Reawakened Interest in Fight for Senatorial Seats

By The Associataed Press
With President Dwight D.
Eisenhower again surely in the
race for a second term, political
realists see a reawakened interest
in the fight for control of the Sen-
ate this November.
Senatorial elections are always
important. Ordinarily their signi-
ficance is overshadowed heavily
by the contest for the presidency.
Assuming no further medical bul-
letins from the White House, how-
ever, the general public this year
is apt to consider the result of the
presidential contest foreordained,
which will cause no great sorrow
among Republicans but probably
will make for a presidential elec-
tion less exciting than usual.
Without a spellbinding presi-
dential battle, the Senate races
are likely to emerge into the na-
tional political limelight.
Ending Terms
The Democrats will enter the
Senate battle with a two-seat ma-
jority of 49 to 47 and with 17 seats
at stake, seven of them in the
South. Terms of 17 Republican
senators also end this year.
Senators are elected for six-
year terms and the terms are
staggered so one-third of the total
of 96 come up for re-election ev-
ery two years. This year there are
two extra races, one in Kentucky,
caused by the death of Sen. Alben
W. Barkley, and the other in West
Virginia, the result of lhe death of
Sen. Harley M. Kilgore.
Strategists for both parties have
come to separate decisions that
control of the first session of the
85th Congress is likely to be de-
cided in 11 states. This doesn't
mean they are ignoring other
races, but they feel their chancesJ
for picking up seats are best in1
these states. Neither party, of

'U' Prepares
Social Work
Preparation of persons for lead-
ership positions in the social wel-
fare field, particularly for teaching,
research and administrative posts,
will be the objective of a new
program announced yesterday by
the University.
The new program will be made
possible by a $250,000 grant from
the Russell Sage Foundation of
New York City. The grant is to be
spent over the next five years.
Details on the program were an-
nounced by President Harlan
Hatcher following acceptance by
the Regents of the first-year's
grant from the foundation.
The grant will permit develop-
ment of a program of advanced
training leading to a doctoral de-
gree in social work and a social
science. It also will be used to
support research on problems of
policy and practice in several
areas of social welfare. President
Hatcher said early research activ-
ity is planned in the area of social
security and public assistance, cor-
rectional treatment for juvenile
and adult offenders, and child wel-
Approximately half of the grant
will be administered by the School
of Social Work and make possible
the addition of two new faculty
members with social science train-
ing to that School.
The other half will be adminis-
tered by the Horace H. .ackham
Graduate School to provide funds
for student fellowships and for
faculty research. The doctoral
training program will be made up
of approximately an equal amount
of work in the School of Social
Work and a social science depart-
With the launching of the new
interdepartmental degree program
the University will become one of
12 universities in the United States
offering doctoral training for social
work. .
In commenting on the new pro-1
gram, F. F. Fauri,.dean of Univer-
sity School of Social Work, pointed
out that there are: over 600 full-
time teaching positions in gradu-
ate schools, of social work, plus
several hundred research positionsl
in governmental and voluntary so-
cial welfare agencies for which
training beyond the masters degree
level is becoming increasingly im-

course, will publicly admit the
possibility of losing any seats.
To Republican's eyes, the Demo-
crats are most vulnerable in Ken-
tucky, Oregon, Nevada, New York
and West Virginia. Democratic
strategists plan to direct their
heaviest fire toward Republican
incumbents in Colorado, Connec-
ticut, Indiana, Illinois, Maryland
and Ohio.
One cause of Republican optim-
ism in New York is doubt as to
whether Sen. Herbert Lehman
(D-Lib) will try for another term.
He is now 78 and would be 84 at
the end of another tour of Senate
GOP hopes in Kentucky got a
big boost from former Sen. John
Sherman Cooper's announcement
that he will campaign against
Democrat Lawrence Wetherby for
the seat made vacant by Barkley's
death. Cooper's chances of beating
Wetherby are held better than
Thurston Morton's chances of de-
feating the Democratic incumbent,

Sen. Earle Clements, in a second
Kentucky contest.
Morse and McKay
In Oregon, Republicans are ;w-
ing all out to unseat Sen. Wayne
Morse, once a Republican but now
a Democrat, with former Interior
Secretary Douglas McKay. In
Nevada, they think they can beat
Democrat Sen. Alan Bible, who
has reconsidered a previous de-
cision to step out. In West Vir-

Court cases involving everything
from soda pop to school segrega-
tion have felt the impact of ex-
pert testimony by social scientists,
and their influence will probably
become more widespread in the
future, according to an article in
the current University Law Re-
Written by Jack Greenberg, as-
sistant counsel for the National
Associatalon for the Advancement
of Colored People (NAACP) Legal
Defense and Educational Fund,
the article notes that "The rela-
tive infrequency of social science
testimony in general has been due
to unawarness it can be useful."
"More and more lawyers must
produce facts bearing on issues
that concern the public," Green-
berg asserts. "They must estab-
lish what the public thinks, or
how it will react, or the effect of
social conditions on large groups
of people." Social science testi-
mony can help them achieve this
Bibleo, Peep Shows
In addition: to segregation cases,
Greenberg notes that social sci-
ence testimony has been used to
establish relevant facts where
free Bibles were distributed by
public schools, to determine social
and p s y c h olog i c al pressures
against those declining to accept
Bibles; peep-show movies were
declared obscene, to show how the
film in question might rouse base
emotions in normal adults; "sav-
ings" was used in bank advertis-
ing, to determine public reactions
to this word.
Public opinion analysts. are the
social'scientists who have testified
most frequently, Greenberg notes,
and the courts are growing more
liberal in allowing their findings
to be used in deciding cases.
The principal problems encoun-
tered in legal use of opinion polls,
according to Greenberg, are the
expense and the difficulty of get-
ting all those who conducted the
interviews to testify.

ginia, a reorganization of the par-
ty lineup has given GOP strate-
gists hopes of unseating Democrat
William C. Marland with former
Sen. Chapman Revercomb in the
race to fill the seat held by the
late Sen. Kilgore.
The Democrats now believe Gov.
Frank J. Lausche has a better
than even chance of beating in-
cumbent Republican Sen. George
Bender in Ohio. Democratic chan-
ces in Connecticut got at least
tacit recognition from the Repub-
licans when they named Sen.
Prescott Bush as chairman of the
national convention platform
committee. This was an obvious
move to aid Bush in what looks
like a close race.
The illness of Sen. Eugene Milli-
kin, Republican of Colorado, has
increased Democrat chances in
that state and the party is betting
heavily on farm dissatisfaction in
efforts to unseat Republican Sens.
Homer Capehart and Everett
Dirksen in Indiana and Illinois.
With former Sen. Millard Tydings
as their nominee, the Democrats

ler in Maryland.

from the Youngblood Jensen Co.,
