(ARK.) COTJRIER NEWT im>NESDAY, rBBRUARY IS, 1956- Sen. Aikn Pledges Grass Roots Fight For Agri Program By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Aiken (R-Vt) said today Republicans will carry "to the grass roots" a fight for the Eisenhower administration's version of a new farm bill. ' + "Some of us are determined that we won't make the same mistakes Republicans did in the 1948 campaign by ignoring partisan Democratic attacks," said Aiken, senior Republican on the Senate Agriculture Committee. "The action this time will be in deeds as well as words."

Senate debate is scheduled to start next week. Two developments indicated increased GOP stress on farm issues: 1, Secretary of Agriculture Benson, in a Lincoln Day speech at St. Paul, Minn., assailed some Democrats by name and accused them of trying to block helpful farm legislation this election year. 2. Senate and House Republican campaign committees announced "an aggressive program of public education" through the farm belt by newspapers, radio programs and other media. "If the soil bank bill is blocked or crippled in Congress this time, the voters and the farmers will know all about it," Aiken said in an interview. In the 1948 campaign, Aiken said "President Truman and top Democratic campaigners repeatedly charged that a Republican-controlled Congress had prevented grain storage." Aiken maintains this was not so, but he added: Criticized Humphrey "They succeeded in pushing down grain prices ahead of election and gathering in thousands of rural votes. The Republicans failed wer these false p' ans olc.'Icvap ms a ONt Benson last night criticized Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn), an opponent of many administration farm moves, and Adlai E. Stevenson, an active candidate for the Demo- cvratic presidential nominatoin which he won in 1952. Declaring that Stevenson now supports rigid price supports after opposing them earlier, Benson said: "That, of course, was before Hubert Humphrey explained to him the political facts of life about Minnesota's Democratic presidential primary. You don't play on Hubert's private course if you shoot under 90." Humphrey has been urging price supports at 9C per cent of parity. 14.00-18.00 largelj-; culls 8.-12.0. mony.

But he told a news conference a week ago today: "I think I will probably trust my own feelings more than I will the doctors' report." j Much Jubilation ' Nevertheless, the medical appraisal was a cause for much jubilation among political support. ers who have been predicting Els- enhower will bid for another four years in the white House if he Is physically able. Sen. Carlson (R-Kan), one of the original Eisenhower - for - presi. dent boosters; summed it up in saying: "It's the best news the people of the United States and the worlj have had since the President was stricken. This gives added hope and assurance he will serve for another four years." Adlai E. Stevenson, Eisenhower's opponent in 1952,. said in S*. •attic—that "like air Anrerteans I am of course delighted at the favorable report ..." At the outset of the physicians' news conference, a 11 e n d'e d by about 100 newsmen, Maj. Gen. jient in which the six doctors At Glared Eisenhower "has made a Howard M. Snyder read a state- «oo«J recovery." Bnyder is Eiscn-l bower's personal physician. "Believe He Can" The first question put to Snyder wai whether, Eisenhower could serve "another four years in the White House without any damage to himself." Snyder -eplied: "We believe he can serve four or five years or longer in a very active position of great responsibility." Questioning brought out that Snyder was talking about the presidency. Then the same question was put to White, who has been chief consultant on Eisenhower's case. White went further than Snyder had, saying: "After, weighing very carefully all the available evidence, including our, own experience, and fully aware of the hazards and uncertainties, we believe that radically the chances are that the President should be able to carry on an active life satisfactorily for another 5"to 10 years." "But the choice is his, not ours," Dr. White added. ' Actually, of course, Eisenhower could only serve another four years after completing the remaining 11 months and 5 days~ol ms present term. The Constitution now limits any president to two terms. The phrase ''the chances are' dropped by White from his "5 to 10 years" statement when a reporter said it suggested an element of doubt, and asked whether the doctor meant it to do so. White said the assertion about *M "haaards and uncertalntiw" of » second term made the other phrtM unnecessary. "Very Good Health" Snyder described Eisenhower M in "very good health" now, but h« added that just before the heart attack the president "wa» In better physical condition than I had known him to be in 10 years." "Yet he had a cardiac accident," Snyder said, "We don't know that he won't have another cardiac accident. We don't know that I won't have one tomorrow, although I am feeling pretty fit today. And so It goes." Eisenhower returned on Jan. * to what he termed "the full duty of the presidency." White said he «»d his colleagues concluded Eisenhower is physically able to serve another term on the basis of "what we have seen of the job and th« way he has carried on during th» last five weeks." Time and again White refused to say specifically whether he thinks Eisenhower should run again. But he did say there is no medical reason why he can't. And he said he would vote for him if he doel run. Ts for wheUSIr there would t* any liniitation on the type of reelection campaign Eisenhower could conduct, White called that a political matter on which the President would have to decide.
