Bridgeport Post (Newspaper) - September 23, 1962, Bridgeport, Connecticut TEN BRIDGEPORT SUNDAY POST, SEPTEMBER 23, 1962 mer President Dwlght D. Eisen- hower charged here yesterday that "uncontrolled spending" by the Kennedy administration Is piling up debts that will burden three generations of Americans. Eisenhower noted that Presi- dent Kennedy cautioned in a talk at Harrisburg. Pa., several days ago against returning to "stagnation and inaction" under Republican rule. He defended his own adminis- tration as a progressive one, and said the only progress made un- der Kennedy has been "toward uncontrolled spending and lowardj regimentation." Said the 71-year-old former President: "The budget gets worse and He added that living costs are rising. Inflation has set in. and "our children and grandchildren will be paying debts we are now creating." The average American, he said, now works 5 1-2 hours each day "just to meet his tax bill Cites Own Record He said when he was Presi- dent a billion tax cut was instituted, inflation was checked. 10 million more people were placed under old-age and the space program was con- "This hardly looks like stagna- tion." he snapped.

At stake are the election of 35 jovernors, 39 U. S. senators and i35 House members. They will be chosen Nov. 6 along with housands of stale and local of- icials. By far the biggest prizes are control of the national House of Representatives and the governor- ;hips of five or six pivotal states I'he Republicans concede they lave no chance of regaining con- rol of the senate this year.

For the Democrats, enlarged congressional majorities should mean easier going for President <ennedy's legislative program, vhich was mangled this year.

He first won the office four years ago when most of the country was ng engulfed by a Democratic tide. In California, Nixon can stay alive in politics only by unseating Democratic Gov. Edmund G Brown. Nixon has said repeated ly that he will not be a candi date for the 1964 nomination, al though he is viewed as a pos sible draftee. If he should win and be re-elected in 1968, he could be a prospective contends: for the 1968 presidential nomina tion. In bent Pennsylvania, the incum governor, David L.

By winning, Romney could move among leading possibilities for the 1984 GOP presidential nomi- nation. fn normally Democratic Texas, Vice President Johnson's home state, the GOP is making an ain- L.tious attempt to win the gov- ernorship. Its candidate is Jack Cox. an ex-Democrat, matched against John Connally. Ken- nedy's first Navy secretary and an ally of Johnson. A Cox vic- tory would be a serious political blow to Johnson. In Ohio. Democratic Gov. Mi- chael V. DiSalle. one-time Fed- eral price control chief, is in a tough reelection battle against Stale Auditor James A. Rhodes, the Republican nominee for gov- ernor. THE HOUSE All 435 House members will be elected. These contests will pro- vide the best available barometer ot the Kennedy administration's jopuianry at the ballot box. The House now contains 437 seats because it was enlarged :emporarily to provide seats for Hawaii and Alaska. It reverts to 435 next year. The present line-up Is 262 Democrats and 174 Republi- cans, with one vacant seat formerly held by a Demo- crat. The Republicans must gain 44 seats to have a bare majority of 218 to elect the all-powerful Speaker and put committees under GOP control. Practically speaking, Kennedy has not had a working majority in the House. He has noted a news conferences that many con servative southerners often vote with the GOP and has said that he needs in the House mor Democrats who think like him. Redistricting which resulted from the 1960 census will have ome effect on the makeup of the House next year. But it is not ex pected to have much effect on the party line-up. Nine state gained seats and 16 lost in the reapportionmenl. The major battlegrounds for control of the House are Ihe congressional districts in which Incumbents were elect- ed In I960 by less than 55 per cent of the vole. After ad- justments are made for re- districting, the GOP has 55 of these so-called marginal districts and the Democrats S7. THE SENATE Thirty-nine senators will b> elected in 36 stales, 34 for regu lar six-year terms. Five are seek ing lo fill two or four-year va cancies created by death or re tiremenl. The Senate line-up now is (4 Democrats and S6 Repub- licans. Of the 39 seats to be filled this year, 21 are held by Democrats and 18 by Re- publicans. Seven of the Democratic sea are in relatively safe southei states, although Republicans ai talking boldly of upsetting Se Olin D. Johnston, in South Car Una. The GOP would like to gu six or eight seats to get position to reach for contr of the Senale in the 1964 or 19 elections.
