Fate 2 GHEELKY TJKIBVIfs'E Monday, Dec. 12, 1955 Farm Prices Next Fall May Set Political Control of Colorado. By GORDON G. GAUSS 'Aiitclated'Pren Staff Writer · Prices which''eastern 1 * Colorado farmers and ranchers.receive (or their products n e x t . f a l l may decide whether Democrats or Xcjnili- Ucans will control the.state .after '- the 1956 election, : If prices stay low -- nr drop farther--Democrats will try to capitalize on the situation. They will blame national GOP administration policies. · Thereby they hope to wipe oul-- or at. lea;.t, cut d o w n -- t h e nt.ijof- ilics.which the short grass and ir- 1 vjpaletl land counties of - eastern and northeastern Colorado tradi.- tioncHly give to Ihe "GOP. Republicans count on those voles -to offset Democratic votes in Denver, Pueblo and other centers. A sharp deflection from the. Republicans in these areas might be enough to tip the state lo the Democrats. It actually happened hi 194S-and the GOP hasn't forgotten it. Parly leaders arc more worried about the situation than they have been for years. · Adding lo these Republican worries are Ihe. drought and dust which SAVE YOUR RECEIPTS $10 Total Entitle!

The.most encouraging sign which Republicans sec in the farm situation right now . I s the .deepening inowpack high,in Colorado's mountains, which' promises niore Irrigation water nc*xt year. Some .of th,e Domocrals, sur- pri.cingly, arc a little wary about t i n g their campaign too closely lo the f a r m . s i t u a t i o n . They say Itiat a l a s t - m i n u t e price u p t u r n could upset the work ot months if this is d n n e ' a n d Ihat-lhe party made,the same mistake in 1054, Republicans hope lhat, if /arm votes go Democratic, they can pick up city votes wilh the- theme of prosperity. They, cite booming business iri Denver and other centers and hope Ihis will wean away some metropolitan voles which formally go to the Democrats. The Republicans arc certain to pilch much of their appeal to voters on maintenance of peace, part of the issue of international relations vhich will b'e stressed in the national campaign. As an 1 offshoot of (he n a t i o n a l controversy over private and public power policy, Democrats are certaiii to bring up Ihe c.ase of Ihe Colorado-Ute power' plant. Frank Bleaker, association president and t -Republican, charged before a congressional subcommittee that the four western Colorado rural clc'clric associations in Colorado Ule were forced inlo a ''sholgun wedding" \rilh Western Colorado Power Co. on the proposed planl. There will he reverberations before November. ' . . JiccJi'ininiion 5s certain to enter Into the issues which will be 1 debated in Colorado and the apparently-dead plan for (i dam at Echo I'ark in .Dinosaur National Mon ument is due for another airing. H is'possible lhal these-themes will drive Colorado's east-west water controversy out of llic pclifical picture. Leaders of both parties hope so. They /eel the controversy has cooled appreciably since the recent agreement between Denver and Western Slope leaders over the Blue River,. A lot of the Issues to be dc- balctl in the slate depend upon what Colorado's Legislature docs next month. It .could inject sonic phase of the always-sizzling old age pension question.^into tbc campaign--but K probably 'won't. It may place an oil severance lax constitutional .amendment on the ballol, loo, which will* create a, sideshow of ils own* The Legislature also might pul on Ihe ballot a constitutional amendment to abolish tfic lax on household goods. The amount of state aid,for schools Ecorns certain lo be an issue. One Ihing puzzling pililit\l chieftains right now is Ihe size of the vote w h i c h - w i l l t u r n , o u t . In 1052 Colorado hit an all-lime record of 630,000 votes; last year the so-calleii off-year ctccti.on brought out about · 4M.OOQ. The stale lias grown since 19,"]2, but il is questionable lhal any c a n d i d a t e other t h a n President Eisenhower can gel oul all the voters who' -balloted in thai election. The campaign--for Ihe polili- cinns--is starling early. This is due p'artly to the fact that both parties h a v e new chairmen ami want to gel work done at tbe local level on organization. So far the man in the street hasn't become excited. He's watching closely whether or not the 1'rcsidcnl will ;eek another, term And the maneuvering s for the Democratic nomination but he's not aroused ·el. Probably few Coloradoans will announce -their candidacies before printfi and some may wait until limost time for the party assembles. Republicans are planning to lold a convention to select na ional committee members and convention delegates and Ihen separate stale assembly lo designate candidates. The Democrats, ried o.ut a system in 1952 of having tHe Iwo meetings in the same place on successive days.
