Wallace's decision to head third party Injected new uncer-- | alnies Into races today and may, tart some Democrats running away rom his endorsement. In Congress, there wa» a belief hat a Wallace endorsement would have dixerse effects in various :ongressional and senaloral primar- es and elections. It wa» suggested Ihal It might prove to be a "kiM, of death" in some close contests but meaningless of beneficial In others. Wallace has given no clear indication as to how his new party will operale In those contests. He told news confrenc* Monday nlsht that U would support "Liberal" candidates without regard to party affiliation. He named Rep. Adolph J. Sabath, D., Ill as one who would be endorsed. He also revealed that tlie party may have its own candidates in .some districts or slates. Sen. John J. Sparkman. D., Ala., who Insists that Ihe Wallace candidacy for president will have no effect on the outcome of the presidential election, said a Wallace endorsement would have differing effects.

That 1 taint now will shift to the Wallace t Party, he snid, and help the Democ- i rats recover middle-of-the road ' voters. The Wallace party can send some of its own members to Congress if It matches the success of Ihe Bull Moose Party of 1912.
