This will just about wind up selection of candidates to run in the Nov. 2 elections for control of the next Congress. New York State conventions and Rh ode Island primaries later this month will con-elude the' preliminaries. But it was the Maine election—*traditionally held two months bt fore those in the other 47 states— that attracted most of the politica attention. Edmund S. Muskie, 39-year-ol Democratic National Committee man, oused GOP Gov. Burton Iv Cross in voting which Vice Pres: dent Nixon had described in ac vance as "the first statewide tes of the Eisenhower administratio program."

Fullam, a political newcome and Colby College history profes sor, by 132,618 votes, to 93,350 in 580 precincts. With her election to a second term assured, Mrs Smitl. said she hopes her triumph "will give impetus -to a nationa trend in November for the election of a Republican Congress for Pres ident Eisenhower." Most incumbents seeking renom inations today were unchallenged But there were scraps for the Re public nomination for a two-year Senate term in New Hampshire Democratic Senate races in Colo rado and Massachusetts, and Dem ocratic governor contests in Wis consin and Massachusetts.
