They denied In private discussions that any alliance Is shaping up between the conservative Reagan and Republican moderates, who favor either Michigan Gov. George Romney or New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller for the party's presidential nomination. But such an alliance, aimed at front-running Richard M. Nixon, could make a great deal of sense to both camps. Romney's presidential hopes are tied directly to his uphill effort to defeat Nixon in the New Hampshire and Wisconsin presidential primaries. As for Rockefeller and Reagan, who have said they are not candidates but whose supporters keep pushing them, their chances depend largely on whether Nixon falters enough during the primary season to turn the GOP convention Into an open battle. Republican . congressional leaders, such as Wisconsin's Melvin R. Laird, who feel Rockefeller would be a stronger candidate than Nixon, think the former vice president will be the nominee if he sweeps primaries British Sure to Approve Asian Ban By RONALD THOMSON Associated Press Writer LONDON (AP) - Many members of Britain's House of Commons were troubled today as they gathered for the key vote on the Labor government's bill to stem the flood of Asians fleeing to Britain from Kenya. But despite the politicians' pangs, approval of the bill appeared certain. The government got an assist from the leaders of the Conservative opposition, who decided to support the immigration bill. However, they did not make this mandatory on members of their party. Many legislators confessed to feelings of guilt about slamming the door on Asians who chose British citizenship when the East African territories where they live became independent. The bill enables the government to limit to 1,500 a year Immigration of British citizens who were not born in Britain and whose parents were not born here, Hundreds of Asian residents of Kenya, denied work jwd business permits by Ken« "ya's program to Africanize Us economy, are arriving dally to beat the new British restric« (loos which are expected to be* come law by Thursday, The Times of London said the bill "deprives British citizens of their rights in a way which would clearly, In the United States, ipe unconstitutional and in Britain is unprecedented, "It is also 8 clear and definite preach of the word and honor of the British government!, .prob. ably tt)9 roost shameful megs, tire that Labor members have ever been asked,, ,to support," BQWever, the conservative DiUMfMl said Britain Is aj, ready overcrowded, "White natives see ttelrqwll* ty of We deciding and blame fee Immigrants," the Mall said, "Those comfcrtgbje liberals who liye mljes, iwiy from the probjem shpuM re member tt&t fee terrifying riots (a the yniu fd SJafes spring from bitterness between poor &IAS*§ i»4 poor VftWes,** four arofiftd,miAls |aye &eea Jnjtrodj&ed seeking rejection of toe bill ajey toe debate on Us sjspjjd. readjng tojfghj* PsJeSi was ejected for §|| §J ttxera, Tfaj bJlj must ciear (Jje second ffijif vote tofljg&j:. a routlae House of Lords, then be given the royal assent. _ There was speculation that » i i*f ( *« .*»'Mrt .* '-"i*-»1 ,'(!<• I **.Mt •JJ'i*' Conservative Party leader Edward Heath might Introduce an amendment to grant would be own for another clearance, which meant another long wait.

The Illinois senator said votes taken so far indicate a general desire for a bill—designed to protect Negroes and civil rights workers from violence—and he is inclined to believe a compromise can be worked out. His bargaining position was strengthened when a second move to cut off debate and bring the legislation to a vote fell short Monday of the necessary two-thlrds majority. The vote was 56-36 in favor of limiting further discussion, But senators pushing for a civil-rights protection bill and an open-housing amendment were able to cite the vote as additional evidence of majority support. It came on top of a 55-37 vote a week ago for cutting off the debate and a 58-34 vote against killing the proposed ban on discrimination In the sale or rental of about 97 per cent of U,S, housing, Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said he was willing to let the 6'week-old debate run on a few more days while compro* m(se efforts continue, Sen. Jacob K, Javits, R'N.Y,, said that on behalf of Sen. Philip A, Hart, P>Mjch, ( the bill's floor manager, he has submit' ted proposed modifications to Pirfcsen. • Without disclosing the pro' posed changes, Javits said he was satisfied they were rece}Y' Ing Pirksen's "sympathetic con-> sideration." But Javits and Hart said they thought it might take two or three days to work out a compromise which Pirksen might support. Although. Pirksen previously has opposed, federal ope^hous- ing legislation, he told reporters that a measure in this field be made satisfactory to will vote next time to'cut off ,'i .debate. ' : ; :v,V.;..:-;'!'.,"., '''*[ * The vote Monday was"6 H sllijr t of ,'th'e required 'two-'thlrtis'' majority. Voting for closure were 37 Democrats and .1,9 Repugll- cans. Against. were 19 Democrats and 17 Republicans. ;The only senator who switched his position from the vote a week before.was Norris .Cotton, R-N.H.; He voted for pending, the debate this time. ThlP House meanwhile passed, 307 to^5, a bill Intended to ban discrimination In the selection of federal jurors. Even If the Senate should approve a debate cut-off on a third attempt, more than a score of amendments in addition to the open-housing amendment can be called up for action. Among these are several antlriot proposals. And even more amendments are being offered. One newly submitted by Sen. Jack Miller, R.Iowa, would require civil-rights workers to be certified by the federal Civil Rights Commission to be protected under the bill.

Reagan supporters are also hoping many of the 1964 convex tlon delegates, who gave Gold* water the nomination on the first bailol, will be at Miami Beach eager to support the most conservative possibility. > Rockefeller has strong support among GOP governors, who will play a strong role in the selection of delegates from their states, < ;/...' One party source estimated . recently that at least 10 gover- ttors favor Rockefeller, to 4 i6r Nixon and S-Rockefeller himself and Rhode Island Gov. Hohn .M* Chaffer-for Romriey. Most of the other 10 governors are moderates who might favor a Rockefeller candidacy. Supporters of both Rockefeller and Reagan, who expect Nixon to win the early primaries, are looking toward Oregon as the best hope of stopping Nixon. Reagan already has the makings of a statewide organization there, and Rockefeller retains a strong nucleus of elected GOP officials from his 1964 primary victory there.

He declined to speculate on how many more troops might be sent to Vietnam, Russell and Senate Democrat* 1C Leader Mike Mansfield agreed the pacification program In Vietnam had been all but wrecked when protective troops had to be withdrawn from villages and hamlets to defend the cities against the recent Viet Cong raids. Mansfield said in a separate interview it is essential the program be revived, calling it the best hope for eventual stabilization of south Vietnam* Russell said he is suggesting that the Senate preparedness subcommittee call Chairman Earle G. Wheeler of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to testify on likely Increases In U.S. troop commitments In Vietnam. Wheeler, en route home from Vietnam, said In Honolulu that U.S. forces were not surprised when the Viet Cong launched the raids. "Contrary to some allegations, they— U.S. forces- were not taken by surprise by the enemy's Tet offensive," Wheeler told newsmen. "Rather, they were alert to the Impending attack, and Gen. William Westmoreland employed his troops in a timely and decisive manner to aid the South Vietnamese forces and to inflict major losses on the attacking units." Sen. Karl E.

But the Democrat who ranks second to Mansfield, Assistant Democratic Leader Russell B. Long, D-La., ;sald any pause would be "a bad mistake." Long said the American people "are getting disgusted with this talk of a pause, of pulling your punches when the enemy Is slugging you." •» Beer Permit Fees Raised LITTLE ROCK (AP)- Harrel Hughes, director of the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, raised the beer permit fees of the caterers to the Oaklawn Jockey Club Monday from $130 for 10 permits to $405.
