SHANNON WHITE PLAINS- The surprising especially to Republican Democratic upsurge Westchester in Tuesday's voting has leaders of both parties trying to find the answers to a number of questions. Was it just the appeal of Sen. John F.

Kennedy that wilted away Republican majorities by more than two-thirds? Is the political complexion of Westchester changing? If so it because of the tiiou- sands of recent new residents? And even more important, is it a developing trend or just an incidental change? Republican leaders are inclined to contend that it was alw really obvious that Vice President Nixon just does not attract voters basic I as did President Eisenhower. The Democratic top men conceed that Kennedy was a more attractive candidate in Westchester than was Adlai Stevenson, despite the many fervent supporters of Stevenson here. Others as Well But, say the Democrats, it was not just Kennedy who established new high vote totals in the county, but all of the other party candidates, even though they failed, as did Kennedy, to carry Westchester. The Republicans fake some comfort from the fact that the result was virtually the same in Truck Rams Porch; Driver Dies At Wheel Stocks Lifted In Big Volume NEW YORK (UPI)-Stocks jammed through a rapid gain in the noon averages today as Wall Street handed the new Democratic administration a temporary verdict of "not guilty." It was apparent that the financial community had taken the Kennedy victory in stride as a result of one major question posed by the election results. In the face of such a narrow victory, how can the new president get through the "liberal" program he proposed during the campaign? The apparent answer, as determined by Wall Street consensus, is that nothing too drastic can come out of the new administration and this would seem to account for the rally now pushing substantially into some' heavy "technical" resistance.

Republican county," and in other parts of the suburban areas. The Democrats are convinced that Westchester's political complexion is changing, although the Republicans stoutly maintain that the county will continue to choose its candidates.

In recent years both parties have been trying to obtain an accurate assessment of the voting inclinations of newcomers. The is still in doubt. Some surveys indicate that In the past most of those who moved from New York City lined up with the Republicans at more from a desire fo be with the majority and their neighbors than irom any change in ideology. New Theory Crops Up More recently, however, there have been signs that this is no longer as prevalent as it was. Democratic successes in local elections seem to have made the party more popular.

The latest theory is that new residents who buy homes are more likely toi align With the GOP, while who move into the many new apartment houses continue theiX affiliation with the Democrats. Historically a change in pclitical domination would not be a novelty in Westchester. In the national e)ections from 1836 through 1892 the county, with one exception, was in the Democratic column. Even the now revered Abraham Lincoln lost in Westchester. Since 1896 the Republicans have been on in the 1912 Bull Moose four years in the Eisenhower sweep the Democrats hit the bottom, getting only some 28 per cent of the vote.

On Tuesday they bettered 44 per cent. The fact that all of their candidates ran far ahead of previous vote totals encourages the Democrats to feel that they are at last "on the way." The Republicans disagree completely and insist Westchester wll long remain true to the GOP.

Ga. (JP) President Eisenhower offered today to meet with President-elect John F. Kennedy "at any mutually convenient time" to arrange an orderly transfer of governmental power. The President also said would welcome meetings between designated Kennedy representatives and those of the Eisenhower administration, particularly Secretary of State Christian A. Herter.

Eisenhower sent the message yesterday in a telegram to Kennedy at his Hyannis Port, headquarters. Press secretary James C. Hagerty made it public this morning after an expected Kennedy reply had not ari-ived in time to be released simultaneously with the President's wire. Delay's Reason a Mystery Hagerty said he had told Pierre Salinger, Kennedy's press repre- Bentative. in a telephone conversation this morning that he was going ahead with his plan to make public the President's message.

Hagerty said he did not know the reason for Kennedy's delay. In urging advance consultation on foreign policy, Eisenhower told Kennedy: "The secretary of states will be prepared for meetings to provide information on foreign policy activities on which there will be special need for continuity after you shall have had the opportunity, after inauguration, to arrange these matters to your satisfaction." Oooperation Ordered Eisenhower already has ed his 10-man team of Cabinet of? Disappointed, Undaunted THE WEATHER ficers, plus the heads of 20 key agencies, to cooperate with Kennedy's official staff. His instruction includes allowing Kennedy representatives to listen in as observers during secret Eisenhower administration discussions. In the 71 days remaining before Kennedy becomes president, how ever, his men will not join in policy making. Hagerty said Eisenhower intends to remain fully responsible for all decisions until the moment Kennedy is sworn in.

Kennedy. Moscow waSi friendly, Peiping hostile. While most of the Free World looked to the U.S. president-elect for dynamic new leadership, Soviet Premier Khrushchev fired off a congratulatory telegram to Kennedy declaring readiness ior "most freindly relations" and por- posing negotiations on disarmament, Germany and other cold war issues.

Khrushchev, who blamed President Eisenhower for the U2 incident and collapse of the Paris summit, said he hoped Soviet- American relations "will again follow the line along which they were developing in Franklin Roosevelt's time. Red China's official New China news agency, however, described the president-elect as a member of one of America's richest families and called him an advocate of military spending and war arations. The comment made clear the election has not altered ing's hate-America policy. Argument Reflected The differing Red reactions re fleeted the Moscow-Peiping argument over peaceful coexistence with Khrushchev holding that war is not inveitable because communism can triumph by peaceful competition, and the Red Chinese arguing that "just wars" are inevitable as long as capitalism exists. Khrushchev's telegram no hint of yielding in Moscow's sition on world issues, however.

Japanese Prime Minister Hayatd Ikeda in a talk with newsmecs warned against "the Communists' usual way of exploiting a in administration. Moscow's Pravda, the commtl? nist party newspaper, claimed American voters had rejected 'Vke President Richard M. cause Republican policy had nol conformed to "the interests of sale4 guarding peace."

"I voted for Vice President Nixon this time and was very disappointed he lost." she said. "Now I'm looking forward to 1964 and the next Presidential race; I'll vote Republican then too."

John F. Kennedy held 300 electoral votes today as he prepared to take over the presidency 71 Says hence. With counting continuing in California and Alaska, Kennedy had captufed 22 states with 30O electoral votes 31 more than th needed 269. Vice President Ric'-- ard M. Nixon took control in states with 188 votes.

Eight elec tors in Mississippi and six in Ala bama were not committed. But in the popular vote, Kennedy held a margin of less than 325,000 votes in a tally of more than 66 million for the majo. party candidates. With returns yet to come an: tallies for minor parties, it appeared that Kennedy's presidential victory rhight come on less than a majority of the "popular vote cast. His 50.2 per cent of the popular vote made it the tightest election since the first Benjamin Hanison- Grover Cleveland race in 1888.

Republican Harrison won an electoral victory then while running mor- than 100,000 behind in populf votes. Foreseeing a "difficult an challenging" period during tl-. next four years, Kennedy said yez terday that "there is agreement by all our citizens tha; a supreme natiotial effort is ed to move tliis coimty through th? 1960s. "All of our energies will be devoted to the interests of States and the cause of freedom around the world." Working with him will be a Democratic-controlled Congress i i which, however, Republicans wiii show some gains. Tuesday's election provided Senate makeup of 64 Democrr and 36 Republicans to replace the 66-34 division of the present Ser, ate.

With tabulations in five races incomplete, the Democra' had elected 257 members and the Republicans 175. The old includitig vacancies, was 233-15'. The Republicans had gained seats. But the Democrats registered net gain of one among state gov- their statehouse to tal to 34 their highest sinco 1938. Of the 27 state posts at stak, Democrats won 15 and the Repu 'i licans 12, with political change taking place in 13 states.

Six in cumbents were defeated. Kennedy will need to designa', soon the man he expects to ste ,3 into the shoes of Christian A. Herter as secretary of state. Among those mentioned for this role are Adlai E. Stevenson, Rep.

Chester Bowls of Connecticut, Chairman J. William Fulbright, of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and the former New York governon, W. Averill Harriman. Kennedy will have to decide whether to go himself or send an agent to the mid-December NATO meeting in Paris. Herter, and possibly Eisenhower, will attend.

It is considered likely that Robert Kennedy, the president-elect's brother, will fill a top advisory post in the new administration.
