'New' Democrats


A group of Democrats seeking to "revitalize" the party's role in state government yesterday announced the formation of the Democratic Council of Massachusetts.

The planning committee of the council includes George Wald, Higgins Professor of Biology, and Richard M. Neustadt '69. Neustadt, a council spokesman, stressed that the group was "not in any sense radical," and included "nearly equal proportions" of former supporters of Senator Robert F. Kennedy '48, Senator Eugene J. McCarthy and former Vice-President Hubert H. Humphrey.

The primary aim of the council is to "put together a fairly substantial coalition aimed at restructuring the party and improving the quality of government," Neustadt said. The group has already published position papers on state governmental efficiency and reform of the state constitution.
