The Fraser River has a tendency to overflow its banks when the spring snows melt, and the district of Surrey, a sprawling 132-square mile suburb of Vancouver, long has lived under the threat of floods. Now Surrey has turned to electronics for help. A computer has classified the community's 83,500 residents, most of whom live along the river, to speed their rescue during the floods. The Honeywell computer knows which residents have their own flood transportation so that rescue efforts won't be wasted trying to reach families already evacuated. It also keeps tabs on persons who have volunteered to house flood victims and classifies them according to such categories as job, income and religion. (Town Talk Washington Service) WASHINGTON - The delegate roster for the 1968 Republican National Convention j shows that less than a fifth of ; the delegates and alternates are ; repeaters from the 1964 conven tion which nominated Barry Goldwater for the presidency. The number of Negro delegates is increased from 1964 up from 14 full delegates at the San Francisco convention to 26 in Miami Beach. But their representation still will be minimal: a mere 2 percent of ! the 1,333 full delegates, i As usual, the delegate rosters j will include not only loyal party I workers, but most of the j Republican Governors and a I number of Republican members of Congress. The convention is scheduled to open next Monday (Aug. 5) in Miami Beach. Repeat Delegates The count of convention repeaters is based on member ship in the 44 delegations first officially certified for the Miami Beach convention. The same approximate percentage o f repeaters is expected to hold up when all delegates are certified. The 44-state count shows 176 full delegates and 193 alternates are returness from 1964 18.4 percent of those states' combined delegate - alternate ap portionment. Thus earlier predictions by some political figures that the Miami Beach delegate rosters would have a preponderance of veterans from the Goldwater nomination have not proven accurate. Only 16 states and territories are sending any Negroes as full delegates to the convention New York (4), Maryland and the District of Columbia (3 each), Arkansas, Illinois and "Cross Over The Bridge To HARRY 9 REX MARKET 312 Main St. - Pineville "HOME OF FINE MEATS."

There will, however, be 52 Negro alternate delegates at the convention, representing 2 4 states and territories. In 1964, 43 Negroes 14 full delegates and 29 alternates attended the Republican convention. By comparison, Negroes will account for more of the voting strength at this year's Democratic convention. , Latest totals show 139 Negroes as full delegates to the Chicago convention, accounting for 4.7 percent of the Democrats' full delegate total. In neither party, however, will Negroes have representation commensurate with their share of the national population. According to the 1960 Census Figures, Negroes represent 10.5 percent of the nation. Credentials Fights The race problem is likely to dominate challenges in the GOP Credentials Committee. Negroes, charging improper representation, are preparing challenges to the Florida and Louisiana delegations, and also may file challenges against the Tennessee and Texas delegations. No Negroes have been named as full delegates from any of these states, though Louisiana named two Negro alternates and Tennessee one Negro alternate. In Iowa, a challenge to the seating of U.S. Rep. H. R. Gross, one of the most colorful conservatives in the House, appears to be in the offing. The charge alleges that Gross was improperly substituted for another delegate at the Iowa GOP convention. Unofficial counts show that 20 Republican senators and 59 Republican House members will be delegates at Miami Beach. 23 Governors Of the nation's 26 Republican governors, all but three will attend the convention as delegates. The exceptions are New York Gov. Nelson A. Rocke feller, who will be attending as a presidential candidate; Nebraska Gov. Norbert T. Tiemann, who lost his bid to be a delegate in the state's May primary, and South Dakota Gov. Nils A. Boe. Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller (Ark.) will be the only governor to represent his- state on the platform committee. But Gov. John H. Chafee (R.I.). chairman of the Republican Governors Assn., previously was namea denutv chairman f the Dlatform committee. Govs. Walter J. Hickel (Alaska) and Louie B. Nunn (Ky.) were named vice chairmen. Other dignitaries who will be Hpief?ates to the convention include New York City Mayor John V.

Judge Is 'Cool1 Despite the Heat MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - The "cooler" was cooler than the courtroom and so the judge took her court to jail. At 9:30 a.m. the temperature in Nassau County District Court Judge Beatrice Burstein's court room was 86 degrees ana cumD-ing. A woman prisoner fainted and Judge Burstein made her decision. She announced that she was moving her arraign ment court in the admmistra tion building to an air-condi tioned women's detention cell in the building's iail area. But although the judge kept her cool all day, those waiting to be arraigned had to suffer in the heat. The 10-foot by 10-foot cell that served as the courtroom was just big enough for desks for the judge, the court clerk, the Legal Aid representa tive, a chair tor the court ste nographer, the American flag and the prisoner being ar raigned at the moment. credentials- committee; and former Gov. William W. Scran-ton (Pa.), a member of the rules committee. Louisiana Delegation The Louisiana Republican State Convention June 2 2 selected a 26-member delegation after Negroes charged that they were Deing "systematically" excluded from the delegation. The delegation is technically uncommitted and will be headed by David Treen, a 1968 congressional candidate and an unsuccessful congressional candidate in 1962 and 1964. Other members of the delegation include State Chairman Charles deGravelles and National Committeeman Tom Stagg. Nineteen delegates are known to favor Nixon, while six have indicated thev Drefer Reagan and one said he could support either Nixon or Reagan. Although two Negroes serve as alternate delegates, Jesse W. Cook, leader of concerned Negro Republicans of Louisiana, is expected to file a challenge to the delegation. Cook, June 14 sent Nixon a telegram urging that Nixon use his influence to guarantee an integrated delegation. Cook, and other Negroes voiced dismay at reports that Nixon's Southern regional manager, former U.S. Rep. Howard H. Callaway (R-Ga. 1965-67), had suggested that former Gov. George C. Wallace (D-Ala.) join the Republican party. In his telegram, Cook said that Callaway was "a long-time segregationist and his prominence in your (Nixon's) campaign is an affront to every Negro in the United States." A direct confrontation was avoided at the state convention after Callaway decided not to make a scheduled appearance. At the convention, Cook nominated two Negroes who reportedly favored the nomination of Rockefeller for delegate positions. Both men were defeated.. Cook than charged that the two men lost because the top leadership had given them no support. DeGravelles denied that Negroes were excluded from the delegate selection process in the state, adding that the dispute was a contest between Nixon and Rockefeller supporters rather than between whites and Negroes. Louisiana Republicans with committee assignments at the convention: R. W. Farrar Jr. and Mrs. Trula Russek, credentials; Tom Stagg and Mrs. Harriet Belchic, resolutions; Robert Angers and Mrs. Jean Boese, rules and order of business; Allison Kolb and Mrs. Henry H e i t m a n , permanent organization.
