Government Of Pasadena City Goldwater Gets GOP Approval In Mississippi JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -Mississippi Republicans—as expected—have given Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona the stale's 13 convention votes for the GOP presidential nomination. The state Republican Party Convention, held her Saturday, endorsed Goldur-ler and instructed the national convention delegates to vote as a unit for the Arizona senator "until released by him personally." "Goldwater exemplifies to a high degree the qualities so necessary for president," said a resolution, adopted unanimously by the more than 500 delegates representing 71 of the state's 82 counties. The state's budding Republican Party also called on all GOP senators to "refrain from voting for the cloture move to stop debate and. . .(to) further vote against the entire civil rights bill." Another resolution approved called for President Johnson to "direct the Secretary of State to alter the policy of containment and no win in favor of a policy that will bring victory and the ericl of the war in Viet Nam." Rubel Phillips, who ran as the GOP candidate for governor last year, said the party platform plank on prohibition was too weak as written. "We ought to have guts enough to say what we stand for," said Phillips, who polled •50 per cent of the vote in his race against Gov. Paul Johnson. Mississippi is the only state with prohibition. HOUSTON (AP) - A court of inquiry into the operations of the Pasadena city government was to resume today for a third session of testimony. The court of inquiry, expected to last several weeks, was called after the Harris County grand jury spent two months investigating governmental activities in the populous industrial suburb. Points brought out in questioning of Pasadena officials and former city officials by assistant Dist. At'tys. Frank Puck- ctt and Allen Stilley include: —For nine years the financial firm of Merrill Lynch, Pierce. Fenncr & Smith has paid back half of its fee for handling city bond funds to various Pasadena attorneys. The payments totaled more than $132.000. -The firm does not know what services were rendered for the payments it mndc and does not know who the local attorneys arc who received the money. Clyde Gary, former Pasadena mayor, and James L. Hram- mcr, current mayor, testified they knew nothing of such payments. Comer Wliitaker, another former mayor, said a one per cent fee. or about $00,000, was paid to N. A. Smith, a Pasadena attorney, during his two terms as mayor, from 1950-1963. Whitaker testified he was fairly certain all commissioners and mayors back to 1955 know about the paybacks to local attorneys. He said there was nothing unusual or underhanded about, them and the local attorneys earned the fees for giving legal advice. ft«Nl InNH U4.
