Dems narrowly retain control of
House: lose Senate domination

Republican senatorial candidates
riding high on the coattails of
President-elect Ronald Reagan, the
GOP made a strong bid to take control
of the Senate last night.
By only a thin margin, Democrats
retained control of the House of
Representatives. But their ranks were
badly depleted as Republicans,
propelled by Ronald Reagans landslide
victory, piled up substantial
congressional gains.
Democrats had won the 218 seats
required for control of the House and
were leading in races that would give
them 241 of the 435 seats. Republicans
were threatening to pick up 34 seats.
IN THE SENATE, Democrats
George McGovern of South Dakota,
Birch Bayh of Indiana, and Frank
Church of Idaho were turned out of of-
Ace as Republicans made a sur-
,$risingly strong bid to end a quarter
century; of Democratic domination of
..the Senate.
In all, Republican senators were vic-
torious or leading for nine seats held by
bemocrats, including seven where in-
' umbents were seeking new terms.
SA nine-seat gain would mean
Republican control, since Vice
0resident-elect George Bush would
l ve the decisive vote in a 50-50 Senate.
C The only Republican incumbent in
trouble was Sen. Barry Goldwater, a
pre-election favorite locked in a close
race with Democrat Bill Schulz.
VOTERS TURNED out of office a
top-ranking Democratic House leader,
Majority Whip John Brademas of In-
diana. And dozens of other Democratic
incumbents were trailing as
Republican Ronald Reagan's apparent
landslide presidential victory helped
sweep GOP congressional candidates
into office.

Formally conceding Reagan's vic-
Ptory, Anderson told about 800 suppor-
ters at a Washington hotel that he had
telephoned Reagan with his
congratulations earlier in the evening.
"The returns by that time had clearly
shown that I was not destined to be the
next president of the United States,"
Anderson said.
Then Anderson declared, "That is a
decision deferred."
WITH THAT, the crowd began chan-
ting over andover, "'84, '84, '84."
"Of course, I'm disappointed," An-
derson said. "I'm only human. But I am
not bruised in spirit or in mind."
Returns from around the country
showed Anderson drawing about 6 per-
cent of the popular vote. He needed 5
percent to obtain a minimum $3 million
in retroactive federal financing of his


Democrats were still expected to
cling to the majority command over the
435-member chamber they have exer-
cised since 1955. But Republicans were
whittling away at the margin.
Democrats now hold a 276-159
majority in the House. Republicans
needed a gain of 59 seats to win control.
Christopher Dodd defeated James
luckley, who was seeking to become
the first U.S. senator popularly elected
from two states, New York and Connec-
ticut. Dodd will assume the seat being
vacated by Abraham Ribicoff, who is
retiring after 18 years.
Republican challenger Dan Quayle
of Indiana, a 33-year-old two-term
congressman, defeated Bayh, chair-
main of the special Senate committee
that ,investigated Billy Carter. Bayh
was one of several Senate liberals
targeted for defeat by the National
Conservative Political Action Commit-
Both parties agreed in advance that
the Republicans had scant chance of
taking 10 seats away from the
Democrats, the number needed to win
control of the Senate.
BUT THE GOP mounted strong
challenges against several of the
Senate's most powerful
Democrats-including veterans Frank
Church in Idaho, McGovern and
Warren Magnuson in Washington.
Church is the liberal chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee
and Magnuson is the 75-year-old head of
the Appropritions Committee.
Some of President Carter's staun-
chest allies in the House were among
the apparent losers.
was Brademas,e53, the third-ranking
Democrat in the House, defeated by

Republican John Hiler, 27, a South
Bend businessman.
Brademas, who has served in the
House since 1959, was the author of the
nation's major higher-education-aid act
and played a major role in aid to the ar-
ts legislation.
Among the Senate incumbents win-
ning re-election was Herman Talmadge,
the Georgia Democrat who was
denounced by the Senate last year for
financial irregularities.
Bauman of Maryland, a nationally
known conservative who agreed to un- a
dergo court-ordered rehabilitation
rather than stand trial on charges of
soliciting sex from a 16-year-old boy,

was behind. So was Rep. John Hinson
(R-Miss.) who acknowledged being ac-'
cused of an "obscene act" in a
homosexual hangout.
Congressmen implicated in the FBI's
Abscam bribery scandal were having
mixed success winning new terms.
John Jenrette (D-S.C.), convicted of
on Abscam bribery charges was
awaiting trial on an Abscam indic-
tment, was trailing, as was Michael
Myers (D-Pa.), expelled from the
House last month following his Abscam
bribery conviction.

However,. John Murphy (D-N.Y.)
and Raymond Lederer (D-Pa.), both
under indictment in the scandal, were
ahead in their races.
The only Republican netted in the Ab-
scam dragnet, Richard Kelly of
Florida, was defeated in a September
GOP primary and did not appear on
yesterday's ballot.
Women also seemed certain to in-
crease their ranks in the House. Early
returns showed 11 of 15 women incum-
bents easily wining re-election and two
female GOP challengers in New Jersey
leading in contests to oust male incum-

PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER concedes the election to Ronald Reagan last
night. Accompanied by his wife Rosalynn, Carter spoke to supporters briefly

cover all his $5 million in debts.
MEANWHILE, Carter, flanked by his
wife and the high command of his
vanquiushed administration, told
downcast but applauding supporters at
a Washington hotel:
"I promised you four years ago that I
would never lie to you, so I can't stand
here tonight and say it doesn't hurt. The
M people of the United States have made
their choice and of course I accept that
decision, although not with the same
enthusiasm I accepted it four years
In that 1976 election, Carter narrowly
} ousted Republican President Gerald
Ford. It took all night to settle that con-
test. This time, Carter had conceded
,the outcome and was offstage by 10
p.m. EST.
