He has remained In the background, apparently because of charges by Ihe Taft forces Hint he engineered Eisonhox'.'cr's nomination and was dominatnif; his campaign. Taft leaders such as Thomas E. Coleman of Wisconsin said they counted In the pre-convention campaign on what they called an ; antl-Dcwey sentiment among Republicans of the Midwest. If Dewcy were asked to. take a more Important role In the campaign Ihun he thus far has assumed publicly. Jl was the con- census at Elsenhower headquarters here that he would he asked to appeal primarily to the voters in the Eastern Seaboard states. Thnt Eisenhower's backers regard tho election results as touch- and-go was demonstrated when Gov. Sherman Adams of New Hampshire toM the Citizens for Elsenhower-Nixon meeting in a two-day session here that without their help "all mishit be lost." Adams, who has been described by Eisenhower as ins "personal boss" on campaign strategy, predicted In a speech before the group that Independents would decide the election. Eisenhower scheduled a closed session appearance before the group today. Ife planned to spend the remainder of the day in diaft- ng speeches for a Midwestern whistle stop tour on which he will depart tomorrow. Adams contended that despite all of the moves made to effect Republican unity, "the soul is Eisenhower's" In the campaign. In March, Adnnis hntl called Taft nn "Isolationist" and had claimed Eisenhower was in the opposite camp on International affairs.

Eisenhower's views on the foreign policy lo be pursued in Europe and the rest of the world, but I think it Is fair to say, that- our differences ale dlffer- cnrahrjpf degree."

The society wu*it ln*o the whole subject in Its September journal. It said it could not buy any of the current, flying saucer reports but conceded It would "rather like to Ijflievc that space ships were already flying in the neighborhood of the earth, even if they were not our own." The society said it prepared to "retain nn open mind, tinged with skepticism" until one of its members spotted a saucer. A few members ha ve wri It en in, however, saying the society would do well to avoid being too Ilippant on the subject. The society itself is extremely space-minded, it was founded in 1933 to promote the collection and spread of knowledge dealing with possible flights to other worlds. Its members study everything from astronomy and rocket engine construction to the social, political and legal problems that will arise If humans do make it to Mars some day. Within Its ranks are many prominent British and foreign scientists. The society is disturbed by the fact that flying saucers show no uniformity. According to the counts of observers they come in" -| H wide variety of sines and J shapes, although the standard model usually spits green fire.
