WILSON WASHINGTON-UPI-The word j that Gov. Nelson A, Rockefeller was thinking of being drafted for j the Republican presidential nomination brought an instant quip at the National Press Club Bar. "That Rockefeller," quipped the quipper, "is the rich man's Stassen." Stassen, he might have quipped, is the poor man's Rockefeller. The governor and Harold E. Stassen are just about all that stand between vice President Richard M. Nixon and the Republican nomination. They face the odds of Horatio at the bridge. Stassen carries card No. 1 in th.e stop Nixon organization. He issued the card to himself in the 1955-56 period when there was, first, some doubt that President Eisenhower could or would seek renomination and, later, some question whether Nixon would be renominated to run tgain with Ike. Stassen finally had to cancel I his own membership in the stop \ able and experienced Califomian, Nixon union and all but eat his j Richard M. Nixon." The conven- No. 1 card. That was during the j tion shortly responded with an Republican, National Convention j enthusiastic renomination of Stas- in San Francisco when the Nixon {sen's candidate. This was a po- steamroller was bearing down on Stassen, threatening to roll him flat. Stassen escaped that fate by a last-minute leap to the safety of the convention speaker's platform.

Stassen moved on further to establish himself in the Republican Party leadership by engaging in some friction with Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. This led to SUssen'i resignation as Eisenhower's special assistant for disarmament affairs. Pennsylvania and Philadelphia thereafter rejected Stassen's candidacies for governor and mayor, respectively. His latest political activity It u a member of the Penns^vaaU delegation to the Republican National Convention. In (hat capacity Stassen is circulating warnings fliat Nixon cannot be elected president and feat the Republicans should get another boy. Rockefeller popped into the stop Nixon picture with his election in 1958 as governor of New York. Any New York governor of any party is automatically likely presidential timber. Rockefeller felt fiie national political pulse last year. The pulse was not throbbing a Rockefeller rhythm so he benched himself, but not quite. Now, the governor says he is willing to accept a draft The Rockefellers are a practical clan. It-would be unreasonable to believe that die governor ; has any real expectation that he will be drafted. But he had to give New York politicos some alternative to Nixon's bandwagon. Rockefeller was in a spot. He offered himself with qualifications.
