WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 19M BLTTrTEVILLi: (ARK.) COURIER NEWi PAGE THREU Ike Played Relaxed Politics In Campaign Opening Speech »y JAMES MARLOW AP News Analytt WASHINGTON (AP) — Politics is like a piano. How you play it depends on how you feel. If you feel pretty confident, you can play it relaxed. That's how President Eisenhower is playing it right now. , , , His speech last night, in effect opening his campaign for re-election, was a concentrated collection of generalities and high-sounding principles. His whole talk was about "people and principles." That he never got specific even once about people or principles or anything else was probably the most significant point in his talk to the Republican strategy conference here. He was even nice to the Democrats, acknowledging they are just like Republicans in their loyalty and devotion to the nation and differ only in methods, traditions and philosophy. Since politicians can build a whole campaign around attacks on their opponents' methods and philosophy—as Eisenhower himself did against the Democrats in 1952 —he left himself plenty of room for future maneuver. Apparently he doesn't think he has to get down .to cases yet. To be able to launch a campaign on the vague plan he used last night is a kind of political luxury. It's a luxury Eisnhower can enjoy lor a while, at least. He doesn't have to worry about getting the Republican nomination. He has, it sewed up. And not until their August convention will the Democrats pick a candidate to throw against him. All Eisenhower sees in front of him now are two Democrats—Adlai Stevenson and Estes Kefauver —battling each other around the country for their party's nomination . After the conventions Eisenhower may have to get rough, talk on the issues, be specific, and make promises. Perhaps even then he won't feel he has to do much of 'that. He already has said that because of his heart condition he won't go stumping the country. He may do what President Roosevelt did to Republican Thomas E. Dewey in 1944: try to brush off the opposing candidate with a few relaxed speeches, de- 'pending for victory on public devotion and appreciation. It will be unusual if he gets by as easily as Roosevelt did. Roosevelt had one thing in his political favor which Eisenhower lacks: there was a war and a great public reluctance for change right: then. And this year both Democrats and Republicans are anxious—because of the strong feeling about racial segregation—for the northern Negro vote and the white southern vote. They also are wooing the farm vote. Eisenhower addressed himself to the farmers Monday night. Last night, because of his references to equality, no matter what the race, about civil rights and desegregation. If he was, he never said so in so many words. That he said wh.it he vaguely did may have been some comfort—but perhaps not much—to the Negroes who want segregation in the South ended fast. At the same time Eisenhower's very vagueness in this field could hardly have antagonized, white southerners toward the Republican party. It's doubtful he can remain this vague on this issue to it can be assumed he was talking the end of the campaign.

The underskirt, described as a "Masterpiece of engineering," involves three petticoats. Stevenson Denies He Made 'First Ballot 1 Statement SOUTHERN PINES, N-C. (#) Democratic presidential aspirant Adlai E. Stevenson, scheduled to fly to Pittsburgh from here today, says a news story quoting him as saying he intends to win the nomination on the first ballot was "wholly Inaccurate.' ' But, said Stevenson, "it te a good idea." He added: "I don't know much about the history of national conventions, but I doubt if many candidates have been nominated on the first ballot in contested conventions. "I've been wracking my brain trying to think of what I might have snid to give the young man that impression. If it is a reporter making a prediction, let's hope it comes true." The report appeared in Monday papers after an interview here. The Democratic party's 195'2 standard bearer will undertake a lound of preprimary stumping in Pennsylvania today and tomorrow. Stevenson will go to Washington this weekend to address the American Society of Newspaper Editors at a Saturday luncheon session, his Chicago office said. Stevenson had taken a four-day rest at the farm home here of his sister, Mrs. Ernest Ives. • It is possible, you know, to drift into illness. Don't make the mistake of neglecting early symptoms.

(IF) — A little pill made from sun-drenched fruit trees is being studied In the desert here to determine whether it has the power to prevent sunburn. Scientists from the University of Arizona and the University of Oregon hope the drug, psoralen, will speed the sometimes painful process of tanning. Psoraleu, derived from fig and citrus trees, has been used by the Egyptians for centuries to deepen skin pigmentation. Last year the scientists realized they were a long way from success when eight volunteer convicts at the state prison here went to the hospital with severe sunburn. But Dr. Thomas B. Pitepatrick, University of Oregon dermatologist said he is encouraged by the latest results.
