Now, Dole's stepping stone to national prominence has become a political millstone, and he finds himself in an uphill battle for re-election in a slate that last elected a Democratic 'tenator in 1938. Dole's Democratic opponent is Rep. William R. Roy, a lawyer Â«nd physician and former Re publican who Is completing his Â· second term in the House. ' Well ahead of Roy in the : . polls last spring, Dole apppears to be slipping behind as th Â· Nov. 5 election nears. A poll by Central Researc' ' Corp. of Topeka released Sept ! 52 gave Roy 50 per cent of tin vote, Dole 42 per cent with er cent undecided. That was a wo-point gain for Roy In a nonth.

Appearing with Uoy Sunday on the CBS program "Face the Nation," . Dole said that President Ford has now become a landicap for him. Republicans vere encouraged when Ford look over, he said, but then "along came the pardon (ot Xixon) and amnesty. "I don't need any more help of that kind before November," he added.

So why is the president of ABC Sports producing the singer's coming TV special? : "One reason is that I greatly admire the guy," says Roone Arledge, head of ABC Sports since 1968. "But it's also that I think the idea of doing the show live is incredibly exciting. "I've been arguing for a long time that television has to get back into doing variety shows and things'like that live again. And when I heard about this show, I told everyone I wanted te do it." The no-tape special will bf broadcast by ABC-TV from Madison . Square Garden on Sunday evening, Oct. 13. It's Si natra's second TV special.since hÂ« gave up a self-imposed two year retirement from show biz. Arledge, a major influence in network sports coverage ever since he joined ABC 14 years ago, was asked if he'd like ti produce similar enlerlainmen specials should the Sinatra Â«how prove a hit.

A physician who specialized In obstetrics and gynecology, lie delivered more than 5,000 Topeka babies. He received a law degree just before running for the House Beat of incumbent Republican Chester Mize in 1970. In his four years in the House, he has concentrated, on health care legislation.
