SENATE FACES WASHINGTON (AP) - The, United States Senate appears j headed for its greatest election day upheaval since the Republicans swept mto control in 1946. Unlike the election 22 years; ago, however, neither Republican nor Democratic strategists expect any sweep that would boast the GOP into numerical dominance of a Senate now divided 63-37 in" favor of the Democrats. But the infusion of new faces and new ideas could be even greater than the post-World War II turnover which saw 18 members, including many veterans, vacate their seats in balloting; th-it fravo tho CAP a not crai.ii if' 11. j in 1948 sucn nationally known Talley; J.
