Resigned his Senate seat four days early, allowing Gov. Meldrim Thomson, Jr. to give a fleeting appointment to Louis C. Wyman, the loser of a very close election against John A. Durkin. Briefly appointed back to his old Senate seat in 1975, so Durkin and Wyman could conclude their ongoing struggle over the seat with a special election.
