MONDAY, OCTORBR 81, (AH*.)' COURIER PAGE THREB Lack of Real Issues Should Make 1956 Campaign Pretty Dull One Bf JAMWC MiUtLOW HiUicd PretB New* WASHINGTON (AP) — The 1956-presidential campaign will probably be pretty dull — •o far as real issues go — unless events change the picture before campaign time next summer. Both parties will do the usual: Talk about the differences between them. But year by year those differences have narrowed until now they are arguemntc more on details than on basic mues. Tlw Republicans, for example huve accepted — they'd be com- jnUting political suicide if they didn't — the major legislation o *he New Deal and "Pair Deal": Social security, minimum wages, collective bargaining, and so on. In some eases they have expended on them. In foreign affairs President Eisenhower and Secretary of Stat* Dulles have follower th* broad policy oif President Truman and Secretar yof State Acheson. Eisenhower, whether or not he himself runs upain, has set the tone for both parties in 1956. His moderation, in policies and personal dealings, made him look, before his heart attack, like a sure winner again. Further, a time of high prosperity does not call for bottt- rocking innovations. It's no wonder then that both parties seem to be preparing to present themselves to the voters in 1956 as "moderate." But campaign based on moderation hardly holds out promise of excitement or extremes. On Ike's Record With Eisenhower unlikely to ru his Republicans seem able to think of nothing but running on his record. And if any of the Democrats who so far look like candidates have big ideas they haven't said so. Their talk has been very mod- crate. For this reason the voters may again, as they have in the past two elections, find a lot of difficulty recognizing real differences between the parties. in 195, although they picked Eisenhower overwhelmingly, the voters gave his party control of Congress by a hair thin margin. And in 1954. when they put the Democrats in charge, it was by 'the same kind of margin. Yet, some of the issues in those two elections were more bitter and emotional than anything appearing so far on the 1956 horizon. Not on Issue In 1952 the Republicans banged at their rivals with the then un- ended Korean War and the charge of Communists-in-government-un- der-the-Democrjfts. IP 1954, with the war suspended, they trotted out the shopworn Communist theme again. They can hardly hope to run that one around the tract as a major issue again in 1956 unless somehow Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) can emerge from the political limbo ittto which his own Republicans threw him. Unless the V est. suffers disasters, foreign policy may not be much of an issue. The Democrats HOUSE OF ANTENNAE—It looks like the folks »t Round Hill mansion in South Dartmouth, Mass., have gone TV crazy. But actually, those aren't TV antennae at all.. They're being used by the Massachusetts Institute of Technolojjy'to develop long-range, point-to-point radio communication. The giant "corner array" antenna is beamed at Cedar Rapids. Iowa. MOO miles away. The dish antennae are for UHF transmission of voice signals. These new broadcast methods are being developed to supplement -presently overcrowded conventional transmission bands. Farmer Assessed $404 Fine For Over planting Wheat Crop OIL CITY, Pa. M—John Harmon didn't pny t bit of attention to gov- ( ernment agents who told him to| plant nine acres of wheat. He went ahead with plans to plant 24 acres. Now he's in trouble. The government has placed a Uen on his farm for $404.26, accusing him of violating regulaions restricting restricting his farm acreage. Harmon, 4C, a Venango County dairy farmer, said he won't pay. He added: "I have never had any part ot subsidy. I have my own way, I'll be darned if I think this allotment and subsidy business is right or American. "I have my own ideas about American rights.
