kowitz and insurgent Democrat City Comptroller Anthony Gerosa.
White House Says Victories
In East Endorse Kennedy
WASHINGTON tom)-Democratic election victories in New Jersey
and New York were acclaimed by the White House yesterday as an
endorsement of President John F. Kennedy's administration.
Republican National Chairman William E. Miller pointed to GOP
wins in less spectacular areas and said these "clearly show a tide is
running in our favor." Democrat Richard J. Hughes' feat in cap-
turing the New Jersey governorship from Republican former Secre-
Stary of Labor James P. 'Mitchell

"The surprising outcome of the
New Jersey gubernatorial election
Tuesday shows perhaps that less
attention ought to be paid to the
pundits and more to what happens
at the polls," Prof. Norman Thom-
as of the political science depart-
ment said yesterday.
Prof. Thomas attributed the
victory of Hughes over former
Secretary of Labor James Mitch-
ell to "hard effective campaigning
by Hughes and hard work by the
Democratic party. The impact of
President John F. Kennedy also
contributed to the outcome.
"Contrary to what the Repub-
lican leaders say, the people are
not disenchanted with the Demo-
cratic Party or Kennedy. Things
look good for the Democrats in
'62," Prof. Thomas said.
Two other political scientists
thought that former President
Dwight D. Eisenhower was un-
able to transfer his vote getting
power to another Republican.
"Eisenhower is capable of get-
ting himself elected, but he cannot
transfer his popularity to others,"
Prof. George Peek of the poli-
tical science department said
about the New Jersey election.
Prof. John White, also of the
political science department,
agreed that Eisenhower has had
a number of failures in the past
to transfer his vote-getting pow-
ers.
Commenting on the victory of
Mayor Robert Wagner, Prof.
White said that Wagner is in a
strong position to remake the
Democratic Party in New York.
"With the decline of Carmine
de Sapio, Wagner can go about
rebuilding the party. But there
was nothing really surprising
about the outcome." Prof. Peek
said that the result had no un-
usual meaning but that the qual-
ity of the leadership in the Dem-
ocratic Party was not distinguish-
ed.
Must Request
Added Funds
For Defense
WASHINGTON (A) - President
John F. Kennedy said yesterday
he will ask additional defense
funds next year to m'aintain the
United States military position.
Kennedy told his news confer-.
ence that the United States is
obliged to remain the strongest
military force on the earth.
And he declared his confidence
in this country's present position,
saying he would trade it with no
other nation on the globe.
In reference to his recent or-
der that preparations be made for
nuclear testing in the atmosphere,
if this is deemed necessary, Ken-
nedy said this is in order to keep
from being fooled by the Russians.
Kennedy said that while the
United States negotiated in good
faith at the conference table with
the Soviet Union on the possibil-
ity of a test ban treaty, the Rus-
sians were getting ready for the
series of monster explosions they
have unleashed in the atmosphere
since Sept. 1.
"If they fooled us once, it is
their fault," Kennedy said. "If
they fool us twice, it is our fault."

Ice To Head
Group Aiding
Citizen Contact
WASHINGTON OP) - Former
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
will head a new organization to
foster people-to-people contacts
between Americans and citizens of
other countries President John F.
Kennedy announced yesterday.
Kennedy told his news confer-
ence he was "delighted to an-
nounce that Gen. Eisenhower has
agreed to serve as the first chair-
man of the board of trustees of a
new people-to-people organiza-
tion."
Kennedy added he himself con-
siders it "a great honor to be able
to serve as honorary chairman."
The cordial reference to Eisen-,
hower came after a period in
which the former President, back-
ing Republican candidates insev-
eral elections, had sharply criti-
cited aspects of Kennedy's admin-
istration.
Kennedy said the original peo-
ple-to-people organization was
formed in 1956, during Eisenhow-
er's admiiistration, "by a group
of leading American citizens at a
White house conference."

brought this comment from Ken-
nedy:
"That was a good trip to New
Jersey."
He referred to the campaign trip
he made into the state last week
to speak in behalf of the under-
dog candidate :aghes; who beat
Mitchell by a scant 40,000-vote
margin.
The New Jersey contest, which
also brought former Presidents
Dwight D. Eisenhower and Harry
S. Truman into the state for per-
sonal appearances, was the first
major test of strength between
the Democrats and Republicans
'since Kennedy took office last
January.
White House Press Secretary
Pierre Salinger said Kennedy also
was extremely pleased by the out-
come in New York City, where
Democratic Mayor Robert F. Wag-
ner easily won re-election over
determined Republican opposition
by State Atty. Gen. Louis J. Lef-
kowitz.
CORE Cancels
Freedom Ride
NEW YORK 0?)-The Congress
of Racial Equality yesterday called
off, for the time being at least, a
proposed mass "Freedom Ride" in
Maryland and Delaware.
CORE had planned the auto
ride of some 1,400 adherents Sat-
urday along U.S. 40 from the
Delaware Bridge to Baltimore, to
protest segregated highway res-
taurants.,
James Farmer, CORE national
director, said the Maryland com-
mission on interracial problems
had informed CORE that 35
Maryland restaurants would pro-
vide service for Negroes, and
CORE decided to call off the dem-
onstration.

WASHINGTON - Despite the
diplomatic standstill on the Ger-
man issue for several weeks, the
Kennedy administration still feels
that the West must soon establish
some sort of negotiating position.
While the Soviet hierarchy has
been preoccupied with Communist
affairs-the new Russian domestic
social program and the ideological
conflict with Red China, the West-
ern diplomats have been marking
time waiting for a resolution of
the West German political prob-
lem.

Now that West German Chan-
cellor Konrad Adenauer has been
confirmed in office, Washington
