THURSDAT, MARCH M, 1998 BLYTHBVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGBTHREI j Presidential Preview XVI: Ezra Benson's Home State Now Eisenhower Territory By MORRIE LANDSBERO SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A political survey of Utah points straight at one conclusion: this is now Eisenhower country. ... . ... . President Eisenhower carried the state in 1952 although most top Republicans m Utah preferred the late Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio for the nomination. Even as bitter a critic as Re- w] publican Gov. J. Bracken Lee says now that Eisenhower is more popular than he was four years ago. (Not with Lee. though.) "I'm perfectly satisfied with the administration," a young- clerk says from behind the counter of a general store in Layton. He voted for Eisenhower in '52. In pro-Democratic Ogden, an old time railroad man says he voted for Adlal Stevenson last time and may do so again. But, he adds, "I ieel Ike has done a good job." Aside from Eisenhower's personal appeal. factors work against Democratic prospects. One is business prosperity. The other is Ezra Taft Benson and the Mormon Church. Business Booming Retail trade, which broke all records nationally and locally in December, jumped 10 to 15 per cent above 1955 in January. Fabricated metals plants are six months behind in production. Copper mill payrolls are big and steady. Bank debits are 'way up. And when you ask the farmer about sagging receipts, he'll likely blame his troubles on someone other than Secretary of Agriculture Benson. "Generally speaking, our farm ers are not satisfied with the situation," said Frank G. Shelley, manager of the Utah Farm Bureau Federation, "but they feel the present administration Is doing the best job it can." Possibly more to the point, one fellow in nearby Weber County remarked, "You forget Ezra Taft's from Utah." Everybody you talk to mentions that. An Asset In Utah Whatever he may be elsewhere, Benson Is a GOP asset in Utah, •here upwards of 60 per cent of| members to be pro-Democratic, the people are Mormons. He / of the Council of Twelve Applies, second highest governing body of the Church or' Jesus Christ f Latter-Day Saints. State officials, Republicans; Mormon. Lee is an exception. Henry Moyle, another of the Twelve Apostles, shed no light to but that they don't always vote the straight ticket. ' Republican reaction to Nixon was varied. Gov. Lee, anti-Eisen- .hower to begin with, said he's not sure he "trusts" Nixon. Gordon Glasmann of Ogden, county Young Republican chairman, said Republicans there were pretty well split on whether Ntxon should continue a reporter trying to establish the I as Eisenhower's running mate church's attitude on the presidential campaign. 'The church," he said, "is not engaged in partisan politics." One thing Mormons will tell you is that they like Eisenhower because he stood by Benson during the stormy controversy over the farm problem. Eisenhower also appointed Mrs. Ivy Baker Priest of Utah as treasurer of the United States. ."aid he supported the Upper Colorado River project, which carries water and power features for this, Demo- semi-arid Utah. In the face of all cratic National Committeeman Calvin Rawlings acknowledges, We have a real fight on our hands." Yet, he says. think we have a good chance to. carry Utah." Nixon Will Hurt Him - : Other Democrats contend high commodity costs are forcing many small farmers and merchants out of business, and they say that will swing the state away from the Republicans in November.. Dave Turner, secretary of the Utah State Federation of Labor, said Vice President Nixon's presence on the GOP ticket "definitely will be a deterrent to labor voting for Eisenhower." Turner reported the latest survey shows 75 per cent of his 40,000 .Lorenzo Peterson, GOP chairman in the same county, defended Nixon. Democrats, split four years ago pmong three or four candidates, expect to line up their 12 convention votes for Adlai Stevenson unless he falters in primaries In Florida, California and elsewhere. South Korea Sets Election Date SEOUL, South Korea UP) — The South Korean government yesterday set May 15 as the date for the presidential election which will pit Syngman Rhee against one of, his long-time political foes. -The election date was announced a few hours, after the opposition Democratic party named National Assemblyman P. H. Shinicky, 63, to oppose the 81-year-old President's bid for a third term. Shinicky, a conseravtive, has been one of Rhee's bitterest political rivals since both fought the Japanese occupation of Korea before World War II. Rhee fled to Hawaii and the United States, Shi- nicky to China. Both are staunch anti-Communists. Most observers consider Rhee unbeatable.
