York. Goldberg "waived" the committee designation for governor to enter the June 23 primary on an equal with other candidates. Out from Harlem 'LIBERTY, N. Y. (AP State Sen. Basil A. Paterson, a Negro, was born and reared in B Harlem, lives there 'with his wife and two sons and practices law from an office on 125th * · · street, one of Harlem's main thoroughfares. Now the suave, 43-year-old legislator is reaching out from his Harlem constituency for the state's : . second highest office, lieutenant governor.. · To do that, he said "recently, he must show whites "that I don't have horns." For that reason, he long has has said he would welcome a primary battle as 'a chance to campaign on his own, and not paried to a candidate for governor as he would be in the regular November election. - Actually, Paterson said he expected the fact that he was black--or light brown--would invite a primary opponent. He probably did not - expect he would have to give an opponent an assist to ensure .a primary fight. That is what happened in the small hours of Thursday morning. Paterson had been tapped by Arthur J. Goldberg, the party's As 'the balloting progressed, it became apparent that Paterson's chief rival for the State Democratic Committee's designation, Huntington Town Supervisor Jerome Ambro, would not receive enough votes--25 per cent--to qualify for the ballot without gathering petitions. Paterson .sent, word to the meeting floor: that he wanted Ambro to qualify. Enough Paterson votes switched to/give Ambro a ballot slot, a move Ana- bro described later as gracio'iis. "I don't want to be a token losing candidate," Paterson has said. He intends to try to prove that he is a winning candidate on his own. In accepting the party designation Thursday afternoon, he delivered a firm, endorsement of Goldberg, who faces a primary battle, too. Paterson, now in his .third · - . . v term in the senate, has.held no' m m other elected public office. He has been president of- the^.New Ybrk City branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and a chairman of. the Harlem Voter Registration Council.
