Palm Beach Post, Monday, Nov. 4, 196S 33 Grade "A "Fa. or Ga. Fresh Ice Packed Key Democrats Assisted In Humphrey Campaign nncncTC with RIBS By CONGRESSIONAL QUARTERLY WASHINGTON, - II Hubert H. Humphrey defies the polls and wins the White House, he will owe a debt of gratitude to a few political technicians who created a national campaign organization from the bottom up in a few short weeks. Handicapped by lack of funds, shortage of time and lingering bitterness after the chaotic Democratic National nn nniiriQTinrrs X vii unwmwiiy.iv m m The store that cares about you! -V ID Convention, Humphrey's campaign organization hardly functioned at all in September. Under the direction of Lawrence F. O'Brien, Humphrey's hand-picked chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the campaign organization took shape in October and by the end of the month it was going full steam ahead. As one Humphrey staffer said, "You can't accuse us of 'peaking' too soon." When O'Brien replaced John Bailey In August as head of the national committee, he found a nearly empty treasury and a suite of empty offices in party headquarters In Washington, D.C.. O'Brien, aided by veteran Minnesota political associates of the Vice President, brought in new staff members and began to revitalize the political operations of the DNC. Robert E. Short, a Minneapolis industrialist and longtime Humphrey ally, began the search for funds In his new post as party treasurer. And O'Brien used his persuasive talents to convince former Kennedy and McCarthy backers to join the campaign.

O'Donnell, President Kennedy's appointments secretary. Like O'Brien himself, O'Donnell was an original member of the "Irish Mafia" that helped Kennedy win the presidency In 1960. Among McCarthy backers, former Democrat National Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell joined the Humphrey camp as a vice chairman of the Citizens for Humphrey-Muskle organization. Mitchell was McCarthy's chief spokesman at the Chicago convention. As election day approached, the Humphrey campaign Included three major elements: long-time political advisers, many of whom campaigned with the vice president; the official vice presidential staff; and the formal party organizations. Humphrey's senior advisers, in addition to O'Brien, Included Agriculture Secretary Orville L. Freeman; Labor Secretary W. Willard Wlrtz; Max Kampelman, a Washington attorney and former Humphrey aide; William Connell, Humphrey's executive assistant; and James H. Rowe Jr., a veteran Democratic adviser. Others in the inner circle were Sen. Walter F. Mondale (D, Minn.), Sen. Fred R. Harris (D, Okla.), former UN Ambassador George W. Ball, and two Minnesota friends Mrs. Gerl Joseph, now vice chairman of the DNC, and former Ambassador Eugenie Anderson. Humphrey's official staff aides included press secretary Norman Sherman, William Welsh, Ted Van Dyke and foreign affairs specialist John Rellly. The two major party organizations are the Democratic National Committee, headed by O'Brien and Mrs. Joseph, and Citizens for Humphrey-Muskie, which coordinates volunteer efforts and runs dozens of temporary campaign committees for the Democratic ticket. Heading the citizens operation is former Gov. Terry San-ford (N.C., 1961-65). He Is assisted by O'Donnell and Mitchell, who are national co-chairmen. A third co-chairman Is former UN Ambassador Arthur Goldberg. Both are DNC and the citizens' group have extensive field staffs of political operatives and advance men who are directly responsible for particular states or regions. Despite a nominal division of campaign tasks between the citizens organization and the national committee, there Is a great deal of overlap between them.
