16A -June 13, 1976 Sunday Gazette-Mail Char mm Weil Virginia Rhodes Attacks Congress' Performance WASHINGTON (APi - The House Republican leader says members of Congress should be barred from running for president so they would attend better to their legislative duties. Rep. John J. Rhodes of Arizona made the proposal in a new book. "The Futile System." . It is a wide-ranging attack on the performance of Congress under Democratic control. It criticizes Democratic leaders by name. Congress can only be reformed by turning leadership over to Republicans, wrote Rhodes/who presumably would be speaker if this happened. He said the GOP, now outnumbered 287 to 145 in the House, has a realistic chance of taking over in the November election. Rhodes said that if members of Congress were prohibited from seeking the presidency or vice presidency until they had been out of the legislative body for two years, there would be two effects: "First, overly ambitious members would not be distracted from legislative business. Second, individuals whose true motivation from the beginning was to run Rep. John J. Rhodes Bar Congressmen for president would be dissuaded from running for Congress." « * * WHILE PROFESSING friendship and admiration for Democratic leaders with whom he deals as leader of the minority. Rhodes aimed some barbs at most of them. Some of his appraisals: ··Speaker Carl Albert - who had not announced his intention to retire when the book was written - is "an intelligent man who is very fair." But Albert's insistence on seeking the concurrence of committee chairmen "has frequently brought utter chaos to the floor and caused great delay in the passage of key legislation." ··Majority Leader Thomas P. "Tip" O'Neill Jr.. D-Mass., who is so far unopposed to step into Albert's shoes, "is easily one of the most affable men that I know . . . great fun to be around." But O'Neill is also "the most partisan man I have ever k n o w n . . . Tip can be impossible to deal with if you are in the minority . . . He would rather go down in defeat time after time and veto after veto than ever to cooperate substantively with either the minority side or the Republican." Writing before the sex-scandal storm broke over Rep. Wayne Hays, D-Ohio. Rhodes described Hays as a bully - MAKE IT A GREAT FATHER'S DAY SUNDAY, JUNE 20 LOW. UOW PRICES...

But he also said "few members . . . are more valuable and adept in the treatment of sensitive foreign policy matters." * » * THE REPUBLICAN leader argued congressional reform is stymied because too many vested interests, in and out of Congress, have made their arrangements with the present structure and resist any change. Moreover, he contended, the public at large does not understand Congress: "When people visualize the federal government, what most of them see is not the Congress but the most visible individual in Washington, the P r e s i d e n t . . . the Presi- ·dent is Republican and therefore many people believe that Congress must be Republican too." Even one of his own constituents, he said, wrote him a scolding letter under the impression that he was leader of the majority party, and one newly elected congressman asked him innocently. "Just how many members are there in this body'" Rhodes said that despite the present numerical odds against the GOP. "We do not even have to pick up all of the 74 House seats needed to attain the numerical majority of 218 ... Just before the start of the 95th Congress, a number of conservative House Democrats may decide to switch their party allegiance and elect a Republican speaker . . . "If we can pick up 56 seats in November, there may be a group of conservative Democrats who will be g i v i n g serious thought to changing their party affiliation." he said.
