WEDNESDAY, MAY 10, 1950 Representative Predicts GOP Control of House BLVTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WASHINGTON, May 10. (&)— A leading House Republican predicted yesterday the GOP will come close to winning control of Congress in the November balloting. For publication, Democratic strategists were saying nothing except that it is too early to make forecasts. Republicans now have 171 House « 1 42 Senate seats. Democrats 'e 260 House and 54 Senate scats. ?re Is one Amerlcan-Laborlte in the House and three vacancies, To have numerical control, a party needs 218 House and 49 Senate seats. Rep. Clarence Brown of Ohio, who managed the GOP Congressional campaign in 1946 when Republicans regained control of Congress after a long dry spell, told newsmen the GOP will "pick up from 25 to 35 House seats and probably five Senate scats in the November elections." While gains of that size wouldn't knock the Democrats out of control, it would make the party division so close that n coalition of Republicans and Southern Democrats could run the show. There always have been some Southerners who won't vote with the Truman Democrats. Picture May Change Between now and November Brown said, the picture may change to such an extent that Republicans could win numerical control of both branches of Congress and wouldn'i have to rely on Southern Democrats, "There Is a definite trend now away from radicalism and the Truman program," Brown said. "Evidence of that is the defeat of Senator Pepper in the Florida Demo cratic primary and the election o a Republican representative from Tjji^as for the first time in more f^Bh twenty years." Brown recently made a survey o the Republican outlook and sail the GOP may gain these Senat seats this year: Pennsylvania, Illinois, Idaho; Cal liorma and Connecticut. House gains, he said, will Includ these: Massachusetts, New Jersey, Mary land, Michigan, Nebraska and Okla homa, 1 seat each; Ohio and Calif ornia, 3 each; Connecticut, 2; Perm sylvania, Indiana, Kentucky. Illin ois, Missouri, Colorado and New York, 1 to 3 each. Rep. Mike Kir wan of Ohio, chair man of the Democratic Congress ional committee, wouldn't.commen on Brown's claims. "It's too early to make any predictions," Kirwan said. "Wait until about six weeks before the election and we'll have some based on more than wishful thinking."
