Pg… 78 OTHER DEPARTMENTS Pictures to the Editors : LIFE'S COVER: Joseph William Martin Jr., of Nort Ii Attleboro, Mass., occupies LIFE's cover this week for two related reasons: 1) because Washington correspondents, voting in LIFE's Congressional Poll (see pp. 13–17), rated him the ablest U.S. Representative: 2) because his leadership of the Republican minority in tire House is the current sensation of Washington. In two short months he has turned the G.O.P. Minority, long a spiritless and nagging rabble, into a spirited, constructive Opposition. For more On Representative Martin, see page 13.
