Ftfe Two - Blythevffle (Ark.) Courier Newi - Saturday, April S, IMS Goldwater Forces Seeking Funds rraffl* Accidents By JACK BELL , AP Political Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Goldwater forces seem to be competing with the Republican National Committee (or those hard-to-get $100 bills the faithful cough up for party dinners. At least that's the Import of a letter Barry Goldwater'i brother Robert has been writing in trying to drum up attendance at the party dinner tn Phoenix April 14 that \t billed as "a tribute to Barry." "The money we will raise from this dinner Is going Into a fund which will be administered by Barry to further the aims of those who believe In our form of government," wrote Robert W. Goldwater. "I know that you did more than your share in the support of the conservative cause during the last election, but that you, too, might want to be part of this tribute." Just how this fund would be administered by the 1964 Reu- blican presidential candidate apparently is a mystery to two far Republicans Robert Goldwater said would be honored guests at the dinner, National Chairman Ray Bliss and former Vice President Richard M. Nixon. Ordinarily the National Committee gets a portion of the receipts when a state party organization puts on a fund-raiaing dinner in the $100-a-plate bracket. In this case Barry Goldwater evidently will decide whether to deposit any of the money in the national party treasury. Bliss has made it clear that so as he can shape party poli- cies they will be directed at rying to reclaim the support of Negroes and other minority groups which went overwhelmingly- against Goldwater in last year's presidential contest. Nixon, at the Republican women's conference here, called for prompt enactment of legislation to end voting discrimination against Negroes in the South. But Goldwater said there is enough legislation on the books | "to demand and obtain the right Dr, Hager Dr. Hager Visits Here Dr. Wesley H.

Zorin May Get Cool Reception MOSCOW (AP) - The Soviet Union's ambassador-designate to France, Valerian A. Zorin, may receive a chilly reception in Paris. He is to take up the new post soon.

Discovery Claimed On Origin. Of Man By ROBERT GOLDENSTEIN AP Science Writer CHICAGO (AP) - One of the world's most renowned anthropologists has uncovered evidence that three entirely different species of prehistoric man lived at the same time and in the same place about a million years ago.
