and United Press Full Lease Wires Five Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY OCTOBER 9 1948 Opinion Wilson Again Is Trailing Guy Gillette In the nipanatuck battle for US senator Democrat Guy Gil lette again has a slight lead over present Senator George Wilson If the election were being held today Wilson might win out but it would be due to the ef fect of straight ticket voting and because of the strength of the republican presidential ticket The indications now however are that many more republicans than in the past will cross party lines in the senatorial race The doubtful character of this Important campaign has been shown in polls by IOWA PUBLIC OPINION PANEL which in July gave Gillette a slight lead put wilson ahead in August but now again shows Gillette out in front The latest poll means if voters who are now undecided vote in the same proportions as those with opinions that Gillette has 523 per cent of the vote and Wilson 477 per cent By political parties voters now divide as

miscellaneous rea sons 10 18 I dont know why I prefer him J really dont have a reason etc Several other IPOP findings in dicate that republican leaders need to do more than just spread the slogan Vote It Straight in 48 if they want to be sure that the com plete republican slate including George Wilson will be elected These are 1 Majorities of those with opin ions say Gillette would do the best job as U S senator regard ing each of 5 important issues in the coming campaign 2 An even 50 per cent of all lowans believe Wilsons chances of being reelected have been hurt because of the action of the Amer ican Federation of Labor which recently announced that it will spend a million dollars to try to defeat candidates for the U S senate and congress who voted for the TaftHartley act Wilson was named as one of these candidates 3 A shown above Gillettes sup porters include 19 per cent of all republicans and 22 per cent of those favoring Dewey But even a greater proportion of Beardsley and of

human freedom and committing suicide themselves if they agreed to destroy their stock of atom bombs Churchill said Russia is demanding in the United Nations that the atom bombs be scrapped and the wea pon outlawed at once Rests on Strength At the present time our only foundation of peace rests upon strength Churchill said The western powers will be far more likely to reach a lasting settle ment without bloodshed if they formulate their just demands while they have the atomic power and before the Russian com munists have got it too Churchill urged the west to bring matters to a head and make a final settlement before Russia gets the bomb The Russians should release their grip on satel lite states free German and Japa nese prisoners they now hold as slaves cease to oppress torment and exploit the parts of Austria and Germany they hold and cease disruptive operations elsewhere in the world before a settlement is reached Churchill said No False Hopes But the war leader of Britain declared he could not encourage you with false hopes of a friendly settlement with soviet Russia The Berlin blockade which he called Russian blackmail may at any time precipitate war Church ill said
