FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1963 ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 3A CORLEY SCO LOED FOR ACTION IN TO . New York Republican Says Missourian 'Mixed Politics and Manners' Republican National Committeeman Francis C. Corley of Missouri was scolded for "mixing his politics and manners" by a supporter of Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York today. George Hinman, Republican National Committeeman from New York, one of the Governor's chief supporters for the Republican nomination for President, told a press conference that Cor-ley's announcement of support for Senator Barry Goldwater earlier this week "didn't concern us much." But Hinman, noting that Cor- ley's announcement came when Rockefeller was ending a visit to St. Louis last Sunday, said that he thought "Frank got his politics and manners a little bit confused." Hinman said the Rockefeller campaign organization in St. Louis and Missouri has not been fully formed, and no one has been named to head it. He said, however, that the Governor's supporters were working to set up an organization soon. Conference Opens The press conference was held In connection with a Midwestern regional conference of GOP leaders, which convened at the Sheraton-Jefferson Hotel today. At an earlier press conference, Representative William E. Miller of New York, chairman of the GOP National Committee, charged that the administration of President John F. Kennedy has fulfilled none of the promises the Democrats made in the 1960 presidential campaign. "The present Administration has failed to make good on any promise made three years ago," Miller said. "It said civil rights was its No. 1 concern, but nothing has been done so far. It has not solved the unemployment problem, nor the financial problems of the Government. The Administration has not delivered on the medicare program. Farm Program It promised a better, arm program, but has provided a worse one at greater cost. ."On the foreign front, thare were no Russian arms in Cuba when the Republicans handed GIVING SUPPORT mm over the reins of government to , jng at the Combustion Engineer-the Democrats. The Adminis-, jng Co.. 5319 Shreve avenue. tration failed to enforce the quarantine on Cuba and indicated it would do business with a "Tito" government there. "There was no wall in Berlin when the Kennedy Administra- tion took over. This stands as I a monument to the vacillating j poticy of the Administration. We ; will have plenty of issues in the coming campaign." Asked whether he had a per-: nonal preference for the Republican presidential nomination, Miller said: "So long as I am national chairman I will never express a preference on a presidential candidate. Our job is strictly one of organization. We receive funds from the supporters of all candidates and we must remain neutral." In response to another question, he said he did not think it unusual for a national committeeman to announce his preference for a candidate for the presidential nomination. 'Perfectly Proper "I believe it is perfectly proper," Miller said. "Theyj are free to do so and work for the candidate of their choice Miller expressed confidence that the Republicans would carry Missouri and Illinois in next year's election. He pointed out that Richard M. Nixon was run- nihg ahead of President Kennedy in. both states in I960, until the vote count in the Chicago and St. Louis areas, "where Nixon was clobbered." We have much better organi sations now in Chicago and St. Louis than we had then," he said Both Miller and Representative Robert Wilson of California, chairman of the Republican Con gressional Campaign Committee, predicted election of a Repub lican President and House in 1964. Politics and entertainment will be; featured at the Fall GOP Spectacular at 8:40 o'clock to night at Kiel Auditorium Opera House. A spokesman for the sponsor, Metropolitan Republicans Un limited, said proceeds would be marked for party organization use. Tickets are $5, $10, $25, $50 or $100. Featured performer will be soprano Min)i Benzell, who has appeared with the Metropolitan Opera and in Broadway and television shows. Miller will speak.
