Ike Seen Favor ing Nixon Candidacy WASHINGTON MM--President 'Eisenhower Wednesday informally recommended lib- eralifcation of the .law which fortSids putting nuclear weap- onsjih the hands of America's allie^. This could stir up a stoup in Congress. l3$enhower also pame out abojtl as far as lie could, without breaking his own po- litio^l ground rules, for Vice President Richard M. Nixon for'fhe Republican presiden- titil'Oomination. Tilte Republicans, he told hisjnews conference, have a numfier of big, eminent men who^could serve as President with; distinction. But he said it (s.° his policy not to talk ab'ouj one, individual until the nomination is a matter of history ,· since "We're all human, and Iwe don't know what is around the next corner." He said, though, that he is sure.Nixon isn't unaware of his admiration and respect and he wants to make it clear that by no manner or means is he dissatisfied with the man who looks like the nominee. There isn't a Nixon challenger in sight and Eisenhower declined to name others in the GOP he thinks might do for President. How far the administration might go toward prodding Congress to change the legal ban on giving nuclear weapons to allies is not yet apparent. Following the presidential session with reporters, White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty was asked whether the administration is drafting an amendment to the law or merely exploring the feasibility of seeking a change. "1 think the answer is that they are exploring it," Hagerty replied. Sen. Clinton P. Anderson! (D-NM), chairman of the Senate-House Atomic E n e r g y Committee, said Wednesday night the law would have to be changed before the United States could give complete nuclear weapons or parts to any other country. Anderson expressed hope that Eisenhower will "now go ahead and disclose to the American people the full de tails of his thinking on this subject and that he request his desired change in the law so that the tremendously important question may be fully considered by the Joint Com mittee on Atomic Energy, the Congress and the public." Anderson said in a statement that, when the Atomic Energy Act was last changed in 1958, administration officials gave repeated assurances that, the change made then "would not permit completed nuclear weapons or the nuclear components of weapons to be transferred to a foreign country or to get beyond the, custody of U. S. forces." He added: "We therefore have a right to assume that any program the President may have to share our arms with our allies will not violate this provision, unless a change in the law is requested by the President and approved by the Congress." Some members of Congress are inclined to shudder at the thought of giving to even the friendliest of nations custody and control of weapons with which they could start a nuclear war. From the very beginning, Eisenhower said, he has held the belief that the United States should not deny its allies what the potential enemy already has. "We do want allies to be treated as p a r t n e r s and allies," he said, "and not as junior members of a firm who are to be seen but not heard. "So I would think that it would be better, for the interests of the United States, lo make our law more liberal, as long as we classify our countries as those that are--we are confident . . . they'd stand by us and stand by u£ in time of trouble."
