SATURDAY, MARCH SO, 1940 BLYTTTEVTLLE (AUK,)' COURIER NEWS [Presidential Primary^ 1 'Picture Vote May Show Changes in National Political Trends j By NCA Service | WASHINGTON. March 23.—Right \ after April Fool's Day, Hie Battle of (lie Ballots begins to yet liot. Primaries In Wisconsin on April 2, ami In Illinois and Nebraska April S) will usher in the real shooting on the presidential front. Everything up to now lias been just skirmishing. True, cast Tennessee, where a gentle rain of TVA benefits has been falling for years, has voted 5-1 for n third term for President Roosevelt. New Hampshire has picked a full slate of Democratic delegates for Roosevelt, But the Democrats ran so far behind the Republicans that it suggests Uie Democratic candidate won't matter in New Hampshire anyway at election lime. WISCONSIN BECOMES FIRST BATTI.EFIEI,1> Those were skirmishes. First real battle will be in Wisconsin. Here voters will choose between Roose- t 1 PreiLdenttol PrimQiici \ 1 m Thete Stotei Ff^uret belaw dates Indicate number ol Democratic and Ro- publican delegates in ttate. veil and Garner, and Dcwey and Vandenberg. between Imporlance of the primary lies in whether the Democrats or the Republicans poll Ihe highest vote. It is presumed thai Roosevelt will beat Garner easily among Ihe Democrats, since (lit! progressive wing of the Democrats and the La Follelle Progressives can scarcely vote for Garner. There are two distinct Democratic Roosevelt slates: an official party one, and another "maverick" progressive Democratic group. The interesting point .will \K how big n total will these two Roosevelt, the Garner, and the Progressive votes run up? And will that tolal be bigger than the total for Dewey nnd Vnndenberg? I" short, will Wisconsin's recent lapse back into Republicanism at the last slate elections carry over into the national scene? YOUTH BACKS DEWBY IN PRIMARY Dewey seems lo have the inside track among the Republicans. His delegalcs are active, and the New Yorker plans to stump the state just before the primary. . . Younger Republicans generally support Dewey as the more pro- the two, while the is for Vanrtenberg. 1 gressive of older guard _, The latter, despite his compara"- tlvely progressive record in Congress, is tagged as a Hoover holdover. There is a definite "stop- Dcwcy" element in this election. Election year (urns Uie country into :i jungle laud of primary fled ions, and here's when and where '.hey are to be held. In stales not having presidemiul preference primaries, assorted gubernatorial, senatorial and congressional contests will be decided. SCHOOL NEWS HIOll SCHOOL NKWS Heads Business Education Club.

Turner presented Ihcm with a new set of science readers. in the Wisconsin primary, plans to stump there against. Dewey. Bob Taft, the Ohio hope, is not entered either. He is expected to make his big drive later, remaining content for the present to pick up delegates here and there in a quiet (but effective) way. In Illinois, on April 9. the vote for Roosevelt might possibly be the deciding factor on whether or nol he runs for a third term. Here the President is opposed by his vice president, John Garner, whose workeis have been very active and aggressive. SCANDAL THREATENS IN ILLINOIS There Is deep dissatisfaction there with the Kelly-Hush machine, and the strange death of P. Lyden Smith, right-hand man-Jor the ill and ineffective Governor Homer, seems prelude to a first-class scandal. .7 Smith, found dead In. a hospital bathtub, was officially dead of natural causes, but suicide rumors flew wide and will not be silenced. As custodian of the state Democratic organization's campaign chest, he was called "The Man With 10,000 Secrets." Rumors of graft and gravy still cluster around the stale and Chicago Democratic machines, which are the most active proponents of a third term. GARNEKITES MIGHT SHIFT VOTES TO DEWEV is unopposed on the Republican ballot, though both Tuft and Vanrtenberg are working to line up the lllinoi.5 delegation. Garner workers have no illusions that they will win in Illinois. They hope lo show that a third- term nomination would be poison and to suggest that however many votes Garner gets, those votes would go to any Republican nominee at the election rather than to Roosevelt. Garnerites have campaigned " issue. largely on that specific Scattering potshots of the early primaries will thus turn to the steady roar of serious campaigning when Wisconsin and Illinois begin firing early In April.
