D4-Palm Beach Post-Times. Sunday, Nov. 24, 1968 Democrats To Initiate 'Reinvigorating' Groups Cities' Troubles Loom As Legislative Debate i chosen informally to succeed 0 Brien but there has been no official word of a change since August. O'Brien said the 31 million . votes for Humphrey and Sen.; Edmund S. Muskie in the presidential election, plus Demo-, cratic retention of majorities in the House and Senate, prove the party is healthy. that the most important postelection business "will be the appointment of these two panels as a step toward guaranteeing the broadest possible participation in Democratic party activities." O'Brien's statement that he would spend "the next few weeks" on organizing the groups left unsettled his immediate future with the committee. Committee sources said he is sticking by his original intention to serve only through the election. The chairman of the Missouri Democratic party, Delton L. Houtchens of Clinton, was isfactory solution to our urban challenges must receive priority attention." But Secretary of State Tom Adams and House Speaker Fred Schultz favor the strengthening of the community affairs division within the Department of State Planning to cope with the ills of urban Florida. The difference between the proposals is twofold. The governor would control the department, under the proposal already prefiled by Myers. Adams' plan is to keep the function under the Cabinet's wing.

Key Myers, other Miami Democrats and Gov.

O'Brien announced Saturday the formation of two new committees designed to reinvigorate the party and point the way toward election victories in 1970 and 1972. O'Brien said one of the special groups will help state Democratic parties be sure all of their members have a voice in the selection of delegates and alternates to the 1972 na-ional convention, while the other will study convention rules with a view to setting up permanent rules for conventions and their committees.

But under Adams' method, the man in charge of the cities would be a third-level administrator responsible to the state planning director, who is responsible to the state budget director, who is responsible to the Cabinet. Rep. Murray Dubbin, D-Mi-ami, sees a third alternative: That the dispute about who would control the function and how it would be handled would not be resolved in the 1968 session. Dubbin, who said he leans toward the idea of a separate department to handle both planning and action programs, predicted that a firm solution could be one session away. In the meantime, the problems of the cities would be handled partly by the governor's office and partly by a new Commerce Department. James Bax. head of the Division of Economic Opportunity and coordinator of Kirk's current attack on urban problems, said putting the problem under the State Planning Department would severely weaken efforts on behalf of the cities. "Rather than burying the department under three or lour levels of bureaucracy.'' he said, "it should be placed at the very highest executive level of state government so it can provide one central point where local governments can come to find answers. "Submerging it is just another way of killing it. It's pork-choppism in its truest sense." Myers said Adams' plan was definitely "a second-choice proposition, not as good as the bill we've prefiled." "What his proposal would do is cubby-hold it an urban affairs department as one function in a hydra-leaded agency," the Miami lawmaker said. "It should be a separate agency. Agriculture is a separate agency and it 's at least as important as that." Scotty Fraser, one of the secretary of state's aides, said staffers of the U.S. Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations told him that either Adams' or Myers' approach would work and has functioned well in other states. .Uetus solve y out Lighting probkmf "WE FEATURE THE FINEST LINES OF LIGHTING FIXTURES & LAMPS AVAILABLE" Zaleshas the ultimate gift for him.

The first to leave just a few months after the administration got underway was John Smolko. Fort Lauderdale newsman who served as Kirk's first press secretary. The governor made him Development Commission director, then allowed him to "resign" in the middle of a legislative investigation into expenditure of commission funds for functions of the governor's office. Another Kirk aide. James Wilson, went to the commission as assistant director, then succeeded Smolko and just this week resigned with an angry blast at two other Kirk assistants. Tom Ferguson and Dick Warner, who he said, tried to force him out because he did not "cooperate." The governor's press secretary Jim Wolf also resigned this week, to join a Miami public relations firm. TALLAHASSEE 1 1 PI i -Claude Kirk will begin the second hall of his four-year administration with a staff greatly changed from the group around his office when he started in Jan. 1967. The "fruit basket turn over" makes it seem more like the final year of a "lame duck" governor rather than the midway point of an administration that is hoping the people will approve a second four-year lease on the executive mansion in 1970. Many of the faces no longer seen around the executive offices are still a part of government, but have shifted to different roles. These include Wade Hopping, once the governor's number two assistant, and now a Supreme Court justice whose brief tenure ends in January: Charles Perry. Kirk's assistant for education, now a vice chancellor of the university system: and Jack Ledden. former coordinator of the governor's "War on Crime." and presently head of the Police Standards Council.
