June 1952
New Republic;6/30/52, Vol. 126 Issue 26, p6
This article focuses on the significance of John Sidney Fine, governor of Pennsylvania, and Gen. Douglas MacArthur, in possible success of the Republican Party in the U.S. If the Republican party succeed in the presidential elections then this man will be one of the principal actors of this win. Governor Fine, small, bald and jowly, is a colorless little man who holds some 32 Republican convention votes and who may possibly influence as many as 60 of the 70 Pennsylvania delegates' votes. Governor Fine, a child of party and machine politics, has said a number of times that it is traditional to wait until the eve of the convention before instructing the delegates, and that he considers the selection of nominees the exclusive business of the politicians.
