PAClTirO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, AUGUST SI, 1954 Republicans Grab Ike's Coattails in Bid For Congress; GOP Labor Record Hit Ikt's Appeal May Be Brought Into Critical Campaigns CINCINNATI (AP) — Republican party leaders grabbed President Eisenhower's political coattails firmly today in an effort to translate the I-like-Ike appeal of 1952 into congressional victories at the polls in November. If an apparent majority of members attending the GOP National Committee workshop sessions here have their way, the Eisenhower personality may be pumped into nearly every critical campaign area in the country by on-the-spot and television appearances and by radio appeals. Hep. Richard Simpson of Pennsylvania, .chairman of the Repub- 1 i c a n Congressional Campaign Committee, told a news conference yesterday Eisenhower is going to be more active in this nonpresi- dential-year battle for control of Congress than any president in the last 30 years. Much Influence While there was doubt Eisenhower would .attempt to match the whistle-stopping activities of Democratic former President Truman in 1950, Simpson insisted that "before this campaign is over, by •way of personal appearance, television and radio, the President will have done more to influence the election than- any president has done in the last 30 years." • "Beyond any question," Simpson said, "as the President considers i the picture, his actions between now and the election will reflect the realization that he must have a Republican-controlled House and Senate." The general reaction among National Committee members was one of hope that Eisenhower would put on the kind of vigorous, personal campaign that Simpson outlined: Simpson said Eisenhower can be Russians Stage friendship Party MOSCOW (£>)—A big Soviet-Indian friendship, feast was staged at Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre last night. The occasion was the opening performance by a group of Indian dancers making a- goodwill tour of the Soviet Union. Deputy Premiers Nikolai Bulgan- in and Lazar M. Kaganovich headed a large Soviet government-delegation in the boxes, and most of the foreign diplomatic corps was on hand. Famed Russian dancer Igor Moi- sdyev said in a speech: "Our doors as well as our hearts are open wide to our Indian" friends." The orchestra played the Indian and Soviet national anthems. The theatre was decorated with both countries' flags. Flagpole Sitter Is Determined DETROIT (ff) —Richard "Dixie" Blandy of Dayton, Ohio, calmly shifted from one foot to another to-, day atop a 50 foot flagpole at the Michigan State Fairgrounds. Blandy, 52, a former flagpole painter, climbed up on the pole yesterday. He stands on a small two feet square platform and says he will not come down for at least eight days. He was hired to publicize the state fair which opens Friday. "I'll stay on top of the pole until my feet swell so badly I can't take it any more," Blandy says, "then I'll come down and go to a hospital for treatment."

Everett Dirksen of Illinois, chairman of the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, said in an interview that a "special effort" will be made there to save the seat occupied by Republican Sen. John Sherman Cooper, who is opposed by Democratic former Vice President Alben Barkley. Personal Appearance Sought State Chairman John Feikens said Michigan Republicans still are counting heavily on a personal appearance by Eisenhower in their state to help Republican Sen. Homer Feerguson in his battle for re-election. Dirksen said he thinks the Republicans may pick up five Senate seats. They now have 48, to 47 Democratic and 1 independent. Simpson said he is shooting for a net GOP gain of 20 in the House, where the lineup stands at 218 Republicans, 213 Democrats, 1 independent and 3 vacancies. Although he declined to pinpoint the races, Dirksen said the five Republican Senate gains might come from New Mexico, Montana, { Delaware, Ohio, Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa. Simpson predicted Republican House gains in some of these states, as well as in Pennsylvania, i New Jersey, Idaho, California and Kansas. Stevenson Raps Administration For Failure on T-H Promise CHICAGO (AP) — Rapping the Eisenhower adminis tration for its labor-management record, Adlai E. Stevenson said yesterday a Republican campaign promise to revise the Taft-Hartley Act was not kept. For the Eisenhower administration, he said, this has been a year of "futility, or worse," in meeting problems of labor-management relationship. "Politics dropped to a new low in connection with the revising of the Taft-Hartley Act following the Republicans' great promises of a change, the 1952 Democratic presidential nominee said. Addressing some 3,500 delegates at the 25th convention of the AFL International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Stevenson said: "The Republican candidate in that campaign (Eisenhower) said what he called 'union-busting provisions' should be removed. They haven't been. Consider the series of events in which the White House produced some reasonable proposals, then withdrew them under such obvious pressure that labor's sole Cabinet representative (Martin Durkin) resigned in protest." NLRB Criticized Stevenson extended his criticism :o include the National Labor Rela- ions Board, saying that Eisenhower had appointed three men who are representative of management and that one, he said, has described himself as a "union buster." Stevenson said they were interpreting the labor laws to destroy advantages which he said had been given to unions during previous Democratic aOministra- ;ions. He said the rules restraining employer interference in union organizing campaigns and representation elections have been changed to permit the employer "to throw his full weight against an organiz- WOMEN WANT TO KNOW Is something wrong -with our policies ... or our personalities?

Stevenson told the electrical workers there will be no depression within the next year because the American people will compel the administration to prevent it.
