JfflURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1936 HEST1ITH KDTE IN Fl SHIES To Win He Must Cany New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois Ohio and Mich. By KOBNEY DUTCHER CHICAGO.—Iii the face of a growing belief among politicians and students of iwlitics that Roosevelt has fin edge in the presidential contest. Oov. Alf Landon and tlie Republicans have set out to prove that an election cnn be won In the last inonlli of a campaign. Landon himself, according to those who have been with him dally since his nomination, is more confident of victory than nt am previous time. At one portal lhc\ say, IIP felt there wasn't much hope. Although most of the political •WTltdrs who nre duMtiig around the country win, u lc candidates or on tours of their own. are betting on Roosevelt at the moment, Republican leaders, though varyin° widely in the degree of their expectations, continue hopeful. tapping off the extremes of optimism and despondency, the most common remark the boys make when they take their hair down is"We've got a good chance!" Enough of the political map has Jelled to enable the Republican nigh command to boil the situation down to one nutshell formula Here it is: Landon must carry New York Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, and New Jersey if he is to be elected, if he loses a single state among the first five—the "Big Five" —he is sunk. He might win them all and still lose the election, but no such thing hns ever happened. If you care to lake out your pencil and play the gaine which everyone, down to the youngest office boy, at major party headquarters is now playing, you can have herewith the latest confidential figurines among the Republican big shots, whose Chicago olficcs are spread through three large downtown buildings. New England Held Sure New England .they are sure, will throw the 41 electoral votes of her six states to Landon, Add that to a possible 47 from New York, 30 from Pennsylvania 29 from Illinois, 20 from Ohio 19 from Michigan, 16 from' New Jersey, and 14 from Indiana.
