" THURSDAY, MARCH 8, BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE MINE* Presidential Preview II: Sen. Byrd Is Key In Virginia But He Is Keeping Silent By ERNEST B. VACCARO RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Most top Democrats agreed today that unless.U. S. Sen. Harry F. Byrd supports his party's nominee for president this year President Eisenhower probably will carry Virginia-again, Robert Whitehead, a leader of* • the anti-Byrd faction in the Democratic party, '.old '.his reporter that if the rival groups united behind the candidate, "we'd have a good chance of returning-the-state to the Democratic fold" Otherwise, he said, "I don't see how we can win." He said Byrd's support is vital to victory. Byrd refused to support Adlai Stevenson in 1952'because he said he considered Stevenson's views too much the .same as former President Truman's on labor, civil rights and other issues. While Byrd did not publicly endorse Eisenhower, the Republican candidate carried the state with a margin of 80,360 votes. Keeping Silent Byrd is keeping silent so far on the newly announced candidacy of Elsenhower and that of Democrat Stevenson, who has Whitehead's open support. Those close to Byrtl say he is not too enthusiastic just now about either Eisenhower or Stevenson in view of developments on the civil rights and racial fronts. But they say he regards Sen. Kefauver CD- Tenn) and New York Gov. Averell Harriman with even less favor. Kefauver is out campaigning for the Democratic nomination. Harriman is an "inactive" candidate. A check of leading Democrats in Virginia indicates there is little sentiment at this time for a third party. Developments on racial integration, including platforms of the two major parties and statements of the candidates, ultimately will determine how Byrd takes his stand, his friends say. "Missive Resistance" The senator is known to have expressed disappointment over Eisenhower's role leading up to the Supreme Court decision against school segregation and the hand the Justice Department played in asking for it. Byrd spoke up recently with a call to the South for "massive resistance" to federal district court orders carrying out the U.S. Su preme Court decree against segregation In ~the public schools. Byrd reportedly didn't like Vice President Nixon's New York speech praising the .• Republican stand on civil rights and desegregation. 'On the other hand, he was said to have expressed some displeasure with Stevenson's speeches and statements in his campaign for the Democratic nomination. Byrd regards Stevenson as the most "moderate" of the top three party hopefuls, but is far from sure Stevenson is moderate enough either on the racial or labor issues Only Stevenson Party leaders here say privately that Stevenson is the only one of the three who would have a chance of carrying Virginia. "But," they told this reporter, one after another, "Sen. Byrd holds the key to whether Stevenson can win," Virtually every one from Gov. Thomas B. Stanjfey on down said Eisenhower will be handicapped in Virginia if Nixon is his running mate again, principally because of the New York speech .and its emphasis on civil rights. Many say that ecretary of the Treasury Humphrey would help Eisenhower. Oliver W.
