and democratic parties certain
law offices frame the platforms to
be adopted in the post-primary
party conventions. While the voters
seldom know what these platforms
contain and the conventions are
held after the candidates are select
ed at the primaries, the bunk in the
platforms become ballyhoo for the
The party managers, failing to
install the old convention setup
during the last session, will make
another try in 1939.
The general defensive tactics of
the unicameralists will be based on
higher salaries for the legislators,
an iron-clad anti-lobby law, and a
general defense of the non-partisan
The personal records of the leg
islators will be compiled and the
members given ratings based on
100 per cent. These ratings will
be discussed openly in the cam
paign, should a number of the pre
sent members seek office.
Inside gossip in unicameral ranks
indicates that only 8 or 9 of the
members of the present session
have any chance of reelection.
Legislator Norton claims fourteen
progressives whfl ought to be re
turned. All the setups discard the
present members from Lancaster
and Douglas counties.
Governor Cochran has given out
mild criticisms of the unicameral.
There are indications that he may
seek a third term. Terry Carpen
ter is already in the field. There
is sentiment for John N. Norton
as a democratic candidate, and a
growing demand for Senator
Charles A. Defoe. Attorneys of the
state, however, are talking of ju
dicial honors for Dafoe. Dr. A. P.
Fitzsimmons of Tecumseh is being
discussed as a possible candidate
for the governorship, and also as
a likflly candidate for congress, if
Congressman Luckey should not
staunchly support the President..
The republican gubernatorial sit
uation is not attracting the atten
tion it deserves. Speaker Warner
a logical candidate for the nomina
tion, got entangled in the commit
tee of the whole scrap. In this
mixup he alienated the support of
the progressives. William Madgett
of Hastings, probably will not take
any part in the 1938 scrap. The
attitude of 0. S. Spillman of Nor
folk is not known. Amos Thomas
of Omaha, president of the legisla
tive council, is a possibility in War
Kenneth Wherry of Pawnee City,
is really the man who is gaining
strength as the possible republican
nominee. He recently assailed Sec
retary Banning of the department
of agriculture on the matter of gas
oline tax collections. Wherry in
sisted on no shrinkage in the cash
collections. He came out of the
fray with Banning’s scalp. Wherry
is backed by Sam Klaver of Omaha,
one of the shrewdest political
organizers in the state. Should
Wherry be a candidate, nothing
can defeat him in Douglas county.
He carried th* county in 1932.
During the la^t two years his posi

Bids on about $1,100,000 worth of
