Scrantpn, wades deeper into the presidential primary battle , ,, ay a3 , Gov - Nelson A. Rockefeller, fortified with support from Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge s son, steps up the pace. Rockefeller planned today to . vlsit . Monterey-where Goldwater had been Tuesday — for a round of appearances before continuing north to Santa Cruz, Santa Clara and San Francisco. Goldwater also planned to move northward, visiting Santa Barbara—where Rockefeller had been Tuesday-to mend any political fences the New Yorker may have toppled. Goldwater revealed the neutrality statements he'd received from the former vice president . a " d . tn e Pennsylvania governor Wednesday. An aide said the Arizona senator had wired the undeclared Republican contenders earlier in the week, saying they had been represented here as aligned with his opponents. Both Nixon and Scranton replied they are not out to stop either Rockefeller or Goldwater in the primary election next Tuesday. was ' c °nversely, no such statement From Lodge. Hi: son, George, appeared at a news conference early Wednesday to urge Lodge supporters to vote for Rockefeller, saying it was the surest way to endorse Lodge in California." Young Lodge said nominatiot of Goldwater by the GOP 'would most likely set the par ty in decline from which i would atrophy." The son of the ambassador to South Viet Nam said he be lieves Rockefeller, more closely than Goldwater, represents the views of "forward-looking" Republicanism enunciated Monday by former President Dwight D Eisenhower. Earlier, Goldwater had declared that he is "the only serious candidate" in the California presidential primary and that he nates to think of what would happen to the dollar if Rockefel ler became president. Goldwater also said he'd have sent the U.S. Marines to turn on the water for Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba when the Castro regime shut it off. ''Had I been the commanding officer of the base, I probably would have taken that action 1 believe in protecting the Amer- can people first, and then worry about what happens afterward," he said. Five-Nation NATO Directorate Seen LONDON (AP)-The man who may be Britain's next foreign minister says the British.labor party, if it wins the national election in the fall, will work for a five-nation directorate to formulate nuclear and political strategy for the North Atlantic Alliance. Patrick Gordon Walker, La- Meet on Fair Pavilion Set By McKeithen BATON ROUGE (AP) - Gov John McKeithen says he'll confer with a special advisory committee to discuss the state's next move toward its controversial World's Fair pavilion. McKeithen's announcement followed receipts of a report Wednesday on the Louisiana pavilion and exhibit from Gus Weill, his executive assistant who returned Tuesday from a four-day inspection trip. The governor has said the state's exhibit is "in a mess." He said Monday it might be best to shelve the project if the situation cannot be straightened out quickly. The Louisiana exhibit, which is to occupy only a small part of the state pavilion, was to have opened last Monday. It didn't because electrical connections had not been installed. Meanwhile, a federal district court in New York granted a bankruptcy plea Wednesday by William Eden, owner of the Billion Air Conditioning Co. and president of the Louisiana Fairs Corp., the state's official representative at the fair. The firm asked Monday for permission to be declared bankrupt, contending it owed nearly a million dollars on work it has done at the pavilion. bor's spokesman on foreign affairs, suggested that West Germany and Italy should join the United States, Britain and prance in drawing up the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's plans for action "up to the moment when—and if—the nuclear trigger has to be pressed." At that point, Gordon Walker I added, the Americans would be • on their own because Labor wants the United States to become the sole custodian of the West's nuclear striking power. Cordon Walker outlined his; i party's planning in an interview ' shortly before flying today to I discuss key world problems with Communist leaders in Warsaw, ; Moscow and Bucharest. Harold Wilson, Labor Party leader, will join hjm Saturday in Moscow, i Gordon Walker skirted the problem French President Charles de Gaulle's lone - wolf policies create for the Labor NATO plan. "If the French decide not to join in the group, a place should be kept for them," he said. NATO's shape and strategy was a major topic when foreign ministers of the 15-nation alliance met in the Hague two weeks ago. It has been a subject of confidential discussion between Wilson and his colleagues and the Johnson administration in Washington. If Labor wins the fall election, Wilson will become prime minister and Gordon Walker very likely will be foreign secretary.
