But as marchers from all 48 city Philadelphia where shenani- states and beyond paraded and cut capers with fun-making units, they bore in mind a message from Vice President Richard M. Nixon that the free world cannot stop communism unless the people have the "will to resist." Indochina is visible proof of this, the vice president told a banquet of top VFW leaders and other dignitaries last night. , "We saw this principle in reverse in Guatemala where the Communist army was 10 times as strong as the army of liberation," Nixon said. "Ninety per cent of the people, however, were against the Communist government and it was only a matter of hours after the revolt against the government began before the Communist leaders had to run for their lives." ' j Nixon flew here from Washington to receive the VFW's Bernard M. B a r u c h Distinguished Service Award. The award is made for the "most outstanding contribution to the American way of life, promotion of unity and world peace." Earlier, the convention approvec amid cheering a strongly-worded "proclamation of policy" charging the federal government with "cynical disregard" for veterans and their dependents "while dealing generously with foreign nations, including former enemies." The attack: cited the record of the past 14 years, during which time,.it said, 86 billion dollars had gone for foreign aid, while expenditures for veterans have totaled only 3« billions over 175 years. Nixon, pressed by newsmen, said he could not comment on the action since he had not had time to read the tex-t.

GOP Race Tops Primary Voting In Michigan DETROIT UP) — Selection of a Republican opponent to face Democratic Gov. G. Mennen Williams next November was the key race in today's primary election in Michigan. Not more than a million of the state's 3,800,000 voters were expected to go to the polls. There' were four Republican candidates them for governor. Three of Secretary of State Owen J. Cleary, State Treasurer D. Hale Brake and Donald S. Leonard, former state and Detroit police commissioner — were conceded about equal chances. The other. Dr. Eugene C. Keyes, Detroit doctor- lawyer-dentist, was given little chance. Williams is unopposed for the Democratic non ination. He seeks an unprecedented fourth term. The recent death of former Sen. Blair Moody 'has left Patrick V. McNamara, former Detroit city councilman, unopposed for the Democratic nomination for TJ. S. enator. Sen. Homer Ferguson (R-Mich) s unopposed in his bid for a third erm. Candidates from both parties also will be nominated for the CT. S. House oi Representatives, as l as county and some local of- ices. Small Vole Seen In West Virginia Primary Today Little Interest Evinced in Senate/ House Contests CHARLESTON, W.Va. Lfh- West Virginians were expected to straggle to the polls today to nominate a slate of U.S. Senate and congressional candidates on the heel' of a primary election campaigr lacking in statewide voter interest. At best, no more than 300,000- about 30 per cent of the eligbl' voters—were expected to turn out Sen. M. M. Neely was challenged for renomination by three other Democrats. But the 79-year-olr' Bible-quoting veteran of nearly ,34 j years in Congress hardly bothered to campaign. Sure Winner He was regarded a sure winner when polls opened at 6:30 a.m. His protege in a congressional race, Rep. Robert Mollohan of Fairmont, faced a sterner test in 77-year-old Robert L. Ramsey. Ramsey served six terms in the House before being ousted by Mollohan in 1952. But Ramsey also held the favorite's roll in a contest in which both candidates ran on name only without lighting fireworks. Representatives Cleveland M. Bailey, Robert C. Byrd and Mrs. Elizabeth Kee,al 1 Democrats, also faced primary opposition. But none appeared in danger. Rep. Will E. Neal, 78-year-old Huntington physician, had no op- j position. Neal is the state's lone ' Republican congressman. Rep. j Harley 0. Staggers, a House veter- i an and a Democrat, also was without opposition. Interest was generally confined to State Senate rapes in districts where Gov. William C. Mariana was reported gunning for senators he considered unfriendly to his administration.
