TOTSDAT, MAY 2«, 1955 BLYTHKVIT.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TAG'S Probe of New Mexico's Contested Senate Race To Begin Tomorrow ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The U. S. Senate Wednesday starts a lirst-hand probe into New Mexico's 1853 senatorial election. registration records until ordered otherwise by his court. The three clerks—and ArledRe— have been served Senate subpoenas, directing them to turn over the records. Arlcdge was directed by the Senate to appear Wednesday morning to turn over keys held by him to the stale ballot boxes in Ihree counties. Arledge has declined to say whether he will make the directed appearance, or subject himself to a possible Senate contempt citation. The clerks face similar citations i! they do not relinquish records and possible contempt citations by Arledge if they do. Members of the subcommittee expected to arrive late Tuesday for the showdown are Sen. Frank Barrett (R-Wyo), chairman; and Sen. Charles Potter (B-Mich) and Sen. John Hennings (D-Mo). They are scheduled to leave Washington by plane today. Three members of a Senate elections subcommittee will open—if legal snarls permit—a giant recount of almost a quarter of a million votes cast by New Mexicans last November. The seat held by Sen. Dennis Chavez (D-NM) is the issue in the tilicount, which follows a several r*iVonths investigation by a Rlafl representing Ihe subcommittee. Chavez was certified the victor in the senatorial race by slightly more than 5,000 votes. The loser was Patrick J. Hurley, soldier, slates- man and diplomat making his third bid for the Senate. Hurley filed a contest with the Senate, alleging widespread election irregularities. Three New Mexico county clerks face certain legal trouble at the outset of the recount effort.
