  • Description

    The man who began his career as the boy (ROLL CUE FILM: 16 NEG SIL) governor of one state--may have ended it in a futile try at becoming the middle-aged governor of another.

    President Eisenhower dropped by Gettysburg by helicopter yesterday to vote in the Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial primary. And this morning, we have the results. Twenty years ago, Minnesota elected 31-year-old Harold Stassen its governor. Yesterday Pennsylvania Republicans decided against 51-year-old Stassen as its candidate for governor. Of course, we don't know how the president voted. Whether for the winner--organization-backed Arthur mcConigle, a Reading pretzel manufacturer, or for Stassen, who lately served as his special adviser in disarmament matters. McGonigle's victory was decisive--better than two to one.
