Wyatt Finds Cheer In Vote
SPRINGFIELD, ILL. Wilson Wyatt, Gov. Adlal Stevenson's
campaign manager, found a cheering note on a day when most of
the Democratic party was feeling
"The total popular vote cast
that heretofore received by any
he said. "The great outpouring
thing to all Americans."
Wyatt, who refused to concede defeat until the last vestige of
hope disappeared, held a final news conference at which he said he
and Stevenson's aides were unanimous in the belief that Stevenson
would head the Democratic ticket in 1956.
Eisenhower To Have Friendly Congress
WASHINGTON President-elect Dwight Eisenhower probably
could count Thursday on a friendly Congress to underwrite the do
mestic and foreign policy changes mandated by the volcanic erup
tion of votes that gave him the presidency.
The friendliness of Congress Republican by only one vote in
the Senate and thus far by only two votes in the House lay in the
'warmth of regard for the general shared by Southern Democrats
in the coalition with Republicans which has controlled legislation
for the last four years.
Although most of the Southerners publicly supported Gov.
Adlal Stevenson, there was little doubt that -many of them felt more
closely aligned to Eisenhower's views on domestic problems than to
those of the Democratic nominee.
All Counties Go Republican
LINCOLN All of Nebraska's 93 counties appeared to have
wound up in Eisenhower's column.
Saline County, which has been on the side of the Democratic
residential nominee for at least the past 24 years, swung over
giving Eisenhower 4,092 votes and Stevenson 2,748.
Two neighboring counties, Sarpy the smallest in land area
and Douglas the largest in population remained on the winning
side in the presidential race for the 10th consecutive election.
Since 1916, the two counties have voted with the nation in se
lecting the president. Only in 1944 was there any danger that
Sarpy would break its winning streak. That year, Sarpy gave the
late Franklin D. Roosevelt the majority by only 13 votes.
Dewey Cinch For Cabinet Spot
WASHINGTON Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York appeared
to top the list from which General Eisenhower will pick his cabinet.
Sen. Fred A. Seaton of Nebraska; defeated Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge
Jr. of Massachusetts; John Foster Dulles; Gov. Sherman Adams of
New Hampshire; and Sen. Frank Carlson of Kansas are also in
cluded. Gov. Earl Warren of California has been mentioned as a
possible choice for attorney general.
Morse's Vote Becomes All-Important
WASHINGTON Senator Wayne Morse of Oregon is silent on
how he will vote when the time comes for distributing Senate com
mittee chairmanships and the like. His position assumes new im
portance because the Senate includes 48 Republicans and 47 Democrats.
The Wednesday 4 o'clock meeting was cancelled because ot
