WISCONSIN (Continued from Page 1-) cratic primaries as they choose "Dissatisfaction" Any large crossover, particul y in normally Republican rura ireas, would be seized upon by Democrats as an Indication ol oter dissatisfaction with adminis^ ration farm policies. They contend ;uch a factor was responsible for i large Democratic vote in the Minnesota primary March 20. The Wisconsin ballots make no irovi-sion for write-ins either 'for resident or vice president. State political leaders were at dds as to what would constitute fair test of the relative strength f Eisenhower and Kefauver. PhlHeo Nash of Wisconsin lapids, state Democratic chair- ian, said any gain over the 1052 ecord, when Democratic delegate andldntes got only 25 per cent of ie total state vote, would show hfft in favor of his party. Phil Kuehn of Milwaukee, state OP chairman, said he expects he Eisenhower slate to carry at cast 50 per cent of the total vote. ie said the Democrats could not aim that they had gained any round unless Kefauver delegates ot more than half the total. Expects Gain He snld he expects the Demo- rats to gain over their 1952 show- ig because hot contests for mayor 1 Milwaukee and Madison—two 'emocratic strongholds — will rin gout the vote. Many political observers will j sregard the 1852 presidential pri- lary in their calculations to figure ie comparative strength of Elsen- ower and Kefauver. They will use the 1952 general ection figures for comparative urposes, on the theory thnt the ?neral election was the last real test in Wisconsin of Eisenhower's strength. In that election, he defeated Adlai Stevenson by getting 61 per cent of the total Vote. If Kefnuvcr can improve on the 39 per cent that Stevenson got in 1952, they believe. It will show a shift in favor of the Democrats.
