MONDAY, MARCH 5, 1958 BLYTHEVItLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE GOP Has No One but Ike As its Standard Bearer By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — It was President Eisenhower himself who said the Republican is not "dependent" on one man. But it certainly is now. And he's the man. party , The reason: with the exception of Vice President Nixon — and there is some talk the Republicans may ditch him as Eisenhower's running mate — the party in the past four years has not built up any. potential successor to Elsenhower. The same thing happened to the Democrats in the Franklin D. Roosevelt-years. 'The Republicans may laud on the political rocks to 1960 if Eisenhower wins this year and they do no more in the next four years to push forward presidential prospects than they did in the past four. Eisenhower looked so much more the winner than any other Republican in sight that the party wanted him even though he starts out under a handicap — his heart attack — no other candidate would have to bear. May Cost Votes Eisenhower and his party can still hope his enormous popularity will carry the day. But they know uncertainty in the public mind about his health may cost them votes and make the result closer than in 1952. They can't afford a vice presidential candidate who will lose them votes. This year they know, voters will be thinking more than ever of the old saying: "The vice president is one heartbeat from the presidency." For that reason the man the Republicans pick as Eisenhower's running mate this year will probably be the man they would have section of Republicans — the Taft W jng — has small use for him. If he still has the presidential bug. he's been keeping it quiet. Lodge, chief U.S. delegate to the United Nations and a Uong- time Eisenhower backer, didn't even win re-election in his own state of Massachusetts the las time he ran for the Senate. Except for Secretary of th Treasury Humphrey, who says h doesn't want the job, no one h Eisenhower's Cabinet is ibein; talked of much for the vie presidency. Wisconsin Posse Subdues Three Gun-Slinging Burglars 100 armed villagers and officers of five counties tracked down three men yesterday after a gun battle that followed three burglaries. Dist. Aity. Glive Strang of Burnett County said the trio would be arraigned today after he determined the charges. Held overnight in the county jatt at Grantsburg were Eugene Morrissey, 33, and Francis Raymond Crosby, 33, of St. Paul, Minn., and Herbert Eisenzimmer, 31, Minneapolis. One man was found hiding behind a barn three miles west of here. He was unarmed and surrendered quietly. s The other two, also unarmed, were captured after a conservation warden in a light plane spotted them trudging along' railroad tracks seven mlies north of Danbury. The only one hurt in the early morning gun battle was Deputy Sheriff Con Linehan, 45, who suf- 10. Till; gu picked as their presidential can- fered a minor shotgun wound in the didate ifEisenhower wasn't running; whom have they to c.h o o s e from? A handful, of Republicans come to mind: Nixon, Sen. Knowland of California. Thomas E- ewey, Gov. Christian A. Herter of Massachusetts arid Henry Cabot Lodge. Eisenhower has pushed Nixon to the front since 1952. Nixon has wide support among many— but not all— Republican politicians. Eisenhower has declined to say he wants him again. Nixon's future is unclear. Presidential Timber? Knowland seems to consider himself presidential timber. He was anxious to run if Eisenhower didn't. He can hardly claim a huge following. He already has said he doesn't want the No. 3 place on Eisenhower's ticket. Herter has been mentioned. But he's no-national figure. There might be a dispute over his nomination for the vice presidency. He was born in Paris and the Constitution says a president must be a natural-born citizen. Dewey is a two-time loser in the presidential sweepstakes. A big The gun, fight began .after Gregory Johnson, 40, operator of a supermarket, got a call from a friend before 4 a.m. telling him there were men in his store. Johnson went to the scene with a rifle and saw three men corning from a grocery near his. He waited while his wife summoned help. Meanwhile, the men raided a hardware store. Linehan arrived as two of the strangers walked toward their au- rrn rd-4n wounding Linehan. The deputy and Johnson riddled the auto as it departed. The auto stopped near the hardware for the third man and then rolled out of town. The car returned while Johnson and Linehan were at home getting more ammunition. Undersheriff Emil Stusek surprised the men in a used car lot. They fled on foot. Then the posse was organized. Johnson said about $30 was taken from his store and "a few dollars" from the grocery.
