Offer of Cabinet Post
To Wheeler Within
Few Months Predicted
By Phelps Adams
North American Newtpaper Alliance
Former Senator Burton K.
Wheeler of Montana was reported
today to have patched up his dif
ferences with the national admin
istration and to be heading for an
important post in President Tru
man's official family.
At least one among Mr. Wheeler’s
friends in the Senate Insisted today
that the Montana Democrat would
be offered a cabinet post within the
coming months.
Mr. Wheeler came to the Senate
as a progressive Democrat in 1923,
and was a candidate for the vice
presidency on the Progressive Par
ty's ticket, headed by Senator Robert
La Follette in 1924. At the outset
of his fourth Senate term, he split
with President Roosevelt and the
New Deal orf the Supreme Court
packing Issue, and thus was em
broiled In one of the bitterest feuds
which the Capital has seen In recent
Defeated In Primaries.
Last ypar he was defeated in the
primaries when he sought the Dem
jocratlc nomination for a fifth term.
! Mr. Wheeler returned to the pri
vate practice of law here and early
this year was persuaded to accept
a post as counsel to the Senate War
Investigating Committee.
Because the salary which the com
mittee was able to pay was small,
Congress passed and sent to the
White House a bill which would
have permitted the former Senator
to continue the private practice of
law while serving as committee
counsel. This President Truman
Senatorial sources report that the
President was deeply disturbed by
[Mr. Wheeler's action In accepting
the committee post tendered to him
by the Republican leadership, pre
paring to begin an investigation of
alleged scandals in connection with
the purchase of oil for the Navy.
The President, in a long conference
with Mr. Wheeler, is reliably re
ported to have told the Montanan
that a promising future awaited
him within the Democratic party,
and that he should not desert it.
Remained With Committee.
Despite this appeal, Mr. Wheeler
remained with the committee for
some weeks after his Interview with
the President ,an danother bill au
thorizing committee counsel to con
tinue to pursue the private practice
of law was sent to the President.
While this bill was before the Presi
dent, committee members were
startled by a report that Attorney
General Clark would resign this
month, and that the President would
appoint Mr. Wheeler to succeed him.
Within two hours after this re
port reached the committee, Chair
man Brewster received Mr. Wheel
ler’s resignation as committee coun
sel and within a few hours after
'the news of the resignation had
Stop-Dewey Campaign Spurred
By Governor's Western Trip
By lh« A«»ociat»d Pr«»
Gov. Thomas E. Dewey’s scheduled
invasion of the West stirred fresh
speculation in Washington today of
a possible stop-Dewey drive among
other prospective candidates for the
1948 Republican presidential nom
The New York Governor’s July
junket to scenic points beyond the
Mississippi is regarded by Repub
licans here as more of a vote-seeking
trip than the sight-seeing tour it has;
been labeled in Albany dispatches.
While Gov. Dewey has said he is j
taking his family along and making j
no speeches, his friends haven’t i
tried to deny that he plans to meet;
about as many Republican leaders
as want to see him.
He will make a stop in Salt Lake
| City for tt>e annual Governor’s Con
ference, which sometimes has pro
vided a sounding board for Gov.
j Dewey in the past.
All of which has started talk
| among friends of some other Re
publican aspirants about ganging
up against the New Yorker in the
party's Philadelphia convention, a
little more than a year away.
But one GOP Senator -who is cer
tain to carry his State’s favorite-;
son indorsement into that conven- j
tion, said he thinks the stop-Dewey |
urge among other possible candi
dates will never jell into even an |

Instead, this Senator said he ex- i

faith in favorite sons and thej
strength of more widely supported;
candidates, each hoping for a stale- j
mate that will give him a chance
for the nomination.

The obvious inference is that
what is Senator Taft’s will not be
Gov. Dewey's.
Similarly, some Taft supporters

Stassen—or anybody else, for that
matter—block Gov. Dewey out in

Mr. Stassen, the only announced
candidate, has been eyeing South
ern delegates. But his recent trip
to Texas has been regarded as a
bid for secondary support in an
area where Senator Taft has been
the favorite in the past.
Mr. Stassen already has framed
a direct challenge to Gov. Dewey
in Wisconsin, where Wendell Willkie
[met his political Waterloo in 1944.
That year Gov. Dewey played coy,
but took the majority of the dele
gate crop anyway.
The New York Governor’s home

from the Dewey column because of
