Wednesday, November 8, LETHBRIDGE HERALD 31 Democrats win in Montana HELENA, Mont. (AP) Republican Rep. Dick Shoup, who last spring termed the House judiciary committee's impeachment investigation a "partisan witch-hunt" was turned out of office Tuesday in Montana's western congressional district. Rep. Shoup, a Conservative, was beaten by Democrat Max Baucus, 32, a lawyer and liberal state legislator who campaigned on the economy and Watergate. In the state's eastern dis- trict, Democrat John Melcher was elected to a third House term, beating rancher Jack McDonald, a longtime Democratic state senator who switched to the Republican party this spring. With half of the precincts tabulated, the unofficial returns showed Mr. Baucus with votes, compared with for Rep. Shoup. Rep. Melcher was ahead of McDonald with 67 per cent of the precincts counted. Mr. Baucus piled up un- beatable margins in the traditional Democratic bastions of Silver Bow and Deer Lodge where the economy is dependent almost entirely on mining operations of the Anaconda Mining Co., which announced earlier Mon- day it is phasing out its un- derground mining, meaning a loss of hundreds of jobs. Mr. Baucus, a member of a wealthy ranching family, had contended policies of the Republican administration put the burden of fighting inflation on average people while allowing giant cor- porations to enjoy un- precedented profits. He ran ahead of Rep. Shoup also in counties where layoffs in the timber industry have pushed unemployment to 12 per cent Rep. Melcher, a veterinarian, was a bitter critic of Republican farm policies and was a leader in the congressional fight to secure a strip-mining reclamation law favorable to Montana. Women make gains in U.S. election WASHINGTON (AP) Led by governor-elect Ella Grasso of Connecticut, women have won record numbers of state and local elections in the United States officials of women's political groups say. "This was the year of the breakthrough for said Frances Farenthold, chairwoman of the National Women's Political Caucus, about Tuesday's voting. Democratic Congress- woman Grasso, who said her Italian immigrant parents "always taught me you could dare to dream." had a 3-to-2 margin over Representative Robert Steel in becoming the fourth woman elected governor and the first to make it on her own. Women have succeeded their husbands as governors in Texas, Wyoming and Alabama. New York voters elected their first woman to a major statewide office: state Senator Mary Anne Krupsak, who ran for lieutenant- Chrysler to lay off workers DETROIT (AP) Chrysler Corp. has announced it is eliminating second shifts at four car assembly plants later this month and laying off 7.100 workers indefinitely because of sagging auto sales. In addition, Chrysler said it is shutting its Hamtrarnck assembly plant for two weeks starting Nov. 11, temporarily idling some workers. Chrysler, which already has some workers on indefinite layoff, said it was making the shift reductions to bring fourth quarter produc- tion schedules at its six assembly plants in line with consumer demand and inven- tories. Company officials said the layoffs will cut fourth quarter production by cars. governor on a slogan of "she's not just one of the boys." SENATE ALL MALE There will be at least 17 women in Congress, com- pared with 16 now, but the Senate will remain all male. Three major party women Senate candidates trailed their incumbent opponents by' considerable margins. In one of the most publicized contests, Republican Judy Petty lost to Wilbur Mills, chairman of the House ways and means committee. Women won their biggest victories at local and state levels. Among the state legislative winners were Beverly Harrell, madam of a legal bordello in Lida Junction, Nev., and Roman Catholic sister Clare Dunn of Tucson. North Carolina became the first state to elect a woman as chief justice of its Supreme Court. Of the 16 women currently in Congress, three are retiring and Mrs. Grasso quit to run for governor. The women's caucus and other groups had been pessimistic that women could hold their own in Congress because of the candidates' relative lack of money and the number of tight races they entered. The election of five new con- gresswomen was considered a major accomplishment, said Betsey Wright, director of the National Women's Education Fund, "and it looks as if our prediction for a 50-per-cent in- crease in state legislatures may be modest." Liz Carpenter, a founder of the caucus in 1971, noted that it is still difficult for women to win national offices, although there are big gains in the city councils and state legislatures. "The heartening fact is that women now have the courage to run and to she said. WAS AIR CHIEF CHARLESTON. Va.
