Senator Carlson (R-Kan), latest of the Eisenhower camp's leaders to see the general at his North Atlantic Treaty Organization Head- qaurtcrs in Paris, apparently doesn't look lor any earlier action. Senator Duff (R-Pa), another of the leaders, has delayed making a trip to Paris which he had scheduled this month. DuH has let It be known he fully expeols to get a political go-ahead signal from the general when he does go. EdH-ard Bacon and Ralph Immel. Elsenhower backers in Wisconsin, told reporterr they would accept the general's silence In New Hampshire as an indication he Is In tl.e race and would proceed from there. The general's name can't go. on the Wisconsin ballot, however, un- lesi he files an affidavit that hi Is a candidate by January 15. Thus a technically iininstrupted slate might have to be organized for him. Petitions are expected to be filed to put Eisenhower's name on both the Republican and Democratic tickets. In New Hampshire.
