Vote for Johnson in Wisconsin May Determine Next Governor This is th« last In a series of five preview stories on Tuesday's election in Wisconsin. Bv HARVEY BREUSCHER MADISON (AP) - Wisconsin voters will make a choice for governor Tuesday between a Democrat who has the job and wants to keep It and a Republican who has spent 20 years preparing for such office. Gov. John W. Reynolds has pinned his chances on the predicted success of President Johnson. And the Republican challenger, Warren P. Knowies, expects to win unless Johnson swamps the GOP presidential nominee Barry Godwater In Wisconsin. A Democratic victory would add two years to the party's already unprecedented hold on the governorship. Not before Reynolds' election in 1962 had Democrats claimed more than a four-year continuous run in the executive office. Season's Candidate Republicans have fielded their most polished and seasoned candidate to stop the Democratic reign in a state traditionalists still regard as Republican.

In 14 years as a state legislator, he was his party's floorleadcr for 12. Three terms as lieutenant governor followed for Knowies Diough the order was interrupted in IMS when Democrats scored a near sweep of state offices. Reynolds is 43 and has yet to lose a statewide election. When the primary contests are counted—as his supporters always do —his victories come to six even though he has only held office since 1953. Two terms as attorney general gave Reynolds his springboard to the governorship. Tliere was little spring to spare. He made the jump by 11,955 votes. Reynolds has his bitterest primary contest to thank for some of the strength that is presently hi.-?. In the April 7 presidential pri- marj', he caiTied the fight for Johnson against Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace. The segegationist governor picked up 266,000 votes, but Reynolds won the race and the unstinting support of liberals who are not stirred by President Johnson or Wisconsin Sen.

The governor still is cashing in on antisaies tax talk: there's a much heavier demand for his campaign literature than in 1962, and a variety of polls claim John.son is going to do what no Democrat has done since 194R—carry Wisconsin.

Even the lower figure should nrovide enough "rub off" to Iieip Reynolds squeek through. If the landslide percentages for Johnson are reached. Reynolds' cushion wiU be comfortable. Reynolds is the only Democrat now holding a constitutional office in Wisconsin. The party hopes to pick up at least two more by electing Patrick J. Lucey lieutenant governor and Bronson C. La Follette attorney general. If there's a best bet in the twosome, it's La Follette. Though only 28, he is pushing Republican George Thompson, 46, in his try for a second term. Lucey, a 46-year-old Madison real estate broker, is bumping heads with Lt. Gov. Jack Olson, who showed his voter attraction two years ago in winning the state's second spot while Democrats were taking the first. Secretary Robert C. Zimmerman, a 54-year-old Republican seeking his fifth term, stands unruffled by the fortunes of other candidates. He is the state's top vote getter and is expected to extend his hold on the title in turning back the challenge of Democratic Candidate Theodore J. Griswod, 43, of Livingston. The race for state treasurer matches the Republican incumbent, Mrs. Dena Smith, and Eugene E. Lamb, a Milwaukee Democrat who held the job in 1959-60. Mrs. Smith should remain as Wisconsin's only woman in state office.

Sen-! ate, the poll results .showed a strong preferonce for incumbent Democratic Sen. William Proxmire, who got 55 per cent .support. Republican Wilbur Renkj received the backing of 39 per cent and 6 per cent were undecided. In July, 59 per cent favored Proxmire, 37 per cent chose Renk and 4 per cent were undecided.

Burlington, Wliconsin Wants to Take Away College Scholarships Just one week ago this newspaper endorsed Congressman Henry C. Schadeberg for re-election to Congress. Our reasons were based on Mr. Schadeberg'i positive approach to problems confronting our country and on liis record of achievement over the past four years. Our editorial effort, favored 8-to-O by our board and staff, was directed at supporting Henry Schadeberg, not at attacking his opponent, Lynn Stalbaum. It was not easy to back off from an attack on Stalbaum. Earlier in the campaign he gave us reason to hit him editorially where it would do Mr. Schadeberg the most good. That was when Stalbaum tried, in a public statement, to smear Mr. Schadeberg's character by questioning his honesty. Stalbaum accused Congressman Schadeberg of not being sincere when he voted "yes" on an administration bill. We were poised, set to blast Stalbaum. However, we abandoned the idea. Now we have the impetuous Mr. Stalbaum once again shooting from the hip. Stalbaum has gone too far, and we feel the voters of the district must be told of this latest ill-tempered and ill-conceived action of Lynn Stalbaum that should prove to one and all that he is not fit. to serve the public in the high office which he would have^, you entrust to him. Why? Every member of the State Legislature is allowed to choose one worthy student to receive a scholarship to the University of Wisconsin. To his credit, Lynn Stalbaum^ last year selected a most worthy student as recipient of the scholarship it was his to award. This young man is back at the University in his sophomore year, on his way eventually to a degree in medicine. In last week's edition this newspaper carried a story- containing names of members of the Schadeberg for Congress Campaign Committee. Included in the list was. the name of the student's uncle who initially had sub-> mitted his nephew's name to Stalbaum for consideration!^ as possible recipient of the scholarship. Upon reading;; the uncle's name Stalbaum became irate. He telephoned^ the uncle and threatened to take the scholarship away!| from the nephew if he didn't have this newspaper prin^! a retraction of his support of Congressman Schadeberg. • Stalbaum, obviously no judge of character, under^i) estimated the uncle, who flatly refused to be intimidated,^ even though loss of the scholarship very well could seri-^ ously interrupt, if not completely cancel out, the youngi man's pursuit of a career in a profession. The uncle said; "no" to Stalbaum. Within a very few moments Stalbaum* phoned again and said with finality that he had made upl! his mind and he definitely was going to take the scholar-^ ship away from the boy. q A desperate man may be expected to do some foolish^ things to get a vote--"by hook or crook." But when a* public official uses for purely personal political gain the';| public office he already holds, surely the voters who putw him there have a responsibility to see that they don't^ promote him to a position as Representative in Congress^ where opportunities for abusing the privileges of his-, office of public trust are multiplied many times over. } Two other points. First, the uncle preferred that wot not publish this account because he felt that for him it^ wou d be stooping to Stalbaum's level, which he just;' couldn't do. We respect and appreciate this gentleman's^ position. Yet we don't feel it's stooping to tell the truth* when the truth needs to be told to give insight into the^ methods of operation of some operators. This man is-<^ seeking your votes to put him into very high office—office^ of trust—and you have every right to know all there is to::; know about him. Publishing this editorial is our idea.-* But the uncle is prepared to stand behind it publicly if^ need be. ;* Finally, there seems to us to be a sharp contrast be-^ tween this ruthless behavior of Mr. Stalbaum and tho^ completely non-political method used by Congressman; Schadeberg in nominating young men for appointment* to the United States service academies, the Military; Academy at West Point, the Naval Academy at Annapo-!; lis, the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, and thej Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point. If soma; members of Congress are tempted to award such nomi-i; nations for political considerations, not so with Henryj Schadeberg. Our Congressman selects as nominees andj alternates those young men who achieve the highest!^ scores on competitive exams. This is a merit system.* Through it deserving candidates for the academies ares protected from becoming victims of political hanky<! panky. ^ There are more than 400,000 residents in the 1st WIs-^ consm District. They, too, must continue to be protected^ from such betrayal of trust. But only they—that is, tho« voters among them—can assure themselves of that conA ! "If," Pf^tection by returning Congressman SchadeberUj to Washington. The opportunity comes on November- 3rd, and we are confident they will make the best use olS that opportunity and vote for one of the most respected^ members of the Congress, Henry Schadeberg. 3 •» -Itcprint from Standard Press.
