Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 28, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Counfy Little Question of Allamakee Vote Pasf Election Results In Allamakee County tt Ity Frank Nyc ALLAMAKKK COUNTY Allamakco county is going Nov. 5. Mark that in your notebook and remember you read it hero first. How can a body lie so all- fircd confident Allamakco is going Republican? Bccansu Allainakcc always goes Re- publican, (bat's why. Allamakeo, iowa's most northeasterly county and one of its most beautiful, scenic-al- ly speaking, went Republican back in 19H4 when all save six oilier Iowa counties were help- inn bring about the Democrat- ic landslide for Lyndon John- son. Moreover, Allamakee is the only county in the Second district that has reached 100 percent of the campaign quota set by slate COP headquart- ers. How much more Republican can a county gel? Fact is that Allamukee has Kline Republican right down the line for all offices except when it slopped over in and 19GG to elect a Democratic stale representative. Went for Democrat Harold Hughes for governor back there in 1964, too. But made up for it in by voting against him for a third term by voles. Then, rubbed it in by giving David Stanley a 324-volc victory over Hughes for tJ.S. senator in No Democrafs In Courthouse There hasn't been a De- mocrat in the Allamakee county courthouse, except to nay taxes and conduct official business, since Bernard Ilo- lihan of Harpers Ferry, and Emmelt Sullivan of Waukon, completed their terms as supervisor and county report- er, respectively, in 19411. What's more, there aren't going to be any Democrats in county office as a result of (his year's election, (o hear it from James Bristol, Waukon lawyer and Alla- makee county's Republican chairman. Uoyd Schrocdcr, (14, Post- ville insurance man and Dem- ocratic county chairman, can'l (Last of 1 9th Articles) argue with Bristol on three county offices inasmuch as Democrats didn't put up candidates for them. So, County Recorder Gladys Moe and County Treasurer FJsa Hager, both Waukon Republicans, are home free in their bids for re-election. So is John ,1. Bauercampcr, young Waukon lawyer, mak- ing his firsl run for county attorney. Hard To Gef Good Candidates But Schroeder lakes issue with Bristol on the olbcr two county officers to be elected a pair of supervisors. Former Waukon Mayor Joseph Deeney, Schroeder's predecessor .as county chair- man, and Lloyd Meehan, Harpers Ferry farmer, are the Democratic candidates for (hose posts. Republican incumbents ar- en't running for re-election so Schroeder figures his parly has a fair chance to win one or bolli positions. Republican candidates for supervisor are Floyd PoUralz, New Albin farmer, and Dale L. Reeder, Waukon, who works in the county engineer's office. "It's hard to get good can- didates when the county is so much one way Schroeder said in a recent interview. "Bui we've gol a couple of good ones hen-." Oilier good ones, Sehrooder said, are Congressman John Culver for U.S. senator, l.a Verne Garnis for stale repre- sentative in the 17lh district am! Matthew Karpan for state senator in the lltli district. "if there is one good thing that has come out of Water- gale it is that people are going to vote for the man, not the .Schroeder said, ex- plaining lhal should help the 'Democrats in this Republican county. Culver, who is opposing Stanley for U.S. senator, has never won Allamakee county and it doesn't look as (hough he'll break that record this lime, short of a miracle. But Schroeder thinks Feeney and Meehan will help Culver and Culver will help (hem, once the polls open. "Culver will Schroeder observed, "because he has proved lie is a hard- working congressman for all of us; he's one people can be- lieve and if there's one thing we need in government today it is honesty." Win By Good Margin "Well, Blouin is no Culver, so I look for Rilcy to win by a good margin here." Riley beat Culver here in 19G8 by votes lo 935) in an unsuccessful at- tempt to unseat Hie con- gressman. Ellsworth beat Culver by voles lo here Iwo years ago, but lost to him in Hie district a-s a whole. Democratic Chairman .Schroeder commented only thai the Blouin-Riley race "will be close." So, too, he said, will be Uial between Stale Sen. James Schaben, Democrat, and Gov. Robert Ray, Republican, for governor. "Culver will help both Blouin and Schroeder declared. Bristol's comment on the Ray-Schabcn race was short and to the point: ''Ray'll win big." He sure will if he does as well as in the last three doe- lions. Ray carried the county by voles in 1972, by 079 in 1970, and by the firsl lime he ran for governor, in 19G8. One race lhal both chair- men are keeping an eye on is thai between Oarms and Republican Roger llalvorson, Moniina insurance man, for Hie 17th district seat. Stale Hep. John Mcndenhall (ll-Ncw Albin) is leaving al the end of this term. Leytze Named Farmers State Bank Executive IXDKPKNDKNCF. llolph S. Leylxe, a former resident of Independence and most re- cently of Cedar Rapids, lias been named vice-president of the Farmers Stale Savings bank here. He has worked for the last seven-and-one-lialf years at Merchants National bank, Ccdiir Rapids, as assistant cashier and as marUoling of- James Bristol Lloyd Schroeder or any other Democrat, is going lo win Allamakee county. "Stanley will win Bristol said in an interview, "but not by as much of a vole as normal because Republicans are turned off. "People ill botn parties are turned off but il will hurt us the most because Allamukee county is so Republican. Republicans are disappointed in Hie Nixon situation. "They're not looking at the Democrats as heroes, of course" State Sen. Tom Riley, Re- publican candidate for Second district congressman, "will carry here, too, but not as big as (Ted) Ellsworth did Iwo years ago." Bristol hinted Riley is con- sidered a bit loo liberal by some Republicans here, bill that his Democratic opponent, Stale Sen. Michael Blouin, is considered more so, which, in Allamakee, comes out in Ri- ley's favor. "Blouin is an unknown Brislol expanded. "As I understand it, Riley is for retention of the right-lo- work law, which should be a big help lo him here, while Blouin wants to charge non- union members a service fee. Other Counties The 17lh includes all of Allamakee counly and parls of adjoining counlies. Garms, a farmer, and llalvorson both live in Clayton county. Schroeder said Garms, a former counly Farm Bureau president, has a good chance lo carry Allamakee and lo win the seal. Bristol said llalvorson should win substantially in Allamakee since he came originally from Waterville in the cast-central part of (he county. reason Schroedor is encouraged about Democratic chances this year can be traced, lie said, lo Hie fad lhal "we haven't had much Irouble gelling money." That would come as music lo the ears of most county chairmen of cither parly, for money hasri'l been easy lo get since Waiergate. But, it wouldn't impress Bristol since Allamakee He- publicans usually do right well by llio parly treasurer as attested by meeting the stale headquarters quota of about which few other counties have done. Another thing that doesn't impress Bristol is the state Republican "Grassroots 74" gct-oul-lhe-vote drive. "We tried that door-lo-door canvass Iwo years Brislol said. "Never again. "People gel indignant. Our workers would ask whether they were a Republican or a Democrat, and they'd ask, 'Don't you know what I Bristol has a point, it would Stanley Will Win COP Chairman Brislol discounts the idea thai Culver. ficer for the Banks of Iowa Computer Service.

Instead of supply-and-demand, giant cor- porations like the oil conglomerates literally dictate a way of life to us. The cost of price-fixing and ineffective competition cost the American consumer almosl S80 billion a year. Our answer to inflation must include vigorous enforcement of anti-lrust laws, reasonable and compassionate budgol culs, tax reform, and a flexible money policy which offers relief to non-inflationary areas of the economy like housing and farming and a national policy on resources." Pciicl IOT by Blouin foi Confess Commitloi1 Joseph Honor, Chnirporson appear. There isn't much use canvassing the county when it is a known fact so many of its residents are Republicans. Another reason, in addition lo a flow of money, thai Schroeder is encouraged about Demecralic chances Nov. 5 is because he professes to "see a change and the cause for it. "The younger generation is leaning more our way than it used lo. And, we have more plants and more labor in our county at Postville, Lansing and Waukon." He let it go unsaid that labor generally votes Demo- cratic. Finally, Scbroeder had these comments: "I don'I believe any polili- cal parly should be blamed for vvhal ils Presidents do, espe- ciaily in their personal lives. "But Watergate and Ford's pardoning of Nixon will take their toll in this election. "Probably, it would have leveled off after Watergate but for the pardon. People are really mad about that. They say others gel Ihe book thrown at them, but the President could gel by with a pardon. "Amnesty? Some go along with conditional amnesty. Hut the pardon is what bothers them. They can't understand why the pardon came before Nixon was convicted or even tried." (End of Seriesj Yi-ur 1972 11171) 1968 1966 1961 1962 For U.S. Senator linn.
