Dwl- ght D. Eisenhower's top policy advisers were sharply divided today over whether the general should set up headquarters in Chicago and make an on the spot fight for the Republican presidential nomination. One group believes the general should set up shop in Chicago next month and make himself available to delegates and political leaders. They feel there will be a multitude ot questions which will arise nt the convention and that It would be a tremendous help to the Eisenhower cause to have the general available for making decisions and talking to those who wish to Roe him. * * * ON THE OTItER hand, another group believes it would be best for the general to stay away from Chicago and not give any impression that he Is asking delegates to vote for him. The thinking of this group runs like this: Tho general has never asked n delegate to vote for him in all tho talks ho has had with delegations in tho east, midwest and west. El­ senhower himself has said he has not asked a single delegate for his vote and will not. Tho general, this group says, should keep his campaign on this level. They would Injure tho Elsenhower cause if he plunged Into a personal fight In Chicago for tho nomination. * * « HOWEVER, NO decision haa been reached on tho question, according to sources within the Eisenhower official family. ' Paul G. Hoffman, one of the general's principal advisors, arrived today tor a huddle with Eisenhower before flying to Texas tomorrow for a speech which a friend said, will be "a rip snorter." The friend of the general who made the comment asked that his name not be used. Ho declined to amplify the remark but It wnir evident Elsenhower Intends to speak at Dalles on the Texas delegate situation at tho Republican national convention. Persons contesting for delegate seats represent tho general and Sen. Robert A. Tatt, his principal rival for the GOP presidential nomination. Tho republican national committee will consider tho contests. House Votes Today To End AH Price Controls County Officers Hear Talk on Flood Control Des Moines," June 20 (JP) —"Flood damages can bo curtailed, but there's no cheap way, no easy way," says Col. O. A. Finley of Rock Island, III., district engineer of the corps of engineers. Col. Finley yesterday told county engineers and supervisors here that a man with a leaky root and a community with a flood control problem are alike. He said some communities were like the man with the leaky roof who couldn't fix It when it rained and didn't need to when it stopped raining. "A flood strikes a community and It immediately becomes a terrible problem about which something must be done right now,' ho said. "Then the sun comes out, the water goes down and everybody feels better."
