And in the House, the current figure Is 2f5 Democrats. 171! Republicans, two seats vacant. That means the GOP Would need a net gain of -10 House scats to assume control there. And no matter Imw the favored Nixon fares against Democratic presidential nominee George .MeGovcrn on Nov. 7. that Democratic head start appears just too great. In the euphoria of the Republican National Convention, party leaders and campaigners said they could achieve a Congressional takeover. But look back eight years, to the greatest presidential landslide of the era, when former President Lyndon B. Johnson trounced Republican Sen. Barry Goldwater. In that Democratic runaway, the Republicans lost 38 House SEN.

And even a reversal of that magnitude would not produce GOP control in the next Hcusc. Realistically, the Republicans believe they can capture a net, gain of 20, perhaps 22, House seats this time. ALL 435 HOUSE seats will be at stake in the 1972 elections. In the Senate, the arithmetic is different. Nineteen seats now held by Republicans are al stake, 14 now held by Democrats. "We need just five seats, and there are 14 Democratic seats up for election," Sen. Peter H. Dominick of Colorado told the convention. "I believe we can do it. "I think we're running ahead and they are running away from their Democratic presidential nominee." he said. But again, the arithmetic is against the Republicans. They must defend five more seats than the Democrats. Two years ago, the lineup of Senate elections heavily favored the Republicans. In that election, there were -.1 Democratic scats at stake. and only nine held by Republicans. The White House decided on a maximum effort, in terms of money and manpower, recruiting Republican talent from the House to challenge the Democratic Senate seats. The Republicans wound up with a net gain of two seats. Tliis time, they would have to pick up five, for the 50-50 split that would give Vice President Spiro T. Agncw the decisive vote to put Republicans in Charge. One politician with close ties to the White House said even with a Nixon landslide, the most! likely outcome is a Senate con-j trolled by Democrats, but by a slender, two or three vote mar-1 i If thai is the outcome. he| said, the Republicans would tryj to turn it around by courting conservative D e m o c r a t s in hopes of gaining party switches, after the manner of Sen. Strom Thurmond, who crossed the aisle when the conservative Goldwater tide was running among his South Carolina constituents. THK FIRST "likely object of such R e p u b l i c a n overtures would be Sen. Harry F. Byrd .Jr. of Virginia, who left the, party of his forebears to run as: ar. independent in 1970. but vot-! ed for Democratic leadership on! Land Cruiser ! Dangerous, C. U.
