Advocate (Newspaper) - December 7, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 214 TELETHON! VICTORIA- TEXAS, MONDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1964 14 Cents Resignation Of Burch 6EssentiaP Roiniiey Sees Step Needed DENVER, Colo., Michigan Gov. George Romney said Sunday tie felt that the re- moval or resignation of Dean Burch 'as Republican national chairman "is essential." Romney had been asked whether he (nought Burch will resign. "It is loo early to say. .but after waiting for some time lo see if there was any indication of a program of undertaking lo unify and strengthen the party on his part, I feel that his re- moval or his resignation is es- sential." Burch has called a Jan, 22-23 meeting of the National Com- mittee in Chicago at which he said he will ask a vole of confi- dence and will resign if does not have majority support. Majority Against Romney. said Sunday he be- lieves a majority in the National Commitlee are for the replace- ment of Burch. Gov, Robert E. Smylie of Ida- ho said he presumed that after the criticisms voiced here by unanimous vote of 18 GOP gov- ernors and governors-elect that Burch will decide whether he can "wear the shoe with com- fort" In further direction of tile party. Gov. Tim Babcbck of Mon- tana, a supporter of defeated presidential candidate Barry Goldwaler, said he feels lhal Burch should be given the op- Congo Rebels Win Backing of Russia Joseph Redmon Honored As Top Catholic Layman portunity meetings to demonstrate with GOP National ip- in Committee members that he can work to unite the party again. If he doesn't, Babcock said, Burch should resign. Pitch For Unity This pitch for unity was the central theme of a two-day meeting with a that ended Saturday unanimous statement proposing expansion of the Re- publican leadership mechan- isms to include all elements of the party. The'statement issued by the governors did not call for the ouster of Burch, as Smylie had proposed in calling the extraor- dinary meeting at which he served as chairman. There was controversy among the GOP governors whether the statement they issued implied that they favored Burch's ousl- er. Clear Implication Govs. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York, William W. Scran- ton of Pennsylvania and Rom- ney said this was Ihe clear, im- plication of the statement. The governors' declaration put them on record as opposing "all forms of political radical ism, whether lo the right or to Ihe left." Homncy said on a telcvisior program CBS, "Face the Na tion" lhal he expecle< Burch to approve the statemen of principles which the gover nors had issued. But the Miehi gan governor said this will no be enough. To Decide It will be up to members o the GOP National Committee meeting Jan. 22-23 in Chicago Romney said, to decide whether Burch really supports the gov ernors' position or not.
