Sheriff's' Department officials rushed Sherrill and his wife, Ruth, 29, to the Howard County Community Hospital for emergency treatment. Hospital officials refused to release information on the victim's condition at his request for no publicity. The vehicle was a total loss. Early morning fog caused another one-car accident at 4:50 a. m. today. Marjorie Epps, 44, 213 Washintgon St., lost control of her vehicle when she failed to negotiate a curve on State Road 28 one-half mile west of Titpon.

Middle of Road Advocated By GOP Leader By RAYMOND LAHR United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The chairman of the- Republican Governors Conference believes that the GOP must return to "the middle of the road of the Eisenhower years" to regain political power. Gov. Roberrt E. Smylie of Idaho, who heads the group of 17 GOP governors, .also said Sunday that Dean Burch should be replaced as chairman of the Republican .National Committee. He said -he thought Burch's future "would be an unavoidable subject for discussion" at a meeting of Republican governors scheduled for early next month. But, he said he did not know "whether any formal action will occur." Smylie, who appeared with Rep. Gerald R. Ford, R-Mich., on the program, was one of several Republicans who called for a "new look" in their party in interviews over the weekend, j Proposes Convention Atty. Gen. Edward W. Brooke of Massachusetts said that a Republican national convention, with delegates from all over the country, should be held next summer to examine the party's future. Rep. John Lindsay, R-N.Y., who was interviewed with Broke, predicted that the replacement of Burch "by someone else of moderate stripe" would come about. But he said it might not happen immediately and cool heads should prevail in the meantime. " Rep. John B. Anderson, R-I1L, a former supporter of Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, said the defeated presidential nominee's best contribution to the GOP would be to "retire gracefully." Rep. Edward J. Derwinski, R-I1L, disagreed. He said "deliberate and major defections" within the Republican party were an important factor 'in Goldwater's defeat. : Not To Blame Ford, 'chairman of the House Republican Conference, said he did not think all the blame for the GOP defeat should be placed on Burch or Goldwater. He also said winning candidates like Gov. George Romney of Michigan should not be ruled out of future party leadership because they did not actively back Goldwater. Ford said the governors' conference and a Jan. 10 meeting of the Republican National Committee would have to decide the party's future. One urgent task, he said, was to "melt conflicting views" and organize solid GOP opposition for coming elections.

G r o v e r Jones goes on trial today in a fatal hit and run case in which Reagan was co-chairman for j the son of the victim spent al- the Goldwater-Miller GOP presidential campaign in California and made nationwide television speeches on behalf of the party. After election day, Republican Frank Jordan, California's secretary of state, suggested thjat Reagan -could be a.^ood candidate for governor! ( "I've never had any political aspiration as a candidate," Reagan told United Press International Sunday night. "But I'll continue to work on behalf of the philosophy of government I believe in and for those 26 million who subscribe in constitu-. tional government." . Asked i f he could spurn a strong Republican request to run for office, however, Reagan replied, "I. hope I could turn it down." • v The election victory of former actor George Murphy over Democratic Sen. Pierre Salinger in the U.S. Senate race in California didn't erase any "barriers" for actors to get into politics, Reagan said. "There was never any question about that," noted Reagan, currently connected with the "Death -Valley Days" television series. "We had an actress, Helen Gahagan Douglas, on the other side." Mrs. Douglas was elected to the U. S. Senate, but later lost to Richard M. Nixon. Reagan, who said he could be described properly as a conservative in the present mean­ ing'of the word, was a "lifelong Democrat" until he reregistered as a Republican in 1962. But he started working for the GOP in I960 on behalf of Nixon in his presidential campaign. ' HIGH AND LOW. . NEW YORK (UPI) — The lowest temperature reported this morning to' the U.S. Weather Bureau, excluding 'Alaska and Hawaii, was 16 at : Williston, N.D.. The highest reported Sunday . was 87 at McAUen, Tex. : . . r - most 20 years compiling evidence. ' Jones, 55, is charged by Tennessee authorities with the second degree murder of Newt Lee, 64, Moss, Tenn., a lumberman who was struck and killed as he walked across a highway • on a rainy New Year's Eve night in 1944. A grand jury returned the indictment after considering evidence compiled over the two decades by Lee's son, Welby, who said he had traveled about 100,000 miles in an effort to bring the driver who struck his father to justice. The son, now 51, had only a bumper guard and witnesses' descriptions of two men said to have been in the car. The clues sustained a search which ended in 1963 when Lee turned over a 152-page book of .notes and al- A long extradition fight leged evidence to authorities, through Indiana courts to the Indiana Supreme Court followed Jones' arrest before the handyman was ordered to Tennessee by Indiana Gov. Matthew E. Welsh in late 1963. The trial was delayed, however, when it was learned that the foreman of the grand jury was a member of Lee's family, and a new indictment was sought continuing the case until the present term of court. Lee said he began his one- man search the night his father was killed. He said Jones' name first entered his investigation in 1945 and again in 1962 when, he received a "tip" that Jones was allegedly visiting relatives in the area at the time of the accident; Lee said he "hit lots of dead ends but never thought of giving up." He said he turned his information ; over to the grand jury after the bumper guard was allegedly traced to Jones. Jones' defense attorneys said they will attack the legality of the indictment and seek relief because of the statute of limit'a. tions. . The two men met here last December when Jones arrived to post $2,500 bond. "How are you, Grover?" asked Lee. "Hi," said Jones.- Lee -added later that "never at any time during this investigation have I had hatred in my heart for him. I only want to see justice done."
