Big Shakeup
Expected in
By The Associated Press
LANSING-The state Legisla-
ture may change direction today.
Democrats are expected to be-
come the majority party for the
first time in 26 years-due pri-
marily to a Democrat sponsored
legislative redistricting plan, which
followed landmark guidelines laid
down by the ,United States Su-
preme court last June.
Today's election also will pro-
duce the largest crop. of freshman
legislators in recent history-due
to redistricting and the increas-
ing of the Senate from 34 to 38
seats. Even if all incumbents are
returned to office, a 47 per cent
turnover is assured.
GOP Concedes
Democrats expect the new equal
population districts to give them
at least 60 of the 110 House seats.
Many Republicans also have con-
ceded the House to the Demo-
The Senate could be a 19-19
standoff, although some Demo-1
crats say it can go as high as
21-17 in their favor with a large
turnout and a landslide for Presi-
dent Lyndon B. Johnson.
Republican State Chairman Ar-
thur Elliott, however, hasn't given
up either chamber to the opposi-
tion. He has predicted a slight
GOP edge in the Senate and the
House. i

Anything over 60 seats will re-

Republicans now lead 58-52 in
the House and 23-11 in the Sen-
Who does take over will depend
on a large number of "swing"
districts--where one party or the
other holds only a slight edge,
based on past voting patterns.
House Speaker
Democratic House members
have been jockeying for the po-
sition of speaker-a post reserved
for the majority party - for

governor was that he did not want
to be in the House under a Demo-
cratic majority. He lost that race
and is now candidate for secre-
tary of state.
It will be only the third time in
state history that the Democratic
Party took over the Legislature.
Franklin Roosevelt's defeat of
Herbert Hoover in 1932 and his
landslide over Alf Landon in 1936
carried an unprecedented number
of Democrats into the state House.
Tied GOP
Democrats ruled the House 60-
40 in the 1937-38 session, and tied
with the Republicans, 16-16, in
the Senate.
The change in party alignment
is due to a Democrat-drawn leg-
islative reapportionment plan ap-
proved by the state Supreme Court
last summer in the wake of a
landmark decision of the United
States Supreme Court.
The decision said both houses
of a state legislature had to be
districted on a strict population

borough in President Johnson's
home state. Despite predictions
that the President will easily carry'
Texas a smoldering feud between
the liberal Yarborough and con-
servative Governor John Connally
(Dem.) may permit Bush to join'
fellow conservative Republican
John Tower in the Senate.
Yarborough is one of the most
pronounced liberals in the Senate,
the only southern senator to vote
for the Civil Rights Act. Like
Democrats elsewhere he hopes to
ride Johnson's coattails to victory.
Connally, one of the President's
closest friends, is not working for
Yarborough. Some of the gover-
nor's associates have even come
out for Bush. The popular gover-

nor is expected to bury his little-
known opponent Jack Crichton
(Rep.) in the gubernatorial elec-
Other important races across
the country include:
Dodd (Dem.), a liberal acceptable
to Goldwater Republicans because
of foreign policy stands is expect-
ed to defeat John Lodge (Rep.),
ward Kennedy (Dem.), who has
not campaigned at all because of
a broken back suffered in an air-
plane accident this summer, is
the overwhelming favorite to bury
his unknown opponent, Howard
Whitmore (Rep.). However, John
Volpe, a moderate Republican who
barely missed winning the gov-
ernorship in 1962, is making an-
other strong challenge. His op-
ponent is Francis X. Belloti (Dem.)
brother of Henry Cabot.
NEW JERSY: Senator Harrison
Williams (Dem.) is favored to de-
feat his moderate Republican op-
ponent, Bernard Shanley, former
Appointments Secretary to Presi-
dent Eisenhower.
Scott (Rep.), Scranton's campaign
manager in San Francisco, is run-
ning for his political life because
Goldwater won the nomination.
His opponent, Genevieve Blatt,
state secretary of internal affairs,
stands a good chance to ride in on
Johnson's coattails.
RHODE ISLAND: Republican
Governor John Chafee, a strong
Scranton supporter last summer,
is a slight underdog in his race
against Democratic Lt. Gov. Ed-
ward Gallogly.

ald Lagueux.

Republican is running against
Democrat'Hulett Smith. The re-
sults are in doubt. Senator Robert
Byrd (Dem.) is expected to defeat
Republican opponent C o o p e r
TENNESSEE: Both senatorial
seats are at stake in the Volun-
teer state. Sen. Albert Gore
(Dem.) a liberal and sponsor of
the administration's Medicare bill
in the Senate expects to win with
some opposition from Daniel Kuy-
kendall (Rep.). Representative
Ross Bass (Dem.), a liberal who
voted for the Civil Rights Act
survived a strong challenge from
Governor Frank Clement and is
expected to win over Howard
Baker, Jr. (Rep.), Everret Dirk-
sen's son-in-law.
