MONDAY Scranton Jabs at Barry But Avoids Nixon Bout HARTFORD, Pennsylvania's Scranton, his c£ Republican pres tion just a day Nixon Snows Interest JUNE 15,1964, Lake Charles American conn. (AP) - oy. William W. ndidacy for the dential nomina- old, took a few Still In Nomination CHICAGO (AF)-Richard M. Nixon, declining to state his choice among contenders for the Republican presidential nomination, says he vould accept if delegates selectsd him to break a convention deadlock. The former vice president, however, said Cunday the race is between Sen ter of Arizona a Barry Goldwa- nd Gov. William "Forum," a pn W. Scranton of Pennsylvania and that he doesn't see a "strong third force" that could deadlock the convention. In a - television interview on gram broadcast locally in Chicago by station WBKB, Nixon naid: "In the even vention fails t the present ca •who can unite convention, leaders turned would underta bility of the n would conduc ani campaign.

Barry Goldwater but he refused to be drawn into an exchange with Richard M. Nixon. Making a pitch /or Connecticut's 16 presidential delegates, Scranton appeared before that state's state convention for a 15- minuie speech that was jeered as much as it was cheered. The convention suspended its rules to permit Scranton to take the floor before the conclusion of its business, including selection of delegates. The lean 46-year-old governor strode down an aisle jammed with delegates who flaunted as many Goldwater banners as Scranton standards, Scranton hit at Republicans who _ he said attempt to sweep disturbing developments under a rug and at Goldwater supporters, who, he claimed, are ready "to write off the very states" Republicans need to win. Former Vice President Nixon had said earlier in New York, upon his return from Europe, that Scranton had a fighting chance but that he made himself look like a "puppet" for reversing an earlier decision to run against Goldwater after two telephone conversations with former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. "I am not going to Imbibe (sic) myself in personal comments with Nixon," Scranton told a news conference in a downtown hotel during a 2 hour and 10 minute wait to address the state convention. "I've never been a puppet for anyone," he added. The biggest reaction to Scranton's speech, both cheers and boos, came as he declared: "Because of havoc that has been spread across the national landscape, the Republican party wonders how it will make clear to the American people that it does not oppose Social Security, the United Nations, human rights and a sane nuclear policy." Scranton said the party's "heritage of dynamic conservatism has been twisted into a cruel misunderstanding of how the American economy works." The governor added: "We have now reached the stage on the road to San Francisco where not only candor, but our party's future well-being demands that we frankly put out in the open some of the disturbing elements that have too long been swept under the rug." Scranton also devoted some time to the Democratic admin- istration, saying it could be defeated on a number of issues including the handling of Viet Nam, Cuba, Berlin, De Gaulle, civil rights, education and agriculture problems. At his earlier news conference, Scranton said he didn't know what Nixon had in mind when the former vice president said the governor should repudiate his statements on Viet Nam. "I don't even know what our policy there is," Scranton said. "Every time Defense Secretary (Robert S.) McNamara comes back from Viet Nam the policy seems changed." The party returned to Scranton, Pa., where the governor and his aides planned to set up itineraries and organization for the hectic 30 days before the GOP nominating convention at San Francisco. "I'm a good, hard, fast runner," said Scranton upon his arrival here. Shreveporter Receives Rare Honor From AF NEW ORLEANS (AP)-Nicholas W. deBeradinis, director of public relations for The Shreveport Times, Saturday was made a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force Reserve. Col. Maurice F. Casey, deputy director of Air Force information, administered the oath during ceremonies at the convention of the Louisiana wing of the Air Force Association. DeBeradinis was the third to receive such a commission in the Air Force history. He was a sergeant in World War II and for the last five years has done volunteer work for the Air Force as a civilian. The citation recommending the commission gave special recognition to liis contributions to American air power through aerospace education projects | for his demonstration of leadership in air power and patriotism.

Ross Barnett Saturday night praised Louisiana Gov. John McKeithen as a man "doing an excellent job." Barnett made the remarks in an address prepared for delivery to the Greater New Orleans Negligence and Compensation Lawyers Association. He said Louisiana took a "step in the right direction—in securing an administrative official who studies your judicial system, the various courts, dockets, procedural rules, and makes recommendations to the legislature." "My information is that your adminstrative officer is doing an excellent job." Barnett suggested that "states should see to it that someone is vested with the power to advise legislative bodies how and in what manner there can be a better administration of justice." "In most states there is no official who has kept statistics, who is charged with the duty or vested with the power of better administration of the courts." The term "bridegroom" comes from Angol-Saxon England. It was the custome for the husband to wait on his bride at the wedding feast and he was called the groom, or servitor.

S. planes so far have been made from the carrier Kitty Hawk, which has been steaming off the Viet Nam coast in the South China Sea— to scout out build-up of Pathet Lao forces by Vietminh units. However, the U. S. Air Force has several types of jet reconnaissance aircraft based on South Vietnamese airfields which also are used for photo reconnaissance. The assumption in Washington is that the Red Chinese air force will refrain from flying into Laos to intercept U. S. flights. Some Pentagon sources also point to the notion that the Red Chinese air force for several years has been confronted with problems in maintaining their Russian-built jets. Soviet aid stopped some time ago—and with it spare parts, replacement aircraft and fuel. But the Chinese Communist air force still has a fleet of sev- Economic Workshop Set in B. R.
