Seventy-Four Years of Editorial Freedom















A campaign directed at "all Americans" gained re-
election for President' Lyndon B. Johnson. His first full
term in the White House will carry on this theme,
University observers predict.
Since the assassination of President John F. Ken-
nedy, Johnson has been working with the Kennedy
cabinet. Now that he has been elected, he is expected
to make changes in the new cabinet.
According to Prof. Ferrel Heady of the political
science department, director of the Institute of Public
Administration, Johnson will "give special recognition
to some Southerners in the cabinet," as part of an
attempt to make the South an integral part of his

Saunders is known for his relatively liberal stand on
civil rights.
After his cabinet is filled, and the Congress meets,
Johnson is expected to attempt to have a number of
programs initiated including Medicare.
This is likely to be the major item of Johnson's
legislative program, according to Prof. Norman C.
Thomas of the political science department.
Heady added that an extension of the War on
Poverty, especially in Appalachian redevelopment, will
be called for. Johnson's other programs in the area
of domestic policy include the Hart-Udall proposals to
preserve untouched wilderness areas and an attempt
to provide tax exemptions for college students' expenses.
These amount to a continuation, with some extension,
of domestic policy.
Further legislation, Thomas observed, is expected to
favor business.

"Wewill be in for a period of more vigorous eco-
nomic growth than we have had for several years,"
Prof. Paul McCracken of the business administration
school said. Even though the Johnson administration is
expected to reduce this year's federal budget by $500
million, the nation's capital investment rate is expected
to increase by 10-12 per cent in 1965.
McCracken foresees a more rapid labor force in-
crease. "We will regain the ability to operate at full
employment," he continued.
In the long run, he expects the nation's rate of
economic growth from 1963-1970 to be 50 per cent
higher than the 1953-1963 rate. In the short run,
McCracken expects there will be a rise df some five
per cent in business activity this year. "This growth
rate could carry all the way through to the end of

Democrats scored major gains in the House and picked
up a few Senate seats yesterday as President Lyndon B. John-
son's 'coattails helped them score numerous upsets across the
nation. One of the upsets, if fragmentary returns prove cor-
rect, may be in the local U.S. House race. Michigan's juniorf
senator, meanwhile, easily won re-election over his Republi-

Garners History's
Largest Plurality
Goldwater Loses Four Key States;
Runs Strongly Only in Deep South
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-Running powerfully everywhere but in
the deep South, Lyndon B. Johnson last night won the Pesi-
dency in his own right, defeating Sen. Barry Goldwater by the
greatest popular landslide in history.
As of 3:30 a.m., Johnson had captured some 62 per cent
of the nation's popular vote, shattering the 60.8 per cent rec-
ord set by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1936.
The popular vote totals, state totals, and electoral vote
totals (270 needed to win) with 84 per cent of the nation's
votes counted: Popular vote: Johnson, 36,007,935; Goldwater,
22,382,226. States: Johnson, 44; Goldwater, 6. Electoral votes:
Johnson, 486; Goldwater, 52.
While his vote percentage set a record, Johnson did not
