WASHINGTON NixoB seen in editors pel OS GOP choice WASmNGTON — (NEA) Editors poUed across the country choose Richard M. Nixon by a «ide margin as the likely winner of the 0364 Republican presidential nomination at S a n Francisco. This is the verdict dran-n from a poll taken by Newspa per Enterprise Assodation among its many hundreds of client newspapers. More than 300 editors in every; state but ^lississippi responded to a broad series of questions bearing upon the 1964 GOP race. Among editors who joined in the survey, 133 or 44.2 per cent believe loxon ^dll tdn the nomi' natiaa as he did four years ago. Seventy editors, or 23.3 p e r cent, label Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge the probable nomi-j nee. In third place is Pennsyl vania 's Gov. William Scranton. who is rated the winner by 48 editors, almost 15 per cent of those answering. Arizona's Sen. Barry G o 1 d- watcr, the current GOP front runner irilh a presently estimated convention delegate total of 500 out of a needed 655, stands fonrtb in the editors' judgment. Just 40 of the more than 300 respondeDts — 13.3 per cent — think Barry will wind up with the nomination. The most devastating verdict of an is reserved for New Yorit GOT . Nelson Rockefeller. Only four editors, a bare 1.3 per cent, expect Mm to emerge on top at San Francisco. Scranton. third highest in (lie presidential sweepstakes, is the editor 's dear choice as the Republican party's probable vice presidential, nominee for 1964. He received the vote of 86 editors — 28.6 per cent of the total respottdoig to the poU. Fi^-one editors think Lodge win repeat his I960 role as running mate, 44 give the pahn to Kentucky's Sen. Thruston Mor- By Bruce Biossat ton, 31 voted for Goldwater and 27 for Mxon. A considerable number, 14 per cent, offer no opinion on the vice presidency. Greatest responses to the poll were from the Midwest, whose editors supplied 33 per cent of the totaL The Smith contributed 20 per cent of the replies. Top-rated Nixon draws most of his support from the Midwest (46 editors) and South (29), with sizable backing showing up in the Plains states. The editors who mark Lodge the winner for lie No. 1 spot are rather well sprinkled about the nation. Scranton draws half of his third place status from the Slidwest Almost three - quarters of the responding editors say their newspapers have not and will not endorse any candidate for the nomination. Most of these never do. Some 20 editors say their papers usually do endorse I but will not this time. Of the editors whose newspapers cither have endorsed or may do so, 42 per cent have given their approval to Barry .Goldwater. No other candidate lhas more than a mere handful of endorsements. The endorsing list includes 10 newspapers which usually do not make a cJioice at this stage. (furiously, about one-third of the editors whose papers have I endorsed Goldwater think JNixon, Z/)dge or Scranton will turn out to be the actual nominee. Only a few editors volunteer any comment as to why they j believe Ni.\on will be the win- |ncr. Sorse, however, cvplain why they think the most active bidders — Goldwater and Rockefeller — won't make it E. J.

Richard B. Russell, D-Ga., who heads .the southern opposition, indicat- jed they might not have to use the gag rule approach after alL GOP Leader Everett M. Dirksen, ni.. told a reporter after the final leadership meeting in his office: "I think we'fl probably be voting on the amendment without cloture (the debate limiting gag rule) by Wednesday. There starts, do not seem to attract _ 'get through' feeling. (They) don't seem to hit" is every reason to think things have taken a completely new turn and there will be a vote by Wednesday." The Dirksai-Mansfield proposal would guarantee a jury trial in any criminal contempt case arising from the civil rights bill which involves a penalty exceeding 30 days' impris onment or $300 fine. Russell calls this a "legal monstrosity," and favors a broader guarantee. Lucky Mr. X will have to pay $80^ tax WESTBURY, N. Y. (UPI) The mysterious "Mr. X" who picked four straight wiimers at Roosevelt Raceway Tuesday ni^t will have to pay more than $80,000 to Uncle Sam — if and when he collects his record twm double payoff of $132,239.80. An official of the U. S. Inter nal Revenue Service revealed Wednesday if the winner turns out to be a single man with no dependents, his federal income tax on such a windfall would be $82596. The lucky ticket holder would still have to pay a New York state income tax on his winnings — leaving him with less than $40,000 as a net profit. Another night passed at the Long Island baraess racing track Wednesday night without anybody tuniing in the lone winning ticket on the high est payofif in pari • mutuel his tory in this country. However, cme mystery was cleared up Wednesday when a raceway pari - rautuel clerk insisted he sold the winning tick- let to a man. The track had announced earlier that it thought the hjcky ticket-holder was a woman. ' George Hawkins, a mutnel clerk from Great Neck; N. Y., said he was reasonably certain that the purchaser was a six- foot male, weighing about 185 pounds, who wore a Hght- colored suit and hat. AEC CONDUCTS TEST WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) conducted a low yield nuclear test Wednesday at its Nevada test site. The AEC rates a low yield blast as one equal to less than 20,000 tons of dynamite. Space man speaks in Hungary BUDAPEST (UPI) — Msiting Soviet astronaut Andrian Nikol- ayev told Hungarian air force pilots Tuesday that future space ships will be i^'.'ilt to accommodate several persons, including scientists, engineers and d6c- tors. Nikolayev visited Kekske- met in east-central Hungary. Bads news for Johnson Not a womon's world, just too mony men WASHINGTON (UPI) — The I Labor Department has bad news for President Johnson's advancement of women cam paign—too many men. , The word is that men are ex pected to provide tougher competition for women seekmg jobs in the decade ahead. In fact, many of the men are gomg to be looking for work in professions that women have long dominated. School teachers, so- icial workers and librarians, for example. Rich silver strike reported in Colorado SILVER PLUJIE, Cob. (UPI) —A silver strike with ore run ning as high as an estimated $6,000 a ton was reported Tuesday in Clear Crek County, just west of Silver Plume. 'It's one of the most sensa tional silver strikes I've seen ID many, many years," said Bob Palmer, manager of the Colorado Mining Association. Pal mer inspected the site with Mike Zellen, one of two em­ ployes of the Silver Lake Min ing Co. who found the deposit of ruby silver last Saturday. Palmer said the strike was exceptionally rich, although not a large strike. "This is just a rich, little silver mine " he said. Palmer said ruby silver was found in a complex refractory ore which contains lead, some zinc and some iron sulphide. There were indications it extended for a considerable distance, he added. "It could extend dear to the Smuggler workings, 3,000 to 4,000 feet away," he said. Douglas Watrous, a mining en gineer who operates a mill near Idaho Springs, owns the property. It is leased to the SUver Lake Mining Co. And the girls are making only small and insignificant gains in the types of jobs traditionally held by their husbands: engineers, accountants and pbysi- dans. Labor Department experts say this is so "despite the pub- lidty given the growing acceptance of women in the occupations once resen'ed exclusively for men." Ns Answers Givtn They didn't say how to solve the problems this poses for Johnson, who wants to empha size the importance of women in government. Private employers are said to prefer men because women are always leaving to get married, have babies and raise their children. The Presidrait's own job offers get turned down for the same reasons sometimes. Besides, the Labor Department study says, women rarely plan a lifetime career because they expect (and hope) to get married. Almost all of them do. Finally, some bosses just do not like to have women around. Mort Available The figures indicate there will be plenty of college-trained women available during the 197GS. Women now receive two out of every five college de grees awarded in the United States. There will be about 3 million working women with a sheepskin by 1975— an increase of 800,000. But the number of men with college training is expected to climb even more—up by 2 million to 7 million during the next 11 years. Pay is another problem for the college girL The Labor Department says she earns "considerably less" than her male counterpart in the same job. For example, a typical male doctor earned $14,784 in 1959 but his female counterpart took in just $6,562. Among authors, editors and reporters the typical man was paid $7,154; the woman in the field got $3472. Redlands Daily Facts Thurs.
