Kenneth B. Keating and possibly Democrat Robert F. Kennedy. The two committee members wired National Chairman Dean Burch, threatening to withdraw support of he national ticket headed by Sen. Barry Goldwater if Goldwater's supporters in New York continue to back Mrs. Luce and 58 Conservative candidates for lesser offices. In Buffalo, Rep. William E. Miller, Republican vice presidential candidate, said neither he nor Goldwater controls the Conservative party. "They presume that Sen. Goldwater and I can control the Conservative party and we can't." said Miller, in a hospital interview. He is undergoing a three-day physical checkup. Kennedy's still unannounced candidacy gained momentum at the Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City, N.J. Kennedy resigned as a delegate from Massachusetts, obviously preparing to enter the New York race. His announcement is expected Tuesday. Mayor Robert F. Wagner and United Nations Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson made statements at the convention backing Kennedy. Wagner endorsed him last Friday, but evidently wanted to knock down reports that his support was reluctant. Rep. Samuel S. Stratton of Amsterdam apparently was still planning to fight Kennedy for the nomination at the state convention on Sept. 1. A group of Stratum's upstate supporters in the Liberal party met in Saratoga Springs, but failed to say they will buck that party's probable nomination of Kennedy. The Republican-Conservative tug-of-war over Mrs. Luce, former Republicar congress-woman from Connecticut and ambassador to Italy, held the spotlight. The telegram to Burch was signed by National Committeeman George L. Ilinnan, one of Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller's closest associates, and Dorothy MeHugh, the national commit-teewoman. Burch said in Washington he had no immediate comment on the telegram. A highly placed source in New York State said Rockefeller saw the telegram before it was sent and approved its content and tone. ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Democrats began opening the curtain on their 1964 convention today as they moved to pledge fair enforcement of the Civil Rights Act and to denounce lawlessness on either side of the fight. While the Platform Committee hammered out tins plank, peacemakers worked backstage to cool off the most heated dispute. The Credentials Committee sought to find some compromise that would satisfy, if not please, both. Southern states and civil rights supporters in the row over seating the Mississippi delegation.

Barry Goldwater carried his views on campaign issues to leaders of business and industry today after a word to the farmer: "Price support programs should be voluntary." The Republican presidential nominee planned to fly to New York for a private reception and dinner with business men and trial leaders. A spokesman said Goldwater wanted to outline his stand on foreign and domestic issues, and answer businessmen's questions. Goldwater turned his attention to agriculture Sunday in a statement declaring the goal of the Republican party is "a free and prosperous American agri culture with a minimum of fed eral controls and interference. "The Republican party is the farmers' part y," Goldwater said. We will resist all efforts to make the farmer dependent, for his economic survival, upon either compensatory payments by the federal government or upon the whim of the secretary of agriculture. "Price supports should be de signed to help farmers achievt orderly marketing within the framework of our dynamic American market system. Price support programs should be vol untary and should be estab lished for specific commodities in order to widen markets, ease production controls, and help achieve increased family in come," Goldwater said. Goldwater denounced the program for wheat farmers put into effect this year. He said the Republicans would repeal what he called "the administration's wheat certificate 'bread tax' on consumers, so burdensome to low income families and over whelmingly rejected by farm ers. "This program has become a nightmare under massive mismanagement of the Johnson-Freeman administration," Goldwater said, referring to the President and Secretary of Agrictulture Orville L. Freeman. . w a-iv A 'jf L 'V' tit m : - - Pleasant Valley Burglary Thwarted Relio Pagni, left, examines weapon used by brother Roy, who explains how he used the weapon to wound a man he said was attempting to open the safe of the Pagni's Club Jubilee in Pleasant Valley early this morning.

Answers to Questionnaire Rouse Suspicions in Clark LAS VEGAS (AP) The Clark County jury commissioner's office suspects that a Las Vegas baggage clerk does not like to serve on juries. They got that feeling when they read Ralph M. Hove's answers to their standard questionnaire for prospective jurors. The commissioner's office said it went like this: ' "Name: You have it. "Permananet address: None "Occupation: None. "Do you have a mental or physical disability that would prevent you from serving as a jurorj Biased in every way. "Doctor's name: Young Doctor Malone. "If you are entitled to a legal exemption from jury duty, do you intend to claim it?: Call me any time. Hove's application will be turned over to a district judge to see what can be done about it, a spokesman for the jury commissioner's office said. Three safecrackers found out early this morning that the Jubilee Club in Pleasant Valley is a somewhat less than pleas ant place to pick for a burglary. One man was shot In the leg, and captured, and two others were taken into custody as the result of a safecracking at tempt at the club, owned by the Pagni family. And, when Washoe County sheriff's deputies arrived on the scene it looked like "an armed camp," they said, w;ith four Pagni brothers, Relio, Roy, Bill and Albert, along with father Attilio, standing around with shotguns and pistols. Roy Pagni told the deputies the family had suspected several men had been "casing" the club for the last several days. Roy said he locked up at 4 a.m. and he and his wife had driven to Carson City, returned almost immediately to find his father and brothers outside the club. They told him there was someone inside and a car parked across the highway in the Pagni brothers service station lot. There were two men in the car, he said, and he searched them and then told them to stay where they were. Roy said he let himself into the club and found a man trying to open the safe. He challenged the safecracker and the man reached for his pocket where, Pagni said, he could see the butt Df a pistol protruding. Pagni said he shot the bur glar in the leg and disarmed him. The two men in the car fled in the vehicle. A car carrying two men was stepped at the Reno city limits at a roadblock which had been set up by Reno police officers at the request of Capt. Frank Cole of the sheriff's office. The occupants of the car were tak en to Reno city jail, then transferred to the county jail. Charles Eugene Hayter, 31, is in Washoe Medical Center in satisfactory condition with a gunshot wound in his right leg. Paul T. Tomlin, 52, and Hol-lis W. Queen, 48, are in jail. All have been charged with burglary. For the Pagni family today it's business as usual. They've captured would-be burglars on several previous occasions. Bible Backs Cannon Action On Intertie Exemption At Test Site Challenged Nevada has lost more than one million .dollars in taxes from one source over several years because of a faulty legal opinion, Ormsby County assemblyman Archie Pozzi charged today. Pozzi said the revenue was lost because the Attorney General's office advised the tax commission in 1955 that the prime contractor at the Nevada Test Site was tax exempt. Because of this the prime contractor has made purchases of personal Sen. Alan Bible is giving no comfort to Sparks Councilman William Gait in his campaign United against incumbent Sen. Howard W. Cannon. Bible said today that a tap to provide additional Pacific North west-Pacific Southwest Power Intertie powder to northern Nevada "was not contemplated" in negotiations. CHARGE MADE Gait charged Saturday that Cannon had refused to support Bible in attempts to get more usable power for Nevada by tapping the DC line with a 530 million converter. Gait said that Cannon's re- (Turn to Page 6, Col. 5) property', leased autos and engaged in other transactions while working at the test site without paying appropriate taxes, Pozzi said. The Republican assemblyman first challenged the right of Reynolds Electrical and Engineering Co. to a tax exempt status last May and the legislative commission asked the tax-agency to review the situation. SHOULD PAY TAXES Pozzi based his challenge on opinions written by legislative counsel Russell McDonald that Reynolds should pay sales and use taxes, motor vehicle fuel taxes, vehicle privilege taxes and license fees. McDonald said in his opinions that under his construction of the contract, believed to be in effect between Reynolds and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) the firm is not exempt from state taxes. The attorney general's office has now also suggested the tax commission re-evaluate and reassess the tax liability of contractors doing business with the States, particularly! AEC URGES CONFERENCE The chief deputy attorney Youthful Mobs In Viet Nam Sack Buildings SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) Youthful mobs in Saigon, Hue and Da Nang sacked and burned buildings today in the worst outbreak of organized rioting in South Viet Nam since last summer.

STONE BARRACKS In Da Nang, South Viet Nam's second largest city, more than 1,000 howling youths stoned a U.S. enlisted men's barracks as antigovemment demonstrations took an increasingly anti-American tone.
