While the election of 1956 is now history, there has been considerable speculation in the county as to the comparative voting in 1952 and 1956. The Upper Des Moines made the comparison, as shown above, based entirely on the vote for the head of each ticket, which found the same men running for president against each other in both national election years. Each precinct vote is shown, with the votes for Eisenhower under "E" and the votes for Stevenson under "S". In each case, the 1952 vote is at the top, and the 1956 vote for each man is second. On the basis of comparisons, there was a switch in voting of between 12 and 13 percent from 1952 to 1956 so far as the head of the tickets is concerned. In 1952 Ike received 7,757 votes in Kossuth and Stevenson 4,332. In 1956 it was 6,776 for Ike and 5,522 for Stevenson. Ike thus dropped 981 in Kossuth county, and Stevenson gained 1,189 votes in the four-year interval. NOTES OF SERVICE MEN SAN DIEGO — Mark F. Koll- aseh, seaman, USN, son uf Mr and Mrs Fred H.

UDM Classifieds Pay Dividend* NFO Ask Ike To Boot Benson Kossuth county was represented at the National Farm Organization (NP^O) convention held Nov. 12, 13 and 14 at St. Joe, Mo.
