THE OTTAWA HERALD 11 Wednesday, February 6, 1963 • ' Youth In State House (Editors: This is the first of a four-part series on the top leaders in the Kansas House.) By ELON TORRENCE TOPEKA (AP)-Three men who rate themselves on the political scale somewhere between middle- of-the-road and conservative Republicans hold the top leadership positions in the 1963 Kansas House of Representatives. They are Reps. Charles Arthur, Manhattan, speaker; Ed Boyd, Lamed, speaker pro tern, and Bill Fribley, Crestline, majority floor leader. In age, the three men are comparatively young. But they are long on experience. Only twice in the last quarter of a century has the House had a younger set of leaders — and then by an average difference of less than 2 years each. Nevertheless, Arthur, 45, is in his 4th term. He was Republican floor leader in the 1961 general and 1962 budget sessions. Boyd, 37, is in his 3rd term. Fribley, also 37, is the oldest of the three in legislative experience. He is in his 8th term. He was speaker pro tern in the 195960 sessions. All three say they believe a relaxed, low-pressure type leadership will achieve more in the House than efforts to maintain a ruthless, toe-the-mark type of control and discipline. "I don't care very much about power politics," said Arthur. He said he believes it would be impossible to dictate the actions of the 125-member House even if the leadership subscribed to a philosophy of power politics.
