May 8, 1950

I've said that no third term appeals to me. On April 16 '50 I expressed my opinion on that.

Now if we can find a man who will take over and continue the Fair Deal, Point IV, Fair Employment, parity for farmers and a consumers protective policy, the Democratic Party can win from now on.

It seems to me now that the Governor of Illinois has the background and what it takes. Think I'll talk to him.
