"Divisive" is one of the mild er epithets applied to them by such establishment types as GOP national chairman Ray Bliss. "Frankly, Nixon-Agnew was not our dream ticket," the society editorialized recently in its monthly magazine, "Forum." Originally they backed George Romney, but somewhere along the line took an "if-you-can't-lick'em-join-em" view of Nixon. Huebner and Price, who are the society's president and chairman of the board, respectively, have not only assisted in Nixon's campaign but may be tapped for jobs in the new administration. Price admitted that "young people start with an air of skepticism about Mr. Nixon. The burden of proof is going to be on him to win them to his cause. I believe he has every intention of trying to give them good reason to support him." Actually Nixon helped launch the society in 1963. ac cording to Petri, its executive director.

Soon after Illinois gave Nixon his winning electoral -vote margin, champagne corks began popping in his suite. He turned to an aide and asked him to locate Lee Huebner, John Price Jr. and Thomas Petri in the ballroom below and invite them to the celebration. The gesture is of interest because the trio, all in their middle or late twenties, repre Capitol Craves Catalog and nr,v " Cas"a pr,Ces rinhtl By RICHARD V.
