WASHINGTON (AP) Democrats have won control of the Senate for the llth straight election, picking up at least four Republican seats in a showing that fell short of their post-Watergate hopes. The majority party was assured of 62 senators in the 94th Congress as the counting in a Nevada race went to the wire today with the Republican, former Gov. Paul Laxalt, clinging to a lead of only 600 votes over Democrat Harry Reid. An Oklahoma contest also proved a cliffhanger before incumbent Republican Henry M. Bellmon emerged with a narrow but safe margin at midday in his battle with former Democratic Rep. Ed Edmonson. vided 248 to 187, but substantially more liberal and inclined to vote for social programs like a national health plan and for tax revision. President Ford, accepting the verdict, said late Tuesday he expects the new Congress to work with him and that "the mandate of the electorate places upon the next Congress a full measure of responsibility" for coping with inflation. House Speaker Carl Albert said of the nationwide results, heavily altered the composition of some state delegations and toppled one Republican stalwart after another. Four Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee who initially voted against impeachment of Richard M. Nixon, but changed after the final incriminating testimony became known, were defeated: Charles W. Sandman Jr. and Joseph J.

Johnson's presidential landslide victory of 1964. With the issue still undecided in 26 races, Democrats had won 281 seats, including 43 now held by Republicans, while giving up only five of their own. Republican fears that the electorate would vote its unhappiness over the economy, Watergate and related woes proved true. The outlook was for a House not only more heavily Democratic than the present one, di- Thornton, 5 officers re-elected LITTLE ROCK i AP) - Reo. hay M. morn ton, D-Ark., and five Democratic constitutional officers were re-elected Tuesday because each was unopposed. The five are Atty. Gen. Jim Guy Tucker, Secretary of State Kelly Bryant, state Treasurer Nancy Hall, state Auditor Jimmie "Red" Jones and Land Commissioner Sam Jones. Lord Hailes LONDON - Lord Hailes, 73, former British governor-general of the West Indies, died Tuesday, his family announced in London. Lord Hailes, formerly Patrick Buehan-Hepburn, was named to the West Indies post in 1957 and worked there for five vears. GO-ACRE COMPLEX AROUND CAPITOL LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The secretary of state of Arkansas is in charge of the state capitol building and surrounding 60- acre complex. Arkansas's capitol is strikingly similar to the national Capitol. David Pryor (Continued from Front Page) Pryor, speaking to a victory celebration, promised his most diligent efforts as governor and cautioned: "These are going to be some pretty perilous times." Speaking as though Bumpers were present, Pryor told the outgoing governor: "Nobody in this state realizes how big a pair of shoes can be. I want you to know that I'm going to try to fill those shoes and that in spite of the tremendous record and accomplishments that he (Bumpers) has made to the state of Arkansas, that I'm going to do my very best to be the best governor that we've ever had." Coon called honesty the big issue in the campaign against Pryor. He tried to link Pryor with big campaign donations from "vested interests" and advertised himself as "the man they can't buy." Pi-yor declined to meet Coon's challenge to debate the issues and also refused to follow Coon's example of opening campaign contributions books for public inspection. In fact, Pryor campaigned very little for the general election, being the heir apparent to Bumpers following the May 28 Democratic gubernatorial primary victory. Pryor beat Lt. Gov. Bob Riley of Arkadelphia and former six-term Gov. Orval E. Faubus of Huntsville in that contest. While living at Camden, Pryor began his political career with three terms in the Arkansas House, then won three terms as 4th District congressman. But his political stock suffered a setback two years ago when he took on incumbent John I,. McClellan in the race for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate. McClellan beat Pryor in a runoff. About the only general election issue that brought Pryor into what clearly was a campaign posture was the charge by Coon that Associated Milk Producers Inc. had written a check for Pryor. AMPI has been convicted of making illegal donations to other campaigns. Pryor called Coon's charge an "out and out fraud" and threatened to file a complaint with the fair campaign practices group in Washington. The check in question was for $100 for 10 tickets to a 1969 meeting in Oklahoma where Pryor was a substitute guest speaker. Pryor said that his investigation showed that the check was written to the Democratic party, not to him, and he said the transaction took place without his knowledge and involved him in no way. Pryor later decided not to file a complaint. He said he had concluded that it would not be productive. Besides, he said, it didn't appear that "anyone is believing these charges." LITTLE ROCK (AP) Amendment 57, the controversial proposal to eliminate the 10 per cent interest ceiling < in Arkansas, was soundly defeated by Arkansans Tuesday. Amendment 54, aimed at allowing the state government to do some of its own printing as a cost-saving measure, appeared headed for adoption and Amendment 56 looked like it had a chance of adoption. The fate of the other constitutional proposal, Amendment 55, was in doubt. It was trailing slightly. Amendment 57 was being defeated by about a 6-1 margin. The unofficial vote totals, with reports from 1,409 of the 2,745 precincts, were: —Amendment 54, for 114,256, against 93,146. —Amendment 55, for 101,834, against 105,670. -Amendment 56, for 109,486, against 102,049. -Amendment 57, for 33,893, against 194,844. " The proposals were: Here's what the proposals were designed to do: —Amendment 54: Let the state government agencies print some of the materials they use. The existing Constitution says that all printing and stationery supplies used by the state government must be bought by the state. —Amendment 55: Eliminate the existing Constitution's limits on salaries for legislators and state constitutional officials while establishing the mechanics for raising the salaries through legislative acts. ., —Amendment 56: Streamline county government by limiting the size of quorum courts, which are the county legislative bodies, to no more than 15 nor fewer than nine members and giving additional authority to those bodies. —Amendment 57: Delete the Constitution's 10 per cent, across-the-board limit on interest in Arkansas and give the legislature authority to set new interest rates. The state Constitution, last amended in 1968 with adoption of the proposal allowing the establishment of a state-aided system of public school kindergartens, was adopted in 1974. It had been amended 53 times in the 100 years prior to Tuesday's election. Wholesale revision of the Constitution was turned down in the 1970 election when Arkansans defeated a proposed new constitution. Among the constitutional proposals this year, Amendment 57 was the center of most of the controversy. It was the only one of the four not referred to the people by the legislature, being put on the ballot, instead, by a petition campaign. Bankers and businessmen were the main backers of the proposal, contending that they — and the state — were hurt economically by the interest limit. While interest the banks had to pay on funds borrowed from the federal system rose above 10 per cent, they could charge no more than 10 on the loans Uhey made, putting them in a I money-losing posture, they argued. : Businessmen also said that credit accounts restricted to an interest charge of 10 per cent were money-losing operations. The advertising campaign for Amendment 57 said that because of the credit problem, the front-end price of retail goods were higher in Arkansas by 3 to 7 per cent than in other states. Foes of Amendment 57 argued that the interest limit was a protection for the consumers, especially those in low and middle income brackets. Most observers said the absence of any new ceiling in the proposed amendment probably was the main factor making it unpalatable to a majority of Arkansans. sey; David diana; and Iowa. Harold V. Froelich of Wisconsin, who supported impeachment, also lost his bid for re-election. Rep. Earl F. Landgrebe of Indiana, a bitter-end supporter of Nixon, lost. At least two ranking Republican members of major committees, Reps. William B. Wld- nall, R-N.J., of the Banking Committee, and William G. Bray, R-Ind., of Armed Services, succumbed to Democratic challenges. Democrat Richard F. VanderVeen held on to the Michigan seat Ford had represented for 25 years before becoming vice president. VanderVeen won re-election despite Ford's personal campaigning for the Republican challenger, Paul G. Goebel Jr. Rep. Joel T. Broyhill, an 11- termer long considered unbeatable in his Virginia district adjoining Washington, was upset by Democrat Joseph Fisher, E. Harris' victory over publican Rep. Stanford E. Parris. The New Jersey delegation went from eight Democrats and seven Republicans to 12 Democrats and three Republicans. The Indiana delegation from four Democrats and seven Re- one in Louisiana. The Democratic incumbent was not a candidate in either face. They defeated three Democratic incumbents, Frank M. Clark of Pennsylvania, Frank E Denholm of South Dakota and Thomas A.

T» Last month's Tidal Basin incident and the illegal gifts to "draft Mills" groups which operated in behalf of his 1972 presidential nomination campaign had been expected to hurt Mills' re-election bid. But he told a victory celebration Tuesday night he believed he had been damaged more by news media reports of his congressional power. That made voters blame him for inflation and other problems, he said. Of the reputation for power Mills said: "I think that can be a liability rather than an asset." Mills, who persistently refused to be interviewed by newsmen about the details of either of the controversies surrounding his re-election bid, was confronted by them again Tuesday night. "I'm not going to talk about it," he said of the incident in which a former stopper from Mills' car jumped into the Tidal Basin in Washington after police stopped the car about 2 a.m. Oct. 7. Police said Mills was intoxicated and bleeding from face cuts which he said were suffered when he kept the ex- stripper, Annabell Battistella, from jumping out of the car before police stopped it.
