Daly say Kennedy faces problems when stumping nation by Jack Bell Washington uhf president Kennedy May have to develop some political Blind spots in campaigning for democratic candidates for the Senate and House. While the president can go All out in Praise of the record of party office holders in several states he will have to Overlook some glaring defections from his new frontiers program in urging the elections of others. In any widespread campaigning Kennedy May find himself calling for the defeat of republicans who at times have Given him vital support on issues he considers important to the Success of his administration. As a Case in Point Kennedy will have to gloss Over the solid Back ing Given to him in International crises when he campaigns against i Senate Republican Leader Everett m. Dirksen in Illinois.
