Grassroots Republicans in 15 states relieved that Watergate and Richard M Nixon have left the White House are full of ideas about what President Ford should do for their party In a coasttocoast sampling conducted by the New York Times after Nixons resignation statement on Thursday almost every Republican said something akin to the comment of Harold L Jones the Main part chairman Nixons departure he said cleans the air like a thun dershower They also agreed by and large that the major political issue when Watergate beings to fade from public consciousness will be the economy and infla tion The trend of prices they said will profoundly affect the outcome of this falls con gressionalelections Both Robert E Hughes the Republican chairman in Cuyahoga County and Kent B McGough the Ohio chairman said Ford should move as quickly as possible and as vigorously as possible to try to arrest inflation Jerry D Roe the executive secretary of the Michigan party said the accession of Ford who comes from Grand Rapids would provide a dose of adrenalin to his organization But he also spoke of the need for action on the economy a coming to grips with the issues a concentration on the business of government by Ford But some p o 1 i ti c i a n s particularly Democrats ques tioned whether Ford would be able to make any real impact by election day I dont think the economy will be turned around by November commented Calvin Guest the Texas Democratic chairman nor will the country have forgotten the issues of Watergate by that time nor tha failings of Mr Craig Truax of Pennsylvania wh worked in national cam paigns for both Nixon and William W Scranton said The conditions that brought about Watergate remain and must beaddressed As a national entity the Republican party is it is going to have to make a total commitment to alter the system of politics and government that made this possible Unless the Republican Party addresses its own internal and public problems it will go the way of the whigs One of the partys mavericks Gov Tom McCall of Oregon said he considered the party close to becoming totally inef fective Republican candidates he declared are going to have to rise above the partys in capacities In at least two states Republican politicians were so impressed by Fords qualities that they expected his mere presence in the White House to boost the party Jerry Ford will prove so popular as President with his credibility simplicity and openness he will present so fine an image that the people who so badly want a leader will reach out to him said Lieut Gov James H Brickley of Michigan Fords home state Weve been in the valley said veteran House GOP Whip Leslie C Arends of Illinois and we hope to be approaching a peak in November
