2s, t968 Using Power 1 in Politits lakes Ability v. By WALTER R. MEARS '- Associated Press Writer ; ' WASHINGTON (AP) - Dem- £>cratlc governors have affirmed %at their Republican counterparts had been proving for 18 Months: Apparent political pow- -gr and the ability to use it are two different things. "-:• The 26 Republican governors '£nd the 24 Dem o cra ts have teen 'unable to create consensus 'among themselves on a presidential nominee for their respective parties. '••' The Democrats talked about it ifjn St. Louis April 15 and got no•Where. Republicans chose more fashionable retreats for their disagreement— White Sulphur ^Springs, W. Va., Jackson Hole, •iWyo., Palm Beach, Fla. >. There are individual commit- •inents to candidates in each party, but no one has welded a governors' bloc of major benefit to a single candidate. It's possible many governors can't exercise total control over their national convention delegates. Democrat Harold Hughes of Iowa acknowledged this difficulty. Hughes, a Senate candidate, said people supporting his candidacy include Democrats backing all three top contenders for the presidential nomination, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy and Vice President Hubert H, Humphrey. A McCarthy agent put it more succinctly: "If Hughes comes out for Bobby our kids in Iowa will go after him." Hughes evidently is not alone in that situation. His Democratic gubernatorial colleagues, feeling the pressure for presidential commitments and hoping to ease it, were generally delighted to adopt a statement in St. Louis promising decisions of conscience on the White House contest-but not right now. Similarly, Republican governors in June 19G7 advocated that uncommitted delegations be sent to the GOP convention. Texas Gov. John B. Connally both Johnson allies, were two of the men who asked that the Democratic governors meet in St. Louis earlier this month. Behind their request, it appeared, was a concern that with President Johnson out of the race, there might be a gubernatorial rush to the Kennedy camp. Administration loyalists wanted to slow things down and insure that Humphrey support was not foreclosed even before he announced his candidacy. But there was no rush to Kennedy. A small minority of the 2G Republican governors has been trying to line up presidential commitments among their colleagues almost since 19G4, with an identical lack of success. Like the Democrats, the Re- Chance for Phone Strike End Seen By NEIL GlLBKlUh AP Labor Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The union leader directing the. eight-day-old nationwide tele* phone strike says chances look good for breaking the deadlock in wage talks, More than 200,000 members of President Joseph A. Beirne's A F L -C I 0 Communications Workers union are involved in the walkout in about 40 states, but there has been little effect on most telephone service across the country. "At this point, I can report definitely that things are looking up," Beirne said Wednesday of continuing informal talks with Bell Telephone System officials. Beirne said negotiators on both sides now favor abandoning the 18-month wage reopener provision- which set off the first nationwide telephone strike in 21 years-and writing a new three-year agreement.

Basically at issue Is the soundness of a national-level assessment that the Soviets will not develop a supersonic strategic bomber with far-reaching missiles during the next six years. Gen. John P.

McNamara also based his thinking on the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) of what the Soviets might be expected to do in the area of strategic bombers between now and 1976, the period in question. This projection, drawn up about last October, was that the Soviet Union would stick generally with the strategic bomber force it already has. This includes 155 bombers capable of reaching the United States without refueling. McConnell, testifying before the Senate Armed Serviced Committee in February, said, "I don't agree with" and "I don't subscribe to" the NIE view. The four-star general said he felt the Soviets would indeed put into operation a new supersonic BENEFIT BASKETBALL GAME Two benefit basketball games featuring the lady teachers vs ladles of the city and men teachers vs men of the city, will be held in Harris Gymnasium Friday night April 26th, beginning at 7:30.
