GOP Has No Place To Go But Up in '65 By EUGENE J. CADOU United Press. International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)— The Indiana Republican party has no place to go but up in 19S5. The GOP of Hoosierdom is at its lowest point at the end of 1964 since the New Deal days of "Franklin D. Roosevelt. The smashing Democratic victory in the November election left the GOP bereft of both U.S. enatorial seats, the governorship and all state offices, con- rol of the General Assembly, minus hundreds of county offices and a majority of the congressional seats. Just before the election there were seven GOP and only four Democratic congressmen. Now there will be six Democratic and five GOP congressmen. City halls were the only bright locations for the Republicans. In 1963, they won 61 municipal elections, compared to 50 for the Democrats. It is hard to believe that just one year later, the legislative lineup was reversed to 78-22 in he House and 35-15 in the Senate. First Presidential Loss President Johnson carried In­ diana overwhelmingly. He was the first Democratic White House bidder to do so since Franklin D. Roosevelt overcame the of Alfred L'andon in this'state in 1938. That's 26 years ago. Even Republicans Tom Dewey and Wendell L. Willkie won in Indiana, although losing in the total balloting. Swept into political oblivision in the Democratic landslide were such Republican bigwigs as Lt. Gov. Richard O. Ristine, State Sen. D. Russell Bontrager, Congressman Donald C. Bruce, and Earl Wilson, State Sen. Roy Conrad, and a host of GOP lesser lights. There is a terrific vacuum in leadership ? which H-. Dale Brown, Indianapolis, the 11th District chairman; Robert E. Gates, Columbia City, and members of the newly-organized Indiana Republican Mayors' Association are attempting to fill. Conservation Slipping These ambitious politicos, as the old year passes, are striving to present a new Republican image in which right-wingers will be suppressed. They apparently are attempt­ ing to exert enough pressure on Walter Beardsley, national committeeman, and Mrs. Cecil Harden, national committeewomari, to induce them to vote for ouster of Dean Burch, the Republican national chairman hand-picked by Sen. Barry M. Gbldwater. ' It fwill be a rough road to travel. The Indiana Goldwater group, headed by Leslie Duv'all, Indianapolis, is a conservative crew verging almost on fanatacism: They are last ditchers who believe that the 26 million who voted for the Arizonati can't be wrong. The rebellion in the state threatens State Chairman Robert N. Stewart and in the nation is distressing Rep. Charles A. • Halleck, Rensselaer, who may be ousted as GOP minority floor leader soon. There may be clarion calls for party stalwarts of the past to take over, including former Sen. Homer E. Capehart and erstwhile Govs. Ralph F. Gates and Harold W. Handley.

Branigin is beset by a flock of job hunters and is perturbed about formulating a legislative program that will appeal to the numerous divergent elements of the Democratic party.

She is wishing for COMFY® SLIPPERS Home Trade Shoes Financial By JESSE BOGUE UPI Financial Editor NEW YORK (UPI) — Whether it is- a fire truck or an office desk, a piece of farhi equipment or a trailer, said J. Russell Duncan, the know-how in the making of it goes beyond mere fabricating skilll Duncan is chairman of the board of Sterling Precision Corp., manufacturer of a wide range of automotive and mobile equipment, machinery and office furniturt. He came to hi:; job from Minneapolis-M o 1 i n e, farm equipment maker which faced the same rough prospect:! when he joined it as did Sterling when he assumed management in early 1962. Minneapolis-Moline, now a part of White Motors, Inc., got back on its feet under Duncan's management; the balanpe sheet at Sterling has shown a turn-, around from losses in the millions in • 1962 to an emergence into black ink last year and this. In that time, there have been acquisitions, but careful ones; and there has been reorganization wUhin. "We don't just bring in executives wholesale," said Duncan in a recent interview. "In working at Sterling, we have been able to keep many of the older executives — who found a challenge in new ideas." Actually, the new ideas were tried-and-true business practices he continued. Controls were put on the budgets of each department; new management teams were named in each division, including the American La France operation which makes fire trucks and fire extinguishers, Yawman & Erbe, maker of office furniture and Cesco, office systems and supplies. Operations which - could not show "in the. black" were cut away, cash was raised by the sale of unrelated investments. CLAIMS DROP INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Unemployment insurance claims in Indiana last week were at the lowest level for a December week since 1955. Director Lewis F. Nicolini of the Indiana Employment Security Division said Tuesday claims for the week totaled 28,601, a drop of 31 per cent from the corresponding' week last year. Nicolini said that non-farm employment in the state in mid- November was 1,564,000, an increase of about 7,700 workers over October. He said the total number of persons unemployed was up .slightly from October but that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropped from 3.9 per cent in October to 3.6 per cent in November. The rate for November, 1963, was 4 per cent. sales tax, but the Indiana A!FL- CIO and vociferous Indianapolis Sen. Nelson Grills will' put his feet to the fire on thlt levy. Then there- will be reapportionment of both the congressional and legislative seats in which the coup de grace may be given to the Republicans to squelch any comeback efforts in the congressional and General Assembly lineups. The death knell for the "right to work" law was sounded when the Democrats seized the Legislature. It will be about the firest repealer to be proposed. It will be a tough year for the Republicans and all conservatives in Indiana.

Several years ago he was host to the South American ambassadors at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway 500-mile race. If Capehart should be named, the appointment would be part of the administration's constant effort to maintain a bi-partisan foreign policy, according to the politicos. Meanwhile, Capehart isn't holding his breath. He is one of the most active participants in private business affairs for his age. He also won't off'on relief. ON THE FARM FRONT (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By GAY LORD P. GODWIN •'" United Press International - WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Agriculture Department's first report on probable winter wheat production in 1965 indicates there will be little if any reduction in the wheat surplus next year. The surplus easily could go up. The department took a look at the 1985 winter wheat situation Monday and estimated a crop next summer of 1,042,056,- C00 bushels. Assuming a spring wheat crop of some 200 million bushels—the first indication of spring wheat output next year will come next March in the annual plantings intentions report —there will be an all wheat crop of about 1.24 billion bush-, els. i Such a cron would fill short about 50 million bushels of meeting domestic requirements of 615 million bushels and ax- port demands of about 675 million bushels. This ' would -mean a carryover on July 1, 196S, of about 850 million bushels, compared with the estimated carryover of 900 million.bushels for July 1, 1965. But- farmers 'could increase their spring wheat acreage and come up with a crop well in excess of 200 million bushels. Or, winter wheat farmers, who have until next spring to decide, could plow under the wheat that doesn't look, very good and participate in the 1965 wheat and feed grain programs. This . could cause some of the surplus to melt away eventually. The department said the 1965 winter wheat seedings totaled 45.1 million acres. This was the largest fall seedings since 1953 and 4 per cent more than the 43.2 million acres seeded in 1963. The department said probably 12.7 per cent of the seeded acreage would not be harvested for grain. The agency added firmly that the acreage actually to be harvested for grain will depend on the decision of growers about the acres finally to be diverted under] the 1965 voluntary wheat program as "well as the factors of weather, insects, and disease. The department estimated winter wheat yield of the 1965 crop would be 23.1 bushels an acre. In 1964 it was 23.7 bushels, and the 1953-63 acreage is 22.9 bushels. The Agriculture Department has set the 1965 price support rates for oilseeds at $2.25 per bushel for soybeans, $2.90 per bushel for flaxseed, and $43 per ton for cottonseed. The soybean and flaxseed rates are unchanged from 1964 crop, while the cottonseed support is $1 below the $44 per ton rate in 1964. Buy U. S.
