The election was a resounding victory for the forces of democracy over the lingering Peronism in this troubled country's first election since Peron's overthrow in September 1955.

GOP Protests on Loss of State Jobs DES MOINES (JV-lowa Republican politicians Monday were reported to be protesting because nine fieldmen in the State Department of Agriculture will lose their jobs Aug. 31. Clyde Spry, secretary of agriculture, said he 1c hearing from GOP leaders in various parts of the state. Spry said he would have retained all nine men if the Legislature had not cut into his budget by $64,000 a year. State inspection:; of such business as dairy and food establishments will be reduced. Officials said the department's duties have been increasing much faster than the appropriations voted by the legislature. The department now must license every food establishment and roust administer the egg grading law. In addition, the officials said, there are about 3,000 more gaso line pumps to inspect than there were five years ago. The number of restaurants also has increased by about 800 in the last five years. lieved* fairly complete, but authorities pointed out that remote areas might still be heard from. The only foreigner reported injured was a woman tourist from Brooklyn, Mrs. Sarah Dorfman. She suffered cuts on the arm from broken glass In her hotel room. The quake hit this capital of four million at 2:40 a.m. Sunday, and sent seismograph needles spinning. The city was plunged into darkness. Fire engines and ambulances screamed through the rubble-strewn streets. Communications with the shock areas west of the city were cut off and the gilded symbol of Mexican independence—a winged angel—crashed down from its 155-foot base. Hardest at Acapulco The National Seismographic Observatory said instruments indicated the resort town of Acapulco, 215 miles south of the capital, had borne the brunt of the shock. No one could recall when so severe a quake had struck this sprawling metropolis. On the basis of the seismographs. .Mexico City should have been in ruins and Acapulco almost totally destroyed. Loss of life in Mexico City was limited because of the hour. By day, falling masonry and splintered glass would have caused thousands of casualties. Acapulco's jammed tourist hotels largely escaped heavy damage, but t^e tropical boulevards and twisting streets were littered with glass and mortar. Chilpancingo, a town of 9,000 suffered the worst blow outside Mexico City. Hall its homes were damaged, many of them beyond repair. One of the state capital's leading hotels fell apart. Its proprietor died In the ruins. Following the first and biggest shock early Sunday morning, 30 lesser tremors were registered in the capital during the day. but caused relatively little damage. Nerves of foreign visitors sat- fered considerably. Mexico City's Paseo de Reforma was crowded in the chill dawn with hotel eva- cuess shivering in their night clothes. In the new seven-million-dollar 400-room Continental Hilton Hotel, guests tfapped behind jammed doors in the plush building yelled for help. The lights went out, the plumbing failed and a big crack widened down one outside wall. At first it seemed the hotel might have to be emptied. But normal service was restored and the litter cleaned up enough to permit 80 per cent occupancy by tonight. Managing Director Warren Broglie estimated repairs would cost about $80,000 most in redecorating. Others Hit Badly Other buildings did not fare so well. A 14-story structure housing the Canadian Embassy and former New York Mayor William O'Dwyer's law offices was so badly shaken its tenants were not permitted to visit their premises. Engineers' reports were awaited to determine whether it could be reoccupied. Apartment buildings and skyscrapers in much of the downtown area were under examination to determine their safety. Newspapers quickly came out with demands for stricter building code controls to avert a similar condition in the future. day afternoon at St.,Anthony.
