Barry Goldwalor, R-Ariz., says "I don't spend my time worrying about conservative and too - conservative. I worry about the radical left in government." Goldwater added, "I'm more at a news conference Monday when asked about Gov.. Nelson A. Rockefeller's recent advice to him to disavow supporters on the radical right for his own good and for the good of the country. Gldwater added, "I'm more concerned about the Americans for Democratic Action who are in government and who advocate centralization of government than any right-wing society members who are not in government." Goldwater, conservative Republican and like Rockefeller a pos.- sible contender for the presidential nomination next year, did not name any rightist group. Americans for Democratic Action- supports liberal candidates and causes and is a frequent target of Republicans. Goldwater said: "The Democratic strategy is to lump the word 'conservative' along with any objectionable group whom they come across." This strategy, he said, is intended "to have Republicans eat Republicans, and I'll be damned if I'll follow suit."

Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield, Mont., told newsmen following a weekly White House legislative conference that t h e I'.fc. test ban negotiator, Undersecretary of State W. Averell Harriman, made "a tremendous impression" Monday during an appearance at a joint meeting of three Senate committees on the test ban treaty. No Gimmicks As far as the senators could tell so far, Mansfield said, there are "no gimmicks, no side issues" tied to the treaty. Senate ralifi- in the three-power agreement can become final. While Mansfield indicated Harriman's explanation of the treaty was impressive, a good many senators still were withholding a final commitment on whether they would vote for ratification. They wanted to get a better sampling of the opinions of the folks back home. Has Broad Support Briefings given by Harriman and other administration spokesmen Monday to congressional committees indicated broad support for the pact in the House as well as the Senate, Mansfield said, and he was more optimistic than many other senators that ratification would come fairly fast.

Rescue crews dug 10 more persons from the rubble before the blasting began Monday night. Trapped for more than 80 hours, they were located by a tiny mi crophone inserted into'the ruins. In case there were more survivors, the dynamite charges were planted only in buildings where no one could be alive. The government hurried to level this once bustling city of 270,000. Fear of a typhus outbreak left no choice. The government promised that Skopje, capital of Yugoslav Macedonia, will rise again. Geologists are to decide whether the present, centuries-old site is safe for rebuilding or whether survivors should begin life anew at another location. Dynamite blew apart cracked buildings checked first for signs of life with the microphone, so sensitive it can pick up the sound of a man breathing. The count of dead stood near 1,000.

Will Appeal Ruling on Senate Basis CHICAGO (UPI)-A union leader vowed today to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court a ruling upholding an amendment giving clownstate Illinois permanent control of the state Senate. A special panel of federal judges ruled in a split decision Monday that Illinois does not have to apportion its Senate on the basis of population. Two judges in separate decisions upheld the constitutionality of a 1954 state amendment giving downstate lawmakers control of the state Senate by a 34-24 margin despite population now or in the future. A suit challenging the constitutionality of the amendment was filed by Joseph Germano, director of United Steel Workers District 31, and seven other union representatives living in Cook County. The suit claimed the amendment was not fair to urban voters. Germano said he would appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Elmer Schnakenberg of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and U.S. District Court Judge William J. Campbell upheld the amendment. U.S. District Judge Richard B. Austin dissented but did not write an opinion. ( of Gouverneur, N.Y., and his German wife. Other Americans known to have been in Skopje escaped. Crews labored in an almost unbearable stench of the dead and broken sewers. A heat wave and a water shortage compounded the atmosphere of nausea. The government predicted that once a fleet of trucks, tractors, bulldozers and earthmovers rolled into high gear, the city would be cleared in a matter of days. Officials discovered that hundreds of hastily dug graves were too shallow. Hygiene teams were ordered to spray them with disinfectant while deeper trenches were dug for mass reburials. A new tremor flickered under the ruins of the city during the night. It brought down the weakened hulk of a two-story building. Buddhists Parade, No Violence SAIGON, Viet Nam (AP) President Ngo Dinh Diem's government made no attempt today to break up large crowds of Buddhists demonstrating against alleged religious persecution. About 15,000 Buddhists staged a two-mile procession through the streets of the central city of Hue. In Saigon, about 5,000 Buddhists massed in streets around the city's main pagoda with banners that said "religious persecution is an act of the Middle Ages People." Unlike previous demonstrations, there was no violence, no barricades and, for the first time since tempers began flaring in the church-state dispute three months ago, combat police stayed away.

Angry Over Killings In N. Korea WASHINGTON (UPD-U.S. offi cials said today the Communist killing of another American soldier in Korea appeared part of a deliberate campaign by Red China to raise tension in Asia and sabotage East-West cold war discussions. They predicted stepped up Communist activity in the Indian border area and South Viet Nam, as Officials Angry well as Korea. Officials were angered by the killing early today of another U.S. soldier as a result of Red military forces penetrating United Nations territory south of the demilitarized truce zone in Korea. The State Department was preparing another stiff public condemnation of the North Korean Communists for the action. Peking appears^ determined, U.S. officials said, to increase tension to show Communist China's bitterness at Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev's refusal to follow their "hard line" toward the United States. The Chinese Communists, in the view of authorities here, also undoubtedly would like to poison the atmosphere and sabotage the limited nuclear test ban treaty just agreed upon by Russia, Britain and the United States. The Chinese Communists have boasted that they expect to explode their own nuclear device within the "not too distant future." Western authorities admit this is, possible but say it would be many years before they could refine it into an effective nuclear weapon and create a delivery system.

Looking "under every bush," in the words of one U.S. commanding officer, the forces hunted down infiltrating saboteurs on missions close by the headquarters of the U.S. 4th Cavalry Regiment command post, six miles south of the Korean demilitarized zone. The fighting was the farthest south of the buffer area since the Korean armistice was signed July 27, 2953.

Command spokesman who confirmed the four North Koreans were dead, said they could be part of the same raiding patrol which machine-gunned a 1st Cavalry Division jeep Monday, killing two U.S. soldiers and wounding another on their way to guard duty in the demilitarized zone. On Espionage Mission? There also was speculation the four North Koreans killed today were agents bound on a mission of violent espionage. While an American Army helicopter hovered overhead, about 50 national policemen and half a dozen U.S. soldiers closed in. Two hand grenade explosions were heard, leading to speculation the agents took their own lives. Seizes Woman Associated Press photographer Kim Chong-kil and reporter An Mu-hun arrived on the spot shortly before the shooting started this afternoon. They interviewed the husband of an old woman who was held captive by the four Communists. The woman was held about 20 minutes and let go.

The 24-year-old Seiler and another soldier were killed and a third was wounded in a dawn attack just south of a demilitarized zone about 20 miles from Seoul as they rode in a jeep to a guard post.

He wrote, "We were training last week and on night duty this week," and concluded the letter, "pray for peace and I'll see you next year." "Those damn commies. They're a bunch of skunks," said his embittered father, Erich, a farmer near this southeastern Wisconsin community. But Mrs. Seiler said, "You can't blame those boys (Communists). They only do what they're told—just like our boys. Their countries train them to kill. You can't blame them." Gets Eggs for Honesty PASADENA, Tex.
