DALECKI ".- TIMES Washington Bureau WASHINGTON --"I hope you're not going away from this town with your tail between your legs, 1 ' a Nixon Administration Cabinet officer told GOP ; congressional candidates at i combination pep rally and political seminar here last week. Like other big-name Republicans at tht GOP Congressional Candidates' Conference, Interior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morton tried to put the best face on what many political analysts believe will be a disasterous 1 election year for the party. The candidates -- jmany of them untested and facing exp e r i e n c e d Democratic in- cumbents -- applauded Morton's declaration of faith in the - President despite the nation's economic problems and Watergate. Talks with a.number of these political newcomers revealec . the Republican campaign stra- --; tegy during 1974 will be to attack the Democratic -majority in Congress and declare them- · selves and their party innocenl of involvement in the Watergate scandal. Most agreed with Morton , when he declared that "people to death of Water- are sick - gate." "Unquestionably the economy · is the number one issue," Baton ' Rouge attorney Henson Moore · from Louisiana's 6th ^ Kressional District said Con hallway interview outside a scret conference campaign strategy meeting. . . · "Infaltion, t a x a t i o n unemployment are what people ';are talking about most," said Moore. "Crime against property ; is the next thing on people's lips in. my district." "People are concerned about the economy," echoed Dr. Ron Paul, an obstetrician running in ! Texas' 22nd District, "People I don't understand what is going on with gas lines and short, ages." · -Aside from a local contro- .' versy involving federal ownership of oil shale property, the :. people in Utah's sprawling 2nd ·; District are also concerned ate Lynn Hilton. FEW QUESTIONS What about Watergate? "I don't get a heck of a lot f questions about it," said Dr. 'aul. "But there definitely is loss of confidence and trust n government, but I don't think t's necessarily just Water- late." Paul, who will be facing an erghl-lerm Democrat, believe: leople's faith in government las also been shaken by economic uncertainty. "I think · the economy is a lot worse than anyone is willing to admit," he declared. Candidate Moore said he lias lot received one question from _ o u i s i a n a newsmen abou Watergate during his campaign appearances. Erntst Norsworthy. one p! .wo GOP primary candidates in Georgia's 7th 1 District, believe." ·here ir, a "credibility crisis" ,n government, but he thinks t is caused by a failure of con gressmen to keep in close con- act with their constituents. His Republican primary oppo nent. retired Air Force Col. Quincy-Collins, claims Water ;ate is not an issue in the Dis .rict because "there are so many other things that are important." Richard. Muzyka, a 26-year old building contractor from District to Presi dent Nixon asking him to ap pear with him on the campaigi trail. "I feel the President, evei though he may be intensely dis liked, should have a chance t explain himself directly to th people," Muzyka said. "A appearance with the Presidcr would also give' me the benef: of tremendous,publicity." Early this' yeair Nixon mad a campaign appearance o behalf of Republian James iV Sparling during .a special elec tion in Michigan's traditionall Republican 8th District. Never theless Sparling lost and th defeat -- ont of five in six spe cial elections involving pre viously Republican seats -- ha cast a dark cloud over GO prospects this year. Can Republicans turn Wate Pennsylvania's llth has already written ,' abou.t inflation, said GOP candi--gate and the economy to the dvantage? . ON INFLATION "On inflation, people have to ecognize that the Congress has ontributed to it by spending egislation passed by the Demo rats," said Georgia Norswor hy. "A veto-proof Congress vould wreck this government." "The Democrats and liberal Republicans in Congress have been fiscalyl irresponsible," declared Moore of Louisiana. "Deficit spending is the rea- ;on for this inflation," claimed Dr. Paul. "Welfare programs and the Vietnam War caused his. Congress has been con- rolled for 20 years by liberal democrats,'» he said. Watergate has "hurt both parties," said Hilton of Utah. ie. said lie has an open mind m impeachment and would vote o impeach Mr. Nixon if the evidence warranted it. "The system is working and :he process established in the Constitution provided for situa- ions like this," Norsworthy said. Other candidates said nci- her they nor the Republican 'arty is responsible for Water- ;a'te.' ; - ' Jack T. Calkins, executive director of the National Republican Congressional Committee which sponsored the four-day candidates school, outline the general GOP strategy. "Be positive," he advised the candidates. "Republicans are seeking lie truth and defending Hie President when he is unfairly attacked (on Watergate). "The roots of inflation come from the Johnson Administration which tried to finance a war without paying for it," he said. "It has been exascerbated by the Democratic Congress that has been busting President Nixon's budget at virtually every turn." Calkins said GOP hopefuls can also blame mujch of the i n f l a t i o n o n "international aspects which are nobody's fault." In addition to charges of failing to be fiscally responsible, Calkins said Republicans Congressional majority for "a failure of leadership" which las resulted in low confidence ratings for Congress in opinion polls.

"He is our father," said Hecor Hugo Castra, a railroad vorker who stood in line for i.ore than 20 hours. "When 'our father dies, you want to ee him." "We are going to support Isabel--she is our mother," he added. LONG LINES The lines stretched lor more han 30 blocks. Many people held blue and white Argentine lags with black crepe ribbons Medical teams treated hundreds who fainted in the long vait. rolling them on stretchers o medical posts for whiffs of oxygen. Loud scuffles broke out periodically when people tried to jreak into the line, but there vas no serious fighting. -When one incident threatened to get out of control, a hundred policemen rushed in. Hundreds of men from the General Con- 'ederalion of Labor helped or- »anize the lines of mourners, and the Peronist Youth worked with the police to maintain order. Rain fell sporadically, but the lines stayed long. "Yes, I'm tired," said 57- year-old Sara de Seleya, a mechanic's wife, after 12 hours ir line without eating or sitting. "But I will wait until my strength is gone because I am very Peronist." The government announced that the bodv would be taken after the funeral Thursday to the chapel at Peron's residence in Olivos, a northern suburb ol Buenos Aires. The chapel wil be opened to the public in two weeks, and later the body wil be moved to the Chacarita cemetery after the Peron fami ly plot there is refurbished. Henderson Band leader Lylo C.

In Congress, a House-Senal Isabel Has Presidency But Eva Had Love Of Argentina BUENOS AIRES, Argentina AP) -- The Argentine masses dored Juan D. Peron's second rite, Eva. His third wife, Isael, has never gotten the adora-. on, but now she has the presi- ency. Eva died of leukemia in 1952 t the age of 33, but her memo- y was very much alive last ear when Peron returned to Argentina after 18 years in ex- e. As Isabel stood beside her usband, students chanted wildy: "Evita, Evita, we feel her Mesence!" Isabel promised at first tc mutate her fiery and beautiful Dredecessor. But she hasn't the emperament, the political flair lor apparently the insatiable ust. for power that Evita had. Evita rallied the working masses behind Peron when oth ,, military leaders of the 1943 coup tried to freeze him out ihe helped him win the presi conference committee will re sume meetings next week on a $25 billion school bill with fea ures which could block or de ay court-ordered busing if ap proved; The court case involves ai appeal of a decision by the 6tl U.S. Circuit Court in Cincinnat that the only way to deseg regale Detroit city schools wa :o include the suburbs in the jusing plan. The outcome couli affect desegregation plans in other northern cities. The case was appealed to th Supreme Court last September The court agreed in Novembe to hear the appeal, and argu ments were heard Feb. 27.

She had an almost hypnotio ower over the working lasses. Eva was at the height of her ower in 1951 when her hus- and, named her his successor, ut pressure from conservative 'eronists and the wary mill- ary forced her to resign. It iras a different story when Peril insisted on Isabel as his run- ing mate last fall. CROWD THRILLED In her last major speech be- ore she died, Eva thrilled a rowd estimated at a million people. Isabel had trouble drawing thousands on her only -ampaign trip through the inte- ior last year. Eva was the daughter o f p a ioor provincial family; Isabel's ather was a middle-class banker. Eva met Peron when she was a radio actress; Isabel was dancing in a cabaret in Pan- ima when she joined the exiled eader. Isabel reportedly is not interested in power and apparently relies heavily on Peron's private secretary, Jose Lopez Rega, who became the most powerful man in Peron's gov- rament. Eva shared power with no one but Peron. When Eva died, her embalmed body was enshrined in labor union building. The military, regimes that earns after Peron's overthrow hid the coffin in 1972, when it was sent ta Peron in Madrid. It is still there. But last week Congress authorized' the construction of an Altar of the Fatherland to house the bodies of the nation's heroes. It is expected to become the final resting place for Peron--and for Eva. It may be up to Isabel to sign the order for the return of her predecessor's body.
