Conservatives still in control of GOP party By CARL LEUBSDORF MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Beneath the Republican euphoria of President Nixon's renomination and hoped-for reelection, the party has ended its national convention with conservative forces securely in control. The party that met here this week ended its sessions with the Ronald Reagans and Barry Goldwaters and John Towers in firm control of Its direction, rather than the Nelson Rockefellers and Charles Percys, as before. In 1968, by contrast, Gov. Rockefeller remained a powerful figure, and there was talk of Percy or New York Mayor John V. Lindsay taking command if Richard Nixon lost that November's election. Nixon won, and though he has used his presidency to move the nation's policies far to the left of traditional Republican views on welfare, Communist China and economic controls, he has made no similar impression on his party. His supporters at work in Miami Beach sided with the party's conservative wing. In the one fight of the convention, over the allocation of delegates for the 1976 GOP gathering, the net of their effort was to strengthen the Southern and Western orientation of the party. It was easy to picture this Issue in terms of a potential fight for the 1976 nomination between Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, favored by the conservatives in the South and West, and Illinois Sen. Percy, the liberal candidate. But this makes a number of assumptions: Nixon's reelection, Percy's re-election — both considered at this time fairly likely — the absence of other major challengers and any candidate's successful performance in the 23- primary obstacle course of 1976. Even the man who formally nominated Agnew for a second vice presidential term, Secretary of the Interior Rogers C. B. Morton, made clear at a news conference that neither Agnew nor anyone else has a lock on the 1976 nomination. Some other challengers can be envisioned: Sen. William Brock of Tennessee, who organized the legions of Nixon youths here, or Indianapolis Mayor Richard G. Lugar, whose eagerness was apparent. The elections this November and in 1974 could produce an array of new faces. For the moment, this is Richard Nixon's party. But his reelection, if achieved, for a second and final term will set off the forces that will determine the party's future leadership. If nothing else, however, the 1972 convention showed that the conservative trend of the 1960s within the GOP — which first became apparent with Goldwater's nomination in 1964 — remains a major fact of life for future Republican presidential contenders to face.

(AP Wirephoto) Read Telegraph Want Ads Daily! A 27-year-old Alton man charged with roaming through a motel wearing no trousers was arrested by Alton police at 10:30 p.m. Thursday. Billy Gene Shearon, whom police listed with a local address of 2300 Locust St., was charged with intoxication and disorderly conduct after his arrest at the Flamingo Motel, 501 E. Broadway. Shearon, who told police he was from Nashville, Tenn., was reported by motel officials as wandering pantsless through the halls and entering several of the motel rooms before his arrest. In other police activity Thursday, officers investigated a burglary at the home of Patricia Hatfield of 603 Leonard St. where a chain hoist was reported stolen. A police report showed the burglar entered through a kitchen door and then the chain hoist removed from the basement. A 22-year-old East Alton man was arrested by Alton police early this morning on charges of unlawful use of weapons, resisting arrest, and speeding. Charged was Terry Allen Hossler of Rte. 1, East Alton. Hossler was first observed driving 42 miles per hour in a 30-mile an hour zone on East Broadway police said. When police stopped Hossler's car at Broadway and Piasa Street, officers spotted a gun in Hossler's belt. The pistol was loaded with some blank cartridges and some empties. When they asked Hossler why he had the gun, police said Hossler replied, "To scare people." Hossler also told police that he was not going to jail, a short time before he was taken to headquarters and a cell. Cars driven by Vicki Regina Federle, 19, of 429 E. Elm St., and Kenneth H.

East was one of those players who liked to bid. He appeared to be holding a five- card diamond suit. With an extra king he would surely have been in the bidding. Therefore, South led a low trump from dummy and played his seven. West won with the 10 and led a second spade. South won and led his queen of trumps. West could cover, duck or go fishing, but South had salvaged the game and rubber. South lost no time losing the first two tricks. Not that he could do anything about it. Dummy's king of diamonds was right in front of East's ace and queen. East shifted to a spade and South let this ride around to dummy. South had lost two tricks and had to get away with just the loss of one trump if he wanted to make his contract. He reflected that it would have been so much nicer jf he had just raised his partner to three no-trump.
