It Takes Only 3 Minutes To Open A Charge Account Adlai Holds Odds Over Kefauver In. Minnesota Primary By WAltACE C. MITCHELL NEA Special Correspondent MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — (NEA) — Adlai E. Stevenson and Sen. Estes Kefauver, top foes for the 1956 Democratic presidential nomination, are headed for a test of .farm-belt popularity and party selection methods. • Stevenson is favored to win Minnesota's presidential primary election March 20, No. 2 in the nation. He is campaigning with the all-out endorsement of the central committee of the Democratlc-Parrner- Labor party, as Democrats are known here. 0p for grabs are two delegates in each of nine congressional districts, nine delegates running on a statewide at-large basis, and three to be picked at a post-primary convention. , Back of Stevenson's endorsement, voted last October, are Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey and Gov. Orvtlle L. Freeman. They control the militant political organization that ousted Republicans from Minnesota political control in 1954. . Kefauver was persuaded to challenge Stevenson by reports of formidable resentment to the party endorsement procedure. He concedes he has "an uphill fight." In his first whirl for Minnesota votes he stressed "confidence" in rank- and-file party members wanting to choose their own presidential favorite instead of being told "from the top down." While the Democratic fight rages," Republicans merely watch. Diehard conservatives entered the name of Sen. William P. Knowland (R-Calif.) by petition against-the delegate slate pledged to President Eisenhower. The President's availability for the nomination led Knowland to disclaim intentions to buck his slate in Minnesota. Although but 30 Democratic .national convention votes are at stake, the Stevehson-Kefauver clash is earnest. "In a large measure," said, Stevenson in a St. Paul talk, "my fortunes are in the hands of you peo- Ipe here in Minnesota." • ' * • Less than a full sweep by Stevenson will be claimed as a moral victory for the Tennessee senator in view of the party's endorsement of Stevenson. Kefauver's best hope" is in the two agricultural congressional districts in western and northwestern Minnesota. Traditionally independent political districts, .they might be wooed by the Kefauver anti-dictation strategy, Kefauver lias the help of one district's member of congress, Rep. Coya Knutson. She is openly accusing her party leadership of dictation. A pert blonde housewife and former music teacher, Mrs. Knutson stumps shoulder-to-shoulder with Kefauver. She talks of him glowingly as a "family man." "It's time the patter of little feet Is heard again in the White House," she tells audiences. It is a reminder to the conservative Lutherans who dominate, rural areas that Stevenson has had domestic troubles. Stevenson's urbane manner sometimes makes him appear uncomfortable on the hustings. Kefauver finds, it easy to move up to strangers, grasp their hands warmly and say in his low voice, "It's so good to meet you, ma'am." • * • Both Stevenson and Kefauver have pledged themselves to support 90 per cent farm price supports, a major issue in this farm state. Kefauver seems, however, to have "sold" his understanding of farm problems better than Stevenson. The odds still favor Stevenson to win by a two-to-one margin in the statewide vote. Kefauver himself believes he will look good if he gets 35 per cent of the vote. If he gets it in the rural areas, he may pick up two, four and maybe six district delegates. That could hurt Stevenson.
