FRIDAY, APRIL 10, 1953 BLTTHETILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACK FIVH GOP Committee Ready To Name Hall as Chief By JACK 1EELL WASHINGTON W)—The Republican National Committee appeared ready to ratify today the choice by President Eisenhower and congressional leaders of former Rep Leonard W. Hall of New York as its new chairman. Hall got unanimous approval ae a successor fur C. Wesley Roberts, who resigned, in an informal canvass yesterday of Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon and Senate and House leaders. The canvass was made by a GOP national subcommittee. The 52-year-old Hall, who served several terms as chairman of the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee before he quil Congress to win election as a New York surrogate judge, takes over a party described by some of its members as financially "broke" despite Us presidential election victory last fall. In a svvansonf? statement, Rob' erts predicted that the GOP will increase its slim margins in the Senate and House in the 1954 elec tions. ,_ The new administration, Roberts declared, "has been handicapped in taking over netual operative control of government as a conse- Travel too Fast? rs Think Sc brought the subfect before the Du- possibly be called emergencies." Dr. L. L. Porks said in the report of a survey.

Nevertheless, he added, "no man has ever taken command and done more in so short a space of time" as Eisenhower. Must Get Funds Sen. Taft oJ. Ohio, the Republican leader, said one of Hall's first jobs apparently will have to be to help get a fund raising campaign under way. The Ohio senator, one of those who approved Hall's selection, said he hopes the new chairman picks a Western man as his executive assistant. The name of Wayne Hood, Wisconsin state chairman, was mentioned by some other party members in this connection. Hall's election seemed likely to inspire a Democratic blast at his record of voting in Congress. The New Yorker traveled on Eisenhower's presidential campaign train and is reported generally in accord with the President's views on major issues. Democrats already were firing away at Republican claims that they are t r i m m i n g federal expenses, 'have stopped the drop in farm prices, are cleaning up subversives in the government and have taken strong steps in foreign policy in their 75 days in office. Republicans said they already have cut appropriation requests to congress 444 million dollars under former President Truman's estimates. But Sen. Sparkman (D-Ala) said this was just one of many fulsome claims which are made without any resemblance to the facts." Thinks Increase Coming iAiiuui, the 1352 Democulitic vice presidential nominee, said he believes that when Congress has completed its work on the budget, the GOP will have increased the total over Truman's estimates. In this connection, Sen. Ma gnu- son (D-Wash) pointed out that Gen. Browne!! was asking for nine million dollars more in funds than :he Justice Department has in the current year, although his request was seven million under Truman's estimates. The Democratic National Committee said in a statement that Taft himself had said the Republic?, ns were making slow progress, .hat the business men chosen for overnment posts have no experience in government, and that new program can't be put into effect, before July 1.
