'COURIER NEWS PAGE ELETEH 'ta's Heart Attack Rocks ll/S' Political Foundation By DON WHITEHEAD WASHINGTON (AP) — A man's heart beat stutters momentarily — and in those fleeting moments a whole political world is shaken to its foundations. That is what happened when President Eisenhower suffered a heart attack early Saturday at Denver. "•- -'—'— doesn't run. Nixon is reported by rir«t there was the stunning shock of the news hitting the capital with all its implications. But even in the outpouring of sympathy und prayers for the President's recovery, there was the realization th»t nothing In politics was quite trie same as it had been before th'ose fateful hours between midnight and dawn two days ago. "There was the reluctant acceptance by Republicans of the prob ability most of them had refused to admit before—that Eisenhower will not be the GOP presidential candidate next year.

Politics being what they OOP leaders to be highly popular with party organization men throughout the country. But no one claims Nixon can come close to matching Eisenhower's tremendous popularity and vote-getting appeal, or that he might be nominated without a challenge.

Lane, coming campaign from radically | college here, who is the conference's altered points of view. And this much at feast is apparent: •The Republicans no longer can count on Eisenhower as a candidate. Neither are they in a position la urge him to run again even U tile President should recover completely-from this attack. To do so wou^d put the GOP chiefs in the awkward position of asking Eisenhower to undertake a strenuous campaign which conceivably might piace more strain on his heart than il could stand. Up to this point, the Republican chiefs have made all their campaign plans on the assumption that Eisenhower would run. Now these plans must be recast in recognition of the alternative that he will not be available. And there is the likelihood the convention which was to have nominated Eisenhower without opposition will be a battleground. Nixon Strongest At the moment. Vice President Richard M. Nixon appears to be in the strongest position to bid for the nomination If Eisenhower general chairman. The conference is sponsored point- ly by the Arkansas institutions and the North Central Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges. Three questions in higher education will be studied at the conference, Dr. Lane said: 1. How can college freshmen be beter motivated toward intellectual achievement? 2.

Tuner of Arkansas State College, Jonesboro, is assitant LONDON W—The Russians say they are thinking about building a mammoth dam across the Bering Strait and warming the Arctic Ocean with Pacific waters pumped across by atomic power. Alexander Markin, a member of the Soviet Academy of Sciences, said over the Moscow radio this would transform the frozen northern ports of Asia, North America and Europe into habitable areas with a temperate climate. Markin didn't mention the floods it might cause along more souther- ly coast* by melting the polar ice cap. The Bering Strait between Alaska and Siberia is 55 miles wide. Markin said Soviet engineers visualize damming It arid then using hundreds of giant pumps powered by an atomic power station to pump Pacific water into the polar sea. "This would produce an artificial warm current approximately equal in volume to that of the Gulf Stream," Markin said.
