4A --June 6, 1976 Sunday Gazette»Mail __,. ----Charleston, West Virgin'8--~- Here Are Profiles of Albert and O'Neill WASHINGTON (APi - The retirement of Rep. Carl Albert leaves a vacancy for the House Speaker's post in the next session of Congress, with Rep. Thomas P. O'Neill of Massachusetts as the next man in line for the job. Here are brief profiles of Albert and O'Neill. Carl Albert Carl Albert. 68. the Oklahoma Democrat who announced Saturday his retirement from the House of Representatives, was twice just a heartbeat away from the presidency. As speaker of the House, Albert was first in line of succession twice when the nation wus without a vice president. First for 58 days between Spiro Agnew's resignation and the swearing-in of Gerald Ford. And again, between Ford's accession to the presidency and the swearing-in of Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller. Standing only 5-foot-4, "little giant" in the House, although some freshman Democrats sought to challenge his leadership earlier this year. That move was quickly squelched. Albert What would have happened if he had become president, a Democrat inheriting a Republican administration? "I have my own ideas but I would rather not speculate on that. I would rather not talk out loud a b o u t t h a t because i t might cause me and others some problems." he said last November. Albert was a member of the 1947 freshman congressional class that also included Presidents John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon, He was born in a miner's shack in McAlester, Okla., and was raised in the town of Bugtussle. In high school he won a national oratorical contest and used the prize money to attend the University of Oklahoma, from which he graduated. He also studied at Oxford University in England as a Rhodes scholar and at the University of Madrid. A man of 12-hour workdays, Albert pays close attention to his Oklahoma district and has rarely been seriously challenged. In 1974 he was unopposed in the general election after demolishing two primary opponents. Thomas P. O'Neill Thomas P. "Tip" O'Neill announced April 9 that he planned to be the next ;:·· House speaker, noting / . that he has no opposition '··· ; for the job and claiming the support of 164 House members. H e c a r e f u l l y n o t e d , however, that he was not challenging Albert, only announcing his plans in case Albert should not run. O'Neill has spent nearly 40 years in state and federal government without encountering a significant political defeat and he has collected such large vote totals that the Republicans often don't bother to field a candidate against him. While Albert spends most of his time on the floor of the House. O'Neill is a man who prefers to work behind the scenes, in cloakrooms, comittees and conferences. He helped guide impeachment proceedings against former President Richard M. Nixon. He was born in !9)2 in Cambridge. Mass., the son of the city's water department director and grandson of an Irish bricklayer from County Cork. O'Neill followed his father into active Democratic politics beginning by soliciting votes door- to-door for presidential candidate Al Smith in 1928. He graduated from Boston College and subsequently suffered his only loss at the polls, being defeated by 150 votes for city council. But he later won election to the state legislature, becoming minority leader in 1947 and majority leader a year later. When John F. Kennedy ran for Senate in 1952. O'Neill sought and won Kennedy's congressional post. On the House floor he has generally voted with Democratic liberals and in 1971 he cosponsored a bill setting a date for total American withdraw! from Southeast Asia. O'Neill, in contract to the slight legislator he plans to succeed, stands 6-foot-2 and weighs in at a hefty 250 pounds. He has attended weight loss groups and estimates that he has lost 1,000 pounds over the vears..
