How Schaben Won Election Times Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, June 7, 1974 FUNNY BUSINESS 8 By Roger Bollen By Harrison Weber Iowa Daily Press Ass'n. DES MOINES -There's an old political axiom — you go where the votes are. This was never truer than in the Democratic primary where Jim Schaben won his party's nod for the gubernatorial nomination over Bill Gannon and Clark Rasmussen. Although Gannon carried 55 counties, Schaben still wound up with a 7.800 vote plurality. How? The answer is knowing where the votes are and getting the people to the polls. Historically there are about 20 counties that determine the outcome of a contest in a Democratic primary. Schaben, for the most part, was able to either carry these counties or to neutralize the vote so that Gannon did not rack up any big margin. Schaben, for example, lost in Linn, Black Hawk, Polk, Johnson and Scott counties. But his margin of defeat in each of these counties was slim. Conversely, Schaben was able to carry Dubuque, Woodbury, Carroll, Wapello and Pottawattamie counties by rather sizable margins. But Schaben's real margin of victory came in some surprise counties, like Buena Vista, Crawford, Harrison and Shelby where he won rather handily. One obvious reason that he carried these counties is because of their proximity to Dunlap, his home town, located in Harrison County. Still, his vote totals in these particular counties are impressive. Take Buena Vista County for instance. Two years ago in a presidential election year the total vote cast in the Democratic primary for governor was 599 votes, 321 for Paul Franzenburg and 278 for John Tapscott. Schaben picked up 1.526 votes in Buena Vista County compared to 699 for Gannon and 394 for Rasmussen. A local race contributed to the large voter turn out. While Governor Robert Ray was receiving 2,080 votes in Buena Vista County in the Republican primary in his bid for re-election, the two candidates for the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate — David Stanley and George Milligan — only garnered 893 votes between them, 642 for Stanley and 251 for Milligan. Statewide a sophisticated telephone canvassing campaign played a big role in Schaben's win, but perhaps the single most important factor was Schaben's last minute advertising blitz which apparently won over many undecided voters. Schaben's victory also struck a blow against the party's hierachy, many of whom had thrown their support to Gannon. The governor's race between Ray and Schaben promises to be exciting. The first political salvo of the campaign came Wednesday when Ray told reporters at his news conference that Schaben's campaign slogan is "tell it like it is" and that he (Ray) intends to see that "it's told like it is." Ray, who is seeking a fourth term, has a new radio jingle for the campaign. It's done by Marilyn Maye the nationally known singer who graduated from East High School in Des Moines who has helped Ray in his previous campaigns. Actually, what the jingle amounts to is new words to her theme song suggesting that "everyone here kindly step to the rear and let a winner lead the way." Times certainly have changed since 1968 when Ray first ran for office and some political- observers are already wondering if the radio jingle might backfire "because people are tired of campaign gimmicks." But the key to this fall's election between Ray and Schaben is going to be the independent vote which has been growing steadily in recent years. VFW Juniors Attend Meeting In Ft.

By Stefan Lorant. (Norton, $14.95) Be not dismayed by the gaudy dustcover of this handsome illustrated history of Germany from Bismarck to Hitler; it is a composite drawing of both leaders on which Kaiser Wilhelm's mustache is superimposed. The author's I Was Hitler's Prisoner was a long-ago international bestseller and when he moved to America, his pictorial biography of Lincoln became a pathfinder for the admixture of journalistic history and photographs. This new book would be a splendid one for young adults brought up on Life Magazine. While the bulk of the narrative deals with the rise and fall of Nazi Germany, rare old photographs and ample text describing'the era of Bismarck, World War I and the Weimar Republic precede it. The early Hitler, Lorent characterizes as the best orator of his time because he could transfer his own excitement to the masses. He easily manipulated audiences by playing on their basest emotions and prejudices. By 1933 the fuhrer had the power: a news photo shows him listening to election results on a radio set that is today's antique.

By Molly Haskell. (Holt, Rinehart, $10.00) Women will be interested in this book, certainly, but men should also read it, since Ms. Haskell suggests seriously that it is the fear men have of women's becoming liberated that has caused them to put women down so in films. A good researcher, intelligent and witty, Village Voice film critic Haskell points out how the roles of women have deteriorated sadly since the days of such strong stars as Deitrich, Crawford and Hepburn; even though in the last decade there have been some strong performances, the roles have been demeaning. The author suggests that women are seen as the great directors want them to^ be seen, based on their own early orientation to women. — Pat Doster CARROLL FIRST ASSEMBLY OFGODCHURCH Pastor W. L.

Guest speaker, Michael Fishback of Ankeny ll.V NKA-lMnilnn Krunomisl News Service Across the northern hemisphere farmers are now sowing the crop that, by this summer, should be ripening into the largest harvest ever reaped. It will need lobe. The world's food supply has never before been s6 perilous. Two years ago our granaries were bulging with surplus grain. Today they are touching bottom. The turnaround has been sudden. It started with the failure of the Russian crop in 1972 and of the Indian monsoon later that year. It was aggravated by a sudden reversal in America's farm policy. Not even a record crop last year stopped prices from soaring, or grain from running out of the world's reserves. By the end of this sowing season, world wheat stocks will stand at one-third the level of four years ago, and today there are 300 million more mouths to feed. This season's crop, therefore, is the most important in modern times. If it fails to yield a bumper harvest it will not only make famine a near certainty in areas of the Indian subcontinent; but it will dash the hopes of politicians in the west of bringing inflation under control. It is the unprecedented tripling of wheat prices, and the doubling of soybean, animal feed and beef prices over the past two years that, more than any other factor,has stoked up world inflation. All eyes snouiu uu OH Chicago's, commodity markets. A sudden fall in prices there will have a far greater effect on food prices than any politicians' wranglings. Fortunately early guesses are that this year's farm output should be well up on 1973. In anticipation, some prices have alreadv beeun tr> edge'down. Wheat fell 35 per cent in six weeks. But there is so much lost ground to be made up that it would be optimistic to forecast prices falling back to even double the levels of early 1972. If prices do retreat any further farmers will merely put their harvest in storage rather than pump it on to the market. So prices will remain high and until'the world's granaries are topped up again every harvest will be a close-run thing It is an unhappy situation. The empty storage bins in' Kansas have affected almost every economic indicator in the industrialized world. Americans themselves are now paying 30 per cent more for their food than in 1972. In Japan the food index has climbed 11 per cent in the last three months leaving all other retail prices behind. Britain's food bill has jumped also, adding an extra and quite unprecendented 700 million pounds a year to its balance of payments deficit just to import the same quantity of food. The greatest surprise of all is that the European common market, once isolated from the world grain trade by its exceptionally high farm prices, is now a source of relatively cheap food. These are turnarounds that not a single pundit foresaw two years ago. The rules are now quite changed. Throughout the 1960s harvests were largely routine affairs, attracting little political or economic notice. I APPRECIATE The confidence so many voters placed in me in the primary election last Tuesday. I avow that I will always conduct myself in such a manner as to warrant that confidence.
