Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 14, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE The newspaper that makes all North lowans neighbors VOL 98 Associated Press and United Press Internationa Full MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JULY 14 1960 Tc s Copy Paper ConnlnU of Four Ona No 237 Trou Dems have big bulge in House Margin over Republicans now is 75 per cent By KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Service PRINCETON N J If an election for the House of Repre sentatives was held today the Democrats would sweep the country and win control of the House by an even bigger margin than they did in 1958 What should be of deep con cern to GOP leaders at national headquarters in Washington D C and in state headquarters across the nation is that todays figures show that the margin the Democrats now have is bigger than it has been at any time since 1936 That was the year in which Democratic candidates picked up 585 per cent of the popular vote and 313 House seats and the year in which F D R took every state in the union except Maine and Vermont TODAYS FINDINGS show that if an election was held to day the Democrats would very likely win by a margin of 15 per cent In 1958 the year the Democrats swept the nation the Democratic margin was 12 per cent At the same time the Democrats picked up 282 of the House Seats to the Republicans 153 a margin of 129 seats Here are the figures that show present RepublicanDemocratic strength House of Representatives Democrats 575 Republicans 425 seen for Kenn VICTOR ADDRESSES DELEGATES SenJohn F Kennedy AP Photofax

Averill Harriman are his sister Mrs Peter Lawford Leonard the rostrum of thfe Los Angeles Sports Arena where he was nomiReinsch convention director Iowa on Kennedy bandwagon early The findings point up once more to the enormity of the task facing Vice President Nixon who is almost certain to receive the 1960 GOP presidential nom ination Based on todays fig ures Vice President Nixon would have to run somewhat better than 75 per cent ahead of GOP Congressional candidates across the nation 425 per cent vote for GOP candi dates for House Seats plus a bit more than the 75 per cent to make more than 50 per cent of the popular vote THAT THE TASK is difficult but not impossible is illustrated by the fact that in 1956 Presi dent Eisenhower ran 89 per cent ahead of the GOP House of Representatives vote in the na tion Noteworthy however is that no other presidential candidate even Ike himself in 1952 has run 75 per cent ahead of his partys Congressional candidate ticket in any Presidential elec tion race since 1932 This is the record of how they ran Franklin Roosevelt ran 25 per cent ahead of his partys con gressional ticket in 1932 4 per cent ahead in 1936 19 per cent ahead in 1940 and 16 per cent ahead in 1944 PRESIDENT HARRY S Tru man ran 38 per cent behind his partys congressional candidate vote in 1948 And Ike ran 56 per cent ahead of his partys congressional can didate vote in 1952 and a whop ping 89 per cent ahead in 1956 In a nutshell then If senti ment for GOP Congressional By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor LOS ANGELES This was one time when Iowas delega tion to a national Democratic national convention d i d nt miss the boat By disregarding a state con vention resolution calling for opening roll call support of Herschel Loveless as a favor ite son candidate for presi dent the HaVvkeye state quali fies for any special benefits attached to being in the Ken nedy camp from the start Actually of course Iowa votes were cast for Stev enson Symington Johnson and Loveless IVfor the lowan but that still left a sizable for the Massa chusetts senator and helped his nomination with 806 votes on the opening ballot Iowa headquarters here in the Statler resembled a de serted village Thursday fore noon There was high interest in the vice presidential nomi nation for which Herschel Loveless had been prominent ly mentioned At the same time however it was recog nized that this was wholly in the hands of nominee Ken nedy and his advisers Speculation centered on four frontrunners Symington of Missouri Jackson of Washing ton Hodges of North Carolina and Freeman of Minnesota In this field lowans have a pronounced preference for Symington although all hasten to addthat it ought to be Herschel Symington indicated strong ly he would accept the vice presidential nomination He did not Want to appear as if he were pushing for the job however I came out here to run for president The question of vice president is entirely up to the next president Sen Jack Ken nedy The matter is entirely up to him By coincidence or through planning this is being debated chief support for Kennedy was among Iowas delegates rather than the al ternates Symington Johnson and Stevenson had their back ers who were wishing for ad ditional ballots and a break away from Kennedy Most of the fire in the final caucus held in Convention Hall just before the voting started had to do with whether the instruction to stay with Loveless could be fairly or legally disregarded Loveless himself was on the side of those who wanted to shift vote after casting all 26 votes for him Loveless did turn down the favorite son vote of his state Wednesday night after the lowans staged a floor parade Nearly a score of friendly states sent their banners pa rading with that of the Hawk eyes Loveless was overwhelmed at the demonstration He thanked his fellow lowans But he said since he seconded the nomination of Kennedy he de sired to step aside in favor of the senator And he did Kennedys Iowa backers were elated with his victory and supporters of rival aspir 225 die in asylum fire GUATEMALA CITY Guate mala ffl An insane asylum was destroyed by fire Thursday

faces the job that only Ike was able to do in 1956 something that no other president was able to do in six elections prior to 1956 run more than 75 per cent ahead of his partys congressional candi dates Todays findings would seem to indicate that the House of Representatives is almost cer tain to remain under Democrat ic control come January 1961 They also appear to indicate that GOP U S Senate
