PAGE TWELVE ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1963 Around Springfield GOP Primary Might Be Real Contest This Time H.v DON E. CHAMBERLAIN , Trlrgrnpli Correspondent SPRINGFIELD. 111. (Special)— It Is n hit too parly to predict whnthrr thr Republican slate pri- miiry nexl April will bo open or closed but indications, judging by reported remarks of two major candidates, are it could be a contest for several and maybe all major GOP nominations. II could be not only for Governor and Secretary of State but all the lesser state offices Possibility the candidacy of State Rep. Warren L. Wood. Plainfield former speaker of the Illinois House for four terms, f o r the Republican nomination of lieutenant governor, is under discussion here but inquiry discloses there is no reason to believe he is linked with any faction. It had been rumored earlier he might run with support of Secretary of State Charles F. Carpentier, East Moline. Carpentier for Governor Secretary Carpentier is an avowed candidate for Republican Governor and will make his formal announcement with considerable whoopla in his home town Aug. 4. Monday of this week he and State Sen. Arthur J. Bidwill, River Forest, and long-time friend and political associate, wore principal guests at a $50 ticket testimonial dinner here, w h i c h j served to boost Carpentier further for GOP Governor. The Secretary told a newsman last week he is not forming any ticket as such for the primary, and this could be shocking news to some aspirants who had hoped for his blessing. Carpentier said, "I believe this is an open primary and that anyone who wants to run, should enter it." Earlier Cong. Elmer J. Hoffman, Wheaton, said he was running on his own for Republican Secretary of State. Moreover, Carpentier, queried if he had okayed Wood as a running mate, says he knows of many more who plan to enter the primary for Republican nominations, but declined to list them "because it may develop some will change their minds between now and December. Besides if they do decide to run, they will want to make their own announcements as they should." Cunningham "Interested" . A recent visitor to Springfield was Peoria County State's Atty. James V. Cunningham, who told newsmen he was "interested" in the GOP nomination for attorney general. At least one other entry is in this primary; he is Sen. Robert Canfield of Canfield of Rockford, who made his formal announcement in May. Cunningham makes no secret of his admiration for Charles Percy, Chicago, the chairman of the board of Bell & Howell Co.. who is also "interested" in the GOP gubernatorial nomination. And he also is a friend of State Treasur- William Scott, with whom he talked when he visited Springfield. Other names mentioned as possibilities for the Republican lieutenant governor nomination in- | elude Dwight Friodrich. the sen- | actor from Centralia and John Graham, the senator from Barrington. and State Rep. William J. Murphy, Antioeh, Republican majority leader of the Illinois House. To list again one other certainly in the Republican primary next year, Congressman Hoffman will make his announcement for secretary of state nomination at Wheaton next month. However, should Carpentier falter in his gubernatorial planning Hoffman may go for governor. And while (here is no announcement of any kind yet — and presently, there is no reason to expect one — still another development interests many Republicans. That concerns former Gov. William G. Stratton. who has 12 years eligibility in the state pension system. To qualify for a pension, he must have at least 15 years in the system. Leaving his money in the pension fund dors not produce any accrued money interest for him, but the interesting political point is that he has left his 12 years Findlcy Visit CARLINVILLE - Congressman Paul Findley will be in Carlinville Friday from 4 to 5 p.m. at the post office building to visit with friends and talk with his constituents. If time permits he plans to visit in the business district. Hr will spend Friday night in Carlinville and then go to Pittsfield for a Republican fund-raiding dinner there Saturday night for Pike County. of contributions in that fund. The obvius question is why? Unless he intends to re-enter public life, there is no reason. At present, however, the question is easier asked than answered, and the former governor is not saying any- thnng. Boots and Saddle Show Set Sunday at Harris Grounds Final plans have been made for the horse show of the Illinois Boots and Saddle Club, to be held at I p.m. Sunday at the club grounds on Harris Lane.
