McDonie is the campaign manager of Nick Joe Rr.hall. who won the Democratic nomination for Hechler's congressional seat. Rahell said it was "news to him" if the Republicans were wooing McDonie. Efforts to trace the Republican who reportedly was trying to get McDonie to manage Goodman's campaign were unsuccessful, and Cabell County Republican Chairman Clyde Pinson hadn't heard of him. . . GOP Discouraged By Close Battle Bv Mike Shanahan WASHINGTON (AP) - Some Republican National Committee members say privately they are discouraged and worried about the impact on the party of a down-to-the-wire fight for the GOP presidential nomination. Ten of the 150 committee members who ended a three-day meeting Saturday said in interviews they and other members are concerned about the sometimes-bitter fight between President Ford and Ronald Reagan, and the early elimination of challengers to Democrat Jimmy Carter. Some of that bitterness was evidenced Saturday by Reagan's criticism of late changes in rules governing the selection of delegates at state party conventions. Such a change cost him five delegates in Minnesota. "I have found to my surprise, in virtually every convention that I have visited so far. that there have been desperate attempts to change the rules, and usually to my disadvantage." the former California governor told the Montana Republican convention. "That certainly hasn't increased my spirit of unity." Besides the Ford-Reagan rivalry and Carter's domination, concern also was expressed at the national committee meeting about the party's finances and recent public opinion polls. » * * SOME OF THE MEMBERS, w h o d i d not wish to be identified, said the party's best chance in November is for Reagan to agree to run as Ford's vice presidential running mate. Most members are firm supporters of Ford for the presidential nomination. Reagan has said in recent weeks he would be unwilling to run on a ticket with Ford. And a New York committee member who supports Ford said he would fight to keep Reagan off the ticket. In the final speech'heard by the committee members preparing for the Kansas City convention, the party's chief fund raiser Saturday warned that the GOP is so short of money it might be forced to go out of business by election time. Jeremiah Milbank, GOP finance chairman, said unless Republican officials around the country get busy raising money for the fali campaigns, "we may not have the chance to fight back successfully ) again." \ For the first tie, he said, Democrats running in federal elections will outspend Republicans. Unless there is a repeat of 1972 when wealthy Republicans were solicited for millions of dollars, he said, "this country could indeed then be facing the end of the two party system ..." His appeal was for solicitations of major contributors. "The vast majority of those Republicans who have the wherewithal to give a major contribution are holding back." he said. Milbank said last fall a goal was set for the party to raise $25 million before election day for congressional, senatorial and presidential campaigns. With four months to go until the election he said another $16.5 million has yet to be raised. Other speakers at the RNC meetings referred to Republican polls showing that only 18 per cent of voting age Americans consider themselves to be Republicans. Rep. Guy Vander Jagt, R-Mich., said of the 18 per cent, "11 per cent are wisny- washy." * * * WITH DEMOCRATS already holding majorities in both the House and the Senate, party professionals are growing worried that the margins may be increased in November. They urged Republican candidates to attack the sex scandals and payroll abuses on Capitol Hill which so far have touched only Democrats. Of a possible Ford-Reagan ticket in November, one RNC committee member from a key Southern state said, "It's been the only consistent subject I've heard everywhere at these meetings the topic came up at a regional caucus of GOP committee members from the Northeast, where there was a minority view. George Hinman, a committee member from New York where Reagan is not popular among GOP party officials, said his delegation might withhold convention votes if the former California governor is placed on the ticket, sources said. Hinman reportedly urged Republicans from the Northeast to agree to work against the FordReagan idea, but no formal action was taken on his proposal. Hinman appeared to be in the minority among GOP committee members, especially those from the South, who fear a dean sweep by Georgian Carter, who is sure i) win the Democratic presidential nomination without serious challenge. Editor: Unaccustomed as I am to w r i t i n g to newspapers I feel I cannot let the "All The Men's Presidents " go by without comment. 1 realize that caricatures are supposed to exaggerate defects to make a person look ridiculous. 1 heartily disapprove of this method of depicting our presidents. Goodness knows there is enough disrespect for our government, our laws and our leaders without any further encouragement. If our presidents were as bad as Taylor Jones makes them appear, we probably wouldn't be celebrating our 200th birthday. The pictures are not funny, they are ridiculous and repulsive.
