DESPITE THE lull, renewed
fighting could erupt at any mo-
ment, front dispatches cautioned.

Whether or not President-elect
Eisenhower will have a Republican
majority in the House of Represen-
tatives was still very much in doubt
as slow returns came in from the
nation at 3 a.m. today.
Based largely on early returns
from the South, Democrats
chalked up 165 seats in the House
while Republicans were climbing
ahead of last night's reports with
127 seats to their credit.
Democrats won their House
seats in Arkansas, Alabama, Geor-
gia, Louisiana, South Carolina and
Texas. A clean sweep for the par-
ty was recorded in RhodeIsland.
Gubernatorial election results
also trickled in gradually with most
of the nation's 29 governor's posts
at stake in the electipn still in
doubt as of this morning.
Prior to yesterday's election, the
strength of the two major par-
ties in the state capitals was about
equally divided-there were 25 Re-
publican governors in office and 23
Democrats. Fifteen Democratic
and 14 Republican governorships
were at stake in the elections.
In one of the few out-state gu-
bernatorial reports compiled, in-
cumbent Ohio Democrat Frank J.
Lausche led Republican Charles
P. Taft by a 380,827 to 311,711 vote
with more than 2,000 polling
places out of 10,877 recorded.
