Senate Majority ways
As Campaigns Near End
(Editor's Note: Second in political interest only to the presidential race are
the 1948 contests on which turn party control of the U. S. Senate. In the
present Senate, Republicans hold 51 seats and Democrats 45. A net gain of
four seats on Nov. 2 would give the Democrats control. This situation has
spelled intense rivalry in key states.
Republicans ,. ,
NEW YORK-(IP)-One big aim
of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey's cam-
paign is to retain Republican con-
trol of the Senate-and the GOP
Presidential nominee is reported
confident he can attain that aim.
But no one in his camp is mak-
ing any claim that the margin of
control will be large. The con-
sensus of Dewey aides is that it
will be a slim majority-perhaps
slimmer than the 51 to 45 division
favoring the Republicans in the

to Republican Senatorial nomi-

Last session Congress passed a
bill to admit European displaced
persons. Critics said it discrim-
inated against Jews and some
Catholics. Dewey appealed to Rev-
ercomb, chairman of a judiciary
sub-committee, to have the crit-
icized provisions changed. Rever-
comb, denying they were discrim-
inatory, said "no."
NOW DEWEY'S friends have
passed the word privately to news-
men that he isn't going into West
Virginia to help Revercomb. How-
ever, William S. Ryan, Republi-
can chairman of Roane County,
W. Va., announced he had a letter
from Dewey campaign headquar-
ters saying it is "doing everything
possible" to help reflect Rever-
The Republicans feel they
have an excellent chance to un-
seat Senator James E. Murray
of Montana, veteran New Dealer.
And they say the odds are
slightly in their favor in Wyo-
ming and New Mexico.

V. Robertson, Republican, is hav-

race against popular Democratic

A minor war is currently being waged every Sunday night over
the nation's major radio networks.
The whole thing stems from the phenomenal popularity which
the latest radio fad, giveaway programs, has achieved among listeners.
* * * *
FOR YEARS, NBC'S comedy sequence, the Jack Benny-Phil
Harris-Edgar Bergen-Fred Allen shows have held undisputed reign
over the Sunday night listening popularity.
The latest Hooper ratings, however, list ABC's "Stop the
Music" show (8-9 p.m.) out ahead of the Fred Allen program by
a 16.1 to 12.5 count.
In accomplishing the unbelievable feat of unseating an established
program which has annually laid claim to more than 12,000,000
supporters, "Stop the Music" offers nothing more than the usual
claptrap put out by most giveaway programs.
THE ESTABLISHED pattern is to call members of the listening
audience at random, asking them to name a mystery song, identify
some unknown voice or answer a question. To lure their audiences
back, they offer tremendous prizes, often passing the $20,000 mark.
To say that Allen, Bergen, Harris and Benny are losing hair
and sleep over the craze is a gross understatement. Allen recently
posted a $5,000 guarantee for anyone who is called while listening
to his program.
In addition, he recently designed an entire new show as a
takeoff on the giveaway babble. Hope, Bergen and arch-rival Benny
have joined him in these verbal jabs at the opposition.
THE REASON for the amazing success of the giveaway shows is
probably not so much the fact that listeners actually think they
can make a million quick, but that the top comedians have been
going stale-their shows gradually deteriorating year after year.
In this respect the giveaway fad may be the necessary shot-
in-the-arm for the leading comics. They have shown a decided
improvement in their early shows this fall, combining more
refreshing wit and zest with a more highly polished production
Eventually the comedians will undoubtedly regain their perennial
popularity. Faced with real competition for the first time, they will
be on their toes and certainly the listening public can't stand the
giveaway nonsense forever.
