By MORRIE LANDSBERG SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — No matter where you look in this thousand - mile - long stajA the big fact about the Iflo^lection is that party politics has come back — with a loud bang — to California. There is more noUe largely because more Democratic candidates a T c going into November balloting than ever before. And in a state where "nonpartisanship" was the .successful vogue for years under the primary ' cross-filing system which permits a candidate to seek both party , nominations, candidates are beinu i forced to choose siocs—for ov ' a^amM the Eisenhower administration, for or against state plat- . forms. j "Vole Democratic:!" the bill- j boards urge, playing down the ; ticket ! hyps dump Warren's successor, Republican G o v.

The party resurgence rose out of the results of the June primary lure, 30 scats in Congress and the remaining two years of Vice President Richard M. Nixon's term in the Senate. Party Listed For the first time in 40 years, the primary ballot listed the candidates' political affiliation. And the Democrats, with a 760,000 lead in registration, nominated their first full slate of [he modern era. Most candidates ran on both tickets, however, and Republican incumbents, holding every statewide office except attorney general, entered the fall campaign with a generally heavy advantage in t^e two-party vote, Democratic leaders sny they cjc- pect to pick up three or four seat*, in Congress, perhaps remove Sen.

"There is a real swing to the Democratic party at this moment," says Mrs. Elizabeth Snyder of Los Angeles, new Democratic state chairman. Republicans are not conceding anything. But come arc worried— and saying so—that party apathy may let the Democrats capitalize this, time on their registration edge. The Democrats fftee some prcuy tough figures from the primary. Knight, while losing the Democratic nomination to Grave*,, polled Yoriy's by 640.000. The two Republicans drew heavy Democratic .support, but the two Democrats attracted only a light Republican vote, The primary election brought out 3.184,565, or 56 per cent, of the 5,66-3,688 voters.

(Courier NYus I'luilo) Segregation Forces Triumph in Delaware Nearly 10 per cent of the traffic accident.s arc due .to carciCSfi or Improper slRiials being given by to indicate intention to slop, turn, or slow down. By BILL LOFT US MILFORD, Del. ';?i—Triumphant segregation forces said today the temporary defeat of integration in Milford'.s high school is "the first step toward our ultimate yortl ol making sure that no Negroes attend whito schools in the state." Th'; pro - sogregationsists scored a victory yesterday when a new school board in Miliord announced it wa.s rescinding an order integrating II Negro pupils In the Kith grade of the Lakeview Ave. school "in the best interests ol the pupils in the community." The board's statement did not say whether se»rcg;iU(m v;ns permanent, or only effective for the period until the U.K. Supreme Court hands down its decision on how integration shall be carried out. The president of the Delaware chapter of the National A.ssn, for the Advancement ol Colored Peo-, pie, Wayner P. Jackson, denounced the action as a "shameful, degrading spectacle of our duly consti- tutec' authority fgnominiously surrendering Lo the Illegal actions ot a lawless mob. He said, "We have already begun planning our next legal action." He declined to elaborate. The victory by the pro-segregationists can he attributed to one thing: boycott by white pupils of the .school in which the Negroes were enrolled. The 11 Negroes enrolled on Sept, 7, 1 lor the 10th grade classes. }Ten days later a mass meeting at ; the American Legion hall protested the integration. Afte.' a mass meeting Sept. 20 in the school auditorium the school board was petitioned for the ouster of the 11 Negroes. The board took the pcti- - Don lo the State Board ol Education which said the Milford hoard had a right to enforce integration, but reprimanded it for not consulting with the stale group before carrying out Its program. Tr-e Milford board rc-signed. The I .schools were closed for n week 1 and then reopened last Monday.
