NW Phone 362-2115, By Harrison Weber MulNKS tiDPA) Mary Louise Smith of Des Moines, co-diainmm of the Republican national commit- tee, will play an important role in determining guidelines for the states in selecting del- egates to the national convention in 1976. Besides being co-chairman of the national committee, she is also a co-vice-chairman of a blue-ribbon committee es- tablished to broaden the base of the Republican party; this committee is known as the Rule 29 committee, after the convention rule that created it. The purpose of the Rule 29 committee, Mrs. Smith ex- plained, "is to take a look at the structm-e of our party and at our rules that say we shall be an open party, broadly based and with equal opport- unity for people of all ages, sex, and minority groups." The DCS Moines housewife is adamantly opposed to any type.of a quota system "like the Democrats had through their McGovern commission." Formulate Report she stressed, "we must find a way to get states to voluntarily open the party doors wider to women, young people, the elderly and h e ethnic and minority ffoups." There are approximately 50 members on the national Rule 29 committee wliich has been divided into five subcommit- tees. AH of the subcommittees have had hearings in various locations in conjunction with regional conferences and in Washington, D. C. The five subcommittees will make their recommendations to the full committee at a meeting in St. Louis on June 15-16 and the committee will then begin the process of writ- ing a preliminary report which must be presented to the Republican national com- mittee by June 30. A final report must be sub- mitted to the national commit- tee no later than Jan. 1 of 1975 and the national committee must act upon the final rec- ommendations within 90 days after receiving the report. Need Guidelines One of the "sticky" prob- lems facing the Rule 29 com- mittee is a rule adopted by the 1972 convention in Miami Beach which says that each state shall "endeavor" to have equal representation of men and women in its delega- tion to the 1976 national con- vention. Both Mary Louise Smith and Iowa Republican state chairman John" McDonald arc members of the subcommittee wrestling with this particular rule. "Our Mrs. Smith observed, "is defining what endeavor means. It doesn't say must, it says endeavor. We must come up with some guidelines that will assist states in avoiding challenges. "No one wants quotas and this is the nearest we come to anything resembling a quota. "If a state, for example, had a delegation comprised of 70 percent men and 30 percent women, the delegation might face a challenge. What Rule 29 is going to have to do is come up with guidelines, like a laundry list, showing that the state lias done these things and has made an ef- fort; otherwise, we could have challenges Mrs. Smith said. "The rule doesn't say a state must have 50 percent men and 50 percent women, it says you must endeavor to have equal representation; that's the problem we're faced with in devising she added. Mrs. Smith, who is also Iowa's Republican national committeewoman, i s very Mother, Son Die in Fire; Others Escape MILO Milo Woman and her year-old Son died of smoke inhalation Sunday when fire swept through the house they shared (with eight other family members.
