AsMclated tnd United InlernaUoail Full Lease Wires MASON CITY JUNE 4 1942 neighbors V lOc Paper Contlsls of Four No Itl Ed and Ted Show set to open 2 dynasties seek backing By HARRY FERGUSON SPRINGFIELD Mass UPI Ted Kennedy brother of the President makes his big pitch here Thursday to become na tional political figure He is running for the democratic nomination for US S e n a t o r against Edward J McCormack Jr nephew of Speaker John Mc Cormack of the House of repre sentatives This is known locally as The Ed and Ted Show or Which Dynasty Do You Its a smash hit thousand persons have applied for the 1500 available seats in the Springfield Municipal Auditorium where Massachusetts Democrats will hold their convention Both the Kennedys and the Me Cormacks have highgeared political machines operating in this state and the noise of the collision will be heard nation1 The political power of the While House is obvious John Mc Cormack as speaker of the House is among the three or four most powerful men in the country No matter who wins here the Demo cratic party had better prepare the tourniquets The blood letting is going to be awful A cynical Bostonan once ob served that politically speaking Massachusetts is an insane asylum run by the inmates That is an exaggeration because the politicians here not only are sane they are shrewd Some Demo cratic mayors and sheriffs are so shrewd that they are staying away from Springfield because they do not want to get hurt when the vehicles smash into each other But there are some strange political customs in this state The convention is nothingbut a popu larity contest On there will be one roll call of the 1719 delegates between Kennedy and McCormack But the defeated man still can enter the Democratic primary in the fall and c both of them intend to do so This is ust batting pratice in prepara tion for the big game but both McCormack and Kennedy are going all out on the theory that the man endorsed by the conven tion usually gets the nomination Its a close race The Boston Globe observed that men who normally would bet on anything including two turtles1 with numbers on their backs are being cagey Officially President Kennedy primary electi and Speaker McCormack have conventions kept hands off But tempers are rising here and the McCormack supporters charge that vague of fers of postmasterships are com ing from Washington in an at tempt to persuade delegates The Kennedy faction alleges that Speaker McCormack has been on the telephone from Washington reminding delegates of past po litical favors Young McCormack 38yearsold is attorney general of the state Kennedy 30 is a former assist ant district attorney for Suffolk County Both are Irish Roman Catholics a political asset in this state This is Kennedys first try for elective office and every place he goes he runs into the charge that the Kennedy family is trying to set up a dynasty in Washington I dont think people would ex pect me to set on my hands for the rest of my says just because my brother is President and my other brother is at torney general I wasnt brought up that way Earlier in the campaign Ken nedy decided he had better get off his chest an unhappy thing that happened at Harvard He con fessed in public that he was weak on a foreign language never specified but believed to be Spanish so he hired a whiz kid to take the examination for him Will that hurt him now Of course said a politician noted for his ability to spot trends He has worked hard on this campaign and has made up for it There is a convention delegate on the North Shore who until a few days ago was undecided be tween McCormack and Kennedy Then Kennedy showed up spent an hour in the living room and held the baby on his knee Next day Mrs
