MONDAY, MARCH It, IBM BLTTHEVILLB <ARKj COURIER NEW* PAGB THRKK Pretidentiol Preview III Not Much Chance To Win. California Seen for Demos from GOP Fold EDITOR'S NOTE: This if one In a series by the AP's national political reporters who are sur- Y«ytaf tt» iltuaUm wrow the country to the light of President Eisenhower's decision to seek * •K«od term. ' By MORRIE LANDSBURG SACRAMENTO — A hard thing to come by in California today is any widespread prediction that the Democrats will take the big state away from President Eisenhower in 1956, Some people tell you they won't vote for Elsenhower again because of his heart attack. Others don't like Vice President Nixon a Cal- ifomian But enough are saying they'll stick with Eisenhower to make the Democrats think twice About their chances. Nixon or no Ninon on the ticket, Republicans are talkine of a landslide victory. The state is booming, jobs are plentiful, business is good. Eisenhower's per^ sonal popularity remains high. Farm folk contend they aren't as well off as they were four years ago but their vote is relatively small in a state with 13 ! / 2 million population. Eisenhower lost the Central Valley farm belt to Adlai Stevenson in 1852 — yet carried California by 800,000 votes. Happy Over Outlook Republicans say they are extra happy over the 1956 outlook. The President's decision to go for a second term called off a possible three-way fight to control the state's 70 delegates to the OOP National Convention. Instead, the three potential rivals—Nixon, Sen. William F. Knowland and Qov. Goodwin J. Knight—are united behind the single delegation pledged to Eisenhower in the June 5 presidential primary. The maneuvering among the state's Republican big three stole most of the interest in the political scene here despite Stevenson's forthcoming contest with Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee for ' the 68 Democratic delegates. That campaign won't really get rolling lor another few weeks. Not BI; Issue Oddly •nough, Nixon is not a big issue in California—not yet, anyway. There are voters, of course, who wonder whether he'd be right for the job in case anything happened to Eisenhower. But the controversy over the 43- year-old vice president as originated on the outside. The California Republican Assembly, a state organization of party clubs, showed no hesitancy in endorsing Nixon for re-election. At the moment, Democrats are pretty busy getting ready for the Stevenson-Keiauver showdown. The Democratic state chairman, Mrs. Elizabeth Shyder : of Los Anegles,.. .predicts Stevenson will come out on top in California. Tom C. Carrell of San Fernando, Kefauver's state chairman, replied, "we're sure we are going to carry California." Stevenson Has Edge Stevenson appears to have the edge over Kefauve- now, coming in as his party's 1952 nominee and with the support of all top Democratic officials in the state except for Mrs. Clara Shirpser, national committeewoman Republicans concede that any GOP candidate other than Eisenhower would face a tough job to swing California. There are some formative signs of a Democratic trend in voting, and the election registration is still preponderantly Democratic. But, says GOP 'State Chairman Thomas W. Caldecott, "With President Eisenhower heading the Republican ticket, he will be reelected with a large majority." "Democatic chances are much better than they were in 1952," says Mrs. Snyder. An ' old California campaigner, former Democratic Gov. Culbert L. Olson, descibed Eisenhower as the strongest candidate the Republicans can nominate. He added, "That doesn't mean, however, that be can't be beaten by the Democratic nominee." Caldecott doesn't foresee any changes in the 19-11 Republican majority in the state's present congressional delegaKon. Mrs. Snyder looks for Democratic gains —she won't say how many. She also sees a good" chance of beating Republican Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel. Battling for the Democratic nomination to oppose California's junior senator are 39-year-old State Sen. Richard Richards and former TJ. S. Rep. Samuel W. Yorty, both of Los Angeles. Insurance Business Is Going To the Dogs—and Cats, Too By KENE J. CAPPON KANSAS CITY (IP) —The insurance business has gone to the dogs here, and if that works out it may go to the cats too. Two Kansas Citians, Richard E. Nelson and Gordon J. Reabe, are offering policies covering hospital expenses for pooches who fall ill, are wounded in brawls, or come too close to a car. Nelson said a similar project may be worked out for cats if the dog insurance goes according to plan. Since there are no risk tables for hounds, insurance men Nelson and Reabe spent several months plodding doggedly through records of five local veterinarians covering 10,000 pets before setting their premiums. "We've set the premium low enough—515 a year—for any owner to be interested," Nelson said. The policies go • on sale today. They're being written by the Employers Mutual Casualty Co., of Des Monies. Nelson predicted they would soon be available in all 48 states. The plan provides for such expenses as hospitalizatlon, surgery, X-rays, laboratory fees and drugs resulting from a dog's illness or accident. Coverage is available through licensed veterinary hospitals for dogs from 6 months to 10 years oi age. At POISONOUS FISH least 100 fishes have flesh that is dangerous to eat. Greatest number of poisonous fishes live in the Pacific, and even cooking does not make them safe to eat. It pays up to $75 for one hospitalization, with a limit of $150 during the policy term. The first $10, or 20 per cent of the claim—whichever is greater— is' deductible, on the principle of auto insurance. Reabe figures the insurance will prove a boon _to ailing dogs. "You know how folks will rush poor old Grandpa to the hospital when he's critically ill, then as soon as he's past the crisis they'll tell the doctor, 'We'd like to take him home, it's costing us $18 a day.' "Well, people do the same thing with their dogs, and with insurance they won't have to." Margaret Truman Meets Newsman's Folks and Rumors of Romance Buzx ZBBULOK, N. C. l/Pl — E. O.
