editorials City Telegram Thursday, November 1, 1962 The Other Road Good for /Comas TS/TO DOUBT several Republicans, or those who normally vote the GOP way, in Garden City aflid vicinity will vote Democratic in the governor's race next Tuesday. . Dale Saffela, the Democrat's candidate, will get hometown and home-area support from many due to a local allegiance. There's also a growing feeling that this area of Kansas is slighted by present offi- • cials in Topeka, and Western Kansas would fare better with one of its residents in the governor's mansion. But the entire state of Kansas should be impressed by the |'give 'em hell" type of campaign which Saffels has and is making for the governorship. The Garden City attorney, for b'oth the primary and next week's general election, has staged one of the most active drives for a political office that the state has seen in years. Prior to his campaign, it was generally accepted over the state that it would be a dull election as far ^as the Kansas governor race was concerned. The pres- '_' ent governor hasn't created much of a stir — in the press nor anywhere else — and issues 'appeared scarce. But Saffels found issues which stirred complacent Kansans. Things weren't as smooth in the state's administration as some thought, and such things as a pregnancy on the women's prison farm caused some rumblings in Topeka. Dale's campaign has been good for Kansas. And he will make a good governor for Kansas. Beautiful Weather, But... A S MUCH AS we are enjoying this Indian summer weather, those most dependent oh the elements want a change. In short, this area needs rain. Beet harvest is in the closing stages, milo harvest is almost done and a good rain would be in order for most farmers. Those of us with parched lawns in town also could use a soaker. But this is the time of year when a pre-winter snow storm could slap down a heavy wet blanket and 3 cause some hardships along with bringing some needed moisture. This wouldn't be unusual for this area. Last year the season's first heavy snow hit in the second week in November,-and other years show some heavy snows as early as the last of October and first of November. Temperatures also have been recorded near the z&ro mark on these mid-fall dates. So it's difficult to complain about a day like yesterday. The temperature was just right, the sun was shining but through a pleasing autumn haze. It was a great day to be about. But if it turns cold and rains or snows, don't fret. It would be just what the doctor ordered. Hal Boyle Says: Candidate Hears Same Ole Words Drew Pearson Reports Geography Has a Big Influence on Polities NEW YORK (AP)—Remarks a political candidate gets tired of hearing just before election time: "Joe, this is no time to slow down. Yesterday you only shook 3,000 hands and kissed 75 babies." "They love you in the 1st Ward all right. It's in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th wards that you're in real trouble." "Somehow we got to get up $500 more for placards—even if your wife has to take in washing." "You've already indorsed tax cuts, motherhood, and the federal highway program. What we need is a hot new issue. How do you stand on the boll weevil?" "The best argument I can think of for sending him to Washington is that it'll get him out of town." "Remember, Joe, if you get elected T don't expect you to forget me. After -all, I passed out more handbills for you ' .an anybody." "Eating that hero sandwich and pizza pie put you in solid with the Italian voters, Joe. You'll find the stomach pump in the back of th e car." • "We could accuse them of character assassination. Our candidate certainly is a character." "We're coming to another crossroads, Joe. Put your shoes back on. It's time to make an- othef speech." "What do you mean you can't eat goulash? Don't you realize this is a Hungarian section?" "The boss from the 3rd Ward just phoned. He says he wants you to do something for his brother-in-law now, not later." "Promise them anything now. You can always forget it later." "Sir, as a representative of the Teen-Agers for Better-Government Committee, I'd like to ask how you stand on birth control, the tariff, the Common Market, Cuba, thermonuclear warfare and, uh, things llk e that." "According to our latest secret poll, Joe, only 10 per cent of the voters are against you. The other 90 per cent don't even seem to know you're running." "Oops, he dropped a baby. Woll boys, there goes the election!" Kansas City University To Increase Tuition KANSAS CITY (AP) — x Jon increases effective next September were announced by the University of Kansas City.

EN ROUTE THROUGH THE MIDWEST — Geography may be doll and prasaic, but it has a highhanded influence on politics. It's largely responsible for the fact that .the Republican party is giving the brush-off to one of its most experienced gubernatorial candidates, former 1 Secretary of tne Interior Fred Seaton in Nebraska, while concentrating on an inexperienced glamor boy, Congressman Bill Scranton, to be governor of Pennsylvania. The reason ifi very simple: Geography. The reason is that the unpopulated prairies of Nebraska have not put up a presidential candidate since William Jennings Bryan, while populous Pennsylvania is a good springboard for the presidential nomination. So young Seranton of the old coal-mining family for which Scranton, Pa., is named, gets the headlines and big GOP push, while Seaton gets the GOP back- of-the-hand. Seaton served as U.S. senator and as an able aide to President Eisenhower. As secretary of the interior, he was quietly competent, honest, effective. He knows government machinery as He knows the printing press of his own newspaper. But .he doesn't know how to scratch a back or press the flesh. His opponent, Gov. Frank "press-the-flesh" Morrison, homey as a Nebraska corn husk, is one of the champion backslaip- pers of Nebraska. Though a Democrat, he is running on a platform of being more Republican than the Republicans. In a state whose homeopathic politics has forgotten the fiery days of Bryan and George Norris, Gov. "Press-the-Flesh" Morrison will probably win. Pennsylvania offers some direct contrasts to Nebraska. There, ex-Mayor of Philadelphia Dick Dilworth, as highly skilled in government as Fred Seaton of Nebraska, is being opposed by th° new GOP glamor boy, Bill Scranton, as pleasing in personality and as highly skilled in flesh- pressing as Democrat Frank Morrison. Scranton, a new GOP congressman, comes from the old anthrn- cite aristocracy which helped to found Scranton, Pa., but which hasn't done much to rescue the city from the anthracite doldrums since. Scranton is a great campaigner, and has been accumulating terrific puiblicity, but when you scratch below tlje headlines you find the picture* isn't quite so rosy. Time Magazine, for instance, published a front-cover story of Bill Scranton the other day. He was signed out as a new GOP potential for president obviously a big boost in his race for governor of Pennsylvania. But when you look backstage you find that Scramton's sister married the president of Time Magazine, James A. Linen. You also find, if you examine the records of Jupiter Island, that most exclusive of all exclusive winter colonies at Kobe Sound, Florida, that William W. Scran- ton, trustee, deeded one-sixth interest in lote 214, 215 and 216, block 87 of Jupiter Island to his sister, Mrs. Sara Linen on May 3, 1961, together with an agreement that the grant was "subject to any restrictions that may be now in force and effect." This 'referred to a restrictive covenant previously accepted by the Scranton. family which has made Jupiter Island out of bounds to both Negroes and Jews. No Jewish families have been accepted at Hebe Sound, and no Negroes unless they are servants. The Hobe Sound property owned by the Scrantons is assessed at $64,750, and its actual value is at least twice that much. Again If you look behind the headlines in the hot Pennsylvania election race, you find that Scranton wais picked for governor at the home of Pennsylvania political boss John J. McClure and has conferred' with him since. John McClure, notorious leader of Delaware county (where, incidentally, I used to live) was sentenced to 18 months in jail and fined $10,000 in a ram-running conspiracy while serving as state senator. He got out of serving when the Prohibition Act was repealed. Another look behind the headlines is worth taking, in regard to the Republican appointment of Maurice Pliner, an ex-police inspector, to probe alleged corruption under Mayor Dilworth in Philadelphia. Nobody could be less qualified to investigate alleged Philadelphia corruption. Pliner was fired by the Diworth administration for using two policemen to build a paneled recreation room in the basement of his home. It so happens that Dilworth was one of the greatest mayors In Philadelphia history and has been so recognized by many leading Republicans. He was the first mayor in the USA to work oii'; a new commuter system with the railroads to prevent downtown streets from being clogged with auto traffic; and his face- lifting of Philadelphia has given that elderly city new enterprise and energy. In contrast to the personal segregation practices of the Scranton family, Dilworth was the first Philadelphia lawyer to take a Negro into his law firm as a full partner, and as district attorney he broke down previous color barriers to appoint Thomas Reed, a Negro attorney, as court room prosecutor. Yet with Republican propaganda playing up Scranton in Pennsylvania as much as it has played down Seaton in Nebraska, the glamor boy of the anthracite may well win. Geography does strange things to politics. Escape from Red China Ends in Death HONG KONG (AP)-AIrs. Liang Mei-ying, 60, travejed several hundred miles from her home in Communist China to the nearby Portuguese colony of Macao. She hid under the deck of a junk and was smuggled into Hong Kong. A cab deposited her Tuesday at her goal—the doorstep of her son's apartment. She collapsed and died before she could ring the doorbell. 3L AS A CHILD we though how neat to be a mother and be able to do everything you wanted to do. Now we know how false a dream this was. Most mothers have little opportunity to do the things they really want to do. And that's only part of the dream's fallacy. The other part is that a mother spends most of her time making everyone else do things they don't want to do. . And therein lies the most difficult part. How simple it would be to niind one's own business and nothing more. What a snap to be able to go about the household chores just as a worker — without cares of being the supervisor, the trouble-shooter, the critic, the reminder, and the referee. What wearies the mother is not so much the labor — few mothers are strangers to work. It's the management. Have the children made their beds, their plans, their apologies? Have they practiced, studied, washed, brushed and packed up. Have they said their prayers, their thank-yous, and their reports. Perhaps every other mother hits a day now and then when she wishes she could be just an Indian and not a chief. When she could sweep with the broom instead of ride it. * * * OUR LEAST ONE, going on 17 months, has passed the place where she merely takes things out Now she puts things away. And that is why we find socks in the oven, bread crusts in the shirt drawer, waste paper in the ironing basket, shoes in the bathtub, etc. * * * IN CASE you have nothing to look forward to once election day has come and gone, there's a six- week campaign to be kicked off on Nov. 15 by the National Pickle Packers Assn.
