GlobeGazette DES liquor by the drink be a major issue in the Iowa general election in No vember Yes say the Democrats yes ays a national magazine which reported vot ers to fight out the question of whether liquor is to be sole by the drink or by the bottle in state But many political observer say that before the votes are cast the liquor question niay be far in the background Harold Hughes state com merce commissioner and the Democratic candidate forgov ernor sprung the issue late in the primary campaign He swamped his opponent Lewis Lint carrying every county in eluding Lints by a 65844 to 17 832 margin Hughes is said to have studied the issue at great length reliec on a private poll and took hear when the poll showed a major ity of the persons questioned favored open sale of liquor The big question being asked Is Can the liquorbythedrink question be sustained until elec tion time Most observers be lieve that Hughes came ou with the issue far too early ti get maximum benefit in th general election There are those who believi that Hughes came out for liq uor by the drink early in orde to get Erbe on record and per baps embarrass the governor in the primary But observers be lieve that Erbe played i smart by not fallingfor th bait and the issue died aborn ing in the Republican primary Hughes apparently is gamb ling that the issue will be a hot one in the more populou counties and reports say that he is planning to concentrate i the 25 largest counties of thi state It was in those countie that Hughes piled up his majo vote polling 35982 votes or 54 per cent of his statewide total Erbe polled 59181 in the 2 largest counties or 43 per cen of his total In 1958 when the Democrat scooped their most impressiv victory in recent years forme governor Herschel Loveles rolled up 264128 votes to 20114 for William Murray in thes counties But in 1960 Erbe car ried 13 of the counties and ha 339997 votes to 353774 for Ed ward J McManus who had de feated Hughes in the primary Jn other words the JDemocra m a rg1 n in these countie dropped from 57 per cent to 50 per cent Evidence that the Democrat plan to make their major ap peal in the cities can befoun in a bitter attack on Erbe mad by State Sen Melvin Wolf D Waterloo the partys candidat for lieutenant governor H told a partisan rally at Ceda Rapids that Erbe is a cap live of the Farm Bureau an that Erbe has shown little lead ership in reapportioDment an has done nothing to enforc the liquor control laws Thi language usually is designed appeal to big county voters In its June issue of Part Line the Republican Party de scribes Hughes as recK less advocateof liquor by th drink Political observers willbe in terested in what the party pla forms say on thesubject Th county conventions will be hel June 29 and will start
