These are the points that strike this reporter, at any rate, at the conclusion of a preliminary campaign tour. And this is the case, in turn, because the contin- uation of the bitter battle for con- trol of the Republican party looks like one of the most significant fea- tures of this election, at least out here in the Mid-West. In the period after the con- vention, this Republican power struggle was waged behind closed doors at the Eisenhower head- j quarters in Denver. There was a moment, then, when Taft sup- j porters almost seemed to have j captured the right to direct Eis- j enhower's campaign. National Committeeman Chairman Arthur Sumnwrfield had brought in large numbers of such old guardsmen as Sen. Everett Dirksen, of Illinois, and State Chairman Wayne Hood, of Michigan. He had allied him- self with these old guard recruits in laying out the campaign plan. Early Schedule One result was an early cam- paigning schedule which required cant news. Princeton Research Service's re- porters went across the country to ask an accurate cross-section of the nation's voters (Republicans, Democrats and 1.
