HAYAKAWA .GOP challenger Tunney, Hayakawa see-saw Associated Press U.S. Sen. John Tunney and Republican S.I. Hayakawa fought a see-saw battle Tuesday night as the Democratic incumbent sought to withstand a strong challenge by the semanticist-turned-politician. Throughout the night, the 42-year- old Democratic incumbent whittled down the 70-year-old Hayakawa's initial 10 per cent lead, moving ahead U.S. Senate Race CALIFORNIA of the state's 24.410 Alhambra amendments going down By MARY JANE BIRDSALL Sufi Writer Partial Alhambra election returns late Tuesday night indicated a defeat for two municipal charter amendments which propose to reorganize the City Council. Both GG, Charter Amendment No. 3, which would mandate mayor selection by an annual rotation of the councilman, and JJ, Charter Amend- ment No. 5 establishing the election of a mayor at large, appeared to be headed for defeat on the basis of returns from less than half of the 88 city precincts. Voters also filled two council and three Board of Education seats at the polls Tuesday. If both GG and JJ were to pass by the required simple majority vote, the charter amendment receiveing the most votes would become citv policy. Otherwise, Alhambra's mayor will continue to be determin- ed by the councilrnen themselves at an annual December reorganization meeting.

Tunney was making a less-than- strong showing in the Democratic stronghold of the San Joaquin Valley. Thai was one area where his stand supporting the Cesar Chavez-backed Prop. 14, the defeated farm labor initiative, ran counter to many voters' thinking. Tunney also was barely holding onto a 8-5 edge in the Democratic bastion of San Francisco. Hayakawa mounted a vigorous challenge against Tunney, to the end living up to his self-billing as a GOP "unpredictable." The last California Poll gave Tunney, the son of former heavyweight champion Gene Tunney, only a 45-43 per cent lead over Hayakawa. Throughout the race, Hayakawa. the former San Francisco State College president who battled against student radicals in the late 1960s, kept pounding away at Tunney's record, painting him as a big spender who was inattentive to the needs of Californians. Hayakawa, who switched parties to become a Republican in 1973 and who upset former Lt. Gov. Robert Finch in the GOP primary, also took some unusual positions during the campaign. Among them, he called for: easing of child labor and minimum wage laws for minors un- der 18. women's demonstration against magazines like Penthouse and Playboy because "women have a right to the privacy of their private parts." possibility of sending a peacekeeping American force into Africa if that part of the world moves to the edge of bloodshed. of uprisings in Soviet satellites in Eastern Europe. Those positions did not go by without comment from Tunney, who survived a strong challenge by onetime student radical Tom Hayden in the June primary. Tunney said Playboy and Penthouse were not issues in the Senate race and sharply criticized Hayakawa's positions on child labor, Eastern Europe and Africa. Both foreign policy positions, he said, could encourage needless bloodshed. Toward the end of the race, Tunney seemed to relax somewhat and started to tell reporters regular- ly that he thought he would win in no small part because of the positions Hayakawa was taking. "I think that Hayakawa is beginn- ing to make one mistake after Tunney said last week. He told voters that he was a diligent senator and had introduced numerous major pieces of legislation. THE WINNER Former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter waves to well-wishers with his wife Rosalynn outside their polling place in Plains, Ga. Tuesday. Carter was declared the winner over President Gerald Ford late Tuesday. Incumbents leading in area solan races By STEVE HEMMERICK SUlt Writer Results favored Star-News area in- cumbent congressmen, state senators and assemblymen in in- complete voting returns Tuesday night. Voters appeared to be rejecting challengers' pleas for a change in leadership. Seeking a 16th term, Assemblyman John L.E. Collier, R-Arcadia, held a comfortable lead late Tuesday over democratic candidate Pat Ostrye, a Monrovia city councilwoman, and American Independent candidate Brian Scanlon, an engineer and com- puter programmer. Mrs. Ostrye was the only woman candidate in state legislative and congressional races in the Star-News area. Another longtime incumbent Assemblyman Frank Lanterman, R- La Canada, seeking a 14th term, maintained an early lead Tuesday over Democrat Pat Johnston, an at- torney from La Crescenta. In congressional races, Democrat Bruce Latta, an Azusa resident and office manager of a family owned welding firm, was trailing Rep. John Rousselot, R-Arcadia, in the 26th dis- trict. Rep. Carlos Moorhead, R- Pasadena, took an early lead in the 22nd district over Democratic can- didate Bob Salley, an Altadena resi- dent and Blair High School teacher. Rep. George Danielson, D- Monterey Park, had what appeared to be a safe lead in the 30th district over Republican candidate Harry Couch, an electrical contractor. In State Senate races, Newton Russel, R-Glendale, took a decisive lead in early returns over Raymond Loftus, a college teacher and real es- tate broker. Russell's newly reap- portioned 21st district includes Pasadena, Altadena, La Canada, La Crescenta, Montrose and Flintridge. State Sen. H.L. Richardson, R- Arcadia, held a strong lead Tuesday over Democrat Ronald Barbatoe, a West Covina lawyer.

The contest was close, a 3 per cent margin in the popular vote, but Carter gained clear command in the electoral college, where presidents are chosen. Wisconsin and Mississippi put him _____________________ past the majority with 272 electoral votes in The Associated Press tabulation. So the outsider, who began his campaign 22 months ago without visible means of political support, became Presidentelect Carter. On .Ian. 20, he will become the 39th President of the United States, and the first Deep South president elected since Zachary Taylor in 1848 "We've made political Carter said as he left Plains, Ga., for Atlanta and a mass victory rally planned long in advance. And Kord was led to political history as the only appointed president. He came close, narrowed what had been a runaway Carter margin in the early polls. But the poll that counted was registered on Tuesday, by an unexpectedly high turnout of voters. Georgia's Carter swept out of the South, holding it almost solidly, and returning the region to the Democratic column save for Virginia. That state went to Ford, the only crack he could manage in Carter country. To those electoral votes. Carter added border states, New York and Pennsylvania. He captured Democratic strongholds like Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and won in the Minnesota home of his runniiiR mate, Sen. Walter F.

Ford, strongest in the Midwest and West, won 21 states, led in five, with a total of 196 electors! votes. The contest drew a heavier-lhan- expected voter turnout, and while that worked to Carter's advantage, the race was almost as close as had been advertised. Democrats quickly certified their control of both Sena'te and House in the 95th Congress. They were assured at least the 62 votes they hold in the current Senate, and they appeared on the way to about the same 290 to 145 margin by which they dominate the current House. But it was not a good night to be an incumbent senator. Four Republican and four Democratic senators had been defeated. This was the national picture with 86 per cent of the precincts repor- ting- Ford won 21 states with 136 elec- toral votes and led in five states with 60 electoral votes. Carter won 22 states and the District of Columbia with 272 electoral votes and led in two states including California with 70 electoral votes. Democrats won 21 of the 33 Senate races and led in California. Republicans won 10 races, and Independent Harry Byrd of Virginia was re-elected. Forty Democrats and 27 Republicans are holdovers in the Senate, where 51 seats comprise a majority. In the 435 House races. Democrats won 258 seats and led for 29, while Republicans took 125 races and were ahead in 23. It takes 218 seats to forge a majority in the House. Democrats won nine of 14 gover- norship elections. Republicans cap- tured five races. The terms of 36 governors 28 Democrats, seven Republicans and an independent did not expire this year. The states in Carter's victory column were a roster of the South, save for Virginia. Only there did Turn to Page A2 Area cityhood plan passing By JACKIE KNOWLES SUM Writer The gates of cityhood seemed to be swinging wide open for La Canada- Flintridge according to the latest vote tally early today, with pro- incorporation votes outnumbering those against by more than two to one. The five leading candidates in the council race are Michael Mount, George Parrish, Edmund J. Krause, J.D. Smith and 0. Warren Hillgren. Experience seemed to count in drawing the votes, with two relative newcomers with backgrounds rele- vant to setting up a new city outrank- ing some of the civic leaders who have lived in the community for years. Mount is a municipal efficiency La Canada-Flintridge incorporation boosted consultant, and J.D. Smith is an at- torney as well as a Los Angeles policeman. Leaders in the cityhood movement consider setting up a contract with the county for police service an important item since it is estimated to be 50 per cent of the proposed city's budget. Others in the race are Kent Frew- ing and Kenneth Schechtcr, who also have been active for years in the community; Larry Cardinal, the only La Canada businessman, and George A. Morris Jr., who is a four- ycar resident and an engineer. Additional candidates arc John De Rosa, the only one opposed to cityhood; Dr. Martin Weiss, a neurosurgeon at the University of Southern California; Michael Yamada, an engineer; William Sanders, a plastic manufacturer; Michael Piasccki, a student, and Lyndon J. Watson, who is in operations management. If cityhood is approved the three lop vote getters will serve a four- year term, and the two with the nex' highest count will serve an inltia term of two years, with subsequent four-year tciins for the seats. Elec- tions will be held every two years. If the measure passes, the city will be the 79th in Los Angeles County and only the third municipality born within the last 10 years, the last two being Carson in 1968 and Rancho Palos Verdes in 1973. A flood of 33 incorporations came after 1954, following a 15-year gap of no new cities, when Lakewood introduced the contract-city concept, which is now under scrutiny by the county Board of Supervisors. If La Canada-Flintridge does in- corporate it will join more than 33 other cities that now contract for some municipal service, such as police protection, through the coun- ty. Being able to avoid capital invest- ment for a city police department makes costs of cityhood less, but still comprises 50 per cent of the propos- ed city's projected budget.

Prop. 13's main sponsor, 43-year- old promoter and former harness driver George Hardie, conceded defeat as returns showed the voters turning down dog racing by a 3-to-l margin. However, he said he would try again with two measures on the June 1978 ballot one to legalize greyhound wagering and another to ban horse racing. Hardie, who termed the margin of his defeat depressing, blamed horse racing interests for the results. "The horse racing campaign was very he said. "They talk- ed about crime and cruelty to animals, which doesn't exist. It's a matter of educating the which I'll be doing for the next year- and-a-half." Although returns showed Prop. 14 trailing badly, its prime sponsor, United Farm Workers president Cesar Chavez, refused to admit defeat. "We're not conceding Chavez said, "although it doesn't look too good for us at this point."
