G, 0, P. EXPECTED TO WIN SIX SEATS Observers See Demo Victory in Only Three Congress Districts in Iowa. EDITOR'S NOTE--Thls slant on Joint's political situation, u-ith special reference lo the outlook in congressional elections, is the work of un observer for the Chl- 'abo Tribune und is being presented here for the interest and information it may contain for (Siobe-Guzette readers. Sometimes the outside view is clearest. DBS MOINES _ The republican party will win a majority of the nine Iowa congressional scats in the fall elections, it is being predicted freely here. The present lineup is six democrats and three republicans. This, the G. 0. P. expects, will be exactly reversed for the next session of congress. Observers see little doubt but that the three present republican congressmen from Iowa will be reelected. They are Lloyd Thurston of Osccola, Fred C. Gilchrist of Laurens and John Gwynne of Waterloo. Thurslon Dean of Delegation. Thurston. dean of the Iowa delea- tion, represents the fifth district. He won in close contests in 1930 and 1932, but in 1934 piled up a margin of 6,000 votes over his democratic rival, Lloyd Ellis of Chariton. Ellis again this year is expected to be Thurston's opponent. In 1934 the majority of Iowa democrats in congress was reduced by the defeat of A. C. Willford of Waterloo by the republican, Gwynne, by 7,000 votes. Willford is attempting a comeback but it is believed that the third district will stay in the G. O. P. column. Gilchrist. in the eighth "district, appears sure of re-election. Ray Murray of Buffalo Center who is retiring as state secretary of agriculture, appears to have an open field to the eighth district democratic nomination for congress. Sure of Sixth District. The republican party appears certain to pick up a congressional seat in the sixth district. Until two years ago a democrat never had been sent to Washington from the sixth. At that time Hubert Uttcrback of DCS Moinea won by 4.081 votes to restore Cassius C. Dowell. Utterback has forsaken the congressional race for a try at getting the democratic senatorial nomination. His move leaves the democrats ] without a strong congressional can. didate in the sixth district, while the G. O. P. has three, Dowell, Mayor Dwight Lewis of Des Moines and Frank Hallagan, attorney. A similar situation exists in the seventh district, which until 1932 had not elected a democrat representative since 1892. In 1932 Otha D. Wearin of Hastings defeated Charles E. Swanson by 12,878 votes Swanson cut the margin to 3,877 in 1934, and republicans are confident they' will defeat Wearin, Henry K Peterson of Council Bluffs probably will be the republican nominee. Jacobspn to Fare Elliott. Another democratic scat which republicans expect to recapture Iowa is in the second district, where Representative B. M. Jacobsen Idem., Clinton), is expected to face Frank 'W. Elliott of Davenport, republican.

PIPE Ohio Is Expected to Reach 'Spondulicks' WASHINGTON, Cincinnati weather bureau wired Washington Saturday it was expecting- the flooded Ohio to touch "spondu- licks" late Monday afternoon. "Spondulicks" is the bureau's code word for 55 feet. in 20 years. Representatives Edward Eicher o Washington in the first, Fred Bier mann of Decorah in the fourth, and Guy M. Gillette of Cherokee in the ninth district are democrats who apparently have the least to worry about concerning re-election.
