SAVE ON SUMMER NEEDS SHOP WARDS SALE BOOK L J Incumbents Take Leads as 5 States Hold Primary Elections By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Members of the Congress appear to continue leading charmed political lives at the polls this year as the count of yesterday's primaries in five states gave leads to all incumbents seeking renomination. A hard-fought race holding nationwide attention saw Sen. John J. Sparkman (D-Ala) sweep to an apparent victory in his bid for re- nomination. A primary triumph would be tantamount to election in the heavily Democratic state. And in an important Ohio contest, Rep. George H. Bender won the Republican Senate nomination. The Alabama campaign featured a charge by Sparkman's closest opponent—Rep. Laurie C. Battle— that he was trying to carry "water on both shoulders" on the race question. Sparkman, vice presidential candidate on the 1952 Democratic national ticket, denied he ever had varied on the issue. He faced in the four-man race one of his strongest challenges since he entered the Senate eight years ago. Other primaries yesterday were in Indiana, Florida, Ohio and New Mexico. In two earlier primaries this year, all incumbents seeking re- nomination won. And that pattern appeared to hold true yesterday. Earlier primaries were in Illinois and New Jersey. cr NOW-PASTE AT NO EXTRA CHARGE Now at Wards—get aH me WaHpoper Paste you need free—to apply me waHpaper you buy.

Folsom ran far ahead in a seven-man competition for the Democratic nomination for governor. Polsom, whose antics as governor gained him the nickname "Kissing Jim," moved within range of a majority of all votes Failure to get a majority would put Folsom in a runoff June 1 with his nearest opponent, State Sen, Jimmy Faulkner. Bender, long-time Ohio political associate of the late Sen. Robert A. Taft, goes into a November race with Sen. Thomas A. Burke for the remaining two years of Taft's term. Burke, a Democrat, was appointed to succeed Taft until the November election. Bender defeated Ohio House Speaker William Saxbe. Burke was unopposed in the Democratic primary. No Majority Seen In Florida, incomplete returns indicated neither Acting Gov. Charley E. Johns, nor State Sen. Leroy Collins could gain a clear majority in a three-way race for the Democratic governor nomination. Failing that, they'll go into a primary runoff May 25. Indiana's 11 Incumoent congressmen—10 Republicans and one Democrat — took commanding leads. Most interest hi the Hoosier primary centered on local issues. Returns from yesterday's primary in New Mexico pushed Alvin Stockton, Raton stockman and legislator into an impressive lead early today over Socorro Mayor Holm O. Bursum for the Republican nomination for governor. The winner of the GOP contest. one of the few to arouse much interest in an otherwise listless com- paign, will contend next November against Democrat John F. Simms Jr., 37-year-old Albuquerque lawyer, unopposed in the primary. The general election will pit Mechem against incumbent Democrat- Clinton P. Anderson for Anderson's seat in the U. S.
