SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1958 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE GOP Strategists Differ on Method L?c"n°£Listed Of Picking Replacement for Ike By DON WHITEilEAD WASHINGTON (API — Already a division of opinion has developed among Republican strategists over the best method of choosing a presidential nominee in the event President Eisenhower doesn't run in 1956. Some GOP leaders have been discussing privately the possibility of trying to persuade the President — in case he intends to step aside — to indicate whom he would support for the nomination. The argument here is that unless Eisenhower makes such a move, the Republican party will be ripped apart by a bitter preconvemion fight between candidates seeking the nomination. They foresee the likelihood of another party-splitting scrap like the one in 1352 between Eisenhower and the late Sen. Robert A. Tail of Ohio. Some GOP leaders, as previously reported in this column, feel that a nod of approval from Eisenhower would have such political force that Pepsodent smile, a ready quip, an actor's perfection with tines, nor an ability to avoid issues, as qualifications for high office." He didn't say at whom this barb was aimed and politicians will have lo draw their own conclusions. But his call for an open primary would seem to foreclose any agreement among party chiefs that Eisenhower name the man he wants to receive the nomination. Appears Certain have been made. On the Democratic side, a contest is developing between supporters of Adlai Stevenson and Gov. Averell Harriman of New York even before either of them has announced he will be a candidate. And there is restless stirring among supporters of Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-Tenni. Among the Republicans, of course, there can be no open maneuvering as long as Eisenhower Thus it appears almost certain doesn't remove himself from 1 ' ' would-be OOP Opposed By Knowland But Sen. Knowland (R-Calif). Senate minority leader, has declared his opposition to any such preconvemion maneuvering. Knowland told a Republican Women's Club in Tacoma. Wash., Wednesday night that no one should be designated as "an heir-apparent" to Eisenhower. The senator said: ''The nation Record Number of Voters Eligible for State Primary For Pemiscot CARUTHERSVILLE — Two dozen couples received marriage licenses in the office ol James T. j Ahern, Pemiscot County's recorder | of deeds, during September. j They were issued to Hie follow-! ing: Eulas Abbott and Helen Mobley.

Issuance of poll tax receipts increased in 49 counties over last y™r and declined in 26 — but some of these latter were among the state's most populous. Generally, declines were reported in counties which polled a heavy vote against Faubus in the 1954 genera! election and increases in those which favored him. Pulaski and Sebastian counties showed the sharpest decreases with j the two counties together issuing 7.000 fewer poll tax receipts. Previous record eligible total for a statewide primary was in 1953 when 532.162 persons paid their poll taxes. Hayti; Paul T. Aaron and Bobbie Faye Dill, both of Wardell; R. B.
