chief executives post If he survives the political scalp ing parties led by the moment by Milo Reno he will be only 52 years old by that time the Post said Also he is modest moral and magnetic Most of all he has a plan 4s one scans the political horizon he is almost tlie only living man that does have a plan Wherever Mr Roosevelt or other 1 wings of the new deal may be going 4 Mr Wallace is headed straight for 1 a definite set goal He is against 3 inflation regimentation agricultura controls cuts curtailments artlfi Icialities and all laws repealing the law of supply and demand Rather he
