May 1952
New Republic;5/19/52, Vol. 126 Issue 20, p14
The article analyzes how the power will shift if the Republican party forms the majority in the House of Representatives in the United States. With economy in government as one of the great Grand Old Party (GOP) campaign promises this year, control of the House Appropriations Committee would give the Republicans a chance to carry out the arbitrary budget cuts they have attempted, many times successfully, in the past. The next watch-dog over the nation's defenses may be Dewey Short, the boisterous Missouri hill-preacher who leads the shouting and yelling at GOP get-togethers.
