Ogilvie is set to start from Padticah today on a week-long motorized campaign swing through Southern Illinois. Daniel .1. Walker, Ogilvie's Democratic rival, also plans to focus his "people-to- people" campaign on the region later in the week as the two men intensify their battle for the state's top executive post. Ogilvie, who is kicking off a three-week tour of the state by camper truck, stops first in Metropolis for breakfast and hand-shaking. The governor then heads north, with plans to campaign at a number of points along the road to Mount Vernon, where he will spend the night. Both Ogiivie and Walker are scheduled to be in DuQuoin Wednesday at the Hambletonian, the world series of harness racing. From there, Ogilvie pushes north to Belleville and Walker moves to Cairo and Metropolis. Other Walker campaign stops are set for Lawrenc e v i 11 e , New Hebron, Robinson, Annapolis, Greenup, Charleston and Carbondale. Walker had been scheduled to make a joint appearance with R. Sargent Shriver at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale Thursday. But Sunday, the Democratic nominee for vice president canceled, saying he had to attend strategy conferences with Sen. George S. McGovern.
