FAOE TWO BLTTHEV1LLB (ARKJ COUWER NEW! TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER «, 198B Ike Has Sound Political Reasons For Keeping Quiet on 1956 Plans By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON ,(AP) — President Eisenhower would deprive Republican politicians lot of yakkity-yak if he suddenly announced he'll run again in 1956. They've been talking, guessing, predicting, hoping for the better part of 1955 that he be a candidate. The end is not in sight. No wonder. Eisenhower is not only their best bet to win. He may be their only one. Vice President Nixon himself indicated as much last March. With the 1954 Republican congressional defeat then still fresh in mind, he declared: "The Republican party today is not strong enough 10 elect a president. We have to have a candidate strong enough lo elect the Republican party. That is why we won in 1952." Sen .Kerr of Oklahoma, one of the Democratic party's wits, after listening .to. the Republican clamor for Eisenhower, said: The Democrats are not nearly so afraid Eisenhower will run again as Republicans are he won't. Music In Oar Ears Republicans don't have to visit. Eisenhower and examine the presidential tea leaves to have an opinion for the press. Near and far they seem to keep a wet finger aloi't to tell which way the White House breeze blows. So far what they've said sounded like music in their own ears since Eisenhower has stated he wouldn't make up his mind until 1956 and then only after considering the condition of the world and his own health. Nixon, whose hope of retaining the vice presidency may depend on an Eisenhower victory next year, is the latest to come away from the President with opinions but not much solid information. After visiting Eisenhower in j Denver yesterday and telling re-j porters he had not discussed, politics with the President, Nixon caid: '-'Among people who know the President — and want him to run— 1 they are more optimistic than at any time since he was inaugurated that he will run again." Would Lose Influence Eisenhower, like other presidents before him, has some sound political reasons for keeping both parties guessing about his intentions. He'd lose a lot of his influence on Republicans in Congress if he said now he would not run •gain. And if he said this early he would run, the Democrats no doubt would spend between now and election time trying to whittle him down to frying size. Meanwhile, he needs all the influence and good will he can get to run the government.

Harrison called the board meeting and said he understood the meetings at Edison and Arlington were "more in the nature of pep meetings than anything else."

N Tv iii TT- if- j THI • nn i o Doubt In HIS Mmd 1ms lime! This happy gentleman has just taken title to his seventh motor car. And while he would probably have difficulty recalling all the different makes and models he has purchased through the years, there is one thing he knows with absolute certainty: He never Jell like this before when he took the keys and marie for the open road. For this is his first Cadillac! And what a glorious feeling it is to know he has chosen the "car of cars"! - Gone are the doubt... and the worry ... and the wonder. This time he knows he's right! And how quickly the evidence will assemble in support of his sentiment! First of all, there will be the eloquent testimony of the car itself—its magnificent performance ... its marvelous comfort and ride... and its incredible ease of steering and handling. And then, as he travels the boulevard, there will be those quick glances of approval from his fellow motor- ists to tell him that he is not alone in his judgment. And, finally, there will be that assembly of family and friends that awaits him at journey's end . . . offering final confirmation of the wisdom of his choice. * * * Of course, the man who takes title to a new Cadillac today enjoys the double satisfaction of having made the wisest possible choice at the wisest possible time. Because of Cadillac's increased year-end production, for instance, he will find that he can have surprisingly prompt delivery on his new Cadillac. And, as if this were not sufficient in itself, we are also in a position—because of our low inventory of used cars—to offer him a most generous allowance on his present automobile. Why not come in soon—and spend an hour at the wheel—and lee us acquaint you more fully with this unique opportunity? SULLIVAN-NELSON CHEVROLET CO. 301 Wilt Walnut Phone 3-4578
