Rules Committee Likely To Be Unpacked in 1963 B.V WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Rules Committee, packed last year to give liberals control, probably will be unpacked next year to put a conservative coalition back hi the saddle. ,WEb., AUGUST 22, 1962 i , they will win next January ff the j House leadership decides to bat- ; tie to keep the committee at its present strength. They w o n't ; have Rayburn and a new presi- new speaker. Jnlm W. mack of Massachusetts. 2 year, when McCor-^ime in eight years. 3. Normally, the political party, dent going against them. was new in to jnrur In his last big major legislative ^ available to thorn battle, the late Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas succeeded by a five-vote margin, 217 to 212, in increasing the committee's membership from 12 to 15 on Jan. 31, 1961. The objective was to switch control from four Republicans and two Democrats to eight Democrats. In general, the idea worked out successfully, with many bills clearing the committee by an 8-7 margin. Before the enlargement, major nills often were stymied by a 6-6 deadlock. The increase raised Democratic membership from 8 to 10 and Republican from 4 to 5. But two of the Democrats, Chairman Howard W. Smith of Virginia and Rep. William M. Golmer of Mississippi, often voted with the Republicans. Rayburn had tacit support from the White House in the hitter fight to increase the membership. Often overlooked is the official language of the resolution that brought about, the change. It stipulated that the rules group should have 15 members only for the 87th Congress, which goes out of business next January. Unless the battle is fought anew the committee will drop to 12 members in the Congress convening in January. The combination of four Republicans plus Smith and Colmer would be enough to prevent the six more liberal Democrats from mustering a majority vote needed to clear legislation for a House vole. House leaders haven't decided whether to 117 next year to keep the committee al its present strength. For several reasons the odds now appear to be against, them. 1.
