THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 1MN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE MTU Ike's Decision to Run Puts Stress on Vice Presidency By JAMES MAKLOW Associated Press News Analyst • WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower's decision to run again has'— because of his health — raised questions which will persist up to election day and, if he wins, beyond it. The questions all revolve around the vice presidency and the possibility that Eisenhower, having had one heart attack, may suffer another which disables or kills him after his nomination or, if he wins, after_his election. The voters- thit year will ' '"" ~—--' aware, more than in any election in history, that In voting for Republican vice presidential candidate they may be choosing a president. For the same reason Eisenhower knows that if he picks running mate a man unacceptable to a lot of voters, rfe-himself may lose the election. He has declined to say he wants Vice President Nixon to run with him again, although he as praised Nixon yesterday. Here Are Questions Here are questions raised Eisenhower's decision to seek reelection: 1. What happens if he should die—after the Republican convention nominates him and presidential candidate—but before election day? The Republican National Com' mittee, if there's no time for another convention, can by name another presidential candidate or push the vice presidential candidate up into the No. and name another man for vice president. 2. What happens. if Eisenhower wins the election Nov. 6 but dies before the Electoral College meets Dec. 17 to cast its ballots formally naming him as the man who will take office as president? There's no certain answer. This situation has never arisen before. A Problem This is the problem: On election day you do not vote directly for a president and vice president. You vote for a slate of party electors in each state. They then meet and elect a president. This has become a formality. The electors always vote for the two men who headed their party's ticket in the election. But. under the Constitution, they don't have to. They are legally free to vote for anyone. What then would happen if Eisenhower died between Nov. 6 and OB ion the an- a 3W- his ble lay nts rlth ain by re- uld en- Ice ore )m~ in- self idi- tial pot Ice ver ies ets lal- ftlO "his ' . • a fou ors md me ays led on. ley illy Blind Ucc. ii r zriuufiuiy uic rveyuunv^tuj National Committee would ask the Republican electors who won — through Eisenhower — to elect the successful vice presidential candidate president. Then the comit- tee could name someone else for vice president and ask the elctors to approve him too. It would be up to the electors to do that or do as they pleased. 3. What happens if Eisenhower having won the election and the Electoral College vote on Dec. 17, dies between that date and Jan. •20, mau&iuaiiun flay Ipr the uew President?
