that virtually the entire Democratic lead ership has already publicly an nounced to the world that Truman Is Inadequate as Among the major Democratic there now remains hardly a handful who have not

leader of the anti Truman revolt from the Under these it is not surprising that supporters of Justice William Douglas are con fident that most of the party bosses who have gone out on a limb for Eisenhower will turn to Douglas when Eisenhower saws the limb may of those who have been most active in the Eisenhower boom would really prefer the nomination of It is hardly surprising that the Left Wing Democrats should pre fer What is surprising is that such men as President Philip Murray should so ardently have supported For it is widely for that Eisenhower has privately stated that if he had been President he would have signed the ToftHartley the one domestic issue which above all divides left from dark suspicion exists that the Eisenhower boom has been used by the Left Wing Democrats only as a cover for the Douglas THE BACKERS assert least for public con with Eisenhower out of the Douglas can stop According to the analysis of the Douglas Truman is now short of nomination on the
