Murphy, former chancellor of the University of Kansas, for the Republican presidential nomination. With limited acquaintance of Franklin Murphy, now chancellor of the University of California at I,os Angeles, we would second the nomination, and agree with the Journal editor that the Republicans face certain defeat in 'G-1 with candidates mentioned NO far. Nixon rm had it politically, Rockefeller is happy with Happy and there's no use spoiling a prolonged honeymoon with a presidential campaign, and Harry Goldwater's ultra-ron«ervatism won't give him a on the White From the Journal we learn that Franklin Murphy, with a name as patriotic as they conic, has family roots deep in American soil, that he is a devoutly religious Protestant, a veteran of World War II, a Midwcsterncr with high repanl on both coasts, and has a handsome wife and children who would do honor to the White House. As a university admini.silralor, ho has to deal with politicians, governors, legislators, and congressmen, and should know how to cope with bureaucracy. His only dangerous attribute, says the Journal, is a sense of humor which might make il tough to put up with the dull rituals of politics without laughing at himself. He is a politically unknown, 'tis true, but this is his refreshing appeal over those politically known.

With liquor by-the-drink becoming lejriil in the Hawkeye state this summer, there are moves, under county option, to make some counties dry. Such is the case at Spencer, in northern Iowa, where the Chamber of Commerce has received a veiled threat from a rural minister of an economic boycdtl if the Chamber takes a 'Vet" stand. In a letter to the Chamber, the minister points out that Spencer is dependent on the rural areas of the county for survival economically. If the church members in that county can stage an effective boycott, we would have to admire their strength of conviction, but express doubt if this would be possible in most counties — including this one. We would point out that if all church members '(those whose names are on a church roll) practiced total abstinence from alcoholic beverages, the liquor problems would be solved in most localities. Bars and liquor stores would be forced out of business. The Iowa minister said his church "has been sleeping for years but it is coming to life." Churches •need to come to life as an effective force in community morality, and it must start within the membership of the churches themselves. A church which preaches and teaches abstinence from alcohol can't do so effectively when its own members refuse to practice this code of living. in part by ment, is tv economy." Ramey: "No sir."

This is the word from the fair's president, Andy Gray, who reported, that the fair board has rejected an offer from Massachusetts Commissioner of Commerce John Burke to supply clams, lobster, seaweed and other ingredients for a genuine clambake.
