TUESDAY, DECEMBER 27, 19-19 THE NATION TODAY— Vote Consciousness Gets Firm Hold on Most Congressmen as 1951 Legislative Battle Hears By James Marlon' WASHINGTON, Dec. 37. W-ln another week congress will be back. It will be the start of an important year fol . ,,, ost of tl , 0 grcssmcn, since most of them face the voters before the year is over The seats of all 435 House members, and one-third ol the senate are at stake in Ulc clcctions , lcxt ,»„. So wllnt thcy d[) thls j Be a factor in whether they come back- again in 1051 They know (hat. And a lot off them will hate t 0 (nkc tlH . ir s(an(1 --- .... 1 1. nj ui fit,* im n A mi Hi on the "Fail Deal" program President Iruimn Is going to present to mem. It will be the main fighting point ,n die election campaigns. O' course, some of them, for one •> ; ren.son or another, have their home {Ci- territory so sewed up. that no matter what they do this year they'll s'-iil get re-elected. Certainly a lot of attention will be focused on Senator Taft of Ohio who already Is campaigning for reelection in 1050 and, if he wins, will be a contender in the Republican presidential nomination in 1952. Hut the Democrats, who have a majority in both House and Senate now. want to win even a larger majority in the 1950 elections. Led by President Truman, thcy have ! "eir guns pointed at the electioi date. If they get tiuit big majority— ' that is, Truman's all-out supporters get It—they'll try to whip through the 1951 Congress a goad chunk of his program which fails (o pass in 1S50. Not all the Democrats are all-out rrumanitcs. For instance, the Southern Democrats may support I the President on some things but almost solidly they'll close ranks to defeat his civil rights program. Health Insurance an Issue No one around here is rash enough to predict that Mr. Truman's national health Insurance program has a chance of getting through the 1850 congressional session. It probably won't come up for a vote. Yet, it will be a campaign argument for the Trumanites in the fall elections. And, if thcy win stronger control of .Congress in the elections -•they II probably claim that as a illrance. u,,u mandate to push health Insi -- i — •• ..^t.n-u surance The same goes for the Tafl- Hartlcy labor act, which Senator raft helper! write. When the Republicans bossed Congress In 1047 thcy put that through. But one of the main planks In Mr. Truman's 1948 successful presi- ?, en . l! cam I> ai R n "'as B promise that if he and his Democrats got c of the government T-H control ...*. «j".i-i miifiit, i-tt would bo wiped .out. Labor bnckcct hi in, Then when repeal of T-H came up in Congress in law, it turned out that Mr. Truman and all-out supporters didn't, have enough strength after all to push It through. Since there hasn't, been any change In that strength, It's doubtful the Trumanites will try to re pea! T-H In 1950. But-they then can appeal lo labor again in 1950 and say something like this"We want to repeal It but we need more Trumanites elected So get behind us." Truman Seeks Negro Voles And labor probably will, since bor wants outright repeal and it's • only the Trumanites who promise that much. The most the Republicans are willing to go is some changes in T-H. Mr. Truman in 19JB appealed to the Negro voters of the North with his campaign program for new civil rights laws, such as poll tax repeal antl-lynching, and an FEPC (fair employment practices commission.) The Soutnern Democrats were able to block that in the 1949 session and probably will be able to do so again in 1950. So on that one too the Trumanites can. in the 1950 elections, talk of what they'd do in 1951 if they got more Trumanites Into Congress. This is only part, although a big part, of some of the big issues in this up-coming Congress. But more than ever m 1950 congrc-ismen will have to have one eye on the bills thcy vote on and the other on the voters they'll face. Prices on 1950 Models of Buick Will be Lowered FLINT. Mirh..
