Republicans in 5 In the present Congress there are 281 Democrats and 174 Republicans with two va cancies For President Kennedy the con iressional outcome was a victory in that it bucked the tradition tha the party in power normally lose sizable block of congressiona seats in offyear elections The President appeared also t have a strengthened hand in th Senate with the increased Demo cratic strength there and the add tion of such warm supporters o his program as his brother Ed ward Ted Kennedy elected in Massachusetts and former Secre tary of Welfare Abraham Ribi coff elected in Connecticut But the liberal vs conservative division in the House where Ken nedys legislative proposals have encountered their toughest going apparently was little changed The balloting seemingly
