WASHINGTON (\EA> - New Republican Chairman William E. Miller says he lets his wife organize his martinis, hut he has his own ideas about a major reshuffling of his party in lite months ahead.

This recalled the former Dem"- cratic Chairman's intermittent, tendency to rash comment, embar- .passing to both himself and party. Yet ever, the moss critical say Miiler's "fast gun" may yield a steady, profitable harvest of Republican new*. And there's a wide feeling thai his talent for win.sins the enemy is exactly what the opposition party needs to get back into office.
