By The Associated Press
LA PAZ, Bolivia-Air Force Gen.
Rene Barrientos took over the
presidency of Bolivia alone last
night one hour after formation of
a co-presidency had been an-
nounced.'
Barrientos, vice-president in the
overthrown regime of Victor Paz
Estenssoro, told a cheering crowd
from a balcony of the national

palace that Gen. Alfredo Obando
Candia, commander of the armed
forces and earlier named as co-
leader, "has decided to resign in
order to cooperate in the re-
establishment of tranquility in the
country."

Obando had made the an-
nouncement after the army ap-
peared to have gained firm con-
trol of the capital following a
night of rioting.
The fighting between soldiers
and supporters of Paz, who fled
to Peru after his ouster Wednes-
day, left possibly 40 dead and
about 150 wounded.
Paz placed the entire blame for

his downfall on Barrientos. He
said that Barrientos wanted to be
president "so he rounded up air
force and army support and over-
threw me."
Obando had also announced
formation of a cabinet, whose
members took oaths of office im-
mediately.
Named foreign minister in the
new cabinet was Lt. Col. Javier
Centeno Anaya, dean of the arm-
ed forces staff school.
IMeanwhile, in Montevideo, Ur-
uguay, ex-Bolivian President Her-
nan Siles Suazo, who was ousted
from that country a few weeks
ago, said he will return at once
"to contribute to its pacification
and stabilization.
Hiles succeeded Paz to the presi-
dency in 1956 but broke with his
former politiical mentor earlier
this year. Paz had the law chang-
ed so he could run for office again
and Siles objected and was exiled.
Paz' ouster Wednesday appar-
ently cleared the way for Siles'
return.
Much of the rioting in Bolivia
during the night was blamed on
Bolivians celebrating the downfall
of a president many called a dic-
tator.
Barrientos broke with Paz last
month after the government
cracked down onhwhat it called
Communist-inspired uprisings by
students in La Paz and tin miners
in the mountains to the south.

WASHINGTON -- Liberal Con-
gressmen are starting two move-
ments to change their position in
the next Congress.

Ford Faces
Today
SeAt 10 A.m.
DETROIT (-) -Ford Motor'
Company faces a 10 a.m. strike
deadline today in local disagree-
ments with 19 United Auto Work-
ers' bargaining units.
Local-level negotiators raced
against a 10 a.m. deadline this
morning in trying to reach settle-
ments with United Auto Workers
leaders at 19 of Ford's 90 bar-
gaining units.
UAW spokesmen said any locals
which have not reached agree-
ment with Ford by that hour may
then apply to the UAW national
offices for strike authorization.
Aides at UAW headquarters said
the machinery for the possible
local strikes had not been finaliz-
ed and that it had not been
determined whether any locals
would go off the jobs at the ap-
pointed hour.
"I don't think that any of the
local strikes would begin before
Monday," a UAW public relations
aide said.

are going to make a strong bid
for more recognition for leader-
ship positions in Congress, par-
ticularly in the House.
Strengthened House liberals are
also planning full steam ahead on
a projected party purge of South-
ern Democratic congressmen who
supported Republican presiden-
tial candidate Sen. Barry Gold-
water (R-Ariz).
With only a few contests un-
decided, the political makeup of
the House in the new Congress
apparently will be 295 Democrats
and 140 Republicans-a gain of
38 for the Democrats and a loss
of 38 for the Republicans.
245 Democrats
An analysis of the voting rec-
ords of members returning and of
factors involved in the defeats of
others points to an ideological
House lineup of perhaps 245 lib-
erals and 190 conservatives, who
have almost never supported ad-
ministration bills.
That should assure smooth sail-
ing for the legislative program of
President Lyndon B. Johnson in
the first Congress he must deal
with as a President elected over-
whelmingly in his own right.
However, some returning South-
ern Democrats who saw Republi-
cans make inroads into Southern
Congressional ranks last Tuesday
may have misgivings about con-
tinuing to vote for Johnson pro-
posals, particularly since the
President's name will not be on,
the ballot in 1966 when they must
run again.
"We may lose around 20 South-

ern Democrats whoisually vote
with us," a Democratic official
said privately. "After all, they
must look to their own futures."
On the other hand, the over-
whelming defeat of Goldwater and
the defeat of many conservativej
House Republicans may cause a
change in the voting patterns of
the house GOP forces. In the
past there have been some 10 to
15 Republicans classified as lib-
erals.
None of them failed to win re-
election. Their ranks could be
slightly increased in the new Con-
gress.
Liberals in both parties are con-
centrating on three major com-
mittees in their bid for a stronger
voice in policy making circles in
the House. These are the rules,
appropriations and ways and
means committees.
One of the five Republicans on
the Rules Committee, Rep. Kath-
arine St. George (NY) was de-
feated Tuesday. She seldom sup-
ported proposals of Democratic

presidents, and Liberal Republi-
cans are expected to make a
strong bid for her committee seat.
They also will stake a claim
for one of the three Ways and
Means seats lost by Republicans.
Vacancies
On the third major committee,
appropriations, there will be eight
Republican vacancies. Most of the
non-returners were conservatives.
Just how far the Republican
liberal group is prepared to go to
enforce its demand for recogni-
tion may be determined by a
huddle scheduled for the next few
days.
In the Senate, the prospects' for
success for the Johnson program
are even brighter than in the
House. Final returns point to a
net gain of two seats for Demo-
crats, giving them an edge of 68
to 32 over the Republicans.
Even in the pre;sent Congress,
the President had little trouble
with the Senate. His big headache
was the House, where a conserva-
tive coalition blocked some of his
most controversial programs.

MOSCOW OP) - Premier Chou
En Lai of Red China, who stormed
out of Moscow three years ago
because of Nikita Khrushchev's
policies, returned yesterday in a
Soviet-Chinese atmosphere chang-
ed by the shift in Russian leader-
ship.

Chou arrived at the head of a'
delegation of Chinese experts on
the bitter dispute that has divid-
ed Peking and Moscow. Other
Communist leaders from through-
out the Red world also were gath-
ering here for secret talks.
Ostensibly, the Communist lead-

ers were coming for celebrations
tomorrow of the 47th anniversary
of the Bolshevik Revolution.
While neither China nor Russia
has yet given much ground in the
arguments between them-and
while high sources indicated there
would be no change in the Soviet
Union's position in an effort to
close the breach with China-
there was general expectation
among non-Communist observers
that Chou's meetings in Moscow
will result in agreement to keep
the dispute private.
On the other hand, neither
side has yet given much ground
in the arguments between them,
and word from Hong Kong and
Tokyo is that Peking has adopted
a wait-an-see attitude.

DETROIT-The Michigan Press
Association yesterday sent a tele-
gram to President Lyndon B.
Johnson urging him to exert
"moral pressure" to end Detroit's
three - and - one - half - month -
old newspaper strike.
WASHINGTON-With all but
about 1400 of the nation's 175,843
polling units counted, the total
vote in Tuesday's presidential
election fell far short last night
of the predicted 71.1 million.
With 68,795,537 votes counted,
President Lyndon B. Johnson had
won 42,187,722 to Sen. Barry
Goldwater's 26,607,815.
WASHINGTON -- The nation's
total employment rose 300,000 to
71.1 million in October, and un-
employment held steady at 3.3
million, the Labor Department
said yesterday.
Both figures were expected for
this time of year but represented
a considerable improvement in
the employment picture over a
year ago, a spokesman said.

Detroit and other geographical
areas. Now that we have won con-
trol of both houses of the state
legislature, it is important that
we have good communications."
- According to latest figures,
Democrats led 73-37 in the House
and 23-15 in the Senate-due to
a Democrat-sponsored legislative
reapportionment plan approved by
the Michigan Supreme Court last
summer and the Johnson land-
slide.
The redistricting, the Sept. 1
primary, Johnson's showing, and
expansion of the Senate from 34
to 38 seats triggered a 55 per cent
turnover in the legislature-pos-
sibly the largest in history. Fifty-
four incumbents will occupy the
110 House seats and 14 return to
the Senate.
Both Romney and Democratic
leaders have pledged an all-out
effort at harmony. Democrats say
they will use their majority power
more kindly than the Republicans
did and will be ready to work with
the opposition.
Romney said he would "do
everything in my power to pro-
mote bi-partisanship. If the effort
is reciprocated, I feel we can set
new records of progress."
He said the Republican party
must "broaden and unify." At
the same time, however, 'Romney
must seemingly broaden and unify
his own administration program,
even beyond party bounds, to have
a chance for a successful second-
term record.
The governor insisted that he
"has notj considered" seeking the
1968 nomination. He said a draft

to discuss."
