July 14— (IT)— Senator Martin (R-Pm) indicated today that Rep. Hugh, Scott, Jr., will step down as Republican National chairman "If we gel assurance an outstanding man will take his place." Martin uld, however, that he, 9cott and other Penn&ylvanlans 'are not golnr to be shoved around" jy those who rant someone else In the key GOP post. "There is no use talking about Scolt moving out until we are sure that there Is a top flight man to succeed him," Martin told a reporter. But Martin added "It Is a fair conclusion" that talks about a change have simmered down mainly to a question of who should sucked Scott, rather than whether there should be a new chairman. "If we can get til the elements united on a successor, that will be the wise. :ourse to take." Martin declared. Party leaders have been discussing the matter here and elsewhere for the last several days. After a conference here yesterday, those leaders said they looked for no concrete development for about 10 days. They said there still was no agreement on a successor to Scott. Scott was named to the chairmanship a year ago In Philadelphia. He was the choice of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey. the GOP presidential nominee, and he had the backing of Martin and other key members of the Pennsylvania delegation to the national convention. Wants Change Undentood Since the Republican defeat _. the polls last November, the party has been badly split as to whether Scott should stay on. He won the first showdown In January when the National Committee voted 54 to so in his favor. Marlin made It clear that If Scott steps down, he Is going to insist that It be obvious he was not shoved. "Pennsylvania Is the keystone of the Republican Party." Martin said. "We want to do all we can to advance the Interest or the party. But we won't lie kicked around under any clrcumstaces.
