TOUHSDAT, MARCH iS, 1956 BLTTHEVILLl (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAOI Presidential Preview VI: New Jersey Democrats Seeking To Cut Through Ike's Popularity By JAMES DEVLIN TRENTON; N. J. (AP) — Democrats seeking to take New Jersey out of President Eisenhower's column say they hope to dispel a feeling he is "above politics" by lmkm* him directly to administration activities that have aroused criticism. Republican leaders predict Eisenhower will win by a larger margin than his vote lead in 1952. They contend efforts to destroy his popularity will get nowhere. pery former Democratic chairman, he will be supported by M per cent of Essex County, predicts that If of' the state's convention delega- It appears Harriman has any| tion—"all except a few eggheads." chance at all Jor tht nomination "Further," he said, "If a d«soV That is the-gist of opinion picked up on a reporter's political pulse- taking tour from Jersey City and Newark, through Trenton, to Camden. Gov. Robert B. Meyner, the state's 47-year-old chief executive, puts the Democratic case this wayl | "We have a job to acquint the public with the Eisenhower-Nixon record. Too often, the public have a way of disassociating what Eisenhower says and_Hhat his Cabinet or key people in the administration do." Recation Excellent On the other side. Republican State Chairman Samuel Bodine of Flemnigton says he has found the reaction of the average person to Eisenhower's second - term announcement is "excellent." j "They feel the country is safe : In his hands," Bodine said. "They want him tc continue on." -j How about Eisenhowers health,' since he suffered his heart attack'; ."He made the decision to run,'. said Bodine. "He wouldn't have unless he felt up to it. We are willing to abide by that decision." [ He said the Democrats would! make much of the health Question; "but they won't fool too many people." j Bodine said, he and the over-; whelming majority of Eisennow-j er's supporters would back any'vice) presidential candidate the .President favored. He said he has no object- Ions to Vice .President Nixon. In Nixon's Favor Raymond Bateman, executive director of the Republican State committee, said there has been a recent swing of public opinion In favor of Nixon. ~ " ' A Democratic local office holder. said his party's task is to dispel a j popular feeling.that Eisenhower is! a "dispenser of peace and prosper- > ity . . . above politics." •.! "How are you. going to beat him " he inquired, asking that he not be named; 'But this man saw solace in 1948. when Harry Truman upset predictions by beating out highly favored Thomas, K. Dewey., ; The. Democrats' realization that they have have an uphill fi^ht'to carry New Jersey, even though it has a Democratic governor, is given emphasis by Republican Bodine •. Jle predicts Eisenhower will win by 400,000 votes. But a sampling ; of public 'opinion shows there is strong Democratic sentiment too. In Camden, workers of the New York Shipbuilding Corp. roundly booed Elsenhower when.he visited there on a campaign tour in 1952. Five or six workers, interviewed at the same intersection where the booing occurred, indicated ' they don't "like Ike" better now. Robert Grimmle, a welder, of Berlin, N. J., while not attempting to speak for .all the men in the yard, said many believe the Tail-Hartley law — though not changed—is being enforced more strictly under the Eisenhower administration. Point to Strike He and others pointed to the lengthy Westinghouse strike. They contended mass picketing was banned but that the company was allowed to import, busloads of strlke-breakin gworkers. Qrimmie professed no great Interest in what candidate the Democrats chose, whether Adlai Stevenson o'f Illinois, Oov, Averell Harriman of New Yok or Sen. Estes Kefauver of- Tennessee. He said the main thing is to elect a men of Democratic philosophy, which he described as more favorable to the working man. Meyner and most other Democratic leaders in New Jersey lean torard' Stevenson. Kefauver has some followers. Harriman is e- ported to have some latent sup, port, particularly in the Jersey City (Hudson. County) area across the Hudson River from New York City. By 95 Fersent William Egan, of Newark, pep- lock develops among Stevenson, Harrlmtm and Kefauver, you can expect Truman to get the nomination. He will say he Is more than 10 years old but that he will live longer than anybody. That's the way he goes about things." The people you stop on the street have a variety of views on the election. A refrigerator salesman In K ark, all out for Elsenhower, said the country is "well off In. .his hands." He predicted Elsenhowei would win by a larger margin than before. But Ludwig Scapatl, a mechanic, of Newark, said, "The Republican party is done. Ike promised too much. The Republicans are doing nothing to help the poor people." The «,000,000 families In United States own about 49,000,000 animal pets. • • Will Provides For the Stock MARINETTE, Wis.
