Ex-Senator opposes Clara Bow’s husband

Reno, Nevada (UP) –
Former U.S. Senator Berkeley L. Bunker, who lost two years ago in the Democratic primary, won a victory in Tuesday’s primary contest for representative over incumbent Maurice J. Sullivan, returns showed today.

He polled nearly 12,000 votes to Mr. Sullivan’s 8,300 and will meet Rex Bell, one-time movie cowboy and husband of former “it girl” Clara Bow, in November. Mr. Bell was unopposed on the Republican ticket.

Meanwhile, Democratic Senator Patrick A. “Pat” McCarran maintained a safe lead for renomination over Lieutenant Governor Vail Pittman.

Thomas hits Roosevelt peace plan

Socialist candidate visits city

Norman Thomas, who has had his eye on the White House door for 20 years, came to Pittsburgh today to continue his consistent, if futile, efforts to become the President of the United States.

Making his fifth stab at the Presidency on the Socialist ticket, the tall, gray-haired ex-minister is perfectly frank about his chances to beat out President Roosevelt or Governor Dewey.

He said:

No, I don’t think I’ll win this time, either. There’s no law against it but it doesn’t seem to be the custom.

‘Open ballot’ is goal

One of his main concerns, he said, was the keeping of the ballot open. He said:

There may come a time you know when a third party can muster sufficient strength to be more than just a name on the ballot.

Recently returned from a cross-country tour, the Socialist candidate declined to pick a winner in the Roosevelt-Dewey race. He did say, however, that he found more “anti” as well as “pro” Roosevelt feeling than he did Dewey backing or opposition.

During an interview in his room at the Fort Pitt Hotel, the well-known lecturer and writer talked more of winning the peace than of just winning the war.

Roosevelt plan hit

He claimed in no uncertain terms that the proposals of President Roosevelt are merely laying the groundwork for a third war and decried a “triple alliance,” masked as a new world order, that will “have cracks beneath the veneer in a few years.

He denied any infiltration of Communism into the Socialist Party, claiming beliefs of the parties were as far apart as the poles.

Mr. Thomas will speak at a rally arranged by local officers of the Socialist Party in the Fort Pitt Hotel tonight and will confer with Socialist leaders and a group of Allegheny County labor leaders.


Dewey, Hull agree on ‘waging peace’

Washington –
A new American attitude on world collaboration has emerged from the Dumbarton Oaks Conference.

Governor Thomas E. Dewey, Republican candidate for President, has received through his emissary, John Foster Dulles, a complete picture of the plans for post-war security. He has accepted those plans as being above party politics and agreed with Secretary of State Hull that henceforth this country will wage peace as it has waged war – united.

It is the first time in U.S. political history that the two great parties have joined in an avowal to pursue peace with the same determination that they have waged war. In this act, Governor Dewey has gained prestige while Secretary Hull has added another brilliant achievement in diplomacy to those which have marked his work for peace.

Owing to the complete success of his mission, Mr. Dulles will now have his place in history as the man who helped lift peace efforts above the range of debatable issues in domestic politics.


‘Dole economy’ rapped by Dewey

Saratoga Springs, New York (UP) –
Governor Thomas E. Dewey, in a message to delegates at the annual meeting of the State Industrial Union Council today, assailed those “who seek to perpetuate a dole economy” sand warned that “wage earners of this nation must go forward to an assured peace in which there will be jobs for all.”

His message, read to the meeting, made it clear that Governor Dewey wished to give full recognition to labor for its part in the war effort.


Cleveland newspaper supports Dewey

Cleveland, Ohio (UP) –
The Cleveland Plain Dealer, one of the Midwest’s leading morning newspapers, today announced that it would support Governor Thomas E. Dewey of New York for President.

The Plain Dealer, which backed Wendell Willkie in the 1940 campaign, said that another term for President Roosevelt would bring on “a totalitarian socialist country.”


Bricker to speak

Hartford, Connecticut (UP) –
Governor John W. Bricker of Ohio, Republican vice-presidential nominee, will make a major campaign speech at Norwalk, Sept. 23, Republican State Headquarters announced today. The address will be broadcast.
