If a mutually acceptable platform is adopted. Morton said this possibly could serve as the catalytic agent to bring together a Nixon-Rockefeller ticket. He said this would make "a very strong ticket." But the national chairman listed this only as a possibility, since he said Rockefeller had been "very adamant" in saying that he wouldn't take second place on the ticket. Leading Possibility As for himself, Morton said he doesn't want the vice presidential nomination and is not seeking it. Nevertheless he is regarded as a leading possibility for the place, which Nixon will fill with the man he wants if he becomes the presi- i change his mind and take the vice today.

Cooper, a former ambassador and himself one of those mentioned-for the No. 2 nomination, said fee-believes Rockefeller would add strength to the ticket. He said he feels Rockefeller's views on international questions should be officially embraced by the Republicans. But Cooper conceded he hadn't made much progress. He said Rockefeller took the position that he could be of more sendee to the country as a goyernor than as vice president. Rockefeller's word that he won't take the second-place nomination was accepted at face value by Leonard W. Hall, former GOP national chairman and Nixon's convention leader. "We have to take him at his jers' licenses. Three received suspensions for committing three moving traffic violations. They are: Edwin W. Bennett, Wood River, two month suspension; Billy D. Kirby, Alton, indefinite suspension; and James F. Yates, Wood River, two month suspension. Donald D.

He said Rockefeller and Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona might oppose Nixon but added he doesn't believe any final decisions have been made. The chairman said he has heard reports that Rockefeller has from 150 to 400 delegate votes. Nixon is credited with more than 1.000 against the necessary 666. Nixon, meanwhile, was reported taking a direct hand in shaping the convention's farm plank. One of Nixon's toughest campaign tasks, if he gets the top nomination next Wednesday as expected, will be to try to win the i : tion in the field of human affairs seems to be based in many instances on the assumption that it is the duty of the national government to bail out any and all segments of the population from the consequences of their own errors, negligence, apathy and irresponsibility," Bannow said. The Chamber of Commerce of the United States expressed a similar view. Its president Arthur H. Motley told platform writers that U. S. tax rates are too high and tax laws too complex. He said tax reform is needed to stimulate job-creating investment. In another platform hearing, Sen. Kenneth B. Keating of New York challenged Democrats to trot out their bold civil rights plank and try to get it enacted when the Democratic-controlled Congress meets again next month. Keating contended that only the Republicans can bring an end to racial discrimination.
