GOP 'Splits'
On Feikens
State Republican 'arty leaders
and legislators are voicing opposi-
tion to the retention of John Fei-
kens as chairman of the GOP
State Central Committee.
Florence Crane, chairman of
Ann Arbor's city Republican Com-
mittee, said that a petition was
circulated recently by a member
of the State Legislature expressing
opposition to Feikens' chairman-
ship of the State Central Con-
"Local people are split on the
issue," Mrs. Crane commented.
"My impression of the issue is the
existence of a split between the
pro-Eisenhower group of which
Feikens is a member, and oth-1
ers," she explained, adding thatc
the most likely reason was be-N
cause the GOP lost the election.

games to be played at the field
