pendent or Jeffersonian Democrats with the Republicans in a united effort to defeat the New Deal party The fact that the New York ald Tribune a traditionally lican paper renewed the suggestion of coalition by an editorial on Its first page recommending that a Democrat be chosen for vice dent caused much comment among the members of Congress who are preparing to go to Cleveland for the Republican national convention next week Two interpretations were placed upon the move The New Dealers of course insisted that it showed the Republican party was changing to include all opponents of the New Deal irrespective of previous party affiliation and that Republicans alone were not sufficiently to wage the campaign fully this year The Republican leaders the other hand insisted that it was in accord with moves that have been made in various campaigns to attract voters of the opposite party Bolting Thus in nearly every campaign there are bolters who form a league and keep their campaign efforts separate and distinct from the regular party organizations In this year in particular the effort to develop a coalition ment has had its origin in a edge that there are many pendent Democrats who differ on the New Deal and who belieVe that its really a tion from historic Democratic trine They construe the New Deal therefore to be and were there ways by which the name Democratic could be put on a ballot and a contest as to its use put before an impartial court there would be plenty of argument to the effect that a party which deserted its 1932 platform so extensively had taken the initiative In the bolting But whatever the merits of the controversy be from the point of a Democrat the problem is one of strategy for the Republican leadership Wil It try to corral the Democratic vote that refuses to go along with the New The nomination of a Democrat for the vice presidency is of course a conspicuous way by which the Republicans can size their willingness to orm a other con- doubt will come up during the campaign as for instance the pledge to appoint a coalition cabinet Ambitions Frustrated Among the factors working against the naming of a crat for vice president is the ness of various Republican rants for that nomination to get the second place on the ticke for themselves This motivates many delegates who are entrusted with vice presidential booms The decision In the final sis will he made by Governor don or Senator Vandenberg either one of whom seems likely to be nominated at Cleveland next week Whatever the spokesman for the successful Candidate decides next
