PACB TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWg Five Mid-Atlantic States Expected to Go for GOP Editor's Note: This is the first of a series of stories on the political situation, as of now, ns seen- by newspapers editors nnd political writers iti nil 48 states. By DOUGLAS H. COKNKL1. NEW YORK W—Five politically potent Middle Atlantic statcs-NRW Vork. Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Mnryland and Delaware-art! expected by editors nnd political writers nt this stage of the eumpaiRn to go narrowly Republican in No* vein be r as they did in 1948, As Associated Prrss survey, based on county-by-county and sec- tion-by-scctian estimates of editors and correspondents, indicates then? is n composite belief that if the election were run off now, Republican presidential nominee Dwight D, Eisenhower would roll up bigficr margins of victory in most of these states than Guv. Thomas E. Dewey of New York did four yours ago. Even so, the margins still are so slender that two of the states- Maryland and Delaware-must be considered doubtful, although -they are regarded as tilting toward the GOP at this point. Campaign developments between now and election day could up.set present calculations as lo winning margins and easily toss any of these states lo the Drum ?ra tie nominee, Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois. KalEofs Are Prize Packajcw The 105 electoral bnllols of the five states arc a prize political package. They represent nearly one fifth of the .iotal of 531 and almost two fifths o£ the 2G5 electoral votes needed to win the election. The political soundings In this survey, arc those to follow for other slates, are being taken through the eo-oneration of Associated Press member newspapers and radio stations, other newspapers and local correspondents. On the basis of talks with voters, research, (heir own knowledge of their counties, actual polls wherever possible, they were requested to estimate the percentage of the vote Individual counties will cast for Eisenhower and Stevenson. Theso ostiniates wero weighted to take into account the, difference ki voting strength among counties, then combined into state estimates. Tho surveys were undertaken In late August or early September. Another etafe-by-state survey is planned for October. With few exceptions, trend estimates for the Middle Atlantic fitntes indicated thnt the political appraisers thought Elsenhower would run ahead If people had been voting two months before the actual election date. Ike's Popular it)' Counts Elsenhower's personal popularity was described generally as a more forceful factor In iL« 'jamjmigu than time-for-a-change sent', men! and such specific issues as high taxes and corruption in government. Here and there, editors noted that Republicans who had preferred Sen. Robert A. Tnft of Ohio ns the presidential nominee seemed to be holding back from Eisenhower, perhaps with intentions of not voting at all. Others reported that some independent voters appenrotJ to bo turning toward the general. Stevenson's greatest strength, ns te usual for Democratic candidates, was assigned to industrial and urban areas. State by slate, this is the i>lcture: New York 45 electoral votes. Estimates put together from 05 participating newspapers indicate belief that Elsenhower should take Stevenson's measure by some 3GO,- 000 votes, whereas Dewey edged out Truman by 61,000 in 1018. That's on the assumption that the total vote this year v,il! bo about tho same as the 6,131,000 ballots cast in I948 for the Republican, Democratic and Progressive party candidates. Actually, the vote may be considerably larger than four years a^o. Ike Better Than Deucy Tho editors and writers believe Kisenhower will make a stronger showing than Dowey did both in the five counties making up New York City and tho 51 upstate counties nul.sfdc the city. They see Stevenson as running ahead of Truman in •!•..•» city but behind up- slate. New Jersey 16 electoral votes. The combined opinions of 27 newspapers throughout the state iirid up at this stage of the poli- tfckiii:,' to a comfortable lend for Eisenhower, with the GOP nominee pocketing 17 of the 21 counties, scoring heavily in rural and u\sidential areas and making some mrottdn against Democratic sirpiufth in industrial districts. Margin Could lie Xarrowil Yet Now Jersey editors believe the* mitrtfln could be narrowed, even reversed, depending on the iwlsls and (urns the campaign may take. Dewey polled some 8r>,000 votes more than President Trumr.n in 1348 nnd got 15 of the '2.1 counties. Pennsylvania 32 electoral votes. Editors ill the Key stone State consider Penn.sylvanlii fairly^ safe for Eisenhower. Their composite opinion is that he may rim a shade belter than Dewey, who won by 150,000 in 19-18. 1'htUid.elnhia and Pittsburgh, the state's two Ki'cat metropolitan centers, are regarded as likely to go Democratic-Philadelphia by around 70,000 voles, Pittsburgh by some GO,000. Nine ohcr counties are put in the Democratic column, but the editors regard 56 more as Republican tcrritoiy for 1052. The state has 67 counties. Maryland nine electoral voles, It's normally Democratic Baltimore against 23 generally Republican counties. And Maryland editors consider the state, n toss-up but leaning slightly toward Eisenhower. Some of them say the general may do » fraction belter than the New York governor, who won by only H,300 votes four years ago. Delaware three electoral votes. Republican hut so close as to be doubtful is the combination estimate of editors of three papers covering the three counties in Delaware. Their calculations would give Elsenhower i\ November victory by some 3,000 votes against a Dewey margin of 1,775 four years ago. The state cast 139,000 votes En the last presidential election.

STEVENSON (Continued from Page 1) We the ball here, this state is going Republican this year." Although the schedule calls for major speech in Springfield, Mass., Friday, Stevenson is rcserv- ing his big effort there for later in the campaign. However, he will travel there by automobile, "klaxon stopping" in a number, of Massachusetts cities en route. Part of his purpose of this swing, as It was during the Western trip, will be simply to let people see him, ' make himself known, anil soften up the lerritory for his big- east Arkansas Fair this week of certain standards that must be met under law. Mr. Dickey said (hat his office would "spot check" concession stands at the fair to see that the following standards are met; (1) An adequate supply of hot water must be on hand at all times. (2) If stands are to serve lunches and barbecue, the food products must be prepared in separate cook rooms that are properly enclosed and screened. (3) Cooking griddles must be enclosed on three sides with covers extending entirely over the griddle. (4) Food must be properly protected from dust and dirt at all times.

Getting back to the Blytheville school, Dr. McClurkln said the rte- 'f sli;n, which affords flexibility, ^ utility and is still aesthetic, meets modern standards. Its construction should lend itself to low-cost maintenance, he stated. Dr. McClurkin remarked on the school's disadvantages, loo. However, he commented. "It Is obvious that what we want and what we can afford often are pretty far apart." Here's what Blytheville needs as soon as possible, he said: 1. A new gymnasium. The present one would scarcely accommodate a full junior high physical education program. Haley Field gym must now take care of junior and senior physical education classes, 2. A cafeteria In the new build- Ing. "However," he added, "the new building Is so arranged that both gymnasium and cafeteria may be added without disturbing the general pattern of the building's development." Lastly, Dr. McClurkin said, he would like to see the new school bear a name. What name? "I think it should be known as Hosa Hardy High School. Certainly no one is more deservine.of the honor. No one has worked harder over the years for our high school students." by Felix Carney Hollywood's coyness toward making films for television, u subject upon vvliich we have dwelt several times, has definitely ended. Columbia Pictures was the first of the majors to decided on making films for TV. Now Decca Records announces that Universal's subsidiary, United World Films, has been making TV pix for the last 12 weeks! How about that? . . . Have y o it ever wondered how far our television manufacturers will go in the size of screens? One chap in the financial world has -this lo say: at some point the sine of the front door will limit the television set designer. . . Every once in a while we dwell upon new fields embracing our beloved subject of television. For example, one j station of which we know is I telecasting instructions on how to swim, with Red Cross teachers showing viewers different strokes, etc. . . In another city, cops stopped a motorist — all of which was televised — gave him a ticket, but only in this instance the "ticket" was to thn ball game because he had been driving carefully. To speculate a bit farther, if global warfare breaks out again it is entirely possible that world-wide television relays will bring to viewers the actual battles! Ah, this television !

They were expensive in l'J-10. They cost a lot more today. The mile of cast iron pipe you could have installed for §11,000 in 1910 costs $17,000 today. The pumping station that cost S/00,000 ten years ago will involve a 225,000 expenditure now. It cosl 51,850,000 to install a 50 million gallon per dav filler plant in 1910. The same system installed today will cosl 51,250.000. Maintenance costs have risen proportionately. Take coal for the pumping station. The fuel hill that ran $175 a day in 1910 will reach SI00 a day now. Trucks thai cost §Sf)0 (en years ago are now priced at SI,70ft. Water softening chemicals that cost §11 a ton are S2.'i. A good pickaxe costs $3.75 as against S2.00 in 1940. To provide a 25 per cent increase in available waler for a community of 50,000 will cost approximately S200.000; lo provide a 50 per cent increase the hill will be 5100,000; to provide 100 per cent increase, it will run lo $700,000.
