GREENSBURG CALL 663-3114 IF PAPEB IS MISSED-^ Frank A. White ALL WHO KNOW politico wUl accede that the 87th annual fall conference of the Indiana Republican Editorial Association, meeting at French Lick this past weekend, saw new fight in the Hoosier GOP and higher morale. Biggest boost to Republicans came when a three federal judge panel ruled the reapportionment law of the 1965 legislature was un- Mr. White constitutional. Gov. Roger D. Branigin is forced into a special session of the Assembly or to have the federal court reapportion Indiana legislative seats after Dec. 1. The reapportionment was a gerrymander by the heavily controlled Democratic House and Senate to assure the party of most seats in any future Assembly. THE REPUBLICANS see Democratic woes mounting. There is an expanding Vietnamese war, with rising costs of life and treasure, and dim outlook of any decisive victory. Cost of living, shown by rise in food prices, continues to mount. The Johnson administration's Great Society is in trouble on many fronts, including the Atterbury Job Corps that is long on scandal and short on accomplishments. Republicans view the all-time record of bill passing of the 89th Congress as a disaster to all who believe in limited government and preservation of personal liberties.

Hamilton of Columbus Democratic congressman from the Ninth District, reviewed what he termed "the Democrats record of achievement" and pre dieted another Democratic victory in 1966 because of "the manner in which Democrats are now discharging their responsibilities." "The Democratic Party has majority vote and is getting the fob done," Hamilton stated. Speaking of the reapportionment, which places Decatur County in the Ninth District instead of the 10th Congressional District, Rep. Hamilton said he welcomed the inclusion of Decatur County in his district, not because of its past voting record, but because of the potential support in the future. "I know enough good hard-working Democrats in this county to assure a Democratic victory in 1966," declared. Hamilton said the three basic reasons for the Democrats mov- ng forward are: Good organiza- ;ion, good candidates and Democratic leaders who have projected a positive image. In conclusion, Rep. Hamilton said: "The Democratic Party is serving well and will continue to grow in prestige because of the work of people dedicated to public service." The speaker was introduced by Ralph Williams.
