But was not the occasion itself, were not the far- mers themselves, more notable than the speeches? It was hard not to have this feel- ing, for the plowing match at Kas- son and the people who attended it gave you a sense of the real glory of the phrase is not exaggerated. The setting was rich farm, in marvelously beautiful, al- most park-like rolling country.

As Eisenhower turned toward In- dianapolis for another stop on his Midwest campaign swing, his aides made no attempt to conceal elation at the warm reception accorded him in Taft's home state. Taft himself had not joined in the chorus. He said in Washington he wanted to learn more of the general's views before deciding over the southern three-fourths of the state and temperatures were in the 80s during the forenoon. Highs of 95 were predicted for that sector later in the day. North of a line from Moorhead to Duluth, skies were on the cloudy side and temperatures were cooler.

Here, tens of thousands of farmers But sources close to the senator and their wives and children had said they had little doubt he would come far, to look over the new farm machinery as well as look over presidential candidates. And the people, if you consider them rightly, were as superb as their setting. A ten-year-old struck the note at the Methodist Ladies' excellent luncheon stand. He remarked that his hands were numb from testing a new tractor, and explained short- ly, but with pride, that he had persuaded his father to buy a dif- ferent make. "Naw, I'm not going to the speaking." he added. "I got more work to do." These people were hard-working, shrewd in their work and very prosperous tractors selling for close to S3.000 were going like hot help the general's efforts. "Sen. Taft is a was the way one of them, Roger W. Tracy, Ohio state treasurer and a member of the Taft camp, sum- med it up to newsmen. "I am certain he will give his active support to Gen. Eisenhower. Normal Disappointment "There was a normal disappoint- ment among all the people who worked for Sen. Taft that he was not nominated for the presidency. But we know that this is no time for a sit-down strike. It would jeo- pardize not only the national ticket and the principles we stand for but would injure the Republican state ticket." Eisenhower told a press confer- cakes. They were cheerful, totally he and Taft intended to meet unpretentious and very sure ofjsoon themselves. They were shrewd also about politics, and very far from ready to be swept off their feet by anyone.

Signi- ficantly, this was when Stevenson mocked Eisenhower for "plowing under" the farm plank in the Re- publican platform; warned of the reactionary farm views of the Re- publicans in Congress: and rhe- torically demanded how anyone could tell what farm policy would finally be adopted by "the two Republican This doubt about real intentions of the Republican party seems, in- deed, to be the real advantage of the Democrats and the big problem for Gen. Eisenhower and his high command. If one can base a judg- ment on the accidental evidence gleaned by talking to many of these Midwestern farmers here and in Visconsin, the natural inclina- tion of the farmers this time is to vote Republican. But every one of them is also conscious of his great gains in the last twenty years. The slightest suspicion that these gains may be taken away will pro- duce a stampede of farmers into the Democratic fold. The situation is made still more uncertain by another phenomenon, pithily explained by a sharp old party in dungarees, with a wallet that looked big enough to choke a horse.
