Evening Tribune, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1976, Albert Lea, Minnesota A Tribune opinions voters win first debate did t Gerald Ford or Jimmy Carter As a Clear Winner in the first of the debates of 76 on thursday night. Both candidates had questions they handled Well and some they handled not quite so Well. Each was Able to make some Points that Are sure to score with voters. Carter for example portrayed Ford As having no compassion for the unemployed while Ford tried to show Carter As a big spender. Despite their intense feelings for the issues being discussed the candidates were Able to keep the talks on a High level. Their facts May have differed at times but they stuck to the facts. If there was a Beauty contest Side to the debate too we again would have trouble picking a Winner. Fore was forceful from the Start but rarely looked in to the camera the real audience for the debate. Car Ter on the other hand warmed up quite slowly although his More soft spoken style May have been an advantage in the later moments. And both somehow managed to keep their Cool for what must have been a very aggravating 28 minutes of not being on the air at All. If a Winner must be chosen we would have to say it was the audience the voters. The millions who wat Ched should now have a Little clearer picture of Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. Little was said that was new. Both men were cautious As most people Are in critical situations not straying from previous positions or introducing new ideas. But for an hour and a half they were answering the same questions on the same platform at the same time. General differences in philosophy and approach to problems were quite apparent even if they were often along traditional Republican democratic Battle lines. So far the Campaign has not generated a great out pouring of Public interest. We suspect that might be a result of neither candidate having a National constituency until just recently Ford was Only a congressman from Michigan. Carter a Southern Gover nor. Whether the debates will give them greater exposure and spark Campaign interest remains to be seen. It is quite apparent the debates will not provide voters with any More details of the programs and suggestions being offered by the candidates but then this is the age of television the age of the 60-second commercial and three minute answer to an economic question. Details May no longer be necessary however sad that is in a successful National Campaign. I today s meditation but Martha was numbered about much serving and came to him and said.

And 1 did t know or care about any rules of photography and in that respect. I guess i can t say i have changed All that much but i did change somewhat when a photographer at a is unemployment really an Issue like inflation was two years ago by John p. Roche King columnist to understand Jimmy car Ter s present predicament you have to appreciate the moods of the Media when Carter appeared on the scene he was a new a Dixie Hercules come to clean the Augen stables of America politics Carter naturally enough was delighted to be billed As the non politician in a Field of Hacks he emphasized his piety and allegedly announced he would never Tell a lie i say allegedly because it is hard to believe anyone even in non politics would set himself up like that Well it worked Fine in the primaries but inevitably the press got bored with the new since like every candidate in history it was constantly accompanied by the same old speech there were also some guilt feelings about the primary coverage1 in the cold Light of the morning after commentators began to wonder had Carter taken them for a ride when you read the statistics a week later what happened to that great Vic tory7" one of the first Laws of human nature of course is that if you believe you have been con Ned you blame the Guy who did the consequence the hound pack is now in Pursuit of Carter. If Jimmy changed his tooth paste Brand at least 10 reporters would accuse him of flip flopping meanwhile Back at the White House Good old Jerry who when it comes to flip flopping makes a porpoise look arthritic smokes his pipe and watches the Carter Hunt on to Carter s supporters can ask query loudly Why Don t they pick on Ford " the answer is that there is no Point to it. Everybody knows Ford is capable As . Roosevelt used to say wryly of rising above besides when you Nail him on some contradiction he just smiles genially and delights his pipe. On the other hand. Carter if properly provoked May go off like a can non which would really make news however the press alone is not responsible for the haphazard character of the democratic Campaign. Democratic strategists thought 1976 was going to be a free ride the conventional Wisdom states that any time the Economy is in trouble the electorate turns to who s who behind Bamboo curtain China s succession scramble by econom St London Lens the official mourning ended last weekend after a fifth of the world stood still for three minutes in memory of Mao tse Tung then the race for the succession resumed the Job to be filled is the top one in China chairman of the chinese communist party held by Mao since 1945 the body which should do the selecting is the party Central committee which last met in plenary session in 1973 the funeral brings All Active members of the Central com Mittee to peking so the mechanics for a speedy appointment Are there the politics of it will be much less simple so the initial decision May Well be not to decide chinese politics have moved on a stage since the party had to make its last difficult Choice of a prime minister to succeed Chou in Lai the definitive removal of the disputations Teng Hsiao Ping in april has left the moderate Side without an obvious Cham Pion it has strength in numbers in the Central committee. In the bureaucracy and in the army but probably nobody to con tend for the top Job one exception May be the 77-year-old defense minister. Yeh Chien Ying who is prestigious enough to hold the bag but not for too Long he might also swing the army behind whatever new align ment is worked out at the same time the politburo has lost five members since it was formed in 1973 Yeh is reported to have stomped out of the party meeting in february when the maoists first dislodged Teng Hsiao Ping he came out of his sulk in the Spring after the for Mal appointment of Hua Kuo Feng As prime minister and first vice chairman of the party Hua. The Compromise candidate is Way out in front at the moment until a new party chairman is chosen he is top Man in the party As Well As head of government a combination of posts no chinese has Ever held before As the incumbent he can Only be helped by a deferred decision but Hua has several disadvantages. One is his relative inexperience he has been a minister for less than two years and a member of the politburo for Only three he was plucked out of the Middle ranks of the politburo and Cabinet he had caught Mao s Eye sometime before As a result of a standoff Between Teng and the left Wing candidate. Chang Chun Chiao he seems to have been nobody s first Choice but acceptable to All factions a High political recommendation not Only in China Hua has been looking More Leader like this summer particularly in the Relief opera Tion following the Tangshan earthquake still he has no visible Power base and no links with the army so a Strong push by one or other of the factions could bring him Down the Man Hua jumped Over to become number two in the party was another expert in rapid ascent Wang Hung Wen. The Young Shanghai Radical who shot up from a Security Job in a Shanghai fac tory to second vice chairman of the party in six years in 1973 Mao seemed to have singled him out As a potential successor but Wang suffered a setback after Teng Hsiao pm returned to Power dubbed him helicopter because of his vertical Takeoff and i letters from our readers refused to give him responsibility until he had proved himself he failed at least one of Tang s tests by not managing to Settle the workers dispute in hang How which Teng eventually flew m to handle himself what is not known is whether he failed in Mao s eyes As Well Wang is still very much in the running he is 20 years younger than his nearest rival but looks unlikely to get the prize this time round. The fourth surviving member of the Poh Truro s standing committee is Chang Chun Chiao the senior figure in the Shanghai mafia and probably also the most Likely after Hua. To succeed Chang is often said to have changed his stripes since joining the establishment but the evidence is on the other Side it was he who launched Mao s Campaign in 1975 against Bourgeois rights and probably also he who plotted the assault on Teng Hsiao pm Chang Rose with the cultural revolution but his maoist credentials go Back to 1958 when he first began his at tacks on those Bourgeois rights this record is Likely to sit badly with the army which has no love for cultural revolutionaries and might move in to veto one of them Hua. Wang. Yeh and Chang As the funeral lists confirm make up the starting order but there Are other dark horses of varying shades one contender who cannot be Dis counted if Only for her capacity to stir up trouble is mrs Mao More than anyone else on the list Mao s widow has formidable enemies particularly in the army the people who used her to gain Access to her husband May now find her a liability Hopes for a stable Post Mao Era depend to a great extent on shifting her to a powerless dowager Empress role. Two other outside possibilities in the politburo Are a Soldier Chen Hsi Lien and a peasant. Chen Yung Kuei Chen the Soldier controls the peking military District and if the army feels strongly opposed to the front runners it might just unite behind him As one of its own. He is Little known even by chinese standards and is reported with equal Confidence to be a raging Radical and a confidant of the late Chou in Lai. This May mean that he is actually a Neutral Soldier which would be a Strong recommendation for a faction torn party Chen the peasant made his name in the 1960s As Leader of the Tach at brigade the Model agricultural unit which Mao picked out As a Symbol of self Reliance. But Chen Yung Kuei could be selected Only As a Symbol since he has had no administrative experience beyond Taichai As a Symbol he could represent the continuation of the peasant revolution begun so years ago by Mao for the first time in China s communist history continuity is at a Premium nature s world the party of besides the Impact of watergate on the congressional elections of 1974 was vastly overrated As a follow up Michigan social research study clearly indicated the big 1974 Issue was the Economy yet if that was the Case in 1974, should the same concern for the Economy repeat the landslide in 1976 the answer to this one is crucial and to my knowledge no Democrat has put it into the computer. In 1974 the economic problem was inflation which is a form of taxation that hits Rich and poor alike if the purchasing Power of the Dollar drops 11 s per cent everybody suffers the same loss though in substantive terms the poor Are hit hardest because they have less they can afford to inflation in Short was an Issue that Cut across class executive was just As sore As the police Man in 1976. However the Issue is not inflation but unemployment and this is a problem with a differential Impact on various Sec tors of the electorate recent studies of the labor Market indicate for example that the present unemployment rate of about 7.s per cent would have been 4 2 per cent in the Era when male Heads of households provided the statistical base the massive entry of women in to the labor Market has in creased the unemployment rate the same in history have so Many americans been employed almost a further complication is assessing the political Impact of unemployment is that the largest bloc of Unzem electorally just Don t vote. To make a Long Story Short the question before the democrats is this has the decline in inflation for which president Ford can claim credit even if it was occasioned by sunspots give the republicans More political credit among the voting electorate than the use in unemployment has subtracted from their account maybe Jim my Carter s recent emphasis on a balanced budget indicates he has been concerned by this equation Pale Blue Flowers of Chicory Bloom to the editor a Roll a Thon is being sponsored by the Center of today inc on oct zat pm toot 3, at 3 p m to help raise monies for the support of the Center for each Dollar raised through this Benefit the Federal government will match under the older americans act although there will be roller skating for 26 consecutive hours pledge skaters need not skate the entire time they May.
