Party Chiefs Give Explanations for Democratic Election Sweep NEW YoftK (APVrhe chairmen of the Republican and Democratic national committees today gave the nation's buslneis leaders their explanations of the Democratic sweep in the Nov. 4 elections. Needless to say they disagreed. OOP National Chairman Meade Alcorn blamed his party's poor showing on a combination of factors, mainly on the downturn in employment and general business activity. He contended the Repub-, licans still have the "better product to sell," but "we lack the sales force." II i s Democratic counterpart, Paul M.. Butler, said the Nov. 4 results were a "ringing repudiation of the Eisenhower administration and its failure to provide aggressive, full-time and forward- looking leadership in the areas of economic growth, employment, cost of living, labor legislation, education, defense, human rights and foreign policy." Talk Before Industry Group Alcorn and Butler were invited to give their views before the annual convention of the National Assn. of Manufacturers — the 63rd congress of American industry. In the elections test month, the governments during past years. Republicans lost 13 Senate seats, He said it was significant that no a net of 47 House seats, and a net of § governorships. Among the reasons, Alcorn said, were what he called stepped-up contributions from labor to Democratic candidates, a falling off of Republican contributions, branding of the OOP by the Democrats as the right-to-work party, and failure of the Republicans to present to the people the true aims of their party. Alcorn said his party has come back from worse defeats and will do so again if it is dedicated and determined enough. But he said it can never hope to recapture control of Congress "until we match in money, in manpower and in organization work the efforts now being put forth by the opposition." National Issues Butler said the fact that the Democratic victory was overwhelming and national in scope indicates that national issues were decisive in producing the strong Democratic tide. He attributed Democratic gains to voter confidence in what he called the responsible record of his party in Congress and in state DUG AN'S DAILY Gift Suggestions GOLF SUPPLIES Personalized Balls .... $14.75 doi. ~ ' F S*** $39.95 up Bags ' Shoes • Balls Retreivit Umbrellas • Practice Cups Shop Early • Layaway Now Free Gift Wrapping IAIM HE 3-6190 Democratic senator and only one Democratic representative were defeated for re-election.

Arab Pilgrims to Bethlehem Get Screening JERUSALEM (AP)-An Israeli official today said Arab Christians applying to make the Christmas pilgrimage to Bethlehem are getting a stricter screening this year.

The official would not say how many applications had been refused this year. But he said about 3,500 Christians, most of them Arabs, would be allowed to cross into Old Jerusalem. The applications now are being screened by the Jordan authorities. In past year they have usually refused about 10 per cent as undesirable.

Chatham St. HEmlock 7-2028 Some senators are demanding a rules change to make it easier to end filibusters. Dirksen, who is in line to become the Senate's new Republican leader, said in an Interview that he has changed his mind since he voted in 1957 against opening the Senate's rules to changes. Situation Alerted He now has come to the conclusion, Dirksen said, that Vice President Nixon had "logic on his side" in holding informally then that new rules can be adopted by majority vote at the beginning of each Congress. "A change in the rules is in the wind," Dirksen said. "The situation has been altered since 1957 because the Rules Committee sub sequently has considered the matter and formal reports have been filed. I will support some modifi cation of the present require ments." His change of position lent add ed weight to a drive by Senate liberals to alter the filibuster provision.
