Washington, Nov. 9 (AP) The same avalanche of votes that carried Franklin D. Roosevelt to victory this morning assured the Democrats of comfortable majorities in hpth House and Senate beginning next March 4. V,y . o'clock, the Democrats had won five seats now held by Republicans, sufficient to give them control of the Senate, and were leading in most of the other contests. Several old-timers in the Senate Republican ranks al- j ready were beaten or dangerously close to defeat. James j Connecticut; Moses of New Hampshire, Smoot of Utah, and Otis Glenn of Illinois were all out of the race. Thomas of Idaho and Jones of Washington were among those trailing their opponents. Oddie of Nevada lead and trailed alternately by a few votes. Republicans had won only two seats, in Vermont and North Dakota, while the Democrats had added sixteen to their thirty-one holdovers. The Democrats also added fifteen Republican scalps in the House to the two they acquired in Maine last September, as they headed for a real working majority.

By ULRIC BELL, Washington Correspondent, The 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 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 in 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 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" 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 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 ago. Acts to Allay "Fear." It swept Republican strongholds considered impregnable. As the returns rolled in from the West tonight it was apparent that the Democratic candidates had ridden to their victory upon a gigantic tide of ballots.

What Governor Roosevelt sought first of all to allay was the notixm that the people might "fear" his regime. This idea spread by Herbert Hoover and his spokesmen on an extreme scale during the closing days of the campaign, was repudiated overwhelmingly by the voters.
