The it. Pleasant news these Days i a a -80-no-230mt. Pleasant Iowa tuesday evening sept. Jio 1958 by Carrier 30# per week by mall $7-50 per year by George e. Sokolsky a confused Era much depends upon the next election for it is a forerunner of 1960 when a new president is to be elected. The democrats believe that there is a trend toward them and that they will carry both new York state and California which in practical terms could eliminate both Richard Nixon and Nelson Rockefeller As Republican possibilities. It is now generally taken for granted that Nixon will be nominated on the Republican Side but it is also assumed that if Nelson Rockefeller is elected governor of new York in 1958, he will seek the Republican presidential nomination in 1960. Republicans Are anxious to elect1 William know land As governor of j California because that will arrest the trend in that state toward the democrats. The conservative re publicans Are anxious to have Knowland elected because he repro j sents constructive thinking in the United states. Also if Knowland is elected governor of California there can be no question As to Nixon s nomination by the 1960 Republican convention. The republicans Are also anxious that senators Barry Coldwater and George Malone should be reelected to the United states Senate because they represent the kind of republicanism which regards new York As a Warren of confusion. Too enormous sums of Money Are being poured into Arizona and Nevada to defeat these republicans. Much of that Money comes from new York and some from Washington it is labor Money and Liberal Money often contributed by Bankers who have not yet discovered that they cannot control the United states through their enemies any More than through their friends. Although occasionally they can effect a fix the smart politician stays away from them because Wall Street is like a Sieve where everybody knows what everybody else is doing. Anyhow the combination of labor Racket Money and Wall Street Money often hurts a Good Man. It did senator Pat Mccarran. The Campaign in most parts is too costly and too Dull.
