V/EDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1954 BLYTHEVILI3: (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVIN Most Incumbents Victorious As 9 States Hold Primaries By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Republican Sen. Robert W. Upton of New Hampshire was the most notable casualty yesterday as primary warmups in nine states -produced party candidates for the November elections. Otherwise, congressional incumbents weathered this preliminary skirmishing — the biggest batch of primaries this year. Voters in New Hampshire, New leans for Democratic Action, bat- York, Vermont, Massachusetts, j tied it out for the Democratic gu- Wisconsin, Colorado, Utah, Min- Colorado, Utah, nesota and Washington picked nominees for five Senate and 92 House seats, for six governorships and a host of other state and local offices. The vote was reported light in several states. The selection of candidates for the Nov. 2 balloting will be completed later this month with a primary in Rhode Island and conventions in New York State. Upton, 70, was defeated by veteran U.S. Rep. Norris "Cotton, 54, in a three-way race for the GOP nomination to serve the last two years of the late Sen. Charles W. Tobey's six-year term. Running third was Wesley Powell, a 37- year-old attorney who four years ago came close to unseating Tobey in the primary. In recent years, Republican nomination has meant election in New Hampshire. Second Senator Defeated Upton, wno has been serving under appointment since Tobey's death last year, was the second U.S. senator to suffer defeat in a primary test this year. The other was Sen. Alton Lennon (D-NC). Six House incumbents also have been beaten in bids for renomina- tion. In another contest that drew national attention, former Democratic Rep. John A. Carroll, 53, won his party's nomination for the Senate from Colorado. He downed Mayor Quigg Newton of Denver; Carroll formerly was an adviser to President Truman. He will face Lt. Gov. Gordon Allott, who was bernatorial nomination. Proxmire led in early returns. One Opposed Only one of Wisconsin's 10 House members—Republican Rep. Gard ner Withrow—had primary opposi tion and Withrow led two rivals. Utah—Mrs. Reva Beck Bosone red-haired veteran of two House terms, won an easy victory in her quest for the Democratic nomination in Utah's 2nd District and a crack at Republican Rep. William A. Dawson, who unseated her two years ago. Dawson was unopgosec for renomination. Massachusetts—A veteran member of the Bay State Legislature; Robert F. Murphy, won the Democratic nomination for governor in his first try at statewide office. Supported by the State Democratic Convention, Murphy decisively defeated Francis E. Kelly, a Boston lawyer who' has served as lieutenant governor and attorney general. Murphy will face Republican Gov. Christian A. Herter, who was unopposed for renomination. Sen. Leverett Saltonstall had no opposition in the GOP primary and he will be opposed in November by Foster Furcolo, state treasurer and former Congress member, who outran two opponents for the Democratic Senate nomination. Vermont — A comparative newcomer to state politics, Joseph B. Johnson, won the Republican nom- unopposed for the GOP Senate nomination. Sen. Edwin C. Johnson now holds the seat for which Carroll and Allott will vie. Johnson chose to run instead for governor of Colorado and he was unopposed in the Democratic primary. Johnson's opponent Nov. 2 will be State Sen. Donald G. Brotzman, the only candidate in the GOP gubernatorial primary. Other highlights of yesterday's primaries: Wisconsin — Fred R. Zimmerman, 74-year-old foe of Sen. McCarthy, built up a commanding lead in his try for Republican re- nomination as secretary of state. With almost half of the state's precincts reporting, Zimmerman had 77,488 votes to 55,618 for Miss Joyce M. Larkin, a former weekly newspaper publisher who ran with the endorsement of the state GOP organization. Zimmerman has had 10 terms as secretary of state. Gov. Walter Kohler had no opposition for a third GOP primary, but William Proxmire, the unsuccessful Democratic candidate two ination for governor a traditionally solid of Vermont, GOP state. Johnson, a 61-year-old industrialist, will have as his running mate the first woman ever nominated for lieutenant governor in the state's history. She is Mrs. Consuelo Northrop Bailey, speaker of the Vermont House of Representatives. Mrs. Bailey came out on top in a three-cornered fight. Senate Battle New Hampshire — Two men were battling, for the Democratic nomination for the short Senate term. They are Stanley J. Betley, a veteran state representative, and Pickett of slight lead early today. The winner will face Cotton in November. In the Democratic race for nomination to a full Senate term, two of four candidates were bunched closely, with the main battle apparently between 30-yearold Mayor Gerald L. Morin of Laconia and Frank L. Sullivan of Manchester. Sen. Styles Bridges, the Republican incumbent, had no primary apposition. Minnesota — Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn) held a strong lead Mayor Laurence M. Keene. Betley held a over and two Val opponents Bjornson, early today Republican years ago, and James E. Doyle, | state treasurer, seemed well on his co-chairman of the National Amer- way to winning the GOP Senate nomination. Bjornson, too, had two opponents. Republican Gov. C. Elmer Anderson was renominated without a fight. In the Democratic-Farmer- Labor contest for the gubernatorial nomination, Orville Freeman, a Minneapolis lawyer, was outdistancing Paul Rasmussen, a state railroad and warehouse commissioner. New York — Rep. Stuyvesant Wainwright 2nd, a fervent supporter of President Eisenhower, scored a top-heavy renomination victory over Republican William P. Shea, an avowed backer of Sen. McCarthy. Wainwright frequently has criticized the , Wisconsin senator. Three other Republican congressmen who had opposition also were renominated without difficulty. They were Reps. Edmund P. Radwan, Ralph A. Gamble and W, Sterling Cole. Cole is chairman of the Senate-House Atomic Energy Committee. Washington — In a slim turnout, Washington State voters picked nominees for the state's seven congressional seats. Main interest centered on a four-way race for the Republican nomination for congressmen-at-large. There, former State Rep. Al Canwell appeared headed for a runaway, triumph over his three opponents. Democratic Rep. Don Magnuson, the incumbent, was unopposed. Hugh B. Mitchell, a former U. S. senator and House member, won Democratic nomination in the state's 1st District. He topped two opponents. In his comeback try, Mitchell will try to unhorse Rep. Thomas M. Pelly, who was re- nominated without opposition.
