But O'Dwyer has! told friends that he does not want to run. Moreover, whether or not O'Dwyer changes his mind, he suf- fers from certain disadvantages. In the first place, labor leader Da- vid Dubinsky is emphatically not an O'Dwyer supporter. Dubinsky controls New York's Liberal par- ty, which polled almost an- tl O'Dwyer votes in the recent campaign. Since a Democrat must pile up an overwhelming lead in New York city to win the state, enthusiastic Liberal party support is highly Important. In the second place, although O'Dwyer is very popular in New York city, he has no reputation upstate-, where he would certainly be tagged Roosevelt Health service last the dispute for the the way open for a new peace meeting between Lewis and the op- 35 Czechs Sentenced by Red Court By Richard Kasischke Money Creek Man Object of Hunt By TOO Neighbors Money Creek, The object of a wide search by party of nearly 100 residents of this community last night, an 83- year-old retired farmer was re- ported recovering at his home to- day from the effects of exposure suffered while he was lost for nine I hours in the bluffs near here Thurs- day afternoon and evening.
