ABSTRACT
The article discusses the support of 54 Southern newspapers to Republican presidential candidate Dwight Eisenhower, which is considered a major switch as most U.S. South publications are traditionally Democratic Party supporters. It reports that big dailies including the "Richmond News Leader," "Dallas Times-Herald," and "Birmingham News" have junked Governor Adlai Stevenson, presidential candidate of the Democrats. According to the Associated Press, 54 out of the 112 Southern papers have chosen Eisenhower.
