Olds Foes Poll Senate,
Call Rejection Sure; Vote Likely Tuesday •y th« Auoclatad Press Critics of President Truman’s reappointment of Federal Power Commissioner Leland Olds said today they have polled the Senate and the results indicate Mr. Olds will be rejected. The count is not challenged sub stantially by administration lead ers, who expect a vote Tuesday on whether the Senate shall con firm Mr. Olds. His opponents told a reporter they have 45 of the 96 Senators pledged to vote against confirma tion. Although a few of the 45 are among the more than a score of Senators who are away, many of them in Europe, any such mar gin would be conclusive. Mr. Olds’ rejection has been con ceded privately by most of those backing the nomination. . Recess Appointment Forecast. They are said to have told Mr. Truman that he can expect de feat of the nomination, despite his appeal to the Democratic Na tional Committee to stir up grass roots support for the appointee. This support came in the form of j telegrams to some Senators, but didn’t seem to alter the situation. The President, who seldom quits on a nominee, has made confir-! mation such an issue that one Senator close to the White House said he would not be surprised of Mr. Olds is given a recess appoint ment, even though the Senate re jects him. That would keep Mr. Olds on the job until January—but prob ably without pay—when the Presi dent could submit his name to the j Senate again. Republicans were said to be lined up almost solidly against Mr. Olds. Committee Rejection, 10 to X. The Senate Commerce Commit tee turned him down, 10 to 2. despite Mr. Truman's assertion that opposition stemmed largely from “powerful corporations sub ject to regulation by the commis sion.” He called Mr. Olds a dili gent public servant. Chairman Edwin C. Johnson re plied that the committee was “shocked beyond description” by the “radical writings” of Mr. Olds in the 1920s. Senators from oil and gas States were almost uniformly opposing Mr. Olds, whose critics charge also that he wants to bring natural gas under Power Commission regula tion. * Political Faux Pas Seen. Some Democrats apparently felt Mr. Truman had muffed one polit ically when he told his news con ference yesterday that he had asked the national committee to stir up support for Mr. Olds as a matter of party discipline. Defeat of the nomination wouldn’t help such discipline, they argued. Expressing a Republican view point, Senator Schoeppel of Kan sas called tlje President’s action ‘‘a brazen effort” to put on execu tive pressure. Senator Lucas of Illinois, the Democratic leader, told reporters he is determined to push the Olds nomination for a vote. He wouldn't forecast the outcome.
