Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - December 26, 1964, Dover, Ohio U.S. Politics Is Big Story Of 1964 By Mary Campbell AP Newsfeatures Writer Editors of AP member newspapers and radio and TV stations voted the campaign and landslide election of Lyndon B. Johnson as President the top news story of 1964. For the Republicans, the campaign started with Henry Cabot Lodge, who wasn’t even in the country, winning the New Hampshire primary. The polls showed Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York moving ahead after he won the Oregon primary; then Gov. William Scranton of Pennsylvania announced his candidacy. But it was Barry M. Coldwater, a conservative, who swept to a first-ballot nomination at the convention in San Francisco. The only suspense for the Democrats before their convention in Atlantic City was the question of whom Johnson would name as his running mate. Not too surprisingly, LBJ See POLITICS, Page 3 ► Tops In '64 1. Political campaign and election 2. Khrushchev’s ouster 3. Civil Rights 4. Alaska earthquake 5. Viet Nam 6. Red China’s A-bomb k 7.

The tally reached 290 in the holiday period that began at 6 p.m. local time Thursday and will end at midnight Sunday. Many multiple death accidents swelled the total.

The National Safety Council has estimated the final count at the end of the long holiday weekend at midnight Sunday would be between 550 and 650. Nine separate accidents took the lives of at least 36 persons. Included were seven members of tw'o families in Georgia, families of four in Illinois, Michigan, and Arkansas, and families of three in Ohio and Tennessee.
