Leader's Charge DENVER (AP) — The White House hit back yesterday at a Democratic governor's contention that an "ugly underworld in the Republican party" would take President Eisenhower "captive" if he were reelected. Murray Snyder, Eisenhower's assistant press secretary, replied to criticism of the President by Gov. George M. Leader of Pennsylvania in a San Francisco speech Wednesday night. Leader substituted for former President Truman at a $100 a plate Democratic dinner. "All I have to say is that the pinch-hitter struck out," Snyder told newsmen. The press secretary made the statement after saying that he had received a request for comment on Leader's talk. "Not Indispensable Man" Snyder had before him the New York Times' account of Leader's address. The governor was quoted as having said in his prepared text that Eisenhower is "not the nation's indispensable man ... not the best man for the country, not the best man to seek and keep the peace." "For Dwight Eisenhower ... is not a great President. He is not a leader. He reigns, but he does not govern. "Were he to win the office Again, carrying with him a Republican Congress, the hard and ugly underworld in the Republican party would again reveal its measure of control, again make the President and the nation their captive." "Ask Leader" Snyder was asked for comment on Leader's use of the word "underworld." He suggested that newsmen ask Leader about that, but then referred agaiu to the account of the governor's speech and noted that it said that an aide to Leader had explained that the governor's reference to the underworld "meant certain minority groups within the Republican party and was not to be construed in the usual sense." The President was looking for- ward to the arrival late today of a group of golf and bridge playing pals invited to his vacation headquarters for a long weekend of relaxation. Insomnia Sufferers Take Note LONDON Ml— Three British electronics engineers reported yesterday , the invention of a new-style teddy bear designed to put people to sleep.

Wl — James Kelly, who has been the target in a baseball-throwing concession for 40 years, got his the other night at the Craighead County Pair. St. Bernard's Hospital here said Kelly is recovering satisfactorily from concussion, a fractured nose find cuts and bruises. Said Kelly, who sticks his head through a hole in a canvas curtain, "I looked up when I should have looked down." Explained Norman Parker, one of the inventors: "Air is then pumped by an artificial lung In and out of the teddy bear at the rate of 10 to 12 breaths a minute, the normal breathing rate of an adult when asleep. "This slow, rhythmic breathing by the teddy bear aids the brain to slow down the user's breathing tate and also helps the body to relax." For adults who might feel silly cuddled up with a teddy bear, the invention also comes in the form of a pulsing pillow. Got Their Wish COLDWATER, Mich.
