the many election-results parties,
gatherings of like-thinking people
for mutual nail-biting and beer
which popped up wherever there
was a TV set.
At this party the mutual thought
was for Kennedy, and pro-Ken-

ran high, and as Indiana went
to Nixon, one partisan muttered;
"Oh well, we'll get rid of those
states as soon as we get in."
"When Nixon loses, he'll pro-
bably get a job foreclosing mort-
gages," someone else said.
Things were not so happy for
everyone in the quiet tense at-
mosphere of the crowded Union
Grill. "I can't say I like what's
going on. What really makes me
mad is that Kennedy is carrying
California," one woman declared.
"After all, it's Nixon's home state.
Besides, I'm from California."
A student quietly studying
American history in the near-
deserted Union lounge had com-
pletely lost interest in the election.
"I know the outcome," he said
sadly. "Kennedy's got Nixon all
the way down the line. I voted
for Nixon, but I'm not too upset."

The Democrats apparently have
swept all other state offices.
In the race for lieutenant gov-
ernor, T. John Lesinski has a lead
of 100,000 votes over his opponent
James M. Hare early this morn-
ing had a commanding lead of
200,000 votes over William E. Kre-
ger in the race for secretary of
state, Republican Wendall A.
Niles trails Paul Adams in the
attorney general contest by 150,-
000 votes. Sanford A. Brown leads
David Calhoun in the race for
treasurer by the same margin.
Otis Smith, trailing the rest of
the state ticket, leads John V.
Clements in the race for auditor
general by 125,000 votes.
The Negro vote is now of some
al importance to the Democratic
arty. And Southern Congressmen
ffected by this vote may tend to
Lre liberal positions.
The election also pointed out
iat the farm vote is becoming less
gnificant, Prof. Peek continued.
You will find the farm areas
sing even more representation
fter the next census."
Prof. James K. Pollock, chair-
an of the political science de-
artment, also said the farm vote
as not of great significance and
iat Kennedy's religion "obviously
dn't hurt him.
