Other Republican hopefuls doubtless wish Ike would hurry up to New York and busy himself being president of Columbia University, especially New York Gov. Thomas E Dewey. There will be, a Dewey slate of delegates in the New Hampshiie primary and a slate pledged to former Gov. Harold E. Stassen of Minnesota. The feeling around Washington is that Ike would be a glamorous political figure with vote appeal beyond that of others mentioned for the GOP nomination. Dewey's strategy- hns been to let tlie nomination come* and 'get him, as it did in » afler primary triumphs In various I' states. If Ike sweeps the New Hampshire primary the polling will not have done Dewey's chances any good, or Stassen's either. Drums Roll tn Pennsylvania The big drums are also beginning to beat for Ike in Pennsylvania, rme of the fat and dominant states. His supporters there announced I art light that his name would be ilaced on the ballot In Pennsylvania's April 27 primary. There Is a lot of pratrie states sentiment for Ike, too. If Republicans were sure they could itck President Truman next- November they probably wouldn't live Elsenhower & second thought H« la an unknown quantity, politically. The Republicans got stuck that way in 1B40 when the late Wendell Winkle kidnapped the presidential nomination right fron; under noses of men who thought they were * running: thi Republican National Convention. The facts seem to be that from Kansas to Pennsylvania R lot of Republicans are scared. They are blasting Mr. Truman's proposals to Congress as a re-hash of the New Deal but they cannot forget, either, that for many long years there was political magic In similar messages And the Republicans desperately ^•;\ut to win this time. m To a lot of them Ike looks like a ^sure /ire winner. The argument used in his behalf Is that a sure thing is the best thing in politics. If Ike wins New Hampshire he may be hard to stop. ! (U.P.iP. B.
