Wednesday Evening, Am «.! Hoosier Democrats Seeking Candidate Who Can Unseat Senator Will Jenner INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—Indiana Democrats are sniffing the political air these days in search of a candidate who can knock William E. Jenner off his U.S. Senate seat next year. The names of at least a half dozen prospects have popped up and the field is still wide open. In the Republican camp, nobody is breaking his neck challenging the fiery Jenner for the nomination, and it could be that the Bedford lawmaker will glide through next summer's Republican state convention unopposed. Democrats who may battle for tfie nomination include national chairman Paul Butler of South Bend and former Agriculture Secretary Claude Wickard, the Camden farmer who lost the 1956 Senate race to Sen. Hcmer Capehart by more than 200,000 votes. Butler Is Waiting Others mentioned are Mayors Phillip Bayt of Indianapolis and Vance Hartke of Evansville, former U.S. Atty. Marshall Hanley of Muncie, and former Congressman Andrew Jacobs, Indianapolis. The names of Phillip Willkie of Bushville, son of the late Wendell Willkie, Rep. Charles Halleck, and former Gov. George Craig have •been batted, about as possible Jenner challengers in Uie GOP. But nobody is eager, and State GOP chairman Robert Matthews said his talks with party leaders produced "no opposition whatsoever" to Jenner. Butler told the United Press he might wait until "February or March of 1958" to decide if he plans to 'seek the nomination. He said "the prospects for Democratic success" will determine his decision and admitted there was 'just a little skirmish" in party ranks. Skillen Cites Scandal Wickard has indicated he might not run if Butler jumped in. Wickard, campaigning on a program of farm price supports at 100 per cent of parity, led the Democratic ticket in 1956 although losing to Capehart. Democratic State Chairman Charles Skillen said he believed the political cycle will swing to his party in November, 1958. • "The Republicans have made enough mistakes, both national and state," Skillen said. "You can't fool the people." He cited tax increases, a high national budget, Indiana's highway scandal, and the fact that "Jenner has been inconsistent with Eisenhower." Matthews said Jenner could beat any of the Democratic candidates "fairly easy." Jcnner, a dynamic orator noted for his anti-Communist activities and his anti-Eisenhower stand on foreign aid, first was elected to the Senate in 1944. He was elected to his first full six-year term in 1946 and in 1952 he defeated former Gov. Henry Schricker for his second term by more than 100,000 voles. Matthews conceded the highway scandal may be on voters' minds next year. But ho said the fact "the HanTtley administration is doing everything in its power" to expose it "may have the adverse effect of helping the parly." As for Jenner's Democratic opponent: "There hasn't been a name mentioned that I think- could cause serious trouble," Matthews said. Flora Miss Carolyn Ann Murphy, soph- more at Butler University, has been initiated into Chimes, junior women's honorary 'organization. Members are selected for their participation in activities, leadership, and scholastic standing. Carolyn is the daughter of Mrs. Ruth Murphy, local teacher. Installation of church officers was held at the morning worship service in the Methodist church held in the home of Mr. and Mrs. | Wayne Beckner, Carl and Carol George Flora, southeast of here, | Humbarger, Charles and Judy Sni- Wednesday evening. But Skillen said flatly 1958 would | June 2. be the year of Jenner's downfall.
