(Herald ·Photo) TEMPO Nixon's Withdrawal * Farm Bill's Future ; 'Moral Responsibility' German Rearmament 'NEWSWEEK MAGAZESE said this week that President Eisenhower had suggested to Vice- President Richard M, Nixon that "he consider withdrawing as a candidate for re-election." In its current issue, Newsweek -says the President approached Nixon the day before he announced his own candidacy. "The President didn't ask Nixon to withdraw-only to consider it," the magazine states. "And the White House let it be known that Nixon ' could have the vice presidential ·nomination if he wanted it. The . circumstances indicated, however, that the .President, while reluctant to force Nixon's withdrawal, nevertheless wanted a free hand to choose his running mate--Nixon or somebody later on, when the political situa : clarified.""

Alert Herald Subscriber Uncovers The alertness and keen memory o f ' a Herald subscriber in Davenport, la., was credited yesterday with establishing the first major clue in the case of some 15 forged checks passed here Feb. 24 and 25. Local detectives-said the action--former Anderson resident tol-d of the Herald subscriber, brought to light the fact that the checks here were passed by a professional ring believed to be working on a large scale in many states. The situation was highlighted by the. receipt of a letter yesterday morning from the Davenport Police Dept., in which officials there said a Herald subscriber whose name was withheld, and former resident Anderson, brought to them a clipping of a story published last Friday giving a complete.' description of the checks and the two men who passed them here. According to the letter, the police a story concerning.a similar case which had appeared in a Davenport publication about a month ago. Authorities in that city checked the Anderson story and started checking with the Federal Buraeu of -Investigation. Subsequent checks on the procedures and. handwriting available indicated the forgeries on a Davenport plumbing firm were committed by the same as those here.
