Significant Elections Near

WASHINGTON (}P - A signifi-
cant and perhaps close race for
governor in, New Jersey, where a
"battle of the presidents" sparked
an otherwise dull campaign, holds
the spotlight in Tuesday's state
and city elections in a handful of
President John F. Kennedy and
former President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower have tested their influence
in the New Jersey governor's race
by personal visits'into the state to
speak respectively for Democrat
Richard J. Hughes, Secretary of
Labor under Eisenhower.
Eisenhower said a victory for
Mitchell would be a good omen for
the 1962 Congressional elections
and for the philosophy of govern-
ment the former President repre-
Kennedy said a Hughes victory,
would insure continued coopera-
tion between Democratic admini-
strations in. Washington and New
Personal Forays
Kennedy and his White House
predecessor also made personal
forays into New York City to sup-
port their favorites in the may-
oral race between Democratic
Mayor Robert F. Wagner, seeking
a third term, and republican Louis
J. Lefkowitz, state attornrey gen-
fWagner is generally expected to

win over Lefkowitz and city Comp-
troller Lawrence E. Gerosa, a
Democrat running as an independ-
ent. The split in Democratic
ranks was brought out in the open
again Wednesday when Democrat-
ic state chairman Michael H.
Prendergast endorsed Gerosa. Out-
Michigan Race
A new Congressman is being
elected to fill a seat in the first
district, Wayne' County, where
Democrat Rep. Thaddeus M.
Machrowicz resigned to become
a federal judge.
Lucien N. Nedzi, Hamtramck
attorney, is regarded as an easy
winner over Republican Wal-
ter Czarnecki, a Budd Co. em-
ploye, in a district that invari-
ably goes Democratic by big
going Tammany leader Carmine
de Sapio also said he would not
vote for Wagner.
If any indicators for 1962 and
1964 turn up in Tuesday's elec-
tions they most likely will be seen
in New Jersey, a swing state in
the last 10 years. The voting there
and elsewhere will be the first si-
multaneous test of sentiment in
more than one state since the
1960 general elections.

Four vacancies have been filled
in the House and one in the Sen-
ate since Kennedy's election, with
one party overturn resulting. That
was in the special senate race in
Texas last May won by Republi-
can John Tower.
Only one other state is electing
a governor Tuesday. Virginia is
choosing between Democrat Albert
S. Harrison, former attorney gen-
eral, backed by the Democratic or-
ganization led by Sen. Harfry F.
Byrd, and Republican H. Clyde
Pearson, 36-year-old Roanoke at-
torney. Political observers say
Harrison will win by at least a
3-2 margin.
Other elections Tuesday involve
a statewide judgeship race in.
Pennsylvania in which the Demo-
cratic entrant is a woman; state
legislators in New Jersey, Virginia
and Kentucky, and contests for
mayor in scores of cities, includ-
ing Buffalo, Cleveland, Pittsburgh,
Detroit, Louisville and Houston.
Constitutional amendments and
referenda to be voted on include
three amendments in New York
to put the state's credit behind
$650 million in bonds for college
dormitory construction, industrial
development loans, and purchase
of passenger-commuter cars for
lease to yrailroads.

n Texas
Henry B. Gonzalez, a liberal Dem-
ocrat, moved ahead in the race for
San Antonio's congressional seat
last night and a Republican official
conceded the election.
With 40 of the city's 170 pre-
cincts reporting, Gonzalez had
14,202 votes to 10,871 for Repub-
lican John Goode Jr.
Three other Democrats polled
a handful of votes each.
Gonzalez moved ahead as re-
sults of the precincts began coming
in to the county election center.
Goode led in the absentee voting
2,727 to 1,327 for Gonzalez.
Officials of both parties watched
the outcome closely for indications
of two things:
1) Whether Texas became a two-
party state when Republican John
Tower was elected to 'the United
States Senate last May.
2) And whether the vote would
give any indication how other
congressional races might go next
Texas has 20 Democrats and one
Republican in its House delegation.

Malaysia May Pose. Problem for West

Associated Press Newsfeatures Writer
A new problem is sprouting in
the crisis-rich lands of Southeast
This is the Greater Malaysian
Union, so far only an idea, but al-
ready one that could have deep
repercussions, either good or bad,
to the West's position in the un-
easy area.
Malaysia is the brainchild of
Tengku Abdul Rahman, prime
minister of Malaya. He has pro-
posed a confederation of Singa-
pore, Malaya, North Borneo, Bru-
nei and Sarawak.
While separated by water, the
territories have common bonds
with the fast-disappearing Brit-
ish Empire as well as economic
and racial similarities. But it is the
status of the big British base at
Singapore as well as possible Com-
munist infiltration into the pro-
posed union that are causing con-
Key Point
Britain's naval base at Singa-
pore is one of the key points of
the Southeast Treaty' Organiza-
tion's military system. Neither
Malaya nor Singapore are SEATO
Malaya, self-proclaimed as "non-
aligned" although it has a defense
treaty with Britaiji since becom-
ing independent in 1957, says Bri-
tain can use the base only to
implement that treaty and to pro-
tect Singapore. Singapore is self-
governing, but Britain handles its
defense and foreign affairs.
Lee Kuan Yew, Socialist prime
minister of Singapore, is putting
pressure on Great Britain to dis-
continue use of the base for SEA-
TO purposes. Lee, who says his
government is non-Communist but
not anti-Communist, holds a thin
-one-vote majority in the legisla-
ture and presumably adopted an
anti-SEATO attitude under pres-
sure from- the strong pro-Com-
munist left.
To Honor
Britain has said it will honor its
committments to its SEATO al-
lies and will make this clear to
However, the vulnerability of a
fixed base in nuclear warfare has
caused England to seriously con-
sider abandoning its ancient poli-
cy of naval bases in favor of a
more self-sufficient mobile fleet.
This could ease the Singapore

Plan To Visit
Compromise Yields
Coalition Government
BONN (A)-The re-election of
85-year-old Chancellor Konrad
Adenauer was virtually assured
yesterday and he announced plans
to visit Washington as soon as he
forms a new government.
The iron-willed chancellor's elec-
tion to a fourth term became
all but certain when his Christian
Democrats in parliament voted to
accept a compromise agreement
with Erich Mende's Free Demo-
crats to form a coalition govern-
ment. The smaller party, like its
senior partner, is conservative.
Eugen Gerstenmaier, president
of the lower house, last night is-
sued a provisional summons to
parliament to meet Tuesday to
elect a chancellor.
Call Provisional
The call was provisional be-
cause Gerstenmaier had not yet
received a letter from President
Heinrich Luebke nominating Ad-
enauer. But this formality was
expected by tomorrow.
Political observers felt sure Ad-
enauer, West Germany's only
chancellor in its 12-year history,
would be chosen over the opposi-
tion of the Social Democrats and
perhaps. a few delegates from the
new coalition partners.
The Christian Democrat- Free
Democrat coalition commands 309
votes in the Bundestag, or lower
house, while the Social Democrats
hold. 190. The Christian Demo-
crats have 242 seats.
To Visit Kennedy
Adenauer told newsmen he will
go to Washington this month for
talks with President John F. Ken-
nedy on the German and Berlin
situation as soon as he has dis-
cussed international policy with
his new cabinet. He said it would
take another eight days to com-
plete the government.
Foreign office officials said they
believed Kelnedys invitation al-
ready was in the hands of United
States Ambassador Walter C.
Dowling and would be handed over
to Adenauer as soon as he is
Adenauer had been quietly pres-
sured by his allies to settle the
coalition problem so West Ger-
many could join in consultations
on the next move in the Berlin
The acceptance by the Chris-
tian Democrats of the compromise
ended a seven-week struggle. Ad-
enauer's battle for his political
life began Sept. 17 when his party
lost its parliamentary majority in
general elections. He had to seek
outside help to stay in power.
The Free Democrats first re-
fused to serve in a government
under him. They backed down

a coalition with the Socialist Dem-
In the bargaining that followed,
Adenauer promised he would not
serve out the full four-year term
if elected.

Congo Strife First
Issue for U Thant

in the Congo became the first big
issue for the United Nations' new
acting secretary-general, U Thant
of Burma, yesterday as the case
was carried to the Security Coun-
Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister
Valerian A. Zorin, president of the
Council this month, called. on U
Thant to discuss a new request he
had for a council meeting on the
Congo situation. They talked for
half an hour in the secretary-gen-
eral's office.
Convene Council
The request reached Zorin late
Friday night in a letter from
Ethiopian, Nigerian and Sudanese
delegates. They asked him to con-
vene the 11-nation council '"to
consider the situation prevailing
in the province of Katanga, Re-
public of Congo (Leopoldville),
caused by the lawless acts of mer-
cenaries." He was expected to call
a meeting for tomorrow or. Tues-
Ambassadors Tesfaye Gebre-Egzy
of Ethiopia, Muhammad Ngileruma
of Nigeria and Omar Abdel Hamid
Adeel of Sudan did not say, in
their letter to Zorin, what kind of
resolution they wanted the council
to pass.
But Emperor Haile Selassie had
laid down Ethiopia's position in a
cable he sent Wednesday to Mongi
Slim of Tunisia, president of the.
UN general assembly.
Situation Critical
The emperor said Congolese cen-
tral government forces "and the
Xatanga mercenaries have clashed
in combat." He called the situation
highly critical..
The Security Council, he said,
must act promptly to end hostili-
ties and "to ensure the integration
of Katanga into the Congolese
"Clear and unequivocal direc-
tives must be given" to the UN
force in the Congo, he added, and
the council must call for UN pres-
sure on "those colonialist nations
which continue to support the
Katanga secession."
The present UN position, as laid
down in past resolutions, is in
favor of a unified Congo-in oth-

NEW YORK (P)-Trucks driven
by upstate dairy farmers rolled
into this milk-starved city yester-
day and raised a threat that a milk
strike here would spread through

The president of the state Team-

milk producers cooperative for
sending four trucks with 15,000
packaged quarts to Staten Island

mediate problems ahead, notably

While broadly supporting the
