that is alarming many members:
of Congress is the extent of thei
current publicity car paign to]
brain Wash the public into be- j
lieving that Conservatives can
never get anywhere politically j
unless they transfn m themselves
into rabid “liber; s”.
What the ruolic is not told
is the fact t! at virtually all of
the disseminators of this pro
liberal point of view are ardent
New Dealers—and the wish is i
father of the thought.
The members cf Congress who
object to the type of campaign
being waged point out that the
closeness of the recent election
indicates that, the more conserva
tive viewpoint has a real chance:
of victory in the future.
These congressmen applaud
the non-partisan manner with
which a majority of newsmen'
handle political developments.'
They also recognize that edi
torial writers and columnists'
have considerable latitude in in-1
terpreting what has taken place
and in forecasting the future.
But what is objected to is the
tendency of some newsmen and
editors to place undue emphasis (
on news with a liberal tinge
and to play down—or ignore—
developments which place Con
servatives in an attractive light.
There were a number of com
plaints along this line during the
political campaign and some
members of Congress say that
the pro-liberal slanting of news i
could have been an important |
factor in deciding close contests. |
There also have been a num-1
her of post-election complaints,
of this nature —resulting from
undue emphasis on liberalism cs,

The Conservatives are con

be stimulated by an effective
campaign reaching the grass

They are willing to let the
people decide between Conserva

people are able to obtain the
facts and the arguments.
Conservatives find support for
their contention in the fact that
Vice President Nioxn carried 228'
congressional districts while Sen-i
ator Kennedy carried only 206.
Political observers say this can;
be construed as indicating that!
the nation as a whole favored [
a more conservative Congress—
and, in fact, elected one.
Republicans picked jjp 22 •
House Seats and two Senate
seats. The new House will be
composed of 261 Democrats and
176 Republicans. The new Sen
ate wili consist of 64 Democrats
and 36 Republicans.
The real test, however, is in
the strength displayed by the j
coalition of Southern Democrats |
and Conservative Republicans.
An analysis of the new House
indicates that there is good rea
son to expect that the coalition
will be able to muster a ma
jority vote on many basis issues.
This analysis is. of course,
based on the assumption that
the Conservatives will vote their
real convictions—and that some,
of them will not be swayed by!

Some Questions About TB
And The Answers
Here are the questions people
most often ask about tubercu

If I get TB, what are my
chances of a cure? Excellent, if
your illness is found early
enough and you complete the
treatment your doctor prescribes.
There are 1,750,000 people living
today who once had active TB.
Can TB be cured at home? In
a few cases, yes. But mast TB
patients should start treatment
in the hospital, where there are
laboratories to make all the ne
cessary tests, a staff of doctors
to plan treatment, and good

How can I tell if I have TB?
You can’t, because in its early
stages TB causes no symptoms
that anyone could -notice. But
a tuberculin test and if the test
is positive, a chest X-ray, can
tell your doctor if you have TB.
Consult nothing so much upon
every occasion as discretion. It
is more discreet to be silent
than to speak.
