JfEDTfESDAY, MARCH ti, BLYTHEVTLL1 (ARK.) COtrRIER"NEWB~ Presidential Preview X: Gubernatorial Race Clouds Florida's Political Picture By ERNEST B. VACCARO TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Joseph Samuel Haysepian typifies some of trie confusior you run into in trying to figure out whether Florida will go for President Eisenhower again in November. • • : ' Havsepian is a red-hot Eisenhower booster. But he is just as red hot for Fuller Warren a Democratic former governor and now one of five men contesting Gov. Leroy Collins bid for renomination in the May 8 primary. • It doesn't strike Havsepian as unusual that Warren, whom ,he champions so stoutly, is a strong booster of Adlai Stevenson both against Sen. Bates KeJauver of Tennessee for Florida's 28 votes In the Democratic National Cpn- ventiorj, and against Elsenhower mncmncina The Opening of The Godley - Womack Hospital & Clinic MAN I LA, ARK.

Domh't Like Nixon Vice President Nixon is not his choice for Ike's running mate "Nixon seems to agitate people,' he said. "He could lose Eisen hower Florida." Nevertheless Havsepian pedlcts, Florida wll vote for Eisenhower again. That view differs greatly frorr those of former Gov. Warren and Oov.

(/P) — President Eisenhower, is the overwhelming livorlte of North Carolina's 38 delegates who will help choose the Republican ticket at the party's national convention at San Francisco this August. Of M delegates contacted in an Associated Press poll of their preferences for the national ticket, eight came out solidly for Richard Nixon party's 1956 standard bearer. Peyton Yon, assistant treasurer of the Republican State Executive Committee, registered as a Republican after a tour of duty in 1952 as a Democrats-for-Eisenhower worker. He told this reporter he and a lot of his neighbors switched to Eisenhower four years ago because they thought the national Democratic organization had gone too far in pushing civil rights. And while he said he is confident Elsenhower will carry the state again, he said the People he has talked to in west rioriaa "aren't too .strong for Nixon." adding: "He'll'have to do a sell; ing job for himself down here." Southern opposition to Nixon, where it is expressed, stems almost directly from his recent New York speech in which he claimed credit for the OOP stand in the civil rights field. You won't run into a white an- tisegregationist in Florida in hours of looking and it's almost as hard to find an Eisenhower Democrat or Republican of 1952 who blames Eisenhower personally for the integration movement. A couple of Negro bellboys in a local hotel said they would vote Democratic. "1 think times will be better for working people like us if the. Democrats get in," one of them said. "But, lor goodness sake, don't put my name in the paper." Disorganized- Collins said that if the election were held, now, he thinks Eisenhower would carry the state again. "But," he said, "you've got to remember that four years ago the Democratic leadership. was silent. And, you must bear in mind that the. party in the state was disorganized." Today, Collins said, the part} is better financed, and he addec that he thought there were indications it will be close ranks behind the presidential nominee once the primary are out of the way. Collins hasn't, committed him self, but some of his own strong"' -est supporters are working for Stevenson. There's a slate of delegates foi Senate Republican Leader William Knowland of California enterec against the Eisenhower slate in the Republican presidential pri mary May 29. But it is describee as a sort : of "standby" slate in the event that Eisenhower should for any reason, withdraw his candidacy. ' Joe Miller Jr., Florida chairman of the • Florida-for-Knowlanc organization, said, /'Our entire program is one of supporting the President if at the time of the convention he is a candidate." as vice presidential nominee. The other 16 hedged the question. Most picked "Nixon, if Ike wants lirn," and about three of these indicated they might prefer someone else. Several wouldn't comment. Sen. William Knowland of California was mentioned three times by those who indicated a secondary choice for the presidential nomination if Eisenhower is not available. Gov. Christian Herter of Massachusetts was named twice, and Gov. Theodore McKeldin of Maryland and Milton Eisenhower, the President's brother, once each. Herter got six mentions for the vice presidential spot as a secondary choice; Knowland got four. Only one man of the 24 did not name Eisenhower as his choice for the top spot on the ticket. Charles D. Owen Jr. of Asheville, a delegate-at-large, declined any comment until he is officially notified of his election as a delegate. Wrong Chains And Wrong Car TOWSON, Md. If i — With last weekend's snow ju«t about gone from the streets, Atty. W. Lee Harrison decided to remove his tire chains. He had removed one set from a car outside the courthouse and was working on the other when stranger stepped up and said: "Everything is all right. I was going to remove them myself." Theif'HarrtsOn noticed that his car was parked in back o» the one he was working on. Both were the same make, the same color and bore the same type chains. The embarrassed Harrison then went to work on his own chains.
