Lemons Furniture Mountain, Western States Believed Political 'Toss-Up' .Editor's Note: This is the Fee-, ond o£ a series of stories on the political situation as of now, ns seen by newspaper editors and political writers In nil 48 states. By DOUdl.AS Ji. COJI.VKU, NEW YOHK i,fl—The Mountain and Western states, almost as solidly Democratic as the South in presidential elections over the last 20 years, now nre regarded by editors and correspondents as leaning Republican but still a 1053 (oss-up. An Assocliiled Press survey, based upon Individual county estimates by editors and political writers in each state, indicates their combined opinion Is tbal only one of the 11 states could be considered reasonably sale for the IJemocrats If the election were held at this time. The Democrats j captured 10 of the 11 in 1918. If present trends hold good I ! \ sfatc.s .stilJ must bo kept on the doubtful list-the newspaper men. say the 79 electoral votes of the Mountain and Western states -should line up Ihi.s way behind the presidential nominees: For Republican Dwiphl D. Eisenhower: California 32, Oregon 6. Washington 3. Idaho -1. Utah 4. ew Mexico 4, Montana 4, Nevada Wyoming 3. Total 69. For Democrat Adlai F. Stevenin: Arizona 4. Undecided: Colorado 6, AP surveys of New York. Penn/Ivania, New Jersey. Mar viand nd Delaware, released yesterday, idicate that editors and political riters hold a composite belief \&l if (ho people were voting to- iy the 105 electoral ballots of 1 hose five stales wovikl po to Eispn- i ower by a nai row margin. j The Eastern votes, plus 69 from the West, would give the OOP nominee 174 of the 266 needed to clinch a victory. Dul in the West, us in the East. even a slight shifting of (he political winds could blow almost any state in an entirely different direction by the lime Nov. 4 rolls around. The views of editors and correspondents In the Mountain and Western region add up to an opinion that most of the states arc so close at this point as to be very much in doubt. Editors report a widespread feeling among the people that IfB llrr.o for a chanRe. They speak also of "too much Trumanism;" dissatisfaction with Inflation, high laxcs, foreign policy, war in Korea; "corruption and Communism in government." To a much greater degree than In the Middle Atlantic states Is there mention of Elsen- hower's personal popularity as a campaign factor. The composite view of 32 editors and writers who look soundings in Oregon was that Elsenhower would carry the state without much trouble, whereas Oov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York won It from President Truman in 10-18 by less than 18.000 votes out of a total of mote than 500.000 cast. Rut Stevenson Ca-ne West But thru was before Stevenson brought his campaign into the state. Editors and a Portland polling organiy.nrion agreed that Stevenson did make gains us a result of invading Oregon last week. But these might he offset if Eisenhower shows up in Oregon on a personal appearance tour. In Oregon, and in all other states, current political sentiment was tapped county by county with nsurance man. John H. Greene, to head the state Labor Department's Employment Security Division. Greene succeeds former Gov. Homer Adklns. who resigned during the summer political campaigns, to help in Mi-Math's unsuccessful attempt to gain a third term nomination. Adkins did not seek re-appointment when McMath lost to Judge Francis Cherry of Jonesboro. (he cooperation of Associated Press member newspapers and radio stations and the help of other newspapers, and local correspondents. The survey offers these views of political conditions In the Mountain and Western states as of now: CALIFORNIA Elsenhower would win by a slim margin. In the opinion of California editors, if the polls were open today. But the margin is so slender that the stale Is considered doubtful. President Truman captured 11 four years ago, but by about 18.000 votes out of a tojal of 3,800,000. OREGON The only Western stale to go Republican in 1948 Is considered by Oregon editors as likely to be a repeater In 1952. WASHINGTON New and Independent voters may determine the winner in a race in which the consensus of Washington newspapers indicates Elsen- hower now Is leading by a whisker. Of more than 30 dally and weekly newspapers that co-operalcd in the survey. 18 are supporting Eisenhower and none has come out for Stevenson. IDAHO -Combined estimates of Idaho newspaper editors and publishers indicate they believe Eisenhower will take the stale by a wider m:irt?in than Truman got in winning in 1043. UTAH Newspapermen taking part in Ihe surveys have a combined opinion that Eisenhower will win Utah by a thin margin. NEVADA Republican gains in 12 of the n counties, Nevada editors Kay, are expected to add up to a Republican victory in the state as a whole. Everywhere that survey indicates greater Republican strength. The editors say It can" be attributed to a feeling of people along Ihe curbstones that "It's time for n change." ARIZONA While editors from every county said things can change before election day, their composite opinion is that Arizona would back Stevenson by a comfortable margin j if the election were run off today 1 NEW MEXICO New Mexico editors think the See SURVEY on Pajte 7 Gov.
