Another Tight Contest
f N all the guessing over whether or not President Eisenhower
4 will run again, it has tended to be forgotten that a tight
struggle will also be waged this year for control of the next
Democrats of course hold both houses now. and are favor-
ed to retain command. This is the experts’ view even if Mr.
Eisenhower stands for re-election and thus gives congression-
al candidates whatever boost they can get from his popularity.
Recapturing control is an especially difficult task for the
Republicans in the Senate. To be sure, the Democrats’ present
edge is slim—49 to 47. A net gain of one would switch control,
if a Republican vice president had meantime been elected
and was prepared to preside over the upper chamber.
But tne battle prospects do not give advantage to the
GOP. Thirty-three seats are at stake in November Of these,
eight are in the solid South and are conceded in advance to
the Democrats. The other 25 represent the fighting ground.
NEA SERVICE. INC.
VET of the 25, only eight are now held by Democrats and
thus subject to GOP capture. The other 17 are already
Republican and must be defended. This gives the Democrats
a bit more than twice as many chances as the Republicans
have to pick up Senate seats in 1956.
To cite just a few spots out of the 17 where Republicans
may have trouble keeping what they’ve got, look at Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Maryland and Colorado.

TT isn’t often a wife sets out
* to share her husband’s love
with another woman, but there
is the story of one who did.
Christmas time brought to light
the fine figure of a woman. She
was dirty, faded, bedrabbled
and her make-up cracked and
smeared. She looked like a be-
dizened Jezebel as she stood in
the antique shop and smiled a
sad little smile at the customers
as she dreamed of the days of
A most discerning woman
shopper spied her and had her
brought forth, and lo! Upon in-
spection she proved to be a
mermaid. The shopper, a
strange woman these days, was
hunting a Christmas present for
her husband; not looking for
some fireside gimmick with
which to keep the gentleman at
home, but for something which
would please him and perhaps
flatter his vanity a little. When
she saw the mermaid she said
to herself, if Cape Codders de-
scend to such informal language,
"that’s just the dish.”
So she bought the dirty, shop-
worn, man-handled creature and
took her to a restorer of an-
tiques who recreated her to be
the other woman in the life of
a husband who owns a .sailboat
Now she is gorgeous to behold.

fully selected a gift? The first
figurehead to be seen on the
prow of a sail boat on the wa-
ters of the sound, I'll wager;
and it a smiling female? What
a gift! And what a wife! But
the gay little smile of the mer-
maid does not compare with the
egnimatical broader grin of the
wife; as the mermaid is an Ital-
ian beauty three hundred and
fifty »years old who must have
left home with an American
seaman who deserted her on the
shores of Nantucket sound.
