charges By KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Service PRINCETON N J A can didate for political office who finds himself a good whipping boy improves his chances of vic tory at the polls A good example of the skillful use of a whipping boy is illus trated by Barry Goldwaters 1958 campaign against AFLCIO Vice President Walter Reuther despite the fact that during the 1958 Arizona U S Senate cam paigning Reuther was never in that state and of course not running for any office there In 1958 labor unions had not made the big strides forward in Arizona that they had in other states LITTLE WONDER then that when Sen Goldwater deliberate ly chose to run against Walter Reuther instead of his Demo cratic opponent Gov Ernest W McFarland he was able to win a signal victory in a year when GOP candidates did not fare too well Day in and day out Barry Goldwater challenged Reuther who at the time was going about regular duties a thou sand or more miles away to come out to Arizona to debate him The Arizona U S Senator said harsh things about lleuther not about Gov McFarland against whom he was running for the contested U S Senate seat IT IS unlikely that the U S Senator expected the labor un ion leader to come to Arizona to debate But by cleverly using Reuther as a whipping boy Bar ry Goldwater once again won membership privileges in the most select club in the nation the 100 member organization of the U S Senate Labor unions themselves have used whipping boys very very successfully In that same year 1958 a number of Repub lican legislatures across the na tion furnished their opponents an excellent whipping boy in the form of righttowork bills It is a matter of record that with the single exception of the state of Kansas righttowork bills were defeated in every other slate where they were on the ballot RIGHT TO work unquestion ably helped defeat Sen William Knowland for governorof Cal ifornia and thereby ruined what ever chance he had for the 1960 GOP presidential nomination Even in Kansas where right towork passed George Dock ing was able to win election for a second term as a Democratic governor a difficult job in the so called Republican state of Kansas That same year the Demo crats in Kansas elected three congressmen out of a total of six and also made inroads into ihe membership of the normally GOP Kansas legislature Calls for boost in defense By JACK
