PAGI nx B1YTHEV1LLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS MONDAY. DECEMBER 12,19155 Ike May Have Good Reason for Keeping Mum By JAMES MAR LOW A«ocl*Ud ITrsi Newi Analyit WASHINGTON Ufi — If President Elsenhower has made up his mind not to run again, there are some practical political reasons to explain why he hasn't said so yet. Any lame-duck president, which J* what Eisenhower would be the moment he said he would not seek re-election, Is bound to lose some Influence in his own party and in Congress. It's possible Eisenhower still hasn't made up his mind and won't until after the doctors tell him whether he has made a full recovery and can chance another term. That won't be until mid-February or later. Not Checrlny The weekend was not exactly cheering for anyone who thought Eisenhower would make quick and uninterrupted progress toward full recovery. His doctors said h« would have to slow down. After checking him over they said he had been fatigued by some of his conferences with government officials. He had been holding them at Gettysburg and at Camp David, 25 miles from there. It's important for Elsenhower to retain his full influence as Ions as possible in Congress where, in January, he presents his 1956 program. No doubt he hopes it will, if passed. :rown his four White House years. Getting it through Congress will be no cinch anyway. But he would have at least a couple of months to push his program, while his In- iluence was uiidiminished. if he waited until late February before saying this was his last term. His delay is a roadblock to other Republicans who want to run if he doesn't. The longer he holds off announcing a decision, the less time they have to beat the bushes for themselves. He may not be en- thusiastic about them anyway. If in late February he finally •ays he won't run again and then endorses some Individual h« likes, that man will start off with an advantage over the other would- be presidents who had hesitated to speak until Eisenhowyr had spoken. Since they know that, the pressure on Eisenhower to speak out may increase as the new year rolls around.
