National Chairman Bush's Goal Is GOP Control Of Congress WASHINGTON (AP) -- As head man In a party that carried 40 states j In the presidential election put remained « congressional minority for the 10th straight time, Republican National Chairman George Bush has an obvious goat: GOP command of , Congress aftor 1974. In the month since he took over the GOP chairmanship, the handsome, 48-year-old New Englunder-turned-Texan has moved to make that his committee's majority activity, with the congressional races the principal focus for the next 21 months, "The President, I think we'll all concede, did remarkably well and got voles from people who had never voted Republican before," Bush said in an interview. ' "Nqw, ou« job'(Silo see'that some of those people that never Voted Republican before they voted for Nixon will vqte for other Republicans,''' he said. Bush was picked for his job by Nixon m the wake of con- trovery over the way the president conducted the 1972'cam- paign. Bush moved from the United Nations ambassadorship to replace Sen. Robert Dole, R- Kan., who was one of those complaining that the White House concentrated on the Nixon campaign to the neglect of "Some say President Nixon li not Interested in politics any more,... That just couldn't be further from the truth," Bush added. NEUTRAL Acknowledging that the party las diverse elements that may be feuding by 1976, Bush says he will keep the GOP machln. cry neutral. "I don't want It to appear that there's a bias toward a philosophy," Bush said. "The President puts a strong imprint on the party and out of this Imprint there will be major positions taken, and they will be defended and articulated by me and others here.

"Now President's interests and the the the Nostra, its various squabbles and the "family" resulting gofnif to try to divide the party by , defining narrowly what good Republican is, because a good Republican In New York might have a certain different slant on things than a good Republican In Texas or In Wisconsin or In Callfornia.,."We're going to stay out of the presidential thing In '76," Bush added, "And U a man Is appointed to party office from a state ahd there happens to be a potential presidential candidate from that state, I want it run so fair ly that nobody's going to be able to conclude, 'Ah, this proves the committee Is going lo be tor Jones or Smith,' be cause it's not going to be." Bush concedes that winning control of either house of Congress in 1974 is not going to be easy. He said both he anc Democratic Chairman Robert Strauss, a fellow Texan, have their work cut out for them. "I've got more difficulty than Strauss in the sense that we're dealing with smaller numbers o f registered Republicans across the country," Bush said "He's got an advantage on that. I've got an advantage- because I think the presidency under Richard Nixon is a plus factor for the party. And I don't think the party is divided like the Democratic party."

REORGANIZING To thife end, Bush has moved to reorganize the party's political arm' by: --Balancing differing ideqlO' gical viewpoints by naming Harry Dent, a South Carolina conservative, as party counsel; Rep. wyiiam Steiger. a Wisconsin moderate, as head or a commission on convention delegate selection rules; Janet Johnston, a California political ally,of pov.

The book has been fashioned into a two-hour movie that airs tonight on the CBS Television network. For some viewers, this may be an offer they can refuse. Others may give it a try if they've enjoyed Talese's fine, real-life account of the affairs of Salvatore "Bill" Bonanno and his flather, Joseph "Joe Bananas" Bonanno, the latter listed in government files in 1%3 as head of his own Cosa Nostra family here. But a warning: After movies like "The Godfather" and "The Valachi Papers," "Honor Thy Father" comes across as just another Italian "Our Gang" tragedy. It is suggested, should you watch it, that you have a copy of the Talese book at the ready. It's a necessity if you are to keep ttack of the assorted "family" references that zip hy faster than one can say fettu- cini.
