TWO EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND. MD., MONDAY, OCTOBER 31> 1955 Dial PA-2.4600 for r^VANT Knowlaiul Says President Should Reveal His Plans Cow. Mariana* FoesHuntiiig For Candidate - WASHINGTON Wi — Sen Know larid (R-Calif) said today that if President Elsenhower isn't going to rUn again "the Republican party and, (he country are entitled _ to have • sufficient time to make 1 an '.appraisal of other possible candi dates." Knowland, who ha.s been mentioned as a potential aspirant for the GOP nomination, said in an interview he thinks anybody who wants - to be 'the party standard- bearer ought to be willing to test his strength in state primaries and conventions. To allow time for campaigning before such contests, he made it clear—although he didn't say so directly — he thinks Eisenhower ought to announce his intentions nol later than Jan. 1. Knowland declined to say whether he will he a candidate if Eisenhower steps aside. But he indicated strongly that if he docs decide to run, he may challenge Gov. Goodwin J. Knight for control of California's 70-vote delegation to next year's GOP convention. Knight said recently that if the President doesn't run, he will become '-a "favorite son" 'candidate although he said he wasn't making a serious bid for the presidential nomination. Knowland and Knight worked together earlier to elect a slate of California Republican parly officials over some who were listed as supporters of Vice President Nixon. But Associates said they doubted this arrangement would continue if Knowland bids for the nomi tion and Knight retains his,"favorite son" ambitions. Knowland said he isn't going lo tell his future plans until Eisen hower. recovers sufficiently 'from his heart attack to be in'a position to assess the political situation. Sen.. Kcfauvcr (D-Tenn) told a Democratic rally in Muskcgon, Mich., Saturday night that some Republicans in what he described as the party's "right wing" are "scheming to get President Eisenhower out of office before his term Aged Man ., Sir nek Hy Two Aiitds On e, Killed GHEEN'SBURG.
