FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 19W BLYTWEYILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THRE1 Presidential Preview III; Business Graphs Are Political Gauges to Connecticut Voters By RELMAN MOR1N HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A zooming graph of business activity, not President Eisenhower's cardiogram, appears to be the overriding political factor in Connecticut today. For many people, present high levels of employment and income in the state more than balance any uncertainties arising from Eisenhower's heart attack. The man on the street seems prepared to let Eisenhower judge his own capabilities. Meanwhile, everybody likes prosperity. As Joseph Pane, a Danbury machine designer, put it: "We've had four good years. I go on the theory Ike will last another four, so I'm for the same ticket." Or Joseph Krzys, Thoinpsonville factory safety supervisor and a Democrat: "I voted for Ike in '52, and what I do this year depends on who tlie Democrats nominate, not on Eisenhower's health. I think he's been good for us." Samplings of opinion you get today may wholly change before November's election day. But these factors ^ook significant now. Significant Factors 1. Democrats talk more about shrinking Eisenhower's 1952 Connecticut margin — 130,000 — and capturing a seat in the U.S. Senate than or carrying the state lor their presidential candidate. 2. Republicans are so confident that they are beginning to caution each other against apathy and overconfidence. ' Connecticut is a good place to watch both parties because it fits no particular political mold It is strongly oriented toward New York, yet it also feels the pull of New England. It is one of the nation's great workshops, yet politicians say it is basically Republican. But it has a Democratic governor, personable Abraham Bibicoff. who seems more popular today than when he \Vas elected, and a GOP House. Independent In short, voters tend to be independent, tough-minded. They are ingrained with the town meet ing tradition. Here is what they have been saying to this reporter on major aspects of the corning election: AUDITORIUM APR 2 LIGHT HEARTED, MEMPHIS^ RADIANT SPECTACLE! 8 MAIL ORDERS NOW!

Eisenhower plus prosperity seems, to Republicans, to mean a sure victory in the fall with at least as great a majority as he had in 1952, maybe bigger. They don't believe his illness will be a drawback. Said John F. Sweeney, a. Rockville advertising man: "I think he'll live longer than if he hadn't had that attack Anyway, businessmen here were 'certainly pleased with his announcement." The Democratic city clerk of Rockville, E. Fenton Burek, said, however: Prosperity Important "His illness is going to cost him votes. Yes, the prosperity angle is important, but even so, a lot o! independent votes will come to us — not to the Republican vice president." Mostly., however, Democrats say they hope to cut down Eisenhower's margin, perhaps by half. If so, they say, they have a good chance of electing Eep. Thomas odd to the Senate seat now held by Prescott Bush. As for the Democratic presidential candidate, the situation in Connecticut is best described as "fluid." Adlai Stevenson has his admirers here, but so has Sen. Estes Kefauver. In 1952, Stevenson was unable to carry a single county. Fairly recently, Gov. Ribicoff declared his support tor Stevenson. Now the question of Republican candidate for vice president — of more than usual interest this year. Nixon > . So far as Connecticut is concerned, it seems to be Richard M. Nixon. You get that not only from GOP party heads but from the man on the street. State Chairman Clarence Baldwin, to be sure, said he would not take a position on the question at this time. But he added, "I have a great deal of respect for Nixon's ability and I think he has been an outstanding vice president." The mayor of Rockville, Herman Olson, said, "I personally OSCEOLANEWS By Beltji NtlU Starr Mrs. Lavada Powell spent ttw weekend with her daughter, Jonan Kelson, who is a student at Lindenwood College in St. Charles, Mo.
