FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER X, 1*W BLYTHEVILXE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE THREI GOP Goes Out on Limb; Gambling All on Ike By DON WHITEHEAD WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican party chiefs are taking *e big gamble. They are planning for the 1956 presidential campaign on the assumption .that President Eisenhower wiH agree to seek a second term. . . To unscramble a few metaphors, the GOP command ic out on a kmb — ready to sink or swim with their eggs in one basket. At Republican national headquar-r ter« they say very candidly that there is just the one basis lor all the preliminary campaign groundwork — and it is progressing rapidiy. L. Richard Quylay, GOP publicity chief, says: '"The national committee Is proceeding on the assumption that President Eisenhower wiH be the Republican candidate." After the recent meeting of GOP state chairmen in Denver, some party leaders weren't so sure. Eisenhower yarned them not to nail their flag so securely to one mast that if the ship sank, they couldn't rip it off and tie it to another. Hall IJBtened But GOP National Chairman Leonard Hall listened to everything the President had to say— and then announced he was more convinced than ever that Eisenhower would again head the ticket. Actually. Republican leaders are Ignoring Eisenhower's advice. They are nailing their flag securely to the Eisenhower mast while capitalize on his personal popularity and the theme of "peace and prosperity." Under these circumstances, it will place the Republicans on a fearfully embarrassing spot should Eisenhower not choose to run. Those who think he won't make a second race put up this argument: Eisenhower is now 64. He may want to turn the job over to a younger man and retire to his Gettysburg farm, where he can enjoj' the last years of his life. They also say Mrs. Eisenhower has had enough of the White House and doesn't want the President to shorten his life with another four years of the crushing burden of the presidency, Sense of Duty But on the otner side, they argue Eisenhower has a high sense ol duty and that his duty is to remain in the White House another four years to carry out the program he has begun. They argue Ike won't Jet the party down and that he has come to the point where he enjoys his job as well as the political game. In the midst o/ such uncertainty, the Republican chieis appear confident they know their man anc what he will do at the proper time. One of them said: "We think, we know our candidate — and the Democrats don't. This gives us an advantage in planning the campaign." Desk Work May Be Dull CHICAGO If I — Pat Moore, 20- year-old Cleveland secretary, may find it rather dull going back to her typewriter.
