Gfiidwater telegraphed the governor: ... . ^"Congratulations on your cou- rigebus and intelligent decision, Ynur position willVcontribute immeasurably to 'a 1968 victory for trie Republican party and even njore importantly for this great ration. Barry." 'Rockefeller immediately picked up the telephone and called Goldwater in Arizona. Slote said their conversation vjas "warm and personal. They have renewed their friendship." (And there were these comments: .. i^ixon—"I am not home yet. I don't take anything for granted. The governor, 1 think, took a responsible .position. After all, he is a leading contender.

Thruslon B. Morton, R- Ky-,-, who, rumor said, would be Rockefeller's campaign manag- ere-"I think Gov. Rockefeller could have given to my party the kind of leadership it needed. His chances of getting the nomi- na'tion are rather dim." Morton said he thinks it is possible but not probable that Rockefeller tcrs Tuesday in Annapolis, laid ;ie would h&ve to re-examln* ils position. He said he still believed Rockefeller would be the b«it GOP candidate but "I question th« ability of the volunteer groups to hold the enthusiasm that's pouring out all over the country In the face of his announcement today." If Rockefeller had not removed his name from the Oregon ballot he would have clashed there with Nixon. A Rockefeller aide said, "The governor would have won easily in Oregon. But what would one primary prove?" Moreover, he said, the Oregon election would "not be the best forum" for Rockefeller to delineate his ideas on foreign and domestic policy. The source said Rockefeller has been working for several months "preparing material for use in shaping the Republican platform." The governor is chairman «( the Republican Governors Committee. In May, Rockefeller plans to visit five cities, hold hearing in each, and study their problems. In the news conference, he said: "I shall, in the months ahead, make known-in quiet party councils and in occasional pub- lie forums—my own positions orf major national and international issues. This must include, of course, the ordeal of Vietnam and the quest for peace." He was asked if he could state his views on Vietnam now and he replied: 'Sure.

But of possibly more significance was a 100-round barrage poured into two U.S. artillery strohgpoints that support Khe Sanh from the east, the Rock Pile and Camp Carroll. AP correspondent Edwin Q White reported from Da Nang that the shelling was the heaviest at Camp Carroll in some time and could be the beginning of a harassment campaign against the two bases. U.S. commanders believe thai before the North Vietnamese can make a serious attempt to overrun Khe Sanh, they must silence the big 175mm howitzers which back up Khe Sanh from the two posts to the east. . . * * + A new offensive thrust by the U.S. 9th infantry division to secure the main food line from the Mekong Delta to Saigon was announced by the U.S. Command the sixth allied operation disclosed in the last two days.
