12C -June 9. 1974 Sunday Gazette-Mail West Virginia Vote Score: Democrats 5, GOP 1 By Dave Goldberg The Associated Prese Six times in this second year of Watergate, voters have elected congressmen in normally Republican districts and f i v e times t h e y have elected Democrats. The Republicans who are trying again say this time they'll stay independent of the White House. "There would be no useful purpose in inviting him back now." says James Sparling, who invited President Nixon to campaign with him last spring in a Michigan congressional district that Republicans normally win but which Sparling lost to Democrat Bob A COLLEGE EDUCATION?

Four of the five Republican losers are running again in November and so is the one winner, Rep. Robert Lagomarsino of California. None want any help from the White House and most say they'd be happier if Watergate would just go away. But all are planning their campaigns on the assumption it won't. "It would be helpful, yes," Sparling says when asked if he would prefer Vice President Gerald R. Ford to Nixon as President. "I really don't know what may happen regarding Watergate, a lot could happen. I'm hopeful things will be cleared up by then." says Harry Fox, who lost to Democrat John P. Murtha in a^western Pennsylvania race to fill a seat vacated by the death of Republican Rep. John P. Saylor. Ford visited the district on Fox's behalf. But Fox adds: "I hope it won't be necessary to seek help from national fiures. I think they are ging to be busy enough handling the affairs of state and this will be a local election between Mr. Murtha and myself." * * * HERE is a rundown on the other four districts: "·Michigan 5th: Democrat Richard Vander Veen defeated Republican Robert Vander Laan in a special election to fill the seat Ford vacated when he was appointed Vice President. Vander Laan has decided to run for re-election to the Michigan State Senate and the Republican candidate this fall is expected to be Paul Goebel Sr., an insurance man and Kent County Commissioner. ·-Ohio 1st: Willis D. Gradison, a former Cincinnati city councilman lost to Democrat Thomas Luken for the seat left vacant when Leo William Keating resigned to become publisher of the Cincinnatti Enquirer. The district had gone Democratic prevously only in years when there were national Democratic landslides. There will be a rematch in November. Gradison, who had a number of national Republicans -liberals and conservatives -campaigning for him says he will campaign as he did last March, attempting to convince voters he is an individual. Asked if he will do any- thing differently, he replies: "Yeah, win." ^-California 13th: Lagomarsino defeated a field of seven Democrats and avoided a runoff by getting 53 per cent of the vote. But his predecessor, the late Rep. Charles Teague carried the district in 1972 with more than 70 per cent of the vote, and he will be forced to run in a district that has been reapportioned to include more Democrats. James Loebl, the top Democratic vote getter, will be Lag- marsino's opponent in Nov- embber. Loebl has tried to characterize Lagomarsino as a Republican loyalist like former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell and former White House aides H.R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman. "People know I'm not that way," Lagomarsino says. "They trust me." ^-California 6th: John Burton, a Democratic state assemblyman, was elected last Tuesday by getting a bare majority of 50 per cent over the combined vote of seven rivals. Burton, whose brother Phillip represents a neighboring district, will fill the seat vacated by Republican William Maillard, who was appointed by Nixon as the ambassador to the Organization of American States. Burton will run again in November in a reapportioned 6th District, which will include more Democratic voters. His opponent will be Thomas Caylor, a Republican who ran a distant second. The district includes part of San Francisco and Marin County, across the bay.
