PAGE TEN BLYTHKV1LLE (ARK.) COURIEk NEWS MONDAY, APRIL 7, 1MI Taft, Eisenhower Appear Headed For Deadlock at Convention By JACK BELL CHICAGO WV-WiUi three months of the campaign to go, Sen. Uo!>- ert A. Taft of Ohio and Gen. Dwight D. Elsenhower appear to be heading toward a possible deadlock at the Republican presidential nomination convention here in July. Although fewer than oil-fourth of th delegates have been chosen, a recent trend toward splitting state support between the two can- iticians believe they have a horse didates indicates they are running race on their hands nnd some of since he probably will get most of Ohio's 50. But Eisenhower has the, promise of most of New York's 90 voles in reserve and he probably will pick lip most of New Jersey's 33 in an April 15 primary. TnJt's niuno remains on the ballot there despite his attempt lo withdraw it. Some recent state convc-ntlon balloting has indicated Republican pol- the sort of race that may tie the national convention into knots. Taft apparently will get a lift by collecting most of Illinois' 50 delegates in Tuesday's primary. If he wins the preferential (popularity) contest despite a \vritc-cam- palpn for Elsenhower, there will be no doubt of his collecting '.he slate's additional 10 nominating votes at an April 25 convention. What h» i*te In Illinois and In a otale convtauon Saturday in Kentucky could put Taft near the j 30C mark In delegates by ihe' week's end. Eisenhower apparently .stilt will be below the 100 mark, although he seems likely to get Ihe lion's share of Kansas' 22 in n Thursday convention and an uncertain number In Kentucky.
