how the Board of Regents can adopt any other policy Agreement was voiced by oard members Jonathan Rich ards of Red Oak Frank Louden Democrats to express choices in primaries DES MOINES Iowa Democrats have agreed on a compromise plan under which iheparty could express prefer ence for certain candidates seek ing nomination to office in pri mary elections It could done through the polling of delegates at pre primary conventions The plan announced Friday afler a meeting at Democratic state headquarters resolves an interparty dispute which arose when State Chairman Lex Hawk ins recently proposed that the organization support one candi date for each office in the pri mary That was opposed by Gov Harold Hughes who said it would take nominations away from rank and file Democrats State

juvenile film star played the part of the longhaired Angel in the Dead End Kids series ns Hughes and other leaders agreed on the new plan The compromise permits but does not require polls of dele gates to the state district and county Democratic conventions Such polls have long been per mitted but have been strictly in formal Under the new procedure rules are set out for conducting a poll at a preprimary convention In a case where there arc multiple candidates for one nomination any candidate who gets onethird or more votes of the delegates would get party help in arranging meetings and putting out campaign informa tion but no financial aid If there are two or more can didates for an office and one is backed by twothirds of the dele gates he would get the party upporl Democratic headquarters said the plan was unanimously ap proved by Gov Hughes Chair man Hawkins state Democratic officeholders and the six Demo cratic congressmen It will be submitted to the partys state convention next year and if approved there il would apply to all offices from the top of the ticket down Hawkins said the principal reason for revising party pro cedure was that the 1965 legisla ture changed the date for pri mary elections from June to September There have been in stances where a half dozen can didates for one office ran in the primary and none received the required 35 per cent to win the nomination The nomination then went to a postprimary con vention The time between a primary in September and a general elec tion in November is too short to permit nominations by conven tion
