Miss Snyder narrated the numbers in English, interpolating an occasional Yiddish phrase. She played piano accompaniments for Welichansky's Yiddish monologs. It was a wonderful combination! "Clinton Street," which described personalities indigenous to the famous section of lower New York, was rich in humor.

One met children, heard the phonographs, radios, gossipers and traders all the vocal expression and pantomime of Mr. Welichansky. "Motele" presented a conversation between a typical boy and his father, which ended by the boy telling the father that his grandmother had told him that the father did all of the things when he was a boy that he was chastising his son for doing. "They say I am just like you," said the boy. The father smiled and "gave up." Even though Miss Snyder had given an accurate narration of the stories in advance the "running translation" given me by Mrs.

Lewis Hecht, who sat next to me, by Israel Wellchansky and Selma Jewish Community Center in the Center 1, 1948. was wonderfully helpful, Welichansky's make-up for two bewhiskered characters work of art one a hypochondriac, and the other a talkative person. He had the audience in rib-tickling stitches. Miss Snyder's narration of incidents in the life of the late, great Russian actress, Alla Nazimova, was dramatic, intense and moving. tive The Theater" presentation was a of the provocative "Narracultural contribution, an artistic triumph, a rare delight.

Dewey of New York. He tossed into the ash can sO traditional factors that appeared to favor his opponent that the "experts" are still looking for the whys and wherefores. For example, he won: A fifth straight time for the Democrats, the first time any party had achieved this since the Civil War. And he won despite the following factors: 1. From the Civil until now, the party winning offWarn year congressional election always went on to win the presidency two years later.

The GOP captured control of Congress in 1946. 2. The Democratic party was split, with Henry A. Wallace winning more than a million votes, most of them perhaps from the Democrats, and Gov. J.

Strom Thurmond taking 38 electoral votes for the States' Righters. 3. The "Solid South" was broken for the first time since 1928 when Herbert Hoover captured five states for 62 electoral votes. 4. Many city and state party leaders, who had fought tooth and nail against Truman's nomination did little if anything to further his campaign.

Vote Was Small 5. The vote was small. All previous indicated crats needed a large turnout 000,000 or so -to beat Dewey. The probably will be less than 50,000,000. 6.

The Democratic war chest was small. None of the old regular contributors shelled out as before. Southern state organizations diverted their cash to the anti-Truman States' Rights candidates. The party usually gets more than 000 from the South. It received less than $50,000 for the 1948 campaign.

Upset Political 7. Truman triumphed without the electoral votes of New York and Pennsylvania- something no candidate either party had done since Woodrow Wilson won over Charles E. Hughes in 1916. Why did he win despite all these impediments? That's what many politicians are still asking themselves. A few in the Democratic leadership it out this way: He won because: 1.

Of economic prosperity. Voters usually let well enough alone. They were "afraid of a change," as one campaign leader put it. 2. He was the "underdog." A lot of people like to help an underdog.

One party chieftain said, "I know a Republican who voted for Truman because everybody else was jumping on the little guy." 3. Of the women's vote. This was described as a "terrific factor" because women going to market naturally hate high prices. Labor Vote 4. Of the labor vote and the Taft-Hartley Act.

Most all labor organizations went down the line for the President, who pledged to work for repeal of the Taft Hartley Act. 5. Of the farm vote uprising in the Midwest. The President won five Midwestern states, including three (Iowa, Ohio, Wisconsin) which went for Dewey in 1944. Thirty five of the House seats picked up by the Democrats from the Republicans were in eight Midwestern states.

other gains were: East 27 seats, Far West nine, Border States seven.) 6. Of a determined drive by the Democratic National Committee to counteract the sweeping Southern revolt following, the President's nomination Philadelphia. A party leader said there was no Truman support anywhere in the South right after the convention, except in North Carolina, and there it was only a minority. "As they campaien, developed," he said, to reduce this opposition to the point where we carried all but four Southern Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and South Carolina. We would have carried Alabama and Louisiana too if we had not been barred from the Alabama ballot and had been forced to run as independents in Louisiana." Another qualification this official made was that the President would have had to have the traditional Democratic rooster emblem on the ballot in Alabama to have won there.

The rooster was given to Thurmond in Louisiana and in Alabama. 7. The fight the President made for civil rights "consolidated the Negro vote in Illinois and Ohio," this official said. "We couldn't have won without those two states. We also could not have won without capturing seven of the 11 Southern states." Maxims SENATOR VS.
