In doing research on the Constitution of the State of Iowa they discovered that the state constitution prohibits women' frorn voting.

' * »> • * , Football was developed to be enjoyed, like all othet- sports. It . is a shame to let a few word thumpers ruin a wholesome but friendly rivalry. And. this y$ar it appeared that partisanship was remaining on a more even keel. Well, another presidential election is being settled. The disappointments and the triumphs will be short-lived. The victors will naturally feel a brief period of exultation, but then comes the impact of reality that public office carries with it more than glory, a responsibility that is not always roses. •-•',•• It is .a step in the right direction, it seems to us, to • place county elective otfices on a four-year basis. With two-year terms an office holder no more than gets settled back than it is time to hit the campaign trail again, » » • And perhaps a non-partisan runoff for county office might be a forward step.

Expect County Level Contests To Be Close - KossUth county, as well as all of Iowa, was turning out heavily to vote today, in the 1960 presidential election. On a state level a total of 1,« 300,000 votes has been predicted. The previous high total vote in Iowa was in 1952 when 1,264,000 ballots were cast. ; •' • ' With -a somewhat reduced population in Kossuth county, it is doubtful if any new record will be set here, but a very high percentage of possible votes is indicated. All four Algona wards reported a strong vote'in the .opening hours after 8 a.m. today.' Polls, close at 8 p.m. Election precincfsV.. can start tabulating votes after the "first 50 ballots have been cast. Predictions Vary , Predictions on the outcome are as numerous as pellets-in a shot- ^ gun cartridge. '"" All indications have been that Vice President Nixon,seems fairly certain of carrying Towa. Yet there has been a "silent vote" uncovered by almost every pollster' in all parts of the pbuntry. This undisclosed vote could swing many pivotal states one way or the other. . . ; Governor 'Hersehel ; Loveless, running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Tom Martin, was believed to have,a slight edge over Jack Miller, but not by any large total. In the governorship race, Norman Erbe has seemed to hold an edge on Nick; M'cMarius. Yet, at the State -University ofi-Iowa, where." Nixon received a large margin over Senator Kennedy, McManus defeated Erbe. Both are University of Iowa graduates. Coad Vs. Riehm Congressman Merwin Coad, engaged in a hot battle with Curtis Riehm, was thought to be in the lead, but heavy artillery was pointed at, Coad in the closing days of the campaign. As. the governor and senator races went so would go the balance of the party tickets fop state office, observers felt. A ding-dong fight between John J. Brown of Emmetsburg and Max Soeth of Estherville for the state senate seat held for the last few years by Duane Dewel of Algona, was also in progress. Indications were that Soeth would probably carry his home county, Emmet, but that Brown would do likewise in his county of Palo Alto. Thus Kossuth, the third county in the district, might hold the key to the final out-, come. On the county level, major contests for office were taking place for recorder, auditor, county attorney and state representative. County Contests Clara Walker, incumbent, has faced a vigorous campaign by Milton Norton. Both are from Algona. Glee Bullock of Burt is challenging Marc Moore for the office of county auditor held by the latter. Bullock ran strong as a write-in candidate, although defeated, two years ago. Two Algona attorneys, James Andrea- ser. and Gordon Winkel, squared off for the county attorney post held by the latter, and Casey Loss, incumbent state represen- etive, was being challenged by Mrs C. C. Inman of Bancroft for the legislative position. Rosella Voigt, county treasurer, Alma Pearson, clerk of the district court, and Ralph Lindhorst, county sheriff, had no for-, mal opposition in the general election. Two of three supervisor districts had party contests. Incum- bant Charles Plathe from south Kossuth was challenged by L. J. White in the first district John Rode, fourth district incumbent, faced a challenge from Ben Sieh- Iniann, and Tony Kollasch in the fifth district (north end) had no competition. Gets Scholarship Norman Mitchell, son of Mr and Mrs Donald R. Mitchell of Burt, has been awarded a $300 scholarship from the Vita-Craft Corp. for study at Drake University during the 1960-61 academic year. The scholarship, based on achievement, was presented to Mitchell Nov. 3. Mitchell worked for Vita-Craft as a salesman during the summer. Mitchell is a senior in the college of business administration at Drake.
