He has admitted he started late in the campaign and has a long, uphill fight. But, he has said, "I am a good, hard, fast runner." Scranton's aides contend the Pennsylvanian has moro than 105 delegates, but they are banking on strong second ballot support at the San Francisco convention to put Scranton into the top spot. Goldwater presently holds a Gen. Walker Near End of Testimony long lend in delegate strength, with 619 votes, according to the latest Associated Press poll. This is only 36 short of the number needed for nomination. I The Associated Press poll gives Scranton 113, compared to 127 for Gov. Nelson A.

Gen. Edwin A. Walker's $2-million libel suit against The Associated Press resumes today before Dist. Judge Charles Murray. At the weekend recess Friday, the plaintiff's case was near an end. When Walker's attorneys rest, the AP is expected to make motions for dismissal of the complaint. Falling these, defense testimony will be offered to the jury of four women and eight men chosen June 8. Walker, 54, contends he was libeled by AP stories that he led a charge of students against U.S. marshals during the Sept. 30, 1962, desegregation riots at the University of Mississippi. Two men were killed during a crisis over the admission to Ole Miss of Negro James Meredith. During three days on the witness stand last week, Walker testified he came from his home in Dallas merely to see what was going on at the Oxford, Miss, campus. He said he never approached within harassing distance of the marshals, and that he attempted in a speech to dissuade rioting students from violence. In cross-examination, AP counsel sought to show that Walker interjected himself/into an explosive situation, a,lth,pugh aware of federal court orders that Meredith's integration into the university was not to be interfered with. There was testimony also that before he went to Oxford, Walker sought to rally segregationists, with a broadcast plea to "bring your flag, your lent and your skillet, 10,000 strong, from every state in the Union."
