THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 1050 BLYTIIEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THKEX Chairman of GOP Voices Optimism Gabrielson Predicts Party Will Control Congress Next Year WASHINGTON, Jan. 19. (/T)—Republicans got a prediction from National Chairman Guy G. Gabviclson yesterday that tlioir party will win control at congress In November. The occasion was a parly eatltcr- ing. sort of a pocket-sl/e national convention, called to draft a 1050 campaign platform. Gahrielson tied his prediction to an "if" in tliat connection. . He said tlial if the GOI' comes t it with a "definite, sound and con- incing" declaration of principles it will strengthen the pavty in Uie November voting "and give us once again working majorities in both Senate arid House." Oahrielsbn also said in a prepared welcoming address that Republican senators and representatives wiH be called upon to "implement our declaration by legislation." Tills seemed to put tlie national chairman at odds with some GOP members of Cunnie.s-s. 'I'liese members have been insisting that .the proposed statement of party principles uo couched In such broad terms that it would nol affect their votes on bills pending before Congress. Among others, Senator T'aft (II-' Ohio) has said any declaration worked out by the Senate policy drafting group of which he is chairman would not tteal with specific measures before Congress. At the same time, Senator Millikin of Colorado, chairman of the conference of all Republican senators, made it plain that any declaration of policy will have to have advance approval of candidates before it is adopted. The seats of 12 Republican senators are at stake in November and Milligan told a reporter all of them will get a crack at the platform before it r,oes before Uie envire Senate Republican membership. . About every possible viewpoint on (domestic and foreign issues is rcp- flfc'seulcci among the dozen senators. ^^T- I Love My Doctor, " By Evelyn Barfcin* TUB SI'OKVl J.b» *mt I tr»rl>wr4». .*•*• fc*« !•»< *• \ Lainly democracy should begin at *e( up •» •««•€ I" *«r boill »y work at law .

I gravely outlined my plan: John was to make the bed and do Uie breakfast dishes in the morning, and f, upon my return from school, would tnke it up from there. The idea itself was sound. Cer- Ues, it seems only ailing that they each share some of the burdens at a mutual establishment. But if the idea was sound In theory, in practical demonstration it completely overlooked the fact lhat a man's best defense against ousework Is his inept application. ohn was as compelent in this eld as Albert Mnstein Is in brick- aying.
