These Days by George e. Sokolsky Dubinsky a next Moye now that David dub risky has won his strike As had been planned j he is again master in his own \ House and can devote himself to the More gentle Art of politics for 1 David Dubinsky is the dominant i personality in Nev. York states i to Cral party which has produced Between 300,000 and 400.000 votes in some elections the Liberal party is a breakaway from the american labor party which was organized upon instructions of president Franklin d Roosevelt to catch those voters in new York who would vote for Roosevelt or for mayor la Guardia but not under the Lam Many Hall Banner the american labor party came under the control of Vito Mercantonio and was suspected by Many of being an adjunct of the communist party. Such pro Roosevelt and anti tammany ites As a a Berie jr., David Dubinsky and Alex Rose head of the Milliner s Union organized the Liberal party which up to now has been an adjunct of the democratic party and has been controlled by Dubinsky in the forthcoming gubernatorial election the Liberal party that is Dubinsky faces a dilemma. According to All the rules of life governor Averell Harriman deserves and ought to get the Liberal party endorsement which should be Worth enough to put him Over quite comfortably however it Nelson Rockefeller decides to run on the Republican ticket tor governor he can have the nomination because that party in this state is without leadership or Money and if Rockefeller can produce nothing else he can provide Money. Therefore Many republicans Are for him because even if they Annot win they will at least be on a Gravy train for Dubinsky this is Tough. Nelson Rockefeller has been a to Lotical protege of mrs. Anna Rosenberg the Brilliant Public relations counsel who is very close to both David Dubinsky and Averell Harriman. If Dubinsky switches from Harriman to Rockefeller will he be an ingrate and if he rejects Nelson Rockefeller who has been something of a buddy of do bin sky a. Will that also not be Avera to etude can the Liberal party like a bar association endorsing judges say that both Are not bad and if both Are not bad who Are the sheep to vote for the it.

Then they talked about de Murrow the broadcaster who visits Hie Homes of celebrities and asks genteel questions. Both Bunche and Murrow have apparently declined the Honor. The democratic candidate is Likely to be mayor Robert Wagner of new York and it is impossible to see How Dubinsky can refuse him the Liberal party endorsement after he helped him win this face saving strike. But if the i Iberal party endorses Wagner for senator can it refuse Harriman its support can the l Iberal party run Nelson Rockefeller for governor and mayor Robert Wagner cers and a court officials attending the first traffic courts conference called by Gin.

And he has done very Well thereby. However can he pull his votes with him As he does workers in a stroke that of course is the question that can Only be answered at the polls. A fellow who has a Treasury of $200, 000.000 can be a very attractive person and Dave Dubinsky has Oiler favourable qualities. It will be fun to see a Campaign in new York in which the contenders Are millionaire Harriman versus millionaire Rockefeller both lovers of the people. Harriman has been More consistently new Deal than Nelson Rockefeller who has worked in the Roosevelt. Truman and Eisenhower administrations. There Are five Rockefeller Brothers and of them.
