Democratic watchman. (Bellefonte, Pa.) 1855-1940, November 14, 1930, Image 7

A Senate controlled by Republic-
ans and a House of Representatives
uled by the Democrats emerges as
the probable lineup of the ‘Seventy-
second Congress.
Tardy returns from outlying pre- | you
cincts in the closely-contested dis-
tricts showed the following distribu-
tion of power:
Republicans, 48; Democrats, 47;
Farmer-Labor, 1; Necessary for
majority, 49.
Republicans, 218; Democrats, 216;
Farmer-Labor, 1; Necessary for
majority, 218.
Because 'of the closeness of sev-
eral races, both in the Senate and
in the House, this distribution could
not be considered as final, however.
There seems every likelihood that
there will be several contests and
recounts which might reverse the re-
sult of the unofficial returns before
the ‘Congress convenes.
The outcome of the tabulations in
the two races which remained doubt-
ful, however, .would not change the
general political complexion of the
new Congress, as judged from the
unofficial returns. :
Technical control of the Senate be-
longed to the Repunlicans, despite
their lack of a majority, because it
was not possible for the Democrats
to emerge with more than forty-
seven votes.
The Democratic sweep in the elec-
tion was greater than shown in the
party’s gains in the Senate and
House of Representatives, Jouett
Shouse, chairman of the Democratic
national executive committee, said in
a statement last week.
«In every section of the country
a phenomenon of the campaign was
the narrow margin by which the ban-
ner bearers of the Republican party
held onto their seats,” Shouse said.
«rake the case of Speaker Long-
worth, who ordinarily has been sure
of a 30,000 majority, he squeezed
in this time by a tenth of that
“Then there is Tilson, of Connecti-
cut, spokesman for the President
and Republican floor leader of the
House, whose majorities have run
from 10,000 to 30,000. His escape
was so narrow that an early report
from Connecticut counted him de-
feated. Will Wood, of Indiana,
chairman of the appropriations com-
mittee and chairman of the Repub-
lican congressional committee, ac-
customed to 30,000 majorities, is
wnother who barely got by this
time. And Hawley of the ways and
means committee, who was elected
two years ago with a majority of
about 60,000 just missed being num-
bered among the casualties last
Tuesday.” = I
The locks of the Panama canal,
which have held the laurels as the
world’s largest—in cubic content—
now yield the honor ‘to that of the
the North Sea canal at Ymuiden.
When Queen Wilhelmina of Holland
‘threw the electrci switch that set the
Yatter into operation, she was act-
ing in line with the traditions of her
country, for the nation that now
boasts the largest lock also claims
the honor of having invented this
important device.
Although canals date back beyond
the beginning of the Christian era
— having been used for navigation
and communication by the As-
Syrians, Egyptians, Hindus and
‘Chinese—thieir usefulness was not
-fealized until the invention of the
“lock about 500 years ago. The
claim of the Dutch to have originated
this device by which ships are en.
abled to sail “up hill” is, however, dis-
puted by the Italians, who assert
‘that the lock was invented by two
of their engineers in 1491.
The lock in Ymuiden is 1,312 feet
long and 164 feet wide. The Gatun
Jock in Panama is 1,000 feet long
and 110 feét wide. Lock 8 of the
‘Welland canal is 1,380 feet long and
80 feet wide. The Sault Ste. Marie
‘Jock ‘is 1,350 feet long and 80 feet
wide. In lock construction greater
engineering problems are Te-
lated to width than to length, for
the width determines the size of the
gates, the manipulation of whose
‘enormous mass is one of the marvels
of engineering.
The ter width of the Ymuiden
qoek will enable the largest ‘pas-
senger ‘vessels to ‘reach the docks
of the Dutch city.
