Politics Still Hot In Iowa Look Ahead to '54 Senate Race By Dwight McCormack Des Moines, June 7 CflP)- lowa'a Republican and Democratic state presidential conventions and Its primary election ere practically In the archives. But the open season on politics goes on unabated. Post-mortems have given way to a broadening scope looking as far ahead as 1964, and even 1986. The focus for those years is on the U. S. senatorial elections. The statehouse, a hotbed of politics and speculation any time, has It that there already arc six good prospects for republican senatorial candidacies in '64. They are Attorney General Robert L. Larson, Gov. William S. Bcardsley, national commlttcoman- elcct Robert K. Goodwin, Congressmen James I. Dolllvcr of Fort Dodge and H. R. Grose of Waterloo, and Mrs. Dorothy Houghton of Red Oak. She is Immediate past national president of the Federation of Women's clubs. # * THE REASONING behind a prospective loaded republican senatorial field in 1954 Is that U. S. Senator Guy M. Gillette of Cherokee, the only democrat In the Iowa congressional delegation, comes up for reelection then. The only rcteronco to the 1996 senatorial election so far Is that there Isn't likely, as of now, to be much of a contest on the Repul>- lican Ride then. That Is because Senator Bourke B. Hickenloopcr Is expected to seek n third term that year. Generally speaking, plenty of republicans would like to run against democrat Gillette, but few would want to oppose republican Hick­ enloopcr. The senator is definitely a party organization man and If ho wants to continue it Is unlikely that any other republican closely Identified with the organization would oppose him. * m * GETTING BACK to the present, the sights arc, on the Republican biennial state convention hero July 2S. . The convention will make the party's nomination for lieutenant govtirnoh None of'H»6''<trar candidates for the G. O. P. choice In Monday's primary election got the required 85 per cent of the vote for outright nomination. In Republican dominated Iowa it is especially Important this year who wins the party's nomination for lieutenant governor. Normally, ;ho G. O. P. nominee is the victor n the November general election. This also pertains as to governor. It follows then, that if Beardaley is reelected next fall and runs for the senate In 1954, the lieutenant governor would have a head start toward succeeding to the governorship. The candidates for the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor In the primary were State Senators Aldcn L. Doud, Douds; Leo Elthon, Fertile, and R. J. Oilman, Storm Lake, along with Ralph B. Slippy, former Waterloo mayor. * * m THE CONVENTION would not necessarily bo confined to selecting one of the four. In 1948, the republican convention made the nomination for secretary of state and chose Rollo H. Bergcson of Sioux City, who had not been on the primary ballot. Also for the present, the tempo is picking up In Iowa on the Democratic presidential nomination. While U. 8. Senator Estes Kefauver of Tennessee is generally conceded the edge, three other candidates will come hero In the next couple of weeks to seek support. They are V. 8. Senators Richard B. Russell of Georgia and Robert Kerr of Oklahoma, and W. Averell Harriman, foreign aid chief. They want to contact the 44 Iowa dole- gates who will cast the state's 24 votes at the national convention opening In Chicago July 21.
