J > fhft Pally fteristtf-Mail, Jkk^mM. Monday, October 10, Democrats Eye Chance to Cut House Edge WASHINGTON (UP )-Two 8pe- CU1 elections next month will give Democrats a chance to cut Republican control of the House down tb a razor-thin margin of one vote. The elections will be held Nov 3 In New Jersey and Nov. 10 in California to replace Republican members who have resigned. Present lineup in the House Is 218 Republicans, 214 Democrats, one independent and the two vacancies. The Democrats wouldn't win control even if they won both this New Jersey and California elections. But they could reduce the GOP margin to the lowest pos sible point. GOP control of the Senate has already been reduced to a rock bottom margin. In fact, there are more Democrats (48) in the Senate than there are Republicans • (47). The Republicans retain control of Senate chairmanships and other organizational machinery only with the support of independent Wayne L. Morse (Ore.) and the potential tie-breaking vote of Vice President Richard M. Nixon. The surprise Democratic victory in Wisconsin's Ninth'Congressional District last week put new emphasis and" importance on the New Jersey and California races. Democrats believe their best bet lies in the California contest. It is a four-way race for the seat vacated by Republican N o r r i s Poulson when he resigned to become mayor of Los Angeles. The candidates are Gienard Lipscomb and John Collier, both Republican members of the state Legislature; attorney George L. Arnold, who has the backing of the district Democratic organization; and Irving Markheim, who lost to Poulson in 1952 by a vote of 119,799 to 17,601. Arnold is the son of former Federal Judge Thurman Arnold. VATES C1TYANS WED 65 YEARS—Mr. tid Mrs. George Addis of Yates City celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary Sunday, Oct. 11, when many pleasant surprises were unfolded. As Mr. and Mrs. Addis had not been in the best of health, friends made brief, enjoyable visits bringing lovely greetings, gifts and food. Mrs. Edson Bowman, representing about thirty neighbors, made a clever presentation of a money gift; one dollar bills arranged to form a wheel and pinned to an appropriately decorated background. Later, Mrs. Addis was heard to say: "Land sakes! I've never seen so much money." A long-time friend of the couple, Ed Landy, called in the afternoon, bringing his violin. It was a bit difficult for Mr. Landy to play since he was overcoming the results of a stroke. Nevertheless, he played several old-time favorite songs and waltzes to bring back pleasant memories. Among family members present from Rio, Yates City, Peoria, Canton and Roseville, was a grandson, Jack Addis of New York, who is attending Bradley University at Peoria.

Adams, former governor of New Hampshire, was introduced last week in Kansas as "the governor of Massachusetts." This accolade was bestowed on him by Harry Darby, Kansas GOP national committeeman. As the day wore on, Darby's accuracy of introduction did not improve. At the American Royal Livestock and Horse Show Darby hailed Adams as "the assistant President of the United States." "Holy cow," exclaimed a member of the President's staff, "he must be talking about Nixon." Adams was quite philosophic about the whole business. "They promoted me," he said, "and I wish it would stick."

IS GIVING KIDS "THEIR MEDICINE". Actor Opens Tough Fight For Divorce By JAMES BACON LOS ANGELES W—Movie he- man John Wayne, who admits he is scared of all women, battles his Mexican wife today in what promises to be one of the longest and stormiest divorce trials in movie- land history. "Big Duke," the screen's top box office star, wants a divorce from the former Espcranza Bauer and also a sizable slash from what he terms "fantastic" separate maintenance demands of the 31-year-old Latin actress. Both sides charge extreme cruelty. The Wayne forces are geared for a trial lasting until Christmas. However, producer Bob Fellows, Wayne's partner in movie-making, has a "hunch" that the case will be settled on the courthouse steps. Wayne said that he offered his estranged wife "more money than she will ever get from any court" but that she turned all offers down cold. Atty. Jerry Rosenthal, Mrs. Wayne's counsel, denies that the offers were that attractive and added: This girl doesn't care whether she gets 2 cents or 2 millions. All she wants is a legal definition of what she is entitled to—not an arbitrary one. She just wants a fair shake." In a stormy temporary alimony hearing last May, Mrs. Wayne asked for $9,350 monthly to sustain her in the manner befitting a wife of a movie star. A judge told her she would have to get along on $1,100 a month, J Table Pretties!
