Cloudy and Colder Tonight And Sunday American Education Week Nov. 9-15 VOLUME 52, NO. 225 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 8, 1952 EIGHTEEN PAGES TODAY Ike May Remold His Party Sy JOSEPH and STEWART AUSOP WASHINGTON much will President Eisenhower face from the conservative wing of his own party, which fought him so ferociously at Chicago? In the afterglow of Eisenhower's triumph, it is too easy to forget that a great gulf still divides the Repub- lican party. It was Eisenhower himself, after all, who once confid- ed to reporters that he had be- come a candidate only because he was convinced that the election of Sen. Robert. Taft, who dominates the Republican conservatives, would be "disastrous." It is also easy to the fact that the kind of Republicans who follow the lead of Sen. Taft still make up a majority of the Republicans in Congress. Consider the Senate. There are 22 seated Republican senators who are by any reasonable test identified with the Taft wing of the party. Hicken- looper of Iowa and Bridges of New Hampshire have also tended Taft- ward, especially since the death of Sen. Arthur Vandenberg. Taftish Leanings Two of the newcomers (Potter of Michigan and Beall of Maryland) have evinced Taftish leanings, while two others, Goldwater of Ar- izona and Barrett of Wyoming, must be put in the question mark category. Finally, Langer of South Dakota, while totally unpredictable on domestic matters, is certainly no Eisenhower follower on foreign affairs. On the other side, 13 Republi- can senators and senators-elect may be safely described as "Eis- enhower Republicans." A nine- teenth will unquestionably be add- ed when Gov, Earl Warren of Cal- ifornia fills Vice President-elect Richard Nixon's seat. In short, although the Taft-ite majority has been somewhat re- duced, those who might be expect- ed to think and vote like Sen. Taft have a decided edge among Sen- ate Republicans. The same is un- doubtedly true of the House Re- publicans. This edge is reinforced, moreover, by ths committee chair- manships, most of which will go to Taft followers. All this would seem to suggest a showdown, sooner or later, be- tween President Eisenhower and the conservative wing of his own party. This is further suggested by the views on domestic and foreign affairs expressed by Eisenhower in the last weeks of the campaign, views which cannot have been music to the ears of Taft and his followers. And Sen. Taft in noted for the firmness of his convictions. Followed Victories Yet here it is instructive to cast the mind back to the thirties. Con- sider for example. President Franklin D. Roosevelt's bill for packing the Supreme Court. The identity of the Democratic floor leader at this time, who fought shrewdly and tirelessly for the court-packing bill, may surprise some people He was none other than James F. Byrnes. For six years, until Roosevelt's tight hold on his party was weakened by the defeat of the court bill and the Republican gains in the 1938 elec- tions, the Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill were in the main in- stinctively conservative men like Byrnes. Yet they manfully steer- ed the New Deal, about which they certainly had the strongest possi- ble private doubts, through the Congress. The reason was simple. Roosevelt's victories in 1932 and 1936, when he ran well ahead -of his party, gave him an almost un- challenged power and prestige among Democrats of all stripes. Those who defied Roosevelt almost .from the first, like Sen. Carter Glass of Virginia, were isolated and rendered virtually powerless. 1952 victory has been if anything a more striking personal triumph than Roosevelt ever enjoyed. Among the Taft Re- publicans, there are many coattail riders, including men like William Jenner of Indiana and perhaps ev- en Joseph R. McCarthy of Wiscon- sin, The coattail riders will not be eager to challenge the owner of the coattails, any more than Roose- velt wai seriously challenged from within his own party during his first years of triumph. Southerners Join Ike This is all the more true in Eis- enhower's case because the South- ern Democrats, who now have a dominating position in the bedrag- gled Democratic party, are more Eisenhower-minded than the Taft Republicans. The Southerners can be expected to join the Eisenhow- er Republicans to crush any seri- ous challenge to Eisenhower's lead- ership, particularly in the foreign and defense policy fields. Thus Eisenhower finds himself in a position of almost unique pow- er. He has the power to place his stamp indelibly on the Republi- can party, just as Roosevelt put his stamp, for good or ill, on the Democratic party. In order to use this power wisely, in order to ex- ercise the party authority which is the prerequisite of national lead- ership, Eisenhower must quickly master what he once called the "serious, complicated, and in its true sense noble" profession of pol- itics.

Eisenhower went ahead today with arrangements to name his representatives for a series of briefing conferences, which may begin early next week at the Pen- tagon and the State Department. The names of the men who will act as liaison officers for him have not been announced. He has been in communication by telephone with his advisers, however, and members of his staff here indicated they believe the talks in Washington can start Mon- day or Tuesday. In addition to dis- cussions in the Departments of State and Defense, Eisenhower is sending a representative to meet with the director of the budget in connection with the 1953-54 budget. Eisenhower appears to be under some pressure from President Tru- man to act quickly. Truman first reminded the gen- eral that the next budget is being prepared and said the figures are ready for examination, while being taken to a hospital and j jje.xt, he sent an Air Force two others were injured critically j coionel to Augusta, where Eisen- in a train-automobile collision here j hower is on holiday, with a mes- Friday night. j The dead: 4 Killed, 2 Hurt In North Dakota Train-Car Crash MOFFITT, N.

President- elect Dwight D. Eisenhower is ex- pected to name a possibly a his Cab- inet in recognition of the un- precedented vote he rolled up in Dixie. While the general hardly has had time since his landslide victory in last Tuesday's election to make progress toward picking any Cabi- net member, friends here said they believe he will make it clear by such an appointment that he intends to deal the South in on his administration. Eisenhower's three top sup- porters in the South were Gover- jnors James F. Byrnes of South j Carolina, Robert Kennon of Louisi- 'ana and Allan Shivers of Texas. None of them may want a Cabinet post, but all might be consulted about the selection of a Dixie colleague. Woman A Texas woman, Mrs, Oveta Gulp Hobby, co-publisher of the Houston Post, already has been mentioned as a possibility if a woman is chosen. Mrs. Ivy Priest, director of the Women's Division of the GOP Na- tional Committee said yesterday Eisenhower had assured her be would appoint women to key gov- ernment posts, possibly including the Cabinet.

The AEC has kept mum thus far on the scheduled autumn tests. The blast, the letter writer said, was viewed through dark glasses and "appeared a huge orange ball, which grew larger and brighter until it appeared as if no dark glasses were there at all." Intense heat was felt almost im- mediately, the writer continued, adding: "The ball of fire started to rise and slowly lose its intensity. We took off our glasses and saw water vapor suddenly form around the column. Then it rushed into the base of the column and up, clear- ing the air so that you could see countless tons of water rushing skyward. "The column went up and up and finally mushroomed. About three minutes later, the report, like a nearby cannon shot, hit us and was followed by several seconds of dull rumbling. "Then the mushroom expanded into a free halo, growing with tor- nado-like speed and reaching near- ly over our ship before it appeared to cease growing. Then it appeared to connect itself to the main column by a web of filmy vapor. "All we could do was stand there and gasp in amazement and awe at the enormous size' and force released before us.

These strategists are looking at the vote polled by the general in Dixie as the possible basis for re- vival of the Republican party ia an area where it has been only a skeleton organization in the past. Eisenhower carried Virginia, the director of the budget. The general's press secretary, James C.
