Some be- lieve the Ninth Party Congress will probably be held th'is spring. Speeches by Chinese leade r s have already revealed that a major task of the Congress will be to adopt a revised constitu- tion. Much of the draft of this new document is devofed to glorifi- cation of "the thoughts of Mao Tse-Tuns." the aging chairman of the Chinese Party. The draft, sources said, makes M a o's thoughts and formulations of Marxist-Leninist policies Ihe of- ficial doctrine and gospel of .Chinese Communists. The constitution also formal- ly names Mao's hand-picked heir, Marshal Lin Piao, as his successor when the chairman dies or is forced, by health lo step down from the leadership, the sources said. The draft of the new constitu- tion also says that officials of the party shall be 'selected-by "democratic consultation., and nlppHnn While this formula fis vague it represents 'an imppr'tan.t' 'change-from the 1956 constitu- tion's provision that parly1 ilead- ers should .be elected to "their posts. v.Critizc Process In the COUI'SL Cultural Revolution, supporters of Mao frequently Ihe elec toral process, saying, that if the minority were armed with the correct thoughts of Mao it should prevail ovei the major ity..

The language of the new draft constitution seems, said one source, "to be so deliber- ately vague that'll will make it easier for the people at lop to manipulate the party ap- paratus." The Ninth 'Party Congre s probably will'also be asked to ratify the expulsion of Liu Shao- Chi, the chief of state, from all his parly and governmental posts.

Kennedy's, defeat of Louisia- na's'. Russell B. Long by 31 to 26 vote and Scott's defeat of Ne-- braska's Roman Hruska by a 23 to 20 margin drew mixed tion on whether it would lead to greater muscle for liberals. The immediate .impact was expected to be more psychologi- cal .than practical, however, since the whip in either party has seldom exerted strong influ- ence. It has, however, been a useful stepping stone and Kennedy's victory was seen as a first slop toward a possible 1972 bid for the White House.
