Soviets Told Nixon Wins MOSCOW (UPI) The Russian people were told Wednesday that Richard M. Nixon had won the American presidency by obtaining a majority of the votes in the "archaic and undemocratic" Electoral College. The Soviet news agency Tass stressed that Nixon had failed to win a majority of the popular vote. And It noted that Nixon will have to face ' substantial majorities" of Democrats in Congress, a situation that will "clearly create serious problems" for him. The Russians were kept up to date on election results all day. Throughout the campaign, the Soviet press has referred to Nixon and Hubert H. Humphrey as the equivalents of Tweedledum and Tweedledee. 'The American people now have no choice," was a typical comment in the Russian papers. 598; R. Ramon (Rav) Houser. 171.

Paper ballots were used in all eight precincts. ever before. He said that one person asked him, "Who is president of the electoral college." He said that both Nixon and Humphrey are for abolition of the electoral college. The speaker said that he too was for its abolition, and for the people to vote directly for president. Bottosto termed the vote for the constitutional revision "wonderful, as it Is more In keeping with the times. It is the best we could get, an Improvement on the old." In closing he said, "When we look at the whole situation it Is a wonderful experience and shows that the voter is sovereign in his power." "Nixon played this one cool. He avoided his characteristic attitude of a sharp comeback. Humphrey gave the image of one who had more solutions than problems." The speaker analyzed the Wallace vote. Wallace, he said, was America's emotional outlet, reflex action. Anyone who was angry or frustrated ran to Wallace. If he had to stand in line for something he blamed the present administration and voted for Wallace. "The Wallace showing was disappointing," Bottosto said. "He was a sectional candidate. It is unfortunate that he was." "Why did the section vote for him? Racial element. I believe this will be the last time the racial element will be a part of the elections." "Maybe it was a good thing that the disgusted and frustrated had a chance to vote for Wallace." In regard to the electoral college, he said that more people learned about it than By HY WHITE Staff Writer Nixon was elected because people wanted to slow things down, according to Dr. Samuel S. Bottosto, head of the department of social science at the Palm Beach Junior College. Bottosto spoke to the Kiwa-nis Club of the Westside Wednesday at Carling House Restaurant on "Re-capitulation of the Election." "The country Is undergoing a vast change, a revolution," the speaker said, "and people wanted it slowed down. I don't know if Nixon can." "He will experience a great deal of trouble if he does not help our lower ethnic groups. This is where the trouble is. He must meet these problems." Bottosto predicted that "we will all have to work hard in the years ahead." "This election is a classic cliffhanger: 43 per cent of the voters were for Nixon and 43 per cent for Humphrey."
