No change in races for House Demos still hold edge Ry KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Service PRINCETON N of the latest trial of voter preference for candidates for the House of Representa tives shows Democratic candi dates running ahead of GOP candidates by a whopping 128 per cent margin This is slight ly bigger than the margin they racked up in the 1958 Congres sional elections when they swept the nation with a whop ping 12 per cent margin Todays results are of special interest because they indicate clearly that the GOP vice pres ident must run well ahead of his partys con gressional candi
