WASH1NTON, (Si — Democrats outvoted. Republican; by more than I 3 ; million In Tuesday's election with the usual big assist from the South. Excluding Democratic Dixie, the parly division reflects more clearly the dramatic tightness of the struggle for control of Congress — a struggle In which a shift of a few thousand cotes either way in key spots could have swung it to the OOP or given the Democrats more solid majorities m Senate and House. For the Democrats rolled up only about 311.000 more votes than] the Republicans outside Ihe South, i Thai's on the basis of incomplete •. unofficial returns compiled by 'Hie j Associated Press. They show that: Nationally, the Democrats harvested 21.843.611 votes, the Republicans 20.099.328 for a total of 41.949.139 and a Democratic edge of 1,750,483. Outside the South, the Democrats drew 19,823.519 votes, the Republicans 19.451,674 — n difference of 370,845 in a t'lal of 39,276.193, Ballots still uncounted wouldn't change the picture much in Northern, Midwestern and Western stales where the tally Is fairly complete. In the South, the official count undoubtedly will pile up an even heavier voting margin for the Democrats .Many southern areas, where Republican candidates run largely for exercise or not at all, don't bother about completing an unofficial tally In advance of the official count. Among the 11 Southern Slates, 4 senators, 4 governors and 67 House members hud no opponents in the. election. The unofficial tabulations show that so far W.IWI.'JOI votes have been counted throughout the conn- try—a bit -short of the record 4'-.463.082 established for a uonprcsl- demlal election year in 1950. The figure of 42 million plus lor 1954 is built up from the highest votes cast in the individual states. In some state.s it \vns for governor. In others it was for senator or Hous amendn reyntioi for mil 1 members. In Georgia and a it was on constitutional ems involving school scg- . The total also omits votes or parly candidate. 1 ;.

Company clerk in Headquarters Congress of Soviet Writers May Show Who's Winning Race for Power in the Kremlin By KUDV G1LMORE LONDON I/BA Congress of Soviet writers to be held soon promises to shed light on who's winning the race for power in the Kremlin —Malenkov or Khrushchev. The Soviet Union's fights for power are staged behind closed doors, but the noise of the struggle nearly always reaches the streets and shows itself in some form of Soviet life. Literature provides one key, for what the people read—and what they don't read—is of paramount importance and is personally handled by the nation's leaders. The coming congress should show whether the liberalism that followed Stalin's death has itself been replaced by a return to the harsh censorship under which Russian writers have worked for so long. Georgl Malenkov. the present premier, was credited with a new look in Soviet letters. Speakers at a meeting of the board of the writers union held in October 1953 practically acclaimed him. Within the last six months, however, there have been strong signs that the Communist party's iron grip over the writers has lightened again. If Marilyn Said 'Recovering Nicely' HOLLYWOOD Ifl — Marilyn Monroe's doctor says she is "recovering nicely" from minor corrective surgery. She is expected to be hospitalized four days after yesterday's operation. Joe DIMaggio, divorced by the actress two weeks ago, spent several hours at the hospital after the Safer 'Shock' Treatment Apparatus Devised ST. LOUIS I* — Development of safer "electric shock" treatment apparatus, and of safer "muscle softening drugs" have made it possible to give beneficial shook treatments to mentally-ill oldsters once deemed too "fragile" for the procedure. This was reported today to the Southern Medical Assot:iation's 48th annual meeting by Dr. James Ward and Dr. James A. Becton of Hill Crest Sanitarium, Birmingham. Ala. operation. He told a newsmim: "She's looking wonderful but I guess she's having kind oi a rough time." Asked about a possible reconciliation, DiMaggio said: "I'd rather not talk about that, but we're still very good friends." Miss Monroe also has said they are still friends but there has been no indication of a reconciliation. STOP SIMPLE DIARRHEA Gel Fast, Soothing Relief with PERCY MEDICINE it has, Nikita Khrushchev, first secretary of the party, may be re- spoasible. Aflcr the October writers' gathering, strange thing began happening. Writers long discredited became popular again. Zorin wrote "The Guests." which pictured a Soviet otficml as a bully. Pauferov showed a high party official as n drunkard. Ilyti Ehreuburg chronicled the troubles of Soviet writers of the Stalin era under the aud cious title, "The Thaw." Last June a sharp reaction sel in. Fanferov lost his job as editor. Tvartlovsky \va_s denounced lor improper criticism. Zorin got a barrage of abuse from Pravda. The playwrights Virta and Surov, who'd been praised a few months before, were expelled from the writers union for petty bourgeois licentiousness. Krushchev seemed to have prevailed over Malenkov.

KRAYSBR Scars Sales Representative No. 12 in a series of RABE CREATURESI THE LOOKLESS OOI he likes to keep up with the times-last year's The LOOKI.F.SS OOF is a retailer married to last year's business — to last year's stock, last year's ideas, last year's problems. He can't see an opportunity two inches away, and wouldn't know a trend from a banana. What he has learned from experience is what to do in case the past should ever return. Fortunately the OOF is a rare creature. Most retailers know that selling means keeping in tune with the times. They're sensitive to changes in customer preferences, and re-slock their shelves accordingly. They're quick !o take advantage of manufacturers' newspaper advcrlising-by featuring the product in their own store displays . . . and by including the brand in their own newspaper ads. Since they themselves advertise in newspapers, they know that any manufacturer who docs the same is really in earnest — and really is out to win the market. A modern retailer knows that the best advertising is the kind that reaches all his customers. And he likes the manufacturer who thinks the same. All, business is local.. . and so are all newspapers!
