Cochran But Three Months Ago Senator's Chances to Triumph Seemed NH By G. GOULD LINCOLN, Star Staff Correspondent. OMAHA, Nebr„ April 1.—Six months ago. three months ago, it Jooked as though Senator Burke, Nebraska Democrat, hadn’t a China man’s chance in his race for rerioml nation Now the professional gam blers—and some who are not profes sional—are betting on him. If Senator Burke wins this contest against Gov. Roy L. Cochran—who has been the State’s chief execu tive for the last six years—it will be a tribute to the Senator and his rugged (the word is becoming more, popular) independence. He took his political life in his hands when he fought President Roosevelt’s court bill in 1937. And he did the same thing when he promptly went to bat for the President’s plan to repeal the arms embargo in the neutrality lav fight last fall. , 1. the first instance, he courted the opposition of the New Dealers in Nebraska. In the second, he laid himself open to opposition from the large block of German-American voters, estimated at 65,000 to 100,000. On the surface, the odds appear to be too great for Senator Burke to overcome. Not only does he have the oppostioin of the 100 per cent New Dealers and the German American voters — they overlap somewhat—but the opposition of organized labor, as represented by local labor unions, and by some of the railroad labor organizations. His championing amendments to the National Labor Relations Act is re sponsible. Mace Brown, former head of the Omaha Central Labor Union, is making speeches denounc ing Senator Burke. Beneath the Surface. Gov. Cochran is appealing to the farmers against Senator Burke on the ground that the Senator last year voted against the farm parity appropriation. However Senator Burke was paired for the bill carry ing that appropriation this year. There is more than meets the eye, however, in this contest. In the first place, organized labor as such does not cut a great figure in Nebraska. Omaha is regarded as an open-shop town. Furthermore, Mace Brown was removed from the union presidency by William Green, president of the American Federa tion of Labor, because he appeared before a congressional committee and opposed any amendment to the Labor Act. Tlie A. F. of L. had gone on record nationally as favor ing amendments—and the Federa tion's amendments had been intro duced. As for the New Dealers, some of them may go to the support of for mer Gov. Arthur J. Weaver—run ning for the Republican nomination. Senator Norris, independent and strong supporter of the New Deal, has declared his preference for Mr. Weaver over Gov. Cochran and Senator Burke. Mr. Weaver, al though a Republican in the past, is regarded as a New Dealer. If it looks as though Senator Burke has a real chance to defeat Gov. Coch ran, the New Dealers may decide to plunk for Mr. Weaver, hoping to nominate him on the Republican ticket and so have a chance for victory in November. Party Shift. j The German-American voters will have to decide whether they prefer to go into the Democratic primary to vote against Senator Burke, or into the Republican pri mary to support Senator Vanden berg in the presidential preference primary. Only in the cities of some 10,000 population or over is there party registration. In the rural sections the voters may ask for any ballot they desire. In other words, some three-fourths of the voters in Nebraska are at liberty to vote either ticket they prefer. It goes hard, however, for a long-time Re publican or a long-time Democrat to step up and ask for a ballot in the party he has been opposed to. Senator Burke has a good num ber of Republican admirers in the State. Some of them are even going to the length of changing their party registration to vote for him— but these cases are not many. More of them in the outlying districts may j ask for Democratic ballots on April 9 and give Mr. Burke a hand. Two years ago, when the presi dential, purge was under way against Senators who had incurred the wrath of the White House because of their stand against the court bill, Senator Burke probably would have been singled out for slaughter in the primary. This year, however, the purge has not been revived. Feeling Altered. Several things happened which may have altered the feeling of the administration toward Senator Burke. His immediate advocacy of the President's plan to repeal the arms embargo when Congress was called into special session for that purpose last September was one. Although he hails from a section of the country which has been re garded as peculiarly isolationist in sentiment. Senator Burke went down the line for the President in this contest, both speaking and voting for repeal of the ambargo. Also, as chairman of a judiciary committee, he speeded favorable action on the President's nomination of Prank Murphy to be associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Gov. Cochran did not take any stand on the arms embargo repeal —and he has not yet, although efforts have been made to smoke him out. Gov. Cochran has been a good governor. His handling of the State’s financial affairs has been excellent, and Nebraska has kept out of debt—a white spot in the country due to remaining "in the black.” He had some support among the Republicans in 1938 when he was running for re-election-support which he is not likely to have against Senator Burke. Senator Burke has the support of the Omaha World-Herald. The Republicans .have five candi HUGH REILLV Local Distributor FOR DU PONT PAINTS For Prompt Delivery Coll NATIONAL 1703 1334 New York Ave. N.W.

Butler, former national committeeman, a wealthy Omaha grain operator; for mer Representative A. W. Jefferies, former Gov. McMullen, and John H. Miller. The race appears to be be tween Mr. Butler and Mr. Weaver, with the chances favoring Mr. Butler, although Mr. Weaver has been mak ing gains. He will make more If the New Dealers should decide to go for him heavily. It is generally agreed—among Re publicans and Democrats—that if Senator Burke can be renominated he will be re-elected. The Repub licans insist that if Gov. Cochran is the Democratic nominee, they will defeat him. Of course, the Gov. Cochran people admit no such thing. Senator Burke has been engaged in an intensive campaign, speaking six or eight times a day during the last couple of weeks, and he will keep it up until the end of the race. Gov. Cochran also has taken to the stump, but with less speech-making than his opponent. Other Contests. The senatorial contest has over shadowed to some extent the other races. The Republicans have six candidates for the gubernatorial nomination and the Democrats four Republicans, believing that this may be their year, are out in swarms. In the Democratic primary', former Gov. Keith Neville and Terry Car penter, who won the Democratic senatorial nomination in 1936 and was turned down by President Roosevelt in favor of Senator Nor ris, are the leading contenders. President Roosevelt is the only entrant among the Democrats in the presidential preference primary He was entered here, as in other States, without giving his formal assent. If he becomes a candidate, undoubtedly the State's delegation will support him, even though the result of the primary is not legally binding. Some of the delegate can didates have their own preferences if the President does not run. One of them has declared for Secretary of State Hull. The primary vote for President Roosevelt, even though he is unopposed, will be watched with interest as a straw. There is one real election on pri mary day—an election to fill a va canacy in the House caused by the death of the late Representative George H. Heinke, Republican, of the 1st congressional district.
