From Russell To Kennedy

Will, George F.
February 1975
National Review;2/14/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 5, p155
This article discusses changes made in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate in 1975. It is reported that the changes in the House reflect broad, deep-seated, and long-standing dissatisfactions with certain forms of government--with the way certain House committees have conducted business. The changes seem to have more ideological significance than they in fact have. But in the Senate, the significant changes were in the composition, not the chairmanship, of key committees. It is stated that the changes all have to do with a power struggle within the Democratic Party. The changes in the Senate are, far more likely than the changes in the House to produce changes in the government's substantive policies.
