Rockefeller, still available for a draft himself, urges New York Republicans to back whoever gets the presidential nomination. At a $100-a-plate state committee dinner Tuesday night, the governor said: "I want us to do everything possible to see to it that when they add up the score to determine who shall succeed our great president. Dwight Ei- : senhower, New York's crucial 45 j electoral votes will be in the Republican column." He made no mention of his party's front runner, Vice President Richard M. Nixon, whom he has called on to speak more fully on major issues to improve Republican prospects in the election. Rockefeller will lead his state's uncommitted delegation to the national convention in Chicago next month.
