"I really think Agnew is the best candidate for vice president:" "I'm not an old-line t Republican," said Bright, I believe in looking over the candidates rather than going for be straight ticket. But I believe McGovern (the Democratic nominee for president) represents a threat to our entire free enter- arise system, and that the Nix n-Agnew ticket is best for Amer- gtala Stale Fair IB Lewisburg Thursday.

Moore Jr., who will attend the convention ai the alternate of first district delegate Thomas M.- Bloch of Wheeling, planned to fly to Miami Beach Sunday. While he had said earlier that he expected to have an important role in the convention, his office reported before his departure that he would put in a "low-key appearance" and that he had turned down three requests to lie on the convention program.

Rockefeller said Gov. Moore calls him an outsider "yet he is bringing in truckloads of Republican governors from all over the country, including Ronald Reagan to help him get elected.

Outside the Municipal 'Auditorium where the convention was held, there was an informational picket line where handbills were distributed with the mayor's picture over a caption "union buster." Lewis McManus, permanent chairman of the convention, said "there is not a churchman, a politician, a businessman, a Philadelphia lawyer nor a magician who could draft a platform acceptable to 100 per cent of the delegates." The party, McManus said, "must accept our responsibility as the party of the people." Use Want Ads.
