(Studio) Race, war, law and order, and local issues dominate elections. No pattern discernible. John Lindsay defeats law and order candidate in NYC. White Sheriff wins over black accountant in Detroit. Mayor Carl Stokes reelected
REPORTER: David Brinkley

(Cleveland, Ohio) Stokes and wife watch returns on TV. Got 5% more of white vote. [STOKES - says different pts. of city got together in election.] Black vote put him over. White policemen became poll-watchers at black polls. Some complained of harassment from police. Police Chief Patrick Gerity hints at irregularities from Stokes' workers, too. He brushed matter aside. Many whites may support Stokes rather than police, due to their actions.
