WILSON (United Prtw SUff Correspondent) TOPEKA, K«n. 'Oct. 11. <UP) — The ZSsenhower-for-prcsldent hoc out here looks and sounds like it might havt some stop-Dewey angles to It. Until General Ike takes himself definitely out of the presidential picture or announces that he tan be had, the supporters of Gov Thomas E. Dewcy of New York ,vre talking pretty softly, If at all. No Kansas Republican leader would dare tie himself firmly to Dewey unless Eisenhower was out of the way. It Ike should get the G. o. P. nomination next year, President Truman wouldn't get enough votes In Kansas t'j be worth counting. That Is tho way they fell about Ike in this typical prairie state.

What ' '' they say Whether by intent or coincidence, this presidential boom for Ike has wliat fitted perfec.tly Into the strategy of all but the backers of Dcwcy. The Dcwey movement simply cannot get going in Kansas unless Ike steps out of the way. Otherwise the Dewey boom already would be well advanced here. The brakes on Dewey extend well Into Western about Taft out here is Republicans say about him pretty much everywhere — He would make a good president but would be a poor candidate. But Tad's political sex-appeal sccius to .be increasing and the longer Kansas or any other ,statc Is de- lick next year.
