But it is not in the nature of politics that it ever be totally adjourned. It was by careful design that President Lyndon B.

But the minds of GOP leaders coast to coast will nevertheless be churning away on the big matter of which man to choose for 1954 presidential nominee. The surface quiet makes very practical sense. Political speeches are undecorous in the aftermath of great personal tragedy. In this instance, they might also have proved stunningly empty. For the Republicans have lost their established target, the late president, and cannot yet focus effectively on the new one. In a very real sense they have nothing to talk about. Naturally they will not have too many weeks to wait for ammunition. As soon as they see the President's budget and hear his specific 1964 proposals, they will be off to the races again. But even now, beneath the surface, the speculations on 1964 go forward. In this enforced hiatus, they will perhaps be more reflective than otherwise.
