Near Deadlock in Indiana Symbolizes Voters' Split Decision— GOP Defies Off-Year Tradition; Demos Gain State House Muscle WASHINGTON (AP) - R» publicans have defied off -yet election tradition, but Demo crats gained 9baitehouse politics muscle—and the near deadloc of a bitter Senate battle in Ind. ana symbolized today the spli decision returned by America's voters. Democrats called the verdict a defeat for the administration. President Nixon declared his hand has been "enormously strengthened" on defense and foreign policy by changes in the Senate. Republicans managed a midterm gain in the Senate, picking up two seats, with the Indiana outcome still in doubt. With Democrats and Republicans each likely to have the support of one-third parity or independent election victor, the Senate lineup stood ait 54 Democrats, 45 Republicans. It was the fifth time in this century the party of a President has won Senate seats in an off- year election. Democrats posted an eight- seat House gain—smaller than history's patternr-with one race still in doubt. The lineup there: 254 Democrats, 180 Republicans. Most of the gains were in the Midwest. If was the ninth straight election in which Democrats had captured control of both Senate and House. Democrats took over 13 Republican governorships, among them three of the 10 most populous states in the nation—Pen- isylvania, Ohio and Florida. They lost two, Tennessee and Coneoticut, to Republicans. Three states remained in doubt: Maine and Rhode Island, where Democratic incumbents heffid narrow leads, and Michigan, where the Republican governor was ahead. , In Ufiw Indiana Senate race, a focui nA Republican law-and-order campaigning, Democratic Sen. Vance Hartke Iheld a slender and inconclusive lead over Rep. Richard L. Roudebush, a conservative who once was national commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. A recount was likely. Abserv tee ballots were put under guard; voting machines were locked; ballot boxes impounded. Hartke's unofficial margin was 3,690 votes but the Indiana outcome may be in doubt for weeks. ,. In Tenenssee, Rep. William E. Brock II ousted Democratic Sen. Albert Gore, a key administration target; in Connecticut, Rep. Lowell P. Weicker Jr. won a three-way contest for the GOP; in Maryland, Rep. J. Glenn Beall Jr. upset Democratic Sen. Joseph D. Tydings; in Ohio, Rep. Robert Taft Jr. took over a Democratic Senate seat. In Illinois, Adlai E. Stevenson III defeated Republican Sen. Ralph T. Smith; in California, Rep. John V. Tunney trounced GOP Sen. George Murphy. Democrats successfully defended 19 Senate seats, and Sen. Harry F. Byrd, a Democrat, was re-elected as an independent in Virginia. Republicans held seven GOP seats. James L. Buckley, a registered Republican, was elected as a Conservative in New York. Democrats scored significant gains in the less publicized arena of the state legislatures, which will design new congressional districts to match the population figures of the 1970 census. Federal court rulings restrict the gerrymander, the old-fashioned way of shaping a congressional district to guarantee victory for one party. But that doesn 't mean a party in command of a state government cannot draw district boundaries that will favor its congressional candidates. In California, due to gain five House seats, Democrats over. turned Republican majorities in both houses of the legislature. Democrats made legislative gains in Pennsylvania, gained splits in Wisconsin, Utah and, apparently, Illinois. Republican strategists had hoped redisricting, and Nixon's re -election coattails, would give them a good chance at capturing House control in 1972. That prospect has dwindled. Democratic governors will be in charge in at least 27 states. In Maine, Gov. Kenneth M. Curtis was on a ticket led by Sen. Edmund S. Muskie, a landslide victor who had hoped tc prove his coattail strength at part of the buildup to a 1971 presidential campaign. Curtis was narrowly leading James S J Erwin, the Republican attorney ?neral. Erwin requested a re- ount. Muskie won re-election with 2 per cent of the Maine vote. Ie said Wednesday he has not ecided whether to seek the )emocratic presidential nomi- lation—although all the evidence is that he is already doing so. Democratic National Chairman Lawrence F. O'Brien said Muskie is the front-run­ ner for White House nomination, but maintained the Democratic field is wide open. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts, who said after his involvement in the fatal automobile accident on Chappaquiddick Island that he would not run for president in 1972, won re-election in a 63 per cent landslide. Hubert Humphrey rolled up 59 per cent of the Minnesota vote in winning election to return to the Senate. The Democratio gubernatorial victories gave the party a significant base for 1972, an organizational — and financial — starting point for a White House challenge. Rep. Carl Albert of Oklahoma, the House, majority leader who will become speaker in January, said the Democratic I pickup in the House "gave us a shot of confidence. I think we can field a ticket that can win in 1972." "There is a revolt against this administration throughout the heartland of this nation," O'Brien said. "We have done very well," said Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, the Republicans' chief— and controversial—campaigner through much of the season. 10 Timet Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, Nov. 5, 1970 In San Clemente, Calif., Nixon, who waged an off-year campaign unprecedented in its scope, said the Senate outcome was most important to him. He said it means he can "speak with a much stronger voice" in defense and foreign affairs. Nixon did not explain how he calculated what he said was "a working majority of four in the Senate" on those issues. But Agnew had pointed earlier to the election of Lloyd M. Bentsen, a conservative Democrat, to succeed a Democratic liberal in Texas, and to election of Buckley in New York, as evidence of added support on ideological lines. Nixon said he was sending out notes of congratulation and condolence to winners and losers, especially in the 23 states where he campaigned. And, for losers everywhere, Nixon had a word of comfort. He said they will be "stronger men as a result of the loss, if they don't let the losses get them down." Philip Drinker and Louis A. Shaw developed the iron lung at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston in 1928. G-STORE 523 N. Main — Carroll PRICES SLASHED ON HOME AND HOLIDAY NEEDS SAVE UP TO 50% SPECIAL!
