By Dorothy Marks Washington was if americans generally Are marrying More often and enjoying it less is it any wonder their congressmen and senators and other elected officials Are doing it too the question arises because right now in that traditionally most sedate As Well As most exclusive of clubs a the United states Senate a there Are a record number of politicians and their wives uncoupling separating or divorcing. Proportionately the House of representatives Isnit far behind. Judging by the a who hum reception most of these breakups Are getting from constituents according to a random Check of mail received is the offices affected we be come a Long Way baby since Adlai Stevenson in 1952 became the first divorced Man to run for the presidency. A a Happy Fitler Murphy a giving up her Young children to marry Nelson Rockefeller in 1963 was looked on then As dooming any chances the couple had of making it to the White House but probably would not be a major consideration now. Both Ultra right republicans and Liberal leaning democrats Are doing it. Republican rep. Paul Mccloskey of California and righting cop rep. John Ash Brook of Ohio have More in common than the fact they were berth challenging Richard Nixon for the White House this year. Ashbrook a life Long Baptist was quietly divorced last fall before he took the plunge into National politics. Mrs. A a Chubby Mccloskey loyally waited until after her husband won his primary race in California they were photographed together casting their ballots to announce their separation. The candidate says he Hopes for a reconciliation but friends say the separation was programmed by mrs. Mccloskey several months ago when she insisted on taking her examination to become a real estate broker in Mclean va., where she will continue to live with two of their four children still in school there. Mccloskeyy a most ardent supporter in the House Republican Don Riegle of Flint mich., also divorced and has since remarried after he arrived in Congress. Both he and rep. John Ashbrook had mar ried As teenagers and their wives apparently had not survived the Rigours of political life. Divorces among the younger members of the Congress after All. Arentt a Novelty a especially from states like California and new York a but they Are accelerating. The reaction among the Beautiful people to the divorce of new York City councilman Carter Burden and his super social wife Amanda was a so what else is new a the 1970 census reports a 75 per cent jump in the divorce rate since 1960 and current figures inflate that statistic even More. The current rash of separations in the u. S. Senate reflects the National trend. Sen. Harrison a a Peter Williams of new Jersey after separation dating Back to november 1970, announced divorce plans last month saying there appeared to be a no reasonable Hope of his wife had refused for years to move to Washington with the family. Beautiful dutch born Mieke Tunney a separation from californians sen. John Tunney Ted Kennedy s closest Friend in the Senate looks at this moment to be moving toward divorce although her husband too has said publicly he Hopes for a reconciliation. Mieke a Friend said Wasny to enchanted with politics. Sen. Robert Dole of Kansas chairman of the Republican National committee surprised practically everyone including his wife Phyllis by pressing for an immediate divorce following enactment of a no fault divorce Law by the Kansas state legislature. His divorce became effective a Day or so after the Law went on the books. The same kind of Law passed in new Jersey apparently spurred the Williams divorce action there. Sen. William Proxmire and his wife Ellen whose youngest child Douglas is to years old say Only they Are separated but they May simply be waiting out the year required for no contest divorce Here. Proxmire was divorced the first time from Elsie Rockefeller and his present wife Ellen who served As his Campaign manager for his successful i run for the Senate in 1956, recalls that a a Bill a divorce was certainly an Issue with the voters of Wisconsin last year after three years of estrangement sen. Russell i my of Louisiana filed for n Lasyk Stoms in come see our Smock it to me tops we it ready for summer fashion fun with Cotton smocks by Ruth Anne. They look great with lots of things but Best of All with wide leg jeans. Smocks sketched of red Bue Green plaid in Junior sizes it i i of each. Jeans for mors in Plai or brushed Cotton Denim 9.00 toll of. Divorce to marry Carolina Bason an aide to North Carolina sen. Sam Ervin. Several months ago South Carolinas sen. Fritz Rollings left his wife and four children to marry a Young aide he met in the course of a political Campaign. The Eugene Mccarthy both devout catholics Are still separated and no divorce has been sought although the former senator left her in August 1969. Mrs. Mccarthy says Only that As a Catholic she herself would never seek a divorce but would not try to prevent it. There have been other divorces in the Congress in the past a the late sen. Clair Engle of California Harry Cain of Washington Joseph Clark of Pennsylvania a but up until the past few years they were rare indeed. There seem to be a lot of explanations depending upon whom you talk to. Voters themselves have changed attitudes. New state divorce Laws make it More comfortable and cause less unfavourable publicity for officeholders. Betty Friedan the founding Mother of women a lib and herself a Divorcee believes a fall women including politicians wives have experienced consciousness raising on How they have had their lives subordinated to those of their husbands. Wives like Ellen Proxmire and Abigail Mccarthy speak of the strains the necessary Long absences and t h e complementary a rather than team a roles which political life imposes on husbands and wives. They allude to instances where a husbands staff May encourage these separations in furtherance of the Bossy political career. In her recently published Memoir a private faces Public mrs. Mccarthy quotes the wife of sen. Edmund Muskie As Call a the Capitol Hill weekly which he has parlayed from a modest beginning As an inhouse gossip Sheet to required Reading by the 535 elected officials and some 10,000 other staffers lobbyists and even the White House which sends up a limousine to pick up 175 copies every week As they Roll off the press. A look at the number of members retiring voluntarily this year a its some kind of a record there too. The Job has become a killer. The workload and the pressures Are terrific. A congressman has to run Back and Forth to his District. He a always being challenged now and his seat is up for grabs. He has to maintain two Homes. He can to spend enough time with his family.

Its probably not the whole Story but a lot of them say they just think its better for their families to Yudain does no to think one can generalize too much about divorce affecting elections. A sure a Nice gentlemanly or Ladylike divorce. Most voters even in the Bible Belt understand incompatibility a especially if the kids have grown up and left the nest. A but where there is scandal its a different Story a he says. A Republican congressman Bruce Alger a a real charmer incidentally a and his wife dug up so much dirt about each other in their divorce proceedings the voters sit Republican Alger might have been Defeated anyway since he was swept out in the Johnson landslide of 1964. Maine voters also turned Back Republican rep. Peter Garland after a Capitol Hill Romance led to his first divorce and his wife a revelations preceding that action. And although Yudain did not himself raise the subject does anyone suggest that voters would take the a who hum attitude if out of the Blue Teddy Kennedy and Jean announced they were going their separate ways.
