ARBOGAST WASHINGTON Flushed by an upset victory in Wisconsin, Democrats trained their campaign guns today on a special con- gressional election in California Nov. 10. And some Republicans, shinned by Tuesday's reversal that saw a Wisconsin House seat go to the Democrats for the first time, talked of calling on the White House for help. The California election is for the House scat vacated when Republi- can Morris Pouison resigned to be- come mayor of Los Angeles. It's in a district that in recent years has been normally Republican but has swung to the Democrats from time to time. Two Republicans and two Democrats are seeking Poul- son's seat.

"It may wake up the party and arouse us from our he said. "It should be plain that we are gomj to take a beating next year unless we get out and work and do something." Keating said it may be neces- sary for President Eisenhower to take an active part in next year'r congressional campaigning if the Republicans hope to retain their narrow margin of cor.trol in the House. New Lineup The House lineup now is 218 Re- publicans, 214 Democrats, 1 inde- pendent and 2 vacancies, both pre- viously held by Republicans. Another special election is slated in New Jersey next month to fill the House vacancy caused by the resignation of Clifford Case, Re- publican. Even optimistic Democrats aren't making advance victory claims in this but after what happened in Wisconsin they haven't given up hope. Post-mortems continued on the Wisconsin election, in which John- son handily defeated Republican Arthur Padrutt. GOP National Chairman Leo- nard W.

Pressing Problem The secretary said the Mysterious Parcel In Case the housing needs of families in low income brackets. The statement was made by Bor- is Shishkin of the American Feder- ation of Labor national headquar- ters' in a speech read before the National Association of Housing of- ficials convention. Bert Seidman, an AFL staff economist, delivered the speech for Shishkin, who'was unable to come here from Wash- ington. Shishkin is secretary of the AFL's housing committee. Housing needs .of the higher in- come groups have been met for the most part, Shishkin said, but "only by providing housing within the means of the groups who still need housing will it be possible to maintain the rate of construction required to fully meet the nation's housing needs." Shishkin said Federal Reserve Board figures show the annual in- come of the bottom 25 per cent of American families is less than 000. The average U, S. family pays no more than 15 per cent of its income for housing, he said, but even if it paid 20 per cent it could afford a monthly housing cost of only "Not even the staunchest defend- ers of the private home building in- dustry would contend that new housing is available to low income families at that level of world Communism.

He is also charged at Virginia with having so rl a mortgaged tractor. Odegard said Ernsten, married j and the father of two children, was driving a 1953 two-tone cream and blue Pontiac when he arrested near the house where he and his family were slaying at Keewatin. Witnesses to the bank holdup described the bandits' car as a 1951 light blue Pontiac. Odegard said Ernsten had a long criminal record. In Minneapolis, the FBI said vic- tims of the bank holdup would be asked to view the mask and pistol before that agency lakes any act- ion. since the turn of the century.

If a soldier is entitled to tuition or a similar benefit under a fed- eral law, rule or regulation, he is not entitled to benefits under the state law until he has exhausted his rights under the U.S. law, Burnquist said. Among the purposes for which money may be spent is instruction in trade schools in Minnesota for any course the soldier or a child may elect, but such trade school must be approved by the State De- partment of Education. If the school is not a trade school, Burnquist said, then there is no authority for expending the money. The attorney general held that a school that teaches ex- clusively business subjects is not a trade school.
