TTTELTK —_____ 'Never Safe Ohio with 25 Electoral Votes Can Swing Election Either Way (Am*) coimnm raw* (Kdlior'i Note: Tkls 1« the ttvonA Ohio will go Republican all the of a series ol stories on the political Eltuilion in th< "Big Sis" —Elates which have 3 lolal of J85 electoral rotes, only 81 short enough ta elect a president) By B. T. JOHN'S COLUMBUS. O. (j»—Twonly-flvo electoral votes from a sinte that swaps parties frequently will be at stake in Ohio Nov. 4. InUnse campaigning with hot slate, as well us nnilonnl, contests has generated Interest to such an extent that It is estimated a million more people will vote than In 1948. It Is no wonder that lop figures in both parties ore making Ohio a major battleground. Starling with 1900 Ohio has voted Republican In seven presidential elections. Six limes it has bncked the Democratic candidate* It now hns a Democratic governor aoil two Republican U. s. senators. It can never be considered for either party. Ohio went along with Franklin D. Roosevelt In his first bid for the . presidency in 1932, nnd continued Democratic in 1936 nnd 1940. Thomas E. Dewey got the nod over Roosevelt by 11,630 voles in 1044. IJarry S. Truman finished with a plurality of 7,107 In 1948. •The Nov. 4 decision in Ohio between Democrat Adlnl E. Stevenson nnd - Republican Divight D. Eisenhower will be Vila! to the national outcome. Only four other states, New York, California, Pennsylvania and Illinois, have more electoral votes. j Ohio's 25 represent a cross ncc- tiqn ol labor, farming nnd big business. The, state ranks hljh in national.lists both Industrially and as a farming area. Eight of Ohio's 88 counties, with Cleveland and Cuyahoaa County at the top of the list, : usually tip the scales in 'Buckeye' elections. The other counties, and their principal cities, are Franklin (Columbus), Hamilton (Cincinnati), L uc a s,; (Toledo), M nh o n 1 n g (Youngstown), Montgomery (Dayton), stark'(Canton), and Summit (Akron). / In '1948 the eight counties cast 53.73 per cent of Ohio's presidential ballots out of a total , of 2.898,475. ' Secretary of state Ted W. Brown estimates 3.900,000 will vote this year. -This was a prize sought by both candidates for the presidency as they campaign ta Ohio this year on a scale unequaled in recent national elections. Stevenson criss-crossed the state twice and made a third trip tor the weekend before election. Eisenhower spent two days In Ohio. Both vice presidential candidates, Richard Nixon for the Republicans and John J. Spnrkman far (he Democrats,' also toured the slate. So did Sen;'Robert A. Taft, Ohio'B own, and President Truman. ' What is the presidential outlook In Ohio this 'year? , The state lenders of both paities are optimistic. Ray C. Bhss, Republican state chairman, says: "At the present time I am ol the : opinion that way Eugene Hanhart, Democratic _.a(c chairman, says: "I feel confident that with the expected heavy vote the Democratic party will be victorious In Ohio. Our approach of talking sensibly nbout the issues nnd the record has drawn the vas( majority of independents to our party." A survey of political writers by The Associated Press as of mld- Ocloljer resulted in the composite view of 13 newspapers in 83 of the 88 counties lhat Elsenhower would win the Ohio vote. The writers estimated Klscnhow- T ivould thlce 5-1 per cent, Stevenson 46. The outcome In Cleveland and Cuyahoga County us usual largely will determine the presidential result in Ohio. Cuynhogn, polls about one-sixth of the total vote. .It went for Truman in 1918, hut both the Cleveland Plain Dealer and the county would back 'Cleveland News estimated thlsRohert. month the Eisenhower. It U a political tradition of Wing standing th»t a Democrat must carry Cuyahog* County by a margin In the neighborhood ol 60,000 to win the stat«. Cleveland's Democratic mayor, Thomas A'. Burke, recently raised the figure to 100,000 for the 1»S2 presidential contest but said Stevenson would make it. Spirited battles for U. S. senator and governor have added spice to the campaign. Debate of International and national issues has featured a stiff, sometimes bitter, contest between John W. Brlcker, Republican, seeking re-election to the Senate, and Michael V.
