Iowa Senator Miller listed as one of "least effective" Johnson may agree to medicare compromise Globe-Gazette, Mason City, la. Dec. 16, 1964 WASHINGTON (AP) — A House committee set a public hearing for Thursday on complaints by three members about a magazine poll naming them as among the five "least effective" congressmen. The poll was published by Pageant magazine 10 days before the Nov. 3 elections. The hearing will be conducted by a special committee created to investigate such practices. Chairman Cliff Daivis, D- Tcnn., said sworn complaints were given to the, committee by Reps. Hale B'oggs, D-La., Wayne L. Hays,: D-Ohio, -and Roman C. Pucinski, D-lll. All three were at Tuesday's meeting. The magazine article said a poll of members 'of Congress and the Washington press corps rated the three among the "-five least effective" congressmen.- The complainants said the article was widely used in campaigns against those members seeking re-election. Boggs, Hays and Pueinski all were re-elected. The magazine article said House members listed their five least effective colleagues as Reps. Adam Clayton Powell, D-N.Y., Hays, Pucinski, Bruce Alger, R-Tex., and Boggs. Those chosen by the press, i^other one running for re-clec- said, were Powell, Alger, Reps.Uion. A chief complaint of those named is that no place in the article did the magazine say how many replies it got to its questionnaire asking for such a rating of congressmen. By Congressional Quarterly WASHINGTON — Although hope is running high here for passage of a Social Security medicare plan, there's a possibility the administration may decide to work for a compromise. The Health, Education, and Welfare Department (HEW), which will draw up President Lyndon B. Johnson's health care bill, said the administration is considering not only a program :o be tied in with the Social Security system but also one to separately administered end "inanccd. The later proposal could expect to receive broader support than the highly controversial Social Security plan. The HEW spokesman noted that Rqp. Wilbur D. Mills, D- Ark., the leading opponent of Social Security medical care, had indicated he might be receptive to a plan outside Social Security. Mills is chairman of (he House Ways and Means Committee, which has stymied medicare legislation for years. The HEW spokesman said the President himself probably would make the final decision as to which plan to request from the 89th Congress. Although Mr. Johnson prefers a medical care program under Social Security, he may decide on a compromise r;ither than permit an assault on Rep. Mills, Joel T. Broyhill, R-Va., Charles A. Buckley, D-N.Y. and Hays. A composite five, based on all returns, the article said, were ranked as Powell, Hays, Alger, Pucinski, and Rep. Harold C. Cooley, D-N.C. Of all those named, only Alger was subsequently defeated in a bid for re-election. Buckley, was defeated in a primary election before the poll was published. The article also reported that a poll for the Senate showed the enators naming the "least effective" as Sens. Strom Thurmond, R-S.C., Jack Miller, R- lowa, and in a three-way tic, Paul Douglas, D-I1L, Edwin L. Mechem, R-N.M., and Olin D. Johnston, S-S.C. The press choices as to the Senate, the magazine said, were Thurmond, Miller, Sen. Wayne Morse, D-Ore., and, jn a five- way tie, Sens. William E. Proxmire, D-Wis., John G. Tower, R-Tex., Douglas, Johnston and Mechem. The composite listing, it added, was Thurmond, Miller, Mc- chcm, Douglas and Johnston. Of all those named, only Mechem was defeated for re-election. Proxmire was the only with whom he must deal on many other matters. However, congressional aides reported they expected the President's proposal to be basically the old King-Anderson bill, which calls for a health care plan under Social Security. A medical care bill is expected to be one of the first major pieces of legislation to be considered by the new Congress after it convenes Jan. 4. With President Johnson giving the measure an all-out push j.nd with the big increase in the strength of Northern House Democrats brought on by the election, some type of health care legislation is given a good chance of passing. Supporters, inside and outside the government, are confidently predicting approval. Democratic House Leader' Carl Albert of Oklahoma tells newsmen that House leaders have a plan to gel the measure through the House Ways and Means Committee with little delay. He declined to say how this would be done but implied some changes in House rules or revision of key committee lineups might be needed. He forecast House passage before June. Now it's just P/n/cerfon's, Inc. NEW YORK (AP) — In the old days, the Pinkerton National Detective Agency had a hand in tracking down such notorious badmen as Jesse James, Sam Bass and the Younger brothers. Starting Jan. 1, the world's biggest private police force will be known simply as Pinkerton's, Inc. It wants to play down its private-eye role and emphasize its less glamorous work as industrial guards. Robert A. Pinkerton 11, (he fourth-generation member of his family to head the agency, announced the name change Tuesday. BVIAYTAG ITS AN CHRISTMAS CUSTOM.. Christmas Trees FINEST STOCK IN TOWN!
