Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania stands as the likeliest immediate suc-.cessor to GOP Leader Everett M. Dirksen, but a power struggle over the next 16 months may determine the ultimate leader of Senate Republicans. Elected Whip Scott was elected assistant GOP leader, or whip, by a acting party leader last week when Dirksen was hospitalized. With Dirksen's deal Sunday, Scolt is considered certain lo seek the post on a ful lime basis. But Sen. Gordon 'Allot! of Colorado, a conservative' who serves as chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, made clear last week he expected a share of leadership duties durins Dirksen's illness.

MEARS WASHINGTON (AP) Ever- ett McKinley Dirksen, he of the tangled mane, the rumbling bass voice which could sooth or taunt or plead, is dead at 73, and the Senate is pausing in tribute to the man who for a decade was leader of its Repub- lican minority. At the peak of his power, dur- ing two Democratic administra- tions, the senator from Illinois fashioned that minority, and his own talent for oratory, drama and political maneuver, into a force which made him one of Washington's most influential figures. Dirksen, ever the showman, was perhaps the best known of senators. "He was an old said Senate Democratic Leader Mike announcing the Sen- ate would forgo business toda: to do honor to Diricsen, who diec Sunday at Walter Reed Army Hospital, five days after an op- eration for lung cancer. Medical announcements hai Indicated he was progressing to- ward recovery. But on Sunday he suffered a cardiac and res piratory arrest Two hours of ef forts at resuscitation proved fu tile, and Dirksen died at p.m. EOT. Nixon Praises President Nixon called Dirk sen a giant in the history of Con gress, a great American, a warm personal friend. "To poli- tics arid government he brough a dedication matched by few and a style and eloquence matched by no political leader in our the President said "He had his greatest moments as the leader of the loyal opposi- tion." The White House said Nixon expects lo attend the funeral. Mansfield said he hopes most ol the Senate will, too. The funeral is to be held at the National Presbyterian Church, and Dirksen's body is to lie in state for one day at the rotunda of the Capitol. He wil! be buried in his hometown, Pe- kin, HI. Final, detailed arrangements were to be made today. Members of Congress, offi- cials and leaders of both parties joined In praising Dirksen and in expressing sympathy to his widow, his daughter, Danlce, and his son-in-law, Sen. Howard H. Baker, R-Tenn. Mansfield said as Democratic leader, he had enjoyed a perfect relationship with his Republican counterpart. "His word was FUEL OIL SAVE MORE With LORDEN OIL CO. IHC.

But whoever moves into the minority leader's front-row desk and inherits his.spacious, rfian- deliered office just off the Sen- ate floor is unlikely to have the power and force Dirksen had accumulated in his 10-year lead- ership. For one thing, the position Is less important now with a Re- publican in the White House than it was during Democratic administrations. Unlike the Democrats, whose leader Mike Mansfield is also lead of the party's policy com- mittee and conference, the Re- lublicans have a more frag- mented set-up. Thus, a collective leadership s possible until a strong man merges, possibly not until after he 1970 congressional elections which could give Republicans control of the Senate'for the first time in 16 years. The choice will be made by the 42 Republican senators- plus Dirksen's successor if he is appointed by a party conference. But .Sen. Margaret Chase Smith of Maine, the conference chairman, declined I to say how soon this might take1 place. When Scott defeated Sen: Ro man Hruska of Nebraska, a close ally of In wha was primarily a liberal-conserv ative fight for the whip's job, most of the younger Senate Re- publicans supported Scott. While they might back the 48- year-old Pennsyhranian for the leadership now, they are likely to leave their options open for the start of the next Congress in January 197L.. _ Less than a majority of GOP On Job Contract Ratified; 3-Day Strike Ends MANCHESTER, N.

Former President Lyndon B who often found Dirk sen a valued ally' on the Senat sent a private message o condolence to Mrs. Dirksen. Dirksen's death left two vita vacancies in the Senate: that o Republican floor leader, am that of senator from Illinois. Sen. Hugh Scolt of Pennsylva nia, 68, is likely to succeed I [he minority leadership on an interim basis. The decision wi) be made at a conference of 4: remaining Republican senators They will, presumably, be ioined by a 43rd Republican when GOP Gov. Richard B Ogilrie of Illinois appoints i new senator. Scott, who had been deputy minority leader or whip, was designated acting Republican eader after Dirksen was hospi lalized. Dirksen, who was elected to lis fourth Senate term less than a year ago, had suffered repeat- ed illnesses, frequently requir- ng hospitalization. He blamed recurrent stomach and intesti- nal disturbances on tension. He also suffered from a bleeding ul- cer, a pinched nerve in his >ack, and emphysema, a lung ailment. He constantly puffed ciga- rettes, tried to quit but never succeeded, often borrowed a smoke from a colleague, an aide or a reporter. It was when Johnson and the ate John F. Kennedy were in the White House that Dirksen's lower was at its pinnacle. Dent ocratic presidents came to' him eeking the votes they needed or key proposals.
