Hit By Goldwater WITH GOLDWATER IN NEW HAMPSHIRE (AP)-Campaigning Sen. Barry Goldwater said today a United Nations vote to admit Red China would put the world body "almost completely in the hands of our enemies." "It's like inviting Al Capone to a Sunday evening social," said Goldwater, launching the second day of his hunt for votes in New Hampshire's first-in-the- nation presidential primary. Goldwater, seeking the Republican nomination for the White House, said "I can see no real reason for any western; power to stay in the United Na-| tions" if Communist China becomes a member and her back ers take the upper hand. Goldwater told a news con ference in Keene that ever sine the assassination of Presiden John F. Kennedy radicals have been trying to stifle honest dis sent in the United States. "The liberals, I prefer to cal them radicals, were the mos disappointed group in the worlc when the assassin turned out to be an extreme leftist, not member of the Birch Society or a friend of Goldwater," he said He called President Johnson's latest proposals to the disarmament conference another step toward "unilateral disarmament." # * * "He proposes nothing new, except that we stop making fissionable materials," Goldwater said. Goldwater warned of "Fascism on the left" as he pressed his campaign for votes. The Arizona senator -- outfitted with his first pair of overshoes to cope with the New Hampshire slush - scheduled another packed day of person to person campaigning for the March 10 primary. # « * Goldwater planned more of the Informal campaigning he has made his New Hampshire style.

Rockefeller in a call to voters to rally to his conservative colors. BEAGLE MEETS BARRY -- Sen.
