Mamie Harris It worthy matron and Ada L. Cobbs secretary. editors In 11 of the 75 counties shows shifts in senilraent In 42 counties but a net change of only one per cent during the past 45 days In the expected total vote for each party. In a mid-September survey the editors' combined opinion was that the Democrats would poll 65 per cent of the popular vote — the Republicans 35. The latest check, with four counties not recorded, shows a consensus that (he Democrats will receive 64 per cent,, (he Republicans 36. • . ' . The four mlcsliig counties cast approximately three per cent of the total vote In 1948. Intensified efforts of the victory- hungry GOP to put across their candidate through his personal popularity and by attracting Truman-hating Democrats to his bnn- ner were evident throughout the Greatest In History . Editor : «fter edllor reported that Republican activity is the greatest in the history of his county In contrast, a number of the newsmen said the campaign was attracting little attention In their home ball- wicks, i All surface indications point to a Republican victory, according to the editors. Straw polls conducted by a number of dailies and weeklies have without exception shown a thump- mg majority for the retired 5-star general. Conversations along main street and .In barber shops and other centers follow (he same general theme of anti-administration talk. But the editors discount much of this as conversation only. They feel that party loyalty _ Ingrained in Arkansans since the end of the.Civil War and Intensified during the Depression — will prove the deciding factor Irrespective of Issues or personalities. • "They'll get the grumbling off their chest before election d«y and then go into the booth and scratch a straight ticket," reported one editor who did not wish to be quoted by name. Ike Strong on Farms Oddly enough, Eisenhower's Increased strength was reported In the farm counties where newsmen said the Korean War and President Truman's attacks on the 'general are losing ground for the Democrats. - The hubbub over 'Sen. Nixon's fund and the resulting furore over all candidates' income has gone almost unnoticed in these counties the editors said. . Those issues have attracted the most'.attention. in the larger- counties with Arkansas' main cities. It is the Democratic gains reported in these larger counties — smaller percentage wise but larger In total votes involved — that have offset Eisenhower's slowly increasing strength in the country. Here Is how the editors think the state would vote — by county — if the election were held today: Democrats — 59 counties Republicans - — Seven counties Evenly divided — Five counties Not reporting — Four counties. EISENHOWER (Continued from Pag* I) nation's economy Is strenthened. Across Western New Enland yesterday, from Hartford, Conn., to Pittsfield, Mass., Eisenhower struck back at Truman charges that a Republican victory would lead to a depression and unemployment. He said that, at'any sign of a recession, he would call In "the finest minds". In the United States to block a depression before It could happen. He said further that he would hold down expenses and eliminate wast« to help reduce taxes.
