Nixon aw-.ite" today the Republican convention's nomination as its presi-l denlial candidate. Around the fringes of this un- precedcntcdly controlled p a r t y meeting dissident voices cried out in the political wilderness against a Nixon-dictated platform and hisl prospective choice of a running mate. But behind his legions of dele-! gate votes Nixon had the solid, still glamorous figure of President Eisenhower. To roars of thunderous applause, Eisenhower told the convention Tuesday night that his administration had "employed the whole might of our military, economic, political and moral strength to prevent war and to build a solid structure of peace." Passes Baton Then, in passing the baton of GOP leadership to Nixon, his specially trained vice president, Eisenhower added: "if we can be blessed with e x p e r i e n c e and steady leadership in Washington, the possibility of the outbreak of future war will be minimized and we can eventually win the peace." Nixon was in full command of a convention as perhaps no other nomi nee-to-be except a White House occupant ever has been. In the past_a few outgoing presidents like Ttieodore Roosevelt and Andrew Jackson have controlled conventions, dictated their nominees, and hod the final word on platforms. This convention listened to and cheered President Eisenhower. It might bend somewhat to his wish- Stale Delegates Unhappy With Rights Plank CHfCAGO (AP) - Mississippi's GOP convcntvn delegation leader isn't particularly, pleased, nor particularly fcspleased with the new civil riglfi plank in the plat- from due to Xc adopted today. "Our people are not happy with it, of course, but it's less objectionable than what the Democrats did," said Wirt Yerger, Mississippi Republican state chairman and also delegation chairman. Yerger commented after the convention platform committee re-drafted the civil rights plank in face of a demand by Vice President Nixon -- nominee apparent --for one stronger than an earlier draft. After the night's convention session ended Yerger participated in a caucus of Southern delegation leaders who decided that they could take the civil rights plank. As a result they concluded they would seek no roll call on adoption of the platform and to file ro minority report. In Greenville, S.C. Wednesday, July 27, 1960 Price 5c not threaten or entice the delegates. He could only try lo persuade. So it was Nixon who wore the general's stars for the first time. It was Nixon who told the platform committee what to do. It would bo Nixon who chose his vice presidential running mate. Although he put off a final decision unlil after his own nominal lion, the odds were very heavy! Ihat Nixon will pick telegenic! Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., the Soviet-baiting United Nations ambassador, to run with him. There was no certainly that Nixon would get the top nomination without at least the formality of a challenge. Backers of Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, who has made himself a spokesman of the conservatives in the tradition of a Robert A. Taft, were uncertain whether to post his name for a roll call. But Goldwater lold a reporter that if his name were offered as a presidential candidate, he would ask that it be withdrawn. This seemed to eliminate the last possible chance that Nixon would be challenged in any way for the presidential nomination. Demos Belittle Progress Halleck Tells Conclave CHICAGO CAP) - Rep.
