Members of House Claimed by Majority Party By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hanging up unprecedented totals all along the line late tabulations from Tuesdays tremendous election sweep today boosted President Roosevelts popular plurality toward and assured 75 democrat ic seats in the senate and at least 333 in the house In the light huge totals members of the Roosevelt adminis tration settled quickly to planning the future course of the new deal The record shattering democratic congressional majorities were illus trated by comparison with those of the last congress There were 69 democrats in the last senate as against a coming Only 49 votes are required for a majority In the house 321 democrats crowded the chamber as against the 333 already assured of seats and with two contests still in doubt A majority is 218 The heavy lead enjoyed by Gov Clyde L Herring of Iowa over Sen ator Dickinson republican and the advantage by Guy Gillette over Berry Halden republican for Iowas two senate their a senate lineup that will read as follows Democrats farmer labor 2 pfogressives 1 and one independent Total votes cast had already set an all tiffle record reaching 035 with voting districts Still to tie heard from Of the total Roosevelt had and Alf M Landon Early Dajs As for electoral votes there has been no such lopsided victory since the early days of the republic when George Washington got the full electoral vote of every state voting and James Monroe got all except one vote The returns Thursday seemed to clinch the indications of Wednesday that the score would read Roosevelt 523 Landon 8 when congress goea through the formality of counting the votesinJanuary Landon still had only Maine and Vermont Among the senators who will swell the democratic majority are six who wrested seats from republi cans They are James H Hughes of Delaware Prentiss Brown of Michi gan William H Smathers of New Jersey Theodore Francis Green of Rhode Island H R Schwarts of Wyoming and Clyde LHerring of Iowa One satisfication for the minority was the victory of Henry Cabot Lodge who beatGov James M Curley democrat for a senate seat from Massachusetts McNary of Oregon republican won after a race that was in doubt for a time Fourth Successive Win The democratic congressional vic tory the fourth successive one at the virtually had wiped out the last traces of the famous sena torial old guard which once dom inated the senatechamber under the chieftainship of such men as Watson Reed and Smoot Moreover Tuesdays election made certain that unless the solid south breaks up or a reformation of party lines occurs the democrats will have control of the senate through out President Roosevelts second term and probably until 1943 The size of the democratic ma jorities raised problems for leaders who will have totry to weld them into an efficient legislative machine Past experience has taught that large majorities are prone to split into factions and blocs As the tally which stake in Tuesdays denjq
