CED has had a research committee under Jervis J Babb ot

It firtds that there are 192 metropolitan areas of 50,000 or

is 120 million, or two-thirds of the U.S. total.
ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL DIFFICULTIES in the metropoli-

They believe he can make votes
by calling again for his proposals,

As for the campaigning time lost,
it is axiomatic that September and

Caution and reason suggest that

— are not too likely to loom large.
By BRUCE BIOSSAT
Of late some observers have de-
veloped the habit oi referring to
j Vice Presidi nt Nixt, nand Sen
John Kennedy, thi majoi parly
presidential nominees, as prime
examples ol the "organization
In plan fact they are just exactly
the opposite of lhat.
The term "organization man"
was coined to di- eribe the man
who i-. pressed into the business or-
ganization mold so completely thai
even Ills M-' i-d Ufe i Ihus domin-
ated. He is the man who follows
rules set by others, and lets others
make the decisions.
Neithei Nixon nor Kennedy fits
that description in any degiee. nor
has he evet llolti men me makers
of organizations, not members and
followers. There is a vast differ-
; Both are strong individualists,
• gifted decision-makers, imagina-
j tive, resourceful, with a affinity foi
If either were in fact an "organi.
zation man. he would not today lie
the presidential nominee of his
party. For winning those nomina
tions calls for the use of talent:-
which the cog in ihe machine does
Examination of the Nixon and
Kennedy careers shows conclusiv-
ely that each man has from the
start pursued a distinctive course.
In Kennedy's 14 years in politics,
he has at all lime sheld himself
apart from standard organization
politics. The organization which
won him the Democratic nomina-
tion vvss one he built on his own.
In Nixon's six years in House and
Senate, he quickly carved a sep-
arate niche that made him a fav
ored choice for the 1952 vice pre-
sidential nomination. His eight
years in the Elsenhower admini-
•tiation have found him remark-
ahlv building individual stature and
influence while serving as second
man in the President's shadow .
Kennedv and Nixon are boih men
with high skill at organization.
Those who think that this makes j
them "organization men' do not
read very well.
It is die country's pood fortune
thr.t both are about as far from
that as It is possible to be.

State legislatures controlled by rural counties that have small
sympathy with city problems make solutions next to impossible.
Where there are a number of political entities m one metro-

So they rush to Washington.
Senator Joseph S Clark iD-Pa.) has been backing legislation
