And the GOP faithful heard what some of them thought sounded like a political war whoop, not so much for 1962 as for 1964, from Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York. The Republicans spent the evening at 17 party get- togethers in 17 cities, tied together for an hour by closed circuit television. This was the warm-up and kick-off Ike Gives Fighting Pep Talk LOS ANGELES (AP) "It is heart which wins wars, said Dwight D. Eisenhower, "whether on the battlefields or in peace." He stood before a crowded hall Thursday night for what was sup- posed to be a brief warmup talk turned it into a ringing plea for fighting heart among his fel- low Republicans. "It is heart which keeps us said the fonner presi- dent, "without ever admitting de- feat." Off-Thc-Cuff Ike was the main speaker on x cross-country telecast studded with names of top Republicans. But the national TV audience did not hear the off-the-cuff pep talk ]ke delivered earlier to a throng estimated by GOP sources at persons. He stretched the three-minute greeting into seven minutes, much of it more spirited than his TV delivery. The audience at the "We Miss Ike" rally ch'ccred a full three minutes when he finished. Little Gaps Eisenhower told the gathering that the GOP should fight to cut down the percentage of the Demo- cratic edge even in areas where Republicans know they can't win. "We had a paper-thin defeat in said Eisenhower. "Still, it was a defeat. Any one of 100 things happening differently could have brought us victory. What we have is the job of plugging all the little gaps." Fighting Spirit It takes fighting spirit to do this said worked up to a real pitch. He added: "You yourself are more important than the dollars that you give, if along with the dollars you give yourself." The rally at Olympic Audito- rium wasn't primarily a fund rais- ing affair (although the hat, fig- uratively speaking, was for the congressional elec tion campaign of 1962. The oratory at the parties fol- i lowed the usual political pattern 'of swinging away at the opposi- tion, upholding the GOP cause 'with professions of confidence, land holding up the party as the I great hope of the nation for gel- Iting sound, sensible, responsible 1 government. This was the other side of the record the Democrats played on Jan. first anniversary of the New Frontier when they staged a fund-raising banquet that drew people to Washington from over the country. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower paced the parade of Republican speakers. It was the former presi- dent who accused the Democrats of profligate spending and "living on a flood of I.O.U.'s." He and other GOP oratorial talent said the opposition is reaching for a more powerful central government and controls. Eisenhower urged the Republi- cans to discard such tags as "liberal" and to get together, to start working hard and in unity. "With a nation and a world at he said, "let's roll up our sleeves and get It was Rockefeller, trying for another term as governor this! year and perhaps for the White House in 1964, who set off the heaviest blasts at President Ken- nedy and his administration.
