Tally Network Election 'Calls'
NEW VORK (AP) — Last week's election night drew from the networks a total of 2t>2 "projected'’ or ‘‘estimated” winners, by their count. How do they feel the night's calls now hold up? First, the breakdown ABC says it projected winners in 34 senate and 35 gubernatorial races and called a number of house candidates ‘apparent” winners. We're ignoring the last, since "apparent’’ is bet-hedging and not a firm call.
CBS says it declared 29 senatorial and 30 gubernatorial candidates and Hep. Wilber D. Mills (D-Ark ), “estimated” winners, which I’d define as those CBS considered the victor at the time of the call.
NBC says it projected 26 senate, 29 gubernatorial and 18 house candidates as winners on election night.
ABC’ says none of its definite calls was wrong, except maybe in the Ohio gubernatorial and North Dakota U.S. senate races. NBC says all its calls were right, except maybe in the Ohio race, while CBS has posted a “maybe” sign in North Dakota while saying ail its other calls were on the mark.

In either state, the “maybe” is an important qualification because, the networks

But it could use only one fist
for chest-thumping on the Young projection, which it gave at about IO p.m.. only to revise its opinion on the late returns and say “too close to call” at 12:17 a m.
CBS, which insisted the Gil-ligan-Rhodes race was too close to call all night, estimated at 9:04 p.m. that Young had won re-election. But it noted at 1:35 a m. the victory might not be certain, with Walter Oronkite cautioning. “We don't miss many of them, but it is possible.”
NBO, the last of three networks to end its election night program, did so at almost 2:30 am., having declared the Young-Guy race still too close to call, but leaving its 7:51 p.m. Gilligan projection unchanged.

In Nbrth Dakota, GOP Sen. Milton R. Young, whom CBS and ABC initially declared the winner, was in a virtual dead heat with former Democratic Gov. William L. Guy, according to unofficial returns.
In Ohio, incumbent Democratic Gov. John T. Gilligan, whom NBC and ABC initially declared the winner, trails former Gov. John J. Rhodes by an unofficial margin of about 15.000 votes.
The Associated Press initially declared Guy and Gilligan winners — the latter after a

"NOBODY EVER TOLD ME . .. how easy it is to save at a credit union."
Most credit unions offer payroll deduction where you can have any amount deducted from your paycheck each payday . .. automatically ... painlessly.
In credit unions without payroll deduction, saving is easy by mail or in person.
You get the same or better return on your savings as with any other financial institution.
In Iowa a credit union is a place to grow. Because a credit union is not run for profit, but for and by people like you. Let a credit union help you by saving on a regular basis—build a brighter tomorrow now.
In times like these... that means a lot!
