Tydings’ Victory Is

Conceded By Mahoney

Maryland Primary Loser Promises To Support Fight To Unseat Butler

George P. Mahoney con- ceded defeat yesterday by former Senator Millard F. Tydings in last Monday's close Democratic senatorial primary race.

He sent a telegram to Tydings “expressing my best wishes for victory in the general election” and promising support. In re. sponse. Tydings predicted that “with the two of us working together” the Democrats could recapture the seat now held by Republican Sen. John Marshall Butler

Mahoney said “it not now appear reasonable” to an- ticipate that the official results would change the outcome of the election.

Both candidates received 76 unit votes. Such a tie is broken on the basis of the popular

does

vote. Tydings won on the basis of a margin of about 7500 votes over Mahoney |

The officials canvass of the yotes has not been completed

Mahoney said that neither he nor his aides has contemplated asking a recount. “I have sim- ply been awaiting the outcome of the official canvass,” he said in a statement issued at Balti- more. “In the present case.

I felt it was only common sense to rely on official figures

“Although that canvess is not fully complete, it does not now appear reasonable to anticipate any significant change in the) election results or to further delay this statement.” |

Reached at his vacation re] treat at Hot Springs, Va.. Tyd-' ings said he was gratified by’ Mahoney's telegram. Asked about his campaign plans, he said he “hasn't given them a thought yet.” |

Mahoney, in his statement,’ said that he and his supporters had hoped to avoid a serious primary contest “to further the Democratic Party's chances for victory in November.”

With Tydings’ entry in the race tha: “proved impossibie,” he continued, at which time resolved to conduct a campaign which would create no per- manent division in the Party “That mech, at least, has been accomplished,” ‘ye said

Tydings received word of Ma- honey’s concession statement after returning from a round of golf.

He referred to Mahoney, a Baltimore paving contractor, as “a marvelous vote getter.”

“Both Mr. Mahoney and |! conducted a campaign without any bitterness,” Tydings said “His sportsmanlike request of those who supported him in the primary to vote for me in the general election is greatly ap- preciated. ... I want to thank Mr. Mahoney for conducting a high-type campaign and for his generous offer of support to all Democratic candidates in the coming election.”

Canvassing of the meanwhile, added to Tydings’ margin. In Baltimore's Fifth District unofficial returns had given Tydings a 405-vote edge, but the official figures in- creased his lead by 200 votes.

Major Parties Sweep To Victory in Primary

By Grace Bassett Sta Reporter

The local Democratic and Republicaw organizations’ scored decisive triumphs over! independent groups in the elec-! tions to city committee posts,’ official figures released by the District Board -of Elections showed yesterday. )

Partial unofficial returns had been available on national com-' mitteemen and delegate races,) the results of which were con- firmed by the release of the official count. Figures in the cily committee races were re- leased for the first time yester-

ay.

All but two of the 26 elected to Democratic Central Commit- tee in the May 1 voting were indorsed by the existing cfty| organization. The only two to win without Committee indorse- ment were Independents Robert R. Nathan and George L. P.) Weaver, who ran as members of Americans for Democratic Action in support of a liberal platform

Of the 24 others, 21 were in- dorsed by the Stevenson organ- ization as well as the city com- mittee. Three Kefauver sup-| porters also won city committee indorsement. They are Small- wood E. Williams, Frank D. Reeves and Esther L. Cooper- smith

All 25 of the elected Repub-|

lican State Committee were on the official Committee slate Two candidates indorsed by in surgent George P. Lamb trailed badly

Though trailing -major op- ponents by nearly 10,000 votes, Lamb asserted the 8000 Wash- ingtonians who voted for him 'were “forceful proof” that the Old Guard needed revitaliza-

ition

Lamb's “attempt to ride on the

coattails of Committee candi: dates.” He said the election) results showed the confidence | of Republicans in their organi- zation.

More than 75 per cent of the registered voters went to the polis in the city’s first election in 82 years, according to Newell Ellison, Board of Elections chairman. He estimated the total vote at 45,601,

Of these, 23,888 were Demo- crats and 21,713 were Repubili- cans.

Democrats polling biggest totals were Mrs. Todd Duncan, with 17,842 for a Committee seat; and Margaret Just Butch-| er, who led the race among con- vention delegate candidates with 17,306.

On the Republican ballot, Robert V. Fleming scored 18,553 for local committeeman; and Samuel Spencer, 18,101, for convention delegate

The tally showed that dele- gates pledged to Adlai Steven- son maintained their 4-to-1l lead over those pledged to Sen Estes Kefauver.

J. C. Turner, president of the local Stevenson for President Club, said the “overwhelming victory for Stevenson” was im- portant because of the repre- sentative population of the Federal city.

“Is Able to Deliver New Weapon Almost Anywhere, He Says

By John W. Finney United Press

The Navy's carrier - based

‘planes are capable of deliver-

ing a hydrogen bomb attack on enemy targets. Adm. Arleigh A. Burke,

Chief of Naval Operations, stated this emphatically in an

view, the first official acknow!l- edgement that the Navy could deliver the H-bomb. Hereto- fore, the Navy has claimed only A-bomb capability for its car- rier planes.

The interview was granted before the emergence of the Air Force's latest differences with the Administration over whether the Navy can fill in gaps in this country’s strategic bombing capabilities.

But the Navy claims appar- ently were in President Eisen- hower's mind when he cited the “tremendous” airpower of the

Navy as one reason it is not’

necessary to match Russia in production of land-based inter- continental bombers.

The Administration position, also voiced by Defense Secre- tary Charlies E. Wilson, has been challenged indirectly by Gen. Nathan F. Twining, Air Force Chief of Staff. Twining told a Senate Appropriations Subcom- mittee Friday the Navy's stra- tegic striking power would be “small” because the range of carrier-based planes is “rela- tively short,”“and because naval airpower would be largely ab- sorbed at the start in winning control of the air

In the interview Burke was asked whether, in the light of the Administration's increasing
