Republicans are pitching their national campaign here on a Give-Ikea - Republican - Congress theme in the hope they can defeat Democratic Sen. Robert S.' Kerr. Although apathy Is apparent among the voters, Republican leaders contend their own workers 'enthusiasm gives them their best chance to' elect the state's first GOP governor. There seems little likelihood that the 5-1 margin of the Democrats in the state's House of Representatives delegation will be altered. Republican Reuben K. Sparks said in an interview he is highly encouraged in his race for the governorship by the fact that Maine elected a Democratic governor. He said he thinks the Maine results demonstrated a trend of independent thinking that may overrun party lines all over the nation. "What the Democrats can do in Maine, the Republicans can do better in Oklahoma," he declared. Because Oklahoma normally is Democratic by a substantial margin, the Republicans will have to depend on Democratic voters to win either the governorship or the Senate post. Kerr Controls Party Fred M. Mock, the GOP candidate for the Senate, professes belief that the appeal for a Republican Congress to support Eisenhower's program will be effective, but few politicians here give Mock more than an outside chance. Kerr, an oil multimillionaire who defeated former Gov. Roy Turner for his party's Senate nomination, appears to have consolidated a hold on the state's Democratic organization. A favorite son movement may develop for him in the STARTS YOUNG-Les lee Rysko. 8. of Chicago, is crowned "Little Miss Illinois" by Reggie Dombjick, recently named "Miss Chicago." Leslee will compete for "Little Miss U. S. A." in New York City in December. Heavy Saying . Mock has endorsed that program and thus has drawn a direct issue with his opponent in a state where the farm vote often is decisive. Mock has recognized the political potentialities of the drought, explaining that the Eisenhower administration isn't responsible for the lack of rain and contending that It is doing all it can to speed relief measures. There are many politicians who believe that a good, soaking rain would do more for Republican prospects in Oklahoma than any amount of campaigning:. These politicians figure that the farmer who looks out on brown fields too dusty and dry to plough for wheat planting is going to take it out on the Washington administration when he goes to the polls. Farmer Support Seen State Democratic Chairman Smith Hester said he found in a personal survey of agricultural areas that "the farmers are talking Democratic." Republican Chairman Douglas McKeever said, however, he doesn't believe the farmers blame the Republicans for the drought. McKeever added he doesn't be- .ieve the flexible price support program is a political liability for the Republicans, as Kerr contends. "The farmers I have talked to see the fallacy of piling up huge crop surpluses under high, rigid supports," he said. "They believe the time has come to take some action on that score and are willing to take their chances with flexible supports." under the Eisenhower program, price supports will go up as crop supplies dwindle and. decline as surpluses mount. Kerr is concentrating most of his campaign fire on Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson, although he says Eisenhower "can't escape responsibility as commander-in-chief of the forces that are bringing defeats to the people." He chided Eisenhower about the time he spends playing golf, but thus far has indulged in no all- out attack on the President. Mock said he is convinced Eisenhower's popularity Is as great now as it WES in 1952. He has emphasized the theme that "it is imperative that the President has a worMng majority in Congress. Republicans have made a point of Kerr's attacks on Gen. Douglas MacArthur, who is presumed to have a following in the state. Bailie W. Vinson, Republican national committeeman, accused Kerr of serving as "hatchet man" for President Truman in the controversial dismissal of MacArthur as Pacific commander. Kerr replies that he took the initiative in urging Truman to fire the general "because MacArthur wouldn't play on the team." In a contest that seems likely to be closer than the Senate race, Republicans appear to be carrying the fight to the Democrats in the battle for the governorship. State GOP leaders are taking a leaf out of Eisenhower's 1952 book and calling for a cleanup of what they characterize as the "mess in the statehouse." The state's loss of population—a blow to Oklahoma s fierce pride—is being used by the Republicans against the Democrats who have been in power since 1907. Sparks is preaching the doctrine that Oklahoma has all of the natural resources any state could ask but lacks an "aggressive government to take advantage of them. The Democratic candidate for governor, State Sen. Raymond Gary,'contends, on the. other hand, that the drought—third worst in Japan Reports Offshore Oil TOKYO W> — The newspaper nnlnichl yesterday reported discovery of what possibly may be vast deposits of coal, iron and oil under Japan's continental shelf. It said (lie resources were discovered as a result of a vast search and sea-mapping undertaking after World War II. The report estimated that offshore oil deposit* are several times greater than those In Japan proper and that coal deposits are 10 times greater.

The Commonwealth's government relocates slum dwellers on nearby subdivisions where water, lights and streets are provided. Each family gets a 300-square-mcter lot. Then they move their modest homes onto the free plot of ground and in their spare time with the help of neighbors and local government, they build an entirely new one. For $15 down, a family can start building its own $300 "casita"-a small, reinforced concrete home. The government contributes up to $150 of .the cost of materials and supplies. Above, George Concepcion, 31 puts a few finishing touches on his new casita in Dorado, while his wife sweeps the porch ' Their new home is a far cry from the shack, left, the family formerly occupied.

"The cattlemen who supported him have gone broke and the bankers are turning back to the Democratic party." ,. Gary and his campaign strategists discounted the effect of the defection of William O. Coe, who lost the Democratic governor nomination to Gary in a bitter runoff primary. Coe announced Thursday night Ms support of Sparks, but said he would back Democratic candidates other than Gary. Gary called Coe "a poor loser." Republicans privately voice doubt that Coe's expected switch will help them, but contend publicly that only a few nudRes would be needed to carry them into the win column in a race they lost by only 16,000 votes four years ago.
