ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1956 ONE SECTION - SIX PAGES VOL. 93 - NO. 4$ Ike Sweeps Nation; Loveless Wins Hickenlooper Edges Evans Bourke Hickenlooper successfully won reelection from his Democratic opponent for Tola's sent in the U.S. Senate. Hickenlooner had a lead of nearly 34000 with 1549 of the stf» 0 '«: 2<*<18 precincts reported. Hickenlnoper's total was 381,059 and Evans had 343,112, at 2 i.m. Coad Is 27 Votes Back Of Dolliver Merwin Coad of Boone, Democratic candidate for Congress from the 6th Iowa district, stood to spring what could be one of the big upsets i n Congressional elections around the nation. With 300 out of 345 precincts in the district reporting, he trailed incumbent James I. Dolliver, Republican, by a scant 27 votes. If the Kossuth county totals had not been included in the precincts unreported, Coad would take a fair lead. Dolliver had 54,193 votes, and Coad had 54,166 in the closest Congressional race the 6th district has ever witnessed. The 45 precincts, missing at 4:30 a.m. this morning, will tell the story. Rites Martin Young, Aged 93 Last rites for Martin J. Young, 93*, resident of Algona for the past 31 years, were held Tuesday, Nov. 6, at 2 o.m. at McCullough's Funeral Chapel. Rev. G. G."

Marc Moore seemed headed for reelection as •••nuntv auditor with returns from 9R of the county's 35 precincts tabulated. He held a lead of 587 votes over Herman Studer. with Algona's second and third wards yet to rerinrt. The race for countv attorney was much closer, with Gordon Winkel leading Lou Nitchals, 4401 to 4133. as several late precincts reported, upping the 26 tflVmla+or? fr>r tVio Mhar Vote In 26 of 35 Kossuth Precincts Democrats Seem Headed For Control In Congress Dwight D. Eisenhower won reelection as President of the United States with a coast-to-coast victory, Tuesday. As of 1 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, it was believed that hi3 electoral vote would total 470 from 42 states. He had a certain 457 electoral votes of a needed 266. Adlai Stevenson, his Democratic opponent, seemed destined to carry six states with 61 electoral votes. Stevenson conceded defeat at 12:25 a.m. Wednesday in Chicago. There were a number of states, however, where it seemed that Eisenhower would certainly carry the majority, but returns were still not complete enough to make it final. This was true of the west coast. After Ike. It's Different For Democrats, the chief consolation prize seemed to be that despite the Republican landslide for president, the Democratic party registered a strong vote on state levels and in races for the House of Representatives and U. S. Senate. There were upsets for both sides, however. We'sley Wfcdlttemore With 26 of the 35 precincts from Kossuth county tabulated, as of 4 a.m. today, county voting went as follows: President Eisenhower (R) — 4454. Stevenson (D) — 3943. U. S. Senator Hickenlooper (R) — 3710. Evans (D) — 4302 Governor Hoegh (R) — 3460. Loveless (D) — 4706. Congressman Dolliver (R) — 3703. Coad (D) — 4185. Stale Senator Dewel (R) — 3953. Ridout (D) — 3805. County Auditor Moore (R) — 4288. Studer (D) — 3699. County Attorney Nitchals (R) — 3770. Winkel (D) — 4157. Dewel Holds A 341 Vote State Senate Margin Incomplete returns indicated that D. E. Dewel of Algona had been reelected state senator from the 49th senatorial district of Iowa over Burl Ridout of Estherville. He led by 341 votes. With 26 out of 35 Kossuth precincts reported, and four missing from Palo Alto and three from Emmet, the results were as follows: Dewel (R) — 7987. Ridout (D) — 7646. Two of the largest missing precincts, Algona wards, were expected to give Dewel a substantial majority. Ridout was ahead in Palo Alto county, 1925 to 1560, and trailed county. 2Mfi to 1985. Plathe, Rode, Newel Are Elected As Supervisors Dist. Cmdr. Of Legion Here Kossuth county seemed destined to have at least one new county supervisor, and maybe two, on the basis of election returns at 4 a.m. Wednesday. Charles Plathe in the first district seemed assured of election with four out of seven precincts in. In the second district, with only two out of six precincts tabulated. Jens Sorensen and Kyle Keith were running neck and neck. In the third district, John Rode won over Tom Forburger, 702 to 653 with all but one reported. In the fourth district, Charles Newel held a substantial , lead over Alton Pettit in the fourth with only one precinct missing from the eight in the district.

Wilbur Zeieler, VFW post commander, asked that units wishing to be in the narade assemble in the vicinity of the high school at 10:30 a.m. next Monday, where the pnrade will form. The parado will start at 10:45 a.m., go north on Harlan to State, west on State to the south side of the Court House, where a short program will be held. The high school band will nlav and Ru.«sell Buchanan will be master of ceremonies. Rev. Nflson will offpr a prav- er. and Mayor C. C. Shierk will deliver the address, followed bv a firing squad salute to the dead, tans, and a benediction by Rev. Nelson. Algona business places will close at 10:45 a.m. to noon. Zeigler and Dave Smith, Legion post commander, are cooperating Herschel Loveless, Democratic candidate for governor, appeared to have won the post from Leo Hoegh, Republican incumbent. Loveless was leading Hoegh by a margin of around 40,000 votes at 3 a.m. this morning (Wednesday) with two thirds of the precincts in the state reported. Loveless appeared to be headed for victory in Kossuth county, where returns were among the last in the state to be tabulated. In 22 of Kossuth's 35 precincts Loveless led by about 700 votes. Gov. Hoegh conceded the election to Loveless at 3:05 a.m. It seemed unlikely that the Loveless victory would result in election of any other Democratic candidates on the statehouse ticket. Dolliver vs. Coad With 271 of 345 precincts reported in the 6th Congressional district, incumbent Congressman James I. Dolliver was leading Merwin Coad, Democrat, by a margin of 50,493 to 49,978, a margin that left the final outcome,in doubt until the last ret^rnd mere in. In other Congressional races in Iowa, Republicans were certain of the 1st, 3rd, 7th and 8th districts. They held leads in the 2nd and 5th, but trailed in the 4th district. Thus, Iowa could possibly send one or two Democratic congressmen to Washington. All eight at present are Republicans.
