Herb Bateman (R-Va.), immersed in legislative detail.

Robert Borski (D-Pa.),immersed in favors for home folks

Joe Early (D-Mass.), who recently held his first press conference.

Charles Hatcher (D-Ga); Tip O'Neill once said he'd never heard of him.

Dennis Hertel (D-Mich.) backs losers for chairmanships.

Ray McGrath (R-N.Y.), a former phys-ed teacher.

Henry Nowak (D-N.Y.), interested in protecting Buffalo.

Richard Schulze (R-Pa.), interested in protecting mushroom growers.

French Slaughter (R-Va.), uninterested in any public speaking.
