The turnout
The political pundits washed out on at least
one count yesterday - Americans went to the
polls in greater numbers than had been expect-
ed. But the turnout was far from a record. As
of early yesterday 77,831,251 votes had been cast
for President Ford, Jimmy Carter, American In-
dependent Lester Maddox and independent Eugene
McCarthy. That represented just under 52 per
cent of the voting age population. Figures were
incomplete in more than half the ,50 states, so
the percentage is certain to grow. But compared
to other years, the turnout will be paltry. In fact,
percentages have declined every election years
since 1960. That year, 62.8 per cent of the elig-
ible popultion voted. By 1972, the figure had
declined to 55.4 per cent.
Happy ending
Congress' first husband and wife team, Reps.
Martha Keys (D-Kan.) and Andrew Jacobs (D-
Ind.) were not separated by voters yesterday.
Both were returned to Washington in a surprise
victory for Keys and an endorsement of sorts
for women's rights. Keys drew heat from consti-
tuents for divorcing her husband and marrying
Jacobs earlier this year. Her opponent, Republi-
can Ross Freeman, questioned whether she could
give her full loyalty to Kansas with a husband
from Indiana. But Jacobs' opponent made no is-
sue of the marriage, prompting many women's
rights advocates to complain of a double stand-
ard.
Not so happy ending
Congressman Allan Howe (D-Utah), convicted
last summer of soliciting sex from decoy pros-
titutes, was defeated in his re-election bid yes-
terday. Howe, who claims his arrest and convic-
tion was the result of a frame-up, had refused
repeated party calls for his withdrawal from the
campaign. He was beaten by a Republican ,can-
didate, who had never sought office before, by
58 to 36 per cent. A Municipal Court jury con-
victed Howe last July of soliciting sex from two
policewomen posing as prostitutes. Howe insist-
ed he had gone to the area to attend a politi-
cal rally.
And they don't bite
A werewolf is an accident of birth, the product

of a struggle between God and the devil in cre-
ating the earth. A vampire, on the other hand,
is an accident of death - a deceased human
being whose spirit isn-t at rest because of im-
proper burial rites. That's what most of the resi-
dents of Transylvania believe today about the
legends Hollywood has turned into hairy monsters
and blood-sucking sexual marauders. Dr. Harry
Senn, who sampled the folklore in Romania re-
cently, says Transylvanians regard werewolves
and vampires as a fact of life, but that their
movie image is "immature." Nevertheless, Senn
says he talked to four older persons who told
him people they knew had been compelled to
run into the forest, strip and turn into wolves
befoge" the very eyes of their families.

By GEORGE LOBSENZ
Long after the last election night celebra-
has fizzled out, congressional hopefuls Carl
sell and Ed Pierce are still locked in a
ial dead heat that may not be resolved
two weeks.
The combination of an unusually close race
errors and delays in the tabulation process
t both camps into a tizzy yesterday as they
d to piece together reliable figures.
TALLIES FLUCTUATED almost by the hour,
h both sides giving Pierce the edge early in
day, only to give Pursell an uncertain nod
r on. Throughout the day, Pursell and Pierce

statisticians traded counts, all the while trying
to match up with Wayne, Monroe and Washte-
naw county clerk totals.
As of 5 p.m. yesterday, according to a Daily
tally of the unofficial Wayne, Washtenaw and
Monroe county clerk office totals, Pierce had
95,359 votes to Pursell's 95,388, a scant mar-
gin of 29 votes.
However, neither side voiced much confidence
in these totals last night as confusion centered
on the Wayne and Washtenaw votes.
"WE'RE JUST VERY CONFUSED," said
Pierce. "We just doi't know anything."
"Honest to God, it's just too close to call,"

President-elect Jimmy 'Carter yesterday accepted
hoarse conzratulations from the man he edged out of
office Tuesday, and said their staffs are already mak-
ing arrangements for the tansition to a Carter White
House on January.-'20.
The Georgian, his 22-month campaign finally over,
said President Ford 'called with congratulations at 11:05

ceded the race.

By White House accounts,
For-d went to bed early yester-
day morning without knowing
he had been voted out of of-
fice.
But at an emnptional news con-
ference with his family that left
Carter sublporters feeling sorrow
for the defeated candidate,
Ford, still too hoarse to talk,
had his wife, Betty, read the
concession telegram he sent to
the president-elect:

you have won our long and in-
tense struggle for the presiden-
cy," Ford wrote. 'I congratu-
late you on your victory ...
"Although' there will continue
to be disagreements over the
best means to use in pursuing
our goals. I want to assure you
that you will have my complete
and whole-hearted support as
you take the oathof office this
January," lie wrote.
Ms. Ford told reporters that
"it has been the greatest honor
of my h'irsband's life to have
served his fellow Americans
during two of the most difficult
years in our history."

margin was narrow, although
the results from two states were
still in doubt. With vote totals
from nearly all the nation's
precincts tallied, it stood like

WASHINGTON (M - With
nearly complete results being
tallied yesterday for U. S. Con-
gress and gubernatorial races,
the Democratic Party had
maintained its majority of 62
senators, made a net gain of
one governorship, and was on
the verge of increasing their
290-145 margin in the House by
two.
The nation's voters elected 17
new senators-eight Democrats
and nine Republicansb - in
Tuesday's election but left
President-elect Jimmy Carter's
Democrats in overwhelming
command.
THE NEW Senate will retain
its previous political balance,
a division that probably will re-
sult in eliminating the fierce,
running battles between Con-
gress and the executive branch
1 that highlighted the Nixon and
Ford administrations.

From staff and wire reports
Incumbent Republican Prosecutor William Delhey escapl a
strong challenge from Democrat George Steeh in Tuesday's elec-
tion, and late returns yesterday confirmed Republican Thomas
Minick's overwhelming win over Washtenaw County Sheriff Fred-
erick Postill.
Meanwhile, returns from across the state ensured re-election
for University Regents Gerald Dunn and Robert Nederlander, both
Democrats. The Regents defeated Republican hopefuls Earl Gabriel
and former state legislator David Upton.
STATE SUPREME COURT Chief Justice Thomas Kavanagh,
overcoming a snub from the party he still claims allegiance to,
was assured election to a second eight-year term on the Michigan
Supreme Court.
A Second incumbent, Justice 'James Ryan, convincingly de-
feated Democratic nominee Charles Kaufman for a two-year term.

But Justice Lawrence Lindemer, a former University Regent
appointed to the high court last year and nominated to stand
for election by the Republican party, was in danger of losing his
seat to Democratic nominee Blair Moody in a tight race for the
six-year term. Third party candidate Zolton Ferency was a distant
third.
Democrats were successful in the races for the State Board of
Education, the Michigan State University Board of Trustees, and
the Wayne state University Board of Governors.
Newly-elected members of the State Board of Education are
Gumecindo Salas, director of minority programs at MSU, and
John Watanen, a North6rn Michigan University English professor.
That makes a 4-4 Democrat-Republican split on the State Board.
Board chairman Blance Martin and Lansing law student
Michael Smyrda were elected to the MSU executive body.

'President' Carter: U' reacts

In praise of old age

By LORI GENDELMAN
IJniversity students were gen-
erally pleased about Jimmy
Carter's victory yesterday, and
their reasons most often fo-
cused on a need for change in
government - the Georgian's
campaign theme - rather than
'People talked like
they really wanted a
change in the White
House, but I thought
they would be too
Scredl to vote for it.'

maybe now we'll see some posi-
tive results."
"I'm pleased about the re-
suilt," said David Gordon, a
sophomore. "I'm against both
of them, but Ford got his
chance, and he didn't do any-
thing with it."

Senior Larry Lipsitz said, "I'm
very happy because this will
change the atmosphere of the
executive branch. It's about
time we got rid of the rest of
the Nixon- people."

that "we have a young popu-

thought of growing old," and
that Americans must change
that perception of aging.
Mead said children are often
unable or unwilling toaccept
responsibility for caring for an
aged parent. Instead, they sim-
ply "stack them (elderly par-
ents) up in nursing homes and
let them steadily deteriorate."
