rm WlrM MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY FFRBIIAOY 11 1UA To Copy 1 Revised Atest proposal made by Eisenhower MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY FEBRUARY 11 fouf WASHINGTON Wl President Eisenhower announced Thurs day a new fourpoint US plan for international restrictions on nuclear tests Aimed to break the deadlock with Russia it would exempt low power underground test ex plosion from the proposed ban No worry for Demos in House Voter opinion gives party big advantage By KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Service PRINCETON N the latest trial heat of vot er preference for House of Rep resentatives shows Democratic candidates running ahead of Re publican candidates by at least as big a margin as they racked up in the 1958 election What should be of deep con cern to GOP leaders across the nation is that todays findings would indicate that Democratic candidates would do consider ably better today than they did in the 1956 congressional elec same year that Presi dent Eisenhower racked up his impressive victory over Adlai Stevenson Todays survey results are of special significance because they provide an excellent indi cation of the basic strengths of the two major political parties across the nation less than nine months before the allimportant 1960 elections THIS NOVEMBER every seat in the House of Representatives plus each states electoral votes for president as well as about one of every three Senate seats will be up for grabs Heres how the vote went in the latest survey with adult cit izens in all walks of life The question If the elections for Con gress were being held today which party would you like to see win in your own dis Republican or the Democratic party The results Democrats55 Republicans42 Undecided 3 With the undecided eliminat ed the results are Democrats 567 Republicans 433 In 1958 the Democrats won control of the House of Repre sentatives by the big margin of 129 seats while picking up 56 per cent of the popular vote TODAYS FINDINGS thus in dicate that sentiment for Demo cratic congressional candidates is at least as great as it was in November not a bit greater When todays opinion is stacked up alongside the nation al congressional vote of the past elections the trend looks like this Popular Vote Mouse Seats GOr Dem GOP Dem 19JS 463 j37 171 190 407 oOS 190 233 1952 49R 302 221 213 47J2 5258 203 232 inrS 4Sfi 235 560 133 282 From the above table it can be seen that the GOP was un able to win a majority of the popular vote albeit they did win a majority of the House seats in 1952 in the last six nationwide congressional elections Even in 1956 when Dwight D Eisenhower won so impressively over Adlai Stevenson the Dem ocrats were able to win control of the House by a majority of 35 seats Todays findings would seem to indicate that barring some thing unforseen the House of Representatives is very likely to remain Democratic come No vember At Geneva Switzerland where the US Russia and Britain have been negotiating a test pro hibition for more than 15 months the plan quickly was rejected by the Soviet bloc It was called a backward step IN A STATEMENT Eisen hower said the new proposal would end forthwith under as sured controls the following types of explosion 1 All nuclear weapons tests in the atmosphere 2 All nuclear weapons tests in the ocean 3 All such tests in those re gions in space where effective controls can now be agreed to 4 All tests beneath the sur face of the earth which can be monitored Low powered underground tests would thus be exempted as not subject to effective monitor ing These are steps which offer an

not get hysterical about such achievements he deplores public argument among military experts regarding the adequacy and specific requirements of the nations defense Eisenhower said he was trying to keep his own statements outside of the party field attempting to dedi cate his efforts entirely to the security of the United States in the fieldsof foreign affairs and defense Without picking particular tar gets he said those involved should be big enough not to seek fieadlines big enough to seek a real solution to problems fac ing the country As for the arguments princi pallyby Democrats
