Result Sicnificant WASHINGTON', Sept. 13 (UP) — A Democratic sweep in Maine threw increasing uncertainly today ever the outcome of the 1932 presidential election. Maine has uniformly elected Republican governors In every presi- dcnllal year since the Civil Wir. With returns almost complete Democrats appeared lo have clcct- rd a governor fr.r (he, first time :-incc 1914 and to have won two of the three congressional seals. This exceeded their fondest hopes. One Democratic congressman was about, nil that the Democrats had been expected to get. G. O. r. Tried Hard Although entangled in many local tencs and perajnalilies the Maine election nevertheless held national significance. Both parties threv. r.rst stri.'ig speakers into the state in hr^e numbers. The Republicans closed their campaign with a spwli by the chief administration campaigner, Secretary of Treasury Ogden L. Mills, whcic plea to ir.e voters was confined almost entirely to an appeal to uphold President Hoover. democrats \verc convinced tl'.a.' if the Maine barometer means anv ""n« at nil it points to vlctjrj 'or them in November.
