Rockefeller says it's "realistic" to look upon his remarriage as seriously damaging his chances for the 1964 Republican presidential nomina- aon. "I have a very deep understanding of the reactions of individuals in this situation," he said >unday night in a televsion inter- rew—NBC's "Meet the Press." 'I have no sense but one of feeing for people's concern. "I think it is a situation which Marriage Hurt Chance In Vote: Rockefeller Didn't Pay; Arrested for Taking Item William Herron, 22, of the 1300 block of Goodfellow Blvd., St. Louis, was fined $10 and costs today on two charges by Police Magistrate Gerge Roberts after pleading guilty on charges of petty larceny and carrying a concealed weapon. Herron was arrested about 12:20 p.m. Sunday by Alton polie after the proprietor of Clarkson Brother's Service Station, 50 E. Elm St., complained to police that a man had taken a brake fluid hose valued at $2.30 without paying for it. Clarkson said that the man had ordered the hose and promised to pick it up later. He appeared, took the hose, and left while Clarkson was busy with other customers. Investigating officers found a man answering a description given by Clarkson at Delia and Riley Ave., and took him to t h e service station for identification. They found a section of brake hose under the seat of his car, police said. Clarkson identified Herron and preferred charges against him. At the police station police found that Herron was carrying a long-bladed pocket knife andn charged him with carrying a con- ealed weapon. in political life is difficult." He expanded his views further today in an interview in U.S News & World Report. Commenting on his divorce and remarriage he said: "I think that the reaction on that subject is a highly personal one with all people. Until such time as there is an occasion when hey have to make a decision, it's lard to tell exactly what that reaction will be. "But when an individual has to make a decision, whether it's in a convention or in the voting booth, then I think that he wil bring that factor, along with al of the other factors, into balance and make a decision. The collective effort of all the people's de cisions would, of course, give the answer." He noted that the Gallup Pol now has Sen. Barry Goldwater o Arizona in the lead for the nom ination, but said he believes some one else could end up with the big prize. As for Qoldwater, the Arizonian said in an AP interview that i he decides to go after the presi dential nomination, one of the main reasons would be his belie that as had of the ticket he could help Republicans get elected t< the House and Senate in the South, Midwest and West. "Win, lose or draw, if I wen the nominee, I believe I could help get a lot of Republican elected," he said. Goldwater stuck to his positioi that he won't make up his mind until January about seeking th nomination. Rockefeller set an earlier time table. He said in the television in terview he would announce hi decision before the end of this year—perhaps in November. On his charge that the Republi can party was in "real danger o subversion by a radical, well-fi nanced and highly disciplined mi nority, he was asked if he coulc say who was leading and financ inj; that "disciplined minority." "No," said Rockefeller, "it very hard and that is one of the problems."
