"resident Truman's popularity, se
tting to the Gallup Poll, struck
its low point in October, 1946, just
before the congressional elections,
when only 82 per eent of those polled
approved his administration* M per
cent disapproved, and IB per cent
had no opinion.
He had bounded back on June 1,
1947, with 57 per cent approving, 26
per cent disapproving, and 18 per

the woot-tartf bill, on the ground
that it would have haadioappod the
nation's foreign poller. The Admin
istration's efforts to get full funds
for Overseas State -Department
broadcasts also have ran into the leg
islative economy watt. And nobody
can tell just how Congress will react
to the Marshall Plan, if and when the
time comes when it must approve
muitibillion-dolhu' funds. But, so
far, the nation has been unusually
successful in keeping domestic poli
ties put of foreign policies.
On home issues, on the other hand,
both sides have been "making a re
cord* with zealous satisfaction. ' -
Here is-what Republican congres
sional leaden seem likely to eay, on

the nation back to an evenkeel after
14 years of Democratic mismanage
ment We have carried through onr
1946 campaign pledges. We have pat
into effect. far-reaching new labor
legislation in the Taft-Hartley Labor
Act and the Act ending portal-to
portal pay suits, and" voted to eat
taxes (though the responsibility for
thwarting onr efforts must rest on
the Democratic President). We have
also scaled down the Tfwnkn budget
and made a start in' whittling Fede
ral bureaucracy back to prewar sise.
We have cooperated on foreign poli
cy. We have initiated a proposed
constitutional amendment limiting
the presidential tenure to two years
and carried through the new legis
lative reorganization law. - We have
scrutiny. Before this session is over
we shall probably have approved uni-.
fi cation of the armed services.
As contrasted to the Republican
version, Truman leaden will take
much the same material and ar.ive
at surprisingly different results:
?The two major domestic issues be
fore the public are high prices and
lack of housing. Republican leaders
in Congress led the fight on OPA
and prices jumped. The Republican
Congress destroyed the Traman
housing program. House Republi
cans will block the_ Taft-Ellender
Wagner housing program as they did
last year. Mr. Traman paid his re
Bpects to the "housing lobby" when
he signed the rent-control law. On
fiscal affairs the Truman Adminis
tration has followed a sound course.
It has balanced the budget.
