mzY By Kate Osana "Colly, that Nero sure had some blasts!" WASHINGTON Goldwofer engineers oil first bcrilet steamroller By Bruce Biossat WASHINGmv — (NEA) — The strategy forces of Arizona Sea, Barry Goldwater are beginning to push hard to achieve new momentum which might carry hhn to first-ballot nomination at San Francisco in July. Fresh signs of forward mo tion are needed to offset an ex pected defeat ia the May 15 Oregon primary, recent low scores in national polls, the comparatively modest 512,000 vote total in the Illinois primary. Spot checks around the nation indicate that the senator's efforts to force the pace may bear important fruit. There are also indications that some of this pressure may generate damaging reactions, Tennessee is a key item in the new drive. Goldwater bid for aU 28 delegates. With the Senator's "sell TVA" statement rankling in many politicians' bosoms, the outlook for months has been 18 at the most. District conventions in Tennessee have been yielding just about the expected results. But Gold water's strategists are now pressing for a dramatic com mitment at the May 2 state convention which would largely OTap up the whole bundle. Sources in Tennessee report' a "swing back to Barry," which suggests a better-than- even chance this strategy may work. All along, independent ap praisers have conjectured that Goldwater would fall about 30 votes short of capturing the 11 state South's convention total of 279. If Goldwater can successfully force the issue in Tennessee May 2, he can close one • third of that small but significant gap. Early reports from city and county conventions indicate similar pressures may be at work in Virginia, where another sizable Goldwater loss has been in prospect. The state's 30 delegates will be named in a convention June 13. But the new head of steam is being felt well beyond the South. Tension has been high in recent delegate battles in Kansas and Iowa as Goldwater leaders turned their levers for maximum effect. After the dust setUed m Kansas, Goldwater appeared to have gained a fighting chance U> win a bare majority of the j state's 20 delegates, whereas earlier it seemed he might fall ,as low as eight. Yet the out- jcome still has to be regarded as somewhat fuzzy. The Goldwater vs. anti-Goldwater fight in Kansas, curiously entangled with purely state issues and personalities, stirred bitter resentments. The delegate-choosmg preliminaries in Iowa, with 24 votes at stake, were even more pain- iful. Angry Goldwater backers in some sectors threatened non- co-operation with the party organization. Moderates were annoyed when William Knowland, Goldwater's California chief, came into Iowa exhorting all to 'get on the bandwagon." The net of all this is that Goldwater, despite reverses and erosions, is keeping his .actual and potential convention [delegate total somewhere above ,500 out of the 655 needed to nominate. This leaves out of account many "leaners" who could be his if the game clear 'ly is going his way. The goal of the new hard- push strategy, obviously, is to boost the Goldwater potential enough so that a confidently hoped-for victory over New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller in the 86-vote California pri mary would put the senator on I the edge of triumph and thus i attract all the learners — and more. But the present maneuvering is not without its price. Hostile reactions have already been noted. In some quarters the strategy is vieved as evidence of real fear in the Goldwater camp. More than a few state 'leaders say they think substantial parts of the senator's delegate potential are at the breakaway point. They consider his totals deceptive. Realists nevertheless argue (that the big numbers are still Iwith Barry. And if the new pressures can. add materially to them, he could conceivably go over the top a month before convention time. Yet the test of the stepped-up effort still lies ahead. Concerf fn August Beatle ticket sale develops into near-riot ...Gef more for your money Move or store the •easy Mayflower way!

STUART m-aw Exduiir* Agtnh Am Mayfhwr Transit Co. HOLLY^VOOD (UPI) — HoUy- WDod got an idea Saturday of what it will be like to have Britain's Beatles here this summer. There was a near-riot when tickets went on sale for the singing group's scheduled one- Inight-only Aug. 13 appearance ' in the Hollywood Bowl. All 17,256 tickets were sold within three hours. Most of the tickets, 13,256, were sold at the Bowl office, another 4,000 going by way of mutual agencies. SLt carloads of sheriffs deputies came to the rescue of two clerks at a music store in suburban Eosemead. The clerks said they were pelted with apples and papers and a few- bottles by about 200 unhappy girls who rushed into the building upon bemg told tickets weren't available. An.xious teen-agers spent the night outside the Hollywood Bowl grounds waifeig for the ticket office to open. Police managed to keep them off the grounds until 3 a.m. SUPREME COURT MEETS WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Supreme Court meets today to hand down deciaons and orders in some of the 47 cases it has under advisement. Rumford sees court ban on repealer By OE VAN L. SHUMWAY UniM PrM» lnttm«ri«n«l SACRAMENTO (UPI) — The author of the Bumford Housing Act made it clear today that he doesn't believe his'ise^ law will be put before the people in No vember, after alL "As a curbstone lawyer," said Negro Assemblyman William By Rumford, "it wotild seem to me the initiative (to repeal the act) embraces more than one subject — and is unconstitution- aL" And he expects the state Su- preine Court to make just such a ruling soon—definitely before November and maybe before the June primary election. Rumford said there is a precedent for such a ruling in a court decision some years ago declaring a pensioner initiative sponsored by George McLain unconstitutional. The lawmaker points at two recent elections as proof that the repealer, sponsored by real estate interests, could fail even if it does make the general election ballot. For example, an El Cerrito city councilman two months ago asked his council to go on record favoring the housing act but got turned down flat. He resigned. The other two councilmen were defeated recently in a bid for re-election. In Albany, where thei'e are few Negroes, the highest vote in the council election came for a candidate who had pubHcIy supported the housing act. "I'm hot loo sure California citizens are ready to turn do^vn what we call fair housing," Rumford said. "We will not know this until November." What does he expect in November? 1 expect a very, very close vote—providing the issue is not determmed by the courts prior to that time. "I think that between now and November with strong church support, with strong la^ bor support and with a good or ganization to bring out the truth...our citizens of California will do the right thing." Does he feel civil rights dem onstrations, almost certain to increase during the summer months, will have any effect on the November vote? 'Naturally, I'm opposed Us violence wherever it might «p pear," he answered, "whether ott a picket line or somebody's home or on the street. "At the same time, the demonstrations show a great deal of interest on the part of others than Negroes. For instance, one picket line in San Francisco had 500 Caucasians and nine Negroes" "This would lead me to he- hevethis struggle for rights is not just centralized in one racial group. R could very well be that the people of the state are thinking in terms of equal rights for all people." Assemblyman Robert Monagan, B-Tracy, meanwhile made public the results of a poll of his district which included ques tions on Rumford's Act. The questionnaire showed that 61.1 per cent of those who an swcred the poll would have voted against the bill and only 24.4 per cent for it. On the im'tiative, SIA per cent said they would vote to repeal the Rumford Act while 29.1 per, cent said they would vote to retain it. Only 9.5 per cent werej undecided.

Redlands Daily Facts MoiL, April 27, 1964 - 7 Human understanding needed says Scranfon ^PirrsBUBGH (UPI)-Pemi- sylvani* Gov. William W. Scran ton today told the gen eral conference of the Methodist Church that its members "can do a great deal to pro mote human uaderstandmg." Scranton,.in a welcoming address to the assemblage, said one of the most "important problems which we face is common understanding and the relationship of people to one another.*-' "By moral force alone does the world really live," Scranton said. Scranton's address was an obvious pitch for civil rights, one .of the most important iS' sues facing the quadrennial general conference during its two-week meeting here. The conference will decide whether to abolish the all-Negro central jurisdiction. The main meeting adjourned shortly after Scranton's speech. The delegates will attend various committee meetings for the remainder of the day. Bishop Gerald Kennedy of Los Angeles, in an episcopal address opening the two-week conference Sunday, urged immediate abolition of the non geographic central jurisdiction in which most of the denomi nation's Negro churches are ad ministratively placed. Bishop Kennedy's statement was ap proved last week by the 82 bishops of the 10 miUion-mem- ber church, the second largest MAY LEAVE HOSPITAL HOLLYWOOD (UPI)-British actor Peter Sfellers, hospitalized since suffering a near-fatal heart attack three weeks ago, may be able to leave the confinement of a hospital in another week. Spokesmen at Cedars of Lebano Hospital said the actor's condition continued to be satisfactory and he is permitted visits by friends. However, it was noted that Sellers still faces several months of recuperation. SELL IT TOMORROW With low - cost Classified Ada Protestant denomination. Kennedy said the conference, the supreme law-maMng body of the church, should free itself of any mark of racial segregation immediately. ^ Outside the Civic Arena, where Kennedy addressed the 900 clergy and lay delegates, a group of pickets carried signs urging aboUtion of the all-Negro jurisdiction. "Abolish central jurisdiction — a symbol of segregation," read one sign. The Methodist (Jjurch consists administratively of sis jurisdictions — five geographic and the non-geographic central jurisdiction which includes most ol the church's 370,000 Negro members. Bishop Kennedy said no minister of layman should question the church's clear stand on the race question. "We are dedicated" to the proposition that all men are created equal, all men are brothers, and all men are of eternal worth in the eyes of God," he said. "Prejudice against any person because of color or social status is a sin. "Compromises in this field have brought nothing but shame to us and today we stand under the judgment of God," Bishop Kennedy said. 'The church which does not cleanse itself of this sickness, brings comfort to'the enemies of Christ and betrays its Lord." Four years ago, the church declined to abolish the central jurisdiction, but, in a compromise, decided to phase it out over an indefinite period.
