Realignmeht of Parties Thinks Some Factions Will Switch Parties By W EARL HALL Staff Representative are deep hid den currents in this as there were two weeks ago at the GOP meeting which have greater longrange significance than the scramble for the nomina Twins Born in 2 Towns girls born inseparate towns wore reported doing well Wednesdayat Ware Hospital Coskie 19 West Brookfield gave birth to the first baby as the ambulance spec through that town The second was bornin the hospital yard here The mothers condition was good other things that meet tion and the eye The socalled loyalty oath which the northern forces attempted to force upon a rebellious south may I think the most important step taken since 193G to revise the es sential charac ter of our two major parties It was in 1936 that the historic twothirds rule went out the window Although a compromise be tween the fac t i o n s w a s W EARL HALL reached Tuesday night to prevent a crippling party split the divi sion of power and thinking is still there Now those with Dixiecrat lean Ings have been put on notice that they must accept the political phil osophy once identified as the New Deal now labeled as the Fair the FEPC so un palatable to southern Democrats Demos to GOP An almost inescapable conse quence of his course coupled as it is with the open embracedjby the GOP convention that nominated Dwight D be to drive socalled oldline Democrats into the Republican party By the same token forces are being set in mo tion to veer the Wayne Morse fac tion of the Republicans over into the iparty which bearsthe Dcrrip cratic label The spread between Morse and Hubert Humphrey is much narrower than the spread be tween Mouse and Capehart In short if the party realignment now so definitely launched pro ceeds the setup will lead to a pair of parties as clearly distinguished by their basic political and econom ic philosophies as are the Labor party and the Conservative party in Britain today One will be for gov ernment with a capital G andcall itself the other will spell government with a small g and stand for a preservation of free enterprise Since 1932 It would be a mistake to assume that the decision reached here in the wee hours Tuesday morn ing was reached impulsively To the contrary it has been in the making since 1932 at least If FDR didnt incubate it he undoubtedly gave vigor to it and bequeathed the idea to Harry Truman H trans cends all else in the Fair Deal today The part of the story that isnt being told by the Democrats in fact they might even deny it is that the principle at stake in this purge of the socalled oldliners is considered more important than victory in this particular presiden tial campaign In their thinking if not in their conversations for public hearing they regard the logic of this purg ing course as inexorable It im presses them that now is a prop itious time to let the inevitable happen Consider Defeat Even more hushhush in the presence of the press is the convic tion of more than a few Democrats in this convention that the long range interests of their party will be better served by defeat than by victory this particular year The reasoning goes as follows Theres an immense cleaning up to be done If a Democrat does if the party will be torn to shreds If a Republican does it the Dem ocrats can take over unscathed Suggestions have been advanced In print that the venerable Aibcn Barkley was being cast unwitting ly in the role of interim custodian of the Democratic organization Nobody else the story went could fcold party lines intact
