(AP) The national chairman of the campaign committee of Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge threw his organization's support Friday behind the llth hour bid of Pennsylvania Gov. William W. Scranton for the Republican presidential nomination. Maxwell M. Rabb, Lodge's representative, said in a statement: "We are proud to support Scranton and we know he will be victorious in July and then again in November." Rabb made his announcement after conferring for an hour with former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. He held a news conference on the lawn outside 'Eisenhower's office here. ( Rabb said he did not confer with Lodge on the endorsement but quickly added, "I'm sure he would approve." Rabb, a New Yorker, said he met with Eisenhower to advise the general of his intentions. "Gen. Eisenhower made it very clear that what he favored was a wide open convention," SHOWERS — Scattered showers and widely scattered ihundershowers are forecast today for portions of the west Gulf Coast, the Great Lakes region, the Mississippi and Ohio Valleys and the central and northern Appalachians.
