The odd digits are due to Inclusion of the official vote of 237,632 cast in Maine Sept 11 for house candidates. Incidentally, the Maine vote for governor and house nominees exceeded those totals In the presidential year of 1948 and came after what some party leaders sai* was a rather apathetic campaign.
