6--The Berkshire Eagle, Tuesday, Nov. 26, Nixon's Lot Seen Improved By Ascendancy of Johnson By JACK BELL WASHINGTON 1 (AP) -- The possibility that R e p u b l i c a n s may give former Vice President Richard M. Nixon a second crack at the presidency appeared to be growing today. The assassination of John F. Kennedy and the ascension of Lyndon B. Johnson to the office has forced a radical reassessment by GOP strategists of the 1964 campaign. Odds Look Better Where once they conceded privately they had only an uphill chance of defeating Kennedy's bid for a second term, they now feel the odds are nearly even they may be able to deny Johnson a first elective term. For a race with Kennedy, many wanted to gamble on the theory that a conservative like Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., could defeat a Democratic liberal. Now the Republican candidate is likely to face a Democrat identified in the public mind as a Southern conservative. For this is how Johnson is viewed by many, despite the support he has given as vice president to the Kennedy legislative program and his efforts to shed the tag of sectionalism. Nevertheless, the Republicans perceive a broad avenue leading toward the nomination of a man who can try to out-Johnson Johnson in being for positive action on civil rights and for prudent social welfare programs without having to bear the party umbrage of being a "me-too" candidate. The Republican who ordinarily would fit this description is Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York. But to get his party's nomination, Rockefeller will have to overcome the political liability of divorcing his wife of 35 years and marrying a divorced mother of four children. If Rockefeller cannot surmount this political barrier-and many liberal Republicans are indicating by searching frantically elsewhere for a champion that they think he cannot-Nixon may prove to be their only refuge.

Birthplace of Kennedy May Be National Shrine BROOKLINE, Mass. (UPI)-A modest, white clapboard home appears destined to be- cqme a national shrine. This nine - room house at 83 Besls Street ^vas the birthplace of President Kennedy. It appears only a question of time before it becomes a permanent memorial. Approval Needed The Board of Selectmen were expected to give swift approval Monday to such a proposal. However, final approval must await action of the Brookline Town meeting in April. The house is owned by Mrs. Louis Pollack, a 74 - year - old widow on Social Security. She sleeps in the bedroom where President Kennedy slept as a baby. The late President was born here May 29, 1917. He lived here three years. Last July 11 he wrote a letter to Mrs. Pollack which said in part: "There is within each man a very special affection for the place of his birth and I am deeply pleased to know that you are living full and enjoyable life at my birthplace. I hope you will continue to do so for many years to come." Earlier Plan Opposed An earlier proposal that the town take this house and eight others surrounding it by eminent domain to build a memorial park met strong opposition from the home owners. The house has four bedrooms on the second floor, two large rooms in the attic and a kitchen, dining room and living room on the first floor. The only indication that the house is the birthplace of the President is a small bronze plaque mounted on a huge boulder on the front lawn. The plaque was put there by the :own fathers. . It reads: "Birthplace of John ?. Kennedy, 35th President of :he United States. "Born May 29, 1917, on this site, 83 Beals St., Brookline, Massachusetts." Status STANFORD, Calif. (UPI) -A sociological study shows Stanford University students from lower income families do well academically, but remain "social outsiders" while attending the school.
