NOVEMBER 5, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES PUN Early National Turnout Light WASHINGTON (AP) - Democrats appeared headed for gains across the land Tuesday as Americans anguished by the Watergate scandal and the deterioration of the dollar cast ballots. Early reports, meanwhile, did little to brighten predictions that less than half the electorate — perhaps only 40 percent — would go to the voting oooth. President Ford had exhorted all voters to exercise their privilege as a demonstration of confidence in the Republic. Chilly, rainy weather discouraged participation in many locations in the East and Midwest. In Illinois, for example, those who lined up early in a 40-degree drizzle came in numbers which totaled only about two-thirds of the normal off-year turnout. (Photos on Picture Page) At stake in Tuesday’s nationwide balloting were 34 of the IOO senate seats, 35 of the 50 state governorships, all 435 house seats, and a variety of state and local offices and issues. Gains by the party out of presidential power are tradi- Israeli Raid In Lebanon; 2 Kidnaped BEIRUT (AP) - Israeli troops Rinded with helicopters Tuesday in the south Lebanon town of Majdal Zoun, blew up the home of its head man, then kidnaped the man and his oldest son. witnesses reported. The helicopters overflew the town shortly before sunrise, then the 'force of about 150 troops walked into the town from several directions, the witnesses said. Majdal Zoun is six miles from the Israeli border. The Israelis headed straight to the house of Mukhtar Aref Suleiman and arrested him along with two of his sons, then ordered the rest of the family to leave, the witnesses said. Blew It Up The raiders quickly wired the s’ructure and planted explosive charges, then blew it up. They took Suleiman. All, 15. and Mustafa. 12. to a helicopter. Mustafa was crying and the troops sent him Jjack to the village moments before Suleiman and Ali got in the helicopter. In Tel Aviv, an Israeli communique said the father and son were being “detained” for questioning. “Both were known to have cooperated with terrorists,” it said. The town’s inhabitants took refuge in their stone homes during the 90-minute raid, coming out only after they heard the sound of tho helicopters fade away inside Israel. First in Months The Israelis said they encountered no resistance and suffered no casualties. It was the third Israeli attack on Lebanese territory in five days but the first time in months that an infiltration squad was reported to have brought back prisoners. The mountain frontier has been tense since Oct. 12 when five or more Arab guerillas crossed the border, apparently! planning a raid to coincide with j talks being held in Jerusalem by Secretary of State Kissinger The party went into hiding and was never found Stocks Stage Sharp Gain NEW YORK (AID - The stock market advanced sharply Tuesday.

Republicans hoped to hold Democratic advances within the averages of recent years — 4 senators. 26 house members and 6 governorships. Expected Gains The last pre-election Associated Press survey, however, indicated that, despite GOF. claims of some late turnaround, the Democrats seemed likely to gain from 5 to 7 senators, 30 to 50 house members and 6 to IO governors. This could swell the current j Democratic congressional ma-| jorities — 58 to 42 in the senate, 248 to 187 in the house — close to the two-thirds needed to over-i ride presidential vetoes. The final Gallup poll showed 55 percent of the voters expected to choose Democrats in house races, with the figure rising to 60 percent if the undecid-eds split along the same lines. Increased Democratic majorities doubtless would create problems for Ford’s programs | over the next two years, but few observers think that even two-thirds Democratic majorities in both houses would create the “veto-proof congress” against which the President has campaigned. Governors Races In the governors races, the| Democrats seemed likely to expand substantially their current! 32 to 18 majority and perhaps approach or surpass the 39 state houses the party captured in 1936. Polls showed the Democrats' would recapture the New York and California governorships, and Chairman Robert Strauss predicted his Democratic party would wind up with control of the governments in states con-, taming 85 to 90 percent of the nation’s population. Republicans generally shied away from pre-election forecasts. Republican Chairman Mary Louise Smith said “we are going to do much better than people are predicting.” Ford. who campaigned in 20 states for G.O.P. candidates, also refused to make any predictions. He expressed hope that current congressional ratios would emerge unchanged. Senators in Jeopardy In the senate races, four incumbent Republican senators appeared in greatest jeopardy — Peter Dominick of Colorado, opposed bv Gary Hart; Marlow Cook of Kentucky, opposed by Gov. Wendell Ford; Milton Young cf North Dakota, opposed by former Gov. William Guy, and Henry Bellmon of Oklahoma, opposed by former Rep. Ed Edmondson. In.addition, Democrat Richard Stone was favored to defeat Republican Jack Eckerd and American Party candidate John Grady for the seat of Republican Sen Edward Gurney, indicted earlier this year on charges of bribery, conspiracy and per-jury. In Kansas, however. Republican Sen. Robert Dole has battled back from an earlier deficit to take a slim lead in late polls in his race with Rep William Roy. In Utah, Democratic Rep Wayne Owens appeared to be edging ahead in his tight contest with Salt Lake City Mayor Jake (Continued: Page 3.

After asking the election judge's permission to join her mother, Gretchen Koffron, 4, walked over to the booth and reached out as if to say, "That's my mommy." More than 300 people already had voted at Arthur school by mid-morning and as the picture shows, there was a considerable line of people waiting. Predictions had been for a light turnout.

Quadrupled prices for crude oil over the last year have produced a surplus of around $60 billion in the oil states and have forced hard times on developing countries that have to decide whether to buy oil or food with scant ! foreign exchange reserves. “Priority Objectives” The grain supply deficit in de veloping countries will reach about 85 million tons by 1985, Kissinger said. Financing them to increase production “must become one of the priority objectives of the countries and in-istitutions that have the major . influence in the internationa monetary system.” he said. The Rome food conference trends, he said, twice as much food must be produced by the end of the century to maintain even the current inadequate situation. Earth’s Capacity “Population cannot continue indefinitely to double every generation,” Kissinger said. “At some point we will inevitably exceed the earth’s capacity to sustain human life.” Kissinger cited estimates that the gap between what poor nations produce and what they need will rise from 25 million to 85 million tons a year by 1985. “Even today, hundreds of millions of people do not eat enough for decent and productive lives,” he said. “In many parts of the world, 30 to 50 percent of the children die before the age of 5, many of them from malnutrition. Many survive only with permanent damage to their intellectual and physical capacities.” Petersen Is Bowing Out At Justice tionwide coal mine shutdown ap- ment “incredible,” and said he* tract. IU.N.
