WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 13<i!) BLYTHEVILLE (ARK;) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Jimmy Roosevelt's Bid for Governor of California Heightens Political Interest B.r Harold Ollvtr t WASHINGTON, Nov. 16. W> — /amcs 'Roosevelt's bid (or the California governorship gave the West Coast slate top ranking svith New York and Pennsylvania today in major party speculation over the 1950 and 195'2 elections. These are the three most populous states, on the basis of census bureau estimates. They cast a tola! of 1D7 ot the nation's 531 electoral votes in a presidential election. Each of them will elect a governor and U.S. Senator next year. The governors' chairs me now held by Republicans (Dewey. N.Y.; Warren, Calif., and Duff. Pa.) Tiie Senate seats are now Democratic (Lehman. N.Y.; Downey. Calif., and Myeis, Pa.) The results conceivably could furnish — or eliminate — a polentia ^.candidate or two in the formulation fft presidential tickets for 1052. Add lo thai the fact that the three slates will elect 101 representative, —now divided 50-50 between the two parties (plus one American f.aborile from New York)— and th outcome will go far in delermlnln: IM makeup of the next Congress. Ohio, farther down in populatioi estimates, also rates hlRh in til Having, There, a leading Rcpuuli can Senator, Robert A. Tuft, an a Democratic governor, Frank J. - Lausche, will be up for re-election. Was Expected The announcement by the 41- year-old Roosevelt (he'll be 42 next month) la=t night in Los Angeles that he will rim for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination had long been expected by politicians here. He said he would also reluctantly run lor Ihe Republican nomination, under the California law which permits nuch dual candidacies. The first reaction amonK Democratic officials was that President Truman and the Democratic national committee will keep hands off Ihe primary race if the late president's eldest son has opposition. The Democrats say this Is not because James opposed Mr. Truman's nomination lasl year, but it is dictated by the general policy of non-inlerference in primaries and practical politics. E. George Luck'ey, wealthy Imperial Comity rancher who man aged Mr. Truman's campaign last year, may run against young Roose• veil. Luckcy, slnte Democratic vice v chairman, called several months aga on the President. Since then there has been talk that he would have at least tacit support from the White House. National committee officials deny this. Democrats figure all stale races in California next year will be Important because the legislature elecled in 1950 will redistrict the .slate on the basis of the 1U50 census. Under that count, Californii Is expected to gain from seven to nine more congressmen and may even crowd out Pennsylvania for second place in the population list.
