State Republican Convention Ends Dinner Concludes Four Day Long Helena Meeting ■y Ttiiin E. MMMy Montana Republicans rang down the curtain on what they described OS "the biggest and the best" state conven tion in the parry's history Saturday night with a banquet ot Helena's Civic Center at which National Chairman William E. Miller of New York was the featured speaker. Earlier in the day, the fourth in a row devoted to GOP sessions in Helena, the convention completed its formal business by re-electing Stote Chairman Mel Engles of Helena, adopting a 1964 platform incorporating P planks, by approving seven resolutions and by selecting other party officials. Earlier in a week of Republicanism which opened a with women's meeting Wednesday, the party hod with a woman's meeting Wednesday, the party had named its presidential electors, selected the 14 dele gates and 14 alternates who will represent it at the national convention next month and nominated two members of the national committee serve for the coming four years. In addition to Engles— who was nominated by the convention corn- endorsement from Gov. Tim Bab-cock — the GOP choose Mrs. Bertha Weiloff ot Lewistown, a veteran party worker, to be its vice chairman and re-elected S. Clark Pyiet of Helena as treasurer. Mrs. Weiloff was the only official whose nomination was contested. She won over Antionette Fraser Rosell of Billings by 98 to 87 in a secret ballot.

Dan Dykstra of Helena, chairman of that committee. They were unanimously accepted.

Edward M. (Ted) Kennedy, D-Mass., who suffered a broken back in a plane crash Friday night, in "good condition" and eliminated the possi bility of any paralysis. The doctors from Washington's Waller Reed Hospital flew into Northampton un President Johnson's Air Force One jet and made an extensive examination of the 32-year-old brother of the late President John F. Kennedy. Kennedy was hurt in the crash that killed the plane's pilot and Kennedy's administrative aide, Edward Moss, 41, in an apple orchard near Southampton, Mass. j Others Injured Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., and his wife also were injured in the crash but both were termed in good condition with lesser injuries. Dr. Charles W.

"We have put up the best slate of candidates ever offered by any party at any time and we must the national ticket," he said. "We've got to have the money, the organization and the battle for every office." Brenner's remarks were roundly cheered, as was a motion by Rep. James F. Battin that the convention unanimously endorse a move to have Congress enact hospitals, increased Social Security benefits, and an expanded housing program.

Lists Points Johnson listed these points as the goals of the "great society" he envisions: —Elimination of racial injustice. —Abolition of poverty. —Removal of fear of the future. — And to remain strong "while finding the path to peace." Johnson carried his fund-rais ing, vote-wooing mission into Southern California by calling! for revolutionary advances in education in a speech at Irvine. In Irvine he dedicated a new campus of the University of California and envisoned an urban extension service, operated by universities across the country, which "will do for urban America what the Agricultural Extension Service has done for rural months. The doctors, ordered to Kennedy's bedside by Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, said one of the three vertebrae broken in Kennedy's back— the third lumbar vertebrae in the. "displaced some degrees sideways." No Cord Damage But the injury, the doctors said, apparently had not damaged tbe-ojinai cord and Kennedy had free movement of arms and legs. The doctors said Kennedy was In "good humor" during the afternoon's- examination but had complained of severe abdominal pains earlier. This caused, some concern but they said it;- was established that Kennedy was not bleeding internally. Metz said the broken vertebrae "created an unstable medical situation" causing the firm outlook for a long recovery period. Dr. Paul Russell, a consultant called from Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital, said it would be some time before Kennedy could be removed from Cooley-Dickerson. Hospital. Kennedy received three pints of blood in transfusions and was given glucose intravenously, along with other medication. "If it had not been for the attention the senator received," Metz said, "it could have been quite a different story." He complimented Dr. Thomas Corriden who supervised the early treat-ment. "X-rays showed fractures of the fifth and sixth ribs on the left side, fractures of the second, third and fourth' lumbar vertebrae (the lower back) and fractures of the sfcond, third and fourth transverse processes, which give the spine support." The bulletin also said Kennedy had cuts on both legs and the right hand. The hospital said Bayh, who at 36 is the Senate's next youngest member, suffered a hip contusion and scratches on his arm. Mrs. Bayh cumplained o£ soreness but was not X-rayed. Kennedy was en route lo West Springfield, Mass., to attend the state's Democratic convention (Continued on Page 3) One Injured In Crash West of City One man is hospitalized and another housed in the city jail, following a three car collision in Helena Saturday morning.

Imported beef, the convention charged, has been the largest factor to contribute to the decline fcring Irom the one voted by the House put Rep. Howard W. Smith, D-Va„ chairman of the House Rules Committee and an unyielding tae of the bill, back in temporary control of the situation. But the overwhelming bi-partisan support for the measure and the desire of Republicans to have the House shut down a week before their convention begins in San Francisco July 13 leaves Smith little room for maneuver. Under House procedures the Rules Committee must, approve a resolution calling tor the House to accept the Senate bill if it is to be voted on without amendments. Smith's main weapon, as chairman, is to delay scheduling a committee meeting to act on the resolution. Immediate action must be taken to establish realistic meat import quotas at a level that will supplement, but not supplant our domestic meat industry." the statement said. The 15-polnt platform went into a number Df bath state and federal isues.
