Mr. Truman saw In the returns, also, a powerful stimulus on Congress to enact the unfinished portion of his legislative program. "The Democratic platform set cmt certain things which it ts our duty to try to accomplish," he told the . Women's National Democratic Club of Washington. "I want to say to you that the first session of the 81st Congress did a remarkable job, and the second session ,o£ the 81st Congress is going to rto s better one as a re.sult of these elections today."

Each .report raised new cheers and applause from Hie crosvd of cabinet officers, party leaders and club members. . - Fairly early In the vote-counting • of New. York's senatorial race Mr. Truman staked his fame as a political seer, a reputation won In his own stunning victory a year ago.

"-was 317,007 for Republican Incumbent John Paster Dulles and 3M.007 . for former governor Herbert H. Ix:h ..- man. A few minutes later he drew { more cheers with an announcement • that the New York Times and New . Tort; Daily News, "both Dulles supporters,, concede to Lehman and (Mayor William) O'Dwyer." Other Victories ; He read returns indicating clera: ocratio victories in mayoralty races / In Syracuse, Binghamton and Ge; neva, N.Y., and in Louisville, Ky., ' and started his speech with the , words: "It certainly Is a mast happy i i evening." He went on: i "I am exceedingly happy, If the' • New York Times and New York • Daily News are correct, that we have won a victory in Ne\v. York— which',will have a very decided ef- ' feet on the elections'In 1950. : • ""When we win that sort of victory in a year such as this, we as- 'i sums a much greater"responsibility :' from, how on than we have ^had in .' the past year." He referred repeatedly to the Democrats as "the party of the people." He predicted it will achieve ite "two great objectives, the welfare ". and prosperity of the United States of America, and the welfare and prosperity of the world as a whole." Among the party notables present • iras Mrs. Woodrow Wilson. She listened Intently as Mr. Truman made a bid for support of his foreign policy.
