"WITHOUT, OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOILS WE SKli'KJH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT (MUM tna tVTt ABILENE, TEXAS, THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 10, 1938. EIGHTEEN PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS" HOW THE U. S. VOTED IN SENATE, GOVERNOR RACES PRICE FIVE CENTS AS ISSUES FOR NEXT CONGRESS- Elections Mark Farm Problem, Pensions WASHINGTON, Nov. 9. James P. POM nf TAihn _____ WASHINGTON, Nov. 9. Politicians, reading between the lines of the election returns, found signs today the farm problem and old age pensions would be two of the paramount Issues in the new congress. Most observers believed the re- surgence of republican strength In the agrlculiural midwest was due In part to farmer dissatisfaction with crop prices. Before the election, Secretary of Agriculture Wallace had put his program directly at Issue In Kan- sas by telling farmers there a vote against Senator George McGill. seeking re-election, would be a vote against the agricultural adjustment administration. McGHI's defeat removes from congress the second of the two democratic senators whose names were on the present crop law as Its sponsors. The other, Senator Jamej p. pope of Idaho, (ailed to win renomlnatlon. Already some farmer groups were agitating for enactment of the so- called domestic allotment plan. This call! for elimination of re- strictions on production and a guaranteed price for that portion of the crop consumed In this coun- try. Any surplus would be disposed of abroad, if possible, at whatever price It would bring. Wallace has criticized this us "exporting the fertility" of the na- tion's soil. He has proposed in- stead a two-price domestic system under which the go ernment would endeavor U> Increase consumption at home by malting farm products available to low-lcome families at prices belov the general market. Wallace has Indicated, too, he favors enactment of processing taxes to bring In revenue for larger benefit payments. Advocacy of liberal old pen- sions appeared lo be one of the vote-getting factors In many races. Although the California proposal for "MO-Every Thursday" to the unemployed over 50 was defeated, there was a heavy vote for It. Sheridan Downey, supporter of the program, won election to the senate on the democratic- ticket and Culbert Olson, democratic nominee who had premised to give It a "fair trial" it it was approved in the referendum, was elected governor. Across the continent, Levered Saltonstall, who captured Uie gov- ernorship of Massachusetts for republicans, had the backing of Townsend organization. In Colorado, the voters approved continuance of monthly pen- sions for the aged.

Eight Senators, 11 State Heads Added To Fold Democrats Win California And N. D. Governors By The Associated Press Republican gains in every broad section of the except the the expectations of party leaden for a successful 1940 presi- dential campaign today and brought predictions of a sub- stantial opposition to new deal measures in congress. 70 IN HOUSE .1 For Tuesday's balloting added eleven republicans to the roster of the nation's governors, Increased the party's membership In the house by more than 70 and gave It at least eJght additional votes In the senate But even these. victories did not completely measure the extent of the republican advance. In several major contests which the repub- licaru lost, their party displayed much more strength than In recent years. Against the republican triumphs there were offsets. One cf these was a narrow democratic victory In tr.i all-Important state of New York, which retained Herbert H. Lehman, democrat, in the gover- nor's chair. In addition the democrats took California, which has had a repub- lican governor for many years, and replaced the republican governor of North Dakota with one of their own party. They also placed a democrat In the governor's chair In Maryland previously held by a republican. DEMOS KEEP CONTROL But while the democrats and the New Deal lost much, they had lose. The results left the party securely In control of both house and senate, although the re- publican gains vastly Increased the potential effectiveness of a coalition of republicans and anti-New Deal democrats. The returns pushed the stock market into an energetic upward swing that produced new highs tor the 1838 bull trend. And the bull- ish spirit was apparent, too, In gains for bonds and commodity prices, although the latter were moderate. Republican spokesmen were quick to make the most of their victory. Senator Vandenberg, of Michigan, whose stature as a presidential prospect seemed lo Increase with a republican victory In hts state, said the election was "an amazing de- feat for the Roosevelt party and program" and one that was "the more convincing because of the marvel that such a victory could be won against Santa Claus."
