Hughes was not aNhome when the incident occurred TA Tommy Thompson chief of the State Bureau of Criminal Investigation said the armed man later was located at his apartment and admitted he displayed a gun during an argument with the driver of another car It was a case of two drivers arguing over crowding and jockeying in traffic Thompson said He said the man picked up admitted he displayed a hoi

DIRECTOR DIES LONDON Ham er 52 British film director best known for his Kind Hearts and Coronets died Wednesday SAME Gov Hughes riding crest of power Hultman faces dilemma DES MOINES rfp DES MOINES de feat of the Shaff reapportion ment plan has made Democratic Gov Harold E Hughes as the most powerful political figure in Iowa for years and put Repub lican Atty Gen Evari Hultman in a dilemma This was the consensus Thurs day of both Densocraiic and Re publican political observers in the state as they analyzed the Implications of the ing defeat of the Shaff Plan by voters Tuesday Hughes was the leading op ponent of the Shaff Plan to re vamp the makeup of the legis lature and he campaigned vigor ously against the measure which was approved by the last two sessions of the legislature both controlled by the Republi cans Much of the credit for its defeat must go to him This was the second major victory since taking over as the states chiet excutive in Jan uary The first was passage by the 1963 legislature of a liquor bythedrink law to end a 47year ban on glass sales in the state Although Republicans point out it was the GOP controlled legislature which passed the liquor bill Hughes campaigned liquor during his bid for the governors chair Most observers feel his upset defeat of incum bent GOP Gov Norman A Eriw could be attributed at least in part if not primarily to Hughes stand on liquor and triat the leg iskture would not have ap proved a liquor bill if Erbe had been reelected Coupled with his two big vic tories is the fact that Hughes has not suffered any setbacks that have seriously damaged him politically or tarnished his prestige He did not get all his legislative program through the 1963 general assembly but he can always say that was impos sible to accomplish with a GOP controlled legislature Add to this Hughes own per sonable manner and friendly personality and you have a formidable political figure Hughes is certainly riding a crest today and he would be almost impossible to beat in an election right now one Repub lican source commented The attorney general is con sidered the leading contender for the Republican nomination for governor although he has not announced his political inten tions for 1964 Hughes also has not announced but is expected to seek a second term The question now before Hult man is whether to try to wrest the governorship from a popular Democratic chief executive or his bid in hopes that chances might be better two years later Either choice could have disastrous results for the attorney general One spokesman put it this way Hultman wouldnt have much trouble getting the GOP nomination for governor but most observers feel he could not defeat Hughes in an election at this time Of course that could change by the time the next gen eral election rolls around in November 1964 On the other hand Hultman has jockeyed himself into the position of being the top and only really strong candidate for the GOP gubernatorial nomina
