could be a strong national candi-
date. Many western political lead-
ers are known for their lark of
violent party partisanship, and
Warren admittedly is a fine exam-
ple of this. Hh criticisms of Dem-
ocratic deeds a-id programs have
been on the mild side.
As a matter of fact, Warren
shares with Kis< nhov.er the dis
ti net ion of heing publicly lauded
by the Opposition. President Tru-
man has praised h<>th men and has
twice labeled Warren "a good
Democrat." This may be a well-
mennt tribute'to Wsrren's politi-
cal beliefs a-r>d policies, but it':
hardly likeiy to win convention
votes and influence veteran GOF'
Yet this "never seems to bother
Warren. He's blasted members of
his own party who he says confuse
social progress with Socialism.
"A political pirty," he once laid,
"that makes an epithet of the word
'welfare' is bouud "to lose."
Likewise. Warren openly oppos-
es GOF' colleagues whom he con-
siders isolationists. He says the
party cyn't bbelievp or practice
wortd co-operation and isolationism
both at the same time.
These out-poteen views make it
very probable that Warren will be
the refupe for Eisenhower backers
if they discover they can't nomi-
nate the fieneral. But while they
don't make him exactly acceptable
to supporters of Senator Taft, he
still can'r he counted out as p pos-
'sibli; compromise choice.

group of islands just east of the

Driver of the truck was Charles
