r WASIOlIGTOlf, March -President Harry Truman,
after so von years in lh White House, announced matter of
factly tonight he will not be a candidate for reelection.
Speaking before a jam-packed $100 per plate Jackson
Day dinner hero, the President said, "I do not foel it is my
duty io upend another four years in the White House."
" The terse announcement took-about two minutes and
came al the very end of his speech. Truman added, however,
lhat he expects the Democrats to win the November election
by continuing their present policies.
The next president's tenure in the White House will be
bound by the recently ratified 22nd amendment. It specifies
lhat no president shall have more than two full consecutive
ierms or a total of 10 years at the job.
