   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 6, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                 2A  The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Wed., November 6. 1974  McGovern, Bayh Win Third Senate Terms  (Continued from Page I.)  Edmondson was closing in on front-running Republican Sen Henry Belimon.  In Nevada, former Republi can Gov. Paul Laxalt edgec ahead of Democratic Lt. Gov Harry Reid for the seat of retiring Democrat Alan Bible.  Elsewhere, the incumbents generally won. The two biggest names among the Democratic senators, George McGovern of South Dakota and Birch Bayh of Indiana, captured third terms.  Dole Comeback  And Bumpers and Glenn won easily the Arkansas and Ohio senate seats now held by Democrats J. W. Fulbright and Howard Metzenbaum, their victims in bitter primary battles last May.  In Kansas, scene of one of the tightest races, former Republi can National Chairman Robert Dole battled back to edge Democratic Rep. William Roy.  And in Utah, Republican Mayor Jake Gam of Salt Lake City defeated Democratic Rep. Wayne Owens, a member of the house judiciary committee, for the seat of retiring Republican Wallace Bennett.  Other new senators included Rep. John Culver in Iowa and former Attorney General Robert Morgan of North Carolina, both Democrats.  G.O.P. Casualties In the house, the biggest name casualties were on the house judiciary committee — four Republicans who had defended Nixon, Reps. Charles Sandman and Joseph Maraziti of New Jersey; David Dennis of Indiana; Wiley Mayne of Iowa, and a fifth who voted against the former President, freshman Harold Froehlich of Wisconsin,  Of the five Democrats who unseated Republicans in special elections last spring, all won again except Rep. Tom Luken of Ohio, edged in his rematch with Republican Willis Gradieon in the Cincinnati district.  In Ford’s home district in Grand Rapids, Mich., which he represented for a quarter century before Nixon picked him for  the vice-presidency, Democratic Rep. Richard VanderVeen won again despite Ford's visit last week.  Republican losses tended to come in clusters — five in Indiana. four in New Jersey, four in New York, two in Wisconsin and two in Virginia, including out,ting suburban Washington Rep. Joel Broyhill, a 22-year veteran.  In California, the G.O.P. was losing in four races.  On the Democratic side, there were single losses in Florida, Louisiana. Ohio, Pennsylvania and South Dakota.  Mills Wins  Rezoning Plan Draws Remarks From Neighbors  Problems with drainage of storm sewers and backed-up sanitary sewers dominated the comments at a public hearing Wednesday on proposed rezoning at 3028 E avenue NW.  The proposed rezoning was the only one of seven public hearings to draw objections, but  But in Arkansas, Rep. Wilbur Mills (D-Ark.), the embattlec chairman of the house ways and means committee, was easily re-elected over Republican Judy Petty, despite the adverse publicity of last month’s incident in which police stopped his speed ing car, found the congressman intoxicated and a former stripper jumped out and into Washington's Tidal Basin.  In the governors’ races. Democrats scored expected victories over Republicans in a number of states, including New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Colorado, Oregon, Tennessee and Wyoming.  But Democrat Sander Levin's second bid to unseat Republican Gov. William Milliken again fell short in Michigan, and Republi can James Edwards was elected the first G.O.P. governor in a century in South Carolina as the result of controversy surrounding the disqualification of the Democratic primary winner.  In Maine, meanwhile, independent James Longley surprised Democrat George Mit chell and Republican James Erwin.  Big N. Y. Margin  In New York. Carey ran up an 800,000-vote margin over Republican Gov. Malcolm Wilson, who became governor when Nelson Rockefeller resigned last December, to recapture the state for his party for the first time in 16 years.  In Connecticut, Rep. Ella Grasso became the first woman to win a governorship without succeeding her husband.  Incumbents re-e I e c t e d included Democrats George Wallace in Alabama. Reubin Askew in Florida, Milton Shapp in Pennsylvania. Wendell Anderson in Minnesota. Marvin Man-del in Maryland. Patrick Lucey in Wisconsin, Philip Noel in Rhode Island and Republicans Robert Ray of Iowa and Mel-drim Thompson of New Hampshire.  Democratic newcomers included former Rep. David  Two fromC.R.

Urban for Culver, Rural for Stanley  Collapse of Nixon Lung  LONG BEACH (UPI) - Richard Nixon was too weak to watch the election returns on television Tuesday night but he voted earlier by absentee ballot.  A hospital spokesman revealed that Nixon had suffered a collapse of a small area of the right lung last week but said it was not important enough to “push the panic button.”  The condition was being studied, the spokesman said. He called it atelectasis, or an inactive area cf lung tissue.

Linn Margin  Linn county sent Culver out into the state with a 14,006-vote margin over Stanley, second only to Polk county’s 15.736.  Culver also got strong support from Second district counties other than Linn, including a 9.302-vote margin in Dubuque county and one of 2.555 in Clinton.  Neighboring Johnson county, in the First district where Stan-ey lives, gave Culver a comforting bulge of 5,383 votes.  And across the state in Woodbury. county seat Sioux City, where he worked hard to make his name known, Culver won a 2.005-vote victory.  In fact, the unofficial 41.417-vote margin by which he defeated Stanley (with a few precincts still out) actually was surpassed in the state’s nine largest counties. which gave him a total margin of 50.972.
