MNUUMM Democrats Worried GOP Has Chance Of Winning Senate Races WASHINGTON (AP) - The legacy of a landslide falls due next year and, ironically, it poses a problem for the Democrats who won it. Democratic senators who won their terms in former President Lyndon B. Johnson's electoral blitz of 1964 must run again in 1970, and the Republican National Committee says the GOP has a chance of winning control of the Senate for the first time in more than two decades. Democratic analysts are frankly worried. Normally, an off-year election produces congressional gains for the party which does not control the White House, but in 1970 the arithmetic and the circumstances could work against tradition. 33 SEATS There are 33 Senate seats at stake, 25 of them now Democratic, only eight Republican. Democrats now control the Senate, 58 to 42. But a gain of eight seats--making the parties election withstood the undertow ven--would put the GOP in!of Sen.

Agnew would cast the decisive vote in a tie, *Tequently. an off-year election casts the presidential party in a defensive role. But the Democrats are not sure that will be the case next year. One official at the Democratic National Committe already is advising Sen. Fred R. Harris, the chairman, that the party should brace for a GOP on the offensive. This Democratic strategist maintains the party should map its, campaign plans on the assumption .that ; President Nixon will suceed in settling the two biggest problem.

DECISIVE FACTOR Outside the Deep South, only five Democratic senators elected in 1964 ran ahead of the Johnson ticket. The others, presumably, benefitted from the presidential returns. In four of their victories, Democratic analysis believe, the coattail power of Johnson's massive showing was the deci sive factor. The Senate elections they pul in this category are those ol Sens.
