Rocky to Bow Out By BRUCE BIOSSAT, NEA Washington Correspondent The Headless Horseman WASHINGTON (NEA) V Without question, Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York will file the flecessary affidavit disclaiming; that ha is a candidate, thus effectively with- Rawing his name if it is entered in the May 28 Oregon presidential primary. ;.;. Sources close to the governor make this point, unequivocally. ;ij There lias been a spate.of rumor that he might change his mind about this one primary if Gov. George Rom- •ney of Michigan did badly in the-March IS opener in New Hampshire—since Oregon is the only primary state with filing anrl withdrawal deadlines (March 19 and 22) which come afterward. V The time for filing a formal-disclaimer is still weeks and weeks off, so utterly no significance can be attached to the fact that Rockefeller wrote the Oregon secretary of state a letter declaring his noncandidacy but Stopping short of affidavit. !.". The governor's comment was a merely, gratuous response to a preliminary written indication from the Oregon official that he has found some "national advocacy" of Rockefeller— a necessary prelude to official entry of his name in the state's "all-candidate primary. ". The Oregon event has particular significance as probably the .last this Spring where front-runner Richard Nixon is likely to have any kind of measurable competition. It is seen as the final chance for a moderate rival to have a go at Nixon if, by then, he swept through the earlier primaries. "' It is also read hi some quarters as one positive opportunity Rockefeller could embrace before August convention time, if he should decide to shed his present reluctance and leap into battle. Without Rockefeller, the Oregon primary might very well be limited to three principal names — Nixon, Gov. Ronald Reagan of California and Rom- iiey. ..." Since the Michigan governor seems determined to stay the course at least ' through the April 2 Wisconsin primary, he could not at that stage pull cut of Oregon even If he had no victories to show. But he might abandon campaigning. That would reduce the Oregon test to a Nixon-Reagan affair. Reagan will leave his name in there, as he will in the other all-candidate primaries in Wisconsin and Nebraska. Yet only in the case of Oregon has he not so far indicated that he would not do any on- scene campaigning. Nixon sympathizers argue that even if Reagan docs visit Oregon at campaign time, he may get no more than 25 per cent of the GOP primary vote. Should he stay away, they say, he would be lucky to get 15 per cent. Some recent professional political visitors to Oregon assert, however, that Reagan appears to have good growing support there. Early organi- ational undertakings for him are likely. But if Romney's presence in the lists should prove purely nominal and Rockefeller, who won the Oregon race in 1964 and has a strong residue of support, should sign the disclaimer, then Nixon could find Republican moderates flowing his way. Moves to speed that moderate flow have already been made. Nixon contacts are warm with Sen. Mark Hatfield and Gov. Tom McCall. The advantage -to Reagan of Oregon's nearness to California could be overstated. Oregon basically is a moderate state. Barry Goldwater in 1964 ran only third there and got just. 18 per cent of the vote. Though he had given up campaigning in the final five weeks, the fact is his vote performance conformed closely to showings by other conservative choices in prior years. At this early moment, it has to be said that Oregon does not look like the place where either Rockefeller or Reagan is going to slow down what, by late May, could be a very fast-moving Nixon candidacy. I Sbow Beat by Dick Kleiner '14W& Of OtU Research Breakthrough ',. We read the other day that tiny radios have been developed to aid in eye research. •' So far the research has been done with rabbits. One radio the size of the head of a pin was inserted in a rabbit's eye to transmit the change in pressure within the eye. It was found that when the rabbit sees a girl rabbit, his eye-ball pressure goes up 150 per cent. Without modern research, we would never have known. — Montgomery (Ala.)

On the surface, they've blindly thrown men into certain defeat. Some observers have taken these Viet Cong actions to mean they are either desperate or cracking up. This reporter's Vietnamese contacts, however, suggest that the Viet Cong in these attacks were neither desperate nor foolhardy. These Vietnamese think the Communists knew in advance what losses they would take and what the results of these battles would be—military defeat for themselves and military victory for the U.S. forces. * * * By this theory, the Viet Cong also anticipated—and possibly correctly—that these military defeats could lead to quite important political victories. If the Mao Tse-tung theory of .warfare prevails in South Vietnam, then the V.C. fight battles only to make political gains. From what this reporter's contacts could gather, the Viet Cong were bothered by U.S. and South Vietnamese government statements that the war was: turning in our favor. These reports apparently were getting to the villagers in V.C. controlled areas and in the contested regions where the government is in control sometimes and the Communists on other occasions. To the discomfort of the Communists, these statements of allied progress seemingly were having some effect on the rural citizenry in some areas. Co-operation with thei Communists was decreasing. + + * To knock down these reports of U.S.-Saigon gains, the Viet Cong stepped up their attacks. They deliberately walked into several battles. 'What then was the political result of these battles? Though announcing victory, the U.S. Army said our losses were considerable. U.S. newspapers announced that the V.C. were on the offensive. When U. S. forces moved on, Communists moved back in. - The rural Vietnamese -didn't know how many Viet Cong were killed in the battles or who won. (These -pragmatic country men arid women tend not to believe any announced claims by either side.) • But many rural Vietnamese did note that the U.S. admitted the Viet Cong were on the offensive and that the U.S. troops had taken considerable casualties. The rural Vietnamese also noted that after the battle was over and the smoke had cleared away, the U.S. and Vietnamese government troops usually went away and the Viet Cong underground was in possession of most of the territory in the area where the 'battles had- been fought. If, as a result, more villagers believe the Viet Cong are strong and growing stronger and that they have the power to take on the American forces and inflict heavy casualties, this will help the V.C. to strengthen thir .local political and economic structure. To (he Viet Corig, this is a political victory well worth the heavy battle losses. 75 Y ears ? Ago '"—Jri iijfyt heville The engagament of,Miss Kathleen Elizabeth.
