Neighbors Associated Pren and United Press Intertiitlootl Full Lease MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY JANUARY 29 1960 7c Copy o Two SectionsSection A merit plan for pages Spoils system again comes under attack By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau The propos al is to place one of the worlds most exclusive secondary schools on a merit basis rather than the grabbag spoils system on which it currently operates The school is one run by the District of Columbia for the Senate House and Supreme Court pages but the school itself is only part of the picture Rep William S Broomfield RMich would have Capitol pages selected on the basis of nationwide competitive examin ations At present they are ap pointed on a patronage basis Of the 50 House pages for ex ample 45 were chosen by Dem ocrats THE SUGGESTION arises from a recurring controversy James Avery Johnson Jr 15 Chicago was appointed last year to a House page post by Rep Barratt OHara Af ter the boy arrived in Washing ton however it turned out that there had been a mixup and that no vacancy existed Now Johnsons aunt wants to know why no place hasbeea found for him a Negro while two white boys from Chicago have since been put on as House pages The two are appointees of Rep John Kluczynski DII1 and Rep Thomas J OBrien D both senior to OHara Sympathizing with the John son boy five Representatives arranged to have him serve as their messenger at about the same yearly pay that a page receives and they suc ceeded in getting him into the Capitol Page School where he is an honor student THE CAPITOL page system offers in effect an unparallelec practical course in politics anc government The boys have a rare opportunity to study gov ernment at first hand and to meet and talk with the men anc women who make it work There are 50 pages in t h e House 26 in the Senate and 6 in the Supreme Court They at lend their special school on the top floor of the Library o Congress from to 10 each morning They then head for their respective assignments where they run errands and do all sorts of odd jobs anythin from getting a congressman a ham sandwich to calling h i wife to say hell be late for din ner They are paid for thei work which can run six to 12 hours a day about a month Two of t h e Supreme Cpur pages are Negroes But so Tar no Negro has been appointed a a page by House or Senate THE PROPOSAL to put pag selection on a merit system i by no means new The sam sort of method is followed b most congressmen in making ap pointments to West Point An napolis and the Air Force Acac emy The parallel suggestion is us ually made that the page opera tion be run more like a privat school with dormitories refec tories and supervision outsid the classroom At present th pages live in the Capitol neigh berhood in boarding houses apartments or private homes with little or no formal counselj ing or discipline As one observer Neal Stan ford of t h e Christian Science Monitor put it about a year ago when the controversy over the Johnson boy first reached print Properly organized and ser iously supervised the Capitol Frances m ilit ary to End revolt rr JUROR GETS TO FEED HIS DOG Chicago juror Oscar Olson
