TWO Daltoii Again Wins Virginia Ballot Battle Democrats Retain Assembly Control In State Election By JOHN F. DAFFROV RICHMOND, Va I?—Republicans 're-elected their party's pride-Ted Dalton-to the State senate but failed to make any appreciable inroads on tight Democratic control of the General Assembly m Tuesday's general election. The GOP emerged from the elec- tion~3ust where it went in as far as the 40-member Senate was con cerned, holding onto three seals and failing in tries for three oth ers. Democrats swamped five in dependents in the other Senate con tests. In the House contests the GOP Increased its five-member strength by one on the basis of near com plete returns from Grayson Coun ty- Thus, if the complexion of the usually conservative assembly isj changed, the change will come from, within the Democratic ranks. Several new faces in the Senate , including Stuart B. Carter of Bote-j tourt and Armistead L. BoothCj from the "Young Turk" contin-j gent on the House side, bid fair to; liberalize the more cautious upper, chamber a bit. ; Dalton, in winning his fourth four-year term to the Senate, continues as his party's best hope to capture the office of governor in 1957. He roused the Democrats into an uncomfortable hard stretch drive in 1953 when he ran up about 45 per cent of the vote against Thomas B. Stanley, the Democratic winner. The Radford Republican easily- held onto his Senate seat by defeating R.

Only about a fourth of the assembly's 140 House and Senate seals were contested in the election and the best the minority party could do was grab nine of them.

Curry Carter of Staunton in the 22nd District but yielded 4,035 to 4,876, with only two of the district's 59 precincts not. in. On the House side, the Republicans saw 14 of their candidates go down before the Democratic power. They won three House races and three of their nominees ran unopposed. The GOP candidates .for" the House who escaped Democratic opposition were Dels. Joseph E. Proffitt of Floyd, Dr. C. E. Greear of Scott, and V. S. Shaffer of Shenandoah. Republican incumbent H. Clyde Pearson of Lee won over Democrat W. A. Keith, as did Republican Del. W. Ray Rouse of Smyth over Democratic Brodie Thompson. It was. Dr. J. G.

West Given _( Continued from Page.]) mil conference only three months ago favoring friendly negotiation on the problem of Germany. Kremlin Voice Seen Since Molotov just returned from Moscow, he was believed to be speaking with obvious authority of the Soviet government. He astonished the West yesterday as he indicated there were two kinds of Germany that interest him — a divided Germany or a Communist-dominated Germany. Barring some conciliatory gesture by Molotov to follow up his tough declaration — something-not impossible in view of past Soviet tactics—these conclusions seemed inescapable: l.-The cold war is still on in a big way. 2. The "Spirit of Geneva." born at the summit conference here in July, has collapsed like a balloon. 3 The Soviet stand may strengthen the Atlantic Alliance—contrary to the relaxing effect of the Geneva spirit. 4.

Denney, the Republican candidate, climaxed a political comeback which he started in 195i after losing his $65,000 a year job as high commissioner of professional baseball. ••.. Returns from 2,336 of Kentucky's 4,032 precincts gave: Chandler 305,346; Denney 204,629. The entire Democratic slate ticket, covering eight other top offices, was assured of victo~y.
