Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - November 14, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news vol. 80, no. 269 these Days by George e. Sokolsky j Republican Twilight i tickets still it. Pleasant Iowa Friday evening november ii. 1�,8 by Carrier a per week by mail s3-so per year republicans Are discouraged because most of them assume that come what May they can make no recovery and that their party is dead. This i have heard regularly from 1932 to 1952 then came Eisenhower and the republicans were jubilant. The difficulty was that Eisenhower was Eisenhower and not a Republican or Democrat but just a Soldier who had become a popular figure. Now six years later. Eisenhower has been rebuffed by the american people who gave him in 1956 a plurality of More than 9.000.000 votes. The democratic landslide As Khrushchev interprets it is a repudiation of Eisenhower. But it is not quite As simple As that. Many local and personal situations affected that vote and there is no telling where it will come out. Extremely Wise and conniving persons Are already settling what will happen in 1960. They know precisely what the Sun spots will do to human sanity and what Khrushchev will do to the peace of the world and what kind of an Economy we shall be having under the pressures of the cold War or Vyn a hot War should it come. Nobody can be too Wise these Days and opinions Are Worth a dime a dozen because nobody can know for sure that he knows All the components of the equation. So one listens to synthetic and even pompous Wisdom with a sense of frustration.
