Public Opinion, Money— Ike Sees 2 Pressures Ending Integration Fuss By ED CREAGH Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON W — The Eisenhower administration expects the feuding and fussing over school integration to die down before long for two main reasons: 1. Public opinion, President Eisenhower has said this on the record. 3. Dollars and cents. Eisenhower hasn't said this publicly, but it can be stated that he thinks business and industrial pressure will squelch violence, and that it will, in the not too distant future', force compliance with federal court antisegregation orders. 'One man close to the President puts it this way. "Suppose you wanted to build a plant in the South. Where would you build it — in Arkansas or in Missouri?" He meant, of course, in a state where troops have been called out or in a state where integration has started smoothly In other words, would you invest your money in a state wb£t*e there's trouble or in a state where peace seems assured? Powerful Influence This can't help influencing governors and other key officials of Southern states. Arkansas, the state where National Guard troops have been posted to keep some Negro pupils out of a high school in Little Rock, is a good example. It's a poor state, measured by- such things as industrial resources. It wants more industry. It has paid for a national advertising campaign to attract investment by outsiders. Whatever the local sentiment may be on the integration question, administration officials don't see how Gov. Orval E. Faubus can resist pressure to calm things down if he wants to raise living standards in his state. Nobody doubts that he does want that. This sort of pressure is by no means confined to Arkansas. Reporter William Hines told in last Sunday's Washington Star of a talk he had some months ago with a business leader in Winston- Salem, N.C. No Trouble • "Among us," Hines quoted the man as saying, "we represent probably 95 per cent of the financial resources of Forsyth County. We quietly passed the word that trouble here would be bad for business and we weren't going to have any. We have this thing so well locked up that a cab driver couldn't get a gasoline credit card without our say-so. "No, there isn't going IT be any trouble," There wasn't. And the Eisenhower people think similar pressure — maybe you could call it public opinion engineered from above — will prevail elsewhere in the South, allowing for different local situations and expecting no overnight miracles. Some of Eisenhower's critics say he should take a firmer stand against violence and come out unequivocally for integration. The Democratic Advisory Council said Sunday, for instance, that he "has lost an opportunity to exert leadership in behalf of law and order." Irked by Criticism The White House showed itself irked at this and a number or similar criticisms, not all of them from partisan sources. Plainly, the President's policy is to let things work themselves out 12 Times Herald, Carroll, la. Tuesday, Sept. 17, 1957 RED PARTY LOSING . . . John Gates, above, editor-in-chief of the Daily Worker, the Communist organ in the United States, says that discontent and dissension have sharply reduced membership and caused a crisis in the American Communist party. Gates maintains that membership declined by 45 per cent in the last year, a loss of some 7,000 members. among the people involved — confident that, in the long run, the American people will prove themselves law-abiding ^without any uncalled-for mixing in a difficult situation by people from Washington. If Eisenhower is right, his policy will go down in history as one of wisdom. If he is wrong, the responsibility for the stoning of children and for the dynamiting of schools—as in Nashville, Tenn.—may be laid at his door.
