Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 13, 1964, Mason City, Iowa r Y N H t I nton to save GOP from Gol WASHINGTON Gov William W Serantoa em barked Saturday on what be de as a Lincolnian crusade to rescue the Republican party from the Goldwater conserva tism he sees as threateninf a GOP defeat in November v Serantoa declared himself in the running for the partys pres idential nomination Friday and received awarm sendoff from many Republican leaders in cluding former President Dwight D Eisenhower and the target of his flew Barry Goldwater of Arizona Goldwater called Scraoton of the outstanding gofer nors in the nation Eisenhower who had urged an open con vention and indicated differ ences with Goldwater welcomed the entry x of whom rhave long admired But Serantoa received any thing butgood wishes from for mer Vice PresidentRichard If Nixon Nixpohad urged some in the ring with Gold water And he declared Friday night that Scranton had a fighting chancel But Nixon said that the gover nor gave a very weak and un fortunate impression on televi sion last Sunday after receiving a telephone call from Eisenhow er advising him not to enter any cabal against any candi date meaning Goldwater Scranton reportedly was ready to announce his candidacy on the program but he told friends call left him uncer tain and shaken Of tau Nixon said If a man receives a telephone call and changes his mind be isnt a very strong manHes got to make his own decisions and not appear to be a puppet maneu vered by someone else Scranton described by various pundits as the Hamlet of Har risburg because of his previous indecision solved his to run or not to ran dilemma and gal loped into the GOP presidential contest Friday in spectacular style He waved his arms smiled shook every hand withinreach at the Maryland StateConven tion in Baltimore and turned out polished phrases attacking Goldwater as a neoneanderthal type who offers only a weird parody to traditional Republi can beliefs1 To make up for H lost time Scranton sets off Saturday in quest of delegates flying to Hartford to address the Con necticut State Republican Con vention He has a lot of catching up to do With the convention or en ing one month away Scranton has only 92 delegates to Gold waters 574 with 655 needed for nomination How anyone could close that chasm was something party professionals couldnt answer New York Gov Nelson A Rockefeller who has found him self fighting it out alone with Goldwater said he was glad to see Scranton joining the battle to give our party a choice But T there was a feeling among many party pros includ ing those who oppose Goldwa ter that Scranton waited too the time is too short and Goldwaters lead too long And Goldwater who is Scran tons commanding officer in an Air Force reserve unit in Wash ington said the governor will have to wage a costly vigor ous campaign to convince dele gates pledged to me that it would be a mistake to stay with me It will be a tough job mused Goldwater It is too late now Replied Scranton at a news conference will wait and see about that one The Pennsylvania governor said he has no illusions about the difficulties lasthour contest against Goldwater I think this will be a strong uphill fight he said I dont deny a minute Every fight I have been in always has been He conceded Ihe hour is late and that Republican mod erates have waited dangerous ly long to call upon our partys conscience upon its wisdom and upon its will I share the responsibility andI admit it with others of our leaders who until now have failed to act he said The thinking among the pro fessional politicians was that if Scranton could gain the GOP nomination he would offer opposition to President Johnson in the key industrial big elec toralvole stales of the East than Goldwater would have US Sen Bourke Hickenlobper of Iowa chairman of the Repub lican Senate Policy Committee says he was i quite surprised by Scraiitohs announcement The lowan said Scrantons sudden determination comes in the wake of his uncertain procrastination for all these weeks and months in the past Hickenlodpers statement con tinued It is possible he may have succumbed to the chores of the left wing press and columnists in the country who would not support Republicans in any event but who strangely enough are trying to tell the Repubii cin Partywhomto nominate aU circumstances this would indeedseem to be a partydestroying Hickenlooper considered a leaning toward Sen BarryGold water said he is still an un committed delegate to the GOP national convention but strange last minute maneuvers of this kind might cause me to becpme committed Sen Jack Millar R Iowa commented It seems a for Gov Scranton to becorrie an ac tive candidate without funning the risk of being accused of leading a stop Goldwater move ment Miller has not been considered a Goldwater supporter Goldwater still gains The newspaper that makes all North lowans neighbors
