Republican state administration which had complete control over the state government at that time when One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE WTAD Qulnoy 930 Sunday KGLO Sunfliy W01 IGlOl Thursday WSD1 City S10 Saturday Womens Role in Elections T wish I knew what influence our womens vote is going to have on the Presidential election next week Ive made a point of talk ing to quite a few people who might be expected to have infor mation on this subject but I must confess to you that I have found no meeting of minds One school of thought contends that the only effect of giving women the right of suffrage has been to increase the total vote cast in any given election This viewpoint assumes that by and large husbands and wives have the same ideas about candidates and issues This will be the tenth time women have been permitted to participate in a Presidential elec tion The first time was in 1920 just after the adoption oi the 19th Amendment to our Constitution The number of women going to the polls that year was disap pointingly small to advocates of suffrage and to this day it doesn1 compare too favorably with male voting May Go Into Lead But theres no disposition in either political camp this year to overlook or pass lightly over the feminine vote The allimportant statistical fact is that there are appreciably more American wom en eligible to vote than there are eligible men This could be the year they surpass the total of mens votes Some authorities are predicting that very thing How to attract their favor and how to get the women to the polls are questions which face both parties at this moment Neither money nor effort is being spared in the attempt to come up with a right answer It seems quite clear that political interest among women is on the upswing According to the latest popula tion breakdown there are 105 million Americans who could qualify for the vote on Nov 6 Of these million are female against males That is a mar gin of almost two and a half mil lion for the distaff side Four years ago it was calcu lated that 55 per cent of the wom en of voting age went to the polls as against 73 per cent of the men of voting age But heres the part of the study of special interest They Really Liked Ike It has been concluded that per cent of the womens vote was for Eisenhower while only per cent of the male votes were for Ike This would support the claim that women played a deci sive role in his election Statisticians are of the opinion that although Eisenhower almost certainly would have been elected jn 1952 if no women had gone to the polls his whopping majority in both the popular vote and in the electoral college would have been greatly reduced Just why the women who were so cool toward Thomas E Dewey in 1948 should have been so favor able to Eisenhower in 1952 has been the subject of much study The one most common conclusion is that they were drawn to Ikes promise to end the war in Korea One authority on the subject Louis Harris put it this way are less hardboiled CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 Loveless was mayor of Ottumwa including the audit of all munici pal records State Audit Their audit approved of all of the business transactions during the Loveless administration The Loveless record was such that the people of Ottumwa who knew him best and in apprecia tion of the good service rendered the city reelected him for a sec ond term by a larger majority than he received when he first ran for the office of Pierson in remarks delivered to a Polk County Republican workers meeting said he had been to Ottumwa to find out how Loveless was other things regarded Among Pierson said he That there wasa lack of control over purchasing procedures in Ottumwa and many purchase were made without proper order or authority and many vouchers for expenditures from city funds were not substantiated by item ized Spent Large Sums That while Loveless was mayor Ottumwa spent large sums of money for grading and ocking the city streets and for pur chasing and renting street equip ment but you never even called for That one large tractor and scraper which cost over was purchased without any calls for bids That the Ottumwa Committee for Civic Progress charged that city street department labor and equipment had been used for pur poses other than for the benefit of the taxpayers of Ottumwa yet those charges were never followed Pierson also said Today you talk about lowered taxes but yesterday when you were mayor you raised taxes raised the number of employes and increased city employment to the point where supervisors had to tell street employes to stay out of sight to avoid public comment Today you talk about bringing new industry to Iowa but yester day when you were mayor 54 business firms left CROWD GATHERS IN BUDAPEST A crowd gath ers around an overturned streetcar and a burned out Soviet tank in Budapest Hungary as fighting in that AP Wlrephoto city

rehearing was filed Monday in the case in which the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that a moth er cannot be held in contempt of court for failing to comply with a divorce decree specifying she must rear her child in a specific religion The request for rehearing was filed by attorneys for District Judge Harvey Uhlenhopp Judge Uhlenhopp ordered Mrs Gladys M Lynch Clarion to comply with a 1953 divorce decree or face punishment for contempt of court The decree in granting Mrs Lynch custody of one son speci fied that she should rear the child as a Catholic A contempt cita tion said she had not been doing this In reversing Judge Uhlenhopps ruling that Mrs Lynch had no choice but to comply with the de cree the high court said that among other things the decree was too vague in its directions as to how Mrs Lynch should com ply with it Orders Civilians Out of 4 States Israel Mobilizes Its Reserves JERUSALEM ized its reserves and the united States began the evacuation of some of its citizens from
