David Hoeh, a professor at Darthmouth College who failed in his race for a New Hampshire congressional seat as a peace candidate, said the work of the new coalition would have several specific goals. More liberals, he said, must move into positions of power within organized labor and the Democratic Party must be opened to the young, Negroes and other minorities, including the "disaffected middle class." His thoughts were echoed by the Rev. Channing Phillips of Washington, D.C. "Three things have happened that Indicate this new direction is occuring," Phillips said. "First, the movement of the new coalition; second, increasing talk that Hubert H. FURNISH YOUR LIVING ROOM IN COMFORT St . staging area for an assault on the party." Specific plans, he said, were under way to field candidates for mayor in Los Angeles, St. Louis and Omaha, and congressional candidates in the next elections. Gerald N. Hill, executive director of the California Democratic Council, said a major goal is to organize liberals In each state to seek party offices. At issue In some of the races, he said, "was the alienation of youth and minority groups from the party system." The coalition has always sought to "open up the Democratic Party so they can participate . . .," he added. Hill estimated that "new coalition" groups were currently at work in at least 34 states. In Alabama the liberals have formed their own party the National Democratic Party of Alabama. Its chairman is John Cashin of Hunts-ville. "Mayor (Richard J.) Daley just about ruined the Democratic Party in Chicago," Cashin said. "But, we've already started building a grass roots organization here to take t he-party away from the old-line iff Ls.-J u 3 . ff control of the party following Tuesday's defeat in the presidential election.

Nixon's victory as a mandate to "revitalize and liberalize" the party. "It's a terrible price to have to pay to have Nixon as president," said Mrs. David Carr of Houston, "but the national defeat was given our position a great boost." Mrs. Carr, who began a fight in 1952 against the party's organization in Texas, is one of the liberals aiding plans to seek control of the National Democratic Party. Mrs. Carr was one of several Democrats around the country interviewed recently about the party's future. Those interviewed represented the element that fought unsuccessfully in Chicago to gain a Vietnam plank, urging an immediate end to the war. Dr. Jack Gore, a professor at the University of Colorado, heads a temporary steering committee of the new Democratic coalition, which seeks to pull these dissident Democrats together in a struggle against the existing national party. The coalition, he said, plans to meet In St. Louis on Nov. 24 to prepare for a national "founding conference" late in March. "What we hope to do," said Dr. Gore, "is pull together people from all over the country who are trying, state by-state, to organize new Democratic coalitions . . . where liberal candidates and issues can be formulated like a When Shopping Use P-T Classified 4 PC.
