MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 14 1960 neighbors I 7c a Paper Consists of Four No 2ft In Minnesota Coya defies party earns Congress bid MINNEAPOLIS UPI Former Rep Coya Knutson Wednesday won the DemocraticFarmer Labor nomination for Congress in Minnesotas 9th District despite intense opposition from her partys leadership Mrs Knutson an exschool teacher and twoterm congress woman downed state Sen Roy Wiseth the DFLs endorsed candidate in a close contest and won a chance to recapture her old congressional seat by her vote in Tuesdays Minnesota pri mary Party leaders including Sen Eugene J McCarthy invaded the sprawling district which embraces the northwest quarter of the state to campaign for Coyas foe I certainly believe in the open primary and Im gratified by the results she said Experts and politicians alike were stunned by her win They had predicted dismal failure for her attempt to beat the picked candidate of the party It was the second time in four years that Mrs Knutson upset party leadership Turnover capital inevitable Many bags being packed By DICK WEST WASHINGTON UPI Al though the elections are still two months off the U S capital al ready is getting ready for the opening of the lame duck sea son I saw signs of it a day or two ago when I was looking at the bulletin board in the cafeteria of the House office building The board was covered with notices of apartments for rent furniture for sale and shareexpense travel to distant places The notices were posted by congressional employes who for one reason or another are mak ing plans to leave town In some cases their bosses are volun tarily retiring from the 1 a w making trade this year leaving them without a patron Others are merely anticipating the worst come November ONE POOR secretary was even offering a wedding gown for sale but I dont suppose that had anything to do with pol itics At any rate the notices are indicative of the massive fruit basketturnover which will take place here after the elections Then the air will be filled with the mournful cries of lame duck congressmen who have been winged by the electorate and must vacate the premises by January Since congressional elections occur every Two years this is a rather common phenomenon It will however be accompanied this year by a relatively rare event a change in administra tion Whatever the outcome of the balloting we will acquire a new president which also means a new cabinet new agency heads and other displacements in the executive branch ACCORDING TO a report pub lished this week only about 1 200 Civil Service jobs will be up for grabs on inauguration day the rest of the 2386000odd fed eral workers being immune from patronage This figure however does not give a complete picture of the migratory chain reaction that takes place when the White House changes tenants In addi tion to the goings and comings of ousted government workers and their replacements there usually is a wholesale reshuffle in the staffs of various business labor and trade organizations which maintain headquarters here The van line industry esti mates that a minimum of from 7000 to 10000 households will be moved from Washington be tween now and January Pre sumably as many or more will be brought in The turnover is expected to be higher if Democrat John F Ken nedy defeats Republican Rich ard M Nixon in their battle to succeed

address the United Nations General As sembly before Khrushchev speaks there The White House announced that Eisenhower will go to New York Thursday Sept 22 to address the General As sembly THIS DATE would put Eis enhower well ahead of the Soviet premier in the speak ing list under United Nations procedure There was no immediate in dication when Khrushchev will get his turn but it was thought probably that he will not make his speech until after Eisenhower returns to Washington Eisenhowers decision marked a sudden shift in plans presumably dictated by an administration desire to prevent Khrushchev from stealing the propaganda spot light unchallenged THE PREVIOUS adminis tration plan was for Eisen hower to go before the Gen eral Assembly some two or three weeks after Khrushchev left New York thus avoiding any prospect of a facetoface meeting Secretary of State Chris tian A Herter was to have been the top US spokesman with the task of replying from day to day to any Khrushchev propaganda attacks and boasts about Soviet scientific and military might This administration strat egy however was known to have worried British authori ties who felt com petition was needed to coun
