TUESDAY, MARCH 18, 1956 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE PTV1 Presidential Preview IV Ike Seems to Have Gained Strength in Massachusetts By RELMAN MORIN BOSTON (AP) — In Massachusetts today, at this early stage of an election year, it appears that mots of the people who "liked Ike" in 1952 still like him, and want him to stay in the White House. Neither his illness, nor the possibility that he might be unable to finish a second term, teems to have cost him any substantial number of votes here. NBC to Pit TV's First Starlet Against Veteran Ed Sullivan Oh the contrary, he may have talned strength in the state. These are impressions obtained from talking to politicians-^and plain Voters, in the normally Democratic big cities of Massachusetts, and in its normally Republican small towns. As in other parts of New England, the Bepublicans are beginning to worry -about party apathy and saying "We should run •cared." The Democratic state chairman, William H. Burke, says Eisenhower will not carry Massachusetts this time, and that the Democrats tre going to pick up one, and perhaps two more seats in Congress. Each party now has seven. - "Popular Hero" But another top Democrat recently told a reporter when questioned about Eisenhower's position In the state: "Let's face it, he's a popular hero. The Republicans are all go- Ing to vote for him again—and so are a lot of people in my own party." In 1952, Eisenhower, carried Massachusetts by 208,800 votes. He got 54 per cent of the total vote. • Today, the man on the street who "likes Ike" tends to give one or more of five reasons— 1. "He's done a good job." Said driver, "i voted for Stevenson last time, but I'm going to vote for Eisenhower this year. I'm satisfied with the way things are." 1. "He needs more time." said Gerald Harrison, captain of bellboys In a Springfield hotel, "I usually vote for the man, not the party. I think Eisenhower should have a chance to prove his ideas and work out his program. You just about get started in four years." 3. "I admire his courage. Said Mrs, Eugene Giampaolo of Auburn, "He may be risking his life to run again, and I just think he's wonderful to do that." 4. "I like his candor." Said E. M. Pittman, Springfield, retired oil company executive, "When a man comes out and tells you frankly lust how he sees his situation—well, you have to admire him." "Part-TITme Okay" 5. "Part-time doesn't bother me." Said Howard Coyne, a Boston dock construction worker, "Every time he takes a breather some peorple make a national Issue of it. After all. businessmen play golf too. Maybe he makes a. lot. of his decisions on the golf course, and that's all rteht with me." tioned "peace" as the reason they Only two people questioned men- are going to vote for Eisenhower. Republican organizations, generally, tend to consider It a top issue. On the Democratic side, Adlai Stevenson appears to be holding a long lead over his rivals for Mas- Pritish Jet Claims Record LONDON (let— Britain claims her. dart-like new jet fighter, the Fairey Delta 2, has captured the world ipeed record with a mark of 1,132 miles an hour. The Royal Aero Club said the single-Jet plane known to airmen as the "Droop Snoot" struck this average in two runs over' a nine- mile course In southern England. It recaptured the record from the United States. Test pilot Peter Twiss was at the controls. Col. Horace H. Hanes of the U.S. Air Force set the previous record last August when he flew a F100C Super Saber at Just over 822 miles an hour. Another U. S. plane, the Bell X1A, has flown at 1,650 miles per hour but not under record conditions. Box Office Opens 6:45 Show Starts 7:00 p.m. Admission 15c & 35c At All Times TUES. WED. & THURS. SINATRA...

Prank Lausche of Ohio, 5. In Boston, Stevenson's 3ercentage was substantially higher than fonJilE—state as a whole, a whopping 78 per cent: The poll was taken by faculty and students to government from Harvard and two other Massachusetts schools. More recently. Sen. John F. Kennedy came out in support oi Stevenson. However, the Massachusetts delegation to the Democratic convention is expected to go unpledged. The controversy over Vice President Nixon as a possible running mate for Eisenhower has developed little • opinion in Massachusetts. Some people like Nixon, some don't. But the majority this reporter met seemed simply puzzled by the argument. End advance Pms March 13 .

By JAMES BACON , HOLLYWOOD («•>—NBC-TV today unveiled television's first starlet—the network's answer to Ed Sullivan. She Is Pat Sheehan, a San Francisco dish with 'better lines than the Golden Gate Bridge. How she got signed by NBC Is one of thoee Cinderella . stories that crowd bus lines into Hollywood, it started a few weeks ago when Jack Keller, publicity man for Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, needed a good-looking model to pose for «ome still photos with the comics. Pat was suggested" and showed up for the sitting in a brief costume. "With those curves," commented Lewis, "this girl would be an' ideal straight man for comics."

He turned to an aide and ordered: "Sign that girl to a contrast^— Previously, most of television signees have been big names or new comics but never starlets. "We've always been. able to get them at scale," explained one network source. Under terms of 'Pat's contract, she will become a regular performer on The Comedy Hour, take .dramatic and voice lessons and pose for cheesecake. The Comedy Hour is the program that appears opposite Sullivan. The fact that Sullivan consistently beats the NBC show In the ratings is the reason for.Weaver's particular interest in the show. "We've learned that you can't beat Sullivan with other men," reported one NBC executive. .„ "Leo Cinemascope at Its Best Jimmy Berry With Stereophonic Sound!
