Aver- ell Harriman have a serious chance for the Democratic nomination? It is time to ask this question, since Harriman's remarkable victory over Sen. Esti Kefauver in the Democratic primary here in Wash ington. For all his great ability, it has been hard to take Harriman, a shy and very wealthy man who has never run for political office be- fore, really seriously as a presiden- tial candidate. But a man who can beat the formidable Kefauver by four to one, even in a relatively obscure primary contest, cannot be laughed off, .Harriman has been displaying an impressive combina- tion of courage and shrewdness in his new political role. And especial- ly since the primary here, a good many hard-headed political pro- fessionals are beginning to think that he just might make it. I The Harriman strategy is clearly a sort of bold three-horse parlay, i The first assumption is that Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois will be right out of the running by conven-1 tion time.

The second assumption on which the Harriman strategy is obviously based is that there will be a cru- cial struggle at the convention be- tween the Northern and Southern wings of the Democratic party on the civil rights issue.

Ike Joins Battle For Support of Texas Delegates Hoffman Reports Trouble Raising Funds for General By EDWARD O. ETHELL DENVER (ft Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, apparently ready for some political slug- ging, pointed for Texas today and the middle of his first bitter po- litical fight. All indications before his depar- ture from Denver were that his flying week-end dash to Texas and Nevada was the first departure Ei- senhower will make from the care- fully polite routine he has been 'following in his quest for the Re- publican presidential nomination. Beyond that, advisers said, there will be a forthright speech on na tional security, a stronger fight for western votes, another conference with Gov. John S. Fine seeking Fine's bloc of Pennsylvania votes and an appearance at Chicago to talk with more delegates prior to the nomination. More Funds Needed Meanwhile, Paul G. Hoffman, ad- viser to the National Citizens Com- mittee for Eisenhower, said he was having trouble raising funds' for the general's campaign. He said the effort wasn't going in the red, but he added that Wall Street is not behind the campaign. Hoffman told reporters that Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, the gener- al's chief opponent for the GOP nomination, is "more attractive to the people of great money" than the general. Hoffman said the larg- est contribution he has picked up ,n a recent money-raising- trip was He did not identify the con- tributor. Hoffman also told reporters in a news conference late yesterday: L He would not accept appoint- ment as secretary of state. He be- ieves his job is to remain as head of the Ford Foundation, 2.

More- jver, a pesky drizzle brought .29 of an inch of rainfall to the city the minorities in the big from noon Friday to noon today. and the Democratic leaders in the i The official weather forecast for Ne cisco Northern industrial areas must have this minority vote in order to A Northern bloc, led by Sena- tors Hubert Humphrey of Minne- sota, and Herbert Lehman, of New York, has already been organized, to write the strongest possible civil rights plank into the Democratic platform, come what may. This bloc probably has the votes to tri- umph over other leaders who favor compromise with the South. Such a triumph, it is reasoned, will be a victory for Harriman, and a bad setback for the front- running Kefauver, whose stand on Civil rights has been equivocal. For example, Sen. Humphrey, (who will control a crucial 40 or so un- committed votes from his area) could not comfortably lead a bitter fight on civil rights, and then sup- port the lukewarm Kefauver af- ter winning his fight. Other North- ern leaders, with the crucial minority vote in mind, will come over to Harriman. The third part of the Harriman three-horse parlay assumes the support of President Truman when the chips are down. As Truman is reported to have remarked to one White House visitor, in obvious ref- erence to Kefauver, "A lot of peo- j pie forget that a President of the! United States, even when he's not j a candidate himself, has a lot to i say about wBo gets nominated." In the Harriman camp, Truman is credited with controlling upwards of 200 votes at the convention, and i Ys influencing many more. If Stev- enson is out of the running, it is reasoned, these votes should go to Harriman, the only candidate who has gone down the line for the whole Truman program. Obviously all three assumptions on which the Harriman strategy is based are risky in the extreme. There will be plenty of Democratic leaders, North and South, who will want at all costs to avoid a party split on the civil rights is- sue. Harriman's all-out stand on the whole Fair Deal program, in- cluding civil rights, involves the danger of his becoming an essen- tially sectional candidate, like Sen, Richard Russell, with strong sec- tional support, but without the sup- port necessary for a clear major- calls for an unrelenting continua- tion of the cool spell tonight and Sunday with a chance of showers late Sunday afternoon or night.

The department's statement said in part: "An allegation was made recent- ly to the department that Mr.Owen Lattimore was making arrange- ments for a possible visit to the USSR and-or its satellites. The department immediately began an investigation of this allegation. "Pending the results of this in- vestigation, the Customs Bureau was notified that Mr. Lattimore (who was not in possession of a passport duly validated for such travel) should not be permitted to the U.S." Yor an 51 ina 1 of Every 10 Unfit for Draft WASHINGTON Just abou one out of every ten men classifie in the draft is turning up as unfi for military duty.

As to where the tip originated, he said it came from an official source, adding: "The department doesn't take action on fantasies or inanities." Pressed by newsmen, McDer- mott said the source was not con- gress. Last night, after the State De- partment announcement, Latti- more said he has no plans for go- ng anywhere out of the country. Any such talk is he said, and he wondered how it got started.

Eisenhower will agree at Chicago on a foreign policy plank and remove what Taft called the "dangerous element" of a party split. Taft, battling Eisenhower for the Republican presidential nomina- tion, told a news conference he sees no great difference in principle between him and the general on. either foreign or domestic issues. The Ohio senator, predicting his own nomination on an early ballot in the GOP convention opening July 7, also charged Eisenhower forces had used state patronage in efforts to "pressure" Taft dele- gates in New York and New Jersey to vote for the general. Taft told reporters he believes that a party split over foreign policy can be avoided by efforts of John Foster Dulles, former State Department adviser, to draft a plank in that field. Dulles has been named special adviser to the GOP platform committee. "I believe Mr, Dulles is in a position to draft a plan that will be acceptable and eliminate the only dangerous element of a split in the Taft said. Although Eisenhower has been quoted as calling Taft an "isola- tionist." The Ohio senator said sees only a difference in methods, not in viewpoint, between them.

National Award for General Excellence Comes to Paper The Republican-Herald will receive another national award, this for "general ex- tonight in Buffalo, N. Y. The award third place in the major division of the 1951 National Editorial Association Better Newspaper contest- will be presented at the 67th annual convention of the as- sociation, an organization of American newspapers. Bases for judging the gen- eral excellence division were mechanical excellence, gener- al and news cov- erage, literary excellence, pro- motion of community interests, editorial page and advertising enterprise. Chairman of the judging committee was Merritt E. Ben- son, professor in the School of Journalism, University of Washington in Seattle. Referr- ing to The Republican-Herald, Prof. Benson said, "General and departmental coverage of news coupled with a fine mech- anical production job proved a strong factor in the selection of The Republican-Herald as a winner. Much enterprise is evi- denced in the advertising col- umns and the editorial page is pleasing in appearance and in- teresting in content." Two California newspapers won first and second general excellence awards: The San Jose News and The Monterey Peninsula Herald, respectively. Two other Minnesota news- papers also receive NEA hon- ors. The Austin Daily Herald won first place in the "Best Advertising" classification, and the Rochester Post-Bulletin won a third-place typography award. Last year The Republican- Herald received four NEA honors at Seattle. In' Buffalo tonight to ac- cept the award on behalf of the newspaper is David Mof- fitt, promotion manager. Fea- tured speaker at tonight's con- vention banquet at the Statler Hotel in Buffalo will be John Foster Dulles, U. S. foreign policy expert, on the subject "What Is Wrong With Our For- eign Republican Lack of Funds Stassen said he deliberately halt- ed his political activity the past month so that all attention might be focused on Eisenhower on his return from Europe. He added that "lack of funds also forced me to curtail many activities." Only one Stassen headquarters, in Philadel- phia, remains open. Before Eisenhower left Europe Stassen said that although he was staying in the presidential race until the end, he favored Eisen- hower over Taft. He even suggest- ed publicly to Taft that the two of them get together and support "Ike" for the GOP nomination. Taft rejected the idea. "I doubt if I would have ever made the Stassen said, "if I had known that Eisenhower would speak out so conservatively on so many vital domestic issues. "I wish very much that both Ei- senhower and Taft were a bit more liberal in their viewpoints. "My effort will be to unite the party on a more liberal program and to lead it to its first, victory in 20 years next November." 29 Million Visit National Forests WASHINGTON IB Twenty-nine million persons visited National Forests last year for hunting, fish- ing, hiking and winter sports, the Agriculture Department says.

Amphibious Team WASHINGTON Wi-The Marines, whose battle specialty is spear- heading landing operations, are or- ganizing their first permanent am- phibious training team in Japan. The Marine Corps sent a troop training "unit to Japan in 1946 to help the Army in its amphibious training. Another team went over" in 1950. The Army troops with whom they worked eventually par-' ticipated in landings in Korea, in- cluding the big amphibious opera- tion at Inchon. The Marine Corps, in announc- ing the new organization yester- day, did not say where it would be located but it was understood to be near Yokosuka. Brig. Gen. Wil- liam W.
