Willkie Junior Refuses Comment on Father's Election Chances in Informal Interview Here

Confides He's Glad to Be at Harvard, But Still Prefers Princeton Campus

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Eluding representatives of the Boston press with the skill of the seasoned veteran, Phillip Willkie, former Princeton student and son of the Republican presidential candidate, registered in Fogg Museum yesterday morning and slipped quietly out to search for lodgings.

Young Willkie declined to commit himself on his father's chances in the election. "His speeches and his campaign speak for themselves," he said smilingly.

Glad to Se at Harvard

"Sure I'm glad to be at Harvard", he added, "but I guess I'll still root for Princeton at the Harvard-Princeton game," Willkie said that he planned to take several courses, mostly in English, in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

Asked if he would follow Jimmy Roosevelt in taking a job as his father's secretary if Wilkie senior goes to the White House, young Willkie replied "Father has better sense than that, I think I'll stick to Harvard."

As he walked down Quincy Street Willkie glanced at President Conant's house and said. "The Harvard campus isn't as bad as it's cracked up to be It's not Princeton but some of these buildings are pretty impressive."

The G.O.P. candidate's son said that he expected to be pestered to death when the Boston reporters located him, and added. "All I can do is to try to keep quiet. After all it's my father who's running for President, not me."
