Miom i (Continued from Page 1) ng iis inquiry to the Case mater, was ready to try again to pin down whether Neff offered to contribute Keck funds to the re-election campaign of Sen. Hickenloop er (R-Iuwa). The committee last week heard conflicting testimony on this point. Asked About Report In his TV appearance, Goldwa- :er was asked about a report that had received a contribution from the Kecks. "That is c o r r e c t," Goldwa- ;er said. He added: "If Mr. Keck likes the way I vote he has a perfect right to give money to me." Goldwater said that neither Keck nor any of some 200 other to his campaign ha; a special favor of contributors ever asked lim. It was not clear whether Goldwater or his questioner were talking about Howard Keck, though the questioner referred to him as 'Mr. Keck, who seems to be, shal we say, the source of this trouble at the start." The questioning, however, grew out of an earlier Drew Pearson broadcast in which Pearson reported, an aide,said, that Goldwa ;er had received a contribution from Matthew Keck of the Super tor Oil family. The committee looking into the Case matter has taken testimony from Robert K. ' Goodwin, Iowa Republican national committeeman, that Neff made two offers, of $2,500 and $1,000, to Hickenlooper's campaign. Neff denied making either offer and said he talked with Goodwin only once, in Des Moincs. In an effort to resolve the conflict, the committee called Goodwin's wife to tell what she knows of a telephone conversation her husband had last Feb. 19 with Ivan D. Evans of Broken Bow, Neb., .Neff's lawyer. Kvans and his son, John H. Evans, have given sworn testimony contradicting Goodwin's account of the conversation. Mrs. Goodwin reportedly listened to .the conversation on an extension line in her home. ,ex's -activities in Iowa came under investigation as part of the committee's efforts . to determine whether an improper attempt had oeen made to influence the vote of Sen. Case. Campbell Names New Manager Lawrence W. Oliver has been appointed manager of the Campbell Sixty-Six terminal in Blytheville, president Frank G. Campbell announced today from Springfield, Mo.
