BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Ike Plans Fresh Plea for Support Of His Program Major Talk Tonight Will Open Meeting of 'Political Amateurs' By D. HAROLD OLIV ER WASHINGTON to — President Eisenhower will make a fresh ap peal for public support of his legis lative program in a .major television-radio address tonight. It Is scheduled for 8 p.m., EST. His immediate audience for a half-hour speech will be a group of self-styled "political amateurs," the National Citizens for Eisenhower Congressional Committee. This group opens a three - day meeting tonight with a congressional reception to be addressed by Vice President Nixon. A hurriedly arranged dinner will follow with the chief executive speaking. Up until late yesterday the President had been listed only for some brief informal remarks tomorrow. The White House said ABC would carry the speech direct on TV and radio. NB Cdirect on radio and by delayed film on TV (9:30 p.m., EST) and Mutual o n a radio rebroadcast (10:30 p.m., EST). Other coverage was subject to pending arrangements. The President's decision to go on the air and his choice of forum were significant. He has a strong attachment for the volunteer group that worked for him in his 1952 presidential race and is now engaged in a drive to marshal Democratic and independent votes for Republican congressional candidates pledged to the Eisenhower program. Also, the White House decision is in line with the President's June 2 news conference statements that enactment of his program is so important to the national welfare that he intends to give what he ermed his exclusive attention. He i has voiced concern with slow congressional action on the program. Five senatorial candidates which Citizens Committee officials say have been promised the group's support were announced today as Senators Kuchel (Calif), Cooper (Ky). Saltonstall (Mass). Ferguson (Mich) and Cordon (Ore). ANXIOUS FOR ADMISSION—Hundreds of Honolulu citizens show they're all for joining the U. S. as a 49th state.
