PAGE TWO BLYTHEVTTXE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Monroney Leads Vote In Oklahoma Primary For Senatorial Post BT DAYTON BLAIR OKLAHOMA CITY, July 5. </Tt —Incumbent Elmer Thomas trailed Hep." Mike Monroney by more than 5,000 votes today as tabulation of yesterday's Democratic senatorial primary election neared completion. A run-off election July 25 was assured by the other five Democratic candidates who had more than 25,000 voted among them. Returns from 3,116 of 3.786 precincts gave: Monroney 155,436, Thomas 149,965.- Johnston Murray, who hopes to win the governor's office once held by his father, held a wirle lead over his three democratic opponents but lacked the clear majority to avoid a runoff. Coe Runs Second Murray, in returns from 3,011 precincts, had 177,436 rotes to a combined total of 188,030 for his foes. William O. Coc. Oklahoma city attorney, was second man. Former Oov. William H. (Alfalfa Bill) Murray, father of this year's candidate, stayed at his son's headquarters until returns proved the younger Murray was definitely ahead. See-Saw Race The see-saw race between Moti- roney, fifth district Congressman for six terms and Thomas, climaxed one of Oklahoma's hottest races since the late President Roosevelt came here In Thomas' behalf in the 1938 election. Farm support prices and public power policies were the major issues. However, the minority Republican party furnished its share of the headlines. The Fourth of July election—first In Oklahoma's history—produced an average primary turnout at about 350,000 voters. GOP Nomination Swrrp The Rev. Bill Alexander, who first announced as a Democratic candidate for senator, then switched parties, swept the GOP nomination. Alexander gave the Republican!, who seldom see a real primary scrap, a hard campaign, television shows and an election eve party that had everything from a choir to a cowboy band. Hli principal opponent was long-time newspaper- mail Raymond H. Fields. Thomas has at stake * national political career spanning 28 years. At his age. 13, the white-haired senator would probably step out of politics if he lost. Thomas served two terms In the House before his election to the Senate In 192«. Speculation on Senate Speculation on the uncounted Senate voles was difficult because large blocks still remained out In both Oklahoma and Tulsa counties the biggest in' the stale. Other uncounted totals were scattered throughout the slate. Monroney trailed early In the counting but pulled ahead about midway of tabulating. He led in both of the largest counties despite the fact that Tulsa County had been counted n Thomas stronghold. During the heated campaign, Thomas charged Monroney had voted for CO per cent parity with Monroney retorting he supported SO per cent parity. House Speaker Sam Raybum (D- Tex) and Hep. Albert Gore (D- Tenn) joined in the campaign to help their fellow house member. Bus Drivers Strike Halts Moves Of 800,000 in New York Area BUFFALO. N. Y., July 5.
