Southern Running Mate For Truman Speculated (IP] By Jack Bell Politicians wondered today whether the cries of Dixie Democrats outraged by the racial issue might Influ- ence President Truman to choose a .his running mate. The speculation among some Democrats here runs this way: 1, The revolt against Mr, Truman's ten-point civil rights pro- gram may never bring about the electoral college results its sponsors predict, but It could hurt the Presi- dent In border states. 2. The Iflte President Roosevelt was sufficiently concerned in 1944 by an even weaker Dixie protest to toss Henry Wallace overboard. He picked Mr. Truman, a Mlssourlan, for his vice-presidential nominee. 3, Someone like House Minority Leader Sam Rayburn of Texas could be chosen without serious of- fense to either racial or labor groups In the North. He would give south- ern Democrats a voice at court. The politicians who talked of these things emphasized that they are only speculating. President Truman alone knows how seriously he regards the southern complaints. His parly leaders are inclined to discount them. Senator J, Howard McOrath (R. Democratic national chair- man, told a news conference at Troy, N. Y., Tuesday that the Democratic party historically has championed human rights. He added he docs not expoct it to "full in this issue." It apparently Is the party leaders' view that they have more to worry about on the score of Wallace's third party bid for the presidency than ihcy have about the role of the South. Senator John H. Overtoil (D.- -snid In a letter to constituents thnt southern governors ought to call on the leaders In their states to hold conventions and possibly "organize a .southern democratic party of. our own and vote for its electors."

He visited the United States to see the 1030 Kentucky Derby and other rich American stakes and other- wise upheld the earldom's place as a patron of the turf. He had been recovering from a cold at his country house and suffered a relapse during the night. His heart failed and he died In his sleep. With him were his grandson and heir, Lord Stanley, and Lady Derby. Although much or his life was spent In service to his country, Lord Derby was best known 1'or his as- sociation with the English Derby. For nearly half a century he owned nnd bred some of the world's best race horses. They won for him purses of nearly pounds Lord Derby's eldest son, Lord Stanley, died In 103B. leaving a fortune or pounds With the Inheritance from his grandfather and father, the 29- ynnr-old Lord Stanley will be one of Britain's wealthiest men.

Max Factor will be the power behind, the, throne. day. This was the assurance given to more than 100 members of the Trempealeau Valley Association of Commercial clubs and guests at a meeting of the Taylor Commercial club last night by DeVan Staples Merrillan, a member of the county board. A leader in the recent movement to ask recall of County Judge Harry M. Perry, who last week resigned his offlce, Mr. Staples, in answer to a question as to whether anything will be done, by the board about looking Into the purported financial condition of the county, said "I think proper steps will be taken to go into the matter." He and George Purncll, valley as- sociation president, also of Merril- lan, were the principal speakers at the meeting which saw the Legion hall here crowded with voters from most of the county's townships. Blame on Citizens Discussing the situation which has "blown the lid" off one of the quieter and more conservative of the state's 71 counties. Mr. Staples laid the blame for anything which may be .wrong on the people them- selves, "The trouble is." said he, "that too few are Interested in county affairs. All citizens should take an interest and keep the county government from falling into the hands of a few. It's common knowledge that a ring has been ruling Jackson county with an iron hand for a good many years. "But that ring has now been broken and we have a golden op- portunity ahead. Don't let us get Into that same old web of conceit and silence which has trapped our predecessors." Mr. Purncll, who congratulated the clubs-on tho success they had with their recall move, emphasized that "In numbers there is strength" and pointed out the value of get- ting together often to exchange Ideos and discuss matters leading to better government. He, too, charged that "a ring has been running Jackson county af- fairs" and asserted that the county government "has been controlled by a very few men" for for too long, Thankful for Election "I'm ho said, "thai, Gov- ernor ftcnncbohm has not appointed successor to Mr. Perry. Now. as Js proper, the people will have an opportunity to decide." The Association of Commercial Clubs is nonpolltical, he said, but Is interested in better government. He complimented the members on getting more than signers to the recall petition "in the coldest weather of the year" and he said it all led to but one answer "Things have gone wrong and the people decided that tilings have gone far enough."

He said his resignation, made after what he termed "fundamental dis- agreement" with two board mem- bers, was "sincere." "Nothing has occurred to convince me Unit It was a mistake. When a board of education member wns a party to discrediting a superintend- ent of schools, it is evident that no professional man would consent to serve further in a community."
