my hope to be wholly I objective and detached in my approach to a question which normally is likely to be more whispered about than talked about The subject is religion in politics Right now the question is being asked in more specific form Can a Catholic fie elected president For the first time since 1928 when Al Smith of New York was rather decisively defeated in his bid for the White House by Her bert Hoover a prominent Cath olic layman Sen John F Ken nedy of Massachusetts is a leading perhaps the leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination Public what they are worthy the Boston man the top in a sizable fiefdVpt Its remembered of course that he out by the closest of margins for second place on the ticket in 1956 with his most enthusiastic support curiously enough coming from the Deep South ANYBODY who thinks this question can be worked out with a slide rule or a book of popula tion statistics showing the num ber of Catholics and Protestants in our country is ripe for some disillusionment It just isnt that simple At least a dozen im ponderables figure in the mat ter and nobody is wise enough to weigh them against each other Predictions arent facilitated donald told newsmen in a has tily prepared statement THESE TERMS were re jected unanimously by the com mittee members as being com pletely The industry spokesman R Conrad Cooper said the offer rejected by the USW would have provided a 15 cent hourly pack age providing for increased wages and benefits over the period of two The USWs executive commit tee Sunday rejected the peace proposal aimed at ending the 83day strike which has idled a halfmillion steelworkers and in related industries The union president said he has advised the White House by telephone on the status of the negotiations in the nations longest steel walkout However no report of the conversation was forthcoming from the union Washington or President Eisen howers vacation White House in Palm Calif EISENHOWER WARNED in meetings with union and indus Victory HECKLER MANHANDLED Bruce Farrow who used an amplifier to heckle a Labor Party campaign at Manchester England is hustled from the scene The AP Photofax incident was just one in a series point ing up the importance of Thursdays general election try chiefs last week that the economychoking strike must end quickly The Presidents words were taken to mean that he might invoke 80day backto work provisions of the Taft Hartley law if settlement was not possibly when he returns from his Palm Springs vacation Thursday Sources in Washington said the government may call the ne gotiators to Washington if an impasse is not broken here in an effort to pressure a settle ment without direct government intervention If the talks are moved and still no agreement reached the source told UPT the government then would be ready to invoke the TaftHartley Act Laborites Closing Gap British Election Nears LONDON Labor and Conservative parties Mon day roared into the final lap of their election battle running neck and neck Public opinion polls showed the Laborites led by Hugh Gait skell had dramatically closed Prime Minister Harold Ma cmillahs Cbnsery a tives seeking a third term in too much by history in this par ticular area The picture is by no means in sharply drawn lines not even in that Al Smith Herbert Hoover contest of 1928 which saw the Solid South cracked by Republicanism for the first time in well over a half century Our assumptions have been all too glib and unsup All of us recall of course that Al Smith was a devout Catholic But he had several other marks of identification all of them unpalatable to Dixie He was for repeal of the prohi bition amendment and its en forcement act Moreover he was a New Yorker who wore the badge of Tammany Hall with pride Both of these facts were anathema to the Deep South THEN TOO nation was experiencing a time of un precedented prosperity in 1928 living in a fools paradise as it later But the peo ple were in no mood for a change A Republican victory was about as much foreordained in 1928 as a New Deal triumph was four years later in the depths of the depression All things considered theres no assurance that any other nominee put up by the Demo cratic party in 1928 even Frank lin D Roosevelt himself could have won over a still glamorous Herbert Hoover in times of pip ing prosperity We may there fore be proceeding from a ques tionable premise in our assump tion that antiCatholicism beat Al Smith QUITE ANOTHER interpreta tion was placed on a heavily CONTINUED ON

federal me diator Robert H Moore fail to crack the negotiation dead lock President Eisenhower could invoke the TaftHartley law for an 80day return to work period The strike caught shippers and many union chiefs by surprise Locals representing Atlantic Coast dockers had agreed to a 15day contract extension and locals along the Gulf Coast were expected to follow suit But the key to the agreement
