You can drive anywhere in the state in three hours. And it doesn't carry a lot of political weight; only tour electoral votes. Yet all eyes are on the Granite State as it holds the nation's first presidential primary of the year. Political pundits and pollsters have traveled the length and breadth of the state for months, following the campaigners, probing the political plasticity of its natives. And with last-minute dropouts and write-ins, the stage was set for the first big dramatic production of the 1968 presidential year next Tuesday. Interest has been primarily on the rivalry between campaigning Republicans, the opposition party. Polls for. the past months showed former Vice President Richard M, Nixon far in the GOP lead -- and they apparently convinced Michigan Gov. George Romney. Romney dropped out of the presidential race altogether barely two weeks before the New Hampshire primary. That left Nixon facing write- ins for President Johnson and his opposing Democrat, Sen. Eugene McCarthy. But suddenly New York Gov' Nelson Rockefeller leaped into the spotlight vacated by Romney. Though the Republican governor is not on the New Hampshire primary ballot and had previously declared he was not a presidential candidate, be announced recently he would accept, a draft for the nomination. This took on added sign i f i c a n c e when Romney dropped out, and a Rockefeller write-in was stepped up in New Hampshire. Fron New Hampshire, the candidates aim at the Wisconsin primary, the nation's second, on April 2. It's followed by a primary in Pennsylvania April Officer Won't Sit On Tins Burglary It was a crime no one -- especially a police officer -- should have to take sitting down. An Indiana State Police sergeant, vacationing in Tucson awoke to find thieves had stripped the bucket front seats 'out of his 1967 auto. The theft was discovered by Sgt. Robert Mercer of Muncie, Ind., who told investigating officers he had parked his auto outside of the home of friends at 4761 E. Fairmount St. Mercer said the thieves broke out a vent window and then unbolted the seats. 23 and in Massachusetts April 30. The District of Columbia, Indiana and Ohio hold their primaries May 7. followed by Nebraska and West Virginia on May 14, Oregon on May 17 and Florida on May 28. California, New Jersey and South Dakota voters go to the primary polls June 4 and the final presidential primary is June 11 in Illinois. In addition to these 15 presidential primaries in which the ballot gives the voter some way to indicate his choice for the nomination, two other, states, New York and Alabama, provide for primary election of national convention delegates. In neither state, however, do the presidential preferences of the would-be delegates appear on the ballot. There are two kinds of presidential primaries. They are sometimes held separately and sometimes one in conjunction with the other. One is the presidential prefer- ence poll in which names of prospactive nominees are printed on the ballot and the voter may mark his preference. These polls may or may not be binding on the convention delegates from the state. The other is the delegate election in which voters choose the actual delegates to go to the national conventions. This year, the Republican convention is to be held in Miami Aug. 5-and the Democrats gather, in Chicago three weeks later. Student PAGE 5 Primary Scheduled Presidential Preference A national student presidential primary will be held at o,000 colleges across the country -- including the University of Arizona. The April 24 primary is sponsored by Time Magazine but will bo supervised entirely by students. A national turnout of 5 million students is expected to vote on the 14-caiuIidaJe ballot. The double objective of I lie primary, entitled "Ohoicc 68", is to encourage students to uike an active part in national presidential politics and to force the candidates to pay closer attention to student ideas. The ballot will include Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, A'elsori Rockefeller, Eugene McCarthy, George Wallace, Robert Kennedy, Charles Percy, ROHM Id Rea- gau, John Lindsay, Mark Matfield. George Romney, Martin Luther King, Harold Stassen and' Fred Halstead (Socialist Workers Party candidate). Students also will vote on national issues concerning the Vietnam war and the urban crisis. Time magazine will tabulate the voting results on computers and release the results to the news media. George Parker, UA coordinator for Choice 08. said all registered students will be eligible to vote. He expects 15,000 students to participate. Camping Classes Start This Week A family camping clinic will be held four consecutive Friday evenings beginning tonight at 7 by the Tucson Parks and Recreation Department and the Southern Arizona Section of the American Camping Association. The sessions will be held at Randolph Park banclshell. Subjects to be covered are "Where to Go in Arizona, "Camping Equipment," "Camp Cooking and Supplies," and "Camp Activity." Primarily for beginner campers, the course is free and open to the public. Volkswagen's automatic stick shift. It's easier to use than it is to say. It's quite a mouthful, isn't it? But once you get by the name, the rest is easy. There isn't a clutch pedal to contend with. And for all practical purposes, you can drive everywhere without shifting. On the highway, you shift once. (This is like an overdrive: you go faster, your engine goes slower, and your automatic bug won't turn into an automatic hog.) TUCSON SCOTT VAN WYK MOTORS 5900 E. Speedway Blvd. And when the going gets rough (like up a ridiculously steep hill),you can shift into low. What could be simpler? One thing: the automa lie stick shift is an option. So you'll have to pay a little more.' But compared to other automatics, i t ' s a bargain. Because with every automatic slick shift, we include a remarkable money-saving device: A Volkswagen.
