By ULRIC BELL, Washington Correspondent, The Courier-Journal. Courier-Journal. Courier-Journal. New York, Nov. 8. A new deal today was ordained by the American people. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected to be the thirty-second thirty-second thirty-second President of the United States, the second man of the name so to be chosen. John Nance Garner of Texas was elected Vice President. A Democratic Senate was added to a Democratic House to smooth the way of the President-to-be President-to-be President-to-be President-to-be President-to-be in meeting- meeting- meeting- problems as great as any President ever faced. Mr. Roosevelt, surrounded in Democratic headquarters here by a happy family and by a happy host of admirers, expressed the hope-that hope-that hope-that his Administration would take the country around the bend to prosperity. He knew that the country's psychology was that of welcoming a "happy-days" "happy-days" "happy-days" era with the overwhelming repudiation o'f Herbert Hoover and twelve years of Republican rule. Long before returns from the West Coast had come in. it was apparent that the champion of the "forgotten man" had been swept into office. It was a landslide. The Democratic ticket carried forty-two forty-two forty-two States. It won 472 electoral votes to an indicated 50 for Hoover, less than Al Smith received. It surpassed in its triumph that of Mr. Hoover four years
