President Nixon set the pace, arriving at a school house in San Qemcntc, Calif., with wife Pat and daughter Tricia, mo- ments befnre the 7 a.m. poll opening. He let the ladies vole first, then cast his ballot for what he hopes will be national endorsement of his r.dministra- lion. J i In school houses, fire stations and municipal halls front chilly Maine, through rainy Ohio and Michigan to sunny Arizona, Americans were electing 35 sen- alors, 35 governors ?nd a new 435-member House of Repre- sentatives. The angry clamor of a bitter mid-term campaign was yielding to the solemnity of the decision. Republicans appeared likely to add one to three scats to their minority position in the Senate. Lillle change was expected in t h e Democratic-controlled House. Democrats appeared headed for stalchousc gains of perhaps a half-dozen governor- ships. The Nixons marked newspa- per-sized blue ballots at the grade school abcut a quarter mile from their San Clcmcnte waterfront home, then drove to fire department headquarters where Nixon thanked firemen for quickly extinguishing a small blaze in his home late last Thursday. Bottle-Borne Messages Show MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) Those bottle-borne messages from the "Rose Bowl" are start- ing to reach the vacation beach- es of Broward and Palm Beach counties. "Rose Bowl" is the sarcastic name for the big brown patch of sewage which rises two miles out in the Atlantic from the un- derwater conduit which carries away the raw wastes of Miami Beach. Members of the Eco-Comman- do Force 70, a private ecological group, dumped 700 bottles in'o the Atlantic near the untreated sewage outlet two miles off- shore Oct. 22. Each bottle carried a post card addressed to Gov. Claude Kirk or the Miami News. Kirk said his office participat- ed to show "that at least some of the sewage has got to reach the beach." George Gardner, Kirk's ad- ministrative assistant, said, "The most significant thing about this is it points to the fact that sewage doesn't stay in one place." For the past 11 days, bottles have floated ashore at Pompano Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lau- dcrdale, Hollywood. Tort Ever- glades and Dania, 25 to 40 miles north of the "Rose Bowl." The News has received 62 cards and Kirk's office received 47. The Eco Commando force, which has proclaimed an "un- conventional war on said the bottle experiment was planned to sec where the scw- ase goes after it is dumped. some of the bottles was this message: "Wherever you found this bottle, you can assume that some of Miami's sewage was there also."

Police Chief Raps 'V Sign By DOUG WILLIS Associated Press Writer SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Po- lice Chief Ray Blackmorc says he "would have liked it a lot belter" if President Nixon had not flashed a "V for victory" sign lo antiwar demonstrators at a Republican rally here last Thursday. But Blackmore said Monday the President was never In dan- ger from the chanting crowd and added (hat reports of vio- lence at the demonstration had been exaggerated. "A few rocks were thrown. There was a verbal attack. That was the so-called Blackmore said. lie said San Jose Stale Cnllcge students and police alike "were smeared" by descriptions of "a hail of rocks and but de- clined to disclose whom he blamed, saying, "I don't want to get involved in a political dis- pute." He also refused comment on student assertions that it was a deliberate provocation for Nixon to make the V sign, but com- mented: "I would have liked it a lot better if he had not gotten on the car and waved. We felt the sooner we could get him out of there Ihe better. A delay of a minute could be crucial, but we did get the President safely out of there, so 1 can't say it was an error." Chris Moshcr, 23, a nonstu- dent leader of Medical Resis- tance, a group organized to treat persons injured in demon- strations, said four students were injured by police clubs and 30 affected by an irritant gas. Blackmore said one officer suf- fered a broken finger. Mosher said a search of the site of the demonstration alter the presidential party !elt turned up "four rocks, a couple of hollies and a stick or two." Blackmore said he saw one bottle thrown, heard sounds of one or two other missiles, and had evidence that one car in the presidential party was hit by a rock. Windows were broken in a bus near the end of the presi- dential motorcade. "Who threw Ihe rocks? I don't know. It could have been work- ing Blackmore said at a student meeting at San Jose State. In San Francisco, John F. Henning, executive sccrctary- trcasurer of the AFL-CIO Cali- fornia Labor Council on Politi- cal Education, accused Nixon of coming lo San Jose lo provoke a demonstration. charge that President Nixon personally aggravated and provoked the San Jose stu- dents for political Henning said. The President noted the party In the White House usually loses substantially In congressional balloting in off-year elections, but he said Republicans will do better than that this lime. He wouldn't make a prediction in numbers, though. Above all, Nixon said, he hoped voters would turn out in great numbers. "This is a day lor the majority to he said. The lumout across the nation seemed to be fulfilling this ex- pressed wish. In Rhode Island, a possibly unprecedented off-year high ap- peared in Ihe offing. Voting was heavy in Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma and tending toward heavy in Connecticut, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Virginia. Against this trend were Maryland and the city of Detroit, though the rest of Mich- igan showed a strong turnout. The rain bell included Virgin- ia. Maryland, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Nebras- ka. Nebraska also was getting some srow as was Texas' west- ern panhandle. In Towson. Md., Vice Presi- dent Spiro T. Agnew braved a thunderstorm to vote a straight Republican ticket. Asked wheth- er he believed his hard-hitting campaign had an effect on the outcome, Agnew said: "I do. and I defy anyone to prove that I'm wrong." The voting followed a cam- paign in which Republicans stressed law and order and Dcmccrals hammered at the state ol the economy. The GOP theme was contin- ued even on election day as White House Press Secretary Ronald L. Zieglcr volunteered a statement at San Clemente about the rock throwing incident following Nixon's speech last Thursday in San Jose. "It was a serious and unfnr- lunate incident that 1 personally would hope never would occur around the President of the United Stales and those ac- companying Zieglcr said. The San Jose police chief, Ray Blackmorc, had said Mon- day that reports of the violence were exaggerated. Wife, Daughter Beat President to the Polls SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.
