WASHINGTON - Richard M. Nixon guarded a thin lead
early today as he and Hubert H. Humphrey were virtually
deadlocked in their tense presidential race.
While Nixon held an ,edge in the all-important Electoral
College, the lead in the popular vote see-sawed between the
Republican and Humphrey.
With 76 per cent of the nation's precincts reporting, Cali-
fornia seemed to hold the key. Assuming both candidates win
the uncertain states leaning to them (Humphrey: Pennsyl-
vania, Texas, Washington, Maryland, Missouri; Nixon: Illi-
nois, New Jersey, Ohio) the outcome in California would de-
termine the Presidential Winner. Only 26 per cent of Cali-
fornia's precincts have reported with Nixon leading .narrowly.
With 76 per cent of the precincts reporting, Nixon's to-
tal was 24,558,985 or 43 per cent; Humphrey's total was 24,426,-
837 or 43 per cent; Wallace's total was 8,288,131 or 14 per
