8 Downtown Section, Thurs., Nov. 21, 1968 A PRODUCT OF Mr New Senate May Ditch Conservatism LADIES' 17 Jewel Watches- numbers a 58-42 Democratic edge in the Senate and 243-192 margin in the Hcuso-do not reveal the ideological makeup of the Congress. The House has been dominated by conservatives the so-called Republican-Southern Democratic coalition since the voters sent 47 new GOP members to Congress in 1966. By ARNOLDS AH ISLAK WASHINGTON (UPI) The U.S. Senate, once regarded as a citadel of conservatism, may belie its reputation in Richard Nixon's Washington. Like the House, the Senate will be organized by Democrats for the 91st Congress starting Jan. 3, 1969. But the PLAY 29 TUNES IN 6 MONTHS EVEN IF YOU DON'T "READ" A NOTE! comers will be expected to fall in with Senate liberals or in some middle ground. Previous voting records or the tone of their campaigns would put Goldwater, R-Ariz., Edward J. Gurney. R-Fla., Robert J. Dole, R Kan., Mar-low W. Cook, R Ky., Henry Bellmon, R-Okla., and James B. Allen, D-Ala., in the conservative camp. Presumed new liberal or moderate votes would be Mike Gravel, D-Alaska, Alan Cranston, D-Calif., Harold E. Hughes, D-Iowa, Thomas F. Eagleton. D-Mo., Charles McC. Mathias, R-Md.. and Richard S. Schweiker, R-Pa. The two other newcomers, question marks in the liberal-conservative spectrum, are Robert Packwood, R-Ore., and William Saxbe, R-Ohlo. Apart from the guessing game, it was notable that of the nine Senate seats that changed parties, only two-Arizona and Oklahoma passed from men with liberal or moderate voting records into the hands of declared or demonstrated conservatives. But the Senate, even with the five-seat gain for the Republicans in 1968, has leaned toward the liberal side despite the control of many leadership and committee chairman posts by conservative Democrats. For example, the Senate In recent past sessions has consistently approved legislation in the antipoverty, education and welfare fields that was regarded as more liberal than the House's product and in some cases more so than the Democratic administration sought. This has been explained as a function of the Senate's constituency-entire states almost always including a big metropolitan area rather than relatively single-Interest congressional districts. There will be 13 newly-minted senators and a returnee-Barry M. Goldwater--on hand to take the oath when Congress convenes. Based on advance indications, it is possible to guess that six of the 14 will vote on the conservative side. At least six of ;he new Here Is the lineup: Arizona-conservative folk hero Goldwater replaces middle ground Democrat Carl Hayden. California Liberal Alan Cranston replaces Republican Thomas Kuchel, a moderate to liberal GOP veteran. Florida Gurney, a staunch conservative, takes over a seat held by George S. Sma-thers, a Democrat who leaned conservative. Maryland Mathias, counted as a GOP moderate, replaces liberal Daniel B. Brewster. Iowa Hughes, expected to be in the liberal fold, replaces old-time conservative Republican Bourke B. Hickenlooper. Ohio Saxbe replaces Frank Lausche, perhaps the most conservative of northern Democrats. Oklahoma Conservative Bellmon replaces liberal to moderate A.S. (Mike) Monro-ney. Oregon Packwood replaces strongly liberal Wayne L. Morse. Pennsylvania Schweiker, rated a Republican moderate, replaces liberal Joseph S. Clark. In states where senators changed- but not parties - the contrasts were about the same: Alaska-Democrat Gravel, expected to be liberal, replaces Ernest Gruenlng, also of that persuasion. Alabama-Allen, expected to be a conservative, replaces Lister Hill, liberal by that state's standards but a middle-ground man on a national level. Kansas-Dole, a conservative in the House, replaces Frank Carlson, a conservative in the Senate. Kentucky-Cook, a presumed conservative, takes over from liberal Republican Thruston Morton. Missourl-Eagleton is ex-, pected to vote relatively liberal as did his Democratic predecessor, Edward V. Long. Also of some note was the success of Democrats who might be expected to align themselves with the movement headed by Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy.
