individual liberty and free enterprise In the stretch drive to the Nov 3 election Goldwater strategists are counting heavily on two factors 1 Dedicated zeal by his campaign workers the kind of people who put him across at the San Francisco convention and 2 Possible overconfidence on the part of the Democrats A variety of issues figure differently in various parts of the vast West Viet Nam is of concern in Hawaii less so in New Mexico Civil rights and the extent of the possible white backlash are talking points in metropolitan Los Angeles and San Francisco A Yakima Wash housewife said that
