HISOLD J. BURTON ARPHIVSS AS3ISTAMT INDIANA STATE LIBRARY IMBIAMAPOLIS, INDIA* County Vote Listed By Precincts On Page 6 ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER -j4, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON, INDIANA VOLUME £9, NUMBER 28 TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, THURSDAY,, NOVEMBER 5, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY —35 CENTS PER WEEK LBJ GAINS CONTROL OF CONGRESS INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—Final official returns from Indiana's election may show that more Hoosiers went to the polls Tuesday than four years ago. But on the basis of comparisons between the Johnson-Goldwater totals and the Kennedy- Nixon totals of 1960, it appeared the ballot volume was lower this time. _ President Johnson and Sen. Barry Goldwater received 2,071,080 votes -between them, with Johnson's margin in win-.! ning the state's 13 electoral votes set at 254,238. Four years ago, John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon received 2,127,478 votes between them, with Nixon's margin 222,762. This would- indicate .56,398 fewer voters went to the polls this year, despite iHuch higher registration and a substantial increase in population in the state the past four years. However, what doesn't show up is the size of the so-called protest vote for minor party nominees. This will not be available until the Indiana secretary of state tallies up the final official vote for certification of winners, probably within the next 10 days, after receiving the official returns from county clerks and canvassing boards throughout the state. .. -< Political obsecvers believe that if the presidential vote fell j off this time, it- was duetto voter disenchantment with both the national tickets, including presidential and vice-presidential nominees. However, there's a strong •possibility the Prohibition and Socialist-Labor presidential tickets won some backing from thousands of partisans who couldn't see their way clear -to support the Republican or Democratic candidates. Ordinarily, these minor party nominees receive a small handful of votes. This year, the size of this vote could have been much larger, and hidden at the bottom of the ballot stacks until the canvassing boards ferret it out belatedly; Probably the most surprising outcome of the Indiana election after Roger Branigin's guberna torial win by a ticket-leading margin of 260,846 votes, 6,594 more than Johnson's margin, was the 'fact no white backlash r showed up in Lake County.

" • The former actor said that although he was "happy" with Goldwater as the Republican j presidential candidate, "I didn't' tie up my campaign with Goldwater because he was suffering from a bad image which made him look—wrongly—as 'trigger happy.' " Speaking of Tuesday's tri-. umph over Salinger Murphy said: "Gov. (Edmund G.) Brown cinched the election for me when he appointed Salinger to the seat of late (Democratic) Sen. Clair Engle. The people apparently agreed with me that the appointment was illegal. And I still say it's illegal and I'm going to prove it." The new California senator also said' he felt the "carpet- bagging" issue hurt Salinger, who moved to California from Virginia to run for Engle's seat in California, where Salinger was born. . _ The onetime movie dancer also said his chances, for being elected increased greatly after he and Salinger/debated on television. ' / As for President Johnson's landslide victory over Goldwater, Murphy said that would not hurt him in the Senate.

GOLDSMITH United Press International PHOENIX,.Ariz. (UPlj—Sen. Barry Goldwater,. with one political defeat already chalked up against him, today.-was faced with another . impending battle to keep, the Republican party marching to" his conservative tune. . . -' - r. . Such a battle, or perhaps even ! a series of them, was clearly in prospect. Goldwater expects it, and he is committed to make the fight to keep. the party aligned to his conservative philosophy.' Political battles were' not on the senator's mind Wednesday," however. He went shopping and bought two paintings. One, by Martin Roomer, was of a scene in Spain and Goldwater-thought it just right for a new' addition to his kitchen. The other he bought for his daughter, Peggy, who likes pictures of clowns. It was a' picture of a clown crying. According to Press Secretary Paul iF. Wagner, Goldwater tacked on a note: "I voted for Barry." Place Blame Goldwater blames his crushing election defeat, in part, on the Republicans who opposed his nomination and who, in his words, "would not vote or work." Their action he contrasts with that of conservatives who worked hard for moderate candidates,in other years. :Goldwa\er_u thinks his opponents tiabV a right fb~"withhold their support from-his- campaign, but>"l don't think we can build a Republican • party on their, concepts which, -in my opinion, have' no difference •• at all with the Democratic concepts." * In a post-mortem news conference Wednesday Goldwater said he does not feel that the conservative cause has been hurt at. all by his defeat. Referring to the size of his own jvofe, he said, "25. million votes is ja lot of votes, and a lot of pec pie dedicated to the concept of :onservatism." Continuing Effort I eferring to his statement an- noi ncing for the presidency early in January, Goldwater in- Add At Least 32 Seats to Majority ministration GOP Gains By HALE MONTGOMERY United Press IntrenationaL WASHINGTON (UPI) — Re- By RAYMOND LAHR -United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI)—President Johnson emerged from the election struggle today in a better position to command action on his legislative program than | any . chief executive since the high water mark of the New Deal. j From its disaster the Republican party emerged bitterly di- publicans Weathered a torrent j vided between its pro-and anti- of anti-Gold water votes to' wind up today with a net gain of one governorship, but Democrats still held the nation's state. Houses in a firm grip. The outcome of gubernatorial battles in 25 states indicated massive split-ticket voting decided many of these contests largely on local issues Republicans defied the national returns to oust Democrats in three states — Washington, Wisconsin and Massachusetts. Democrats replaced Republicans in two — Utah and Arizona. The net GOP pickup of one trimmed the Democratic edge from 34-16 to 33-17 in the 50 states. Michigan . Gov. George \V. Romney survived the Democratic landslide to enhance his 'prospects as a future GOP presidential possibility. But in Illinois Republican Charley- H. Percy, once considered a likely prospect, failed to unseat Democratic Gov. Otto Kerner. * '""'"' Romney, 'who declined to endorse Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, won by about 400,000 votes over Democratic Congressman Neil Staebler, despite a more than 2- to-l margin for President Johnson in the state. Bucked Landslide In Rhode Island, GOP Gov. John H. Chafee bucked a Johnson avalanche to win re-election. He defeated Democratic Lt. Gov. Edward P. Gallogly. Johnson got 81 per cent of the state's votes — his biggest margin in the nation. Democrats captured 17 governorships in the 25 races. Republicans won eight — Kansas, Goldwater wings. But it also was in a position for the normal forces of politics to compel lurching moves toward unity after some skirmishes in the early months ahead. Calls for the resignation of GOP National Chairman Dean Burch, the hand-picked choice ^of Sen. Barry M. ,Goldwater. the defeated presidential candidate, already were being heard. Returns from 98 per cent of the precincts in the nation gave Johnson 41,727.846 votes and Goldwater, 26,197,960. Johnson won election by capturing 44 states and the District of Columbia with 4SS electoral votes. Goldwater won six states with 52 electoral votes — Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina. Surprising'Power The biggest and most pleasant election surprise for the Democrats was the size of their majority in the House. The pulling power of Johnson's coattails was much greater than expected, even surpassing the Franklin D. Roosevelt landslide of 1936. Nearly complete, congressional returns showed the Democrats won 294 seats and the Republicans 140 with Alaskas' lone seat still in doubt. The Democrats added at least 37 se'ats to the majority they won itwo years ago. In the Senate, the Democratic margin was 67 to 32 with a Nevada seat still in doubt. This, meant a net gain of at least one seat in the chamber where first estimates indicated the *cated .that he views the im- size of.the "liberal" bloc hi the (pending drive to strengthen the House may be increased by 25.Party as part of a continuing or more votes in the 89th Congress. , Prospects Look Better This also led to optimism at AFL-CIO headquarters on thejthan we thought. It is not an prospects of passing.such union- effort that we can stop now, supported perennials as health! nor do we have any intention care under Social Security and; of dropping it now," he said.
