FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1947 BLYTHEVILLE (..I'.K.) COURIER NEWS iisenhower Still Doesn't Say No Presidential Boom Gains Momentum in Spite of Disavowals BY KRNESV BAKCKLLA (United Press Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Oct. 17. (UP) — ["he draft-Eiseiihower-for-Prcsidcut gue today responded to General Ike's latest disavowals of such a iKmnent by beating the drums Ben louder lor their man. Eisenhower boosters said they wouldn't take "No" [or an answer, even it thai is what the general meant to say—and they did not . think so. I What Eisenhower said yesterday 1 on two occasions, first through the Army's chtel of public relations, was that he "neither seeks nor dcsirns" political office and that lie "deprecates" the formation of Eisen- lioivcr-for-Presktent Clubs. Later at a pre-is conference in Manchester, N. H., the general personally told newsmen that "no soldier has any business being a politician." But Henry D. Spalding, national chairman of the league, was undismayed by statements. "I! anything," he said, '"Gem. Eisenhower's latest comments enhance the possibility o( his being available for a presidential dralt. 1 feel tliat his emphasis on 'soldier' indicates that when he becomes a civilian he may look upon the situation in a different light. I am confident that he would be willing to do his .y again if the nation should id him—and we think the nation needs him in the White House, Shuns Forthright Rejection Spalding and others noted pointedly that Eisenhower's disavowal did not follow the classic pattern of flat rejection by Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman in 1884 and iollowed last January by Eisenhower's predecessor as army chief of staff—Secretary ol State George C. Marshall. Sherman said: "J will not accept. il nominated and will not serve if elected." Marshall said: "I never could oe .drafted for any jiontical office." Two things were set straight yes- ^terday by Gen. Floyd Parks, Army public relations chief: 1—Eisenhower is "neither a Democrat nor a Republican—he has no politics." 2—Eisenhower does not plan to leave the Army and take over his new Job as president of Columbia University until "the middle of the first half of 1948"—probably "around .the first of April." Backed by Kanass Senators The presidential boom in Eisenhower's behalf has come largely Jroni Republicans. Eisenhower is from Kansas, a GOP state. Both Kansas senators—Clyde M. Reed land Arthur Capper—have endorsed ;the boom fo.r Ike. And Spalding, 'one of the moving forces of tlie league to draft Eisenhower, is an avowed Republican who says "Eisenhower would be rest suited to the Republican party." Political experts said that if Eif nhower does not leave the Army til next April, it would leave little ne for an Eisenhower campaign drive to get rolling—assuming the general changes his mind. But they felt this would not nec- e.ssnri!y preclude success, especially If the Republican convention in Philadelphia next June becomes stalemated over the issue of a nominee. As precedent, it was recalled that the late Wendell Willkie showed little or no early strength in 1940, yet captured the GOP nonn- German Women Replace Machinery All-PlastiC HoUSe Birmingham To Sell at $4,000 'or 14.000 wax offered today a.s a possible solution to the housing ------- -------- , ....... c „„,„., .„ shortage, if the designers can whip f ' ? * h< ? lc l'»»<'h"d through her the fuclory shortage elt le ">l'le I" her Jnw.
