1936 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SHECTIONB SECTION OMB NO 28 Both Parties Are Stunned New Lineup Seen as Result of Vote A valanche By CHARLES P STEWART A S H I N G T O N CPA Presi dent Roosevelt was reelected by so much wider a margin than any one really had expected that both party man agements are just beginningto take stock of the situation That is to say the democratic party manage ment is doing so ana the surviv ors of what was the republican management are purveying the ruins and wondering whether anything can be recon structed from them True James A Farley talked about 48 states and John Hamilton mentioned 46 or so but the fact is that up to the last minute the best political judges looked for a lather close election The democrats were as much pleased as the republicans were grieved by the actual result but the democrats were somewhat flabbergasted by the size of it too Was it Democratic The problem is MADRID DATTLES DESPERATELY Martha Bush Golub Gets Three Year Sentence

democracy Another problem is Can the republican party resurrect itself 01 is it asdead as a doornail right cow The commonest one hears is that the victors by the proportions of yirj tually have established themselves as a new political which will become more and more ap parent as such in the course of the ensuing four years and that the I republican party is dead that a Lafayette Freshmen

will be in reality a cleancut liberal party Or a rad ical one depending on ones defi nition Guesses Are Heard Quite a few guesses arc heard to the effect that these folk will j insist upon Piesklent

of liberals and partly of conservatives The same is true of the republican party Party Labels Mixed Individual voters however have continued hitherto to vote as per party labels with little regard for their real convictions They have failed in short to realize that they were all jumbled up In 1916 when Theodore Roose velt ran independently there were hints that the electorate was on the point of a redivision into something logical on each side but the hints failed to materialize There were similar hints which also failed to materialize in 1924 when the late Senator ran independently But this jolt was so violent that it bids fair to jar the conflicting elements apart to settle down into two new groups where they be long Roosevelt Earthquake A naiTOW Rooseveltian victory probably would not have done it But The new liberal group evident ly will be at least as liberal as the new deal The new conservative group as suredly will be considerably more liberal than oldfashioned con servatives were The oldfashioned folk will be left with no place to go Apparently they are nearly ex tinct anyway Kentucky 0 Manhattan 0 Columbia 0 Dartmouth 6 CHILLY DAY FOR FOOTBALL FANS Weatherman Says Skies
