BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Nixon Warns GOP Must Win Congress Or Face Extinction CINCINNATI (AP) — Vice President Nixon, beaming j confidence in public, has warned the Republican National! Committee in private the party must come out on top in the' 1954 congressional contests or face political extinction. If tbe Republicans fail, "the swing is going to be completely to the left and the Republican p&riy -will be as dead as the dodo bird." Nixon said yesterday. His pep talk' to the national committee, holding a workshop conference in Cincinnati, was behind closed doors. But his remarks were overheard by reporters. It public he forecast a record- smashing vote would give Republicans better control of both houses, where they now hold narrow margins. But in private he said: "I think this election is a horse race. I think it is extremely close in the House, extremely close in tfcft Senate. "You could make a pretty good case for a statement that the Republicans are slightly behind in the House, slightly ahead in the Senate. Analyzing it in another way, it can be argued that they are slightly ahead in the House as well as the Senate. It could go either way." Should Follow Ike However, he insisted the election could be won if the candidates pegged their campaigns on President Eisenhower's program of "peace, progress and prosperity." Republicans won in 1952 because Eisenhower symbolized a demand for & change, Nixon said. The issues then were Korea, communism, controls and corruption, • he said. He said he thought the party had given the voters "the change they ! wanted," adding: j "We have brought dignity and j respect to the highest office in this land." Nixon told the party leaders he held neither a "wildly optimistic outlook" nor a pessimistic one. "The Democrats have no great and compelling issue," the vice president said at a press conference. ''The one big issue on which they relied has been pulled out from under them—and that was an economic depression or recession." (/.$.
