n 0 Pbg?2A The Kansas City Star Friday January 6 1964 Crucial days ahead lor all candidates By Donald Af Roth berg Asocitd Press writer Washington— It’s time to circle dates on the 1984 calendar— birthdays anniversaries the Super Bowl Fir those addicted to presidential politics March 20 is a date to keep in mind TFT?1? That’s day of the nois primary It’s the date Walter Mondale might lock up the Democratic presidential nomination It also might be the day his White House dream is shaken if not shattered Political buffs will circle Feb 20 the day of the Iowa caucuses and Feb 28 when the New Hampshire primary will be held and March 13 which is Super Tuesday when Democrats in nine states will hold primaries or caucuses Any of those contests could reveal a vulnerability in the Mondale candidacy which now looks so formidable It all could unravel quickly for th£ former viee president if he suffers the fate of other presidential front-runners and stumbles in Iowa or New Hampshire A victory in Iowa could still be a loss if Sen John Glenn of Ohio or Sen Alan Cranston of Califor-niacomes close The New Hampshire primary is another booby trap where the voters seem to delight in turning their backs on favorites and giving a boost to a dark horse Sen Gary Hart of Colorado and Sen Ernest F Rollings of South Carolina are counting on that With Alabama Georgia and Florida Democrats voting on March 13 and caucuses being held in Arkansas Mississippi and South Carolina four days later the South’s voice speaks loudly in the post-Iowa and New Hampshire flurry If you have a complaint or a question about news coverage call Donald D Jones the papers' reader representative His number is 234-4487 Will Jesse Jackson benefit from an outpouring of black voters in the South? Will Reubin Askew Of Florida lock up his home state delegation? Does Mr Glenn’s background as a Marine and astronaut give him a special T:al in the South ? the answer to all those questions turns out to be yes Mr Mondale is in trouble But a more likely result is that he will win more than he loses and the big question will become can he be stopped and by whom Mr Glenn is the likeliest challenger There may be hordes of voters out there ready to respond to his All-American image and give the lie to accounts that his campaign has been a disappointment Sen Alan Cranston is counting on mobilizing the peace movement into an effective base Mr Jackson wants to build a base of the have-nots in American society Mr Hart Mr Hollings Mr Askew and George McGovern are hoping to benefit from voters sending a message that they want “none of the above” when it comes to choosing between Mr Mondale and Mr Glenn The economics of the campaign forces these second-line candidates to choose between Iowa and New Hampshire and one or two other states They must pick their spots If one or two of them manages a surprising showing and if Mr Mondale doesn’t lock it up in events through March 17 then Illinois becomes decisive That diverse state could present a good test if the contest is down to Mr Mondale and Mr Glenn The Byzantine politics of Chicago the bitter rivalry between Mayor Harold Washington and Cook County Democratic leader Edward Vrdolyak would finally get a test PUBLISHER'S NOTICE January 6 1964 Vo! 104 No 93 KANSAS CITY STAR (ISSN0745-1067) The Kansas City Star is pubMsftad dally axcapISatur-days and weekday holidays Subscriptions to The Kansas City Star and Times (12 issues a week) are available either by home delivery or by mail By man postage prepaid morning evening and Sunday (12 issues a week) in Missouri and Kansas $1010 a month residents in Kansas add 3 sales tax elsewhere in the United States and United States possessions $1 1 05 a month In foreign countries $2745 a month Subacrip ttons to morning and Sunday or evening and Sunday editions (7 issues a week) are available either by home delivery or by mail By mail postage prepaid morning and Sunday or evening and Sunday (7 issues a week) in Missouri and Kansas $850 a month residents in Kansas add 3 sales tax elsewhere in the United States and United States possessions $000 a month in foreign countries $1925 a month Second class postage paid at Kansas City Mo Publication office 1 729 Grand Avenue Kansas City Mo 64 108 On to Paris in political fund-raiser By The Associated Press Baton Rouge La— If you want to see Louisiana’s governor-elect or almost any other top politician in the state in late January you’ll have to go to Paris In what’s being billed as the biggest political fundraiser ever third-time Gov -elect Edwin Edwards and 500 supporters legislators and reporters are going to France with side trips to Brussels and Monte Carlo “We’re getting so many legislators we could hold the next session over there or on the planes coming and going” said Mike Baer Senate secretary and one of the organizers Mr Edwards hopes the trip will retire the $44 million debt he incurred by spending close to $13 million to win the governorship for an unprecedented third time “I sure hope this liquidates all of it When I take office March 12 we’d like to have the debt cleared from the books ” he said Supporters are paying $10000 a person or they get two free tickets if they contributed $25000 or more to the Edwards campaign and are willing to “forgive” $20000 of the debt The group will leave New Orleans Jan 19 aboard two planes — an Air France 747 and a Sabena DC-10— and return Jan 26 “It’s going to be a fun trip — but one that will be of great benefit to the state too It’s social trip a cultural trip and an economic trip” said Marion Edwards the governor’s brother and his campaign manager There will be a black-tie dinner at Versailles with heralds trumpeting as the group arrives visits to 10 of the finest restaurants in Paris a special Mass at Notre Dame Catheral a champagne dinner-show at the Lido and a cocktail party at the Eiffel Tower JANUARY FUR CLEARANCE!
