Congress

faces

WASHINGTON (P)-The 92nd
Congress, featuring some new
faces but many of the same old
problems, convenes Thursday for
what promises to be a strife-
ridden session spiced by presi-
dential politics.
With the Democrats in control
and hoping to unseat President
Nixon, the new Congress is ex-
pected to be a skirmishing
ground in preparation for the
1972 election battle.
There are some internal
struggles to be settled first,
however, starting with a contest
for House speaker, a hard-fought
contest in the House for Demo-
cratic leader, and possible lead-
ership contests in both parties
in the Senate.
Although Carl Albert's nomi-
nation for speaker of the House
was expected to be uncontested,
Rep. John Conyers of Detroit
announced his candidacy yes-
terday. Conyers charged that
Democrats will not live up to
promisesagainst racial discrimi-
nation in politics if Albert is
House speaker.
Conyers said he thinks he has
as much chance of winning as
Harry S. Truman did of being
elected president in 1948, but
said it is too early to tell how
much support he has among
House Democrats.
Besides the leadership con-
tests, House Democrats must
handle a challenge to the

leadership

c
battle
The proposal to permit deba -
to be cut off by a three-fiftlhd -
majority instead of a two-
thirds majority will probably
be filibustered. But .vith memo-
ries still fresh of the Seme
struggling with five filibusters
last month as it tried to ad-
journ, sponsors of the proposal
are hopeful of success.
Once the legislation starts
moving to the floor in the House
and Senate, the zsounds will
also be familiar. Such leftovers
from the 91st Congress as
funds for the supersonic trans.
port, President Nixon's welfare
reform bill, a Sociay Security
increase and trade iegislation
will all be warmed up and
served again.
Congress may be replaying
also its role in a threatened na-
tional railroad strike. An emer-
gency bill passed last montl
banning a strike expires March
1 and if new legislation is not
passed the unions will be ftreet
shut down the nation's rail sys-.
tem.
Action will also have to'l
taken fairly early in the sessien
on some key programs due to
expire June 30, among them the
draft and the antipoverty pro-
gram.
But, President Nixon will .get
to fire first in his duel witl
Congress when he sets forth 1is
legislative program Friday night
in a State of the Union address.
Udall's hopes. of being elected
House majority leader wer-
boosted yesterday by the sup-
port of potential candidate, Fd
ward - P. Boland.
A spokesman for Boggs said
the move by Boland of Massa.
chusetts had been expected and
made no difference in Boggs
calculations.
He is claiming -roledges of
more than120 votes on the first
ballot. A majority is 128. Udall
is claiming 94 first-ballot votes,
and many. pledges *of seon
choicemafter other candidates are.
eliminated.
Boland's decision strength-
ened speculation that _Udall, if
named leader, would support
him for whip, or assistant lead-
er, the post held by Boggs.
The whip is appointed by the
majority leader with the con-
currence of the speaker.

Rep. John Conyers Sen. Hale Boggs

Mississippi delegation's status
as party members and proposals
for changes in caucus rules and
procedures including a number
aimed at the seniority system.
Conyers, who is leading the ef-
fort to deprive the Mississip-
pians of party seniority, said
yesterday at a news conference
he is opposing Albert because of
what he called Albert's equivo-
cation on the challenge.
He said Albert told him he
would neither support nor op-
pose the effort, based on the
contention that the re-elected
congressmen did not qualify as
candidates with the biracial
group that was recognized at the
last Democratic national con-
vention as representing the na-
tional party in Mississippi.
In addition to the contest fo:
House speaker, five Democrats
are fighting for the key post cf
majority leader.

Months of intense campaign-
ing is believed to have narrowed
the field to Reps. Hale Boggs
of Louisiana and Morris K.
Udall of Arizona, both of whom
predict victory.
But the other three candi-
dates, Reps. James G. O'Hara of
Michigan, B. F. Sisk of Califor-,
nia and Wayne L. Hays of Ohio
refuse to concede anything and
a series of ballots will probably
be needed before anyone gathers
a majority.
Under the rules of the contest,
the low man will be dropped after
each ballot u n t i l someone
achieves the 128 votes needed to
be elected.
If, as is expected, it comes to
a showdown between Boggs and
Udall, the contest will then pit
the regular and old guard Dem-
ocrats against the younger re-
form-minded members.

Sen. Howard Baker
Boggs, a 30-year veteran in
the House, is now the Democra-
tic whip. His strength is main-
ly among the Southerners, the
committee chairmen and the
senior members. Udall, 48, a
brother of former Secretary of
the Interior Stewart Udall, has
served in the House 10 years and
has built up a following among
the newer members.
In the Senate, Republican
Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsyi-
vania faces a possible challenge
from Howard H. Baker Jr. of
Tennessee. Scott's failure to
support the Nixon administra-
tion on some key votes last year
has antagonized some GOP
regulars, but Baker has not yet
decided whether to challenge
him.*
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of
Massachusetts also could be op-
posed in the Democratic caucus
in a bid for re-election as whip.
Sen. Robert C. Byrd of West
Virginia is thinking of running
against him.
W h e n Congress formally,
opens on Thursday it will be on
a familiar note in the Senate-
a fight to change the rules to
make it a bit easier to cut off
a filibuster.
