Rockefeller traded "smear" and "irresponsibility" charges Sunday as the Califor- nia Republican presidential pri- mary moved toward a climax. With the two candidates busy family matters, former William F. Knowland spoke for Goldwater and Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel for Rockefeller in a na- tionally televised clash. Knowland accused Rockefel- ler's supporters of employing smear techniques in the contest at the polls Tuesday between the Arizona senator and the Naw York governor for the state's 86 Republican presidential nomi- nating delegates. 'Changed Position Kuchel criticized what he called the irresponsibility of Delegates at Stake A Goldwater victory could touch oft a surge for Ihe senator at stale conventions to be held later in the week in Alabama, Colorado, Washington aiid Ha- waii, and other conventions later in June. A Rockefeller victory, especi- ally a big one, might keep some of those delegates on the fence. It also would give the governor control of the two largesl dele- gations, since he is expected lo win mosl of the 82 New York district delegates to be chosen Tuesday and all of 10 al-large delegates to be chosen later. Also to be decided in a pri- mary election Tuesday is who will carry South Dakota's 14 votes lo the GOP convention in uncommitted slate or one favoring Goldwaler.

He said his senatorial colleague, top man in convenlion voting strength at this point, has "changed his position several limes on important issues." Knowland said Rockefeller's accusations that Goldwater rep- resents an extremist clement in the Republican party are part of the "smear" he said has been laid against his candidate in weeks of bitter campaigning in the last of the major contested primaries.
