Majority in Both
. . j.
COUMBCS. O., Oct. 30.
Whan the next congress convenes
the republican majorities in both
housos will show large Increases,
according to a pre-election state
ment issued here tonight by, Con
gressman Simeon D. Fess of Ohio,
chairman of the national repub
lican congressional commissee.
His forecast; based on an an
alysis of reports from all congres
sional districts in the country is
that the republican margein in the
house will be increased from 45
to. at least S7, and that of the
senate from two to a minimum of
eleven, and possibly seventeen,
giving that body a nafe" majori
ty. According to Mr. Fess estimate
the next house wll have iu its
membership not less than 261 re
publicans and not mora than 174
democrats, and the senate will be
publicans and from 24 to SO dem
publicans and rom 24 to 30 dem
ocrats. In making this forecast. Con
gressman Fess declared that, so
far as the bouse is concerned, 27
states are included in the "sure"
republican column. He estimated
these states will return 229 re
puolican congressmen a gain of
twenty from those states.
In doubtfut states with. repub
lican leanings, among which he
included Maryland, West Virgin
ia, Kentucky. Missouri and Colo
rado. Mr. Fess predicted that 23
republican congressmen will be
elected; three in doubtful states
with democratic leanings (Nevada
Arizona, Oklahoma. Montana and
Newj Mexico), and five members
from certain democratic states,
including Virginia. North Caro
lina, Georgia. Florida. Alabama.
Tennessee, Texas, Mississippi,
Louisiana and Arkansas.
Certain republican senatorial
gains are predicted by Mr. Fess to
rtsult in the Maryland. Kentucky,
South Dakota and California elec
tions. Senate races in Arizona and
Colorado, he said, present better
than an even chance for republi
can success, while in Nevada and
Oregon change from democrat to
republican senators is considered
by him as an even chance. He
also declared there is a possibil
ity ot the election or republican
senators in Oklahoma and North
