A thinl article, Immeilialcly followhif (iiese, will afford a i-oncise, general word-, picture of current political feel- hiff throughout the country. BY FRAZIER HUNT Copyright, 1936, NBA Service, Inc. Despite the Townsend-Couijh- lin-Lcmke combination California is a five to one bet for Roosevelt, Most observers vary only in their estimates of the Roosevelt majority. These run from 250,000 to more than 500,000 for Roosevelt. Townscmd is going to desperate extremes to force his followers lo turn from Roosevelt to Lemke—or even Landon. His personal bitterness against Roosevelt apparently knows no bounds. Ills hate had oeen growing slowly for the past year but the Congressional Investigation of the whole Town-! send Plan organization set It off like a firecracker. Today in Dr i Townsend's own mind the de-' feat of Roosevelt is. almost-more 1 Important than the election of, Tmviiscnri-pledgcd Conyresmen. j Townscml Plea "ignored • '• In the southern third of California, centering about the sunny I cities of San Diego and Los An] geles, the venerable doctor has literally lens of thousands of true believers who arc being pleaded with to pass up Iheir blrd-In-lhe- hand relief benefits, P.W.A. jobs, and social security, under Roosevelt, and vote against him. But apparently only a relatively small ]>ro|»rtion will do Uiis. Most of them are too canny horsctraders lo waste Iheir vole on a third party, and their mystic belief in Roosevelt pe.rsists despite their indignation at the Administration in permitting the Townsend Investigation. In San Diego County — where Towsendilcs claim 40,000 members—a determined drive to persuade the doctor's followers to change their Democratic registration before the August 25th primaries resulted in a tolal shift of exactly 384 votes. This left Ihe Democrats still 10,807 hi the lead -64,192 registered Democrats against 47,985 Republicans. Cer- • Blnly it proved lhat Dr. Townsend's impassioned voice has little political magnetism when it comes to the Presidential election. In the Congressional elections, however, n frightened man is the ambitious candidate who does not pledge hiaiself body nnd soul to the Plan. Every Townscndite is a thorn in his side. Ordinarily election years arc hectic limes in California, and Political fever runs as wide a range as Uic temperatures In the state's snow-capped mountains and plain-fringed valleys. i j But ib dale Alf Landon has failed to impress Ills personality on the dwellers of the Pacific Coast. The Kansas budget-balancing feat of the Governor has less appeal than in the East. And somehow or oilier the mounting national debt Is not viewed with such alarm ns in other sections of this vast country. Unemployed Back Hooscvclt . Part of this reaction is due lo | the tremendous unemployment and relief problem in the southern third of the slate. In Los Angeles county alone live 45 per cent of "ic state's population, and one out of every four are on relief of one kind or another. These unfortunates arc resigned to a limited dole, and the one hope they look forward to Is a bigger and belter [Imnd-oul. "More than 85 |«r cent of them are for Roosevelt," "a man who knows the true unemployment situation, and views it calmly, said to me. "And Hie same Is true of i Sinclair's old EPIC followers. jMosl of the original 800,000 who voted for Sinclair are back In the Democratic ranks . . . It's a two lev one bet that Roosevelt will car- iv California by more than 300,000." In San Francisco and all Northern California Townsend Is less strong than In (lie southern part (Continued on page three) Rooscvcll Visits Droulh Arc; Lashed by winds and begrimed bj Ami fiom tl.e dirt roads 'over which he had traveled President Roosevelt Is shown on one of his many stops In the North Dakota drouth area.
