PACT TEH BI/miEVILLI (ARK.) COURIER TUESDAY, APRIL 10, 19M Kefauver Backers Riding High in Iowa By BRUCE BIOS8AT NEA Staff C orreapondent DKS MOINES, Iowa — (NBA) — The De mocratic currents in Iowa ar« runninf strongl lor Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee. . If Iowa and Minnesota are at all typical o f U. S. farm sentiment, then the signs here an the Kefauver sweep in Minnesota suggest that Adlai Stevenson, the 1952 presidential nom nee, is not the farmers' candidate in 1956. Key politicians in both parties in Iowa agree that the blow to Steven, •on in Minnesota had swift repercussions in this slate. Some Steven- »on-leaners stopped leaning. Pence- litters got off on Kefauver's side. "Walt and see" became a watchword for many who fear to turn Ihe wrong way. Stevenson leaders insist the hurt IM not mortal, that their man still can grab a heavy majority of Iowa's 24 convention delegates at the June 1 Democratic state convention. They say they're still solid in all the right places. But among Kefauver men, a growing fraternity, chests are puffed out with new confidence. Top man, Cecil Malone of Atlantic, says the evidences of support are pouring in. "Originally we had only 21 men," hft said. "Now we've got 100 in the organization and they're well spread throughout the state. Most of the county chairmen in farm areas are with us. I guess I've got some chairmen I don't know I've got." Malone calls the senator's Iowa campaign a "nickels and dimes" operation up to date, but says the coins are flowing In faster now, with even a little folding money. "But we're still not big. We've got just one machine. We've got Kefauver." Stevenson's backers would accept Malone's modest estimate of his organization. They say he drew 300 •gainst his 25 at their first important meeting. They claim labor in Des Motaes and Davenport. They don't believe the farmer can't be theirs. But they acknowledge Minnesota was a black day. "Serious defeat" were the words one used. They know, too, that a lot of Iowa poll- ttcians haven't forgotten Stevenson's 350,000-vot* licking at President Eisenhower's hands here in ipij. It was one of the worst recorded Democratic reverses In a ESTES KEFAUVER: Fence- sitters uncrossed their fingers. "My boy* set up the chaiM. The put up about 1,100 that day, an most of them were filled. The sen tor won every Republican heart southwest Iowa." GOP leaders are among thosi who see Kefauver a greater vote getting menace to the Preslden than Stevenson in Iowa. Said on high-placed party official: "The senator's common touc just might work here. Stevenson I too smooth for us. But Kefauver 1 something else. He seems like an of us. lowans are not exactly sus picious. They simply like to look fellow over pretty good." Biding high, the Kefauver peopl are not making extravagant dele gate claims. They predict he'll tak "at least 12" of the 24 chosen to Chicago. Tills seems reasonable i the light of the fact he held nln Iowa delegates to the end of th 1952 convention. And the detache political viewers in the State sup port the present Kefauver claims. Should It happen that nelthe Stevenson nor Kefauver can muste the strength to take the Democrat! nomination at Chicago, Iowa' Democrats have no clear notio now where else they might turn. There's a smattering of talk fo I Gov. Averell Harrlman of New state replete with them over the | y orlc an( j Oov . G Mennen William long years. And friends of the former Illinois governor have to listen to complaints that he hasn't set foot In Iowa since the campaign began and evidently isn't going to. One ruffled Democrat ticked off a list of several speech dates for which he'd tried and failed to get Adlai. Kefauver, however, was here a bit more than a month ago, his eighth visit in the past five years. Impartial observers agree with the senator's supporters that he scored a smash with his patented homespun. Of a.bir lone said: iftair at Atlantic,: Ma- of Michigan. But It isn't substan tlal. At mention of Harrilnan, on Democrat scoffed: "Those who sa Harrlman are dreamers. He's go no appeal to the farmers at all." Sen. Stuart Symington of neigh boring Missouri might attract. H made a pretty good impression i a speech here not too long back, year ago his lame cropped u often, but then it faded. Now he back in the conversation. But this is looking well ahead. A the moment Iowa Democrats ar torn between Kefauver and Steven son, and the best judgment here 1 that the senator's coonskih Is near er the center of the ring than Ac lai's felt topper. Arkansas Is Represented In Pro-Segregation Group NEW ORLEANS <P) — Segregationist* from 11 states, including Arkansas, have formed the Citizens Councils of America. Jame* D. Johnson of Crossett, Ark., a former .state senator who ' head* the Arkansas Citizens Council, said yesterday the organization was formed so that the councils of the various states would have "one policy, and we'll all be pull- in f together." Arkansas was represented at the organizational meeting here Saturday by Johnson and attorney .Amis Guthridge of Little Rock, executive secretary of White Amer- ica Inc. State Sen.
