Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 19, 1950, Winona, Minnesota Fair, Cooler Tonight; Warmer Wednesday VOLUME 50, HO. 181 FIVE CENTS PER COPY WIHONA, MINNESOTA, TUESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER The Proof of FM Superiority fs In the Listening SIXTEEN PAGES t Voting Light in Wi Only One-Third Of Eligible Vofersj Expected at Polls! Wiley Slated To Get G.O.P. Renomination By The Associated Press Early reports today indicated a light vole in Wisconsin's primary election. Election officials at noon predict- ed less than one-third of the qual- ified voters would show up. That would be something like-half-a-mil- lion of the or so eligible. Politicians have tried to make the election interesting especial- ly in the races for governor and! U. S. senator but the word was! that people had their minds on I war rather than politics. Much of the campaigning has been concerned more'with the No- vember 7 final election than with today's primary. Candidates at- tacked the other party rnore often tha.n they did their opponents with- in their own party. Hot Race for Governor A notable exception was the Re- publican race for governor, where Waiter J. Kohler. Jr., son of a former governor, was the target of brisk verbal lashings from Leon- ard J. Schmitt. The Merrill attor- ney accused Kohler and his Re- publican voluntary committee backers of being servants of big business and trying to break down the open primary tradition. But Kohler, pledging an efficient, busi- nesslike administration, was rated as heavy favorite to wir. the nomination. Republican Governor Oscai Ren- nebohm is not seeking re-election. On the Democratic side, Nation- al Committeeman Carl W. Thomp- son, the 1948 gubernatorial nom- inee, had opposition from Charles P, Greene, former state party chairman. Thompson assailed G.O.P. stats policies, especially on, taxes. Greene also attacked the! Republicans but, in addition, ac- cused Thompson bossism within, to win. x The Democratic contest for the U. S. Senate nomination to the seat now held by Republican Sena- tor Alexander Wiley captured ma- jor attention. Thomas E. Fairchild, William E. Sanderson, Daniel W. Hoan and La Vern Dilwee all con- ducted extensive campaigns and hoped for strong support to de-j velop due to their past j Fairchild as attorney general, San- j der.-on a? a farm leader, Hoan asj a former Milwaukee mayor andj Dilweg as a former football starj and excongressman. All Attack Wiley They all attacked Wiley fre- quently and remarks directed agairiit each other were rare. Wiley, meanwhile, stayed in Washington most of the tune, showing no concern over his mary opponent. Edward J. Finan, j whose campaign drew little auen-j tion. j Contests for state offices other! zovernov produced quieter, campaigns, except for some sharp' exchanges between G.O.P. attor- ney General Candidate Verr.on Thompson and a Democratic con- tender for the post, Henry Reuss. Thompson's G.O.P. opponent is Wiiliam H. Dieter'ch and Reuss is opposed for the Democratic nomination by Robert W, Arthur. Both parties also have contests for lieutenant governor.
