Pouch an , 8l mm v George Washington Highest military rank House Panel lo Promote Washington WASHINGTON (LTD The House Armed Services Committee voted to promote George Washington to General of the Armies yesterday despite a grumble that this would be like "a drunken house painter trying to improve on the works of Michelan gelo." I he committee voted 15-6 in favor of promoting Washington to the nation"s highest military rank and sent the proposal to the full House for action. ALTHOUGH some lawmakers clearly regard this particular Bicentennial effort as frivolous, a spokesman said two or three committee members who missed the session asked later to have their votes added to the 15 in favor. Rep. Mario Biaggi, D-N.Y., started the drive in a subcommittee last week, saying it was unseemly that the Father of His Country, a mere lieutenant general, is now outranked by hundreds of officers. The subcommittee unanimously approved Biaggi's motion to make Washington General of the Armies a rank so far held only by Gen. John Pershing, the World War I hero and Rep. F. Edward Hebert, D-La., shepherded the proposal through the full committee yesterday. HE SAID THE rank is Washington's by rights be cause Congress, in 199, approved such a promo tion, although President John Adams neglected to make the appointment. But Kep. Lucien Nedzi, DMich., scoffed at the proposal. 1 really feel it is highly presumptuous of Congress to believe and feel that Congress today can somehow add to the luster of George Washington," he said. Such a move, he said, would be "like a drunken house painter trying to improve on the works of Michelangelo, in my judg ment. HE DISMISSED the romotion as a "paper onor," establishing a "dangerous precedent in which boosters might start Tessuring Congress to onor other heroes. Joining Nedzi to vote against the proposal were Reps. Elwood Hillis, R-Ind., Marjorie Holt, R-Md., Richard Ichord, DMo., George O'Brien, R-111., and Patricia Schroeder, D-Colo. Pentagon spokesmen have said General of the Armies outranks the five-star General of the Army and Fleet Admiral ranks accorded such World War II luminaries as Douglas MacArthur and William (Bull) Halsey. IN FACT, the rank is so rare that not even the military protocol experts are sure how many stars a General of the Armies is entitled to. One Pentagon expert, having researched his files, said Congress authorized Pershing to design his own uniform and his own insignia without limitation to the numbers of stars that normally distin. uish otficer grades ersnmg cnose to wear the uniform of a four-star gen. eral, he said. "But implicit in this," he said, "is that if a General of the Armies wants to wear six stars, he can. Or seven. Or 10. 1 guess."
