ABSTRACT
The article reports the prospective opponent of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower in the next presidential elections. Two candidates are in pursuit, Adlai Stevenson and Averell Harriman. Both of them hope to get the uncommitted votes in their side. The principal argument the Harriman organization intends to use in persuading the uncommitted groups to back Harriman instead of Stevenson is that Stevenson cannot win against Eisenhower. But the argument has been substantially countered by Stevenson. Efforts are being made to gather the votes of older people who are a substantial part of the population.
