GALLUP POLL SAYS:
Voters Expect GOP Will
Gain Control Of House
By GEORGE GALLUP
Director, American Institute of Public Opinion
PRINCETON, N. J., October 10. — If the American
voters’ guesses are right, the Republicans are going to take
over control of the House in the elections now only a little
more than three weeks away.
A poll just completed across the nation finds a major
ity with opinions placing tneir
money on the Republicans when
they are asked:
“Regardless of how you your
self plan to vote, which party
do you think will win control of
the House in the Congressional
elections this fall—the Demo
chatic or the Republican?’'
The replies:
Republican -63%
Democratic -37
The above figures refer only to
the people who made a guess
when field reporters for the In
stitute questioned them. About
one in six gave no opinion.
The Experts
This guess of the man-on-the
street coincides with the guess of
a group of Washington political
experts.
Newsweek Magazine recently
polled 50 top political reporters
in the nation’s capital; these are
the men who write on politics for
newspapers all over the country.
The question: how will the
House be divided politically after
November?
The composite opinion from
the poll of the political writers
was that the Republicans would
win the majority of seats. The
political writers gave the GOP
221 seats to 213 for the Demo
crats and 1 to other parties.
This would mean a gain of 29
seats for the Republicans. They
need to gain 26 to take over con
trol of the House of Representa
tives.
When Institute statisticians
separate replies of those who
think of themselves as Democrats
and those who consider them
selves Republicans, two facts of
interest emerge.
One, the Republicans are more
confident of victory than the
Democrats. Two, a lot of wish

Russian Consulate In New
York Says Group Re
fuses To Register
NEW YORK, Oct. 10—(A*)—The
Soviet consulate said Thursday 11
citizens from the Union of Soviet
Socialist republics, who cgme here
to attend the American Slav con
gress, had been ordered home
by their government rather than
comply with a justice department
order for them to register as agents
of a foreign power.
Anatol Yakovlev, vice consul of
the Soviet consulate general, said
a scheduled appearance for the 11
persons at a Slav mass meeting
Thursday night in Gary, Ind., had
been cancelled and that all of
them would go home "as soon as
arrangements can be made.”
They were among 17 European
delegates to the third American
Slav congress, held Sept. 22 in
New York City. Among the 17 were
one Czech three Bulgarians and
two Poles.
All 17 were asked by the justice
department to register as foreign
agents. Yakovlev said he had no
information concerning what action
might be taken by the six non
citizens of the USSR.
He added that his government
had made “representations” to the
justice department through the
state department.
In Washington both the justice
and state departments declined
comment on the matter Thursday.
Yakovlev said each ofthe 11 USSR
citizens had received letters from

County Board Of Health
Gets Winter Park Report
The New Hanover county Board
of Health yesterday closed the
books on its investigation of Win
ter Park’s sewage system after
hearing a report by L. I. Lassiter,
its sanitary engineer, that an in
vestigation of 350 septic tanks had
developed only three cases that
constituted serious health hazards.
Dr. A. H. Elliott, who presented
the Lassiter report to the board,
said that repairs were underway
on two of the defective tanks and
that early action could be expected
on the third.
The health department inspectors
found some trouble at 22 of the
350 houses they visited, Elliott
said. Besides the three septic tanks
whose condition he described as
"serious,” the department super
N. T. Ell iff, chief of the foreign
agents registration section of the
department of justice, which told
them they must register under the
Foreign Registration act of be sub
ject to possible fine and imprison
ment.
The letter was dated Oct. 4 and,
according to the vice consul, said
in part:
"Your position as a member of
a delegation from a foreign organi
zation and the activities in which
you have engaged since your entry
into the United States make you
subject to the regulatory provisions
of the act as the agent of a foreign
principal.”
The letter added that unless an
“immediate response” were forth
coming the departmej would be
"forced to conclude that your de
liberate refusal to comply with
the act constitutes a violation of
the criminal provisions thereof.”
Yakovlev said he did not know
what representations his govern
ment had made in the matter and
he declined further comment.
Included among the^ 11 USSR
citizens were six Russians and five
Ukrainians.

It’s great to have that “ready for

Porter Wagstaff, Frank Blanch
ard and Lassiter, the department’s
inspection team, uncovered 14 de
fective grease traps in the course
of their study.
Withhold Actior
The health board also withheld
action on a requests by four resi
dents of the block bounded by
Second, Third, Grace and Walnut
streets that the city take immedi
ate steps to drain the standing
pool of water in the center of this
block known as Horse Pond drain.
Dr. Elliott reported after the
meeting that the board had taken
no action, since there was ap
parently no sewage menace involv
ed and the pond’s mosquito breed
ing potentialities are apparently
under control.
The health board's members
united in sympathy with the prob
lem presented by the pond, he de
clared.
C. C. Bordeaux, 316 N. Second
Street, a member of the delegation,
said after the meeting that he and
four other residents of the Horse
Pond block will shortly write the
City Manager, J. R. Benson an
nouncing their rejection of pro
posals that the city drain the pond
with the expense to be borne by
residents of the block.
