Voters Ignore Party Lines, Giving GOP A Hint For 1964 WASHINGTON (AP) The American electorate's demonstrat- ed disdain for party .labels in Tuesday's election indicates Re- publicans may need a personality- plus candidate in 1964. It just happened in the ballot- Ing that the Republicans who won the big ones are just that type. They have the kind of fresh, vot- er appeal that is- credited with helping make John F. Kennedy hairline winner in 1960. And no one is doubting thai- the President seek re-election in another two years. The GOP stars in an otherwise confusing and. somewhat frustrat- ing election that ended in almost numerical dead heat in congres- aional and gubernatorial contests were: Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York, an omnivorous blintze- consuming, hand-shaking, back- clapping campaigner who is men- tally quick on his feet and knows the ways of television. By getting himself a million votes-Rockefeller leapw to the top of the heap of Kenne- dy's potential GOP rivals. Gov.-elect George Romney of Michigan, an indefatigable cam- paigner who charmed some union votes away from the .Democrats to win his race in a key state. -Possibly somewhat less liberal than Rockefeller, he may attract support from party conservatives who look on the New York gover- nor as too inclined'to the welfare state to suit them. Gov.-elect William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania, a very wealthy man just.getting his feet wet .in bigtime politics. He is a hand- some, all-smiles candidate-. who can be a tough campaigner if the occasion demands it. In the second line, as prospec- tive material for a vice presiden- tial nomination, two young GOP crusaders came to the front. They are Robert Taft Jr., son of the late "Mr. who won election to Congr.ess'in large race in Ohio, and Gov. Mark Hatfield of- Oregon, -who won_re- "pleqtion" while' the voter's" bfhis No One's Cheering At New Congress' Lineup WASHINGTON (AP) Demo- crats and Republicans alike found something to cheer about today in the make-up of the new 88th Congress that will convene on Jan. 9. For the Democrats, the big talk- ing point was that they had-not suffered the big losses that usual- ly befall the party in power in an off-year election. President Kennedy said in a statement issued by the White House that-he was heartened by the outcome of Tuesday's elec- tions and was certain Congress would meet its responsibilities "in a progressive and vigorous man- ner." Republicans failed to make the gains they had hoped for in con- gressional races, but the GOP-na- tional chairman, William E. Mil- ler, said he did not see in this "in any way an endorsement''of- Many people who complain about being up to their ears in work are just lying down on the job. (Copr. Gen. Fea. Corp.) the New Frontier and its pro- grams." The new line-up in the Senate will be 68 Democrats and 32 Re- publicans. This lifts the Demo- cratic majority to the highest peak since they won 69 seats in the 1938 election. They had a 64-36 margin in the outgoing Congress. In the House, where 435 seats were at stake this year, the Dem- ocrats captured 258 and the Re- publicans 176 and the Democrats were leading in one 'undecided 'race in Alaska. If the Democrats win this, they will have a hefty majority of 83. Even so, the Democratic major- ity will be less than it was in' the 87th Congress when there were 437 house seats and the Demo; .crats.held 263 and the Republi- cans 174. Two scats 'were., wiped' out by reapportionment. The Democrats; in effect, absorbed the-loss .of these seats and in addition had suffered.a net loss of four seats 'to- the 'Republicans. A White House-spokesman con- trasted these GOP inroads in- the House with1 what he said was an average loss of -49 House seats by Democratic administrations in midterm elections injh.e past. He also said that- the average loss 'in the Senate for the party (Continued on Two) state were giving another term to Democratic Sen. Wayne Morse. The central performer in the GOP's- greatest disappointment, the failure to attain the' governor- ship of .California, was .Richard M. Nixon, familiar again in bitter defeat. Nixon bowed out of politics with a denunciation of the press and the bitter comment: "You'won't have Nixon to kick around any longer." Nixon had sought through the force of his personality, his abili- tj as a polished debater and his experience in television to over- come Gov. Edmund G.'Brown in a state with a wide bulge in-Dem- ocratic registrations. He'lost Despite his penchant for pro- vincialism and his difficulties with syntax.

Call- fornians, paid' to party labels, was ed Brown and-at time gave a new six-year term to the Senate deputy Republican leader., Thomas H. Kuchel. This seemed to be the mood of voters all over the country as they installed the first Republican governor of Oklahoma and put Democrats in the governors' of- fices in Vermont for the first time in 108 years and in New-Hamp- shire for the first time in 40 years. 'In -Pennsylvania the same pat- tern put Scranton in as governor and gave Democratic Sen. Joseph S. Clark another term. In Michigan, Romney's victory was accompanied by the election of a Democratic lieutenant gov- ernor and a Democratic congress- man-at-large. Edward M. (Ted) Kennedy was the shining star of the Democrat- ic lineup. He won.by a landslide the seat that his eldest brother gave up in 1960 to become Presi- dent.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON Soviet Premier Khrushchev evidently is revising his dip- lomatic strategy' to bring it into line with his "nuclear weapons 'retreat .from Cuba. .This may mean .that he is dropping plans for an early showdown with the United States, Britain and France over the future of West Berlin.

The belief that such a plan 'did in. fact exist arises out of the timing of various Khrushchev maneuvers which pointed to an early effort on his part to force a Berlin showdown in 'that connection, to. have a summit meeting with" Kennedy. The.; as- sumption here is "that he planned to use the Soviet buildup as a sur- prise move aimed at gaining U.S. concessions- on Berlin.
