From

Date November 10, 1958.
Subject:

Mr, Thurston
On the basis of Republican gains, it is possible that they will
get larger representation on committees in both House, and Senate and
that the Democrats will have less when the new Congress organizes*
Three Democrats of the Senate Banking and Currency Committee
are out — Bulkley, JIcAdoo, and Hitchcock of South Dakota. This
leaves in order to seniority:
Wagner, as Chairman
Glass
Barkley
Reynolds
Byrnes
Bankhead
Adams
Maloney
Radcliffe
Brown
Hughes
Herring
Smathers
In other words, there are three vacancies to be filled, one of
whom should be Worth Clark.
On the House side (according to present returns) 7 of the 18
Democratic members of the Banking and Currency Committee are out for
one reason or another. These 7 are:




Reilly, of Wisconsin
Hancock, of North Carolina
Farley, of Indiana
Meeks, of Illinois
Kopplemann, of Connecticut
Clark, of Idaho
Transue, of Michigan
Republicans on both Senate and House Committees are intact*
