(AP) — AFL-CIp political strategists have decided that "the Republicans will have an edge" m the 1956 presidential race regardless of whether President Eisenhower decides to run again. — * This view ic contained in an analysis of the political situation submitted confidentially to the 29- member AFL-CIO Executive Council during its winter session here by AFL-CIO political codirectors James L. McDevitt and Jack Kroll. A major reason for this appraisal is that Eisenhower's recommendation for Increased spending for schools, housing, social security, Commodity And Stocfc Markets-^ New York Cotton Mar 3545 .3555 3543 May 3479 3489 3472 Tuly 3365 3384 3365 Oct 3178 3194 3176 New Orleans Cotton Mar 3555 3555 3555 May 3481 3486 3479 July 3372 3383 3370 Dot 3181 3189 3116 Chicago Wheat Mar .... 216'A 216% May ....

Chris Lyles. Burial was in Mt. Zion Cemetery with German Funeral Home in charge She died Saturday following a lengthy illness. Born in Hardln County, Term., Mrs. Stuart and her family had made their home in Steele for the past 33 years. Her husband, J. C. Stuart, is a retired farmer. Other survivors include three sone, John Stuart of Maiden, Carl Stuart of Detroit and Pete Stuart of Steele: four daughters, Mrs. Myrtle Mullins and Mrs. Lola Kinningham of Steele, Mrs. Tola Sandery- son of Maiden, and Mrs. Jewel'Stur- divant of Rutherford, Tenn.: 15 grandchildren and 80 great grand- Most Forceful The conclusion is reached that the decline in farm prices is "the most forceful" domestic issue left to the Democrats. , "Although it is impossible to] evaluate the presidential election | until there is an announcement of Eisenhower's intention," the report says, "the Republicans will have an edge in the race. "This will result from a shift in the party character to provide more appeal for city voters and from their control of communications." The view is expressed that Eisenhower's announcement of his political intentions is "being delayed" for two reasons: "1. Further shorten the campaign time to give the greatest possible advantage to a blitz campaign into which large financial resources could be poured and in which the full advantage of the one-party press, radio and television could be mobilized. "2. Solidify the hold of the Eisenhower-Dewey wing on the Republican party by delaying the organization of the anti-Eisenhower forces around any single candidate." The view been children. Pallbearers .were Herbert Poteet, Prank Collins, Fred Nichols, Robert Nicholas, Vinson Potts and Harold T. Haygood. • s Damron Infant Services Today Services -for Tommy Lynn Damron, 3-month^old son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Damron, formerly of Leachville, were conducted at 2 p.m. today in New Hope Assembly of God Church by the Rev.

As a special' bipartisan committee moved into its third day of public hearings, Chairman George (D-Ga) said a decision will have to be made on whether to go back to the Senate for greater powers. George said the committee will decide after It completes its present hearing. This was limited by the Senate to a determination of whether an attempt was made improperly to influence Case's vote on a bill to exempt natural gas producers from federal controls. Case voted against the bill, which the Senate passed 53-38. While George said he personally isn't in favor of the committee's expanding its probe, he adde'~ that "some statements might be made that will cause us to continue the hearings for a few days." Veto Urged Elmer patman, Austin, Tex., lawyer employed by the Superior Oil Co. of California, testified Saturday that-he gave the money to Neff in a hotel room here in mid- January.

He urged "all reasonable speed" in carrying out the court's decision. Harriman said the U. 8. attorney general "must take action in supporting federal law and in bringing to justice violators of the federal law." Referring to mob violence that followed admission by court order of a Negro woman to the University of Alabama, Harriman said, "I haven't seen the (federal) activity which I think the situation demands." "Law of Land" Kefauver's most recent statement, on the segregation issue came to a news conference Friday at St. Paul, Minn. He said: "The ruling of the Supreme Court is the law of the land.

Saturday rfight's Lincoln Day dinners found Republican orators comparing Eisenhower with the first Republi9an President. Postmaster General Arthur Summerfield said at Detroit that Eisenhower is "the greatest President since Abraham Lincoln." At Springfield, HI., Charman Hall saw "remarkable parallels" between the two. The GOP speakers also hailed the record of the Eisenhower administration, summerfield said, "We have reduced Communist aggression to bluster an empty verbiage." Secretary of Labor Mitchell said at Akron, Ohio: "The drift toward massive government . . • has been halted."

Keck swore he did not know of the* contribution to Case's campaign 'until after Case told the Senate about it Feb. 3. Case said then he had decided to vote against the gas bill because of the circumstances umier which the $2,500 was offered to him. A utility group which opposed the bill urged, meanwhile, that President Eisenhower veto it "in the public Interest." The Council of Local Gas Companies said the bill was driven through the Senate "in unseemly haste." Sen. Douglas (D-I11), who led the fight against the gas bill, said the special committee's probe has only scratched the suface of what he called "enormous amounts" spent to influence public opinion on the measure.

That looks like the next step in the complicated legal battle between the commission and Southland Racing Corp. Chancellor W. Leon Smith signed a formal order Saturday directing the commission to Issue a dog racing permit to Southland within 20 days. Atty. Gen. Tom Gentry, representing the commission, said he would appeal on grounds that the commission has authority to turn down any application if it thinks the permit would not be "In the best interest of the state." An appeal would delay the issuance of a permit until the state Supreme Court hands down a decision. Peterson Said In Line For CAB Position OMAHA Hi — The World-Herald today quoted a "high Republican source" as saying Federal Civil Defense Administrator Val Peterson '' almost certainly'' will be named chairman of the Civil Aeronautics Board. The former Nebraska governor has been rumored as a possible nominee to replace Boss Rizley, board chairman, who was nominated Friday by President Eisenhower to be a federal district judge in Oklahoma. The World-Herald quoted Peterson as saying all he knew about the possibility of going to CAB was what he had read in the newspapers. He said, though, he had rejected several weeks ago a position outside the government that would have paid him considerably more than his present $17,000 salary. The CAB post pays $15,000.
