NEW YORK OP)-On the morn-
ing after his greatest political
victory, John Vleit Lindsay rolled
his lanky frame out of bed and
returned to the pavement he had
been pounding for five months.
It wasn't habit that sent Lind-
say back onto the sidewalks where
he had worn out four pairs of
shoes, but political savvy.
'I told you that if I were elected
mayor, I would come back," he
told a crowd welcoming him in
Brooklyn's Bedford - Stuyvesant
section. "Now I'm back."
This predominantly Negro-and
predominantly Democratic-neigh-
borhood was the first stop on
Lindsay's walking tour to thank
the people for electing him the
103rd mayor of the nation's big-
gest city, his hometown town.
This was the sort of personal
contact with the voters which has
worked magic in the political ca-
reer of the 43-year-old, 6-foot-3,
180-pound, boyishly handsome
congressman from Manhattan's
"Silk Stocking" District.
He never has lost an election.
The Republican mayor-elect was
faced Wednesday with getting this

His election victory Tuesday
over Democrat Abraham D. Beame

Only Four Votes
But Lindsay can be certain of
only his own four votes on the 22-
vote Board of Estimate, the city's
key budget body. The Democrats
have 16, counting 4 each for
O'Connor and the new comptrol-
ler, Democrat Mario Procaccino,
who also ran under Beame's ban-

During the campaign, Lindsay
charged that 20 years of Demo-
cratic rule had "brought the city
to its knees." He pointed to budget
deficits, a water shortage, a severe
crime and narcotics problem,
slums, inadequate transportation,
air pollution, dirty streets and
myriad other problems.
Republican JFK
Sometimes called a Repuglican
John F. Kennedy, he now is being
compared with Fiorello LaGuardia,
the late mayor whose campaign
tactics Lindsay copied in winning
City Hall.
Like LaGuardia 32 years ago,
Lindsay cloaked his Republican-
ism in a multiparty "fusion" or-
ganization, winning Liberal party
endorsement and wooing many re-
form Democrats.
As a consistently liberal con-
gressman, Lindsay frequently had
bolted his party and in 1964 he
disavowed Barry Goldwater, the
GOP presidential candidate.
Thus he wore his campaign
mantle of nonpartisanship so na-
turally that the Democratic can-

didate purchased full-page news-
paper advertisements to remind
voters that Lindsay was a Repub-
One irony of the success of
Lindsay's "fusion" tactics is that

Lindsay, a social registerite, was
born on Manhattan's West Side
on Nov. 24, 1921. As a boy, he
played football under the Queens-
borough Bridge, but he went to
private schools-Buckley School
here and St. Paul's in Concord,
N.H., where he prepped for Yale.
Ivy Leaguer
The Ivy League influence is re-
flected now in his clothing, and
his lifelong interest in athletics
now manifests itself in riding,
swimming, tennis, skiing and sail-
ing. He also mixes in some bowl-
ing and bike riding.
Newly graduated from Yale,
Lindsay served as a naval officer
aboard a destroyer in the Mediter-
ranean and Pacific. He returned
from World War II with five
battle stars and returned to Yale
for his law degree, which he re-
ceived in 1948.

Stokes, Negro Democrat who
bucked the party organization and
came within 2,458 votes of pulling
an upsetin Cleveland's mayoral
race, plans a court action to stop
Mayor Ralph S. Locher's inaugur-
ation Monday.
Stokes, 38, first Negro Demo-
crat ever - elected to the Ohio
Legislature, planned to consult
aides before deciding whether to
seek a recount. But hetsaid he had
to block the inauguration.
"Once he-Locker-is sworn in,
we're out in the cold," he ex-
Stokes added his aides are com-
piling a report on alleged irregu-
larities in the balloting. He would
not cite any specific reports of
irregularities, but said he had
asked Secretary of State Ted W.
Brown for an investigation. Brown,
in turn, said in Columbus he was
suggesting that the Cuyahoga
County (Cleveland) Board of
Elections impound the ballots.
Election board officials said
they had not heard from Brown
but indicated they would go along
with his request.
Political observers, meanwhile,
were studying the vote by which
Stokes, with 3,000 volunteers head-
ed by Dr. Kenneth Clement, a
noted surgeon but political ama-
teur, came close to becoming the
first Negro mayor of the nation's
eighth-largest city or any of the
nation's metropolitan cities.
Locher's margin of 87,833 to
85,375 for Stokes gave the Dem-
ocratic incumbent a margin of
only 1 per cent on the 236,977
votes cast. Republican Ralph J.
Perk and Ralph A. McAllister,
like Stokes an independent Demo-
crat, apparently divided Stokes'
opposition, polling 41,100 and
22,660 votes respectively.
Leaders of the Negro commu-
nity, which accounts for one-third
of the city's 337,803 registered
voters, interpreted the close vote
as a repudiation of Mayor Locher's
policies as much as support for

Richard L. Gunn, attorney for
the United Freedom Movement,
called on the mayor "as a start"
to lift trespass charges against
UFM leaders arrested for a sit in
at the mayor's office last summer.
Negro leaders have been critical
of Locher for his refusal to see
the UFM leaders and for his re-
fusal to discuss with them state-
ments made by Police Chief Rich-
ard Wagner at a legislative hear-
ing in Columbus.
The chief, testifying on propo-
sals to end capital punishment in
Ohio, was quoted as saying the
death penalty was a deterrent to
members of certain Negro ex-
tremist organizations that advo-
cate violence.
Locher, 50, a Democrat who
won by a heavy plurality two years
ago, gave no indication of plans
to make any changes. But he is-
sued a statement saying his first
job is to "bring harmony and
unity to the city."

PARIS-With secrecy befitting

de Gaulle is preparing to tell
Frenchmen tonight whether he
wants them to elect him to a
seven-year presidential term that
would end when he is 82.
The president's message, to be
broadcast at 8 p.m. (2 p.m. EST),
will be recorded a few hours ear-
lier. To guard against any leaks,
the television technicians will be
kept inside the Elysee Palace un-
til the speech goes on the air.
Most Frenchmen think De
Gaulle will be a candidate in the

newspaper polls have indicated
that 75 to 85 per cent of the pop-
ulation expects him to run in the
