERE'S size-up by one American oflctaLwho has been working on
11 U. S. relief projects In Europe for past year: "I'm sure the United
States would get along batter in Us international dealings if Ameri-
cans realized we cant Judge other RitwUR-American standards.
My Argument is that moat Americans spftjM JRWornight transforma-
tion to American social and moral atandaras "Com people who are
still highly illiterate and terribly backward. J agree that American
influence must push for moral progress. But I think Ifs going to be
a long, hard pull, and we shouldn't heckle people while they're making
a good try." —
