Patronage to Bring New Faces to Capitol If GOP Gains Control By DILLON GRAHAM WASHINGTON UV- U the Repub- [Scans gain control of Congress in the November elections, there are going to be new faces outside the intfl and House doors as well ag inside the chambers. Fact is, there'll be lots of new peoplo all over Capitol Hill. The reason: patronage. Many of the jobs on the hill- doormen, pages, police—are patronage. And the party in power gets them. Whichever party has a majority in the House or Senate controls the patronage on that side. One Capitol veteran familiar with the system told a reporter: "If the Republicans gain a majority in the House, I look for at least a 75 per cent turnover. It won't be quite as drastic on the Senate side/' Take the House: There are some pretty well-paying patronage jobs—approaching $9,000 a year. The journal clerk, tally clerk and bill clerk got close to this. These are probably the juiciest patronage plums. The Capitol police draw $2,900. There aro 73 on the House tind 3' OH the Senate side. They work around the clock in three shifts. The pages, in their white shirts and blue serge trousers get $2,100. Pretty good for youngsters. Patronage is doled out by a three- man committee, named by speaker. Right now Rep. Franc I Walter of Pennsylvania Is.chai s | man. The others aro Reps. Broo/l Hays of Arkansas nnd Harry she* ] ?ard of California. <. Each member of the major! r party is entitled to patronage, B* seniority counts heavily and son[ members have several positions their disposal. Some prefer one of the bet, paying assignments. Others W. i ther have several of the lesse paying jobs to apportion out, member finds out from the patro ago committee what job he's e titled to. He then selects his rm and the committee the a pointment. A ft*w employes are so capab and well-liked that they contlnu under Democratic and Republic? majorities. Elmer Lewis, for i stance, has been superintendent the H ous e Doc y m ent Roo m f more than a quarter-century. Some jobs are elective by tl I Senate and House rather than pomtu'e through patronage. The 1 include the clerk of the House at j the secretary ol the Senate, tl j sergeants at aims, the doorkeepe: I and the postmasters.
