WEDNESDAY, JANUARY AMOCIATVD WOU UBVICB Price Seven Cents Johnson Asks Democrats to Take Initiative Says Eisenhower Administration Has 'Deficit of Vigor' Washington Sen. Lyn- don B. Johnson (D-Texas) called on Democrats in con- gress today to take the initia- tive to offset the Eisenhower administration's "deficit of vigor" in grappling with space age problems. Johnson, the senate Demo- cratic leader, told a confer- ence of his party colleagues that because the Eisenhower administration clings to static ideas "our mandate is a man- date for confident and crea- tive and instructive leader- now, not to two years hence." In what was billed in some quarters as Johnson's own state-of-the-Union mess age, he made it clear President Eisenhower's policies are go- ing to be challenged sharply by the heavily Democratic congress. Would "Balance Books" Saying the capabilities of the nation and its people are now outrunning the capabil- ities of our Johnson declared: "There is between the peo- ple and their government a deficit of figures, a deficit of confidence and a deficit of will.' Prudence requires that we bring these books into bal- ance." Johnson challenged Eisen- hower's proposal to balance the budget at billion and struck back at Eisenhower's attack on Democratic "spend- ers." "Fiscal solvency concerns us Johnson said. "It is a first concern, for no course is honest without the courage of financial prudence. But we cannot afford to bankrupt the national conscience to serve the poltiical bookkeep- ing." Johnson said the world is moving into a new age bul "government is moving hardly at all." He added that the country needs boldnes and freshness in its approach to tremendous new problems and "we do not have it now." Johnson spoke at a party conference at which he was reelected without opposition to serve as the senate Democrat- ic leader, a post he has belt since 1953. All of the 64 Democratic senators were present excepl Richard L. Neuberger (D-Ore) who is in Oregon recovering from an illness. Also reelected by the conference were Sen. Car Hayden the dean of the congress, as senate president pro tern; Mike Mansfield as whip and Thomas C. Hennings Jr.. (Mo) as secretary of the conference. Probe Charges of Union Racket Link Washington The sen- ale rackets investigating committee said today it is looking into allegations link- ing the names of some offi- cials of the mailers and de- livery drivers union in the New York area with gangs- ters and shakedown deals. A committee spokesman said the investigation has Vermont Still Wonders Who Is Governor MMtpelter, The Vermont legislature convenes today, but without many of the traditional formalizes of the opening days because it is still uncertain who will sit in as governor. Gov. Joseph B. Johnson, Republican who did not seek reelection, is scheduled to de- liver his outgoing address to the legislature tomorrow, but will continue in office until his successorTs decided. Robert T. Stafford, Republi- can, was declared winner of the gubernatorial race by 918 votes over his Democratic op- ponent, Bernard J. Leddy, in the November election. The votes had been counted certified by local clerks and forwarded to the office of the secretary of'state. That procedure of vote- counting had been followed in Vermont since 1893 without challenge. Quotes Constitution But Leddy pulled out the state constitution, written in 1793, and pointed to Section 93 which stipulates that the bal- lots for governor and other state officers must be counted personally by the legislators. Fully votes were cast in the last election. Secretary of State Howard Armstrong said last night that no one seemed quite certain how the matter would be handled. State Atty. Gen. Fred M. Reed said "I have not been formally asked for an opinion on the matter, but my person- al feeling is that the counting by the legislature will be the first official tabulation to be made." Two legislators said they would submit a resolution to the Republican-controlled leg- islature today for an official recount of ballots. Statehouse sources said it might be 10 days to two weeks before Vermont officially has a new governor. 6 Perish as Home Burns Father, 5 Children lose Lives in Minnesota Tragedy Brandon, Minn.

In Rep. John W. Byrnes of Wisconsin, GOP house members are confident they have the man to give a new look as well as new voice to Republican policy aims. Regarded as one of the bright young men in GOP house ranks, Byrnes, 45, Tues- day named chairman of the house Republican policy committee.

Key Figure Byrnes was a key figure in the movement that replaced Martin with Rep. Charles A Halleck of Indiana. Byrnes has long been dis- satisfied with operation of the GOP party machinery in the house. Under Martin, who held the dual job of leader and chair- man of the policy group, the policy committee met infre- quently and rarely made any major pronouncements.
