And the care with which the slates of the two major political parties are being arranged gives evidence of one of the most active, and probably the most bitter November election in many years, even j eclipsing some of the bitterness of the old New Deal days. The ramifications of the approaching campaign are enough to keep students of political activities in"Illinois on their toes, and it goes without saying that a majority of those whose principal participation Deal Blows Documents Reveal Soviet Bases Used by Germany Before Russia in War WASHINGTON, Jan. 22--U.R-- \ Stalin, according to the German foreign office documents Account, categorically rejected the Survey Indicates Ohio Republican Easiest to Beat By LYLE C.

In the off-year election, Republican Richard Yates Rowe was elected slate treasurer for a two-year term and Superintendent of Public Instruction Vernon L.

It would be no surprise if a situation comparable to the 1944 split election were to materialize this year, although it is obvious cither party would be pleased to sweep the entire state, giving majorities to both state and national candidates.
