PACK TWO T5LYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW* TUESDAY, WOT. 4, 1MB Both Sides Prediciting Victory in Congress But Democrats Have Edge By JOHN* CHADWICK WASHINGTON W—The Democrats carried a numerical' advantage Inlo the showdown battle with the Republicans today for control Victory predictions came from both sides as tile voters began making their choices after listening to weeks of campaign oratory. The outcome was bound to be Influenced by the presidential race figured they definitely had the upper hand In Rhotie Island. Kentucky, West Virginia and Arizona. The Republicans started off with a lineup of 25 seats, again excluding Morse, and to these could be added Payne of Maine end Kmnvland of California. Republicans also were regarded as 'certain victors In Vermont and North Dakota and In Nebraska, imirincu u,j *nv|j*«3*m;ittinttt»»»*-, ._ and. conversely, .to have an Inv. wllcle lwo OOP-held seats are at ponant bearing ori the success of the next president's administration. At stake In today's balloting are 31 of the 86 Senate seats and 432 of the 435 House sots. Maine elected a Republican senator nnd three OOP House members on Sept. 8. The House, where the Democrats now outnumber the Republicans 230 to 200, has rarely run counter to the presidential tide. Capitol authorities said that only, twice— In 1848 and 1876— has an Incoming president been faced by a House controlled by another party. The Senate 'presents a dlHerent picture. Numerous Republican senators conceded privately that It probably would take an Eisenhower landslide for them to capture the Senate. v The Democrats now hold 49 Senite seats— the bare minimum necessary for control. But only 14 of their seats are on the block and five of these are in the Democratic •outh. : The Republicans have 46 scats, not counting Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon, who "resigned" from the stake. This leaves 20 key contests lo be fought out. Fifteen of Ihe 20 seals Involved In rnces In 19 states now are held by Republicans. Barring a major upset elsewhere, the Republicans must hold all 15 of these seats and win three ol the five others lo clinch control ot the Senate.

"We have worked so long lor these things, and we believe so thoroughly In them, It «eems that success muet come." Afler some 60 days, 50.005 miles, some 200 speeches ami seeing nnrt being seen by millions of Americans, Iowa-born Mamie Elsenhower appeared surprisingly rested, poised and apparently was enjoying even the last hectic phases of camplgn- Ing. . The trouplng potential /irst lady carried on at a fast, disciplined pace throughout a tightly scheduled day, which started with a two- hour (our of Boston and Its suburbs —much of It In an open convertible and In a rain r.fcorm.

Knowland of California was assured of re-election by winning Ihe Democratic as well as the Republican nomination. The Republicans won control of both the House and the Senate in 1946 for the first time since the Hoover administration, riding into power on a wave of discontent over meat shortages and postwar economic controls, but they lost 11 two years later. Four senators swept Into office on the ; Republican upsurge six years ago — the famous' "Class of '46".- Tbda'x's"' balloting brought 'a first test of voter reaction to their records.

FOR ROAD ICO HOMY - Concrete it the economical pavement for two-lane federal, state snd county roads as well as for heavy-duty highways. Rigid concrete pavement is moderate in first cost yet can be designed accurately for any legal axle load— and it will keep its load- carrying capacity throughout its long service life, Concrete costs less to maintain than other pavements as proved by average coat figures from official records of 28 State Highway Departments that report maintenance figures by type of surface. Concrete highways also last longer than other pavements M proved by studies published by the Highway Research Board. Moderate first cost -f low maintenance cost + long life - few annual cort. With iow-onnvoF-cof* concrete less money is dissipated on maintenance, leaving more money for new construction. PORTLAND CEMINT ASSOCIATION *1« Folli Mdfl., MUmpMi 3, T*mt.
