Marshall HG NEW DEAL MAJORITIES IN HOUSE UNPRECEDENTED The Congressional elections of No/ember 8 smashed all political prece- lents in definitely establishing the 'act that the people appiove the loosevelt Administration of national ,fFairs and desire its continuance. The esult not only guarantees a Deino- :rutic majority in the Senate until !M3, reganllc'.ss of the outcome in !MO and 19-12. Moie significant, it va.s the first time any party in the nation's history ever carried the louse of KL'pre.sentatives by enor- nous majorities, four times in a row. ^ot since Andrew Jackson's time, a entury ago, has a President been ustained in four national elections, wo Piesiduntial and two mid-term. And the proportionate majorities un- er Old Hickory were much smaller han under Franklin D. Roosevelt in 932, 193-1, 1930 and 1938. In mid-term elections held dining Tiore than 50 years, the party in lower has regularly suffered ex- remely heavy losses in the House of lepresentatives. With only one ex- eption the lotss exceeded, and usually las far exceeded, 15 per cent of the larty membership in the preceding louse. On two occasions the lugs has cen more than 50 per cent. The single exception \vaa the shattering iverturn of 1U3-1, when the Demo- rats actually inureiii-cd their repre- entation in the House. In 1929, after four years of abso- uto conttol in Washington, the Republicans were riding the crest of the vave of synthetic prosperity with a louse majority of 103. Then came he collapse and tlieir Hou^e member- hip steadily and progressively fell rom 208 to 88, a loss of more than '5 per cent. They lost 54 seats in 930. Their loss had reached 151 in he election of 1932; 106 in 1934 and Inally 180 i-eats by 1930. As forecast by the Democratic Na- ional Congressional Committee, Dem- }cratic losses this year were far too mall to influence the reorganization if the House in January. They were olcly in Districts which were ovcr- ivhclmingly Republican up to 1924; all were seats never before anything ut safely Republican.
