'(XKK.f NSWS Saylor's Vktory Encourages GOP Pennsylvania Vote • May Point Way for Election! in 1950 By JM* Bell WASHINGTON, Sept, !S. (AP) — Republicans crowed today that a "OOP victory in * Peniuylvnnia congressional race was n stinging rebuke" to President Truman's do- tnwtle policies, Hailing the triumph of Republican John P. Saylor over Mrs. Robert L.

Said Rep. Leonard ' Hall of New York, chairman of the OOP congressional campaign committee: Mar Point (o 1950 Trends "If the President and ills followers are wise, they will see in (lie outcome of Pennsylvania's 26th congressional district election an omen of what awaits them In 1950 and perhaps awaken to the fact that Americans rfo not want to be led down the back road to socialism."

Mrs. Coffey called for repeal of the Tail-Hartley act. Like Senator Tail (R-OWo). Saylor «aid some changes in the act were necessary.

But he appeared happiest about Ihe success of Republican efforts to convince the voters that President Truman is veering toward "stHtlsm." a term the Republicans variously define to imply that the Democrats »re trying to substitute a paternalistic government for Individual Initiative. Rebuff for I.e[t Wingers Saylor has branded as "carpet - baggers" the AFL and CIO labor lenders brought Into the district to help Mrs. Coffey In her campaign. She Is the mother of the lr*s Rep. Robert L. Coffey. Jr., war hero who last fall broke the Republican's 10- year-long control of the district. Gabrielson said in his statement that the results added up to a rebuff to "left-wing garni squads." , In a race watched closely for a possible Indication of voting trends next year, Saylor ran ahead in industrial Johnstown, where the Democratic candidate had been expected to pile up a large niArgin. Democrats were quick to note that the 26th District was in Republican hands from 1938 until Coffer won in last year's election by > margin of 12.000 votes. In advance, however, both parties had regarded the contest as • test of Mr. Truman's prog rain and of the. effectiveness of the Republicans In attacking it.
