THTJKSDAY, MARCH 22,1958 BLTTHEVTJ.LE (ARK.) COURIER'' NEWS PAGE Presidential Preview XI: Lausche - Bender Battle To Hold Ohio Spotlight By JACK BELL ' •'.': COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The ingredients are being assembled.in Ohio today for.'a free-wheeling political battle that may determine control of the senate m the next Congress. The average voter here is inclined to accept forecasts that President Eisenhower will sweep Ohio again next fall as he did in 1952. Candidates for governor, have not yet been chosen in the primaries. But all Ohio knows that Democratic Gov. Frank J. Lausche ana Republican Sen. George H. Bender are set to throw the political book at each other in the senatorial race.. And there is no unanimity of opinion about the outcome. Lausche, a political leader who ignores both labor leaders and Democratic organization chieftains, is trying out in a new league after five two-year terms as governor—a record in Ohio. He won his tourth term in 1952 by a margin of 425,000 votes while Eisenhower was rolling to a 500,000 majority in the state. Bender beat Democratic Sen Thomas A. Burke, a Lausche appointee, by only 2.900 votes in 1954 to round out the last two years! of Tai't's term. Taft died in mid- 1953. Cold statistics fail to take into account the cross-currents of Ohio politics which are likely to find Democratic Representatives Michael J. Kirwan, chairman of the party's congressional campaign committee, and Wayne Hays, 18th District congressman, rolling all possible stumbling blocks in Lausche's path.

Those coattails are already occupied .by me. and there isn't room for anybody else there." A finance committee made up of some of Ohio's leading industrialists is out to raise $500,000 for Bender's campaign. 'Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey has written letters~solicitiJg donations. Lausche says he won't spend more than $30,000 and may make an issue of the contrast. Bender is pitching his campaign on the contention that Eisenhower needs a Republican Senate If he Senate Republi- a net gain of one against .Democratic, Representatives James, G.

He has lost to Bender some of the financial support he always had from Republican industrialists in his campaigns for governor. On the other hand, the Irrepressible Bender faces a psychological disadvantage born of Lausche's freo.uent state victories. Not all Ohio Republicans are enthusiastic about Bender and, as he says himself, one of his main jobs is to "beep the Tegular Republicans in the party" and away from Lausche's camp. The biggest asset going for Bender appears to be Eisenhower's decision to run again. Bender's voice Is raised constantly these days in praise of Eisenhower and in pledges of loyalty to the OOP administration. But the unorthodox Lausche loo praises Eisenhower. This prompted the exasperated Bender to explode: wins a second term. Democrats now outnumber cans 49-47 and vote, combined with the vice president's tie - breaker, could give the GO? control in 1957. To Vote for "Peace" Bendex contends Ohio farmers are going to vote lor "peace" even if their economic condition isn't quite up to \vhat they .would like to have it. He said the farmers don't blame Eisenhower for their woes. Eugene H. Hanhart, Democratic state chairman, agreed with Lausche that it's too early to gauge the unrest among the -farmers whose crops are diversified and thus not so widely dependent on government payments. "I wouldn't maie the statement that Eisenhower won't carry the state," Hanhart said. But he added he doesn't think even Eisenhower can save Bender from defeat. John Rooney, secretary treasurer of the Ohio CIO Council, conceded that "the President is more popular generally with labor people than many other Republicans would be." But he said he doesn't believe the president retains as wide appeal as he had in 1952. Rooney thought the Democrats might pick up "a seat or two" in the House. Ohio Republicans now hold 17 and Democrats 6 seats. Ray, Bliss, Republican State chairman, said h« is confident the GOP can hold all the House posts It now has and perhaps pick up some. Republicans apparently are going to put up their strongest fights Novelist Weds YUMA,- Ariz.
