Nixon is now running de cisively as the favorite for the presidential nomination among republicans but again has slipped behind President Johnso among the voters of all parties, the Harris poll said Mori- day. The latest survey by Louis Harris, copyrighted by the Washington Post, found Johnson ahead of Nixon 47 per cent to 44 per cent. This is a decided shift from early November when Nixon led Johnson for the first time by 48 to 41 per cent. "Despite his now clear-cut ability to run well ahead of other contenders within his own party," Harris said, "Nixon continues to suffer from a nagging doubt among a majority of all voters that "he has lost too many elections'." "He appears to be in the anomalous position of being able to win Republican primar- ies, but having difficulty sustaining an advantage among the electorate at large." The poll, pairing Nixon off against the other potential leading GOP contenders found him ahead among Republican voters by these margins: over Gov. Ronald Reagan of California (5 per cent to 22 per cent; over Gov. George Romney of Michigan, 63 per cent to 24 per cent; over Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York, 52 p?r cent to 33 ppr cent. The remaining percentages among those polled were undecided in all three pairings. In the Nixon-Johnson standing, Harris said, "the former vice president has not slipped back to his September showing when he trailed the president by 49 per cent to 42 per cent. But seems that whenever Mr. Johnson shows even a slight sign comeback in popularity, Nixon falls behind."

Travel Penalties Urged In Entering 'Restricted Areas' WASHINGTON (AP) -- The State Department is proposing to Congress today enactment of criminal penalties for travel by U.S. citizens to "restricted areas" of the world--such as Cuba and North Vietnam a spokesman announced. Press officer Robert J. McCloskey said the action was being taken by Undersecretary Nicholas Katzcnbach, who is Israel Prime Minister Will Talk With President SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (AP) The Texas White House announced today that Prime Minister Levi Ashkol of Israel will have a private visit with President Johnson in Washington early In February. No date for the meeting has Toy Rocket On Wire; Boy Electrocuted WARNER ROBBINS, Ga.-- (UPD-- A 14-year-old boy was electrocuted and two others injured Sunday when they tried to retrieve a toy rocket from a high tension power line at Warner Robins Air Force Base. Authorities identified the dead youth as Ralph Southerd, a dependent of Sr. M-Sgt. O.G. Bliesmer. The victim's brother, 13-year- old Nickie, was admitted to the base hospital with burns on the arms and legs. A third youth, Eddie McGUl, 8, was treated for minor injuries and released. been fixed. Eshkol, who made an official visit to the United States in 1964, was understood o be returning primarily for an 'srael bond drive. Johnson, spending a few days at his Hill Country ranch near 'ohnson City, some 75 miles north of here, relayed word to newsmen here that he will noui- nate Max N. Edwards to be assistant secretary of the interior for water pollution control and desalinization. Edwards, 46, would succeed Trank C. DiLuzio, who has resigned to join a construction firm m Las Vegas. A Democrat who formerly was an attorney in Hobbs, N.M., Edwards has been legislative counsel for the Interior Department. Johnson also announced he will nominate John *H:MoJhnson, editor and publisher of Johnson Publications, Chicago, to succeed the late Carl Murphy on 'he seven-man Post Office Department Advisory Board. acting secretary in the absence of Secretary Dean Rusk. The disclosure coincided with the imminent return to the United States of Stokely Carmichael, Black Power advocate and bitter critic of U.S. policy in Vietnam. Meanwhile in the Senate two members--Sens. Herman E. Talmadge, D-Ga., and Frank E. Moss, D-Utah--called for prosecution of Carmichael under other laws. Carmichael traveled to Cuba months ago without official permission and subsequently went to North Vietnam as well as a number of other countries. McCloskey has said in the past that the State Department iiad ordered Carmichael's passport revoked. Such revocation when a U.S. citizen is abroad normally means the passport is stamped as good only for travel back to the United States. At a news conference today McCloskey recalled that the State Department had tried "to serve notice of revocation of his passport and had been rebuffed." Under questioning about what action might now be taken, McCloskey said "the acting secretary will be sending a new draft bill to the Congress today." "The bill would attach criminal penalties for travel to restricted areas," he said. He would not say whether an effort would be made to have the proposed penalties imposed retroactively. Duke Activists Not 'Kooks' DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Dr. James L. Price, a Duke University dean, says student activists at Duke come from highly educated upper middle class families and are among the most academically talented students. Price, speaking at a meeting of Duke's alumni leaders, the University National Council, said it would be a mistake to dismiss the activists as alienated hippies or a handful of lawless, undisciplined "kooks." The dean termed the activists presence at Duke "an embarrassment of riches," and recom mended giving students the op portunity to participate in uni versity policymaking and plan rang. NEED HELP?
