ABSTRACT
The article focuses on political campaign in Springfield, Illinois. Adlai E. Stevenson is both candidate and campaign manager. Wilson Wyatt is his right-hand man. The two work closely together. There are no other major advisers or political managers here. The only other people here are about a dozen young staff men. Some are experts on policy such as Arthur Schlesinger Jr. and others are political handymen such as James Lanigan, former legislative assistant to Averell Harriman. They have suffered, as all new groups must, from wasted effort and confusion. They have worked hard and well. Stevenson at all times has remained deft, good-humored, completely at ease. In contrast, Stevenson's nomination seems from here to have left Politician Dwight David Eisenhower and his many advisers discomfited and confused.
