commentaries about this years two party con ventions which I covered as a reporter seems to have created the impression that I would like to do away with this institution Here and now I am entering my denial of any such wish on my part I would like to see some changes such as eliminating the hoopla reducing the time from four to five days to two or three and cutting down the number of i delegates and half by at least half in the case of thej Republican convention and two thirds or more in the case of the Democrats with their half votes But to do away with the party convention with its century and a third of tradition would be like amputating a leg to cure a bunion It would be unthinkable unless and until somebody came along with a plausible alterna tive And that just hasnt hap pened yet MONTANAS SEN MIKE Mansfield in a talk before the upper house shortly after the two conventions this year men tioned the possibility of a na tional primary I say mentioned the possibility because it wasnt quite firm enough to be classi fied as a suggestion much less a proposal The mention came after he had pointed to a number of the shortcomings in the convention setup the signwaving she nanigans the long dry speech es the advantages accruing to those with unlimited means and all the rest Then a bit gingerly he toyed With the idea of a national pri mary based on a limited cam paign with the expenses of bona fide candidates to be borne out of public funds with rigid limi tations on personal expendi tures by the candidates or sup porting friends or groups There could be no greater safeguard of the public interest and the public purse the Mon tanan observed than to place public officials under full finan cial obligation to and in the full financial control of all the peo ple of the United States rather than a few AND HE ENDED UP suggest ing a need to examine the problem a suggestion in which I concur wholeheartedly But Im quite sure such examination would not lead to substituting a national primary for national party conventions Those in charge of both con ventions this year virtually turned themselves inside out trying to provide the most com plete TV coverage

this solicitude for the millions of TV times at the expense of dele gates and others in the conven tion halls was the source of widespread disgust by that same TV public in what it saw and heard The
