Oat yield of 45 bushels an acre is down from the 62 bushels an acre yield a year ago. For apples and peaches the September 1 outlook was brighter. The statisticians forecast a commercial apple crop of 2,400,000 bushels, 60 per cent larger than last year.

But don't bet on it. Six weeks from election day, President Johnson appears to be ahead or even in all but one of >the midland states. He is profiting by defections from the Republican ranks and, in some cases, from Republican candidates who can't seem to warm up to Barry Goldwater. But in almost every state there is a common impounderable: How many voters, Democrats as well as Republicans, will vote for Goldwater because they think .the Negro struggle for civil (rights has Tipton County Library open Monday-Wednesday- Friday till 8:00 p.m. C-tf Try Our New Customer Fertilizer Service We can now supply you with top quality Royster i • * Bulk Fertilizer!

If their numbers are large, these "backlash" voters could hurt the Democrats ibadly in some of their old stamping grounds — Southside , Chicago, labor-minded Detroit, Indiana's steel cities and the Polish wards of, Milwaukee. They could also mean a big difference in the returns from Missouri's iBootheel and in the blue grass country of Kentucky. LBJ Outlook Bright Still, the over all outlook is bright for Johnson in the Middle West. He appears well ahead in Michigan. Missouri and Kentucky seem to be leaning his way while Illinois and Wisconsin rate as tossups. Goldwater holds the edge in Indiana, but things could change by Nov. 3. President Kennedy carried only three of these states in 1960 and one of them, Illinois, was a squeaker. Michigan and Missouri were the others. On the basis of his early showing, Johnson appears to be running stronger in the Midwest than his predecessor. One factor which could help him is a seeming unwillingness by some GOP candidates on the .state level to 'tfave the Goldwater banner with wholehearted enthusiam. Michigan Gov. George Romney is the standout example. Running in a state where the Negro and labor votes are both heavy, Romney has said of Goldwater and his running mate, Rep. William E. Miller, "I accept them, but I don't endorse them." In Illinois, GOP gubernatorial candidate Charles H. Percy insists he is a staunch Goldwater man while the Democrats insist he isn't. Wilbur Renk and Warren Knowfes, the Republican candidates for senator and governor in Wisconsin, talk little about Goldwater. The same is true of Indiana's Lt. Gov. Richard O. Ristine, who is running for governor. Wallace Got Votes On Goldwater's side, an Alabaman had the Democrats in both Wisconsin and Indiana worried. Gov. George C. Wallace went into the- Democratic presidential primaries of both states last spring and came out boasting he had twice "shaken the eye .teeth of the liberals." True or not, he had proven that substantial numbers of Democrats would vote against favorite son "standins" for President Johnson, largely on the civil rights issue.

Why hot ask us? • ADL^ft 'SSK&S SHARPSVILLE, INDIANA M3&97 Wallace managed to take Lake County, the Indiana steel- making center which went for Kennedy by 54,000 votes in 1960. In Wisconsin, he racked up 30 percent of the vote, taking much of it from traditionally Democratic wards in Milwaukee. After the first three week 6V all-out campaigning, this is how the Midwest election picture shaped up: ILLINOIS: One of the hottest political battlegrounds in the nation, with experts unwilling to call the' turn. Going for tht Democrats is the last of the old fashioned big city machines, expertly directed by a political master, Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley .i But Goldwater has a devoted following among most) Republican leaders—a following) which ftas sometimes earned Illinois the title of "Goldwater country." Percy is fighting a hard campaign against incumbent Gov. Otto Kerner and this race, too, rates as a tossup. Percy is appealing to independent voters and he could run ahead of Goldwater, particularly in the Chicago suburbs where the Illinois race may be decided. MICHIGAN: Johnson and Romhey both appear to be comfortably ahead, but a Johnson landslide—300,000 votes or more — could bury Romney, too. Otherwise, there appeared to be little chance for congress- 'man-at-large Neil Staebler, / Romney's opponent, to get into | the governor's mansion at Lansing. Democratic Sen.- Philip A. Hart also looked in good shape as he sought a second term. He hasn't had a chance to campaign much, though, and Mrs. Elly Peterson, former assistant chairman of the Republican National Committee and an adept politician, is making the. most of it in her bid to unseat him. Democrats had feared "backlash" would be a big factor in the Michigan election, but the state got through the summer without any major racial tensions. A possible yardstick was a Democratic primary contest this summer between a congressman . : who had Voted for the civil rights act and one who hadn't. The civil rights man won. INDIANA: This'state hasn't (Satisfaction Guaranteed) voted Democratic in a presidential election since it rejected .Al Landon in 1936, but the (Hoosiers could change. Appearances are that Goldwater will take the state, but not by the 225,000 votes which Richard M. Nixon piled up over Kennedy in 1960. Democratic Gov. Malthrw E.. Welsh can't succeed himself and his signing of a state sales tax bill last year may hurt the [Democrat who wants' to follow him, Lafayette lawyer Roger D. Branigan. In the Indian Senate battle, Democratic Sen. Vance Hartke is campaigning ( up and down the state and his [energy may prove the difference in his contest with state Sen. D.' Russell Bontrager. WISCONSIN: Nobody but the official party. spokesmen., are guessing • out loud about this one, even though Harry S Truman was the last Democratic presidential contender to take Wisconsin. Democratic Sen. William Proxmire, going for a second term, is one of the hardest-working campaigners in Wisconsin history. A recent farm poll showed him well ahead of Wilibur Renk, a gentleman farmer from Sun Prairie. Democratic Gov. John Reynolds could have greater trouble against Knowles. MISSOURI: This is a traditionally Democratic state, except for the Eisenhower years, and Johnson figures to do better than Kennedy. Goldwater is [coming up strong and could score in the southeast boot heel and in the south and south central areas, which usually go Republican. Veteran Sen. Stuart Symington could be in trouble in his battle with an aggressive Republican, Springfield attorney I Jean Paul Bradshaw. Civil rights rates as an issue here. Fiscal responsibility is the major issue in the tussle for governor between Democratic Secretary of State Warren E. Hearnes and Republican Ethan jshepley. KENTUCKY: Most observers believe Kennedy's religion beat !him here in 1960 and that's no longer an issue. With no major .state races on the ticket, Jo'..-n[son has a good chance to be the first Democrat to take the Blue Grass State since Adlai E. Stevenson squeaked through with 700 votes in 1952.
