Legislature— Stokes Wins in Cleveland; Scores Gains WASHINGTON (AP) - Cleveland Democrat Carl B. Stokes has become the first Negro elected mayor of a major American city, but Republicans claimed a pattern of victory and an omen for 1968 today in off- year elections which gave the GOP Kentucky's governorship and New Jersey's legislature. Another Negro Democrat, Richard G. Hatcher, came out of the mayoral ballot counting in Gary, Ind., with a margin of 1,495 but his white opponent, Joseph Radigan, charged fraud and certification of the result was held up. In another race-tinged contest for mayor, Boston voters rejected the backlash-oriented campaign of Louise Day Hicks. In Gary as in Cleveland, the mathematics of race was the crucial factor. And the issue of Negro-white balance in the public schools was a key question in Boston, where Secretary of State Kevin H. White was elected mayor in a nonpartisan run-off. Republican National Chairman Ray C. Bliss saw in the election returns evidence "that the upsurge in Republican strength which began in 1966 is continuing." Democratic Chairman John M. Bailey said he discerned no trend at all. Democrats reclaimed the mayor's office in Baltimore, and held Philadelphia's City Hall despite internal discord and a stern GOP challenge. On the GOP balance sheet, the Kentucky victory of Louie B. Nunn, rated something of an upset, put Republicans in charge in 26 of the 50 U.S. governor's offices. The states in the GOP column now represent 304 electoral votes, 34 more than the number needed to elect a president in 1968. In Tuesday's only other gu- bernatorial, race, Rep. John Bell Williams, a Democrat, predictably triumphed in a Mississippi landslide. The off-year contests were scattered from New England to San Francisco, marked in many spots by the racial issue, and touched—Republicans said—by the standing of President Johnson and by the war in Vietnam. Nunn, elected Kentucky's firsl Republican governor in 24 years, had aimed his campaign —NEA Telephoto Beaten by Intruders- investigation by San Francisco State College authorities is under way into the invasion of the student .newspaper office by 12 Negroes.

John Mackey, the project director, said the Indian program hasn't received approval as yet from Office of Economic Opportunity officials in Washington, but they have expressed considerable interest in it. Mackey, himself a Santee Sioux Indian, said other states also are interested in any trail blazing Iowa can do in combating alcoholism among the red men. Incidence of alcoholism runs higher among Indians than in almost any other ethnic group, Mackey explains. The ICAP plans to center its Indian program in Sioux City and Tama. Sioux City gets a lot of Indians from the Sioux reservations in South Dakota and the Omaha - Winnebago reservation in Nebraska, and Tama has the Mesquakie Indian lands nearby Mackey said about 50 per cen of all arrests in Sioux City are for intoxication, and about hal of those arrested for drunken ness are Indians. The figures are about the same in Tama.

Writer) DES MOINES — Tax Commission Chairman Earl Burrows has some second thoughts on a new state law which says alj real estate s h a 11 be assessed at 27 per cent of "fair and reasonable market value." Burrows had joined with Commissioners X. T. Prentis and Lynn Potter in ruling that assessors shall use "no one factor" as the sole crite- Late News Off AP Wire DES MOINES (AP) - Gov. Harold Hughes Wednesday called for a halt to the practice bf providing free'lists of licensed drivers and motor vehicle owners for companies that send unsolicited mail. Hughes said he will make his "strong objections" known to Public Safety Commissioner Jack Fulton, whose department has been cooperating with firms that are selling the lists to advertising houses. "I will do all I can to stop it," Hughes said. The governor said the state should neither give nor sell any list of names to be used strictly for commercial purposes. NEGRO CERTIFIED— GARY, Ind.

Republican the defeated went into conference with lawyers and said he would announce a decision later whether to challenge the results. The certification by the Lake County Election Board showed Hatcher the winner by 1,389 votes. The board is headed by John Krupa, Lake County Election Board head and also Democratic county chairman, who refused to support Hatcher. U.N. CONSULTATION- UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — The U.N. Security Council, already divided over rival proposals for a Middle East settlement, consulted today on Egyptian demands that it deal with Israel's refusal to withdraw from territory it occupied in the June war. Delegates expressed beliel that the 15-nation council would take up the Egyptian request Thursday. On e diplomat charged privately that Egypt was exerting a "disruptive influence" in calling at this stage for debate on territory that Israel seized from Egypt, Jordan and Syria last June. SATURN COUNTDOWN- CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) — The countdown proceeded smoothly today toward Thursday' planned launching of the Saturn 5 super rocket, but the weatherman injected a disquieting note with a forecast of marginal wind conditions. The weather forecast for the scheduled 7 a.m. EST liftoff time called for winds of 21 miles an hour with gusts up to 29 miles per hour.

A Walkout by 24,000 at Chrysler DETROIT (AP) — More than 24,000 Chrysler Corp, workers umped the gun today on a midnight strike deadline, closing down nearly a quarter of the Vo. 3 automaker's operations. The walkouts at eight plants came as bargainers for the company and the United Auto Workers Union passed the 24-hour mark in a marathon attempt to write a new three-year contract jefore the deadline. The mushrooming stoppages raised the possibility more of Chrysler's 103,000 UAW members would go out during the day even if. quick agreement is reached and that Chrysler was likely to suffer substantial production loss. Once agreement is reached on the national contract, local agreements must be written for 131 bargaining units at Chrysler's 17 plants in 12 states. More than 100 of these remain to be settled. A midmorning check by company officials showed workers •actually walked off the job. Another 6,000 at the Jefferson assembly plant in Detroit were idled by a parts shortage because 600 truckers hauling the parts refused to work. There were no indication from the bargaining table as to what progress had been made in the session that started at 10 a.m. Tuesday. Prince Says Reds Won't Free Fliers PHNOM PENH, Cambodi (AP) — Prince Norodom Sihan ouk disclosed today he told Mrs John F. Kennedy that Nortt Vietnam could not release th American fliers it holds prison er "because it would be an en couragement to continue th bombing." "They also consider the pi lots as war criminals," Cambodia's ruling prince told a news conference after Mrs. Kennedy flew to Thailand. The prince, whose govern ment maintains close ties wit' North Vietnam and the Vie Cong, said Mrs. Kennedy hai brought up the subject of Amer ican prisoners and inquired par ticularly about American air men held in North Vietnam am about Donald Ramsey, an All official captured in South Viet nam almost two years ago. Sev eral Americans taken by th Viet Cong have been release' through Cambodia in the past. Mrs. Kennedy, looking a bi tired after her six-day stay ir Cambodia, returned to Bangko aboard a U.S. Air Force plan escorted to the Thai border b; two Soviet-built Cambodia: MIGs. After three days of socia functions, sightseeing and shop ping, she and her party leav for home early Saturday.

But in San Francisco, where the electorate had a chance to speak directly on the war issue, a baftot proposition urging a cease fire and U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam went down to resounding defeat. With 1,000 of 1,341 precincts counted, there were 96,140 votes against U.S. withdrawal from the Asian war, 55,051 in favor of the proposition. Mayors were elected in scores of U.S. cities, but in many instances, shifts in party control of the office on one city were balanced by reverse switches in another. Republicans took particular delight in one victory: The upset triumph of Ann Uccello, who ousted incumbent Democrat George B. Kinsella to become mayor of Hartford, Conn.—the home town of Democratic chairman Bailey; Bliss pointed as well to New Jersey, where Republicans took firm command of a legislature now Democratic by a 2 to 1 margin. The state Deiriocratic chairman said it appeared Republicans would have an edge of more than 3 to 1 in the Senate and nearly as much in the Assembly. "The campaign in New Jersey was run on the national issue 'why wait until 68,' and the results are very significant," Bliss • said. Sen. Clifford P. Case, R-N.J., had said a Democratic victory would be deemed by the White House an endorsement of its Vietnam policy. Democratic Gov. Richard J. Hughes denied that claim and state analysts generally held the outcome to be the product of local and state issues. "This is another victory from the bottom up," Bliss said, "upon which the resurgent strength of the party is based." "The only thing that is clear," Bailey countered, "is that no particular national trend is discernible now."
