Mr, Roosevelt's party gained 24 seats in the latter body and retained contr- ol of the Senate with a majority of 55 seats. Two of tne President's long-standing opponents on international affairs - Senator Gerald P. Nye (R.-North Dakota) and Representative Hamilton Fish (R.-New York) were both defeated for re-el- ection.
