'FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 195« BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FTVl Presidential Preview VII: Mixed Feelings Surround All Candidates in Minnesota By DOUGLAS B. CORNELL MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota voters in next Tuesday's primary will provide another outpouring of votes for President Eisenhower and choose between Adlai Stevenson and Sen. Estes Kefauver in their first direct test. But within the ever-present ihadow of the farm issue, there •re mixed feelings surrounding .Elsenhower and his Democratic challengers. While there is no way of calculating their weight accurately, the feelings are bound to have an effect' in the tuneup primary election and in the main event next November. Some of the feeling about Eisenhower is in terms of dissatisfaction because of the serious farm problem; some in terms of a continuing personal popularity which some top Democrats concede; some in the country is him." For Stevenson there is a blending of admiration, bafflement over his adept, polished phrases, and also some resentment that the Democratic State Central Committee gave him its solid endorsement. For Kefauver, the Tennessee senator who is bucking Stevenson In next week's primary, there is almost a complete lack of criticism. You do heat some people win the primary but "I'm giving my vote to Kefauver. Stevenson Is a .little smart .alecky and I want to jack htm up." You collect such sentiment in a state which produced the "Minnesota miracle" four years ago—a mammoth write-in vote of 108,000 for Eisenhower in the presidential primary, although his name wasn't on the ballot that year. It helped propel him toward nomination and an easy-Minnesota victory in 1952. GOP State Chairman John A. Hartle is calling on Republicans! for another "tremendous showing terms of "Well,| in the primary" that will eclipse at peace under —___ . _ Paddlings, Bible Teachings Get Teacher Fired MOCONNELSVILLE, Ohio 1*1 — A high school .teacher in nearby Deavertown has been fired by the Deavertown Board of Education for allegedly paddling at least five wonder aloud whether he has ac- j of his girl s t u< j en t s an d for teaching quired. sufficient stature for the Bible subjects contrary to state presidency. i law.

Eberle is free on $500 bond pending grand jury action on a charge of assault and battery brought by the parents of Trenda Kennel, 15, one of the five girls. He has denied the charge. , Eberle, a graduate f of the Bob Jones Evangelistic "College In North Carolina, was an Instructor to English and government. It was his first year as a teacher. colored opinion: The two old-timers chatting the street corner in St. Cloud looked like farmers and said they used to be. They switched to tending bar. Said the one with evidence of a chaw of tobacco at the corners of his mouth: "I'll tell you what. I was always a Democrat until Ike came along. I still think he's okay. He never says anything bad about anybody." The one with the fur cap and Swedish accent remarked: ,"I was for Ike last time but I just think we ought to turn things around a bit. Stevenson — he's a pretty good man, ain't he?" J. R. Swiggum, who -operates a large motel on the edge of town, reported that 95 per cent of the numerous traveling men who stop there say they are for Eisenhower because business is good. The truck driver gassing up at Albany said that "I'm a union man and I'm for Ike again. A lot of us are." The farmer who pulled up by the pump said he hasn't been hurt too badly and "I suppose I'll be for Ike again if things don't get any worse." * Then there are farmers who talk like John Zwach of Walnut Grove, an independent who is inclined to be said he thinks Republican. He there will be swing to the Democrats because things' are "rough out on the farm." The fellow running a filling station at St. Michael was for Els- enhower four years ago but is "going back to the Democrats." He said he thought Stevenson would Box Office Opens 6:45 Show Starts 7:00 p.m. Admission loc & 35c At All Times FRIDAY & SATURDAY Double Feature They Rode - West i L MCNK • HmM b) Ml — AND 1 — BELA LUGOSI Serial, "Sea.

But also this year, both for the primary and the general election, Republicans are plagued by rumblings on farms where prices are down and costs up. Businessmen in some small towns are feeling the squeeze on the farmer. A regional distributor of farm Implements reports sales are down. The State Banking Department says farm conditions are reflected in a higher ratio of loans to deposits. Naturally,* the farmers who have been hurt worst are complaining loudest. Many others still are politically silent, although some may sit out the primary and the general election. Kefauver and Stevenson are roaming the state from end to end, with polite nods in one another's direction and heavy cannonading at the administration and its farm plan. For them, Minnesota will provide ,a far more direct, conclusive showdown than last Tuesday's primary in New Hampshire, where Stevenson's name wasn't on the rallot and he made no campaign appearances. Bach will be on the ballot here along - with slates of pledged national convention delegates. Anc each has put in long hours and miles on the campaign trails. Stevenson has to win this one decisively, as Kefauver did in New Hampshire, in order to pack some punch into his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. He has the party organization behinc him, from Gov. Freeman and Sen Humphrey on down. A newspaper poll, postcard ballots to a TV station, and some personal checking indicate he has a comfortable edge so far. DYESS NEWS Bj Ml*.
