TURNER OUTSTRIPS FLYNN IN VOTE RACE
Landslide Is Complete
Only Solid South Stands Firmly by Incumbents; Will Change Speaker, Chairmen
WASHINGTON, Nov, 6—bP)— The coast to coast republican >weep today carried the party into control of both senate and house in the new congress.
By noon today, the late counting in western states assured the G.O P. of at least 49 seats — the bare minimum for control--and at least 219 house seats, one more than a majority.
A repub .can senate became assn; cd when Arthur Watkins demoted iemorra he senator Abe Murdock in Utah. Democrats have controlled the senate since 1932.
\ .clones of two Washington State incumbents. Reps. Holmes and Horan, pushed the partv over the top for control of the house, axso in democratic hands since President Franklin D. Roosevelt s election in 1932.
A big turnover earlier in control of house seats previously held by democrats had made the outcome virtually certain.
The numerical count assured ii e republicans the privilege and responsibility of reorganizing the he use when congress reassembles in January.
Martin To Be Speaker
And. barring a major surprise, j it will mean that republican leader Martin of Massachusetts, who s piloted G O P. fortunes in congress during the party's lean „*ears, will take over the speaker’s gavel from Sam Rayburn, Texas democrat.

News Sad For Truman
Republican Control Of House Moons Headaches, Senate Loss Would Double It
By JAMES MARLOW
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6—(/PIAR the news about Congress today as bad news for President Truman and whatever plans he has for running the country in the next two years.
As the final results of yesterday s elections dribbled in today, it became clear to everyone that the republicans had won a majority — and therefore control — in th * house.
This republican house victory alone — without the republican triumph in the senate which I seemed within reach as dawn broke over Mr. Truman | e gh to box him up.
He had had tough enough going — arnee he became president in April, 1945 — with i congress where both houses were domina ted by his own democrats.
(A lot of his suggestions got mislaid or waylaid in that democratic congress of his. Some went through. But many were ignored

Molotov Accuses Byrnes of Trying To Hand Ultimatum
Molotov Stubborn os Earlier for Giving Yugoslavia -Advantages at Trieste
By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER
NEW YORK. Nov. (A*)—A showdown fight between the United States and Russia over c2nr!f<)* key Adriatic port
of Trieste appeared to be developing rapidly today with Yugoslavia and Italy both called to testify before the Big-Four foreign ministers council here.
Yugoslavia, with Russian backing, is driving for domination of the port while the United States. with Britain and other western powers, insists on a strong United Nation’s government.
One phase of the row grew so sharp last night that Foreign Minister Molotov of Russia accused Secretary of State Byrnes of trying to deliver an “ultimatum” to the council to the council to force it to take an action considered unfavorable to Yugoslavia. Byrnes struck back with pointed digs about Molotov’s constant insistence on his own views
Following this brief flare-up, however, the two men joined in refreshments after agreeing with Foreign Secretary Bevin of Britain and Deputy Foreign Minister Couve De Murville of France to start today’s session at 10:30 a m. and continue until both Yugoslavia and Italy had been heard.
In one issue after another Molotov showed up on the minority side of stalemated issues in the projected Italian peace treatv-
background of the Trieste fight_
but the Big Four must be unanimous before any agreement can be voted.
In the United Nations, however, where majority votes can force a conclusion, the steering committee of the assembly last night rejected a Soviet proposal to consider the possibility of moving the United Nations headquarters to Europe permanently instead of keeping it in America.
Kansas Remains Staunchly GOP
Carlson Defeats Woodring For Governorship After Sixzling Campaign
TOPEKA, Kas., Nov. 6. _
Ti aditionally republican Kansas apparently was solidly tucked in the G. O. P. fold today for another two years.
Unofficial returns from Tuesday’s election indicated the republican forces again had wrapped up the governorship, all six seats in the national house of representatives, and a full slate of state office holders.
The republicans elected Frank Carlson, sixth district congressman, as the state’s 30th governor . Carlson defeated democrat Harry H. Woodring, former governor and once secretary of war in the Roosevelt cabinet.
Woodring conceded he had been defeated in the face of what he called an apparent “republican tidal wave all over America.” Early today, 2,020 of the state’s 2.745 precincts gave Carlson 201,943 and Woodring 160,-513.
The election climaxed one of the most spirited governorship campaigns in years—one that saw much of its oratory aimed at the state s 66-year-old prohibitory liquor laws, and brought cries of “machine politics” from both republicans and democrats.
Kansas’ six-man delegation to the U. S. house of representatives will have two new faces—Herbert A. Meyer, Independence publisher, and Wint Smith, lawyer and former head of the state highway patrol.
Four incumbents — Reps. Albert M. Cole of the first district, Errctt P. Sonvner of the second Ed II. Recs of the fourth and Clifford R. Hope of the fifth— wera returned to congress.

OKLAHOMA CITY. Nov. 6.—(AP)—Roy J. Turner, Oklahoma City oilman and stock-raiser, was elected governor of Oklahoma in Tuesday’s promary election, incomplete but conclusive unofficial returns showed today.

Holt defeated Howard Lewis and Sugg won over Dr. Ed Granger by almost three to one margins.
Medlock, meantime, was swamping William Breedlove of Seminole county for the state senate, grabbing a 2,000 vote edge in Seminole county and 3,000 votes advantage in his own Pontotoc county.
Pontotoc county, which voted for Glenn Johnson in the July run-off primary, gave further notice of its approval of the democratic nominee for congress for the Fourth district with an overwhelming majority. He also had about a three-to-one vote over Pliny S. Frye of Wewoka.
lite county voted a big edge in favor of the four school amendments and went down the line for the secondary state offices.
Handicapped by muddy roads, the voters were sufficiently con-1 cerned about the outcome of the election to pile up a total vote of around 7.000: some of the results were not brought in to the county election hoard until Wednesday morning because of road and weather conditions over the county when the precinct officials had completed their tabulations.
Flynn conceded defeat.

OKLAHOMA CITY. Nov. 6— bP)—A spokesman for the Oklahoma Education Association today claimed adoption of four proposed amendments affecting common school matters, voted upon in yesterday’s general election.
Each of the measures held a wide margin in the incomplete, unofficial tabulation, but there was a question whether the “silent vote” would operate to defeat them.
However, the OEA spokesman predicted the measures would get at least the necessary 225 OOO votes in an estimated 450.000 total vote. The latest tabulation, from only 2,592 of the state’s 3,703 precincts, gave the measures total ‘ye05’’ votes ranging from 194,300 to 203,716.
