A for nearly three years. Sen. Earl Mundt has been absent from the Senate the victim of a stroke that has left the South Dakota Republican virtually helpless. Although urged by state re publicans to do so the 71-year-old Mundt refused late in 1970 a resignation which would have allowed cop gov. Frank l. Farrar to appoint a successor before Farrar turned his office Over to Democrat Richard f. Kneip. Now Mundt must run for reelection in 1972 to stay in office.
