WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round WASHINGTON - It's interesting that when George Romney had to decide whether to run for governor of Michigan he spent a week in solitary communing with God. Now that he has to decide whether to run for President of the United States, he's spending more than a week communing with New York politicians. Without passing judgment on whether God or the politicians are more Important in George's life, it's interesting to note that one of the politicos he is communing with is Leonard Hall, genial former chairman of the Republican National Committee and the man who did more than anyone else to re-elect Elsen- hower in 1956. Len isapastmasteratpolltlcs. He has put more good men in high office in recent decades than anyone else except Jim Farley. Len has remained on the sidelines as a king-maker, and recently has given Romney some sage advice. He has suggested that he get the support of Richard Nixon by offering him a place in the Romney Cabinet. Dick, It was suggested, might be interested in becoming Secretary of State. - o - - ADVICE TO TOURISTS - More than a million tourists trek to the nation's capital every year, most of them with children. But only one Congressional wife has taken the trouble to prepare a booklet advising mothers on what they should do with their children in Washington. She Is Mrs. Richard McCarthy, wife of the Congressman from suburban Buffalo. The booklet, "What To Do With Children in Washington" and sub-titled "Battle Plan," covers a variety of emergencies for the weary traveler with children, from handy restaurants to sore feet. Here are a few of Mrs. McCarthy's hints: "Don't try to do everything. If your schedule gets ahead of you, just enjoy where you are without feeling pressured. "Children feel much less fatigued if you split up each day of touring, perhaps spending the morning in an institution and the afternoon in an outdoor park environment. "Carry a lightweight, large bag (a knitting bag is great). You'll probably pick up pamphlets, and meaningful souvenirs get lost so easily if children have to carry them. "No matter how 'in' your new shoes are, please put old, comfortable ones in your satchel. You'll be glad you had them with you. "Speaking of cars, you may be better off without yours downtown. Parking is expensive and a bother. ' 'Choose a hotel or motel where it is easy to double back with a tired child who needs a short nap or his pants changed. "If you have anybody under three years old, let him visit grandma while the rest of you tour Washington. - o - - BEHIND BAMBOO CURTAIN- Developments inside China are so chaotic that neither the Mao Tse-tung faction nor his rivals seems certain where they stand. PREW PEARSON On one day recently the group around Mao certified the propaganda chief Tao Chu as a "revolutionary hero." Next day the same Mao faction denounced Tao Chu as a "bourgeois reactionary." On another day an official editorial issued by Peking called for blind obedience to all orders from Peking, whether the orders made sense or not. Then both sides began Issuing contradictory orders. That's why not even those faithful to Mao Tse-tung know what to do or whom to obey. If Mao and his extremists do win out, however, there will be no chance whatsoever of patching up relations with Moscow. If the anti-Mao faction should win, it might be able to restore Russian-Chinese cooperation. Our top policy makers secretly hope that Mao's forces win. - o - - HAZARDS OF SELLING- A Fuller Brush salesman, going from door to door in the Harbour Square apartments in Washington, rang the bell at one door. Suddenly, a stern voice demanded that he show identification. He also found he was on the Secret Service's "candid camera," his every move watched on closed-circuit television. Unknowingly the salesman had stopped at Vice President Humphrey's door to sell him some Fuller brushes. - o - -EXIT AUTO CRITIC - There were denials and counterdenials last week regarding the resignation of William Stieglitz, the safety pioneer with Republic Aviation now working for the new Auto Safety Agency to set up safety standards for Detroit. Despite the denials, real fact is that Stieglitz will bow out of the Auto Safety Agency a few days after the ne-w safety standards are announced on Jan. 31. Stieglitz has been the most uncompromising expert inside the agency in demanding that the automobile manufacturers not be let off the hook on safety standards. Auto industry lobbyists see red at the mere mention of Stieglitz's name. This column reported last week that Detroit was trying to oust him. It has now succeeded. Stieglitz is sitting in an empty office, with no secretary, not even anyone to help answer his phone. He will shortly bow out. G.O.P.
