Prentiss Walker says his party assured the seats of Mississippi's predominately Democratic congressional delegation.  Walker, running against Democratic Sen. James Eastland in the Nov. 8 general electi(m, spoke at a GOP fund-raising dinner Monday night along with State Rep. L; L. McAllister, GOP candidate for Walker's 4th District seat.  "The Republican Party "is re^ sponsible for seating the Mississippi delegation during the 1965 challenge by the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party", Walker said.  He said only 19 House Repub-Ueans failed to vote for Missis  sippi re^esentatives — Walker and four Democrats—to retaki their seats in the challenge of the predominantly Negro Freedom Democrats.  He added, "Mr. Eastland ^ys that a two • party system will ruin our way of life in Mississippi B^t I am convinced that he means it will ruin his way of life.  TWO-PARTY SYSTEM  "We badly need a competitive two-party system in Mississippi to hold both parties in line.**  On anti - poverty programs. Walker said, "When you give people something through make-work programs, why should they seriously consider constructive work?  "We are creating a nation of! beggars and freeloaders through the giveaway programs of the Great Society."  McAllister, who opposes Dem. ocratic State Sen. G. V. Montgomery, said Mississippi voters were concerned about "a no-win policy in Viet Nam, runaway inflation, wasteful spending, misman^ed poverty programs, high mterest rates, federal interference in local school affairs and government coddling of looters, rioters and black-power advocates.  "The only way which they have to express this concern is by voting Republican in November."  Release Report On Mississippi Crops  JACKSON, Miss.
