J.OGANSPORT PUBLIC L1BRAKT Twelvfe fcogansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribunt GOP Needs Top-Flight Political Strategist By LYLE C. WILSON United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Dec. 27 (UP)— No telling what the Republicans •wanted for Christmas but there is no doubt about what the party needed most. The Republican Party needed a top flight political strategist, a po- Jitical genius type. They are hard to come by. The Republican Party must, however, come by such a leader — or else! Or else refers to the 1958 Congressional elections and beyond that to the Presidential contest oE 1960. There are politicians in Washington who keep not one but both ears to the ground. In this strange posture they have been listening to the grass roots for portents of next November's Congressional polling. Republican ears-to-the ground men do not like what they hear. From what they hear they fear that the Republican Party will emerge from next year's Congressional contest weaker than at any time since the political upheaval of 1926. . Remember RoosCvelt That was .the year in which FDR carried all but Maine and Vermont. The 75tli Congress elected in 1938 consisted of: ' Senate: Democrats 75; Republicans 16; Progressives 1; Farmer- Labor 2; Independent Republican l. House: Democrats 333; Republicans 88; Progressives 8; Farmer- Labor 5; Vacant 1. That was the. low point for the Republican Party since the war between the states. The 85th Congress elected last year consisted of: Senate: Democrats 49; Republicans 47. • . House: Democrats 233; Republi- car- 200; Vacant 2. Differences Pointed Up The consensus is that although | the Republicans are not heading to a new Congressional low next November, they surely will take a bad beating. Thirty-two Senate seats will be up for grabs in 1938, eleven of them now Democratic and 21 Republican. All 435 members of the House must seek reelection or retire. There is a peculiar difference between the political outlook for Senate Republicans and what actually happened in the New Deal election triumphs of 1934 and 1936 which so humiliated the Grand Old Party. In 1934 and 1936 the voters cut down the flower of Republican conservatism. Republican candidates who survived those elections generally were politicians who latched onto FDR's New Deal and promised mostly that they could do it better. Conservatives Listed The voters picked off such Republican Senators as these: Frederick (correct) C. Walcott (Conn.), Simeon Fess (Ohio), Hamilton F. Kean (N.J.), Arthur Robinson (Ind.), Roscoe C. Patterson (Mo.), Felix Hebert (R.I.). and David A. Reed (Pa.). Patterson was succeeded by an unknown named Harry S. Truman. These defeated senators are gone and long, forgotten but they once were among the shock troops of the conservative GOP. Next year it probably will be a bit different. Of the 21 Republican senators whose terms are expiring, the experts generally agreed that only two could be absolute shoo-ins, couldn't be beat. They are Sen. George W. Malone (R-Nev.) and Sen. William E. Jenner (R-Ind.). Jenner has decided not to run again. That, however, does not alter the fact that he and Malone —conservative anti-Ike m e n— alone has it made. FAMOUS PEOPLE WHO DIED IN 1957 Monday Evening, December 30,1957.

Eye Keep your eye on Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. He may play a big part in any move toward a conference between Russia and the western 'allies.

Will Buy Cass County Fair Association Stock DONALD WITMYER Route 4. Phone 4995 suburban and big city. Thursday night is a study in all three types. And strangely enough, all three follow each other not only in respect to time but in terms of sophistication. They are the ABC-TV Pat Boone show and the NBC-TV Tennessee Ernie Ford and Rosemary Clooney shows. The Boone show, like another ABC-TV offering, the Guy Mitn- ell Show, shuns sophistication. Boone is a young fellow with a frank, open face and he has what the ladies call "a nice manner." And they are right: He is nice. But his ABC-TV 30-minuter'lacks the drive and aggressive qualities that the Ford Show (suburban; has to some extent and the Clooney Show (big city) has in even greater degree. Production Flat Fare From the production standpoint the Boone show js pretty flat fare. Thursday night, he sang "AH The Way" in front of a potted plant and "Long Tall Sally" while he was standing to the side of some steps, He gave out with "Stardust" while he stood in front of a guitar player. The dancing on the Boone show is pretty stale and the jokes arc about on a par with the dancing. The Ford show, on the other hand, is a little more glossy. Oh, I know Tennessee started out as a country singer, but his folksi ness is pretty polished by now and even though he'll bless "the little pea pickin 1 hearts" of his audience, he's pretty much a station wagon man right now. The theme of Ford's show is a kind of suburban togetherness and Thursday night, he and guest MacDonald Carey, went through a rather long routine about Christmas presents in a rather slickly furnished living room. Too, there is a singing group, "the Top 20." on the Ford show that are strictly chrome-plated. Thursday night, they did "Lonesome Road," against a stark back; ground with a rather weird tree hanging over the back of the set. It was not the sort of thing you might see on "Ozark Jubilee." Late Evening Manners Rosic Clooney's show comes on late and it has late evening manners.
