Increase Margin ini Alaska by 16%;
x Republican Hall Cites Local Issues
JUNEAU, Alaska (P)-Alaska Democrats scored an overwhelm-
ing victory in Tuesday's "straw-in-the-wind" election, on the basis of
mounting returns yesterday from all parts of the territory.
The outcome assumed the earmarks of a virtual landslide for leg-
islative seats. Congressional Delegate E. L. Bartlett, remarking that
"Alaska almost always has pointed the way the nation will vote in
November," made this forecast:
"This makes it thoroughly sure the Democrats will organize the
national House of Representatives by some 30 seats."
The Democratic delegate led the way for the party by winning a
sixth term by a margin of 21/2 to 1.
Bartlett drew 72 per cent of the vote in his race with Mrs. Barbara
Dimock, legislator. It compared
with the 56 per cent vote he polled
Forsth in 1952.
