N By FRED DALY
Demo Senate Assured
Democratic control of the Senate has been assured by a victory
by Richard L. Neuberger over Republican Senator Guy Gordon in
Oregon. Neuberger's victory gives the Democrats 48 seats in the
Senate, plus the support of Independent Oregon Senator Wayne Morse.
Hairline decisions in some states left the possibility that official
recounts of votes might shift the picture. In New Jersey, Republican
Clifford B. Chase wound up 825 votes ahead of Democrat Charles R.
Howell with the absentee ballots unaccounted for. Even a sure victory
by Case would give the Republicans only 47 votes, one short of the
place where Vice-President Bixon could break a tie in their favor.
Representative Sam Rayburn of Texas, who will become Speaker of
the newly-Democratic-confrolled House, said he and Senator Johnson
of Texas, the Senate Democratic leader, have pledged they will co
operate with the Republican President on matters "in the interest of
the American people."
Collins Sent To Viet Nam
President Eisenhower has sent General J. Lawton Collins to Indo
china on a mission to determine how to help divided Viet Nam from
falling completely to the Communists. Collins, former Army chief of
staff, will have the rank of ambassador and will serve as a special
representative of the President.
The trouble-shooting task assigned Collins is expected to result In
recommendations by him to Eisenhower for extensive American opera
tions designed to stabilize South Viet Nam and bolster the government
of Premier Ngo Dinh Diem. ,
Eisenhower has several hundred million dollars available for spend
ing to prop up South Viet Nam against Communism if Collins can
come up with a program which will persuade the government and
Congress of a reasonable chance for success.
Schweitzer In Norway
Dr Albert Schweitzer, home to Norway to accept the Nobel Peace
Prize awarded him in 1952, said the horrors of the past must lead rar.4
to "hope for the coming of an era in which there will be no war."
The world-famous humanitarian said man must abolish war for
ethical reasons. ' He added that the United Nations is doing much for
peace but is incapable of bringing an end to war.
In his acceptance address the 79-year-old doctor, philosopher and
musician warned that man has become a "superman" who is growing
poorer and poorer through his own power of destruction.
New York Investigates Frauds
New York Republicans, paced by State Attorney General Nathaniel
Goldstein, launched a sweeping investigation of reported voting frauds
in the state's gubernatorial election as Averell Harriman's fragile
margin of victory bounced up and down with unofficial re-canvass
Unofficial reports give 2,554,185 for Harriman and 2,534,528 for
Senator Irving M.J.ves, the Republican candidate. The Harriman
total included 261,266 Liberal Party votes.
Republicans are pinning their hopes of upsetting his election on the
official recanvass. Election boards, must make their final reports by
