THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE 2, I960 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PAGS If Nixon Faces Chore In Farm Belt Talk at Both TIRE KING STORES I By LVLE C. WILSON | WASHINGTON - UPl - Vice j President Richard M. Nixon's j toughest pre-convention choir is Â« farm belt speech booked for June 120. j He will speak before the Norvh I Dakota State Convention of tht American Legion. Nixon agreed about a week ago to appear there, having previously refused to go into North Dakota in Juqe. The vice president may have changed his mind because he is an organization politician who believes in answering distress calls when they come. Republican distress in North Dakota centers on a June 28 spe- ris! election to name a successor to the late Republican Sen. William Lanper. North Dakota is a Republican state with maverick instincts. The June 2S special election will be a valid test of farm state voter sentiment just a month before the Republican National Convention meets in Chicago. Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson and the price of farm products are the prime North Dakota issues. That is what makes it tough for Nixon. It is not likely that he can get in and out of North Dakota without taking a firm and public position on farm policy. An American Legion speech can be devoted wholly to national defense i j and related matters. But thrrr I will be news conferences, huddles I with local political leaders and ; other occasions when Nixon will I be asked to sneak out. i Gov. John E. Davis is the Re- j publican senatorial nominee; j Rep. Quentin Burdick the Demo- j crat. If Burdick licks Davis, ilu | practical politicians in both parties will hold Benson responsible. Republican farm belt candidates for House nnd Srnnie i would judge that result to mean Â· that fliey must repudiate Benson i to survive. | For Nixon and the Republican 1 Party, the election of a Demo- crat to fill Lander'* *eÂ«t would be damaging to morale. Nixon would be further hurt by a Democratic, victory following hi.i appearance in rhe itate. 'I'he vice president may meet this situation i by repudiating Benson as, (or example, by announcing t h a i Benson wnuld not be in a Nixon cabinet. Thnt would he big political news because it would rrprrvn! a major break with the Eisenhower administration. If Republican Davis is elected. Republican c h a n c e s of big congressional gains in me November election will improve. Election of Burdick would indicate that, the Democrats would hold their own or better in the f a r m brii.
