IATURDAY.-MARCH 10,1956 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE It Should Be a Mild Campaign If Demos FO//OW Spa.rkma.ris Line By JAMES MAKLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — This will be a pretty mild presidential campaign if the Democrats follow the line taken by Sen. Sparkman (D-Ala), whom they picked to reply to President Eisenhower. It would go like this: * : Clobber Eisenhower's aides but mix any criticism of Elsenhower himself with nice words; even praise him: make attacks on him more pbliaue than frontal; and blame him for sins of omission rather than those of commission You Can Learn About All Sorts Of Things from Congressmen The Democrats are in a dilemma with Eisenhower. And it seemed to peep through Sparkman's talk this week. He took to the airwaves in reply to Eisenhower's Feb. 29 broadcast dealing with his health and his running again. This is A Dilemma the dilemma: How to handle a president who Is so popular and has the widest sympathy and good will after his heart attack. Roughing up a national hero not in perfect health could lose votes. By this time any other presU dent, in office as long as Eisenhower, would be full of welts from opposition clubbing. There'd be no surprise in giving him more of the same when the campaign be- the Democrats haven t gan. But treated Eisenhower like that for most of his time in the White House. They have handled him as if he were marked: "Fragile: Use No Hooks." Eisenhower, no professional politician himself, could give the pros lessons If you accept this definition of a successful politician; one who gets much done he wants done while retaining maximum popularity to carry into the next election. From the beginning of his presidency Eisenhower, deliberately or by nature, put himself above the rough-and-tumble of politics. Making no personal attacks, he has given others a minimum excuse for attacking him personally. During these past three years angry Democrats may have wanted to hit Elsenhower directly but most of the time they aimed their fire at the men around him. If there were' casualties, they didn't include Elsenhower. "Will Never, lessen" Here are some phrases Sparkman's talk: "Our political differences will never, lessen . . .personal regard (for him). . . We respect.,Mr. Eisenhower for the candor he has shown (about his health) in his report to the people. . . . We thank him for his.frank explanation." Sparkman put his emphasis on Eisenhower's health, as was to be expected, since Eisenhower week before had: devoted his own broadcast to it. Sparkman- indicated the Democrats will make the President's health a major Issue. Sparkman argued that Eisenhower, because of his health, couldn't be a full-time president in a Job that needs full time. Eisenhower, he said, has had to dump some of his most critical duties on his aides and must continue to do so. Ke slammed the aides and opened up on the administration, not so much for what it did but what he said it failed to do. For instance: letting the Middle East problem 1 drift and failing to produce a policy to meet the Soviet's new shifts. Expensire Promotion 9 DALLAS Wl—A local department store has just completed one of a •very inexpensive promotion stunt. Some weeks ago when It opened a suburban store, 400 balloons, each bearing free merchandise certificates, were released. But high winds swept them away from the Dallas area. This week the store got back its only response. A farmer 70 miles away mailed back some certificates, saying he rarely got to Dallas. $100.00 IFOR YOUR OLD STOVI (In Working Condition) ON ANT FULL SIZE Florence Gas Range iHubbard & Son) urniture Phone 3-44091 Serving You Best is our Foremost Concern BURIAL INSURANCE LOGAN Funeral Home PLASTERING Patching or Compute Jobe STUCCO WORK WATIR PROOFING J-M7I tut EltlMt* ; Henchell Be»har»e By ED CBEAGH WASHINGTON W)—Did you ever eat a boiled peanut? Can you name the American town that charges people $5 for making an after-dinner speech? Do you know what the Irishman said to the recruiting sergeant? No? Come to Congress, then. You'll learn all sorts of no-doubt fascinating facts — maybe even qualify for the $64,000 Question — without so much as leaving your seat. In one session this week, as the Congressional Record dutifully reports, a House member who kept his ears open could have heard from a fellow member that: $5 Fee Ravenswood, W. Va., tosses an annual fund-raising dinner "for which everyone pays $5 whether he comes to eat, to sing, to dance, to cook, to wash dishes, or if he is the honored speaker.". Rep. Burnside (D-WVa) is the authority for this one. He says the accumulated $5 bills have bought the town all manner of things, ;.om baseball uniforms to football bleachers. Sen. Barkley (D-Ky) is in Ravenswood's, corner, too. He commands upwards of- $1,000 a speech on the lecture platform but he happily forked over $5 for the privilege of addressing Ravenswood. This kind of money is not peanuts —a fact that may or may not have reminded Rep. Grant (D-Ala) that Woman Saves Three Men SCRANTON, Pa. I*) -i A 50-year- old woman pulled three men to safety. Wednesday frc • an ice-coated pond In nearby Waymart. Mrs. Theresa Cobb heard cries for help, grabbed a section of garden hose and rushed to the scene.

The three, treated for shock and immersion, were Edward Jurtus, 29, this is National Peanut Week. Grant observed the occasion by asking his fellow lawmakers: "Have you ever eaten boiled peanuts? If not, you have really missed something." Didn't Boil Peanuts Grant didn't boil any peanuts to prove his point hut another friend of the peanut, Rep. Abbitt (D-Va) did the next best thing. He placed a supply of roasted peanuts in the House cloakrooms for members to munch. It took Rep. Yates CD-Ill), however, to unshuck the story about the Irishman. Yates, though he's only 46, is concerned about discrimination against older people In employment. ''Men and women," he said, "are lying about their age today to get jobs — like the Irishman who burst into the recruiting office the day after Pearl Harbor and said he wanted to enlist. 'How old are you?' asked the recruiting sergeant. 'Forty-one,' replied the applicant. 'I'm sorry, I can't use said the sergeant, 'we can't take people who are over 38.' "Next day the Irishman was back. 'Sergeant,' he said, 'I made a mistake yesterday. My age .is 38. Sure, it's my old mother what's General Says Rhee Will Run COLORADO. SPRINGS, Colo.

Wonder, yes—and discovery and complete trust. Suddenly I realized where I had seen that look before. I was about th« age of my own youngsters, sitting beside my mother ... just as they were sitting with me now. I remember so well—looking up and seeing that same expression of worship and faith and wonder on my mother's face. And such a deep happiness that I felt I had to reach out to touch her to share in this warmth. I don't remember that we ever talked together much about religion, my mother and 1.1 needed only to look at her face to know that I might find her peace and security at the, sam« source that sustained her over the years. The whole family , worshipping together every week, with others who believed is we did, was always i very special time. It gave us a closeness we felt very strongly, i strength that helped carry us through the week with hope and courage. And so »t service this morning, I sent up a prayer th»t my children would we my mothcr'i look on my fact ... and havt it to remember all their ycar». Give them a Faith to live by...
