Verdict to come on nov. 8 Fate of great hinges on reelection of 48 democratic freshmen in Congress by Raymond Lahr Washington up the Fate of president Johnson s future great society plans rests largely on the political survival of the 48 democratic freshmen who Rode his coattails into the House in 1964 democratic land slide. The verdict won t come until americans vote nov. 8. But a Survey of up s slate capital bureaus shows this pattern As the off year election Campaign enters its final six weeks gains Are indicated particularly in congressional districts now represented by the 1964 democratic freshmen class. Evidence so far indicates no tidal wave which put the gop within reach of con trolling the House or help it top ple very Many democratic governors arid senators. The Senate is securely democratic. A Republican pickup of 30 to 40 House seats could mean Trou ble for the democratic administration however. That would re activate the old coalition of re publicans and conservative South end democrats and menace John son s great society. The presidency 15 governor ships and 65 Senate seats Are not at stake this year. The voters will elect 35 governors and 35 Sena tors. Of the governorships at stake 20 now Are held by democrats arid. 15 by the 35 Senate seats 20 also arc held by democrats and 15 by republicans. All 435 seats will be filled in the House. It now stands at 294 democrats and 139 republicans with one vacancy for each party. The up Survey indicates Only minor shifts in sight in the party lineup of governors and senators. It also indicates that most of the vulnerable democrats in the House Are among the 48 freshmen. In regard to Connecticut the up Survey said demo cratic gov. John n. Dempsey favored for re election. All six democratic congressmen believed Safe except rep. Donald j. Irwin. He faces former rep. Abner w. Elbal whom he unseated in 1964. N 1964, democrats unseated 48 House republicans while re Publ leans displaced 10 democrats for a net gain of 38 seats. The result gave the democrats a House mar Gin of More than 2 Tol and meant easy sailing for most of the Johnson legislative program especially in 1965. The record contrasted with the monumental struggles in the House Between 1961 and 1964. Iowa was a conspicuous example of the 1964 upheaval. The democrats elected six of seven House members in the state which had a solid gop delegation 10 years earlier. Five of the Lowans Are freshmen and this year All Are involved in contests rated As close. Republicans also have a few vulnerable seats scattered around the country. But in general party leaders believe that gop Mem Bers who survived the 1964 land slide Are As Safe As anything can be in politics. Challengers favored off year elections traditionally favor the challengers. In the 13 mid term elections since the House was enlarged to 435 Mem Bers in 1912, the outs have gained an average of four seats in the Senate and 36 in the House.
