Saudi Foreign Minister Omar Sakkaf gave Kissinger that pro mise after the American secretary of state met for 90 minutes Wednesday with King Faisal in Riyadh He made clear however that Saudi Arabia would not break ranks and cut its prices unilaterally The policy of my kingdom and my government Is that we 1 keep the prices as they are and at the same time work for the lowering of the prices to bring them down albeit sym bolically Sakkaf said And if we could bring them down more than symbolically we would It was the second oilprice promise Kissinger has received on his current tour The Shah of Iran said last weekend he would propose that the posted price of crude oilthe artificialprice on which part of the oil coun tries take is be cut from to a barrel But he indicated that he would do this only if the profits of foreign oil companies were drastically reduced and if the posted price was tied to the price of major industrial goods Speaker Choqfe He wont say L rtifl Rprinhlicans IQJ By Richard H Icen LradsaySchaub News Service Springfield Democrats spent much of Wednesday trying to get used to the huge majorities piled up by their party in the House and Senate on election day At least in my tenure in politics weve never had this kind of majority before the ex ception being the bed sheet ballot atlarge election back in 3964 House Minority Leader Clyde L Choate DAnna remarked Its sure an experience weve never had in our lifetime Sen James Donnewald pBreese assistant floor leader in the Senate said I understand back In the 1930s they had a big ma jority but that was 40 years ago Democrats willhave ma Jorities of at least nine 3425 in the Senate and 27 10275 in the House when the 7Sth General Assembly convenes in January Thiswill be their first clearcut majority in the Senate since 1937 In 1970 the Democrats organized the Senate when each party elected 29 members They have not had a majority in the House since the 1964 at large election when the party elected 118 members on the bedsheet ballot Choatedeclined late Wednes day to formally announce his candidacy for speaker Its something Im not even thinking about yet he said Iguess Ive shown a lot less concern about that than a lot of other people Tuesdays balloting appears to strengthen prospects for a speaker from Downstate At least nine additional Democrats were elected from Downstate districts Choates power base in a bid for the top the House Voters hit most responsive Story on page 5 Although Rep Gerald Shea D Riverside a spokesman for the Cook County Democrat organization has been trying privately to gather support for attaining the office its unknown whether Mayor Richard J Daley will field a candidate against Choate The only an nounced candidate is Rep William Redmond DBenson ville Most Downstate Democrats believe the speaker should come from among their ranks because they expect Senate Minority Leader Cecil Partee of Chicago to be elected President of the Senate Goy Daniel Walkers preferences1 for House and Senate leadership elections is unknown He has had strong differences in the past with most of those prominently mention ed Walker campaigned vigorously for Democrat can didates particularly in Downstate and suburban areas and is credited by party leaders with having a strong impact on the outcome of such races as Jerome Joyces isurprise win over Sen Edward McBroom R Kankakee For Republicans the election was a disaster Three of the leading contenders for leadership posts in the House were beaten among them Speaker W Robert Blair Two others who lost were Rep Richard Walsh of Oak Parkand Jacob JohnWolfrf Chicago Republicans lost three of their minority seats in Chicago to Democrats running as in dependents and currently hold two House seats in just one district the 53rd in the Mattoon CharlestonDahville south of a line from Quincy to Dan ville Democrats carried two suburban Senate seats and could elect two Democrats in House races in from two to five districts in this Republican stronghold Worse from the Republican standpoint are the losses of county offices in such counties as DuPage and Kane bastions of GOP strength almost from the days of the Civil War This is worse than the Goldwater election one Republican House aide to Blair remarked In that landslide at least we kept the Senate and our local offices around the Views of Southern Illinois political observers views or 11 Why did GOP fare so badly at polls m i By Kaen Rothe Of The Southern Hlinoisan Southern Illinois voters went to the polls Tuesday and in flicted severe wounds on the Republican party Why A Republican county chair man says it is because of the national trend away from Republicans due to bad feel Ings about Watergate and the economy A Democratic central com jnitteeman says its because Southern Illinois Democrats put up a strong slate of candi dates A political observer at Sou thern Illinois University at Carbondale says its a combin ation of the two factors Watergate and inflation were two of thebig issues and there was a trend toward the Democrats and away from the Republicans Jackson County Republican chairman Ray Doerr said Doerr said a large part of the Democratic landslide was due to the way the press played Watergate and infla tion The Democratic party is now in the spotlight and on the spot for the public will be expecting solutions from the party about the problems of the economy he said Republicans Val Oshel of Harrisburg defeated in his bid for the district congres sional seat and Norbert Spr inger of Chester who failed to capture the state senate seat were victims of the pub lic mood Doerr said So to a lesser extent was Rep Ralph Dunn of Du Quoin who was reelected to the state house but came in behind two Democrats in the fourman race But Democratic central James Hollo way of Sparta disagrees Candidates of the quality of Paul Simon Kenneth Buzbee Bruce Richmond can go out and win and I think they can win under any circumstances Holloway said Simon DCarbondale was elected to Congress to replace Rep Kenneth J Gray DWest Frankfort Buzbee DCarbon dale won reelection as state senator and Richmond DMur physboro was elected to the state House in the 58th dis trict People actually were vot ing for candidates there just werent many straight bal lots Holloway said You cant just trot any old horse out on the track and expect him to win Wat ergate or not he added Another Democrat John Rednour Perry County Demo cratic chairman also credited better organization on the part of Democrats Rednour disagreed with Os hels Wednesday statement that Simons heavy spending was a decisive factor in his victory over Oshel My feeling is that if Paul Simon hadnt spent a dime he would still have beaten Val Oshel by a lot of votes he said David Kenney of the Public Affairs Research Bureau at SIU thought both Doerr and Holloway were partially right about the reason for the land slide i This is a year in which a distincly good candidate was going to beat a distinctly bad candidate hesaid If there was little differ ence between candidates the Democrat would win However a Republican can didate who offered much more than his Democratic opponent could win an office he said The big money in the Simon campaign probably made some difference but given the stature of the candidate his chances of winning were very great before he spent the first dollar Kenney said he meant sta ture not as Simon related to Oshel but in terms of Si mons previous as lieutenant governor and as a state legislator and his identi fication as a leader on the state and national scene The issue of Simons moving into the district to run was really not an issue at all Kenney said With this election out of the way and a Democratic ma jority installed in the legisla ture we will probably see in creased cooperation between Mayor Richard Daley of Chi and Gov DanielWalk who has Presidential am bitions Kenney said And the possible election of Rep Clyde Choate DAnna as Speaker of the House will depend on the word from Chi cago he said Revolt against Bolivian dictator reported I a Paz Bolivia AP Communist regime the bloody ov i L i i f I l y
