Hiton Ltktly to Write the Platform By JACK BELL Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Unless something Untoward hap* pens to him on the way to the nomination at the August con* Mention, Richard M. Nixon is likely to become editor-in-chief ef the Republican platform. Senate Republican leader Everett M. tHrksen will be in Charge of drafting the platform planks, Dirksen is a reasonable man in such matters, wise in the ways of nominating conventions. No one has to fell the Illinois senator that If Nixon looks like a certain winner before the con* vention opens, what the fornvvr vice president wants in the platform is what will wind up in that document. The Republican governors created a months-long uproar in an effort to force GOP National Chairman Ray C. Bliss to name Gov. Raymond P. Shafer of Pennsylvania as a co-ch,iirmnn with Dirksen of the platform committee. The governors contended publicly they wanted representation of their generally moderate viewpoint in the platform, Privately they were against having the aging Dirksen claim the television spotlight in reading that platform to the convention. They feared it would distort the youthful Image they have tried to fashion for their party. Dirksen balked at a co-chairman. Bliss stood fast behind him. The governors gave up but decided to hold their own series of regional hearings on platform proposals. They will whip these proposals together and turn them over to Dlrksen's committee, These proposed planks will be stacked alongside rough-drafted planks taken from more than 30 statements on national issues by the Republican Policy Coordinating Committee. Then the compromise planning and cutting will begin. This Is the point at which Nixon, if he has the necessary majority of delegate votes in his pocket, will step in. Nixon has said he will confer with all of the 26 GOP governors, among others, about what they think ought to be in the platform. Unless he encounters unexpected opposition from some candidate who lias yet to surface, he will have great latitude in editing the final draft. While Nixon has supported use of whatever military force is necessary in Vietnam, he will want an alternative to President Johnson's war course that will give him the opportunity to promise peace if elected. He will have had part of a hot summer to come up with some suggestions on how to curb and cure the rioting In the slums. Those who now profess that Nixon is too conservative for ."their tastes may be pleasantly surprised by the results. They have forgotten that in 1960 he iwas an "Eisenhower" Republi- 'can, a label that then meant progressive. James Marlow, who usually writes this column, is ill.

Thomas Lee Hayes, head of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship, said the ceremony he conducted was adapted from the Canadian Book of Common Prayer "In honor of all who are resisting the draft here and In Canada." Warren Says He Dislikes Police Spies WASHINGTON "(AP) - Chief Justice Earl Warren has nwde clear to a California prosecutor he doesn't like the use of police undercover agents who He to suspects In order to confuse them. Warren exploded in anger Tuesday during arguments before the Supreme Court on the murder conviction of Lucille Miller of Alta Loma, Calif. Her lawyer, F. Lee Bailey, urged reversal of the conviction, saying police planted an undercover agent In the jail cell occupied by Mrs. Miller after her arrest for the 1964 fire death of her husband, Gordon E, Miller. Mrs. Miller told the undercover agent, Peggy Fisk, that she was in love with a lawyer and that when she got the insurance benefits resulting from her dentist husband's death she would go to Europe with her children. But Mrs, Miller also told the police agent her husband died accldentially In the fire which swept their car.

New critical statements against the most liberal Caech elements came Tuesday night from {xirty ideologists in East Berlin and Budapest, Hungary.
