Decided Early Beyond this, he declared, he made up.his mind long before his heart attack that if he ran again— adding that he hadn't decided before he was stricken-—he wouldn't conduct a campaign in which he was "personally a candidate." ' "On the record are the aims, the efi'orts, the accomplishments and the plans for the future of this administration," he ssid. "Those facts constitute my personal program." Because of this, he said he had Caruthersville To Celebrate Centennial ..CARUTHERSVILLE — Harold Jones, County • Court clerk, was elected chairman of the Caruthersville Centennial Committee it First State Bank here Tuesday night.

" would resort to "mass communication" to appeal to the voters to let him complete in the next four years the program he 'said "has not vet reached the state of development end fruition that I . . .' hoped could be accomplished, within a single term in this office." "Over Confident" Sen. Ellender <D-La) said Eisenhower's television appearance, coached by producer Robert Montgomery, presented the President in a "very cocky and overconfident" role. "He wants to stay home, keep on golfing and let other people do the chores for him," Ellender said. "In my opinion, the American people w(ll not swallow that kind of a proposition. He -said he was sick and not capable of carry- Ing on the full duties of his office." Sen. Humphrey ID-Minn) commented: "It seems like Mr. Eisenhower is planning a part-time campaign to become a part-time president." Humphrey said Eisenhower had been "compelled" to run again by Republicans "trying to save their party rather than save his health." But Sen. Aiken (R-Vt) said: "I don't believe you would get such frankness as that but of any other capital in the world . . . The President leaves no doubt that he feels fully equal to carrying on the work of the presidency. The public will share his confidence." Vigorous Campaign Sen. Sparkman of Alabama, the 1852 Democratic vice presidential nominee, said he feels sure Democrats won't fall into the "trap" of depending on television and radio primarily in their campaign. "I am confident the Democratic nominee will wage a vigorous, ria- tionwide^campaign no matter what the Republicans do," Sparkman tola an interviewer. Democratic National Chairman Paul M. Butler said he doesn't think the voters will accept a "partrtime president," Butler said the health issue probr ably will "dominate the campaign and tend obliterate discussion and consideration of the great issues of foreign and domestic policy." Rep. udall (D-Ariz) said Elsen- hower's '^physical fitness to perform the duties of the presidency on a full-time basis will be widely discussed this year." He said the President's "unavailability" to congressional members of both parties already had caused "uncertainty on domestic problems.' Sen. Carlson (R-Kan) said he believes the people were "inv pressed by the sincerity of the President" in last night's talk. Will Accept Decision The Kansas senator added he - thinks the Republicans will accept gladly Eisenhower's decision to limit his campaigning largely to mass communication methods. Eisenhower's remark at yesterday's news conference that he would want to wait until after his own nomination before indicating his choice for second place on the ticket was taken with a grain of political salt by most Republicans Few party members felt he could delay that long in giving some clear-cut sign that he wishes to abandon or retain Vice President Nixon. . . , Eisenhower's praise of Nixon as "a loyal and dedicated associate, and a successful one" gave Nixon's friends consolation. His refusal to say more left the field wide open for operations by those who want to jettison Nixon. Some of Eisenhower's closest associates are listed among those reputed to favor kicking Nixon upstairs, possibly to a Cabinet post. Nixon has become such a target for Democratic attacks as to. inject into the campaign a bitterness that otherwise might not be there And they argue that Nixon's political appeal is far below that of Eisenhower. The vice president's friends feel If. the choice were left to the Republican convention, he would win in a walk. But they 'concede -if Elsenhower wants somebody else his wishes will prevail. The Importance of second place on the GOP ticket Is likely to be emphasized by continued suggestions from Democrats that Eisenhower's health may not withstand tnother four years, in the White House. No Predictions Elsenhower echoed . none of the enthusiastic predictions of other Republicans of victory In November. And Democrats were less op- timlstlc. privately than in their public' foreonsU. Sen, Russell- (D-GiO, who bid uinsuccessiully for the Democratic presidential nomination In 1652, Mid Elsenhower would be "« tough, but not Invincible opponent for the Democratic'party." : OoVi Robert B.
