Hall: 'Talk Encouraging'
By BARB SHARP
i Staff Writer
After a conference with President Eisenhower, Republican Na
tional Chairman Leonard Hall declared he felt f'very much encour
aged" about prospects that the President will run for re-election.
Hall, however, indicated that the President himself did not say
what his decision will be about a second term. He predicted that Ike
will run in 1956 "if he feels able" and that he will defeat the Demo
cratic candidates by a larger margin than in 1952. ' ,
The conference with Hall was the President's first political dis-.
cussion since his heart attack Sept. 24.
Better Farm Information Asked
Secretary of Agriculture Benson called upon agricultural econo
mists and educators1 to help farmers by supplying them with adequate,
reliable economic information.
Speaking before the department's 33rd annual agriculture' outlook
conference, Benson declared that fanners', problems are very real
but "they are working out of their .difficulties with fewer hardships
than in any other postwar period in history."
Army-Air Squabble Grows
The feud between the Army and the Air Force over the Army's
growing aircraft fleet is expected to reach a showdown before Secre
tary of Defense Charles Wilson.
Denying any intent to duplicate the combat jobs of the Air Force,
the Army intends to change a 1952 agreement which it believes
gravely restricts its flying rights. The Air Force suspects the Army
of trying to establish its own air force.
The disagreement came, to a head last week when Donald
Quarles, Air Secrettary, revealed that -he had overruled an Air Force
general and permitted the Army to test a new aviation unit in the
Louisiana war games.
Cold War To Push South
Diplomatic experts in the U.S. predict that Communist strategy for
Round Two of the Cold War will be to hold the line in Europe and push
steadily south in the Middle and Far East.
' The new Communist plan is expected to involve trade concessions
and economic aid. A study of communist strategy by U.S. officials
Indicates tlhat this Communist policy is not the kind that can be
checked solely by a "policy of containment."
The Committee on International Policy of the National Planning
Assn. reviewing the situation in a report, said the cold war is in its
"most perilous phase."
His Own" and "I Wonder." Also
in 1947 he won first place in Bill

lar music categories.
Howard and his band have played
engagements at Chicago's Aragon
Ballroom, New York's Commodore
Hotel, New York's Capitol Theater
and Los Angeles' Cocoanut Grove.
Besides conducting the orchestra,
Howard plays the trombone 'and
guitar, sings and composes many
of the songs that his group plays.
He uses "Careless" as his -theme
song. A male trio also does some
of the vocal selections.
Howard started his career in 1!$39
when he sang "My Last Goodbye"
which was number one song on the
Hit Parade foi several weeks.
Shortly after World War II How
ard started his own band.
