PAGS EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWB BATURDAT, JANUARY 18, 19M Ike Will Continue To Court Personal Ties with Solons WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower reportedly will continue with a series of White House stag dinners in an effort to knit closer personal ties with Republican organization members from all sections of the country who will be active in the 1956 campaign. Political associates said ihe President plans to invite GOP -stale chairmen and national committee members to the dinners for an exchange of views on notional and local problems. These affairs have been going on several months with business men usually predominant among the guests. Recently, however, they have taken on a political flavor in which the President has welded closer contacts with the men who will be influential in their slates in helping select the party's nominee and in campaigning for him after i the 1956 convention. . While some of those who attend- j ed apparently came away with the impression Eisenhower is giving more thought to the possibility of running again than he has in the past, direct reference to that subject seems to have been avoid t:\ at two dinners held this month. The President was represented as having brought up at Monday's dinner his hopes to mould the party into the progressive-moderate pattern he hns said it ought to follow. At thai, dinner, he brought in Key Republicans from the midlands, including Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin and loWa. Oq hand also were Republican National Chairman Leonard W.

Body of World Speed Record Holder Found LOS ANGELES (*>--The body of world speed pilot James B. Verdln, 36, who balled out of his bantam jet bomber six miles above the earth Thursday, hns been found after perhaps the biggest search ever made on the Mojave Desert. The Douglas Aircraft Corp. test pilot lay Jii miles from the wreckage of his A4D Skyhawk when searchers reached the body yesterday. The plane wreckage hud been found the night before, 15 miles northwest of Vlctorvllle and JOO miles northeast of here. Verdln's unopened parachute was still strapped to his body. The plane's ejection seat lay nearby indicating' the pilot had cleared the seat as he began his 30,000-foot fall to earth. Col. Howard Knapp, surgeon general at Edwards Air Force Base near the crash scene, said Verdln apparently died on impact rather than aloft. It could not be determined immediately why Verdin was unable to get the chute open, Douglas officials said. Neither was it learned at once if he was wearing: a standard-type parachute, requiring a manual pull to open it. or an automatic type pre-set to open at a given altitude. More man 2,000 ground searchers and scores of Air Force, Navy, sheriff's and Douglas planes fanned out over a 10,000-square- mile area in the 23-hour search for Verdin after he tersely radioed Edwards AFB ,"I'm in trouble. I'm leaving." . . He didn't have time lo say what the trouble was. He was testing the skyhawk in the 30,000 to 35,000-foot altitude range. The plane, called the "Mighty Midget" by Navy fliers, is capable of flying 600 m. p. h. A former Navy lieutenant commander.
