r THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS • Ual Boyle jhe Peebles House h Divided Over Eisenhower and Stevenson BY HAL BOYLE HOMETOWN, U. S. A. (AP). The Peebles, like many an American family today, are a house divided. ; Wilbur, the country's most average citizen, and his wife, Trellis Mae, used to quarrel over only one thing—her ambition to own^ a mink coat. But that was before Wilbur Went to the Republican convention aid came home in favor of Gen. Elsenhower, and Trellis Mae attended the Democratic convention and returned an ardent rooter for Gov. Stevenson, ,Now they are separated by a new yawning chasm—party politics. * * * WILBUR AWOKE THE OTHER MORNING in a cramped position on the living room sofa, to which he had been exiled by Trellis Mae after he referred slightingly to Stevenson as "a Truman in short pints." ,Hls wife sat in his favorite chair studying the newspaper. "How about some breakfast, honey?" said Wilbur. "I'm starving." ;"Make it yourself, you Republican—you believe in individual enterprise," replied Trellis Mae. "And don't burn the toast. I have to catch up on the political news." • Wilbur meekly got up, showered, shaved, dressed, and fixed breakfast for two. Trellis Mae joined him at the table, put down tiie newspaper, and said: "Well, he's done it again!" Her husband went on morosely munching his toast. "I say, he's done it again!" said Trellis Mae more loudly. "Who?" said Wilbur, unable to resist the bait. "As if you didn't know. Ha, Ha, Ha! Stevenson—of course." '"Has he attacked that mess in Washington again?" "Don't be so funny," said Trellis Mae. "He says your pal Ike is up to his knees in a bucket of eels. Ha, Ha, Ha! What's the matter with Ike's campaign anyway? It's stalled." ;"Ike's just getting into gear," replied Wilbur stoutly. "He likes to plan his campaigns instead of going off half-cocked. When he really hits the Democrats it'll be another Normandy landing." '"AH I can say," remarked Trtl- lis Mae," is that right now he is approaching victory with the speed of erosion." * • * !"I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND YOU," said Wilbur, try- irig dignity. "Your father was a Republican, your grandfather was a I Republican, and you were a Republican until last month. You dpn't want to be a turncoat, do you.* "Look who's talking," answered his wife. "Who voted for Roosevelt three times? You! Who said w*ien he got out of the army he'd never vote for a man who wore a uniform? You!" '"That was before they nominated Ike," said Wilbur. "Can't a man change his mind,?" 1 "Can't a woman?" '"Sure, but Ike is a new broom. He's got what the country needs. "I ask you one thing—just one thing," he said. "What has Adlai Stevenson got that Ike doesn't have more of?" ."Me!" said Trellis Mae triumphantly. .
