MONDAY, OCTOBER 34, 19M BtYTHfTlLL* (ARK.) COUBIER NEWS PACK THREE Latest Report on Ike Leaves GOP Up a Tree By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican party and its would-be presidents are up a tree until Jan. 1 unless before then President Eisenhower says he won't run again. Over the weekend, Dr. Paul Dudley White, the Boston Heart specialist directing Eisenhower's convalescence, said it can't be determined for another two or three months whether his patient has fully recovered. Bwt a full recovery doesn't mean Eisenhower will try for re-electfor in 1956. It would seem unlikely, bavins had one serious heart ta- tack, that he would seelf another four years in the White House It'* generally assumed Eisenhower won't run. Yet, until he says something one way or the other the Republican hopefuls who would like to fill his shoes someday can hardly publicly proclaim their candidacy. That means time lost in building their fences and lining up delegates ,to nyct summer's Republican convention. Switch of Plans At the same time the Republican .National Committee, which has to plan for the convention, will have to switch some of it: plans and much of its thinking if Eisenhower doesn't run. Until Eisenhower's heart attack in September, the Republicans were building their hopes around Eisenhower's running. He was their main hope of winning. Apparently he still is, if not person at least by proxy. Judging from their current statements. Republicans seem to think terms of running on Eisenhower's record if he himself can't run. Goodwin Knight, California's Republican governor and himself a possible candidate for president, acknowledged last night in the Meet the Press • TV program there's been a lot of confusion in Republican ranks. Must Mark Time So until Eisenhower finally says yes or no about running again, the party and its still unannounced candidates must mark time and gnaw their fingernails. They're all in a state of suspension now. Eisenhower knows this. And he has probably made up his mind not to run. But saying so is a matter of timing. His energies have been so restricted by his doctors he has had little time, if any, for 'political discussions. He'R need time to talk things over with his advisers and the party's top politicians because of the effect of his announcement-r- Jf it's not to --un—on his party and its candidates. The big gulf that separates the thinking of some of the top Republicans, on both foreign and mestic problems, could split the party wide open before the convention unless some way is found to prevent a split. Eisenhower may try to find that way before stepping out of the picture. For that reason, in order "to have time for reflection and consultation, he may wait until January or early February before announcing his decision.

I'/Pt—A school man said today that a three-year survey convinced him that, contrary to popular belief, southpaws get that way in their first few months of life. "Left-handed ness positively is not inherited, us most people think," said H M. Wiley, president of Wheeler County, Tex., School Board. Wiley has interviewed 17,662 pupils in the schools of Amarillo and other Texas cities. He says left-handedness rises during war and depression years because "times of tension bring neglect in the training of children." "Mothers should begin teaching right-handedness from the day a baby can grasp a toy." It's A Handicap A southpaw himself, Wiley says he hopes to reduce left-handedness because it "handicaps a person throughout life." "That's because we live in a right- handed culture — tools, machinery, instrument boards, scissors, pencil Bladder'Weakness' If worried by "Bladder Weakness" [Oettinc Up NlRhts (too frequent, burning <"• Itching urlncitlon) or Strong.

When he began his survey, he was insured that left-handedness is covered by Mendel's laws of inheritance and remains fixed at 5 per cent—a. percentage, established some 40 years ago in surveys by psychologist June Etta Downey. But, he said, he found that 1,654 persons, or 9 per cent of those he surveyed, are left-handed: He also found that 562 persons born from 1922 to 1928 in the group are left- handed. . "Our country never had a more tranquil period than this period/ he said. "Parents gave their babies more ana aeuer attention then." Of the 297 born during the peak depression year of 1932, 12 per cent, were left-handed, he said.

Water is free, yet someone has fixed a clolar and cents value on nature's unpriceable Rift. By what right? Go out into the country and you'll find the farmer getting all (he water he wants, merely for the effort of digging a well and working a pump. He gets no water bill. Go up into the unspoiled mountains, dip your cup in a bubbling spring and drink your fill. Bring home a few barrels full. No one will impose any charge for what you take. Go down to the nearest river bank. Fill as many buckets as you can haul away. You won't have to pay a cent for their contents. Or the next time it rains, put out tubs and basins. Or do as they do in Bermuda: make your entire roof a collecting system leading to a cistern. No meter will register payments due. But ask the farmer what it cost to dig his well and how much energy is consumed in operating it. Figure the expense ol your trip to the mountains, not forgetting the price of the barrels. Compute the value—of the time consumed in hauling river water, adding the doctor's bills in case you fail to boil it before using. And compare the amount of water you obtain with the cost of installing and mtaintaining a Bermuda-type roof collection system. Waer is free to all. But it isn't always available whore people want it in a condition safe for them to use. It's the water works' job to lake over the task of collecting water, transporting water and making sure tha he waer delivered is safe for human consumpion and suitable for human use, 21 hours a day, .'ih'.i days a year. And that's what you pay for when you pay jour water bill. Blytheville Water Co.
