have been agreeing for months privately about the sore need for a representative leadership group to speak for and sym bolize the Republican party Meetings have been held ideas f o r m u 1 a t e d tables pounded but nothing tangible has happened yet The roadblock isin Congress It is not unusual for a partys congressional leaders to visu alize themselves as THE party and therefore no surprise that chieftains of the Republican minority balk at the very thought of outsiders poach ing on what they view as their prerogative to speak and act for the party Of course making the partys record in Congress is for bet ter or worse their responsbil ity But notwithstanding the im portance of Congressmen there is vastly more to the toplayer leadership of a political party even one out of power than its contingent on Capitol Hill The shepherds of the Repub lican minority can claim the right to represent onlya seg ment of the party membership segment that is relatively smaller even than its under sized flock of Senators and House members Certainly they cannot speak for the 16 Republican governors hundreds of Republican sheriffs and other state and local officeholders the party organizations

Show Republicans have reasons to be grateful to Ev and Charlie for their tireless con scientious and usually effec tive direction of the partys con gressional affairs They are authentic spokesmen for their respective domains But the national parly is badly in want of a more repre sentative policy leadership and a more appealing public relations front The Democrats had a some what similar problem a hah dozen years ago After Adlai Stevensons defeat for President in 1956 a boardbased Demo cratic Advisory Council was created to function as the voice of the national party A main objective was to keep the mostlySouthern leadership in Congress from being projected as the image of the national party This bold venture caused great controve rsy Congressional moguls jealous of their claimed prerogatives to be THE party kicked and fussed But the council which in cluded former President Tru man Stevenson govern ors mayors party leaders from every section and also Con gressmen held firm and pro spered And so also did the Democratic party After Sen Kennedy a council member was elected president most of its membership which by then had become a sort of shadow cabinet was taken into the new administration Many ranking Republicans believe it is essential now for their party to have an organ ization somewhat like the Demo cratic council as the recognized policy maker and spokesman for
