Michigan Senator Hailed by Many to Save His Party. By the Associated Press. GRAND RAPIDS. Mich., November B —Some 30 years ago a youth named ! Arthur Vandenberg lost his job be-. cause he marched in a Theodore i Roosevelt parade. This week, the same Arthur Hen- i drick Vandenberg didn't march in a \ Franklin D. Roosevelt parade and be- j cause he kept his job as United States j Senator from Michigan, he is being | hailed by many Republicans to save their party. While Republican Senators were falling all around him, he won a 45,000-vote victory over Frank A. j Picard, a formidable Democratic op ponent. But Senator Vandenberg. although his political stature increased tremen dously overnight, is making no claims. Asked what would be his program for 1 the Republican party, he countered by ! avowing loyalty to the present leader- j ship. In campaign utterances and in a post-election statement, he emphasized j the need for "liberal Republicanism.” j Should he be called upon to lead his , party, he undoubtedly would borrow j heavily from the political philosophies . of Alexander Hamilton and Abraham ; Lincoln, whom he considers the "greatest Americans.” When his youthful enthusiasm for Theodore Roosevelt cost him his job as a billing clerk, he got another one on the Grand Rapids Herald and at the age of 22 became editor and gen eral manager. -• CLAUSE HELD VOID IN BANKRUPTCY ACT Frazier-Lemke Amendment Ruled Confiscatory by U.
