McKeliar in nearly complete returns from yesterday's Democratic primary. Frank G. Clement, 32, ended Gordon Browning's f o u r-year reign as governor. Brownmg was seekinjr a third two-year term. Gore, 44. who campaigned long and earnestly throughout the slate a f t e r his Fourth district was eliminated in a 1951 redilsricting act, piled up what seemed certain to be an insurmountable lead over McKclUr. Returns from 2.022 of i h e stale's approximately 2,300 precincts gave: Gore 1!10,300. McKeliar ljj.883. But Kellar refused to concede defeat in his try for an unprece- : dented seventh term in the Senate. Returns from 2,029 precincts gave: Clement 192,812. Clifford Allen, Jr., 49,962. The Nashville Tennetsean, a staunch Browning supporter, conceded Clement's victory shortly before midnight last night. Browning had no statement.
