TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10,19W BLYTHBV1LLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGESETBN 1956 Presidential Campaign May Be Longest in History EDITOR'S NOTE — This to the first of a series on what is taking place alonr the national poHt- kal front where both Republican and Democratic national headquarters already have plunged deep into the ftfht for control of the White House and Congress In the 1956 elections. . .By DON WHITEHEAD WASHINGTON (AP) — A full 13 months ahead of the 1956 elections, Republicans and Democrats are mobilizing for the great battle f or control of the White House and Congress. Not in recent political history has there been such an early surge of activity along the national political front. One pa rty worker commented: "A short president campaign in 1956? Don't you believe it. The campaign already is under way as far as we're concerned. TWs is going: to be one of the longest campaigns we've ever had.' 1 The business of choosing a candidate and waging a barnstorming campaign is months away—but the struggle between the parties already has the politicians maneuvering their troops in the field. L. Richard Guylay, publicity chief for the Republican National Committee, and Sam Brightman, who occupies a similar post in the Democratic national headquarters, are men who disagree on many things. But they agree on this point: the fight between the parties is developing far faster than it did in the last presidential election. Developed Late Four years ago. the early polit- iacl skirmish was pretty much confined to candidates jousting among themselves for their party's nomination—and these contests didn't develop to any great degree until the late winter and early spring of 1952. Once the candidates were nominated—Dwight Eisenhower by the Republicans and Adlal Stevenson by the Democrats —then the parties turned their guns full force against each other. But how both parties are starting early to establish issues, and their national headquarters are pushing programs to organize precinct workers who will get out the vote.

Cooper of Cooter. recently arrived in Bremerhaven, Germany to become a teacher in the Army's European dependents school system. Miss Cooper is one of 1,400 instructors assigned to teach the 30,000 American children in the elementary and high schools in Europe. She was graduated from the State University of New York in 1952. Democrats acknowledge privately 'is at a high level. Political School The Republicans already have held a "political school" for the 48 GOP state chairmen, discussing issues and techniques for getting out the vote in the '56 election. These state chairmen are arranging similar meetings in their home states for county leaders, and these meetings will be carried on down to the precinct level. On Sept. 29, more than 30,000 Republican women will begin ringing doorbells across the nation polling voters on how they vote and what they consider to be the big Issues in the campaign They plan to call at all the homes in one precinct of each county in the United States. "We think we know what the major issues will be," Guylay said, "but the poll will give us a good chance to find out what the people think about the issues—and what will influence their vote." The Democrats also plan to take a voter poll of their, own, and they will match the Republicans' "political school" with a meeting o fnational and state leaders to be held in Chicago Oct. 1, The man in charge of this meeting will be Niel Stabler, Michigan state chairman, who is credited with setting up a grass-roots organization which gave the Democrats a string of victories last November in Michigan. • Campaign literature, instructions to party workers, advice on how to argue the issues, and other material is flowing from both headquarters.
