MONDAY, MARCH 26, 1956 BLYTHEVILLE'(ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Presidential Preview XIII: Pennsylvania Is Expected To be Major Battleground By JAMES DEVILN PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Pennsylvania—President Eisenhower's adopted state—gives signs of becoming a major battleground in this fall's presidential election. That's the impression gained by a reporter talking with polirivians.and voters in sample communities in the eastern part of the state. Pennsylvania is a rich political pletely unwilling to do." prize. It has 32 electoral votes, the same number as California, and second only to New "York's 45. Eisenhower, now registered to vote at Gettysburg, took the Keystone State by 269,000 votes over Adlai Stevenson in his 1952 landslide. In 1954, Democratic Gov. Gefflge. M. Leader was elected by a 279,000 margin. HOW will it go in 1956? There are indications of a stiff and possibly close contest. Republicans note that the 1952 vote was larger than when Leader won. They are counting on Eisenhower's popularity and the GOP's Eisenhower and Sen. William P. Knowland of California will be listed on the Republican presidential preference ballot April 24, but Knowland Is waging no campaign His name was entered before Eisenhower's second term announcement and could not be withdrawn. Stevenson,.is unopposed on the Democratic side. The nucleus of Democratic strength in Pennsylvania is in Philadelphia, the East's second largest city, which Stevenson carried by 162,000 vots in 1952; in Pittsburgh and the surrounding steel and soft coal areas; and the hard coal areas of the northeast. peace" a"nd prosperity" theme to' The Republicans - ......1- count on the rural attract voters who apparently stayed home in 1954. On the oilier hand, the Democrats have some reasons for optimism. Their capture of the State House at Harrisburg for the first time in 20 years gave them a life- greater incentive and confidence. Also, it gave them patronage— the distribution of state jobs. That. In turn, has tended to strengthen the Democratic party organization Further, the Democrats made gains in county elections last year. They now control 39 of the state's 67 counties. . None of these lactors favorable to them existed in 1952, or even In 1954 when they elected Leader, a virtual unknown before the campaign. Whether they can offset the Eisenhower popularity is something that only the voters can decide. A spirted contest for the U.S. Senate will add Nov. 6 balloting. Interest to the ' traditionally vote and a heavy turnout in four of Philadelphia's suburban counties — Montgomery, Delaware, Chester and Bucks. The complexion of Bucks is changing, however, with increased industrialization there. Last year Bucks went Democratic in local elections. It is on such trends that the Democrats pin their hopes. The Republicans are depending on Eisenhower. ', Republican Sen. James H. Duff, a former governor and; an original Eisenhower booster, is seeking reelection. It is regarded as a foregone conclusion that Duff's Democratic opponent will be Joseph S. Clark Jr., forme mayor of Philadelphia, a "reform" Democrat who helped break the Republicans' old-time | grip on the city. Duff already has lambasted Clark as a "left winger" because of his connections with Americans for Democratic'Acation. Clark has termed Duff a "do nothing" senator who he says sponsored no major legislation and was absent on many roll call votes. Duff, taking note of.Clark's crlt- Ism, commented in Washington: "Personally, I worked vfgorous- ly all over America for Eisenhower's nomination and election, and since his election I have supported him consistently in the Senate in all key legislation, which apparently Clark would be com- Japanese Prince Is Graduated TOKYO (/P)—Crown Prince Akl- hito said goodby to his college classmates at graduation ceremonies today.
