Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 13, 1964, Mason City, Iowa OWd s remain ne By ROBERT H SPIiGf L Editor A divided Iowa delegation ihied away from a presidential preference vote in its first cau cus here Sunday evening There were estimates of the groups divisjon however with less than 72 hours left to the final convention countdown Maurice Van Noslrand of Avoca cochairman of lowans for Goldwater and an observer here said I pledged 15 delegates to Cold water in a telegram to the senator on Wednesday I think J can maybe round up 18 by the time the vote is taken Wednesday night George Nagle of Iowa City a delegate and former Iowa GOP chairman had another version There is a very good chance that we will go into the conven tion with the delegation evenly divided 1212 This represents a substantial trend toward Gov William Scranton Originally the backers of Sen Barry Gold water claimed twothirds of the delegation Talks with uncommitted or uncertain delegates led to a middle 1311 or 1410 favoring Goldwater Iowas two senators remain uncommitted on the record Scranton people long have as signed Sen Bourke 13 Ilicken looper the delegation chair man to the side of Goldwater however Hickenlooper who survived a marathon platform committee session that lasted 20 hours 10 am Saturday to 6 am Sun said only I will base my vote primarily on the one who has the best chance next November if his position is not incompatible with the best in terests of Iowa Miller commenting after the secret caucus said he was re serving judgment His statement to the Globe Gazette however pushed him close to the Arizona Senator Miller said we are out here to nominate two men not one None of the polls Ive seen has pitted a Republican team against a Democratic team and remember John Kennedy didnt defeat Richard Nixon in 1960 The KennedyLyndon Johnson team beat our team The Iowa Senator ciidnt shut the door on a GoldwatcrScran lon ticket though the two principals have Miller criticized some of the very bad tactics used by some of the Scranton forces since polls were taken These have been disdainful cutting approaches Asked for examples Miller said There have been charges against Goldwalcr of impulsive ness negative foreign policy and shooting from the hip things like that My impression of Iowa lie publicans is that they arc op posed to a Republican cutting up another Republican Perhaps the man most on the spot is Atty Gen Evan Hult man the Iowa GOP candidate for governor Hultman has said he needs all the help he can get against Gov Harold E Hughes next fall He has kept his silence on the presidential nomination The odds seem to be however that he will vote for Scranton The same goes for Bob Ray of DCS Moines the state chairman Ray has studiously stayed in the middle Gold walcr for nearly a half hour in his room at the MarkHilton Ho tel and aiso seeing ScranVon Ray said however that he be lieves Naglcs estimate a 1212 vote is an accurate one Im still reserving my deci sion but it will be based on what the rankandfile Republi cans in Iowa want I cant ignore the polls in Iowa even though they arent 100 per cent accurate They still are so much in favor of Scran ton they must be recognized Among the uncommitted those Considered most favorable to Goldwalcr arc Mrs Anna Lomas of Red Oak and Charles Willenmeyer the national com mitteeman from Davenport Dr A L Yocum of Chariton however said that there has been a reversal of sentiment in his district It is going increasingly to so am I he said Jack Warren of Waterloo a trucking firm owner put it plainly My interest is in Curly Hultman Where he goes I go One of the most uncom mitted is William F Koebler of Charles City A visit with him after the Sunday caucus found him still looking things over He said his voluminous mail now mere than 300 pieces is split evenly between Goldwater ind Scraa fcn rv I The same applies to Oscar J Elsenbast of Cedar Rapids William Ruther aBurlington banker spoke for the proGold water forces when he said I think Goldwater can carry the state There are enough dedU cated Goldwater people to do the I think he can beat Johnson too The Iowa delegation drew choice seats at the Cow Palace They are behind a small Maina group at the very front of the hall just to the left as you look at the rostrum Fast editor gets Scranton interview Sixty seconds with Scranton Beat mob to door after press conference Fell in wiHi the governor and hit Kept position on escalator heading for door of stylish Hilton Hotel How do you intend to make use of the estimated 500000 wires and Urteri you have received Scranton We have to get them to the delegates in each state to do any good Theyre separated in bins he said Illinois mail led all We have four plans for distribution but arent sure which well Will that enough to influence the delegates I think so Many anyway Is there a chance of a Scranton march on San Francisco Wed like very much to have one but it would be awfully difficult to organiie End of escalator It is obvious that Scranton still has hopes for swaying the Illinois delegation through pressure of the peoples will There now are 48 of 53 Illinois delegates in the Goldwater camp The state comes early on the roll call and a switch here could pack emotional appeal creating a switch his way Few observers believe this can happen Barry leads at start of convention
