Key Campaign Trends Demos, GOP Might Swap Out in Colorado EDITOR'S NOTE — This is » another of several stories by roving Associated Press reporters analyzing the campaign in key states. By JACK BELL DENVER (AP) — Repubiv cans and Democrats might swap a GOP governorship for a Democratic Senate seat in a free-for-all Colorado election battle that also may alter the present even split of four House of Representatives seats. As in other states, leaders of tht two parties disagree on the trend. President Eisenhower seems to have given GOP candidates a lift by his presence, although declining to campaign locally for them. The Democrats have whipped together a ticket topped by Sen. Edwin C. Johnson, 70-year-old veteran of two terms in the statehouse anc 18 years in the Senate. They contend it is the best they have offered in Colorado in years. Nearly all observers here give Johnson a deflnte edge over youthful Republican State Sen. Donald G. Brotzman in the race to fill the governor's chair being vacated by Republican Dan Thornton. On the other hand, there is a solid segment of opinion—shared , tot attractive Mrs. Ellen Harris, a Republican, to defeat Democratic Rep. Byron G. Rogers in the 1st District but few political dopesters here agree with him. Democrats contend—and many Republicans do not deny it privately—that Republican Rep. William S. Hill Is having the political fight of his life In Colorado's 2nd District. Hill Is opposed by Democrat Lacy Wilkinson, 12 years mayor of Greeley in what normally is a rockribbed GOP area. A 1 t h o u g h Democratic Rep. Wayne N. Aspinall won by only 29 votes In Colorado's 4th District in 1852, few politicians here give his opponent, Charles E. Wilson, much of a chance In November. In most of these House races, as In the statewide campaigns, personalities and local issues are playing major roles. GRIM REMINDERS—These markers near Plains, Knn., are reminders of the worst highway accident ever recorded in Kansas. Eight persons died when a passenger car and a truck collided^ The markers were set up as a warning to motorists that it can—and did—happen here.

Hormel is free on $1,500 GEORGETOWN, Del. The ques- ion of admitting Negro pupils to previously all-white Milford High School moves into court today with large crowd of anti-integration- ists expected to be on hand. The state chancellor is scheduled to hear an appeal by the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People to reinstate 11 Negro students who were forced from the school by actions of the National Assn. for the Advancement of White People and other anti-integ- ratiornsts. ' At a NAAWP meeting last night in Lincoln, nearly everyone raised his hand when asked by State President Joseph M, Danes if they would be on hand for today's argument. The crowd was estimated at 6,000. Meanwhile. Bryant Bowles, national president of the NAAWP, arranged to meet today with State Atty. Gen. H. Albert Young, who subpoenaed NAAWP records Friday. Young said yesterday that Bowles had asked in a telephone conversation for a delay and had agreed to meet with him here today. Bowles said earlier he would turn over the records^ to a court but not to Young because the attorney general "is not a court." Later he said his attorney was studying the matter. The 11 Negro pupils had been integrated, apparently successfully, into the Milford High School at the beginning of the fall term. The integration followed a U. S. Supreme Court ruling against segre- in some high Democratic places- thai Republican Lt. Gov. Gordon Allott may be able to take the measure of former Rep. John Carroll in the contest to fill the Senate place Johnson is vacating. Demos Crowing In the battle for two House jobs held down by Republicans, the Democrats are crowing about their chances of winning one find holding the two they now possess. Republicans say privately they would be glad to settle for the present equal division. Despite some Democratic coolness toward his candidacy, Carroll said in an interview he believes he and the rest of his party's ticket are "on top today." Carroll is a former adviser to ex-President Truman and likes to be classed as "an old Roosevelt man." He is solidly backed by gated public schools. Bowles and other members of the NAAW Peventually spoke out •gainst the integrated school. Boycotting followed and the attendance the high school dropped to a third of normal. The Milford School Board resigned and a new board ordered the Negro students returned to an all-Negro school in Dover, 18 miles from Milford, a community of 5,700 in southeastern Delaware. Bowles is free under $6,000 bond on charges he conspired to break the state compulsary education law by leading the boycott, . Also facing Bowles and the NAAWP,fs an injuction sought by Young to prevent the organization from collecting dues or soliciting new members, gued Oct. 22. That will be ar- organized labor but may be lacking some conservative Democratic support. Allott who is backing Eisenhower's flexible farm pric« supports with the reservation that he will lake any feasible steps to prevent any dip in farmers' income, said he expects his plugs for the Eisenhower program to pay off at the polls. Carroll has vigorously nssniled the flexible tui'rn price sivplioH program and Democratic former SecTfUiry of Agriculture Charles P. Brannan is campaigning the slate against U.

"They wore stemmed up over him two years ago and a great many of them arc saying he needs to have some help in Washington, in the form of the Republican Congress, if lie is going to get anything done." Carroll, a Denver resident, must buck the fact Unit the capital city already claims one senator In Republican Eugene Minikin. This may be of .some benefit to Al- mnr in southeastern Colorado. Brotzman, who lists himself as "an Eisenhower man," stilcl he is "a firm believer with the President, Uint certain functions now exercised by the federal government should be returned to the slates."
