Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - October 16, 1970, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
J % 7 the it pleasant news partly Cloudy Section one 2 sections vol. 92, no. 244 it. Pleasant Iowa Friday evening october 16, 1970 Price to cents these Days by John Chamberlain when a Campaign is fought without issues for president Richard Nixon the name of the political game this autumn is to reorganize the us. Senate under Republican auspices. This would enable the White House to get its fondest wish which is to be rid of senator j. William Fulbright As head of the Senate foreign relations committee. The flux of the private polls however does not yet indicate the sort of rightward sweep that would end by transforming Fulbright from a major scold into a minority voice in his committee. The campaigns everywhere seem suddenly devoid of issues. Vietnam which had people so stirred up last May gets very Little mention. The Economy is bad in spots but not too bad Overall. The question of the military budget is Over most Peoples Heads. Law and order is an Issue but the candidates Echo one another in their solicitude Lor such things As stopping the flow of narcotics and protecting the police. The campuses and Here we May Cross our fingers Are quiet. The cease fire still holds at Suez. Too where there is apathy prediction becomes most hazardous. Things can work in curious reverse. A leftist politician makes a speech lamenting the fact that the Yale students Arentt going out to Campaign for the leftist senatorial candidate Joe Duffey the chairman of americans for democratic action. But maybe the Yale students Are doing the most they can for Joe Duff a by remaining quiescent. Of they become clamorous it might stir up those to whom vice president Agnew has been appealing. When the Princeton students turned out in Force to help leftists in new Jersey last Spring it roused the right and the whole thing became As they say counter productive. Since the campaigns Are without Strong philosophical trends they Are at the mercy of last minute shifts of purely local concern. Ironically this could leave senator Fulbright in full Possession of his foreign relations committee Post. The republicans think they can beat the Veteran senator Gore in Tennessee and win a senatorial seat for Cramer in Fla. But Republican senator George Murphy is As of Early october Only even up with i challenger congressman John Tunney in California Republican senator Fannin is getting surprisingly Strong opposition from an sex re publican millionaire turned Democrat Sam Grossman in Arizona and Democrat Vance Hartke is putting up a tenacious fight to hold his seat in Indiana. We could end with a very mixed pattern in the Senate races. Who knows maybe the White House will have to depend on three independents Jim Buckley of new York. Tom Dodd of Connecticut and Harry Byrd of Virginia for reorganizing the Senate. Buckley and Dodd would certainly vote to get rid of Fulbright and Byrd might be persuaded. The Issue of Fulbright a domination of the foreign relations committee ought to be stressed in the Campaign. Vietnam May be under control and the death of Nasser May have a temporarily sobering effect on Middle Eastern firebrands but All the signs Point to some rapid changes to the South of us in latin America. Che Guevara made a mess of it in his attempt to Cas Trize Bolivia by importing his own marxist foreign legion but Homegrown bolivian leftists Are As this is written on the verge of succeeding where Guevara failed. As for Chile if the socialist communist coalition St Salvador Allen de is confirmed As president by the chilean Congress on october 24. Only the most wide eyed innocents can believe that non marxist parties in general and the Christian democrats in particular will be Able to maintain the vitality needed to fight another election Campaign six years from now. When 1,400 Miles of the South american Pacific coast Are in communist hands and when the soviets finish constructing that submarine base at Cienfuegos in Cuba it will be a prelude to drastic confrontations elsewhere in the hemisphere. The coming years will be no time for such a Wishful thinker As Fulbright to be speaking As the Senate a voice on foreign relations. But How is he to be sidetracked seemingly there is no Way of getting foreign policy into the autumn Campaign. Nobody wants to upset the Universal yearning for peace. The american people Are retreating within themselves and it would not be surprising if Large r Umbers of them were to stay Home on november 3.
