Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 4, 1954, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS VOL LXI Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY NOVEMBER 4 1954 This Paper Consists of Two Ooe No 22 Democrats Also Win Senate Martin Election Largely Due to Personal Effort By ROBERT HOGAN DBS MOINES IDPA Iowas new Republican senatorelect Thomas E Martin of Iowa City would be the last man to say that his thumping victory over Democrat Sen Guy Gillette was not a team accomplishment but the fact remains that the candidate himself can take a huge slice of the credit The outcome is certainly a tremendous personal vjqtory lor Martin At almost every turn in the road in the last two years the first district congressman met obstacles that might well have thrown less courageous Right after his reelection to Congress from the first district in November 1952 he started to seriously investigate the Senate race for himself By early December it was generally known that Martin would seek the Seriate nomination and on March 10 1953 he announced his candidacy an unusually early announcement Almost immediately he heard cries from within the Republican ranks The sages said it was too early that hed have a big primary field to overcome that he wasnt well enough known to compete suc cessfullywith such a colorful sonality as the Democrat incum bent Guy Gillette But Martin told fellow Repub Hcans Just get two people to gether and Ill be there to talk to Martin began touring Iowa by plane train and car right after his announcement By the time the filing deadline for primary candi dates had rolled around he found himself alone in the field and with the1 party nomination all sacked up Neverthless he con tinued his travels during the pri mary and jnto the general election campaign He rolled up the amaz ing total of more than miles in two years Lengthy Speeches MARTIN During the primary he time and again that his campaign speeches were too long But he kept on talking maintained that people want the facts and Ive got to give them all the He didnt bristle outwardly when R e p u b 1 ican leaders told him that their candidate for governor would help carry him into of V Late in the campaign he scoffed at the political polls and the eastern political writers who came into Iowa to report that Martin would lose the race Those fellows could have writ ten those pieces in Washington They could have just as well been last was his reaction some two weeks ago to published reports that he would lose The Iowa Citian last March had mapped out his campaign strategy and stuck with it until election day One of his first announcements stressed Republican support in Congress for President Eisenhow er It referred to the fact that the Democrat senator from Iowa was giving Ike little cooperation Despite heavy pressures from both sides Martin never was forced into a stand on the Mc Carthy question he never had to commit himself on the Bricker amendment was never personally drawn into a discussion of person alities in the campaign Surprise Results His speeches always lauded Ike stressed the need of Republican control of the Congress underlined the fact that the Korean been ended and reminded farm ers that hog and cattle prices were good in a peacetime economy In the last three weeks the Re publican party steppedup its cam paign to elect Martin The party efforts in that time and Martins own insistence on sticking to his original campaign format pro duced surprise results The victory was probably the Two Men Held in Robbery of Motorist Two men were being questioned Thursday by the Cerro Gordo County sheriffs office inconnection with the robbery of an Osage air man and theft of his car The men arrested by Cedar Falls police within an hour and 20 min utes after the robbery have been identified as Julius Novitzki

Rekindle Interest in Rematch in 56 WASHINGTON outcome of Tuesdays stubbornly contested elections Thursday served to whet interest in a possible rematch be tween Dwight D Eisenhower and Adlai E Stevenson in the 1956 Presi dential race The prospect was emphasized by the fact that the midterm battle catapulted only a bare handful of new personalities into the spotlight as potential entries in the 56 sweepstakes As returns rolled in President Eisenhower told his news conference that so far as he could see the elections would have no effect one way or another on whether he will seek a second term in 1956 All the would say was theres plenty of time for the decision At Libertyville Stevenson hailed the outcome as a portent of things to obvious allu sion to with n twinkle he added quickly
