Galesbur ister-Moil, Gaelsbur *Relax-They Agreed to Wait a Whilel 9 GOP Nomination May Be ark) Horse By PETER EDSON WASHINGTON (NEA) year before the Republican National Convention nominates its A about equal die-hard strength at San Francisco, with neither being able to get ft majority (of the nomination. 1964 presidential candidate in Since both Rockefeller and San Francisco, the job seems up for grabs. r Sixteen possibilities are already being mentioned. More may be expected. The fact that so many nominees are being put in the running indicates nobody has the nomination sewed up. THE CURRENT theory of some observers, that New York Gov, Nelson Rockefeller and Arizona Sen. Barry Goldw&ter have knocked each other out on the civil rights and far right issues, is probably premature. There is still plenty of steam behind both drives, though neither man has formally announced. The factor which brings out all the other presidential possibilities seems to be a fear that Rocke- Goldwater have their enemies as well as their friends, the hunt is on for a compromise candidate nobody is mad at and who would satisfy a majority in the badly split GOP. This is what brings out the favorite son suggestions. They would control state delegations for the opening ballots to establish bargaining positions. There are eight so far.* In preferred positions are Gov. George Romney of Michigan, who is not far behind the two leaders, and Gov. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania. There are two other governors, James A. Rhodes of Ohio and Mark Hatfield of Oregon. In Congress there are three favorite son senators — Gordon feller and Goldwater will have Allott of Colorado, Clifford Case of New Jersey and Thruston B. Morton of Kentucky, though the last two disclaim any interest. Finally, Rep. James W. Byrnes of Wisconsin; THEN YOU COME to the really dark horses of whom there are six so far. Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel and ex-Sen. William F. Knowland of California are being proposed to head their state delegation as favorite son candidates for bargaining purposes. There is an element here of keeping the ultraconservatives from capturing the delegation and going for Gold* water. While former Vice President Richard M. Nixon — now a New Yorker — has announced he will not be a candidate in 1964, he does expect to have a loud voice in naming the candidate. If offered the nomination as a compromise, he'd probably take it. Gen. Lucius D. Clay is being boomed for the nomination by a committee headed by former Rep. Hamiitofl Fish of New York. Gen. Clay says he is not a candidate. Mr. fish says the general would be responsive tea draft. 1 Sen. John J. Williams of Delaware is being suggested by an* other group headed by Nicholas L. Kruysman, a New York envelope manufacturer. Sen. Williams has made a great record as an ex- poser of government waste and inefficiency. He has considerable stipport from businessmen. Rut in his home state he is regarded more as a vice presidential possibility. All the presidential possibilities who don't get top place on the GOP ticket may also be put in this class. THE MOST INTRIGUING DARK HORSE who has just come out of the shadows is Dr. Milton S. Eisenhower, Ike's brother, who is now president of John Hopkins dark horse of destiny they are University. All Republicans agree looking for. that the Eisenhower name is still magic with votefs, Dr. Eisenhower recently took over chairmanship of a Critical Issues Council for the Republican Citizens Committee, This is the group organized it the Eisenhower farm a year ago to muster support from independent and Democratic voters. The Citizens Committee has insisted all along that it is not an imitator of the Democratic Advisory Committee which operated under the late National Committee Chairman Paul Butler during the Eisenhower administration. But many responsible Republican leaders now admit that the policy papers prepared by DAC are responsible for John I\ Kennedy being in the White House today. If Dr. Milton Eisenhower could perform a similar miracle for the Republicans within the next year, it is conceded he might be the Test Ban Is Clearly West 9 Disadvantage EDITORIAL Comment and eview The Need of New Highways Plaintive stories are coming from the eral years at present planning.

WASHINGTON - It was December 1961, and Nikita Khrushchev thundered, "We'd be slobbering fools if we did not carry out nuclear tests." There was no evidence of senility last week as Khrushchev, smiling but not slobbering, gave the green lfght to his diplomatic lackey, Andrei Gromyko, to initial the partial nuclear test ban approved by representatives of Great Britain and the United States. In little more than 18 months, the ever-cagey Soviet premier had seen the nuclear balance of power tip in his favor and in July 1963 it was time for a test ban. NOT THAT the "ban" approved by the Bjg Three last week is what the name implies. While outlawed by word, tests can still be conducted outside the atmos­ phere. There is no way, as scientists of the Brg Three agreed in July 1959, to detect nuclear tests conducted far above the earth. Soviet scientists may find themselves working in East Germany, Hungary, Poland, and Rumania. Not covered by the ban, the Soviet-dominated countries of Eastern Europe may test — in the atmosphere, in outer space, in the tfttto the grounded to their sea, heart content. WERE the Soviets to keep their promise not to test — and past performances make this exceedingly doubtful — the test ban would still be to our disadvantage. Congressman Craig Hosmer, ranking Republican on the Joint Atomic Energy Committee and one of the country's best experts on nuclear strategy, tells why: 1. U. S. progress in development of high-yield, 30- to 100-megaton weapons will be paralyzed at the very time Soviet scientists have achieved these capabilities. The United States will be unable to cope with Khrushchev's long- range program of "hardening" his missile sites. The consequent inability to mete out destruction to Soviet weaponry will decrease the Capability of our deterrent force in direct ratio to increases in Soviet power. It is equivalent to cutting back our SAC (Strategic Air Command) squadrons, ICBM (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles) bases, and Polaris submarine patrols. 2. U.

Contrary to what we may be told or what we may think at times, the voice of the people still prevails in America. Each of us is part of that voice. Each of us is part of America. One special point should be remembered by anyone writing to a legislator or congressman. Be sure you know what you are writing about, and that you are not simply expressing some rather vague and off-beat suppositions. publican standing in the corner is only one such example. We've had a rash of such comparison morality in our country, with cities in various parts of the nation insisting that they're not as bad as cities in other sections. The truth is that such comparisons are illogical and illusory. They tend to excuse a social sin or deflect an honest judgment. To have indulged in a moral indiscretion is not to be justified because one's neighbor is involved in two indiscretions. IT REALLY DOESN'T matter whether we're worse or better than some other section. What matters is simply that there must be some brave men trying to meet the problems, some heroic souls who are^ holding the forces of violence in leash, some magnificent minds that continue to be at work.

Daylight Saving Time hurts a vast majority of our citizens, and its benefits are dubious, to say the least. Standard Time is an advantage to most, good for all, hurtful to none . . . Rep. Kenneth J. Gray, (D-West Frankfort, 111.) and Rep. Melvin Price, (D-East St. Louis, 111.) have introduced bills in Congress (HR- 2335 and IIR-2532) to amend the Federal Standard Time Act with a provision eliminating daylight saving time. Letters to Gray and Price would be very appropriate. Opposition to Senate Bill S-1033 is required as it carries a provision for daylight saving time. Write your Senators to oppose this bill. For further particulars and instructions you may write me.— H. H. Horner, National chairman, Citizens for Standard Time, Rt. 2, Murphysboro, 111. tween individuals and groups so that communication can exist within our own neighborhood. • More imaginative courage and less pathetic retreating in confusion. Scripture is filled with instances of the folly of trying to indulge in such petty comparison. Jesus took hold of great moral absolutes such as "Thou shalt not kill,"- and "Thou shalt not steal." His listeners were feeling complacent and comfortable. None of them had murdered a neighbor or robbed his purse. This easy piety was punctured by the moral insight of a positive action. THIS IS no time for any city anywhere to boast it is better than another, or to condemn a city by saying that it is worse than another. What is needed is a kind of moral discipline that keeps us looking at ourselves with the quality of honesty that comes from a precise and heroic faith. As Paul Scherer has written, "We proclaim a Gospel that didn't get out of a feather bed to yawn its way sleepily through the earth; it got down off crosses, came stalking up out of fire, with the smell of flames on it."

Strom Thurmond, a general in the Army Reserve, told colleagues behind closed doors, the Soviet Union has installed an anti-missile complex at Leningrad. ANTI-MISSILE defense in the hands of the Soviet Union is another way of saying our deterrent against Soviet attack has weakened. It, too, is the equivalent of cutting back our manned bombers, our Polaris missiles, out Atlas and Minutemen missiles. If the warheads carried by these delivery systems are to be intercepted by Soviet defenses with any degree of efficiency, then they will not loom as large as deterrents to Soviet button- pushers. Conversely, the absence of an anti-missile capability by this country permits a Soviet fir'st- strike, surprise attack that would destroy our deterrent forces before they are put in operation. 3, The partial test ban treaty fritfoduces to America the completely new hazard of surprise abrogation. This is the situation where Soviet scientists, working in secrecy, would prepare an extensive series of atmospheric tests. DURING this period, which might last for years, U. S. laboratory work would deteriorate in quality and quantity along with our capabilities . for atmospheric testing. The net effect would be a quantum jump in Soviet nuclear capabilities which might well gain for them decisive nuclear superiority. Rep, Hosmei* concludes: . "Under such conditions, the West could expect at worst a nuclear Pearl Harbor and at best a surrender-or-die ultimatum."
