New GOP Interest Republican faces were long, the expressions glum, after the last Presidential election. Even though Mr. Kennedy had won by an almost non-existent margin under popular future, from the OOP's conning tower, looked bleak. In recent times all Presidents have been reelected lo second terms with comparative ease, and Franklin Roose- velt, of course, successfully went to the post four times. This pessimism was reflected in the attitudes of Republican Presidential possibilities for 1964. They all started looking away and announcing plans and policies that had no connection with the mansion whose address is 1600 Pennsylvania avenue, Wash- ington, D. C. There was a good deal of talk to the effect that the GOP might just go through the mo- tions in 1965, putting up an expendable candidate whose chances would bfe nil, and devote its real en- ergies and resources toward building for 1968. This is not true any longer. As just about all qual- ified observers of the national scene are saying- whatever their own political faiths and affiliations- Republican hopes are soaring, and a sizeable black cloud of pessimism and worry has moved to the other side of the aisle. In other words, Mr. Kennedy no longer looks like a cinch in 1964. Nor does it look as if the Democratic party is almost sure to have things pretty much its own way in this year's Congressional elections. Several reasons have resulted in that attitude. Time will tell whether or not they are valid, but they exist. One is a feeling thai Mr. Kennedy's elo- quent words have not been matched by he has been a poor performer after the stage was brilliantly set. Another is that he often has accepted bad advice, from men who are out of key with the needs and wishes of the country, and thai this is re- flected in the current restless altitude of the elec- torate. A by far the most important, in the light of practical been the legisla- tive disaster his program has encountered. Whether you are for Mr. Kennedy or against Mr. Kennedy, the record speaks for itself. A box score: The While House placed R stack of blue chips on the proposal to create a Cabinet-level Department of Urban Affairs. It died in Congress. Federal aid to educalion has high Administration priority. The chance of a bill being released to the floor for a vole is exceedingly remote. The respon- sible Committee will, in all probability, see to that, and the consensus is thai Ihe bill would be defeated anyway. But the worst blow of all came on July 17. The Administration had saved its biggest guns for the medicare bill, providing for medical benefits for all persons drawing Social Security payments. When it became clear that the original bill was doomed, a compromise plan was substituted, though it was still based on the Social Securily approach lo the problem. Action was delayed until leaders felt the bill had a good chance. They were wrong. The Senate killed it. On the same day the House voted down a new proposal for production of electric power at the Han- ford, Washington, nuclear reactor plant by a group of public utility districts. This was not an Adminis- tration "must" measure, but it did have Administra- tion backing. Last year a bill for federal generation at the same site was defeated. This series of Administration losses cannot be at- tributed solely to Republican solidarity. The Demo- crats have heavy majorities in both branches of Congress. But the Administration has been unable to firm the Democratic lines, and large numbers of its party members have voted in opposition to measures on which great prestige and authority were gambled. A heavy change may take place between now and 1964, and the hopes of the GOP for making heavy- gains in this year's Congressional ing, even, control of the prove ground- less. Politics, after all, is an art, not a science, and the arts tend to unpredictability. But the hopes are there, and we will see some lively maneuvering in both camps.

The legislative body is Ihcir only buffer againsl what they consider lo be a loo liberal White House and Supreme Court, ['heir defection is not so much a rebellion as a rearguard action vaged by a powerful "Old Guard." In the present century, Ihe South has had only one of its the presidency. But al- Ihough born in Slaunton, Va., Woodrow Wilson had severed his tics wilh lhal area long before he entered poltics as Governor of Now Jersey. Us only member mi the Supreme Court is Hugo Lafayette Black of Alabama, but he is such a flaming liberal that he might have been born in the Bronx or Brooklyn insofar as protection of Dixie's interests are concerned. He seems to be try- ing to live down the days when, as a young politician, he was a nominal member of the Ku Klux Klan. Moreover, the Democrats disinclined lo nominate for Presi dent a man from below the is another story. I view of the present makeup ol Ihe high tribunal, and the con- siderations which usually prevail in filling vacancies, Ihe South cannot look for sympathy from the nine men in the black gowns. The Warren court's decisions have built a wall of precedents againsl Dixie's social and econo- mic structure lhal will be almosl impossible lo upset. Recent polls substantiate this analysis. Despite Republican gains in this section in national elections, polls show lhal the voters do not'permit their Presi- dential preferences to keep Ihem from casting Iheir ballol (or Democratic candidates for House and Senate. They apparently acl on the theory thai, although a Prcsidenl may propose, il is the Congress which has final disposition of his legislative program. And, as the record of Ihc currenl session sug.

I .shall now attempt to sort out md label the Longs. It would perhaps be well to be- ;in this task by separating the Louisiana Longs from the non- rouisiana Longs. This will help he reader to keep them straight n.his mind. Since the founding of the repub- ic, there have been a total of 15 in Congress, plus a Long- ellow, a Longnecker, a Long- vorth and a Longyear. Longs with appendages, how- :ver, are not germane to this ludy and the reader is advised tot to let them muddy the water. Of the 15 short Longs, there lave been 11 non-Louisiana Longs md 4 Louisiana Longs.

The other Louisiana Long to serve in Congress was George S., brother of Huey P. and Earl K., uncle of Russell B., etc., who served in the House until his death.
