FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.)" COURIER NEWS PACK THREB GOP on Defensive in Eastern U. S. in the Battle for Congress Editor's Note — This is the second of two articles reporting the claims of Republican leaders in 25 key states on how their party will fare in the November election battle for control of Cpngress. By JACK BELL and REED SMITH CINCINNATI (AP) — Republicans apparently will find themselves fighting primarily a defensive battle in the easter half of the country in their campaign for control of Congress. Although they maintained the same outward confidence displayed by their GOP colleagues in 14 Midwestern, Rocky Mountain and Pacific Coast areas, Republicans from 11 key states in the eastern half made far more modest claims in an Associated Press survey. Interviewed at the Republican conference here this week, GOP National Committee members and state chairmen claimed a net gain of 1 Senate and 14 House seats in the eastern half. Their Western colleagues had claimed gains of 17 House and 5 Senate seats in 14 states. This total shift of 31 House and 6 Senate seats seemed to represent peak Republican claims and was open to hot dispute from the Democrats. The present House lineup includes 218 Republicans, 213 Democrats, 1 independent and 3 vacancies. In the Senate there are 48 Republicans, 46 Democrats, 1 independent and 1 vacancy. Jersey is Trouble Spot One of the chief GOP trouble spots in the East apparently lies in New Jersey, where criticism of Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) by former Rep. Clifford Case, the Republican senatorial nominee, has stirred up a revolt among pro-McCarthy members of the party. Democrats expect their nominee, Rep. Charles Howell, to benefit by this but GOP State Chairman Samuel L. Bodine said he remains confident Case will make the political grade. "I don't think McCarthy is an issue in the New Jersey campaign," Bodine said.

Case announced if he were elected he would support a move to strip McCarthy of his Senate chairmanships. Bodine said he thinks that if the Republicans work hard enough they can gain two New Jersey congressional seats. Republicans also may be in trouble in the Ohio race for the Senate seat formerly held by the late Robert A. Taft and now filled by Democrat Thomas A. Burke. Sees Bender Victory Rep. Clarence J. Brown, Ohio j GOP national committeeman, said he thinks Republican Rep. George H. Bender can beat Burke if Ohio turns out its normal GOP vote. But he said the GOP has a fight on its hands. National Committeeman Ralph F. Gates thought Indiana Republicans would hold their own in contests for House seats but some other campaign strategists said privately they fear two GOP congressmen might be upset if economic conditions in the districts don't improve. In Kentucky, Mrs. Stanley D. Pace, national committeewoman, gave Republican Sen. (John Sherman Cooper a "good chance" to thwart the efforts of Democratic former Vice President Alben Barkley to return to the Senate. Politicians generally regard Cooper's chances as among the least favorable of the Republican senators running for re-election this year. National Committeeman G. Mason Owlett was optimistic about the Republicans' chance of gaining at least four congressional seats in Pennsylvania and of holding on to the governorship by a comfortable margin. He thought Republicans might make substantial House gains in Philadelphia. Some other Republicans said, however, their party's chances may not be too good unless there is an improvement in employment in the soft and hard coal regions, in railroads and steel. Given no such improvement, they thought it possible they could lose three seats. In Virginia the Republicans will be fighting to hold on to their three congressional seats which President Eisenhower's victory in 1952 in that state helped them get. However, L. S. Parsons, vice chairman of the GOP State Committee, said he was optimistic the Republicans will hold them and pick up two more in the 2nd and 3rd districts. He and GOP State Chairman Ted Dalton said they think the principal issue will be Eisenhower's program. Maryland's national committeewoman. Miss Bertha S. Adkins. expressed confidence voters will re-elect four GOP congressmen LITTLt LIZ— The only Jock of o« nodes is money. «NEA» WARNING ORDER IN THE CHANCERY COURT, CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT, MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS.

She said two Republican candidates were waging vigorous campaigns in Democratic-held districts that might pay off in the November election. Robert H. Richards Jr.. national committeeman, said Delaware Republicans expect to unseat Democrat Sen. Allen J, Frear Jr. Richards said the major issue is support of Eisenhower's program. Mrs. Charles W. Weis Jr., national committeewoman, said the GOP should keep its 27 congressional posts and win at least one more in New York. H. Meade Alcorn Jr., Connecticut's GOP national committeeman, expects Republicans to re-elect Gov. John D. Lodge and at least five of the state's six congressmen. Alcorn said prospects were "improving" for Republicans to win the 1st District from Rep. Thomas J. Dodd, West Hartford Democrat. Dodd's Republican opponent is Wallace Barnes of Bristol. National GOP Committeeman Ralph H. Bonnell of Boston predicted the re-election in Massachusetts of Republican Sen. Leverett Saltonstall, Republican Gov. Christian A, Herter and eight GOP congressmen. Bonnell said Republicans might win two congressional seats from Democrats in the 2nd and 4th districts. Democrats have six members in congress. Bonnell said Saltonstall's position in the Eisenhower administration in Washington appeared to be an issue.
