PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWi MONDAY, FEBRUARY », MB» Eisenhowers Sweet Relationship with the Demos Getting Tart By JAMES MARLON' Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower's relationship with the Democrats — sweet as sugar candy in his first two White House years — is developing tart taste. In those first two years, when the Republicans ran the show, the Democrats saved parts'of Eisenhower's program for him more than once. Mostly they watched and waited, a policy which paid off. The Republicans, with their In- traparty fighting, made a spectacle of themselves. It was probably that, more than any fervor for the Democrats, which induced the voters in 1954 to turn Congress over to the Democrats. The 1956 elections are 21 months away. Eisenhower looks like a good bet to run again. If he does and wins, he may do what he did in 1952: pull enough Republicans along with him to give his party control of Congress. The Democrats between now and then, if they hope to have any voter appeal, must establish a record of their own. They've already begun work on it. This inevitably means conflict with Eisenhower, who has an understandable desire to make a record of his own. The Democrats will probably continue to treat him politely. He's still immensely popular. But how they treat him personally and how they threat his program are two different things. With the new Congress not yet in session two months, the Democrats have made a quick start in opposition. They've jumped on his school aid and highway programs and may substitute their own. House Democrats have voted to give a $20 tax cut to everyone. When Eisenhower surprisingly— he's been careful not to make people mad at him personally—cried "irresponsibility," the Democrats taunted him. They charged his Republican-run Congress last year put through a tax cut for rich folks. The Senate, self-conscious after voting itself a pay raise, may go along with the tax reduction. For two years the Republicans made themselves look good with their arithemetic on all the security risks they said they fired from the government. The Democrats' IN POLITICS—Carol Ludington, 25. is Michigan's latest addition to the political world Originally a New York farm girl, the five-foot-three, hazel- eyed blonde will direct the Michigan Democratic Central Committee's spring election campaign for state educational offices and justices of the state's Supreme Court. are going to make a long investigation of that program. This is just a start. Since voters' memories can be unreliably short, the Democrats will have the job of jogging them with new investigations and new opposition. While they can be expected to go along with Eisenhower's foreign policy so long as it suffers no reverses, they'll have plenty to say about it. Oklahomans Offer Their Skin To Badly Burned Six-Year-Old OKLAHOMA CITY tf)—A 6-year- old boy named Lucky has offers from more than 60 persons to donate skin for a plastic surgery operation to help stive his life Lucky DeGeare, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe DeOeare, is suffering from third-degree tturns over 65 per cent of his body and has no skin covering over half his body surface.
