Below is the first of two impartially written articles entitled a listening to the Pacific a third article immediately following these will afford a concise general word picture of current political feeling throughout the country. By Frazier Hunt copyright 1936, Nea service inc despite the Townsend cough Lin Lemke combination California is a five to one bet for Roosevelt i most observers vary Only in their estimates of the Roosevelt majority. These run from 250.000 to More than 500,000 for Roosevelt. Townsend is going to desperate extremes to Force his followers to turn from Roosevelt to Lemkey eleven Landon. Hts personal bitterness against Roosevelt apparently knows no Bounds. His hate had been growing slowly for the past year but the congressional investigation of the whole Townsend plan organization set it off like a firecracker. Today in or i Townsend a own mind the de i feat of Roosevelt is almost More i Imper Ait than the election of. Townsend pledged congressmen. Townsend plea ignored re in the Southern third of Calif former utilities operator j Ornia entering about the sunny at a j i cities of san Diego and Las an a among i i to accused j Geles the venerable doctor has Iii bombing attempt j11�11 tens of thousands of True i a a j believers who Are being pleaded with to up their Bird in the hand Relief benefits Pav a. Jobs and social Security under Roose velt and vote against him. But. Apparently Only a relatively Small proportion will do thus. Mast of them Are fix canny horse traders waste their vote on a third party and their Mystic belief in Roosevelt persists despite their indignation at the administration Iii permitting the Townsend investigation. In san Diego county where Tovsen Sites claim 40.000 mein-1 Belso a determined drive to per j Suade the doctors followers to change their democratic registration before the August 25th primaries resulted in a total shift of exactly 384 votes. This left the democrats still 16.807 Iii the Lead. 64.792 registered d e in of r a t s 1 against 47,985 republicans. Certainly it proved that or towns ends impassioned voice has little1 political magnetism when it comes to the presidential election. Iii the congressional elections however a a frightened Man is the ambitious candidate who does not pledge Lii sell body and soul to the plan. Every Townsen Dite is a Thorn in his Side. Ordinarily election years Are hectic times in California and political fever runs As wide a Range As the temperatures Iii the states Snow capped mountains and Plain fringed valleys. But to Date Alf Landon has failed to impress his personality on the dwellers of the Pacific coast. The Kansas budget bal acting feat of the governor has less Appeal than in the East. And somehow or other the mounting National debt is not viewed with i such alarm As in other sections j of this vast country. Unemployed Back Roosevelt part of this reaction is due to j Hie tremendous unemployment and a Relief problem in the Southern j third of the state. In los Angeles j county alone live 45 per cent of i the state s population and one out of every Lour Are on Relief of one kind or another. These Munfor i bunnies Are resigned to a limited Dole and the one hopi they look j Forward to is a bigger and better hand out. A More than 85 per cent of them j Are for Roosevelt a a Man who. 31 knows the True unemployment sit nation and views it calmly said. To me. A and the same is True of j Sinclair sold epic followers. J most of the original 800,000 who i i voted for Sinclair Are Back in tile democratic ranks.
