Lawmaker ,,,,,, HM Â«_INDÂ§PENDENIM. - id protest New York Times Service w|\SHINGTON-John Jarjjiah, a 12-term representative from Oklahoma, switched his party affilia- t i o n T h u r s d a y f r o m Democratic'to Republican because of what he termed the liberal excesses of the Democratic Caucus. . Jarmari charged t h a t l i b e r a l representatives were trying to force their views "on this Congress and' on this country by nullifying the seniority s y s t e m a n d punishing those who do not adhere to the liberal party line as laid down by the caucus. "Already three committee chairmen have been purged a n d t h e s a m e thing can be expected at 'the subcommittee level," Jarman said. "1 consider this wrong." 'Â· The reference was to Wednesday's Democratic C a u c u s 'action deposing three long-term southern committee chairmen and replacing them by Demo- c r a t s f r o m n o r t h e r n states. This was formalized Thursday by the full House. President Ford hailed Jarman's.action, saying it is "the sincere conviction of a dedicated member of Congress. "John and I have discussed his becoming a Republican during recent days and he has indicated his belief that he can better represent and serve his district under the banner of the Republican Party," Ford said in a statement released by the White House. The two men are longtime friends Ultimatum *to Senate on election WASHINGTON (UPI) G o v . .'Meldrim Thomson Jr. of New Hampshire warned Thursday that he w i l l a p p e a l to the Su preme Court unless the S e n a t e e i t h e r s c a t s Republican Louis Wyman or returns the issue to his state's voters to decide. If the Senate tries to seat Democrat John Durkin or refuses to send the dispute back to the state for a special runoff election, permitted under a new state law, Thomson said; "we would have no hesitancy to enter a suit in the Supreme Court." Thomson, in a p r e s s conference h e l d jointly w i t h Senate Republican Leader H u g h Scott of P e n n s y l v a n i a , s a i d special-election legislation app'roved by the s t a t e legislature and signed into law was "an invitation to the Senate to send this matte'r back to the people of r$ew Hampshire to decide." -"WE DO NOT believe the U.S. Senate can arbitrarily judge this Senate r a c e , " t h e Republican governor said. "The will of the Senate cannot be substituted for the will of the people of New Hampshire who must decide for themselves w h o t h e i r senator should be." Thomson was unclear as to when he might bring an appeal to the h i g h court, but said that if Durkin were seated, "very likely that would be it." "This is a basic consti- t u t i o n a l confrontation over the sovereignty of states," Thomson s a i d . "Wyman is the duly certified winner. He holds the only valid certification of election." Wyman was declared t h e ' u n o f f i c i a l winner of the race on election night by 355 votes. A recount, however, awarded it to Durkin by 10 votes. After another recount, Wyman was on top by 2 votes and the state election board declared him the winner of the closest Senate election in history. D U R K I N appealed to the Senate for a review of contested ballots, and the Senate has refused to seat either mm, until a decision is reached, .fiiiiiiisun urged the Senate "to respond to our invitation to r e t u r n t h e Wyman-Durkin matter to our slate and to allow the people to settle it in a free election."
