TWJBSDAT, OCTOBER 90, 1909 (ABK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE TWENTY-ONB Ike's Illness Has Put GOP Chairman Hall on Spot By JAMEB MAR LOW Associated Press Newi Analy** WASHINGTON (AP) — The roof fell in on Leonard W. Hall when President Eisenhower suffered a heart attack. Before that, there was a rosy glow in the sky. Now he can't see what lies ahead. As chairman of the Republican National Committee, k's Hall's job to lay the foundations for a Republican victory in 1956. His counterpart Paul M. Builer, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, has the same kind of job for the opposition. It's a backbreaking 1 job for both men any time. But Hall's looked easier than Butler's—before the President fell ill Sept., 24. The Democrats have no sure- shot candidate for their party's nomination in their convention next summer, even though at the moment A d 1 a i Stevenson may seem to hold an edge. And before the convention is over the scramble among Democrats may bust the party wide open. In Good Position Hut Hall, a lifelong politician who at 55 is genial and almost bald, saw nothing like that in store for his party. On the contrary, in eary September, he was In a spot Butler and any other professional politician must have envied. To hear him talk, there were no storms ahead on his political lake. He Was confident Eisenhower would run again. If Eisenhower did, with his immense popularity, he seemed a year ahead of time to have much better than a 50-5(3 chance of winning. And if Eisenhower won, he might again, as in 1952, pull the whole party with him and give the Republicans control of Congress once more. The whole Republican party felt the way Hall did. Faces Tough Year Then on Sept. 24 the President was stricken. Now Hall merely, and not too confideitly, speaks about the possibility that Eisen- _ 102 AND STILL PITCHING—Bearded Ivan Vasilievich Zhizhin, 102-year-old retired Russian miner, wields a Gorodki bat in a park in KizH, H.S.S.R Gorodki is a popular Russian sport in which a big stick is hurled at a group of small sticks arranged m a geometric pattern.

So Hall, an ex-judge and seven times a congressman, faces a tough year, Just as tough as Butler's. This month, as if accepting the idea Eisenhower wouldn't run, Hall was saying the party would win by taking "Ike's philosophy, personality and the record of his administration." But trying to win on Eiseiv hower's record may not be enough, since the voters will have to make their own judgment on the Republican candidate, whoever he i: And who he may he is something Hall doesn't know now.

CAA Continues Investigation Of Crash of Playboy's Plane NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif, tf*, — Was millionaire Jq^l W. Thorne stunting, or was he desperately trying to fly out of trouble just before his plane plunged into an apartment building, costing his own and three other lives? Civil Aeronautics Administration inves- gators probed deeper yesterday for the answer. A baby whose family was celebrating her christening, an 18- year-old bride and Thorne perished in the fiery crash and explosion which devastated with bomblike fury two apartments of a six-unit building Monday night. The fourth victim, a 6-year-old boy, died of horrible burns in a hospital last night. He was one of the christening' party. Buzzed Residential Area Frightened residents reported the single-engine plane buzzed the residential area two or three times at what seemed like rooftop height just before the crash. Some thought the plane was in trouble as it roared back and forth in or just under a 700-foot ceiling. The CAA investigators, Laurence Lightbody and Bernard T. Naught, } took cognizance of these reports to' 241 but hunted for a more scientific | answer in the shattered fragments of Thome's plane. "Pieces of the aircraft along the flight path indicate it disintegrated in the air," Naught said. Disintegration could result from excessive speed or violent handling of the plane, such as stunting or the terrific stress of a sudden pullup at high speed, he said. "In my opinion, it would be inconceivable Thorne would be .stunting in the prevailing weather, in drizzling, overcast conditions," Naught said. Experienced Pilot "He was an experienced pilot j and flying on instruments," Light-' body pointed out. "It seems unlikely he would be attempting barrel rolls or other stunts under those conditions." . i Thorne, 40, whose life was filled with speed and violent escapades, took off on an instrument flight plan from nearby Lockheed Air | Terminal at 10:08 p.m. Monday,' bound for Las Vegas, Nev., where , he was maintaining residence.
