THURSDAY, OCT. 50, 1952 California's 32 Electora Votes Big' Question Mark (Editor's Nolt—This Is the fourth In a scries of stories about the "Blgr Six" slates — Xtw York Pennsylvania, California, Illinois Ohio and Texas—which have more than ime-lhird of all the electoral voles In the country.) By MORRIS I.AN'DSBERG SACEAMENTO, Calif. w> _ The presidential campaign Is blazing right down to the finish with a vigor never be/ore equaled in California. Spurring bolh parties on, (here's an element of doubt on how the state's six million voters will go. Nobody is taking the election for granted—not with 32 big electoral voles at stake. Second only to New York's 45, 'it may well be one of the pivotal blocs of the 266 needed for national victory. The California outcome looks close. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Republican nominee, has been rated a slight edge by a state-wide newspaper poll and independent surveys. " Offsetting this somewhat, Democratic leaders declare—and soriie political writers agree—that there has been a late Irend toward Gov. Adlal Stevenson of Illinois. Whether the shift Is enough to overtake Eisenhower is now a question of intense speculation. Republican strategists, aware of the 856,955 Democratic lead In voter registration, are depending on two of the state's best vote- getters, Sen. .Richard M. Nixon, Eisenhower's : running mate, and popular Republican Gov. Earl Warren, to throw back any Fjurge California has gone to (he Democrats In every presidential election since 1932—but by dwindling irm- Jorltes since 1936. President Roosevelt won by 418,000 votes in 1932 830,000 in 1936, 526.000 In 1040 476,000 in 1944. President Truman captured the state by « scant 11,865 In 1948. Republicans nay they aro not alarmed by the voter registration showing 3,312,668 Democrats to 2,455,713 Republicans, nor by predictions for i turnout Tuesday as high as 90 per cent. They feel the combination of Elsenhower's peispnal appeal and the desire for a change in Washington will crack th- Democratic tanks. Warren, in gaining three terms, as governor, has shown it can lie done. So have others. California editors established Eisenhower as the favorite to cany (he state in a mid October survey of The Associated Press. They agiced generally it's likely to be close. The editors In a September survey concluded the outcome was doubtful. Composite opinion of the second poll split the anticipated major party vote 52-43 per cent for Eisenhower. Eisenhower campaigned through the state once and Stevenson twice Both drew big and enthusiastic crowds. h J es were cheered by a Dcmoeiatic legislra- tion gain of 50,000 since June and the prospect of a heavy vote. What they didn't mention was a 127097 drop in their lead over the Rppub Means since 1948. •Republicans are not overlooking OOP Sen. William P. Knowland's re-election victory m the primaries —possible under the slate's unique crosslillng law. KnowJand, a strong critic of President Truman, amassed over a million Republican votes and 965,000 Democialic to gain both nominations. The Democrats long have had the bulge in regisli alien. But Republicans hold all but one major state office, both seats m the u. s Senale and 13 of the 23 in the „ .. ,.
