FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER SO, 1981 BLTTHEVILIJ! (ARK.)' COURIER NEWg PAGETHKM •ECOND PLACE FLOAT — This elaborate float prepared by the Band parents Club got a second place award in yesterday's National Cotton Picking Contest parade. "King Cotton, This Is Your Life," was the title of the float. (Courier News Photo) Even If He Doesn't Run: Ike Will Be tke Big Man In Picking a Candidate By DON WH1TEHEAD WASHINGTON (AP) — Even though he doesn't run again, President Eisenhower will be in a position to dominate the Republican convention next year and perhaps handpick the GOP presidential nominee, if he so chooses. As matters now stand, a candidate seeking the Repu'uiican nomination with Eisenhower's opposition would be tilting hopelessly with windmills. But the man given in the dark. In all the confusion, there are some certainties: The Republicans Will depend on Elsenhower in the 1956 campaign in one way or an- the nod by the President would! other. If they can't have the man have an advantage so great that! himself as their candidate, then it would unassailable. In the weeks ahead, assuming the President has a normal recovery as it appears he will, the professional politicians will be watching to. see: 1. What Elsenhower's decision will be on running again. 2. If he doesn't run, whom will he support as the man to carry on the program he has launched. Eisenhower's close friends in Denver say the best bet is the President will finish out his term and then retire to his Gettysburg farm, making himself available as an "elder statesman." Still Hopeful But some Republican leaders still ere hopeful the President will run, and they point to opinions by heart specialists that after his convalescence he should be able to live a normal life. The Haw in these hopes is that no one can say the life of a President — with the tremendous pressures involved — is ii "normal life." The Republican: optimism about Eisenhower running again may well be n case of whistling they'll run on his record, program and policies. Nixon Mentioned But this means coming up with a nominee who supports the Eisenhower policies and who Is supported in turn .by Eisenhower. Already [ the names of Vice President Richard Nixon (age 42), Secretary of the Treasury George Humphrey (65), Milton Eisenhower, the President's brother (56), Gov. Goodwin Knight of California (58) and others are being mentioned as possible candidates. The President chose Nixon as Ills running mate in 1952. He gave Nixon a place In the inner councils of the executive branch of govern- ment which enhanced his prestige and gave him valuable administrative experience. But, when Eisenhower chose Nixon as his running mate, did he intend that Nixon should be the next GOP candidate? Eisenhower hasn't said as much and until he does, the matter remains in doubt The Wilson Co-Operative Club will meet at the club house, Oct. 6, for the first meeting of the year.
