Dirksen Better Known Than His Democratic Opponent EDITOR'S NOTE—This is one of a series of stories highlighting election campaigns by key states, j By WILLIAM J. CONWAY "CHICAGO (AP) — Sen. Everett McKinley Dirksen shuttled between Illinois and Washington during his campaign for a third term—and found himself in the limelight at both ends of the line. His position in the beam of public attention points up one advantage Dirksen holds over the Democrat who is striving to unseat him, Rep. Sidney R. Yates. Dirksen is much better known. But while Dirksen's role as Republican leader ofjhe U.S. Senate held him in the capital most of the autumn, Yates spent considerable time introducing himself downstate and renewing acquaintances in his native Chicago. Yates got what he most wanted Oct. 19. President Kennedy flew to Springfield and Chicago and asked Illinoisans to elect Yates. But 60 hours after Kennedy finished hi s campaign speech in Chicago's MoCormick Place, Dirksen was at O'Hare Field, waiting for an Air Force plane to whisk him back to Washington. The President wanted to confer with him and other congressional leaders about the Cuban crisis. As the campaign moved into Its last lap, the consensus of a halt dozen political writers in Chicago and Springfield was that Dirksen would defeat Yates by a margin that varied in the estimates from close to comfortable. The choice before the voters involves wide contrast.' Dirksen, 66, put in 16 years in the House before he won his first Senate term by 294,394 votes and his second by 357,469. He has sided with President Kennedy on some issues, notably the $100-million fund for loans to the United Nations, but he ha s opposed him on much domestic legislation. Yates, 53, a lithe, energetic lawyer who is serving' his seventh term in Congress from Chicago's 9th District, has backed the New Frontier program on 97 per cent of his House votes. He believes many voters especially like his stand for medical care for the aged; tied to Social Security. Illinois Republicans have been aiming some of their 'campaign pitches at citizens' pocketbooks. Their billboards bear such messages as: "Put the lid on taxes. 1 ' Their platform pledged winners of administrative offices to cut payrolls 10 per cent. The hold-the-line promises may stem from the April primary when Chicago voters rejected six bond issues involving $66 million for public improvements that had been proposed by Mayor Richard J. Daley. In addition to U.S. senator, Il- linoisans will elect a state treasurer and a superintendent of public instruction—<posts now held by Democrats—and a clerk of the Supreme Court, a job now in Republican hands. They also will fill 24 seats in Congress, a net loss of one via reapportionment. There were 25 seats at stake in 1960. The Democrats took 14, the Republicans 11. 11 Grid TMITK LI UIIU lUQIII} Still «•«•«» «??*? Wednesday.
