From Page 1 GOP Platform Draft Against Busing for Racial Balance party rules that would in 1976 add to the advantage'held by small conservative states in convention representation. Feelers for a compromise were r e p o r t e d being encouraged by the White House and high party officials. At the same time a group oi black delegates said they intend to press for stronger rules to open the party to more blacks women and youths. While the Republicans gath- than the free enterprise tern." ered here, the Democratic candidates for president and vice president enjoyed a campaigning lull. Thrusting once more at Democratic presidential n o m i n e e George McGovern's tax proposals, the platform writers said: "We reject the deceitful tax 'reform' cynically represented as one that would soak the rich, but in fact one that would sharply raise the taxes of millions of families in middle-income brackets." The second portion of the platform, put in final shape Saturday, followed a defense-foreign affairs statement that unequivocally backed President Nixon's terms for ending the Indochina War, called for a strong defense establishment, and rejected amnesty for draft evaders. The platform writers, turning to the domestic side, repeatedly criticized what they called a radical minority of Democrats. Affirmatively, they pledged property tax relief through revenue sharing and other, unspecified, measures; "further tax reform to ensure that the tax burden is fairly shared;" simplification of the tax code and economy in government to keep taxes down. "We pledge to spread the tax burden equitably, to spend the federal revenues prudently, to guard against waste in spending, to eliminate unnecessary The final draft of the party statement is expected to win approval from the full convention on Tuesday. The women's rights plank apparently was aimed at calming discontent among some female d e l e g a t e s . The document steered clear, however, of the even more controversial issue of abortion. The platform writers kept the draft focused on denouncing what was termed "the convulsive leftward lurch of the national Democratic party." The committee met Into the early hours Saturday, deciding issues in general form. Then it put its writers to work producing the language to be made public later. Committee sources said that, )esides settling women's issues, the panel had turned down pro- wsals that would have offended abor, such as a strengthening of restrictions on closed and sys- nouncement concerning peace in Vietnam during the convention. He told reporters that he had no inside information but he saw such a development as "a possibility." Although Democrat George McGovern plans to break precedent by campaigning actively during the attention-getting Republican convention, he relaxed in Washington during the weekend. McGovern complained in an interview that the White House "has about 15 potshots at me' himself stands *loof. smoke him out the Democratic "But we'I eventually," candidate added. 1** controversy over vice- presidential candidate Sargent Shriver's charge that Nixon a peace opportunity in L969 was kept alive by a new White House report. union shops. The countdown toward the convention, which opens Monday and is sure to renominate President Nixon on Tuesday in an extravaganza of harmony and praise, found Republicans in buoyant mood. The one existing chance of a unity-shattering floor dispute was the subject of compromise feelers. The White House is reported to have told some of Its programs, that each and to dollar. make sure buys a dollar's worth of value," the platform said. It promised to end wage and price controls "once the economic distortions spawned in the late 1960s are repaired. . . at the earliest possible moment." With another swipe at the Democrats, the platform reaffirmed "support for the basic principles of capitalism which underlie system. the private enterprise "At a time when a small but dominant faction of the opposition party is pressing for radical economic schemes which so often have failed. the draft continued, "We hold that nothing has done more to help the American people achieve their unmatched standard of living operatives to ease up in their Johnson administration, insistence on shaping the 1976 GOP convention into a more conservative instrument. THE IDEA behind the compromise possibility would be to restore some strength lost by urban, Northern states in recent rules changes by giving them more weight in awarding bonus delegates. There have been threats of a floor fight during the convention by liberals and big state delegates who say they fear the 1976 convention is being rigged by giving disproportionate weight to small Southern states. The GOP House leader, Rep. Gerald R. Ford of Michigan, told a news conference he sees a possibility his party will take over Congress if the President runs as well as expected. The "coattail effect," Ford said, could overcome odds against picking up the approximately 40 states needed. And Ford, although he cautioned that speculative it was a personal strictly opinion, said there was a chance President Nixon would make an an- people taking 1 while Nixon THE 13-PAGE document sued Friday by communications director Herbert G.
