1952, Eisenhower – The Man from Abilene – political ad – open captioned

Male voice over: (with reverb/echo) The man from Abilene.

Out of the heartland of America, out of this small frame house in Abilene, Kansas, came a man, Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Through the crucial hour of historic D-Day, he brought us to the triumph and peace of VE Day.

Now, another crucial hour in our history, the big question–

Man: General, if war comes, is this country really ready?

Eisenhower: It is not.

The Administration has spent many billions of dollars for national defense.

Yet today, we haven’t enough tanks for the fighting in Korea.

It is time for a change.

Male voice over:  (with reverb/echo)  The nation, haunted by the stalemate in Korea, looks to Eisenhower.

Eisenhower knows how to deal with the Russians.

He has met Europe leaders, has got them working with us.

Elect the number one man for the number one job of our time.

November 4th vote for peace.

Vote for Eisenhower.

Male voice over #2: A paid film.
