(Studio) Congress composition will change with November elections.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Capitol Hill) Republicans will probably not gain control of Congress, even with Nixon landslide. House complexion changes with retirement, primary defeat, and death of Representatives Emanuel Celler, chairperson House Judiciary Committee, retires. House Rules Committee chairperson William Colmer, House Merchant Marine chairperson Edward Garmatz also retire. Losing in primaries: House Space Committee chairperson George P. Miller, House Washington, DC chairperson John McMillan, House Interior chairperson Wayne Aspinall. Lenore Sullivan takes over Merchant Marine and Inland Fisheries.
