It has been one of the harder- fought eleotion? in Iowa's history, and polls seem to indicate republicans will' stage at least ( some comeback from the deba-1 cle of 1964 when Goldwater and i Hultmjan led a downward plunge for the party. Both parties have put up strong fights for the voter's favor, and for the first time republicans are conducting an active campaign to unseat democrats in the Kossuth courthouse. POLLS INDICATE Jack Miller, Republican incumbent, will have a good edge over E. B. Smith, democrat, for U.S. Senator. They head the two tickets this year. Polls also indicate that Wm. Murray, republican, has made some gains over Governor Harold Hughes in recent days. However, the polls indicate the edge to Hughes which may lull some democrats into inaction and may prod republicans into voting.

Mills, Marshalltown •epublican, who has been a state senator and has many i'ol- owers in the state. BIG FIGHT IN THIS AREA is between Wiley Mayne, repub- ican, against Stanley Greigg, democrat, both of Sioux City. It is believed Greigg will have big labor union vote in Sioux Oity which Mayne will have to overcome with republican majorities in the rest of the district. Few commentators give the nod to either one-rating it a toss-up. There are candidates on 1'our other tickets-National Prohibition, Peace Independent, American Constitution, and Iowa -but few expect any of them to get more than a scattering of voles.
