(AP Photofax) Closing Gap In Nomination Drive By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. Barry Goldwater appears to be piling up backlog support among publicly uncommitted delegates which could strengthen his bid for first-ballot Republican presidential nomination. If the Arizona senator wins the June 2 California primary arid adds that state's 86 conven- tion votes to his total, his strate- gists now believe he will come close to having 600 of the 655 needed for the nomination.

A fifth plane, a U.S. Air Force supersonic fighter, crashed the Philippines today but the ilot parachuted to safety. The four fatal crashes oc- urred Monday in the Philip- ilnes, off Spain, in southern England and in Alabama. At Clark Air Bate north of Manila, a U.S. Military Air 'ransport jetliner with 83 per- ons aboard crashed short of a runway and burst into flames. Seventy-three persons died n he wreckage and another two died in the base hospital. The other victim was an American serviceman riding in a taxi which the plane struck as it headed for the runway, the Air Force said. The eight people on boarc who survived the crash were in the base hospital. The Filipim cab driver and another Ameri can passenger in the taxi were hospitalized.

Jerome Yelk of Eagle Riv- er brought two bloodhounds to the area Monday and the sheriff's department said the animals followed the boy's trail to the edge of the lake. Skin divers and a drag- ging crew found nothing in their search of the lake and a flyover Monday morning by the Civil Air Patrol also failed to disclose the where- abouts of the boy, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Buch- berger. Sheriff Lee Arnlz of Chip- pewa County said he doubts if foul play was involved and said "a pretty thorough search has been made." 7 Injured in Rioting At Cambridge, Md. U.S. Won't Permit Castro To Stop Flights By JOSEPH E.

'They point to Wisconsin, far down the roll-call line, as a like- ly sour.ce of Goldwater support in such circumstances. The state's 30 votes are pledged to Rep. John W. Byrnes in a fav- orite son holding operation. This served its principal pur- pose when it kept major con- tenders out of the slate pri- mary, in which Democrats could cross over. Goldwater del- egates probably won't feel they have any further obligation to Byrnes if the Arizona senator needs them. Kentucky also seems likely to offer Goldwater some additional votes if he moves up within striking distance of the nomina- tion as the roll call proceeds. Kentucky is expected to cast its 24 votes on the first call for Sen. Thruston B. Morton as a favorite son. But Morton said he will release immediately any delegate who might ask to change his vote. He said Gold- water had the support of about 15 Kentucky delegates. The calculations of the Gold- water strategists are all built on the assumption that their man will bowl over New York Gov.

Rockefeller in the Cal- ifornia primary- They already have written off Oregon's Friday primary as a loss, with the expectation that Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge will win that slate's 18 votes. Rep.

"I don't think anybody knows what caused this an Air Force spokesman said. "There was nothing in the plane's be- havior that could give a clue to any mechanical failure." No indication of distress came from the pilot as he brought the big jet in from Hickam Air Base, Hawaii. Landing in a rainstorm, the plane struck a 42-foot antenna like aircraft navigational aid just inside the base fence, hil the taxi on a road running along the base perimeter, and broke up in flames. The C135 was on a troop air- lift mission from Travis Air Base, Calif. It was to return sick and injured personnel to the United States. The Air Force said the crash was the first involving a C13 in the Western Transport Air Force, and only the second fo a MATS C135 in more than 7 million miles the service ha flown the big planes since Jun 1961. In the other fatal crashes: A 24-hour air and sea searc failed to find the 10 crewme of a U.S. Navy long-range pa trol plane that crashed at se 20 miles off Cadiz, Spain.

The secretary was seeking NATO support for the U.S. trade embargo of the Commu- nist island, a customer of such major American allies as Brit- ain and France. Opening the three-day spring meeting of the NATO Council of. Foreign Ministers, Rusk de- clared that all Communist ag- gression must be eradicated to insure the security of the non- Communist world. This ap- peared to be a reference to South Viet Nam as well Cuba. Rusk described a crisis over Cuba as one for the whole West- ern world not just for the Unit- ed States.
