It would have been a 1924 In reverse— two liberals and no one representing the conservative view. Rockefeller had gotten the word from the GOP convention twice before— when Nixon out- polled him in 1960, and Goldwater in 1964. And the New Yorker had the candor and courage to state publicly that nothing in the Republican ca mp today indicated any change In the party's earlier preference for Nixon. So It looks like a campaign between Nixon and Johnson with a sharp and clear issue on domestic spending policy dividing the two parties. Which is as itought to be, if the people are to have something to vote on. Receivership for Insurance Firm Filed LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A petition for receivership, charging that the National Fraternity Smith had' a 'capital "impairment or "insolvency *in the amount of $134,438" has been filed in circuit court in Sebastian County. A State Insurance Commissioner Allan Home said Thursday his 1 office had filed the petition. Home said the firm's license was revoked in January because it failed to remove the impairment within the 60 days required by the insurance code. Circuit Judge Paul Wolfe is tentatively scheduled to hear the petition March 27. Horne said his department would attempt to obtain reinsurance of the $1 million worth of ordinary life insurance the firm has in force so that no loss in money or insurance protection would be sustained by the poUcyholders. $104, 995 for Antlpoverty By DOUGLAS B, CORNELL Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - White House politlcos undoubtedly flung hats aloft in glee when Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller balked at skimming his own hat Into the ring for the Republican presidential nomination. Although President Johnson hasn't said he'll seek a second full term—and faces a rugged fight for renomlnation if, he does — there are personal as well as political reasons why he would rather see nearly anyone other than Rockefeller representing the GOP in November, Johnson likes Rockefeller personally, He has been able to get the New Yorker's help on occasion In lining up support among governors for some of the administration's programs. And the President has no love for Nixon. Through the years he has given the former vice presi- run- vice president, however, said he saw the possibility of this action.

J 'Rockefeller advanced four reasons for?hls decision not to try iagaln«for the Republican nomination—and he pointed to Nixon's long lead as the first of them. The governor said: "Quite frankly, I find it clear at this time that a considerable majority of the party's leaders want the candidacy of former Vice President Richard Nixon." In a time of deep cleavages of American opinion over the problems confronting the nation, Rockefeller said, "I do not be- HeVe that the way to compose perilous^ national division is to create more partisan division." fling-mate Lyndon B.

"If this is so, we ought to know about it so there won't be any further Injury to the animals," he added. The Army chemical and biological test area is located about 50 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. Moss said the Army on March 13 conducted nerve gas tests at Dugway. Sheep were found dead the next day within 35 miles downwind from the tests. State Agriculture Commissioner David R. Waldron said he and other representatives of state and federal agencies will meet today in emergency session with Gov. Calvin L. Rampton at the state Capitol. Waldron Is seeking help from federal officials in determining whether humans might be susceptible to whatever killed the sheep. ," The dead sheep were located at the Hatch ranch on open rangeland where stock has grazed for years. Waldron said that an unknown poison which affects the central nervous system apparently killed the animals, but it might be two weeks before laboratory tests could pinpoint a cause.

GPHeod/s Fearful of a Depression FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -Robert B, Pamplin, chairman of the board of Georgia-Pacific Corp., said here Thursday night he felt that continuation of the United States' current Vietnam policy would result in a "severe depression." Pamplin said this country had compounded a mistake by remaining In Vietnam. "We ought to get out and let the Asians settle their own problems," Paroplln said, "We cannot police the world. France and England have learned this already," Pamplin said that il the United States does not get out of Vietnam, huge financial deficits would result along with further depletion of the gold re. serve, He also said an unman, ageable debt would face the nation, He said these things would "add up to a severe de* presslon," ISO Art Filed in Iffffe ftocfc LITTLE RO^K (AP) Charges of possessing the nil* lucinatory drug LSD have been ftled against three persons who were arrested Feb. 20 by Wttle Rock police.

The Israelis said they lost only 30 of thsir men, The Jordanians claimed 200 of the Invaders were killed and said only 20 Jordanians wtre dead. The Jordanians also claimed they knocked out most of the Israeli tanks and vehicles which crossed the Jordan River. As the fighting ended, the Arabs and Israelis debated before the U.N. Security Council and sought support In the corridors and lounges at U.N. headquarters in New York. The Arabs were reported optimistic that the council would adopt a resolution condemning Israel and warning that "effective steps" would be taken If the attack was repeated. The semiofficial Egyptian newspaper Al Ahram declared that the Israeli attack has "buried forever all chances for a peaceful settlement In the Middle East." It promised Intensification of Arab guerrilla raids. The United States rebuked both Israel and Jordan, but American specialists In Middle East affairs expressed guarded hope that the outbreak would prove just another one-day incident. The State Department acknowledged that the Israeli Invasion was "In response-to terrorist attacks" but said It was "damaging to the hope for a settlement." * The Israeli chief of stalf, MaJ. Gen.
