Chapman Revercomb, Repub- CAMPAIGN (OonthMWd from Page » most Important as the campaign develops. • • • la between the major half-hour shows will be numerous five-min- programs and spot announcements. The idea is to give the voters some kind of a Republican radio-TV charge every day of the concentrated six-week campaign. The decision to concentrate on radio and television campaigning was made largely as a result of the closed circuit TV show on which the President spoke to 53 "Salute to Eisenhower" $100 a plate dinners in 53 cities on Jan. 20. The emotion and the enthusiasm raised by this stunt was as great is from a personal appearance, lays Hall. It was this reaction which convinced him that it would not be necessary for the.President to do any old-fashioned whistle' stopping. The idea for a "front-porch" presidential campaign waged from ihe President's home in Gettysburg is not being considered, says Hall. A large part of the credit for advance Republican planning for 1956 goes to Hall. Two days after the President had his heart attack, Hf.ll declared his belief that the. President would recover and be a candidate. • • * Practically everybody else considered that ridiculous at the tune, but Hall stuck to his guns — and made plans. Republican National Committee headquarters -in Washington already is operating at mid-campaign tempo. The staff has been increased. Office space has mushroomed into three annexes. Hall already has allocated budget, of $350,000 and has put eight field men in the farm belt to organize the farmers. As other issues arise during the remainder of this session of Congress, Hall intends to move in fast to support the President's position. "What we're trying to do is avoid the crises that always developed during the long campaigns of the past," says Hall. "We're rolling now. We're In the best shape we've been in for 25 years." Kilgore was serving a? chairman of the Senate Judiciary Commit tee and as a member of the Senate . Appropriations Committee the time of his death.
