Central Press Staff Writer
Washington, Dec. 20. —If Republi
can strategists were to be offered
their choice between electing the next
president or gaining control of the
House of Representatives in the
seventy-fifth Congress there is small
doubt that, they would prefer control
of the House of Representatives. Not
that they wouldn’t like the presidency
also, but. of the two selections, they
reckon that a majority in the lower
congressional chamber would be more
valuable to them. They can’t possibly
wipe out. the Democratic Senate ma
jority; not enough seats are at stake
at the coming election. However, a
majority of the representatives would
serve their purpose.
For one thing, with the Townsend
ites threatening a third party move
ment and with bolting Democrats, led
by Governor Eugene Talmadc of
Georgia, and John Henry Kirby of
Texas, incubating a fourth one, poli
ticians think they see a chance that
the job of picking the 1937’-11 presi
dent may be thrown into the popular
house of Congress. Naturally the G.
O. P. fancies the idea of being dom
inant there, and doing the picking.
But, setting that contingency aside,
