Advocate (Newspaper) - June 6, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 30 TELEPHONE U VICTORIA, TEXAS, SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1964 KfUbUahtd Utt Governors Ask Barry To Appear LBJ, Nixon Also Inviled CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) -An official invitation to Sen. Barry Goldwaler to come to the Na- tional Conference of Governors out Friday night from Cur- tis Lee Smith, chairman of the conference host committee. He said a similar invitation ivas being extended by telegram to former Vice President Rich- ard M. Nixon. This raised a prospect of a sort of Republican candidates' summit session at a conference which always lias insisted it was nonpolitical. LBJ Invited But the partisan aspect was softened by word that Presi- dent Johnson was being invited again to address the 56th annual session of the governors, which gets inio preliminary stages Sat- urday. Johnson had declined a bid to address the slate dinner of the governors on Tuesday night. Acceptance by Goldwater and Nixon of invitations to come to the conference would mean that practically all top possibili- ties for the Republican presiden- tial nomination and Goldwa- ler leads the pack would turn up in Cleveland on Monday night. Ike Coming Covs. William W. Scranton of Pennsylvania and George W. Romney of Michigan are ex- pected to be here, along with Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York. And former President Dwight D.

Eisenhower, of course, is not in the list, but he is the elder statesman of the and has been providing some guidance on where he thinks it should turn- Besides Goldwater and Nixon, Pierre Salinger, former press secretary to the late President John F. Kennedy and the newly nominated Democratic candi- date for the U.S. Senate from California got an invitation to the conference. Feud Mended California Gov. Edmund G. Brown, a Democrat, said short- ly after arriving here Friday night that he understands Sal- inger will come to the gover- nors' conference Monday. The governor said everything has been patched up between him and Salinger and Salinger will get solid party backing in No- vember. The host governor, James A. Rhodes of Ohio, said: "We want to make this the best governors' conference ever." Rhodes is favorite-son candi- date of Ohio's 58-vole delegation to the Republican National Con- vention. The prime mover in getting out the invitations was Rhodes executive assistant, John McEl- roy, who was working obviously for his chief. "The surest way to develop a McElroy said, "is to get them all together." He declined to elaborate. No real signs were in evidence that the conference might pro- vide a Republican lever for at- tempting to derail Goldwater's headlong drive toward the Re publican nomination.

Whether Johnson favored the in- ireases as suggested was not evealed by the informants, but they said Ball made clear that American support in Viet Nam will continue. Ball told correspondents: "I had an interesting and useful discussion with the president." He added he was quite happy with the talks, but would not go into further detail. Atmosphere Friendly The atmosphere was described by both American and French sources as friendly, despite the mown policy differences be- tween De Gaul la and President Johnson's administration. U.S. and French sources said he chief topics were Soulh Viol Nam and Laos. Neither side would say much more about the talks.

Dwight D. Elsenhower never really understood the strategy of the Normandy cam- paign, and seemed "to get the whole thing muddled up." Montgomery's use of the an- niversary program for renewing criticism of Elsenhower ap- peared lo shock many listeners to the television program car- ried by Ihe British Broadcasting Corp. Many telephoned BBC to check whether they had beard him right. BBC was scheduled to broad- cast Saturday night a film re- cording of former President El- senhower, who was supreme Al- lied commander In Europe in World War II and superior. After the Montgomery broad- cast, seme military experts on They took the view that re- marks of a personal nature were not in keeping with a program that was dedicated to demon- strating the teamwork that into D-Day's success 20 years ago. Eisenhower, in Ihe United States, was not avalalble for commeil. In Gettysburg, Pa., a spokes- man (or Elsenhower said the former president would have ao comment on Montgomery's re- (Eisenhower was to residence at his wtate on the edge of the historic Gettysburg Battlefield National Park.) Montgomery critkfced Eis- enhower's wartime strategy In his memoirs published in 1968 and in a lelevtsion Interview shortly afterward. Eisenhower declined comment on the criti- cism bul it was known that he resented H. Eisenhower and Montgomery dined together In London later with several other British war- ;imo commanders and the two talked together jovially. With eyes flashing Montgom- :ry delivered his attack on Els- enhower from a screen on which he appeared in civilian garb. Montgomery's remarks, as is- sued lextually by the BBO: "The strategy of the Norman- dy Invasion waa British and it succeeded because of first-class leamwork on the part of all the forces Cana- dian and American. "I do not believe that Eisen- hower ever really understood the strategy of the Normandy campaign. He seemed lo me to get the whole thing muddled up. The unsound and muddled lUtc- rnmts which were made later by Elsenhower were utterly mon- strous. "They give the impression that the British forces on the eastern flank had failed and hat Ihe American forces had to xill the chestnuts out of the fire 'or them, which of course was not the case. "They tend to play down the fact that invasion of Normandy was a great allied work and that neither ally could possibly have done with- out the other." Earlier In toe program Air Chief Marshal Arthur Tedder, who was deputy supreme com- mander under Eisenhower, com- plained mildly that the BBC pro- gram inclined to give a predoml nantly British version of the Normandy Invasion. Tedder added: "We should not forget that it WAI a team project."
