They are not too hopeful about Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and North Carolina. . v ,. Elsenhower's friends already are looking ahead to his expected reelection contest four years from now/Some of them argue that unless he keeps the South In the forefront during the Interim, he cannot hope to have anv such Dixie support in 1956. These strategists remember what happened lo Herbert Hoover In 1932 alter he broke the South wide open in 1028 in the •battle.with Alfred E. Smith. Significantly, perhaps, Elsenhow- er picked Dixie for, his brief vacation. But his slay In Augusta, Qa., seemed lo Involve almost as much voit RS play. In an exchange of messages-with President Trumqn yesterday, Eisenhower said he will send some of his representatives to Ihe State »nd Defense Department immediately, as suggested by Truman. Truman Asked Conference Truman already had asked for • man to sit In with the budget planners and there were reports York stale superintendent of bunks here that Elllotl Bell, frmer New under Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, might be chosen for that role. Any »uch designation would whip up speculation around Bell ns a possible choice for secretary of the Treasury. Truman's new message went to Elsenhower after the outgoing President met with his Cabinet for the first time since the election. Ally. Oen. James McGrancry told newsmen the session was devoted to discussion of how to make the transition to n Republican administration as smooth as possible'. McOranery said that, while HID Cabinet didn't talk about the election, he thought the issue had been settled mostly on the basis of Eisenhower's personal popularity nnrt was not a repudiation of the Dem- 6"c"rntic party. Although McGranery said Truman did not discuss the election with his Cabinet, the President did express his views to Sen. Bcnton (D-Conn) during a half-hour meeting at the White House yeslenlay. "The President felt ' we (the Democrats) could have been a little better organized, but that It wouldn't have made an appreciable difference in the outcome, Bcnfon told reporters after the meeting, adding: "The President pointed out that Oov. Adlai Stevenson polled more votes than he, Henry Wallace nnd J. Strom Thurmond got In 1948 combined." Benton himself wns defeated for re-election although he drew 54,000 more voles than in his winning campaign two years ngo. teachers yesterday when ha told Jwm that while- public education the state's number one problem, :t'» not the only one facing his ncomlng administration. Somo 7,000 delegates k> the annual Arkansas Education Association convention here applauded Cherry's- remarks only once—when he said teacher salaries are too low and the "situation must be remedied." "We have public schools because we want to educate our children," .he governor-elect said, "nol because we want to give Jote to those who like to teach school." He urged the teachers to "approach our people from the standpoint of doing something for their children, not for us," "If we do this. If we show them their children are suffering, we'll ;et something done," he added. Cites Income Hike Cherry noted that Arkansu Is Isted among the state* showing Die greatest Increase in per capita Income since 1940. He termed It a •gratifying comparison" that the average salary for teachers "hnn kept pace with the state per cap- la Income." "But In spite of Uiis fact we lave not done enough and our average salaries, nnd also our per capita Income, are next to the lowest In the United Stales. This situation must be remedied," he said. It was this statement that drew applause. The majority of Cherry's speech was devoted to an appeal for a revision of Arkansas' tax structure. Without outlining specific changes 10 might propose, the Jonesboro Judge who becomes governor Jan. 1 jald "the assessed value of property 111 Arkansas has Increased about nine per cent In [ho past 20 years, . this is not in keeping with our progress."
