The article discusses some observations in the form of a guide to voters, following a survey on selected 31 key issues in the U.S. Senate and the House. Absenteeism increased in the 82nd Congress. Twelve Senators, all Republicans, are recorded as voting wrong, or against liberalism. There were less than 20 Senators whose votes displayed consistent support of the liberal position, while 24 Senators consistently ignored social and world responsibility. The 82nd Congress approved only 37 percent of the recommendations made to it by President Harry S. Truman.
