Speck's Arrogance Reflection on Party What Jefferson W. Speck, the GOP's gubernatorial standard bearer in Arkansas, hoped to achieve by his recent bonst- ful statements on his status, should Eisenhower win, IE beyond us. There seems to be no recognizable political strategy in his utterance. Tie claims that if Eisenhower achieves the presidency, he (Speck) will be the "federal governor" of Arkansas even if Frands Cherry is the state's elected governor. This makes, no sense, even in the flighty realm of political talk. Mr. Speck further boasted that if the Democrats of Arkansas want anything from the federal government under Eisenhower, they will have to come to him. He has thus set himself up as a potential dispenser of patronage for Republicans and dispenser of political sops and condolences for Democrats. What his plans are for attacking the state capitol and annexing the elected governor's desk, he has not mentioned. Mr. Speck's statements of late seem diametrically opposed to his earlier expressions in favor of a two-party Arkansas. No thinking person, Democrat or Republican, cares to have would-be Pendergasts, Democrat or Republican, prate about their Neo-Tammaiiy plans while seeking high office. Mr. Speck has not only failed to frighten liis opposition, he has done his own party an injustice. We are inclined to agree with those members of his own party wlio have invited him to resign as a gubernatorial candidate. As the Republican Party in Arkansas is attempting to rise to its knees, Jeff Speck, apparently dizzied by the still-faint fumes of a possible GOP national victory, has kicked it squarely between the eves. SATURDAY, SEPT. », 199» Ike Takes Necessary Risk In Avoiding Specific Issues It is apparent from the strategy General Eisenhower is employing in his first -whistle-stop tour that he intends to avoid specific issues as much as he can. His aides earlier had made it plain this was to be Ike's approach — to hammer away at the administration on the one hand and on the other to promise a return to what he sees as the fundamentals of good government. This strategy is being relied upon in defiance of those who have counseled that Elsenhower could not win the election without carefully spelling out what he would do as President. When he goes to the rear platform of his train, or mounts a rostrum in front of some city hall, ho doesn't talk about the Taft-IIartley act or FEPC, nor docs he outline a bold legislative program of his own. He talks about faith, and clean government, and thrift, and efficiency. He stresses youth and its opportunities in a free land. The general's advisers surely understand the risk of this kind of campaigning. He is matching Home and Mother against a party which has done a great many specific things in the past 20 years and now promises to do more. Men may argue about the quality of Democratic performance, but they do not .say things have not been done. In pursuing this course, Ike and his nides appear to be counting on two things: the general's evident popularity and the conviction that discontent is widespread and people want a change. At this stage no on8 dares guess whether they urn right or not. That there is genuine interest in the general is unquestioned — his crowds have been immense from the moment he began serious campaigning. Maybe tin's reflects deep faith in Eisenhower as a man — faith that will be translated into votes in November. Possibly, too, the dissatisfaction with President Truman's administration runs deep. The mood of the people in such matters is extremely difficult to measure. What they say does not always indicate accurately how they will vote. Either one or both of these factors could be potent enough to elect the general, ^ke's men think the odds favor their tactics. But even if they fell otherwise, they might have no real alternative course. For Ike just is not well versed on the specifics of major domestic issues and he will not take positions he does not understand. * So what he is doing is a necessary risk. Views of Others The Fork in the Rood $&*. fAFT Peter Edson's Washington Column — Dixie Editors Say Ikes Stand Is Weak on South's Pet Issues Congressional Frank There U a si>ecjal mailing privilege granted to members of the Congress and other members of the government called the "franking" privilege. It means simply that mall of an official nature can be sent free. When used by members of the Congress it Is called "the congressional frank." The privilege is increasingly abused. The latest example of abuse Is an especially atrocious one, perpetrated by Senator Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin. The large nuinlla envelop has In the upper left-hand corner: United states Senate. Public Document, Free. In the upper right-hand corner Is a facsimile signature: Joe McCarthy, and under tt u. S. S., meaning United States Senator. The envelope contains a reprint from a magazine called The Freeman. The reprint Is "McCarthylsm." A Review o[ Senator McCarthy's Book, by John Chamberlain. The review Ls In effect a defense of McCarthy. On the back of the reprint is a three-quarter page advertisement of the Freeman. Senator McCarthy has here used the congressional frank privilege to promote a review of his book, a defense of himself, and the magazine In which the review appeared. No matter what the book was about, or by whom, the mailing of tills review and advertisement free is about as flagrant an abuse of the franking privilege as Is likely to he found. Such abuses are one reason the Post Office Department shows unnecessarily large deficits, to be paid for by the taxpayers. —Lynchburg Advance WASHINGTON —(NBA)— G e n. Dwight D. Eisenhower, as the Republican candidate for President, will have lo come out much more strongly in favor of states' rights on the tidclands oil isf?ue. the FEPC and all other civil liberties questions on his next swing into Dixie, If he Is to win any electoral votes In the South. This is the concensus of a score of southern newspaper editors and political reporters In key cities of a dozen states.

Feler Edson Mnson and Dlxon line. This is token as a guide for the Indies the GOP candidate should follow when he invades Virginia and North Carolina at the end of tho month and swings over as far as Texas In October. With few exceptions, there was general agreement that Ike did himself some good on (he first trip. On whether he did himself enough good to carry any southern states In November there was wide disagreement. Turned Stone Cnlrf Frederick Snllens, editor of the Jackson (Miss.) Dally News, pooh- poohs the whole - Idea that Elsen- hower can carry anything in the South. Southerners of both parlies turned out in large numbers to see and hear the general, he admits. But he says "they turned stone cold when the GOP candidate, touching briefly on clvi! rights, declared *A1I men are created equnl.' And they went Into a deep freeze a few days later when Eisenhower appoint a Nc- declared he would gro to his cabinet." Along the same line. C. P. Liter of the Baton Rouge (I^a.) State Times -ind Advocate declares. "Eisenhower faces nn almost impossible fight here unless he can show he is a true friend of the South. He will have to bear down on the tidelands Essue and show how it would slow efforts to improve etUi- cationnl opportunities and provide better salaries in all schools." Want Ike to Get 'Tougher' "Texas wants a fighter," says Editor Walter R. Humphrey of the Fort Worth Press. "His southern swing showed the first real indication Ike would pitch in to give corruption and extravagance Issues the kind of stump treatment they deserve/ 1 "When he comes back," ndds Ed Pooloy of the El Paso Herald- Post, "he should bo tougher than ever ami Vie should hammer on the mess in Washington and the bloody ;:;i i; r if ice in Korea,'' In the opinion o( Martin Andersen of the Orlando (Fla.) Morning Sentinel, Eisenhower's first southern tour "amazed" everyone. "Senator George Srnathers' endorsement of Stevenson following Ike's tour brought storms of protests from his former friends and backers. Ike's second lour should stress duty to be American first and n party member second." To this Loyal Phillips of the St. Petersburg Independent contributes this coaching: "He should get more definite, and not let up on 'the mess, 1 He should again go for sta t es' rights in oil and go very easy on FEPC/' Democrats Disgusted In a careful appraisal of the southern political situation, James E. Mills of the Birmingham (Ala.) Post-Herald points out that "Many regular Democrats here are disgusted and lalk of going fishing or staying home on Nov, 4. Thnt would be small heJp to Eisenhower and Nixon because their only hope in the South is to win large-scale Democratic support." "Friends of Eisenhower are on the spot here," says Jack Williams of the Way cross (Ga.) Journal- Herald. "They like him personally, but when they come to the voting booth, they'll probably be Democrats." Quimby Melton, Jr., of the Griffin (GiO Daily News, however, thinks "Eisenhower will get more Georgia votes than any other Republican in history. But he should lake a stronger stand against FEPC."

Some See Outside Chance "Eisenhower will get a substan tial vote in North Carolina, ad mils Reed Sarratt of the Winston Salem Journal and Herald, "bu the state is snfely in the Demo cratic column." "The South's traditional hospital ity should not be confused with its votes," warns L. S. Henibree o the Anderson IS. C.) Independent But George A. Buchanan of tin Columbia Record thinks that i Iko were to come to South Caro Una, "there is an outside chance that he might carry the state against all odds." In Virginia, M. Carl Andrews of the Roanoke World-News repeats that "Ike must tnke a more definite civil rights stand to carry this state, but his chances are good. Cleavage between Virginia and Democratic National Committees is still unhealed." Edward J. Meeman of the Memphis Press Scimitar thinks Eisenhower's first trip south exceeded the expectations of his supporters. If the general would come to the state, "there's a good chance for him to carry Tennessee," for the Terry Moore, free of her Columbia contract, is turning down all at all could do It. The same thing is true of certain high dives at the bridge table. There's always a logical explanation later on. but they still look pretty good. For example, take the beautiful play made recently In a rubber game by Perry L. Ruston. Huston opened the king of clubs and was allowed to hold tbe trick. He continued clubs, and dummy's ace won. Now declarer ied a iow trump from dummy to the ace of spades in his own hand, and Ruslon executed his high dive by dropping the king of spades. There was a logical explanation of course. Declarer surely would have tried a finesse If he had held the jack of spades. Since no finesse was anticipated, East must hold the Jack of spades. South's bidding indicated that he held only four spades, so Easl was marked with three trumps Hence the defenders would still get the same single trump trick whether or not Ruston dropped his king. The full beauty of the play became apparent later on. East was Republicans'and other Ik's support- ?™ n[ '.. t ° w ! n his J ack of spades In ers "are now united," he declares. No Tidal Wave (or Ike At the other end of the state, !n the TVA. country, Political Editor toward B. Smith of the Knoxville News-Sentinel reports that Eisenh o w e r's "anti-public-power remarks at Boise and his farm parity position haven't been well received by Democrats wanting to vote Republican." Eisenhower "scared Democratic leaders in Arkansas," says C. P. Byrns of the Southwest Times-Record. But this editor calls attention to the angle that "Most perennial Republicans in the South are Taft men, not yet very entusiastic. Ike needs to pep them up." Sen. Thomas R. Underwood of Kentucky, who is also editor of the Lexington Herald, belittles this further with the observation that, "General Eisenhower's southern swing has failed to upset the South politically. No tidal wave of landslide proportions is developing. In Kentucky. General Eisenhower has not yet picked up the strength that developed for Wendell Winkle." lead a heart, p.nd this gave Vest two heart tricks in additioi the club and the trump. Thus leciarcr was set one trick. Now see what happens if Wes eeps the king of spades when de larer plays the ace of that suit outh leads a second spade, am Vest must win with the king. Now, what? If West leads hearts South's king will win a trick. I West leans anything else, South ?ets in to draw the last trump Then South can run the diamonds discarding one heart from he dummy. Thus only one hear :rtck is lost, and declarer mak his contract.
