By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (J) -- The sions of five Republican senators not to run again have tipped the odds strongly in favor of strengthened Democratic control of the Senate in next year's elections. Retirement announcements by GOP Senators Jenner of Indiana, H. Alexander Smith of New Jersey, Knowland of California, Payne of Maine and Edward Martin of Pennsylvania left some gaping holes for Republican campaigners to fill. Outnumbered 30-46 by Democrats in the Senate, the Republicans faced an uphill battle even before these five announced they would not seek re-election. Tossup Rac«s The net effect of these an- nouncments has been to add New Jersey, California and Pennsylvania to the list of tossup senatorial races. Payne may reconsider in Maine. If he does not. Democratic Gov. Edmund S. Muskie would be regarded as likely to give any other Republican a hard time, provided he ran. Indiana Republicans, although split, seem confident they won't lose a Senate seat despite the unexpected decision by Jenner to bow out. If Jenner quits before his term ends. GOP Gov. Harold W. Handley might wind up in the Senate with the expectation of running in 1958 for a full six-year term. May Fact Battto GOP Gov. Goodwin J. Knight, crowded out of the race for reelection by Knowland. had expected to get the California Republican senatorial nomination with little or no opposition. But it now looks as though he faces a bitter battle in the primary next June, despite the withdrawal of at least one of his prospective opponents.! Two announced GOP senatorial! i candidates in New Jersey are Bernard Stanley, former appoint- ^ ments secretary to President Eisenhower, and Rep. Kean. Martin's proposed retirement in Pennsylvania has not yet brought forth any outstanding GOP candidate to replace him. There will be 20 Republican Senate seats at stake in 1958 and only 12 held by the Democrats. Of the 12, five in the South are certain to return Democrats. In six other states, Democrats are well entrenched and would be considered the favorites in re-election contests-. t Seats Insecure Only in Wisconsin does the Democratic hold look tenuous. The incumbent there is Sen. Proxmire, who was elected last summer to fill out the unexpired term of the late Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis). On the other hand, eight Republican seats now do not look too secure. Besides the contests in California, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Democrats will be going all out in attempts to unseat Republicans in Arizona, Maryland, New York, Michigan and West Virginia. U. 8. Electronic* Industry R*ady For Spac* Ag« NEW YORK (ft - The nation's electronics industry Is equipped and ready to meet the challenge of the space age. David Sarnoff,, board chairman of the Radio Corp. of America, has declared in a yearend statement. The United States, *he said, leads the world in electronic research, engineering and production. The primary task, now that earth satellites and missiles are a reality, Sarnoff said, is to retain leadership in electronics and regain leadership in those fields where the advantage may teve been temporarily lost. He said electronics has grown to fifth place among American industries with a 1957 volume of about 12 billion dollars. He predicted it would double within 10 years. He reported RCA had topped the billion-dollar mark for the third successive year. Its volume would be about $1,180,000,000, an increase of 5 per cent over 1956, he said. "While profits for the first nine months of 1957 showed a smell increase over the previous year," he reported, "softening of general economic conditions in the fourth- quarter and the highly competitive situation in the Radio-TV industry now indicate that profits for the full year will be slightly below 1956. "Based on present indications, we believe in 1958 the total volume of the electronics industry will exceed the 1957 volume." , to. 27,1IS7 3 - Day* · 3 NOW! hi t JAMES DEAN PLAYS HIMSELF Chesterton Youth In Charge of Local Adventist*' Program The ninth in a series of meetings for the public will be sponsored by the young people this Sunday night at the Valparaiso Seventh-day Adventist church, 206 Wayne street.
