worsening By ROWLAND EVANS JR New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON Thirty four senators are now in or beyond their 65th jear The older they get the more impossible the work becomes Television and the airplane have made it difficult for a Senator to perform his mam function the legislative function without sacrificing the baby kissing func tions There are more babies to kis today than John Calhoun or Daniel Webster ever dreamed o babies to kiss hands to shake speeches to give ceremonials to attend constituents to greet busi nessmen to soothe labor leaders to promise There are political picnics to preside over Chamber of Commerce dinners to be wise at law school forums to shine in church mothers to comfort and believe it or not college and high school theses to give help on Add rt all up as Sen Prescott Bnsh did the other day and it is easy to see why being Senator is no job for an Sen Bush is 67 but he doesnt look it and he doesntact it In one recent weekend stint up in Connecticut he made major speeches at a high school two universities a Republican lunch eon a Chamber of Commerce dinner and a Yale Law School forum on the Common Market among others Late Sunday night wilted to a frazzle he caught a helicopter for New York then a plane for Washington brushing up on Mondays Senate debate on the way In a competitive twoparty slate like Connecticut the political side

SERVICES v FRAMCLIN Tev Atty Gen Will Wilson announced Thursday that Agriculture Secretary Orville Freeman refused o provide a grand jury with a full report on an investigation of Billie Sol Estes that Henry A Marshall made before he mys enously died last June The death of Marshall 52 the first agriculture official to investigate Estes is officially recorded as suicide But the grand ury is investigating to determine whether the cause of death actually was murder A pathologist who performed an autopsy and the exhumed body of Marshall said he thinks Marshall was a murder vic As Sen Mike Mansfield D the other day in j round of tributes to Sen Bush The duties and the work of a senator are becoming neavier with each passing year Its true and lhismay beone of the real reasons why power inthe federal government moves towards the executive branch and the power that remains in Con gress tends to concentrate even more in the committee chairman Senators dont have time for ex haustive study of all national problems What little floor debate there is more for showthan il lumination and persuasion and consequently a Senator is inclined to go along with the President or with the committee chairman The surprising thing about Sen Bushs decision to retire at the end of this year is not the logic behind it but the fact that he is objective enough to seethe logic Its true of course that polls taken in Connecticut showed that Abe Ribicoff was leading Bush in the Senate election next fall But Ribicoff6 margin has been de clining It is also true than Sen Bushs doctor advised him to take it easier These factors werent control ling The controlling factor was the rigorous sevenday work week that Sen Bush spoke of in his statement and his candid belief that he lacked the
