THETIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Wednesday, Oct. 7 The Tama. Natural Zoo In the western suburbs of Tokyo provides "What approximates the natural habitat for animals instead of the usual cages. Twelve African lions roam freely, while a heavily- xeinforcetl bus conveys visitors over the roads in the walled compounds. The roof of the DUB is strong enough to withstand the pressure of four mature lions leaping simultaneously on it, and the double, full-view windows are bullet-proof as in modern army tanks. Presidential Ouflook The Plains By BRUCE B.BRAKE United Press International DES .MOECES. Iowa (UPI) — There once was a time when the most a Democrat could hope for in a Great Plains election was a strong showing in Minnesota. The other five states could be written off. Times have changed. Republicans still may hold the upper hand in the county seats and state legislatures, but the Democratic ticket of Lyndon B. Johnson and Hubert H. Humphrey has at least a fighting chance in every state of the corn and wheat belt. Kansas, for instance, long has claimed the title as the most Republican stale in the Union. But the race between Johnson and GOP presidential nominee Barry Goldwater at present seems' to be almost even in that state. A recent poll in traditionally conservative western Kansas showed the President has 57.4 percent of the vote, Goldwater 32.5 per cent, and 10.1 per cent undecided. Local Democrats have told Johnson that with a concentrated effort, he can win the Sunflower state. Johnson has promised to appear in Kansas later in the campaign. FDR Last To Win The last Democratic presidential candidate to carry Nebraska was Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but Johnson seems strong tills year. A Lincoln attorney, Richard G.r a d w o h 1, recently formed a "Nebraska Republicans for Johnson'' group. The organization said its members were "alarmed at the takeover cf our party by forces that scorn traditional Republican principals and ideals." Each party can boast a strong favorite, on the state-wide ticket in Nebraska. Democratic Gov. Ilflrank B. Morrison, seeking his third term, is a substantial favorite over the GOP candidate, Lt. Gov Dwight Burney. But U.S. Sen. Roman L. Hruska, a Re' publican, is considered a top- heavy choice to beat Democrat R3vmond Arndt of Columbus. Democrats in the • politically turbulent North Dakota are hoping this is the year to upset the long - standing Republican tradition and pull a big sweep. Johnson and Humphrey are re- .garded as favorites. One recent poll showed 21 of 155 GOP precinct committeemen saying they would vote .for Johnson'. The turning point for. the Democrats was when the politically potent Non - Partisan League— which for years had line'd up with the Republicans—threw its support to the other side. Two recent newspaper polls in South Dakota give Johnson and Humphrey the lead. The first poll had the Democratic candidates far ahead, but a later poll showed their strength dropping. Republicans are counting on Goldwater's appearance at the national corn picking contest near Sioux Tails this month to shoot him ahead. Minnesota for Kennedy Minnesota went for President Kennedy in 1960 and in 1962 elected a Democratic governor —but both races were in doubt down to the last handful of precincts. Hubert Humphrey, however, has always done well in his home state and the John-? son-Humphrey team would appear to be stronger in the Gopher "State than anywhere else in the Great Plains. Contributing to the strength of the Democratic party in Minnesota are solid pockets of organized labor in urban areas, and the spread of the farmers union, in the country. , ..... Goldwater backers in... Iowa had hoped their candidate would run® strong enough in rural areas to offset growing Democratic strength in Des Moines and Mississippi River manufacturing .towns. But they were jolted by a recent poll of Wallaces Farmers Magazine that showed Johnson, favored by 69 per cent of Iowa farmers, while only 28 per cent were for Goldwater. A similar poll at the same time in 1960 had only 46 per cent of Iowa's farniT ers voting for the late John F. Kennedy, ; GOP Aware of Position Republicans apparently are aware of their precarious position in the Great Plains —where once they dominated every election from the president to county coroner. Goldwater and his vice presidential running mate, William E. Miller, have returned again and again to the area to plead their cause. Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon and Pennsylvania Gov. William W. Scranton also have, tilled the traditionally Republican farm country. Humphrey also has made stop after stop in his home area, both before his nomination and now during the campaign. And President Johnson will come to Des Moines this week for what Democrats say will be a major farm policy address. Neither side seems to be gaining any great advantage in the Great Plains. PORNOGRAPHY KIT NEW YORK (UPI)—To make sure they knew what they were opposed to, the 21 members of Mayor Robert F. Wagner's anti- pornography commission were issued kits of materials yesterday. The kits contained copies of two novels, "Fanny Hill" and "Tropic of Cancer," a magazine containing photographs of nude women and a collection of briefs on court cases involving pornography.
