Jackson Went Too Far In Election Petition Mayor E. R. Jackson merely went too far in leveling accusations at the conduct of the municipal election which apparently cost him his job as the city's chief executive. His charges, in a petition to the County Election Commission, that the election was illegal, unfair and fraudulent must have come aa a shocker to many citizens. As a matter of fact, this newspaper already had prepared a salutatory editorial aimed al showing what a good job the Election Commission and its Chairman, Jesse Taylor, have been doing in the past. Jackson's petition for a recount of votes, which the Commission granted hivn, simply made irreponsihle charges. \Ve particularly feel that the charge that many election clerks and judges were unfair and biased in their counting- and administration of their boxes was more fiction than fact. An examination of the names of men used as clerks and judges reveals that many are among the business,-social civic and religious leaders of the city. A check of the names shows that various men who have headed the city's largest fundraising campaigns for charitable purposes and youth work served. Jackson only had to petition for a recount, as we understand it. It. was unnecessary, from a legal standpoint, for him to go so far as to point an accusing finger at practically every one who had anything to do with the election. And it is dificult to see how these charges will lie anything but damaging to any other political aspirations he might have in the future. Future Grows Clearer With President Eisenhower's move back from Denver, some of the uncertainty that, has beclouded his future since the falcl'ul heart attack of Sept. 21 has begun to disappear. Firm dates now dot his calendar. Most of the time in November and December he will live and work at his farm in Gettysburg, except for brief trips for special meetings at the White House. Of greater interest is the program that seems to be shaping up for him after Jan. 1, when he is expected to resume living in Washington. Reports from the capital have it that, some time between Jan. 20 and Feb. 8 the President will decide and make known whether or not he will run for a second term. This assumes you will note, that'tie has not yet made up his mind and perhaps is not trying to at this staff*. Men in Mr. Eisenhower's official entourage knock down tvery itory which suggests he has decided. Roscoe Drummond, who writes in both the New York Herald Tribune and the Christian Science Monitor, recently said flatly that he knows two members of the President's family who believe he is still weighing the decision or deferring it. There is considerable feeling that Mr. Eisenhower is holding off until the doctors can tell him how complete his recovery may be. That time will be the latter part of January. By that time. too. he will have been back in the White House long enough to get some idea how effectively he can perform his official duties under the restricted regimen the doctors will prescribe for him. He will then be able fairly to consult his conscience on the slate of his health and the state of the world, as Drummond said, and determine his course. These reports must give pause to the politicians and others who quickly concluded the President would make a snap decision not to run. The weight of seasoned opinion still is that he will eventually take himself out of the 1956 race. But recent events surely dictate caution. In his misfortune Mr. Eisenhower learned anew, with greater force than ever, how highly the common citizens of America and the free world prize him as leader. If he really can make a full recovery, this fresh knowledge might bear heavily on his vital choice to run or not to run. Hot-Rodding for Grub One of the marks of the boom is that stores of many kinds are getting bigger and bigger. Food retailers particularly are reported to be going in for super supermarkets. They're talking of the day when the stores will be so huge that shoppers will need motorized carls, Iraffic lights and maps to get around. Of course if it comes to this, a market traffic patrol is sure to follow. One can almost hear the call coming in over the patrol radio: "Cart 32! Cart 32! Proceed immediately to the intersection of Aisles 6 and 12. There's been a collision between two shoppers' carts. The aisle is littered with turnips and traffic is backed up to the breakfast food section." Progress is indeed a wonderful thing, but every forward step seems to bring new problems to replace the old. When they start requiring drivers' licenses for shopping carts, that'll be the time to start hunting again for the little corner grocer. VIEWS OF OTHERS Election Academics Dr. George Gallup, for light summer entertainment, polled the public JLS to what would happen if the two greatest, vote getters of all lime, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Franklin D. Roosevelt —were to run against each other for the presidential nomination. Results showed 52 per cent for Roosevelt and 43 per cent for Eisenhower, with five per cent unable to make up thmr minds. Democrats favored FDR by a margin of 85 to 15, Republicans favored Ike 83 to 17. while Independents gave Eisenhower an edge of 52 to 48. That's interesting, even if meaningless, for the presidency is, as the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently pointed out, the biggest gamble in American poHtics. The way the electoral college system operates creates .such oddities in the workings of democracy that Minnesota's Democratic Senator Humphrey has introduced a bill for its abolition. In 1952, when relatively few vote'rs in Mississippi went to the polls, that state got one electoral vote for each 36,000 balJoLs cast. But in Minnesota, where voting was heavier, each electoral vote repre.sented 125,000 votes. The Mississippi planter was something like three times as Influential as the Minnesota farmer, a consideration Gallup questioning hardly could have taken into consideration. A further look at the results of 1952 voting shows Adlai Stevenson got one electoral vote for every 306,346 votes cast for him, while Eisenhower got one for every 76,764 votes. A bill is before Congress, sponsored by Senators Kefauver of Tennessee and Daniel of Texas, proposing an amendment to the constitution by which each state's electoral vote would be divided In direct proportion to the popular vote. Still Another bill, sponsored by South Dakota's Senator Mundt, would break down naming of electors to congressional districts. It adds up simply to the further fact that the Gallup results are even more academic than appeared.—High Point (N.C.) Enterprise. SO THEY SAY Vehicular exhausts represent the most common Universal and probably greatest source of emitting known cancer-producing materials Into the atmosphere In certain ureas.—Dr. Paul Kotin, university of Southern California school of Medicine, > symposium on lung cancer, Double Trouble Peter Idson's Washington Column — Press Corps Sees Nixon-Herter, Adlai-Estes on Election Tickets WASHINGTON —(NEA)— Eighty-eight per cent of the Washington correspondents believe President Eisenhower will not be a candidate for re-election. Forty-seven per cent of the newsmen believe that the Republicans cannot win the election if Ike isn't the candidate. But a 4fi per cent believe the GOP can win even f Ike doesn't run. Seven per cent won't hazard a guess on this point. Seventy per cent of the correspondents now believe U.S. Chief Justice Earl Warren of California will not consent to become a candidate even if Eisenhower bows out. Twenty-four per cent think War-, ren will run. Six per cent are I undecided. I But in another relatively close j vote on a key question, 52 per cent' of the correspondents believe thej GOP National Convention will not nominate Vice President Richard M. Nixon to head flhe ticket if Ike doesn't run. Thirty-eight, per cent believe the convention will nominate Nixon. Ten per cent express no opinion. If the Washington press and radio corps were naming the likeliest 1956 candidates today, the tickets would be: Democrats — Gov. Adlaie E. Stevenson and Sen. Estes Kefauv-i er. Republicans—Vice President; Richard M. Nixon and Gov. ChrisU-i an A. Herter of Massachusetts. [ These are the highlights of a | post-card survey Just made byi NEA Service for this column The ( poll was compiled one year ahead' of Election Day, 1956. and on the eve or President Eisenhower's return to Washington from Denver. In all. 1065 daily newspaper. magazine, radio and television correspondents accredited to the Congressional press galleries were polled. Three hundred and thirty j answered the six top political questions put to them. A 30 per cent reply is considered a good return for a fair cross section on how reporters close to the situation size up today's trends. While the newsmen had definite! yes-or-no opinions on the main political currents, they were allj over the lot in naming their first, second and third choices for the likeliest presidential and vice- presidential candidates. The only one who showed up with a clear majority lead was Gov-j ernor Stevenson. He received 88 per cent first-choice votes, nine per cent second choice and two per, cent third choice. ' In second place, but not even 1 close to Stevenson's total, was) Gov. Averell Harrirmin of New York. He got five per cent first- choice, 50 per cent .second-choice and 23 per cent third. Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennesset- ran third with three per cent first-choice, 23 per cent second-choice and 30 per cent third. Gov. Frank J. Lausche of Ohio ran a poor fourth with only two votes to head the tickef. He sot so ven per cant as second-choice candidate and 15 per cent third choice. Fourteen other Democrats—too many to name here—were suggested for the Presidency. But none got more than a few scattered votes. For the Democratic vice-presidential nomination, Sen. Kefauver came out ahnd with 34 per cent first-choice votes. Gov. Frank G Clement oi Tennessee was -second j Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD By KKSKINE JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD —(NEA)— Exclusively Yours: Edmund Purdoni and Linda Christian, who have been making headlines together, are looking for a co-starring picture.

Vic Mature is in Dutch with British news scribes after flying to New York "for a shower bath" and halting London production on "Safari.',' One of them brands him as "Hollywood's most spoiled and exasperated actor." Vic likes his headlines, but spoiled and exasperated he isn't. Frank Sinatra's departure from Boothbay Harbor, Me., after he walked out of the movie ''Carousel," it now can be told, was "just like gangster movie stuff" to the driver of his "get-away" car.

I stopped and one of the men jumped out and walkr " to the airport. He came back and said with nine per cent first-choice | votes. Sen. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota was third, but with only four per cent first-choice votes. Surprisingly. Sen. John J. Spark- only three-to-five per cent of either man of Alabama, who was Stevenson's running mate in 1952. got only three-to-five per cent of either first, second or third choice for the vice-presidency. In all, 45 Democrats were suggested for the : vice-presidency. This indicates; how wide open this race may be.! On the Republican tally, with 1 only 11 per cent of the newsmen believing- President Eisenhower will run for a second term, it fol-l lowed naturally that only eight peri cent save him as their first choice.! Vice President Nixon led the parade to head the GOP ticket I with 41 per cent first-choice votes.! Chief Justice Warren was second with 19 per cent first-choice I votes. President Eisenhower was! third, and Gov. Thomas E. Dewey! of New York and Sen. William j Knowland of California were tied! for fourth with five per cent of the first-choice votes. Twenty-six Republicans were named as Presidential possibilities. Aside from those mentioned, none got more than four votes. Nixon also headed the poll as likeliest vice-presidential candidate, with 17 per cent first-choice votes. Gov. Herter was next with 11 per cent first-choice votes. Harold Stassen of Minnesota and Sen. Clifford Case of New Jersey tied' for third place with 3.2 per cent of first, second and third-choice j votes. Nobody else showed any | strength at all.
