Unless, undetected undercur- rents of sentiment are stirring among a prospective 59 million voters, a survey completed five days before the election indi- cates the Republicans are likely to gain fewer than 30 House seats, pick up perhaps a net of one Senate seat and possibly gather in five or six more gov. ernorships. The GOP can count on gains In one or both branches of some of the state legislatures, the an. alyses indicate, but not on a border-to-border sweep. No single issue stands out as a pivotal one on which the elec. tion outcome will be decided. As is often the case in off-year election, purely local issues are likely tobe decisive in many races. The war in Viet Nam seems to be the greatest concern of most Americans in the autumn of 1966. It has teen talked about, and argued about as a cam- paign issue. But there are no signs it will sway many votes one way or the other. Viet Nam is an immeasurable (Continued on page 11) McNamara Predicts Cut In Draft Calls JOHNSON CITY, Tex.
